Addicted to You
By: Colina Brennan
Release Date: June 25, 2013
When twenty-one-year-old Leah Carter's latest one night stand burglarizes her apartment, her roommate forces her to attend therapy for sex addicts. Leah insists she isn't a sex addict; she just doesn't do relationships. After all, sooner or later, everyone lets you down.
At first, the group sessions are little more than an education on how to be promiscuous. Until she meets the newest addict—blue eyes, killer body, and a smile that tempts relapse.
Psychology student Will McLean is posing as a fellow addict while researching a case study on unusual addictions. But the more he learns about Leah, the more certain he is that his desire to break through her walls and unearth her secrets has nothing to do with his assignment.
As the uncertainties spike alongside the sexual tension, the only thing Leah knows for sure is that falling in love would be disastrous. Too bad love might be one addiction she can't kick.
This was such an absolutely cute and crazy concept really. Goes to show you that sometimes you can find the person you are meant to be with in the most oddest and unexpected of places. This book was a real joy to read and I would definitely be checking out more from the author.
We meet Leah who is at a sex addicts anonymous meeting because her last fling just happened to rob her and her roommate so the terms were to go to the meetings for twenty weeks. It's almost the end of the 20 weeks when in walks sex on a stick Will, throw in his accent and every female in that meeting just melted into a puddle on the floor. I love a good accent as much as the next girl so I was right down there with them. He's there pretending to be a sex addict in hopes of learning more about the methods of the moderator, and disapproving them for his work study program.
But as time goes on, there is a connection and he feels it and he hopes that Leah feels it too, but there are times where Leah herself has to wonder if what she is feeling is real or if it's part of the addiction. I loved seeing the stories from his and her point of view and watching as they both slowly fall for each other. It's always fascinating to me to see how authors put these stories together, and how the coupon or main interest in the books get along. There is hot and there is cold and then there is just straight confusion between the two with a toss of yes or no between them. But it's adorable the way their story unfolds and even though there were some lies told throughout the book it's good to see that if it's meant to be it will be.
The secondary characters in this book were also really good and well liked. All characters were really well thought out. There were times where I wanted a little more, but can't be too picky maybe it was edited out for content purposes. But even the characters during the meeting like the corset lady, old lady and even the creeper guy they all had some interesting facet to bring to the story. Overall this was a really good book and I enjoyed reading it, wish it was a little bit longer.
I absolutely love the cover because the couple look absolutely adorable together and I can see them being Will and Leah. Great story, great concept and remember you never know where you will meet the person you are meant to be with, stranger things have happened.
