Hi Jessie! We’re excited to have you back at 3 Chicks After Dark! Thanks for the great Slice of Life we hosted on the 21st of March. Ty and Chase have always been a favorite couple, but I’d have to say Snake and Greg are a strong second for me. That said, there were a few things I wondered about Snake and Greg as I read their story. Why not make it part of our interview for our tour stop!?
Thanks for taking time to be with 3 Chicks After Dark!
First, could you elaborate a bit more on Greg’s body dysmorphia? He’s obviously concerned about his lack of abs and bigger thighs. How would you describe Greg? Would he be a plus sized model or is he skewed in his own mind how he looks. Is he just not well-defined or muscular, but slimmer. I find I need a better picture of Greg so I can get a better handle on his level of body dysmorphia!
In my mind, I see Greg as someone who has spent his whole life fluctuating. He was an overweight child, picked on, and hiding out in his tech world where he felt safer. He’s someone who would subscribe to the latest diet fad, sometimes with drastic and unhealthy results, and then give up when his changed appearance still didn’t gain him the peer acceptance he thought he needed. The only time he was truly in optimal physical condition was in the DEA academy and he has since settled into what he considers his norm. When he looks in the mirror he sees a plus size man, though he’d never consider himself a model because he believes his features are plain at best. When Snake looks at him, he sees a soft, curvy body that fits perfectly against him and the face of the man he loves.
As I write that, I am even more intrigued with perceptions. How Greg sees himself vs how Snake sees him and how Snake’s feelings impact his perception of Greg? I don’t know the answer. Me and my mirror have a tenuous relationship, so you can be sure Greg will not be the last character I write with body issues.
Second, would Greg and Snake ever dabble is a bit of BDSM? Nothing like Ty and Chase, but maybe some bondage or spanking? Greg seemed turned on by being protected and cared for, but would it extend into something a bit more?
No, not in any real serious ways. I like variation in my reading and my writing, and I’m loving exploring all the ways love can manifest itself and how varying the expression of those feelings can be.
There is Red and Bull, for example, their intimacy is very sweet. Always tender, always filled with flowery words, and even though Red craves the safety of Bull’s larger frame, it’s the security of knowing it would never be used against him that allows him to trust.
Then you have Ty and Chase who live BDSM—from an established 24/7 D/s dynamic, to trying every kind of kink on the spectrum. They are fully cognizant of each other at all times and can comfortably communicate what works and what doesn’t. Mushy words aren’t a big part of their repertoire, but their bond and love is equally as strong as Red and Bull (some would say stronger).
Now we have Snake and Greg—they are all for the dirty talking and sex toys, and they’d be open to experiment with some bondage, maybe, in the heat of the moment, but can also be sweet with each other. I like to think of them as my spicy couple with a dash of this and a sprinkle of that to suit their craving of the moment.
My other couples fall somewhere in between sweet, spicy, and kinky, and I look forward to discovering yet another expression to explore.
Third, just how hard was it to build Greg and Snake’s connection so quickly and have it all be through long distance, phone connection? Were you concerned that it wouldn’t be believable, or whether their attraction would carry through once they met for the first time?
Yes and no. I had already posed the question of what they were in Tricking Chase and so many people responded. Was Snake gay? Bi? Were they together? Did Greg turn him down? Before I even said who the next book would be about, I was getting emails and comments in reviews about Snake and his Phone Sex Operator. So, no, I wasn’t too worried about making that connection believable.
For five years, these two men have communicated, have worked together, and have built a solid relationship despite the miles between them. I firmly believe that’s possible. We make connections every day on social media that never translate into real life encounters, yet we still consider those people our friends, don’t we? We cheer on their successes, mourn their losses, find kindred spirits and confidants.
Snake and Greg had found their kindred spirit, they were cheering each other on, keeping each other alive, and they were solid in their role as partners, and cognizant of their own feelings if not each other’s. Pushing them from the comfort of a long distance relationship to a real life encounter was the real hoop I had to jump through. There had to be bumps in the road. A real long distance relationship leaves a lot of room for autonomy and places to hide the things we think would make us less attractive.
