ARC REVIEW...Love Rehab: A Novel in Twelve Steps by Jo Piazza

For anyone who has ever overdosed on love—or planned the wedding before the second date—Jo Piazza’s dazzling debut novel is a must-read

Cyber-stalking, drive-bys, drunken text messaging, creating fake email accounts—you’re gonna have to face it, you’re addicted to love.

Sophie isn’t dealing with her breakup well. Dumped by her boyfriend, Eric, for his sexting, D-cupped, young Floozy McSecretary, Sophie leaves Manhattan and lands back in her hometown, crushed and pajama-clad, blaming herself and begging her ex for a second chance. 

But when her best friend, Annie, gets in trouble for driving drunk and is forced to go to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, something clicks in Sophie’s strung-out mind. Women need love rehab, she realizes, to help fix the craziness that comes along with falling for someone.

If you start it, they will come. When she opens up her home to the obsessed and lovelorn, Sophie finds a way to help women out there who have overdosed on the wrong men—and she saves herself in the process.

Love is a drug and the only things that can save us are the steps, rules, and one another. Step one: Admit you have a problem, and keep the hell away from Facebook.
Expected publication: June 4th 2013 by Open Road Media E-riginal

While reading "Love Rehab," I found myself chuckling and smiling throughout it.

A lot of what goes on with the protagonist, Sophie, TOTALLY CORRELATES TO A LOT OF REAL LIFE post-romantic breakup behavior.  It made me think of my older sister and her relationship with her now ex-boyfriend and the similar situations that she and Sophie go through to settle or "rehabilitate" themselves after their breakup to move on with their lives.

I think EVERYONE should to go to a "Love Rehab" like how Sophie at some point of their relationships whether they're together or not. After all, love is a crazy thing and sometimes makes you do irrational things.  Lol.

Trust me guys.  This author did her homework in creating a relatable environment for people that “addicted to love.”

My Rating:

-Overall : 9
