"A powerful, raw and vulnerable read.”—Olivia Munn, actress, The Newsroom

"Unflinchingly candid. Unspeakably sexy. And oh, so curiously entertaining."—Steve Antin, Golden Globe winner, Burlesque

Imagine if Sex and the City's Samantha discovered she was an addict and her drug of choice was MEN. Go on a hilarious, inspiring, and at times, shocking journey as Roxanne conquers her fears, changes her ways, gets closer to healthy relationships and begins loving herself a little more each day. 

After years of working as an image-obsessed actress in Hollywood, Roxanne finds herself at rock bottom from a disease that is anything but glamorous.

In her first year of recovery, Roxanne has to take accountability for her past. From tales of being mistaken for a prostitute at the Hotel Bel-Air to botching a threesome attempt with an A-list celebrity, she must face the truth about herself and stop playing the victim.

Roxanne's odyssey of using sex and love—as destructive and beguiling as an alcoholic reaching for a bottle—is a veritable rollercoaster of ups and downs, laughter and tears, and a true testament to facing your absolute truth and conquering your fears. 

Secret Life of a Hollywood Sex & Love Addict has the vibrant, relatable vibe of chick lit, the soul-baring honesty of a memoir and the wisdom of a self-help book.

So take a front-row seat into this complex world and the 10 RULES Roxanne learns along the way.

“Actress Brianne Davis takes us behind the glitz and glamour for a brutally candid, no-holds-barred look at Tinseltown’s forever-favorite addiction: sex. You’ll cry... and laugh... as you join her harrowing and hilarious ride to sex-addiction sobriety.” —Spencer Beck, former editor-in-chief of LA Confidential, editor-in-chief Los Angeles and contributing editor at Vanity Fair

“Brianne tells the story of navigating a world where sex and beauty are commodities to be used and abused by those who have the power. Like Sex and the City, this is a tale of finding one’s self and reasserting a true feminist ideal: that your destiny is yours to create.” —Lucy Danziger, New York Times best-selling author of The Nine Rooms of Happiness and former editor-in-chief of SELF

“It takes a lot of courage to do what Brianne is doing in this book. To mirror her life into Roxanne is not only fearless, but wildly entertaining. It’s a world with so much darkness, yet Brianne has not only found the humor but the story to bring it to life because lets face it, we all want to know more.” —Jana Kramer, singer, actress on One Tree Hill, and New York Times best-selling author of The Good Fight 

 

Secret Life of a Hollywood Sex & Love Addict—by Brianne Davis

 

Excerpt - Chapter Two

Rule 1: The key to getting better and becoming healthy is admitting you have a problem.

 

This particular rival was Brittany or Ashley or something that ended with a Y. Until someone beats me out of a role, I tend not to learn their name. And checkmate, she never had.

While we were waiting, we did that uncomfortable dance of looking up and smiling at each other.

Look up. Smile. Look down. Repeat!

I glanced down at her Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM tote. I saw an audition script for the new Ryan Murphy project peeking out from the top.

WTF? I was screaming internally at the injustices during the most challenging time of my life.

Here I was at my old therapists office begging for help, while my life was crumbling around me—no job, no guy, and five pounds heavier from my excessive comfort eating. And the nail in the coffin to my bottom—I was not being called in to audition for a part I was obviously right for and I knew the freaking casting office. They had cast me earlier that year in a network medical show.

Fuck!

I needed to text my agent right that freaking minute. I picked up the phone and started to rapidly text, Hey lady. Wondering if you heard about the new Ryan Murphy show? One of my friends says Im perfect for the part of...” Shit, I needed to look at her sides again because I needed the name of the character.

I casually picked up a copy of Sunset magazine from the small coffee table and looked down into Brittany/Ashleys purse. The letters were J. E. N. It had to be Jenny.

My agent, Gail, whom I love dearly, has been my biggest champion for the last five years of my career. I finished the text, Jenny. Just want to see if you can reach out to DKU casting? Love ya.”

Gail has been with me during all the highs and lows, and let me tell you, you need someone stable in your corner when the parts slow down, and you graduate out of the ingenue parts.

Brittany/Ashley and I did that dance—pretending that we weren’t actually there to work out our shit with a professional. We were just two young ladies ignoring the obvious while the Tibetan bowlsmusic played in the background.

The door behind Brittany/Ashley opened and her therapist gave her a warm smile. She was another classic Mother-Earth- type—damnit, even our therapist were doppelgängers. Good lord, is nothing original anymore?

As Brittany/Ashley stepped inside the room, her therapists turned off the red-light switch as she followed her in and closed the door.

