Publisher's Summary

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 and 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 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 he loves doubt his resolve.

In the conclusion to their love story, Lily and Lo stand side by side to fight, one last time, for their happily ever after.

For the most fulfilling listening experience, the Calloway Sisters series should be listened to along with the Addicted series.

simply wonderful so darn good

oh what to say about this book. while I don't want to give away the book, (I hate when that's done) I would have to say that this book just drew me in. I couldn't put it down. in this book we get births, marriage, and a whole bunch of HEA's. I have ignored family and co-workers just to finish it. I know that's horrible but this book was just that good. Now I am on to fuel the fire and I can't wait.

Yup... EPIC Romance

What did you love best about Addicted After All?

Duh… Lily and Lo. I love them. I love their quirks, I love their love for each other and I even though their addictions. Addicted After All is simply a love story. It’s Lily and Lo’s and I was absorbed in it. They sucked me in and I hungered for more.

What did you like best about this story?

I love all the characters. I love that yes, it’s about Lily and Lo, but I love that there’s plenty of Connor, Rose, Ryke and Daisy. Because what makes this series so great is the entire gang. I couldn’t imagine a book without everyone’s presence. I love that they live all in the same house too.

Which scene was your favorite?

I can’t say or it will give away a part of the book, but I love Lily and Rose’s bond towards each other. I love how standoffish Rose is and how Lily craves her sister’s love. I love how silly and shy Lily can be and I love how Rose just grounds her. I love that they both become closer in the book. I have a sister so it totally related to me.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

My extreme reaction was pure joy. I laughed many many times and I was also on edge a few times. I felt an array of emotions, all good, all joyous and all pleasurable.

Any additional comments?

5 Epic Romance – I-Love-Lily-And-Lo Stars

Addicted After All continues the Addicted Series and must be read in order. There is also a spin-off series, the Calloway Sisters, which focuses on Lily’s other sisters, Rose and Daisy.
It’s highly recommended you read Thrive prior to reading Addicted After All or the spin-off series, Kiss the Sky and Hothouse Flower or all three, which is what I did. Thrive is Lily and Lo’s POV during the same time period of Kiss the Sky and Hothouse Flower.

Audio
----

I listened to the audio version and this is my first time reading Addicted After All. I have listened to Thrive on audio and both books were completely wonderful on audio. I’m a HUGE fan of audio books. I can do so many things while I listen and I still get my “reading” fix.

The narrators are Charles Carr and Erin Mallon. I love both narrators and I felt like they did a fantastic job. Charles voice is deep and strong. He completely suits Lo’s voice. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Erin’s voice. I will listen to anything she narrates. She conveys so many emotions. She doesn’t just “read” the lines, she becomes the lines. You feel her passion, her nervousness, her excitement and trepidation.

If you haven’t tried an audio book, I suggest you listen to Addicted After All
-----


Krista and Becca are amazing writers. It’s always difficult writing a series on one couple. With Addicted After All, I didn’t get any fillers or slow lines. I was completely onboard with the pace and there was so much drama that kept me interested.

Lily, Lo, Rose, Connor, Ryke and Daisy all live in the same house. Lily and Lo progress in their relationship. Of course, with their addictions, there are still plenty of issues to work on. Lily still struggles with her sex addiction and Lo with his alcoholism.

Lily and Lo are pressured to get married by both parents because of all the negative press. Lily doesn’t want Lo to marry her because of the pressure. She understands Lo’s battle with alcohol and doesn’t want to add any more stress.

I love this! I just love how Lily loves Lo and to her marriage isn’t everything. She’s perfectly fine keeping the way things are for the sake of the relationship.

What I love most about this series is just the pure love Lily and Lo have towards each other. I love how it’s them verse the world. Any issues they may have, they can go through it because they have each other to lean on.


“I knew from the beginning that we’d be addicted after all”

“There’s something about Lily that makes all the terrible parts of me seem irrelevant. That makes a bad day momentary and a good one infinite.”


The whole gang is there to keep Lily and Lo in check. Lily is not allowed to pleasure herself and its really funny reading how involved everyone is. Like when Lily goes to the bathroom for too long, everyone checks on her. There is no privacy at home, which is really hilarious.
The dynamics change throughout the book. A lot of relationships get closer and a lot of issues are brought to light and confronted.

For example, Lily and Lo move forward with their relationships, regarding towards how often and what kind of sex they have. They don’t have a set of rules, but they do keep in mind that Lily isn’t to use sex as an outlet.

Lily and Rose bond and become closer. I loved this.

Ryke and Lo deal with the half-brother, father abandonment issues. I really enjoyed this aspect of the book. Ryke and Lo have a good relationship, they got closer after Hothouse Flower and Thrive, but the issue is address more in Addicted After All and it was really emotional, but good to read.

