Got Me Talking (Vet Shop Boys #7) by Casey Cox

If after you finished Tyler and Daly's book you were curious about the sweet and shy baker Jeremy, then look no further because Got Me Talking delivers him one heck of an HEA!

From the blurb:

What do you call a herd of rhinos? A crash. That about sums up my life, too.

Having spent the last three years caring for my dying mother, I need a new leash on life. So I say goodbye to the UK and take a job opening at a small-town vet clinic in the US.

Via a layover in New York. Where I get, ahem, laid over.

With a man.

Not something I've ever done in my forty-three years.

Not something I intend on repeating.

Which won't be a problem since I'll never see the guy again… Until I step into the local bakery.

There's no way anything can happen between Jeremy and me. I'm lost, grieving, and, oh yeah, straight. He also happens to be fifteen years younger than me. So what is it about the sexy baker that's suddenly got me talking?

Got Me Talking is book 7 in the Vet Shop Boys series and can be read as a stand-alone. Expect a silver fox British vet having a bi awakening, an adorable baker with a stutter, age gap, plenty of humor, found family, and a heartwarming happily ever after!

Jacqueleen the Reading Queen's Review:

Quite simply put this might be my new favorite of the series. Sorry Chase and Fischer, you've been replaced. Jeremy and Monty were just too perfect for one another. I already liked Jeremy from the glimpses of him in Tyler's book, but Monty quickly squirmed his way into my heart too. A man who loved to give oral sex, but doesn't enjoy receiving? Where can I find this dream man!? It was fun how these two meet for a singular, and silent (Jeremy's request) hook up hundreds of miles away from their respective homes, both thinking they will never see each other again. However, it looks like fate decided to step in here because low and behold the newest vet at Vet Shop Boys just happens to be the lovely Monty.

I loved how shocked they both were when Monty made his first trip into the bakery. Poor Jeremy was so surprised he basically ran and hid in the kitchen til Monty left. It hurt my heart every time Jeremy was treated differently because of his stutter. He's extremely self-conscious about it, to the point it impacts most of his decisions. This is why I said I think fate stepped in. Out of all the people in the world Jeremy ended up sleeping with, it was the one man who without a doubt wouldn't give a single shit about his stuttering. In fact, Monty adores it and often begs to hear it during their numerous steamy times which I also thoroughly enjoyed. It's one of the things that draws him to Jeremy, though it takes a fair bit of time for Jeremy to start believing him when he says it.

"𝙄𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙣𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧 𝙖𝙘𝙘𝙚𝙥𝙩𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙠 𝙡𝙚𝙨𝙨 𝙤𝙛 𝙖 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙧 𝙩𝙤 𝙩𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙢 𝙙𝙞𝙛𝙛𝙚𝙧𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙡𝙮 𝙞𝙣 𝙖𝙣𝙮 𝙬𝙖𝙮 𝙗𝙚𝙘𝙖𝙪𝙨𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝙖 𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙘 𝙤𝙧 𝙩𝙧𝙖𝙞𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙮 𝙝𝙖𝙫𝙚 𝙣𝙤 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙩𝙧𝙤𝙡 𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙧. 𝙏𝙝𝙖𝙩'𝙨 𝙤𝙣𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙢𝙖𝙣𝙮 𝙡𝙚𝙨𝙨𝙤𝙣𝙨 𝙄 𝙡𝙚𝙖𝙧𝙣𝙩 𝙛𝙧𝙤𝙢 𝙢𝙮 𝙢𝙤𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧."

It's a testament to what a lovely woman Monty's recently deceased mother was that he turned out to be such an accepting and kind individual. He was exactly what Jeremy needed, and though he wasn't looking, it turned out Jeremy was exactly what the grieving Monty needed too. I adored the ending and getting an epilogue 25 years into the future was like a wish come true. It makes me so overjoyed seeing MCs still unbearably happy all those years later. A solid HEA if there ever was one.

SNik's Review: 

Seventh in series (Vet Shop Boys), can be read as a standalone but might be more fun if read in order as there is a shared secondary cast. Age gap. Dual POV. 

Jeremy is constantly judged for his stutter, but the talented baker decides a one night hook up while on vacation in New York with no talking is enough to scratch his itch. 

After his short sightseeing adventure in New York which included a mind blowing anonymous hook up, British veterinarian Monty is on his way to a new job to see if he can find his own way to happiness after being a caretaker for many years. 

When Jeremy and Monty meet up again of course their chemistry and attraction can’t be denied, but they spend time together building a friendship and camaraderie that eventually leads to deeper feelings. Both men are struggling with their own inner quandaries, Jeremy overcoming his lack of confidence and possibly starting a new business and Monty determining what he wants out of life and dealing with his health issues. T

hey are definitely supportive and happy and bring out so much strength in each other, it was so romantic as they took time to get to know each other and yet complemented each other in so many different ways. 

Loved them, and the HEA epilogue had me tearing up.
