Addicted to Love
Rachel Henderson grew up in Valentine, Texas, a small town that sells romance. From the heart shaped parking meters to the large red lips billboard to the lake shaped like (what else) a heart, Valentine sells the romantic dream. Rachel bought it all until she was stood up at the altar a second time. This time her groom walked out in the middle of the wedding to join the Chicago Bears. How humiliating!
When she returns to her home town after the wedding Rachel is anti-romance. It is worse because her parents are divorcing after 27 years of what she thought was a happy marriage. The first thing she does when she comes back is a blatant act of vandalism. Sheriff Brody Carlton has to arrest her. He also happens to be the first male who broke her heart when she was 7 and he was 12. Instead if allowing herself to get caught up in a romantic dream trap with him, Rachel instead starts Romantaholics Anonymous. For once and for all she is going to forget about being what some man wants to fulfill her romantic notions but instead be herself and now allow someone else take over her life again.
Although predictable from beginning to end, Addicted to Love is entertainingly cute. There are elements here and there to give the novel some depth, such as Brody's artificial leg after an Iraq war injury and Rachel's parents' story.
Lori Wilde has written a nice bit of fluff that will charm the romantic's heart. Despite Rachel's opinion in this novel, romance is not dead.
