Summary
She wants only one thing: to be wanted. Ad<U+00df>ele appears to have the perfect life: She is a successful journalist in Paris who lives in a beautiful apartment with her surgeon husband and their young son. But underneath the surface, she is bored--and consumed by an insatiable need for sex. Driven less by pleasure than compulsion, Ad<U+00df>ele organizes her day around her extramarital affairs, arriving late to work and lying to her husband about where she's been, until she becomes ensnared in a trap of her own making. Suspenseful, erotic, and electrically charged, Ad<U+00df>ele is a captivating exploration of addiction, sexuality, and one woman's quest to feel alive
