REVIEW: 5 Stars for Addicted After All by Krista and Becca Ritchie

REVIEW:  5 Stars for Addicted After All by Krista and Becca RitchieAddicted After All Series: Addicted
Also in this series: Addicted for Now, Thrive, Long Way Down


Two addicts. One epic love story.

Prepare for the worst.

That’s what Lily and Lo try to do when Jonathan Hale schedules an “important” meeting. The problem: after being swept into the public eye and battling their addictions, they’re not sure what the worst is anymore.

In a sea of many changes—including Ryke & Daisy living with them—Lily realizes that the best part of her fluctuating hormones might just be the worst.

Her sex drive is out of control.

Loren knows that she’s insatiable, but he’s not giving up on her. She’s too much a part of him. And as he carries more and more responsibility, some of the people that he loves doubt his resolve.

In the conclusion to their love story, Lily & Lo stand side-by-side to fight, one last time, for their happily ever after.

Due to the 2-year gap between Addicted for Now (Addicted #2) and Addicted After All (Addicted #3), you must read Thrive (Addicted #2.5) or the Calloway Sisters spin-off series before reading Addicted After All.


My Review

5 Recovering, Transforming Stars

Addicted After All 3.0, it should be 10.0, because that’s how amazing this book was!  Krista and Becca Ritchie are among the most talented author’s out there.  Truly brilliant.  They sparked my interest with Addicted To You and have kept it all the way through to this 7th book in the series.  7 books!  I have usually given up and lost interest by now of series that has that many books in them.  But not this one.  It is truly EPIC (heroic; majestic; impressively great)!  While Addicted After All is mainly about the transformation of LILO, in keeping with each book in the series, it is also about Connor and Rose, Ryke and Daisy.  After reading each book, I am completely dumbfounded on how these two authors can keep everything straight.  There is so much material in each book, that it doesn’t make sense that each (including this one), has such a solid plot and solid character development.  I think they found their superpower – **Wisdom** .   And they always deliver excitement, shock, and awe, laughter, and tears.  After reading their books, I always come away wondering what it would look like on television or the big screen.  Because that is what you feel like you just read, a screenplay. 

“Fly away with me, Lily Calloway?”

“Only if we make-believe that we never, ever have to grow up.”

“There’s a problem with that, love,”

“What’s that?”

“Our make-believe always turns out real.”

What I adore about LILO is their undying devotion to one another.  It doesn’t matter what happens to them, by them, or for them, they are always each other’s biggest allies and cheerleaders.  They love hard.  Life for them has never been easy, it’s been a struggle and an uphill battle, but from each other they find strength.  That strength is their love for one another.  The world around them may fall, but they will always hold each other up.

“In the very happiest moment of my life I learn three things:  I am strong.  I have powers.  And my soul meets Loren Hale’s in every kiss.”

The fact that this is the last book for LILO, is sad.  But on the other hand, it was the perfect ending.  It was sculpted and molded and formed into a beautiful piece.  The transformation of these two character’s serves as a reminder to anyone who reads it, that no matter what life throws at you; keep fighting, keep believing, and keep loving.

“My superpower is the love that I have for you.  It’s out of this world, extraordinary, imcomprehensible kind of love.  And no one and nothing on this Earth comes close to it.”

  1. Your review!!! Ahhh! Yes it was so incredibly sad because this was the last LILO book but at the same time it was so beautiful. I was so happy that they got the ending they deserved and love how everything wrapped up. Lily and Lo love hard and I loved being on this magical journey with them <3
