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.

"Fascinating, sexy and utterly surprising, P*rn Star is an unconventional, page-turning, hot romance with a sweet heart hero. Yes, he is a sweetie pie!" - Lauren Blakely, NYT Bestselling Author

With a title like Porn Star you’d think this book would be hot, hot, hot – and you’d be right. Well, actually it’s an inferno. It’s a total panty melting, jaw dropping scorcher filled with sex—and a lot of it. In between all the sex though, there’s an eye-opening look at the ins and outs of the adult film industry: fair trade, feminist porn, consent, business vs. pleasure, etc.

Devi is a young, somewhat naïve woman on the cusp of becoming a top-tier porn actress. She’s not sure what she wants to do with the rest of her life, but she knows she wants the former co-star she’s been fantasizing about for the past three years. Devi is a sympathetic character, and through her eyes we get to experience some of the harsh realities of the business, as well as the highs and lows of falling in love with a porn star. It’s a dual point of view story, which is helpful in understanding Logan’s struggle with wanting both his career and Devi. Even so, Logan comes across as dense and selfish sometimes.

Without question, the chemistry between Logan and Devi is strong. It’s easy to understand how the line might get blurred between filming a porno reality series and the reality of falling in love, but the plot is rather thin and drawn out. Some of the middle section could be discarded without impacting the storyline. As it is, I spent too much time getting hung up on technical details – like why don’t they have a camera man filming the series instead of just Logan filming themselves? How can they be getting decent footage with a hand held camera sitting on a table while they are moving around?

Devi’s hippie parents are wonderful and the ending (sans the questionable epilogue) is very satisfying.

If you’re looking for a unique story with enough steam to fill your spank bank for a year, Porn Star may fit your bill.

About Laurelin Paige

Laurelin Paige

USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.
