This quote was on my mind the whole time I read this novella so I just had to write it down.
Let´s see. First I just have to say that I didn't have high expectations for this series, and boy was I wrong. My apologies to the authors and all the fans.
This is 1,5 novella in the Addicted series by Krista and Becca Ritchie and it takes place immediately after the end of Addicted to You (Book 1) and ends just prior to the start of Addicted for Now (Book 2). Lily and Lo, our favorite addicts, are being separated for 3 months. While Lo is in rehab, she is trying to cope with her own addiction and is trying to reconnect with her family. It's a difficult read about a sex and an alcohol addiction, but the bond between Lily and Lo is pretty awesome. They both are exhausted and they are feeling lost by their loved one's addiction struggles. This book (novella) provides a rare look into the manic mind of a struggling addict. I could feel their emotions almost to a point where I felt love for the addict. Their struggles and emotions are so gripping. I've never experienced an addiction like in this series. One of the things I like the most about this book though were Lily's flashbacks of her and Lo. You get more insight of their relationship and how it was back then when they were younger and it's just so interesting and sweet. They were in love for so long and they didn´t even know that.
To cut a long story short: -original storyline -great writing style -wonderful set of characters (especially Rose and Connor Cobalt, Ryke & Daisy were a bit annoying to me).
These books are just addicting...just as the title/series says.

I have mixed feelings about the current novella trend in fiction. Shorter works featuring secondary characters from a successful full-length book or covering a discrete span of time before/after the action. Problem is that the novella is a specific prose form that isn't always easy to carry off. Longer than a short story, shorter than a novel,it requires careful plotting to get the pacing right. But you don´t have to worry about that things while reading Colleen´s novellas. They are perfect.
Maybe Not tell us a story about side characters of Maybe Someday, Warren and Bridgette who are everything but not ordinary. They are odd, goofy, silly, evil, mean...The author developed this characters in such a way that you must loved them. Colleen Hoover has such a brilliant writing style and I highly recommend all her books!
Without giving too much away, as I do not appreciate those who give reviews and spoil the storyline, I will say this novella is not just about Warren's story. It´s quite funny and enjoyable read for fans of a well-written story, well-crafted characters who make you warm in your belly and laugh out loud.
This is one that is on the MUST read shelf for anyone who wants to giggle, snort, and grin the silliest of grins for a long time after finishing the book. ...more

Well, well, well...What have I just read? I butterflying love my girl Glass who recommended this book to me and I love Collleen Hoover and I love this book and Ridge and Warren and everything in between...

I generaly don´t like the books about cheating, but this book was something different. This book is beautiful representation of love, devotion and loyalty and all the pitfalls that can happen in your life. Colleen Hoover has such a unique writing style and I absolutely love reading her stories. They include romance and humor and some very quirky characters! The secondary characters were equally as complex and amazing. Each of them brought something special to this book. What makes Maybe Someday especially special and different is the soundtrack that goes along with it. Being able to listen to Griffin Peterson sing the amazing songs that go with the story brought the characters and the story to life.
This book ruined all other books for me. It shattered my heart into pieces and then filled it up so much I felt like it was going to burst. I had such an emotional reaction to this book that I couldn´t start another one until I worked through the emotions this book brought out in me.
This is one that is on the MUST read shelf for anyone who wants to giggle, snort, cry and grin the silliest of grins for a long time after finishing the book.
“There are only twenty-six letters in the English alphabet. You would think there would only be so much you could do with twenty-six letters. You would think there were only so many ways those letters could make you feel when mixed up and shoved together to make words. However, there are infinite ways those twenty-six letters can make a person feel, and this song is living proof. I’ll never understand how a few simple words strung together can change a person, but this song, these words, are completely changing me. I feel like my maybe someday just became my right now.”
Colleen has somehow used these 26 letters to make me live, breathe, and truly feel the emotions in this story and I´m thankful her for that.
