Fantasies - we all have them.
For some it’s their dream job; others want the wedding, the 2.5 kids, the white picket fence.
My fantasies are a bit more...depraved.
Dark and sinful, they have destroyed relationships and my livelihood, yet I still submit to them like a slave.
For most, it’s a natural expression of love, caring, or lust.
But there are those of us who can’t stop once we’ve had a taste.
Those of us who don’t want to.
And the shame of that never-ending cycle will eat us alive...
My name is Evan James, and I am a sex addict.

“Sex Addict” was the story of Evan. He lost almost everything to his addiction – sex. But despite all the harm it did to his life, he can’t stop his behavior. One night with a woman named “Blondie” changed a lot for him though. Most of all, when he found himself sitting opposite her in his job interview. She was his future boss…
Until now, I only read “Try” by Ella Frank and loved her characters and sex-scenes. “Sex Addict” started out pretty good, I love books that can shock me immediately, because that means that I’m emotionally involved. But unfortunately, this turned into morbid curiosity quite fast. Not only did Evan annoy me with sex as the only thing on his mind, but there were also a few things, that didn’t add up IMO. Even though we talk about fiction here, I still want the facts in my books to make slightly sense. The backround-story of the MC’s was much too confusing, I had to read a few scenes repeatedly to make sense of everything and nothing bothers me more in a book. Their interactions with each other were totally detached and immature and I couldn’t see any kind of emotional relationship between Evan and Reagan (the female MC). So, whereas the writing was good and the sex-scenes were quite hot at the beginning (they started to repeat themselves sometime soon), I unfortunately couldn’t like the book really. I just finished it out of curiosity how their story would end after everything that took place at the beginning. If I would have read the separated parts of “A desperate man” (former title of this series), I would have honestly stopped after book one.
All in all, I rate “Sex Addict” with 3 stars. I can recommend it to fans of office-erotica with mature characters. Due to explicit scenes, 18+.
