Short description:

Lila can’t help herself — she’s addicted to sex. You’d think most men would love a sex addict for a wife, but noooo, instead of taking advantage of his amazing situation, Lila’s husband sends her to therapy so she can get some help. Except poor Lila just sits in group and can’t think about anything but the fact that she hasn’t been laid in six weeks. Her desire is raging–a hungry, wanton beast. If she doesn’t get what she wants, what she needs, she’s going to explode! And even though she’s properly turned down the advances of a handsome, potential sponsor, she can’t help herself when she meets a mysterious stranger in the parking lot who promises to show her that recovery is a waste of time.

My review:

I know about addictions; real addictions, so the title of this book caught my attention.

Let’s start by admitting that it is real: addictions cannot be cured simply because you want to, there is a lot more to it than just mind power, so I sympathize greatly with Lila when she succumbed to the man. That part is real.

But, the title of the book was, “confessions” – plural, so I was expecting more than that scene.

I thought I would learn about Lila’s struggles – plural, her ups and downs, getting better and feeding her addictions and finally, either winning or choosing to embrace her inner demons, which did not happen. It fell short of my expectations that way.

But it was well-written. The narration was smooth, and Lila was realistically portrayed. The sex scene was hot. So, I’m giving it 3 stars.

3 out of 5 stars in my book.
