As a sex addict, Lily Calloway must do the impossible. Stay celibate for 90 days.
Cravings and fantasies become her new routine, but while Loren Hale recovers from his alcohol addiction, Lily wonders if he’ll realize what a monster she really is. After all, her sexual compulsions begin to rule her life the longer she stays faithful to him.
Progress. That’s what Lily’s striving for. But by trying to become closer to her family—people who aren’t aware of her addiction—she creates larger obstacles. When she spends time with her youngest sister, she learns more about her than she ever imagined and senses an unsettling connection between Daisy and Ryke Meadows.
With Lily and Lo’s dysfunctional relationship teetering and unbalanced, they will need to find a way to reconnect from miles apart. But the inability to “touch” proves to be one of the hardest tests on their road to recovery. Some love brushes the surface. Some love is deeper than skin.
Lily and Lo have three months to discover just how deep their love really goes.
------
Includes the first chapter to the sequel Addicted for Now.
Companion to the Sequel: A full-length New Adult Romance that continues where Addicted to You left off. As a companion novel, it bridges the gap between the first and second book. It is highly recommended to be read before Addicted for Now.

REVIEW

After I was done with Addicted to You, I immediately jumped into Ricochet and needless to say I devoured it.

Ricochet is a pretty lengthy novella, although a fast read that continues where Addicted to You left off. As a companion novel, it bridges the gap between the first and second book. And it’s a must read before Addicted for Now.

The story lasts 90 days. In those 90 days Lo is in rehab staying sober and Lily must live in the real world staying celibate and away from Lo. Both are getting the help they need and fighting their addictions. Just like Addicted to You, this was a hard read. Hard because these 2 beautiful characters are struggling to be better, for each other and for themselves. Again it’s told in Lily’s POV’s and that can be pretty tiring. It’s not my favorite part of the story (I want more Lo!) but the authors do a brilliant job in capturing Lily’s struggle. And the love these two characters have is simply undeniable. I also love the secondary characters and want to desperately get to their stories!

 

On to the next book!!!

 

Favorite Quotes:

“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.”

 

“I love you,” he says again, “and no other man will ever say those words and mean them the way I do.”
