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.

We are blown away by how great this series is! Book two in the Addicted series is written in dual POV following Lo & Lilly. Krista & Becca Ritchie gives us a whole new twist on romance reads. The story-line is very different, unlike anything we have ever read, it is very deep and touches on some very serious topics. This story between two very broken souls Loren (Lo) Hale & Lily Calloway who are both struggling with their addictions. Lo a recovering alcoholic and Lily a struggling sex addict.
Addicted to You starts with Lily seeking help through her sister Rose, her friends, Conner & Ryke, and her sex therapist. Lo finishes his time in rehab and returns home, he moves in with Lily and her sister in their new place.
Lily & Lo are dealing with things like lust, love, self-respect, self-love, addictions & blackmail. The struggle to overcome ones demons all while trying to seek a path to redemption and a healthy relationship.
This book was simply amazing! Krista and Becca did an outstanding job writing a book with such unique characters & story-line. The authors are extremely versatile and dimensional with their writing & each book is a separate masterpiece as they continue to raise the bar with each new release. We are looking forward to Connor & Rose's story and more so with Ryke & Daisy. We can't wait to see what the authors have in store for us, the anticipation!!!
