Review- Addicted For Now by Krista and Becca Ritchie

Goodreads Summary:

He's addicted to booze. She's addicted to sex...staying sober is only half the battle.

No. More. Sex. 

Those are the three words Lily Calloway fears the most. But Loren Hale is determined to be with Lily without enabling her dangerous compulsions. With their new living situation—sleeping in the same bed, for real, together—Lily has new battles. Like not jumping Lo’s bones every night. Not being consumed by sex and his body.

Loren plans to stay sober, to right all of his wrongs. So when someone threatens to expose Lily’s secret to her family and the public, he promises that he’ll do anything to protect her. But with old enemies surfacing, Lo has more at stake than his sobriety.

They will torment Lily until Lo breaks. 

And his worst fear isn’t relapsing. He hears the end. He sees it. The one thing that could change everything. Just three words. 

No. More. Us

New Adult Romance recommended for readers 18+ for mature content


*NOTE: We (The Readdicts) received a copy of Addicted For Now by Krista and Becca Ritchie in exchange for an honest review. We thank YA Bound and the authors for the book!

Oh, how I am loving this series! I loved every bit of Addicted For Now just as much as I loved Addicted To You and Ricochet. I've already overused the words different, fun and refreshing in my reviews of the first book and the novella which is why I find myself falling short of more adjectives to describe this- let me just go ahead and say it again- different, fun and refreshing series. And now I'll try to use new words now. 
The Addicted series is comprised of a bunch of fantastic characters who have grown so much on me that I've already started missing them. Luckily for me, I read the books almost back to back but what's going to be a test is waiting for the next books to come out. Even when Lily and Loren are the main characters with an addiction to sex and alcohol respectively, I find the side characters so much more fun to read about. Don't get me wrong, I love Lil and Lo and I am so proud of them both to have taken their recovery seriously and the positive results were amazing to see. There was a lot of drama and a ton of issues in Addicted For Now which were absolutely necessary and they were handled so well by everyone. I loved seeing Lil and Lo's love grow more and more with every little thing that tried to tear them apart and what I loved seeing even more was how their friends helped them throughout. 
Lily's sisters Rose, Daisy and their most elder sister Poppy were super supportive and the bond between the sisters was strong and very nicely portrayed. Each Calloway is crazy yet super charming in their own way. While the parents from both (or should I say all?) sides seemed pretty untroubled and careless but it was good to know that in spite of messed up parent-children relationships, everyone seemed to get along with life. There was lot going on in this one and it was all slowly and steadily revealed. My most favourite characters in this series, however, are Connor Cobalt and Ryke Meadows. Those boys are fucking awesome! I felt so much of admiration and sadness towards Ryke in this book. He's just amazing. 
Addicted For Now was a supremely great read that was a little longer in terms of length than what I normally prefer, but luckily the story had a nice pace and never seemed even a bit dragged. At first, I only thought that the series has the potential to become my most favourite New Adult series but now I can confidently say that it's definitely one of the best NA series I've read.
