Most people would describe Katherine Berger as a responsible girl with a big heart, a loyal friend who takes care of those close to her, and the possessor of a wicked sense of humor. There was something about her that most people didn't know.
"My name is Kat Berger, and I love porn."
When 25-year-old Kat is dragged to a porn convention by her best friend, she's both embarrassed and nervous. The last thing she ever expects is to meet someone who makes her laugh like no other. This is a story about acceptance and friendship and a love born out of the most unexpected of places.

Say something about yourself!
I wavered on getting this book even though it came highly recommended. I kept thinking to myself how far into cheesy land can a book go that opens up at a porn convention. It was either going to be really erotic with no plot, or it was going to be a total cheese fest and having me rolling my eyes....instead I got a book that was just simply awesome!
There actually wasn't any heat until about 8 hours into the book, instead you got a stream of thought Sex in the City episode for 10 hours, it was great, it was funny, it was characters I could identify with, and it was a love story of uncertainty with ZERO contrived drama.
Yes, they met at a porn convention, but this was a very well done classic rendition of girl meets boy, girl likes boy, does the boy like me like me, or just like me as a friend like me? There were zany crazy friends thrown into the mix, the gay friend who got officer spanks-a-lot for his birthday, the petite wild child friend whom the world knows as Zoe Star the Porn Star, but the main character Cat just knows as one of her best friends who farts too much!
It was cute, funny, adorable, relatable, with an inner dialogue that would make any author jealous! I want to befriend these characters and I really wish there was a part two, or a Zoe story where we could catch up with these characters again. It was a total escape from reality to read this book, and I will for sure be checking out more by this author!
Great for sale, credit, OR BUY! (Yes, I loved it that much!)
I love to multi-task whenever possible and audible allows me to keep up my voracious reading appetite while doing other things!
I have read all of Zapata's books. I didn't think she could best Kulti, but this one did. My plan now is to listen to 100 more audio books so I can forget Lingus and listen to it anew! For fans of Kulti, this book feels like a funnier, sexier reboot. It has the same premise of a friendship that is more but cannot cross over that line. This type of plot really ramps up the sexual tension...your toes begin to curl in anticipation of the moment friends finally become lovers.
Obviously, there is a lot of graphic sex talk in this book, and you must channel your inner Dr. Ruth. Leave your embarrassment at the door or keep walking.
Audible has filed this book underneath fictional humor, but don't be mistaken...it is a full-fledged romance just as every other Zapata book. With that said, this book is captial "H" HILARIOUS. I couldn't stop laughing out loud. There were even some cheesy Star Wars jokes which I recited to my kids. The geek in me definitely appreciated those. The story itself was engaging and addictive.
Finally, as for the narration, Callie Dalton, you are awesome! Five stars perfection. You brought this book to life. One of my favorite reads of 2016. Worth a credit every day of the week and twice on Sundays!
Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.
I started thinking I needed something to listen to while cleaning and found myself not being able to take my headphones out, so here I am 10 hours later having finished it.
The story line is so unique and interesting. Girl meets boy, girl finds out boy is in porn and then becomes friends with the boy. Can they become more? Add in some funny one liners and comical situations and it's a hit!
I'm very happy to add this to my audible library. Worth the credit no doubt and Callie Dalton does a great job at narration. Her male voice is excellent as well as her female voices to distinguish characters.
I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
This was a very unexpected surprise!! I was intrigued by the books description so I couldn't help myself. This is the 2nd book I've purchased by this author and was not disappointed at all. I love a great romantic comedy! This book had me laughing by the first page. Funny, sexy, entertaining!!
I was looking for something different to entertain me. This was well written, funny, very creative. Definitely more romantic than sexual. It was authentic where so many in this genre are not. I dug it! Narrator brought characters to life.
grain80 Love great romance. Especially erotica.
I really enjoyed this title. the narrator was fantastic. she seemed to enjoy the title, and brought it to life. This is a slow burn love story, with some very sexy scenes! This is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors, and now a favorite narrator as well.
this was the first book I've read from this author. I'm on the hunt for more. I loved this book! I'm tired of "deep love at first sight" books and this one was perfect! it was funny, hot, and relatable!
Both Kat and "Robby" are awkward and funny. Kat is ADD - she does or says what's on her mind and "Robby" finds that endearing. He can be himself around her without worrying about either of his persona's or facades and knows she'll accept him as is. The only problem is he doesn't let her know and it's hard for a girl to live in the friend zone. Good story - I'll listen again. The narrator did a good job on the voices and the story moved smoothly with her character interpretations
The story has a natural progression and pace.
Because it's a slow burn, when Kat & Tristan FINALLY have sex.
She has a very expressive voice, but it's still soothing and easy to listen to.
Slow Burn With the Porn Star.
Love this author's books! I was NEVER a fan of the slow burn until this author!
