Synopsis

When high school football jock Matt and his best friend, Demsey, begin having sexual relations, Matt thinks of himself as just another horny teenager, but when Demsey’s dad seduces him, he realizes he has the face, body, and endowment that can drive men crazy. During his first year of college, he tries to maintain a straight façade, but he is unable to sublimate his constant craving for gay sex, eventually succumbing to his roommate’s advances. After a tryst on the beach with a soccer player, the thought of becoming a porn star begins to crystallize, but it is only after he wins the Mr. Eight Plus competition that he immerses himself in the porn industry. After a successful career in the porn milieu, he accidentally runs into Demsey, and the love they’d shared as teenagers is reignited.

Review

ThreeandHalfStars

This story follows Matt through his journey of becoming a gay porn star. Despite the narrative POV, which I did enjoy, the story offers little in the way of character development. It is really just a story of all of the people that Matt has sex with. You catch a glimpse of some character development in the first few chapters when you are given a chance to see how Matt and Dempsey, his high school friend, interact. They are typical teenage boys – following the discovery of some DVD’s in Dempsey’s dad’s room, they engage in a quasi “relationship”. However, because at that age, many people are confused about themselves and their own identity, things become muddled and eventually, each boy goes their own direction.

What follows are endless chapters of sex with strangers, sex with people who become friends and of course, sex with other porn stars. Then, at the end, the story is wrapped with a bow and ends, quite abruptly.

Although this book has A LOT of sex in it – it seems to be the same scenes written over and over – same descriptors, same tone.

This story had a lot of potential, but I felt that it just didn’t really hit the mark for me. If you want a short read, with a lot of sex in it, but not much else, then this book is for you.
