Overview

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Ethan Frost returns in another breathtaking novel by Tracy Wolff—New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Ruined—perfect for fans of Release Me and Bared to You.
 
As Chloe Girard discovers, there’s love . . . and then there’s addiction.
 
Ethan Frost is everything a woman could want in a man. He’s rich, gorgeous, powerful, one of the most eligible bachelors in the world.
 
But that’s not why I’m with him.
 
I love Ethan for all the things no one else gets to see: his innate kindness, his reckless spontaneity, his unwavering determination to use his brilliance for good. I love the way he looks at me, the way he touches me. The way he makes me forget the wreckage of my past and the twisted fear that still lives inside me.
 
But sometimes it terrifies me how much I crave him, how much I need him just to breathe. I always thought it would be my past that ruined us, but there’s a darkness in Ethan I never dreamed existed. Can we survive as his secrets surface—threatening to unravel us both?

Praise for Addicted
 
Addicted is a deeply emotional, gut-wrenching story about love, loss, pain and ultimately trust. Trust in yourself and trust in your lover . . . are two elements that are tantamount to a strong relationship. With the baggage and seemingly insurmountable odds stacked against Chloe and Ethan, trust is the key.”—Scandalicious Book Reviews
 
“Tracy Wolff pulls the reader into an emotional, heartbreaking . . . storyline about two people whose pasts collide with the present, resulting in a roller coaster of push and pull.”—The Reading Cafe
 
“[Wolff] really has a wonderful way of putting her words together and bringing her characters to life.”—Smokin’ Hot Book Blog
 
“Wolff is a brilliant author who writes great characters and steamy hot scenes. . . . I think you’ll enjoy it. Ethan Frost is totally worth it!”—Pretty Sassy Cool
 
“This book had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. It made me fall in love with these characters all over again but in an entirely different capacity. I highly recommend this book as well as all of Tracy’s books. I look forward to reading more from her.”—Love Between the Sheets
 
Praise for Ruined
 
“Tracy Wolff knows how to steam up the pages, and she proves it again in Ruined. If you’re looking for a hot read, curl up with Ethan Frost.”New York Times and USA Today bestselling author J. Kenner
 
“Fall in love under the spell of a master. Tracy Wolff knows how to keep you panting for more and utterly satisfied all at once.”New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Beth Kery
 
“Fans of Fifty Shades of Grey will love Tracy Wolff’s Ruined! Heat sizzles off the page and the oh-so-sexy Ethan Frost will make you swoon!”USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy
 
“No matter what Tracy Wolff writes, I’m hooked! Ruined is a fabulously sexy story full of passion, intense emotion, and hope. When it comes to billionaire bad boys that are to die for, Ethan Frost is in a delicious league of his own.”—Bestselling author Virna DePaul

    Tracy! Tracy! Tracy! What happened after Ruined? Addicted seems

    Tracy! Tracy! Tracy! What happened after Ruined? Addicted seems like it was written by another author. Ruined had a phenomenal balance of plot, action, intrigue and romance. Chloe’s character exhibited both vulnerability and strength. Ethan was the consummate hero. Now with Addicted, Chloe has become erratic, weak and at times immature. Ethan has become overly emotional, desperate and vacillates constantly between being the strong alpha hero and weak minded. There are continuity problems with hair color, Chloe's car make, and clothing descriptions. In addition, the author's excellent plot from Ruined has been replaced with Addicted having a multitude of sex scenes that read as a filler for the lack of storyline. Finally, Addicted is 212 pages of story (234 pages total) and would have benefited from an additional 50 pages to conclude half answered questions about family issues and summarize what started out with so much intensity in Ruined. There is too much implication and not enough summation at the ending. I give Ruined ten plus stars and consider it one of my all-time favorites. Unfortunately, Addicted is three stars and could have benefited greatly from better plot development and better editing!

    What a let down

    Part two of this series was a complete let down. Chloe kept leaving Jason after he did something wrong, only to return and repeat the cycle. There was no growth by either character in this book. There were opportunities to develop a plot and build tension that were completely missed like developing Brandon as a character and including him in the story, and including Chloe's brother for more than drop by visit. The ending came about abruptly like the author ran out of thoughts and words to type. Book one was great but book two, not so much. Skip this one.

    Just awful.

    There is so little dialog that I feel I'm drowning in Chloe's depressing, melodramatic, chaotic thoughts. The first book was so well balance that this seems like it was written by a different author. There are so many unanswered questions and I'm disappointed in the ending. What happened with Tori? What about her past and the drinking problem? Did the detectives ever find another of Brandon's victims? What happened to his political career? What about Vanessa and Miles? The Trifecta project? Poorly written, rushed, and incomplete. Such a shame.

    I was looking forward to this installment. Very disappointed with it. Just as an argument ends with a marriage proposal so does the book. You do not find out what happens to any of the filler characters that have been added. Did Brandon finally get arrested?? What happened to Vanessa? What about Tori and her issues?? As much as I enjoyed Ruined I cannot say the same about Addicted.

