FFS, I failed to review, AGAIN! *eye roll* I AM THE WORST! Now that I’ve got that off my chest, I shall review …

I’m a fan of mc romance fiction. That shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone who knows me or follows me. I like my mc romance fiction to be realistic or as close to real as possible, so yeah, there’s going to be some law breaking and some bad behavior shenanigans in the mix. I’m okay with that; it’s what they do. There’s also a brotherhood that supersedes all things. That’s the clincher for

Addictive is book 2 of the Houston Defiance MC. Just like book 1, this book is packed with a lot of action. The story focuses on Wraith and Zero's little sister Princess. You can expect this story to be entertaining, unpredictable, and at times heart breaking.

Wraith has lived a rough life. He has some deep dark demons that consume him down to his soul. He's so hard on himself, he's his own worst enemy. Wraith has an addictive p

Houston Defiance MC at its Best!!

Another winner in this series!! The Prez of the Houston Defiance MC had found Wraith in a bar and that was the beginning of Wraith finding a way to fuel his addiction. Prinie had been through so much with watching her parents killed before her eyes and takes off with her little brother Koda. Now a year later she is back and things are just as crazy. Her brother, the Prez/Zero has been arrested and it seems like everyone wants him dead. It’s up to VP/Wraith to kee

Do you like men with muscles?  Men with tattoos?  Do you like men that when they love they love so deeply and strongly they would do anything for the person they love?  Well hot damn then you are in luck because Addictive by K E Osborn is such story.   This is the second book in The Houston Defiance MC Series, and it is A-W-E-S-O-M-E!  Since the books are stand-alone you don’t have to read book one, but I highly recommend it because it sets the tone and backstory for the rest of the series.  Of ...more

This is the second book in The Houston Defiance MC series. After reading this book I can honestly say this is my favourite MC series that I'm currently reading and I am reading a few. This is definitely a 5 star series.

This is Wraith & Prinies story.
In Explosive the first book in this series we saw the trauma that Prinie went through, She witnessed her mum and dad being killed in the clubhouse by club enemies so she made a decision to take her younger brother koda away from the club for a year

Houston Defiance is on fire! I felt Wraith’s turmoil, anguish, pain and rage...the emotions were so strong. Prinie has definitely had her share of living through tragic situations but will not let Wraith walk away from her again. They have so many obstacles to over come and one biggie is Zero. Wraith is juggling so much and will need to conquer his demons in order to win the battle.

When you go against a man in power, you’re bound to find yourself in a bit of trouble. Zero is facing just that, forcing the VP to step up.

I loved the first book and I wanted to read Wraith's book so much. And I loved Wraith.
When the Club president gets arrested its up to the VP to run the club.
But so many things happening at the same time.
He has to run the club, make sure that his Club President doesn't get dead in prison and stay away from the club president at the same time as making sure that she is looked after.

Prinie and Wraith have this attraction to each other. But Wraith thinks he should stay away from her because he has d

This is the 2nd book in this amazing series and is Wraith and Prinie’s journey. My heart broke from the very beginning from all they Wraith endured growing up, and the way in which is affects his current behaviour. Wraith is now the VP and he was rescued off the streets by Zero who is the President, and Prinie is Zero’s sister. Wraith and Prinie are drawn to each other, but he wants to distance himself from her, and there is a push and pull going on between them throughout, and they have many ch ...more

K.E. Osborn weaves a tale that lives up to and exceeds its title, ADDICTIVE.
Prinie and Wraith's emotional and raw story instantly grabbed my heart and undivided attention. With a desperation for these two deserving souls to have a HEA I devoured every word in one sitting.
Riddled with demons from the past, heartbreak, suspense, action, alpha ness, angst, love, understanding, and an undeniable connection, Wraith's and Prinie's story took me on one heck of an an emotional rollercoaster.

If you are a fan of KE Osborn, then you will love this book. Addictive is Wraith and Kharlie's book. When the club is thrown into chaos, its up to Wraith to lead them all the while trying to protect the one who should be leading them. The action in this book is amazing and I can't wait to see what happens next. ...more

This is the second book in the Houston Defiance MC series.

Wrath’s childhood was a nightmare. It broke my heart hearing what he went through.

Prinie knows she should stay away but she’s drawn to him.

“I’m glad you think that way because I’ve seen the way Wraith watches you when you’re not looking. He adores you. The same goes in reverse. Anyone can see you’re crazy for each other.”

The drama and action is non stop. Old enemies are back. Shocking revelations come to light.

Absolutely volatile. Miss Osborn is doing it yet again. Her intricate storytelling covers every base. The president of Defiance is arrested. Can his best friend help prove his innocence? Hold on for the ride...I promise you, this book is very intense.

Talon was trying to hide his dark side when he meet Zero in a bar.
Been in an mc club Zero knew Talon needed his club so began the change from Talon to Wraith.
Prinie is the clubs Princess, sister to Zero & out of bounds to all.
The pull between Wraith & Prinie is strong but he doesn't trust himself.
This book has plenty of action and unexpected events.
I enjoyed reading it and look forward to reading more in the series with "Fugitive" the next book to follow.

