My rating: 5 of 5 stars
WHOA! WHOA!!! 4.5 Stars.
I just finished an ARC of Addicted to Sin and boy let me tell you it absolutely lived up to its title. First I want to address that when I was reading the description of the book it sounded like a love triangle (I am not down with love triangle or three-some myself ☺)… BUT let me say that this is NOT a LOVE TRIANGLE, no cheating involved … but rather the guy was torn about choosing the right girl. GOOD versus EVIL.
Dixon is a shrink who makes tons of money listening to people pouring their sinful secrets. His job is to help them come to term with their problems but he himself is a lost cause. He has a dark secret of his own – SEX ADDICTION.
At first I thought I was going to dislike Dixon because even though his patients were all too willing (some aggressive) to engage in sexual act during their sessions I thought it was unethical because these patients are vulnerable and should not be taken advantage off. Yes! That’s me, the nurse talking … LOL But I realized I am reading a book, not real life!!!! Silly me ☺ Dixon really grows on me. He is a hot, sexy, caring, good guy at heart – just been burnt bad and that’s changed him as a person. Turned him into a manwhore!!!
Dixon met two beautiful women. Madison is a smart, sweet and innocent young student. She also has a dark past that makes it hard for her to open up and trust people but she is attracted to Dixon. Their relationship was rocky partly from Dixon not able to make up his mind choosing the one but also from the struggles she still hasn’t dealt from her secret past. Dixon’s trying to be a good friend, and the way he takes care of Madison is heart-warming. He calls her “angelo” Gah!!! swoon-worthy!
All that Italian talks geeze — pant-melting. Why didn’t I learn Italian in high school?
Note written from Madison “…I saved you a piece – from one angel to another…” – isn’t she sweet?
Juliet on the other hand is a crazy sex addict … she is borderline stocker. I felt the whole “Fatal attraction-ish” oozing from that woman. Yikes!!! Dixon is attracted to both women for very different reasons. Juliet satisfies his sex addiction issue, whereas with Madison he can have a real relationship that he was once capable of. So, who will he choose???
“I know who I should choose, but I never said I was the hero of this story, or even the good guy. And besides, who wants to be good, when it feels so good being bad?
My tale isn’t for the faint-hearted. If you’re game, strap yourself in and expect the unexpected. But don’t say I didn’t warn you…”
This is the first book I read from Ms. Monica James … AWESOME! I already asking her for more sinful book ☺☺ LOL …
I really enjoyed her writing style. It lured me in the story and kept my interest and curiosity until the end. I also enjoyed the funny dialogues between Dixon and his friends.
This book is really sexy and steamy. So yeah, buckle up and enjoy the a very bumpy ride (punch intended) ☺
Can’t wait for book 2.
