There’s only one thing more powerful than an addiction…
How do you go on living when everything’s been taken away from you?
You move… Far away… And bury the past…
But there’s something I can’t hide. When I land a new teaching job and stumble into class, I pray my students won’t notice that I can barely hold myself together. But I can’t fool Colter. He sees right through me. He knows the truth that I’m fighting to keep a secret.
I dismiss his attempts to help me. After all, I’m the teacher and he is my student. But Colter is hard to ignore, with a strong, athletic frame matched by a fierce intellect. I never suspected meeting outside of office hours would lead us down a path we can’t turn back from…
Football is my ticket to a better life. They predict I may go top ten in this year’s draft. Playing professionally will give me the chance to repay my father for all the sacrifices he’s made. Schoolwork has never been a distraction for me, until the day I walked into Professor March’s class. The look in her eyes. The trembling of her hands. These are familiar signs of loved ones I have lost…ones I couldn’t save.
When I offer to help Professor March, I never intend to put my football career in jeopardy. Now my passion for winning on the field is equally matched by my desire for her.
Love’s Addiction is a unique student-teacher romance told from alternating points of view. It’s filled with captivating drama, courageous love, and soulful healing. Best-selling authors Ozlo and Priya Grey share a profound love story that will break your heart. Then they slowly put all the pieces back together again with an unforgettable happily ever after.
This was like a social commentary and romance all in one - it spoke very eloquently of alcohol and substance abuse (its growth amongst young woman, recognizing it as a disease, as well as the role that genetics play), in addition to addressing the issues with the financial juggernaut college football is (how it rakes in MILLIONS of dollars, none of which goes in the pockets of the "student" athlete), the drug and party culture prevalent on college campus, the agony of infertility, AND the permanent damage sustained by professional football players - and the dire consequences of it. All of this with a sweet love story between two similarly damaged souls, who are able to find healing and happiness with each other. The story was told in such a beautiful and unique way and I love that it was written by a husband and wife team. I gave Love's Addiction 4 out of 5 wine glasses.