Kids in the area kind of terrorize the gang and it adds mild, but yummy tension. I love reading the gang working together.

And much much much more happens.

Overall, I can’t say it enough I just love the writing. I love the style of writing, the pace, the issues, the characters, EVERY THING worked for me. Krista and Becca create this tiny little world and each time I pick up a book in this or the spin off series, I’m just taken to a happy place. I want to be part of the story and I never want to leave.

I love Addicted After All, I love Lily, I love Lo, I love the authors. I simply just LOVE!


“The parts of me that I love the most are the parts that belong to her”

“Lily Calloway...all this time, your superpower has been loving me”

“We have consumed each other from day one. And we truly never let go”

I'm just here for baby Moffy!

The ending of this book was my favorite. I finally jumped on the #TeamLiLo bandwagon.
I loved seeing baby Moffy- made me tear up when he was born!
And I really loved when Willow and Garrison appeared- I love them!

I'm glad the same narrators are being used, I'm associating them with Lily and Lo now.

A must read! I can’t put it down series of a lifetime!!!

This book series has been exceptional. I read them out of order having read the “...like us” series before this series. I wish I had realized that there was a sequence to her series but nonetheless these books are hands-down in my top three best written well developed characters and fantastic storylines that I have come across to date. So much so that I have reread both series back to back and have found myself having to turn the series off on the audible version at work, in my car, during family time, you get the drift I couldn’t put it down. Looking forward to the future releases and further development of The characters that they so cleverly create and get me as a reader invested deeply in what’s to come. And what I love even more is that they are able to write a female to male love story as well as the right male to male love story and make both equally hot which is a gift!

Happy ever after throughout

Although these books have been a struggle emotionally for characters and readers, it is worth it! at the growth in these books is just so momentous. I discovered this series after reading the later "Like Us" series. I tend to prefer reading in chronological order, but having read about these characters later in their lives it has made it more fulfilling to listen to their lives prior to that more stable time in their lives.

- 5 stars -

I loved this book. I think this is my favorite book so far in the series that focuses on Lilly and Lo. It had me laughing, tearing up, and my heart melting at all the cuteness. It was a very emotional book for me, but I loved every second of it.