The trick was allowing them to see all the things they weren’t privy to over the phone without diminishing their feelings for one another. Not just appearances, but those quirks and idiosyncrasies that could be cute or annoying depending on how you feel about the person doing them. I hope I did it justice.
Before we say goodbye, is there anything you’d like to share about Greg or Snake that us super fans would find amusing? A little morsel to gobble up?!
Since the book ends as Snake and Greg’s new adventure begins, I’ll be writing shorts that I’ll be putting up on my blog during the tour. After spending the majority of their relationship apart, sending them on a cross country journey together is bound to have some interesting (amusing, sexy) moments, and I can’t wait to write them. I also suggested something in the book that I never followed through on.
Carly at Carly’s Book Reviews asked me to write it and 2000 NSFW words later, it’s chock full of all the spice I’ve come to love from this couple. You can find that here http://carlysbookreviews.blogspot.com/2016/03/talk-dirty-to-me-by-jessie-g.html
Kudos for all the phone and long distance conversations and sexual moments. I think it would be hard enough to write a normal conversation let alone one based over a phone connection! Once again, you’ve delivered another fantastic novel in this world of men, who’ve become an addiction! Thanks for taking the time to join us and having us on your tour.
Thank you for hosting me and my boys. I know how much you love Ty and Chase, and I’m so glad Snake and Greg were able to find a place in your heart as well. – Jessie
As a secret agent for the DEA, Snake’s gone deep into Devils Pride MC with the hope of bringing down the head of Miami’s lucrative drug trade and finds himself saddled with the club’s volatile and secretive SA instead. Unfortunately, after years as partners doing shit neither of them wanted to do for reasons neither of them felt comfortable sharing, Snake considers Trick his best friend. Now he’ll do anything to repair the damage his own necessary lies did to their friendship because, while Trick may have walked away from the MC, Snake needs someone he trusts to have his back.
Meanwhile, Snake’s contact at the DEA has him tied up in knots. The sexy voice and inappropriate comments have him walking around with a permanent set of blue balls. Life undercover is lonely and he lives for every phone call, but his own personal Deep Throat is skittish about committing to a date once Snake returns to headquarters. As far as Snake’s concerned, they only have one shot to build something together and he’s not willing to waste it.
Greg knows he’s not Snake’s type, or anyone’s for that matter. Former love interests called him plain, chubby, and boring. More comfortable in his tech cave than with people, he’s a grade A nerd who isn’t exactly GQ material. Normally he would never be brave enough to flirt with anyone—much less the very hot and very dangerous ginger who’d been starring in his nightly fantasies—but Snake needed something to keep him from getting lost undercover. What started out as a helping hand quickly became an integral part of their relationship—if one could call a five year phone conversation a relationship—and Greg is terrified that once Snake’s sees the wizard behind the curtain, he’ll lose the only man he’s ever loved.
Now the DEA has called Snake home to plan the next stage of the mission, leaving Greg no more places to hide. When fantasy and reality collide, will it be everything Snake hopes for or everything Greg fears? The trick will be staying alive long enough to figure out the answer.
R/X Rated Excerpt:
“That sexy voice and those incredible brains are a potent combination.” There was a sigh and a muffled groan, reminding Greg why they were talking at close to three in the morning. “Lucky for you, my ego’s big enough to handle the challenge.”
“Your ego or your dick?” Just saying it made his mouth water and he’d give anything to see it, touch it, taste it…
“Damn, Sunshine, you gonna groan like that when I’m shoving my big ego down your throat?” The rough dirty talk was more like the Gene he knew and loved.
Yeah, as hopeless as it was, there was no other word for the feelings that ran deep and true inside him. And it was hopeless. While not conventionally handsome, Gene was everything he could ever want in a man—tall, strong, rugged, smart, and deadly—and damn him for being a ginger to boot. The type of man who had no trouble finding a willing body to fuck. The type of man who would never look twice at an out of shape, curly-haired, glasses-wearing geek. But that was his secret and as long as Gene didn’t know exactly what he looked like, he was able to hold on to the fantasy for a little while longer.
“You know I will.” He was groaning again just thinking about getting his lips anywhere near Gene’s body. “I can feel you fisting my hair, holding me still while you make me take every inch.”
