Lily and Lo have faced their addictions and now they must learn to live a healthy life with them and not relapse. Their strength is tested because someone knows Lily's secret and wants to reveal it. Lo is doing his best to follow the sex rules Lily's psychiatrist put in place. Lily has to learn how to love herself but without self love. This installment has alternative POVs of both Lily and Lo.
I loved getting Lo's POV this time and seeing how he would do anything for Lily. He blames himself a lot for not pushing her home and helping her addiction sooner. Lily actually has similar feelings about not helping Lo sooner. They both have to let that go and just be there for each other now. And they have to learn to let others be there for them. They are used to shutting themselves off and now they have friends and family that know about their problems and want to help.
Lily has made great progress in therapy and is learning that she tries to fill a hole inside her with sex. She just wants to be able to make love to her boyfriend in the normal way. Why can't she be normal? Why can't she stop having sex like a normal person? Even without these characters same addiction you can really feel for them. Everyone has some problem where they have thought at one time why can't they be normal.
I love following all these characters. Lily's sister Rose really cracks me up and I love her with Connor. I am excited they are getting a spin-off book as well and Ryke and Daisy. Ryke cracks me up with the way he loves to say the F-word. He seems like a jerk sometimes but he loves Lo therefore he loves Lily like a sister as well. I also wasn't able to guess who the person trying to reveal Lily's secret was. That was an interesting twist. I can't wait to see where Lily and Lo go next but wherever it is hopefully they remain sober.
