Talk To Me by Clare James - Book Review

Title: Talk to Me (Public Lives, #1)
Author: Clare James
Release Date: June 9, 2014
Genre: Steamy New Adult Romance
*Caution: This story contains explicit sex scenes with an alpha hockey player...who gives an entirely new meaning to the term Body Checking. *

Finn Daley took the world by storm two years ago when he was drafted by the NHL. The young, handsome, high-scoring player quickly became a fan favorite. He had everything going for him: fame, fortune, a promising career, and his pick of women. But when he made an abrupt exit from the NHL last spring, everything changed and he’s been in hiding ever since.

Casey Scott plans to find out why.

After interning for free all summer at the top television station in the Twin Cities, Casey lands an on-air gig. Trouble is, the new role is Sports Girl—which means reporting from local bars and tailgating parties to create excitement for the hometown heroes. All while wearing tiny team jerseys that are so tight they leave little to the imagination.

But she has a plan. Uncover the biggest sports mystery of the decade, and she’ll be on her way. Question is, how far will she go to get the story?

What happened to him? What went wrong why he needed to quit hockey?

It has been the driving force of the novel, and Clare James would kill you with curiosity, because answers weren’t exactly given, instead clues were placed, until you can’t help yourself but wonder, formulate and hypothesized what went wrong with him and his career.

Maybe that’s why I couldn’t stop reading this novel, because I was hoping to get some answers. This man was at the top of his career. Finn Daley was young, sexy, hot, high scoring player, and definitely a fan favorite. He got into booze, and girls, and the suddenly, he just decided to quit and became a recluse.

He was an enigma I wanted to solve.

As for Casey – she wanted to be a respected journalist, but the only opportunity that is near to her dreams was to become a Sports Girl on TV. It wasn’t really what she wanted, but she was desperate for a job, most likely related to media/journalism, she took the gig. I just wished, she’d stop whining about how she didn’t like it and instead be like Mac, who took it as an opportunity. There was nothing wrong with being a Sports Girl. It was a decent job that would provide her exposure. And most especially, it pays the bills. If she’d only be patient, and enjoy the ride.

She has a plan though, she wanted to uncover the biggest mystery in recent sports history. It will help her in her career, but how far is she willing to go?

The attraction was there, the chemistry was strong, and the sexual tension was mind-blowing! I fell in love with the mystery, and the ending is killing me. Nevertheless, it was a short read that kept me in the wee hours. I can’t wait for the next one in the series!

STEAM: 4.5
