What happens when love can't happen?
Faithfully Addicted is the story of Harkin, a man who doesn’t believe in love, and a barista that wants to prove him that love exists... but she's not ready for a relationship. Harkin believed that the desire and nature of love have been burned away by convenience, like dating apps... Working on match-making algorithms for all the top internet compatibility apps, Harkin spent most of his time in a coffee house staring at his laptop, but only until a barista offered him more than just a warm cup of coffee.
She wasn’t ready for a relationship, and he never intended to fall in love... When this beautiful woman teased Harkin Lindsey about finding the love of his life, he never realized she could be "the one."
Holding her in his arms, Harkin would not have believed that a relationship he didn’t know he wanted would prove dangerous to them both.
Emily, a barista, believes in love. She’s been watching Harkin working on his laptop since day one… but she’s not ready for a relationship. Harkin doesn’t believe in love, and he never meant to fall in love with her. What happens when love can’t happen?
"I had no clue what to expect when I started reading this. I liked the backstories of the characters as much as their interactions. It was a great read." — Starred Review 5/5
"A man with some bitterness in his past meets a woman with some hope and sadness in her heart. Do they have a chance at finding enough healing for their individual selves that they might have a hope for a connection for them together? Through works, with faith and grace, and the gift of the greatest Love. A touching testimonial about a number of folks with a lot of reasons for grief and anger who work imperfectly to move beyond it." — Starred Review 5/5
