Wow this is the first book I've read by a dual author team and I have to say I was really pleasantly surprised. I wondered if there would be a change in the feel of the way the story was delivered because it was two authors collaborating together, I have to say there was no indication throughout the entire book that would suggest this was indeed a team effort. The penmanship was flawless, the delivery had perfect fluidity and there was no conflict of styles at all in short it was perfection.
As the title suggests, this story is hot, sexy, tantalising and totally alluring. I found I couldn't put this down I was so captivated by the characters and their story.
First we meet Evan James, he's a complicated guy with more than a few issues and at first I really didn't think I would like this guys personality but as I read and the story unfolds I began to understand him more. Yes Evan is a little screwed up for want of a better description however he's very misunderstood and by the end of the book I absolutely loved Evan, not only was he seriously swoon worthy he has a fab sense of humour too.
Evan has one huge weakness ......SEX !! He meets women that will quell his craving but that's all they do, suppress his wants for a short time and then his desires are back in full force. Women are expendable that is until he meets one particular woman that turns his world upside down.......meet Reagan. Reagan is a headstrong go getting power woman that excels in business and the bedroom and I loved that she was a perfect opponent to go up against Evan. Reagan is sassy, feisty and takes none of Evan tries to dish out, she is a brilliant character I loved her. It's refreshing to read a strong willed woman that's also on par for being the alpha character in the relationship rather than the male being the dominant. This is one of the best reads I've read in a while, there's not only hot passion but mystery and intrigue blended into the story too, I loved this book and I totally recommend clicking it now.
At first blush, the idea of a sex addict, like Evan James is in the novel by Brooke Blaine and Ella Frank sounds exiting, daring, dirty and riveting, much like the opening scenes of the book, but, as with any real addict of any kind, it only takes a little scratch below the surface to see the real effects of being an addict.
The cravings and the hunger, the lengths one will go to to satiate the overpowering compulsion, the depths to which one can fall as it takes over their lives, and the things lost along the way. Evan has already lost a lot. His job, and his reputation, even perhaps his career, and surely his physical possessions can't be too far behind if his addiction continues to dominate his life, to say nothing of the self loathing that comes from being unable to exert control over one's own actions when the cravings come back.
Fortunately, there's hope on the horizon, in the form of a job interview, one that will hopefully resurrect his career to the point that he can at least maintain his habit even if not conquer it, but things are never that simple.
The woman who's interviewing him? They've met before.
Truly one of the most original reads I've encountered, this book delves deeply into Evan's particular pathology, which not only grants the reader a few salacious glimpses into the depths of his depravity, but also into the pathology of his own personal demons and his struggle to keep them at bay.
A fascinating study in the differences and overlap between love and sex, fascination and obsession, want and need. Evan's efforts to improve himself quickly spiral out of control until he realizes that he can't save himself all on his own, and he needs help. What he doesn't realize, at least at first, is that those around him all have their own agendas where he's concerned.
Part One of the book is told first person from Evan's POV, Part two, from the POV of Reagan Spencer, the woman he's met before, and finally, part three is told in alternating form between the two.
I have to say that while I found the first two parts to be utterly fantastic, I felt that the third part was, comparatively speaking, slightly less so. Still good, but not as great. Even so I'd still easily rate it as a 4 star read.
