Blog Tour ~ Review, Excerpt & Giveaway ~ The Fantasy (A Desperate Man #1) by by Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine

Book Description:

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.

“Come here.”
Evan James crooked his finger at the blonde currently shimmying back into her minuscule, tight, black dress. The same one she’d worn last night that had called like a siren’s song to his cock in the middle of the dimly lit club.
She looked over at him with heavy-lidded eyes and held the barely there fabric still around her waist. His eyes zoomed in on the impressive breasts overflowing out of her sheer, black bra. Covered, but not enough.
His mouth watered, and he wanted to drag her back to the bed and take hold of her ripe nipple before pulling the fabric down and out of his way to take her fully into his mouth again.
After having had her so many times in the last few hours, she’d no doubt taste of him on every inch of her soft skin. He liked that. Before, she’d tasted faintly of vanilla musk—a fragrance he wasn’t overly fond of. He’d made quick, dirty work of her though, marking and leaving his scent on her with his lips, his sex, his come, and he figured one last go-round before sending her on her way would suppress his craving for at least a couple of days.
He hoped. His appetite was voracious.
“Can’t get enough, can you?” She leaned down over the edge of the bed and placed her hands there, giving him an ample view of what he wanted. Now.
He narrowed his eyes. “Don't play with me.”
Blondie tsked and put her knees on the mattress, crawling on all fours toward him. “Oh, baby, I told you you’d never want me to leave once you got inside.”
She was right about that much. If he could live in pussy, he would. It was his weakness, his addiction, the one thing he’d give up anything and everything for. And he nearly had.

“The strongest drug that exists for a human is another human being.” - Anonymous

This book is the first one of a serial. I had gone in totally blind and only signed up because it was Ella Frank. I knew nothing about the book, what it was about or anything and to be honest I think that was a good thing. This book is sex personified, but what else would you expect when the male lead is a sex addict. There is a lot of sex in this book, but it is not gratuitous, but is a major part of the storyline. It is not romantic, it is not pretty at times, it is what it is, a f**k, a release, something that he needs more than air at times.

Evan James used to have it all, respect, money and a successful career; he was handsome and seemingly had the world at his feet. When we meet Evan though he is at rock bottom, he has lost it all, down to his last few dollars he needs to pick himself up but his addiction is making it impossible. Evan James is addicted to sex and no, this is not just someone who likes to f**k a lot, this is full blown cannot function without it and will seemingly do anything to get a release, even if it costs him everything.

“How long would he do this? This endless f**king cycle he couldn’t seem to stop. He dropped his face in his hands once more, unable to keep looking at that which he hated.”

Evan finally catches a break, with an opportunity to get back in the work place he is determined to keep himself on the straight and narrow, he just needs to keep his d**k in his pants. After his interview, he knows that will be an impossible task.

Reagan is a firecracker, she is confident, sexy, self-assured and does not take fools gladly. She says it how it is, knows what she wants and is very career minded. Reagan is no stranger to Evan James and knows all about him; it seems that she has just made his working life a hundred times harder.

“You know, that night, I thought you were a gift sent to ease all my sexual urges. For a few hours, anyway. But now, I realize you’re just a spawn of the devil sent to make my life a living hell.”

This is a great introduction to what is promising to be a fantastic series. This instalment pulls you in hook, line and sinker and leaves you wanting for more and to be honest it cannot come soon enough. I have to admit I am a serial w**re, I love them and find them a great way to fill a spot between books and between releases and you always know that you are going to get the next instalment quickly. I cannot wait to see where this series is going and am eagerly anticipating the next one.

About the Authors:

About Brooke

You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read; she used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her ‘quiet time.’ Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she now carries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.

Her first solo novel, a romantic comedy, is due out in early 2015, but first, she thought she’d write a raunchy story with her best friend that would scar her conservative southern family for life.

If you’d like to get in touch with her, she’s easy to find - just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone that’s dominated her cell phone for ten years.
