This will be the final book with the Addicted gang... unless I fall on my head and forget everything that we've ever planned ;) Release Date: November 20th, 2015

Look out for more Raisy!

UPDATE: ... we must've fallen on our heads because we added a full-length epilogue book called Some Kind of Perfect :) It'll release after Long Way Down and add lots of closure to the whole series.

UPDATE 2: the blurb / back cover summary has been added! xoxo

UPDATE 3: It's LIVE on Amazon!!! Happy reading

Two people who weren’t allowed to love each other. Two people who now unapologetically do.

The Addicted series is by far the most memorable and my most favorite series ever. Each book has something special about it. Each character and couple I love completely in their own way. Those of you who have read the series know exactly what I’m talking about. If you haven’t, I can’t even… you are missing out on so much greatness!

You've been warned. This is not going to be a book review. 

 Addicted Series altered a huge part of my life, and reading Long Way Down left a significant impact on me. It’s possible, I will never be the same.

I realized, after reviewing all of the books in Addicted series, I have finally exhausted the points I’ve been doing for the past eight books. I would sound like an annoying broken record if I continue to sing the same old tune. So maybe,/>Addicted/>You've

I am totally going to lazy out on this review. The way I see it, if you're a fan of the series, you know Raisy, and you're a fan, so read the damn book. You 'shouldn't' regret it, and if you do, I'm not sure if we can be friends. If you haven't read the series, you are missing out, if you like well written love stories that are unique and beautifully portrayed, why haven't you given this series a chance? Yes, these books are lengthy, but the love captured between the pages is, simply beautiful.

The most perfect ending to the most perfect series there ever was.


As Daisy would say, on a scale of one to chocolate, this was like chocolate cake, smothered in icing, and covered with sprinkles in the shape of unicorns.

I could not have asked for a better conclusion for these amazing characters. Krista & Becca created an incredibly thought out, emotional, captivating world with the most charismatic, complex, unique characters. And to see it all come to an end – this is what parents must feel like when they look at their children and realize they’re all grown up. How bittersweet this all is!

The growth and love and maturity all these characters have attained have been so amazing to read. I can’t even count the number of times I have cried from this series, and from this book alone!

I could read about Lo & Lily, Ryke & Daisy, and Connor & Rose forever and I would never tire of them. I love them that much. The love they all have for each other, the love they have for their siblings, the love they have for their significant others….Is. Out. Of. This. World. Amazing.


Even though this is technically the last book of the series, I think the only thing holding me back from more tears is knowing we get an epilogue book Some Kind of Perfect, and then the spin off series Damaged Like Us. I am counting down the days until we get more information and release days on those.

And I leave with this…if you haven’t read this series yet, give it a chance. I know it’s long. I know there are a lot of books. But you will NOT regret one minute of it. I found myself completely immersed in the world they've built and wishing that I could spend an eternity with these characters. Just absolute perfection & I simply cannot recommend this series enough!

Well, the series is over. And what better way to end it than with my favorite couple! Raisy. So basically I was super emotional while reading this book, not only for the content but what it represented to those of us in the Fizzle Force.

Warning! This will be less like a review and more like a fangirl gush about an entire series.

Long Way Down is the story of Ryke and Daisy, who have been officially datingseries.

Long Way Down…seems like it was a long time coming but every word of every sentence in every paragraph that made up this book was worth every second of time passed. The Ritchie sisters have created a frenzy with their Addicted Series. To say it is a “good” series is just not enough. It is a journey of 6 people who have loved, laughed, fought, F***’d, and completely lived. There has been NO other book couple that has stayed in my mind and heart as the enigmatic

I'm pretty sure it happened when Daisy dove off that cliff in Mexico and Ryke dove in after her or maybe when she got attacked and left with a scar on her face. Ryke wi

I was super excited to have Raisy's book but then reality hit me. This series is ending and I won't be able to anticipate another book about them. So, I put off reading it. Then we got word that there would be one more FINAL BOOK. YES! Some Kind of Perfect has all 6 characters coming together to give the fans closure to the series. That book was just recently released and fans are loving it.gif:

By far one of the best books I've ever read! I don't even know where to begin with how much I loved this book. How much it made me laugh, and cry, and smile...honestly I could go on about the whirlwind of emotions it brought out of me. Never have I been this in love, this addicted to reading a book as I am whenever I am reading something from Krista and Becca.

