The Truth About Porn Star Boyfriends by Sunniva Dee #ReleaseBlitz #Review

 

The Truth about Porn Star Boyfriends Sunniva Dee Publication date: August 15th 2017 Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

I guess I just forgot. To ask him what he did for a living, I mean. And by the time I did, I was in—balls deep, as he’d call it. He was the perfect boyfriend. Attentive, gorgeous, guessing my every wish and fulfilling them. The sex was earth-shattering. He even dealt with my crazy mom the way no one else could. He popped the question, God, such a perfect guy. There was just one issue: He f*cked other girls on camera for a living. How the hell do you deal with that?

EXCERPT:

I slept over at his house. I did. I just couldn’t go home after everything he told me. I didn’t accept the invite to come with him on the boat today though. I didn’t ask him if he was going without me either. If he is, wouldn’t he be inviting some “friends,” some Alicias or Silks? I don’t want to know. It’s not difficult to get my shifts back at Mintrer’s. With Il Signore’s nonna at the hospital, the family spends as much time at her bedside as they can. Mom calls. She sounds okay. I need to verify in person even though Paul is next door, hopefully keeping her busy with his garden statues and homemade fountains. He likes my quirky mother because he’s quirky himself. That’s my guess anyway. I don’t think I can handle any new rocks hurled at Status Quo at the moment, especially not from Mom. The boat is ready. I only returned to my house two hours again, and this is what Ciro texts me? I roll my eyes. Frieda lowers the bagel she held up for me—everything or just sesame seeds?—and says, “That isn’t the porn star, is it?” “Yeah, it’s Drake Constantine.” I pull out the syllables mocking him even though each sound opens my chest again. “Well, at least he’s got a nice artist name. He’s no Jake daBoner or Cassius Erectus.” I snort. “Drake Constantine boned me in the ass last night,” she quotes as if from Shakespeare. She gazes beyond the bagel she now holds up like a skull. I chuckle a little bit, and Frieda smiles. Smiles so wide it makes me feel guilty over everything I’ve put her through. I know she suffers with me. She didn’t sleep last night knowing I was with Ciro. “What’s he saying?” “He tells me he’s got the boat ready.” “For that Catalina trip?” “Mhmm.” “You’re not doing that too, are you?” She drops the halves of the bagel into the toaster. “Not the everything,” I say. “Can I have the sesame seed one instead?” She presses her mouth together in a stern line but listens and fishes the everything one out and drops the sesame bagel in instead. “Happy now?” “Very.” “You’re not going, right?” “No.” I want to slap my heart and my body for agreeing that we should say yes. “I already told you. I’m visiting Mom this morning, and then I’m working. If I get to do some overtime this weekend, I’m happy. I need the money, and I really don’t want to mope around the house.” I’ll wait for you if you’re asleep. I said I wasn’t going. Can’t. We I hit “send” before I can finish the “We’re over, remember?” part. It was easier to yell it to him when I was furious. Today, I don’t know how I feel. Why can’t you? He doesn’t ask about the We part? He knows. “He’s so stubborn,” I murmur and type again. Because, when are you seeing someone else for a f*** fest? He deserves that I’m being crude. Hell, he’s being crude every hour of every work day. He takes a moment to reply. Long enough for Frieda to scoot a plate and the tub of cream cheese in front of me. “Stop texting with him. You’re only dragging it out. You know that, right? I thought you’d blocked him.” “He has a work phone too. On-freaking-call cell. Ha!”

Review

When I first read the blurb for this book, I knew I was going to like it. I was so excited to be chosen for an advanced copy and I dove right in. I was hooked from the start and didn’t want to put it down. Savannah likes to maintain her “Status Quo”. This means she works 2 jobs plus walks dogs. She doesn’t date.  Then Ciro walks into the diner and he looks like a god. Savannah compares herself to all the other waitresses and she is more girl next door than any of them. There are a lot comments about her big eyes which crack me up. Of course Ciro likes her eyes and tells her that all the time. She tells him all about her life and he only shares bits and pieces of his. They’ve been together for a few months and he still won’t tell her what he does for a living. I saw the way she finds out coming and I still enjoyed it a lot. She is so conflicted trying to figure out how she feels after the bombshell of discovering her boyfriend is a porn star. I thought she handled it better than I would have for sure! I love how quirky Savannah is and her love of animals. I like Ciro other than him hiding a huge part of his life. This is a definite must read! Rating: 4.5 stars

Author Bio: Between studies, teaching, and advising, Sunniva has spent her entire adult life in a college environment. Most of her novels are new adult romance geared toward smart, passionate readers with a love for eclectic language and engaging their brain as well as their heart while reading. Born in the Land of the Midnight Sun, the author spent her early twenties making the world her playground. Southern Europe: Spain, Italy, Greece–Argentina: Buenos Aires, in particular. The United States finally kept her interest, and after half a decade in Los Angeles, she now lounges in the beautiful city of Savannah. Sometimes, Sunniva writes with a paranormal twist (Shattering Halos, Stargazer, and Cat Love). At other times, it’s contemporary (Pandora Wild Child, Leon’s Way, Adrenaline Crush, Walking Heartbreak, and Dodging Trains, coming in late March 2016). This author is the happiest when her characters let their emotions run off with them, shaping her stories in ways she never foresaw. She loves bad-boys and good-boys run amok, and like in real life, her goal is to keep the reader on her toes until the end of each story.