Fuck! The switch! You know, the little light switches the patient is supposed to turn on to announce their arrival?

I realized Id forgotten to hit mine, so Dr. Kath didnt even know I was there.

Way to stay present and alert Roxanne!

I had such a competitive nature that I started to think less of myself because I forgot to flip the switch.

I felt like a certifiable nutjob.

I turned on the switch immediately after Brittany/Ashley exited. I felt instant relief to be alone in that waiting room, not having to stare at my competition while at my lowest point. It was just too much for me to handle.

Dr. Kath opened her door.

About The Book:

Preachers’ daughters aren’t supposed to be atheists.

They’re also not supposed to make pacts to lose their virginity by the end of the year, but high school senior Meredith Beaumont is sick of letting other people tell her who to be.

Spending the last four years as Mute Mare, the girl so shy just thinking about boys could trigger panic attacks, Meredith knows exactly what it’s like to be invisible. But when a vindictive mean girl gets her manicured claws on the anti-virginity pact and spreads it around the school—with Mare’s signature at the bottom—Mare’s not so invisible anymore. She just wishes she was.

Now the girls mutter “slut” as they pass her in the hall, and the boys are lined up to help complete her checklist. When she meets a guy who knows nothing of the pact, their budding romance quickly transforms from a way to get her first time over with to a genuine connection. But when the pact threatens to destroy her new relationship and the fragile foundation of her seemingly perfect family, Mare has to decide what’s more important: fixing her reputation and pleasing her parents, or standing up for the person she wants to be.

Princesses are meant to be chaste and Queens are meant to provide heirs.

Thanks, but no thanks.

I want lose my virtue. Have my cherry popped. Get bedded. Bump uglies. Whatever it is you humans call it.

So I flee with my unicorn to Silver Springs, a magical town where nothing is as it seems.

There, a dark elf shows up to kill me. An incubus wants to devour me. A snake shifter wants to wrap me in his coils. And a wood elf from my childhood won't leave me alone.

Four men fall into my life almost as if by magic. Will I fall for them or will I be forced back to the land I fled?

Eirwen is a standalone paranormal reverse harem romantic comedy. It's part of the Silver Springs shared universe and can be read in any order.

Grab the rest of the Silver Springs Books here!

 

Excerpt 1

Airwind, have you been sleeping here?” Stella—the owner of Silver Horse Stables—says, anger clear in her features. I jump up from where I’d been sleeping on a pile of straw near Aemma, yawning and pulling pieces of hay from my hair.

“It’s Eirwen,” I say for what is probably the millionth time, but move on quickly, not wanting to anger her further. “I’m sorry, Stella, I must’ve dozed off after brushing Aemma last night. It won’t happen again, you have my honor.”

“Your honor?” she asks, huffing. “Well, as important as I’m sure your honor is, it doesn’t pay for lodgings. If you need somewhere to stay, there are plenty of places in town. I have been understanding of your work here in exchange for use of the stables for your unicorn, Emma, but you cannot stay here, Airwind.”

“I accept, Stella. It will not happen again.” I go on, brushing off her inability to say Eirwen or Aemma. It seems to be a human thing; even if she is a magical human, she is a human all the same.

I keep my hair in place to cover my pointed ears, which always seem to bring odd looks. I believe that most would recognize my elven heritage from my features, though. The two elven brothers who own a shop in town definitely realized that I was elven within moments of seeing me.

High Elves—though the touch of Dark Elf in them is clear—understand my role in elven society. We are on the same playing field, though I do not believe they know I am of Snow Elf lineage. Best they don’t. My two months in this town have been practical and have kept me safe. Even if there is no one left in Edhellen to be looking for me.

Silver Springs has turned out to be a haven after my land was attacked. After my parents were murdered by their slaves.

My heart twinges a bit as I think of them. Their demeanor towards me was always cold, their love shallow. I was their obligation, their need to provide an heir to the throne. Nothing more. But still, their absence in my life hurts more than I thought it would. I am well and truly alone now.

Chin up, Airwind. Aemma pokes into my thoughts, her fuzzy nose nudging me.

I roll my eyes and push my hand into her face, planning to push her away. Instead, I find myself dragging my fingers against the soft hair on her cheek. I look over dreamily and see that Stella is still standing there, looking at me questioningly.

“Was there something else, Stella?” I ask, smiling brightly at her. She might be a bit terrifying, but deep down, she is kind. Maybe two deeps… deep, deep down.

I would add three deeps, Aemma adds with a huff.

She stares at me for much longer than I am comfortable with, but I just continue to smile at her, because I am not sure what else I should be doing.

“Just don’t let it happen again…” she finally says with the shake of her head.
