Love Junkie: A Book Review
A Memoir by Rachel Resnick.
Its not often that I come across a book packed with such perseverance, hope and understanding for ones emotional well-being. This book is one that I read recently and found to be outstanding. The tale of this woman’s life is one to be heard because it is a very similar story to many.
There are two kinds of men, Rachel Resnick says, the ones who remind her of her father, and the ones who remind her of her brother.
“Those who remind me of my father tend to be the ones I fall in love with – the dangerous ones. The ones who can’t commit, who abandon, who betray. Of course, they arrive in charming, gifted packages. Those who remind me of my brother fill me with sisterly love, a protectiveness, an urge to tease, a deep and abiding affection.”
Love Junkie is the book of the month at InTheRooms.com and author, Rachel Resnick is a proud member of the popular social networking which provides a place for people in recovery from around the world to meet and share their stories.
TheDotMack from InTheRooms.com summarized the book perfectly writing, “Resnick mines this lesser known and often misunderstood addiction with brutal honesty, vivid storytelling and black humor. The book charts an emotional journey from hitting bottom through the hard road of recovery, with plenty of destructive relationships along the way.
As the story unfolds, Resnick’s past keeps returning through powerful memories. This book provides an intimate and bracing portrait of one love and sex addict’s struggle to break out of a lifelong damaging pattern. LOVE JUNKIE adds a deeply personal voice to the current cultural dialogue about love, sex, romance and relationship addiction.”
