No. More. Sex.

“Some battles are best fought with a sidekick.”

I seriously cannot stop reading/listening to these books. In less than a week, I’ve listened to 1, 1.5, and 2 (which is over 40 hours of audio) I’m not reading much at all because I am incapable of pushing pause on this all-consuming series! Now I keep telling myself to slow down because what will I listen to next when this series is over?!? I am loving these books so much, and this is my favorite of the series so far. It stil

I'm treating myself with these books, I know but I'm just so happy. They make me so fucking happy.

I love the core six, especially Lily and Lo.

Putting voices to Lily and Lo brought a whole new experience to this book. Even though I've already read this book I never expected hearing it would make me LOVE IT even more.

Gah, the voices were spot on and made me feel like I know the characters even better. I gained an appreciation for Jonathan Hale while listening to Lo talk about him. The first time I read it I'm not sure if I fully

★★★★★ 5+ 'I'm addicted to this series' stars!

I absolutely love everything about this series. It's brutally honest, realistic, easy to read, funny, heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time. Lo and Lily, the two main characters, are easily one of my favorite fictional couples ever. As we already knew from the previous two books in the series, they each have their own addiction. He's addicted to alcohol, she's addicted to sex. This time the story is told from alternating POV's and I love

After all we've been through. Years and years of mistakes, it feels like a dream to be here in this moment. Right now. Sober. Alive. With her.

It always feels so nice when you're reading such a good great book. This sequel of the Addicted series is one of the most captivating installments I've read so far. Usually I end up feeling disappointed in a sequel, but this one was wonderfully written that it's so hard not to feel completely immersed in it.

I. LOVE. THIS. SERIES. (spoiler-free review)

Addictive, heartfelt, emotional, and sexy with great writing and a unique storyline that really stands apart in the New Adult romance genre. The intensity of Lily and Lo's love for each other just rolls off the page. I felt connected to every step of their journey. This kind of story is the reason I love to read.

I don't want to spoil the storyline from the previous books for you, so I'm not really going to talk much about the plot here. This book's sto

This second book in the series picks up right after the events of Ricochet. Lo is back for good after a long three month separation, but the struggles still exist. Lil is still battling her sex addiction and now w

honestly this book feels more like a very very long prologue to Calloway Sisters series so i'm not complaining.

so this is the continuation of Lo and Lily's story when they reunite after 3 months of Lo being in rehab. there is a bit of drama here where someone is blackmailing Lily and threatening her

I was supposed to keep up with my buddy reader Christy and read this in April, but I didn't have my shit together and I read it a month late.

I forgot how this book essentially sets up all the other ones. Lily and Lo's struggles with their addictions, and the friends and family who try to help them. I forgot how dang long this book is though, it took me FOREVER to reread it. Not that it isn't

Coming November 30th, 2013.

Thanks everyone for wanting to see the rest of Lo and Lily's journey! It's not over yet. You're going to want to read Ricochet (#1.5) before you read Addicted for Now. Do you have to? No, but I promise it'll be worth it if you did ;)

What a ride, guys.

I laughed my ass off, cried my eyes out, cursed like sailor and almost punched my computer out of pure frustration.

I just adore how this series is progressing for me. It went from an okay –yet promising first instalment to a very good kind of sequel and has finally arrived to this is it, I’m not going back now state in my heart.

1.5 stars

This book suffers from some serious pacing issues and, like the other books about Lily and Lo, absolutely hitting the reader over the head with the characters addictions. Even though we've been with them for three books and WE KNOW. It was exhausting to read every chapter in Lily's perspective talking about something sexual THE ENTIRE TIME. This overdone way of writing their addictions makes it so that Lily and Lo don't have personalities to me. I feel like I don't know anything about
5++++ stars
Dramatic, I realize, but with our situation— recovering alcoholic and a struggling sex addict—we’re anything but mundane.

The first step to battling any addiction is to admit it, here goes... My name is Pam, and I am Addicted to the Addicted series. LMAO! Only this is one addiction I'd gladly keep ;)

How can I express myself without giving anything away… dammit this is so freakin hard, because seriously this book, hell the whole series has sucked me in and I'm lo

here’s the update. i feel played by this book. i know it doesn’t wrap up their story and they appear in the later books and maybe that’s when they truly get the storytelling they deserve, but MANNNNNN this trilogy put me in a slump. BAD.

idk, Lily & Lo aren’t my favorite and I feel bamboozled by everyone who told me I would love this. I only liked it, and even that’s kind of iffy.

The cover is finally here! It's Lo, for anyone who's curious. The second book will feature him much more but still be in Lily's POV. There will also be lots of this going on...

...just kidding :) Lo isn't that magical. But there will be lots of emotional moments, struggles, humor (Connor Cobalt style), bromances (ahem, Ryke/Lo) and of course -- sexy times ;)

Thanks for all the support. We seriously couldn't have continued this series without all the readers and fans. We're amazed by the reaction

This is the continuing story of two addicts striving to come to terms with their problems as well as their relationship and hopefully in a healthy manner. As if things aren't complicated enough, let's throw in a vengeful person trying to bring them down.

This series just gets more intense as events move along but I really love Lily and Lo's relationship and how they not only survive but how they overcome.

I was sooo happy to get Lo's POV...YES! It just enhances the story so much to be able

I can't stand Lily ‘Lil’ Martha Calloway (20), Loren ‘Lo’ Hale (21) is at least getting better in my head, and Jonathan Ryke Meadows (22) is still the favorite character. Though I'm so not interesting in reading his book, nor Rose Calloway's (22). In fact, I can barely get through Lily and Loren's books and that's mostly because of Lily. She's a horrible character for me. I can't relate to her in any level; she's selfish, weak, lazy, gives up easily, jus

If you loved Lily and Lo in Addicted to You, you'll definitely want to read this one! The only complaint I had was that the middle seemed to drag a bit, but the characters easily made up for it ;)

Lily will probably always be favorite character. I love Rose and Daisy, but there's just something about Lily that I completely adore. She's an amazing character, and there isn't a single thing about her

This book made me feel so much. I was happy when Loren and Lily learned to be better friends and simply better people as they recovered from their addiction. I was frustrated and disappointed when they made excuses and went back to old habits. I cried a bit and felt utterly disgusted when Lily got sexually harassed from people who thought sex addicts meant “whores.” I felt triumphant when she gained confidence, and gave a big FU to the sick bastards who treated her as if she was nothing but a wh ...more

It took a while to warm up to this couple (especially the heroine) but yeah, they kinda grew on me.
