REVIEW: Addicted For Now by Krista and Becca Ritchie

If you have NOT read the other two books in this series STOP right now and do NOT read further. 

This series is addictive--as a matter of fact, I'm plotting ways to barricade myself in my room and hide from all responsibilities while I marathon read the other books in this series. (If only, right?!!--stupid real world puts a major halt to all of my fun.) So, what makes this so good? 

Well, Lily and Lo are now coping with his return from rehab and her coping with her addiction. It's painful and engrossing all at the same time. You feel so proud of Lo and how far he's come at the same time you feel anxious for Lily and her struggle to keep moving in a positive direction--it was definitely a read that I felt the ups and downs. The struggle for Lily was so real--so in the moment, and I suppose, if I think about it, this really felt like her book. We witness her successes and fumbles and worries...and her pride in her sisters and Lo. 

In the midst of both Lily and Lo struggling to cope with their new reality, a whole new MAJOR problem crops up and it adds additional strain on everyone and everything. It also sheds some light on secondary characters --some I loved more (Rose, Conner, Daisy, Ryke, Allison) and some I loved to hate (Lily's mom, Sebastion, and others who shall remain unnamed), and I am still struggling with how I feel about Jonathan Hale. <--- am I supposed to? Because I have some serious dislike for him and yet, I appreciate some of the things he major conflicted feelings about him right now.

A few other things--if you're looking for a quick and twisty plot, I'd say this might not be for you--I loved it because it took me through their emotional states and took the time to explore how and what Lily and Lo felt and while it definitely does have plot twists, the novel feels more focused on the emotional impact of the post-rehab/ post-CF stuff that involves Lily and Lo.

I am eager to tackle the next books in this series and hope to do this soon. In the meantime...

Happy reading, y'all. 

ETA: This is another old review that was left in our drafts folder. We hope you enjoy!



He's addicted to booze. She's addicted to sex...staying sober is only half the battle.

No. More. Sex.

Those are the three words Lily Calloway fears the most. But Loren Hale is determined to be with Lily without enabling her dangerous compulsions. With their new living situation--sleeping in the same bed, for real, together--Lily has new battles. Like not jumping Lo's bones every night. Not being consumed by sex and his body.

Loren plans to stay sober, to right all of his wrongs. So when someone threatens to expose Lily's secret to her family and the public, he promises that he'll do anything to protect her. But with old enemies surfacing, Lo has more at stake than his sobriety.

They will torment Lily until Lo breaks.

And his worst fear isn't relapsing. He hears the end. He sees it. The one thing that could change everything. Just three words.

No. More. Us.
