Addicted for Now (Addicted, #2)Title: Addicted for Now
Author: Krista and Becca Ritchie
Series: Addicted #2
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Published: November 30th 2013

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.
If you didn’t know by now, I am a huge fan of this series. The struggles of addiction are a big part of the world we live in and each can affect us differently. In Addicted for Now, we see Lo return from rehab to begin his life alcohol free and supporting Lily. It is a tense and emotional journey that I found difficult to separate myself from. I loved every moment of reading it and I hope you have the chance to try this series. It is not always pretty and at times it brought tears to my eyes.

The simple tasks of everyday life are difficult for Lily and Lo. They often spend time thinking about their addictions instead of focusing on the here and now. Just going out with friends or to work is a big task and they are constantly trying to focus on succeeding and getting through difficult times. They have great support from their closest friends and family who are quick to call them out if it looks like they are slipping.

They both face a lot of hurdles and they don’t always pass.  They are human after all and we see them go through both good times and bad. However, they also have outside threats that can destroy the progress they made. Lily still tries to hide from the rest of the family but still manages to see her therapist. Loren is facing a few demons from his past, but is able to ask for help when needed. I admired the courage, strength and restraint that they were both able to summon up in times of need.

This series is a lot different from the normal NA books out there where the characters build their relationships up to the sex scenes. It is already an addiction, the tension is already there and they have to be in control of these situations. Because they both have addictions it makes it harder on both of the characters. The authors are just amazing as to how well they have put this story together. I enjoy their writing style and seeing both Lily and Lo’s POV’s gave greater intensity to the story. My heart broke numerous times but the strength of their relationship is just amazing and I cannot wait to see where things go for them now.

I received a copy of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review.
