The book was good fun, and the narration was excellent. I hate when books reference a characters accent and yet it's performed in queens english by the narrator. This is a gem though, with that wonderful liverpudlian accent, distinct characters that are easy to tell apart and comedic moments that are delivered with gusto. Would definitely recommend.

When 25-year-old Kat is dragged to a porn convention by her best friend, she's both embarrassed and nervous. The last thing she ever expects is 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.

The narration was good. The concept was fine and actually could have made for an interesting tale about public perception of the sex industry and the struggles of making relationships work when one person isn't involved in said industry. Although I didn't necessarily expect the book to delve too deep I didn't expect it to be as vacuous as it was. I also didn't find the book very funny, which is rather problematic when all of the substance has been sacrificed for cheap laughs that don't even land. Admittedly the humour could be a preference thing so definitely listen to the sample to see if it's to your tastes. I'm sure the writer is probably great and has other good reads but this book came across as poorly written, and not very well researched. The characters are ill advised stereotypes that seemed like they were written by someone who has never come into contact with anyone remotely similar to them before and the book itself is dumbed down to filth and repeats the same thoughts and concepts over and over again. Wouldn't recommend.

I'm thrilled to be the maid of honor in my friend's wedding, but the best man, Andrew McCormick, is a chauvinistic pig with a god complex. And I can't stop kissing him in closets.

The narration was good, a couple of the characters were dodgy but that's forgivable, especially in a 'comedic' book like this. The story itself, not the greatest. It was a bit blah which is a shame as it had such great reviews.

In terms of my preferences I personally wouldn't recommend, although if you're into more fluffy melodramatic reads (think a pg 50 shades in terms of the way it's written, dialogue, character dynamics) you might like this.
