The idea of stepping into a characters mind, whether it be a “Master” or a “Porn Star” is just phenomenal to me. I loved the character of Rick Cassidy right from the start and the observations that Connie makes about him, I could easily see throughout because the author spares no expense in giving you a bird’s eye view into his mind.
Much like in previous books by the author, the lead character says a lot of different things throughout that spoke to me. Observations he made about the industry he works in, the people he knows, the world around him and it felt real and it was very entertaining.
The ending felt more abrupt than final, but I definitely liked the lead in to it. The reason behind everything from Connie’s perspective (not her POV but her reasoning for the way she is). It shed a great deal of light on why she feels and reacts the way she does throughout the book, which by the time it happened I was more than ready for as I wasn’t really feeling much for that particular character.
I’ve said this in a review before but I will say it again. I will not hesitate to read more from this author. His style, his characters and the world that he wraps it all up in, is brilliant. This is a must read for any Jason Luke fan, but also for anyone looking for something that stands out from the rest and is different, but in a really good way.
Interview with a Porn Star is quite unique. Although it is Jason's second 'interview' book, it is clearly different from Interview with a Master. In this book, there is transparency into the mind (and sometimes the soul) of Rick Cassidy, the emotionally burned-out porn star/film producer, that for me made him immediately likable despite the fact he has had sex with over a thousand women during the course of his career. Certainly not an accomplishment that would endear Rick to many women outside of the industry. However, Connie Wright, the ever cynical interviewer looks beyond the professional side of Rick, and sees the caring, non exploitive man that he is. Her struggle is to stay neutral and present an unbiased interview when she clearly detests the industry for reasons later revealed. The opposing forces in this story seem almost as simple as good vs. evil, but of course Mr. Luke makes them far more complex. So, if it's a story with depth and fascinating characters you want, this will be an excellent read for you. If you're looking for off-the-charts hot, steamy sex, you will not be disappointed! I highly recommend this book and look forward to Jason Luke's future books!!
Side Note: So let me start by saying this. I had never read a book by Jason Luke before this point. All I had known, was a bunch of hype stories and his fans are die hard for his work, with due cause it turns out! This book was jaw dropping amazing to me. It was more than your typical romance, it was romance meets a literary feel, which is just a stroke of genius. When dealing with the porn world and discussions of it, it felt fake and staged like it should and when dealing with real emotions, the scenes felt raw and real. He did a fantastic job mirroring his writing to match the emotions you should be feeling, and when you should be feeling them, and how. It has been awhile since I had a book knock me on my ass and just stand back and realize all the different literary tricks that were pulled and the enjoyment I got from them. This was well crafted. And easy to enjoy. I’m still slightly gasping in admiration. Well done.
