Passion Relapse by Jack Fisher

Two recovering sex addicts. Two broken souls. One shared passion.

Mary Ann Scott was once an aspiring fitness model and all-around party girl. Now, she’s a sex addict whose recovery is making her miserable. Despite spending nearly a year in a treatment program, she struggles to escape the scars left by her addiction. Then, one night, she crosses paths with Peter Robert Rogers, a childhood friend turned handsome firefighter who just happens to be a recovering sex addict as well.

He comes into Mary’s life broken, distraught and vulnerable. Having experienced that feeling, too, she reaches out to him. Together, they try to help each other heal. But in doing so, Mary doesn’t just open old wounds. She evokes a wealth of pent-up desire…a desire that quickly consumes them both.

Now, she and Peter are nearing the brink of relapsing. They’re on the verge of giving in to their addiction. Will it break them once more? Or will it bring them together and finally heal their wounded souls?

Reader Advisory: This book contains discussion and recollections of murder, suicide, infidelity and death. Description of an intense BDSM scene.

This book is about two recovering sex addicts, but it is also about a man and a woman that were friends when they were little and moved apart. I have to say that I really enjoyed reading about how the pair works through their issues and as they share their stories of how they came to be where they were.

I felt so bad for Mary Ann at first because while she was doing everything her recovery program demanded of her, she still didn't feel like she was getting better, at least not deep down, even though she was controlling her addiction. It took someone who knew her before her addiction had taken over her life for her to find herself again.

Peter is much newer at dealing with his addiction, but he immediately grabs onto Mary Ann and all the knowledge that she has gained in her year of recovery.

The two find that the program may help them in one way, but true friendship helps in a completely other way.

I will say that I felt like the revelation that occurs at the end of the book seemed a bit over the top to me, so that is where the loss in ratings came from. I would've liked to see the couple as they came into the revelation together instead of just being told how they handle it.

Jack Fisher was born in Washington DC into a large, loving family that nourishes creativity at every turn. He grew up on a steady diet of comic books, movies, and Saturday morning cartoons. That diet gave him an active imagination, one he channelled into writing. He began writing at age 16 and hasn’t really stopped since. He quickly developed a soft spot for romance, often writing fan fiction of his favourite fictional couples. Eventually, he graduated to writing stories about couples of his own creation, with a heavy focus on heated passion and powerful intimacy. He is currently single and lives just outside of DC. He is still a self-professed comic book lover and all around sci-fi geek while striving to refine his craft in any way he can.
