Blog Tour: Stevie J Cole's "ExRated."

The Hopeless Romantics Book blog is pleased to be a part of the Blog Tour for Stevie J Cole's "ExRated."


Tyler Westbrook, better known as Johnny Depth, is taking the adult film industry by storm. With his playboy looks, it’s no surprise a few coworkers have attempted to take things off set and into the bedroom, but Tyler refuses to blur the lines between work and play…until the new assistant to the director walks in.

Jemma Morgan was recently fired from a lead role on a kid’s TV show that was supposed to be her big break. Unable to get another acting gig, she's accepted a job in an industry she never expected to be a part of. Although she anticipates being shocked her first few days on set, nothing could prepare her for the moment she's asked to hold the reflector as her ex-boyfriend plows through a woman like a Kansas cornfield.

In a world of butt-plugs, lube, and fake moans, is there a place for a second chance? Exes and some serious ohs…the term ex-rated just took on a whole new meaning.

Review: Surj 

Stevie J Cole's "ExRated" was one of those books that was so different to what I was expecting it to be but in such a good way. For some reason, I was expecting a story that was a little darker or twisty and I think that came from the fact that the only other book I've read by this author is "Absolution." Add to that the very hot but very dark, greyscaled cover and I put two and two together and got five because Jemma and Tyler couldn't have been more opposite if it had tried!!!! If you're looking for a story line that is definitely different, is absolutely smoking hot and has a huge side order of side splitting humour, then this book is for you. "ExRated" was a brilliant, funny, sexy, quick read that had me captivated from start to finish. 

"One more thing. Go ahead and beat one out, would you? Need to see if you're a dribbler 
or a shooter. That's gonna be one of the two clinchers on whether you get the job."

"Like right now? Jerk off right here- in your office?" 

This was childhood sweethearts, second chance romance. Tyler and Jemma met as kids and became best friends. They were inseparable and as fate would have it, their friendship turned into so much more. Unfortunately their college years lead to a break up that left Jemma devastated. Tyler was the one. He was the love of her life and he had chosen college over her. it was unforgivable. Years later, a few bad choices on both sides lead to couple's paths crossing in the most unlikeliest of ways. Who'd have thought down on her luck Jemma would end up being an assistant in the porn industry. Who'd have thought Tyler (I'm going to be a hot shot lawyer) would end up flat on his back in a porn film!!!! 

I loved the way "ExRated" unravelled. The build up was brilliant because I could just see how everything was going to unfold and it was not going to be pretty. There was still so much animosity on Jemma's part and she was not in the forgiving mood when it came to the boy that had broken her heart all those years ago. Now was the time to have a little fun. Now was the time to make that boy squirm. Now was the time for payback and she really was going to make the most of it, even if it did kill her a little each time she saw him doing the do with one of those plastic barbies. 

The thing with Tyler is he's not just a part of my past,
he's every single memory I have of my life.

I loved Jemma's character. She was brilliant and so funny. I could completely relate to her inner conflict because on the one hand, she hated Tyler for everything he had done in the past but equally, everything he had become. But love is love and you can't just turn those feelings off. Now Tyler was a pain in the ass. As cute and stubborn and comical as he was, he drove me mad with some of his decisions and choices. If you want the girl, fight for her but it was almost like he was hedging his bets!!!! Bloomin' men!!! 

"Well, I mean, what I deem professional may not professional to you, chicken. 
Professionalism in an industry where it's common courtesy to come on your 
co-worker is a little different, you know?" 

The banter between Jemma and Tyler was priceless. This was war between the couple and the claws had been drawn. May the best man/ woman win!!! Throw into the mix a crazy as hell best friend called "Heather" and the comedy value of the story turned up several notches. Some of the scenario's the characters found themselves in were just hilarious (as you can imagine with the porn industry) and some of their antics were priceless. 

If you are looking for a book that's a little different, that will definitely get you a hot under the collar (because this book is scorching hot let me tell you) and that will have you grinning like  cheshire cat for the most part, Stevie J cole's "ExRated" is a must. I mean seriously...  "Pirates of the Lesbians," "F**k my Chest," Alice in the Wondercock," Charlie's Chocolate Starfish," "The Made Shatter," "The Lone Wanker," "Finding PussyLand," "Jonny Depth," Vee Gina," ...  ha ha ha !!! 

"Tyler, I love you. I've loved you since we were six. 
I'll love you until I'm ninety-six."

I rated this book ❤️❤️❤️❤️
