Elle Kennedy's Outlaws Series is hands down one of the most addictive, sensual, and thrilling reading experiences I've had to date. It took less than 20% into reading Claimed (Bk #1) to know that I had found a series I would be heavily invested in. Elle's writing style is fierce. And her stories are painted with such vivid clarity, her characters so alive, it's down right intoxicating. To say I loved Addicted would be putting it mildly. It was s

ADDICTED, the second installment of Elle Kennedy's OUTLAWS series, picked up where the last book left off.

The survivors of the Enforcer attack on Lennox's den of iniquity have relocated to Conner's compound, with Lennox and co. struggling to adapt to a more rigid lifestyle.

Oh, they still have ALL the free and shared love, but their movements are restricted (secret compound location is secret), and Conner makes unilateral decisions b/c Conner.

Smutopia - a dystopian novel that is so steamy that your e-reader may spontaneously combust. Read at your own risk.

might as well make it work for you..

So, apparently in the future there will be a lot of public sex. People will decide that sex without an audience is boring. And, that's fine. Whatever floats your boat. But, my main problem with this Smutopian Paradise is that because of this "enlightenment", there is virtually no surface that hasn't been tainted by the boat floaters, and I didn't

I'm totally getting derailed here but anyhoo, Addicted was HOT. As in capitalize and bold that part right there. And if you've been a fan of Elle Kennedy's Out of Uniform series, then you'd know that this girl can write HOT. Multiply the hotness level of that series by 10 and you'll get this book.

Elle Kennedy has truly cemented herself as a must read author. Kennedy has flawlessly and sophisticatedly written a story that captures the very essence of why I continue to be addicted to her writing and storytelling. And in her latest installment to the Outlaws Series, Ms. Kennedy will once again get her readers Addicted.

Friends-to-lovers is one of my FAVORITE tropes, though I don’t read it as often as I’d like. I’m picky because there just aren’t very many well-written ones, but Addicted is definitely on the better end of the spectrum. This is book two in the Outlaws series and features Lennox and Jamie, who we met in Claimed. These are two best friends who wholeheartedly believe their relationship is platonic, so I was eager to see how Elle Kennedy would turn that around

Thank you to SIGNET and Netgalley for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Claimed was on my top ten reads of the year for 2015, so I think it’s safe to say that Addicted had a pretty high bar to reach. I loved Claimed because it was raw and gritty. And while I didn’t know it at the time, it’s clear now that that book was just easing us in. The author took the things I loved about the first book and stepped them up in Addicted.

Jamie was a strong female lead. She was fun

This second installment was even more disappointing than the first. There is a very interesting premise/plot hidden among copious amounts of sex. This dystopian series has the crazy desperation everyone feels when their worlds have turned upside down.

Lennox and Jamie have been best friends for a long time and they have also been fighting an attraction. They both felt that the friendship was too important to risk losing it if a relationship goes south. There was the angst of the push and pull but

Elle Kennedy knows how to write wicked hot books. I’m talking burn your finger-tips hot. I feel like I need to fan myself after reading Addicted. If you thought Claimed was steamy, wait until you read Addicted. Addicted is a standalone and is part of the Outlaw series. This is a dystopian book with alpha males and tough women.

What you must first understand about this book is that the heat it generates may very well burn out your reading device :) Seriously one of the hottest reads out there. That being said, it's also not very "safe". Lennox and Jaime are best friends who love each other but have never gone "there" in an effort to protect their friendship. There is a lot of back and forth among themselves as to why it couldn't work and in the meantime, they have a good old time sexually with many partners sometimes m ...more
Addicted is the second installment in Elle Kennedy's erotic dystopia series titled Outlaws. Although the storyline picks up right where it left off in the first book, there didn't seem to be a focus on the dystopia element in this one. The erotica/romance element took precedence in my opinion which was both enjoyable and disappointing. Although, I love a good friends-to-lovers story, the thing that hooked me on this series was the strong dystopia component. The balance of a well-rounded storylin ...more

WHAT DO YOU MEAN I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL NOVEMBER FOR Ruled!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!!!!!!! Elle Kennedy you've got me fucked up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Profanity aside, Addicted was just as good as its predecessor, Claimed. I find that I am usually disappointed with series' that follow a different couple in each book. I think what makes Addicted the exception, is that it is a continuation of the general story-line developed in the first book of this series.

Holy hot dayum. Kennedy knows how to write a scorcher that'll leave you completely satisfied but panting for more. Whew! Addicted was one sexy hot read as Jamie and Lennox's decades long friendship is put to the test and all kinds of yummy sexual tension sinks it's claws into them and refuses to be denied for one second longer.

