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?
** 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!

The title was the first thing that caught my attention when I saw this book, so I read the synopsis and had added it to my TBR list, so I was incredibly excited when I got the chance to read and review it. I wasn’t sure what it was going to be like. I have read books across all sorts of genres, and I knew this one was going to be different. Kirsty Dallas did not disappoint me….I LOVED THIS BOOK!
I will just give you the gist of the story; I don’t like spoilers. Decker is a successful adult movie actor until he starts having problems performing. He tries anything to help remedy his ailment, but nothing really seems to help until SHE enters his life. SHE is a red-headed Texas spitfire, Andi, a childhood acquaintance who is moving to New York to open a book store. He has agreed to pick her up from the airport as a favor to his best friend. To Decker’s surprise, she isn’t the bookworm he remembers, she’s all grown up, and she seems to have the cure for his problem. That is evident every time he is around her. There is a very evident attraction between the two of them, and they settle into a friendship fraught with combustible sexual tension. Can they be more than friends? How do you tell someone you might want to date that you have sex with women for money? You have to read the book to find out!!!!!
The book had me hooked from the first page. It’s different than what I have been reading lately. I was expecting it to be pretty serious because of the subject matter, and while it does give you an inside look at the adult industry and some of the people involved, it was done in a great way….lots of humor. There were so many times I caught myself laughing out loud, the trip to the day spa being one of my favorite. Yet, there were some serious issues, trust and betrayal. However my favorite aspect of the book were the characters. They were all memorable, Andi’s neighbors, Casey and Lionel and Decker’s family. Of course, Decker and Andi were my favorites. Decker is used to getting any woman he wants until our snarky and sarcastic, Andi, comes along. The dialogue between the two really did great things for the pacing of the book. Reading the synopsis, you would think it was sex, sex, and more sex throughout the book, and yes, there was some hot sex going on, but there was a great deal about friendship, love, loyalty, and what it means to be family. It was a perfect mixture of everything.
If you are in the mood to read a romance that is a bit different but filled with humor and a great cast of characters, you really should give this one a try! It will lighten your mood and make you believe in love again. This is the first book I have read by Kirsty Dallas, but it certainly won’t be my last. I hope she writes about some other characters from the book. I think they would be as memorable as Decker and Andi.
