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.
