The Delight

This was an interesting concept that had me wondering how could a porn star have a normal relationship? I felt compassion for the lead character, Jason, as he was becoming disinterested in the life he had created over the last ten years. The heroine, Sydney, wasn’t anything great in my mind. I liked her, but she wasn’t a stand out character.

I debated for a while about buying this book. Overpriced, I just couldn’t make up my mind if it was worth the money for such a small book. I had some ARe bucks left over from a rebate and decided it was worth a try. While I enjoyed the story, I can’t say it was worth the full price. $3.99 for basically 100 pages is double my target of $2.00 per 100 pages.

So onto the story.

Jason “Bone Harder” Bone is a famous porn star, but not everything glitters when you are a star. While most guys would love to do 2-3 scenes a day with multiple women, it is just a job to him. Nothing arouses him, the women aren’t even aroused to be with him. Jason starts to realize this isn’t the life he wants for the future. He wants a woman who wants him for him. A family that he can love and adore. So when he goes out to a club one night, he meets a woman who has no clue who he is or what he does for a living. It’s refreshing and exciting, but he tells a lie right away about what he does for a living.

Sydney is beyond a break up she had a year ago, but being a little curvier than the stick figures men tend to go to, she doesn’t think she will ever find anyone. Out at a nightclub with her sister, she meets Jason, who is quite rude to her at first, but later apologizes and takes her out for burgers. The two hit it off, highly attracted to each other. Sydney works in a deli where they make up hampers  (picnic type meals) and bakes.

The two start to fall head over heels in love with each other and it feels authentic. Jason has someone who likes him as a person and hey the sex is wonderful too. He falls hard and the harder he falls the more agonizing it becomes that he lied about his career. Sydney starts to pick up that something isn’t right, but she is fine with him being a PA to Rick Fu*k, Jason’s best friend and fellow porn star.

The conflict comes hard and fast, but is resolved extremely easily and quickly. This was disappointing. Agonizing so much over it being revealed, I wanted to see more about how they would work it out.

I was glad we didn’t spend much time actually going through a porn scene. That just doesn’t do a thing for me. I wanted more about the conflict, how do you move on from a porn star life. I don’t know what goes into a porn movie, not a porn fan, so when they say they aren’t aroused, I guess that is true, and I guess I really don’t want to know.

What do you think about porn stars finding love?
Can “normal” people accept someone as their significant other as a porn star?

I have no idea if a long term relationship is possible, but I suppose it is. I read an m/m series about porn starts by Amy Lane, but these guys were all falling for people in the business who knew what they did and they got out when they entered their relationships.

I would expect quite the explosion and mess when she found out, too. 😉 But I guess it was short enough for things to go fast.

It was a shocker when revealed, but the conflict was resolved way to fast and easily. This is something major and he does try to hide it. Overall not bad, but it’s too short to do the subject justice.

Ooh, I want to read this one! I’ve only read one other romance that featured a hero who’s a porn star and I loved it. It’s called Decker’s Wood by Kirsty Dallas, and I highly recommend it, especially if you enjoy reading rom-coms. I reviewed it on my blog, if you’re interested 😉 Back to this book, Porn Star. While I am interested in reading this book, I am not interested in paying $4 for 100 pages (current Kindle book price). So I’ll wait until/if it goes on sale or maybe I’ll try to borrow it via Amazon Lending. Thanks… Read more »

Now you have me interested in Decker’s Wood. It’s an interesting topic and one I am glad I never have to deal with 🙂

The price was a deal breaker for a while. When I have a free credit or ARe bucks, that’s when I don’t feel quite so bad going for it. I would have never bought this outright because of the price. I am all for authors making a profit, but this seemed way over the top.

I think anyone can find love, so yeah a porn star finding love should be a hard thing. Only if that person is comfortable with themselves and their partner in that line of work…I just feel you can’t be with someone in the porn business and not be confident, I mean your mate is having sex with multiple folks all the time…
