Review: Claim by KM Scott

If you’ve not read any of the prior books, there’re going to be quite a few spoilers.

This is last book in Scott’s ‘Addicted to You’ series and picks up immediately after book 3. After Ian found out that Kristina slept with another man AND outed his secret identity as T. Anderson (the T & A stands for you know what), the author of the newest and greatest erotic novel, he breaks up with her. This time for good. But not really, remember when you were in grade school and you’d break up for a few hours and but then you’d get back together before you sat down to dinner that same evening. This is exactly the world of Ian and Kristina – not a sane and rational adult in either of them. [Read more…]

Spoiler alert all over this.

Book 3 in KM Scott’s Addicted to You series picks up 5 weeks after Kristina doesn’t go to Rome with Ian for his research trip. In Ian’s mind the trip was twofold – a research opportunity for his new historical and a vacation for the two of them to be away from prying eyes and have time to themselves. Unfortunately, instead of Kristina telling Ian that she’s got a great job opportunity for work, she says nothing and just strings Ian along.

So Ian’s in Rome by himself and he’s got that addiction to heroin that he can’t seems to beat unless he’s got Kristina; it’s not surprise to this reader that he goes on a bender. I mean he does it big – booze and heroin. The only thing he didn’t seem to do was pick up random strangers, but it wouldn’t have surprised me if he did. Once he gets back to the States, he does his stalking thing by going to Kristina’s street and gazing lovingly up towards her apartment window. She’s not there so he heads home and while he’s walking home he sees a gossip magazine cover with Kristina and some new fling they’re reporting about. Left dejected by Kristina again, Ian goes home gets smashingly drunk and calls up his dealer (who’s also his editor). A few minutes later, the bliss of oblivion and flying high. [Read more…]

Mayday! Mayday! Spoilers ahead (from book 1).

Book 2 picks up a week after Kristina walks out the door on Ian; he’s a hot mess. He’s drinking and doing it heavily. He doesn’t understand why she left because she didn’t say. She’s still freaked out about the ‘stalking incident’ in the newly penned erotic book for which he used her as his muse.

They’d already exchanged ‘I love you’ in their very short time together. I wouldn’t even consider their time as dating because the majority was spent having sex in his apartment and her listening to him in the afternoon as he read to her what he’d written that day. It’s a very one sided relationship. But separately, they’d each decided that they were addicted to each other. But I digress. [Read more…]

Review: Crave by KM Scott

This is my first book by KM Scott and the first in the Addicted to You series. While I enjoy reading from new authors I found myself slightly disappointed based completely on my own failings. I should have done some research before tackling this novella. I knew it was part of a series; however what I didn’t know based on the blurb is that it’s primarily erotica. I’m a big fan of that category but I’m also a big fan of a good and compelling story.

Told in alternating first person point of view, Ian and Kristina are a couple of young people who have a chance meeting – not really a chance meeting at all. Ian’s a well-known, published author living in his $5 million New York apartment (I’m already seeing an issue here because I gave up the (.)illionaire stories a long time ago). He’s an admitted addict. Right now, he’s an alcoholic who’s okay with that addiction because his other addition (heroin) is much more deadly to both his person and his career. His recent stint in rehab is still fresh in his mind and he’s committed to staying off the dope. [Read more…]
