Blog Tour and Review for How I Became Lotus Raine...the Porn Star by Erika Ashby

I refused to work my way up the company ladder by sexually favoring my sleazy boss. I was beginning to lose hope. Until one day, he surprised me with an assignment that would literally rock my world.

I never imagined my first assignment being my last. But Brent Nichols worked his way inside every way possible, unlocking something within me. 

Becoming a porn star was never part of the plan. Neither was changing my name. 

Everyone else knows me as Lucy Rogers, but you can call me Lotus Raine.

“We don’t have to do this tonight, but you’ll just be prolonging the inevitable if you decide against it.” His hand moved to my neck, cradling it as it fell back and his free hand trailed up my thigh, moving under the jean fabric of my shorts. “If you don’t want to go all the way, I won’t fight it, but let me at least give you a taste of what you’ll be missing out on.” He bent down, whispering into my ear, licking the edge of it as his finger slipped beneath the security of my cotton panties. Man was I thankful for my non-painted on shorts at that very moment. And so was my conscious pussy.

I bit my lip—hard—suppressing the moan. I internalized it by pressing my center closer to him, as his finger moved in and out of me deeper and faster.

“So wet. So wet and tight.” He murmured praises into my neck as he recklessly worked his finger in and out of me. I had never been touched as possessively and with such expertise as I had with him. In my mind, he had to be a professional fingerer. That had to be a profession, right?

Knocking at the door broke through my consciousness and caused my body to tense.

“Wait your fuckin’ turn,” he turned his head, yelling toward the door.

“We need to go,” I said hesitantly as he continued working his finger, adding his thumb to the mix as he rubbed my clit. My hands pressed into the top of the counter as I pushed myself further into the wall. I could feel it deep within me—signs of what was to come, forming and beginning to crackle throughout my body. Like an electrical current seeking full charge. Sparks here and there uniting, wanting to become one combustible unit.

“We aren’t leaving this bathroom until you get off. Either by my finger or my dick. The choice is yours.”

“Seriously?” I withered even more beneath him. “Who talks like that?” I had never been so turned on in all my life. It wasn’t just the way he was touching me, but that damn mouth of his could get me off by words alone.

“Men who know what they’re doing.” He looked up and gave me a sexy smirk.


My Review

"All it takes is just one person, who's able to connect with you unlike anyone else, to reach down and unlock the parts you keep tucked away. That's all it took for me."

Lotus Raine. That name just oozes sex, doesn't it? 

How about the name Lucy Rogers? Not so much, huh?

What if I told you that Lucy was Lotus? I'm serious! Lucy is Lotus or Lotus is Lucy, whichever way you choose to look at it, it's true!

Imagine this. Lucy gets to interview a porn star and in doing that, she discovers the inner porn star in herself. Enter Lotus Raine. Now, SHE is being interviewed to tell how she became a porn star. Get it? I know, it's like the "Inception" of porn but, I promise, it's awesome!!!

Let me break it down for you a bit:

Lucy was just an average girl trying to catch her big break at her place of work, Mitchell Publishing. She was dying for that one story that would finlly get her noticed. Any story would do at this point! She kept getting upstaged by the boss' booty call, Rachel. I kind of wanted to come through my kindle and smack that girl! Seriously, she's a "B with a major ITCH". hehe!

Lucy would have never thought that her big break was just around the corner. And it was in the form of a carbon copy of Magic Mike that made her swoon with Sprite and Mini Starbursts.

"I wanted to find him, and thank him. Maybe even have him give me a magic high five in my pants."

She was beyond excited to have her first big story, but shocked might have been a better word. She was about to interview a porn star. Not just interview, but live with and become this man's shadow for a week. Could you imagine? Shackin' up with a porn star. It didn't help anything that he was hot. Not just regular hot, but HAWT hot!!

"Who needs Folgers when you could wake up screaming with Brent between your legs?"

Brent Nichols. Lawd child!!! That man is all kinds of yummo! 

"I never expected one guy to come into my life out of nowhere and whip everything I thought I was and wanted into a beautiful mess."

He exudes sexuality, but that's not who makes up the man. With this interview, Lucy was supposed to find out answers to standard questions about the life of a porn star. What she found out was so much better.

"Life is filled with the unobvious. People hardly take the time to seek out more than what's apparent. Just like how easily people judge one another based on appearance. When in all reality, what we look like is a misrepresentation of who we are within."

It's amazing what all can happen in a week. Not only did Lucy get the big story, meet an awesome guy and have off the wall, panty melting, grab the headboard and never let go sex, but she also discovered something within herself. 

"But is it considered changing if all that happens is you finally allowing yourself to emerge into the person you've always truly been?"

"Are you ready for your promotion, Lotus Raine?"

Erika Freaking Ashby!!! This book is a breath of fresh air. It's unlike anything I have ever read. I love that this book goes back and forth between the past and the present interviews. It's such a unique storyline. The characters are great. There's humor throughout and of course, lots of sexy time;)
I recommend this book to anyone that wants something out of the norm. You must read this awesomeness!!!

"All too often we let ourselves down with expectations. When in reality the perfect things are born from the unexpeted. Whether you change for the better or for the worse, it's the people and events that take place in your life that determine which."


Being born an "Army Brat", Erika Ashby has been residing in Oklahoma the last 10 years finally putting an end to the nomad tendencies she had grown accustomed to. She's a happily married woman who has 5 kids between her and her husband. She has an insane passion for music and embraces her Inner Groupie any chance she has. It wasn't until the age of 29 that she realized she also had a hidden passion for reading; before then she claimed to have hated it. Six months after unlocking that deep desire she never knew she held, she turned the key to another chapter of her life which has become the desire to write. And the rest is still history in the making.
