    This book was given to me free for an honest review.I am giving this book a 4 star rating. I'm not sure yet if I hated it or loved it. I got done the book about 1/2 hour ago and I have been sitting here pondering it ever since.This book is about a man named Alex who is married to a woman named Angela. They have two children together, they are in their early 30s and have been married for awhile. After being married for years, Alex is dissatisfied with their sex life and suggests to Angela that they have an open relationship. This somewhat back fires on Alex, much to his surprise. So this is where I am having a problem with the book. There are so many thing I don't agree with and Alex just seems to be a push over. I am an open minded person when it comes to sex and when it comes to relationships. So in saying that, I tried to keep an open mind while reading this book. Don't get me wrong...this book was hot as hell, there was non stop sex as Alex and Angela experimented NON stop with every variety of sex out there. I think the first 75% of the book was nothing but sex.But, as the book went on and Alex and Angela's relationship started to change, something spiritual began to happen. It seems they both needed to figure themselves out, what they want and where they stand, not only with one another but in life. The end of the book left me wanting to punch Alex in the face. And up until the last few pages, I disliked Angela. I understand her more now but, she just bothers me! This book kept me captivated but somewhat pissed off the whole time I was reading it.Note to all couples out there: never suggest an open relationship....this book is what happens if you do!

    I started reading this book with a very open mind and thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. Alex loves his wife but doesn't love his sex life. He suggests an open marriage arrangement to his his wife and is quite surprised and a little unsettled with her agreement. I loved the story set-up. The title of the book is perfect and Alex was such a realistic character, very relatable and very vulnerable.Overall, I found this to be a great transformational story. It certainly starts out in the category of be careful what you wish for and it doesn't disappoint from there. It's well-written and the erotic scenes are excellent.

    A really impressive book that delivers many pages of steamy and stimulating erotica. I loved the main characters, Alex and Angela really tell the subject in a passionate way and take the reader on a journey towards reigniting their relationship. It is a truly moving sexual journey and I couldn’t put it down from the very start. Highly recommended.

    First, let me say, this book was given to me free for an honest review. I'm a teacher with a background in literacy and writing. My thesis was in bilingual education. Hopefully I am more critical than most because if this.This book is written in a very unusual way that may appeal to some people more than myself; the writing felt problematic and distracting to me. Although it's hard to describe, and I may be totally wrong, my suspicion is that the author's first language is not English. He is most certainly fluent, but I suspect he'd be better suited writing in his first language and possibly paying a translator for a better outcome. My feeling is he has potential to be a much better writer than what came out. What is written cannot be described as literature, but only because of its choppy nature. It read more like a literal play by play of a horny man...which I think it was...The story bothered me on a few levels. Mostly I felt the main character was a boringly typical, sex-obsessed man who went through life from one sex act to the next, without much living in between. He was incredibly shallow. This eventually changes somewhat, however I still felt as if the main character was underdeveloped as a person, and as a character. He seemed somewhat more enlightened at the end, but I still felt as if he was just an immature, horny, and totally lost man. I never feel that I really understood Alex and I definitely did not like him even a little. He had so few motivations other than where's my next screw? Luckily this changed a bit by the end. His relationship with his mom was very simplistic without a history or depth either. There was a lot of unmet potential waiting to be written. There were themes in the book that could have been more developed, but completely fell short and weren't explained or investigated. Angela's inability to orgasm could have been more fully investigated. As well as her (weirdly) not ever being at all attracted to the guy she married and this never seemed to change. I'm sorry to say Angela was just there for Alex's purposes of sex and security. I never got to know or like her (I wished that I had) regardless of the haphazard blurb about her trauma as a child. The first swingers' couple and their crimes seemed irrelevant and many other details seemed pointless. The overall character development is very poor. The only person I feel as if I knew and liked, even a little bit, was Lalita. The author showed a talent with her character development that wasn't apparent with anyone else. He gave her a history, a real personality, feelings and actions beyond sex! Would I read something by this author again? Yes, but I'll admit it would be to see how he can develop as a writer of fiction. Focus on developing characters' personalities and histories so we can understand their motivations and desires more thoroughly.

