Cade wiped his fingers on a napkin and took another big bite. I loved watching his obvious
pleasure in my baking. There was something so sensual about the way he enjoyed eating my

“I should be mad at you, you know.” He eyed the brownies in the display case with a hopeful
expression, so I got him another one and added it to his plate while he downed his glass of

“Why would you be mad at me? I bake good brownies and have nice boobs, remember?” I
topped off his milk with a smile.

“That’s exactly why. I’m adding an extra two miles to my daily run to make up for all this good
eating, and I’ve been suffering from UHO’s for days.” He took another greedy bite of brownie.

“What is a UHO?” I frowned and put my chin in my hand, studying him. “Should I be worried?”

“An Unexpected Hard On.” Cade delivered that line with a perfectly straight face, but I snorted
with laughter and shook my head at him.

“Don’t laugh, missy. You try meeting with clients while having stray thoughts about the hot
baker girl down the street. Then deal with the fallout. I’ve had three meetings where I had to
hold my notepad in my lap to cover up the evidence.” He picked a brownie crumb off his shirt.

“I’m so sorry for your inconvenience.” I tried for a straight face to match his but failed

“Don’t be sorry. I know a good remedy for UHO’s. I’ll be soliciting your help with that at some
point.” He licked his lips in anticipation, and I shivered.

Cade noticed my shiver, and his grin got wider. “Now about karaoke night. It’s tonight, actually.”

“Really? I thought it was a weekend thing.” I took his empty plate and put it in the dishwasher.

“I think it usually is, but when I asked the manager at Maude’s about it, he said come tonight,
and he would get us set up. I’m noticing things are pretty informal at Maude’s.” He drank his
milk in three big swallows, and I watched his throat work with interest.

Why was that so sexy?

And it was even sexier when he came around the counter and rinsed his glass before placing
it in the dishwasher, too.

I appreciated a man with a sexy body, but one who knew how to clean up after himself? That’s
what really made me weak in the knees. At this rate, if he started washing dishes by hand, I
might have no choice but to strip naked for him.

Cade pulled me close and nuzzled my hair. I buried my nose in his chest and inhaled his
manly scent. And we stayed that way for several long minutes, just enjoying a full body hug.

This was bliss.

Review: Sweet Talk is the first book by Ashley Hastings that I've read. I love discovering new
authors, and when those new authors can make me laugh, that's an even bigger plus.

Within the first few pages of the book, I was giggling. That's a big plus for me.

What can I say about Casey and Cade? I loved these two very different people. I really love
how they met. Let's just say, there was a pig involved. (No more spoilers from me)

The best part of this story were the letters her Uncle Bob wrote to her, to be given to her after
his passing. I also love how in a round about way, he was helping her move on with her life.

His bucket list activities were great and sometimes romantic.

I loved Casey, but I had some issues with Cade. He was a little immature for an attorney, not
that attorneys can't be fun loving folks, but so many of his actions made him seem childish to

The other things that kept this from being a perfect read were the conflicts and how they
weren't really conflicts. Casey seems unable to argue with Cade. Every time something bad
happened, Cade was in the thick of it, but he's all too quickly forgiven.

This was an enjoyable read, but it could have been made better by a little more length to help
some of the situations to play out better
