This is not a your run of the mill novel. It's an important story to educate, advocate, and comfort not only those who are affected by pornography addiction, but everyone. I didn't love the narrators.
Porno addiction is a tough subject to tackle, and Stacy Lynn Carroll does it here with sensitivity and tact while remaining honest. The book traces the problems it's caused in one marriage as they struggle to overcome it and keep their family together. I can't say much without giving the story away other than to say anyone who's ever been in a relationship where any kind of addiction has come in to play will understand this deeply, and anyone who hasn't struggled with, or loves someone who's struggled with, addiction will have a new love and understanding for the former.
The low stars on the performance are because the main narrator sometimes sounds too chipper or happy for such a heavy subject, and her voices for the children grate on the nerves and make what would read as charming characters annoying. A man reads the male parts, which would be refreshing if he didn't sound robotic and very clearly reading from a script. His voice had no personality at all which made it a little harder to get on board with the husband.
Other than my nitpicks over the voices, I highly recommend this book.
