THRIVE: Release Day!

The day has finally arrived!!  Most, if not all, of you are probably busy reading Thrive, book #2.5 in the Addicted Series right now.

I can’t really figure out why more people are not reading this series.

You know your typical romance novel with an über hot, bad boy, alpha male who’s very possessive over his girl, and the equally hot, virginal damsel in distress who needs rescuing? Well, scrap that. This isn’t your normal boy meets girl, automatic sexual attraction and tension, they fall in love instantly, get married, and live happily ever after type of romance. The Addicted series breaks all the rules and clichés; it is unlike any other romance novel you’ve ever read.

The series begins with Addicted to You (Addicted #1) where we meet Lily and Lo; one is a sex addict and the other is an alcoholic. Best friends since childhood, they know and understand each other well. Slaves to their addiction and buried under lies, they foster a destructive relationship that could ultimately lead to their demise. This book is raw and intense and filled with real life struggles. It will give you a glimpse of how an addiction can literally posses your mind and take over your life.

The story continues on to Ricochet (Addicted #1.5) where we are taken deeper inside Lily’s head as she struggles to fight her addiction. Lily and Lo are separated for 3 months and they each are learning to deal with their own demons without each other. This book contains a lot of heartache and history between Lily and Lo and we find out what exactly is the root cause of Lily’s sexual addiction.

The third book in the series takes us to Addicted for Now (Addicted #2) when Lo returns home and he and Lily are back together.   Here, we witness Lil and Lo’s growth and how their relationship progresses. This time, they fight against enabling one another and giving in to their addictions. The battle to stay sober is heightened when Loren’s past comes back to haunt him and threatens to destroy Lily.

This all leads us to Thrive (Addicted #2.5), which is just released today, July 18, 2014. Lily and Lo continue their battle to stay sober as they face more and more obstacles. Will they make it out together, or will one of them fail and surrender to their demons?  I guess we're all about to find out!

Lily and Lo are two very flawed and dysfunctional people. Their addictions are neither glamorized nor sugarcoated. The authors, Krista & Becca Ritchie, do not downplay the seriousness of these addictions, either. The Addicted series is heartbreaking, gritty, gut wrenching, and even funny, at times, and it’s sure to captivate your mind and your heart.  Pick up the series today and see why so many of us have become so engrossed and addicted to Lily and Lo’s story!
