All About the D by Lex Martin and Leslie McAdam

A sexy new romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Lex Martin and bestselling author Leslie McAdam…

I'm known for being formal. Meticulous. Professional.

So you’d never suspect I spend my nights photographing my impressive junk for a NSFW blog. Don’t roll your eyes. I’m not bragging. I have millions of followers who’ll tell you they live for my posts.

I’m like a superhero, saving humanity one dick pic at a time.

Except leading a double life means I need someone to help me protect my anonymity, so that no one, especially my family, ever discovers my online celebrity.

When I call one of the most respected law firms in town, I expect quality legal advice and confidentiality. Not a sinfully sexy attorney whose dangerous curves and soul-piercing gray eyes make me want to personally demonstrate my particular skill set.

I shouldn’t be tempted.

Especially when she knows all of my best-kept secrets. But everyone has a breaking point. And I’ve met mine.

3 Oh My Stars
I read anything by Lex Martin and I’m always up for a new author.  I read Lex Martin books without reading the blurb, I love reading books blindly. For this one, I HIGHLY recommend you read the blurb prior to reading the book. All About the D is a comical, light-hearted read with an over-the-top storyline.

I’m not a big fan of light-hearted books, but I do read them. The book starts off slow and it took me a good 30% before I got into it. Once I got past that point I was really into the book. Joshua Cartwright is a part of a highly prominent family. He also has an alter ego (this is how I would describe him). He has a taboo blog that he keeps on the down low.

I found it a bit hard to get past the whole plot of the book. Mainly, what Joshua does on the side. Yes, his blog was hard for me to get past! It seriously was the whole point of the book. I just couldn’t picture ANY person with his background having that kind of blog. I think I may have been reading too much into it though. I also thought all the Photoshop stuff he does was kind of silly (but I digress).

Josh needs a lawyer to protect his identity and Evie is the person to help him, the only thing is, he is really attracted to Evie. I really didn’t understand this part of the book either. I didn’t understand why Josh couldn’t use an alias under legal documents. I couldn’t understand why he couldn’t trust lawyers. I mean, Hollywood stars get plastic surgery but we never know because of NDA’s. It just didn’t make sense to me. I know this is a small fraction part of the book, but it really got under my skin.

The storyline between Josh and Evie is forbidden love. He likes her, but she’s his lawyer and so it makes things complicated. This is where the angst level is increased. I’m also not into angst so this part made my heart beat.

Evie was a frustrating character for me. I didn’t agree with some of her actions and I think she created more problems. It also added tension to the book, so there you go.

Overall, All About the D is an entertaining book. It’s very meaty and has a lot of good parts. I like the way it was written, I think I just had issues with things that didn’t really need to be issues in the first place, but my brain wouldn’t shut it off!

Regardless, a lot of people loved this book. I think it’s because it’s just overall funny and cute.

Lex writes contemporary romance, the sexy kind with lotsa angst, a whole lotta kissing, and the hot happily ever afters. When she's not writing, she lives a parallel life as an English teacher.

She loves printing black and white photos, listening to music on vinyl, and getting lost in a great book. Bitten by wanderlust, she's  lived all over the country but currently resides in the City of Angels with her husband and twin daughters.

Leslie McAdam is a California girl who loves romance, Little Dude, and well-defined abs. She lives in a drafty old farmhouse on a small orange tree farm in Southern California with her husband and two small children. Leslie always encourages her kids to be themselves - even if it means letting her daughter wear leopard print from head to toe. An avid reader from a young age, she will always trade watching TV for reading a book, unless it's Top Gear. Or football. Leslie is employed by day but spends her nights writing about the men you fantasize about. She's unapologetically sarcastic and notoriously terrible at comma placement.

Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all things. When she's not in the writing cave you'll find her fangirling over Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of outdoors on canvas.
