Decker Steele had it made...Penthouse apartment, VIP parties, girls on tap. You see, Decker Steele is the Pornography Associations award winning, money making machine. But what does a self-confessed, pussy pounding warrior do when his prized package begins to fail? Freak the 'F' out, that's what!
Andi Jennings is the socially inept, geeky and awkward cousin of Decker's best friend. Only she's not so geeky and awkward anymore. Now she's a smokin' hot country bumpkin, with a smokey voice made for phone sex, and a pair of hot as hell cowboy boots. Everyone adores her, my porn star buddies, my mom and dad, my 'equipment'.
So, the prized package isn't so failing anymore, the catch is, it will only perform for Andi...My friend WITHOUT benefits.
What will the prince of porn do? The girl or the career?
*Reader Warning: This novel is NOT a dark romance. There are absolutely no whips or floggers, no matter how much Andi wants to smack Decker over the head at times. There are no BDSM slavery themes, unless you can count that Decker is a slave to Andi’s hot cowboy boots and sexy Texan drawl. Decker’s Wood does however feature glitter rain, manscaping, vajazzle, tequila shots, roof-top dancing and one hell of a dick trick!
I have to admit Decker’s Wood is easily one of my favorite books this year. Who knew that a porn star and a country girl could make me fall in love with them!! This book had me laughing and smiling one minute and swooning the next.
Decker was a well-known porn star and he’s damn good at what he does. For 12 years he’s been in the industry, but for the past year he’s been forced into retirement. No matter what he does he can’t get his body to truly respond to any woman without the help of little blue pills.
“Country, a sweet little thing like you couldn’t handle a man like me. I think it’s safe to say that eye f**king is as far as you and I will tangle.”
When his best friend Bradley’s cousin moves to New York, it’s the first time in a year that his body has truly reacted to a woman. Decker and Andi grew up around each other but they haven’t seen each other in 12 years. Growing up, Andi always had a crush Decker but she was too shy and nerdy to even act on and Decker was always a player. Now that they’re older, things have changed, and they both feel this intense attraction to each other.
“As for my vayjay, well, it will do just fine without male intervention. I have a technician and he runs on batteries.”
I absolutely loved Andi!!! She is probably one of my favorite female characters. She grew up from a shy girl into a fiery little Texan. She was both confidant and sweet and she was unapologetically herself. She drank, sang off key, and was an all-around cool chick. Andi and Decker had an immediate attraction but they were determined to remain friends. She doesn’t know about Decker’s career and Decker is afraid of what she might think of him. They had a genuine friendship and I enjoyed their interactions. The more time they spent together the more they wanted each other. You could feel the sexual tension and Decker had a dirty mouth to match it.
“You were everything I ever wanted and I didn’t even know it.”
Decker was smart, sexy, and he could be cocky but he was still a sweet guy. With his career he never really dated and never really wanted too but being around Andi started to change his outlook on things. There were some hilarious moments (I still giggle when I think about a helicopter) and sexy moments (Andi’s lap dance scene). I enjoyed watching their relationship develop and I was rooting for them from the beginning. This was a fun, easy read, with a dash of drama, and lots of laughs. I definitely recommend it.
