Love and sex, sex and love… Can you have one without the other? 
As a world famous porn star, Alexa James thinks she has everything all figured out. But what happens when someone who gets paid to have sex has an existential crisis? 
Suddenly sex isn’t enough, and love seems out of reach. 
Will Alexa’s career choice permanently crush her spirit? Or will she discover that real love is about more than just the physical?

D.T. Dyllin is a Bestselling Romance Author who writes in both New Adult and Adult genres. She is a member of the RWA (Romance Writers of America) and also her local chapter, the MCRW (Music City Romance Writers).

 D.T. was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. (Black & Gold for life, baby!) She now lives in Nashville, Tennessee with her husband and two spoiled GSDs.

When you are a porn star, have a great body, love having sex and your face is known by most men you wouldn't expect one of them saying no. That's what Alexa has to face when she meets David. Suddenly she wants more than sex and love seems an option.

Alexa is a likeable character despite her profession. She is an interesting woman with some strong thoughts and opinions about life. David seems to be a centered man who is drawn to Alexa and what lies beneath. When they get together there is a lot of tension and sparkles. However, as you can imagine things get better once they give in to their desire.

The story has a few interesting twists and there is a bit of action and drama. The secondary characters have small parts in the story but some of their actions change the course of it.

The writing is really good, as usual with Dara's books. The temperature rises in all the right places and the scenes will not disappoint you.

There was only one thing I didn't like and it's how often she tries to justify her choice of career. She states that she simply likes sex but in the story we found what looks like psychological explanations on how she always looks for love and acceptance from men and people in general, so sex and exhibitionism are the way she finds them. Don't get me wrong I like when the character’s personality has some sort of fundament but she sounds like a cliché. “A parentless girl and a screwed up childhood ends up being a porn star”... I would have expected something different.

In general, I liked the story and couldn’t put it down. I read it in only 2 days because somehow the writing catches you and you need to know what comes next. Another good story by the lovely D.T. Dyllin.

  1. Aw too bad about the cliche character! The first premise was attactive enough (that she simply liked sex), and I think that would have made her more interesting. But I've always wondered about this plot (sex star wanting love), and I'm intrigued about this David character. I enjoyed your review, Ruty! :)


Thanks for your comment!!!
