With a seven-year age difference, Ryke & Daisy have faced an uphill battle in the eyes of the world and their families. Known as the most adventurous, fast-paced couple — their next step has always been elusive to the rabid media.
Behind the scenes, heartbreaking troubles continue to test Ryke & Daisy’s resilience and shape their future together.
They promise:
To never slow down. To never compromise who they are. To never abandon their love for each other.
But preserving their happiness also means adding more risks. Ones that Connor Cobalt wouldn’t even take. As a professional free-solo climber, Ryke is no stranger to risk, but his next step with Daisy wagers more than just his health.
With their lives on the line, Ryke & Daisy head towards the vast, wild unknown in this epic final conclusion to the Addicted series.
***Authors' Note***It's possible to only read the Calloway Sisters spin-off series without reading the Addicted series, but you MUST read Fuel the Fire (Calloway Sisters #3) before reading Long Way Down (Calloway Sisters #4).
It's highly recommended to read the books in the recommended reading order, which is in tangent with the Addicted series.

REVIEW

 

Ahh, so I originally read the Addicted/Calloway series in early 2015. Then in late 2015 we started the blog and I had been consumed with blog stuff and haven’t been able to have enough time to read this one, the conclusion to the Ryke and Daisy story. I also was a bit scared of the fate of Ryke since he’s such a daredevil. Anyway, I ended up half reading/ half listening to the audiobook. As will all other books in this series this was all sorts of amazing. I can’t stress enough how much I love this series and how much everyone should read these books. These people, they feel so real. I feel like I truly know them. I just love them! This world the twins have built is absolutely fantastic. And well, this was no exception.

I know this is Raisy’s book but Coballoway is my #1

 

“I’ve loved you, always,” he says. “I was just too blind to see how much and for how long. There’s a nineteen-year-old boy, handing you his blazer in a bathroom, and if he could, he’d tell you this. All over again.” ~Connor Cobalt

 

The conversations between Ryke and Connor were also perfect.  I truly can’t believe this journey is almost over.

 

Ahh this gang, I love them so much ❤

 

“I go at life at one-hundred-and-fifty miles an hour, but I also wake up the next day. To see this. Right here. Right now.” ~Ryke Meadows

 

Favorite Quotes:

 

Happiness. I sense it all around me. For however fleeting it may be, I grasp it now. I hang on and I ride this moment out.

 

“I’m always kissing you in Paris, Dais. Every fucking time, I’m kissing you. There is nothing that’d change my course.”

 

Sometimes to be happy in our skins, we can’t play within restrictions. We have to be a little fucking daring and climb outside of them.

 

People say you can’t describe love, but I have this theory that you can. It’s just subjective. Do you want to know what love feels like for me? It’s breathing and suffocating. Sobbing and smiling. Yearning and fading. To ache that much harder. To live that much larger. It’s every moment. Every single, tiny one. I’ve felt it all with Ryke.

 

I’ve never lived or loved wilder and freer than with him.

 

I’m not shutting my eyes. I’d rather die inside this moment than miss a single part.

She smiles like she knows. She smiles like she loves me just as much, just the same.

 

 

Their romance has never changed. We all thank the fucking world for that because there is no Lily without Lo. There is no Lo without Lily.
