    1. This could have been an angsty read. Because. PORN. But that's not K.C.'s style, and this book is as sweet as they come. Mike, one of the MCs, is a veteran of the porn industry, a sexy bear over 40 (THAT COVER, y'all, that cover!) who goes by the name Scott Masters. "Scott" is versatile and has a loyal following. Mike is also a part-time bartender at a gay bar. When Mike meets the gorgeous, innocent college boy Tommy, who always perches on the same bar stool and orders a cheeseburger and Cherry [...]

    2. There was just something about this one that kept me from loving it. Can't really put my finger on what. It was good. But something was missing. Or maybe it's because Mike was a big fat hypocrite! I honestly wasn't too bothered by the whole porn star thing and Mike keeping it a secret. Until he said"My point is, when two adults are in a relationship, they talk about things, and that includes sex."Needless to say, Mike does not heed his own advice and it comes back to bite him in the ass. As I kn [...]

    3. *3.5 stars*It seems crazy when I think about it, but I've read nearly a dozen books featuring porn stars. The concept of the seasoned porn star and the eager virgin is not new at all, but there is some part of me that is always drawn to that theme. First has a ton of tropes that are common in M/M romance. Religious family- check! Closeted virgin in college?- check! Family drama upon coming out?- check! So was this book new feeling? Not really but I still liked it. I liked the romance, which was [...]

    4. Shit this book. So this was what I was doing while reading this : laughing, snorting, crying, cursing, yelling, fanning myself, swooning and so on.I loved it !!! Every single page. It's a bit of a cliche I think. Older pornstar (42) meets young innocent virgin farmboy (19), but let me tell you, this was very different from what I expected.Tommy has grown up somewere in the south and his parents are god fearing idiots. Tommy is gay, but he never acted on it, because he was told that being gay mea [...]

    5. Is there an author whose books are your complete comfort reads? Where you turn to, when you had a bad day and you want to read something "safe", meaning that it's almost certain that you 'll like it? K.C.Wells does that for me and this book was no exception. Like all her books, it is sweet, steamy, somewhat angsty ( the kind that breaks your heart at some point but puts it back together very gently) with a sparkling HEA.Mike is a 40 something porn actor. He has been in the industry for more than [...]

    6. I need to start this review by saying that I sometimes do like to torture myself by searching specifically for romance books that involve porn actors, because I think that doing porn is something that really messes with a person’s emotional life and is likely to kill any traditional romance. So a book with this setting will either be extremely thrilling or downright bad.I admit, usually these books are bad. Pretty bad. Like smack-the-characters-with-a-frying-pan-because-they’re-so-incredibly [...]

    7. Review originally posted at Sinfully Addicted to All Male RomanceNineteen year old Tommy Newsome has just started his second year at the University of Georgia. Raised in a conservative, religious household, he was fairly sheltered on the farm where he grew up and spent the first year of college in his room coping with the culture shock. He has just set foot into his first gay club in Atlanta with his friend and roommate Ben and knows it is not for him. Gathering his courage and his fake ID, he m [...]

    8. First is the story of Tommy Newsome, a very young and naïve man who is away from his religious family attending college and who is coming to terms with his sexuality. With is best friend, Ben being a little more forward in his sexuality, Tommy finds it hard to find his footing amidst the pulsating music and barely dressed men in the club – leaving to find a more laidback setting. Woofs. Mike might be a favorite bartender for many but it’s is other job that brings him the glimmer of fame. Sc [...]

    9. This was really enjoyable! Good story and great narration of the audiobook.There have been a few niggles, one rage-inducing moment caused by Tommy's religious family, and one how-can-you-be-so-stupid moment when Mike behaved well, stupidly but otherwise it was a sweet and steamy story with a lot less angst than I expected given the porn star theme.The secondary characters were a great addition to the story. Mike's friends from the bar were interesting and I wouldn't mind reading their stories, t [...]

