“Tell me what you want. Talk dirty to me.”
Biologist Nora MacGregor is frantic when she loses her dissertation notes on female sexuality—and some very personal fantasies. Then a sinful stranger calls with a wicked proposition: if she talks dirty to him, he’ll return her notes, page by page. “James” allows Nora to explore her deepest desires and challenges her clinical ideas about sex. But James can’t give her the loving touches she finds in her budding relationship with Dr. Jarod Reed.
Jarod seized an opportune moment to fulfill his desire for Nora by becoming the mysterious James. While the anonymous, erotic phone sessions are unforgettable, Jarod longs to tell Nora he wants more than just talk. But how can he confess his deception without it costing him the chance to make their fantasies a reality?
Can you imagine losing notes that reveal your deepest, darkest desires? That’s what happened to Nora MacGregor. She is working on her dissertation and she loses not only her research but personal notes that reveal some of her own desires. She is frantic to find them. She is shocked one night when she receives a phone call from an anonymous male who claims to have her notes. He will give them back to her one page at time for every question she answers.
The only bright spot at the university where Jarod is teaching is the girl he watches twice a week doing laundry. He doesn’t know who she is and finally gathers the courage to meet her. After a disastrous meeting, he finds her notes and research lying on the ground and decides to use them to his advantage.
Through “James” both Nora and Jarod are able to live out their fantasies they are too scared to acknowledge they have. By day they are meeting for coffee and getting to know each other. At night they are having hot, steamy phone sex.
I love the connection between the two. Jarod is truly interested in Nora and wants to learn more about her. They make each other laugh and enjoy being together. James allows them to have the sexual chemistry and play their fantasies out. They can say and do what they want because it’s anonymous and they won’t be judged for their actions.
Once she knows the truth, I love how Jarod gets Nora to tell him the rest of her secret fantasy. He is determined to be the one she is dreaming about, not James. The ending is great and it was definitely worth the wait for these two to actually hook up.
