down. He isn’t really sure what he wants but he figures a small town in New
York may be able to give it to him. Young Austin steps in and reminds him of who
he used to be. He rejuvenates him. Nick is worried about the age difference and
Austin isn’t sure if he is enough for a porn star. Will all their differences
get in the way?
I admit it, sex industry plots are a kink of mine. There is just something so
incredibly sexy about a jaded porn star rediscovering the joys of sex. For this plot to work, the character connection has to really be strong. It has to almost over shadow the plot to make it believable. While the characters here are good. Austin a young, dynamic man longing to be more than just a small town boy. His youthful dominance is especially compelling. However with that said, I didn’t like him. He treated is friend Jared horribly, to the point of being a bully. Nick is the true and blue, jaded, porn star. He isn’t so much a lost soul as a burnt out one looking for peace. Again the characters are strong characters that I wasn’t necessarily charmed by but interested in.
Unfortunately their about the only thing working for the story. The sex had an over abundance of exclamation points and comparisons instead of good, detailed descriptions. The start of the book was the characters having intercourse which I didn’t necessarily like but I thought the author was maybe working backwards in the story. I thought we’d go from this intimate occasion to finding out how they meet, which eventually happened but after more than fifteen pages of it just being “he plugged my bunghole like a sledge hammer!”, you just want it to stop. I kept with it however and it did honestly get better. There was lots of repetitive sex but the plot slowly started to take off. The character's connection never really pulled together. The book ends abruptly on a climax with a to be continued, while I understand build up, this was just too sudden. There were some really good points but not enough for me to recommend this book.