    10. 5 stars from me, no other rating will do. The fact that I've been lucky enough to get an ARC yet again from KC has nothing to do with it either’s all about the story, the wonderfully engaging characters (Tommy Newsome I <3 you), the crisp prose (this time, the story is set in the US and reads as though it is) and the overwhelming Puddle of Goo factor, which for me, sealed the deal.I'm not going into too much detail cos you all REALLY need to read this one BUT as the blurb suggests, Mike is [...]

    11. Tommy is 19, fresh off the farm, literally, and just beginning to own up to the fact he’s gay. His roommate, Ben, is bisexual and more than willing to take Tommy under his very experienced wing to the gay clubs in Atlanta so Tommy can start seeing, and maybe even getting, some action.The club scene is too loud, too boisterous, and just too much for Tommy. After seeing an ad in a gay publication for a gay sports bar called “Woofs” in the area Tommy hikes up his big boy pants, heads over…a [...]

    12. That's me and this book.I loved parts of it.An aging porn star who wants to get out of the business, and finally finds the man who motivates him to do so? Age gap?A virgin, and all that yummy, yummy exploration and first times?Dirty talk?This book is all that and the chocolate topping on a sundae. But I also hated parts of it.The side plots that created unnecessary drama.The hypocrisy.The lies.And the glaring fact that nowadays, unless you specifically say the word exclusive and relationship in [...]

    13. The easy narration and the detailed descriptions are what I like in Well’s books, but here, I couldn’t like or at least feel for the characters, especially Mike, the MCs both seemed so naïve and even silly at times that I could hardly relate to them.It was bugging me that Mike couldn’t figure out anything about a relationship! The fact that anything happened, his friends should come to the scene and instruct him what is the next step to take, just in a way weakened his character. It could [...]

    14. Overall book rating: 4.25Audio book: Gregory - 4.5Book cover: 3.8 StarsCAMERA, LIGHTS, ACTION!!!!!Mike Scott aka "Scott Masters" finds himself performing a role of a whole different kind when he's confronted with the refreshing innocence of college student Tommy Newsome.Classic world wise guy meets shy youngster. But also oh so different. I really enjoyed the whole package that was Tommy and I liked the way the story unfolded. Even though Mike’s profession is something of a “pull-the-rug-fro [...]

    15. Oh my. I only just finished reading and I have to allow this book to percolate for a while before I write down my thoughts. This is something special though, and not JUST because it's a wonderful story.My review comes with a bit of a warning. I'm fairly sure I've managed to avoid spoilers. However, if you want this book to surprise you while your reading it, I'd advice you to just stop reading here.This is going to be a review in two parts and I’ll start with Mike and Tommy’s story. As love [...]

    16. Warm comfy MM romance with typical and familiar plot that didn't hold my interest. There wasn't enough sizzle to engage me and I even got bored and stopped reading at one point. The cover did tweak my interest into toggling over to one of my Dirk Caber's videos though. I didn't care enough about the MCs and their story. I just didn't warm up to Mike because he couldn't pull his head out of his ass without the coaching of his friends. Tommy was too naive and ignorant for this day in time, especia [...]

    17. NOT for me at all. I'm sorry, I really REALLY wanted to like it, but I just couldn't. Still I have to emphasize that this in NO way means I didn't appreciate KC's writing. Her writing is wonderful it's just the topic and the premise, and how things went about that really didn't work for me.I have absolutely NO problems with the whole Porn or Rent-Boy trope, at all, whatsoever, and I've definitely really enjoyed quite a few books where one or both tropes have featured. It's just how things were [...]

    18. Mike, an aging porn star (he's been for 20 years in the job) meets a 19 years old, blushing virgin and falls in love head over heels.The age gap of 24 years is immense and Mike's job might be not every ones cup of coffee.All in all, I liked the story. If the age difference and the porn backdrop don't bother you, the book is a great read.

