Curvy Girls & Porn Stars

After reading Taint by S.L. Jennings, I was craving something just as juicy so of course I browsed through the “customers who read this also bought,” and I came across Bound To You Vol. 1 and 2.

 

The Bound To You series, by Vanessa Booke, was a pretty decent read. I got through them both in a matter of hours and although I can’t say I’m anxiously waiting for the 3rd book in the series, I will see this series through to the end.

Bound To You is about  Rebecca, a lively, curvy (thank goodness) redhead from Los Angeles, who caught her TV actor finance` banging his co-star in their bed, why she didn’t go bat-shit cray cray on his ass I don’t know (that would’ve SO made me love this even more). She makes the decision to move to NY to take on an entry-level job that could lead to the job of her dreams as well as allow her to escape the reminders of her jackass boyfriend. Rebecca is terrified to fly but determined to get the hell out of LA. On the flight to NY they experience some turbulence and she is freaks out. In the middle of her breakdown she literally falls into the lap of beautiful stranger and they share a kiss, too bad she will never see him again.

Nicholas Stonehaven is the heir to the Stonehaven publishing empire. He is sex on legs and has the track record to prove it. He’s banged all of his personal assistants and when they find out he doesn’t want a “relationship” they quit. His father not only requires him to hire a new assistant that he will pick, since Nick obviously sucks at it, he also arranges for Nick to marry one of his associates daughter. Who does that?!!??

This series is far from over and without giving away spoilers, it looks like it’s going to be a pretty good series. I love the fact that Rebecca isn’t the perfect 10. She has a real woman’s body and although she is comfy in her skin she isn’t oblivious to what the world sees as sexy or pretty. The sexual tension between her and Nick is hot but what I really loved about these books is the arranged marriage situation. The fact that Nick has to marry this woman to secure his and his sisters future with the company intrigues me. I didn’t think that arranged marriages even existed in the 21st century and the fact that this woman is willing to marry this man knowing he doesn’t want anything to do with her is fascinating to me. The characters are well written and each one seems to have a story there, I can totally see each supporting character with his/her own stand alone. The way they are written makes you want more of them as well as Nick and Rebecca. I think I can see where the story is going but I hope the author has some more tricks up her sleeve. Even if she doesn’t; I plan on finishing this series because it definitely was a good and easy read. So I will give this one a 3.5 out of 5 stars as I wait for the next installment, Hopefully as a whole I can give it 4 or 5 stars!

But Monday bought me to the silliest book I’ve read in a while and I loved every minute of it!

Decker’s Wood, by Kristy Dallas, was just a ball of awesomeness. With words like manjigglies, vajazzle and meat whistle. I spent more time wiping my eyes from laughing then actually reading, but I got through the entire book and wanted to read it again.

The book is about Decker, a porn star of 12 years whose peen decided it didn’t want to work anymore. Well at least not for meaningless unemotional sex. Who would’ve thought penises have feelings too dammit! Anyway, Decks junk does have a preference and it wants Andi, too bad she is off-limits to Decker.

Andi is Decker’s best friends little cousin from Texas. She grew up with Bradley and his family and remembers Decker from the summers that he spent with Bradley’s family as well. Andi bought a bookstore in SoHo New York and can’t wait to start her new adventure in the big city.

I loved every silly little thing about this book! The story is so damn far-fetched it’s ridiculous but it’s so well written and hilarious that if it possibly could happen I would want to be there to witness it. Each character brought something to the table in creating such a great story and if I ever get my vajay-jay vajazzled I would want my gay bestie by my side as well! Andi’s Texas roots make her a lovable character and her nervous ramblings makes for good comic relief. Decker’s self conversations with and about is junk is just as funny as it is serious. Performance anxiety is a mother! Well I tell what this book doesn’t need Viagra to go the distance it was great all on its own. 5 out of 5 stars because dammit it was hilarious!
