Review for Quirks & Kinks by Laurel Ulin Curtis
“It’s a new show, Quirks and Kinks. We’ve already selected a male reenactment actor to be your co-host, so you're the last piece of the puzzle. There’s some seriously f@$%ed up sh*t out there that people are into, and the two of you are going to be the face of it.”
“I’m going to be the face of people’s freakish fetishes?” I asked disbelievingly.
Larry shrugged his nonchalance, shoving it directly down the throat of my panic. “Half of it.”
That conversation was the beginning of more than a show.
It was the beginning of mystery, friendship, and love, and the outcome of mixing all three together with two unsuspecting victims.
Easie Reynolds and Anderson Evans were drawn to the same, simple thing—each other.
But, sometimes, undeniable chemistry isn’t enough. After all, how easy is it to get know someone when they’re constantly pretending to be someone else?
** My 4-Star Review **
How could one not love a book about a show that showcases quirks and kinks in the bedroom? You couldn't could you? I know I can't help but to love this book!
The first part of this book is full of laughs. I mean, come on... Clown sex? Right there, alone, had me in stitches. Trust me, there is more... But really, the clown sex alone is enough to make you curious, right?
All jokes aside... This book isn't just about a television show. It's about two people, who share an undeniable attraction, who also happen to end up as co-stars on this kinky show. The plot doesn't stop there... Anderson has some secrets. Secrets that could destroy any kind of friendly or romantic relationship that could happen between he and Easie.
And Easie. What a name for a character! And trust me, there are plenty of puns hidden in this story that will make you chuckle... Or maybe my dirty mind just thought they were puns. Either way, what an inventive name!
There was a bit of a drawback in this story. The characters tend to be over-dramatic in places where it isn't warranted. They tend to be over the top over things that really aren't an issue. At times, it was hard to feel the characters.
Overall, this is a well-written book that will make you both laugh and cry. It has just enough joking around and seriousness to balance out. I recommend it, especially if you are looking for sweet and funny read.
