I guess I will do my best… Porter Hale is a badass porn star with a soft, gooey center that wants nothing more than to be a good man. He’s stuck in an industry that pays the bills but doesn’t fulfill him in any way. His dream…mainstream movies. Holly Nash is one person who can help him achieve that. Problem is, she wants nothing to do with him and if it weren’t for his brother being her friend…along with her own two best friends giving her a gentle kick in the rear, she wouldn’t give “Ryder Ruff” the time of day. Let alone her evenings. But somehow, she is manipulated into dinner…and the rest is history. In actually having a conversation with Porter, Holly realizes there is more to him than a pretty penis. He appeals to both her lady bits and her extremely cynical mind. Now, to make it work…and to find him work…that doesn’t have him buried in random fleshy women. I’d love to say that’s the end…but there is a late-to-the-party plot twist. And some serious family issues… David Michael has transitioned nicely into the contemporary genre. What one might think upon seeing the cover or even reading the synopsis of this book is that it’s straight up PORN—it’s not. There is a solid storyline that may seem slow, with that M&M crunch on the outside and soft chocolatey center inside, complete with a happily ever after…but there is a nice little twist. There is a clever set up for the next book as well, keeping you interested enough to find out what happens next. My only question is this: What happened to the over-caffeinated Jazzercise instructor? I liked her…even if she seemed a little crazy. *grins* **4 Solid Shaft, Stars**

    I was hella excited to finally get to read this book after seeing all the hype for a while about it...and Porter did not disapppoint me at all! Porter, Parker and Preston are three brothers who all "inherit" the family business and who are as different from each other as can be (with the exception of their icy blue eyes and love for the adult film industry). Porter is the older sex-god, a legend to his peers, while his younger brothers Parker (a man with a substance abuse problem) and Preston (th I was hella excited to finally get to read this book after seeing all the hype for a while about it...and Porter did not disapppoint me at all! Porter, Parker and Preston are three brothers who all "inherit" the family business and who are as different from each other as can be (with the exception of their icy blue eyes and love for the adult film industry). Porter is the older sex-god, a legend to his peers, while his younger brothers Parker (a man with a substance abuse problem) and Preston (the baby of the family and definitely the most versatile) keep him on his toes as he has become their mentor and father figure. While this book explores the relationships they have with each other as well as the ins and outs of the explicit nature of their work, it also deals with the prejudices adult film actors face in Hollywood (the difficulty to have "normal" relationships outside of work and the vulnerability of men who would seem to the outside world as having it all...success, confidence and women galore). I laughed out loud at some of the outrageous dialogue and descriptions, the over-the-top antics of Porter's love interest Holly and her band of zany co-workers, and definitely enjoyed watching the rocky courtship as Porter tries to satisfy his desire for the reluctant object of his affection. Sex was all over the place in this book...steamy and panty-melting in some scenes...downright nasty in others and yet overall told with a sense of humor and playfulness. I really enjoyed the complex characters and loved the romance aspect...but when the story took a dangerous twisty turn near the end, it was a surprise but not completely unexpected. A cliffhanger at the end leads into Parker's story which I am guessing is the next book. I can't wait for the other two boys to have their stories told! I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. ***** 5 ***** "take a plunge into the ocean with me" stars

    So, now that Porter has been out for a good 6 months, I feel like I should finally write an author review for him. Here we go: Porter is, by far, my favorite of all the books I've published so far. He's real, his friends are real, his family is real, his problems are real. When I started this series, it was intended to be a raunchy, hysterical, sex-filled steam-fest. Porter had other plans. He didn't want to be that guy and, after getting to know him, I can't really blame him.

When I started this series, it was intended to be a raunchy, hysterical, sex-filled steam-fest. Porter had other plans. He didn't want to be that guy and, after getting to know him, I can't really blame him. It's a book about a porn star and there are a whole THREE sex scenes. Holly, the peach that she is, surprised me as well. Having lived in California and done the acting thing myself, I know all about the stigmas that can follow an actor like stink on a skunk. Holly isn't exempt from that mindset. She has her assumptions about Porter and she just KNOWS she's right about him. At least until he proves her wrong. Becks and Mitch, Holly's best friends, are just as deep as the two primaries and make a FABULOUS supporting cast. They're the hysterical no-filter best friends we all wish we had. And they have their own stories to tell, so stay tuned...

    I've never before read a romance written by a man and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised.

