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.

Addicted for Now was a graduation/ house warming gift from my favorite sister, so huge shout out for her. I love getting books as gifts since usually people give something you don’t need or just money. I APPRECIATE BOOKS. Especially when people let me choose a book I want.

“Why is it that the people you come to love are the ones that seem to hurt you the most?”

I don’t know what it’s about Daisy that robs me in the wrong way. I already said in my last review that I understand she has her reasons to act the way she does but at the moment I have zero interest to read her book. I really like Ryke but I just found it annoying the way Daisy does stupid things and thinks that they’re funny. Maybe it’s because she’s so young? I don’t know. Daisy is like me in some ways like she wants to please everyone.

I’m so glad Lily and Lo really reunited this time. They had their ups and downs but I found it sweet how Lily wanted their reunion to be epic– The Notebook worthy. I love how neither of them is perfect. Lo might be a little stronger at the moment but they both are still fighting against their addictions and insecurities. But they have also had a lot of growth as characters and as a couple. They are there for each other.

“I need you to know that I’m not going anywhere. I’ll always be here when you come home. There will always be an us.”

I internally screamed when Lo thought Willow was named after a Buffy character. Someone who watches Buffy is my kind of a guy.

Rose really doesn’t like Loren but she does understand that he’s helping Lily, even if not always in a way she likes. I like that they ‘bonded’ a little in this book when she was mad at Connor and when Lo told her a little how different Lily’s childhood was from hers.

I was very surprised by who tormented Lily and Lo. Sometimes books can be predictable, so I’m always happy to read books that involve mystery that keeps you guessing.
