Addicted by Zane



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” — as 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.

The Review:

Alright. So I got mixed up. This plot that I reviewed was Zane’s novel Nervous not Addicted. Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve read them. So here is the real review of Addicted. I’ll be honest and say that I’m not a huge fan of Zane’s writing. This book is one of the two books that I like from Zane. Her sex scenes always seem to be the focal point of the story and they aren’t hot and romantic but raunchy and it usually takes away from the book for me. In this book Zane still has erotic sex scenes however this book definitely had an interesting and unique plot. Zoe Raynard finds that her husband is a stiff in bed. Due to her unhappiness with his sexual performance she ends up being with different men in order to satisfy her sexual desires. I thought that this was very selfish of the woman. But then again her husband held back due to his own insecurities and history. There was just a loss of communication in this relationship.

This book was a very interesting read for me. Usually a book is a means of escapism for me but in this book I was extremely entertained and Zane definitely knows how to write an erotic scene which fits perfectly with this plot. I literallly just couldn’t put the book down! I wish Zane would continue with these types of stories instead of plain erotica that seem to have no plot. I’d give this book a 4 out of 5.
