As a sex addict, Lily Calloway must do the impossible. Stay celibate for 90 days.
Cravings and fantasies become her new routine, but while Loren Hale recovers from his alcohol addiction, Lily wonders if he’ll realize what a monster she really is. After all, her sexual compulsions begin to rule her life the longer she stays faithful to him.
Progress. That’s what Lily’s striving for. But by trying to become closer to her family—people who aren’t aware of her addiction—she creates larger obstacles. When she spends time with her youngest sister, she learns more about her than she ever imagined and senses an unsettling connection between Daisy and Ryke Meadows.
With Lily and Lo’s dysfunctional relationship teetering and unbalanced, they will need to find a way to reconnect from miles apart. But the inability to “touch” proves to be one of the hardest tests on their road to recovery. Some love brushes the surface. Some love is deeper than skin.
Lily and Lo have three months to discover just how deep their love really goes.
Includes the first chapter to the sequel Addicted for Now.
A full-length New Adult Romance that continues where Addicted to You left off. As a companion novel, it bridges the gap between the first and second book. It is highly recommended to be read before Addicted for Now.
It’s been a while since I finished reading this book so this will probably be another mini review. If you’ve been following me for a while you know I didn’t particularly care for the first book in this series Addicted to You until the last 8 chapters. Those last 8 chapters in the first book made me want to read the next book immediately which I did.
I buddy read this book with Payton @ Payton’s Book Thoughts and we both agreed that book 1.5 was so much better than the first book.
I don’t really know what to say about this book. I am looking at the notes I have on it about some things I wish were different but I can’t really talk about them because of spoilers.
In book one I really loved Ryke but to me he was really inappropriate in this book which made me not like him all that much. Someone who did grow on me though was Lo. I loved Lo so much in this book I just wish he was in the story more than he was.
Ricochet had some chapters about the past and I honestly could have done without those completely.
I know this review really isn’t all that great but I waited for forever before writing up my review so I am having trouble remembering everything. I do know that I will be continuing with this series.
