Publisher's Summary

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.

    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.

    "Cute little addictive read"

    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 shocked, it was awesome!"

    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!)

    "SEXY, HILARIOUS, MUST READ!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    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.<br/><br/>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. <br/><br/>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.<br/><br/>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!

    "Funny romantic comedy at it's best"

    "ROTFLMFAO!"

    There are so many things I could say about this book! it was hilarious, irreverent, raunchy, sexy, naughty, hot, crazy, and I loved it! Gotta love a book with quotes like: "Was it wrong that I wanted to mount him while he was in tears?" and "I think I've loved you from the moment you called me a pussy." Did I mention irreverent? The narrator did a fabulous job, just a couple places her men's voices sounded the same. Overall a ROTFLMFAO book!

    "Weak for Zapata"

    After having read the Wall of Winnipeg, and loved it, and then Kulti, and loved it, I took a risk with this one in spite of the plot - a porn convention. Unfortunately, Lingus was everything I feared - weak writing, weak character development, immature characters, and inappropriate behaviors that smacked of high school kids.

    We have a high powered lawyer in Nicole and a writer in Kat. Both are between 25 and 29 and apparently successful. They have a friend, Zoey, in the porn business who is around the same age. In theory they all love each other as friends. Yet they call one another sluts and bitches. They grab one another's butts, tweak the tender part of "the girls" and basically disparage one another in words and deeds. This is not how adults behave with one another. At least not bright, kind and compassionate ones. So none of the girls had any credibility or depth of integrity for me. The male characters were much better written; and a lot nicer.

    The development of this group of kids, because that's all they really are, is non-existent. After the rich development and wholehearted integrity of several other Zapata protagonists in her books, these characters were disappointing. I couldn't have cared less what happened to any of them, especially Nicole who was the rudest of the bunch.

    If Zapata wants to manage a difficult topic, which pornography is, then do it with some class and style. Phallic images and sexual comments and motifs were simply unnecessary to move the plot the along. However, there was not much of a plot and the tension between Kat and Tristin was marginal at best.

    If a reader enjoys graphic rendition of sex scenes, you'll get a few more in this book than in Kulti and Wall of Winnipeg.

    Skip this one. It's drivel.

    "UGH!"

    Sometimes you just need a lighthearted, trashy romance, but this one was just torturous. Every character in this book was impeccably gorgeous. The author, through the first person thoughts, made fun of anyone who wasn't (especially if your genitals are less than perfect). The whole storyline seemed to revolve around the lead male being super gorgeous and the lead female thinking about how gorgeous he is.

    The dialog was terrible. The jokes weren't funny, but the boring characters laughed anyway... they laughed so hard they were snorting and gasping for air. They looked gorgeous while doing it.

    "Felt very uncomfortable"
    What disappointed you about Lingus?

    I loved Kulti (listened to it 4 times straight!) and I read another comment that said this was a fresher, updated version. I completely disagree. I didn't think the story was as well-developed, there wasn't as much of a reason why the two main characters liked each other. It just seemed like "oh, he's cute, I'm in love with him". One of the reasons I loved Kulti was that Sal seemed like a well-rounded character - she was feisty, had a great circle of friends and family, and was very focused on doing what it takes to be an excellent soccer player. In Lingus, it was like all the characters were just hanging out not doing much, making fart jokes. I couldn't relate and wasn't inspired at all. And I couldn't get past the main male character and other characters being porn stars. It just left a bad taste in my mouth for several days afterwards. I'm baffled about why I listened to the whole thing - I guess I liked Kulti so much that I couldn't believe I didn't like this one so much. Ugh. I'm going to listen to Kulti again...

    "love this"

    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.