“Fuck yeah, I’d grab two fistfuls and fuck that dirty mouth the way it deserves,” Gene promised. “You want that, don’t you, Sunshine? To be manhandled until your throat is raw and your lips are swollen.”
Greg fisted his own aching cock, dragging his palm from balls to tip. What he wouldn’t give for that just once. “More than anything.”
“My dirty little Valentine.” Gene’s voice was ragged and full of satisfaction. “Get your toy, dirty boy, I’m dying to pound that tight ass until you’re screaming my name.”
There was no embarrassment as he reached for the long, thick vibrating dildo he’d already prepared in anticipation of this phone call. He wanted Gene too much to allow embarrassment to stop him from experiencing whatever he could with the man. “Tell me…tell me how you want me. On my back? On my knees?”
“On your back so I can see your face,” Gene purred and Greg felt his heart skip another beat. His dirtiest fantasies had nothing on phone sex with Gene. The real thing would probably kill him.
Meet the author:
Like many readers, the dream of being a writer has been with me a long time. After three decades of trying, I’d begun to doubt. Thanks to social media, I followed my favorite authors hoping to glean some words of wisdom as I pounded out half-formed ideas with alarming regularity. Two repetitive themes emerged: to be a great writer you must read a lot and your butt must be in the chair every day like it’s a job. The more you write, the easier it will be to write and the better you will be at writing. I took that advice to heart and write every day. With three series in the works and a full schedule of releases planned for the next two years, it’s been amazing to have made this dream my reality.
I am a firm believer in marriage equality, love at first sight, power dynamics, and happily ever after. I’m a lover of strong secondary characters, and series filled with families—biological or chosen. All are themes you’ll find throughout my books.

Another Jessie G spectacular! In all seriousness, Jessie G seems to be an author I can rely on for consistently writing novels that deliver a strong story with depth of character, emotion and plot.
In Talk Dirty to Me, we have a chance to get to know Greg and Snake. Snake is the undercover agent (who’s not so undercover anymore) that was embedded with the Devils Pride MC. His contact and liaison with the agency was Greg. Snake’s lifeline and grasp at sanity at times was through Greg. Greg helped Snake stay focused and not lose who he was after five years with the MC.
When Snake finishes the job and Durango is gone, Snake should be able to come home. The first person he wants to see is Greg. His sunshine and light in the darkness. His voice of sanity, love and normalcy. Greg is excited yet fearful. After so many years, Snake and Greg have grown from handler and undercover agent to ‘dating’ over the phone. We’re talking full on relationship and phone sex. But, will Snake find Greg unattractive once they meet in person? Greg is worried he won’t be enough for Snake.
He is wrong. So very wrong. Snake couldn’t be more enamored with Greg and he can’t wait to actually touch and spend time with Greg. Unfortunately, all the problems in the MC and with Durango won’t go away. There’s always someone to pick-up the pieces and continue the illegal operations. Snake will have to build his own team to do this job and he goes with those he trusts the most.
Fans of the Sizzling Miami series will adore the cameos with Alaric and Davin. I personally loved the extra mileage with Ty and Chase. Especially Ty! He just has a snarkiness about him that pulls me in like a moth to a flame. Greg gets to meet all these guys and learn to lean on them for support when he finds himself at the end of a phone yet again with Snake gone and a mole in the agency.
Snake and Greg are the perfect complement to each other as a couple. One is self-assured and confident in their skin, the other not so much. One is a computer whiz and hacker, the other not so much. It’s very much tough guy meets nerd and falls in love. Another interesting aspect to their relationship is that they never met in person for so long. This gave them the chance to get to know each other deeply without any physical attributes getting in the way. Since Greg is self-conscious about his body, this was a blessing for him. I think it was just awesome that they were able to know each other so deeply and fall in love over time. It made the moment they finally got together to sizzle and pop from the scorching heat. They’re fun, zealous and adventurous in the bedroom. Snake is completely in love with Greg and he just radiates warmth and protection when around him.
Another must-read installment in the Devils Pride MC Series. If you haven’t read any of Jessie G’s books, now is the time to take the leap and indulge!
