Fully expanded, it delves into the relationship that Vicky and Kade develop during their tenure at the Love Addicts Anonymous retreat.

    I've had mixed emotions about this book right from the beginning, but by the end, a very satisfying one at that, I realized that despite the angst, and drama and deep rooted issues that both of our mains in COUNTING ON YOU by J.C Reid and Jackie Steele have, I feel content with where the story went and how it got there.

    Vicky and Kade are an unlikely duo. Meeting at Rehab for a sex addiction (his) and a love addiction (hers) is really not the best foundation for a solid relationship. Regardless

    “Remembering you is easy. It’s letting go that’s the hard part…”

    Counting on You was a book that caught my attention from the synopsis, however, what I thought I was getting and what I actually read were two very different things, but in a very good way. JC Reed and Jackie Steele deliver a unique concept to me and one that had me in hysterics just as much as I found myself swooning. For a light hearted read this book still had that emotion
    Usually I'm a fan of J.C. Reed but this book just didn't do it for me. Kaiden, the hero, is likable early on but Vicky is just plain nuts. She's whiney and nervous all of the time. And she's obsessed.
    Although Vicky is madly in love with another man she begins to have feelings for Kaiden when they find themselves roommates for 6 weeks in a location where they are cut off from the outside world.
    No cellphones. No internet. They are in a rehab center but not for drugs or alcohol. It's something much

    WOW!! What an addictive, unputdownable, LOL read. A total emotional rollercoaster that kept me reading all night long.

    Kaiden Wright, known as Kade, meets Vicky in rehab. They are both in here due to unfortunate events and misunderstandings. Both of them do not really have an addiction, but have to attend the LAA center anyway. Their first confrontation---hilarious.

    Counting On You is a story about new beginnings in love and in life.

    Not having read any other works by the authors before, I was really intrigued with the synopsis and just how well the authors were going to execute the story. Needless to say, I was impressed with how entertaining the story was. The beginning felt a bit flat for me, but it picked up the pace rather quickly and it all worked out in the end.

    I love to read everything by JC but this one is truly the best one I've read by her so far. This book...
    it stunned me several times. It spoke to me on the most inner levels.

    They say distance makes the heart grow fonder.
    That’s not true at all.
    My heart fell for him while we were together.
    It leaped when his eyes fluttered.
    It jumped out of my chest when he looked at me.
    Now it’s breaking at the sight of him.
    Kade Wright is perfection.

    It tears your heart apart, and mends it again. It makes you laugh.

    I really enjoyed this one. The premise of the storyline is great and not something I have encountered before.

    Vicky and Kade getting to know each other and helping each other along is great and I really enjoyed watching them grow. 

    I don't want to ruin the story for anyone, but this is definitely a book that you want to give a go. Its my first by Reed, but it won't be my last!

    Counting On You is a fun romance with some surprise twists at the end.

    Vicky is a bit of a stalker. She is being strung along by a boyfriend who claims he only took out the restraining order against her because his family made him do it! Vicky is innocent, naive, unworldly and extremely gullible! She ends up in LAA Rehab, Love Addicts Anonymous.

    This is an unlikely story of a sex addict and a love addict who found love in the most unlikely place.

    Vicky is obsessed with someone which made her do some crazy stuff – that’s why she’s in therapy. Although, she believed otherwise. She doesn’t believe that she needs help, or she should be here. (Yes, I think she’s a little bit deluded – I mean, how would you like someone who is in denial and has delusions?).

    This is a story about two people who met at a rehab programme. One is a love addict and the other is a sex addict.

    Kaiden Wright is a successful CEO with a six-pack abs. He is not into relationships and definitely no repeats. He came up with the idea of a 365-day non-stop sex calendar which landed him in hot water with his company and the reason why he ended up in a six weeks rehab programme.

    This was my first time reading JC Reed. I've been on a big romantic comedy reading kick this year, devouring them almost exclusively. I loved many of them, and there have been some that just didn't work for me. Unfortunately, Counting on You falls into the latter category for me. I'll preface this by saying that it could very well be a case of "it's me, it's not the book." But either way, the fact remains that this just wasn't for me.

    I do love JC Reed books so was excited to be asked to read this one from her.

    This book told the story of two adicts, a Love Adict and a Sex Adict who in their own circumstances are sent to the same rehab facility. (I never actually knew there was such a facility so this was an education) As it turns the rehab facility think it would be a great idea of pairing different couple up with each and not all the same sex either.

    I really enjoyed this story and it's wonderful characters. Two unlikely people... It's not every day you have a Love addict and a Sex addict thrown together in rehab therapy, to try and fix each other. Hmmmm what could go wrong?

    This book was a fun, hilarious, sexy, emotional roller coaster ride. And it's definitely one I could see myself reading again. The authors have done an amazing job and I highly recommend picking this book up and giving it a read.
