REVIEW – EXRATED by Stevie J Cole



Tyler Westbrook, better known as Johnny Depth, is taking the adult film industry by storm. With his playboy looks, it’s no surprise a few coworkers have attempted to take things off set and into the bedroom, but Tyler refuses to blur the lines between work and play…until the new assistant to the director walks in.

Jemma Morgan was recently fired from a lead role on a kid’s TV show that was supposed to be her big break. Unable to get another acting gig, she’s accepted a job in an industry she never expected to be a part of. Although she anticipates being shocked her first few days on set, nothing could prepare her for the moment she’s asked to hold the reflector as her ex-boyfriend plows through a woman like a Kansas cornfield.

In a world of butt-plugs, lube, and fake moans, is there a place for a second chance? Exes and some serious ohs…the term ex-rated just took on a whole new meaning.

When Tyler kisses me, I swear it’s as though the boundaries between our bodies melt away, and we become one person. It’s always been like that, and only with him. My very soul bleeds into his with this kiss, my body betrays me because as much as I want to say I don’t want him, he’s right. It’s a damn lie.


I don’t know why but every time I hear of a romance with a porn star, my interest is piqued! This is the first one I’ve read where the tropes are friends to lovers and second chance romance Two of my all-time favorites!!

Tyler Westbrook once had a very bright future ahead of him. He had a full scholarship to NYU with plans in majoring in Law. But when Tyler moves to New York, he ends up partying too hard and loses his scholarship. Now he’s living in Los Angeles and is desperate to find a job that pays well. He’s been stripping at Male Revue and a customer, who happens to be a porn star, suggests that he meets up with her producer. Tyler ends up interviewing with the producer and lands the job. He never thought in a million years that his life would end up this way. He’s not exactly proud of what he’s become.


Jemma is an actress on a popular children’s tv show. A sex video of her and her ex-boyfriend, who is a famous rock star, ends up going viral, which also results in getting her fired. She’s desperate to find a new job but the stigma from that sex video follows her everywhere and roles become scarce for Jemma. She ends up interviewing for a job as a personal assistant for a very popular Porn Producer. He also happens to be Tyler’s boss. Coincidentally, Tyler and Jemma were childhood friends who became so much more during high school. They were each others first everything.

The two actually cross paths at a nightclub first and instant chemistry ignites. After getting totally plastered, Jemma goes back to Tyler’s place and these two have the HOTTEST time between the sheets ever!! But the next morning Jemma runs off and plans on never seeing Tyler again since he broke her heart into pieces all those years ago when he went off to college and stopped all communication with her. She’s in for a rude awakening when on her first day at work she gets to witness Tyler in action. It throws her for a loop but also enrages her because he failed to tell her that he was a porn star.


Tyler and Jemma are still very much in love with each other but how can they pick up where they left off when Tyler is a porn star and doesn’t plan on quitting anytime soon? Can Jemma overlook the fact that Tyler will be having sex with many other women while being in a committed relationship with her??

I really enjoyed this one, except for the unexpected MM scene that got thrown in there. MM is not my cuppa at all so I cringed a little when that bit crept into the story. It’s really a short blip, but still I could have done without it. I will say there is a funny scene towards the end having to do with MM that I did enjoy and at the same time it made me love Tyler more. This was a really short and entertaining story. Definitely worth one-clicking.
