He awakened a need within her…

Cole is successful beyond his dreams. He can have any woman he wants, but there’s only one he can’t stop thinking about. His childhood sweetheart, Renita. He’s never forgotten his first taste of innocent love and the desire that consumed them—or the pain he brought upon her…

But now she belongs to another…

Her long ago brush with submission awakened a longing in Ren that drove her to walk the darker edge of desire. She’s become a beautiful woman at ease with her sexuality and unapologetic about her need for a dominant man. When Cole finds her again, he’s gutted that she belongs to another. Ren’s current master agrees to give her to Cole for a short time, but then she must return to his keeping. And though Cole agrees to this bargain, he knows he will never be able to let Ren go again…

So hello again! I'm back, having finished Sweet Addiction- book #6 in the Sweet Series by Maya Banks. And although this book has a lot of "oh poor me" / whiny parts in it, I was able to get past that because of the copious amounts of sex involved. Hahahaha!!! This book was probably OVER sexed, much like another earlier book in the series, Damon's book... almost TOO much sex, but hey, you'll never catch me saying that! heh! ;) I really did like the plot and enjoyed the leisurely but "moved right along" feeling I got when listening to it. I know, that was totally contradictory, but everything in this book, kinda was, for me! Luckily, I was introduced through this series, to the feelings a woman could possibly harbor in regards to having to feel dominated and made to submit etc. I had previous been introduced through these books, to the fact that when down to the nitty-gritty, the WOMAN is the one with all the power in a sub/dom relationship because she is ALLOWING the man to "control" her... etcetera... So I've read my fair share of sub/dom books and part of me see's the appeal and the other part makes me think I'm ALL dom, ALL the time! LMBO!

But overall, I did enjoy this book. It was sort of the same ol' thing with the flow of the series, part of me is burnt out on the whole sub/dom stuff, but the characters were great and I was happy to finally learn a little more about Cole, having been introduced to him vaguely since book 1! And the other two characters that were introduced, Lucas and Ren, were good, round characters, but a little on the shallow side. I like to know why a person ticks, you know... and with Lucas, you only got the very surface of the character... sort of the same with all of them except for Ren- we delved a little deeper with her and got to know a little more about her, but still, to me it didn't feel like enough was learned about any of the characters really. *shrug* Either way, it was a decent read, nothing really wow'd me in it other than the explicit sex scenes which were pretty hot as hell. :P I'm moving back into paranormal, I'm all done with pesky humans and their human kinks for now! :)

This book got:
