Addiction by Shantel Tessier
Series: Seven Deadly Sins #1
Genres: Romantic Suspense

I’m a sinner with no regrets.

I’m a man with no shame.

I’m a lover with no soul.

What am I?

You’re a loner with no friends.

You’re a beggar with no place to go.

You’re a face with no name.

Who are you?

It doesn’t really matter what I am or who you are. Everyone has sin in common. But I pride myself on doing it better. Through the eyes of another, I am envied. If they only knew the wrath I have endured. Greed can be a motherfucker, but it is what makes us strive to be better. Lust
can make you burn, but without it you would freeze to death. Some of us are a glutton for punishment and want to feel the pain that reminds us we’re still alive rather than overcome by sloth.

The lure of these seven deadly sins is like an addiction. And I intend to indulge in each of these unforgivable sins.

My Review

This is told from three different POVs which makes it unique in my opinion. You get both Taylor and Case but you also get Taylor’s brother Blane. this added an additional layer that really helped the story along. Case was full of mystery and sex appeal. With his tattoos he had the whole bad boy thing down.

Taylor of course felt an instant attraction to him but was trying to steer clear of him. For Case he simply couldn’t stop looking at Taylor when he first saw her. However he knew that he couldn’t go near her because of Blane. He was involved in less than upstanding business and didn’t want to get Taylor involved in any way.


That just sets things up for the who we should stay away but can’t scenario. This book was really HOT! I loved it from beginning to end it simply puled me in. I couldn’t put it down and once it was over I wanted to read it again and again.

Addiction Teaser 6 - tour

I cross my arms over my chest, getting more comfortable. “Come in,” I call out.The door opens, and she comes walking in as if she owns the place. Shoulders pulled back and

chin up. She is dressed much differently than she was last night, but it doesn’t change the fact

she’s beautiful. She’s pulled her long, dark hair up into a messy ponytail with loose pieces

framing her flawless face. She has an oversized white t­shirt on that hangs off one shoulder.

The color of her bra strap gets my attention. Black—my favorite color. She’s wearing a pair of

black yoga pants that hugs her thin legs. Even though they cover more of her legs than her

shorts did from last night, they seem more sexual. More intimate in a way that makes me want

to peel them off her slowly.

“I need to have a word with you …” I arch a brow at her hard tone even though it did sound cute

“… sir,” she adds a little softer, and I hide my smile. So she doesn’t have as much backbone as

she wants me to think she has.

“I don’t think we’ve been properly introduced,” I say as I stand. I reach out my right hand toward

her. “My name is …”

She holds up her hand stopping me. “I know who you are.” She cocks a dark eyebrow. “A

word?” She’s all business.

I smirk as I sit back down. “Of course. And please, call me Case.” I gesture to the chair that sits

across my desk.

“I’ll stand. This won’t take long.” She takes in a deep breath, and I allow myself a quick look at

her large chest hidden behind that t­shirt. I can’t touch her, but I sure as hell can enjoy the view.

“What can I do for you?” I ask with amusement. I can think of several things I could do for her,

all of which would require her being naked and bent over my desk. I rub my hands on my thighs

as I feel my cock start to harden at the thought of her, open­mouthed, moaning in pleasure.

“My brother told me that he owes you.” She gets right to the point.

My face hardens at that statement. My amusement is replaced with anger. What else did he tell

her? “I don’t see where what business I have with your brother is any of yours,” I say flatly.

She crosses her arms over her chest and lets out a huff. The motion blows the dark strands

around her face. “That is where you are wrong. I don’t know what he owes you, but I’m willing to

pay it.”

I refrain from chuckling at that. I lean forward and place my forearms on my desk. She quickly

scans the tattoos on my arms and then looks back at me. “Taylor…”

“Call me Miss Williams,” she informs me lifting her chin.

“Miss Williams, I assure you that you cannot pay what he owes me.”

I watch as her tough act starts to unravel. “I don’t have a lot of money, that’s true. But maybe I

can make payments,” she offers, her voice sounding more desperate than demanding.

I shake my head. “This isn’t about money.”

She stomps her foot, and I chuckle. Her beautiful blue eyes narrow on me as she uncrosses her

arms and points an angry finger at me. “Name your price!” she demands. “Everyone has a


If she only knew how right she is, but I say, “There is no price.”

She throws her arms out to her side. “I came here …” She pauses as she looks around the

room as if it can give her some sort of an answer. Then she mutters a curse in frustration. When

she looks back up at me, she looks desperate. Her eyes have softened, making them look

lighter than they are. Her lips part as she breathes in a sigh, and her shoulders slump in defeat.

And I hate that I like the way it looks. That it makes me feel like she needs me. That I hold all

the answers. Too bad she’s not gonna get them.
