Book Review: Addicted for Now

Title Addicted for Now

Series Addicted, book 2

Author Krista & Becca Ritchie

Release Date November 30, 2013

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.

Review

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!
