Addict by Rachael Orman Blog Tour

My name is Alix and I am addicted to sex.
Had been for years. I thought I learned how to live a normal life, but that’s the thing about addiction, it creeps back up when you least expect it. There is no one there for me, no one I can turn to for help. Until I’m given a chance to explore a side of myself I’d always kept locked away. I was lost…until him. I can’t tell you who he is, or why he does the things he’s done. All I can say is I hope one day I behave well enough to take off the blindfold and see the man who controls my addiction. My Master.

My name is John and I am addicted to control.
I tried to deny the dominate side of my personality. I didn’t want to admit how much I enjoyed the power, how much I enjoyed causing pain. That is until the woman I’d been secretly been stalking waltzed into a BDSM club right in front of me. All bets are off. She will be mine.

Together our addictions feed off each other, fueling the fire that burns within. Until suddenly the fire is too hot to handle, burning everything in its path. The pain and scars we’d both come into our fragile relationship with are split wide open, exposing more than either of us can handle, possibly leaving nothing behind to salvage from the ashes.

This is the first book I've read by Rachael Orman, and I was pleasantly surprised!
I really liked the blurb and couldn't wait to see how this was executed.
We meet Alix, a self-professed Sex-Addict, while she's at work (at an upscale hotel). She's seated at her desk, in her office, and watching an extremely sexy guest who's walking to his room. She's not only watching him, but "massaging" herself – and notices he's watching her! I just want to say that this scene right here TOTALLY sold me on this story. It's sexy, it's scintillating, and completely intriguing.

Upon Alix visiting a BDSM club, she's discovered by a secret Dominant and finds that she's excited by being “mastered.” Not knowing who this man is leads to exhilarating scenes of submission, learning to trust, learning about herself and her true needs, and ultimately falling in love.

Overall, this story was exciting and sexy. I liked Alix, and found myself lusting for the Dom :) and I just couldn't put the book down. I did have some issues with the secrecy, but overall this was an entertaining read!

This is the first book I have read by Rachael Orman but it will NOT be my last! Alix is a sex addict and has been for years, she has had it under control for several years now, until she sees John. John is a dominant and a control freak, he notices Alix and has for a while but she doesn’t know that. A chance outing to a BDSM club with a co-worker and Alix finds what she needs in Master J. When John sees Alix walk into the BDSM club he knows he has to have her. This is one seriously hot book and the story is good as well. This book brought me out of my book slump and I can’t wait for the next book, I only hope my wait isn’t too long.

Characters: The characters were well written and believable.
Sex: Yes and so flipping hot!!
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: BDSM/Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

Have you ever really thought about what addiction was? It could be drugs, gambling, even shopping but you rarely think of sex as an addiction. But that is what Alix is, a sex addict. She has been through treatment before but the compulsions her body has, she just has to get release. But when she is done, the guilt and embarrassment sets in. She sees the most gorgeous man she has even seen at work and she finds herself fantasizing about him. When she goes out with a coworker, they end up at a BDSM club. While the coworker is in shock, Alix feels almost at peace, like she is home. When she comes out of the restroom, she is grabbed but not in a threatening way. The man tells her to come back tomorrow night and to tell the front desk she is there for Master J. What will she do? She shows up because she wants what he seems to be offering. Can she handle it when she finds out who Master J is? Master J is John the sex therapist we met in Lost Desires. Here he will get his chance and hopefully he can hang on to it. I hate the ending because I need more NOW. This is one of those stories that had me hooked from the very first page and I can't wait for more.

This follows on from a novella called Lost Cravings, which introduces us to the work life of the male lead here, John. It is not necessary to read it first, but it is a great little read, so I would recommend it to you.

Addict is a quick, intense and extremely hot story, which ends leaving one wanting more ... and more is promised! It is told by both the lead characters, which works well, and gives us insight into how things may develop, and certainly into some of their issues! The BDSM elements are used well, and some issues arise which I am sure will feature in later books. I am hopeful that Ms. Orman is not celebrating Christmas too much and plans on getting the nest installment out very soon...

Mother by day. Writer by night. I spend a majority of my day with my children and reading while my nights are filled with the sound of the keyboard as I work on my next work.

I have written in F/F, F/F/M, F/F/F and then of course F/M genres.... So, beware, I do not always have the most 'traditional' scenes. And one day I will venture into M/M, just have to find the time.

I love to try new things and learn from every piece of work I write. I'll write just about anything once to learn from it. I've even ventured out of my normal erotica genre into Monster Erotica. Doubt you'll find me writing anything not erotic as you can barely get me to even read something out of that category, but then again, you never know what I might try next.

Never stop learning. Try everything at least once.
