“SO LET ME get this straight.”

Dr. Glover lifted the end of his pen to his lips as his eyes narrowed on Evan over the top of his glasses. “The woman we’ve been discussing over the past few weeks finally shows you that she wants more, and you left her in an emotional heap in her office. Did I get that right?”

Evan stretched his long legs out in front of him. She thinks I fucked a prostitute the day after I left her apartment, so, yeah, that’s about right. Sighing, he leaned back into the worn leather couch. “You left out the part about her being a liar. And not someone I met in the last few weeks. She had an agenda.”

“So did you.”

“And what the hell was that?”

“You wanted to fuck her.”

“Jesus, you get right to the point, don’t you?”

“Well, that’s what you do. Isn’t it?”

I thought it was until I became obsessed with a leggy fucking blonde. Evan glared at the man whose eyes he swore fucking twinkled.

“Even if it is, what therapist talks like you do? I’m positive they don’t teach you that in Patient-Client Relations 101.”

“I’ve always been a firm believer in no bullshit. I told you that the day you walked in and tried to lie to me. We aren’t going to make any progress if you don’t trust

me and I don’t trust you.”

“Yeah, yeah, I know. You’re just—”

“Yes, Evan?”

Evan waved him off. “Nothing. I guess I’m still trying to process the fact that Reagan is that little girl from so long ago. A whole fucking life ago. It’s… I don’t know,”

he said, running his fingers through his hair in frustration. “It’s disconcerting. She knew

“And that bothers you.”

“Fuck yes, it bothers me. I was ten years old the last time I saw her. Innocent.

And now I’m…this.”

“You’re awfully hard on yourself. I wonder if you’re upset over what you’re saying or over Reagan thinking bad of you.”

And there it was. The truth he didn’t want to admit. Reagan accusing him of being with anyone hours after he’d been with her had infuriated him. Which was ridiculous, because he knew what he was. The demons he’d been trying to fight. Why would she assume anything but the worst? But with that anger came embarrassment and shame. He hated that she’d seen him on that corner. Hated that she’d seen him with Layla. But how the fuck could he ever convince her otherwise? And why would he even want to?

“She’s a liar,” he said.

“And you’re a sex addict. Fantastic pairing.”

about the author

Brooke Blaine

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.

my review

5 Stars

“What do you need?”

He licked his lower lip, and she could tell he was trying to decide how much to say. Then he lowered his head, pressed a kiss to her ear, and said, “To be the man you see when you look at me like you are now.”

She turned her head, and when their eyes connected she asked, “And who’s that?”

“The man who deserves your heart.”

Just in case you’re new to the A Desperate Man series, it is the story of a confirmed liar and a sex addict falling in love. Everything about Reagan and Evan’s connection is extreme – from their sexual escapades to their feelings for one another and it is AWESOME.

Reagan and Evan’s romance made for one of my favorite series of this summer. Their sexual chemistry is off the charts in erotic hotness but these two are not so fabulous when it comes to trusting one another.  They just do not seem to have the confidence in themselves to have an actual relationship.  The conclusion to their journey focuses on them getting over this, their past mistakes and moving forward toward their own version of happily ever after.

However, nothing about these two finding solace is easy.  Their relationship is filled will secrets and lies – so they have a lot to get past. But every single time they gave into their feelings, it was a tempting and sweet surrender. Ella and Brooke gave me moments that I would devour and then re-visit.  They created a lustful and passionate affair that was both beautiful and intriguing  – I couldn’t put it down.

After experiencing Reagan and Evan struggling through their drama (and dealing with anguish of waiting for the second and third installments), I am torn between feeling absolutely satisfied and completely depressed. I’ve finally reached the end of an amazing love story but I have been addicted to this couple for months and now it’s all over.  It’s a bittersweet feeling.

However, from the first moments to the last installment in the A Desperate Man Series is can’t miss reading – making it a top recommendation from me.  Meet Reagan and Evan – find out why they are the most alluring couple in the erotic romance genre. You will enjoy every dirty and enticing moment with this spectacular couple.
