Editorial Reviews

Review

C.J. West is a powerful and original writer, and I look forward to reading him for a long time.
--Timothy Hallinan, author of the Edgar nominated novel, The Queen of Patpong

C.J. West is one of my favorite indie authors writing today and every time I read one of his novels I learn a little bit more about the craft
--Vincent Zandri, author of The Innocent

From the Author

Many books and movies portray sex as a lurid indulgence, a tool to display our failings as people who betray, victimize, or use each other to meet our own selfish needs. I see sex as a great gift to committed couples and I wanted to write a different book, one about that feeling of new love when sex connects a man and a woman together more strongly than any other experience. Addicted To Love introduces you to Highland Falls, a town where almost everyone is involved in an intense, passionate, and permanent loving relationship. They don't keep sex closeted away as you might expect in such a quaint mountain town. All is not well in Highland Falls, but the residents are desperate to keep their love alive despite the chaos that threatens their town. I hope you enjoy my take on our thirst to be loved.

More About the Author

Amazon Bestselling Author C.J. West's first novel, Sin And Vengeance, was adapted for film by award-winning screenwriter Marla Cukor, and optioned into development by Beantown Productions, LLC.

Edgar nominated author, Tim Hallinan says, "C.J. West is a powerful and original writer, and I look forward to reading him for a long time."

Vincent Zandri, author of The Innocent, says, "C.J. West is one of my favorite indie authors writing today."

Avid fans insist that any mystery or suspense lover who reads Sin And Vengeance and The End of Marking Time will become a C.J. West fan.

C.J.'s Randy Black series features Sin And Vengeance, A Demon Awaits, and Gretchen Greene. The series is unusual because Randy Black undergoes a major transformation in the second book. Many readers are amazed at how strongly they root for a character they despised.

The End of Marking Time provides a touch of sci-fi as Michael O'Connor navigates a criminal justice system that substitutes counselors and monitoring technology for prisons and guards. This intense psychological novel challenges readers to consider all they know about crime and justice.

For traditional mystery readers, C.J. offers the Lorado Martin Mystery Series about a junk man who splits his time between the worlds of antiques and collectibles and his work providing housing and jobs for recovering addicts. The first book in the series, Dinner At Deadman's was released in 2012.

Format: Paperback
Wes thought he was going to get away for some quiet soul searching. Instead he finds himself immersed in a passionate love affair, and trying to solve a murder as the new (temporary) sheriff in town. It appears the previous sheriff was murdered by his own wife, and while Wes tries to untangle the crime details, he realizes something quite peculiar is going on in town.

Oh my goodness, this book had me so hooked. The storyline unfolds in a way that is pretty fast paced; the reader learns way before the end what is going on, and who is doing it, but the ending is still really riveting. I loved the plot of this book, and found it to be really unique and creative. I thought the book had just the right about of romance, sexuality, thrills, mystery, and just plain crazy to make it appeal to a lot of different readers.

I thought the male characters were a bit more developed than the female characters, which is fitting and makes sense, since this story is really about the men in town. Men will do pretty desperate things sometimes, and I think the men in this story personify that, right up to the last word.

Fans of mysteries and thrillers will really enjoy this book, but I think it could also appeal to other readers as well. It reminded me a bit of a sexier Stepford wife type of story, and I found I just could not put it down.

Got this book based on the reviews. I was very disappointed. It might be a decent little story if you left out the terrible "love" scenes that take up too much of the book and aren't necessary to the plot. Yeah, we get it... it's drugs that make them want to have sex every few minutes. But once is enough. This is my first book review so that shows how disappointed I am in this book. I had to force myself to finish it. If you can get it free and like reading poorly written love scenes, then it might be worth your time. The idea behind it was interesting and that is the only reason I did read it and give it 3 stars.

I cannot believe good reviews.on this book. At least it was free. The story is a joke and is even less than that. The ending is sick. I am a fan of mystery romance but this book is just ridiculous beyond words. Reading it was such a waste of my time.. If I had the book in hand it would be in the garbage.

First of all, I am a stay-at-home mother of two and I would know how to run an investigation better than Wes. I mean come on no one is that stupid and negligent. It is just plain irritating to me that at Day 2 he still hadn't interviewed a single person or made a timeline of events. Basically, the suspense/investigative portion of the story is a wash and the animal attraction to Leah is just disturbingly weird. This book is annoying to say the least and I doubt I will finish it.

My rating is a 3,it was okay. I had a bit of trouble getting in to this at first. It was slow and IMO it jumped around a bit. There were times when it felt like when you fast forward just a teeny bit too far in a movie or a TV show, you don't miss a lot but you miss just enough to leave you feeling a little lost. That's how I felt several times while reading this. Something would be said or would happen and it just came out of nowhere, like I had blinked or fast forwarded and missed something. It was hard to get in to but I pushed myself to not give up because when I voiced my opinion in a couple of Kindle groups I was told that the author is really good and that I wouldn't be disappointed. I am glad I did push through the first several chapters because it was a good story over all, a little predictable and a bit unbelievable but not a bad story. The ending was a little abrupt and again, I felt like I had fast forwarded just a little too far and missed something because of how it ended, but with how the book was I am not surprised that it ended like it did.

Format: Paperback
What an alluring title and an intriguing synopsis.

This story is set in the idyllic mountain town of Highland Falls where the residents have a penchant for romance, love permeates in every household. The story explores mainly the seed of undeniable love that blossoms into a heated passion between Wes Holliday, a wealthy entrepreneur, and Leah Donovan, a hairstylist. But not all is merry in the quaint town, trouble is simmering and it all began with a love potion...

The story opens when the local sheriff is murdered and Wes is recruited as interim replacement to keep order. Wes does not have a law enforcement background and is left quite puzzled by this appointment especially when his best friend thought he would be the obvious choice.
Right from the start the story begins to unravel and focusses too much on the protagonists' obsessions... Leah's burning sexual needs take center stage and Wes's mind is easily lured to below the belt. With so little resistance Wes's newfound responsibilities are overpowered by their mutual lust.....hum...

As the body count goes up a pattern starts to emerge, happily married men are falling victims to their wives sudden change in behaviour. At this point I thought we were getting out of the bedroom and into the real suspense side of the plot. I was soon disappointed as I turned the pages the action became so predictable and the outcome so obvious that my mind started to wander and I fought to maintain interest. The transition between chapters was choppy and became even more rushed towards the end when all hell broke loose and the town fell into chaos. But have no fear our super hero, the great interim sheriff manages to save the day and get on with his life.
