As usual, keeping secrets leads to trouble but along the way there are some very imaginative BDSM scenes one great one using pearls in an unorthodox way.
Only down sides are occasional editing mistakes like some where instead of somewhere. And, of course the end is not complete, leading to the next book in the trilogy. Not a cliffhanger, but needs completion.

Rachael Orman takes addiction to a whole new level. Reading Addict was an eye-opening and insightful experience. Sex addiction is often dismissed or laughed off and not seen as psychological disorder. Rachael Orman presents sex addiction in Alix as a compulsion, something she’s helpless against, a pressure that builds until it’s uncontainable and must be satisfied even if it requires putting herself in perilous situations. Alix feels helpless, damaged, and incapable of leading a normal life or even daring to dream of a healthy relationship because of her condition. Her agony is stark and twisted, full of poignant sadness and yearning. Alix seeks help but quickly loses faith that she can overcome. As the plot progressed Alix’s emotions become a whirlwind of uncertainty and something like hope.
Addict is blunt, shocking, graphic, made of pure desire and spoken wants. There’s startling scenes that will leave you blushing and bashful because they feel forbidden, taboo, and in some cases, too raunchy to be true. Alix’s actions at her desk and the subsequent reactions by John are a heady combination of embarrassing and exhilarating.
John is sexy, dominant and exhibits extreme control. He wields his sexuality with the prowess of a fierce predator. He knows what he wants and
takes it. John wants to help Alix, she’s a temptation he can’t resist and what he feels is overwhelming. When he becomes Master J, holy hotness.
The scenes are graphic and told from both perspectives so you get both sides of their pleasure.
Together Alix and John are discovering each other through a safe combination of pleasure and pain. Alix finds peace of mind in subspace and John gains salvation learning what an emotional connection can bring to his lonely. John heals from his past through his interactions with Alix. BDSM scenes aren’t too detailed that they read like step-by-step instructions, they flow smoothly and are full of tantalizing tension.
John and Alix’s backstories are mentioned but it never goes into great detail. There are hints that lead to sexual abuse etc., but the reader is left with gapping holes where those explanations should be. These memories would have shed light on both of their personalities and maybe even strengthened them; instead, their absence brought confusion and speculation that wasn’t satisfied.
Secondary characters have little purpose and barely function at all in the story. They’re fleeting and forgettable.
John’s insistence on keeping his past and job a mystery was understandable but to an extent. Eventually it became an annoyance and there wasn’t a reason to continue such cloak and dagger antics.

She has tried to manage the way she is and to handle the cravings that possess her soul but therapy has failed to provide a remedy that she can live with.
Her body rules her mind and because of that she often feels nothing but remorse but sex is the means to an end, the who and where bear no consequence to her. Does she feel shame – yes but can she resolve that –no.
Although Master J may be the answer to her prayers but she doesn’t know it yet. Master J is John the sex therapist from the first book in the series and John knows what buttons to push and when. He is a dominant man who when he sees Alix at the local BDSM club, is floored by the desire to have her to himself.
He creates a scenario where he is able to confront her, yet maintain his anonymity, he orders her to return to the club the following night – specifically for him. She is to ask for him by name Master J and they will find out then if what he is what she needs – I have a feeling that there are few that would turn him down!
John is a complicated character, he exercises complete control in his own sexual encounters but exudes empathy with others when providing his own special brand of therapy. His own disposition for inflicting pain is as far removed from what I had anticipated, it actually floored me for a moment.
But is he what he seems or is he really too good to be true? What will Alix do if she finds out who he really is and can the secrets that remain between them be overcome, will they emerge together and intact?
There are so many questions that this sexy as sin book left me with a need to know exactly what the hell I had let myself in for – I opened a door that I haven’t got the will or inclination to close because it is seriously hot inside and I am willing to get my fingers burnt waiting for the next book.
