"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

What shone in this book is the chemistry between Josh and Mike. I may have been at times fairly "meh" about the characters individually, but the chemistry between them was written so incredibly well. Their scenes together jumped off the page. The relationship building here is slow, which juxtaposed nicely with the way the physical aspect of their - acquaintanceship - ratcheted up immediately. There is no insta-love here (insta-lust, yes, but oh is it done well), and the tension between the guys doesn't get resolved until the very end of the story, and I loved that. I can't say this book had UST, but maybe it had unresolved romantic tension? URT? That sounds gross.
There were a few things I rolled my eyes at - an STI scare and the way Mike and Josh get to know each other (super vague but I'm trying not to spoil!) - as they happened, but by the end I liked the way those things were handled and treated by Mike and Josh as well as supporting characters. I think what pulled this down from a higher rating for me is the wrap-up/telling-by-dialogue at the end. I hate when explanations of story, character thoughts, etc. are given to the reader in big chunks of obvious dialogue. It comes across as a bit... lazy? Maybe? Like, there's a lot to wrap-up here but rather than having another chapter and showing these things organically, there's just a couple pages of dialogue so we can hurry up and get to the end. I'd much rather the organic version.
However, the witty writing and snappy dialogue keeps this story going and I didn't want to put this book down once. I've since gone back and read Hotline, the first Murmur, Inc. story (psst: I liked Cam Boy much better) and have the second, Action, on my TBR. Quinn Anderson continues to become one of my go-to authors for fun, quick reads that leave me smiling.
Josh Clemmons is young and a bit uncertain about what he wants to be when he grows up. Being poor and tired of struggling to make ends meet has Josh looking for a career that will make him rich and when his porn obsession leads to an unexpected audition he jumps at the chance to be a star. While his audition doesn’t go quite as he planned it’s the connection he feels for a veteran actor that really changes his life. Real life issues soon war with the hearts and flowers of romance in a journey that’s sometimes frustrating but always realistic as I rooted for them every step of the way. Josh is larger than life, a bundle of energy and poor decisions, but I was still utterly charmed by him. He was like a puppy at times, eager to please and quick to be hurt by criticism. He was quick to jump, allowed himself to act before he thought, but when it comes to feelings and honesty he wears his heart on his sleeve. Though Josh’s life has been tough and he’s gotten a few bruises along the way he still picks himself up and rolls with the punches which made me like him all the more.
Mike Harwood had an equally tough upbringing because of his looks and his bisexuality, but with his success in the adult entertainment world he’s the one now laughing all the way to the bank. It’s been three years of making a name for himself, three years of going through the motions like a pro, but lately it’s all starting to feel fake. He’s become jaded, frustrated, and is also looking towards a life away from the business. The moment he meets Josh though his life changes irrevocably as he becomes a mentor...and eventually more. Helping Josh becomes his mission, feeding off his energy becomes his addiction, in a relationship that takes a unique path to HEA. Mike’s a bit cold when readers first meet him, his annoyance on full display. The moment he meets Josh though a softer side emerges, a more protective side that has him making decisions he never thought he’d make before. Being with Josh made Mike more personable, more charming, and by the turn of the final page I couldn’t picture them with anyone else.
This was an entertaining story set in the fascinating world of adult entertainment. Ms. Anderson vividly depicted this sensual world with all its good and bad realities, nothing was sugarcoated, and I became quickly immersed in the lives of this unlikely little family. Though I liked Josh there were times that his melodramatic ways got a bit annoying. His naivete was also frustrating and had me constantly worrying for his safety as he first entered the adult entertainment world. Mike’s protective ways were much appreciated and a solid foundation for their burgeoning relationship. There was a lot of sensuality surrounding this story but not as many actual encounters as you’d think considering the setting. On a whole there’s a nice balance of sexiness and sweet romance that allows Josh and Mike to get to know each other after Josh’s initial audition, allows them to create a romance worth rooting for. Ultimately the Murmur Inc series is immensely likable with a unique setting and colorful characters that has me counting down the days until the next installment hits bookshelves.
