A new adult story of Love. Sex. Addiction. Blackmail. And Power...

Some say love can be an addiction. Others say it's the thing that makes life worth living. Let me tell you everything I know about love...Love isn't patient, love isn't kind. Love is a game, a chase. A thrill. Love is wild and war-like, and every man and woman must fight for themselves. At least that's how it was for me. A high-priced virgin call girl by the time I started college, I was addicted to love and to sex. Even though I've never had either. I controlled love, played it, and held the world in the palm of my hands. Then I fell down from those highs, and I'm being blackmailed for all my mistakes, forced to keep secrets from everyone, except the only guy I don't regret.

Trey...
With all the other women, I knew what they were. They were temporary. They were pills, they were bottles, they took away all the pain, and numbed the awful memories that wore down my ragged, wasted heart. Until I met Harley. She's the only girl I ever missed when she walked away. But now she's back in my life, every day, and there are no guarantees for us, especially since I don't know how to tell her my secrets. What happened to my family. All I know is she's the closest I've ever come to something real, and I want to feel every second of it.

How can you love with no regrets when regret is all you know?

REVIEW:

Oh my heavens. I've let this review stew in my brain for days. DAYZ, with a Z. I don't even know where to begin with this one. High priced call girl, sex addicted broken guy, a mother you want to throat punch into next week and a totally ugly beautiful read that will have you laughing, jaw dropping, and ugly crying. I was a mess. Talk about a total mindfuck. MINDFUCK!

Harley is was a high priced virgin call girl who has been blackmailed into writing a memoir about the many men she had been with. True story, names changed to protect privacy and maybe a few embellishments along the way. The blackmailer? Her mom's editor. She ends up joining a group of recovering addicts and ends up meeting Trey.

Trey is a recovering sex addict. Anything with two legs and tits, he'll fuck the brains out of. He's joined the same group as Harley and they form a bond. His past is full of pain, loss and sorrow. He maps it out in the form of tattoos. Each one has a story behind it.

If you're looking for a major mindfuck twelve ways from Sunday, pick up The Thrill of It. I really enjoyed the relationship dynamic between Harley and Trey, and Harley and her former pimp. Words can't even begin to describe how I felt after I turned the last page.

There's just so much I want to say but I would be sharing spoilers, darling.

Favorite Quote:
She is killing me. I am hanging on to the frayed end of a rope with the smallest bit of self-restraint left.