Just saying****** Hot Damn that was good! So refreshing to read a love story written by a man. David's writing was like a drug to me.  Infectious, humorous and down right raunchy at times.  I literally could not put this book down. Porter Hale is a successful porn star aka Ryder Ruff aka bad ass. Along with his two younger brothers they are often referred to as the "Princes of Porn."  But they often refer to themselves as the "Dick Dynasty" lol.  I loved Porter's character, he came across…haha I said came across…as this strong dominant male but deep down he was a big ole softy….big softy….lol I kill me! Holly Nash, on the other hand, is a strong willed determined casting director that despises porn so when big bad Ryder Ruff spills her martini on her she is less than amused. Porter is wanting to make it up to this beautiful vixen so he invites her to dinner, which by a little help from Becks, she accepts.  Holly hasn't gotten laid in a long time.  Her vagina practically has cob webs.  She is also way out of her league when Porter starts pushing on the charm and has no idea how to handle him.  Her assistant Mitch and best friend Becks don't help out much either by constantly pressing that she see him.  And BTW OMG I LOVED Holly's assistant, Mitch.  He could be in a book all of his own. Holly's vagina finally wins and they begin a very heated and passionate romance.  But the porn industry is not happy with Porter's new girlfriend and when Holly starts getting threats, Porter is outraged and will stop at nothing to protect Holly.  The end scene was INTENSE.  I even got a little squeamish reading that part AND the epilogue geez David are you trying to kill me?? Let's just say I cannot wait to read the next book in the Dick Dynasty series. Must read you will not be disappointed. Favorite Scene: The awkward getting-caught-with-your-pants-down scene with Mitch and Becks. Favorite Quote: "Get your life together, wipe the ranch off your face, and for the love of Gaga, buy some granola bars to keep in your purse.  You're a scary woman on a good day, but you turn into some kind of angry black hole for food when you're hungry and God help anyone who gets too close." – Mitch "Holly we work in Hollywood and your schedule is relatively clear for the day. Just call in drunk." – Mitch

    My review is two-fold, which is a first for me when reviewing a novel. The first part is on the author, David Michael, himself. David is an affable and engaging individual (although I don't know him personally) and has plenty of time to interact with readers and fellow authors on the various forms of social media. To describe him as someone who is charming, would really not give him the full justice he deserves.

The first part is on the author, David Michael, himself. David is an affable and engaging individual (although I don't know him personally) and has plenty of time to interact with readers and fellow authors on the various forms of social media. To describe him as someone who is charming, would really not give him the full justice he deserves. The way I have interacted and seen him interact with other people, made me very excited to read this particular novel. Onto the novel itself... Porter, Parker & Preston are three brothers who dominate the world of the porn industry. They have all clearly made their own personal mark within this industry and this novel predominantly concentrates on the oldest of the three siblings, Porter Hale. Throughout the novel you get glimpses of what life is like for both Parker and Preston - whose stories will be revealed in the two follow-up novels. The novel is difficult to categorise into any one particular genre, as it covers romance, humour, sexiness, intrigue and drama. Porter Hale (or Ryder Ruff) is disillusioned with the porn industry, even though he has made a huge name for himself. Admirers, of both sexes, are fully aware of the name Porter Hale. Enter Holly Nash, who is a Casting Director and may be just the person Porter can use to break away from the industry he is rapidly losing interest in. Only one problem...Porter's anatomy and mind likes Holly a lot more than he cares to admit, especially as Holly loathes the porn industry. What I really enjoyed about this read, was that alternating chapters were written in the first person from both Porter's and Holly's perspectives. You got a very clear insight into what one thought about the other, with subtle crossovers in several scenes. Throw into the mix the camp, over-sexed Mitch; the foul-mouthed Becks; the bisexual but sensible Preston and the extremely troubled Parker, you have a novel that makes you laugh, gasp and turning the pages as you find yourself thoroughly engrossed in the various storylines. I am hoping this review will give David Michael and all his characters who are so wonderfully brought to life the fullest justice that they all deserve. The novel does end on a bit of tense drama - not exactly a cliff-hanger but it does make me incredibly hungry to read Parker's story, which I am hoping will not be too long before it is on my Kindle and I am absorbing myself into it word by word.

