SYNOPSIS
 
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. 
 
Sex.
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.
 
 
EXCERPT
 
 
“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.
 
 
 
 
 
FAST TALK WITH ELLA AND BROOKE
 

1. 3 things you never leave home without?

Ella: Phone, wallet, keys

Brooke: A bottle of water, chapstick/lip gloss, and some form of communication 2. Name the last 3 books you have purchased.Brooke: The King by Tiffany Reisz, Made by J.M. Darhower, and a signed copy of The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra ClareElla: A King Undone by Cooper Davis, Succubus on Top by Richelle Mead, and Sempre by J.M. Darhower

3. Your biggest pet peeve?Ella: Being told to talk in a quieter voice. I get loud when excited. It takes away the fun when interrupted and told to speak softly. ~pouts~

Brooke: Most of mine have to do with people being glued to phones in public, whether it’s during a movie or live theatre, at dinner with friends, or while trying to have a one on one conversation. No one’s in the moment anymore.

4. Favorite male body part?

Brooke: Eyes, always. Can height be a body part too? Because I hate being taller than the guy all the time.

Ella: Nice, broad shoulders.

5. Do you believe in love at first sight?

Ella: No. I think you can find someone extremely attractive, but to love a person, I believe you need to know them.

Brooke: No way. To love someone, you need to love all of them, even the ugly parts they don’t want you to see. And at first sight, they definitely aren’t showing off those flaws.

6. Sex on the first date?

Brooke: For my friends? Absofuckinglutely. I love hearing about it afterward. 😉 But for me, probably not. I’m much shyer than I let on.

Ella: No. And not because I’m a prude, I just never have.

7. If you can be any fictional character for a day, who would you want to be?

Ella: Elizabeth Bennett on her wedding day (and night) to Mr. Darcy.

Brooke: Ohhh, good one, Ella. I’m gonna go total potternerd and say any character in Harry Potter. For the butter beer and magic spells, of course.

8. Write a short letter to Santa Claus and show us how it would like.

Brooke: Dear Santa, I’ve been really good for the last twenty minutes that I’ve been writing these answers, so let’s just focus on that, shall we? P.s. – I’ll leave you dark chocolate bacon cupcakes instead of stale cookies this year if you put our book in everyone’s stockings.

Ella: Dear Santa, Just because my name made it to the top of the naughty list does not mean I participated in any kind of shenanigans. I was a good girl, I promise… well okay, maybe not promise, how about…I think? Love & kisses, Ella

 

 
 
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.

 BLP REVIEW ~ TRACY 

addict
vb
1. (Psychiatry) (often foll by: to) to cause (someone or oneself) to become dependent (on something, esp a narcotic drug)
n
2. (Medicine) a person who is addicted, esp to narcotic drugs
3. a person who is devoted to something: a jazz addict.

But I feel, in Evan’s case this is more appropriate…..

addict – To addict originally meant “to award as a slave”; an addict now is a slave to his/her habit, from Latin addictus, which, in Roman law, meant “a debtor awarded as a slave to his creditor.”

I’m a big fan of Ella Frank’s work and was intrigued when I heard she had collaborated with a new author, Brooke Blaine, on a series. When I read what it was about, my interest was definitely piqued!!

We are first introduced to Evan James the morning after a lengthy ‘banging session’ with a mystery blonde, and you get from the 1st chapter that he craves sex in a majorly big way!!!

“The visual mitigated part of the craving deep inside – the one that insisted he reach out and take. And take. And take. Never satisfied. Thirst never quenched.

Mr James is a sex addict who moves from one ‘warm hole’ to another on a very regular basis, no repeats, no relationships, just a very regular, very much needed release that has him at its mercy!!!! This addiction and his decidedly unwise choice of ‘fixes’, has already cost him his job and it seems he’s extremely close to losing everything else as his addiction continues to spiral out of control!!!

When we think or read about addiction, it’s usually along the lines of drug or alcohol addiction. We’ve seen the devastation, pain and misery that these 2 things alone can cause, but ‘A Desperate Man’ gives us a little taste of what an addiction to sex (be it the actual act, self fulfilment in some way – and jeez, does Evan have some interesting ways to ease the NEED – or his constant thoughts about getting off…)
We find out that Evan’s life is on a very bleak path to self destruction…. and it appears he’s got no way of grabbing on to a life line..

One scene in particular lets you see just how far down the rabbit hole Evan has fallen!

But then life throws him a little twist, hell, more of a bloody curve ball…. in the shape of Blondie…. but will this be his salvation or the final step on his path to self-destruction?!?!?!?

I’m not into spoilers or rehashing a story so all I’ll say is – if you’re looking for a story that’s a little different, a bit dark, intriguing and really quite addictive, pick up a copy of ‘A Desperate Man – The Fantasy’ and fall into the world of Evan James – I’ve got a feeling it’s gonna be quite a ride!!!!! 😉
