Friends since childhood Anais Darnby and Lindsay Markham have long harbored a secret passion for one another When they finally confess their love their future together seems assured sealed with their searing embraceBut when a debauched Lindsay is seduced by a scheming socialite. I could climb on my “100 Proofs That Substance Abuse Screws Up Not Only You But Your Loved Ones” soapbox to review this book but I think there are than enough of us who can attest to that fact first hand so I won’t waste your time addressing all the different phases Lindsay and Anais had to go through to reach the happily ever after ending that they so deserved What I will say is that in Addicted Charlotte Featherstone has given us a beautiful love story that’s true but than that she's given us a beautiful love story worth reading What I really appreciated about this book was how honestly it dealt with substance abuse and its effects on the people around us This wasn’t a “message book” preaching the horrors of addiction rather it was a touching story about two people who had known and loved each other since childhood and were now as adults affected by a powerful addiction The uestion that had to be answered was this Was Anais’ hold over Lindsay’s heart and soul powerful enough to not only survive but break the physical hold his “mistress” Opium had over his body I had a tough time getting into this at first It seemed to move a little slow for me but that eventually changed and became a can't put it down emotional read Speaking of emotional I was brought to tears during a scene where both Lindsay and Anais watched on as the terrible price of Lindsay’s addiction played out before them And I have to say I wouldn’t have wanted it to work out any other way because sometimes the best happily ever afters have to go through hell before they truly can be happily forever aftersWhile the cover claims this to be an erotic novel it didn’t strike me as such The story was great and the sex hot and plentiful but to me and Merriam Webster erotica is something intended to arouse a sexual response The reason I’m making this distinction is because we’ve all read books that are labeled “erotic” and found that often times the stories themselves aren’t worth paper it took to print them on I don’t want to see anyone pass up this book because they’re concerned that page after page of sex will diminish the real treasure found in Addicted a story of unconditional loveSexual Content pretty much vanilla with one very brief not terribly descriptive finger at the back door moment

AddictedA devastated Anais seeks refuge in another man's bed while Lindsay retreats to the exotic East There he is seduced again this time by the alluring red smoke and sinister beauty of opiumBack home Lindsay's addiction is fed by the vogue for all things Oriental especially its sen. 35 STARS This is going to be a very difficult review to write Mainly because I loved the sensuality and the angst ridden storyline But hated two pivotal occurrences that left me angry and resentful against the hero and heroineThis was a very sensual and erotic HR I love HR And this was beautiful A story not just about addiction and the cost of dependence but about forgiveness and the dark side of suspicion and doubtThe scenes between Anaisheroine and Lindsayhero were full of bottled of lust and passionate love While at first before all the drama their love was new and white hot later it became painfully desperate and fuelled by memories and ill fated decisions Lindsay used opium in a myriad of ways that always came back to AnaisIn the beginning it was a bad habit but slowly with the erosion of everything he held dear it became his lifeline his escape from the harsh mess of the life he lived the ones he lost and the betrayal he endured The 'BIG' secret Anais hid from Lindsay was predictable but still shocking in it's deception It was a secret that was ultimately reversible in it's nature This is where I started uestioning the story Dependence whether it be substance abuse or something else can devastate bonds between people like nothing else It can ruin and destroy butcher and decimate but in this particular book the blame seemed to be primarily on Lindsay's part What about what Anais didLindsay was an opium addict a dependence that grew exponentially against the problems in his life But Anais's secret was just as decimatingThere is forgiveness of course and the will to let go of something desperately relied on for escape but Lindsay had to let go for himself I completely agreed with that but his acceptance of all the deception surrounding him was too easily given It takes two people each harboring their own secrets to destroy a relationship Personally I felt Anais decisions regarding her secret were despicable I liked Anais at the beginning but by the end she was not someone I would call admirable or likableThis is my conundrum The story so rich and sensual but decisions made with the blame soley on the hero has left me unsatisfied but moved at the same time The ending was very sweet the effects of withdrawal realistically portrayed Even the epilogue was sweet but reminded me that Anais decision and eventually Lindsay's about her secret was WRONG Things should have been fought for Things could have been done to right the wrongs of the past ButSo a beautiful HR Sensual and erotic in it's execution but some pivotal actions leaving me feeling cheated somehow disappointed bittersweet I am very interested in Lord Worthington's story though He was a rake like no other with a darker side fed by debauchery