**** Well HOT DAMN! That was a mind-fuck experience. So, I did not read Claimed (book one of the series), which is a disadvantage because I was initially confused about the “world” all these people are living in… why people are always afraid, training and prepared for fights. I also wondered why Lennox, Jamie and a few friends run seeking home with Connor’s band of Outlaws in the first place. This book feeds the same characters from the first book but after a couple of chapters, I was able to ca ...more
Another SMOLDERING smash hit from the amazing Elle Kennedy! This series is one of the SEXIEST around! I am completely ADDICTED! So HOT! So INTENSE! So FREAKING GOOD! I will never get enough! Lennox will make you fall to your knees and Jamie is just the spitfire to bring Lennox to HIS knees. This enticing and erotic friends to lovers romance is intense and passionate to the max! Sex, suspense, and lust pours out of every single page until you're left with weak knees and a huge grin on your face. ...more

A friends-to-lovers story that is anything but hearts and flowers…

This raw, new world is nothing like I know—I almost cried when I read people don’t read books anymore! Thank goodness there are other things that are worth living for, with love being one of them!

This works as a standalone, but if you read book one then the characters will be happily familiar. Lennox and Jamie are struggling for survival and navigating their relationship at the same time. They are friends—the best of friends for y

I hadn't read an adult dystopian before Claimed and to say I loved it is a gross understatement, so Addicted was one of my most anticipated reads of the year. Seriously, this book will make you wonder what you were doing with your life before you met Elle Kennedy. This story focuses on Lennox and Jamie, who have been best friends since childhood. They've

Holy hotness!

Elle Kennedy takes us on another ride with her smut-tastic (mildly) dystopian series full of sexy alpha males and sexy, strong women. This is the second book in the Outlaws series, and I enjoyed it even more than the first! Full of danger, romance and sizzling hot sexy time, there’s a dark edge to these books, and with great characters, intense stories and Elle’s wonderful writing, it’s a really entertaining read and I loved it.

You could read this as a standalone

There are hardly words to describe my love of this world Elle Kennedy has created with the Outlaws series, and with ADDICTED (book 2), it just gets better and more layered.

Friends-turned-lovers is my absolutely favorite of favorite tropes. I love when there’s a backstory and foundation for a relationship, and that’s exactly what Kennedy gives us with Jamie and Lennox. The sparks between these two are enough to set the entire town ablaze. The evolution of their relationship isn’t without its prob

3.5 - 4 "Smutopia" Stars!!

I LOVE Elle Kennedy's writing.

Addicted is a standalone novel but the second in the Outlaw's series.

Let me tell you. This book is erotica. I saw the term "smutopia" in and I love this term. A dystopian society book where public sex is the new norm, thus everyone has sex with everyone and it's usually on display. It's also a friends to lovers story.

This book has so much sex. And every possible combination (woot!)

Jaime and Lennox were fortunate enough to grow up in a time and place where they knew who they were and where they came from. They've been best friends for over 20 years and preserved that friendship by not crossing the line into becoming lovers, until now. Jaime is stubborn, temperamental and idealistic. She has a strong presence in the community and is an all-around fierce female. Lennox is obstinate, protective and commanding. He's a tru

I really enjoyed Lennox and Jamie’s story. I also really loved Rylan and getting to see his thoughts and feelings first hand.

There didn’t seem to be much of a plot point in this book. It was definitely leading to something and all the foundations were laid but, that something is obviously happening in book 3 so I was left feeling a little flat after wards.
There were some great sub plots and the action was great, sex included. Always incredibly hot, Elle Kennedy is amazing at that!

Nobody mixes action and steam the way Elle Kennedy does. Addicted was a great book. It was such a great blend of good plot, sexy times, and a cool dystopian world. Elle Kennedy is quickly becoming one of those authors I know will never disappoint and I have a lot of books to catch up on.

Everyone (and I do mean basically every single character) is sleeping with everyone.

And maybe some people are OK with that but it's not my thing. Reminds me of her Out of Uniform series which made me feel just as uncomfortable as this book.

Good bye, Elle Kennedy. Your Off-Campus books were good but you're other books just aren't to my taste.

According to, "...'Utopian' describes a society that's conceived to be perfect. 'Dystopian' is the exact opposite -- it describes an imaginary society that is as dehumanizing and as unpleasant as possible."

You need to know this definition to appreciate the post-apocalyptic world Elle Kennedy creates in her Outlaws series. These are not the types of outlaws you see in old movies about the wild, wild west. The heroes and heroines of the Divergent Series, and even the Hunger Games, h
