A Memoir

Love Junkie is the story of Rachel Resnick's dangerous addiction to sex and love. An addiction that has cost her in horrible ways throughout the course of her life - from the time she rear-ended a family van on the freeway because she was obsessively speed-dialling her lover's mobile phone, to missing the deadline for her first major newspaper assignment, to failing to show up for her first teaching gig.

Written with raw humour and unflinching honesty, Rachel's story brings love and sex addiction into a blinding light. Although her story is an extreme one, what we realise over the course of her journey is just how many people experience aspects of this addiction and the self-destruction that comes with it - all fed by a culture where romantic obsession is stoked by the stories we read, the movies we see, and the dreams we're fed.

Very interesting, honest and kept my attention. I love when the author is just purely honest in their memoir no holding back and doesn't seem to want a pity party.
