Series: N/A?


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 new adult contemporary romance is recommended for ages 17+ due to heavy subject matter.

Addicted to You is a really great read. Perfect for summertime. It’s spicy and sweet and the best part is that it was surprisingly deep and the characters were wonderfully complex. I loved the additional layers to the story line. It helped me form connections with everyone and fall in love with them.

Leah sure has bad luck. Her poor roommate. I thought it was hilarious that her roommates punishment/idea was to force Leah to attend 20 weeks of sex addicts group. I loved that we really got to know Leah. Not just the surface, we got to learn about her childhood, about her awesome relationship with her brother, about how alone she really is, and through all of that I really got to know her. Will kept calling her his grumpy beauty and I thought that was adorable. I can relate to this because I too have been told that I can sometimes have a case of “grump face” like Leah. We can both be really serious and guarded and it comes off as grumpy. Maybe that’s why I liked Leah so much? The only person I liked more than Leah was Will.

Will even has a scottish accent. Hello cutie! He was just so sweet and thoughtful. I loved how persistent he was, and how he tried to do the right thing. His roommate, Finn was the perfect complement and funny guy to add to the story. We learned some of Will’s past, but not as much as Leah. I kind of wish we got to learn a little more about him. But we did get to see some of the chapters through his point of view, which you all know by now that I love. I can’t get enough of guys POV.

I know I have been going on and on about how great it is that great it is that this book had so much depth, but I think I should also mention that this book also had its seriously hot and steamy moments. It is certainly a new adult book, and has scenes that may not be appropriate for some under 17-18. But if you like new adult contemporary romances, you will love Addicted to You. Read it right now!

    Addicted to You sounds like a great read. I find it hysterical this girl would pick up just anyone only to have them burglarize her apartment. And then to end up in a support group! The blurb is great, can’t wait to see how her new relationship turns out. Thanks for a great review 🙂
