"An exotically filthy, devastatingly beautiful story that will captivate and tease you long after the book is finished." -Audrey Carlan, New York Times bestselling author
Previously published as I, Porn Star
People call me many things: CEO, billionaire, bastard. Q.
I love women. I love sex. I love money. I love hot, wild nights with no promise of a future, because a future is one thing I don't have. I'm twenty-eight years old. I won't live to see thirty, and I don't care. Or I didn't, until her.
Nobody plans for a life like this. Some of us just end up here.
They call me Lucky, though luck has never been on my side. Before I met Q, my life was a big, twisted mess. Never enough money, never anyone to trust. No way out. With Q, the shame and fear disappear. Instead I feel pure pleasure, and that's something I've never had before. But if what I've just learned is true, we'd better enjoy every second together while we can...before our time runs out.
The levels of hell inhabited by the leads in Cox's BDSM-themed romance (originally self-published as Porn Star) are extreme, as is their behavior. Quinn Blackwood is the billionaire scion of a powerful politician. He lives solely to ruin his father in revenge for his mother's misery. His plan, ludicrously enough, involves playing sex games with multiple enemies and putting on disguises to film kinky sex videos. His latest lover is Lucky, aka Elyse. Her father prostituted her out until she killed one of his henchmen to protect her baby sister from the same fate. Desperate for money that will assure her and her sister's safety, she agrees to filmed sex, for $100,000 a night, with the mysterious Q. Elyse doesn't know that Quinn and Q are the same man, but he knows just who she is, resulting in plenty of Machiavellian mind games that some may find sexy. Quinn's nonsensical scheme and the levels of depravity displayed by multiple villains put this novel entirely over the top.
Good & Hot
Really enjoyed this! Always happy to find a new author to sink my teeth into. I feel like we get a lot of subpar books in this genre...this is not one them. Well written story, lots of heat and leaves you wanting more.
The characters are credible. Unlike a lot of writers, cox does not talk down to the reader in her writing style or storyline.
Can't wait for more stories from cox.
I bought this book because I was intrigued by the name and I was looking for something new to read by an unknown author --to me, at least.
It was the best decision I could've made!
I won't go into writing style and technicalities. What I will share with you is that her characters are intriguing, with a lot of emotional baggage and both had undergone terrible experiences during their childhood and learnt to deal with it.
Lucky needed a way out. And she saw it when she read an ad that sounded too good to be truth.
Quinn was looking into ending what he had started the day his mother passed away.
And that's just the beginning!
Zara will have you turning page after page, smoldering hot scenes, one after another, and none are a copy of the one before!
After reading this book, I had to go and buy her Indigo Lounge series, and loved every one of them!
I'm really looking forward for more from Zara Cox!
If you're debating whether to buy this book or not, JUST BUY IT!!!
-- A very happy reader ☺️
