Tell me your deepest, darkest secrets. I dare you.
Addiction comes down to one simple, primitive concept. Desire.
My name is Dr. Dixon Mathews, and I’m New York’s finest shrink. For $500 an hour, people tell me their darkest, most sinful secrets.
My own addiction? Sex.
I might be certified in solving other people’s problems, but not mine –
I know I’m a lost cause. I don’t do relationships. I don’t even do the same woman twice.
But that’s all about to change, thanks to two entirely different women who awaken my deepest desires.
Who will I 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…
Achingly sexy and highly addictive, the first in the Sinful Pleasures Series will have you hooked. Driven to Sin coming very soon…
I have always been a huge fan of this author. And this seemed a bit different than her usual books. Deeper. Darker. Sexier. I was intrigued, but wasn’t so sure. But by the end? Addicted! Ms. James can do no wrong.
Dr. Dixon Mathews is a psychiatrist that specializes in addiction. His clients pay him a lot of money for help in solving their problem. But Dixon has problems of his own. His addiction to sex. Now before you go thinking you know this story...you don’t. Dixon has deep rooted issues. He uses sex to cover up his past that left his heart shattered. And he will never admit it. Not even to himself. Until he finds himself completely enamored with two different women. Two very different women. And it’s not what you think. There is no triangle. Both women awaken something inside of him. Dixon’s life is about to change.
We are taken on a journey with Dixon. And the women that have him all wrapped up. He comes to learn that what he thought he wants is not what he needs. His needs have changed. It’s time to face his past head on. He becomes aware of his choices. And that with choices come decisions. And ultimately consequences. Some that may cost him everything. Dixon is a unique character. Sure he sleeps with everything that walks, but there’s a side to him that the author slowly unfolds. As a a reader you fall for him. For his heart.
The writing is captivating and draws you in page by page. I found it very hard to put down as the story flowed effortlessly. The author seamlessly tells the story from different POVs that allowed you to become completely embedded within the lives of her characters. I am very vague in the plot to avoid spoiling anything for the reader. You want to go into this story knowing as little as possible. Once Dixon Mathews grabs you, he is not letting go. Not until the very end. And even then you’ll be like me...tapping your kindle screaming that there has to be an additional chapter! I will be the girl rocking in the corner waiting for book two!
The author tackles some serious and heavy issues here. Your heart goes out to all of the characters. They are flawed. Imperfect. But you will easily find that you can relate to them on some level. For we all hope for love and to be desired. To love and receive love in return. But life does not always go as planned. And secrets? Lies? They all come to light. Unless you make a bargain. But at what cost?
Addicted To Sin is raw, genuine, and honest. There are no rainbows and butterflies in this story. These are real people battling their inner demons. And at times, themselves. People that learn that the fall from love is much harder than the fall into it. There are twists and turns you do not see coming. The author brilliantly executes a sexy and well crafted story about deep dark secrets and falling for the one your heart ultimately desires.
Well done! I am SO ready for more Dixon Mathews.
