Review: Addicted to You
Addicted to You by Krista Ritchie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
***I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***
Wow!! This book was such a shock in an emotional, surprising way. The blurb was enticing and intriguing but it didn't even hint at how full on 100% of the time, this book would be.
It was a very 'bare all' approach to addictions and no ugly parts remained hidden. It actually made me sit there thinking about things far more than I normally would when faced with other book topics. I love the way in which it was written and I felt so strongly for both Lily and Lo for so many different reasons. I couldn't actually work out who had it worse or how on earth they coped (clearly they didn't 100% of the time) but I felt so emotional when reading this book. It was completely unputdownable. I've never actually come across or even read about anything similar to Lily's problem and to start with you kind of snicker a bit at some funny parts but as the book goes on I felt awful for her and felt her struggle. Loren's problems were obviously serious from the kick off but he was still so adorable. Together they were so sweet but so, so sad. My heart broke for them. The ending was so sad and emotional and I feel I have to hunt down the next book before I start sniffling about them again. Amazing, refreshing and totally new read that I loved completely.