You think you know what to expect from this book, but you don't. KB once said that they'd give us the story we didn't even realize we nee
Ryke Teaser

Krista and Becca Ritchie brought this series full circle with Ryke and Daisy's story. And it tied for my favorite in the series, with Kiss The Sky. I have long since proclaimed Connor and Rose my favorite couple in the series and said that Ryke and Daisy were close second. But with this book, Ryke may have just tied with Connor. GASP! I know. I promise I didn't jump ship, I just joined another.

Long Way Down teaser

Daisy's resilience is inspiring and Ryke's fortitude is motivating. They are wild and fierce. They love unconditionally. Each fight through their struggles, each turning to one another and their siblings for support. They prove that no matter what life throws at you, you can overcome.

Daisy Teaser 2

As with every Ritchie book, I highlighted so many passages, my iPad looks like a rainbow. I continue to be impressed and amazed at the talent these women possess.

Ryke and Daisy have an epic love story. Theirs is one built on a solid foundation; mutual respect, friendship, admiration and love. They play hard and love hard. There are consequences that follow both and they lean on one another when faced with the ramifications of their actions.


I can't say enough how much I loved these two, as well as the appearances of Connor and Rose, Lo and Lilly, Garrison and Willow.

Anyone who follows this series already knows Long Way Down is Ryke and Daisy's final story. It is their middle and end, their HEA. It was perfectly and exquisitely crafted. I cried with them, laughed with them and swooned with them. Watching them grow made me "proud". I know that is strange because they are fictional characters, but after 9 books, they feel like friends family.

But Long Way Down also marks the end of this series. I will say that again, there have been 9 books! Nine - about 3 different couples, 3 sisters and their boyfriends-turned husbands. Each book has been unique, focusing on the couple starring in that book, with the other characters having pivotal roles. Each following a specific timeline and in most instances overlapping the previous in some way. Really, what these authors have done is create a mini series. The last book we will get from Krista and Becca about these adult siblings/friends/husbands/wives will be 'Some Kind of Perfect' which will be an Addicted Series full-length epilogue novel. That excites me, because we will get to hear from everyone and learn what they have been doing to make their futures bright!

Bravo Krista and Becca Ritchie, you created an epic series, one of my all-time favorite's and definitely one that I will recommend again, and again.

"The relationships that take the most effort and time become the mightiest in the end."

I have a big and probably unpopular confession to make. (No rotten tomatoes, please!) I never truly liked Raisy and Hothouse Flower is my least favorite book in series (even though it is still better than many other NA novels out there). There were many reasons why Ryke and Daisy never worked for me as a couple before. It was mainly Daisy's recklessness in comparison with Ryke's selflessness. They just weren't a good m

I have seriously struggle so hard with writing this review. First, if you are following the series you know this is the final book in the series and you know it’s Ryke and Daisy’s book. Ryke and Daisy are my absolute favorite couple in the series. Ryke Meadows also happens to be my ultimate book boyfriend.

Two people who weren't even allowed to love each other. Two people who now unapologetically do.

I fell in love with Ryke in the very beginning. His selflessness, protectiveness and overall giveboyfriend.

I'm not sure where my head is at right now, because this was such a bittersweet experience. I have undying love for this book, this series, these six characters, their stories and these authors. It's been such a magical journey and Long Way Down was the perfect conclusion to this rollercoaster of emotions. What a way to end my favorite series!

Yes, yes, yes! The Ritchie sisters have nailed it with this one! There’s nothing I can say about this book that I haven’t said about any of the other books in this series – the story is wonderfully engaging with lots of drama, humour, passionate romance and the most incredible character dynamics of any series I’ve read; and the writing is superb.

Look it's no secret that this book made break out in hives from anticipation. I may or may not have stated that I would hunt down the twins if they fucked with my fav couple. I was kidding (kinda).

I should have had faith in their writing, in their story telling, and in their ability to turn everything around in the darkest moments of a book.

This book was utter perfection. I cried, I laughed, and I fell even more in love with not only this couple but all the others.

"Wherever you go, I'll go. I'll be here no matter what..."
How do I review a book that essentially ends an era? One that touched me to the core? And how do I move on from that book when it left me feeling blessed for the life I live and proud of the person I've become? I just can't without shedding more tears in the process. But I'll do my best to explain why Long Way Down is my new favorite book, and why you should start reading the Addicted series [pronto] if you aren't already. I'm just goingstars!*
It should be noted that I made the mistake of reading this book on the bus this morning. I found myself in the most emotional public crying session since Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince. Around the 67% mark this book just gutted me and I had to put it down to take a deep breath.

So this review is probably really long and maybe has nothing to do with this book, so I feel like if you've somehow stumbled onto this emotional ranty mess, just do yourselves a favour and read these books. Okay do