    Bad

    I gave Ruined one star, and would give Addicted less if I could. The teenage drama goes off the roof here, and Chloe's mental flips take new heights. Why the guy kept coming back to her is beyond me. And that's basically all that happened, there is really no story development. And let us not forget the many sex scenes, which were repetitive, unimaginative, and downright cheap. They followed the same sequence every time: his face between her thighs to give her two or three orgasms, followed by massive bruising and hickies from neck to ankles, and then intercourse either against a wall or with her bending over something (which gave her two more orgasms). Let us pause here for a minute: hickies all over her body everytime they did it, really? How old is this author? This book (and the whole series, really) is a wreck and nothing, nothing, is salvagable.

    Too many loose ends

    If you like hot sex scenes one after another this book is for you. The problem is that is about all this story has. Ruined was good and the cliff hanger ending had me desperate for the second book. I was disappointed in what I got. I wanted there to be more closure on many of the side characters. We get hints of Tory's problems but it goes no where. Brandon and Miles should be bigger story lines. It seemed like Miles could have had more to add to what happened 5 yrs ago. The whole episode with Ethan's mother starts good but just fizzles out. Chloe deserves to get some retribution from all of the players that hurt her. Ethan hints at it but really it just ends. Then its a year later and they're married and happy? Perhaps another book is in the works from Ethan's POV? He needs to deal with his spoiled brother, his heartless mother and step- father and Chloe's conniving family. And meanwhile back at Frost Industries there has to be a show down with Rick the intern. It's like in the movie "It's a Wonderful Life" and Mr. Potter never gets what's coming to him.

    Very well written, exactly what I thought Addicted would be, about Chloe and Ethan -- I do hope we get to see another story where justice is given to Ethan's family. for the wrong they imposed on her.  Great series!!!

    Addicted

    I couldn't wait to read this 2nd book. I even pre-ordered it. What a huge disappointment! Never have I wanted to slap the stupid out of a character more. Chloe and Ethan needed to untangle them selves long enough to get some serious therapy. And what was the deal with Tori? And so are we expected to believe that she gave up all of her dreams to get pregnant, and stomp grapes with her feet?

    I cannot believe how disappointed I was with this book, I mean really disappointed, its as if she just wanted to finish
    up the second book and call it a day.  There was no real story to Addicted but instead a constant recap of every other 
    chapter.  Sheez, did the author forget that we are reading the book that we don't need a constant recap of what happened
    in the chapter we just read.  Seriously, Chloe kept recapping every chapter in the first 90 pages, Yes, we get that you
    were apart for two weeks already and seriously, we as readers already know what happened to you that you and why you are ruined! And that's another thing, we are aware of the book title that you do not need to constantly throw in the word "addicted"we get it, that is the title of the book. Seriously, very disappointed in this book, I didn't see a need for a book two if there weren't going to be any kind of closure.  The book is redundant with no real story line.  Book one was so awesome and had so much potential for book two, but it seems like Tracy Wolff ran out of ideas.  If you had no plot for the second one, I would highly suggest to end it in the first book.  And what happened to your editor, did they not catch the part where you changed her hair color or the lack of story line? very disappointed, especially the epilogue, really????

    I have never commented on a book before; however, Addicted is pretty much a slap in the face to anyone who purchased this book. There are too many errors to count including the correct hair color of the main character. This book is such a disappointment in so many ways. You learn absolutely nothing new in this book and there is literally no conclusion. Just whining and running. I would highly discourage anyone from purchasing this book! Save your money and come up with your own ending for these two characters. Disgusted...

    Munchkin

    So i loved the first ethan frost book. It was so well written and i love the story line. Addicted was hard to read, there was not much dialog, yes the sex scenes were awesome but i wanted more of a storyline. Plus all the unanswered questions about there relationship, brandon, vanessa, miles and poor tori. She never gets to know about her bff's past and is also an alcoholic. I gave ruined 5 stars but addicted was not very addicting so i gave it 3 stars!

    This is the second book in the Ethan Frost Series and it starts

    This is the second book in the Ethan Frost Series and it starts out with a bang. Book one ended with Chloe opening the door to Ethan's house to be face to face with Brandon, the guy who raped her 5 years ago. Imagine her surprise when she finds out how Brandon is connected with Ethan. This starts the emotional ride. My heart really went out to Chloe here. There should be a warning with the first few chapters to make sure tissues are close by. As parts of Chloe's past start to be revealed, parts of Ethan's past will also be discovered. Both of these characters have events from their pasts that have made them into who they are today. For every happy moment in this story, there will be additional unhappy moments. (LOVED the surprise visitor scene at the Napa Valley house!) It was an enjoyable ride following these two through their ups and downs until they FINALLY made it to their happy ever after. I sure hope there is a 3rd book because I'd love to see what happens with the extended families! ;) hint hint!

    I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review.

    Terrible!

    I read the bad reviews but decided to read Ruined anyway as I really enjoyed the first book. What a mistake!! It seemed as if someone else wrote the book. It was so predictable and the characters had no depth to them whatsoever that I just didn't care about them. It was so ridiculous how the story was all wrapped up in the last twenty pages. Chloe quickly forgave Ethan, married him, got pregnant and lived happily ever after. There were no explanations about his mother, Brandon or her family. It seemed as if the author had a page limit of 312 pgs, got to page 290 and then realized that she had to finish it by page 312 because she reached her limit. It's a real shame because I really liked the first book.
