After reading Fifty Shades and Bared to you, I was looking for something else to satisfy my need. Addicted to you was an amazing read, unable to put it down read. The story is very good and the sex scenes are extremely well written, I've never read a book from this genre this good and believe me I've read more than my fair share (Fifty Shades opened up a whole new genre of literature to me), a must read, a please read! Enjoy ladies and thank you Beth Kery for another fabulous read.

I somehow managed to get it into my head that the 3 books and 2 novellas that make up this series were one continuous story ,like Sylvia' Day's Crossfire Was so looking forward to getting stuck into another long story , but it became clear long before the end of this book that the story was ending here So disappointed If I had known going in that. it was a one-off ,probably would have given it 5 stars Rill is a bit of a drama queen ,but not enough to put me off him!

Another good read from the pen of Beth Kery, one of my favourite author's of this genre. I loved the character of Katie, feisty and compassionate, and the small town of Vulture's Canyon. I wasn't totally convinced by Rill's back story but enjoyed the ending. The story is fairly complete in itself but I will no doubt be reading others in the series.
I was disappointed by the Bethany Kane tale in Three To Tango, as it was the hottest in the antho of erotic novellas, but at the same time it was strangely unemotional, and it was only after that I found out that she is the alter-ego of Beth Kery, so I totally understood my confusion: BK can be hit-and-miss.
This was definitely one of her better efforts, as there are emotions visible on the part of both leads from day one: love, anger, angst, guilt, regret, PASSION. Oh yes, the passion was blistering. And on top, both leads were likeable, though I did get a touch irritated with phrases appearing as English, then immediately after in Italics in Irish pronounciation. Yes, the guy was Irish and yes, in times of emotions running high, arousal, passion and upset etc., I got that the accent would be more Irish than American English, but to have it so often...got boring. The author is American, and clearly not the only one in love with things Irish, so yes, I did understand why the emphasis was there, but for me...
It does win points with me as it was romantic: Katie had been friends with both Rill and his late wife, but had always loved Rill, though she would never have betrayed her best friend or allowed either of them to know of her feelings. Eighteen months after his wife died, Rill is still a mess: drunk, a recluse, not being able to produce any screenplays or even socialise. Katie is on a mission to save the man she loves, hoping for a chance with him, and she gets more than she bargained for.
I did wonder at the opening scene, and the lack of mention of it throughout the book until the very end, but this worked out ok. Otherwise, it was a lot of give, give, give all that she could on Katie's part, and initially take, take, take on Rill's part, until he gets over his guilt and starts to feel it's ok to want her and to have sex with her. He tells her it is not making love, but his actions definitely speak louder than words.
Overall, definitely romantic with a HEA, but still a good read, though with a few irritating quirks that I had to ignore to be able to finish the tale.