Now he wants to broach into serious acting, but can he do that with his background or is he a PR disaster waiting to happen? When he is introduced to Holly Nash – a top mainstream casting director – he sees her as his ticket out of the industry. There is only one problem….she hates porn. Holly’s attempts to keep her distance are in vain thanks to interference from her friends Becks and Mitch, combined with an inexplicable magnetic pull towards him. Over time Holly gets to see behind Porter’s media persona as he reveals himself as a charismatic, charming, sensitive and caring person that breaks the barrier she has constructed bit by bit. However not everyone is happy to see their relationship blossoming. In the beginning of the book – as you would expect given the nature of Porter’s career – there are some cheesy and cringe worthy scenes. However, for me, the beach scenes were a turning point. From there on out the story, along with the writing, only gets better and you can’t help but rooting for their relationship. Holly’s friends Becks and Mitch bring comedic moments to the book and evoked genuine laughter at their antics. This book really does cover all it’s bases: romance, hot sex, comedy, drama, a twist, suspense and a cliffhanger. A very enjoyable lighthearted and fun read. Reviewed by Books Chocolate and Wine.

Through a little intervention from her two hysterical and 'doing it out of love' besties, Mitch & Becks, and Porter's brother Preston, Holly ends up on a date with Porter, and eventually giving him a chance. It all spirals into fun and sexy from there. Who expects a love story from a porn star? If anyone can do it David can. This book will make you laugh until you cry, want to jump the nearest person from the sexy times, but there's twists that will give you goose bumps and chills and make you want to throw your kindle. The ending will make you want to scream a little, or a lot, at Mr. Michael (that's ok he can take it) but will have you on the edge of your seat waiting for book number two. I am very impatiently waiting for the next two books in this series!

The night he meets Holly Nash at his brother's premier party he knows there is something different about her. Can Holly get over the fact that Porter is a huge porn star? Can Porter settle down and become a one woman kind of man? This is my second read from Mr. Michael and I loved it! There is the insta-love/like factor but it was written very well. Normally that can be a huge turn off but it fit well within the story line. Loved the porn aspect of the story and Porter's inter dialogue throughout some of his scenes. His character had me smiling on more than one occasion. The Hale brothers, (the Dick Dynasty) were an interesting bunch. I can't wait to see more from them.

Maybe not a lighthearted as this one, but don't we all love a bit of the dark side? I do believe Parkers story will be next!

Th Title: Porter Author: David Michael Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance, Humor Series or Standalone: Standalone Series (Dick Dynasty #1) Rating: ★★★★★ Review This isn’t my rodeo in terms of the porn industry in books, nor is it the first rodeo for reading about this from a male author, but it is the first book that I’ve had the pleasure of reading by this male author and after finishing it, I can say without reservation, it will not be my last. This book took me by surprise for a couple of reasons. The first being, I did not expect it to be as funny as it was. I mean, saying that makes it seem like it’s just funny all the time and it’s really not. There are quite a few truly gripping moments throughout, but when it was funny, it was downright hilarious and it worked. It took the heat so to speak off the more serious aspects. I also didn’t expect to connect to the other two brothers the way I did. One bringing the humor while at times, showing just how serious he could be, especially when it pertained to his other brother, Parker and the other one being, well, Parker. It was in the instances with him and Porter where I felt the most, emotionally speaking (apart from the couple and their romance). His issues spoke to me, and everyone’s reactions to said issues did as well. If anything the family aspect connected me even more than I already was. So with the way this book ended and knowing now that Parker’s story is just around the corner, all I’ve got is a resounding hell yes! Bring. It. On. But this book isn’t just about Parker. It’s about Porter and the one woman in the sea of them he could have chosen that he wants the most. Also the one that hates what he does for a living. Hates anything even remotely connected to the porn industry, in Holly. But this book, while I think nailing the porn industry pretty realistically (and humorously after being privy to Porter’s thoughts as he’s on set), is about more than that. It’s about these two people finding something in each other apart from what it is they do for a living and well, making it work, even though to the rest of the world it might be deemed to fail. I loved Holly. She wasn’t the heroine I was expecting when I picked up the book. I didn’t expect her to be quite the firecracker she was at the start, though still showing shades of being like others in that, despite her hatred for all things porn, she couldn’t help being attracted to one of the biggest names in it. Her reactions to that were priceless, and when she finally gave in and allowed herself to see past that, I only came to like her more. Porter at first comes across much like your typical arrogant alpha male, but in the end turns out to be so much more. At times, almost childlike in the way he reacts to situations that take place later in the story, but still remaining the adult that he is, especially in the interactions with his family. Often times appearing fatherly, especially after having lost his actual father. I can’t say enough good things about this book. The pacing was steady, it was a really quick read, but I didn’t feel as though it was too quick while I was reading. There just the right amount of detail to connect me to the business they were all in and to all of the characters. This is definitely a book that I’m glad I came across and one that I’m even happier I took the chance on. Now, bring on Parker!

