 *I received this book for free in exchange for a fair and honest review

Alexxxa is written by D. T. Dyllin and features a woman named Alexa James.  As the name easily slides off the tongue it is easy to believe that it is the name of a porn star.
Alexa James is a porn star that has been in the industry for many years and is taking a break as she is starting to feel burnt out from the one thing that she loves and feels most fulfilled by.  Finishing her last shot before taking her vacation she encounter David Jonez, a man who wants to follow her with his crew to do a documentary inside of the Porn Industry.

While on vacation Alexa finds herself questioning everything she knows about herself and her life, as she contemplates her future.  Alexa's character displays many stereotypical "porn star" attributes, in her self confidence and insecurity, yes she is so much more than that.

 David has had a crush on Alexa since high school and has found the perfect opportunity to get close to her by using his film documentary.  Half of him hopes to rid her from his system, and the other half still remains completely infatuated with her.

Dyllin did an amazing job portraying many different aspects of the porn industry with realism and by writing a romance novel that was not your average every day read.  Although this book is erotica with some hot and heavy moments, the story had true substance and was able to leave the cheesy porno music behind.

Alexxxa is written in such a way that you will find yourself rooting for and caring for Alexa as she is trying to do what makes her happy in life and learning how to be the best version of herself.  There are many sensitive issues within this book, and Dyllin does a superb job of speaking up for the rights of women in the porn industry on multiple occasions.

I love the way that Alexxxa is written from the vastly different perspectives of Alexa and David as the story is told.  It gives a wonderful representation of the entirety of what is going on with a wider angle of view.  Dyllin's characters are easy to connect with and described in a way that you can see them come to life before your eyes.

Alexxxa receives a deserving 5/5 stars.  It was a fun and entertaining read.  It had it's hot moments, and also took a realistic approach on the feelings in love, even if some of it felt rushed.  In way the rushing was fitting given the character of Alexa who approaches issues in an all or nothing fashion.  The book did leave me with one major question in regards to Alexa's ex, but otherwise I felt that it had suitable closure.  This book is great for anyone into romance, feminism, erotica, fiction, woman empowering, porn, etc.  If you are shy about adult themes or porn, don't let it shy you away from a story worth the read; that is just one piece of the puzzle.
