'Love Addict' by Koren Shadmi is about the world of online dating and casual sex. It's a shallow enough topic, but I'd hoped the plot would offer more.
"K" has had a recent breakup and he's on the rebound. He has a friend who recommends a dating app called Lovebug. Soon "K" is dating and sleeping with all kinds of women. It becomes an addiction for him. He can't focus on work. Sometimes he confuses the dates he is with. He can't seem to have an ongoing relationship with one woman.
I'm not sure what the point of this graphic novel was besides drawing naked people. It seems like the author gets close to making a point, then veers away from it. This lifestyle seems to have a negative effect on his friend, but then the story veers off into more casual sex.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Top Shelf Productions, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
