Addicted by Elle Kennedy - Review

From the New York Times bestselling author of Claimed comes the second enticingly erotic novel set in a world on the brink of chaos.
Lennox used to live in a paradise on earth with his best friend Jamie, in a place where visitors came and went, allowing their desires to run free. But everything changes when a deadly attack forces them to take up with Connor Mackenzie’s band of Outlaws. Lennox knows Jamie is hung up on someone else, but he’s always believed he’s the man for her—and won’t let her go without a fight.

Even though Jamie is well aware that Lennox is one hot specimen of a man, she refuses to let sex ruin the most important relationship in her life. But when the object of her interest spurns her, she indulges in a little pleasure-filled revenge with her very magnetic, very willing best friend. One thrilling night with Lennox is enough to awaken Jamie’s unexpected desires for him. And now that she’s had a taste, she’s not sure she can ever give him up...

As soon as I finished Claimed, I went on to read Addicted straight away. We were first introduced to Lennox and Jamie in Claimed; they owned a brothel-like house, where sexuality and booze is free-for-all. Hudson picked up on the unrequited feelings of both Jamie and Lennox and so going into this book I was cautious. I hate, hate, love triangles, so I was wary starting this book that I'd be faced with this possibility. 
But Elle Kennedy did not let me down. 
No love triangles. 
Praise the Lord.

This book begins one month after the events of the last book; Lennox and Jamie have been living with Connor's group for a month since their house was destroyed. Connor is sending Lennox to Foxsworth, the only civilian outlaw town in the world ran by the mysterious Reese, to teach them how to fight and defend themselves.

I loved Lennox and Jamie's friendship. This bestfriends-to-lovers story was simply amazing. These two cared so deeply about each other, but were scared to take it further or ruin it by sex, so they're determined to keep this friendship platonic. The transition from friends to lovers in this book was so smooth; no angst or unnecessary drama. I adored these two. 

I also loved the extra sideline story we got with Reese and Rylan. I love Reese. She's one badass chick! I love how she was immune to Rylan's charms but still found him slightly irresistible. I've always loved Rylan and I'm slightly excited to find out his story is next with Reese, (fist pump!) I literally cannot wait for this book as I know it's going to be soooo good!

This series is just amazing! It's a must-read! If you're after a futuristic, slightly sexual, overall romance series, then this is for you. It combines different tropes and genres flawlessly. Get reading guys, seriously.
