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.

    "Great story and easy listening"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would. It was very entertaining and kept my listening. Zoe was a feisty, headstrong, educated, black female. She was family orientated, well grounded, successful, business minded and so on and so on but yet she was not perfect. and I love it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Addicted?

    Can't decide on just one


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    She could have changed her voice just a little when she did the male voices. Sometimes I had no idea who was talking. It was Confusing. It was hard to take the men serious because she didn't do a good job with expression there emotions. But she was awesome with Zoe. The fact that I liked the story kept me listening. Also the fact that I read the book awhile back.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Her sessions with the therapist. They were touching and of course the sexual escapades. LOL

    "Meh😐"

    Zoë is only mildly complicated. The rest of the characters are card board. I did appreciate seeing bits of my own adolescence in her life. One of color rarely gets to really relate to a mainstream character. It was nice, but the author seems not to have a good grip on literary devises, because she used none or used them with no direction.
    It had so much promise! It just did not deliver. I was able to finish it, so that's something...
