Publisher's Summary

Spin-off book in the Addicted series
Book 4 in the Calloway Sisters series

With a seven-year age difference, Ryke and Daisy have faced an uphill battle in the eyes of the world and their families. Known as the most adventurous, fast-paced couple, their next step has always been elusive to the rabid media.

Behind the scenes, heartbreaking troubles continue to test Ryke and Daisy's resilience and shape their future together.

They promise: to never slow down. To never compromise who they are. To never abandon their love for each other.

But preserving their happiness also means adding more risks. Ones that even Connor Cobalt wouldn't take. As a professional free-solo climber, Ryke is no stranger to risk, but his next step with Daisy wagers more than just his health.

With their lives on the line, Ryke and Daisy head toward the vast, wild unknown in this epic final conclusion to the Addicted series.

New adult romance: recommended for listeners 18+ for mature content.

    "one of the best audiobooks I've ever listened to."

    Stephen Dexter and Jessica Almasy bring Ryke and Daisy to life with all the love and emotion you expect from Krista and Becca Ritchie. I don't remember crying or laughing as much when I read the story. These narrators bring this wonderful story to life! Highly recommend this audiobook.

    "Love this book!"

    Narration really brings this story to life! Perfect voices for Ryke & Daisy.

    I'm a huge fan of this series - I've invested 8 books into it and I had a LOT of expectations going into this book. I was a bit worried as to whether or not Krista & Becca would meet my expectations.

    They totally did.

    I LOVE Ryke and Daisy together. I love how they overcame each obstacle that life threw at them. And Krista and Becca made them go through a LOT. WTF ladies??? I was SO mad at the authors a couple of times for testing my heart and tear duct function. Yup, both work. I cried a LOT, I laughed a LOT. I had to put my kindle down to take a break because I was so scared to turn the page. Brace yourself for the angst.

    But never fear, Krista & Becca take care of us.

    I LOVE Lily and Lo. Especially Loren. He shines in this book and I really appreciated how far his character has grown from the very first book. He is strong. He is dependable. He is there for Ryke the way Ryke was there for him in the past and I was SO proud of him. It's so great to see Lily and Lo as parents too. Moffy = cutest thing.

    Connor and Rose are still Connor and Rose. Although I disagreed with a lot of Connor's advice in this book.... He was as arrogant and confident as ever. And I LOVE seeing them as parents too. Jane and Moffy together - so sweet.

    Samantha Calloway and Jonathan Hale even have their good moments in this book. Not sure I can really change my opinion of them - I tend to hold on to my resentment a really long time, lol. But it was a pleasant surprise.

    This book put me through the ringer. It was unpredictable and full of spectacular life events and full of obstacles. But I loved it all. The writing sucks me in every time and I just don't know what I'm going to do with myself now that I'm done with this book.

    And the Epilogue - OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Best. Epilogue. EVER!!!!! I love seeing how everyone ended up. LOVE IT. There were some pleasant surprises in that Epilogue.

    Seriously. Book hangover has commenced.

    Bottom line: read this book. But start at the beginning!!!!!

    I highlighted the majority of this book. LOL. Here are my favorite quotes:

    "He Keeps going, he keeps moving , and he picks everyone up when they've fallen behind."

    "All I need is you."

    "Ryke Meadows endures all things like he was born to last a forever."

    "Never give up or back down on the things that fill your soul, Calloway. There is no worse life than a hollow one."

    "I'm always kissing you in Paris, Dais. Every fu@king time, I'm kissing you."

    "I'm a man of extraordinary talents, but I need you." He swallows. "Do you hear what I'm saying?"

    "I love him in every moment. In every smile. In every frown. And I will love him after every long way down."

    "Magical things happen in the woods."

    "a story and a narration that stole your heart"

    * i won this audiobook thanks to the authors
    * it took me several weeks to listen to it all because just like reading the book, the story and the words can feel too much at times, it takes and refuses to set you free. i didn't think that the two voices could emphasize this sensation even more but they did, especially ryke's voice and i found myself more than once, tearing up while listening to it (which explains the breaks)
    * the quality of the reading is so nice. both the voices go along very well together and they truly give life to the story and to the side characters as well. they didn't do any funny voices but i could very easily dissociate the characters.
    * the only flaw for me is that i sometimes find that the speed was too much, i would have prefer it to just be a tiny bit slower.
    * truly recommend listening to it, it's a very intense experience, faithful to the book!!

