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.

***Authors' Note***
It's possible to only read the Calloway Sisters spin-off series without reading the Addicted series, but you MUST read Fuel the Fire (Calloway Sisters #3) before reading Long Way Down (Calloway Sisters #4).

It's highly recommended to read the books in the recommended reading order, which is in tangent with the Addicted series.


Ryke Teaser


Krista and Becca Ritchie brought this series full circle with Ryke and Daisy’s story. And it tied for my favorite in the series, with Kiss The Sky. I have long since proclaimed Connor and Rose my favorite couple in the series and said that Ryke and Daisy were a close second. But with this book, Ryke may have just tied with Connor. GASP! I know. I promise I didn’t jump ship, I just joined another.

Daisy’s resilience is inspiring and Ryke’s fortitude is motivating. They are wild and fierce. They love unconditionally. Each fight through their struggles, each turning to one another and their siblings for support. They prove that no matter what life throws at you, you can overcome.


Daisy Teaser 2

As with every Ritchie book, I highlighted so many passages, my iPad looks like a rainbow. I continue to be impressed and amazed at the talent these women possess.

Ryke and Daisy have an epic love story. Theirs is one built on a solid foundation; mutual respect, friendship, admiration, and love. They play hard and love hard. There are consequences that follow both and they lean on one another when faced with the ramifications of their actions.


I can’t say enough how much I loved these two, as well as the appearances of Connor and Rose, Lo and Lilly, Garrison and Willow.

Anyone who follows this series already knows Long Way Down is Ryke and Daisy’s final story. It is their middle and end, their HEA. It was perfectly and exquisitely crafted. I cried with them, laughed with them and swooned with them. Watching them grow made me “proud”. I know that is strange because they are fictional characters, but after 9 books, they feel like friends family.

But Long Way Down also marks the end of this series. I will say that again, there have been 9 books! Nine – about 3 different couples, 3 sisters, and their boyfriends-turned husbands. Each book has been unique, focusing on the couple starring in that book, with the other characters having pivotal roles. Each following a specific timeline and in most instances overlapping the previous in some way. Really, what these authors have done is create a mini series. The last book we will get from Krista and Becca about these adult siblings/friends/husbands/wives will be ‘Some Kind of Perfect’ which will be an Addicted Series full-length epilogue novel. That excites me because we will get to hear from everyone and learn what they have been doing to make their futures bright!

Bravo Krista and Becca Ritchie, you created an epic series, one of my all-time favorites and definitely one that I will recommend again, and again.