So, a romance about a porn star? How is that going to work you ask? Well, I have to say, it worked really well. Porter, Parker and Preston Hale - brothers and porn stars - The Dick Dynasty. At first I thought Porter was a bit of a dick - no pun intended - but as the story progressed, his heart really starts to shine through. He does not make such a great impression on Holly, but she sure makes one on him! This is a great description of "judging a book by it's cover". Assumptions are made and it is great as we watch these assumptions shatter as they get to know each other more. I adored the relationship that Porter has with his family - you would think that with the industry they are in that they would be quite dysfunctional, but that could not be further from the truth. Porter is kind of the patriarch of the "dick dynasty" I loved the banter between Porter and Holly, and even more so between Holly, Porter and her two best friends, Becks and Mitch. OMG hilarious! Becks and Mitch need to get a book of their own! Besides the fun and laughter and sexy times (and there are some ssseeeeexxy times), Porter also has a bit of a darker storyline that will continue in the rest of the series. Yes, this does end on a cliffhanger, but we will have the next book before the end of the year. I look forward to reading Parker and Preston's stories.

    Incredibly Funny & Completely Dickstracting Yes I said Dickstracting that is not a misspelling. You must read this book to find out why I use that word and trust me when I say you will not be disappointed. Once you have read this book you may even want to track down the author David Michael and either kiss him or bitchslap him, I am still contemplating on that one. This book is about Porter. The oldest of three brother who just all happen to be porn stars. Holly is the Hollywood Casting director.

Once you have read this book you may even want to track down the author David Michael and either kiss him or bitchslap him, I am still contemplating on that one. This book is about Porter. The oldest of three brother who just all happen to be porn stars. Holly is the Hollywood Casting director. They come from two different worlds but Porter has always wanted to make it to the big time. There is instant attraction but can the two of them make it together? Should they? Will sometime stand in their way besides themselves. So to say I liked this book would be ridiculous. I LOVED this book. So let's start with the series title Dick Dynasty??? Hello brilliant. This book has me from the prologue, I snorted yes snorted before I even made it to the second page. I had fits of laughter through this book and while I expected that, I didn't expect to be so engaged with not only the main characters but the supporting cast as well. So cleverly written I found myself reminiscing about my friends and how we are around each other. Feel good times those were and this book brought me back to them. I loved seeing the relationship between Holly and Porter grow. The sex was Hot & steamy as hell. The ending however just no word no words whatsoever other than I have been BookSmacked I absolutely can not wait for the next book in this series. This is a must read. I will call this 1st Book Hangover of March for me. It will definitely go on my read shelf as a favorite.

    5* I was a bit dubious when I first read the synopsis, I couldn't see how romance was going to successfully mash together with the adult film industry so I honestly never in a million years expected to love this book as much as I do. Having said that it is so different to anything that I've ever read that I was instantly intrigued and wow am I glad that I let the curiosity get the better of me ;) Porter Hale is nothing like I expected him to be...

Yes he is in the adult film industry but he isn't your stereotypical porn star, he's really quite deep, there is so much more to him than you first expect and WOW does the guy have charisma!! Holly Nash is everything that I thought she'd be and more... She's no nonsense, driven and her inner monologue had me in tears! The secondary characters are solid too, Becks and Mitch are LEGENDS there is just no words for their genius, and the other two Hale brothers have my interest piqued too!! I can't fault the story, there are highs and lows and I'm not going to lie... The ending is MEAN... Like I wanted to hunt David down and make him fix it kind of mean! But damn if it didn't work... I am now waiting with baited breath for the second book in the Dick Dynasty trilogy! Awesome job Mr. Michael, you have well and truly smashed it out of the park! Can't wait for more from this crazy bunch!! 5 well deserved stars... 10 if I steal Belinda's ;) ARC received in exchange for honest review

She stereo types him right away, only sees that he’s a porn star and wants nothing to do with him. She tries to stay strong but she is not immune to his charm. Porter is written from both POV’s. Which I like because you get an idea of what’s going on in both characters heads and everything isn’t just one sided and David Michael has done that brilliantly. He made his characters likeable, relatable and oh so very sexy!!! I found this book to be quite funny too. Some of the conversations is just hilarious. I found myself in a fit a giggles a lot! David Michael’s writing is something I would love to read again. And I will! Parker is next to come out and I can’t wait to read his story. That’s due out winter of 2015. So, go… Download Porter right now. You will not be sorry you did it. 4 Stars ~Charlena

    The first time I heard the title "The Dick Dynasty" I giggled. Well, now, this is a bit different than what I'm used to from Author David Michael.

