Addicted to You by Colina Brennan
Publication date: June 25th 2013
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult
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.
5 of 5 Addicted to You
Addicted To You is not your average story about girl meets boy and falls in love and is addicted to each other. No it is so much more. I can't believe this is the debut book for Colina Brennan because I just loved it to pieces and it felt like Colina had been writing for years. I love how she stepped outside the box and did a book about sex addiction. This is such a serious issue amongst teenage and college age girls that no one is talking about that I loved the story and how it unfolded.
Leah Carter is anything but normal. She is a beautiful girl with a good head on her shoulders except for one thing.She is addicted to hook ups. She loves the one night stands, no strings attached hook ups. Her best friend and roommate is worried about her because on one of these hookups Leah's house gets burglarized by her hook up. So her roommate tells her she needs to go to therapy before she gets hurt. At first Leah thinks her friend is crazy but she decides to give the therapy a chance. When she first goes to the sessions she realizes that it is like a hook up place where they exchange the crazy stories of what they have done and what they want to do. Then in comes a new addict with blue eyes to die for and a body that is rocking and a smile to die for and Leah is about to throw away all this therapy stuff to have one night with this gorgeous guy.
Will McLean is in college and has to do a research project. Will picks unusual addictions as his research. So he goes under cover to the sex addicts therapy session and when he gets there he is intrigued by this sexy girl there. As he talks to her and gets to know her better he finds himself feeling feelings that he never thought he would. He wants to get to know Leah better but how can he? He decides to get closer to Leah and find out the root of her addiction and try and help her over come it. But what happens is the crux of this novel and I will not spoil it for anyone because this is a HOT ASS SUMMER READ! This book has everything in it. I love how the build up was slow and not instant and how Leah and Will worked together to get through the hard times. This is a beach read and make sure you have a cup full of ice cubes because you are going to need them!
I’m a new adult author with a love for the fantastical and the romantic. My new adult contemporary novel ADDICTED TO YOU will be available June 25.
