** Reader Warning** - This novel is NOT a dark romance. There are absolutely no whips or floggers, no matter how much Andi wants to smack Decker over the head at times. There are no BDSM slavery themes, unless you can count that Decker is a slave to Andi's hot cowboy boots and sexy Texan drawl. Decker's Wood does however feature glitter rain, manscaping, vajazzle, tequila shots, roof-top dancing and one hell of a dick trick!
Decker Steele had it made...Penthouse apartment, VIP parties, girls on tap. You see, Decker Steele is the Pornography Associations award winning, money making machine. But what does a self-confessed, pussy pounding warrior do when his prized package begins to fail? Freak the 'F' out, that's what!
Andi Jennings is the socially inept, geeky and awkward cousin of Decker's best friend. Only she's not so geeky and awkward anymore. Now she's a smokin' hot country bumpkin, with a smokey voice made for phone sex, and a pair of hot as hell cowboy boots. Everyone adores her, my porn star buddies, my mom and dad, my 'equipment'.
So, the prized package isn't so failing anymore, the catch is, it will only perform for Andi...My friend WITHOUT benefits.
What will the prince of porn do? The girl or the career?
He has one month to figure it all out.

Andi was forbidden fruit, and even if she wasn't, there was no way a pure country bumpkin like her could handle a self-confessed pussy pounding warrior like me.
Well, that was just fascinating! I loved every damn minute of this book and am suffering some insta-love for Kirsty Dallas, I admit it!! There really was a little bit of everything in here-lots of laughs, steamy hott sex, sass & foul language, the best neighbors EVER, tons of drama, a leading lady who knows how to lay out a smackdown, glitter & spandex, all wrapped up in the most unexpected romance you could imagine. I really don't think there was anything I didn't like about this book other than it ended. It was dirty and funny and perfect.
Oh, and did I mention I was completely and utterly done with sex? I was sick to death of the sight of it, the feel of it, and the smell of it; I was outsexed, done, timeout boys, Decker Steele is throwing a tantrum. I was officially putting myself out to pasture. At thirty-two-years of age, I was taking myself off the damn menu!
Decker Steele has been the 'Prince of Porn' for twelve years now. He has anything he could even want and gets paid to do what he loves-SEX! What more could he ask for? There is just one small, iddy-biddy problem...his 'prized equipment' is starting to fail him. He has literally screwed himself out. What's a porn star to do when his source of income fails to show up at the job?
Andi Jennings has just moved to New York from Texas to follow her dreams of opening a bookstore. Picking her up at the airport is her cousins best friend, Decker Steele. Andi has had a crush on Decker since she was a shy, awkward teenager, but the horny teen-aged Decker was too busy chasing every girl that crossed his path to give her the time of day. He could never see past the glasses and braces to the heart of Andi, even if she did manage to pull her nose out of her books once in awhile.
But Andi isn't the shy, awkward teenager she once was. She has blossomed into a sexy as sin, cowboy boot rocking, sultry voiced vixen who has not only brought missing vibrancy back into Decker's world, but is also the first woman in over a year to bring his 'prized equipment' back to life. Unfortunately for Decker, his best friends cousin is completely off-limits. Spending time with his new 'friend without benefits' only makes his situation worse by the day and he finds himself actually liking the girl behind the lust for more than just the sex he desperately craves. So what's an award winning porn star to do? He has one month to make a decision~the girl, or the career...
Just the thought of Andi could make me harden so fast I thought I would faint over the loss of blood in my brain. It was as if my cock had never been on vacation; as soon as it scented Andi, it would stand to attention with a big shit eating grin on its swollen head.
This book jumps back and forth between Decker & Andi's POV which really took this book to a whole new level. Being in Decker's head was...well, interesting. It was wild to watch this man experience actual emotions after years of unattached sex, he was understandably scared and confused by the feelings Andi evoked in him and it really makes you think about real live porn stars and if they suffer the same kinds of problems. This book takes you behind the scenes of porn and shines a whole new light on it. All of these characters grabbed my attention right from the beginning and refused to let go, they were all so...consuming. There were just so many layers to each of them, I felt connected to them all- some will even surprise you. I really just loved it all, seriously-no complaints and that for me is very unusual. I know this was a stand-alone novel, but I would be lying if I said I was content to leave everything as is. Yes, the ending was pretty perfect, but I would love to see more from these characters-but that's mostly just 'cause I loved them sooo much I am not ready to let go. I never expected to loved a book revolving porn stars quite this much, but I really did- this book just made them so...approachable. Kirsty Dallas rocked my world with this wicked story and has firmly landed herself on my 'one-click addiction' list.
I had only had her in my arms, in my life, for a moment, but the little piece of country had wormed her way into my heart and that is where she would stay forever, regardless of what happened next.
I grew up on the beaches of North Queensland Australia before migrating south to the iconic Gold Coast in 1995. I traded the surf and my bikini for pajama's and a computer when I embarked on writing professionally in 2012.I have two rules when writing. Rule one, "forget about ratings and awards, write simply for the love of writing". And rule two, "be brave, don't be afraid to traverse the path less traveled and don't conform." With these rules in mind, I hope my books spark a light inside your heart and leave you in a complete book frump!
