Fantasies - we all have them.
For some it’s their dream job; others want the wedding, the 2.5 kids, the white picket fence.
My fantasies are a bit more...depraved.
Dark and sinful, they have destroyed relationships and my livelihood, yet I still submit to them like a slave.

For most, it’s a natural expression of love, caring, or lust.
But there are those of us who can’t stop once we’ve had a taste.
Those of us who don’t want to.
And the shame of that never-ending cycle will eat us alive...

My name is Evan James, and I am a sex addict.


“Come here.” 

Evan James crooked his finger at the blonde currently shimmying back into her minuscule, tight, black dress. The same one she’d worn last night that had called like a siren’s song to his cock in the middle of the dimly lit club. 

She looked over at him with heavy-lidded eyes and held the barely there fabric still around her waist. His eyes zoomed in on the impressive breasts overflowing out of her sheer, black bra. Covered, but not enough. 

His mouth watered, and he wanted to drag her back to the bed and take hold of her ripe nipple before pulling the fabric down and out of his way to take her fully into his mouth again. 

After having had her so many times in the last few hours, she’d no doubt taste of him on every inch of her soft skin. He liked that. Before, she’d tasted faintly of vanilla musk—a fragrance he wasn’t overly fond of. He’d made quick, dirty work of her though, marking and leaving his scent on her with his lips, his sex, his come, and he figured one last go-round before sending her on her way would suppress his craving for at least a couple of days. 

He hoped. His appetite was voracious. 

“Can’t get enough, can you?” She leaned down over the edge of the bed and placed her hands there, giving him an ample view of what he wanted. Now. 

He narrowed his eyes. “Don't play with me.” 

Blondie tsked and put her knees on the mattress, crawling on all fours toward him. “Oh, baby, I told you you’d never want me to leave once you got inside.” 

She was right about that much. If he could live in pussy, he would. It was his weakness, his addiction, the one thing he’d give up anything and everything for. And he nearly had.

Evan James is - as we already learned in the blurb - a sex addict.
That's what basically ruined his life 8 months ago.
The only things he has left now are his apartment and his car.
And his sex addict-ways are nowhere near stopping. He goes out almost every night and he never has problems finding willing ladies - not in a huge city like New York.
Having lost his job 8 months ago, means that he is almost out of money.
But things might change for the better - he has a job interview.
But of course it couldn't be as easy as just going in, getting the job, start building up his life again.
Nope - his new boss is the blonde girl he spend a wild night with a few days ago. The one who he can't get out of his head and his fantasies - however much and with however many girls he tries.
But of course there's a NO TOUCH policy at work.
And his addiction is getting worse with every day he has to see her at work......


NOPE . . .
I'm not telling you

Well - ok - there's not a real cliffhanging Cliffhanger!☺
But we will definitely want to hear more from Evan!!!!



I really had no idea what to expect when I started reading.
I thought - ok - this sex addict will be effing around all over the place, and we won't like him much. Maybe there will be a nice girl who will finally make him fall in love with her bla bla.
And yeah - it's some of that - he does eff around A LOT!
And yeah - there's also this girl. She's not this typical nice and innocent girl though. She's kinda like Evan - she goes out at night looking for one-night-stands.
But once they meet, things start to change - at least for Evan they do.

I really enjoyed the story - short as it was :/
It was extremely sexy and a bit sad and moving and the reader really likes Evan - at least I did. We feel sorry for him and for whatever happened in his past - both his long-ago past and his more recent job-losing-past ☺

THE FANTASY was a really sexy and interesting Novella!
You will sooo not waste your money when you one-click it ☺☺☺
You'll fall in love with Evan too!!!

Now I can't wait for Vol. II  -  I want to know how the story of Evan & Reagan will continue.


Advanced copy received for an honest review

I wasn't sure I was going to like Evan James when I read the blurb.  Sex addict - is this going to mean he was a complete douchebag too?

I couldn't have been more wrong.  Yes, he is a sex addict, yes, he sleeps around, but I was so not expecting The Fantasy to take the route it did.

The dynamic between Evan and Reagan is intriguing.  They are both so strong willed and know what they are after, yet together they are a force to be reckoned with!

I loved that we got to see the side of Evan that struggles each and every day - after losing practically everything 8 months earlier, things could have gone a different way.

The Fantasy is a quick read, and part of a series.  You will get caught up in the whirlwind that is Evan and Reagan, and like me will be left wanting to know more about them.

Can't wait for the next part!




Ella Frank is a #1 Amazon Bestselling Author. She writes both contemporary and erotic fiction and is best known for her Exquisite Series, and Temptation Series. 

The minute she began her love affair with reading, she became and avid supporter of the romance genre and has never looked back. 

Ella is Australian born and bred but currently resides in Houston, Texas with her husband.


You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read; she used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her ‘quiet time.’ Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she now carries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.

Her first solo novel, a romantic comedy, is due out in early 2015, but first, she thought she’d write a raunchy story with her best friend that would scar her conservative southern family for life.

If you’d like to get in touch with her, she’s easy to find - just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone that’s dominated her cell phone for ten years.