    So Alex decides that he would rather ogle women in a cafe that serves awful coffee than talk to his wife about what is lacking in his marriage, or rather, what he feels is lacking. I started off by not finding Alex at all likeable because of this.When he finally decides to talk to Angela, his wife, he suggests an open relationship because all that is on his mind is how many women he can shag. I still didn't like him at this point. It's not the sort of conversation you should have with your wife, or rather, the solution to his problem shouldn't be an open relationship.Anyway, this is where the book got better.....Angela said yeah, whatever!! That made me laugh my head off because I think Alex was secretly wanting his wife to be upset at his suggestion when instead, she was all up for it!! He was very derogatory towards his wife's appearance which I didn't like and again, when Angela started to get fit, it was good to see how Alex felt about that. I really liked some of the comebacks Angela had to Alex's questions and I did find myself laughing and hi-fiving Angela!The book progresses to follow Angela and Alex on their journey experiencing different kinds of sex with different people, from mild BDSM, to swingers parties to lesbian sex. Alex was very jealous knowing his wife was off meeting another man, yet he found himself oddly turned on by it.The major part of this book is their sexcapades and they are fairly well written although I didn't find them as hot as they could have been.The book was simplistically written, no large amounts of purple prose, so that was a definite plus. there also wasn't a lot of background on the couple except to say they had been married a few years and things had gone stale.I would recommend this book for people who like to read about different sexual situations with a little bit of story thrown in.However, I hate the cover of the book. It really is quite boring considering the content of the book. I also am not really enamoured with the title of the book. I feel the author hasn't presented this book as well as he could have and that's a shame.Finally, the ending....I hated the ending but I guess you would have to be a very brave author to end it any other way.

    Sex God is a fast paced, sexy book, filled with intrigue and danger in every corner. Alex Sterling, the main protagonist has been married to Angela for almost a decade and has two children aged 5 and 6. He feels unfulfilled in his marriage sexually; as he imagined his sex life would improve over time and not become mediocre at its best and usually worse than that. He feels completely torn as he loves his wife and kids more than anything and the thought of living without them terrifies him. In his attempt to save his marriage he declares he wants an open relationship. To his surprise Angela agrees and it’s not long after this that Angela gets a new lease of life and embarks on a strict exercise regime to get her body toned up to the maximum. Alex starts to spy on Angela through her text messages on her phone only to discover Angela is in touch with an ex-lover who she plans on meeting up with that eventually triggers off several dozen unexpected erotic encounters. Alex fears that he has opened up “Pandora’s Box” with Angela as she is now presenting many new sides to herself that Alex didn’t know existed in which secretly turn him on and leads to a completely new sexual journey of discovery for them both that results in a high-stake game with a number of life changing consequences at the end.Matthew Armstrong manages to successfully write and capture a great number of highly erotic scenes with well-devolved characters’ who have strong physical attractions towards one another and provides the reader with a thought-provoking, titillating and stimulating read.Disclosure: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Let me just say WOW! I was sucked in just from the name of this book “Sex God”. I loved this story and I actually get the “Sex God” title! Which in some ways surprises me. What I thought at the beginning of the book is not what I originally thought the meaning to be by the end of the book. I really feel enlightened after reading “Sex God”.This story is about a marriage between Alex & Angela that may have gotten a little stale and Alex feels he is suffocating if he has to keep living it. He broaches to his wife about opening up their marriage and the story unfolds from there in not necessarily what Alex thought he was looking for. I feel that this book is a MUST read. And, I will be recommending it my friends. I can see why Matthew Armstrong is an inspirational speaker by day and an author by night or visa versa…. You will get the meaning if you read this book and find out more about this author. I have been married for a long while and have definitely thought of some of the things mentioned in this book but, never would do them because I have always been afraid that neither my husband nor I would be able to handle the fall out after the fact. In "Sex God" I think all ended well, at least I think it ended well. I can’t believe you left me with an ending like you did Matthew Armstrong! I sure hope that means that you will be writing more! I loved this story and look forward to reading more from this author. I believe that it is his debut erotic fiction book.P. S. To the ones that want to know this book also was very HOT & steamy at times! This ARC was received for an honest review and I give “Sex God” 5 Stars!

