Addicted to You (FlameSmith in Love Book 2) by Laura Kitchell

Published February 7, 2015

Odsbody goes home to Manchester, England for the holidays only to have his family subject him to an intervention for his addiction. To make matters worse, the members of his band, FlameSmith, are in collusion with his family to get him into rehab. With reluctance and a great deal of denial, he is admitted to the rehab center. Everyone is against him, but there’s nothing new in that. He’s a loner and always has been.

Izzy Potts has nursed temperamental, spoiled, and addicted celebrities before, so she hardly blinks when she’s assigned to the care of FlameSmith’s front man. Never mind that she’s a fan. Never mind that even emaciated and racked with the pain of withdrawals, V Odsbody is gorgeous.

Despite her professional demeanor, Izzy has a nurturing and kind way that reaches V through his agony and soothes him to his soul. He’s warned her he’ll have her when he feels human again, and she doubts she’ll have the willpower to deny him. But he’s always lost interest in a woman once he’s had her in his bed, and thanks to the diligence of gossip media, she knows it. They don’t stand a chance. 

My Thoughts…

I am a Laura Kitchell fan.  Her stories are have hot, alpha males partnered with strong, confident females.   I love a strong female character and who doesn’t love an alpha male? 

Izzy is a nurse who knows what her job is and does it to the best of her ability.  She protects her patients and understands their need for privacy.  Especially the need for privacy when they are a mega rock star.   When V Odsbody is admitted to the rehab facility she works at and she is asked to take care of him, she takes the job knowing that this will be a challenge.

 I loved how the romance between V and Izzy goes.   While Izzy is attracted to V, she understands he is a patient.  V is use to getting his way and even goes as far as to threaten Izzy that when he is better she is his.   The going back and forth between these two had me giggle, sigh, and cover my mouth in shock.  I struggled with when the relationship started and how it was carried on.   I guess I thought it was too soon and not quite in the right location.   That being said, I loved how much they respected each other and understood what was going on with them.  

There is something to be said for being rich, famous, and finding true love.   V comes out of rehab a changed and better man.   Izzy comes out with a new career, the love of her life, and a stronger person.  

I recommend checking out this series.   Want to read my review of the first book?   Click here…
