Before there was E.L. James's 50 Shades of Grey , there was Zane's Addicted . Once described as "the hottest paperback in the country" by the New York Times and now a major motion picture distributed by Lionsgate, this wildly popular novel by the Queen of Erotica follows one woman's life as it spirals out of control when her three extramarital affairs lead her down a dark and twisted path.

For successful African-American businesswoman Zoe Reynard, finding the pleasure she wants, the way she wants it, is not worth the risk of losing everything she has: marriage to the man she has loved since childhood, a thriving company, and three wonderful children. But Zoe feels helpless in the grip of an overpowering addiction...to sex.

Finding a compassionate woman therapist to help her, Zoe finally summons the courage to tell her torrid story, a tale of guilt and desire as shocking as it is compelling. From the sensitive artist with whom she spends stolen hours on rumpled sheets to the rough and violent man who draws her toward destruction, Zoe is a woman desperately searching for fulfillment-and something darker, deeper, and perhaps deadly. As her life spins out of control and her sexual escapades carry her toward a dangerous choice, Zoe is racing against time to uncover the source of her "fatal attraction"-as chilling secrets tumble forth from the recesses of a woman's mind, and perilous temptations lead toward a climax that can threaten her sanity, her marriage...and her life.

The novel could have ended a few chapters early. I think I got the message(loud and clear), the author was trying to convey, without ALL the extra drama. Basically, "We reap what we sow."

This book was okay. Certain things with the main character Zoe personality did not match up, it was like she had two personalities, innocent naïve girl one minute and street girl the next minute.
It took a while to get to the juicy parts and the juicy parts were very well detailed and interesting.But towards the end of the book I felt it fell flat, not very realistic more of a soap opera and her husband is a very good man.

This book made me cry in the end because of what the character went through and to think that i judged her in the beginning of the book. Its also very jaw dropping!

My first Zane book. I became a fan and addicted to her books after this one. Zane is the urban erotic book Queen! I hope the movie is definitely coming out!

"I'm just telling it like it is. All of us can't be lucky enough to find true love like the kind you and Jason have."-Brina

M_ALCOTT Aug 01, 2015

"All I ever wanted was for one man to love me, and he does love me. He has loved me all my life. Whenever Jason and I make love, it is like winning the lottery to me, but at the same time, it almost feels like he is just doing me a favor."-excerpt, Addicted

"I want to paint you and hang it over my bed so when you are here, we can make love underneath your splendor, and when we are apart, I can behold your beauty and satisfy myself just by the mere thought of you."-Quinton Matthews

M_ALCOTT Aug 01, 2015

"It may sound silly, but being sexually repressed as long as I was and finally getting f**ked the right way twice in a week was one of the most stimulating events of my life. The next six months were filled with confusion, guilt, and newfound sexual freedom. Quinton took me to heights I had never known physically, and frankly, I became a nymphomaniac. There weren't enough hours in the day to have sex, and when I wasn't with Quinton and Jason was ignoring me as usual, I began to masturbate ten times more than normal."-excerpt, Addicted

Mystery book at the beginning you have know idea of the characters intent. It's an amazing book and keeps you guessing. Read until the end to find out all about the main character.
