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 

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

Chapter One

The Beginning of the End
I had to get away. I ran down the street panting, obviously in need of some real exercise. Jogging in stilettos past a row of homeless people was only mildly pathetic. Then I saw him, sitting on the corner—An older man covered in dirt with a sun- beaten tan on his face and a needle sticking out of his arm.

It struck me—I was no different.

We were both chasing the same high. He wanted to lose himself in a place that made his troubles irrelevant. But we had one difference. I was hiding behind my double life. He was out in the open with a dirty needle in his arm, allowing his failures to be seen.

But not me!

There I was, running down the street at 11:30 in the morning, having just gotten fucked by a wannabe actor who yells at servers, hates women, and lived in the shadow of his famous brother. My needle was a man’s penis and the attention I would get from it. But I was done getting high off of it.

It hit me hard, I had a problem. A big problem! I only knew one way to fix it.

I jumped in my car right before my meter ran out. There was a silver lining at that moment, no parking ticket. I would have owed a whopping $70 to the city of Los Angeles if I arrived one minute later. Thank God for that miracle.

I grabbed my phone and called the first person that jumped into my head.

No, not my therapist! Not my best friend! Not my mom! Nope!

That’s right, I called ATL.

In a state of hysteria, completely out of breath, the words poured out before I even had a chance to second guess them. “I love you, and I was stupid and not thinking. It only happened once—I promise. I will never do that again. He didn’t mean anything to me. I love you.”

“I love you too. I was so devastated. I want to work it out.” ATL says, breathing a heavy sigh of relief.

This calm came over me. I had my power back.

Thoughts reared their ugly head—I am still not happy. This was not enough for me anymore. Those reflections were so quick and fleeting. It was hard to hold onto anything rational.

“Come over!” I desperately demanded.

ATL took a moment of pause. I was holding my breath, waiting for him to answer. He finally told me, “I’m at the airport, but I’ll be there in an hour.”

I hung up with another lie, “You won’t regret it.”
