Review ~ Beautiful Addictions by Season Vining

Beautiful Addictions 

by Season Vining

Blurb: Josie Banks is a girl without a past. After being found unconscious with no memory, she was shuffled in and out of foster homes where she suffered years of abuse. An experience that left her broken, damaged, and clinging to drugs and meaningless hook-ups to numb her pain.

When Josie disappeared years ago, she took a piece of Tristan with her. She’s the girl he thought he lost forever—the one he’s never been able to forget. Now a twist of fate has brought them back together again, and he never wants to let her out of his inked arms. But Tristan is haunted by a dark past of his own. On the run from ruthless criminals that shattered Josie’s world years ago, reentering her life puts them both in grave danger.

As Josie and Tristan’s lives become tangled once again, they find themselves unwilling and unable to escape the relentless pull that draws them together. But will the past leave their love in ruins—or bind them together for a lifetime? ~ Goodreads

My rating 3.5 of 5 stars

Beautiful Addictions is a dramatic story of romance, mystery, intrigue and suspense all packaged together in an emotional, action-packed novel. The character development was very complex and really lets the reader connect with each person. Some are very likeable and some, not so much. There are so many emotional ups and downs with this story, one minute you might be laughing and the next you might be crying.

This book was beautifully written and the story line flowed well. It really is not your typical romance novel. Is there romance? Yes. But there is a much bigger story going on that will definitely challenge the reader. It will keep you on the edge of your seat, biting your fingernails the entire time.

This one is definitely worth reading, but be sure to make some time available because you will not want to put it down until you are done!
