Who in the world tells a girl that on their first meeting? Tyler Locklin, that’s who. He’s filthy rich and arrogant with a set of abs that is the envy of all young men everywhere, and did I forget to mention devilishly handsome? He’s a bastard of the first order.

I picked up Addicted because I love a Stepbrother romance. I didn’t realize it’s about two adults hooking up and later realizing they are stepbrother and stepsister, so the “taboo” aspect is kind of mild, but I carried on.

ALSO, I didn’t know the book ends at the 50% and there’s another bonus book. Which completely makes sense now because as I was reading, I was thinking to myself how the author was going to finish the book because the book is very quick pace.

Yes it’s a fast

Tyler is immediately attracted to Victoria but she is offended by his cocky and arrogant comments toward her. But Tyler is used to getting whatever he wants and he definitely wants Victoria. The two of them start a hot and steamy romance then discover that they are step-brother and step-sister. Neither are close to their parents, but when Tyler's dad gives him an ultimatum to choose between Victoria and the company he runs things become even more complicated.
This book wasn't as gripping as most
This was just an ok read for me. I was into while reading but afterwards, I was just done.

This was the first step-brother/step-sister book that I've read. I had expectations that this would be a sleazy erotic tale, but it wasn't. It was actually quite good. There was a real story and several sub plots occurring simultaneously, which made for a more interesting and developed book. Tyler is a little over the top as far as aggressive sexual action and personality while Victoria starts out as a weak-willed girl desperate to please and make it in the fashion industry. It was most interest ...more

This book was an OK read, I am finding that I like these 'step sibling' romance books even though I didn't like them before. With this book I didn't find myself that interested or invested in the characters, I'm not really sure why.

The main characters are Tyler and Vicky, and these characters differ from other main characters in 'step sibling' romances as they were two people who fell in love before they become step siblings. It makes the whole taboo thing in the romance not as taboo, kind of t

the main characters.

Victoria had dreams she longed to be in the fashion industry. She had a pretty tuff boss who's name was Christine Finnerman. I did not like Christine’s at the beginning of the book but warmed up to her a little more as the story went on.

Victoria had no one really. She did not speak to her mom or her dad. She knew her mom had gotten married but did not even show up to the wedding and had to even seen her since.

Tyler Locklin was know as a playboy. He went through women like cra

The stepbrother romance is a popular theme lately. In this story, Vicky and Tyler have an interesting first meeting. Tyler is a rich guy and used to getting whatever and whoever he wants. When he meets Vicky, he makes it clear he is interested. Vicky is young and struggling and really sick of being ordered around at work by her boss so she thinks a night of fun might be a good release. She knows what he is about and it isn't a long term romance. In fact, Tyler is in a lot of trouble at the famil ...more

This the first book that I've read by Lauren Landish, and it definitely won't be my last. Tyler Locklin battling past demons that has made him a bad boy. It's starting to affect his job at the company that he helped co-found with his father. The board wants to vote him fired, unless he cleans up his act. Victoria has a dream to work in fashion. She works for a fashion powerhouse that treats her like crap, and her mother is always harping on her to get out of it. When she's stuck measuring Tyler, ...more

Loved this book... lauren has done it again... Amazing!!! I couldn't put it down once i started. Loved how the characters found each other and had that instant energy buzz between them, to discover a few weeks later that Tyler is Victoria's step brother!
Victoria has disowned her parents and is newly qualified in the fashion business and is working for Christine who is extremely well know in fashion. During a wedding fitting, she meets Tyler...

Love Victoria and Tyler!! Lauen did a great job with writing their story put all the angst, steamy sex scenes, backstabbing, heartbreak, love, happiness, its all there. You should really check this book out I think that you will enjoy it as well.

Very enjoyable read. It was sweet to see the play between Tyler and Vicky. She certainly gave him a fight and is was great to read.
Victoria works for a difficult woman named Christine, but she is the best in the fashion world and that's just the experience Victoria needs. During a job, Victoria meets Tyler an attractive, rich playboy and is instantly drawn to him. He is a charmer, but his mouth caused her to be put off. But when he invites her out for a drink and she accepts, the Sparks between

I received this for my honest review. Tyler is a typical CFO... arrogant, sexy, cocky and major playboy who is now on the line of losing his place with the company he helped founder with his father all because he likes to go wild with women,constantly with a different one every week and partying which is giving the company a bad image. Victoria is a young woman trying to make it in the real world on her own, all she wants to do is be a fashion designer and want to get her name out there and be a ...more

Bad boy, big companies, and a girl who set his world on fire.
Tyler is use to getting his way anytime, anywhere. Whether it's a good time out on the town, in his company or with the ladies. Until she came along and literally smacked some sense into him. At a fitting for a friends wedding.
Victoria has written off her parents as a loss cause due to what they did each other. So as a women in a big city alone, she gets down to business with what she wants to do as a assistant to the best of the best

This is my opinion. I was just bored and quickly became disconnected to the story.

