Ten years before Lola Winters met him on the sidewalk in front of Hey Joe, Beau Olivier signed a contract that would deliver the first millions of his future fortune. All he wanted to do was celebrate with a beautiful woman—and no strings attached.
He entered Cat Shoppe on the Sunset Strip looking for anyone, but when he saw the kitten-eared girl on the strip club’s main stage, he knew he wouldn't leave without her.
Addiction is a bonus short story from Beau's point of view about what really happened that night. Recommended to be enjoyed after the end of the series. Contains spoilers for the previous books.
Love the brief glimpse of Beau’s backstory. Can’t wait to see it develop and intertwine further in to the series.
Disappointed. I wanted more! 😩
This was so insanely short. I felt like it was more like a chapter that had been left out of the series. The series is absolutely intoxicating.
Hands down the most infuriating series I have ever read. I read all 5 books including book 2.5 from Beau’s perspective. It was a rollercoaster. This author incorporated control, dominance, pride, insecurity, fear, hate, vengeance, rage, revenge, jealousy, superiority complexes, narcissism, forgiveness, self realization, love and a host of other emotions in this series. In my honest opinion the series doesn’t start to pick up until almost the very end of book 2- Domination. That is where you see crossroads, decisions and real emotion. Prior to that I spent my time battling whether or not I even wanted to finish the series. That was most because Beau, the male protagonist was easily the worst character I have ever read about (so unlikeable). He was the kind of guy that you’d warned your friend to stay away from and although it is a book, it was difficult to digest that anyone could be that deplorable. And he remained that way.. until he didn’t. I consider my strong reaction to him a testament to the authors depth in creating her characters and overall the author did an excellent job of allowing the reader to see the transformation he went through. I really loved that although this story carried a large power imbalance from the very beginning, at the end the female protagonist found herself. That’s refreshing for this genre of literature and while I did not at all feel like this was a romance series for the majority of my reading, (it felt like everything but love and romance in the traditional sense) and couldn’t see how the author would be able to spin it that way with very few chapters left - I ended the final book feeling like I’d read about a real love story with a true happy ending. One of my complaints is the constant use of certain words that I found to be offensive. The profanity was one thing but some of the other word choices were extreme to say the least. Overall, the series was good.
