He's addicted to booze. She's addicted to sex...staying sober is only half the battle.
No. More. Sex.
Those are the three words Lily Calloway fears the most. But Loren Hale is determined to be with Lily without enabling her dangerous compulsions. With their new living situation—sleeping in the same bed, for real, together—Lily has new battles. Like not jumping Lo’s bones every night. Not being consumed by sex and his body.
Loren plans to stay sober, to right all of his wrongs. So when someone threatens to expose Lily’s secret to her family and the public, he promises that he’ll do anything to protect her. But with old enemies surfacing, Lo has more at stake than his sobriety.
They will torment Lily until Lo breaks.
And his worst fear isn’t relapsing. He hears the end. He sees it. The one thing that could change everything. Just three words.
No. More. Us.
New Adult Romance recommended for readers 18+ for mature content
“I don’t think I could have survived this life without that girl.”
I think that sentence explains it all. These two have been through so much in their lives and they truly are still alive because they have each other. So far, this has been my favorite in the series. I absolutely love Lo, and this is dual POV so it’s amazing. Plus, I don’t have to listen to Lily whine all the time. Not that I don’t like her, I do. But her issues are so deep and sometimes is just so tiring to be in her head. It still took me forever to finish. I just haven’t been able to get totally into this couple although the writing is great. I’m still so much more drawn to the secondary characters. God, I love Connor and Rose and I need to read that book so bad. However, Lily and Lo are definitely growing on me. I will say it again, it’s very important to read these in order in order to fully enjoy them and understand them.
Now bring on Kiss the Sky! I can’t freaking wait!!!
He’s a lifeline I cannot quantify or articulate. I depend on him more than any girl should depend on a boy, but he’s been the backbone of my life. Without him, I will fall.
“What’s going to happen,” he breathes, “is that I’m going to carry you through this door. I’m going to draw out every single moment until you’re exhausted. And I’m going to move so slow that three months ago will feel like yesterday. And tomorrow will feel like today, and no one in this fucking universe will be able to say your name without saying mine.”
“I don’t know how to live without you.” And I shake my head quickly as tears pool. “And I don’t want to know how. I don’t want to find out.”
“If the whole world says living without each other is what we should do, then this will be the last wrong I make.”
“I won’t ever desert you, love. Not for a goddamn moment. You’re mine to take care of, you understand?”
“You’re the best everything, love, that’s unspoken and true.”
