This girl, Keaton, is really messed up and stupid (if you ask me). She has some issues and she's making all the wrong decisions...
The story has some loopholes and I didn´t expect much from it but then it turned out to be a major mind-fuck!
I recommend it to my friends with slightly different taste for mind-fuck books. It reminded me a bit on Dark Duet series.

Oh God... I´ll give this fabulous book 5 shining stars! I would give a thousand splendid Suns for this book if I only could! And I´m not talking about the book with the same name. I would give golden medal, platinum record, everything! I'll Give You The Sun is phenomenal. Absolutely breathtaking!
It's been a long time since a novel has made me feel so much, so many, emotions. And I´m just overwhelmed. This is a luminous book. Reading this is like the sunlight is being poured over your head.
What we have here? Let´s see... We have twins (Noah and Jude), two hearts who share the same artistic soul, and this soul becomes shattered into pieces after one awful tragedy. We have soul mates that will make your heart tremble. And than we have one perfect gay couple and so so many secrets. We have artistic types with broken hearts, extreme superstition that borders psychosis or OCD and we have taboo themes. Nothing is how it seems to be. This story is going to break your heart and make you smile and cry. And you´re gonna like it.
Thank you, Jandy, for creating this wonderful gift for us.
Have you read I'll Give You the Sun yet? If you haven't, then there is no other way out. You have to read this. Do yourself a favor and read this book NOW. I can guarantee you won't regret it. ...more

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.

Unexpected things are those that change our lifes, and if I had to choose one word to describe this book it would be UNEXPECTED.
Books that are out of the ordinary have their own special appeal and this book I consider the unusual, the bizarre, and the new.
Firstly I hated the main female character , pretentious Layana. She was so much like Olivia from The Opportunistor Amy in second part of book Gone Girl. She is rich and spoiled, rotten cheater and you tell me, what a female character is allowed to get away with behaviour that? Well, this girl can get away with this! Why? I don´t want to tell you because i want that you all read this book.She is a main female characters who exhibits great resilience and courage. And I loved it!
Brant? Brant Sharp is a self-made billionaire, a true genius, and major philanthropist that just also happens to be gorgeous. A classical too good to be true male character. And...he has a big dark secret. And there comes Lee, our tortured hero. And then we have one wicked aunt/bitch Jilian.
Secrets, cheating and love triangle. You think you heard it all. Boy you are so wrong!
Alexandra Torre is obviously an evil genius when it comes to dropping small hints that aren’t really hints and making you HOPE for things you shouldn’t hope for. She is an excellent author. My point is that Black Lies is a total masterpiece. You think you know, but you have no idea until you read it.

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
