"Addicted To You" by Colina Brennan

Release Date: June 25, 2013
Publisher: Self-Published
Pages: 183

From Goodreads: "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."

Being a New Adult addict, it isn't too, too often that I become truly excited about a new release in the genre, finding many titles to be extremely similar to one another. That being said, when I heard about the premise of this book, quite unlike any I have encountered to date, and heard of a number of some of my most critical friends raving about it, I did find myself growing increasingly more and more excited about it. That being said, after finishing it, I can't help but feel extremely disappointed. 

My largest complaint about this book is what I like to call the 'memorability factor'- I know that days from now, if not hours after finished it, that I will remember very little of the plot, if any. In a sea of New Adult titles being released each and every day, I unfortunately don't find that this book has what it takes to float above the rest- a broken girl with a questionable past, a family who doesn't understand her, somewhat prudish best friends, and so forth.

That being said, I do appreciate that the lead male, Will, is a fair bit different than any boy that I have encountered in the genre to take- not being the stereotypical 'bad-boy', with tattoos dripping down his six pack. He's golden, and light, and brings legitimate goodness to the book. 

All in all, while I think that this book had loads of potential, it, unfortunately, did not live up to it whatsoever. However, I don't regret reading it as it was an extremely quick read (and provided a few hours of entertainment) and it is one of the hottest New Adult that I have read to date, without being lewd. I do think that Colina has a lot of talent for writing within the genre and I do look forward to seeing what she comes up with next! 

Rating: 2/5

I received this book from the tour host to read and honestly review. I was not compensated in any way for said review.
