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 ever

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
Well, this was certainly different! I've had this book sitting on my shelf for a long time. Finally, I got a chance to listen to it. I'm not quite sure what I expected, but this wasn't it. That isn't necessarily bad though. I'm still trying to wrap my head around this story.

First off, let me just say that both of the main characters are completely screwed up! Lily is a sex addict, sleeping her way through her early-twenties like there's no tomorrow. Meanwhile, Loren, aka "Lo", is drinking like a

Finally reading this series...its sister series The Calloway Sisters is one of my ALL time favorite series. Seriously I ADORE it and all the characters hold a special place in my heart.

Crazy that I read this so very out of order.

But what can I say?

Train wreck.


Want to get this one is and re-read the Calloways before I read the final installment...

"He’s my drug that I gladly consume, and I think that’s what he fears most. He enables my addiction. Always has. And the longer we’re together, he always will.”


I LOVED THIS BOOK. I loved the characters, the writing, the storyline, how DIFFERENT it was from any other story I have read. It was emotional, heart breaking but refreshing, sometimes comical, full of drama, and also intense.

My God, I’m addicted this book!!! I loved it so much… :)
This is a love story but not kind of hearts & flowers type… Lily Calloway is addicted to sex, Loren Hale is an alcoholic. Very bad combination I know but on the other hand, they can be very good for each other because no matter what happen, they understand each others weakness… Of course not always everything seems fine but still they're trying to be there when other person needs help...

From the moment I start to reading Lily & Lo’s story,

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

Addicted to You is a novel that was recommended to me back in the day when NA was HUGE.
It's free on Kindle, so I download it immediately, but then as I started to explore the genre I decided it was not for me, so this romance stayed on hold for years.

At the beginning of this year I found myself in the mood to pick it up, so I did.

Since the main protagonist is addicted to sex, and the main male character to alcohol, I expected lots of graphic scenes and steamy moments, but instead, to my pleasant

We're terrible at so many things, but the only thing we've always been halfway decent at is being together.

A New Adult book at its finest! So many feels!

Re-reading this series got me emotional all over again. I LOVE Lily's and Lo's story so much!

Book 1: Addicted To You - 5 STARS
Book 1.5: Ricochet - 4 STARS
Book 2: Addicted For Now - 5 STARS
Book 2.5: Thrive - 4 STARS
Book 3: Addicted After All - 5 STARS

Two addictions, one big lie. In order to keep in good graces of their wealthy parents (and to keep access to trust funds) Lo and Lily had to hide their addictions and pretend to be together.

Two years almost to the day and a reread later, Addicted to You still delivered what I loved from before: smoking chemistry and glorious angst.

I always say this is the best NA book/series I have read and that still holds very true second time around. Indeed I think it’s even more true, in a sense. I’m so glad I reread this because I just cannot fathom why why I gave this only 4 stars?? I must have been mad!

Well, already amended.

My preparation is complete. Addicted for Now, I’m ready for you!

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.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the blog tour. And double thanks if you've read (and hopefully enjoyed) Addicted to You. We're so excited to share the rest of the series! Look out for Ricochet (Addicted #1.5) on August 1st, 2013. Trust me, you're going to want to read it if you liked this one ;)



UPDATE: Almost 1 year later

"We're in a three-year long fake relationship. We live together. He's heard me orgasm one room over. I've seen him sleep in his own puke....."

This book offers an unusual and interesting scenario with Lily and Lo. Two friends from wealthy families living with their addiction demons. Anonymous sex is what she likes, what she craves.... He craves the bottle..... Their world scares me, their story had me on tenterhooks at times and had amazing scope for angst and drama....

I’ve been meaning to re-read this book for a while now, and now that I have the paperbacks, it’s the perfect occasion!

I tried to read this book as if I didn’t know what happens next, I really did and while Lily and Lo weren’t good for each other now their love is something pure and magical. I’m in love with their love.

Wow, what a HOT mess! I need to be upfront and say, this book has all the ingredients for an immediate DNF from me, yet I LOVED it! Maybe it was because of all the disappointing books I read before and this one broke my book slump? I don’t know, but the first thing that I thought of once I finished was this book reminded me why I read NA romance .

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.

I really dragged ass on this series. I don't normally like to read multi-book series about the same MCs. But with that being said, I am really glad I finally gave this one a go.

It was a bit too angsty for my liking. But I've been assured that there is less angst in the remainging books in the series. Thank goodness because

Okay, where was I? Loren Hale and Lily Calloway. That twin sisters who started off as bloggers and turned into brilliant authors. My new adult addiction. Siiri from Little Pieces of Imagination made me read this. (Check out her review, too.) But seriously, I cannot believe

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

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
