BLOG TOUR: Addicted to You (Addicted #1) by Krista Ritchie, Becca Ritchie

Addicted to You (Addicted #1)
Release Date: 07/01/13

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 when they go on a family boat trip, surrounded by open seas and limited male bodies in sight, Lily’s confronted with a big fear. Only one guy onboard can fill her addiction, and she’s sworn off going there with Loren Hale ever again.

Now the only person who can truly help her can barely help himself.


**This is a New Adult book recommended for readers 18 and up**

My POV
This book is CRAZY good! This story deals with two very dysfunctional people who find themselves in a codependent relationship. One who never wants to find the bottom of a liquor bottle and the other who needs to find her release whether in a bedroom, public bathroom, or car.

Loren Hale seems like your typical everyday hot college guy; Very handsome, great physique, and funny. And he is all of those things but he’s also an alcoholic who can finish a $40,000 bottle of liquor in no time.

Lily Calloway is not your regular female Penn State student. She is struggling with her grades, a little on the skinny side in a modelesqe kind of way, and has a very serious addiction. She can’t control her need for sex. This is not an excuse to sleep around but a physiological need to find release at any given time even when extremely inconvenient. 

These two are heirs to mogul companies but have very real and damaging illnesses. Their addictions rules their life and destroys relationships with everyone around them. They find a way to feed their addictions when they agree to become a fake couple. The only thing is it may not be fake for one or even both of them. But their lives and illnesses are just too complicated to really make things work. 

This is one of the most emotional books I’ve read this year! I fell in love with the characters and sympathized with their situation. I cried, laughed, blushed, and was left breathless many times while reading Addicted To You. There is was bittersweet ending and Im so, so, soooo nervous as how this is going to work out. Definitely getting the next book!

"Wait for me." The words come out choked and pained. " I need you to wait for me."
