Publisher's Summary

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.

In this unique roman à clef novel, Brianne Davis shares her own intimate experience with the transformational power of recovery, providing strength and hope for anyone who wants to change their life forever.

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

Critic Reviews

"A powerful, raw and vulnerable read." (Olivia Munn, actress, The Newsroom)

"WOW! THIS BOOK! What a wild, raw, and as author Brianne Davis says, totally gnarly ride about a Hollywood sex addict - and her inspiring journey toward self-love, personal growth, and healing." (Emily Giffin, New York Times best-selling author of The Lies That Bind

"Davis' stories are honest, almost to the point of painfully so, as she tells the story of navigating a world where sex and beauty are commodities to be used and abused by those who have the power. At the end of the day, 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)

Must read

Anyone who puts their life so out there is so brave and this book was more than I was expecting. She didn’t hold back and talked about real things. Anyone with any addiction can relate to this story. She revealed her raw truths to help others.

I feel like you wrote this book about me…

Thank you
I have been a real “ Dirtbag” and I have listened to your book in your words and will rewind it and start it again and probably again & again
Because I know I might have missed important parts because my mouth was hanging open and I was putting the faces and names of my characters in place of yours
I can’t thank you enough for answering my questions ,one on the daily .WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH ME ?
I’m scared and excited I’m afraid and happy

Thank you so very much sooo very much
I wish I could talk to you … I guess I need to look for a meeting for my 1st step wish me luck Susan Scott 🤞

I needed this!

This was such an awesome book! It was raw, inspiring and hilarious. I heard Brianne on a podcast and she mentioned her book, I immediately went to look for it and began listening. I’ve read a lot of books about sex & love addiction like “women who love too much” “facing love addiction” “how to break an addiction to a person” among many others but there’s nothing like reading a book written by another addict about their personal experiences! I’ve been a member of AA for a while and Ive always felt like there was something else going on underneath the drinking, especially when it came to my relationships. After listening to this Briannes story I knew sex and love addiction had been a constant underlying issue of the drinking, I heard my story in hers and the other S&L addicts she mentions. I love that she shared her story and I hope it inspires others to ask for help like it did me! I will definitely listen to it again! Highly recommend!

This Is A Gift To So Many....

I wanted to cry, hug, high-five and berate Roxanne at SEVERAL points in this book. But even more than all of the aforementioned, I wanted to say THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! I believe that so much of Roxanne’s journey will resonate with SOOOOOO many people. Thank you for sharing, thank you for removing the taboo, and thank you for making it entertaining. Somehow, the seriousness of this topic is an easier pill to swallow when peppered with humor in the style with which it is written (and read🥰)!!!

Bravo👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

Inspirational and Raw!

This book is inspirational and raw! Brianne takes you on her journey of her love and sex addiction. I went through all the emotions of excitement, fear, sadness, laughter and joy. Her amazing writing took me to every level of emotion. I felt like I was in the story with her and could visualize every scene. I am a writer as well and resonated with a lot of the same experiences Roxy went through to discover self-love and true happiness. Thank you for being vulnerable and taking us on this inspirational and transformational journey.

Absolutely hilarious

This book was hilarious, I loved Roxy’s character and how she made the changes. The situation in the begging that started it all (trying to not spoil) was pretty funny how it panned out. Highly recommend
