Ah, where to start? Charlotte's writing is funny, searing, endearing, emotional. This book is a delightful rollercoaster, a bundle of humanity and joy and angst and best of all, wish fulfillment.

Now, Charlotte wrote a Get a Grip blog about why it's ok to enjoy Twilight, as it's entertaining wish fulfillment fiction for women. Hot young blonde hotties for paunchy old men has long been standard fantasy fair, so I get my vampire boyfriend, no harm no foul, if I may paraphrase. I heart her for this simple point.

So too do I heart Addicted for the same reason. Charlotte's heroine is something of a whirlwind of neurotic worry and low self esteem - but not in the way Bridget Jones is. With Bridget (and yes, also Bella Swan) you finally start believing in their endless self criticism and wondering why handsome men ARE interested in them at all if they're so useless. Stein's heroine Kit is full of worry but she's incredibly human and sympathetic. Also the book starts with her dynamic attempt to find what she's been lacking and she embarks on what might be termed a 'voyage of sexual discovery' if that didn't sound so cheesy. What she does is fearfully fling herself into a panicked and enthusiastic push-pull clinch with Dillon Holt, who may or may not be a sex addict.

This is where the wish fulfillment comes in - not everyone may completely identify with Kit (I do!) who has had an unsatisfying sexual experience up til now but Dillon must complete everyone's wish to get done just right by a really skillful muscly man who knows exactly what they need, somewhat telepathically. I love it. Their sex is touching, spontaneous, arousing, full of pathos. Kit is a bit clumsy, a bit self-conscious, you may not be like that (I am!!

I stopped liking this by the end of the second chapter, but I forced myself to go on. I've been DNFing quite a bit lately. At 45% I can go no further with "Addicted". I just don't care about these people and their journey. The heroine, Kit, is a librarian and a wanna-be erotic writer. The story opens with her telling her best friend the entire chapter 1 of her erotic manuscript. The best friend bursts out laughing at the un-realness of said manuscript and sends Kit off to a Sexual Healing group for people with sexual issues in an effort for her to get some authenticity behind her scenes. There Kit meets sexual over-indulger, Dillon, who deftly inserts himself into her life as her sexual guru.

I really liked Kit's novel (which was chapter 1 of "Addicted"). I loved her leads in the novel and the bit of plotting we got to see. I didn't think her erotic portrayals were laughable, I thought they were hot! Kit, as a heroine, I no-likey-ed. This is 1st POV and she was in her head...A LOT. She droned on and back and forthed and just gave me a headache.

I liked Dillion, as he was described by Kit when she first saw him. Then he opened his mouth and I wrinkled my nose. He just seemed like such a loser to me; a loser who understood completely how to use his wang, but a loser no less. Don't get me wrong, their love scenes were JALAPENO scorching! But their personalities were just bleh!

I really like Stein's formula of damaged, novice heroine tousles with experienced and equally damaged anti-hero. It just didn't work in this iteration for me.

First off, I am such a huge supporter of Charlotte Stein. I think I have every one of her books/novellas. I therefore obviously love Charlotte's writing style. I don't read them for the sex scenes, but rather, for the intense emotional journey she takes us on. I've had this one on pre-order for ages and opened it up on my kindle with every intention of loving it.

I'm sorry to say Addicted was not my favourite by Charlotte. I've read it twice in the hopes that I could work out the answers to some of my questions/confusions but am still at a bit of a loss.

Here are some of my thoughts.

- I didn't understand why Dillon was at the Sexual Healing support group given his later revelation. It made the set-up feel a bit forced, and I definitely don't know why Kit went along rather than doing what most shy people would do: research on the internet in forums, etc. In not understanding the set up, I don't understand the overall theme of the book 'Addicted'.

- Wish I could have seen more of their lives outside of each other. Why give him such an interesting job at Oceanworld if we only get two lines about it? I was also interested in Kit's job, but it also felt unreal to me, but I suppose that was because I saw her there once and she wasn't doing anything very 'librarian-y'. The whole shy librarian thing felt a bit cliche'd. I'm sure many, many librarians are confident extroverts!

- Addicted was very heavily into Kit's POV, including her insane ramblings and "JD from Scrubs inner monologues" (hee hee, enjoyed that comparison) but it got to be too fatiguing on the reader at times. A lot of Charlotte's heroines are bumbling, self doubting dorks (the exception being Madison in Control, my favourite of Charlotte's books by far).
