Review ~ CALL ME SAFFRON by Talia Quinn with a giveaway


Samantha Lilly is in a long-term relationship… with her vibrator. She can’t handle a serious commitment, but casual affairs don’t do it for her either. So she’s resigned herself to being alone.

Her call-girl roommate Jeanine has other ideas. She persuades Samantha to take her place for one night with Dylan Krause, an incredibly hot prospective client recovering from a messy divorce. She says it’ll be good for Samantha to be with someone without her usual expectations and complications.

It’s more than good. It’s intense, extraordinary, and emotionally devastating. During their long, intimate night together, they bare, not just their bodies, but their souls.

But after that one amazing night, Samantha flees. This feels too real for her. And yet she can’t forget Dylan, even though she tries.

Then one day, he walks into the architecture firm where she works. Seeing him threatens to destroy the careful walls she’s built around her heart—and this time she can’t run away.

Flaunt it. Be your sexiest self. He has no idea who you are in real life. You will never see him again.

I let the coat slip out of my fingers and pool onto the floor in an elegantly careless heap.

Dylan stared at me, openly appreciative.

So pure, this transaction. So simple. So insane.

“Like what you see?” I made my voice sultry, like Mae West or what I imagined Jeanine to be like with a client. A mistake, because I immediately giggled at the absurdity.

Dylan raised his eyebrows. “Is this a joke to you?”

I walked over to him, a trifle unsteady on my stiletto boots, and pressed my hand against those damp curls on his chest. “No joke, Dylan Krause. Hardly a joke.” I could feel his heart thump under my palm, nearly as fast as my own. “So? Do you want me to stay? Or do I refund your money?”

He was startled into a laugh. “Blunt. I like that.”

“Good, because that’s what you get.”

“You’re not what I expected.” His gaze traveled over my body. I felt it like a caress.

I took another step, so close now, and ran my hand through his damp hair, enjoying the way it sprang against my fingers, a live thing. Enjoying the fact that I could do this. “What do you want to do first?”

“Who are you, Saffron?” He was looking at me with a strangely intent gaze.

And here Jeanine had assured me he wouldn’t want to talk.

My Thoughts:

I liked Call Me Saffron but I feel like I missed part of the story. I felt like the beginning of the story was missing because it didn't really give the details needed to understand the situation until later and even then, I would have liked to know more.

For example, it never does explain the whole call me Saffron thing. It is briefly mentioned but that is all. :-(

I enjoyed the story but it was over when it started getting good and I still didn't feel satisfied.

I'd like to know if the story began in one of her other books.

This is a quick, hot, and somewhat confusing (to me) read.

I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. Honestly, I'd love to read the rest of the story! This was good but felt like it was incomplete.

  1. i do want to know where " saffron" name came too and just for the blurb and excerpt i expectedit know learning that it's not fully explained i'm confuse too.

    Samatha doesn't want long term relation nor casual one so she become a escort ( or a prostitute not sure)? not sure what to think of that i do hope there is more too so you can get your answers and rassure us^^

  2. Thank you for hosting!!

    "Saffron" is the name that her roomate uses as her "Call Girl" name, which Samantha uses when she takes on a "job" for her sick roomate. And there is kind of a running joke that the hero calls her "Saffron" after they get to know each other better.

    1. Thank you for the explanation, we appreciate that you took the time to answer us

  3. It sounds like it could be really good but if it left you wanting then I may wait a bit on it.
