Genre: New Adult, Romance, Contemporary
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.
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.
“You’re my stability… You’re my home.”
Ricochet gutted me on an emotional level. At first I was afraid I wouldn’t like it because Lo isn’t around and I thought the long distance won’t be able to compliment the book but I was surprised to find myself pleased with how the whole situation was handled.
In this companion novel, Lo and Lily were apart and they were working on getting rid of their addiction– Lo being in a rehab miles away while Lily being celibate and spending her time with her sisters Rose and Daisy.
I love how everything turned out good for both of them despite the loneliness they’ve endured. With this experience, they were able to test themselves and find out if their love for each other stays the same.
Will we still love each other if he’s sober and I’m wading through the things that torment me? Will he fit into my life if I’m struggling with my addiction while he’s healthy and absolved from his?
This novel also included bits and pieces of happenings from their past. Through the flashback narration, I was able to appreciate Lily and Lo’s characters more because of their imperfections that made them more human and vulnerable.
I love how the secondary characters were also highlighted here– like Daisy and Ryke’s romantic build-up and Rose and Connor’s irresistibly charming love affair. I just wish that there’s more Lo and Lily phone/Skype interaction here and better yet, a Lo POV.
This novel as a whole, was a soul-wrenching continuation of Addicted to You. I legitimately cried and swooned and everything!
