#WhatADick

Vaughn Asher. I’ve stalked him relentlessly. I shaped and formed my lust into the perfect dirty hashtag…day after day… weekend after weekend. He was my prince. My fairy tale. My fantasy.

I gave him the best years of my online life and what did he do for me?

Ruined my social media experience one tweet at a time. That’s what.

#Fantastic #BackToNatureFucking
#MissingSomething #You

And now #TheDickWhoIsVaughnAsher thinks he can weasel his way back into this filthy blue bird’s Twitter account? He’s wrong.

His public fantasy is about to collide… ah, fuck it. He’s hot as hell, bitches. I need more than a free sample. This time I want it all. And I’ll do whatever it takes to get it.

My review of FOLLOW can be found on my blog here


J. A. Huss likes to write new adult books that make you think and keep you guessing. Her favorite genre to read is space opera, but since practically no one reads those books, she writes new adult science fiction, paranormal romance, contemporary romance, urban fantasy, and books about Junco (who refuses to be saddled with a label). 

She has an undergraduate degree in horses, (yes, really–Thank you, Colorado State University) and a master’s degree in forensic toxicology from the University of Florida. She used to have a job driving around Colorado doing pretty much nothing but shooting the breeze with farmers, but now she just writes, runs the New Adult Addiction and Clean Teen Reads Book Blogs, and runs an online science classroom for homeschoolers.

Disclaimer: I received an early copy in exchange for an honest review; I also pre-ordered and purchased my own copy.

I normally am not a fan of serials. There are very, VERY few authors whom I will happily wait for when it comes to serials. I usually will just refuse to read and wait until the series is over and then snag them all up at once, or hopefully in an omnibus. JA Huss is one of those authors I'm willing to wait for. And apparently she understands and is sympathetic towards the wait and these puppies are rolling out every TWO weeks. Hello, gorgeous!

So we left off in FOLLOW with Grace running away from Vaughn and his NDA, and running home towards her new job. She is mortified to discover that he is now following her @FilthyBlueBird account. We pick up with Grace confronting Vaughn about his tweets on her account. I found Grace's reactions adorable and relatable. She's mortified, titillated, tempted, and drooling. And I really liked Vaughn's reaction, too. Here is someone who normally doesn't fit into his use'em-and-leave'em NDA agreements, but he wants her badly and needs her to sign that NDA. His approach to her bank account and that hack to Starbucks may seem overbearing and controlling, but I thought it was sweet and one of those "it is what it is" situations. I mean, he has a point, right? Why do you work? To keep a rough over your head, food in your belly, and to be able to buy things. So, here is a simple way for me to take care of you. I'm on board with this. If I had a ton of money, I'd do that for someone I cared about to...oh wait, did I give it away? Nah, Vaughn gives himself away. Has he done this for other NDA girls? Yeah, I don't think so.

So there are grand gestures in this installment, some honest yet brief conversations, and a rather decadent, indecent, delicious dinner together. Will Grace sign that NDA or what? Vaughn works hard to convince her to do so while he is internally puzzling out what makes Grace tick.

But Vaughn is on to something here...there is something in Grace's past that makes her retreat into her twitter persona. Everyone has a dirty inner self, don't we? That's why there are fantasies, porn, and erotica, no? So you could argue that Grace is just letting her inner filthy bluebird out...but what's she hiding? I can't wait to read on and find out!

My tablet dings with an incoming third-party Twitter notification.

@FilthyBlueBird has unfollowed you.

I laugh. “Oh, Grace, Grace, Grace. You think you can slip me that easily?”

Grace @FilthyBlueBird – 1s
OMG, I have a stalker! What do I do, #BlueBirds?

You’d think a woman using Twitter this regularly for a few years would understand how it all works. I can still see her tweets when she unfollows me. I have to stop and laugh a little.

MovieStar @VaughnAsher – 30s
@FilthyBlueBird Who is this stalker? I will set him straight.

And then the usual happens. Within minutes, there are dozens of @replies. Mostly from her girlfriends on the Dirty Heaven list, the #BlueBirds. But some random stalkerish fans of my own are in there too.

@VaughnAsher is @FilthyBlueBird your GF?
@VaughnAsher if you’re the stalker, you can stalk me any time!
@VaughnAsher who is @FilthyBlueBird? Can I be your blue bird?

They get worse from there. Invitations to fuck them. Sit on my face. #SOHF is a code word for that on Twitter. @FilthyBlueBird uses that one a lot. And I’ve got to admit, that’s something I’d like to imagine. More than imagine, actually. I’d like to lick that sweet little pussy until she’s dripping down my chin.
Fuck. I’m horny. I reach for my phone and press Grace’s number in my contacts. She picks up on the first ring.
“What the hell are you doing?” she growls at me.
“You left so suddenly, Grace. I didn’t have a chance to—”
“Get off my Twitter feed, Asher. Now!”
I chuckle. It’s one of those full-of-myself chuckles I do when my power is looming over people. “Now whyever would I do that, Miss Kinsella?”
“Because, Vaughn, I’m just a girl from Denver who has absolutely no interest in signing your contract. It was a fun fling, but it’s over now. So leave me alone and stop stalking me on Twitter! My friends are all going to see—” She’s interrupted by a continuous litany of pinging from my tablet and I admit, at this point in the conversation, I’ve got a hand over my mouth to stop the laughing. She screams on the other end of the line.
I can see why. She just got bombarded with tweets asking about me.
“Oh my God. What do I tell them? What the hell am I going to tell them?” She screams again. “Fuck! Bebe just found out, thanks a lot! I never told her about you, now she’s going to know I was with you on the island.”
“So?”
“So? Jesus, have you no sympathy for me at all? She’s my best friend and I lied to her! I fucked a goddamned movie star and I didn’t tell her! How can you—”
“Grace?”
“—be so fucking cold, you jerk!”
“Grace?”
“Oh. My. God. Do you hear that? That’s her now! She’s calling on the other line!”
“Answer it, I’ll wait.”
“Answer it? No! I’m—”
“Grace?”
“What?”
“I’ll tell them all it was a lie if…”
“If what?” she growls at me through the phone.
“If you have phone sex with me, right now.”
