About the Book

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.

He was flipping the cap of the water in his fingers and finishing the last of the bottle when Brent poked his head in the back room. “Hey.”
Cal raised his eyebrows.
“Someone’s asking for you.”
Cal tossed the empty bottle in the trash. “The Graingers?”
“Nope, they just came and got the Subaru and left. This is a new customer.”
Cal threw the empty bottle in the recycling bin, turned off the light to the back room, and followed his brother out to the garage. “We’re closing soon. Is it an emergency? Are they regulars?” He pulled a rag out of his pocket and began to wipe his dirty hands. He thought about washing them first in case this customer wanted to shake hands.
Brent didn’t answer him, didn’t even look at him over his shoulder.
And that was when a small sliver of apprehension trickled down his spine. “Brent—”
His brother whirled around and held his arm out as they walked past a Bronco their dad had been working on. “I think it’s better if you take this one.”
Cal squinted into the sun and when his eyes adjusted to the light, her legs were the first thing he saw. And he knew—he fucking knew—because how many times had he sat in class in high school staring at those legs in a little skirt, dreaming about when he could get back between them? It’d been a lot.
His eyes traveled up those bare legs to a tiny pair of denim shorts, up a tight tank top that showed a copious amount of cleavage, and then to that face that he’d never, ever forget as long as he lived.
He never thought he’d see Jenna MacMillan again. And now, there she was, standing in front of his garage next to a Dodge Charger, her brunette hair in a wavy mass around her shoulders.

After meeting Cal and Brent, Max's brothers from MAKE IT RIGHT, which is the second book in the Bowler University New Adult Series by Megan, I said...damn those two sexy Mechanics need books, especially Cal.  I wanted to know why he was such a grump...and bet he was good in bed...hee hee...and if you were wondering...he so good,and very sexy in all his grumpiness!

DIRTY THOUGHTS is such a great romance and just what I needed to get me out of my slump.  Cal and Jenna were so easy to love and Megan gives just the right amount of hint here and there to keep you reading.  DIRTY THOUGHTS was a bit of an addiction!  

The story line flowed perfectly, and the surprises just kept coming.  Cal and Jenna have the past to compete with, and it was a bitter-sweet past, but the good sometimes outweighs the bad, and in this case, Cal just needs to get out of his own way!  I will say that Dylan (the asshole) or Dill Pickle as Delilah refers to him as, doesn't make it easy for Cal to take the high road.  Like Cal doesn't have enough on his plate with all the "Family" drama that comes to his door...and it was a SHOCK for those of us who read MAKE IT RIGHT.

Readers who love a second chance romance will want to add DIRTY THOUGHTS to their Summer Must Read list!  If you are a lover of Rachel Gibson, you will want to give Megan Erickson a try!
