Most people would describe Katherine Berger as a responsible girl with a big heart, a loyal friend who takes care of those close to her, and the possessor of a wicked sense of humor. There was something about her that most people didn't know. "My name is Kat Berger, and I love porn." When twenty-five-year-old Kat is dragged to a porn convention by her best friend, she's both embarrassed and nervous. The last thing she ever expected was to meet someone who makes her laugh like no other. This is a story about acceptance and friendship, and a love born out of the most unexpected of places. THREE BOUNDLESS STARS
I did not read the blurb before I downloaded this Audiobook because Zapata hasn’t written anything wrong. It’s not that this is bad or that I am a prude. It’s just it revolves around a woman falling in love with a Pornstar. Kat loves porn so much her friend drags her to a porn convention, where she meets Tristan. He is funny, charming, great looking and she is instantly smitten. Then she finds out he is the Pornstar Robby Lingus, she is crushed. For a woman who loves porn, I found this to be hypocritical. You like porn and love to watch it, yet she has a massive problem with what the man she wants does as a profession. There were a lot of double standards. The story has Zapata’s usual funny flair and witty writing style, with a slow burn that culminates at the end of the story. I just couldn’t get into the story or get behind the characters. Overall I am giving Lingus 3 Boundless stars, it was good.
