Publisher's Summary

A woman’s sexual obsession will be her downfall—or her liberation.

For successful African American businesswoman Zoe Reynard, finding the pleasure she wants, the way she wants it, is not worth the risk of losing everything she has: marriage to the man she has loved since childhood, a thriving company, three wonderful children. But Zoe feels helpless in the grip of an overpowering addiction—to sex.

Finding a compassionate woman therapist to help her, Zoe finally summons the courage to tell her torrid story, a tale of guilt and desire as shocking as it is compelling. From the sensitive artist with whom she spends stolen hours on rumpled sheets to the rough and violent man who draws her toward destruction, Zoe is a woman desperately searching for fulfillment—and something darker, deeper, and perhaps deadly. As her life spins out of control and her sexual escapades carry her toward a dangerous choice, Zoe is racing against time to uncover the source of her “fatal attraction.” Chilling secrets tumble forth from the recesses of a woman’s mind, and perilous temptations lead toward a climax that can threaten her sanity, her marriage—and her life.

    Story
    "A story of a unlikable woman and weak plot devices"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. Zoe makes her way though live belittling, insulting and degrading others with a in your face attitude if anyone tries to help her. Her first reaction is aggression or violence by word or action. She doesn't want any one "In her business" but she feels free to intrude into everyone's else's business. The plot device that both men she has affairs with are violent jerks and one a serial killer was not believable. Zoe reacted to people and life like a macho immature 14 year old boy yet supposedly everyone liked or loved her even though she was a bitch. Life doesn't work that way.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Zane? Why or why not?

    Maybe. She has talent as a writer and I think she thought Zoe's attitude was strength which it wasn't.


    Have you listened to any of Nicole Small’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was Addicted worth the listening time?

    I thought it was going to be but the last quarter of the book changed my mind. I think the author was lazy and used simple plot devices to resolve the story and have a happy ending. and to explain the behaviors.


    Any additional comments?

    Being insulting, degrading, and belittling people is not strength. It is being obnoxious and a bully.

    "Love!"

    Listened to this book many years after first reading it when I was in high school. I adore Zane as an author and listening to this again as an adult brought back such nostalgic feelings as well as a much more mature understanding. Love you Zane!!

    "Yasssss!!!!"

    This is the first book by Zane and it will definitely NOT be my last. What an amazing and well written book. To top it all off , Nicole Small is my favorite narrator. She brought the book to life as always.

    "hit close to home!"

    I loved this book. it made me realize that I too may have an addiction to sex. Eventhough this book is fictional, it makes you think twice about what u do in the bedroom

    "Horrible"

    I can't understand why this book has high reviews. This is horrible. If you are looking for steamy erotica this isn't it. This is a poor attempt at writing erotica from the point of view of someone who obviously never engaged in erotic activities. The writing was bad and full of cliches. I'm African American and I wanted something I could really relate to and a story line I could get lost in but this was painful to read and annoying. When she said GI Joe with the kung fu grip I almost checkout then and that was at the beginning of the book. I should have known then it was going to be a mess.

    "Smut"

    the reader was pretty good. However, I knew this book was erotic, but come on!! This book sounded like it was written in a diary by a promiscuous teenage girl from the Projects where I grew up ......