I was in the mood for a stepbrother romance and picked this one up. At 20%, the heroine was still rambling. Too much detail about her job, her mother, and everything else in her life. At 21%, the MCs still have not met or anything. I need the author to introduce me to what is going to happen. The whole orgasm sex thing in the Prologue does not count. I hate when there is so much unnecessary detail about e

Two for the price of one. Addicted is very similar to the Devil Wears Prada when it comes to the heroine and her boss. Added is the hero, his jealous coworker, possible gold digging mother (heroine's mom) and everyone else that was in Tyler's pockets. The romance was there but luke warm.

The next book 'Stepbrother Bad Boy's Baby', (a mouthful right) was so disparaging of the hero that I don't believe liked him. Due to this, the very judgemental heroine and her mom are on my list of least likable

Received this complimentary copy from the author for an honest review.
Oh are such a bad boy. Victoria...sorry you have got no chance of surviving Tyler. He is such a cocky, arrogant, smart and handsome devil. So when they meet, sparks fly. Especially when she slaps him. They are so suited to each other but they don't know that yet. What with horrible bosses, scheming exes, blackmail and a crazy wedding to organise, oh and not forgetting the hot hot volcanic sex scenes, this was a fas

This short story was written reasonably well, but I would have love to see the character developed a bit more. The storyline is great and the characters likeable, however it felt a little bit rush.
Very hard to get a strong story going over a short book, which in a way is not bad, since I was left wanting more.

I wont't go into details since the synopsis summarize what you can expect ahead.

I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review.

I received an ARC for an honest review. I must say after reading Mr Dark and loving it I was really disappointed in this book. Lots of typos. It felt rather rushed and Victoria was all over the place she was supposed to be strong and feisty yet she completely mooned over Tyler and was forever crying over him. If I hadn't read any of Lauren's books before I would've assumed this was a first novel. ...more

This book was simply BAD. It has not only horrible writing but also a supposed heroine that is plain stupid and naive. If you are into books where the girl lets herself be dominated by a jackass then by all means this is a book for you. However, I on the other hand enjoy books that are a little bit more reslistic. I was unable to finish the book due to the fact that I found him sexist and arrogant and her gullible. I happen to enjoy books with girls I can relate to or understand their point of v ...more

Usually I can push through and hope the story gets better, but I stopped reading when a chapter ended with the heroine being thrown out of his penthouse by his butler, only to TWO PAGES LATER weeks had gone by, and they were suddenly in some whirlwind romance. I have up at that point. Part of a good romance, especially"bad boy stories, " is reading about the Hero redeeming him

It was weird. I just don't know how to explain it. Well let me start by telling you what I expected after reading the synopsis was way off. The step sibling taboo part was almost nil. As well as just remove it, wouldn't make any difference. There were few more tropes which seems forced, the connection , emotion everything seems forced. The events were skipped. I read novel to read moments between MCs, which were skipped. I was like WTF?! Also in between I few times thought if pa

For what it's worth it's not bad. I just thought it was so cheesy. Tyler thinks he is all that and Victoria is one of those heroins who throws a stupid fit and then in the next second is all over him. I was disgusted when Tyler gave into his ex, who supposedly destroyed him, but to get rid of her he pays her off instead of just kicking her to the curb. He had the money that he could have destroyed her but he was a sucker who gave her just what she wanted.

I liked the story of Tyler Locklin and Victoria Young. Known as a player, he just had not met the perfect woman for him until he met Victoria. They started dating and having sex until he took her home to meet his father. There she saw her mother with her new husband, Tyler's wealthy father. So that makes Tyler her stepbrother. Everyone was upset but they were not blood-related. Tyler is miserable as he realizes he had fallen in love with Victoria. She loves him but feels she can't trust him. He ...more

Tyler was a rich kid who could have any woman he wanted but he ran into Victoria who didn’t think he was all that. So he had to work at it and invited her out to have a drink and almost blow it there also. He takes her home and then leaves her to find herself alone in the morning with the butler telling her she should just forget about him. This is a strange story but Tyler finds out he likes the girl and wants to see her again and has to make it up to her for being such an a** . It’s not a bad ...more
