Ten Mile Bottom

by

Teodora Kostova

Hitting rock bottom is just the beginning…

I’m a son, a brother, a friend.
A writer.
An addict.
Dead.
Cardiac arrest isn’t enough to keep me dead, though. The doctors brought me back, but for what?

At twenty four I’ve already achieved what most people do in a life time. I’m a successful author, own a flat in the heart of London and drive my dream sports car.

Or at least that’s what people see.

Once the spotlight fades, I’m left alone with my overactive mind, alcohol and drugs the only way to quiet down the noise.

Until an overdose nearly kills me and drags everyone I love down with me.

With the help of my best friend, I leave London and its toxic influence behind, moving to a small town in the outskirts of Cambridge to try and put my life back together again.

If only it were that easy.

About Teodora!

Hi, my name is Teodora and I live in London with my husband and my son. I’ve been writing ever since I can remember, but it became my full time job in 2010 when I decided that everything else I’ve tried bores me to death and I have to do what I’ve always wanted to do, but never had to guts to fully embrace. I’ve been a journalist, an editor, a personal assistant and an interior designer among other things, but as soon as the novelty of the new, exciting job wears off, I always go back to writing. Being twitchy, impatient, loud and hasty are not qualities that help a writer, because I have to sit alone, preferably still, and write for most of the day, but I absolutely love it. It’s the only time that I’m truly at peace and the only thing I can do for more than ten minutes at a time – my son has a bigger attention span than me.

When I’m procrastinating, I like to go to the gym, cook Italian meals (and eat them), read, listen to rock music, watch indie movies and True Blood re-runs. Or, in the worst case scenario, get beaten at every Nintendo Wii game by a very inventive kid

Review: Finn hits rock bottom the night of his father’s funeral, a night of partying leaves him in the hospital and heading for rehab with a warning ringing in his head… get clean or next time you might die for good. Getting away from London is his only option and quiet Ten Mile Bottom is just what he needs, and meeting the sexy mechanic Ben is a perk.

Ten Mile Bottom is a story that shows a man who has his demons to fight and lay to rest, who discovers love in unexpected places, and who begins to make peace with his past.

This story is beautifully written, it doesn’t pull any punches about addiction or the recovery from addiction, or from showing the emotional trauma of a toxic, dysfunctional family. It shows that even after hitting rock bottom there can still be a glimmer of light to look to.

Finn’s relationship with his mother is extremely toxic, it eats away at Finn even during his recovery but it also eats at his mother. There’s no bad guy in this story just a very complex family dynamic.

Finn’s relationship with Ben starts slowly; building up until it develops into something special. They have some emotional times as they both bare their souls to each other; they connect on a level far deeper than any sexual longing.

This story also doesn’t have a miraculous recovery from addiction, it a long process that Finn works hard to achieve. Ben is a wonderful character who is supportive and sweet, he has a wonderful supportive family who embrace him completely.

Ten Mile Bottom has some fantastic supporting characters from Aiden, Finn’s best friend, Rose, Finn’s young neighbour, and Ben’s family. These characters help build a superb story that is a joy to read, and I can’t wait for Aiden’s story.

I recommend this to those who adore characters who fight their way back from rock bottom, who love an angsty interesting storyline, who love a slow love story and who adore fantastic endings.

    I love your books! ‘Snowed In, A Sip of Rio, Kiss and Ride, and the entire West End series.’ You always write characters who feel things passionately and the plots draw me into their lives…as though they were men I would be able to meet someday.

    Your new book, ‘Ten Mile Bottom’, appears to continue the trend. Good luck with the release!
