Release Date: March 14, 2018
Cover Design: Letitia Hasser / RBA Designs
Genre: Sexy Contemporary Romance Standalone


You know those love stories you read about? The ones where the heroine remains untouched, virgin-like, until she meets the man of her dreams?
The stories where she's always in the shadows, always on the outside, no one knowing her name until she meets her one and only? A shy glance across the room at her first ever college party captivates the man she'll soon fall in love with? This story isn't that. In this story, everyone who's anyone has seen the heaviness of her tits. They've all heard the soft moan she makes when a man slides inside. They've all heard her whimpers, heard her begging for more. Her name is Randi Simms. And she’s a Crowd Pleaser.




Crowd Pleaser is the only thing I've ever read by Maire James, and I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into. From the moment I read the blurb though, I knew I had to get my hands on this book. It sounded right up my alley, so I crossed my fingers and hoped that it would meet my expectations. Thankfully, it did!

I love to read romance novels that are a little something different, and to me, that's exactly what this was. Randi, the heroine of the story, is a porn star. She makes money fucking other porn stars at frat parties, and the company she works for films it to put up on their website. One day, she goes to "work" and winds up having sex with the wrong guy. Randi doesn't realize it until after it's done, and her boss tells her if she doesn't get her mystery man to sign a consent form, she's fired.

Jake is the lucky frat guy Randi mistakenly had sex with at the party. He's a manwhore and senator's son that hates his father and everything he stands for. When a video of him having sex with Randi surfaces on the internet, his father immediately begins to try to find a way to spin it so that the public believes he was drugged. He even goes so far as to suggest they have Randi arrested. Furious, Jake let's his dad know he isn't having any of it. In fact, the world should get used to seeing his dick, because he's becoming a porn star.

That's about all I'm going to say about the plot. This book is pretty short coming in under 200 pages. Therefore, to avoid giving away too much about the story, I'm going to keep this short and sweet. 

Crowd Pleaser is entertaining, original, and most of all, HOT! I didn't want to put it down once I start reading it. I mean, fucking in public in chapter one?! Was this book written just for me? LOL!

The story is on the lighter side, but you won't find any complaints here. It's exactly what I needed after all of the emotional books I've been reading lately. The back and forth seemed a little out of hand at times, but who really knows how to navigate feelings and relationships when you're fucking each other for money. 🤷 

If you're looking for a shorter read with scorching sex and a unique romance, this one's for you!
