Addicted to You

Goodreads Summary:
No one would suspect shy Lily Calloway’s biggest secret. While everyone is dancing at college bars, Lily stays in the bathroom. To get laid. Her compulsion leads her to one-night stands, steamy hookups and events she shamefully regrets. The only person who knows her secret happens to have one of his own.

Loren Hale’s best friend is his bottle of bourbon. Lily comes at a close second. For three years, they’ve pretended to be in a real relationship, hiding their addictions from their families. They’ve mastered the art of concealing flasks and random guys that filter in and out of their apartment.

But when they go on a family boat trip, surrounded by open seas and limited male bodies in sight, Lily’s confronted with a big fear. Only one guy on board can fill her addiction, and she’s sworn off going there with Loren Hale ever again.

My Take -
What a compelling story, that you WILL NOT be able to put down until your finished. I loved every moment of this book and could not get enough. Addicted to You has me addicted. Two people, best friends, both dealing with their own addictions, trying to live their lives while keeping their addictions a secret. Get ready to live through their addictions with them. This is an intense roller coaster ride full of awakening to find your true feelings and seeing your life for all it's faults.

This book will keep you on your toes, as Lily and Loren struggle to get control of their lives.

Characters -
Lily is addicted to sex which leads her to a lot of poor choices. She is in love with Loren but won't ever go there again because she feels like she isn't good enough for him. She looses her virginity at a very young age and now sex is her biggest stress reliever. She can't go through the day without having an orgasm to let the stress go away.
Lo is addicted to drinking like his father. He has never had contact with his mother and becomes an alcoholic at a very young age. Such a sad situation that is actually very common with youth today.

Overall -
Lo and Lily become enablers for each other. Once they get past their qualms about not being good enough for each other and come to show their true feelings of loving one another, they become even more of enablers for one another. Lo satisfies Lily's sexual needs and Lily takes care of Lo when he is way to fucked up to take care of himself. But this is a dangerous line to cross and cannot last forever... This is a definite must read for those that are interested in stories about addiction wrapped up in a new adult novel. I can't wait for the sequel!!!!
