Publisher's Summary

Addict Chick: Sex, Drugs & Rock 'N' Roll is brutally honest, sexually graphic, and completely real.

At 34, Amanda Meredith had it all - A successful career, a home, a child, and everything that should have made her happy. She was also crazy in love; his name was Cage, and their love would become her first addiction - but not her last. Some would say that love destroyed her, but what she let ravage her mind, body, and soul had nothing to do with love and everything to do with a deep-seated need to destroy herself. With the prick of a needle, and a shot of methamphetamine, she lost everything- her child, her career, and she lost Cage. Homeless and alone on the streets of Dallas she became a statistic. A broken nobody that had hit the gutter and licked it.

Her story is not for the faint of heart. Addict Chick: Sex, Drugs & Rock 'N' Roll is her heartbreak, her sorrow, and the story of how she fought like hell to save herself, with a little help from the man above.

In this memoir, one woman proves that no matter who you are, and no matter how far you have fallen, nobody is beyond redemption.

Words can't express how terrible this book was

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

People who like incredibly disgusting, deeply detailed sex acts described while they are trying to read about a recovering addict.

Has Addict Chick turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Her voice was incredibly annoying and anytime she used a character voice for someone in the book it just sounded absolutely ridiculous.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disgust

Any additional comments?

This was, hands down, the worst book ever written. I'm by no means a prude and I enjoy reading erotic stuff sometimes but this book was downright disgusting. Every man she meets is the most beautiful man in the world who was put here on earth to save her...*eyeroll* I'm pretty sure the second I heard her say "I want my man to ask my opinion on things but at the end of the day, I believe big decisions should be made by your man." I seriously almost threw up in my mouth. She goes from one second saying that she's a strong an independent woman and then she says things like that. However, that line in particular just ruined the book from that point forward. Absolute trash, don't waste your time or money.

Disapointing

What disappointed you about Addict Chick?

I feel that the author wrote a soft / maybe not so soft porn book under the guise of a book about addiction. I felt it was shallow and not a true reflection of the angst of addiction that I am really looking to try and understand. I felt only scathing dislike for the author and marginal sympathy for the (hardly mentioned) ex-husband and the mother.

Has Addict Chick turned you off from other books in this genre?

Maybe I just picked a bad one. The addicts that I am trying to understand are a lot less self-opinionated. But now I will so research on the author first before I buy the book.

What aspect of Stephanie Rose’s performance would you have changed?

The narrator just had a below-average book to read.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Addict Chick?

The detailed sex scenes I felt were not realistic. I kept trying to imagine that they were real to her, so this is why there was such an attraction. But I honestly could not relate. And maybe that is a thing about me. But I just could not relate.

Any additional comments?

Don't read this book if you are trying to understand the urges of an addict.

Read something else... Save your money

Not what I thought it would be. Gonna try to return it. Poorly written. More about the sex she had rather than the struggle with addiction. Has about 20 minutes thanking people in the end. So much reference to God.... She's writes as if she isn't educated. And spoiler..... The last line of going to find Cage.... Made me wanna vomit even more than when she was endlessly describing the blow jobs she gives. ::sigh:: I'm disappointed about a lot of things with this book...

Not awful but not great

It's not a bad book, but and it was interesting for sure but I wouldn't read it again. I do not like the way it was written. One moment she's telling her story and then she jumps forward to the future, then stays there then jumps forward. Some writes can do that and it's graceful but this is a hot mess. There are some questions left unanswered and the story becomes a self reflection and kind of boring.

Mezmorizing !!!!

The detail in this book is absolutely captivating, She tells the story with such vividness it's almost like you're living it too.. It's a lifestyle that is no stranger to me, and her ability to capture the feelings and emotions are inspiring... In my opinion, every addict in recovery will appreciate Amanda..

Insightful but could trigger relapse

She seemed to focus more on giving me sex tips than recovery tips.

I would not recommend this to anyone in early recovery as a lot of the descriptions of methamphetamine use can be quite triggering. The book seemed to glamorise the drug use and sex and really did not touch upon the road to recovery.

I wish her every success in sobriety however judging from the ending of his book she is putting herself back in the line of fire.
