Libby Garrett is addicted to Owen Jackson's hot lovin'. But the sexy, popular college basketball player doesn't appreciate all of Libby's awesomeness. He refuses to be exclusive or even admit to people that they're dating. The relationship is ruining Libby and she's the only one who can't see it. When Libby's behavior spirals completely out of control, her best friend Avery Shaw and the rest of the Science Squad stage an intervention hoping to cure Libby of her harmful Owen addiction. They put her through her very own Twelve Step program--Owen's Anonymous--and recruit the help of a sexy, broody, hard as nails coffee man to be her official sponsor. ... Adam Koepp has watched Libby Garrett for years. How could he not notice the sassy girl with the purple skateboard and helmet plastered with cat stickers? But in all the years he's crushed on her, Libby has failed to take notice of him. Why would she when he was just a nobody high school drop out who served her apple cider several times a week? Especially when she was hooking up with a guy like Owen Jackson--a guy with a college scholarship and more abs than Kyle Hamilton. Adam finally gets the chance to meet Libby when his co-worker Avery Shaw recruits him to take Libby on the journey of a lifetime. With his ability to play Bad Cop and his experience with the Twelve Step program he's the perfect candidate to be Libby's sponsor. But will he be able to keep his personal feelings out of the matter and really help her the way she needs? And will Libby hate him when he forces her to take an honest look at herself?
Five (HUGE) Boundless Stars
Libby has an addiction. And it’s none other than hunky basketball college dude Owen. She’s addicted to the way he makes her feel. But she’s also changed who she was for him. That’s always the mistake.
This story had more of a serious tone with it. Don’t get me wrong, it had it’s very funny moments. But It was so much more. I was able to really connect to Libby. Not only did she have a thyroid issue (same as me) But at one time or another our self esteem was lacking. I loved Libby and I loved watching her grow through out this story. She just needed a little help getting there. Coffee Man aka Adam, was there to guide her.
Now you would think that the 12 step program would be a little much to get over someone. But it worked, it helped guide her to the person she always was. I loved Adam as well, such a great guy. And I loved how much he was taken by Libby. I even teared up in quite a few parts. This is an amazing story of overcoming one of the hardest things in life, having an addiction to someone. And you know what? I’ll admit I’ve been there. It made me realize that I was worth more.
Oram, did an amazing job with this. If you’re ever going through something similar just read it. It’s probably better than any of those self-help books out there. Yes it’s a fictional story, but the reality is, it happens very often.
So obviously, I absolutely love this. Ive said it probably a billion times in this review. This isn’t the last book by Oram I’ll read. She just keeps getting better and better with every book I read. I'm very glad I randomly found her one day. I give this book FIVE HUGE BOUNDLESS STARS. It deserves more, but the rating only goes to five. I really think someone should change that.
