Sweet Addiction by J Daniels
(Sweet Addiction #1)
Publication date: May 2nd 2014
Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance
Wedding hookups never amount to anything.
Those who partake in this wicked little activity know the rules. Get in. Get laid. Get out. There’s no expectation of a relationship. It is what it is.
Dylan Sparks knows the rules. She’s familiar with the protocol. And she engages in the best sex of her life with a complete stranger at her ex-boyfriend’s wedding.
Reese Carroll doesn’t care about the rules. He wants more than just one night with Dylan. And he’s too addicting to pass up.
Sweet Addiction is the story of one girl’s struggle to keep things casual, and one boy’s desire to never let her go.
What Rhea Thought:
I knew by just reading the blurb that this book was going to be right up my alley. And the cover is just absolute amazeballs.
And Miss Daniels has made me more than happy.
Dylan Sparks is a baker. Correction: She’s an amazing baker with an ex-boyfriend’s wedding to attend. And she’s not there by choice—the fact that she’s made the cake for the function requires her presence. And there she’s only looking to have “slutty wedding sex.”
Reese Carroll does not do “love.” He fucks and when the girls get too clingy, they have to go. He’s a hot accountant who has it all. Or so he thinks, until Dylan falls into his lap. Literally.
The men’s room is put to good use and it’s just a wham, bam, thank-you ma’am. And the sex is ah-mazing for both of them. Life changing-ly good.
The fact that the bride cheats on the groom during the reception is only an added bonus.
And then Dylan finds a letter from Reese in her bakery and life is never the same for either of them. A relationship based purely on sex begins.
There were times I could distinctly feel Reese—the womanizer—pushing for more, but Dylan—the relationship seeker—kept him an arm’s length away. One of the strategies she uses is the No Sleepover rule. It was a bit silly, in my opinion, but seeing as how her recently married ex had cheated on her, thereby leaving her wanting to run away from the entire concept of love, I can see why she’d do that
Reese is an absolute God. He’s an alpha, but he’s also a sexy closet romantic. He goes all the way but again, it’s Dylan that resists.
There’s a series of drunken nights, some burglary and an angry ex but the only thing I didn’t appreciate is the heaps of miscommunication that takes place here.
I’m no fan of the whole react-badly-then-apologize scene. But that happened here. Like, a lot. Also the end was just one big misunderstanding. The reunion was bliss to read but so much drama could be avoided if both parties would just talk it out.
But, even with the silly drama, the book is an absolute must read. It’s one of those books I devoured in one sitting and laughed through most of the book. I loved the supporting cast—the gay best friend and the wedding planner best friend with their hilarious banter—and they provided really good comic relief to the book. The sex is steamy and Reese makes it to an 8 on the swoon-o-meter 😀
