Adult Films. XXX Movies. Porn.
These are the kind of movies I’ve never planned to watch. It was a taboo topic where I grew up. As a kid, I had only heard of it in passing. In middle school, my parents would talk about my creepy uncle Frank and how he should look for a job instead of watching “those movies” all day. In High School boys thought it was funny to ask my friends and me to star in the amateur adult films they were making. In college, most of my guy friends watched them, but I never had. When I moved to California that changed.
After surprising my fiancé at home and catching him screwing another woman, I hopped in my car and started driving. I was running away from my old life, and I needed a change. I remembered my friend Tawny inviting me to visit her in Los Angeles, so that’s where I went.
I didn’t find Tawny when I got there, but I did find her gorgeous roommate, Jared. Our friendship started out rough, but he gave me a place to stay and helped me get back on my feet. He became my best friend. My best friend who millions of women happened to lust over.
Jared plays by a different set of rules, where anything goes. His lifestyle is unlike anything I’ve ever witnessed before, and it scares me. When you live your life on the edge, eventually you’ll fall over. I didn’t want to see that happen to him.
At night he’s just Jared, my Jared, and I’ll deny it to anyone who asks, but I’m completely in love with him. During the day he’s Brandon Boner, and the world is in love with him.
Oh yeah, did I mention he’s a porn star?
I love an atypical romance, porn stars, strippers, priests, etc. This book is a fun, lighthearted read with plenty of hot steamy sex. I loved the characters. Jared may have sex for a living, but he cares about those around them. This book does deal with the sex industry, and it does touch on the dangers involved and the risks of HIV in particular, which I appreciated, it wasn’t all light and fluffy. I also liked the fact that there is no cheating. I abhor cheating even if its a work situation.
I read this book in one sitting, and I have since re-read it. It still was as enjoyable as the first reading.
There were two ménage scenes (one f/m/f and the other m/f/m) that were related to the hero’s profession (Porn Star), but they were not explicit.
