Product Description

'THIS BOOK WAS SO GOOD! I fell hard for Dixon…I would give it more than 5 stars if I had them, but until then... 5*****' Wicked Good Reads

'This book. This book knocked me on my butt, it twisted me up in knots and consumed me until the end. Just be warned, it is not your typical romance. It's a wild ride with a naughty, naughty man.' Kendall Ryan

I knew she was bad news when she walked into my office, but I just couldn’t help myself…

Filthy, sexy and full of surprises, Juliet is so hot she has me on fire. I’ve met my match and I can’t help going back for more.

Then there’s Madison… she’s sweet, funny and awakens in me a fierce need to protect her.

But I don’t do relationships. I don’t usually do the same woman twice.

Juliet and Madison: Two very different women have got me completely hooked.

Who will I choose?

I know who I should choose, but I never said I was the hero of this story, or even the good guy. And besides, who wants to be good, when it feels so good being bad?

My tale isn’t for the faint-hearted. If you’re game, strap yourself in and expect the unexpected. But don’t say I didn’t warn you…

Achingly sexy and highly addictive, Dirty Dix, the first in the Hard Love Romance series, will have you hooked. Wicked Dix coming soon…

5 sinfully dirty and addictive stars! Holy hell, paging Dr. Naughty! Monica, you totally stole my words in your letter at the end of the book, because I TOTALLY screamed "OH NO HE DIDN'T" countless times in this book. Dixon's Manwhore level: expert, to match the skill at which you wrote this story. My mind is still reeling from the twist you threw at me and the cliffhanger that has left me absolutely gaping with astonishment and thoroughly intrigued as to where this story is going to go next. I've only finished this book a matter of minutes ago, but I'm already craving a hit of the next book to come!

HASH(0x9afeb87c) out of 5 stars Not a sweet romance novel Feb. 28 2016
By MBurton - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
ARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Despite the warning in the book description, this was not at all what I expected. To be frank, the first half of the book just disgusted me. If I hadn't received this as an ARC, I would have put the book down and not finished it. This has nothing to do with the author or her style of writing. In fact, I can honestly say Monica James is a very talented writer. It's just not my kind of story. The book is done in the males POV, which I happen to like and it wouldn't have worked any other way. Despite the first half making me want to puke, the author actually started to turn the story around for me. I almost thought I was going to end up liking the book by the end but then the results of Dixon's disgusting behavior came back to bite him in the ass. This left this book off with a cliffhanger implying things in the next book that just makes me want to scream! I honestly don't know if I will read the next book. If the book starts out like it implies, my answer is hell no! But, we all know the story doesn't always end the way you think it will. I could end up loving this series and will depend on the author.

I don't want to give any spoilers but just to warn you there is darker material in this book than I was expecting and the actions of some of the characters were just vile. Again, I do believe the author can turn this book around for me but I would be taking a chance that she might cross the line I personally have for this type of book. Just be forewarned this is not a sweet romantic book and I don't know if you'll love Dixon or hate him.

HASH(0x9db07600) out of 5 stars Honest Review Oct. 8 2015
By Romance Readers Retreat - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Despite the warning in the synopsis to expect the unexpected, I'm afraid I just didn't expect the things in this book.

Now whilst the whole concept is nothing new, regardless of the warning I had high hopes for Dixon, a psychiatrist who specialised in addiction, but sadly he is what ultimately ruined this book for me. I know he claims not to be the hero, but I at least expected the man to be sexy. I did not like him one bit. Firstly it was his failure to keep his genitals in his pants. I mean he claims to have some connection to the sweet and innocent Madison, yet couldn't turn down the devil's spawn that is Juliet. Now some may wonder what the problem with that is, but to me the man came across as weak and cowardly. He displayed so much self pity and the fact that he not only was someone who I would very much expect to be a walking advertisement for an STD commercial, I just found myself thinking he also needed to get over his ex fiancé, Lily. I could sympathise with his aversion to relationships, I get that he had been hurt in the past, but it was his weak mind that very much made me despise him.

Lines such as this one "I find myself staring at her like a creepy old pervert" and "Not that long ago, I recall you not having any qualms touching a certain little girl,” were pretty off putting and not something I want to hear from ANY fictional man. Which leads me onto my next point. What kind of pheromones was this guy giving off? Because I tell you, women were round Dixon like dogs on heat. I felt like diving in the book and telling them to stop with the desperation. It became totally unbelievable by the end.

I also found too many coincidences in this book. Madison or Juliet would always turn up at the right/wrong moment. New York is a pretty big place and some of these coincidences even spread to Boston, now whilst I admit I love an unexpected appearance of a character now and again, in this instance it was just too much.

Another major issue I had seemed to be that there is a huge flaw in the plotline surrounding Madison and her past. For obvious reasons I don't want to go into what that is, as it could potentially ruin the book for anyone wishing to read it, but the use of a couple of words have been totally misconstrued and to my knowledge have not been used in the right context and they contradict the other.

Also Madison reveals something near the end and to me, I felt this cheapened the story. I've read books that have touched on this subject and were probably a lot more graphic, but due to the nature of the book and the misinterpretation of words, I really do believe that this subject could have been better dealt with.

The book ends in a way that leaves no doubt there will be another book, but for me personally the ending was too abrupt. It simply felt rushed.

Despite my misgivings, I do feel the book was pretty well edited, in so much as the sentence structures and dialogue were well put together and that in itself shows the author does have a talent for writing, but the whole plot of this book just wasn't for me. I'd like to point out that it didn't shock me, as I like to think I've read quite a diverse collection of books, but maybe if it was told entirely in Madison's perspective, I may have had a completely different reaction, but I wish the author every success and it is with regret that this book just wasn't for me.

