We’re both addicted to sex, just not with each other.
High school friends – nothing more.
That was our promise to each other, because let’s face it, infidelity spreads like a disease.
And it’s easier to remain friends than hurt the only person you ever cared about – or so we thought.
Read on for my thoughts on Cheaters Anonymous. No true spoilers, promise.
Cheaters Anonymous is an amazingly entertaining stand alone novel. However, it has been suggested by the author to read the prequel When Things Go Wrong (that is a link to my review of WTGW here on KB) before Cheaters Anonymous to get some background and a feel for where Nick (Scar) and Jules started.
I absolutely loved Scar and Jules together. They are sexy, funny, snarky, entertaining, laugh out loud and spill some tears… and did I mention sex? Yeah, these two are simply amazing.
It’s been six years since Jules and Nick survived an avalanche together in such a hot and unconventional manner. (Hey, you have to do what you gotta do to preserve body heat in that situation. *wink*) Jules is now an ER doctor and Nick is the owner of a strip club – both now in New York City. They met up again in a hilarious fashion (think embarrassing penis pump placement). Jules will track down Nick at his club and they will reconnect in every way possible.
I truly think this is a novel that you just have to experience by reading it yourself. It will touch your emotions on so many levels that you will never see coming. The writing is solid, and moves along at a good pace. I never felt I was “waiting” for the next part to happen. Jules has gone through a lot since she left Nick on the ski slopes. She worries that it might be too much.
There are layers to Cheaters Anonymous that looking at the cover or reading the synopsis just will not clue you in on. Yes, we have a very hot, sexual couple. Yes, they are trying not to fall in love. But there is more. An unresolved incident from Jules’ past and an addiction that really is not addressed often in fiction.
I honestly believe this is a novel that is worth your time. While I would recommend it for a mature audience, it is so much more than erotica… it is the story of addiction, resolution and a lasting love. Pick this one up and simply enjoy it – on every level. I gave it a rare 5 stars, because this one went above and beyond a great story.
*I received an e-ARC of Cheaters Anonymous from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. That does not change what I think of this novel.*
This novel releases on April 21, 2015 and is available for the Kindle.
