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.

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:

  1. This seems like such a fun series despite the seriousness of the addictions. I can't say it's my genre but it seems interesting. Might give this one a go.

    1. It's very captivating, you're drawn in by the characters. It does go deep, so it may be hard for some people to get into, but it's very good. :)

    1. It is very character driven, which is hard to find sometimes. I never really thought about the cover myself. :P
