“Charlotte Stein is like a master seducer. She writes with the intent to tease, to arouse, to tempt. The sex scenes are long, but never drawn out and readers always feel intensely satisfied in the end.”
~ Under the Covers
There’s always reason to rejoice when Charlotte Stein releases a new book. In ADDICTED, a shy and awkward librarian named Kit Conner harbors some wicked fantasies that she likes to explore in the novel she is writing. But when her friend points out her writing lacks believability, Kit attends an Sexual Healing group to further expand her knowledge. There she meets the sex-loving, hot as hell Dillon Holt. As with all of Stein’s writing, things heat up quickly, but there is so much more to this book than just the stellar sex!
ADDICTED opens up with a sexually charged scene from Kit’s book. It’s a glimpse into Kit’s mind and gives readers a taste of the naughtiness that will soon come. I particularly loved the last sentence where it sets up the perfect opportunity to meet Kit.
It’s not surprise that Dillon is a bad boy. The big arms, the tattoos and his charm all come in a welcoming package that Kit cannot resist. Her awkwardness is both hilarious and endearing and Stein does a fantastic job of really getting into her heroine’s head and writing a POV that is fun and charming. Reading about Kit seemed almost effortless on my part.
Another great thing about this book is the humor. I’ve read a ton of erotic romances before but Stein doesn’t simply explore the sex in her books. She also spends a considerable amount of time building a relationship from the ground up. The romance is always strong and I think the humor in the books play a huge part in creating that bond. Dillon and Kit both have quotes that had my laughing out loud:
“Hey, calm down, OK? My penis isn’t going to suddenly lunge at your face.”
“It feels like you dropped your nightstick down your pants.”
“Oh, so that’s where that went.”
“I’m not kidding. Is this all you? Because if so, I think I may need to rethink a few things. I may need to rethink the shape and depth of my vagina.”
It makes sense that humor would be a major part of a romance and I love the way Stein is able to integrate this into her writing time and time again.
Now for the serious bit – the sex. Charlotte Stein is like a master seducer. She writes with the intent to tease, to arouse, to tempt. The sex scenes are long, but never drawn out and readers always feel intensely satisfied in the end. If you’re looking for a filthy read with a well-rounded story, do yourself a favor and pick up any Charlotte Stein book. Simply put, Stein is the Queen of Smut.
What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
