As a sex addict, Lily Calloway must do the impossible. Stay celibate for 90 days. Cravings and fantasies become her new routine, but while Loren Hale recovers from his alcohol addiction, Lily wonders if he'll realize what a monster she really is. After all, her sexual compulsions begin to rule her life the longer she stays faithful to him. Progress. That's what Lily's striving for. But by trying to become closer to her family--people who aren't aware of her addiction--she creates larger obstacles. When she spends time with her youngest sister, she learns more about her than she ever imagined and senses an unsettling connection between Daisy and Ryke Meadows. With Lily and Lo's dysfunctional relationship teetering and unbalanced, they will need to find a way to reconnect from miles apart. But the inability to "touch" proves to be one of the hardest tests on their road to recovery. Some love brushes the surface. Some love is deeper than skin. Lily and Lo have three months to discover just how deep their love really goes. As a companion novel, it bridges the gap between Addicted to You and Addicted for Now.… (altro)

I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler-free way. If you feel anything in my review is a spoiler and is not already hidden in spoiler brackets please let me know. Thank you.

I have loved this series so far, and I've read it a bit out of order. This should have been the second book I read but I read numbers 1 and 2 first and now backtracked to 1.5. It's a great series that addresses a very overlooked addiction.

I think that having Lo as an alcoholic also helps to see the differences between the two addictions and how sex addiction can in its way be harder to overcome. And while alcoholism is a recognized issue. Being addicted to sex will get you a reputation for being loose or easy. I'm not trying to say that alcoholism is to be taken lightly either. Only that it is more recognized.

The relationship between Loren and Lily is complicated, to say the least. But they are both trying to get better to help each other instead of enabling each other. And while the first book seemed to focus more on the destructive path Loren was on. This book focuses more on Lily's problems with her sex addiction. It's the book that ties with first and 2nd while giving some extra insight into the couple's past and the cause of Lily's addiction.

I think so far this series deserves all 5 of those stars. It's so much more than a romance or erotica, and I will not only finish this series but the spinoff series as well.

How I choose my rating:
1* Hated it. I had to force myself to finish it.
2** Didn't like it. I didn't hate it but not sure why I finished it other than for some closure.
3*** I liked it. I had some issues with it, but as a whole it was good. I probably won't reread ever, but there is a chance I might finish the series. (If part of one) But if not it's not a huge loss.
4**** I really liked this book. Maybe not a work of genius, but highly entertaining. I might reread this, and I will finish the series. (If part of one) I would recommend to those I know hold interest in this book's content.
5***** I loved this book. I found little to no issues with it at all. I will be rereading this and probably more than once. I will finish the series and reread it multiple times. (If part of one) I will recommend this book to EVERYONE!!!!

Just like in the first book in this series, the main characters confront their addictions and take steps to get better. While I felt that some of the therapy techniques were a little weird, I am glad to see therapy in fiction books being used for helping characters to heal. Sex addiction is not a topic people talk about very often and it usually makes people uncomfortable. I like the way the authors put the topic out there and weren't shy about the character and her struggles. I look forward to the next books in this series. ( )

I miss being in Lily's head. For some reason I had skipped this novella when it came out and finally got around to reading it. I forgot how far Lily (and Lo) have come. ( )

Ricochet picks up right where Addicted to You left off: Loren has just left for rehab, and Lily isn't too sure what she's going to do with herself while he's gone. She decides to focus on her own recovery, as well as repairing some of the relationships with her family that she's destroyed over the years.

First things first: I don't read a lot of novellas. The whole thing kind of baffles me, because I don't really see the point. If you want something to be included in the series, put it in the book. I'll pay an extra dollar or two for each book to be 100 or 200 pages longer, but I struggle to justify paying $1.99 or more for what can basically be considered deleted scenes or afterthoughts. Usually I just skip book "1.5" and move on to book 2. But, in this case, reading Ricochet was "highly recommended," so I felt like I had to read it or I'd be missing out on something huge.

Did anything huge happen? No, not really. I probably would have been fine if I'd skipped it, but I did get some entertainment out of it, so I won't complain too much.

Here's what I liked:

For one, I really liked that we got to know Daisy better, and I think I'm going to like her in the spinoff books. I also enjoyed getting to know Ryke, and I especially enjoyed his interactions with the teenage girls. Pretty much nothing phases that guy. And speaking of Lily, I was so proud of her by the end of the book. I just hope that her new resolve lasts.

And now for what I didn't like:

In terms of plot, Ricochet moves a lot slower than Addicted to You. Maybe it's because throughout the book, we're just waiting for Lo to come back. Time is dragging for Lily, and it dragged for me too.

I didn't understand why Lily made half the decisions she did. Daisy begs her to go to a party filled with alcohol and much older people and Lily just says yes? Lily's addiction aside, I can't believe that after complaining that people treat Daisy like an adult when she's still a child, she would take her to a very adult party filled with fully grown men. I sincerely hope that Lily's irresponsibility with both herself and others is dealt with in the upcoming books.

And what was with Ryke forbidding Lily and Lo from speaking? Why does he get to make that call? If Lo's rehab facility and Lily's therapist didn't have a problem with them speaking, Ryke had no right to keep all of Lo's contact details from Lily. My own relationship is nowhere near as co-dependent and dysfunctional as theirs, and I can't even imagine not speaking to my boyfriend for a full month. Especially if some guy I just met was the one making and enforcing that rule. That whole plot just struck me as a little odd.

So, overall, I could take it or leave it. I don't think it was necessary for plot development, but if you've grown attached to these characters, it wouldn't hurt to pick it up.

Una de las mejores parejas del NA! .

Lo y Lilly Tienen la combinación perfecta para un romance de calidad: La química ideal ; una tensión sexual infernal (se me derrite la tablet con este erotismo que muestra pero también insinúa , que seduce de a poco logrando al final una culminación imperdible ); y amistad entre los pares : hay una relación de iguales , no hay alfas controladores ni mujeres sumisas , hay compañerismo y ternura entre tanta locura .

Romance del bueno entre las adicciones de la clase alta. ( )
