Goodreads Synopsis:

Cade’s always taken risks…

Cade takes cares of his sick younger sister by doing what he does best--cage fighting and starring in adult movies, his newest harebrained moneymaking scheme designed to pay for his sister’s growing medical bills. But when his latest gig finds him admitted to the ER sporting an erection from hell, thanks to the little pill given to him by the director, he can’t get the pretty little nurse who treated him out of his head, even though he knows she’s so far out of his league it should be illegal. 

Alexa’s always played it safe…

Tired of being pigeonholed as the sweet, innocent one, hardworking nursing student Alexa has been looking for ways to break out of her Goody Two-shoes image. When her friend suggests the outlandish idea of losing her virginity to the sexy and sure-to-be-skilled porn star, Alexa is mortified. But then when Cade refuses her proposition, she finds herself pissed off and embarrassed. When she tracks him down to give him a piece of her mind, she isn’t prepared for what she finds. Watching him care for his little sister tugs at her heart, and suddenly it’s no longer just about losing her virginity, but about helping Cade. Because Lord help her, she might actually be falling for a porn star… 

My Review:

The opening line was all it took for me to get hooked to this book!
It only contained 9 words: “Dammit. I knew a four-hour erection wasn’t normal.”
It is possibly the funniest lines I have ever read and it had me giggling right from the beginning.

Poor Cade needs to make a few quick bucks for his little sisters overgrowing medical expenses. She has spina bifida and they are struggling to survive. To get that quick money he decides porn is the way to go, but soon realizes his heart is not up for this difficult task. As his day at the movie set starts to go downhill he soon ends up at the ER with a four hour long erection. There he meets a student nurse, Alexa who can't help, but blush at his situation. 

Alexa is from a totally different world than Cade-- rich lifestyle, country clubs, but there is a definite spark between the two characters. What I liked about this book was how it captured my attention. However, the downfall began when things between the two characters heated up and life got in the way. They both fell for each other and eventually had to stay away for their own good. What I didn't like was the fact that things were just annoying. I mean if they both like each other why let life get in the way. I guess I had difficulty accepting the fact that they both didn't try enough on their ends. Yeh, the story picks up pace and the love starts to deepen, but somewhere in the middle I started to loose interest. Overall, a quick and easy read where a porn star meets a virgin.