    Story
    "What A Ride"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    A L W A Y S
    The Addicted series/Calloways Sisters series hold a special place in my heart and Long Way Down is one of my favorites. As the last solo book for Raisy, this book did nor disappoint. It was filled with ups and downs. I shed so many tears and, as a self proclaimed emotionless robot, it was a bit embarrassing.


    What other book might you compare Long Way Down to and why?

    I don't know, really? That's like my biggest problem. I WISH there was a book that made me half the things this book alone has. It has no equal in my heart.


    Have you listened to any of Stephen Dexter and Jessica Almasy ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not really, but I really enjoyed their work. I loved Daisy's voice so much and Ryke's just made me swoon <3

    Story
    "Five flowercrown Stars for Raisy!"
    Would you listen to Long Way Down again? Why?

    Yes.
    Because beautifully written stories should always be revisited.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I think it is impossible to pick what I like "best" about this story. I myself, am not anything like these characters. I prefer cookies and couch cuddling to motorcycles and rock climbing. But these two wild characters feed the small pieces of me that long for an adventure.

    I think since the beginning of the series Daisy and Ryke have been fighters. They fought their feelings for each other, fought stigmas and expectations, fought their own families in order to be together, and this book was really about fighting for their future.

    As a reader, it was absolutely amazing be a part of the birth of a confident Daisy Meadows who discovers her voice and the man who always is there to listen and encouraging her to be her most authentic self. It was so wildly refreshing to see Daisy blossom (you see what I did there?) and even with all her fragile pieces, be courageous about her wants and dreams.

    God, I couldn't love Ryke anymore if I wanted to, and apart from all the wonderful reasons I adore him as a character, what I truly am moved by, is the way he loves Daisy.

    So maybe, what I love best about this story are the still, raw moments between these two wonderfully flawed wild characters and their unwillingness to be caged no matter what comes their way.


    What does Stephen Dexter and Jessica Almasy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Like many others, when I read a book I envision the character speaking a certain way. For Ryke I imagined his voice gruff, gravely and filled with emotion. I pictured Daisy always finishing her sentences with a breathless catch since she's constantly moving and talking through a smile.

    So to be honest, I was disappointed with Stephen Dexter when I started the book. I felt he made Daisy sound a little ditzy, and fake. Ryke sounded too slick and forced instead of that lovely gruff baritone I'd always envisioned.

    Jessica Almasy on the other hand, seemed to have read my mind and the way she played both characters was spot on. I loved her portrayal of Ryke, and and the emotion in Daisy's lines. I felt like with her, I was able to experience the story in a completely different way. It was as if I was listening to it from a friend. The performance kept me grounded in the story and I found myself looking forward to the way she depicted the characters and their interactions. I think Jessica had a true understanding of the dynamics between not only Daisy and Ryke, but the other Addicted series characters as well, and it really comes through in her readings.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The purest love is wild and free

    Story
    "SO MUCH LOVE FOR THIS BOOK, AUTHORS & THIS SERIES!"
    What did you love best about Long Way Down?

    I love Long Way Down bec this is the continuation of Ryke & Daisy's story. It's also the last book in the series which is really bittersweet. The last book where we'll see the friendship bet the addicted gang, how their family had brown, the kids, and so many more!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ryke Meadows is my most favorite character. He is a complex character. He cares so much for his friends and loved ones. He will do anything for them. He's also a great brother to Lo and a friend, lover and husband to Daisy


    What does Stephen Dexter and Jessica Almasy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hearing the story being narrated by these awesome narrators was a different experience for me. It's like someone is telling me a story. And I love the way they give so much emotion to bring out life to our beloved characters!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes! and i'll listen to this repeatedly


    Any additional comments?

    i wish this series will be picked up as a tv series! and i have so much love for krista and becca!
