Falling in love is based on a true
story of a young girl’s battle with addiction.
After being abandoned by her mother, left to live with her
uncaring aunt and abuser uncle, Sherry Johnson starts
searching for love. That search got her kicked out of
college and cost her many good relationships.
Eventually Sherry moves to New York City and joins a
support group. With the help of this group her confidence
grows, she makes friends who like her for who she is and
fights her addictions. She even starts playing soccer again.
I saw the cover to this novel and knew that I had to read
this. Sex addiction is not something I am familiar with, but
I truly enjoyed the story. Once I started reading I could
not stop. It was very difficult not to immediately feel
sorry for the life Sherry was dealt. Sherry had a rough
childhood and was given no love, ever, in her life.
This is not a story of sex, actually there was very little
actual sex in the story. This is a story of a girl living
through her addiction of her strength and her ability to
find herself and move past her history. This book opened my
eyes to the struggles an addict goes through and how very
important the support they receive is to their sobriety.
This is a true 5 star novel.
