Book Tour: Addicted to You by Colina Brennan. Giveaway and Review

Title: Addicted to You 
Author: 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.

My Review

5/5 Stars

I loved this book. From reading the blurb I was intrigued. Usually readers can expect the blurb to be slightly different from the story but this was completely accurate, no need for any exaggerations or anything else. 

Leah goes to group therapy for sex addicts. Her roommate has made her promise to attend 20 sessions after a one night stand robbed them. Now, she's sat through over four months of these sessions that don't seem in any way to be working. Just as she is finishing up the last sessions in walks Will. Will is posing as a sex addict for a psychology assignment to see if the methods are really working. Neither Will nor Leah know that the other is not an addict. Leah could stop going to the meetings because she has done the required amount to keep her roommate happy but she wants to keep seeing Will. Will wants to stop the undercover assignment because he doesn't want to lie to Leah.

Leah comes from a rich family where her parents are too preoccupied to look after her children. Her little brother is only alive because she agreed to look after him herself. Now she is struggling to go to college and travel back home to mind her brother. She doesn't trust well and her only friend, the only person who will put up with her is her roommate. One night stands are a way of feeling some sort of affection without having to deal with relationships. And then she meets Will after four months without these one night stands. Her addiction to him becomes apparent and she starts to question whether she is actually an addict after all.

I have to say I have a hard time writing reviews for books I like without over-using the word "brilliant" and because I don't want to ruin any plot-points I can't tell you the things I liked. I can just say: read it, you won't regret it. 


  1. Yay so happy you loved it! It sounds like a fantastic story with awesome characters and a sweet romance! I also love the subject matter I've never read a book about sex addiction before! "Brilliant" review! ;) Yeah I know, I'm lame lol

  2. This does sound like the makings of a wonderful emotional and fun romance. From your description and the blurb, I see lots of potential for some sexual tension build up and HEA.
