Synopsis from Goodreads

When Kean wakes up naked, collared and locked in a cell, he knows thinking with his dick has finally gotten him into trouble.

Kean, part Incubus, enjoys scorching and frequent sex. One night, he finds himself a prisoner forced to help a Sempire rescue her daughter from certain death. To gain his freedom, Kean must provide Araya with his semen to save her life, but she refuses it, even though the lust between them is undeniable.

Determined to escape and to help Araya, Kean ups the stakes and forces Araya into a situation that makes it impossible for her to continue refusing him. Feeling betrayed, Araya enacts a scheme to get Kean out of her life. Her best laid plans may awaken emotions that will bind them to each other forever.

      Araya's Addiction is a paranormal romance about a woman named Araya. Araya has a bit of a dilemma. She is a half-human/half-Sempire mix. Sempires are like vampires, but instead of blood to survive, they need semen. Araya doesn't like this one bit because she doesn't want to be a slave to those urges. She wants to be in love and with one person. But she would rather choose death before she gives into her Sempire urges. That is until her mother kidnaps a man named Kean to awaken the urges Araya is trying to ignore. Problem is, Kean isn't all human. He is part Incubus and Incubi are very dangerous to Sempires because they are addictive. But being trapped in the same room together, sparks fly and secrets come to light. Some secrets that will lead to betrayal, but may be just the thing to help Araya.

      Goodness gracious, this book should come with a warning. I swear even my ereader was heating up while reading this and it wasn't even plugged in. I enjoyed the hell out of this. I think if you are like me and you are a fan of Larissa Ione's books, you will love this. This was a super sexy read that will heat you up from head to toe.

      Our characters were fantastic together and apart. Araya is basically a prisoner in her own home. Her mother wants her to stop fighting her Sempire side. Her fighting her nature is slowly killing her. You see that she hates it and never gives in when it comes to the other men that her mother sets in front of her. That is what made her connection to Kean even better in this book. Araya and Kean definitely had great chemistry. I love the scenes of them just talking and getting to know each other, They had me smiling from beginning to end. And boy their sex scenes will have you melting. Wow, I want more Kean, desperately.

      I love how this story played out. Araya's mother is quite out of line taking men to her daughter for her to use. But you do understand why. She wants to save her daughter anyway she can. She sees that her body is basically eating itself. She obviously will do anything she can to save her. I love her reason for actually kidnapping Kean. After her explanation, it made perfect sense. I wish I could kidnap a guy and it go over this well. Ummm, I didn't just say that, ignore that part.

      Overall, this is a read I highly recommend to PNR fans. It is short, funny, sexy, and sweet. I love what Dex has given us. This is her debut and she did an incredible job. The world is new and exciting. The characters are all very likable demon or otherwise. I am definitely a fan and I can't wait to see what Dex has up her sleeve next. Possible book for Fin? Purtee-please? Seriously, the moment he showed up, I just had a feeling about him. You will not be sorry for reading this. As a matter of fact, it will make you happy in more ways than one.
