Overview

Addicted for Now (Addicted Series #2) by Krista Ritchie, Becca Ritchie

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.

* Book #2 in the Addicted Series *

I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!! This is my favorite book so far! Which is funny because i said that every time i finish one lol I just love Lily and Lo. So much went on in this book. SO much development. I loved every second of it. And the book was long which i loved. Every chapter, every sentence was necessary in this book. This book feels so realistic. All of there struggles and drama is so real and their reactions are real. I loved the part when they all go to Cancun. It was wonderful. I loved that we got to know Lily's sisters more. Now i can't wait to read their books. Basically, I love everything about this series. I can't wait to start the next one! A must read :) [ Also, I loved who the "villain" blackmailing Lily turned out to be! For some reason i just didn't see it coming. When i found out i was like OF COURSE! it makes perfect sense! lol good twist

I'm not one to write reviews very often but this is one series that I really enjoyed reading! I got the first book in the series for free & have purchased all the others in the series, as well as the spin-off series, & am eagerly awaiting the next two books that I see are scheduled to come out this year! The books are very well written & I especially like the way the books flip back & forth between the two main characters, depending on which book you're reading in the "Addicted" series or the Calloway Sisters" spin-off series, the viewpoint is sometimes from the main guy & other times from the main girl - it really gives the stories more depth.

My Thoughts: I really love Krista, Becca, and the Addicted series. There. I said it. And I'll stand by it. Why? Because this series has it all--romance and love, mystery and intrigue, and don't forget the seriousness of addictions and how they can affect our lives if we can't find a way to keep them under control. Lily and Loren are back together again after being apart to learn how to fight their personal addictions. It isn't easy, not by a long shot. It certainly doesn't help that somebody is out to get Lily, and nobody knows who it could be. Throughout the story, you're pulling for Lo and Lily, hoping they can overcome all these obstacles, even though you know how insanely hard it is. Not only are you pulling for them as a couple, but also for them individually with their struggles, personally and with friends and family. Addicted for Now definitely upped the stakes for Loren and Lily, and Krista and Becca Ritchie delivered. Lo and Lily grow closer through the battles. Even when they discover who it is that wants to destroy Lily's life, they stand strong. Sometimes after a good book you don't know if anything can top it, but I think this dynamic duo might be the exception. My Rating: Exceptional

Soooo let me start off by saying that the Ritchie sisters should really consider starting an online support group for those of us that are extremely addicted to this series. I mean really. The entire I was engrossed with Lo and Lil I DID NOT WANT to do anything else. I lost sleep. I had to force myself out of my bed to eat. It was getting pretty bad. So Lo and Lil are being taunted with derogatory texts from some unknown individual and everyone is a suspect in my mind. I can't not begin how many times I changed my target. When it was finally revealed the true person behind the harassment I gassssppp. It's like "how could you!" There are so many things about Addicted For Now that has my mind going a thousand miles a minute. So I'm going to attempt to collect my thoughts for a few minutes and give some of my highlights in no particular order Lo and Lil ~ I fall deeper in love with these two. Now that they're both attempting to get help for their addictions they are more aware of each others needs. Its amazing.  Lilly's mother ~ agghh I dislike this lady so much. Both of her parents for that matter. It like why put so much energy in every kid you have expect one. I think its very well documented that when you ignore a kid they act out in order to get attention even if its the the wrong kind of attention. And which one of them chose that male therapist! He not only needed his license taken away, but needs to beaten to a pulp and thrown into jail. Grrrrrr. Ryke and Daisy - I adore the relationship they have. Despite the age difference that they're currently faced with the chemistry they have is intense. They balance each other very well.  Rose and Conner ~ To only have the ability to use my words the way these two do. Although the relationship they have sometimes seems distant, I still love them. I cannot express how much I lovvvve this series. I love the characters. I love the angst, the drama, the when allowed. sex. I can't get enough of these dysfunction rich kids.

