Author Interview ~ Colina Brenna

I'm pleased to have Colina Brenna, the author of Addicted to You with me today.


Tell us what your book is about in 140 characters or less.

Addicted to You is about Leah, who has no interest in love because she's convinced everyone eventually lets you down. Then she meets Will. Dun dun dun! :P

Is this book part of a series?

Yes. There will be a second novel in the Addicted to You universe, which will focus on a separate couple.

What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?

Probably the scene where Leah and her brother run into Will at the party. A lot of things happen between the beginning of the night and the end of it, and it was fun writing about how their relationship subtly shifts.

What’s your most embarrassing moment?

I’ve had too many to have only one single most embarrassing moment. I’ve accidentally dropped my skirt in public, thrown up on the pavement, dropped a pound of food in my lap, and walked around without realizing I had a giant rip down the back of my pants.

What is your favorite smell?

The smell of rain. It just fills me with a cool, cleansing feeling.

What does “New Adult” mean to you?

New Adult encompasses that time in your life when you’re trying to find your way in a world where you’re no longer a child but you’re not quite an adult yet either. Discovering how to be completely independent can be daunting—some people fail and others flourish. Either way, it’s bound to be filled with accomplishments and missteps and plenty of quiet adventures.
White or red wine? White. 
Coffe or tea? Fruit juice
Vanilla or chocolate ice-cream? Twist!

Leave us with a teaser/quote from your book?

“Will would show her that he was an addiction worth keeping.”

Thanks Colina. 

 When twenty-one-year-old Leah Carter's latest one night stand burglarizes her apartment, her roommate forces her to attend therapy for sex addicts. Leah insists she isn't a sex addict; she just doesn't do relationships. After all, sooner or later, everyone lets you down.

At first, the group sessions are little more than an education on how to be promiscuous. Until she meets the newest addict—blue eyes, killer body, and a smile that tempts relapse.

Psychology student Will McLean is posing as a fellow addict while researching a case study on unusual addictions. But the more he learns about Leah, the more certain he is that his desire to break through her walls and unearth her secrets has nothing to do with his assignment.

As the uncertainties spike alongside the sexual tension, the only thing Leah knows for sure is that falling in love would be disastrous. Too bad love might be one addiction she can't kick
