Addicted to Ansley
By: Linda Kage
Through all the years that passed, the memory of their love never faded.
Motivational speaker and drug rehab counselor Ward Gemmell can hold an audience in the palm of his hand-because he knows what it's like to have everything he loved slip through his fingers. When a particularly heartfelt speech reunites him with the daughter he never knew he had, suddenly the love of his life is back within his grasp. What could a guy like him do to earn a second chance?
Good girl Ansley Marlow was heartbroken the day Ward revealed his hidden life-the kind of secret that would tear anyone apart. But so many years have passed and so much has changed that it isn't as hard now for her to believe in fate and redemption, even when those around her are unforgiving. All she needs is the strength to reach out and reclaim the beautiful life she should have had so long ago.
Linda grew up on a dairy farm in the Midwest as the youngest of eight children. Now she lives in Kansas with her husband, toddler daughter, and their nine cuckoo clocks. She works a day job in the acquisitions department of a university library and feels her life has been blessed with lots of people to learn from and love. Writing's always been a major part her world, and she's thrilled to finally share some of her stories with other romance lovers.

I signed up for this review blog tour having absolutely no expectations of this book but thought the synopsis looked promising so I thought what the hell and gave it a go. I was so pleasantly surprised with this gem of a book.
The premise of the story was good, the characters were good and you felt the connection between Ward, Ansley and Brooklyn.
At times the story went a little fast in places but all in all I did love the story. It had angst and it had love in all forms especially where it was least expected. It is a myth that family should only be of blood. Where in reality Family is where the heart is and if that is with a core group of friends who love you for who you are and vice versa than that can be a better family for most instead of reality. Both Ansley and Ward didn't have great families but between each other and their friends they made the best family possible.
I absolutely loved the ending of this book it made my heart swell with joy and love. This story is like a diamond in the rough. It was an unexpected but a great surprise.
