ARC Review: I, Pornstar

descriptionMy name is Quinn Blackwood:
By day, I'm a billionaire CEO. Rich. Entitled.By night, I'm the exclusive porn star only known as Q.Why? Because I love women. If I believed in an almighty being, I'd thank him for creating them. They're by far his most perfect creation… especially when I'm fucking one of them.

Oh, did I mention I'm an asshole? Fuck yeah. According to my shrink, I'm one twisted motherfucker. And that's just the way I like it. Until she walks into my life…

My name is Elyse Gilbert, nicknamed ‘Lucky' because according to my dad, I'm the unluckiest person alive, and I'll die the same way I came into the world: naked, screaming, and dirt poor.

Yeah, my life is a twisted, seething mess. But that life changed the day I met HIM.He made me forget the cameras.He made me forget I was doing this for the money.He made me forget my shame.He made me forget everything. I was consumed by him.

Only him.

But now my past has caught up with me.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
4.5 "yours" stars

Oh my I, Porn star was a complete and perfect surprise for me! When reading the blurb I never could have imagine what a story I would get. I think that was the best part. Even if in some aspects and after reading it all I find the title a bit too much, I don't care!

Quinn Blackwood is not your traditional porn star, he's first and foremost a CEO and one of the wealthiest man on earth. He has also in his our words a dark soul, a little deranged. He has a shrink for 10 years but she sucks cock better than she listens!


As you can imagine Quinn loves women and he loves to fuck them. He has a production in place but as his face is famous he needs a lot of privacy and set-up to organise all this. He meets Lucky while interviewing her for a position in his latest release. His offer is simple: 1 million in exchange for 1 month of pleasure.

Elyse aka Elly aka Lucky has not other choice but to accept this man offer. She doesn't know anything about him, no name, not even his voice is real but how can you refuse when you try to escape your past?

Zara Cox is a new author to me and I enjoyed her writing's style from the beginning. She captured me with her characters, with the intensity of their stories and with the pace and mysteries in the book.
The plot is very well constructed and the whole story unfolds slowly in front of your eyes.
In true words, I wasn't expecting to give this book 4.5 star. I didn't know what would be in it. I had no idea how you could mix up a well-known CEO with a porn star.

But Quinn Blackwood is a mystery you want to solve. He is so detached, so in control all the times, it's almost scary. I would say that when you meet him, you are most definitely scared to breathe the same air as he is, just in case you he isn't ok with you being there.

Lucky has no idea that the guy she is about to work with is already someone she met recently.
I loved her character because she is strong. She had a difficult past, one she didn't choose but she has mission and wants it accomplish at all cost.

“Q?” “Hmm?” “No cameras?” “No. Not tonight. This is for you…for me…for us.”


The connection she has with Q, the porn star is sizzling, yet just a physical attraction. The bond she creates with Quinn, the CEO is powerful, yet guarded.

”The connection between us is soul-searing. He lets me see his pain, his fury, the desolation that has eaten away at him. I also see entreaty and regret.”

The reason I deducted0.5 to my rating was because the last 5% were a bit rushed. I wanted a little more Quinn & Elyse (view spoiler)

Now I see I, Pornstar will be a part of a series, so I have one question for Zara Cox: Are we going to have a story about Alex?
