Overview

**The Murmur Inc. stories can be enjoyed in any order - jump in wherever you'd like!**

After years of making minimum wage, twenty-one-year-old Josh Clemmons may have found his salvation. Murmur Inc., a local adult entertainment company, is hosting auditions for new performers, and Josh has been invited to try out. If he can make it as a porn star, he can kiss his money troubles goodbye.

Mike Harwood is a loud-and-proud professional adult entertainer. In the past three years, he's starred in dozens of films, and he's very good at what he does. But as focused as he's been on work, he's neglected everything else, including his love life. He's so used to faking attraction, he can no longer tell when something real is staring him in the face.

Josh gets the job, but when porn fails to live up to the fantasy, he quits to do cam work instead. But he can't stop thinking about the one scene he filmed, and the captivating man he filmed it with. Their chemistry is undeniable, but Mike knows better than to mix business with pleasure. Then again, with true love on the line, this unorthodox office romance may need a second take.

Surprisingly sweet and fun for a book about porn stars. Plenty of steam and chemistry, with an unexpected helping of substance.

Quinn Anderson is a new to me author and I haven’t read the two previous novels in the series. I had no preconceived notions, except knowing books about porn stars can often be a gamble. I was pleasantly surprised by a very realistic-seeming depiction of an adult-film occupation and a focus on other, less considered pitfalls of the job. The plot itself was fairly original, avoiding many of the usual plot devices used with this theme. It’s also a character driven plot, however I was less than enamored with the characters. Josh was difficult for me to like, kind of annoyingly dense and prone to running off at the mouth. Mike is a nice guy, getting bored by his work until he’s snapped out of his ennui by the brash and naive Josh. I had a hard time seeing much about Josh to attract Mike, and couldn’t feel their chemistry, myself. Surprisingly, in a story about sex work, it’s a fairly slow burn for the couple and moderate sex scenes. Forming a connection came about in a rather unusual fashion, and aside from the awkward film debut, they don’t meet face-to-face again for weeks. It took a while but Josh’s character does improve, although it was a short period of time for him to have grown up that much. It’s all logical though, as he and Mike make changes to allow them to move forward together. There really isn’t much negative I would say about this story; it’s well written with good pacing and the positives I’ve noted. It just didn’t offer me enough in the way of emotional tension or conflict to grab my interest. It seemed a bit too bland, in spite of the few obstacles the author put in place. It was enjoyable and engaging enough to hold my interest. I would recommend it for the appeal of a fresh take on the porn star and protégé trope.

3.5 Stars--Cam Boy was a pleasant surprise by a new-to-me author. Initially it was the cover that caught my eye, but the blurb sounded fun with a different set of characters and plotlines than I’d normally read. For the most part, Cam Boy delivered what I expected. Though this is the third book in the Murmur Inc. series, it easily works as a standalone. I liked both main characters in Cam Boy. The pairing of the new-to-porn Josh with seasoned veteran Mike, though not unexpected, offered plenty of options for good banter and some humorous exchanges. Though Josh and Mike together made for a fun couple, I occasionally struggled with Josh’s characterization. Josh came across a bit immature and, while that made sense given his age, some of his naivety and actions were a bit over-the-top and pulled me out of the story. That said, I did like how Josh and Mike’s personalities and life outlooks contrasted. It gave their relationship some depth and offered plenty of areas for both characters to learn from each other and grow over the course of the book. I also enjoyed the plot and most of the conflicts, particularly the resolution in the final chapters. Although I enjoyed many elements in Cam Boy and the ending was satisfying, it felt a little too quick a wrap. I ended up wishing the couple had more time and a chance to further develop their relationship on page once they resolved the issues and decided to pursue a committed partnership. Although I didn’t get quite the gratifying ending I was hoping for, I was happy the epilogue delivered a glimpse into the future and provided a solid happy-for-now ending. Cam Boy was an easy read that offered interesting characters and conflicts to drive the plot. The quick pacing and dialogue complete with fun banter made this book hard to step away from, even though it occasionally had me rolling my eyes. I would have loved a bit more development between Josh and Mike, but I would definitely recommend this title to someone looking for a fun read that’s a bit different than many lighter romances. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*
