"intriguingly terrible," says a writer buddy of mine.

I’d never heard of Maverick Men when I got this book in my email for review. Yet I’ve read a few porn star biographies and the hook caught my eye. Two normal guys, in love, become incredibly popular amateur porn stars on XTube. Plus the book is about a couple that are still together, which never seems to happen in porn star tell alls. The story sounds interesting and indeed, Maverick Men is very absorbing with an engaging storytelling manner. This is definitely likely to please fans of the coupl ...more

I don't read a lot of non-fiction but since I love the Maverick Men anyhow, I had to buy this one. And I'm really glad I did. I always wondered whether Hunter's love for Cole was reciprocated since in the videos *ahem - yes I've seen them*, you can see his feelings for his older partner and Cole is by far the dominant one when the two of them are together. But after reading this book, I can understand just how far they both went to be together.

It's an honest, open, sexy book about two ord

I only gave this one three stars.

First let me say, I'm a fan of Cole and Hunter. I really enjoy their videos, and even just by watching the videos you can tell they are a great couple who really love one another and who have a lot of fun together. And I realize these guys aren't writers, they're just a couple of guys.

That said, the book is uneven. Each chapter alternates narration between Cole and Hunter, and that may be part of it. Another part of it, though, is that it wants to be both a porn

If you have seen the videos then this is a must read. If you haven’t, then this is nothing if not an interesting read.

Basically, Maverick Men is about two (real) guys who get into the XTube internet porn phenomenon and strike a note with viewers with their passion for one another and 'real' sexual encounters. Both Cole and Hunter are masculine alpha types. They work elsewhere, have little time together and porn offers them the outlet to enjoy the strong sexual appetites both have. Eventually th

This was a really fun book. I'm not going to write a detailed summary, since it's already been done well by a couple of reviewers already. But I will say that it's probably not what you would expect. I found it fascinating. You can think what you want about porn, but Cole Maverick is a bit of a business mastermind. He found that he could carve a niche in the market by taking a relatively soulless industry and adding what it was lacking - a connection to the viewer through fun and heart. I loved ...more

If this is truly how it happened, it's no wonder these guys made it big. Talk about leaping off the edge of a cliff in pursuit of happiness. They deserve every single good thing they get, and none of the bad.

I wonder, have they ever thought of the fact that many of their fans are women? Just like heterosexual men love seeing two women having sex, so do a lot of heterosexual women with men. But, there's a big difference that is the secret of their success with all their audience. Their's is not

4 1/2 stars. This was a fun filled true life romance about two normal men, one working as a Realtor, the other at a restaurant who fall in love and then realize their jobs are keeping them from seeing each other. Cole discovers XTube and being a bit of an exhibitionist decides to upload his own video. He loves the response and talks Hunter into joining him. From there the two become famous amateur porn stars and are able to quit their jobs, maintain their lifestyle and spend all their time toget ...more

Shelves: m-m, non-fiction
This book received some very positive reviews, but I cannot say I was overly impressed. The term self-indulgent springs to mind. It is readable, but if you want erotica I'd stick to fiction.

I love Hunter and Cole. I find it fascinating that this a couple who obviously love each other and got into porn as a way of making a living so they could spend time together.

Decently written and interesting to hear their backstory. Doesn't make dislike Cole any less than I already did though.

interesting read that gave an insider's look into a much thought about industry. Surprisingly well written. Good book.
Erotic and better written than I would have expected.
