Book Review: Rising Starz
For all those porn fans out there who like to read books (come back! don’t click away!), author Owen Keehnen has penned Rising Starz. The latest installment in this interview series takes you behind the scenes and into the lives of some of your favorite porn stars. Among those featured in this edition are Bruno Bond, Kirk Cummings, Lucky Daniels, RJ Danvers, Mike Dreyden, Conner Habib, David Taylor and Austin Wilde. The studs talk about their careers, goals and turn-ons. They also discuss their lives off-camera and how they got started in porn.
Keehnen has penned three other books in this series, Starz, More Starz and Ultimate Starz, and he recently told VincentLambert.com in an exclusive interview what makes this edition special. “I wanted to focus more on the up-and-cummers (so to speak) of the jizz biz,” Keehnen says. “The 45 XXX stars in this volume were truly a great group of men. I love this edition of the series because the conversations frequently took such unexpected turns. I learned a lot and think that readers will as well. I hope it is half as much fun to read as it was to research.”
Owen went on to share a few of his favorite subjects: “Conner Habib got me hard by uttering the magic words ‘I used to teach English at two universities and now I do porn.’ Tony Buff is simply one of the hottest and most charismatic guys ever to do porn. Cover guy Logan McCree is one of the most sexual beings I have ever met. It’s animal magnetism to the extreme, and the fact that he’s a DJ makes him that much hotter. Gorgeous Ross Hurston is movie star handsome with a British accent, so I am hereby proclaiming him the Cary Grant of fuck films. Damien Crosse, who is another fantasy man of mine, told me all about how he and his partner, porn legend Francesco D’Macho, like to have water sports fun. RJ Danvers is a honors college student during the week and a porn star on the weekends. Kirk Cummings is a cute little number who auditioned for American Idol. Those are a few, but there are so many others.”
Rising Starz is available through Amazon and at LGBT bookstores worldwide.
