You know the story.
Boy meets girl, they fall in love, two kids, white picket fence.
This isn’t that story.
This is more like . . .
Man meets woman. Man sleeps with woman.
Man meets another woman, sleeps with her.
And so on. You get the idea.
I own a small boutique hotel in New Orleans, the Kingston. I’ve seen men do some stupid stuff in the name of the woman they love, or at least the woman they love for the night.
That’s not me. I’m always in control. You’d be surprised how much you can get away with on just good manners and a smile. It’s the only way to keep my secrets safely locked away.
And my smile hides a lot. Until her.
She turns me down flat. Playing hard to get is my favorite game. It’s the thrill of the chase.
Only problem is, I think it’s me that’s getting caught.
Dr. Lorraine laughs and pulls out her prescription pad. Scribbling something, she turns it to me. The title reads: The sex diet.
I bust out laughing. “You’re writing me a sex prescription.”
“Sort of,” she says. “You ever gone on a diet before?”
“The thing with diets is, you usually start off strict.”
“How did I know that?”
“No touching by either party, not even kissing.”
“Wait, not even a hand job?” I ask.
“You’ve got your own hands. Use them.”
She writes jerking off on her script pad, then puts a checkmark beside it. This is the craziest shit.
“Once a day as needed,” she says, writing that down.
“I’ll never make it.”
“How many times do you want?” she asks.
“At least twice, morning and before bed.”
She shakes her head. “Okay, twice a day,” she says and points her pencil at me. “That’s it.”
“I really don’t think I need . . .”
“You won’t be released from therapy until I’m satisfied you’ve completed this,” she says.
She has me by the balls, and she knows it. I can’t believe I’m being forced to agree to this, but what choice do I have? “I haven’t had sex in a couple days. Can I get credit for that?”
“No,” she laughs out. “Start fresh today.”
“What about it?”
“Can I use it?” I ask.
“You don’t have enough memories to sustain you?” she asks.
She gets to her feet and sticks out her hand. “Good luck.”
Shaking her hand and smiling, I’m sure I’ve got this.
I bite the inside of my mouth, realizing the old lady has tricked me. It’s Thursday. I’m not seeing her again until Tuesday.
That’s five days! Shit, what have I done?

Kim’s rating: 4 of 5 iScream Cones
This story took me on a viscous ride of emotions. From despise to angst. Euphoria to despair. I found empathy within each character and their pasts that restrain them from true happiness.
As you begin this story, you discover Pierce is a playboy. It starts with his POV and how he knows how to deal with women and that he loves women but he fears the commitment some expect and keeps his emotional distance.
We then meet his family and friends and discover he isn’t such an ass the we expect a playboy to be. Annie, his best friend since 6 years old, has had his back, kept him in check and kept his secrets. She is the one that sets him in the path of love with Sutton.
Sutton!! The determinate beautiful confident women who doesn’t play his games. She is the women that might break Pierce.
As we fall in love with these characters we find out their secrets and that these secrets have broken souls and turn people into puppets and playthings.
I loved the ending and how she finished it originally is perfect I would highly recommend stopping where she wanted to stop. If you love extremely HEA and you need answers then you can read the epilogue. But I was extremely happy with her last sentence.