With each book that I read in this series, I just fall more and more in love with the story, the characters, and with Krista and Becca Ritchie's writing styles. :D Addicted for Now is the second book in the Addicted series, and I thought it was an amazing followup to Addicted to You! :D I loved that we got to know both Lo and Lily more, and that we also got to know all of their friends better, too, including Lily's sisters! I just love how the books have evolved from being totally Lo and Lily-centric to including a bigger group of friends, and I love that the evolution is pretty much the perfect way to show how Lily and Lo have changed from the beginning of the first book. Lily and Lo have both grown so much, and in Addicted for Now we really got to see how much they've changed, and how much effort they both were putting in to change! The dual point of view worked really well to show how they both were changing and how both of them were affected by their own addiction and by each other's addiction. In Addicted to You, the first book, I really did love seeing Lily and Lo's relationship change, but I loved seeing them grow stronger in Addicted for Now! It was fantastic to see them work to overcome their addictions, and to see both of them mature as well. Along with the awesome characters, one of the elements that I love about this series is how well the series as a whole is established. Each book soundly represents its own story, and they feel complete in themselves, but at the same time, there is just enough of an open-ended feeling to allow for sequels, and to allow for spinoffs...the spinoffs are another part I love. In the spinoffs, Becca and Krista Ritchie are also writing books about Lily's sisters, Rose and Daisy! The first one, Kiss the Sky, about Rose and Connor Cobolt has already been released. I've also read it and loved it! My review for that one is coming soon! The next book, Hothouse Flower, is Daisy's story...and it'll be releasing sometime in March, and I absolutely CANNOT wait!!! :D Overall, I thought that Addicted for Now was fantastic! It was sexy, funny, and completely compelling. I was in a bit of a slump at the beginning of the year, and this one really helped snap me out of it because I didn't want to put it down! I find Lo and Lily really easy to relate to because they both tend to fangirl/fanboy and get obsessive about their fandoms. haha I also loved the banter, the story, and as I've mentioned already in this review, the characters! :D I'd recommend Addicted for Now and the Addicted series to contemporary romance fans who aren't afraid of stories that get steamy and are very intense! * I purchased a copy of Addicted for Now for personal reading. All opinions are my own. * This review also appears on my blog and on other social media sites.

If in doubt, just read this series. As always, Krista and Becca Ritchie continue to blow my mind with Lo and Lily's story. This is so honest, raw, passionate, steamy, angsty (is that a word) ... it delivers all the emotional notes you want from a great story while keeping me always rooting for the hero/heroine to be happy. Lo and Lily have so much to overcome from their childhoods and many of these issues remain today as they struggle with parents that just don't get it. It is beautiful to follow their journey of figuring out that they can be the support each other needs, it won't always be easy but watching them both grow as they work through their addictions and all the trauma in their lives is fabulous. Love this series. They do have a great supporting cast of sisters/brothers/friends that seem to give them the right balance when needed.

