Addiction received another type to the list recently. Now gaming is an addiction much like sex, cigarettes, alcohol, gambling and shopping. I suppose that's true. If you have ever tried to ask a teenager to stop playing his video game, you know getting them to stop is like pulling teeth.
Liz Ashlee's latest pre-order, Step Toward You deals with addiction as well as finding the one person who loves and supports you through it all. This compelling story will give you goosebumps as you see Silas learning to lean on others as well as letting go of things to fall in love.
Step One: We admitted we were powerless over alcohol-that our lives had become unmanageable.
There are twelve steps in Alcoholics Anonymous and Silas Manning knows all of them by heart. He's been living them since a drunk driving accident resulted in the destruction of three lives. When he meets Rooney Oliver, he quickly realizes you can be addicted to things other than alcohol—you can be addicted to people, too.
Rooney's mother is dying and Rooney feels like she's dying with her. It’s not until Silas comes into their lives that any of them start feeling hope—but Silas isn’t ready to let go of the past or open himself up to a future.
Sometimes the only person who you want to lose is yourself.

Even the best of us fall.
One phone call was all it took to disrupt the happiness Gemma Michaels had come to know. Instead of basking in the glow of her newfound romance with Ben, Gemma is forced to watch as her mother fights to overcome her grief, while struggling to deal with her own. When all hope seems lost, Gemma Michaels will find a way to move past her grief and allow herself to be happy.
In the end, love is all that matters.
It was hard to focus on work when all I could think about was Gemma. In fact, it was almost as though she was all I could think about. I tapped my pen against the wooden desk and leaned back in my chair, stealing a quick look at the clock that hung above my office door. Still a few hours to go.
Assuming I could hold out.
The good thing about my job? I was one of the higher-ups, so my schedule was rather flexible in that I could come and go as I pleased. Although I tried not to make a habit of doing so. Contrary to popular belief, I actually enjoyed working. I needed to keep myself busy, to constantly challenge myself, or else I’d go stir crazy. That was probably a good part of the reason why I was such an asshole womanizer before Gemma.
I had been so terrified of settling down, at the thought of committing to a single person, that I’d slept around, making it a point to avoid forming any sort of connection along the way. And then Gemma Michaels changed everything, I thought.
The one girl that had been off limits to me in my mind for so long—the one girl I’d been in love with for years—ended up being the one in the end. The irony of it wasn’t lost on me.
