It takes plenty of the so called glitz and glamour off the life of a porn "star" and the industry. The characters were realistic as well as the story line! Kudos to the author.
Actual 4.5 Star Review!!! Saving Liam by D.P. Denman! Eighteen year old Liam needs to do whatever he can to survive and for him that means being a gay porn star but he hates this job! Liam is not the famous porn star but a prisoner to the man who saved him from the streets of Vancouver. Justin has had a long-time crush on Liam, he is very naive to what Liam does for a living. He minds his own business in regards to Liam's tumultuous relationship with Cord his porn producer boyfriend until one when the drunken truth comes out. Now that Liam's boyfriend realizes that rent boys make much more money than porn stars, is when Liam's life takes the worst turn possible. Now it's up to Justin to rescue him from a very dangerous situation. I really enjoyed learning about the real world of the gay porn industry as it's not all glamorous and fun. The author takes us on a journey into the very realistic world, her very detailed knowledge of this world was refreshing to read as she did her research and she got it spot on. The characters that she created and developed along the story was simply brilliant and so well written. My only issue is that more information on the background of Liam and Justin would have been great but it doesn't hurt the book by any means. Justin, the gaming addict living across from Liam and Cord gives him an escape playing videos games to avoid the true horrors of his life with Cord, the controlling and exploitive gay porn producer. One night after a very bad situation, Liam gets drunk and he confides his total life of destruction with Justin. Now here is where the story gets really juicy when something happens to Liam at the hotel where Justin works. This scene was so emotional to read as it shows the complete compassion that Justin shows to Liam for everything he has gone through. I hope the author continues the story of Liam and Justin to show the next stages of their relationship. This was a good story filled with the porn industry knowledge, caring, love, despair, pain, angst and the true emotions of two beautiful men who learn to care for each other against the backdrop of the gay porn industry!!!!!

I was gifted a copy of this book for an honest review*This book broke my heart. It has some very difficult topics and is not for the faint of heart.Liam broke my heart and I wanted to reach though and steal him out of the situations that he has to go through. Justin is Liam's friend that lives across the hall. It is safe to say that Justin has had a crush on Liam for quite some time, but because he was with Cord, Justin has never acted on it. This book a must read. I don't do spoilers. So please read.
***** I was gifted a copy of this book for an honest review***** This book broke my heart. It has some very difficult topics and is not for the faint of heart. With that being said I found the book amazing. DP Denman does an amazing job at handling some very hard difficult situations that are sadly a fact of life that some people in our world do have to go through. The characters reached right through the book and stole my heart and took me on one heck of a journey. Liam broke my heart and I wanted to reach though and steal him out of the situations that he has to go through. Justin is a perfect guy. We need people like him in the world. I went through so many emotions while reading this. I felt connected to the characters. I went through all their emotions with them while reading and then some. I had to hold back tears through the majority of this story. I can not wait to read more from this author and also to find out more about these characters. I would recommend this book to anyone who can handle reading a book that is not full of sunshine and roses. This has very serious subject matter and contains things that really happen and I am glad that this author chose to bring this horrible situation to light.