Filled with snark, humor and sexy times, this really worked for me. Porter and Holly were great! I loved their little dance, the back and forth, the witty repartee. I've got to be honest, though, the real stars for me were the sidekicks, Becks and Mitch, who are completely hilarious. I found myself giggle-snorting and shaking my head at them quite often, and I am hoping to see MUCH more of them going forward! An enjoyable read, this also left me with a hint of what is to come in the next book - Parker's story. This brother seems to be a bit on the darker, side, with more angst. Believe me when I tell you, Mr. Michael is at his best when digging into this type of character and story. Having experienced this before in his other series (United), I know this is where he will shine, and I cannot begin to tell you how eagerly I am anticipating this. I blazed through this in one sitting, had a blast with it, and now all I can say is "When do I get to read Parker?" *Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review*

    Wow!!!! I am now in love with David Michael!!! Funny, sweet, hilarious, crazy, side-splitting, drama, comical, hawt, and lovable!!! Just a few words to describe this adventure into the wonderful word of porn and Hollywood!!! Porter is the eldest of three brothers known to many as "The Princes of Porn" and some as Dick Dynasty.

He is one of my favorite book heroes this year. There is never a dull moment with him and you are always wondering what might happen next. Holly Nash is one of the top casting directors in the biz and very good at her job. She is very sweet to those she holds dear but a piranha to anyone outside her closest of friends. Her life works without a man and doesn't want to upset the balance. Then she meets Porter..... These two together make for a great time and a great book. The supporting cast is amazing as well and I for one can NOT wait for more. The epilogue leaves you wanting more and I for one may have cussed a little. ;) The story for Porter and Holly wraps nicely BUT cuts off for the rest of the gang. Thanks for such a great book!! I will be on the edge of my seat waiting impatiently for the next. (I'm talking to you David!!!) ;)

Fabulous cast of characters, all nicely set up for the follow ups, I was fully involved with all of the brothers and am very much looking forward to them all, David sure knows how to write some heat into a scene along with his fantastic sense of humour. A really enjoyable read.

    Porter, Before I began I was a little nervous about how a storyline about a porn star could be romantic. My first thoughts on Porter himself. Kind of an ass. My thoughts on Porter were quickly dispelled. He turned out to be a kind hearted king of the Dick Dynasty. His relationship with his family made me fall for him. Then he turned into a nervous boy when he was introduced to Holly. That made him all the more lovable to me. Holly and Porters story has you cheering for their sexy banter and even Porter, Before I began I was a little nervous about how a storyline about a porn star could be romantic.

I am praying from the ending we will be reading Parkers story next. I won an ARC of this book in a contest. I don't remember reading anywhere in the rules a review was a condition. I just loved the book and characters so much I had to share.

Not in the conclusion, which was awesome, but the speed in which it drew to an end. Regardless, it was a bloody awesome read. I eagerly await Parker's story.

    I was a little unsure diving into a book about a porn star, but Porter did not disappoint! There was plenty of romance, hot sex, and LOTS of humor. The characters were engaging and I want more of them - not only the boys, but Holly's hysterical best friends!

    Was very pleasantly surprised. I mean... Dick Dynasty? And written by a man ... you figure its gonna be testosterone laden.... and while it did have its testosterone it also had humour and touching moments. And to throw you way off base it has mystery and pain. You are mad. laughing. crying. every emotion is brought out in you. Some really mice sexy scenes as well. Friends and family support is fantastic in this book as well. And the last paragraph will have you biting at the bit for the next bo Was very pleasantly surprised. I mean... Dick Dynasty?

    Loved it! Porter is funny and sexy. I Wasn't to sure how this was going to play out but I wasn't disappointed. Porter is sexy as hell and I can't wait to read about his brothers. Holly and Becks had me in stitches.
