Publisher's Summary

Harper 'Happy' Downman has no idea what's about to hit him. A typical button-down, Christian conservative American with a quaint home, a lovely wife and a dull sex life, he lives a life of monotonous mediocrity in the sun washed paradise that is South Florida. At the the height of the Great Recession, Happy's world takes a sharp turn when he loses his job due to corporate downsizing. Things go from bad to worse when he returns home to find his beloved wife in bed with another man.
Struggling to find stable employment in the midst of an impending divorce, Happy's misfortune plummets further with the sudden arrival of his lecherous older brother. The black sheep of the family, he tempts Happy with a 'stimulating' solution that's sure to raise eyebrows within his ultra-conservative family. Relocating to the decadent, hedonistic streets of New Orleans, Happy finds himself in the most unlikely position...as the manager of a sex store.
Caught in a whirlwind of porn, sex toys and colorful characters, Happy is challenged to turn around the worst store in the company while also being forced to face the harsh reality of his role in his failed marriage. In the process, he finds himself also learning quite a bit about life and love from the very people he was once prejudiced against. For a man with a stellar reputation as a salesman, Happy's about to learn the true meaning of the adage 'Sex Sells'.

Surprising Good! Shockingly Informative!


Wow! Porn Again was surprising better than I anticipated; it had me cracking up! There were a lots of laugh out loud moments. One of my favorite scenes was when Happy was introduced to the "store" in New Orleans. I was actually speeding down the highway laughing my bu** off, picturing his face as he walked up stairs! Gosh, it was funny!

While listening, I was thinking this author did A LOT of research, but having the inquiring mind that I do, I looked up the author, and read somewhere he actually worked at an adult store in New Orleans. If this is true, we know the author's seen some crazy stuff, and I liked how he incorporated his experience and knowledge, into this work of fiction which was hilarious. I actually learned a few things; I never know there was an AVN. (When writing this review, I could not locate the article about the author, so take this information with a grain of salt.)

My "romantic at heart" self would have preferred a different HEA, but if there is a book two we'll see where the author takes us. The story started dragging towards the end, so I was ready for the characters to make a decision and for the plot to come to a stopping point. But overall, this was an entertaining, and funny read which I enjoyed listening too! However, this is one of those stories you cannot take serious, as it makes fun of a lot of different stereotypes, and views.

Arthur Byrd did an EXCELLENT job narrating. While some of the female characters were a little awkward, he definitely brought the story and characters to life, and added to the overall experience of listening to a really good audiobook!

Happy is the manager of a christian book store and sales are way down..he gets let go. He comes home and finds his wife in bed with another man...this crushes him and his whole life changes. His brother Lucky comes into town and offers him a unique opportunity to manage a failing store in New Orleans, but doesn't tell him its an adult book store...Lucky decides to check it out...and ultimately finds himself again!
