Blurb : The Queen of Reality TV meets the Kingpin of Porn
She’s trying to clean up her act. He’s the king of filth. It will never work. But don’t tell them that.
Dynassy Barnes isn’t known for her big heart.
She is, however, known for her heart-shaped ass and the selfies she shares with her army of social media followers. So when she meets a handsome former SEAL, she thinks she may have scored a love connection and a way to redeem her reputation with fans.
Bridger Thompson is a man of many secrets.
When an explosion in Iraq damaged his ability to satisfy his then-fiance, he never dreamed the machine he built to carry out his husbandly duties would turn into a business featuring women pleasuring themselves with it on camera. A business that could never be associated with The Barnes’ Family, the darlings of reality TV. But Dynassy stirs a desire Bridger hasn’t felt in years, and he’s dead set on laying claim to the famous beauty—even though he fears he won’t be able to love her the way she deserves.
For that, he’d need to become a MACHINE.
Review : “Machine” was not my first book by Normandie Alleman, as a while ago I already read her “Webmaster” series. Therefore I knew I would most probably like her writing style.
The only question was if I would like the new characters and their setting. Dynassy and Bridger were very complicated characters (at least it felt like it to me).
With Dynassy, I was never sure what she really thought. Her words and actions confused me.
And Bridger, well was he really forging a relationship with Dynassy because of what she meant to him or because of what she DID to him.
I honestly had a hard time figuring that out.
Still they were so interesting that I loved reading how they navigated the deep waters with all those sharks surrounding them.
For me it was more about the interesting background that was created than the actual characters. Somehow it felt as if the reader was granted a view into the real world of Reality TV.
I missed the first book in that series but I had no problems following the plot so it is easy to read as a standalone.
