ALL ABOUT THE D
I'm known for being formal. Meticulous. Professional.
So you’d never suspect I spend my nights photographing my impressive junk for a NSFW blog. Don’t roll your eyes. I’m not bragging. I have millions of followers who’ll tell you they live for my posts.
I’m like a superhero, saving humanity one dick pic at a time.
Except leading a double life means I need someone to help me protect my anonymity, so that no one, especially my family, ever discovers my online celebrity.
When I call one of the most respected law firms in town, I expect quality legal advice and confidentiality. Not a sinfully sexy attorney whose dangerous curves and soul-piercing gray eyes make me want to personally demonstrate my particular skill set.
I shouldn’t be tempted.
Especially when she knows all of my best-kept secrets. But everyone has a breaking point. And I’ve met mine.
Josh was kind of perfect, dick blog aside. Although, that really didn't bother me. What I loved about Josh is that he is a genuinely nice guy. You like him from the beginning, and that always makes a book a pleasure to read.
Evie is wonderful. When I don't like a character in a book, for some reason, it seems to be the women. But in this case, I liked her, her reactions, and overall who she is as a person.
The secondary characters enrich the story, and there is a scene at the end with his family that had me laughing. One of those scenes where, as an adult, you find things out about your family that you never knew when you were growing up. And, this dimension of his otherwise stuff y family gave you an idea exactly where he may have gotten who he is...he comes by it naturally.
Their first meeting is about a penis. Well, about a blog about one specific one...Josh's in fact. And, I admit, while I am not a prude about porn, and have no objections to it, I was not sure how I would feel knowing the romantic hero was, essentially, an internet porn star. But, then you meet Josh and find out that he is so much more than his penis, or his blog, and all is ok. You like him, and it is handled so well that you agree with his reasons for starting it, and for continuing with the blog. Although, some of the things he has to pause while doing to take some of those photos result in some seriously funny moments.
Their chemistry was scorching. So much so that you believe it as it leaps from the book. Are they attracted to one another? Absolutely. Do they genuinely like one another? You can tell that they do. And, I loved this. It drew me to the characters and the book in a way that made me want to continue with them on their journey. It made me care about them, as they were so real...and darn it, I am a little in love with Josh...that I wanted them to be happy. And, as he is more than a little in love with Evie, and treats her like it, you like him just a little more.
Yes, this book was a comedy. But in a way that real life can be funny. It doesn't mean it is less real, or even less life, just that sometimes you end up laughing over thesituations in which life throws you. If you are friends with the person you are laughing with, it's a win. If you are in love with them? It's even better.
If they are an internet porn sensation and it involves a penis mold...well, you have this book.
But, this is all I am going to tell you, because you just need to read the book to find out the rest.
This is my first title by Lex Martin and only my second by Leslie McAdam. I can definitely say I enjoyed it, I recommend it, and I am looking forward to the next one!
This book pulled me in right from the very start. It was funny, sexy with a bit of forbidden lust/love to it that I appreciated. This was my first book from these authors but it will not be my last.
I genuinely liked Evie. Personally, I think anyone reading this book could relate to her on some level (or knows someone like her). She had me on her side from the very first page. One of her coworker's has a nickname for her that made me wince in sympathy-I mean who wants to be known as Miss Frumpy? But as time goes on we see just how non-frumpy Evie is. She's funny, quick witted and a great match for Josh; inside and outside of the bedroom.
Josh was so not what I expected. Born into a very "society focused" family, he's a bit of a black sheep. He has that underdog vibe to him that makes you want to root for him to succeed. He's witty and the banter between him and Evie is priceless. He's incredibly sexy (and he knows it) and he had me swooning in the end.
These two have amazing chemistry, and I mean more than just the sex between them. They were a great match for one another's humor and heart. I definitely laughed out loud at some portions of this book and other portions had me wondering if my kindle would melt since they were so hot.
I enjoyed the secondary characters in this book as well. Both Josh and Evie's friends, their coworker's and families. Nobody overtook the story but they each added to it in their own unique way.
This book had more emotional depth than I was expecting but I enjoyed that. I enjoyed their journey from start to finish. I would recommend this book and look forward to going back through other books these authors have written!
She loves printing black and white photos, listening to music on vinyl, and getting lost in a great book. Bitten by wanderlust, she's lived all over the country but currently resides in the City of Angels with her husband and twin daughters.

Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all things. When she's not in the writing cave you'll find her fangirling over Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of outdoors on canvas.
