THE PRINCESS AND THE PORN STAR was funny, sexy and surprisingly sweet.  ~ Under the Covers

There were two reasons why I chose to read this book, the first being that it’s written by Lauren Gallagher. I have been meaning to read a book by her for awhile. I am a huge fan of her work as L.A. Witt so I was already familiar with the quality of writing and the larger than life characters that Gallagher/Witt brings to each of her stories.

The second reason I wanted to read this book was because of the title alone – THE PRINCESS AND THE PORN STAR. Now if you’ve read Gallagher before, then you know that her writing contains  incredible fun, unique characters. I just knew that this book would be a laugh-out-loud riot and I was right!

Rachel Taylor is an accomplished artist whose latest music video has her dancing up again Buck Harder, the hottest porn star she has come across. While this could be a recipe for disaster, it actually felt like a sweet romantic comedy. Rachel is the princess, but she is by no means egotistical or spoiled. She is so sweet and likeable that Gallagher managed to make me fall in love with her so very early on into the book. As she is struggling to walk in her sky-high heels, you definitely get the sense that despite her superstar status, Rachel is just a sweet girl at heart.

Further assumptions are shattered when Buck Harder aka Lee turns out not to be a cocky, suave hero but a sweet, funny and down-to-earth guy. I LOVED Lee and found his and Rachel’s chemistry to be combustible. Gallagher spends a lot of time on conversation. Her dialogue between characters is so effortless and smooth, it feels so genuine between characters. From that, you definitely get a sense that Lee and Rachel are getting to know each other in a believable pace.

Written in alternating POVs, Gallagher gives readers the best of both worlds. THE PRINCESS AND THE PORN STAR was funny, sexy and surprisingly sweet.

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
