4 Stars!
Addicted turned out to be quite a mysterious read for me. I knew there would be romance and sizzle, but the amount of intrigue and hidden puzzle pieces of the story came a bit unexpectedly.

With this being my first book from this author, I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. I loved the writing style. The story had a nice and easy flow. Once I began, I quickly became Addicted to the characters and to finding out the path their lives were taking and the different roles everyone played in Sara’s life.

Sara is ambitious in the business sense, but seems cautious and pretty reserved in everyday life. Alek has a dominating presence. He wants, he gets. He is also very overprotective and outright demanding which annoyed me at times. However, once I reached the evil cliffhanger, I was feeling that he may have good reason for being that way when it comes to Sara.

I’m very anxious to see where this storyline is headed. I have my suspicions, so it will be interesting to see if I have fit a few puzzle pieces together already. 

Bring on Volume Two!

~ Review by Marlene @ Somertime Book Blog

S. Nelson grew up with a love of reading and a very active imagination, never putting pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard until a year and a half ago.

When she isn’t engrossed in creating one of the many stories rattling around inside her head, she loves to read and travel as much as she can. 

She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and two dogs, enjoying the ever changing seasons.
