*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
Being a huge fan of the Alabama Summer Series, I was ecstatic to have the opportunity to review Sweet Addiction. This one has been on my TBR list for quite a while now and I couldn’t wait to dive in. And can we talk about that cover for a minute? Gorgeous! It looks fun, flirty, and [I have no shame] kind of yummy. I had high hopes that this book would prove to be all those things as well.
Following the awkward attendance of her cheating ex-boyfriend’s wedding, Dylan is ready to partake in some “slutty wedding sex” and gets up close and personal with Reese, who she meets through her friend Juls’ boyfriend. As their encounters continue past the reception, Dylan is convinced that she wants to keep things “monogamously casual” with Reese, who doesn’t do serious relationships anyway, but it’s harder than she thinks. The sex between them is scorching hot, their connection is undeniable.
Dylan and Reese, along with their friends, are a dirty, dirty bunch and are so. Much. Fun. The sexual tension, teasing words, and dirty mouths you’ll find in this book are something else. Grab a fan and a cool drink before starting this one, ladies! Some of these scenes are HOT! One thing’s for sure, this author knows how to write a smoking hot book boyfriend. Holy crap. Each leading man is better than the last. After starting off with the Alabama Summer boys, I wouldn’t have thought any others could compare, but REESE? Reese gives them a run for their money. Boy, does he ever.
As for Dylan, she’s a great heroine. A little naive where Reese and her feelings are concerned, but a really tough chick. She’s witty, fun, and never hesitates to tell someone off when they deserve it. And the moment when she finally comes to terms with how strong her feelings towards Reese are, well it was heartbreakingly lovely, and I went all in right along with her.
As always, this author writes characters that are authentic and well-developed. These are characters you’ll want to be friends with, ones that will work their way into your heart and you’ll be sure to miss when you’ve turned the last page.
This book was fantastic. Daniels has become one of my absolute favorite authors and the stories she writes– not to mention the guys– make such an impact on me as a reader. I will not soon forget any of her characters, and the ones in Sweet Addiction are no exception. And what a fitting title. I was attached to this book from the moment I picked it up and didn’t stop until I devoured every word. I laughed, I cried, and then I laughed some more. The dialogue was engaging, witty, and heartfelt. The characters were captivating, and the ending turned me into a big ball of crying mush. The only thing making me glad to be finished is knowing that I can now continue on with the series. Grab this book as soon as you can– grab every one of this author’s books.
