Peek Inside Talking Dirty With the Boss

There’s something about Marisa Clair’s hot and exceedingly uptight boss, and she can’t seem to stop ruffling Mr. Tall, Dark and Irritating. The very last thing financial consultant Luke McNamara needs is a sassy blonde putting lipstick on his collar and messing with his routine. Their plans to steer clear of one another are shot to hell after a hot office encounter. Now the two of them will have to learn to get along as they face a much more permanent reminder of their lack of self-control–a pregnancy.

Marisa Clair wants to get her artist dreams back on track after a life detour. That means no partying, no shopping…and definitely no men to distract her. Should be easy, but there’s something about her hot and exceedingly uptight boss and she can’t seem to stop herself from ruffling Mr. Tall, Dark and Irritating.

Financial consultant Luke McNamara lives his life strictly by schedule – his OCD simply won’t allow him to do anything else. And the very last thing he needs is a sassy blonde putting lipstick on his collar and messing with his routine. She annoys the hell out of him so why can’t he stop thinking about the color of her panties…and how free he feels when he’s with her?

Marisa and Luke’s plans to steer clear of one another are shot to hell after a hot office encounter. Now the two of them will have to learn to get along as they face a much more permanent reminder of their lack of self-control – a pregnancy.

Sometimes a book just hits you and makes you think and Talking Dirty With The Boss is one of atruegemawardthose books. Honestly, I expected it to be fun and flirty and even naughty and while there ...more

Luke has a little attitude and I really just want to give him an adjustment, "oh, was that what is was?" With a quick movement, he put the phone away in his pocket, then twitched the cuffs of his jacket. "Do you want to dance or not?" I mean the man really can be rude at times, "I don't want to slee ...more

Oh, yet another brilliant story from Jackie. I loved Joseph and Christie's story and this one is just as good. Luke and Marisa are just brilliant as a couple and I really enjoyed getting to know them and then be with them through their story. Funny, sexy, warm, romantic - I just loved it. ...more

Because a person has a disorder doesn’t mean that they are crazy, they are just different than others. If a person truly loves them it will not matter if they have a disorder it’s them as a person, the person they are in the inside that counts not their compulsion. That is what true love is.

By Debbie April 28, 2015

This book had me laughing out loud in parts and sad in others. The hero, Luke, is OCD. He has it badly, a fact he does his best to hide from the world. Marissa works for him. She's out-going, fun-loving, and hates playing by the rules. Something Luke insists on. When he reprimands her for violating ...more

By Jessica April 04, 2015

Wow. I absolutely loved this. I picked it up on a whim and even though my kindle is FULL of unread books, there was something about this one that caught my eye. I read it all in one sitting and I'm so glad I decided to buy this one. Sometimes these romance books can all feel the same, but I loved Lu ...more

I loved Talking Dirty With The Boss!

Luke and Marisa are total opposites, they drive each other crazy!
Marisa would push all of Luke's buttons just to get a reaction from him, she had me laughing with some of the things she came out with :)
Poor Luke, he's at a loss with trying to understand h ...more

Hahaha so damn cute!!!
Admittedly, I didn't like much either of the main characters at first. They were both kind if annoying. Then I started to like Marisa. And a little later on in the story I started to like Luke too. Well, not all the time though. But he could be pretty sweet at times. And kinda ...more

By Ipshita August 24, 2017

Good Lord! Is there no end to stupid heroines? What does she supposes would happen if she keeps baiting her boss? That he'd give her a promotion? Well, he does go hot and cold for her later but that's beyond the rationality of the topic. Anyhow, she does improve later in the story which is why
I'm d ...more

By Jessica May 05, 2015

Luke is hot! OCD or not, he is too sexy at times in the book. Very steamy, romantic read. I normally don't like it when the female character gets pregnant right away in the book but it worked here because it wasn't about the baby or the pregnancy. It was a sweet, heart-tugging story about a couple t ...more

By Christina January 04, 2014

I loved all the books in this series but this was my favorite. I didn't relate to the characters as well, but their emotions were so real that didn't matter. I loved them and I rooted for them.

Severe OCD is an unusual character trait but it was so interesting to step away from the norm. I'm pretty ...more

Homigoodness, this was actually a really good book!!

We have a tortured hero, Luke, who has OCD to a point where he has to 'check' things over (and sometimes over, and over, and over) in order to function. He runs a company and is very serious about nobody finding out about his difficulties, so he ha ...more

Completely AMAZING romance with the Sexiest OCD hero

Oh my goodness how I loved this book!! This OCD CEO hero was the absolute most interesting intelligent man that I’ve read about recently that you can’t help falling for especially because of how he’s forced to interact with heroine Marisa !!
These ...more

I loved this book

When I met Marisa in the other books I wasn't sure I would like her. I absolutely love Luke the OCD makes him human. The emails were great and funny. I suggest you read this one and it will make the experience richer to read them all. ...more

This is the third story in a trilogy of interrelated, but standalone, stories about three relationships. That is, characters, scenes, and events from this story appear in the two other stories.

As with the second story in this trilogy, Talking Dirty With the Player, this story opens at the wedding r ...more

Rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
This was another book that I stayed up late for. It sucked me in so hard. Talk about passion and angst. So much of it was like a modern day, old-skool Harlequin Presents: rich, broody hero meets interoffice secretary, lots of unwanted lust, surprise pregnancy, a ton of passion ...more

By Evelyn September 03, 2016

I've read all 3 in the series, and although book 1 is still my fav, I really liked this book. The author has a quirky/dirty sense of humor and I love it! We've been introduced to these characters previously so it was nice to get their full story. One thing that I really did like about the way the au ...more

Posted on What I'm Reading

Yesterday, I finished Talking Dirty with the Boss by Jackie Ashenden. All right I have been waiting sometime for this story, because I have enjoyed the other books. I have to say that I did like the story.

Like Joseph, Luke McNamara has a bit of quirk. He isn't your typical ...more

Oh man, this book easily made my favourites list! Super-sweet, vulnerably sexy H, super-sweet, vulnerably sexy h, super-sweet, sexy short read altogether!

I love how realistically Luke's OCD issues were portrayed and, just like in Book 1, how sensitively it was dealt with-again, by showing there's no ...more

By Nicola December 14, 2013

I have to say I have loved the 'Talking Dirty' series; the characters, their quirks, traits and personalities and their budding romances have made each endearing and realistic in their own way. Talking Dirty with the Boss is a good addition to the series, but it was in a similar vain to the first bo ...more

By Medormad April 30, 2014

Carino! Ci sono un paio di cose che mi hanno fatto storcere il naso e alzare gli occhi al cielo, ma è interessante leggere di un personaggio con un disturbo ossessivo-compulsivo e c'è da dire che l'autrice lo fa benissimo, in modo accurato e realistico. Una lettura breve e piacevole... Qualche pecca ...more

About the author

Jackie Ashenden

Jackie has been writing fiction since she was eleven years old. Mild mannered fantasy/SF/pseudo-literary writer by day, obsessive romance writer by night, she used to balance her writing with the more serious job of librarianship until a chance meeting with another romance writer prompted her to throw off the shackles of her day job and devote herself to the true love of her heart - writing romance. She particularly likes to write dark, emotional stories with alpha heroes who've just got the world to their liking only to have it blown wide apart by their kick-ass heroines. She lives in Auckland, New Zealand with her husband, the inimitable Dr Jax, two kids, two cats and some guppies (possibly dead guppies by the time you read this). When she's not torturing alpha males and their stroppy heroines, she can be found drinking chocolate martinis, reading anything she can lay her hands on, posting random crap on her blog, or being forced to go mountain biking with her husband.
