So I learned as I was reading this it was published first under the name Bang and then changed to Heat. Either title works so I am not going to get hung up on that.

We meet Trent or “Rez” as he is known in the porn business as he is banging another porn star for the money shot. He feels nothing and can hold an erection for as long as needed and cum on his own minds command. It’s just another day in the life of Rez the 12″ cock porn star. Trent plays hard, fucks hard and lives hard. Drugs and alcohol are nothing new to him and he is pretty wealthy. I didn’t get to see much of this lifestyle so I can’t really say if it was growing old and boring yet for him. Then wham, he’s riding his motorcycle home when he realizes he probably shouldn’t be driving and ends up in an accident that breaks a lot of bones, but yeah, not his boner.

Lexi is your basic nurse whose life is really complicated. She is the legal guardian of a sister with lots of issues. Hiring someone to be with her sister when she works cuts into the paychecks. Hoping to make head nurse, she takes each patient seriously until Trent comes along. She knows he is high and gets an opinion of him fast when the cops conveniently “lose” the paperwork proving it. Trent tells her he is famous, but she doesn’t know for what…yet.

Trent is immediately in lust for Lexi, something he hasn’t felt in a long time. He sprouts boners at sponge baths and lurks into her life to get to know her better. At first he is confused by what he feels and then starts to feel dirty for the career he has chosen. Hoping against hope, he tries to get to know her better before she finds out his past. Seducing her in supply closets is just a means to an end even if he throughly enjoys it.

But Lexi does find out who and what he does for a living. It is kind of a wake up call that she is attracted to a porn star, but Trent isn’t letting go and pulls out all the stops to make her love him.

The writing was just so-so on this one. There were a lot of spelling errors and grammar issues that could have used a editor. Then each chapter alternated from Trent and Lexi’s perspective written in first person. At times you felt like you were at a tennis match bobbing your head back and forth. Oh, and the whole condom issue rises it’s ugly head with assumptions. I could see that one coming a mile away.

So while I wanted to get an in depth look at how a porn star falls in love, I mostly got a superficial look into a romance story where Trent won’t take no for an answer and has the money to make it happen. Lexi wasn’t a virgin, but she allows Trent to go lots of places I didn’t think she would allow so easily.

These two just didn’t do it for me. I found the sex sexy, but the out of sex times just blah. I wanted more with more mature characters, which I felt Trent needed some growing up. Since I got it with Kindle Unlimited, I don’t feel slighted. Be warned, the book has a lot of excerpts at the end and the percentage done doesn’t tell the story of how much you really have read of the current book, Heat.

The following two tabs change content below.
Shari is the Delighted Reader. Married to her Prince Charming and mother to two Princesses and one Prince. When she is not slaving away as Cinderella she loves to get lost in the pages of a good book. Never without a reading device and a few good paperback books, because she never knows when she might get 5 minutes to read!

    Thanks Shari for the review. I may take a pass on this one

    • Shari Delighted Read

      I would pass. It is very simplistic and has a lot of grammar/spelling issues. No real indepth for the characters.

  • Yes, there are other good porn star romances that actually have a story. Sorry this wasn’t one of them.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      I haven’t found many good ones. Kindle Unlimited is turning out to be a bust.

  • Look at those muscles

    • Shari Delighted Read

      Love the cover.

  • This seems interesting. I am pretty sure I won’t pick it up though. I like a good relationship romance story, and even though I have read a porn star themed romance before (and I did like), it would have to be a fabulous story for me to be tempted to pick it up.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      I need to find a good porn themed romance where the guy isn’t a huge dick to the girl. He was bad, just obsessive.

  • Porn stars need love too! lol. I got excited for this when I saw the post title, but darn, don’t sound that good.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      I wanted a good story. There was a story, but the writing felt to immature.
