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…

Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna ~ 4 stars
***ARC received for an honest review***

“Addiction ~ the continued repetition of a behavior despite adverse consequences, or a neurological impairment leading to such behaviors.”

Monica James has quite the wicked brain it seems and there was me thinking that she was all sweet and innocent. Addicted to Sin…addicted to Dixon more like.

“However, who wants to be good, when it feels so good being bad?”

Dixon is one cocky, self assured arse at times but underneath all that is a man with a broken heart who is just abusing his body and the women to get over his heart break. Dixon is a psychiatrist who specialises in addiction, whether it be drugs, food, alcohol or even sex. Every addiction stems from something and he is a pro at seeing underneath the layers to get to the root of the problem. He is well renowned in his field but he is also hiding something…he too is addicted to sex. This addiction is a way of him forgetting his past, he deems this as taking control of his life and hopefully leaving his heart in a safe place, safe from being broken again…but is it just masking an issue that is just going to fester over time.

“We met three years ago in a line at Starbucks, and it was love at first macchiato.”

Dixon’s interest is piqued by two women and this is a novelty in itself, this is the first time he has been “interested” in more with anyone. On one hand we have the devil, Juliet and the other an angel, Madison. It is ironic that he literally meets these two women within weeks of each other and now he has a dilemma…his dick tells him one woman, but his head tells him the other.

“Even for a stolen moment, I just want to forget how much it hurts to love someone who doesn’t love you back.”

This is not a love triangle per se and there is no cheating for those that abhor that particular plot device. This is a story where a man has to make choices, make decisions, heart or head (and at times it was the second head if you know what I mean), but a man needing to rediscover himself. A man needing to move on from his past and open his eyes and see what this future could possibly be, providing he makes the right choices. Devil or Angel, Devil or Angel, Devil or Angel…who would you choose?

Madison was a really sweet girl, the kind that you wouldn’t hesitate to take home to mum, she is dedicated, hardworking and just darn cute and perfect. But Madison is also a woman that has the potential to destroy him. Dixon could get lost in Madison and this worries and troubles him, he is so conflicted…can he open himself up once again?

Juliet is not relationship material and for Dixon is the safest option, she tends more to his baser, carnal needs and is a minx in the sack. She is quite content with a quick fuck whenever the need arises and they both scratch each others itches. They have had this booty call thing going on for a while but there is something about Juliet…she is definitely the devil in disguise.

“But just so we’re clear, I’m no one’s bitch. You just signed a deal with the devil, sweetheart.”

I loved Dixon and Madison and I hated Juliet with a passion and could have quite easily committed murder, and I loved his friends. There was some fantastic witty banter throughout when these lads got together and it really balanced the book perfectly and had me laughing out loud many a time.

“What greater punishment is there than life when you’ve lost everything that made it worth living?” ~ Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare

This is the first book of a new series and my interest has really been piqued, I desperately want to know what happens going forward and cannot wait to see where Monica James takes this. I’m officially Addicted!!
