Two years will change them forever.
When rumors spread like wildfire—like having three-ways with her boyfriend’s rock climbing brother—Lily Calloway spirals into a dark place. Her bedroom. Loren Hale is more confident and determined to keep their sex life private, even from their friends, and he helps Lily in the only way he knows how. But how much love is too much?
Their lives are filmed, watched, and criticized. And through it all, Lily and Loren have to face enemies they never thought they’d see, demons they don’t know if they should bury, and setbacks they didn’t think they’d meet. Not this soon.
And one rumor could be too much for them to handle. It will test their greatest limitations, and if they don’t hold onto each other, someone is going to drown.
A full-length New Adult Romance that bridges the gap between the second and third books. Thrive must be read before Addicted After All if you have not read the Calloway Sisters spin-off series.

“I just want you to know that if you leave this world, I won’t be in it for much longer.” He’s a piece of me. You cut it off, and it’s like going through life with no lungs. That is how deep our love really goes.


Seriously, how beautiful is that! ❤️


Wow! This is hands down my favorite book in the Addicted series even though it’s considered to be a “filler” book. This book spans two and a half years and tells the events of Kiss the Sky and Hothouse Flower in Lily and Lo’s POV and it’s just absolutely beautiful. I found the first addicted books to be intriguing, interesting and emotional but not very romantic. Although it was always implied that the two characters loved each other, I personally had problems seeing that. Lily was always whining and Lo was always angry and they were so consumed by their addictions and inner demons. In this book I could feel the love throughout, and I could also see how the characters have just grown and mature. I finally fell in love with Lily and Lo, they are so cute together and truly deserve their happy ending! Oh and the writing is so so beautiful, I love it.


“Our love is rare. It’s one I can’t abandon, even if I tried. When she screams, an identical one rips through me. When she cries, my world rains with grief. When she loves, I truly, truly fly.”
