***Release Blitz*** Always Wanting by Alex Grayson



My name is Abigail Summers, and I’m addicted to sex. Yes, you read right. I’m a woman that craves… no, needs to have a man take my body on a daily basis. If I don’t have sex at least once a day, my body shakes from withdrawals, my stomach cramps with unbearable pain, my sexually hazed mind goes haywire, and I become extremely irritable and a major bitch. This isn’t a lifestyle I’ve chosen for myself. It’s a struggle I deal with every single day.

I don’t do relationships, because what man wants to be stuck knowing his girl may be out having sex with some random guy if he’s not available? You may think this is something that I can control, but I say screw you; you’ve never been in my shoes before.

The cravings may be something I can’t control, but I’ve learned to embrace them. I’ve tried the sexual addiction support groups. I’ve tried curbing my appetites. I’ve been shunned, criticized, ridiculed, and called every nasty name under the sun. Well, I say fuck all you judgmental assholes. I’ll have sex with who I want, when I want, where I want. Embarrassment? That’s a thing of the past. This is my life now, and those that don’t like it can go straight to hell.

But then he came along and screwed everything up. Colt Maverick. For once in my life, I want more, crave more from one guy. A guy that’s sweet and doesn’t match my hard interior. A guy that looks at me like he wants to eat me alive and claim me as his own. A guy that will most definitely not be okay with my addiction. A guy that I want over and over again, not because my body demands it, but because I demand it.

I now have a new addiction. But will he be enough to satisfy my uncontrollable desires?

I have to be honest. I was a little apprehensive going into this book. This is the first book i have read by this author. A few friends had told me they loved her and to try her out. So going into this book i hoped that it would be good. Reading the blurb though is what made me apprehensive. I thought it would just basically a story about a girl grabbing some lovin whenever she could. Although that's fine i wasn't entirely sure i wanted to read an entire book based on this. After reading the book...

Well.... i was not expecting the story that came.

This is the story of Abigail who is yes a sex addict. But, it's not at all how you would imagine. She actually suffers like a drug or alcohol abuser would when they were having withdrawals. If she doesn't have intercourse she becomes physically ill. For 8 years Abby lives her life picking up men every night so she doesn't have to suffer. She tried groups and therapy in the past but nothing works. Along the way Abby meets some other people who also have sexual addictions of varying degree's and they kind of make up their own group and become the best of friends. They help each other and support each other. One night Abby comes across Colt. She takes him back to her place to relieve the pain thinking he's going to be like all the others. She sleeps with them then kicks them out. Not because she doesn't want someone but because she knows nothing more can come from it. She knows she can't have a relationship with anyone because of her addiction. As soon as she sleeps with Colt she knows he could be something more. She's scared to even try for fear of her heart being broken when it inevitably fails. Fortunately for her Colt is not a quitter. He hasn't become a successful business man by giving up at the first hurdle. The story goes on from here.

I found out i loved this book after the last word!! It's so different from a anything i have read i didn't know if i did like it or not all the way through. But when i came to the end i sat there and thought about it. I suppose this kind of an addiction is usually mocked as not being an affliction at all and maybe a bit of a joke. But reading this book has made me look at it a whole different way. I know the symptoms were exaggerated but unless you suffer from it how do you know? I realized i had sympathy for Abby i didn't know i would have. I realized that maybe people with this addiction do really suffer and also that their lives are very difficult to live with.

I ended up loving Abby. She's a very strong, and after reading her back story, broken girl. She so desperately want's a normal life and try's her hardest to get it. She had a tendency to shut people out even her family but i fully understood that and my heart broke for her.

Colt was an absolute perfect man for her. He knew as well as she did they had something special. He was not prepared to give up on her. He started out a little judgemental but as he learned the truth about Abby he changed. He was strong and supportive and sexy as all hell!! I think i would develop this addiction if i came across him!

Her friends also wormed their way into my heart. They are three very different people joined by a common problem which absolutely works for them. You get to know them a fair bit in this story and I'm hoping they all get to tell their story.

The plot was steady paced and kept me interest all through and i will now definitely be reading the rest of this authors works.

Jumped into this book expecting nothing but smut came out of it with more respect for this kind of addiction that is definitely not a joke.

“Which is it, Abby?” I growl, needing to know if I should kick this guy’s ass for hurting her, or kick his ass for daring to touch what is mine.


She shakes her head, swallows, then looks up at me. Her eyes carry the same confusion I’m feeling.

“I didn’t want him, but he wasn’t hurting or forcing me, either.”

“Abby, what—”

“Take me back to my place,” she blurts out, interrupting me.

For the first time tonight, I notice the sheen of sweat on her forehead and the paleness of her cheeks. She doesn’t look like she feels well. My ire dies, and concern takes over. Her eyes once again drop from mine when she sees my worry. I bend my knees and force her to look at me when I get in her face.

“What’s wrong with you?” I ask.

“Nothing,” she mumbles. “I just want to get out of here.”

I don’t believe her, but when I see the pinch of pain on her face, I decide to force the issue later, once we’re alone.

“My place.” I back away and grab her hand. “It’s closer,” I add when she looks like she wants to object.

Luckily, she nods.

The forgotten guy on the floor has managed to sit up and lean against the wall, still holding his nose and stomach. My eyes narrow at him when he looks up and spots us. The bastard shrinks back further against the wall at my look.

Smart man.

“The back door,” Abby murmurs and pulls on my hand, leading me to a back entrance.

After stepping outside into the dark alleyway, Abby stumbles to a stop several feet from the door. I look to see what’s wrong and find her staring at me. The look in her eyes is hard to distinguish. I see pain, uncertainty, and a hint of what looks like desire. The desire is what confuses me. She’s obviously hurting, so how can she be turned on at the same time?

“Blue,” she says softly, her hand tightening in mine.

“What is it?” I ask, stepping into her space.

What’s up with this woman? Something’s off with her, and I need to find out what it is before she drives me crazy.

The hand she was using to hold mine releases its grip and lands on my lower stomach. Her other hand trails a path up my chest and snakes around my neck. I gaze down at her in bewilderment when she steps closer and plasters her front to mine, her tits flattening against my hard chest.

She grips the waistband of my jeans. “I need you,” she whispers harshly.

My dick jerks, and I want nothing more than to sink my hands into her plump ass, lift her up, and sink inside her, but I don’t. I need to get her home and find out what’s wrong with her first.

“Let’s get you back to my place.”

“No,” she whimpers. She raises her hands and digs her nails into my scalp. “I need you, Blue. Please.”
