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.
Krista & Becca Ritchie’s Addicted series is one of my all-time favorite series. I don’t really even have words for how much I love this series. It’s hard to read at times. It’s angsty. It’s sexy. It’s ugly. The characters feel more like friends than names on a page. Their stories have impacted my life in a way most books never will. It’s been awhile since I talked about this series, so I thought I should do something about that. <3
Hello, my latest musical obsession.
Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
And I know why we had to say goodbye like the back of my hand
And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
A better man
If you know me at all, you know I spend most of my Saturday watching college football. It’s my favorite, no question. I was torn between two different “Must See” stories for today. You can see one above. (Caution: FEELS.) The other one was when Nebraska QB Tommy Armstrong Jr returned to Ohio Stadium after being literally knocked out and taken off the field in an ambulance. The video in the link above shows how he came back in scrubs and booties, but not what happened after. He changed clothes and then went to the sidelines and helped coach his backup. Damn, I love college football.
What are YOUR Monday Musts?
