I am the Porn Prince.

Ada Frost
Releasing Aug 29th, 2016

This is my world, my kingdom. I sit on the throne and control the empire I created.

My skill? Providing illicit pleasure to thousands. If there is a fantasy to fulfil, my company will provide it.

I am the Porn Prince.

The cold hearted producer at Stone Industries who creates the hottest porn in the business.

But every ruler has an Achilles heel, and mine is chaos.

Abigail Warner is chaos.

From the moment she entered my office my world was turned upside down. She is my passion, my fantasy and everything I never wanted in life. The chaotic infuriating mess of a woman is everything I hate and avoid.

So why can’t I stop watching her.

Why do I crave her?

One taste and I know she will destroy me.

ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

Abigail "Abby" Warner is past hope, desperate for anything that will allow her to pay back her debts and keep her mother's house. Her cousin is incredibly secretive about her job, all Abby knows is she has money and nice things, the ability to spend freely without worry. Lacey gets her an interview with her bosses for a secretarial role, but tells Abby little else. Lawson Stone and his business partner, Sam, are polar opposites, the only similarities they share how handsome they are, and their singular tastes for the new secretary. Abby finds Lawson cold, his name fitting him as he sits in his glass empire of pornography. He has other plans for her though and he's more than willing to show her just how hot her can make her.

“You’re a lovely little thing. Are we keeping her, Lawson?”

Oh. My. Lanta. I cannot explain how much I enjoyed this book. The characters, though infuriating at times, were so excellent. With a fresh story line, unique dialogue, and extensive detailing Ada Frost brings to life the successful Stone Industries and the employees within its walls. Told from the dual POVs of Abby and Lawson, this sweet and smutty novel opens the readers minds to delicious fantasies and heartfelt emotion. It's an opposites attract story with the sexy sounds of delicious bodies sliding against each other in the background. 

"Would you like to play a little game?" He opened those dark eyes and set them on me.

I was most impressed with just how well Watch Me was written, it didn't feel like it was just a raunchy erotica, especially with it centering around the pornography industry and a man who likes things a little bit out of the norm. It was sweet, cute, emotional, but also so very very sexy. Lawson is an enigma, he's written in such a way that the reader cannot mistake how different he is from everyone else we meet in the book. He's standoff-ish, cold, a man of cleanliness and precise organization. It was so easy to see how Abby, a chaotic woman with a tendency to talk too much, shook up his entire life and left an impression he didn't quite understand. Then there's Sam, holy smokes Sam, I hope that man gets his own HEA. He's the handsome man with a boy-ish charm, best friend of Lawson, and the one person he'd even think to share Abby with. Their moments together, the three sliding on one another, are downright sexy, but the story comes alive when it's just Lawson and Abby, their masks sliding off and their truths seeping out in their kisses. They are the perfect case of opposites attract, she's the noise in his silent thoughts. 

Chaos had no place in my life. But I found myself craving Miss Warner, the very definition of mayhem.

I did find that the story needed some development, particularly in the relationships between some of the secondary characters. I loved Lacey and Abby as cousins and friends, but there was some minor drama between them that fell flat for me. It felt like an extra thing the book didn't need, because the development didn't meet the rest of the novel's fleshed out story lines. Then there's some of the story line, while it reads well and wraps up at the end I could have used some of the background we get later in the book far sooner than we receive it. There's a lot of insta-lust and insta-hate that I felt could have benefited from more detail, especially if I had really understood how Lawson and Sam regard one another a little earlier in the novel. However, all of it is easily ignored once you're swept up in the story. My lust for Lawson and Sam made me wish I was Abby the entire time, lady is a lucky gal and readers are sure to enjoy the push and pull between sexual lust and the heart's true desires. 

The man was on the brink of losing that perfectly refined control. And by God did I want to destroy that self discipline and watch him tumble into the abyss with me.

There was never an opportunity to grow bored of Watch Me, between the clothed and unclothed moments, this book doesn't fall into the erotic romance slump. The smut scenes are fresh and holy heck are they the kind that you'll want to re-read over and over. Then there's the romance, the perfect kind of adult romance a contemporary reader will enjoy with the perfect mix of sexy and emotional. Watch Me by Ada Frost is, hands down, one of the best erotic romances I have read this year and I absolutely recommend it.

So a little bit about myself. I love to read, and create stories for others to enjoy. I've always been told I have a vivid imagination, I just lacked the confidence to pursue putting it onto the written page. But finally I embarked on making a single dream come true.

I love to read, and write. I only read romance, any in that genre really. But it has to have a beautiful happy ending, I know reality isn't like that, but I read to excape real life not re-live it. Reality is too broken and jaded without having to live through the trauma and angst in a book for it to end unhappily.

I live in Yorkshire, England with my family, and many pets. When I'm not writing I am a very busy mummy and wife. My family is my world, my purpose and I am proud to be a part of their lives.
