Addicted by Alex Lucian ~Release Blitz w/ 5 Star Review, Excerpt & Giveaway

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 addictionan all-consuming, life-changing addictionthe lines are completely obliterated.

I am a huge fan of Alex Lucian’s tempting series and Addicted just became my all time favorite book in the series. Don’t worry though if you haven’t read the other three books this book can be read as a standalone. This book had it all hot sex, great characters, and amazing storyline that makes you want to reread the book the moment you finish it. I couldn’t put this down and as soon as I was finished I was mad at myself for reading it as fast as I did. You seriously do not want to pass up this book—-go buy it now. You will kick yourself so hard if you don’t read this book!!

Addicted is the story of Ruby and Elias. Elias pays for Ruby for what is suppose to be one night however after that one night he just can’t get enough of her. Not only does her body set his on fire but her brains, personality, and just everything about her has him wanting more of her. For as much as Elias wants Ruby, she finds herself breaking one rule she never thought she would- falling for a client. Will Ruby and Elias be able to make their all consuming addiction to one another into a real relationship or will their jobs and desires in life keep them apart?

As I stated earlier this book is soooooo good!!! I just loved Ruby- she quickly became one of my favorite lead females in a book. She never made excuses for herself and always took responsibility for her actions. Although she was an escort she never let that title define her. Elias is all alpha who knows how to treat a woman like they should. Guys should totally take notes from him. I can only hope that there will be more installments and more characters in this Tempting series.

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.
“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.”
