(4.5 stars) Cautionary Tale

Simone Young has always wanted more for her life but didn't know how to get it. With her single mom working three jobs to support her and her sister, Simone quickly got swept up into the fast life of juvenile delinquency. She knew she always had the talent to be a dancer, actress, or rap artist but she needed to get her foot in the door. Simone's eyes are opened into a whole new world when her friend Carmen invites her to tag along on some freaky sexual encounters. Things start heating up for Simone when she branches out on her own and becomes a stripper. Although she's making good money, Simone still wants to get her acting or music career off the ground. Her wildest dreams come true when she enters the complex porn industry. Soon, Simone is becoming a major player in adult films but she still longs for a mainstream career and finding true love. Will Simone be able to leave her infamous porn career behind for a normal life? Insatiable is an engrossing, cautionary tale by Heather Hunter and Michelle Valentine. These authors give readers a insider's look into the porn industry that few people even know about. This book is not only about Simone's rise in the adult film industry but also a coming of age story as well. You see the transformation of Simone from the somewhat shy, naive teenager, to a grown woman who knows what she really wants out of life. These authors do a great job of showing Simone's emotional struggles that she has within herself. Fans are also treated to some tasteful black and white photos of Heather Hunter that are incorporated into the novel. The pictures actually set the tone to some of the chapters which was very unique. Although this is a novel inspired by Hunter's own rise in the porn industry, one can only wonder just how much of this story is based on actual true events and how much is fictionalized. Insatiable: The Rise of a Porn Star is raw, sexy, and entertaining. With the help of Michelle Valentine, Heather Hunter is ready to take the literary world by storm.

Heather Hunter's Fiction Debut

Adult film start Heather Hunter has released her first fiction novel. Insatiable is a 300+ page novel in which Heather writes about a fictional character named Simone. The novel chronicles Simone's early years in New York and her voyage into the world of adult entertainment. Many people reading the book may think its an autobiography due to the fact that the pages of the books are adorned with beautiful pictures of Heather Hunter. Although Heather's image (fully clothed) appears on the pages in the book, the book is not an autobiography, it's fiction. Fans of urban fiction will identify with the colorful street language. The intimate scenes in the book are very descriptive and there are many sexual buzz words in the book. This is a book that the lighthearted might find themselves peaking at the pages due to the nature of some of the content. The book leads us through Simone's graffiti tagging teen days, to her early sexual experiences, and of course one thing leads to another. It's a very exciting story as Simone finds herself in one situation after another, without giving away too much of the story at one point she even finds herself in a hotel room with a dead man and drugs. The descriptions of Simone's time working in strip clubs is quite descriptive. So much happens in this book it could literally be two books. It's a book that you might have to digest in bits and pieces due to all of the action but it won't disappoint fans of adult entertainment and urban literature.

Do You Love Yourself?

INSATIABLE is the fictionalized story of a young woman and her rise as one of the most sought-after African-American female porn stars. Simone decided before she ever finished high school, she wanted out of her mother's house. Feeling her mother would never support any of her endeavors, she figures out a way to move in with her close friends. She starts trying to make money by selling her body, and it isn't long before she is stripping in Atlanta. However, when a featured headliner at the strip club tells her she is a natural for porn, life for Simone completely changes. Life as a porn star results in easy money for Simone, but it also brings loneliness and moments of self doubt. She finds herself wondering, like in the Deborah Cox song, 'How did I get here?' After being swindled, used and just tired from the partying and drug use, Simone must make a decision to change her life. The question is whether she loves herself enough to do so. Although this is a fictionalized account of Heather Hunter's life, it is a good mirror of her experiences as Simone, the main character, was tested as she searched for enduring love, sought praise from her mother, inner peace and the ability to prove to others she is more than a sex star. The message is clear and I love that Simone recalled her mother stating education is the key to a better life. I love that random people asked if she loved herself. I love this is a cautionary tale, because although the ending is smooth, it isn't perfect and readers will recognize Simone still has room for continued growth. The pacing of the story was fine and the flow of the tales in Simone's life were easily chronicled. There was a good dose of hedonism with behind-the-scenes look at the adult porn industry and exotic dancing. Not all the characters were developed, but they were essential in recounting Simone's journey. Those familiar with Heather Hunter will also find enclosed many pictures of the star, which for some chapters highlighted the mood of the fictional character. INSATIABLE brought to life an industry that most of us have never understood and have judged, but it also gave a human understanding on how a young person can find themselves looking for easy money to compensate for the lack of self love.
