Blog Tour: Ricochet by Krista & Becca Ritchie -- Excerpt & Giveaway!

As a sex addict, Lily Calloway must do the impossible. Stay celibate for 90 days.

Cravings and fantasies become her new routine, but while Loren Hale recovers from his alcohol addiction, Lily wonders if he’ll realize what a monster she really is. After all, her sexual compulsions begin to rule her life the longer she stays faithful to him.

Progress. That’s what Lily’s striving for. But by trying to become closer to her family—people who aren’t aware of her addiction—she creates larger obstacles. When she spends time with her youngest sister, she learns more about her than she ever imagined and senses an unsettling connection between Daisy and Ryke Meadows.

With Lily and Lo’s dysfunctional relationship teetering and unbalanced, they will need to find a way to reconnect from miles apart. But the inability to “touch” proves to be one of the hardest tests on their road to recovery. Some love brushes the surface. Some love is deeper than skin.

Lily and Lo have three months to discover just how deep their love really goes.


Includes the first chapter to the sequel Addicted for Now.

Companion to the Sequel: A full-length New Adult Romance that continues where Addicted to You left off. As a companion novel, it bridges the gap between the first and second book. It is highly recommended to be read before Addicted for Now.

    He scoots nearer, leans a little closer and gently rests his palm on my forehead, successfully invading my 

space and causing my breath to whoosh from my lungs. 

    “You’re not warm,” he says softly and drops his hand to my neck and lightly presses. “Lymph nodes 

aren’t swollen.” 

    I narrow my eyes. “How do you know about lymph nodes?” 

    “I had the flu last year,” he reminds me. “Shhh, and let me finish my diagnosis.” 

    My cheeks grow hot. 

    “You’re flushed,” he nods and tries to suppress a growing smile. He puts his hands on my shoulders and 

leans my head back against the pillow, kneeling and towering over me. “I have to listen to your heart.”

    “No,” I retort weakly, not in the mood to play with him. Not when it always has to end with me tense 

and aroused and needy. He loves to tease me, and I worry about the day where I won’t have the strength to 

say no. 

    He ignores me and places his ear to the bareness of my collarbone, the place peeking from my V-neck 

shirt. I inhale a sharp breath, his face too near. After a long moment, he rises a little and says, “I knew it.”

    My eyes narrow. “Knew what?”

    His hot gaze traces my lips, and then flits back up to my eyes. “You’re suffering from a clear case of...” 

His mouth brushes my ear. “…infatuation.” 

    I slap him on the arm and try to sit up, but he’s ready for me. He leans in and tickles my waist and hips 

so quickly that I never see him coming. And I laugh and squirm beneath him until I cry out for him to stop, 

happy tears squeezing from my eyes. 

    We settle down with heavy breath. Both lying on our sides, our feet tangled together, we stare at each 

other in the easy silence. 

    “And what’s the cure?” I ask, playing along this time, even though I know I shouldn’t.

    He wears a crooked grin that could melt a thousand girls. 

    Very softly, he says, “Me.”
