Review: Dirty Thoughts by Megan Erickson
Some things are sexier the second time around.
Cal Payton has gruff and grumbly down to an art…all the better for keeping people away. And it usually works. Until Jenna Macmillan—his biggest mistake—walks into Payton and Sons mechanic shop all grown up, looking like sunshine, and inspiring more than a few dirty thoughts.
Jenna was sure she was long over the boy she’d once loved with reckless abandon, but one look at the steel-eyed Cal Payton has her falling apart all over again. Ten years may have passed, but the pull is stronger than ever…and this Cal is all man.
Cal may have no intention of letting Jenna in, but she’s always been his light, and it’s getting harder to stay all alone in the dark. When a surprise from the past changes everything, Cal and Jenna must decide if their connection should be left alone, or if it’s exactly what they need for the future of their dreams.

Alright, I have met Megan Erickson in person several times, and she is a sweet heart, and I absolutely adore her. That being said, I had a love-hate relationship with this book. This is the tale of second chances. Cal and Jenna were together and in-love when they were 18 and then life got in the way, 10 years late, Jenna is back and it looks like things are still hot and heavy between them. I loved the contrast between Cal and Jenna. Cal is all grungy, sexy, dirty mechanic while Jenna is all sweet, heels, and publicity director. I also really enjoyed the curve balls that came with this book and the car knowledge, both were and unexpected and pleasant surprise.
My biggest pet-peeve with this book was the back and forth. Cal and Jenna went back and forth just one too many times. Should we be together, should we stay away from each other. I wanted to reach into the book and slap Cal upside his thick skull in the hopes of knocking some sense into him *sigh…men*. Otherwise, this book is hot, steamy, and really sexy.
