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. New Adult Romance recommended for readers 18+ for mature content

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.

Becca Ritchie claims she's from Mystic Falls, but really, she lives in Atlanta where humidity is her greatest foe. She loves comic books, blue nail polish and Jonathan Taylor Thomas circa 1995. She frequents Twitter to dish about too many TV shows, and when she's not blogging, she writes novels and has teamed up with her twin sister to collaborate on a New Adult series. Krista Ritchie has a clone...or someone who looks exactly like her. If she's not writing books with her twin sister, she's pouring over entertainment news and ingesting copious amounts of pop culture. She likes tennis, that thing called the TV, and beating Becca (her clone) on Sega Genesis. She created YA Book Exchange to combat her book buying addiction and started Nawanda Files, a YA Book Blog that features books into movies news, to share her love for all things bookish. Oh, and she does something called science. Whatever that is. Krista & Becca Ritchie write New Adult books that make you cringe, gasp, and go ooh-la-la. (If you do that sort of thing.) They are currently working on the spin-offs and final books in the Addicted series. Connect with them 



  1. I've seen so many great reviews for this series. It's not something that I'd normally be drawn to, but all these 4 and 5 stars have me curious. I'm glad you enjoyed this, Jennifer! :)

  2. I'm loving this series! I just read book 1 a couple of weeks ago and I'm reading Ricochet right now, then I'll be reading this one during the holidays. I LOVE Connor and him and Rose are already so funny I heard how hilarious they got in this one. I'm so excited to get to it! EEk!

  3. I am addicted to books and jewelery

  4. I am addicted to books and the smell of brand new books.
