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.

— 4,5 stars —


“Exrated” is the story of Tyler and Jemma. They have grown up together, had their firsts with each other and once even loved each other dearly. But when Tyler made a big mistake, they lost it all. Until they meet again – he as the new rising porn-star, literally in action, and her as the boss’ new PA. Is there maybe a second chance for them, despite his job to have sex with other women and hers to help getting it on camera?

This was my first book by Stevie J. Cole and I only wanted to read it because of the porn-star aspect, you don’t get that very often. But I have to say, that my expectations have been exceled. This story had humor, angst, emotions and hotness. The humor really was amazing, most of all their antics to get a rise out of each other made me laugh out loud. The only thing that was a bit of a bummer for me, was that I wasn’t feeling their love completely, thus the ending felt a bit rushed.

For everyone who is thinking about reading “Exrated” but is worried about the cheating part, it is definitely debatable if what went down in this book really can be titled cheating. For me personally, it wasn’t – but I guess, for some the idea of seeing someone they love having sex with other people, even if you’re not in a relationship with them, is titled a betrayal already. So, I’d advise, that you’d better be able to keep an open mind in this regard to enjoy Tyler and Jemma’s story completely.

And for everyone, who is worried, that the sexual aspect is smothering the emotional one, I can definitely say, that IMO there wasn’t too much sex. It balanced the story pretty good and wasn’t over the top detailed – but hot nevertheless.

All in all, I rate “Exrated” with 4,5 stars and can recommend it to everyone, who can keep and open mind and who is, of course, over 18 due to the explicit sexual content and language. Standalone novel with HEA.
