Marcus Albright was a man in love...constantly. From one woman to the next, Marcus couldn't seem to love a woman past those first few months of sex and more sex. However, as the saying goes, there is always that one person who can change the tides. Marcus has an adulterous and treacherous ex-wife, an ex-fling who feels slighted, a snobby best friend, and a new woman who goes against tradition. What's a man to do? Well, I don't know about other men, but Marcus went to therapy, which was one of the best decisions he'd made in a long time.
Confessions of a Love Addict is the only book that I've read straight through this whole year. I have been in one hell of a reading slump, but this book captured my attention from the moment I opened the first page. This is a feel good love story of a different kind. I thoroughly enjoyed walking Marcus' journey with him. I felt as if he is one of the most flawed, true-to-self, men I've read about in a long time. Marcus is a man's man and it's proven by the way he handled the situation with little Marshall.
Sheba, Marcus's "best friend", needs a little therapy herself. You're going to have to read the book to find out why. I absolutely loved Drika. She was down to earth and easy to relate to from the moment she was introduced to us. As far as Prenisha, she is exactly where she should be and hopefully she, too, gets some therapy while there. Mrs. Menchan, whom I've taken to calling a Griot, gave me a "feel good" feeling while reading this book. I smiled. I laughed. I shook my head a couple times at Marshall's antics. And now, I want fried chops with pancakes. LOL!
All-in-all, I give this book five-pages (think five-stars). Nikki-Michelle recommends this book.
