Blurb : My name is Quinn Blackwood: By day, I’m a billionaire CEO. Rich. Entitled.By night, I’m the exclusive porn star only known as Q.Why? Because I love women. If I believed in an almighty being, I’d thank him for creating them. They’re by far his most perfect creation… especially when I’m fucking one of them.Oh, did I mention I’m an asshole? Fuck yeah. According to my shrink, I’m one twisted motherfucker. And that’s just the way I like it. Until she walks into my life…My name is Elyse Gilbert, nicknamed ‘Lucky’ because according to my dad, I’m the unluckiest person alive, and I’ll die the same way I came into the world: naked, screaming, and dirt poor.Yeah, my life is a twisted, seething mess. But that life changed the day I met HIM.He made me forget the cameras.He made me forget I was doing this for the money.He made me forget my shame.He made me forget everything. I was consumed by him. Only him.But now my past has caught up with me.

 

Review : I almost did not choose Zara Cox’s Book “Porn Star” because of its title. But the Blurb sounded so intriguing so I found myself in an internal war for, which finally the Blurb won. And thank God it did.

 

As a reviewer, I read so many books in that genre of extremer romances that I thought I had literally read something from every angle that is possible. And it gets tougher and more difficult to surprise me by the minute (almost) … but then there are those surprises – those gems in the middle of this gigantic ocean of quite good books. (and the ocean of bad books is even bigger #laughing)

 

If I would place that book in a comparison to others (which honestly is not an easy feature), I would say it is a more raw view on a male lead than “fifty shades” was, because Q is not quite as obviously strange as Christian was, but that is only because he better at hiding it.

 

Or you could say that Q is a better disguised asshole than Jesse Ward was in Jodi Ellen Malpas’ “This Man”, because Q hides behind a wall made out of truths that are nothing but distractions.

 

I have read several books after this already and still I am trying to comprehend what happened in this really complex and yet very simple story.

 

It is not like the plotline is a totally new development by this author … it is more that the packaging is a really great one.

 

And I can honestly not wait to read the next book in that series …
