Publisher's Summary

He's addicted to booze. She's addicted to sex... staying sober is only half the battle. No. More. Sex. Those are the three words Lily Calloway fears the most. But Loren Hale is determined to be with Lily without enabling her dangerous compulsions. With their new living situation - sleeping in the same bed, for real, together - Lily has new battles. Like not jumping Lo's bones every night. Not being consumed by sex and his body. Loren plans to stay sober, to right all of his wrongs. So when someone threatens to expose Lily's secret to her family and the public, he promises that he'll do anything to protect her. But with old enemies surfacing, Lo has more at stake than his sobriety. They will torment Lily until Lo breaks. And his worst fear isn't relapsing. He hears the end. He sees it. The one thing that could change everything. Just three words. No. More. Us.

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

Really????

Well I almost gave up on this one. Lily is so unbelievably (I hate to use this word) stupid that I couldn't take it. The choices she makes, make me cringe. However I do realize this is a series about overcoming addictions and growing and maturing. She is only 20 but I don't think I was ever around anyone as immature as that at 20. At the end there seemed to be some improvement I had decided I was done with this series but I think I will finish it out.

LOVED IT!! LiLo forever

What made the experience of listening to Addicted for Now the most enjoyable?

RE-READ via audio (2/26/2015)! Putting voices to Lily and Lo brought a whole new experience to this book. Even though I've already read this book I never expected hearing it would make me LOVE IT even more.

Gah, the voices were spot on and made me feel like I know the characters even better. I gained an appreciation for Jonathan Hale while listening to Lo talk about him. The first time I read it I'm not sure if I fully grasped how much Jonathan loves his son. But this time around my heart squeezed as I listened to Jonathan's love for Lo, even though it was pretty corrupt.

Listening to Lily share her feelings made me tear up. The emotion in her voice pulled at my heartstrings. Listening to Lo's determination to be the guy Lily needs had me swooning for him.If you've read this book then consider taking it to the next level and listen to it. And if haven't read it yet enhance your reading experience by listening to it. ADDICTED FOR NOW audio was EXCELLENT!

***5 Addicted Stars***

"Whatever happens,we're in this together. You and me. Lily and Lo."
She is my past, my present, my future.

All six characters are back and they are battling a big roadblock that revolves around Lily & Lo. Lily and Lo are reunited and are forced to face life without being addicted.

But a wrench is thrown into their plan when a person decides to out Lily's addiction to the world. The mystery around who this person is and the motivation for wanting to destroy this couple was very intriguing. I guessed all the way to the end who it might be and why they wanted to hurt this couple.

ADDICTED FOR NOW offers a dual pov. Being inside of Lo's head was fascinating because we got to hear his private conversations between him and his father AND we got to learn what was on the Lily's blacklist.

Emotional and Addicting

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

YES. The Addicted series is by far my favorite new adult series but Addicted For Now was the first book in the series that pulled me in completely. The story is unique and captivating. The characters are amazing and easily stole my heart. Actually listening to these charactesr come to life had me drowning in feels.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lily Calloway. Her POV chapters are always my favorite. She's adorably awkward and can be so amusing when she doesn't mean to be. She's the kind of character you want to mama bear and protect from the world.

What about Charles Carr and Erin Mallon ’s performance did you like?

The emotion. Erin Mallon and Charles Carr did an excellent job in bringing my favorite characters to life. Even how they read for secondary characters was wonderful.

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

Yes. It's also one I would listen to again (and again).

Any additional comments?

Listening to the banter between characters was by far my favorite part. I had to work really hard not to laugh out loud and grin like an idiot since I mostly listened to it on my way to class and during my study breaks. I failed a good number of times.

ADDICTED TO THIS SERIES

I love this whole series. Lo and Lily are just one out of of the 3 couples that I can't get enough of. This series is about love, heartache, addictions, family, the struggles celebrities face, the ups and downs of being in the media, having every single thing you do or choice you make scrutinized and so much more.

Intense, emotional read

Well that was a hugely intense, emotional read.

Lo and Lily are reunited but the path to having a 'normal' has only just begun.

Individually they battle with their own demons and addictions. Lo is way ahead in this after his stint in rehab and now he is carefully guiding Lily to help her curb her own impulsive desires.

I love how much these two love and care for each other. Eventually they will get to a point where each of them will be enough for each other but it will take time and there will be a few bumps along the way.

The relationship between Ryke and Lo really develops into a genuine brotherly love and they really are there for each other, it's so nice for Lo to have someone in his family like that. I loved all the interactions between Daisy & Ryke and very much looking forward to reading their story.

Lo & Lily go through a lot of shite in this story but the one thing that doesn't change is their unwavering love for each other. Loved this :)

I've been Addicted since the beginning

Holy wow!. Just holy moly! The twists and turns in this book came at me from all sides. I wasn't expecting it, but I loved it. My jaw dropped on more than one occasion. I just didn't see some of the problems that would come at Lo and Lily.

And those twists? Those problems? That drama? It drove the story. Yes, Lo and Lily are why we read. They are the couple we are rooting for because they seem to have the world against them. Yet, they deserve love just like everyone else. And this is their battle. Their story.

Our regular favorites are back to help Lily and Loren. You'll learn a little more about Conner Cobalt, Ryke Meadows, Daisy and Rose. You'll learn about those who are willing to sacrifice those they love just to get a step ahead of their past.

You're going to see the dark side of this love, the depths of addiction, and the loyalty that lies within them.
