Mature Content
By Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell
Cyberlove Series
Book 4





Blurb

My life plan is to be brutally honest all the way to the bank. Don't believe me? I run a popular YouTube channel called TrashyZane, and my claim to fame is oversharing about every aspect of my personal life. Sometimes while tipsy. Not everyone loves my style, but I have a long history of icing out people who can't handle me. I have no time for judgmental foolishness.
Except, apparently, when it comes to Beau Starr. His channel is the polar opposite of mine, and so is he. Wholesome, inspirational, and clean-cut. Everything about him should turn me off, but when we hook up following a confrontation at a convention, my world flips upside down. Not only does Beau Starr turn me on, he uses the exact combination of dirty talk and roughness needed to turn me out.
But we still hate each other. I think.





REVIEW

5 STARS!!!

What would it be like to kiss Zane without the hang-up of sex? Just a press of the lips, a brief taste. Did he kiss slow? Fast?
My God, am I the only one that always feels thirsty right after finishing one of Santino and Megan's books?! I swear, that's the only time this happens to me! I can't help wanting more. Not fair, guys! I was really hoping they'd write Beau and Zane's story and what do you know, they did. And I cannot begin to tell you how much I loved Mature Content. I got all sorts of feelings reading it. I laughed, I got sad, I was inspired, and not to state the obvious, but you can't read a book of theirs and not get turned on. I mean, let's be real here. And, of course, what I always like about Santino and Megan's books, is that they don't hold back. The interaction between the characters is so realistic and raw, I always get chills.

“I'll show you there’s a reason I don’t blast my sex life all over YouTube.”

Now, if you've read the previous books in the series, then you're somewhat familiar with Beau and Zane's heated, contemptuous yet brief encounters. But, I think we all saw it coming from the beginning, right?! I, at least, suspected it. Okay, it was more like I was rooting for them. What better foundation for a story that a hate-love one. And with Beau and Zane we see that and more. We get to see both of them struggle with who they are and who they should be to the world, we see them go through a row of emotions through out the whole book and how they unexpectendly end up playing a big part in each others live's. Also, we get a couple Jesse-Ian scenes which I adored. And a glimpse of other youtubers, one of which I'm hoping will get his own book.

He tasted like alcohol, pop rocks, and bad decisions.

Mature Content is, similarly to the previous books in the series, very eye-opening. The authors try to tell us in their own words that every single one of us, despite our differences and preferences, we all want to feel secure and loved arourd people we care about and to feel free to express ourselves without even a notch of hesitancy regarding how we'll be perceived. And that's what makes me keep coming back for more.


I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review!!




Excerpt

“Look, if I go clean up are you going to run out the door?”
“Would it bother you if I did?”
Beau frowned. “If I say yes, is it guaranteed you’ll do it just to bother me?” My mouth twitched. He rocked against me. “I’m serious.”
“Fine.” I sighed exaggeratedly, like he was really hassling me. “I’ll stay for a few.”
“Good.” Beau stood up, and I was suddenly eye level with his taut, sculpted stomach. “There’s another bathroom in my bedroom. And…you can grab some shorts from the chest if you don’t want to sit around naked.”
I almost asked him what the hell we were going to be sitting around doing, but kept my mouth shut. He went to the bathroom between the living room and kitchen, and I explored the rest of his apartment while slathered in jizz. It was almost as nice as mine, but nowhere near as artsy. My grandmother had helped me furnish it after shopping at thrift stores and refinishing furniture, but Beau’s apartment was kind of like a showroom. Eerily perfect.
Either way, his bathroom was on point with the lighting and shower, so I jumped in quickly after tying my hair in a knot. I rinsed off, wrapped myself in a super-plush towel, and then snagged a pair of cut off shorts and a T-shirt that had his fucking face on it, which was too funny to not wear.
I waltzed out in my new outfit and found him on the phone with…a menu in his hand. Freezing, I fucked up my entrance and gaped when he waved it in my face.
“Do you like Mediterranean food?”
“Uh. What?”
Beau looked at me like I was an idiot. “Zane. Tell me what you want to eat.”
“Oh. Um. I don’t know. I don’t not like any foods.”
He rolled his eyes and rattled off enough food to feed an entire family. When it was done, and he told them to charge his account, he pointed at the shirt I’d procured.
“Just so you know, I didn’t have that made.”
“Uh-huh. But before I mock you relentlessly, why are you ordering food? Like, just because you’re trying to make up for being a dick doesn’t mean—”
Beau grabbed the front of the shirt and a ripping sound filled the room. He didn’t even pause. Just jerked me against him and kissed me so hard I lost my train of thought. Fuck, I lost my sense of self. Fell headfirst into the intensity of his kiss and then wrapped my arms around his neck because… I really could not get enough.
His soft lips were perfect, his tongue lashing at mine with such finesse my dick started to swell again. Especially when he tangled his hand in my hair and tugged just hard enough to make my knees weaken.
“Fuck me before the food gets here,” I blurted.
Beau pressed our foreheads together, panting against my face. “We just washed up. And I want to talk to you.”
“We can talk later.” Fuck, was I whining? I was whining. “Please, Beau?”
He squeezed his eyes shut, muttered a very clear fuck it, and then backed me into his bedroom. We were on his bed, clothes discarded, so fast my head was spinning with delight. How Beau Starr was the best kisser I’d ever been with was a mystery, but, damn, the guy’s tongue was magic.
