She’s addicted to sex. He’s addicted to booze…the only way out is rock bottom.

No one would suspect shy Lily Calloway’s biggest secret. While everyone is dancing at college bars, Lily stays in the bathroom. To get laid. Her compulsion leads her to one-night stands, steamy hookups and events she shamefully regrets. The only person who knows her secret happens to have one of his own.

Loren Hale’s best friend is his bottle of bourbon. Lily comes at a close second. For three years, they’ve pretended to be in a real relationship, hiding their addictions from their families. They’ve mastered the art of concealing flasks and random guys that filter in and out of their apartment.

But as they sink beneath the weight of their addictions, they cling harder to their destructive relationship and wonder if a life together, for real, is better than a lie. Strangers and family begin to infiltrate their guarded lives, and with new challenges, they realize they may not just be addicted to alcohol and sex.

Their real vice may be each other.

Ricochet is the sequel to Addicted to You. Both of these books are extremely addicting. Therefore, be aware that once you start reading, make sure that you have plenty of time. I always hear "I couldn't put it down", these books truly do live up to that phrase. Krista and Becca know how to keep their readers captivated. The stories include romance, humor, sadness and excitement. Addicted to You had me captivated and it continued on into Ricochet.

Lily Calloway and Loren (Lo) Hale started off as childhood friends. Their friendship escalated into a make believe romantic relationship once the two started college, so that they could live together and their parents would approve. The two however, have secrets that only each other know about. Lily is addicted to sex and Lo has an addiction to alcohol. Lo has been Lily's saving grace more often than not with her "hook-ups". Lily on the other hand, has been Lo's saving grace by covering for him and cleaning him up when he is too drunk to attend family functions and such.

After seeing Lily with man after man, Lo finally tells her that he loves her and he always has. They decide to give a true relationship a shot and they just can't seem to get enough of each other. Lo's drinking really gets out of control and needs to go to rehab to get help. Lily doesn't know what she's going to do with him being gone. Lo is her best friend, lover, and as she puts it, "a guy who encompasses my entire life". She goes into a depression since Lo has been gone and can only sleep with the aid of sleeping pills. Being a sex addict, Lily desperately tries to stay faithful. Her faith is tested while attending a party with her younger sister Daisy, in which the place is filled with gorgeous male models. Lo's younger brother Ryke, is keeping a watchful eye on her to make sure that Lily does not slip up.

Lily wonders if she can remain faithful to Lo. She loves him, she KNOWS she loves him, but 90 days without him, without intimacy is going to be a definite challenge for her. The fear that she has (beside the obvious) is that Lo will come back and be healthy and she still remains the same. She is afraid that he won't like what he sees when he is sober. She has 90 days to remain loyal, get help and rediscover herself. With the distance between them, it should only make the love grow fonder. However ... Lily craves the touch of a man, of Lo. Can Lily remain faithful? Will Lo still love her when he returns? Is their love really too much?

I highly recommend reading this series. Not only do we get to fall in love with the main characters, but the fact that Lily's sister's are involved makes these books even more appealing. I can only hope that Ryke and Daisy end up together at some point. From the beginning, Daisy had shown interest in Ryke. Lily not liking that idea, keeps reminding Daisy that he is much older than she is. The attraction and chemistry is definitely there. I smell another intense relationship. The Calloway girls obviously know how to love!

The next book in the series "Addicted for Now", will be hitting the shelves in November of this year. I for one, cannot wait to read it. Praises to Krista and Becca for a job well done. If you haven't read both Addicted to You and Ricochet, what are you waiting for? Go run and your copies now.... you will NOT be disappointed!!!
