Tyler Westbrook, better known as Johnny Depth, is taking the adult film industry by storm.

*****FOUR STARS*****
{ARC Provided by Author}

When Tyler kisses me, I swear it’s as though the boundaries between our bodies melt away, and we become one person. It’s always been like that, and only with him. My very soul bleeds into his with this kiss, my body betrays me because as much as I want to say I don’t want him, he’s right. It’s a damn lie.

I laughed and laughed and laughed. It's hilarious , cute, sweet book about Tyler "Johny Depth" Westbrook and Jemma Morgan. They are childhood sweethearts but have drifted apart as careers took them separate ways. Jemma nurses a broken heart because apparently, Tyler left her without a goodbye. What a twisted , funny coincidence, she works as a PA to Hudson Mathew, a porn film maker and in walks Tyler !!!
some very smart lines are written

Well…guess, I'm in the minority with this book. Again.

This is my first book from Stevie J. Cole, so I didn't have any expectations except for what was revealed in the blurb. And the blurb was decidedly intriguing: a down on her luck actress who got fired from her role as a lead actress on a kid's show meets the hot, up-and-cumming (sorry, can't resist) pornstar who just happens to be her ex! Sounds like a freaking good time read, right?

Unfortunately, it wasn't. And I could point to several iss

OH MY! MY! MY! EXRATED was a full on naughty read about a SEXY ASS PORNO STAR! It also just happened to be hilarious at times too. This is not your everyday romance novel. It was a raw and in your face erotic romance. I tell you, I learned a thing or two about making porno flics while reading it. As for my regular rating system, well it simply does not apply for this type of read, at least not for me.

I don't enjoy books with porn stars in them but if he or she will not even quite after meeting their partner, then I am NEVER touching that.

Tyler and Jemma were childhood sweethearts and shared many firsts together. Upon graduating highschool, Tyler was accepted to NYU and they parted pursuing their own interests. As time passed, they lost touch but Jemma really didn’t get over their break-up, as she felt their love would endure. Due to unexpected circumstances, Tyler finds himself in Los Angeles and is offered a job as a porn star with the name “Johnny Depth.” While Tyler doesn’t readily accept the position, he can’t turn down the

Who doesn't love a second-chance, friends-to-lovers with a bit of a hate-to-love you kind of vibe?

This book had some fabulous elements to it. The main characters - Jemma & Tyler - are both equally great in their own ways. I loved how they were reunited while each at their lowest point in life ... it brought a complexity that made the light "fun" nature of the story much more expressive and meaningful.

I couldn't really connect with the characters. I thought their flashbacks were the best things going on in the story. I think what ruined it the most for me was the vagueness in the reasoning behind their first break-up. I needed to understand why the H broke things off, especially if I am supposed to feel like they are meant to me!! He seemed all about the h and was pursuing her like he really did care for her, but if that was the case then why did he end it?!? Just because it was lon

I think the cover of EXRATED is misleading because it looks quite serious and erotic. The story is about a hot young porn star so obviously it’s got to be sexy. What the cover doesn’t convey, however, is just how freaking hilarious this book is. It’s basically a rom-com with erotic elements, so you should be prepared for foul language, dirty talking, explicit sex, and lots of tongue-in-cheek humor.

Tyler and Jemma have loved each other since they were six. Despite a painful breakup and a four-yea

This is NOT safe! I am giving it two stars just for the cheesy porn names Johnny Deph (haha) that name really cracked me up! I don't normally like this type of book but the witty banter and the way the heroine constantly made fun of him was just too funny. So yeah two stars for making me laugh! ...more

This book is all the things! One of those rare books that you can’t put down until it’s done. Love, love, love it!

Imagine. You’re Jemma, a down on your luck girl and the only job you can get is as an assistant to a porn director. Then one day, you go to work and your one true love, your soulmate, the one that got away, Tyler, is none other than Johnny Depth, the lead porn star in the film you are working.

I requested this book because of the blurb, but I kept reading because of the writing. This is my first book by Stevie J Cole, so I didn’t have any expectations going into in it. I just knew that I was curious about what happens when you stumble upon your ex at a porn shoot.

Can you say awkward?

Let me start by saying that I think the author’s writing is fantastic. I enjoyed the book, even though I had a couple of problems with the actions of the characters (I’ll get to that part in a minute).

3 stars!!!

“I’d fucking ruin you if you’d let me.”

This was a fun read from Stevie J Cole that embraced two tropes that I love to read about, second chance romance and love/hate relationships, add to this a porn star element and my curiosity was piqued.

“What defines him is the way he loves me, and that is something no one will ever be able to taint or ruin. After all these years, turns out we do have that epic kind of love that can withstand anything.”

Blurb. Check.
Writing. Check.

I love porn. I was excited to read this cause, helloooo, it's about porn. The storyline was going smoothly from the beginning but then it didn't. The problem for me was the heroine was to wishy washy and I wanted more angst. There was some but when certain things happened, the angst wasn't delivered. It had it's funny moments. I didn't like the way it ended. Felt sitcomish. *shrugs shoulders*

Exrated was a hilarious and sexy story. About porn none the less. I've read one other book by Stevie J. Cole, A Love So Tragic and it took my breath away. Literally. So I went into this book with some different expectations since I read the blurb and knew this was in the romance comedy genre. Stevie J. Cole nailed it. This was so different and yet so good.
I haven't read many stories about the main character being a porn star but the ones I have didn't do it for me. This certainly did.

Java Girl's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Exrated was such a disappointment for me. I loved Stevie J. Cole’s A Love So Tragic, she really conveyed the depth of emotion and the connection between those two main characters.

Unfortunately, that isn't the case for Exrated. I know this book is meant to be funny and lighthearted, but for me, it was neither. Everything about this book was shallow--plot, character development, dialogue, even the internal dialogue of both main characters,
This is my second romance read that included a PORN STAR, and let me just say, I'm REALLY diggin' this genre! Much more than I thought I would actually. I've never heard of Stevie J. Cole before but after coming across the blurb for EXRATED, I knew I needed more because my interest was definitely piqued! On top of the HELLA sexy cover and the interesting synopsis, there was the fact that this is a second chance, friends to lovers romance. It doesn't get much better than those two tropes I'll tel ...more

Well, this was different... I've read loads (although sadly not all) of Stevie J. Cole's books and I've thoroughly enjoyed those that I have read.

When I saw the cover for this book, I guess I had my own preconceived ideas (I hadn't read the synopsis - SJC's name was enough for me) and boy was I far off!
This story is hot as hell in some places and side splittingly funny in others! I've got to admit that I may have cringed a time or two too.

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

How do you pair a porn star with romance & make it totally believable.Your best bet would be is to read it the way the author intended you to where nothing is hidden & everything is exposed.For maximum pleasure throw your morals to the wind,abandon your reality at the door & step into this world.

This book actually echoes the reality of countless couples that have a partner that work in the porn industry & in the end for them it's just a job to feed their families.Sean of SC & Vadim Black are pri

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Even though I have never read a book by Stevie J. Cole, I knew immediately from the blurb that this book was going to be a second chance romance, and also down and dirty, which are two of my favorite qualities in a love story. When Tyler and Jemma get together they are force of nature that leave you winded and perspiring...they are just that good! Who would have thought that a porn star and an actress from a children's show would be so explosive

Stevie J. Cole likes to write realistic stories with raw, gritty characters you should hate but can't help but to love.

She's obsessed with rock music, loves sloths, and has an unnatural obsession with British accents.

Her books are not recommended for the faint of heart.
