Book Blurb:
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
*Thank you for the review copy YA Bound Book Tours!*

For now, I'll talk about this book based on the 30% or so I have read. Let me first explain as to why I'm not yet done with it... I didn't expect it to be this long. And I thought I could do finish it in two days but well, I have not. I started on Monday but I'm still not done. Add the workload I got for the past days. I do work and I didn't just expect the Ricochet novella to be long too. :o I thought it'll be less 150 pages. But it neared to 300. Anyway. Long story short, I think I'll be done with it by tomorrow or early Friday.

I can't say that I love the story. I mean, it's not bad. Ugh. I can't seem to phrase it correctly. Okay.. Let's try again... The way it was written is so good that I had an epiphany that THIS is how an addict are. THIS IS ADDICTION. It is NOT easily removed into your system, especially if you did it for years.

I liked that they TRY their damnest to battle their own addiction. I know it is hard but they just have to keep on trying. I love how supportive their friends are. I love Rose and Connor, two power couple. I enjoyed reading their intellectual battles. I feel like Lily whenever she looks at those two couple. :P I am rooting for them too!

Now, I'm off to read some more! Will do a full review soon!!! Thank you!

EDIT (12.22.13):

I loved this book. It makes me smile, laugh, smirk, angry and bawled like a baby. This was written beautifully. All the right words was said without making it cliché. I do believe that this is how addicts act. I love that it is real. Lily and Lo struggled to get past their addiction. It is most especially hard for Lily. I get them. And I love them for trying their best to do the right thing. Also, I liked the way the authors made their characters. Lily and Lo are growing to be good persons. 

You know, I do not think that Jonathan Hale is that bad, actually. I know what Ryke says about him but thinking about it, I do think, like Lo, Jonathan Hale loves him in his own f**ked up way. It might not be right but that was the only way Jonathan knows how to show it. So yes, I don't see him as a big bad monster, really. Cause at the end of the day, if Lo really needs him, he'll be there. Well except in dealing the alcoholic thingy.

I am so looking forward to reading Rose and Connor's story. :) Those power couple is really something. Loved Rose! :)

Definitely a MUST READ book. :)
