I guess I just forgot.
To ask him what he did for a living, I mean.
And by the time I did, I was in—balls deep, as he’d call it.
He was the perfect boyfriend.
Attentive, gorgeous, guessing my every wish and fulfilling them.
The sex was earth-shattering.
He even dealt with my crazy mom the way no one else could.
He popped the question, God, such a perfect guy.
There was just one issue:
He f*cked other girls on camera for a living.
How the hell do you deal with that?
This book. Sunniva Dee has easily cemented herself as an author who writes without abandon. And this book is no different. Her storylines are unparalleled. Her writing, lyrical. But the words of this book? Astound me.
Ciro Silveira is a very confident man. So when he immediately gravitates to Savannah, a woman with so much going on, he’s a bit taken a back. She doesn’t need a boyfriend, but Ciro wants to do everything to change her mind. Enthralling, captivating, their chemistry is simply magical. As much as Savannah is all caught up in the wonderness of Ciro, something feels off. He can’t get enough of her, and he’s devastatingly handsome. But what does he do? Why has he not mentioned anything before? Want to know what happens when she finds out? Read. This. Book.
Ciro and Savannah are magnets. The allure to them and their relationship cannot fully be captured into words. In true Sunniva Dee fashion, she has produced a storyline unlike you’ve ever read. The synopsis doesn’t even capture a fragment of the complexity and originality of the narrative of this story. Despite any conceptions you may have regarding the title, push them all away. The author masterfully depicts an authentic and genuine take on falling in love with someone like Ciro. And all that comes with loving him. The honesty here between them is astonishing. Regardless of his job title, he’s a person first. And he loves deeply. Relentlessly. You are pushed and challenged to see beyond the title and the job occupation, and to truly see into Ciro’s heart. Can we talk about the writing? Candid, sincere, and unfeigned. Defiant in it’s unfolding. Sunniva never follows the rules. And she never has to. This story was told with a conscientious decorum that only this author could truly capture. Poetic in her approach, meticulous in her execution, the author innately and effortlessly weaves a unique and unforgettable story. You are simply seduced by the words of this book.
The Truth About Porn Star Boyfriends was palpable. Even with it’s lighter moments, there was something deep here. An underlying message. One that will keep me thinking about this book and its characters, for DAYS to come. Your heart will beat over Ciro and Savannah’s story. Daring and bold, these are the kinds of stories we need. Blatant and unashamed. The author’s capacity for telling a story with her unequivocal voice does not go unnoticed in this book. Written with such candor and sincerity, this is definitely one of my top reads of 2017.
About the Author
Between studies, teaching, and advising, Sunniva has spent her entire adult life in a college environment. Most of her novels are new adult romance geared toward smart, passionate readers with a love for eclectic language and engaging their brain as well as their heart while reading.
Born in the Land of the Midnight Sun, the author spent her early twenties making the world her playground. Southern Europe: Spain, Italy, Greece--Argentina: Buenos Aires, in particular. The United States finally kept her interest, and after half a decade in Los Angeles, she now lounges in the beautiful city of Savannah.
Sometimes, Sunniva writes with a paranormal twist (Shattering Halos, Stargazer, and Cat Love). At other times, it's contemporary (Pandora Wild Child, Leon's Way, Adrenaline Crush, Walking Heartbreak, and Dodging Trains, coming in late March 2016).
This author is the happiest when her characters let their emotions run off with them, shaping her stories in ways she never foresaw. She loves bad-boys and good-boys run amok, and like in real life, her goal is to keep the reader on her toes until the end of each story.
