Raymond has a addiction which causes his him to hook up a lot with one night stands he meets on the computer.
Then he gets a message Diago not realizing it came from his mate he thinks Diago is just another hook up.

Now it took me awhile to warm up to Raymond because at first the way he treats Diago I was not a big fan of. But once I started understanding his character more and the way his feelings grow for Diago to love and protectiveness made me love his character by the end of this book.

From all the book I had read from this author, I think this one is my favorite. The beginning is a little murky, but the story premise is great and the author did an excellent job redeeming Raymond.

It has a different take on the Alpha/Omega relationship with a depth that isn't common in this type of story. Definitely, a nice book.

Abraham Steele has done it again. Very well written. While Raymond was not my favorite character in the Fated Dates series, he did redeem himself by the end. I love the concept of this series and recommend all of Abraham Steele's work. I got this free in exchange for an honest review.

Terrible love story. Bad story arc.
Clearly no understanding of how addiction works.
This book just put me off my reading porn phase.

Til next time.

4.5 stars!

This might be my favorite of this series so far--I've also read Fated Dates, Illicit Mates, Mail Order Husbands, and Greater than Fate. First of all, there seems to be more psychological depth in Mating Addiction than in any of the previous books; the previous novels weren't shallow, but they were just not as deep as Mating Addiction. Raymond is simply fascinating; he has such an intriguing backstory and I love the story of how sexual addiction ruined his life for so long, until he mee

Raymond--A man with a sex addiction who only wants one night stands and no commitment of any kind
Diago--A man burned by his ex, but wanting romance and a forever kind of love who looks for his fated mate
A definite recipe for disaster!

Diago reaches out to Raymond because he found out that he is his fated mate. Raymond happens to receive Diago's message while trying to hook up for the night, so he just assumes Diago is another guy for

This book can be read as a standalone. It is book 5 in the Fated Date Agency series, so if you want the full experience, I advise reading in the order intended.

Raymond Fusco and Diago Ayling meet when Diago messages Raymond to meet. Raymond thinks he is coming over for a hook up. Much to his surprise, he tells him he is his mate.

Diago trusted the Fated Date Agency to find him his mate. He is hurt that Raymond is not looking for his mate. He wants to hook up or send him away.

What the hell did I just read? MPreg, shifter romance, sure I'm familiar with the trope—fated mates, knotting, male pregnancy. I knew what I was in for in that respect. But this book was just...well, it's just a big fat nope for me. The dual first person narratives were painful and the writing style is one I don't enjoy.

Raymond and his sex addition (more like sex frenzy) was a jerk until the magic peen cured him. Or that's not quite right, he didn't get the magic penis because he'd the alpha

Another awesome story in the Fated Date Series. Abraham Steele has a unique way of bringing the most unlikely people together in a hot, steamy romance that will keep you wanting more, not of each individual story, but of the series. This particular book involves Raymond, a sex addict who has been disowned by his family, and Diago, a young man who has been scorned by the man he has spent the past five years with. When Diago sends a message to Raymond, who he has been told is his fated mate, every ...more

A Must Read!

A famous talk show host says a man can change, will change, for the right person. This awesome story was all about that. In PART ONE I hated Raymond. I begrudged him every breath he took. Addict and asshole shouldn't be synonymous, but maybe they are. I was amazed at how Diago could look past the abusive, abrasive personality of Raymond and reach for something more, someone better. Diago could have easily become Raymond's doormat, or bedsheet, but he opted for a stronger relationship

I got this book as an ARC for an honest review. Well in honesty, I really liked this book. You have the player who just doesn't give a crap about who he sleeps with, just as long as they don't stick around the next day, then you have Diago. The dreamer of finding his mate and living happily ever after, but when 2 different worlds collide, the fun begins. Raymond and Diago couldn't be more different. Raymond is as stubborn as they get when it comes to relationships and Diago is total opposite. Bu ...more

