**Review** Addicted by Alex Lucian

Addiction: the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming. 
 
Ruby was sin and sex.  
 
The ultimate indulgence and worth every penny she cost me. I paid for her body, but didn’t know she’d end up embedded in my soul.  
 
Elias was dark and tempting. 
 
Unmatched in intensity and passion compared to my other clients. He handed me cash in exchange for my touch, and he dug himself into my heart instead.  
Money changes things, firms up the lines of a relationship. But when it becomes an addictionan all-consuming, life-changing addictionthe lines are completely obliterated.

I laughed under my breath before stepping forward and punching the emergency stop button on the elevator.
“What are you doing?” she asked, her eyes wide in her face. Her pale face. Ever since that douche stepped into her space, all the color had been sucked from her skin.
Which is how I knew she was fucking lying to me.
No former client would have given her that kind of reaction. That guy knew her. And not just biblically, but definitely that too, given the crazy-ass gleam in his eyes when he looked at her.
When I didn’t answer right away, she fidgeted, crossing her arms over her stomach and then letting them drop again. Then she swept a hand through her hair, making sure the curls were still laying over one shoulder.
“Beck and call, right?” I rasped out, leaning my shoulder against the wall of the elevator.
“What?”
“You. You’re at my beck and call for these thirty days, right? This being day one.”
She mimicked me, leaning her shoulder against the opposite wall, essentially facing off with me in the small space. “That’s right. Do we need to discuss this now?”
There was a slight edge to her voice that I’d never heard before, and I wasn’t ashamed in the slightest to say that it hardened me even further. “Why not?”
“Because I prefer not to have business discussions when I’m in a box that’s suspended sixteen floors above the ground.”
“We’re not going to have a discussion.” I straightened, undoing my belt. Her eyes tracked the slow movements of my hands.
“I’m not having sex in this elevator.”
“No, you’re not.” I raised one eyebrow, and lifted my chin at her. “You’re going to get on your knees for me. I want to know what your lipstick looks like on my dick.”

Review

I will admit that I have not read the entire tempting series, just book 2, then this one. And this is a complete stand alone so there is no need to read the other’s to fully enjoy this book. And enjoy it I did.

This book is about Elias and Ruby. They begin their “relationship” in an unconventional way-since Ruby is a paid escort. But Ruby is a smart girl. She’s working on yet another degree-being a perpetual student, and this job is something she can do that helps pay the bills. Elias is a man who does not date, he hire’s escorts because they do not get attached. And he does not want attachment.

But as these two get to know each other, they begin to develop feelings for each other that they simply cannot deny-even though Ruby tried. And that was the only part of the book that I did not like, when she tried to push him away.

I did feel that the ending could have been more…..I don’t know, conclusive? But over all I enjoyed these character’s. This was an ARC copy so there were a few grammatical errors but they were not overwhelming to the telling of the story. All in all, I give this 4 WickedGoodStars and would definitely recommend this book:)
