Product Description

Illusions — we all create them.
For some it’s to project an impressive image to a prospective employer; for others it’s to attract the eye of another.
My illusion is a bit more...complicated.
Years in the making, my secret has the potential to bite me in the ass. And not in the way I typically enjoy.

As women, we’re judged for reveling in the same carnal pleasures that men do, but I’ve never been shy about my voracious appetite.
Now, I’m under no illusions that I’ll find love with any of my one night stands.
After all, I have one rule — no repeats — but it’s a rule that’s becoming harder to follow since Evan James came back into my life.
Did I say back into my life?
My name is Reagan Spencer, and you may think you know me, but...
How well do we really know anyone?

** This installment of A Desperate Man: Volume 2 features EXCLUSIVE CONTENT from our solo projects, Trust by Ella Frank and Flash Point by Brooke Blaine, beginning around the 84% mark.

HASH(0x9fc06bc4) out of 5 stars Love this series Feb. 17 2015
By T London - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I was already a fan of this series after the first book. Waiting patiently to see what was going to happen next to Reagan and Evan. I never expected when I began volume two that I would come out being totally addicted to this story like I was. The author really threw me for a loop with this one, exposing secrets and truths that I didn’t expect.

Along with the shock and awe, you will experience some comic relief with Reagan and Evan. We know that they have to keep their attraction to each other quiet due to work rules and Evan’s sex addiction so what better way to have some fun and complete an assignment from his therapist than speed dating? I laughed out loud at their bet and coffee will never hold the same meaning for me again.
Reagan has always had an air about her that led me to believe there was more to her attraction to Evan and this sex appeal and charm and in this installment we find out what that is. As we get to spend time with her parents and brother, more of the pieces to this story begin to fall in place and we get the true sense of who this woman really is.

Evan is doing what he must to keep this job. After losing everything and admitting his addiction, he takes this second chance as seriously as he can but Reagan is always pulling him back to his old habits of sex talk and innuendos that will surely delay his recovery. When the truth slaps him in the face and he realizes his second chance might have been a scam along, things get dire and this is where we end in the book, leaving me dying for more, willing to beg the author to keep writing because I love these two characters and I need to know what happens next.

Make sure you read volume one first, as you will need the foundation to fully understand why the events in this book are so vital to the story. As I stated, I am now addicted to this series. There is no sophomore slump in this collection; so far each volume gets better and better.

HASH(0x9fd32144) out of 5 stars 4 Her Side of the Story Stars Feb. 16 2015
By Dirty Girl Romance - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
"Within the stirrings of lust she felt every time even his name was mentioned, there was the twinge of something more...something dangerous, and the more she felt herself falling, the more she couldn't stop herself."

A Desperate Man: Volume 1 introduced us to Evan James, a man deep in the throws of his addiction. A man that's hit his rock bottom and is now trying to find his way out. Ella and Brooke spared no detail in their introduction of Evan and you certainly get a taste of the man that he is, the man that was, and the man that he desperately wants to find again. A man that has a one night stand with a mysterious gorgeous blonde that turns out to be more. A man that soon realizes that his addiction has now twisted into something else, something different, something more to do with her.

In this book, you get to get to know her, Reagan Spencer, a woman with plenty of her own secrets. Volume 2 is told exclusively in Reagan's POV and many of the missing puzzle pieces that you may have had in Volume 1 will all begin to cleverly click together.

"You do HAVE feelings, don't you, Evan?
"I'm having a very strong feeling right now."
"Well, you should make sure to tell that to the first young lady you sit down with."
"If she's a lady, I'm thinking she won't appreciate that particular feeling."
"The what does that make me?"
"That makes you f****** dangerous."

What I really appreciated about this book was the additional depth it added to the story of Evan and Reagan. If you though that it was just a story of a man that has a sex addiction who meets a woman that tempts him to be something better, think again. It's so much more than that. The authors certainly add a few twists your way that has the plot thickening that much more. I can definitely tell you I did not see any of it coming, but it makes me only that much more anxious for the final installment of this series.

"Right then she knew that, regardless of what her mind had been telling her, she'd continue to push those warnings aside to indulge in Evan James- her own guilty pleasure."

Reagan was a true mystery in the previous book. You really don't know much about her aside from the fact that her sexual appetite is almost as voracious as Evan's. She's no blushing ingenue and she owns her sexuality and makes no excuses about it. Here you'll get to know the reasoning behind a lot of her actions and let me just tell will not see any of it coming...or at least I didn't.

While the first 30% of the book was a bit slower paced, when the secrets began to unravel and be revealed, I was thoroughly sucked in. The continuing sexual chemistry between her and Evan certainly didn't hurt matters either.

