There is something wonderful about a brand new book! Today, we help MO Kenyan celebrate the fifth book in the New Yorker Series about a family who have found love in some of the least expected places. And love is a celebration. In Ms. Kenyan's latest release, Addicted to Him, two brothers are featured. They had been as close as could be but when Kit ends up MIA after a military mission, his brother steps in.
But Addicted to Him isn't just about one couple, it is about a family and the relationships between them...sisters, brothers, mothers and fathers. All those people who are willing to help and support each other.
Love is the most powerful drug.
Kit didn’t expect much when he returned home after being declared M.I.A for more than a year. The one thing he didn’t expect was that his wife and his twin brother would be planning their wedding. He now has to figure out whether or not his marriage is worth fighting for.
Danny was in a trance, ever since she heard that Kit could be dead. She grasped onto the first float that would keep her from drowning, unfortunately that was Chris, Kit’s twin brother. Her mind slowly unravels when Kit comes back, she has to make a decision that would affect their lives forever.
“A small taste and all you will want is more. I’m kind of hoping for that.” Kit smiled as his lips lowered toward hers. At the last second, Danny turned her head away and he ended up kissing her cheek.
“Tell me why. Why can’t you be a husband, a father, and a marine?”
Kit stepped back and stared at her. “Already, that order of words feels wrong to me.”
“Marine first?” Danny asked, all of sudden frightened. And when he nodded, her heart sank. There was no point to this conversation. His mind was dead set, and Danny wasn’t about to come second to a faceless Uncle Sam. Danny laughed at herself. “Okay.”
“So what now?”
“What do you mean, what now?” Danny asked, confused. To her, everything seemed very clear. But apparently not to him. “We are done.”
“Can’t we just try?”
“Try what? What exactly would our relationship be? I’m not the lighthouse girl. I won’t be standing by the shore, waiting for your ship to come in. I have already waited long enough to get my life started. Asking me to start a relationship with an absentee partner is not what I need and is completely unfair.” That was when Danny realized exactly how unfair she was being to him. “And I think me asking you to pick me over you job isn’t fair, either.”
“But do you understand why I can’t be all those other things?”
“You are a career man?” Danny wasn’t sure she cared. She sat down on the sofa and didn’t try to run when he sat next to her.
“I want to be there. I don’t want to be just a husband and father in pictures. Don’t ask me to go back to corporate New York, I don’t belong there. The Marine Corps is where, for the first time, I felt at home. Then here with you.”
When Kit took her hand, all Danny did was stare at it. Everything he was saying should have made sense to her. But her heart didn’t want to accept that there was something more important than her when it came to the man she was in love with.
“I get it,” she lied.
