Lingus By Mariana ZapaMost people would describe Katherine Berger as a responsible girl with a big heart a loyal friend who takes care of those close to her and the possessor of a wicked sense of humor There was som. 5 stars When I first read the blurb for Lingus I wasn’t sure if I would like it or not so even though I had it sitting on my kindle I never took the plunge A few weeks a ago a friend told me it was her favorite Mariana Zapata book so I figured I’d give it a try I was so glad I did OMG this book was so much fun to listen to The narrator that reads Zapata’s books is truly fantastic This story was different than some of the others but no less amazing “My name is Kat Berger and I love porn” 
This story starts out at a porn convention Kat and her best friend Nikki love porn So when Nikki scores tickets to a convention of course they have to attend Kat is a sweet girl and a teacher You’d never think of her and porn in the same sentence but sometimes you can’t judge a book by it’s cover While at the convention Kat meets someone truly exceptional Kat and Tristan really hit it off from their first meet They become fast friends but there is something else there from the very start I loved this friends to lovers story It was a bit of a slow burn but much steamy than some of MZ’s others I adored both of the characters and thought the story was wonderful It kept a huge grin on my face I give this one a full 5 stars ”I'd do this all over again a hundred times as long as I met you in the end”

REVIEW Lingus By Mariana Zapata

READ Lingus By Mariana Zapata 107 ↠ Most people would describe Katherine Berger as a responsible girl with a big heart a loyal friend who takes care of those close to her and the possessor of a wicked sense of humor There was something about her that most people didn't know My name is Kat Berger and I love porn When twenty five year old Kat is dragged to aEthing about her that most people didn't know My name is Kat Berger and I love porn When twenty five year old Kat is dragged to a porn convention by her best friend she's both embarrassed and n. kind of a surprising zapata romancei have such mixed feelings about this book and i'm writing this review to try to articulate some of whywhat i likedthe premise how often do you get a porn star love interest i've read my fair share of romance and never seen that done before i also liked that there were both male and female porn stars in the story so you could see maybe a little diversity of experiencethis wasn't wildly slow burn if you've read zapata you know how painfully slow the romance is and sometimes that works and sometimes it's irritating and a lot of her recent books have been IRRITATINGLY slow burn this one maybe by virtue of it being one of her first books is pretty perfectly paced you get needed tension but not so much that you want to rip your hair outwhat i didn't likei was on the fence the whole time i was reading about my feelings toward our heroine she enjoyed porn and she supported her friend Zoe who does porn but she wasn't supportive of her male friendfuture boyfriend doing porn she also had a lot of internalized misogyny and a lot of her self talk was her saying things like why am i being such a whore etc and it was weird i get people are complex i understand that feelings around sexuality are complex and i get that you can enjoy porn and also not want to date someone who has sex with other peoplebut kat was just pretty immature in her handling of her feelings and it was kind of annoying to read aboutand on top of that i'm not sure i ultimately cared about the relationship in this story i adored tristan and thought he was charming but since i didn't love kat i kind of didn't care about them getting together also think that the lack of plot sort of hindered this in a lot of the books zapata writes one or both of the characters has some shit going on whether family issues or career and here it was like kat trying to convince tristan to uit his jobanyway this wasn't horrible but it isn't a favorite

Ervous The last thing she ever expected was to meet someone who makes her laugh like no other This is a story about acceptance and friendship and a love born out of the most unexpected of place. Find all of my reviews at “You need some cock in your life and he knows what he’s doing” Mariana Zapata is an author who has popped up on my feed every now and again ever since I joined GR Unfortunately the porny librarian has not yet stocked any of her titles When I saw this one shining like a beacon over on for a measly buck I one clicked that sumbitch lickity split The other morning I started reading it while waiting for my morning fix to come out of the fancy barista coffee maker when I was startled by one of the senior partners asking what was the book of the day My reaction was exactly what you would expect it to be Thank Jeebus he was classy enough to leave me with my smut and a response of “nevermind” What can I say A girl has to mix things up every once in a while The story here is about Kat and Tristan two strangers who have uite the meet cute at a porn convention While waiting on her bestie to get the porn star of her dream’s autograph Kat’s undies start creeping so she backs herself into a nearby table in order to take care of the problem Now I ain’t sayin’ she’s a gold digger but Tristan just so happens to be seated at said table and makes his presence known After recovering from their awkward meetcute Tristan and Kat run into each other a few times over the course of the day and then Kat discovers Tristan’s alter ego – a porn star known as “Robby Lingus” Tristan acknowledges he’s not really interested in a girlfriend and Kat acknowledges she’s uncomfortable dating a dude who bangs chicks for a living as we readers embark on a “friends to lovers” tropeAs with all porny selections there’s a bit of reality that has to be left at the door This go around our leading male is a porn star by weekendwhenever he gets hired for a gig and an internlaw student by day Now if you’ve ever worked in a law firm you are fully aware that the background check they do on you before you are officially hired will dig up any and everything you’ve ever done in your life up to and including that one time when you farted in a crowded elevator totally a friend of mine – not me So obviously your initial reaction will be But you’ve gotta figure out how to just go with itThings that worked for me with Lingus was that it was humorous and that I’ve developed uite the obsession with a certain than likely sociopath this summer while watching Big Brother with my family So even though the description of Tristan didn’t match that of Cody my perverted brain made it happen anyway That pretty much amounted to my internal voice screaming Which leads to the problems These two did not get together until the EIGHTY NINE PERCENT MARK That’s a lotta blue balls I’m sure some will disagree but I do not pick up porn when I’m looking for a “good story” That’s always a plus but at some point I want to get the show on the road I don’t want to spend nearly 500 pages waiting on some penetration FFS All that makes me do is start focusing on things that shouldn’t even be a blip on my radar Things like how many times these two “snorted” while laughing In case you were wondering – there were NINETY SEVEN references to snort laughing Good thing I didn’t take a shot every time they did it 35 Stars for being cute with enjoyable characters but rounded down due to the aforementioned issuesORIGINAL “REVIEW”Why yes I absolutely did just one click this as soon as I saw the title