I really enjoyed the banter between them here, and the exchanges with the coffee cups was so fun to read too.
If you were unsure of how you felt about Evan in the previous book, I can assure you that you will absolutely fall for him here.
I really can't wait to see where the final installment brings these two, especially with that ending.

HASH(0x9ff7eb64) out of 5 stars Really sexy & secret revealing second book! Feb. 16 2015
By Bianca @BJsBB - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This second part of Evan & Reagan's story is told from her POV.

She's telling us a lot about the past and about how she's falling for Evan... Even though that's not what she usually does. She doesn't do repeats and she doesn't fall in love. And especially not with someone who she's keeping secrets from. But she just can't get Evan out of her head.

Plus he's trying to get better with his sex addiction - he's seeing a therapist and tells Reagan all about the sessions.

But then the good doc tells him to go to a speed dating thing - to try something normal for once. And the night ends with ..... ☺ Not telling you.....


NOPE . . .

I'm not telling you ☺


♥ Evan is back!!! Finally. Only he's not the one to tell us the story this time. It's Reagan's turn now and we learn soooo many new things. About the past and the families and what she's thinking and feeling.

There's not much sex in this little story - but what there is, is reallllly hot ☺

I really loved it - I finished it in under an hour :( I wish that once this 3-part serial is finished, that Ella & Brooke re-write it a bit and make it longer and turn it into a real full-length book!!!

Now I can't wait for the final book to arrive this coming spring. I need to know if all those secrets and addictions will stop our two darlings from finding their HEA with each other.

THE FANTASY Vol.2 was a really sexy and secret-revealing Novella!
You will sooo want for Evan & Reagan to get their HEA with each other!!!
You won't waste your money when you one-click it ☺☺☺

Now hurrrrry Vol. III - I NEED to know how the story of Evan & Reagan will end☺

HASH(0x9fc3f0fc) out of 5 stars Loved the twist that this story took. Can't wait for the next one. Feb. 16 2015

“I’m going to tell a very naughty story. Now, keep going, Evan.” ~Reagan
I’ve always called myself a book masochist. One who loves books filled with angst. I tend to love those dreaded cliffhangers and the more sexual tension, the better. Today I announce publicly that….I lied! This book has made me take a step back and re-evaluate my love of those types of books. Because, after I finished reading this book I wanted to both hate Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine, and bow down to their awesomeness. That’s what this book did to me.
Now the rest of the story is one I can’t go into. At one point while reading I blurted out, “Whoa! I didn’t see that coming.” This book takes a couple of twists and turns and I saw none of them coming. Like it took a turn, and about half a mile down the road veered off into the field. I’m still having trouble wrapping my brain around what just happened.
I can’t wait for the next and final installment in this series. I’ve really grown to love Evan and Reagan. These two characters are so different from the others out there. Reagan is once again her feisty self. This book showed her more humorous and competitive side. And, Evan. What can I say about him? Swoon worthy, sweet, sexy, funny, I want him wrapped in a bow for my birthday and Christmas. Yup, that about sums up this sexy beast of a man.
So, I guess you can take away from this review that,
1. I loved this book.
2. There is a cliffhanger.
3. Did I mention that I loved this book?
4. Evan is super sexy and their chemistry is HOT!
5. You may want to remove all breakable items within throwing distance when finished.
And last but not least, did I tell you how much I loved this book?

HASH(0xa01cf9cc) out of 5 stars Great serial series! Feb. 16 2015
By Sandra Shipman - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
It's been three weeks since Reagan and Evan met and working together has been a task on its own. Reagan is Evan's boss and has to keep it professional but she wants him again. And he seems to want the same thing. But there are all the complications. First, Evan is working on his sex addiction. Second, they work together. Third, they do not do repeats.

Reagan has been very supportive when it comes to Evan's therapy. They have been friends. Flirty friends but still friends. She tries to keep it down so he doesn't cross the line. Then, one night a bet was made and the following week was getting to her. She wants him even more and he seems to want to try to woo her, to show her he doesn't just look at her as his Blondie. Of course this can't be easy when there are secrets surrounding both of them. Will the repeat rule go out the window? Will their secrets be revealed?

I love this novella series. It's a fast and sexy read. I think Reagan is kick ass and Evan is funny, sexy and sweet Even though each part is short, it packs a lot in and hooks me every time. I can't wait to see what happens next.

**It was awesome to get a sneak peek into Brooke and Ella's next projects. Next up for Brooke is Flash Point and for Ella's it's Trust! I can't wait for both of them.


“Sometimes we have no idea what we need until someone gives it to us.”

“I just wanted to taste your wet”—he glanced down to her mouth before looking her dead in the eyes—“cappuccino.”

“So…I see you do know how to follow orders. Although I have to say, you far exceeded my expectations.”
