Dr. Fellatio by Stella
While I really enjoyed Dr. Fellatio by Stella (Stephie Walls and Leddy Harper), I have to say, I grabbed it for the title and the blurb. But it turned out they totally don’t quite fit the book. While I’m not disappointed, I just expected something totally different. I had also hoped to get some new BJ techniques to try out, especially from this line in the blurb:
Women hire me, pay me an exorbitant amount of money, to teach them the art of…oral stimulation. I’m what people have referred to as a “professional blower.”
Turns out Lexi learned everything she knows from Chris, her college boyfriend and love of her life who moved away years before.
“Before we knew it, we’d completely grown apart. In the three years we dated in college, we’d managed to weave our lives together so tightly we convinced ourselves that we were unbreakable. But neither of us had taken into account that the fibers we’d comprised ourselves of lacked the elasticity to survive being stretched from one corner of the country to the other.”
Well, Chris is back in Atlanta in the hopes of getting his girl back, but his crazy-as-hell roommate Cee Cee (AKA Candi) may ruin it for him when she seeks Dr. Fellatio’s advice on pleasing her boyfriend. Candi is hysterically stupid, but you can’t help but love her antics. And speaking of antics, I freaking LOVED Carl!
“I thought I told you to leave my office.”
“You did. But I wanted to finish my round first. I’m so close to beating my personal best of two hundred and ninety-one.”
“That’s your personal best? And by round, how many holes are you playing?”
“Well, I was hoping to get in the traditional eighteen, but your office is a little cramped. So I was only able to fit six without moving your desk against the wall.”
Dr. Fellatio was 100% a second-chance love story. Chris and Lexi have only loved each other and they both let distance tear them apart. If they can both get past the lingering hurt, hopefully they will find their way back together.
I’ve loved you for 70,280 hours. In 336 hours when I return, I will have loved you for 70,616 hours. And as long as I’m still breathing, and the earth still circles the sun, that number will continue to grow.
- I really loved the workplace and campaign they were working on.It’s rare when a workplace romance shows actual work!
- It was much more than I expected.
- I laughed out loud a lot.
- The side characters of Carl, Candi and Jasmine made the book!
- Chris never had any doubts about what he wanted.
- Why did everyone have two names? Chris is Patrick, Lexi is Alex and Cee Cee is Candi! Even Jasmine is sometimes Jazz.
- Alex shared a cube with Carl for 4 years and they barely knew each other, like Carl had no personality before, now suddenly he’s a hysterically crazy guy who does whatever the fuck he wants.
- They were equally at fault for the separation, but she blamed him the whole time.
The Down & Dirty:
Dr. Fellatio was a fun read from Stella. The side characters made me laugh out loud several times. However, the side characters also overtook the book, to an extent. They were the most memorable characters and I would love to see more of Carl, Jasmine and Candi in another book. The second-chance romance was a good story, but it bothered me that he got the blame for their separation so it held me back from completely loving Lexi. Dr. Fellatio is a great attention-grabbing title, but the title and blurb don’t really fit the story, there is actually much more to it than the title suggests. I actually enjoyed the book very much and look forward to more from the writing duo, but I wish I got some more of those BJ tips!
