Review: Addicted for Now by Krista and Becca Ritchie

Check out my review of Addicted to You (Addicted #1) Check out my review of Ricochet (Addicted #1.5) Favorite Quote(s): “‘She doesn’t need another handout.’ He invades Sebastian’s space again. ‘You’re a lazy sanctimonious prick who profits off of apathetic trust fund babies. The students who need those exams are the ones who can’t afford them. You knowingly perpetuate a repugnant cycle.’ He stares at him like he’s shit on the bottom of his shoe. ‘You keep the rich kids stupid and the poor kids poor.’” Favorite Character: Connor…he’s funny! First Line: “Of all of the days in the month, I have to be stuck in traffic on the one that means the most to me.” My Musings: Addicted for Now was another fabulous installment in the Addicted series. I swear that these novels just keep getting better and better! In Addicted for Now, Lily and Lo are finally reunited after three months of separation. But being back together, while amazing, is not very conducive to Lily’s recovery. Having Lo back is the biggest temptation of all. But Dr. Branning, Lily’s therapist, has give Lo a blacklist, hopefully to control the situation before it get out of hand. Things are going alright until Lo and Lily start getting anonymous texts from someone who claims to know her secret. Someone who wants to take revenge on Lo, but they have absolutely no idea who it […]

Review: Ricochet by Krista and Becca Ritchie

Check out my review of Addicted to You (Addicted #1) Favorite Quote(s): “‘You’re a tool,’ Ryke says, blunt but not in a Connor Cobalt endearing way. He;s just kind of mean. ‘Why are you here again?’ Connor asks. Ryke’s jaw hardens. ‘I’m Lily’s friend.’ ‘Well, I’m Rose’s boyfriend and Lily’s friend,’ Connor says. ‘I don’t know if you’re good at math but…’ He flashes his prep school smile. Oh…Connor…” Favorite Character: Lily. She really grew over this novel. First Line: “I fucked up.” My Musings: Ricochet is a novel that takes place between books one and two of the Addicted series by Krista and Becca Ritchie. It, in my opinion, was a fantastic bridge between the novel, and kept me wondering what exactly would happen in the next novel. Ricochet focuses mainly on Lily and how she is dealing with her addiction. It’s rather hard for her, seeing as Lo is away at rehab and asked Lily to wait for him–meaning that she has to endure 90 days on no sex. “So I have to try. Even if something in my brain says go. I keep reminding myself of what waits for me if I don’t wait for him. Emptiness. Loneliness. I will lose my best friend.” In this novel, we definitely see more of Lily’s thoughts and her struggles with her addiction. This book gives the reader a sense of how […]

Review: Addicted to You by Krista and Becca Ritchie

Favorite Quote(s): “‘You two are so weird,’ Connor says, very casually. Being called weird by Connor is like a unicorn calling a horse magical. It makes no damn sense, which is why Lo and I break into smiles, even if Lo’s mood has somewhat shifted since the phone call.” Favorite Character: Lo… First Line: “I wake up.” My Musings: My goodness gracious that book was intense. Now, I’ve read a book about someone addicted to sex before. But this one just blew the other right out of the park! Addicted to You followed Lily Calloway and her best friend, and fake boyfriend, Loren Hale. See, the two of them have been hiding some things from their families–they’re not dating, for one, and they suffer from addictions. That’s right. Loren is an in-the-closet alcoholic and Lily is a sex addict. But they’re been hiding it for three years now, what could possibly go wrong? When real feelings start coming to the surface, things just get a thousand times more complicated. “I inhale strongly, trying to let his comment brush off my shoulders. Trying to ignore his sudden moodiness. Some days, he can be sexy. Others, he can crush you with a glare.” I really enjoyed the characters in this novel. They were dysfunctional. And I’ve seemingly been on a contemporary binge, but these characters managed to hold their own. They were definitely real. […]
