Blog Tour & Review ~ Exrated by Stevie J Cole

Release Day: May 2, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Description:

Tyler Westbrook, better known as Johnny Depth, is taking the adult film industry by storm. With his playboy looks, it’s no surprise a few coworkers have attempted to take things off set and into the bedroom, but Tyler refuses to blur the lines between work and play…until the new assistant to the director walks in. 

Jemma Morgan was recently fired from a lead role on a kid’s TV show that was supposed to be her big break. Unable to get another acting gig, she's accepted a job in an industry she never expected to be a part of. Although she anticipates being shocked her first few days on set, nothing could prepare her for the moment she's asked to hold the reflector as her ex-boyfriend plows through a woman like a Kansas cornfield. 

In a world of butt-plugs, lube, and fake moans, is there a place for a second chance? Exes and some serious ohs…the term ex-rated just took on a whole new meaning.

***ARC received for an honest review***

“I’d fucking ruin you if you’d let me.”

This was a fun read from Stevie J Cole that embraced two tropes that I love to read about, second chance romance and love/hate relationships, add to this a porn star element and my curiosity was piqued.

“What defines him is the way he loves me, and that is something no one will ever be able to taint or ruin. After all these years, turns out we do have that epic kind of love that can withstand anything.”

Tyler, stage name Johnny Depth (cue eye roll) was a man that had literally stumbled into his current job as the all new up and coming porn star. Women and men alike had pushed him to the upper echelons of the porn star world and he was fast becoming famous and extremely desired. Tyler was not always destined for pornography though, he had a full scholarship to university to study law and being a 4.0 GPA student he should have made it. But playing hard, partying harder had led to his scholarship being stripped and after a stint as a stripper a talent scout had picked him out for the porn industry. He made money, lots of money, he had no issues with his job until he crosses paths once again with his ex, Jemma.

“The thing with love is it’s fucking stubborn and so am I.”

Jemma had never gotten over Tyler, after a long relationship through school and college she thought that Tyler was her one and only, they shared all their firsts together, but alas when he moved away, he dropped all contact and broke her heart. Five years later and our aspiring actress is singing “Let It Go” from the top of her lungs as an “Elsa” in a kid’s TV show. However, her acting life hits the skids when her ex rock star boyfriend allows a sex tape to go viral and the kids tv channel drops her like a hot potato. Now desperate for work she finds herself hitting an all-time low as she gets a job as a PA to the King of Porn.

Tyler and Jemma do actually meet a few days before Jemma starts her new job, she finds it is Tyler grinding behind her at a club which leads to a night of hot and sweaty sex and a lot of regrets, but none more so than when on her first day at work, it is Tyler in front of the camera with another woman.

The relationship between Jemma and her best friend was really funny, the dialogue between these two had me grinning from ear to ear and really lightened up this story. While we are treated to flashbacks of Tyler and Jemma’s past I didn’t really connect to them as characters or as a couple. There were a few instances where I internally cringed and Jemma was a bit flaky at times and that irritated me. Tyler though was totally blinkered, I could have easily slapped him about and told him to wake up and smell the coffee, he was delusional. But it did make for an entertaining read and while I liked it, I just didn’t love it.

So, today’s feature is guy on guy ~Jemma
OMG. You are watching this right. Right now? ~ Heather
Yep, Dick in asshole. Balls a swinging. ~ Jemma
I hate you. That’s so hot ~ Heather
It’s weirdly hot. ~ Jemma
Send me a picture. ~ Heather

This was a quick book to read, it was fun and entertaining, just didn’t give me that character connection that I crave.

“I’ve loved you since I was six, and I’ll love you until I’m ninety-six, even if you aren’t really mine.”
