Synopsis:

Wedding hookups never amount to anything.

Those who partake in this wicked little activity know the rules. Get in. Get laid. Get out. There’s no expectation of a relationship. It is what it is.

Dylan Sparks knows the rules. She’s familiar with the protocol. And she engages in the best sex of her life with a complete stranger at her ex-boyfriend’s wedding.

Reese Carroll doesn’t care about the rules. He wants more than just one night with Dylan.

And Dylan finds him too addicting to pass up.

Sweet Addiction is the story of one woman’s struggle to keep things casual, and one man’s desire to never let her go.


I’ve been in a mood lately for humorous romances, so I’ve been quickly binge reading J. Daniels’ books. I can’t help myself. Her writing is just so incredibly sexy and witty. I can’t seem to put her books down. Sweet Addiction was no different.

Sweet Addiction is the story of a wedding hookup gone wrong. Or maybe it’s right. Dylan knows a hookup is just a hookup. That’s what it has to be — even if it was the best sex of her life. So after she and hunky Reese hit it in the wedding reception bathroom, she knows that’s the end of their time together. But Reese has other ideas, and he is willing to do anything and everything to make Dylan his.

I absolutely loved Sweet Addiction. It was J. Daniels writing at its best. The dialog was super witty and the sex was off the charts hot. Normally, I like my romances told in dual point of view, but just having Dylan’s first person perspective in this one worked so well. I didn’t even notice Reese’s point of view wasn’t there. I knew what he was thinking simply by Dylan’s experiences.

Dylan and Reese were amusing characters. I loved Dylan’s insecurities about their relationship and what they were to each other. It was fun to see her melt with Reese’s advances. Reese was so freaking hot! I loved his cocky and protective demeanor. I swooned when he brought out his neanderthal ways with Dylan.

Another exciting thing about Sweet Addiction was its side characters. All of them were amazing and brought so much to the story. I especially loved Dylan’s friend Joey. He was hilarious. I want him to be my BFF, too! (And I really want a book about him, J. Daniels!!!)

Sweet Addiction is the perfect book to read if you’re looking for an upbeat, sultry read. Contemporary romance fans will love it. I did, so much so that I’m continuing my J. Daniels binge and jumping into the next book in the series.

  1. This isn’t my usual genre, but every now and again we all need some humor in our books, right? This sounds like such a funny read, and the wedding hookup plot sounds like it could be a recipe for disaster when it comes to the main character avoiding a relationship down the road. Definitely going to have to look into this one, awesome review! =]

    • Thank you! Yes, the plot was so much fun. It’s definitely not something you would normally read, but J. Daniels’ books are perfect for when you need a sexy romantic-comedy. 😉
