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…

Cover:  I love this cover.  Simple, sexy and perfect matches for Cade and Alexa.

I bought this for my kindle, completely on a whim after seeing it pop up on Goodreads.
I'm so glad I did.  I read through this in a couple of hours after buying it.  It's really short.
The whole concept was the ultimate opposites attract plot- pornstar & virgin nurse.  And I'm a sucker for opposites attract romances, so I was hooked.
I loved the characters.  Alexa was really sweet, but not annoyingly so.  Cade, swoon-worthy and a wonderful older brother.  His younger sister was adorable.
The chemistry between Alexa and Cade was great.  Obviously there are sexual situations that may not appeal to everyone or be suitable for younger readers, and actually, at times, it reads almost like an adult erotic novel.  
Everything was almost perfect.
The only things I would say that stopped me from giving this book 5/5 was that I felt it should have been longer.  Yes the sexual chemistry was there, but I felt there needed to be more development to make the 'love' side of it that tad more believable.
Also, it just happened to contain a personal pet-peeve of mine.  Nothing against the book at all.  I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but let's just say something happens to do with Cade's job that both Alexa and I didn't agree with.
Over all though I definitely recommend this book!  I loved it.  If you're looking for more 'New Adult' novels, this is definitely worth giving a try.
4/5 stars.
