Review: Lingus by Mariana Zapata

Genre: Romance, Contemporary, NA, Rom Com

Pages: 275

Released: February 8th 2012

Goodreads Summary:   Most people would describe Katherine Berger as a responsible girl with a big heart, a loyal friend who takes care of those close to her, and the possessor of a wicked sense of humor. There was something about her that most people didn’t know. “My name is Kat Berger, and I love porn.”

When twenty-five-year-old Kat is dragged to a porn convention by her best friend, she’s both embarrassed and nervous. The last thing she ever expected was to meet someone who makes her laugh like no other. This is a story about acceptance and friendship, and a love born out of the most unexpected of places.

My Rating: 5 HUMMINGBIRD STARS 

My Review: Oh Lingus…I loved him so much. I couldn’t imagine being in the friend zone with a porn star. Especially a hot one. You know, you read about teachers, actors and rock stars. Why not porn stars? Afterall, are they not just normal people off camera?

Tristan was the Clark Kent of porn. He hid his identity behind glasses and hair dye and an alias. When off camera, he was a law student, a nerd even, but he was lonely. He just wanted someone to see him for would he truly was. Kat did just that.

Although, she felt an attraction to him instantly, she agreed to just be friends with him. She did just that. She nurses him back to health when he is sick. He helps her clean up after an embarrassing mishap. Thank God, they are just friends…right?

When he leaves to go shoot more movies, she finds herself saddened by the thought of him being it other woman. She tries to forget about her feelings and be a friend to Tristan when he returns.

She could never be in a relationship with him, right? There would be too much jealousy involved when he had to do his “job” on-screen. She couldn’t actually be with someone how has sex with other people for a living..could she?

I really liked this one, believe it or not. It was a quick read for me. I started and finished it in one afternoon. I loved the banter between Kat and Tristan. You can almost feel the sexual tension while reading this during a few scenes. And no don’t get freaked out thinking there are a lot of porn scenes. This story is told through the eyes of Kat.
