Action (Murmur Inc. #2) by Quinn Anderson Review

Action (Murmur Inc. #2)

Pete Griflow is the last person anyone would suspect of being a porn star. He’s quiet, gawky, and can’t even talk to guys without turning red. But on camera, he’s a different person. In the porn world, he’s Jaden Prime, a coquettish power bottom who’s been tantalizing fans for over a year now.

Pete is in a rut, though, and he knows it. And what’s worse, his boss knows it. If he can’t reignite his passion for the biz, he’s going to have trouble paying his none-too-cheap college tuition.

When Pete is given the opportunity to star in a huge summer production, sparks fly between him and his costar, Kyle Darko. Kyle is Pete’s opposite: he’s daring, achingly sexy, and in love with the sex industry. Their chemistry is palpable on and off screen, but dating on a porn set is tricky. Even pros struggle to separate fantasy from reality, especially with a script dictating their seduction. But what’s building between them can’t be ignored, and it’s so much more than getting some “action.”


I really enjoyed this book. I want to make that clear… right from the start. Just like the first book in this series. I absolutely loved the characters in this book. Pete and Drake aka Evan had this out of this world chemistry! You could totally feel it coming out of the pages of this book!

But, I did have an issues with this book. And it’s one of my pet peeves in books. Internal dialogue.
There was a lot of internal dialogue going on in this book. I felt the beginning of this book Pete was a lot in his head. Too much at times. I needed more character interaction and less full on conversations with themselves. I would say this was mostly in the beginning of the book.
I started to skim over some of it. It was just so long winded.

Once Pete and Evan started to film together and just interact more. It kind of tappers down. And you totally get sucked into their worlds.
The author did a fantastic job with Pete’s and Evan’s characters. You could feel the sexual attraction Evan and Pete had for each other. It was like they were in this fog. They couldn’t see anything else that was in front of them… but each other.

And you feel everything. All those feeling you get when you first meet somebody. The honeymoon faze of a new relationship. I’m always iffy about love at first sight books. But I felt it worked in this book! Pete had this boyish innocence to him while Evan had the bad boy charm to him. It worked!

I wasn’t really a fan of Colette. I felt she was a little bit too much into Pete’s business. Making him feel like he had to hide his feeling for Evan or else. She just aggravated me. lol
And I also felt like Pete should’ve told his mom about everything at a different time. I wasn’t feeling the whole setting of that whole talk.

Overall… this was a good read!!
I can’t wait for the next book in this series!
