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 & 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 that 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 that he loves doubt his resolve.

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

Due to the 2-year gap between Addicted for Now (Addicted #2) and Addicted After All (Addicted #3), you must read Thrive (Addicted #2.5) or the Calloway Sisters spin-off series before reading Addicted After All.

I am flying high right now! This book … oh, the feels. Addicted After All is so, so bittersweet. Even though we’re not completely saying goodbye to Lily and Lo quite yet, this is the last book that will be their story from their perspective. It’s absolutely perfetto!

I know, I know, you see “sex addict” and ”alcoholic” in the NA genre and might take a step back. Please don’t. This series is phenomenal, with each book getting better and better. It has so much to offer.

It’s difficult to talk about details of AAA without the possibility of spoilers, so I’ll refrain from doing so. I will say that I love how much time elapses over the course of each book, this one included. It feels like you’re truly immersed in their lives, having known them for years.

I can’t even express how much growth there is with Lily and Lo. I seriously get choked up thinking about where they were in their life when the series started, compared to now. It seems kind of silly to feel so proud of characters in a book, but I can’t help it. These characters, all of them, have touched me deeply (not in a dirty way, Lily Calloway).

All of the different relationships and various dynamics between the characters are brilliant! Sisters, brothers, best friends, lovers … all are significant and beautiful in their own way. And funny! All the banter that goes on is extremely fun and constantly causing me to laugh.

There is something that I have to mention. Something happened in this book that had me bouncing up and down like a maniac. I was so hyped and excited that my face was on fire and all I could hear was whooshing in my ears. I’m obviously not going to say what happened, but you can see my reaction in my Goodreads updates.

AAA updates

So yeah, I love Addicted After All hard! Each individual book, the series as a whole … all of it is forever embedded in my heart! Too dramatic? I don’t care, it’s true!

Now we have to wait for the next book that will be the last for Connor and Rose’s perspectives. As sad as I was to finish Addicted After All, there is an announcement at the end of the book that made me unbelievably happy.

Lily @ Lily’s Book Blog wrote the most beautiful review in the form of a letter to Lily and Lo. Please check it out. I’m not ashamed to admit that it brought tears to my eyes. Read it!

  1. Oh Christy! First and foremost T YOU SPOIL ME BY ADDING A LINK TO MY LETTER HERE. *smiles*
    And now…
    Oh boy. This one was a hard one. I loved this one so much and yes to everything you said in your review! It hurts that this was the last Lily & Lo POV we’re ever going to get but it was just so frickin beautiful I don’t mind leaving the characters the way we are leaving them. Lovely review Christy!

  2. Oh my gosh it sounds freaking emotional and SO SO AMAZING! I just love this series and really glad that Siiri introduced it to me, it looks like I have a lot to look forward to. I’ve just read Addicted For Now so it’s onto Rose and Connor for me. Lovely review and thanks for no spoilers Christy!

  3. I saw Lily’s review earlier this week, and you’re right, she did an amazing job of that character letter. That being said, your post kicked some serious butt as well. Now, I have no choice but to add this series to my reading mountain because I can’t ignore TWO glowing recommendations from my blogger peeps. Stay tuned!
