The fast lane is much too slow for Rachel Walsh. And Manhattan is the perfect place for a young Irish female to overdo everything. But Rachel's love of a good time is about to land her in the emergency room. It will also cost her a job and the boyfriend she adores. When her loving family hustles her back home and checks her into Ireland's answer to the Betty Ford Clinic, Rachel is hopeful. Perhaps it will be lovely—spa treatments, celebrities, that kind of thing. Instead, she finds a lot of group therapy, which leads her, against her will, to some important self-knowledge. She will also find something that all women like herself fear: a man who might actually be good for her.

No pensé que iba a ser tan dramático . Hay tanta tensión y autodestrucción en la vida de Rachel que no entiendo como su historia puede ser considerada una mera novela light . A mi me deprimio la madrugada .Recomendada para quienes les gustan las heroinas "defectuosas" y las tramas de romance trágic...
An interesting story about addiction but it was too long, filled with superfluous details which I started skimming. Still I was drawn to continue even though the rehabilitation process overshadowed the romance. Rachel's family checked her into a rehab center because of her drug addiction.
Rachel is living in New York, working a job that really doesn't demand much from her which is good because she's not giving much back, she's addicted to drugs, specifically cocaine and is breaking the hearts of her friends. It's heartwarming and heartbreaking all at the same time and while it makes...
