Libby Garrett is addicted to Owen Jackson's hot lovin'. But the sexy, popular college basketball player doesn't appreciate all of Libby's awesomeness. He refuses to be exclusive or even admit to people that they're dating. The relationship is ruining Libby and she's the only one who can't see it.

When Libby's behavior spirals completely out of control, her best friend Avery Shaw and the rest of the Science Squad stage an intervention hoping to cure Libby of her harmful Owen addiction. They put her through her very own Twelve Step program—Owen's Anonymous—and recruit the help of a sexy, broody, hard as nails coffee man to be her official sponsor.


Adam Koepp has watched Libby Garrett for years. How could he not notice the sassy girl with the purple skateboard and helmet plastered with cat stickers? But in all the years he's crushed on her, Libby has failed to take notice of him. Why would she when he was just a nobody high school drop out who served her apple cider several times a week? Especially when she was hooking up with a guy like Owen Jackson—a guy with a college scholarship and more abs than Kyle Hamilton.

Adam finally gets the chance to meet Libby when his co-worker Avery Shaw recruits him to take Libby on the journey of a lifetime. With his ability to play Bad Cop and his experience with the Twelve Step program he's the perfect candidate to be Libby's sponsor. But will he be able to keep his personal feelings out of the matter and really help her the way she needs? And will Libby hate him when he forces her to take an honest look at herself?

This follow-up companion novel to The Avery Shaw Experiment can be read as a stand alone. (But where's the fun in that?) ;)

My Opinion

Libby has changed since the Avery Shaw experiment. Gone is the gal with the cat shirts and the can do attitude. Now it is short skirts, that look horrid on her and way too much make-up. She is ditching her friends to hook up with Owen- yepper Grayson’s best friend. Only Owen treats her like well… You have to read the book.

Have you ever been obsessed with a guy or girl? Have you ever stopped talking to your friends, hanging out or doing what it is you normally do? Just so that you are there at their beck and call every time they want to see you? If you haven’t I bet then that you are the friend that gets left in the dust. This book is for all of those friends that get left in the dust and haven’t a clue how to deal. Libby’s friends not only deal, they give her an ultimatum. It is either him or us. Avery, Libby’s bestie, is so serious about this intervention that she even gets a sponsor, a guy named Adam. He is her boss at the coffee shop. What no one really knows (except his sister) Adam has a secret crush on Libby (or at least the old Libby). The new Libby is kinda well, not right.

I use to like Libby, and I know that is what the author wanted me to remember. How I use to like Libby and how Libby is currently hurting herself and her friends. Seriously, I wanted to shake her at least a dozen times in the first five chapters. When did the smart vibrant Libby get abducted and in her place was a hoochie momma. As Adam works the 12 steps with her the old Libby does begin to shine. I just wish she never turned into that girl- the one we all know. In the first part of the book she is selfish, really selfish.

Adam, knows that the 12 step program is just that a program that may or may not work. He has to try though, on the off chance that his crush is still in there. How he can be supportive of Libby during some the program is beyond me. I wish he thought more of himself than he does. He gives up everything for Kate (his sister). Yet instead of letting that build him up he is very judgmental of himself.  The chemistry between Adam and Libby are off the charts hot.  You can feel the feels vibe floating off the book as you read it.  

Overall, The Libby Garrett Intervention is an enjoyable read. There were times I laughed out loud, shook my head or gasped in shock. I wonder if there will be another experiment novel or if this is the last.   If there is you can bet I will be one-clicking it.

My Rating 3 out of 5 stars
