Book #1 in the Addicted series
She’s addicted to sex. He’s addicted to booze…the only way out is rock bottom.
No one would suspect shy Lily Calloway’s biggest secret. While everyone is dancing at college bars, Lily stays in the bathroom. To get laid. Her compulsion leads her to one-night stands, steamy hookups and events she shamefully regrets. The only person who knows her secret happens to have one of his own.
Loren Hale’s best friend is his bottle of bourbon. Lily comes at a close second. For three years, they’ve pretended to be in a real relationship, hiding their addictions from their families. They’ve mastered the art of concealing flasks and random guys that filter in and out of their apartment.
But as they sink beneath the weight of their addictions, they cling harder to their destructive relationship and wonder if a life together, for real, is better than a lie. Strangers and family begin to infiltrate their guarded lives, and with new challenges, they realize they may not just be addicted to alcohol and sex.
Their real vice may be each other.
Fell in love with the characters instantly!
You’ll Get Addicted!
Wow. Ok. So. Where to start...this book pulled me in from the very beginning. I mean, talk about some damaged people. This is the most effed up relationship/situation I've ever read. I've never been addicted to anything...my body just rejects anything that's "not right." I mean, I can never have too much alcoholic beverage because I puke my guts out and then pass out. And I've even tried smoking for 3 months, but it just wouldn't stick. I couldn't hack it...I couldn't get addicted to it. So, to read about these MC where one's addicted to booze and the other to sex and they're using each other and enabling each other's addiction...I mean...wow...I was hooked. They were just a big disaster waiting to happen; a ticking time bomb. My emotions went for a rollercoaster ride throughout the book. One minute I was laughing my butt off, then next I was thoroughly depressed. I love Lil and Lo. They are just meant for each other in every single way. They understand each other, they've been there for each other, and they have all that history and chemistry. They have that unconditional love for one another and it's going to break my heart to pieces if they don't end up together in the end and get their HEA. I could not stop reading this book!! I couldn't even put it down for 2 seconds to do anything at all today. I had to find out what's going to happen next. Anytime I was interrupted, I swear I wanted to hurt someone.
I am completely obsessed with this series! I've been trying to get others to read this because it's unlike any of the other NAs I've read...no typical bad boy meets virgin and falls instantly in love with her. I love best friends turned lovers...and the love in this one is deep-seated. No insta-love here. I've seen a lot of people hate it because there's a lot of focus on their addictions and the authors don't sugar coat any of it or scale it back to make it more appealing. It's honest, raw, intense, and gut-wrenching. I like that it's real. I mean...people actually do suffer these addictions and nothing about it is pretty. But in the midst of all that dark and ugly world, out comes these two who are totally drowning and can't realize that they actually love each other so much more than their vice.
I highly recommend the Addicted Series! MUST READ!!!
I love this book! Lily and Lo are the best!!!! A must read. The character development is amazing
