A Patriotic Whore by Matthew Kadish Review:

Goodreads Book Blurb:
Blaire Reese is a party girl. She likes booze, boys, and sex, and has no idea what she wants to do with her life... until she's approached by the CIA to join an elite squad of undercover agents trained in the art of Seduction and Sexual Manipulation.

Now, she's in a world where sex is used as a tool, and people are looked at as nothing more than puppets. Project Cathouse was designed from the ground up by the CIA to teach girls like Blaire how to use their sexuality to enslave the emotions of any person they desire, and then use that person for their own agendas.

Blaire is on-board with her training until she falls in love with Drummond Scott, the top male trainee at the Cathouse. But how can she convince a man trained as the ultimate Seducer that her love is not only genuine, but that he should love her back?

When emotions are liabilities and sex is a weapon, how can Blaire protect herself from being hurt? What is left for her to trust? When you're patriotic enough to become a whore, is it still possible to ever believe in love?


Genre - Adult/Erotica/Romance


I received this eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

4 SuperWhore Stars!
Different, Delectable and Downright Daring!


The Review:
Seriously?!? You’re gonna do a reader like that?!? Gahhhh!

Well, Mr. Kadish, you got me all grossed out with the first chapter, then you got me all hooked and curious with the second, then you got me all “ok, that was some funny shit right thar” with the next few chapters, then you got me all sniffle-sniffle with the “love and womanhood is my weapon, I shall wield it wisely” thing and then you got me all hot and bothered with the multiples and major orgy fests and then you leave me hanging with that explosive (FOR REALZ!) ending?

Sadist!

SAY-DIST!!!

Ok, just wanted to cry scream foul at the cliffy and speak of my disgruntled disposition before delving into my review. Now that my sad-face is over, lets get to it!

I can honestly say, this book was unlike any I have EVAR read ya’ll! Yes, I'm using lingo from the book itself. First, don't the saying go, “dont judge a book by its cover”? Well in this case, don't judge a book by its title. Though appropriate considering the theme and what the heroine eventually calls herself, its a little off-putting, especially when you’re at work and the title pops up on your ereader (true story people!). In fact, a friend asked what I was reading and I kinda didn’t want to tell her. LOL! My cheeks turned red and I said I couldn’t remember, but it was really good and once I remembered, then I’d send her the Goodreads link. Let HER read the title and do the judging!

Oh, and the cover... super sexy! Just saying...

Anyhow, when I first started reading it, I was a little skeptical with the text based writing style and intentionally misspelled words in some places. Srsly, Rly, Lol, Lulz, Gurl, Sowwy, Durty to name just a few. Its written entirely from Blaire’s POV and its more like a recount of her time in training to be A Patriotic Whore. Along with the well put together story, Blaire expresses herself in words and slang, the way she would talk and though it took some getting used to, it was actually brilliant in hindsight. The smiley faces, all caps lettering and her Texas drawl were ridiculously funny and kept me in stitches at the most inappropriate times. I couldn’t put this book down. I’ve spent all night reading it and now I'm going to be a zombie for the rest of the day, but it was well worth it. Anything that can make me laugh as well as keep me interested and entertained.. Automatic WIN ya’ll.

This book was hilariously funny in places, intense and dramatic in others and out right mind blowing in the rest... And DURTY, Yay!

I'm not going to lie. This book is NOT for everyone. There are some pretty serious taboo things in it and you’ll probably need a strong constitution and a very open mind to read it.

This crazy, insane, hilariously fun journey has a very real and impressive story that's both compelling and eye-opening.

I enjoyed the unusual cast of characters, the in-house rivalry, the training sessions and the underlying story this book has. It’s unique, creative and brave in the sense that the author isn’t inhibited with its theme, much like his characters aren’t inhibited in their ideas and actions.

Yawn...Not Really, But Just A Little...
There were a few moments in the book when the heroine, Blaire, is going through relationship training with Mr. Lucky and sometimes that ol’ coot gets very wordy, long winded and all the exposition just seemed to bog the book down a bit. Seriously, I Nook-palmed... twice! Do you know how hard it is to get drool off Gorilla glass? Regardless, it was part of the learning process and though I think the lectures could have been culled down some, the ideas it presented were needed because these are the lessons Blaire uses in order to fulfill her role and reconcile one of the conflicts in the book.

The Wrap Up:
In conclusion, I loved it. It was well thought out, it was fun to read and it left me wanting more. That's the basics for a hit novels if you ask me. I personally can’t wait for book two.. and there better be a book two because you CAN. NOT end things like that. One minute things are all rosy and love is all happy and sweet and the next minute the militia has been called out and all hell has broken loose! So Mr. Sadist Kadish, when is the next book to be released, hu? I’m keeping my eye on you. -_-