    I was asked to read this book and I had my reservation as it does deal with a extramarital sex. But unlike an affair theydiscuss it and decide to have an open marriage. I could see it coming when he was not as into it as his wife was. He actually ends up not wanting to sleep with other people but she has found someone else. I could see this imploding on him and ultimately the end id divorce. I was so happy with theending of this book. I will not tell you what happened as theyboth embark on a journey of self awareness and learn to loveone another again. It may not have been my way to handlethis life decision. I would love to have a follow up book on the couple and see her husband finally give her the one thing she has never been able to achieve during sex. that would have been nice to know. maybe the writer will write anotherbook. I certainly hope he dose, this book is so well written that I literally felt my own heart hurt for him when she did what she did to him. Then when her car broke down, and heran after to help her and set her to a therapist to calm her. It felt like god had intervened. It just show how much passion the writer put into the book to make you feel they way the characters were.I hope you enjoy this book as Much as I did.If you do like this book, please consider leaving a review.The Authors really like it when you do, they value your opinions too.

    Alex Sterling and his wife Angela have hit a rough patch in their marriage. Every time Alex comes into contact with a gorgeous woman, he thinks about ripping her clothes off. Alex approaches Angela with a proposition that might save their entire marriage; but will she be up for it?The dynamic between Alex and Angela quickly changes once they discuss Alex's proposition. Alex has never been more attracted to Angela, but he can't help but wonder if he made the right decision. If things go too far, will he be able to turn back and forget about all that has happened? Or will he be forced to live with a horrible decision?Oh man, where to begin? This book is absolutely not for the faint of heart. Even if you cannot relate to this story on a sexual level, you will be able to relate to one's deepest desires that yearn to come out. This story is not just about sex, but it is about two people trying to figure out who they really are, and what they really want.In the beginning, I was not a fan of Alex. After all, who wants to know the truth that their husband doesn't believe in their marriage anymore? The more I learned about Angela, and the secrets she was keeping, I felt more compassion towards Alex. Their journey is filled with really high highs, and extremly low lows. Sex God is a story that will definitely leave you wanting more.

    Wow! What a roller coaster ride! I was given this book for an honest, unbiased review. I really enjoyed it. The first few sentences, I was concerned, but then it picked up and we were off to the races and never slowed down for a minute. There was nothing predictable or typical at all. The story line was interesting and intriguing, even a little dirty, which is always fun. Sex God was a quick read that kept me entertained throughout. Great job!

    This book is not your average cookie cutter romance book where Billionaire meets innocent young university graduate. This book is more gritty and true to life with strong sexual content but also good development of the characters. At several times during this book, I really felt for the guy 'Alex' and was glad when I read the ending... (I won't spoil it for you).

