"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 Addiction—by Brianne Davis

 

Excerpt - Chapter Three

Rule 2: Believe in your own form of GOD, not anyone elses.

 

I was jamming it out when it happened. Something that changed the course of my evening. I got that dreaded text from THE EX!

You know who Im talking about, the ex that broke your heart, but you also broke theirs.

No, it wasnt ATL or NYC.

Its that other one, the one you always think about when you shouldnt. The relationship you completely lost yourself in and the ex-boyfriend you would do anything for. The one that crushed your soul into a million pieces when he slept with your best friend. The one that you were using as an excuse to never fully commit to someone else.

You know the one Im talking about. Dont act like you dont! Youre probably thinking about him or her right now.

It was his text that changed my night after my first SLAA meeting. He simply texted, I was at Target today and it made me think about you.”

WTF?” I blurted in my car followed by What the fuck is that?”

What was a girl supposed to do with that kind of text? Do you text back: Thanks? Do you ignore it? Do you do a smile emoji?

I was in shock because I hadnt heard from him in 10 months. He had to text me that night? What are the chances of that?

Thats when the lyrics from the Chicago song really impinged on me—maybe Im the inspiration and meaning for his life?

It had to be my new God friend, right? Making up for my damaged bumper. It had to be a sign.

So, I texted him back with a simple question, Where are you?” I did add that emoji with the heart in the eyes to let him know that I was being sweet.

Yes, I know its not safe to text on the highway, but it was bumper-to-bumper traffic on the freeway. There is always traffic in Los Angeles, even at 10 pm. Please come visit and make more traffic for us, it would be so much fun.

Kidding, please stay home.

Riding the celebrity homes tour bus or staring at the Manns Chinese theater is not that exciting. Just stay home and watch movies about LA. I promise you—youre not missing anything. If I didnt need to be here for my job, I would never live here.

Now what should we call the ex of all exes? I cant tell you his real name, hes a well-known actor. Lets call him West! Mostly because I think he was from West Virginia, but I could be wrong. I get a lot of the details of men mixed up in my head.

West replied swiftly, Im back in town Toots. Done shooting my CW series in Vancouver, so just chillin!

That was it. Nothing else was said for the next 30 minutes while I was stuck in traffic.

I got annoyed. I was not going to respond back, especially knowing he slept with my last costar. That would make me look desperate and I was not desperate!

As I was pulling off my exit on La Cienega Blvd from the 10 East, I was seething. Then another text pinged, You want to come over and hang?”

A sly smile spread across my face.

Id won the text battle. He caved first.

Quickly typing before my conscious mind took over, Sure, same house?” He responded with the stupid thumbs- up emoji.

Fair warning—this guy wasnt the brightest bulb in the chandelier. But he was fine as hell. He had an amazing body and he was very easy to laugh with. Plus, he was always in a good mood, so I gladly headed over for a needed boost.

I pulled into his long driveway and reached into my glove box for body wipes. Yes, I keep everything in my car. Im an auditioning actress. We have to be prepared for everything. I used my makeup wipes to clean my 3Ps just in case. It was the courteous thing to do after stress sweating in the meeting.

I got out of the car, feeling fresh and ready.
