Product Description

I thought he was my antidote, but it turns out that he’s just my new drug of choice.
Before him, it was heroin.
And then they put me here against my will.
At the time it seemed like my only viable choice.
I preferred stumbling through life numb to it all. But now I’m here, and every sound and every emotion is heightened to a level I never knew existed.
Then somehow, in a moment of weakness it became all about him.
My counselor.
He makes me feel things I never thought possible. But I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to recover...

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Reprive is the story of Tegan a young college dropout who gets dragged to a rehab facility by her family. She is, at times kicking and screaming about it, but deep down she knows that its probably her last roll of the dice. If she doesn't get clean soon, she probably won't survive much longer living the life she has been.

Told entirely from Tegan's POV, the novel proceeds through her 90 day stint in rehab, but interspersed with episodes from her progress in her fight against her heroin addiction are a series of flashbacks, starting with the intervention that brought her to the opening scene, and progressing consecutively backwards in time, each one shedding more and more light on the path that led her to the point where she needs to be saved from her own self destruction.

In the course of her treatment she's taught about replacing unhealthy addictions with more wholesome ones. Her counselor, Asher, mentions that in his own case, he replaced his cocaine addiction with becoming a bit of a gym junkie. Unfortunately, the obsession Tegan finds to replace her heroin habit is Asher himself.

There are reasons why these kinds of relationships are forbidden. The power imbalance creates a situation that's overly ripe with the potential for all sorts of problems, and it isn't long before both are struggling to save their emerging relationship from becoming toxic.

I really enjoyed Reprive. I particularly enjoyed the self discovery and healing aspect of Tegan's story, which is not to suggest that there isn't a hauntingly thoughtful love story woven through it.

It made me laugh, it made me cry. It made me angry, sad and happy and ultimately, it left me smiling. Great story.
