But Zoe feels helpless in the grip of an overpowering addiction-to sex. The walls of Zoe's seemingly perfect life start to crumble as she tells her torrid story-a tale of guilt and desire-to a compassionate female therapist. As shocking as it is compelling, Zoe's past reveals her as a woman desperately searching for fulfilment, which only draws her down more dark and destructive paths. After failing to get her husband to open up to her sexually, Zoe gets involved in not one, not two, but three extramarital affairs. From the sensitive artist with whom she spends stolen hours on rumpled sheets to the rough and violent man whom she can't resist, Zoe finds her life spinning out of control as her sexual escapades become more and more intense. Soon chilling secrets are unveiled, and she is forced to make a dangerous choice that threatens her sanity, her marriage-and even her life. Will she overcome her "fatal attraction" before it's too late, or will temptation ruin her first?Read Less
Fair. Good copy for reading, may have heavy page wear with writing textual notes highlighting or be an heavily used ex library copy with library markings, stickers or stamps. Dust jacket or accessories may not be included.
i love this book, you have to be able to relate to cetain people and situations in order to read this book and also familiar with Zane's books. It's not for the extremely modest. If you want a fun , interesting and a detailed sexual novel, this is it!

You Call This Literature
As a reader, I have been disappointed in much of the current books that are targeted towards popular culture. Zane books fall into this category. I only read a few chapters of this book along with my friend and as I expected, it was worthless. There is an ambiguous plot line,there's several things going on at once, the writing style is that of an amatuer, and list of errors that can reach from here to the moon. This is not a book of quality, nor would I recommend it for beginning adult readers. There is much more sophisticated literature out there that deal with the same subject matter. Better yet, those pieces of literary art are above the sloppily written text of Zane books. Readers deserve better than this.

Sex definitly sells
Reading addicted was my first step into the urban book culture. From then on it had me hook. Every one knows sex sells and this book proves its point. I would definitly recommend this book to a friend because it keeps you in suspense and grasping the next page for more. It also proves its point that there are some crazy people out there that are really addicted to sex like that. But all in all at the end it serves a good point to not take sex too far and let it take control of your life because it will come back to bite you in the behind.
