Review | Dirty Dix (A Hard Love Romance Book 1) ~ Monica James


Tell me your deepest, darkest secrets. I dare you.
Addiction comes down to one simple, primitive concept. Desire. 

My name is Dr. Dixon Matthews, and I'm New York’s finest shrink. For $500 an hour, people tell me their darkest, most sinful secrets. 
My own addiction? Sex. 
I might be certified in solving other people’s problems, but not mine – I know I'm a lost cause. I don’t do relationships. I don’t even do the same woman twice. 
But that’s all about to change, thanks to two entirely different women who awaken my deepest desires. 

Who will I choose? 

I know who I should choose, but I never said I was the hero of this story, or even the good guy. And besides, who wants to be good, when it feels so good being bad
My tale isn't for the faint-hearted. If you’re game, strap yourself in and expect the unexpected. But don’t say I didn't warn you… 

Achingly sexy and highly addictive, the first in the Sinful Pleasures Series will have you hooked. Driven to Sin coming very soon…

Addicted To Sin has me thinking so many things, I really don't know where to start with this review!

I'm not even sure why I had this on my kindle as it isn't my usual genre of book, but having read a few samey samey chick-lits, I needed something different (and I don't do horror well!), so this caught my eye and oh my... this book...

Right from the first page I was utterly gripped. I loved that this book was primarily from Dixon's point of view with just one or two chapters from Madeline.

Dixon is a psychiatrist, specialising in helping people with addictions, he also has his own addiction in sex. He was once in love with Lily but she's now with one of his best friends and since then, Dixon has no interest in relationships.

Juliet arrives at Dixon's office for help with her own sex addiction but it quickly becomes obvious there is some attraction between the pair, but, during a night out Dixon meets Madison when he comes to her rescue and there is something between them too but its much deeper than with Juliet.

Both girls have dark backgrounds and whilst Juliet is happy to sleep her way through her troubles, Madison is a closed book, which intrigues Dixon even more.

Soon enough, Dixon can't get Madison out of his head but events put obstacles in their way and he ends up in a sex driven relationship with Juliet.

I feel like I had a bit of a love/hate relationship with Dixon. He was an utter git at times, referred to as a man whore in the book but after eventually deciding that he wanted to be with Madison, he thinks with his brain and not his man-hood and ditches Juliet, and comes up trumps when Madison needs him the most.

However... not is all as it seems. Madison has a dislike to her step-sister, whom we know as Beth and when Dixon meets her his life becomes complicated once again as her real name isnt Beth and its a face he is familiar with, then as she starts to blackmails him, he is again left with having to choose between the two girls...

Addicted To Sin was a fast paced book - yes there was a lot of sex and graphic details but the base line story was gripping and I found myself not being able to put the book down wanting to know what Dixon does next. There were humorous conversations between Dixon and his mates and the chapters from
Madison's point of view broke the drama up a little.

If you can get past sexual paragraphs and some crude language then I urge to to read Addicted To Sin.. the ending though. Oh Gosh... leaving it open like that has completely got my brain working on how the story will pan out... Book 2, Driven To Sin cannot come quick enough!!
