Publication date: September 29th 2017
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult
Sixteen-year-old Bella Kynaston has been the victim of a brutal rape, by someone she can only describe as ‘the scar-faced man.’ With little recollection of what happened, she must somehow rebuild her life. Being the person she once was proves more difficult than she imagined.
To complicate matters, Bella has just met Jeremiah Detrone, the new guy in school. He’s attractive, funny, and smart. All things she’s ever wanted in a boyfriend. Too bad she’s conflicted over so many unexpected emotions. Without realizing it, she falls down a rabbit hole and begins walking a dangerous line between addiction and self-preservation.
As Bella works together with the police to bring her attackers to justice, will she be able to see it through to the end? And even if she does, will it only bring her more pain and misery? Or will she find an anchor in Jeremiah and figure out how to move forward?

My Review
Addicted is the first book in the Dark Road series, and it may be a bit difficult for some people to read. It does deal with sensitive subject matter, so if that's not your cup of tea, you may want to skip this one.

Addicted is about a sixteen year old girl named Bella who is dealing with a very traumatic past experience. She can't really remember much about it, but she can't seem to move past what happened, either. 

Enter Jeremiah, the new guy at school. He makes Bella feel almost normal again, and she can't seem to resist his friendship.But is Jeremiah worthy of her trust?

The story gets a little...hard for me to get through at times, but not because of the subject matter. More so because of the way it's written. The story seems a bit rushed in spots, and scenes tend to jump from one to the next without really connecting. I had a bit of a hard time keeping track of what was going on at times. 

I also was a little bothered by the fact that the one character seemed so possessive of Bella. I mean, I get why he was like that, because that's just the type of character he is, and he's meant to be awful, but some of this thoughts towards her, and the things he thought about Jeremiah got to be a bit too much for me. I couldn't really connect with any of the characters, either.

The ending also left me a little unsatisfied. I know it's because there's a second book, and the author wants readers to continue on with the story, but I would have liked a smidge more of something there at the end. I needed a little bit of closure, and I feel like it was left too open. That's just me, though.

While there were things I took issue with, I also found myself flying through the book. I finished it in two days, which is a pretty good record for me. The pacing of the book is pretty quick, and while I wasn't overly keen on the story, I did like it for what it was. And I may consider reading the second book, just so I can see what happens.

Overall, I give Addicted 3 stars.
