Book #1 in the Addicted series
She’s addicted to sex. He’s addicted to booze…the only way out is rock bottom.
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 as they sink beneath the weight of their addictions, they cling harder to their destructive relationship and wonder if a life together, for real, is better than a lie. Strangers and family begin to infiltrate their guarded lives, and with new challenges, they realize they may not just be addicted to alcohol and sex.
Their real vice may be each other.

I swear this book set me on an emotional rollercoaster. considering i’m not in the age group to read this book i’d day i did pretty good reading it and instead of being “grossed out” actually trying to understand lily’s situation. it’s crazy what world they live in, the way they have to lie about not only their secrets but they lie about the life they have towards one another to each other, if that made sense. i’m 15 and I honestly thought this book was so well written and put together. the wording is amazing. I definitely would not have finished this book if I wasn’t as mature as I am. I feel like to understand this book fully, you need to know ur maturity level. Don’t really think it matters on age. to end this super long and annoying paragraph I just wanted to say I will for sure finish this series from beginning to end
This book took me through a lot of twists and turns but I enjoyed the rollercoaster that was this book. I’ve never been addicted to anything but I understood that it wasn’t something you could just give up because someone wanted you to. You had to want it for yourself and only you could make it happen. These characters had to learn that and they had to learn that together they can be strong but also weak. They learned the hard way that love doesn’t conquer all without work and until they really worked for it they would never conquer anything. This was an amazing book and I loved going through the ride with them.
Vomit inducing! The guy is so judgmental about the girls addiction. Yet the guy is literally killing himself with alcohol poisoning! Such double standards!
