BookWhisperer's Rating: 

My name is Slade Merrick and I’m a f*cking sex addict . . .

I’ve been told it’s a problem. But I see it as a passion; something that I’m good at. And who the f*ck stops something that they’re good at?

They want me to seek help; get my c*ck in check. Don't judge my lifestyle. You’re no better than me. Just admit it, you like to f*ck too. Sex is what I do best; my own personal high, so I embrace it instead of being ashamed.

When I'm not f*cking, I'm slinging drinks at Walk Of Shame or stripping my way into your bed; another thing I'm good at. Every woman’s darkest fantasy brought to life.

So, am I stopping? F*ck no. Sex is beautiful, raw and erotic and I get off knowing I can have it with anyone I want . . . with the exception of her.


She walks into the club swaying those hips, instantly drawing my c*ck to attention. She’s pure perfection. That is, until she opens that mouth, drawing me in and for the first time in forever I want something more than sex. I want her and she hates it.

Things get dirty. Dirty is what I like; it’s how I live. But . . . she’s playing a game she can never win.

My first thought of this book was that it was very formulated.  There was an attractive, stuck-on-himself kind of guy that could get any girl that he blinked at except this one particular girl.  And yes, that is how the story goes.  Slade is that self-absorbed man, who is handsome, and has a string of girls tagging along because word on the street is that he is that good and Aspen wants nothing to do with him, which attracts him to her even more. 

I would say most of this book is what you would find in other books minus one huge detail.  Slade wasn’t always Slade and once I pasted that point in the book, this discover opened his character up to me and made me realize just how human he truly was and is.  I didn’t see this twist until the author laid it on me.  So this is where I am…a plot that is like other books but a twist that made me say out loud, “I didn’t see that coming at all!”