    I'm going to start from the ending and work myself up to the beginning. I will be including spoilers on here so please stop reading this review if you are looking to not find out certain details regarding the story.This book suffers from a few issues, one of which is the style of writing. In my humble opinion, writing it utilizing the present tense exclusively, was a mistake. I feel that the story could have been much more layered and textured if the author would have adopted either a past tense or would have seesawed between past and present. However, the book feels amateurish because of it. The story itself felt choppy. I could appreciate pockets of it such as Alex's inner turmoil about his wife seeing another man and experiencing certain pleasures with said man, when she hadn't with him. The pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, I felt, was a really interesting direction to take a story that till that point, felt rather banal. If the author would have spent more time on the pilgrimage and exploring Alex's metamorphosis and his later ascension into a successful business, this book may have been more complex and therefore, interesting.I can appreciate the exploration of the open marriage and the doing away with societal assigned sexual labels, but in order for me to connect to the experiences of the characters, I need to care about them. The characters felt one dimensional and rather flat for the bulk of the book. At the end, we begin to see a glimpse of something more within both of the protagonists, but then the story ended before I could actually give a damn about them. What I will commend the author for is the pacing. The story does move at a swift pace and that is the reason that I gave this book a second star. I do see some potential for solid storytelling in future books by the author. Armstrong's perspective of a thirty something male, going through a life crisis, makes for some engaging reading. I almost wish that he hadn't felt compelled to make this story about Alex's sexuality and instead centered it on the existential crisis. There could have been a lot of fertile ground there to explore and the sexual component could have been an aspect of it, rather than the driving force.Ultimately, do I recommend this book? Honestly, no. I do think if someone is looking to read some erotica with a somewhat "safe" take, this is all right. To be fair to Sex God, I wasn't enamored with Fifty Shades of Grey. As far as BDSM, I feel Sex God did a much better job of exploring aspects of the discovery and exploration of BDSM in a relationship, than Fifty Shades did in three books. Some scenes were sexy and would appeal to a broader audience. I hope that the author does continue telling stories but I also hope he gets a new editor that may help him hone his craft. I see that Armstrong may have more stories to tell but can benefit greatly from having someone by his side that will pull at his collar and telling him to heel.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Sex God: an erotic adventure of self discovery is Matthew Armstrong’s first work of fiction.There is a lot going on in Sex God, and some of works and some doesn’t. The idea that two people can go into a relationship for the wrong reasons or lose their way but then find themselves and one another again definitely works. Unfortunately, Mr. Armstrong threw everything but the kitchen sink into his story, and the aforementioned relationship message can get lost. Angela and Alex are married with two children. They have a struggling business that allows them to just cover their expenses. What they don’t have is passion and intimacy. Alex spends a lot of time flirting with waitresses and fantasizing about them. He doesn’t act on the fantasy out of fear of losing access to his children. Not much is revealed about Angela until the very end of the story. Her little revelation is not explored in depth. There are a myriad of secondary characters that aren’t developed at all: swingers, dominatrix, swindlers, Camino de Santiago pilgrims, and Russian businessmen.The variety of secondary characters mirrors the diverse plot points in Sex God. Horny, confident Alex gets a figurative slap in the face when his proposal of an open marriage back fires. Alex runs from wanting to explore his sexuality to exposing Angela and himself to blackmailers, to walking the Camino de Santiago and exploring chakras while doing so. The mixture of a typically Catholic pilgrimage and Yoga/Eastern philosophy didn’t work for me. The jump to a convenient, holistic and happy ending felt abrupt. The bottom line is that the story felt very choppy and the characters’ path to self discovery was disjointed, random and minimally explored.Matthew Armstrong shows promise. With a better editor, he has the potential to be a good storyteller. Armstrong has a lot of interesting ideas from which to cull premises for a variety of stories, and he doesn’t shy away from taboo topics.I am hoping that Mr. Armstrong continues to explore fictional writing.***Review has been done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official.

    4/5 StarsThe start of this book is about a man called Alex who has been married almost a decade, 2 kids and a wife who he has no sexual connection with, whilst out during the day he eyes up women he would like to have sex with and flirts with them. Alex makes the decision to speak to Angela, his wife, and suggest an open relationship. Bam! Huge mistake! I was laughing at how the story follows on from this! Essentially he gets the green light to go and his labido suddenly disappears and the many women he would have liked to have sex with suddenly don't seem as attractive! However Angela is full steam ahead to get something going with an ex partner much to Alex's dismay. I like how the story was written, and how although Alex is wary about Angela meeting her ex Marco he highlights his concerns with her and they seem pretty much on the same page for most of this agreement. I found the story was a little confusing in places and had to regroup myself to work out where I was, and months would go by reflected by small paragraphs. Ultimately after trying swingers clubs, Alex having some experience with a BDSM woman, Angela decides she wants out of it all including the marriage and tells Alex she is leaving him for Marco and taking the kids. For me this is where I truly started to enjoy the book. Alex sets off on a journey, not to find himself but because the bottom has just dropped out of his world and in his words he has nothing better to do. I found this part of the book really enjoyable and enlightening, I wanted Alex to be ok. I was really interested in the whole section on him travelling across the Camino and the people he met along the way.To me this book became more about finding out what is wrong within yourself and not about a quick fix for a relationship, reasons things are not working are more than they appear and run really deep. If you are looking for a quick enjoyable read about a man that needs to re-evaluate his life then this is it!

    I started reading this book awhile ago. For me, it did not keep me captivated. It was interesting enough, but it just fell "dry" after awhile. Parts were enjoyable, but I just couldn't stay focused on the story. I hope the best for Mr. Armstrong.