Lily and Lo are reunited after Lo has come home from rehab, and both are tentatively ready to make serious changes in their relationship to keep from enabling one another. They need each other too much to move forward without one another. With the support of Lily's therapist, they work on opening up communication and living together, not sneaking off alone to indulge in their respective addictions.  Addicted for Now alternates POV between Lo and Lily, so for the first time ever, we get to hear Lo's voice. Lo hasn't been home for even a week when an anonymous person begins texting him, threatening to spill Lily's sex addiction to the tabloids. Lily and Lo go through Lo's enemies, trying to figure out who it is, but there are too many. I felt so much emotion for them - they're going through so much already, and now someone is threatening them on top of everything. Lily's past is coming back to haunt her in a big way, and the same can be said for Lo.  I remember the huge moment in Addicted to You, at the end of the book, when the carefully built lies crumble all around Lily and Lo in front of Rose, Ryke, and Connor. That was such an emotional part of the book, and a huge turning point for these characters. Addicted for Now has huge emotional moments like that, and I really felt the impact of Lily and Lo fighting off their respective cravings. I've seen inside their relationship, and while they used to enable each other, now they are fighting together to become healthy and happy. I'm all for them staying together.   There was so much tension throughout the book in trying to figure out who was the anonymous texter. So many emotions came from me while I was reading that at times, it was almost too intense for me. If you want to know the intimate details of a struggling sex addict and a recovering alcoholic, then this is it. I can't imagine a more personal account than Lily and Lo telling their story. They have this incredible love for one another but also have incredible insecurities from the voices that try to get them to give in to their addictions. Lily said it best when she said she didn't feel safe anywhere. That's how I imagine it would be like.  I can't recommend this series enough! You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll hurt for Lily and Lo. You'll see what has led up to the actions they took to mask their pain. If you've read Addicted to You but haven't read Ricochet, you really need to read Ricochet before tackling this one. It will enhance your experience of Lily and Lo's point-of-views. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Check out the review for book 1 and book 1.5 on my blog. The second book (or really third) in the series is rather different than the first two. The first two books are told solely from the perspective of Lily. However, this book is told from the perspectives of Lily *and* Loren. I had become used to seeing things through Lily’s eyes, so I was somewhat skeptical that I would enjoy the dual perspectives. However, it was such a treat. I loved getting inside Lo’s head. Since he’s such a huge part of the story, both on his own and in Lily’s life, it was great to have this alternative view of things. Another thing that I loved about this book was the other characters. While they were certainly present in the other books, they are a bigger presence in this one for sure. Ryke, Connor, Rose, and Daisy are all wonderful. I love that they have bonded together with Lily and Lo to create this group of friends that’s become vital to the story. I have genuinely enjoyed the interactions within the group. Overall, this is a solid book. The writing is great. The story is interesting and has kept my focus completely (no boring spots or lulls). Not only am I excited for the story of Lily and Lo to continue, but I’m also excited to read the spinoffs (Rose & Connor in Kiss the Sky and Daisy & Ryke in Hothouse Flower). Unfortunately, I’m completely caught up with the books that are currently released and I have to wait around for the next book along with everyone else. Such sadness!

Addicted for Now was an intense read about addiction, relationships and revenge. It dealt with alcoholism and sex addiction in a very real, brutally honest way. It's not easy to read, but it's worth it. It's beautifully written with damaged characters that you can't help but cheer on. "I'm scared," I start again, "that there's going to be a point where you become angry and bitter and resentful every time I tell you to stop, that you realize someone else can give you what you want." "No one else could ever give me what I want," she breathes. "I only want you." This book picks up immediately after Loren returns from rehab, where he was trying to kick his addiction to alcohol. While he was trying to get clean, his girl friend Lily was battling her sex addiction. Now they're back together and, in addition to fighting their addictions, they are battling outside forces as well. Namely the person who is threatening to expose Lily's addiction. There's family drama and friend drama and just a lot of very tough situations. Both Lo and Lily's addictions are described in such detail that it was uncomfortable to read about at times, but that's part of what makes this book stand out so much in my mind. I certainly won't forget it anytime soon. Though it was nearly 500 pages long, I devoured this book in less than a day. I can't say I fell in love with Lo and Lily, but I felt sympathy for them. I wanted them to each be able to beat their addictions, prevail over the outside forces and be able to live a normal life… together. Their love is strong and very real, their chemistry powerful. Surely they can overcome anything together, right? There's something incredibly special about this series. I think it's the combination of flawed characters who are desperately trying to overcome their addictions, a storyline that is unique and the brutally-honest depiction of the struggles of addiction. The dual POV really allows the reader to get inside the characters' heads and understand more fully where each of them are coming from and the battle they fight constantly. The other thing I love about this series is the secondary characters. Each of them have depth and really contribute a ton to the story. Lily's sisters Rose and Daisy are both wonderful, but in completely different ways. Serious, virginal Rose isn't someone I would normally connect with, but she is such a driving force in Lily's life that I can't help but love her. Her younger sister Daisy provides entertainment and forehead-slapping moments of exasperation. Conner and Ryke are amazing. I'm thrilled to learn that these characters will be getting books of their own in the near future. (Not the near enough future, for my liking, but you know…) I had a great deal of respect for Krista and Becca Ritchie after reading Addicted to You. They took the story one step further in Addicted for Now. Along the way, they've landed on my auto buy author list, too. These sisters write books that push me out of my comfort zone and really make me think, while keeping me completely engrossed in the journey their characters are taking.
