Addiction: the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming.

Ruby was sin and sex.
The ultimate indulgence and worth every penny she cost me. I paid for her body, but didn't know she'd end up embedded in my soul.

Elias was dark and tempting.
Unmatched in intensity and passion compared to my other clients. He handed me cash in exchange for my touch, and he dug himself into my heart instead.

Money changes things, firms up the lines of a relationship. But when it becomes an addiction—an all-consuming, life-changing addiction—the lines are completely obliterated.

Addicted is an erotic escort standalone in the bestselling Tempting series. The characters are interconnected with previous books, but it's not necessary to read them before reading Addicted

REVIEW

If there’s something you should know about Alex Lucian is that her books are hot! Ridiculously hot! And addictive, very addictive! Well, Addicted is very hot and very addictive, lol. I definitely enjoyed this one.

So, Addicted is Elias book. If you read Tempting and Provocative, he is Nate’s former brother in law, Diana’s brother. In those books, he’s not a very likeable character, however I was always intrigued by him. So, this one was a must read for me. If you haven’t read Tempting, what are you waiting for? But regardless, this can be read as a standalone.

Elias is a photographer that has travelled the entire world. He is also super alpha and brooding and has a few issues. He doesn’t do relationships and he loves escorts. Escorts give him a way to get what he needs without attachments. Right from the blurb you can tell this will be an intriguing and wild ride. You also know Ruby is an escort. Elias hires Ruby for a longer amount of time, and in the process he realizes there’s something different about her.

Ruby was also great, smart, with a great head on her shoulders. I was definitely able to relate to her back story and understand why she chose to become an escort. I’m not sure this is a character everyone will like from the get go, she’s a modern woman, with no regrets and no apologies. I on the other hand loved her, plus I love my books a little taboo sometimes!

I could definitely feel the connection between them from the get go. And the hotness level of this book is beyond belief, absolutely panty melting! I love that the relationship seemed to flow organically and in an uncomplicated manner. I loved that there were no huge conflicts or misunderstandings. And I definitely love the person Elias became with Ruby’s help. That for me was essential. Like I said, he was not a very likeable character in the previous books, so Alex did a great job redeeming him.

I love Alex Lucian’s books, they’re easy to read but complex while not being over the top or cliché. This is a somewhat controversial trope and I think she pulled this off amazingly. I definitely recommend this one and can’t wait to see what’s next for this author!

I laughed under my breath before stepping forward and punching the emergency stop button on the elevator.
“What are you doing?” she asked, her eyes wide in her face. Her pale face. Ever since that douche stepped into her space, all the color had been sucked from her skin.
Which is how I knew she was fucking lying to me.
No former client would have given her that kind of reaction. That guy knew her. And not just biblically, but definitely that too, given the crazy-ass gleam in his eyes when he looked at her.
When I didn’t answer right away, she fidgeted, crossing her arms over her stomach and then letting them drop again. Then she swept a hand through her hair, making sure the curls were still laying over one shoulder.
“Beck and call, right?” I rasped out, leaning my shoulder against the wall of the elevator.
“What?”
“You. You’re at my beck and call for these thirty days, right? This being day one.”
She mimicked me, leaning her shoulder against the opposite wall, essentially facing off with me in the small space. “That’s right. Do we need to discuss this now?”
There was a slight edge to her voice that I’d never heard before, and I wasn’t ashamed in the slightest to say that it hardened me even further. “Why not?”
“Because I prefer not to have business discussions when I’m in a box that’s suspended sixteen floors above the ground.”
“We’re not going to have a discussion.” I straightened, undoing my belt. Her eyes tracked the slow movements of my hands.
“I’m not having sex in this elevator.”
“No, you’re not.” I raised one eyebrow, and lifted my chin at her. “You’re going to get on your knees for me. I want to know what your lipstick looks like on my dick.”
