REVIEW: Addicted For Now (Addicted #2)

Addicted For NowHe’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.

Thoughts: I’m only a couple of pages I and already I’m laughing! How does this manage to be such a heavy topic yet still have actual humorous moments???

I’m liking the added twist of this unknown person threatening to out Lily’s secret. It takes away from worrying about Lily’s sex addiction all the time. It was also good to see Johnathan Hale as something other than an evil drunkard, but there’s still hope.

I know I’ve said this before but it bears repeating. I am not comfortable with the Daisy and Ryke situation. Yes, I admit there is sexual tension and whatnot but she’s 16 to his 22/23! On top of all that Daisy tries to come off as a nice person but I don’t buy it. I think she’s smart and cunning and manipulative. I’m not liking her at all.

Alright so I gave this 3.5 stars because although I really liked TEAM LILO and their progress towards being better people, I just couldn’t get over my uneasiness with Ryke and Daisy. I didn’t like that I was uncomfortable through most of the book. A 16-year-old in Cancun flirting with a 20-something man is not okay with me. And I hate that I was/it was more focused on Daisy and Ryke than anything.

I also didn’t like that I was more focused on the Ryke and Daisy than I was on Lily and Lo.

Last Line: “She waits for me. Just as I asked.

3.5 STARS
