Review ~ P*rn Star by Laurelin Paige, Sierra Simone

Porn Star
ebook bought by myself.

Release Date: March 8th 2016

Publisher: Self-published

You know me. 

Come on, you know you do. 

Maybe you pretend you don’t. Maybe you clear your browser history religiously. Maybe you pretend to be aghast whenever someone even mentions the word porn in your presence. 

But the truth is that you do know me. 

Everybody knows Logan O’Toole, world famous porn star. 

Except then Devi Dare pops into my world, and pretty soon I’m doing things that aren’t like me—like texting her with flirty banter and creating an entire web porn series just so I can get to star in her bed. Again. And again. 

With Devi, my entire universe shifts, and the more time I spend with her, the more I realize that Logan O’Toole isn’t the guy I thought he was. 

So maybe I'm not the guy you thought I was either.

My Opinion

When I saw this on sale I thought "what the heck?" One of the authors will be at a signing I'm attending in June and since I haven't read anything by her I thought this sounded like a good place to start. 

Now that I've read this, I'm not sure what to make of it. I think I went in expecting too much. I don't know, I expected it to be hotter, but I found myself continually skimming sections. I get that it's current and the authors clearly know their stuff about the behind-the-scenes issues in the industry, but I felt lectured a bit on all of the drama. It took away from the actual spark, and the characters ended up boring me if I'm completely honest. There were too many internal wars and monologues, and not enough actual conversation where their personality developed.

I get that sex is just sex in the industry, and trying to build a relationship around that isn't going to be easy, but for me the chemistry wasn't there an that's really what I was expecting with this book. I wanted a hot, spicy read, with a humorous male lead. Although Logan had his moments, they didn't outshine the sections that I skimmed.

Overall, this was okay. I think I went in expecting too much and the fact I got something entirely different led me to skim and feel disappointed.

I know word verification is a pain, but spam is worse.
