New Release & 5* Review ~ Mature Content (Cyberlove Book 4) by Santino Hassell and Megan Erickson

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

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.


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

“I think you’ve had guys turn you out and make you drool, but I don’t think you’ve ever had the kind of sex that you don’t even want to talk about, because you’re scared it was all a dream.”

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

There was a part of me, a large part, that wanted him to fuck me until I sobbed. Trouble was… I absolutely despised him. And I'd hate myself after.

Beau's roughness with his blatant need combined into a call I couldn't help but answer,

“You couldn't turn me out even if I drew you a diagram."

"He fucked me so good I almost forgot I hated him,"

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?

Zane: :D Aw Beau baby, you really do have a heart behind all those Crest White Strips. 



Beau: So we won’t see each other until Saturday?
Zane: Nope.
Beau: Heh
Beau: I want you here after lunch so I can fuck you.
Beau: Okay?
Zane: How could I say no?
Beau: You can’t. Be here. Wear your fishnets.
Zane: Yes, Beau.

Mature Content.... Fuck yeah! remember how off the charts hot Oli was in First & First??? yeah, that's Beau.... but it comes out of left field, so you're not expecting it, and you'll love it all the more for it. The title couldn't be more perfect.

I loved the hatefuck, and the fact they were sneaking around, it made it that much more intense. Then when they catch feels and realize it, is all the more sweeter.

Beau has this kind of goodie goodie perfect vibe while Zane is, well, TrashyZane. I just think the description of Zane is so completely adorable though. I also loved that it revolves around the topic of slut-shaming. It really isn't ok, and is something that should be brought up, and I think Megtino did a great job. I also love how they stay in top of pop-culture and teach me new things. They really keep me in "the know" ;)

One of my favorite scenes I hi k has to be Lush's Birthday party. Erma-fucking-gherd.
I had mentioned in a comment once that too much sex gets boring.... unless it's some stuff that's never really been written before or if they're in interesting places. These two keep it very interesting. I was not bored in the least.

Drama... that is what Zane's YouTube videos are based on. Well, more like a live journal, but on the dramatic side. Oh boy, does he do some drama in the end. It was epic and horrifying, and I don't blame him one bit. It was exactly what Beau needed to kick his ass in gear and take control of his own life and image and branding.

I love this series. It's just a fresh take on contemporary and these authors kick ass at doing it. I really hope we get some Deb and Mags next!! I'll be sitting here twiddling my thumbs waiting for the next book.

 Santino Hassell was raised by a conservative family, but he was anything but traditional. He grew up to be a smart-mouthed, school cutting grunge kid, then a transient twenty-something, and eventually transformed into an unlikely romance author.

Santino writes queer romance that is heavily influenced by the gritty, urban landscape of New York City, his belief that human relationships are complex and flawed, and his own life experiences.


Megan Erickson is a USA Today bestselling author of romance that sizzles. Her books have a touch of nerd, a dash of humor, and always have a happily ever after. A former journalist, she switched to fiction when she decided she likes writing her own endings better.

She lives in Pennsylvania with her very own nerdy husband and two kids. Although rather fun-sized, she's been told she has a full-sized personality. When Megan isn't writing, she's either lounging with her two cats named after John Hughes characters or... thinking about writing.
