Happy Birthday Lo!

I'm so bummed that I've been pressed for time and didn't get to plan anything special to celebrate Lo's birthday ☹

However, my and Lanie's new partner in crime, Jennifer, at the Fizzle Force group page on Facebook has something fun going on at her blog for Lo's day!!

Head on over to The Fluttering Heart Book Nest to help us celebrate and wish Lo a happy birthday!  *psssst! There's also a GIVEAWAY involved!* 

What makes today even more special, aside from the fact that it's also Halloween ☺︎, is that today is also the release day for Addicted After All !  So, I'm sure most (if not all) of you fans out there are already busy reading Lily & Lo's last book in the Addicted Series.  I'm rooting for their happily ever after ❤︎

Krista & Becca are also celebrating Lo's special day (duh!) on their blog, so be sure to go forth and see what they've posted!  *psssst!  There's another GIVEAWAY involved!*

Also, if you missed it, here is the full Addicted After All Tour schedule with the link to all the stops!

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.

Now for more fun!  When I first read this, it reminded me of that Hothouse Flower Tour stop when the Addicted Characters were paired with their Disney alter egos, which was equally fun to read!  Without further ado.

Inspired by a Tumblr question we received, we’re pairing the Addicted characters with the character they most resemble from Alice in Wonderland. Not all versions of Alice in Wonderland have the same representations of the characters, so we’re going to try and base the pairings from Lewis Carol’s book. It’s the original after all ☺︎  

Lily would be the protagonist of Alice in Wonderland – Alice. Because they’re both a little curious (even if Lily’s curiosities are of the sexual nature). And they both find themselves in heaps of trouble because of it. They’re both introspective, sweet, and highly imaginative.

The lively, crazy Calloway sister would be the Mad Hatter. He’s off the walls and a little bonkers at times. Daisy can be the same way too. Her actions don’t always make sense to everyone, but as long as she’s having a good time, she doesn’t much care.

“Off with their heads!” If anyone is going to utter that over-dramatic statement, it’d be Rose Calloway. Though, Rose would totally be saying it in jest, while The Queen of Hearts would be quite serious. Regardless, they are the perfect Alice in Wonderland pair.

This was the hardest pairing, but after considering the other pairs – Lo has to be the white rabbit. Alice follows the white rabbit down the rabbit hole and into Wonderland. Much like Lily following Lo down a path into a different “addicted” world. The white rabbit also has an erratic personality, nice to some people and rude to others (much like Lo).

Ryke would most definitely be the Caterpillar. The caterpillar and Alice don’t get along very well in the beginning. The Caterpillar is rude (and smokes) and doesn’t give very good advice. It basically sounds like Ryke and Lily’s first time together.

Connor has a signature grin that Lily will call “fake” at times. It’s a charming smile, one that lets him get away with many things. He’s easily the Cheshire Cat. Philosophical and intelligent. He smiles like he has all the answers but you may or may not receive them from him.
