My name is Slade Merrick and I’m a fucking sex addict . . .

I’ve been told it’s a problem. But I see it as a passion; something that I’m good at. And who the fuck stops something that they’re good at?

They want me to seek help; get my cock in check. Don't judge my lifestyle. You’re no better than me. Just admit it, you like to fuck too. Sex is what I do best; my own person

Hmm...Where do I even start with this one? It definitely wasn't what I expected. Totally my fault, by the way. For some unknown reason, I had it in my head that this was a biker romance. Clearly, I didn't read the blurb. Again, totally my fault. Instead, 'Slade' tells the story of a male stripper that is super-slutty. I didn't see that coming! LOL.

Although I was able to adjust to the unexpected storyline pretty quickly, I found this short read to be mediocre at best. There was a huge dose of ins

Just for shits and giggles, I did a word count for "fuck". 573 times the word fuck is used in some variation. Now I'm no prude but that seems like a lot, no? Yes? Maybe? Slade, Cale and Hemy are strippers. They work at Walk of Shame...which was the most willy nilly strip club I've ever seen.

☆☆☆☆ 4.5 Slade Stars ☆☆☆☆


Let me first off say, when I first read these lines of the blurb I was sold:

My name is Slade Merrick and I’m a f*cking sex addict . . .
When I'm not f*cking, I'm slinging drinks at Walk Of Shame or stripping my way into your bed; another thing I'm good at. Every woman’s darkest fantasy brought to life.

Pardon my language but Holy Shit.. SLADE was one HOT **fans oneself** READ!!!!

Slade is a stripper and he has sex All. The. Time and helllooo... can he talk dirty! Phewww... But, there's something underneath all that and it's that vulnerability that makes him even sexier.

Aspen's in town for the week just to get away from things and get her head on straight. She's staying with her good friend, Cale, who guess what? You got it - he's also a stripper and...he's Slade's roommate. When Aspen meets Slade she tries to stay away...she really does because she's also hiding
3.5 sexxxy stars
“All I know is that you don’t come to Walk of Shame unless you’re looking to fulfill your darkest, wildest fantasies. This place is dirty. The boys are dirty; addictive.”

Slade is the cockiest bad boy stripper from the Walk of Shame, when he's not out there shaking his ass, he's getting laid.

His rules are simple...
“It’s yours for one night and one night only. No bullshit after. Enjoy it and move on. I need to get off and I’m pretty damn sure you do too.

OH.MY.GOODNESS. Take me now. Slade is oh so sexy and has a way with his dirty yet take me now words. Right from the start we were introduced into Slade's one sided cocky God's gift world and he will make any woman drop to her knees. This read is oh so worth it and so much fun reading it as well.
We never knew what Slade was going to come up with next while trying to win over Aspen.

You know what? I ain't even mad anymore.

I shot my rage wad with this genre on Katy Evans' Mine and, ever since, I simply can't get worked up about it. The alphadouches and walking serious vaginal conditions and slut-shaming and barely-there plots and porny sex and idiotic secondary character series bait and all the rest of it. Nope. Whatever.
