Review ~ Slade by Victoria Ashley

Slade (Walk Of Shame, #1)Title: Slade
Author: Victoria Ashley
Series: Walk Of Shame #1
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: June 3rd 2014







My name is Slade Merrick and I’m a f*cking sex addict . . .

I’ve been told it’s a problem. But I see it as a passion; something that I’m good at. And who the f*ck stops something that they’re good at?

They want me to seek help; get my c*ck in check. Don't judge my lifestyle. You’re no better than me. Just admit it, you like to f*ck too. Sex is what I do best; my own personal high, so I embrace it instead of being ashamed.

When I'm not f*cking, I'm slinging drinks at Walk Of Shame or stripping my way into your bed; another thing I'm good at. Every woman’s darkest fantasy brought to life.

So, am I stopping? F*ck no. Sex is beautiful, raw and erotic and I get off knowing I can have it with anyone I want . . . with the exception of her.

Aspen.

She walks into the club swaying those hips, instantly drawing my c*ck to attention. She’s pure perfection. That is, until she opens that mouth, drawing me in and for the first time in forever I want something more than sex. I want her and she hates it.

Things get dirty. Dirty is what I like; it’s how I live. But . . . she’s playing a game she can never win.

***Author's note*** Due to strong language and a very high amount of dirty, sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18. This is #1 in the Walk Of Shame series of novellas that will all be STANDALONE reads. If you're not into, cocky bad boys with filthy mouths and even filthier sex, then this series is not for you. If you are . . . then, come meet the dirty boys of Walk Of Shame.

I just loved this book! It was a little dirty, had a whole lot of sexual (frustration) tension and amusing banter between characters who clearly don't like one another. It was everything I love in a hot romance with plenty of steamy scenes thrown into an entertaining plot. What more could I ask for?

Slade… Oh how I loved him! He’s the arrogant, confident guy who knows he looks good and women never knock him back. He's a stripper, need I say more? Right from that first chapter he had me hooked and I had to see who caught his eye. But behind his strong front, he has some secrets that had my heart aching.

Aspen! She was a great match for Slade. He kept hitting on her and even though she was worked up, she had the courage to knock him back (I'm pretty sure I would've buckled under the pressure). Slade is quite forward with her and I loved that she didn't want to back down. But there were some things that stuck with me and I knew she was hiding something too.

There are some awesome secondary characters in this book too. Slade’s work mates Hemy and Cale, even Sarah the bar chick. Aspens friend Kayla was fun too. Even though they didn't play star roles in this book they made an impact and I am keen to see more of them.

When Slade and Aspen get together, it sure was entertaining; the banter was hilarious and the sexual tension was so thick! They grate on each other's nerves, and can't decide whether they hate each other or want to get dirty. When they do get dirty it was electrifying! My only complaint was the ending was a little rushed, I would've liked a bit more, but I was assured in the back that we would see more of them throughout the series… And I cannot wait!

  1. I'd already noticed the cover (how could I miss it !) but I didn't know the story was so good. I love it when the main characters fight and bicker, it's so much funnier... and hotter ;)

  2. Ahh that so sounds like one I need! I don't think I've read a stripper before. At least not a main character one. Interesting.

  3. I bought this one this summer, and somehow I keep forgetting to read it!! And I'm in between books, so I thought I'd start at lunchtime.... so I look in my bag, and realize my kindle is at home because I brought a print book. Sigh. So I guess I will try to remember to sneak this in this weekend. But that cover? Holy drool, I would DIE!! I'm glad you liked it so much, it gives me confidence that I will!

  5. Humour and sex go hand-in-hand if you ask me, and from the tone of your review it appears as though Ashley pulled that off very well. Even though the ending was a tad bit rushed, I'm glad to see that it didn't detract too much for the overall story, because you still gave it 5 stars. Nice!

  6. Is he really a sex addict, because I don't like when sex addiction is played off like it's just someone who has a lot of sex. Or is he a "sex addict" ... something just joked about because he's a man-whore? I'm totally cool with option 2. lol.

  13. I think he's more of a man whore!! Always picks a girl up for one night only... no second sex dates. He was a hoot though! Loved reading about him.

  17. Naomi, I can feel your excitement for this book! Fantastic review! I too love this sort of book. (you're shocked, I know) Slade sounds like just the sort of guy I love...to see knocked back. ;) But get his girl, too. I'm glad this was such a great beginning for a series. (especially since I one-clicked it!) :)

    Yay I'm so glad you read this one, I told you you'd love it!! I finished Hemy yesterday & it was sooo good too. It comes out in about a week so don't worry. Hemy is definitely a lover and won't give up, I loved him and his story is also a dark one.
