The minute after I finished Addicted to You I started listening to Ricochet. Safe to say I am becoming addicted to this series!
We started a fake relationship. We ended it. We dated. We loved. And then we separated. Pain, happiness, joy and hurt ricochet from each path taken and from each memory uncovered.

This companion novel starts off right after book one leaves off, and it lasts 90 days. 90 days where Lo is in rehab staying sober and 90 days where Lily must live in the real world
I am on tears - both happy and sad. Lily has come such a long way to become the person she is now and who she is going to be and I'm so proud of her. Lily and Lo are both amazing.

I loved it! I was curious how it will all work out... Lo in rehab, Lily alone for 90 days... and well, it was very well played. Though we didn't have much Lo in present, we had plenty of him through flashbacks from the past. They showed how LiLo's relationship began and why they started enabling each other's addictions.

I loved how Lily and Lo realized that they needed to change to have a healthy relationship. Sure, they still have a long way to go but the urge to work on their

I am LOOOOVING this series!! Totally ADDICTED!!!

This the kind of story that I most love to read -- a story of two people who are so completely and deeply in LOVE with each other fighting as hard as they can to overcome the obstacles in their lives and be together.

Ricochet is a full length companion novel to  Addicted To You and continues Lily & Lo's tumultuous, heartfelt and emotional journey. I can't get enough of this series!!!

Ricochet gutted me on an emotional level. At first I was afraid I wouldn't like it because Lo isn't around and I thought the long distance won't be able to compliment the book but I was surprised to find myself pleased with how the whole situation was handled.

In this companion novel, Lo and Lily were apart and they were working on getting rid of their addiction-- Lo being in a rehab miles away while Lily being celibate and spending her time with her si

I picked up Ricochet as soon as I finished with Addicted to You - I got so immersed into the lives of these characters, that I ignored everything else: buddy reads, reviews, friends, boyfriend... And it was worth it!

We're so excited to continue this story and share it with all of you! Ricochet bridges the gap between Addicted to You (Addicted #1) and Addicted for Now (Addicted #2). It can be skipped, but we highly recommend reading this full-length novel. Your reading experience for the sequel will be so much better :)

What you get out of it:
1. A more in-depth look at Lily's addiction
2. MANY Daisy and Ryke scenes that will be mentioned in Addicted for Now
3. Plenty of funny moments

I am not sure how a book with 90 days of celibacy can be so damn hot!

But HELLAR!!, so hot!

Ricochet gives us the background story of how Lo and Lily started their relationship of enabling each other.

This story also shows the struggle of each of them battling their addictions without each other.

Typically, I despise books that go from past to present, but not this one the writing flowed so smoothly everything just felt right.

Additionally, a book with the MC separated throughout

I'm not really sure if Ricochet was supposed to be a novel or just a novella to bridge the first and second book together because I felt like it was a little too short to be a full-on novel but too long to be a novella. I'm just going to think of it as an extended novella so I can rate Ricochet more leniently as opposed to how I would rate it as a full novel.

First off, I enjoyed seeing more of the Calloway sisters. I absolutely love Rose and I think she might be my favorite Calloway sister of th

I was worried how much I would like this one with Lo and Lily being separated. But I did actually end up liking it. Did I think this was absolutely necessary...

But I liked seeing the progress Lily's character made with her addiction. Ricochet picks up where Addicted left off. Lo is in rehab for the next 90 days working on his addiction forcing Lily to remain celibate.

Can she remain faithful to Lo? Can she wait for him liked he asked?

2.5 stars - Since this is technically a novella, it fills in the time between books 1 and 2 in the series. But it leaves a lot of things unanswered and spins in circles a bit. Honestly, it could just be because Lily and Lo are my least favorite of the couples in the series and I'm just reading these to get to the Calloway sisters books (aka I need to get to the Rose books because she is important to me.) Either way, this novella is neither good nor bad. Lily and Lo fans may appreciate it more.

I can't count the amount of times I've laughed, cried, and swooned throughout this series and I'm not even halfway done with it. I was expecting a kind of messed up romance with lots of drama and sex.. and I got that, but also way, way more.

I've listened to the audio book and I'm addicted to Erin Mallon's narration. She voiced Lily Calloway so good. I really enjoyed this novella. So entertaining, funny and sexy. We get to understand more of Lily's addiction and how it began. Also, I really enjoyed all Connor/Rose and Daisy/Ryke moments! Their banters are so hilarious and I can't help smiling! Goodness. Loving the chemistry on these couples.

As always, Lo and Lil are just romantic as ever. <3

Lily and Loren are both working on their addictions...separately. Loren is away at rehab - somewhere and it is killing Lily. She's unsure of Lo's feelings, missing him and dealing with her own withdrawals.

Thank goodness she has her sister, Rose. Rose buys a house for them and decorates the place. She also starts working to find Lily a therapist. Finally, she finds someone and Lily really takes to her and does what she says.

I have a feeling I just read an unnecessary read in the series. This book - this series - is so not for me. I can't stand selfish characters and frankly this plot is incredibly boring. I also don't like any of the characters except Ryke, though I'm sorta weirded out by the fact that I know he'll end up with someone so much younger than him. I mostly skimmed this book...
Meh, it's OK.
I was only interested in Lily's and Lo's parts witch means I only cared about 10% of the whole book. It took me an eternity to finish it.

I'' go on and read the next book, I hope is as good as the fist one.
"Ricochet" takes place pretty much right after where the first book left off. If you haven't read "Addicted To You," I have to warn you that this may have a few spoilers in it. This story focuses on Lily's struggles with her sex addiction while Lo is away in rehab for three months. This book was a bonus because in it we get a lot of history regarding Lily's family, Lily and Lo's childhood/teenage years together, and when Lily's addiction began. I found it extremely enlightening, and in my opinio ...more

This was a a great continuation of the series! To be honest, there isn't much Lo in it... there are flashbacks and phone calls so he's definitely present but this focuses more on Lily (which explains the #1.5...) And surprisingly I didn't mind, I'm just as invested in her as I am in the couple themselves. It was nice bridge between the two novels and I think it was import

This is the continuation of Lo & Lily's journey to recovery. Well, it was really all about Lilly and it takes off right after book #1. We got to go through Lilly's days, Lilly's internal struggles, Lilly's therapy sessions, Lilly's flashbacks of growing up and more of Lily's woe-is-me thoughts.

It is not a surprise that all this was written beautifully by 2 amazingly talented authors, but to be completely honest; I did guiltily skim through most

I wasn't impressed with this chapter of Lily and Lo's story. I really enjoy reading their stories and appreciate their journeys, but this one felt a little all over the place for me. That being said, I still loved being in this world and I enjoyed getting to know all our characters more!

I thought I wasn't going to enjoy this one as much based off the ending of the first book, but shit. No. I really enjoyed this one. I especially loved the flashbacks of Lo and Lily's relationship. It filled the void of what was currently going on in this story and if you read this book, you know what I mean.

First off, Krista and Becca Ritchie knows how to write good books. Their writings will captivate you and get you addicted to the story-line hence they properly named this series ADDICTED. Ricochet is a companion novel to the first book Addicted to You, so it highly advised you read that first before reading Ricochet since the story picks up right after the first book.
