Addiction (Addiction, #1) by Vivian Wood
Publication Date: September 14, 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance
It started innocently enough. Beautiful Harper gave Sean those eyes… those eyes that meant, yes, take me. But Harper didn’t know Sean’s secrets… She didn’t know that he liked it rough.
More than rough. He liked to dominate. To punish. To degrade. It was the only way that the black hole in his soul wouldn’t swallow him up.
He would push her a little too far, and she would run. They all ran, eventually.
But that’s not what happened… when he put his hands around her throat and squeezed, Harper moaned. When he told her to stay away, she didn’t listen, misbehaving until she got spanked. When he took out the handcuffs, there was excitement in her eyes, mixed with a little fear.
The doe-eyed redhead liked it. More than that, she wanted it. She said so, time and again.
That’s the thing about sexy strangers, though… you never know what they’re hiding. And Harper is carrying a burden so heavy that even Sean’s secrets pale in comparison.
This book is Book 1 out of 2 in the Addicted To You duet. At approximately 50,000 words, it ends in a cliffhanger. As a dark romance, it touches several sensitive topics, but contains no cheating. Book 2 will end in a happily ever after.

Sean paused. “Are you certain you want to go in?” he asked.
He turned to look at her to see her swallow. Harper nodded. He couldn’t get a read on her.
“Speak up,” he said. “Was that a ‘yes, sir’?”
Harper fluttered her lashes and looked down. “Y—yes. Yes, sir,” she said obediently. Quietly.
Fuck, the things she could do. “You make me so fucking hard,” he said. Her eyes shot open.
Sean took her hand and led her through the heavy wooden door. It closed behind them with a loud click. He removed his bowtie and watched her survey the room. “Get undressed.”
Without a pause, she started to kick off her shoes.
“Leave them on,” he instructed. Sean sat back in a black leather seat. Harper peeled off the dress and let it fall to the floor.
As she stepped out of the fallen latex, in just a lace thong and matching bra, he couldn’t believe her dimensions. She had a tiny waist, a wasp’s waist, as if she’d been in waist-training for years. Her hip bones jutted out like fins before angling down to slender thighs and shapely calves.
“Right now, right here in this room, you exist solely for my pleasure,” he said. “You’re here to please me in whatever way I see fit.” He stopped himself, aware of his quickened breath. Sean raised a brow. “Get on with it.”

Laura's rating: 4 of 5 iScream Cones
Addiction is the first book that I have read by Vivian Wood and it most certainly will not be my last. Talk about an angsty, roller coaster ride of emotions. Not to mention the erotic aspect to it. I thought the storyline was well written and engaging. The characters kept me engaged no matter how flawed they were. The subject matter may be a little much for some. The title says it all.
Addiction: the fact or condition of being addicted to a particular substance, thing, or activity.
Sean is a recovering alcoholic, six months sober. An accident involving himself and his best friend finds him in court-mandated rehab and then he is moved to a half-way house. Now he takes it one day at a time, trying to get through without a drink. He spends his time working as a tattoo artist. Sean grew up with money, something that he cares little about. He lives a simple life and that is how he likes it. It helps him keep the demons at bay. Being alone is the one thing that works best for him right now. When a group of friends comes into the shop for tattoos, Sean meets Harper. He feels such a strong connection to her and wants to learn more about her. But will she be able to handle the darkness that surrounds him? One addiction is traded for another and Sean finds himself immersed in Harper. The Dom side of him sees a sub, Harper is so responsive to his command and needs, more so than others he has shown this side of himself too. What Sean doesn't know is that Harper has secrets, secrets that may just put an end to what they are trying to build together.
If you are looking for an angsty, sexy hot read, then this is the book for you. If you are one who does not like cliffy's then don't say I didn't warn you. I for one do not mind them and cannot wait for the next book in this series!