*Spoilers*



I am honestly really proud of Lo. He has grown so much as a character and through all the ups and downs, he has become stronger, someone that can be relied on, and also a better person in general. The way he handled the teenagers was pretty amazing. He emphasized with them and pretty much treated them how he would have wanted to be treated when he was at that stage in his life. Lo still has his moments of not having a filter and hurting other people unintentionally, but he is working on it, and it's probably something that won't truly go away. I can now understand a bit more on just how much Maximoff admired his father as he grew up during a time when Lo was in a better place, where he had found himself and his happiness. And the love Lo showers on Lilly and especially Maximoff was really nice to read.
I am glad that Connor and Lo were able to be truthful with each other during that moment in the library. I think Lo has almost always had doubts about Connor's feelings and thoughts on their friendship as Connjor has never expressed himself before with Lo. He had told Ryke what he felt towards Lo, but Lo wasn't awake to hear it since he was in the hospital after relapsing. I think it was something that needed to happen for Lo to move on from his doubt and bitterness and to understand Connor better on just how deep and meaningful their friendship is to both himself and Connor. Or something like that.
I am happy to see that Lo and Lilly are picking up a bit of what Rose and Connor are saying in French. It was cute how proud Connor was of Lilly when she first understood what he had said in French.
I found Lilly to be really funny throughout this book. I found other characters and their actions and comments to be funny as well, but Lilly made me laugh the most. I don't know if some of what she said and did was supposed to be funny, but it was. I do feel like I learned a few things from reading this book about just how much hormones can affect a woman during her pregnancy and that you can still have sex throughout the majority of a woman's pregnancy, just not too close to when the baby is going to be born or else it might induce an early labor. I had heard about the way Jane was born from reading the Bad Reputation Duet series, so I wasn't exactly surprised, but I was a bit surprised that Ryke, Lo, Lilly, and Daisy were all there as well.
The teenagers.....some of their antics were hard to read. The thing I don't understand is why would they terrorize people who haven't some anything to them. I can understand them being bored, but all the things they did were not okay. Especially the paint ball him incident, the bourbon bucket incident - which was really messed up of them to do, especially with how Lo has struggled with alcoholism for years - and the breaking into their house. Since I have read the Bad Reputation Duet series, I already knew about these events so I was interested in reading about them from Lo's point of view compared to Garrison's. I will admit I forgot just how much he had bad mouthed Lilly during his confrontation with Ryke and Lo, so I can understand why Ryke doesn't exactly like Garrison and isn't going to forgive or warm up to him anytime soon. I'm actually curious when everyone started to warm up to him as Lo likes him (up to a point, since he is very protective of Willow, and so she comes first before Garrison) by the end of this book and I think Lilly does to, but I think it takes longer for everyone else. I was especially interested in the bourbon bucket incident as I gathered that they had walked out the door, the bucket's content splashed onto them, they got really mad, Ryke grabbed Lo's shoulder and lead him back inside and where he pushed Lo into the shower, clothes and all. But in actuality, there was a lot more going on and Lo was more affected by it than I thought he was it would be. I don't entirely understand everything that he was feeling, but I could understand that he was completely shocked, along with a lot of other feelings. I felt like he was stiff on the outside from shock but on the inside he was tumultuous or unsettled with everything whirling uncontrollably in his head.
Maximoff and Jane were just adorable as babies. The mini-wampa hat scene was so cute it melted my heart. And Lo with Maximoff was also adorable.
This book had me tearing up, such as during their wedding, when Lilly's father apologized to her, when Lo was upset for his son about the article (the narration was on point during that scene with all the emotion), and during Ryke and Lo's conversation about their father. I might have teared up during a few other moments, but this wasn't a short book so I don't exactly remember.
I liked reading about scenes that I had read in the Bad Reputation Duet through both Lilly and Lo's eyes, as it shows just how affected they were by what the teenagers did, and also just how much she was seeing Lo in Garrison during the scene of when he asked to work in Halway Comics. I found it a bit amusing that she instantly knew Garrison was interested in Willow from the moment she saw them together. I also liked the fact that she realized just how hard it was for Garrison to come into the store and say all that he did, and she acted accordingly, assuring him that he did the right thing. I think with Lo's involvement in Garrison's life was the push he needed to start on a better more fulfilling path.
Even though I knew that Lo wouldn't reject Willow from reading her book, I was happy seeing Lo not reject her and his side of things during those scenes, such as what he was thinking during their conversation (which actually was translated really well into the Bad Reputation series as I recall him being really concerned, and he gave off the same to vibe to Willow, from what I recall, so I like that similarity in writing, especially since there are a few years from when this book was written to when the Bad Reputation Duet series officially came out in book format), and during the phone call to their mother and on just how difficult it was for him.
I also felt bad for Ryke and everyone else that they weren't able to enjoy Ryke's birthday the way they had wanted to because of how depressed he was that day and on how it ended abruptly with the break in. I did find it really sweet of Lo on how he convinced his brother, how they hugged, and even his gift he wasn't able to give to Ryke because it had been damaged from being stepped on. I do hope Lo will still give him the picture as that was a really sweet and meaningful memento to give to Ryke. I also loved how Lo gave Rose the baby orange cat pajamas, as I think he could tell just how upset she had been that Sadie was given to Fredrick for the time being because of Lilly and Lo's concern that Sadie would harm their children, and he wanted to cheer her up. So her reaction and his gift to her meant a lot to him. It was also really sweet of him to do that for her as well. I think he also suggested the business partnership not only because he needed her help with his idea, but to also give her the opportunity to have her dream of selling clothes in different department stores, which she gave up that dream to go local by having a boutique instead. At least that is my theory, as I think Lo felt bad that she had given up so much and he probably wanted to give her something that may restore some of what she had lost.
I did find it interesting that Connor loves Lo sort of like a brother and Lo said that Rose was like an older sister to him (he stated slightly different words, but I found it interesting he would say that).
I feel like I had more to say about this book, but I can't think of anything else.


*Narration*
Once again, I thought the narrators did a wonderful job. There were a couple moments I had a hard time knowing who was speaking or on what one or two words were said, but since I was reading the book along with the audio, it helped, so it didn't bother me a whole lot. Certain emotional moments were very on point and had me tearing, as it broke my heart hearing how upset Lo was about the article and other moments. Lilly's narrator also had a few moments that made me tear up as well, like during her wedding speech to Lo. The narration was wonderfully done and I look forwards to hearing them narrate Lilly and Lo in the epilogue book.



Overall, I absolutely loved this book. I'm honestly a bit sad that it is their last book that is solely about Lilly and Lo, but I think it left off at a good place. I am proud of both Lilly and Lo on their journey (which still continues) and on how much they have grown to reach this point in their lives. I would highly recommend this book, audio book, and series for other people to read. I think it gives a better understanding of what happens in the Like Us series and the Bad Reputation Duet series.

Such a wonderful end to Lo & Lily’s journey. Narration is faultless and fits the characters so well.
I know I will listen to this story time and again.
