Hugh Hefner's Lasting Influence on America
Playboy's Hugh Hefner: Empire of Skin - ... Playboy's Hugh Hefner: Empire of Skin - Darwin Porter & Danforth Prince

Playboy's Hugh Hefner: Empire of Skin offers an approach to understanding Playboy icon Hefner that goes beyond the empire he built to consider his lasting impact on sexuality in America, delving into his approaches to entertainment and male privilege (among many other considerations of his life and influence).

 

Readers must throw out any preconceived notions about what a Hefner biography would look like in order to consider the multifaceted approach of Playboy's Hugh Hefner: Empire of Skin because it toes the line between a gossip piece and a broader inspection of Hefner's authority.

 

It should also be mentioned that this is no light piece. Over five hundred pages of facts about Hefner are culled from some 50 years of research from a former bureau chief and entertainment reporter at the Miami Herald. Playboy's Hugh Hefner contains a satisfying blend of factual reporting and discussions of affairs, Playboy politics, and Hefner's psyche, motivations, influences, and ambitions.

 

Readers who want to learn more about either Hefner or the Playboy empire's evolution, and who like their facts couched in a gossipy tone of drama to create compelling insights and reading, will relish Playboy's Hugh Hefner, and won't consider its length to be daunting.

 

Black and white photos of people, places, and memorabilia abound, complimenting and breaking up text and providing a fine visual embellishment to interviews and Hefner's own perceptions of himself.

 

The result is spicy, revealing, fact-based, and compelling: the kind of reveal read that appears weighty and daunting, but proves to be accessible, involving, and hard to put down. Playboy's Hugh Hefner is highly recommended reading for anyone who would learn more about Hefner, his world, and his times.

Falling for the Playboy (Bedtime Reads, #2) by Kennedy Fox
Falling for the Playboy - Kennedy Fox

 

 

Maverick and Olivia prove that fun and sexy can be sweet and tempting. Falling for the Playboy combines my love of romance with irresistible entertainment. Maverick is sex on a stick. His charm leaps off the page, but it's Olivia who steals the show with her caustic comebacks and her inner mini blogs. Kennedy Fox gives the readers what they want. A little bit naughty that feels OH SO NICE.

Playboy - Katy Evans

Playboy by Katy Evans is the fifth book to the much beloved Manwhore series. Technically this is a standalone but I suggest starting from the beginning to get the full effect and understand the many characters that show up throughout the story. I absolutely appreciate the chance to review this early because the teasers and cover alone had me super excited to read this book.

Weeks after a bad breakup from who she thought was The One, Wynn Watson is back in the dating scene hoping to gain some happiness back in her life. What was supposed to be a fun date turns into watching an underground poker game and somehow getting ensnared in the web of the mysterious Playboy. Gambler turned pro poker player, Cullen Carmichael lives up to his nickname every day. Finally having a certain redhead in his clutches a new game begins for Cullen to show he's the real deal and now playing for the win.

I loved that the main characters complimented each other so well and brought out a side no one else saw. Cullen was so intense and guarded, keeping anyone around him at arms length, but with Wynn by his side he became more playful and open. Wynn however I wasn't always fond of. I felt like she settled with a relationship and into a role because all her other friends getting married and put up a wall that divided her from real fun because it wasn't part of her life plan. With Cullen and his bets Wynn slowly loosened up and started living for the moments instead of trying to fit into a certain mold based off of others.

All in all Playboy was a fun, enjoyable read and the setting being in Vegas was super cool. Especially the scenes with the poker games, they felt so real it was as if I was another player experiencing the same rush as Cullen. I know for sure I want to read the other books in this series because I feel with great certainty I will love them just as much. Playboy is swoony and sinful in the best ways and definitely a book to keep a lookout for.

The Playboy Sheikh's Virgin Stable-Girl - Sharon Kendrick

One can only hope this one was tongue in cheek.

 

I spent part of it wondering if someone had snuck a historical in the lineup. Then there's the confusing sheikdom whose strictures seem more...European than middle eastern.

So our h takes care of her father's horses. Her father drinks and gambles. He gambles away his bestest horse, and the h convinces the H that the horse needs her. Of course, the H has other needs...

 

I mean; you can see it coming, and the h blithely wanders right into it because she's apparently sheltered to the point that it never occurs to her what his intentions are. And of course, he's a chauvinistic jerk up until he suddenly proposes to her, then everything is all flowers and bunnies. Poof. The end.
