Review: Ricochet (Addicted #1.5) by Becca Ritchie & Krista RItchie

Source: Purchased for my Kindle from Amazon.com
Release Date: Already Released.


Description from Goodreads:
As a sex addict, Lily Calloway must do the impossible. Stay celibate for 90 days.

Cravings and fantasies become her new routine, but while Loren Hale recovers from his alcohol addiction, Lily wonders if he’ll realize what a monster she really is. After all, her sexual compulsions begin to rule her life the longer she stays faithful to him.

Progress. That’s what Lily’s striving for. But by trying to become closer to her family—people who aren’t aware of her addiction—she creates larger obstacles. When she spends time with her youngest sister, she learns more about her than she ever imagined and senses an unsettling connection between Daisy and Ryke Meadows.

With Lily and Lo’s dysfunctional relationship teetering and unbalanced, they will need to find a way to reconnect from miles apart. But the inability to “touch” proves to be one of the hardest tests on their road to recovery. Some love brushes the surface. Some love is deeper than skin.

Lily and Lo have three months to discover just how deep their love really goes.

Includes the first chapter to the sequel Addicted for Now.

Companion to the Sequel: A full-length New Adult Romance that continues where Addicted to You left off. As a companion novel, it bridges the gap between the first and second book. It is highly recommended to be read before Addicted for Now.
I was lucky enough to be a part of a blog tour for the first book in the Addicted series...and well, I totally got addicted to the books myself. :P As soon as Ricochet, a novella set between the first two books, came out, I quickly bought myself a copy, and over my Christmas break, I devoured it along with the sequel to Addicted to You, Addicted For Now...but I'll talk about that one in its own review. :P

What I loved about Ricochet was that while it was a novella, it packed quite a punch itself! Plus, if you chose to skip this one, you actually missed out on a lot of development on Lily's part. In Ricochet, Lily is dealing with being on her own and coming to terms with her own addiction. We don't get to see Lo's struggle, but I really enjoyed seeing Lily grow stronger and learning to stand on her own. She's definitely strong with Lo around, but she's got her own strength too, and I loved that in Ricochet we were able to see Lily realize that about herself.

If you're a fan of Krista and Becca Ritchie's Addicted series, you really don't want to miss out on this novella. I think it's essential to read this one before you move on from Addicted to You to Addicted For Now...you could always work backwards and read it if you skipped it the first time, but I definitely suggest making sure you check this novella out if you love the series because it really gives you an in-depth perspective on what Lily is going through while Lo is battling his own addiction.

Overall, Ricochet was the perfect in between novella for Addicted to You and Addicted For Now! It bridged the gap between the two books perfectly! You'll love this one if you already enjoyed the first book, and you'll love this series if you enjoy books about struggling with addiction, or if you just love awesome characters, great chemistry, and fantastic and fun banter!

What do you think?
Does Ricochet and the Addicted Series sound like something you'd like to read?
