From the New York Times bestselling author of Claimed comes the second enticingly erotic novel set in a world on the brink of chaos.
Lennox used to live in a paradise on earth with his best friend Jamie, in a place where visitors came and went, allowing their desires to run free. But everything changes when a deadly attack forces them to take up with Connor Mackenzie’s band of Outlaws. Lennox knows Jamie is hung up on someone else, but he’s always believed he’s the man for her—and won’t let her go without a fight.
Even though Jamie is well aware that Lennox is one hot specimen of a man, she refuses to let sex ruin the most important relationship in her life. But when the object of her interest spurns her, she indulges in a little pleasure-filled revenge with her very magnetic, very willing best friend. One thrilling night with Lennox is enough to awaken Jamie’s unexpected desires for him. And now that she’s had a taste, she’s not sure she can ever give him up...
Bella's Review: 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!)
It's really hot and I must warn you that you may need a change of panties while reading this book. Or easy access to your partner.
Lennox and Jaime have been friends forever, but they have never had sex with each other - this is surprising to me with all of the partnering and sex that happens in this post apocalyptic society. Never the less, their friendship is solid and they are protective of each other, but competitive with each other, too. I loved watching these characters confront their feelings and find their way to each other.
I get a bit lost with all of the details about the new society. There are enforcers and they are running from the enforcers - constantly looking over their shoulders which I think gives daily life a different perspective. The alliances with other people living on the fringe of society. The fact that they still have condoms (how is this??). But I tended to not think too much about these details and skim the parts that my brain got caught up in.
Bottom line: entertaining, sexy, addictive, dystopian story from Elle Kennedy. I'm dying for the next book - Ruled!!

The bestselling author of the Killer Instincts novels “knows how to write scorching sexual tension” (USA Today). Now she really sets it on fire in a new series about men and women living on the edge of violence, sex, and life and death.
After a devastating war decimated most of the world, Hudson Lane has only known the oppressive life under her own father’s tyranny. She finally escapes, branding herself an outlaw and hunted by the Enforcers. Her best chance at survival is Connor Mackenzie, an aggressively sensual fugitive who opens her eyes to the wicked possibilities of a world without rules.
As the leader of a band of outlaw fighters, Connor can’t resist the beautiful stranger who asks for his protection. Despite his reservations, he agrees to introduce her to a whole new way of life. But when Connor discovers Hudson’s connection to the enemies of liberty, he wonders how far he can trust the woman who has abandoned all inhibitions to challenge every forbidden desire.