Additions can be overcome for the right reasons
In this well written book we have Raymond who is an outcast son of the Alpha and has a addiction Sex problem. And we have Diago who right off a break up of a five year relationship signs up with the Fated Date agency and gets matched with Raymond. Raymond is out of touch with anything wolf pack related and knows nothing about the agency. Diago email Raymond and set a time to meet but Raymond thinks it’s just another Hook-up. Lots of stuff happens th

Re-read 4/15/16 - Still fun!
So I wasn't expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised. I haven't read a book about sexual addiction before and that alone made it interesting. Realistic? No, but still fun to read. Raymond was a giant douche at the beginning and Diago was the perfect little omega. Kind of. Anyways, they're fated mates so of course things are going to work out. I did expect Diago's ex to make a lot more trouble for them but he was just an asshole. Fun read, not much brain power req

This has a bit of a dark edge to it. Raymond is deep in his addiction and in complete denial. He's lost so much in his life but his addiction makes him blind to the loss and the pain. Sort of. Diago is all sweetness and light. He sees the good in everything and he's unwilling to give up on Ray. The road is bumpy and there are pitfalls but they keep working together. I loved watching Ray grow and mature as he battles his way to recovery. All for Diago. When he faces huge hurdles he doesn't back d ...more

I love this book and all the books in the series I have read so far

I really enjoyed this book and I love this series of books. I have read Fated Dates, Illicit Mates, and this one so far. I love the relationship between Raymond and Diago. I love watching their ups and downs in their relationship just like the others in the other books. I love the twists and turns in this book too. I will recommend this book and this series everybody I know and to all my friends.

I'd previously read book one of this series and was annoyed by its cliffhanger ending, but I was willing to give this one a chance since it was a standalone full story. Not sure if it was worth the time. The sex scenes were good, not great. The story line a bit ridiculous. Really, I just wanted to slap both MCs and be done with it. The same thoughts must have been rehashed a dozen times by both men/shifters. The best part was the conniving ex, Sloan. He made the story interesting.

I was loving this book, I MC's were both likable and I truly enjoyed this story. This was a free download on Amazon and I was not familiar with this writer and was sure I was going to invest and buy some of his books. Until one the MC's got pregnant. Mpreg is not for me, I can't wrap my mind around it and it's just utterly ridiculous so I the book lost a star for me because of that. Mpreg seems to be this authors thing so no more additional reads for me. But still a very good story.

Interesting take on gay wolf shifter romance. Actually a compelling story of the alpha Raymond overcoming his sex addiction and the omega Diago overcoming the breakup of a 5 year relationship with a nasty guy who was cheating on him. They story follows them as Raymond redeems himself and they learn to be a truly loving couple. A few interesting twists to keep the story moving.

Diago is awesome

Diago is amazingly patient. To find out his mate is an extreme nympho had to have been pretty scary after being cheated on. I was excited how much they grew in the story. Enjoyed this story immensely. I really liked when Raymond abstained from all sex for so long.

Sexy. Hot. Down right dirty at times. The one character really redeemed himself and grew and changed a lot. I thought some parts where a little weird. Over all I really liked the story.

Raymond and Diago relationship started off as a very badly, with alot of miscommunication, misunderstandings. But they were able to find a way to be together, without allowing their baggage to get in the way.

I loved this one. It was different from the others because for once you had one that knew nothing about anything and didnt even want a mate. The other was amazing, innocent and knew he needed a mate. It was all awesome and I loved the trials they went through. I am so glad I got to review this one

One of the best books in the series. At first, I didn't like the way the MC's addiction was handled - it seemed as if the author didn't understand addictions and recovery. But by the end, Raymond has gotten some real help and committed himself to change.
Rachel Emily
Hands down, the best in the series to date. There was more attention to the story, characters, and relationship and I really liked that there were issues that they worked through together. Hopefully future books will be on this level as I enjoyed this one!

Have never read a MM book before.

This is the first of this type of book for me and I found that I really liked it. I love shifters to begin with but found the storyline appealing and I love a happy ever after ending.
I like the series but this one didn´t work for me :-( 2,5 stars.
