Genre: Romance, New Adult, Contemporary
Two addicts. One epic love story.
Prepare for the worst.
That’s what Lily and Lo try to do when Jonathan Hale schedules an “important” meeting. The problem: after being swept into the public eye and battling their addictions, they’re not sure what the worst is anymore.
In a sea of many changes—including Ryke & Daisy living with them—Lily realizes that the best part of her fluctuating hormones might just be the worst.
Her sex drive is out of control.
Loren knows that she’s insatiable, but he’s not giving up on her. She’s too much a part of him. And as he carries more and more responsibility, some of the people that he loves doubt his resolve.
In the conclusion to their love story, Lily & Lo stand side-by-side to fight, one last time, for their happily ever after.
Due to the 2-year gap between Addicted for Now (Addicted #2) and Addicted After All (Addicted #3), you must read Thrive (Addicted #2.5) or the Calloway Sisters spin-off series before reading Addicted After All.

I’m addicted to this series after all.
So many wonderful, tear-jerking moments have happened in Addicted After All that my heart screamed with happiness. This book was everything about Lily and Lo’s happy ending. Although their journey doesn’t stop here, Krista and Becca Ritchie concluded their love story in a beautiful way.
What totally pulled me into this book was how both the characters grew into better persons. Lily was still a sex addict but she has come to accept and embrace it without shaming herself. I saw the way she developed from being shy to being able to express herself and what helped her a lot was conveying her thoughts on social media and showing her true self.
Lo experienced some difficult times in this book, especially with his issue with his dad and Ryke’s relationship with him. But I loved that he has gone against every obstacle here just to prove to everyone that he is not just an addict and a bastard but he is also someone who has strengths and capabilities like everyone else.
For me, this book was greatly executed. Yes it was lengthy just like the previous books but I loved every bit of it and to be honest, I wouldn’t want it to end because everything was just too good! I loved the drama, the sizzling romance between the main characters as well as the secondary ones, and the hilarious moments. Not to mention the liplock that happened between Lo and Connor. Oops. I hope that’s not spoilery. 😉 But yeah, I just witnessed some sexy bromance there and it absolutely made my day.
I had a lot of favorite scenes in this book and I wish I could store them all in my memory because those are really precious. Now I’m excited for the next book, Fuel the Fire and see what’s Rose and Connor have in store for us.
