Addicted to You by Krista Ritchie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
5 Addicting Stars
One word to describe Addicted to You is unusual. The story line and Lily and Lo’s relationship is SUPER unusual. It was a really refreshing and somewhat comical and intense read.
Lily is addicted to sex, Lo is addicted to alcohol. Early on they used each other as support systems for their vices. Lily likes to have random one night stands and Lo likes to drink himself away. They pretend to be a couple so their families do not question their side habits.
I’ve read a few books where the Hero is addicted sex, but Lily’s addiction goes to a whole new level. She truly is addicted to sex and porn, which I found so funny because it’s so random. To me, an addiction is something that consumes you to the point where it’s detrimental to yourself.
The beginning of the story starts out by explaining the kind of relationship Lily and Lo have. You never know how hard someone tries to cover up their addiction, until you see all the effort they put into it. The read goes into explaining what Lily she likes, as in meeting random guys at clubs, or picking a few guys at school, but never sleeps with the same guy twice. Lo drinks all the time, but enough to be coherent in public settings and always hides his alcohol if he drinks in public.
The book begins to shift around the middle part and it gets somewhat heavy. Both start to spiral out of control, but neither want to stop. I really liked the fact that both had an addiction and used each other continue it. If it was one person with the vice and the other trying to cope, I think I would have gone insane reading. But I truly understood why either couldn’t stop. How can you stop when the other isn’t willing to and you need each other?
Addicted to You was an enjoyable read because it was just really unique to me, it was a bit longer than what I wanted, but I was never annoyed, frustrated yes, but I completely understood.
