When research for an article on online dating leads gadget journalist Christie St. John to the bed of Joseph Ashton - the hottest guy she’s ever met - she wants more than a one-night stand.

Gadget journalist Christie St. John is more geek than chic. But when research for an article she has to write on online dating leads to the bed of the hottest guy she’s ever met, she knows that if the geek is to keep the hottie CEO, she’s going to have to come out of her digital shell.

Tech mogul Joseph Ashton never expected an Internet blind date to end in the best sex of his life. Yet as the chemistry between him and Christie burns out of control, he can’t help but think this woman is out for his money like all the rest. She claims she wants his heart instead – but that’s the one thing he can never give.

"Jackie Ashenden has a very humorous voice laced with a lot of dry wit and I've said it before and will say it again: humor gets me every time! Combine it with sexy and sensuous and I'm a fan for life! " -- Maggie Reads Rom, Goodreads

The reason I desperately wanted to read this book wasn't because of the cover, though it's a fabulously genius cover, it was because of the title! I unashamedly confess to being a dirty-talk junkie and when a title includes any form or the combination of the words dirty and talk, I'm ...more

This was a really nice surprise. It was free or maybe .99 cents, but was worth way more. The H and h were really fleshed out and I understood both of them. Their relationship was a lot of fun to watch develop. The steamy times were very steamy! The drama wasn't over the top or caused by others. The ...more

Every once in a while, I try to read a New Adult or Erotica. However, I can't say that I'm always impressed with the books in these genres. So I was quite dismayed to find the MC picturing the hero in "leopard-print
thong, baby oil, and…and a smile", fortunately I soon realised that it was only a jok ...more

I had this book on my to read pile because it featured a geeky girl who was very smart and knowledgeable. I love heroines like that. I was thrilled when I was able to get my hands on an advanced copy of this book.

I really enjoyed it! There is great chemistry between the lead characters and the dialo ...more

This book was super hot! Not alot going on other than the relationship in the book and the hero/heroine's struggles, so it was very direct and too the point, didn't make your mind wonder to areas that didn't matter. Author did a great job keeping focus and making the relationship steamy, the problem ...more

By Fiona May 11, 2013

I have to say that I find Jackie Ashenden’s hero’s fascinating. They are so real in terms of the way they think and interact with the world. Like Finn in her earlier release, this heroe is an alpha with a soft gooey centre. Joseph has a secret that he believes makes it impossible to sustain a relati ...more

She accidentally sent an inappropriate email to the CEO.
They started bantering and somehow doing each other.
He has OCD and he's afraid that once she knew about it, she will leave her.
He also thinks that he might end up hurting her because of it. ...more

By Susan in Perthshire September 13, 2019

Making my way through Jackie’s back catalogue and discovered this trilogy. I loved Joseph and Christie. As always, Jackie makes her characters very real with her inclusion of factors which affect them such as the AD/HD and unsupportive families. Fabulous story development with a H/h who charmed me f ...more

By Heather in FL June 23, 2015

This was a really cute story. We have Christie, who is a tech writer and a bit of a shy geek. She stutters when she gets nervous, and she's really into gaming. And we have Joseph, who has ADHD and is CEO of a prosperous tech company. They meet when Joseph sees her chatting in a gaming chat room on o ...more

By McGee Magoo December 13, 2013

Based on the "Talking Dirty" part of the title, I figured I'd have to like it. But I also thought it could go the other way for me considering it had "The CEO" in the title as well. Millionaire/Billionaire playboy heroes aren't my favorite type of hero, but I figured I'd give this one a shot because ...more

Christie St John is a geek! She loves nothing more than playing computer games and going on online tech forums. I did wonder why Christie chose her online name of 'NaughtyGirl' for a tech site though?! Christie is a Journalist for a Tech Magazine, she loves all things tech. I liked Christie. She's v ...more

The moment I read the blurb for Talking Dirty with the CEO I knew I had to read it, so I signed up for an ARC of the book from Entangled Publishing.

This was a fun read. Right away it opened with sizzling dialogue...and I just loved the premise. I instantly liked Christie. She's an "every-girl" heroi ...more

A happenstance encounter in an online gaming chat room begins the wild relationship between Christie St. John and Joseph Ashton in Talking Dirty with the CEO by Jackie Ashden. Expecting to go out and have a good time, neither expects to start the torrid affair that follows.

I liked both characters, a ...more

Joseph likes to always bring up those pleasant memories, “what? You mean apart from the fact that Liz just introduced you?” Joseph folded his arms. “Well, here’s a reminder. You on the bathroom vanity. Me inside you while you screamed in my ear.” Joseph beloved him, he can be stupid at times but he ...more

Christie and Joseph met on a whim. Bored in a meeting and having to get entail for a writing piece. Required items, Ugg boots, sheepskin rug, leopard print thong, and Neil Diamond. What they got was a convenient vanity, bike ride, an interview, and acceptance. The Ugg boots came later.

This was a nic ...more

Talking Dirty With The CEO was a great read. It was hot, fun, light and a perfect beach read. It hit all the right notes without becoming boring or silly. Jackie has a fantastic way of writing which I love and the story just took over until all of a sudden it was finished. I love when a book can do ...more

Way better (and cuter) than the title would lead you to believe. Basically it's "Computer nerds fall in love." Loved it. ...more

By Romance4thebeach July 07, 2019

I positively LOVED this book! We’re not really dealing with “dirty talk” so much as ironically sarcastic flirtation, which apparently is just as good!

Yes, technically CEO is in the title, but this really isn’t your typical billionaire romance. Believe me, you won’t be making comparisons to 50 Shades ...more

By Karen March 01, 2019

A really good read.

I fell in love with the characters. I could also relate to the characters since I'm the black sheep of my family and like Christie never felt like I fit in with my family or any where really. I also have stutter when I talk especially if I'm really nervous or anxious. Like the cha ...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.