My Rating: 4 stars!

** ARC was generously provided by the author in exchange for my honest review. **

After reading the first book in the series and how it ended, I knew I had to read Wraith’s story.

Addictive was not at all what I was expecting! 😱

The story is so much more that a simple MC romance. Wraith has such a broken past that he can’t seem to escape from no matter how hard he tries. It’s disturbing, tragic and completely heartbreaking to read about. I really didn’t know what I was getting in

Addictive is just that Addictive, K E Osborn with the 2nd outing of The Houston Defiance MC has drawn me further into lives and loves of this ruthless but loyal family. An emotional story of a couple destiny to be together but the past keeping them apart!

The Houston Defiance MC is full of drama, excitement, passion and loyalty. Wraith and Prinie aren’t supposed to have a relationship. Zero, Prinie’s brother and president of the club, has warned all the members to stay away from Prinie. Wraith, however, even as VP, gets his own warning. Wraith has some crazy, intense behaviors that makes him a risk for Prinie. Learning about his childhood and what he endured from his mother is heart-breaking but it shows why he does what he does and how it calms ...more

The President of the Club, Zero, took him in and made him part of the family, but Prinie his younger sister and the club Princess although she has been made clearly out of bounds for Wraith, is just an addiction that he cannot resist, even though he knows that is bloodlust means he must stay away from her.

KE Osborn is one of my go-tos for MC romances, the books are gritty and real and make you question so many things. Addictive lives up to it's name and is the 2nd book in The Houston Defiance MC series. It tells a tale of heartbreak, addiction, and a connection that is so freaking deep. While it is not on the dark dark side of a dark romance, it still has elements in it that a dark romance lover will love.

All in all this book was my jam, I liked the connection between the characters and the story

There are far more reasons for Wraith to stay far away from Kharlie or Princess as everyone calls her - but he just can't. And when the wolves circle the club's doors - there is no way he can resist her any longer.

This was book two of the Houston Defiance spin-off series (highly suggest you read book one - there are a lot of things that come up there that come to fruition in this book) and it is an emotional, sexy, slow-burn second chance with a twist of best friend's little sister. I loved Wra

His is the second book of the series. With this second book it is leading you further into the world of Defiance, then ever before.
Princess has had a bad year so far. She and her younger brother both watched their parents being killed , by having their throats cut in front of them. It took an emotional toll on everyone involved.
Wraith, is trying to fight his addiction of strangling the women who he is with in bed. Along with that he is trying to control his anger, its not easy, but for the love

From beginning to end I was hooked on all things Wraith, Prinie & The Houston Defiance. So many twists & turns(like throw your kindle wtf are you doing to me Osborn twists), personal demons, ALL the angst & one unavoidable and undeniable connection but with enemies around every corner do these two even stand a chance?

WOW what a ride!! Wraith and Kharlie each deserve a HEA and I’m so glad they found each other. I had so many feels, my heart hurt for both Wraith with his painful upbringing and what Khalie witnessed. The story itself was phenomenal like seriously absolutely magnificent.
KE Osborn has once again written a 5 star read that deserves so many more.

This was my first ever book by this author and I’m now dashing off to buy more. It was fantastic!

Addictive is the second book in the Defiance series. I know I haven’t read the first, but once I seen this cover, I had to read. Stunning! The story was just so good. It was packed with action and suspense. I was on the edge of my seat from start to finish. Loved Wraith and Prinie’s story.

ADDICTIVE is the second instalment in KE Osborn’s contemporary, adult HOUSTON DEFIANCE MC erotic, MC romance focusing on the members of the Houston Defiance MC. This is twenty eight year old, club Vice President Talon aka ‘Wraith ‘ , and twenty year old Kharlie aka ‘Prinie’’ Walker’s story line.

Brilliant, captivating and very very addictive. KE Osborn's mesmerising words shine once again. ADDICTIVE was chilling, suspenseful, dramatic, sexually intense ... it was EVERYTHING!!! Kim certainly knows how to take me on a twisting, turning rollercoaster ride. This is the story of Talon "Wraith" and Kharlie "Prinie", and it will break your heart and inspire you.

Addictive is the second title in the Houston Defiance MC series, featuring Wrath and Prinnie. Whilst you can read this dark and gritty title as a standalone, I highly recommend that you read Explosive first as this title continues on from the events that occurred in Zero’s book.
Wraith and Prinnie’s story is an emotional, forbidden romance. This pair has a tumultuous relationship full of miscommunications, denial and feuds.
Prinnie is strong willed, stubborn, sassy and quick witted. She’s driven

Sometimes when you read a book, you immediately torn about one of the characters. That's certainly the case with this book and I have to say that it does add a whole new element to the story. While our heroine Prinnie has a complicated past, it's nothing on our hero Wraith.
If this were a different book, from a different point of view, I think he could well be the villain of the piece. Not because of the way that he treats Prinnie, although that is complicated in itself, but because of the other
