With a seven-year age difference, Ryke & Daisy have faced an uphill battle in the eyes of the world and their families. Known as the most adventurous, fast-paced couple – their next step has always been elusive to the rabid media. Behind the scenes, heartbreaking troubles continue to test Ryke & Daisy’s resilience and shape their future together. They promise: To never slow down. To never compromise who they are. To never abandon their love for each other. But preserving their happiness also means adding more risks. Ones that Connor Cobalt wouldn’t even take. As a professional free-solo climber, Ryke is no stranger to risk, but his next step with Daisy wagers more than just his health. With their lives on the line, Ryke & Daisy head towards the vast, wild unknown in this epic final conclusion to the Addicted series.

“Your lives have value, and your deaths have none.”

Long Way Down is fourth book of Calloway Sisters and second book about relationship between Ryke and Daisy. They’re my second favorite relationship in these books (maybe third now that we have Willow and her love interest) and Daisy is still the most relate-able character because of her need to please everyone. I love how selfless she is.

Daisy was ready to give the love of her life and out but thankfully she didn’t try to leave him for his own good. I can respect character thinking their love interest deserve better but actually leaving is a no-no for me. I’m glad Daisy finally found her dream but I just wish she stopped seeing herself as invisible to her sisters.

“… our favorite Sayings from Ryke Meadows.
My favorite: I fucking love you.
Willow’s: I don’t fucking understand Tumblr.
Lo’s: Fuck you, you fucking fuck.
Lily’s: Fucking fantastic.
Rose’s: No means no. Better yet, fuck no.
Connor’s: Connor Cobalt is a fucking narcissist.”

I find Ryke’s confusion towards certain words like cinnamon roll adorable.

I don’t understand core six’s fans in this book. They’re upset about them not wanting to do another show but they’re still harassing them. It might be because I have always been more fan of books, TV shows or ships but I never got why people get so obsessed over celebrities. They’re normal people too and there’s a reason I never even tweet at any actors.

I haven’t been biggest Teen Wolf fan since Isaac Lahey left the show but I love how different characters mention it during this series. Daisy and Ryke watched one episode and Ryke liked Stiles aka my second favorite character.

All in all as much as I enjoy these two characters as individual characters and together– I didn’t enjoy this one as much as I wanted to.
