I guess I just forgot.
To ask him what he did for a living, I mean.
By the time I did, I was in—deep.
He was the perfect boyfriend.
Attentive, gorgeous, guessing my every wish and fulfilling them.
The sex was earth-shattering.
He even dealt with my crazy mom the way no one else could.
He popped the question, God, such a perfect guy.
There was just one issue:

"Is it too early to ask how you like your sex?"
"Of course not. After all, we're on the second date. Isn't it time we talk about intercourse?"


Ciro Silveira needs a girlfriend really badly. He craves a normal relationship, even a marriage with kids. So far, he is not lucky. After 50 (yes 50!) attempts which resulted in failure, Ciro meets Savannah.
“You’re the perfect boyfriend. What is it— Do you get sick of them and move on or something?”
“Ha, no. The relationship goes sick. They don’t last long.

i thought this would have had a fairy-tale'ish twist to it.. but nope, the hero continues to have sex with women and men for his job, even after chasing after the not- so-great-looking heroine. Literally chasing, as in sending flowers everyday till she said yes to being his girlfriend. All that without telling her the truth about his job. Till around 45% when she finds out while accidentally watching porn with her roommates. Yes, he really is a PORN STAR and yes, i felt like the heroine was a co ...more

Please be prepared for my rant..
(view spoiler)Soooo.... maybe I am just not normal or the complete exception here but No... just no. I am that person that gets a little miffed when couples part ways and have "relations" with other people.. I know it's stupid and not logical but it hurts my heart a little in any book I read that goes that way. BUT to actually be straight up "fucking" other people while being in a relationship is such a disgusting turn off for me. As nice as Caio

First things first. Sunniva Dee never seizes to amaze me. I have to be honest and say with this book's title I was curious, a little nervous and yet again I knew Sunniva Dee would give it her magic touch. Her stories are one of kind and so are her characters. My expectations were blown to smithereens cause boy oh boy did I love this story and was wooed properly by Ciro Silveira.

Ciro Silveira is not a man with an ordinary job. No, he works in the adult movie industry. He's not a typical porn star

I flew through this book! I was hooked from the very first page. Ciro was ahh-mazing! He was super hot and exactly what most girls want in a man. Savannah was also perfect. I found myself having the same thoughts and questions she would have. I am a very jealous person so I don't know what I'd have done if I found out my mans career AFTER I'd already fallen in lov

When Ciro saw Savanna for the first time, in a restaurant where she works, he was taken by her beauty. He chases Savannah to be his girlfriend but she's having some apprehension especially when she learned that he's an actor, Savanna doubts his sincerity, moreover, he's vague about the kind of movie he did. But Ciro pursued her relentlessly and our heroine just can't help but give in. And Ciro proved to be a great boyfriend, very attentive and he let Savanna feel special. Everything is

All authors have a distinct style which makes their narrative tone, their voice, unique. Of course Sunniva is no exception to this. Her books have a lead character with an edge, and the other protagonist is the calm counterpoint. That holds true here.

Sav is naive(ish) and easily flustered. Her lack of poise is endearing and completely at odds with Ciro who is smooth and unruffled to the point of frustration.

But this book isn't just the story of boy meets girl. Whilst one could approach this boo

Let's all sit around and have a talk. What if you met the perfect man? I mean writes you random word poetry, beautiful flowers and always has a sweet compliment on hand. You'd think something is wrong like maybe an extra two toes or he hates puppies. Well Savannah thinks Ciro is perfect but surely something is amiss.

Savannah is the girl who lives by the status quo. Get up and work her 3 jobs and take care of her mom. A mom who needs more supervision than a wayward out of control teenager. She li

This book. Sunniva Dee has easily cemented herself as an author who writes without abandon. And this book is no different. Her storylines are unparalleled. Her writing, lyrical. But the words of this book? Astound me.

Ciro Silveira is a very confident man. So when he immediately gravitates to Savannah, a woman with so much going on, he’s a bit taken a back. She doesn’t need a boyfriend, but Ciro wants to do everything to change her mind. Enthralling, captivating, their chemistry is simply magica

I was so intrigued by this concept that I one-clicked when I found it on KU. I don’t think it’s a secret from the blurb that he’s a porn star and she’s oblivious for the first half of the book. The tone, IMO, is lighter/less serious, and (secret porn star aside) Ciro is #boyfriendgoals, BUT I wouldn’t recommend to strict safety gangers because there’s deceit. Not malicious deceit, but the h is still blindsided.

I have mixed feelings about it. It was pretty entertaining from a fluffy-smut standpo

Given the title and description of this book, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Having read most of this author's previous books, I knew deep down that she would come up trumps. I wasn't wrong!

Savannah works as a waitress besides her two other jobs of dog walking and marketing. She also looks out for her mother. She shares accommodation with an interesting bunch of characters, happy with her way of life.

Ciro is a porn star. Something that he has been involved in from a young age and has lear

OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, so I get that the title may have you forming certain preconceived notions about this book.

But let me tell you.

