Review! Porn Star by Laurelin Paige and Sierra Simone

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.

Oh. My. Stars.

So, you read a book titled "Porn Star" and you go into it with some idea what you will be getting. And, on a lot of levels, you get what you are expecting. There is porn, and the sex scenes are plentiful and hot. And Logan is HOT and so is Devi.

But you also get a lot that you are not expecting. And for me, this is where the book needs more than 5 stars.

You like Logan. He is a good guy, he respects women. Not because he has to, but because he does. Porn, in his world, is not sleazy, nor is it exploitation of women.

Devi is also amazing. She is in porn because she wants to be and no one judges her for that. Her parents are supportive, she stands up for herself, she knows her boundaries, and she doesn't let anyone make her feel cheap.

Amazing job by the authors of making porn feel real and of addressing the changes that are happening in the industry as well as some of the stigmas and of addressing, with a change of names, the rape and assault charges levied against one of the biggest names in the industry. Kudos for this, for making this story so much more than a romance novel that just skims the surface.

I am not able to get into too much detail without a lot of spoilers, and the story of Logan and Devi is just too good to experience after being ruined by spoilers. So, read it. And know going in that you are going to get something well worth the time it takes to read the book.
