Where to get:
Love and sex, sex and love… Can you have one without the other? As a world famous porn star, Alexa James thinks she has everything all figured out. But what happens when someone who gets paid to have sex has an existential crisis? Suddenly sex isn’t enough, and love seems out of reach. Will Alexa’s career choice permanently crush her spirit? Or will she discover that real love is about more than just the physical?
"Impossible," I murmured. Someone had gone through a major growth spurt. He was still geeky; I mean who wears shirts with robots and phone booths on them? But he was now like geek sheik or something, which translated to sexy panty-wetting status.
I knew what I needed to do. I needed to pack up everything and get the hell out of Dodge as fast as humanly possible. Of course, there was no way I was actually going to do that. You see, men may think with their dicks, but we're led by our hearts.
I also realized that even though I hadn't had sex with Alexa, I was already caught in her web. The minute I'd discovered that she'd made a run for it, I'd tracked her down like some lovesick desperate teenager. Fuck me, maybe I actually am turning into a woman.
"You're making me sound shallow." I harrumphed. "You need to be sexually compatiable to be with someone long term. Maybe if more people just accepted that there'd be less unhappy people in this world."
D.T. Dyllin does it again!!
When it comes to anything written by Dyllin, I am honestly a sucker. She is an instant read author for me. We all have them, the authors that you would buy without thinking twice because you know it will be EPIC! Well Alexxxa blew even those expectations away. This is the steamy type of romance that makes you want to grab your partner and go, but you are far too involved in the book to do so. Meaning the romance is hot as hell and the plot itself drags you in. For those of you that have not had a D,T, Dyllin book in their hands yet, let me just say Alexxxa will raise your temperature a few degrees.
There is no wasted time setting things up in the start of this book. You are thrown right into a world where sex rules, and the more talented you are, the better the pay is. This being said, even being thrown into the thck of things was like slipping into a new world. I can't say I was there, but I can tell you that there were times that I was wishing that I was. I have to admit that the fast pace and devilishly good ride that it took me on, was a complete rush. There was not a dry moment and I found it hard to put down even for a single moment. I would compare reading this book, to trying to just eat one little sliver of chocolate, when you know you could have the entire thing.
Alexa is the best of the best and she loves what she does. This girl will rock your world, even if it is from a screen, and I loved her. She was determined, even if it was mostly when it came to getting what she wanted when she wanted. There was no such thing as no when she decided she wanted a guy in her bed. However, she wasn't ever really told no. I mean the girl is beautiful and loves sex, there is not a guy in his right mind that would say no. When this happens and she has no idea what to do, she becomes more determined than ever. To her sex is a game that she always wins but she finds her match in David. She will not be judged and she will get what she wants, even if she has to play a little 'dirty' to get it.
David is one of Alexa's biggest fans. Before you think he is all creepy, it isn't like that. He has had a thing for her long before she decided to make her way to the top of the porn industry. The problem for him is that he can't figure out why a girl like her would do a job like that. Actually, it irritated me that he could not accept that she actually loved doing what she was doing. It wasn't about not feeling good enough, it was about loving sex and everything that it brought with it. However, that isn't to say that I didn't love David for some things. Like Alexa didn't give up he didn't give up, but just in different ways. He was also willing to change certain things for her if he had to. He was ultimately Alexa's match, and I liked him for that.
Alexxxa was an over the top amazing read. I liked that Dyllin dared to go to the place many others tip toe around. I believe that this book will blow all of those that give it a chance away. There is an authors note at the start of the book that explains why she wrote this book, and in all honesty I believe every word of it. Women are considered sluts if the sleep around (even if it is their job) and yet men do as they wish. D.T. Dyllin has created a book in where sex is the job and ultimately it is Alexa's body and she will do what she loves with that. SO what if it happens to be sex... I mean who hasn't seen themselves as part of something bigger, and Alexa's bigger is just different but no better or worse. Pick this up if you want steamy scenes, exploding chemistry and a book that steps outside of the norm!
