Addicted to You (Addicted #1)
Release Date: 07/01/13
Summary from Goodreads:
No one would suspect shy Lily Calloway’s biggest secret. While everyone is dancing at college bars, Lily stays in the bathroom. To get laid. Her compulsion leads her to one-night stands, steamy hookups and events she shamefully regrets. The only person who knows her secret happens to have one of his own.
Loren Hale’s best friend is his bottle of bourbon. Lily comes at a close second. For three years, they’ve pretended to be in a real relationship, hiding their addictions from their families. They’ve mastered the art of concealing flasks and random guys that filter in and out of their apartment.
But when they go on a family boat trip, surrounded by open seas and limited male bodies in sight, Lily’s confronted with a big fear. Only one guy onboard can fill her addiction, and she’s sworn off going there with Loren Hale ever again.
Now the only person who can truly help her can barely help himself.
**This is a New Adult book recommended for readers 18 and up**
Addicted To You is intense, gritty, dark, emotional, and totally riveting! I immediately had to find out if there would be another book because I would have been haunted by Lily and Lo forever if their story had ended where this book ends. Trust me when I tell you that I was holding my breath looking for a sequel and I am thrilled and relieved to announce that yes there will be more to this story.
I can't remember another book that had me simultaneously hating and loving the main characters. One minute I'm crying right along with Lily and then I'm raging at her for being so weak. Then I'm so mad at Lo for being such a jerk, then the very next minute he is tender and loving. I guess this is the way of addicts and Krista and Becca Ritchie have nailed these characters so perfectly.
Now I can't tell you if there were any grammar mistakes or even if the writing was spot on because I was so caught up in the story that I don't think I would have noticed any of these anyway. I can't remember the last book that had me this captivated. I will be anxiously awaiting Ricochet (book 1.5) and Addicted For Now (Book 2).
