Sherry Johnson is young, beautiful, bright and athletic. She has everything going for her, except for one thing. She is addicted to love. Her life is a vicious circle of nightly trysts and morning regrets. Her addiction got her kicked out of college, cost her the love of her life and has left her in complete despair. But still Sherry keeps falling in love. And falling. And falling. Finally, as Sherry struggles to pull herself up from a bottomless abyss, she realizes that she will have to learn to love the one person she has loathed for most of her life. Herself.
Based on the True Story of a Young Woman’s Battle with Sexual Addiction- Goodreads
Sherry has an addiction…to sex. In this, we learn how she tries to cope with and overcome her addiction and all of the relationships it has destroyed. She has a very troubled past and is desperate to find her mother in the hopes that she can answer some of her questions as to why she is the way she it.
The author gives a first person account of what it’s like. This was a well written account based on a true story. Sex addiction probably goes undiagnosed for many people. If anyone suffers from sex addiction, this is a wonderful book to read that lets you know that there are others out there and there is help. The bravery of this woman to come forward is nothing less than commendable. I applaud her outpouring of emotions as she describes the people in her life and how her addiction has destroyed her relationship(s) with them.
