I refused to work my way up the company ladder by sexually favoring my sleazy boss. I was beginning to lose hope. Until one day, he surprised me with an assignment that would literally rock my world.

I never imagined my first assignment being my last. But Brent Nichols worked his way inside every way possible, unlocking something within me. 

Becoming a porn star was never part of the plan. Neither was changing my name. 

Everyone else knows me as Lucy Rogers, but you can call me Lotus Raine.

“We don’t have to do this tonight, but you’ll just be prolonging the inevitable if you decide against it.” His hand moved to my neck, cradling it as it fell back and his free hand trailed up my thigh, moving under the jean fabric of my shorts. “If you don’t want to go all the way, I won’t fight it, but let me at least give you a taste of what you’ll be missing out on.” He bent down, whispering into my ear, licking the edge of it as his finger slipped beneath the security of my cotton panties. Man was I thankful for my non-painted on shorts at that very moment. And so was my conscious pussy.
I bit my lip—hard—suppressing the moan. I internalized it by pressing my center closer to him, as his finger moved in and out of me deeper and faster.
“So wet. So wet and tight.” He murmured praises into my neck as he recklessly worked his finger in and out of me. I had never been touched as possessively and with such expertise as I had with him. In my mind, he had to be a professional fingerer. That had to be a profession, right?
Knocking at the door broke through my consciousness and caused my body to tense.  “Wait your fuckin’ turn,” he turned his head, yelling toward the door.
“We need to go,” I said hesitantly as he continued working his finger, adding his thumb to the mix as he rubbed my clit. My hands pressed into the top of the counter as I pushed myself further into the wall. I could feel it deep within me—signs of what was to come, forming and beginning to crackle throughout my body. Like an electrical current seeking full charge. Sparks here and there uniting, wanting to become one combustible unit.
“We aren’t leaving this bathroom until you get off. Either by my finger or my dick. The choice is yours.”
“Seriously?” I withered even more beneath him. “Who talks like that?” I had never been so turned on in all my life. It wasn’t just the way he was touching me, but that damn mouth of his could get me off by words alone.
“Men who know what they’re doing.” He looked up and gave me a sexy smirk.

We first meet Lucy Rogers as she is going to work again hoping that she might finally get the chance to actually interview and research her favorite band as an assignment for work.  But, as you guessed it she got pushed aside for Rachel, who of course pushes her bosses buttons in the one way Lucy refuses.  As her morning continues she decides to take a break and get her something to drink and a package of starburst.  Well as fate would have it the vending machine jams and she is left trying to figure out how to get her candy.

This is where Brent or Magic Man comes in and helps Lucy out.  He man handles the machine into giving her the candy that has gotten stuck with a wink and a smile.  Lucy all but drools over Brent no knowing who he is and why he is actually in the building.

When I first started reading this book I was unsure as to what to expect.  I figured it would be a story about how Lucy became a porn star to A.) make money in order to survive, or B.) found a way to being a "star".   Well, trust me when I say that is what I get for assuming, because I was t-totally wrong.

I enjoyed the way that Erika Ashby wrote the story from Lucy's point of view.  It was fun to see how she got to initially meet Brent, who she did not really know and then throughout their time "getting to know" each other.  Not only did Lucy give us insight into how she viewed herself, but she actually gives us insight into how Brent saw her.  She also continues to tell us how her job and it's current status effected how she went about interviewing the porn star for the assignment that she was given.  If you read this book with an open mind you will find it a very humorous and sexy read.  Not only do you get the hot porn start, breaking the shy girl out of her shell to say, you get to read a book where karma actually does work out the way it should.   I enjoyed the fun and interesting ways that Lucy got to find herself and how she overcame diversity in several different situations, as well as finally learning that all things happen to different people for different reasons.  Not everyone will react to situations the same, so no matter what figure out who you are and stand behind that.

Being born an "Army Brat", Erika Ashby has been residing in Oklahoma the last 10 years finally putting an end to the nomad tendencies she had grown accustomed to. She's a happily married woman who has 5 kids between her and her husband. She has an insane passion for music and embraces her Inner Groupie any chance she has. It wasn't until the age of 29 that she realized she also had a hidden passion for reading; before then she claimed to have hated it. Six months after unlocking that deep desire she never knew she held, she turned the key to another chapter of her life which has become the desire to write. And the rest is still history in the making.
