Description: For ten long years, Gunnery Sergeant Vic Williams had been planning for this moment--the day he crossed paths again with the man who broke his heart. He had rehearsed his look of indifference, his cutting remarks, even while he imagined Damien Walker on his knees and begging his forgiveness...among other things. What Vic hadn't counted on, however, is the love that slams into him the instant he sees Damien standing before him. Captain Damien Walker is stunned to discover the man who'd broken his heart is now the lesser-ranking Marine under his command. He craves the chance to make Vic suffer for walking out on him all those years ago, but no more so than he craves that special something only Vic can give...and the love they once shared. Forced to reconcile their differences for the sake of their military careers, Vic and Damien are rapidly pulled under by an addiction to each other neither can control...or live without a second longer.

"...A very heartfelt story...The BDSM...[is]...a little kinky, and very sexy. It left me wanting more! Addicted is a romance laced with realism...a very good story."--Nikki, Rainbow Reviews
"4 1/4 Stars!...Cassie Stevens has written an excellent story of love lost and found again and both characters were well drawn...The sex was incredibly hot when the two men got together, and the BDSM scenes were well done...I enjoyed this book and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a hot romance with some spicy BDSM thrown in!"--Jessewave, Reviews By Jessewave
"5 Angels!...A wonderful story centering around two career Marines...The characters are just the way I like my gay male characters to read--hard, determined, successful, with no silly girly softness allowed. I also enjoyed the fact that they are both wonderful fathers who put their children's needs ahead of their own. Their passion and lust was clear, but the love overpowered all the other emotions."--NeNe, Fallen Angel Reviews
"...A perfect example of what happens when lovers don't talk to each other, and one makes a decision that affects them both...Ms. Stevens does a nice job expressing their emotions and interjects vital pieces of information regarding their past without it seeming like an information jump. It's obvious that they crave what only the other can give them, and the introduction of the BDSM portion of their lifestyle was a nice addition to the plotline. Both men have careers on the line and they have to decide if being together is worth the risk, and whether they are up to the challenge of hiding their love."--Mystical Nymph, Literary Nymphs Reviews
"...Fantastic! Damien and Vic had an explosive past together, and pride and personal decisions tore them apart. The passion between them was perfect; the sex was hot with just the right amount of BDSM...I'm looking forward to the direction the author Cassie Stevens take these two heroes in with the upcoming book. Fans of Ms. Stevens' work will love Vic and Damien and will find Addicted to be an addiction."--Ley, Joyfully Reviewed
Setting his worn briefcase on the desk, Damien stood behind it, but he refused to sit down, refused to put himself into a position subservient to Vic. Doing so smacked of too many other things, too many other wants too long unfulfilled.
"So ... what do you have for me?" He hated the way his words kept coming out. "What's to sign?" He reached for the folder.
Vic placed it on the glass-topped desk and flipped it open. "Standard stuff. Pens are in your top desk drawer."
Everything was highlighted and tagged where Damien needed to sign. More of the same old stuff. He had no choice but to sit in order to review and sign the pages. If only his hand would quit shaking. Had Vic noticed the hard-on swelling his trousers? Did Damien dare look to see if Vic sported one, too?
The chair sighed as he sank into it. It sounded too much like his own sigh whenever Vic slid his cock deep inside his ass. Damien grappled for something to put distance between his feelings and this man. Something to erase the image of himself staring up at Vic with a flogger in his hand ready to give Damien everything he needed. Anything...
"Have a seat, Gunny. This could take a while." He kept his gaze locked on the stack of paperwork, not on the man easing into the chair opposite him. "I understand you were recently promoted. Pretty young to be a gunnery sergeant."
"Right place, right time, took advantage of opportunities. And, with all due respect, sir ... you're pretty old to be a captain."
The dig hit its intended target. They both knew it was a lie. Rank didn't come easy, whether you were officer or enlisted.
Damien scribbled his signature again and flipped to the next page. "How's your wife?" The question came out as a sneer. He couldn't help it. Hurt soured his stomach and left an acidic taste in his mouth.
"Happily married to the man of her dreams," Vic replied. "Yours?"
From the periphery of his vision, Damien saw Vic's eyebrow quirk. "Moved on to bigger and better things and took my two kids with her."
"Two kids, huh? How'd that happen? She siphon the cum out of one of your condoms?"
Damien's head snapped up. Rage boiled from his eyes.
Vic was already on his feet and heading for the door. "I'm sure you don't need me up your ass while you sign all that. The corporal will be in soon to get you started on your computer. I'll get the folder from you later ... sir."
It took every ounce of will and discipline his body possessed to stay in his seat, when all Damien wanted to do was haul Vic back here and show him who was really in charge.
