WOW!!! I have found a new favorite series!!!

I swear it was like this book was written for me. It had all the elements I love in a story -- great writing, deeply flawed but lovable characters and an emotional intensity that kept drawing me further and further in.

I'm totally addicted ;)

The story is about Lily and Lo. They're childhood friends who have grown up together but they each have an addiction -- she's addicted to sex, he's addicted to booze -- and if their very wealthy and controlling

Addicted to You is a story that is just that- addictive. I can’t imagine finishing this book and not needing to dive right into the next. I can’t believe that I’ve waited this long to read this series, but I’m kind of glad I did. I can binge read them all now. :D

Lily and Lo are childhood friends and a couple as far as everyone knows. In reality, they’re both addicts. Lo is an alcoholic and Lily is a sex addict. They both come from rich, affluential families and if their families e

Second Book: Addicted for Now


This novel is very character-driven and deals with the aspects of addiction through sex and alcohol. It will leave you with raw, gut-wrenching, and distasteful feelings. Lilly and Loren aren’t good people and they clearly both need some serious help. The book focuses on their relationship and how they came to use one another to hide their vices. Eventually, we witness them fall in love, but the question is whether or not they can control their ad

I didn't initially review this book but I am currently now on book 3 and I am becoming "addicted" to this series. And damn, if those books don't deserve a review than I don't know what does.

I didn't love this one but I liked it. I was a little sceptical after finishing it but I am so glad I continued with the series because it's just getting better and better. And if you are too on the fence whether to continue, please do, I promise you won't regret.

Since I'm on my phone, I'll just share my thoughts really quick.

There's no doubt I will be reading the next books in the series but I don't know what to expect. It's safe to say I didn't like this book and I wasn't enjoying it until Connor showed up.

I understand what the author was trying to do and I admire how constant and somehow realistic her characters were. Like how Lily's addiction was delivered and her in between thoughts; I could feel her desperation and that was pretty cool

"It's our greatest lie."

Addicted to You is not your typical romance book. It's unexpected and raw and one that I'd never read before. Truthfully, I was immediately pulled in by the blurb and cover- It was different and unique and had me very intrigued. It wasn't about a romance that pulled me in, it was about a real life struggle as the main focus with a side of attraction. I absolutely love reading books where the character

An intense, powerful, emotional, original and captivating read that had me hooked from the first page! I absolutely loved the main characters as well as the supporting cast. Lo and Lily both had their issues, they weren't perfect, but that's what made them all the more appealing and interesting to read about.

Oh my! I can now see why everyone loved this series so much and this is just the first book. It truly is "addicting." One of the positive things about reading this way after everyone else is because all of the books are out now. I can read them back-to-back and get one giant fix.

Here’s the thing about this book: Under normal circumstances I’m not sure if I would have finished it. But then, under normal circumstances I wouldn’t even have picked it up. I read this book because university is swallowing my soul whole and reading has been more of a chore recently. So I needed a book that would just absorb my attention without me having to do much thinking, a book that I wouldn’t want to put down. Addicted to You is that book. It is indeed, addictin

I love when a book surprises me. I love the feeling from not have no expectations at all, not knowing where a book is going to take me. It kind of just sneaks up on me in a good way, and it stays there because of that. This book did this to me. I was not expecting anything. I just seen it on NetGalley and the cover brought me to click on it. Once I read what it was about I was like okay, this sound okay and different, I will give it ago one day. I also not

This is not your traditional "lovey dovey" romance book. This story is about a couple who battle with addiction in their daily lives. It is dark,raw,unsettling,ugly; but most importantly it is honest and very realistic. Addiction is not pretty, nor is it fun. Lily and Loren have grown up together, and from a very young age they have learned to enable one another and share each others secrets. This is their story, and it is unlike anything I have ever read before. I applaud the author for writing

Addiction: Dependence on or commitment to a habit, practice, or habit-forming substance to the extent that its cessation causes trauma.

Lily Calloway is an addict. What nobody knows is that she is addicted to sex. She doesn’t care if she have to do it with some stranger in a smelly bathroom. She just have to do it.
Loren is also an addicted. But in his case is addiction is alcohol. He and Lily are best-friends and to their families they are in a relationship that they invente

Yes, the author did a good job with the writing and the story and the characters. I just didn't like any of it.

I don't believe in "sex addition". I just think that's an excuse for acting like a slut without being judged. That's my opinion. So I really hated Lily. I mean, have some self-respect!
