Editorial Reviews


Margaret Johnson-Hodge Author of Butterscotch Blues Snatched me up from the first page and didn't let me go until the end. A great read!

Franklin White Author of Fed Up with the Fanny and Cup of Love Hot! Sensational! This is one you won't be able to put down!

Karen E. Quinones Miller Author of Satin Doll Erotic and well-written, Addicted sizzles and satisfies. Zane has managed to pen a novel that expertly portrays both romantic and earthly love and does more than simple justice to each.

Customer Reviews

These books were very erotic & a good story too..
For the ending it was just too much for me, I like to read a book and it seem real not like I know I'm reading a book.
This book was a page turner from beginning to end.
Blessed One

If black romance novels fulfill your romantic fantasies, Addicted, by Zane is sure to give your sexual visualizations color. Addicted, chronicles the life of Zoe, a middle class African American female who seeks therapy for sexual addiction. Zoe becomes obsessed with sex in early adolescence and relentlessly pressures Jason, her high school sweet heart to take her virginity.
Although she manages to marry Jason, the love of her life and they experience financial stability in spite of becoming teen parents, Zoe leads a double life. By day she is mother, doting wife and successful art dealer. By night and sometimes in the afternoon, she goes barreling headfirst into affairs with people who keep dangerous secrets. Blunt, violent and entitled, something black women have never collectively been, Zoe, feels she has a right to toe curling extramarital "sexcapades" with people she knows only on a first name basis to fulfill the sexual desires her sexually repressed husband cannot. She's possessive of her lovers and feels justified in having knockdown drag-out fights with their women and justified in telling outlandish lies to Jason to cover her tracks.
Addicted is a ring side seat into the mind of a sex addict, the vibrant, likeable flawed Zoe. And it is through this heroine's courage to heal that the idea of therapy is made palatable to black people, who traditionally don't see it as a means to dealing with issues.
Flashlight by Parliament and the Funkadelics, grape Kool-Aid, Good Times, and 8-track tape players are just a few of the details that will take you back to the 70s and your own memories of high school. Not all fun and games; Addicted is gritty, risqué and full of suspense.

Addicted, simply put is about love, passion, sexuality, and the realization that a person's life is not always what it may seem. Especially the sensual side that a lot of women spend their lives trying to repress. With a one-of-a-kind style, Zane takes us on a sensual ride with absolutely no inhibitions....NOTHING held back.
The main character Zoe is beautiful, successful, and has it it seems. Yet, we find out that she lacks one thing that she desires: sexual satisfaction from her husband Jason (who was her childhood sweetheart). In her search of what she can't bring herself to discuss with him (their sex life), she finds herself caught up in affairs with folks she barely knows. Think that's something? Well, that's just the beginning....
That's just one of the surprises and twists and turns this novel takes!! It's definitely one roller coaster ride after another and whether you know it or not, you signed up for one spectacular ride when you purchased this book. Just make sure you put your seatbelt on tight and that you're not "sexually repressed."
Zane spins a web with unforgettable characters that you'll love, hate, and possibly relate to personally. You may even find yourself thinking, "Dang, I know how that feels." Each character is introduced with the intense words of Zane's writing. There are also enough erotically wicked scenes that you'll be in a frenzy flipping the pages for more.
If you haven't read Addicted, you're missing an outstanding novel. This is one of the best books I've read this year and I'll be waiting with great anticipation for the sequel! <grin>

Format: Paperback
Initially, I had no idea what to expect when I first sat down to read Addicted. For months, I heard countless praises of Zane's second novel. Naturally, I felt that I would be let down and that all the hype would be about nothing. Boy, was I wrong! I was Addicted to Addicted from page one.
To me, this book is not about erotica but about the power of love to overcome all obstacles. Meet Zoe, a woman who has it all, beautiful children, home, husband and a thriving career. Yet deep down her life is not what it appears and starts falling apart at the seams. In her quest to overcome her illness (sexual addiction) she begins to seek help. Thanks to Zane, she gives her character depth and allows us to see Zoe's vulnerability, which helps you to not view her as loose, but a woman in need of guidance.
Throughout this novel, you witness Zoe embark on a path of self-destruction, but never losing sight on what matters most to her, her family. It is that love of her family, that forces her to seek therapy. That love that makes her take a long hard look at herself and God forbid a glimpse into her past, where all the dark hidden secrets of yesteryear are revealed. In the interim, it also forces Zoe to come clean with her husband about her double life. I immediately thought Jason would run for the hills, but instead he stood by her, and together they uncovered things that enable both of them to move forward. This book is packed with mystery, suspense and yes steamy hot sex scenes that leave you breathless. However, its so much more, its about truth, love and more importantly, forgiveness. It also forces you to look at things beyond the surface, and realize that people are not always who they appear to be.