This book was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! Sunniva knocked it outta the park. Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh!!! I'm still smiling from it, and I stopped reading like an hour ago.

Such a wonderful, low-stress, emotional-at-times contemporary romance...the story itself is like a modern-day fairy tale. I couldn't out it down! I blew through it in 2 sittings.

Oh, and Ciro is total

I've been reading Sunniva Dee books for a long time now and I have to admit....this is one of my favorites. I knew from the second I heard the title that this book was going to be good...I just knew it. I love being right!!! LOL These characters had me hooked from the beginning and so did the story. It just flowed so effortlessly. so believably, so completely organically.

CIro was the perfect book boyfriend, he was hot, smart, romantic, attentive...everything a girl could want in a boy.

5 Non Status Quo Stars for The Truth About Porn Star Boyfriends

The title sounds like one heck of a RomCom follie, and though it definitely has its comedic moments, the story goes far deeper than your typical RomCom tropes.

Savannah...I could identify with her on more levels than I care to admit. She followed her mom to California, because someone needed to keep an eye on her. She is a young woman, just trying to keep it all together, working three jobs and living with several roommates, and dre

This was a little bit harder for me to rate than other books by Sunniva Dee but in a good way. It was different than her other stories, less intense but in no way lacking. I went back and forth between irritation with Ciro and respect for Savannah to respecting Ciro and being irritated with Savannah!

In the beginning Ciro made me uncomfortable - he was just too smooth, too bold, too sure of himself. I kept thinking "I would never spend time with this man how can Savannah stand it?" Then I rememb

I read mainly romance, but this was my first book with a porn star as one of the main characters. I was intrigued and wasn't sure what to expect. I don't like books with cheating, but this book didn't give me those cheating vibes. I loved Ciro, the porn star, and he seems like such a good guy. Seriously, the perfect boyfriend, except for his job. I think his situation was explained well, and I found myself so wrapped up in this book and fell so in love with Ciro. I was rooting for him all the wa ...more

So good!

This is the 3rd book of this type I've read (angsty with a porn star, not straight erotica) and this one was so good! I really liked them all but this one might be my favorite. Maybe because savannah's reactions and decisions felt so realistic? I'm not sure but the writing was very good and I loved the characters. Highly recommend!

This is the Sunniva Dee book that you didn't see coming.

This author likes to take risks, not only in her writing style, but also with the book's content. Nothing is cut and dry for her and nothing is off-limits. That's what intrigues me so much about her books. I don't know what's coming or what she'll come up with next.

When I first read this title, my cheeks flushed. At just the title! I mean, come on. Really? Seriously? I was hesitant to say the least. But I read it, because it's a Sunniva Dee

I've not read anything by this author, I was drawn to it because of the subject matter. The heroine starts dating this really hot guy. He never talks about himself but plays the perfect boyfriend to her, he's a good listener, sends her flowers and is considerate towards her. Then she discovers he's a porn star.

This wasn't a particularly well written book in my opinion, the two lead characters are not well fleshed out. She's a little flakey and lacks confidence, while he's very quick with an ans

I liked it. Its just that I never truly felt the love between the MC's. Ciro was a little too intense for me at times.

What I really liked about this book is that it made me think and question myself. What would I do in a situation like that? I personally can't imagine being in a relationship with a porn star but I can understand why some people do. This book showed us that they are regular people that have a very unconventional job. Still, to be in a relationship with one can't be easy. I think

This book... seriously. First off the title intrigued me. Then I read the blurb and was even more intrigued. When I finally opened it? I couldn't put it down. I wanted to know what was gonna happen between Ciro and Savannah and I didn't want to wait! Savannah was back and forth. Normally that would have irritated me, but in this book I SO understood her hesitation. I understood her fears, moral beliefs, heart-felt feelings; I understood her. Ciro was interesting, he was unique. He knew what he w ...more

I was in a bit of a bookfunk the last weeks and Ciro and Savannah‘s story was just what I needed to pull me out of it, different and refreshing, I enjoyed „The Truth about Porn star boyfriends“ very much.
Sunniva Dee made me fall for Ciro so completely, many times I was like „oh come on Savannah, he loves you, just get over it“ but of course I absolutely understand her feelings and I‘m still not sure of my own reaction in that situation. I‘d have to find a Ciro first of course ;)

The Truth About Porn Star Boyfriends is yet isn't what I expected.
You get the idea from the blurb, you think you know how this will go but you really don't.
Savannah's sweet, naive really. Fresh out of a seriously messed up relationship, add to that her sexual hangup and you realize this girl could easily be railroaded.
And for quite awhile, regardless of his charm and excuses, that's how I felt Ciro was treating her.
I get his reasons for keeping his secret as long as he did BUT there were times/s

I have read other books by Sunniva and love all of her books.

In this story we have Savannah. She works three jobs, lives with multiple roommates and she still barely gets by with her pay. Savannah is always on the phone with her mom who needs guarding like a teenager. Her mom is not well in the head and Savannah isn't taking that news well at all.
