Review- Quirks and Kinks by Laurel Ulen Curtis

Title: Quirks and Kinks
Author: Laurel Ulen Curtis
Genre: Romance
My Rating- 4 Stars

Quirks & Kinks


“It’s a new show, Quirks and Kinks. We’ve already selected a male reenactment actor to be your co-host, so you're the last piece of the puzzle. There’s some seriously f@$%ed up sh*t out there that people are into, and the two of you are going to be the face of it.”

“I’m going to be the face of people’s freakish fetishes?” I asked disbelievingly.

Larry shrugged his nonchalance, shoving it directly down the throat of my panic. “Half of it.”

That conversation was the beginning of more than a show. 
It was the beginning of mystery, friendship, and love, and the outcome of mixing all three together with two unsuspecting victims.

Easie Reynolds and Anderson Evans were drawn to the same, simple thing—each other.

But, sometimes, undeniable chemistry isn’t enough. After all, how easy is it to get to know someone when they’re constantly pretending to be someone else.


My Review

Quirks and Kinks is another fun, witty and sweet read.

The story is about Easie and Anderson. Both are aspiring actors in L.A. Easie lands a part in a new show ‘Quirks and Kinks’. To celebrate she goes to a restaurant where she had an encounter with Anderson. On the first day of her new show she meets her male co-stars and it is clear that the pair don’t get on and Easie finds him creepy. Following an incident her co-star is fired and Easie needs a new one quickly. This is where Anderson enters. As the pair begin to work on the show the pair become closer whilst re-enacting all the crazy Quirks and Kinks in the show. However Anderson has some secrets he has not shared with Easie.  Can Easie overcome Anderson secrets and can Anderson bury them to be with Easie.

This story seems to have everything- humour, great witty one liners along with romance and some emotional scenes. The book is spilt into three parts. The first part is told from Easie’s POV and is full of humour and great witty lines from Easie. The second part is from Anderson’s POV and this is where the story changed slightly for me. Yes there is still lots of humour but Anderson’s POV also adds an emotional dimension to the story. The third part of the book alternates between Easie and Anderson’s POV. 

There is some great banter between Easie and Anderson and there are some laugh out loud moments. I very quickly connected with the story and the characters. The only thing for me was I thought that perhaps the author could have brought out a little more of the Quirks and Kinks stories which Easie and Anderson were re-telling. All we got were little tiny samples of the stories. There are also some great secondary characters and I would like to see more of Tammy and also Easie’s sister Ashley.

Overall another great story from author Laurel Ulen Curtis . If you’re looking for a fun, humorous, sweet read then this book is for you.
