About The Book

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 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.”

What I Thought


I seriously LOVE this Tempting Series by Alex Lucian! Like seriously!

Elias is a successful photo journalist. He is very well travelled and great at his job. Six years later, Elias is still mourning the death of his best friend, his sister. Even after blaming Nathan (his ex brother in law) for her death, Elias is certain he doesn’t want to experience that level of heartache, ever, so he chooses to satisfy his needs paying escorts, therefore not establishing any sort of connection with anyone and risking getting hurt. Until Ruby

Ruby is a a serial student, coming to the end of her second masters degree. Not knowing what to do as a career, Ruby just keeps on starting a new degree.  But, like most students, the cost of studying and living is overwhelming,  so for the past two years, she has been working as a paid escort. The night she meets Elias, she feels different to how she normally does around her clients. He is gorgeous and so sexy and she wants him so bad! The feeling is mutual.

The few hours they are together blows both of their minds. They are so sexually compatible and attracted to each other, that after the night is over, they each can’t stop thinking of each other. With Elias having many work events approaching and needing someone to take with him, he has the great idea of hiring Ruby for thirty days straight. To do what he wants with, whenever he wants, for fifteen grand. Ruby agrees to his offer, that amount of money hugely helping her finances. So with a sexy lady on his arm for work events, then that same sexy lady in his bed to do with as he pleases, no strings attached, this seems like the perfect plan. WRONG. Nothing is ever that simple. Throw in a bit of confusion, some blurred lines, an ex and some jealousy, then we have the makings of yet another super sexy novel from Alex Lucian.

Both Elias and Ruby are self sufficient characters. Both confidant in everything they do. They are both hugely independent, relying on no one but themselves. They are both super intelligent and gorgeous. Two characters with characteristics so similar that they shouldn’t be compatible or work on any level. But Elias and Ruby defy the odds. Connecting on so many levels.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from Elias going into this book. After encountering him in previous books in the Tempting series, I thought he was a bit of a tool. Turns out he’s actually not. He was just hugely devastated by the loss of his sister and struggling to move on. Ruby helped him start moving along. To stop being so guarded.

Reading from the male and female point of view, helps you engage in the story lines and panty melting sexy times, which there are a lot of. Oh and plenty of colourful language. I will advise if you don’t like books with lots of sex and f bombs, don’t read Addicted. Or actually the whole Tempting series! But you will be missing out on some great writing and creative, captivating books. 

I did find that in the beginning, not much was happening, but you could feel the anticipation of the upcoming storylines building and it was well worth the wait. 

So overall another immense story from Alex Lucian. I however only have eyes for Nathan, but Elias came in a very VERY close second.
