I don't really know what to say about this book. I didn't develop feelings for the characters. Sure, I felt bad for them and what they were going through, but that was it. It was as if I was detached from their lives. This is a story I'd rather be attached to the characters and live their lives with them instead of being a bystander.

This is a relatively quick read and the writing is great. However, there were some instantances that I wish the French terms were explained. There were a couple that I couldn't pick up just by the way it was spelled or in context. If I did have an idea, I wanted to be sure. Being unsure left me sort of bleh.

Addict's Last Words: 5 Reasons to Leave a Lover wasn't really the read for me. It may be a read for you though!

Carolyn Moncel Hi Lindsay, thanks so much for your review! I think I will have something that you might like a little better later this year. :) It's a YA novel called Nearly Lost You that I'm co-writing with my daughter. The main character, Isobel Ballou is 15 and would like nothing better than to see her parents finally get divorced but life has other plans. :) If you decide you'd like to check it out, just drop me a note in my inbox and I would be very happy to send you a copy when it's ready! All the best and thanks again! Carolyn
