I fell in love with the location the author described and the idiosyncrasies of the town she envisioned. I loved the supporting characters - from her mom and dad to the Mayor and Judge. I absolutely fell for the two main characters, Rachael and Brody. They may be two of my favorites from any novel I have read in a long time. I couldn't put the book down and read it in two days. The plot and twists/turns were so perfectly written and keep me wanting to know what was going to happen next. I will be going back for a reread - probably soon!

I found "Addicted to Love" by Lori Wilde to be a fun and humorous story. In a way, it was an anti-romance romance. If that confuses you, read on!Rachael grew up in Valentine, Texas where everything, and I do mean EVERYTHING in town glorifies the idea of romance. From the huge bride mascot at the entrance to town to parking meters shaped like hearts, Valentine's whole economy is built on the tourism trade of love. But when Rachael is dumped at the altar for a second time AND her Dad lets spill that he and her mom are getting divorced, Rachael becomes just a bit disillusioned. So she sets out to change her outlook and actions regarding love and romance.Brody can't quite believe what he's seeing. There's a woman in a bride's dress defacing the town mascot! Since Brody's the Sheriff, and the Mayor is irate, Brody doesn't have much choice but to arrest the culprit. He always thought Rachael was cute and they were childhood buddies until he moved away, but there's something different about her now. Maybe it's the fact that she's all grown up...and really HOT. But Brody has his own demons to fight regarding love and self-image. What makes this story so funny is Rachael's thoughts and actions to try and 'break herself' of her romantic tendencies...and Brody's reactions to Rachael. Throw in the wounded hero thing Brody has going and he becomes a man to dream of, with handcuffs!! Wilde is hit and miss for me, but I did enjoy this book. My only disappointment was with the lack of focus on Brody and Rachael. There was the whole deal with her Mom and Dad, a town divided by Rachael's thoughts and actions, and even a little political scheming, dirty politics, and strange bedfellows to boot. Maybe that was just too much for me to deal with while trying to understand Rachael and Brody."Addicted to Love" is the third book by Lori Wilde in a series about a wedding veil with magical properties to grant the owner their heart's desire. I've read all of them so far and each seems to 'miss' for me...just a little, but enough to impact my enjoyment. I need to add that this book is NC-17 solely because of one love scene involving oral sex. The rest of the book is fairly tame.

Valentine, Texas is the place you want to go to when you¿re in the mood for love and romance. Well maybe not everyone comes to Valentine for love, Rachael Henderson came for revenge. Revenge on a local landmark, and a town that professed love at every turn. Rachael had just been left at the alter, again, and was on a mission to prove that love is not all sparkles, glitter and fairy tales. In the middle of her graffiti work, the local sheriff pulls up and is ready to take her in as his prisoner. Rachael remembers this man from her childhood, he was the first man to ever break her heart at the tender age of seven, and then his family moved away. That all too familiar tingly feeling shot right through her, but she was tired of these so called loves¿ she wanted the great love. And Brody didn¿t give it to her back then, but things change right? Only he didn¿t want to fall in love either.

Brody Carlton, was injured in Iraq, now an amputee with his new mechanical knee he found himself climbing 40 feet up in the air to drag down the grown-up Rachael Henderson. From the moment he laid eyes on her it was magic, but he was still torn up over his divorce over two years ago and has been pretty much celibate ever since. He knew what Rachael needed, he just didn¿t think he could give her all she desired. But he could give her a good romp in the hay so to speak. It seemed that the moment Rachael rolled into town she brought out the worst in the people in Valentine, but she also started an origination called Romanceaholics Anonymous, helped in the politics and not to mention she was offered a pretty exciting job writing a column for a well known magazine. With the good comes the bad¿ but with Brody by her side and always in her thoughts she could make it through anything. No matter how badly she didn¿t want to love this man, she couldn¿t help it¿ they both needed a little intervention and the Judge would see to that.

Addicted to Love by Lori Wilde is candy coated, pink fuzzies, and all that other girly mushy love stuff. It was a phenomenal read with real characteristics, loveable characters and that touch of something special that every woman wants when she reads a romance novel. Lori Wilde has done a spectacular job with Addicted to Love, she shows that no matter how badly you¿re hurt, that it is always possible to find that once in a lifetime great love. If you¿re into Happily Ever After¿s, then you¿ll fall in love with this book. 5 Hearts

Hilarious, romantic¿
Addicted to Love is a delightful romance. After being left at the altar twice, Rachel returns to her home town of Valentine, TX, to seek revenge. She defaces a billboard while wearing a wedding dress. She begins a Romanceaholics Anonymous. People are not happy with her anti-romance crusade. Sheriff Brody was Rachel¿s first love. Will he be her last? Will Rachel learn the true meaning of love?
Lori Wilde offers readers a side-splitting romance. Readers will be laughing aloud. Wilde has a talent for over-the-top characters and dialogue. Fans don¿t miss this one.

This story is so cute. I loved Rachael and Brody and Valentine Texas was a character in its own right. It's laugh out loud funny, tender heartwarming and filled with wonderful love scenes you won't soon forget.

Jilted for the second time, frustrated bride-not Rachael Henderson disfigures the Valentine, Texas billboard as happily ever after is a fairytale. Her first crush Iraq War veteran turned town Sheriff Brody Carlton arrests her for defacing public property.--------------- The court gives Rachel community service while she sentences herself to find a way to no longer be a losing inane romantic. Thus she sets up an Internet site for Romanceaholics Anonymous so they can save each other from the addicted destruction of romanticism. The townsfolk are irate at least the Austen crowd and those who sell the concept of romance in Valentine although some cynics toast their new heroine. Bobby, who lost a leg in Iraq, thinks the woman he is falling in love with is overreacting to the rejections as he believes she has not found the right groom until now. The problem is her web help network makes romance seem negative.--------- The latest charming ¿Wedding Veil Wishes¿ is an amusing tale focusing on recognizing what love is and with whom. The story line is lighthearted fun as Rachel receives an education of the heart. Recipients from the previous ¿Wedding Veil Wishes¿ romances return and the Wilde trademark of strong secondary romances enhance an engaging Valentine tale. P Harriet Klausner
