I am giving my perspective (No Labels Unleashed) view on this work. For the extended, full review, please visit The Review Board.

The Porn Detective is a snapshot where perception and reality aren't in alignment. Frances believes that her and her mate, Martin, are on the same page when it comes to sexual experience, views on sexuality, and faithfulness. However, certain events unfold where it is clearly not the case, and there were indicators early on where this is revealed.

The very first glance is at the actual wedding, after Martin and Frances got married, Indicators of all were not as they seemed when the Best Man, Marcus, started saying certain things about Martin. He mentioned Martin's trips to the pub, various women, and times when Martin's drinking got a bit excessive. This side of Martin Frances had never seen, yet when she asked him about it, he behaved as if he had no clue what Marcus was speaking of.

Martin's sexual behavior becomes destructive. The feel of his member in his hands while looking at sexual imagery becomes more important than making a spiritual and emotional connection through lovemaking with his wife.

His addiction spilled over into other aspects of his life, causing damage to his work dynamic as well as his finances. It also sparked Martin's addiction to alcohol due to his depression in his failure to fully handle his other issues in an effective manner.

Frances did her best to stay by his side during the course of all this. However, with each discovery, I could feel a sense of denial, a state of “I can't believe this is happening.”

Frances' emotions were on a constant roller coaster. Day by day, she would have to wonder if Martin was really being honest about stopping looking at porn. When she was looking around, she'd have to brace herself for what she may or may not find. She had to struggle with knowing she wasn't the primary star in Martin's life. She had to decide to love herself enough to decide there was more to her life than this; that she was deserving of a marriage where she wasn't in constant competition with pornography and alcohol.

The dialogue bits in The Porn Detective, at times, ended a bit awkwardly. Also, there are a few people who would say that Frances' naivete seemed to stretch a bit too long before she accepted the truth about her husband. However, everyone's breaking point is different. I applaud the writer for addressing this issue with such candor. ( )

Great read!! “The Porn Detective” by Stevie Turner is a contemporary fiction book. The book was given to me in return for an honest review and I thoroughly enjoyed it.This is a very interesting subject about marriage and one of the two people in the marriage hooked to pornography and alcohol.It is very interesting to follow France’s journey and her decision to try and live a life without Martin who spends most of his time with porn and drinks. I am sure that some people find themselves in the same situation and this book would be perfect for them.This book opens your eyes to some horrid situations that might find yourself in, if you marry the wrong person. That author does an amazing job in providing details and situations to keep you glued to the pages. It is very well written and I would recommend the book to everyone who wants to make sure their marriage is strong and safe. ( )