    19. 3 1/2 stars.I'm usually not into big age gaps. If the gap it's 10 years or less, I find it manageable and that doesn't stop me from enjoying the book if it is good. Specially if the younger MC is wise beyond his years for some reason or another. This was not the case here. I found the age difference to be too much and always in the back of my mind when the MCs were together. Tommy (even his name made him sound like a little kid) was 19 to Mike's 43. If you think about it, by the time Tommy is do [...]

    20. I've been saving this like the last piece of chocolate cake and when it went down it was sweet. Well worth the wait. Lovely read. 4.5 stars and highly recommended!A couple of side thoughts. Porn actors deserve hospitalization, a good pension plan and bonuses. Bleh, the shit you go through to make a living. Age gap. Poorly written and it could come off as skeevy. Not here. I thought KC did a fine job with the over 20-year gap here. The firsts in this book were well thought out and exceptionally w [...]

    21. I like the way K.C.Wells writes, there is such sweetness about her stories. And sometimes you don't want a new and original story, you want something familiar and comfortable just to feel cosy. And while I usually don't enjoy stories that are based on one character keeping a big secret form the other, Mike and Tommy were so nice and likeable it was just fine reading about them whatever they did. I also liked very much all the scenes about Mike working - fascinating.What I didn't like - and what [...]

    22. Note: This book was provided to me by the publisher through Hearts on Fire Reviewsin exchange for an impartial review. From the moment I first gazed at that gorgeous man on the cover, to the moment I completed his story, I was captivated by Mike Scott, aka Scott Masters, porn star, and Tommy Newsome, the young man with whom he fell in love. Mike is working his part time job as a bartender at Woofs, a gay sports bar in Atlanta, when he notices a fresh-faced young man at the end of the bar who see [...]

    23. 3.5 stars A few housekeeping items to address. First, I love that the cover model actually resembles Mike including the correct age-range, and is still smokin'. Second, I hate when a book ends 30 pages before you think it's going to because there are so many advertisements at the end. Okay, rant over, onto the book.I really liked this story, although I'll admit to enjoying the first half more. Tommy was great and I loved the slow build with Mike. I could understand Mike's reticence and it felt r [...]

    24. First times are special, and Tommy and Mike's story shows that in more than one way. Both men are fascinating characters with many layers, multiple secrets, and sometimes painful pasts. I thought it was pretty special that they share Tommy's "first time", but what made it extra special is that much of what happens is Mike's first time well. Not physically, but emotionally. And for me, this books was all about showing the power of emotions - both good and bad - in a relationship that is anything [...]

    25. 3.5-4 starsI was pretty conflicted about picking up this book.Porn, yes, please. I love stories about porn actors. But K.C. Wells and me have not proven to be a good match in the past. This is the 4th book of hers I have picked up, and two of them I have had to just put down again, unfinishedThat was not the case here, though. This was a very enjoyable and (almost too) sweet story about an aging porn actor and a young naive man getting together.Tommy is 19, just coming to turns with the fact tha [...]

    26. I loved this book! It was awesome. So sweet. I love that the age difference wasn't ever really an issue. I love how Mike never looked at Tommy as anything other that a suitable partner despite their age difference. I loved how Ben's family just took over when his own parents were shits. I can't seem to find anything I didn't love about this story.

    27. It looks like I’m in the minority here, as I’m not wholly feeling the love for this book. This was a release that I was really excited about getting my hands on. The premise of aging porn star and hot young virgin was riiiight up my alley. Being set in Georgia was a bonus for this reader.I’ve only read a few other K.C. Wells books and rated them with strong I-LIKED-them-3-stars. I like K.C.’s stories and have every intention of reading more of her work.Unfortunately, for me, it didn’t [...]

    28. A beautiful heartwarming romance. This was a sweet story about Mike the porn star / barman and Tommy the shy virgin college student. With a 20 year age gap Tommy was drawn to Mike from his first meet and slowly found the confidence to speak to Mike then eventually ask him to be his first. Tommy found love and courage with Mike so he finally came out to his parents who in return shunned and disowned him. Thankfully his room mates beautiful family took him in and loved him . After all of the drama [...]