WHOA! WHOA!!! 4.5 Stars.

I just finished an ARC of Addicted to Sin and boy let me tell you it absolutely lived up to its title. First I want to address that when I was reading the description of the book it sounded like a love triangle (I am not down with love triangle or three-some myself ☺)… BUT let me say that this is NOT a LOVE TRIANGLE, no cheating involved … but rather the guy was torn about choosing the right girl. GOOD versus EVIL.

Dixon is a shrink who makes tons of money listening to people pouring their sinful secrets. His job is to help them come to term with their problems but he himself is a lost cause. He has a dark secret of his own – SEX ADDICTION.

At first I thought I was going to dislike Dixon because even though his patients were all too willing (some aggressive) to engage in sexual act during their sessions I thought it was unethical because these patients are vulnerable and should not be taken advantage off. Yes! That’s me, the nurse talking … LOL But I realized I am reading a book, not real life!!!! Silly me ☺ Dixon really grows on me. He is a hot, sexy, caring, good guy at heart – just been burnt bad and that’s changed him as a person. Turned him into a man-whore!!!

Dixon met two beautiful women. Madison is a smart, sweet and innocent young student. She also has a dark past that makes it hard for her to open up and trust people but she is attracted to Dixon. Their relationship was rocky partly from Dixon not able to make up his mind choosing the one but also from the struggles she still hasn't dealt with from her secret past. Dixon's trying to be a good friend, and the way he takes care of Madison is heart-warming. He calls her "angelo" Gah!!! swoon-worthy!

All that Italian talks geez --- pant-melting. Why didn't I learn Italian in high school?

Note written from Madison "...I saved you a piece - from one angel to another..." - isn't she sweet?

Juliet on the other hand is a crazy sex addict … she is borderline stalker. I felt the whole “Fatal attraction-ish” oozing from that woman. Yikes!!! Dixon is attracted to both women for very different reasons. Juliet satisfies his sex addiction issue, whereas with Madison he can have a real relationship that he was once capable of. So, who will he choose???

"I know who I should choose, but I never said I was the hero of this story, or even the good guy. And besides, who wants to be good, when it feels so good being bad?

My tale isn’t for the faint-hearted. If you’re game, strap yourself in and expect the unexpected. But don’t say I didn’t warn you…"


This is the first book I read from Ms. Monica James … AWESOME! I am already asking her for more sinful book ☺☺ LOL …

I really enjoyed her writing style. It lured me in the story and kept my interest and curiosity until the end. I also enjoyed the funny dialogues between Dixon and his friends.

This book is really sexy and steamy. So yeah, buckle up and enjoy the a very bumpy ride (punch intended) ☺

YOU WILL LIKE IT - get a copy!!!

Can't wait for book 2.

(I received this ARC from Netgalley, honest review!)

I found it very hard to believe that every single woman and every female patient want to drop to her knees and blow Dixon. I also can't imagine a Doctor that willing to put his career on the line for patients. It could happen but in this book it was very unbelievable. The hook was set when Dixon walked out of Juliet's apartment and ran into Madison. The blurb for this book was great, but the story didn't deliver. It was too sex filled, unbelievable and and is a waste of time as far as a series goes. It is that predictable. The pace is very slow, filled with sex and very few character building details. Also there was many words used that American's don't use and I am not talking about Dixon being Italian. I am guessing the author being from the UK had something to do with that. Since "Street Teams" have become so prevalent with authors and their reviews, I personally look for the verified purchase reviews now and there was only four.

1. Dixon was not a believable character nor was his overwhelming knee dropping sexiness. That was bordering on annoying
2. Juliet's background was not that deeply discussed. It was just enough before she launched on his desk and proceeded to satisfy herself. Also unbelievable and she did this so often it too was annoying
3. Madison was young and her dark secret was predictable. She is written weakly and again pieces of background but nothing to build a great story on.
4. Very slow moving, more porn based than story based.
5. Hunter the best friend may have been the only good part of the book and he was brief

A weak beginning to a series or trilogy that doesn't have the characters to make you swoon or anticipate the next book. This one fell flat and was really hard to finish since you just know how it will end.

HASH(0x9b139144) out of 5 stars Has a cliffhanger! Oct. 16 2015
By Luisa Rivas Martinez - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I hate cliffhangers, especially when I don't love the book but want to know what happens next. At the beginning of the book, I was disgusted to see that Dixon is a psychiatrist who sleeps with his female patients. What kind of sleazy doctor is this? I wondered if this would be presented as normal and acceptable in the book. As I read on, I discovered that Dixon's proclivities and weaknesses were taking him down a dangerous road, and potentially causing harm to his career and reputation. Once the moral compass of the book was cleared up, I could start to enjoy the book. Dixon is brilliant but unfortunately, "weak of flesh". His mother's death and his father's breakdown, and his fiancee's betrayal have done a number on him. He has two great friends, Finch and Hunter, who act as his good and bad devils. I loved their convos, they were wicked funny.

I didn't get a great feel for Madison, couldn't connect to her. She was greatly attracted to Dixon, but I sincerely didn't understand why she kept looking him up. Apart from being a hunk, he wasn't so stellar with her. I though this was going to be about a love triangle, but I saw Juliet like a psycho bitch who would cause trouble later on, and oh boy! What a tangled web!

In the second half of the book, it finally sucked me in, it got a lot interesting. All the elements in the book got together into a huge ball of suspense. And just when it got to defcon 5, we got a cliffhanger, argh!!!
