From Amazon.com:

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.

Foxy's Review:

**3.5 Addicted stars**

ADDICTED TO YOU centers around two broken people each enabling the other. Lily is addicted to sex while her boyfriend,Lo, is addicted to alcohol.

Sex on a bar. It’d be like our addictions making love.

As a society we all know what an alcoholic is but do we know what a sex addict is? A sex addict is someone who has a compulsion towards sexual thoughts and acts. Like all addictions, its negative impact on the addict and on family members increases as the disorder progresses. “It’s not something that people can easily accept or understand.” 

For the first 40% of the book I was very unsure how I felt. I wasn’t connecting with all the impersonal sex. But I started to enjoy the story more when the secondary characters were introduced.

Let’s meet these secondary characters:
1) Connor – Wow, he could be such a pretentious jerk but I really liked him. I felt he really cared for Lily and Lo and wanted to be their friend. “You two are so weird.” Being called weird by Connor is like a unicorn calling a horse magical. It makes no damn sense, which is why Lo and I break into smiles… 

2) Ryke – I had him figured out right from the start. What he was trying to do and who he is makes me look forward to reading his spin-off.

By the end of the book I started thinking about what will happen in the next book. Even though this book was ★ ★ ★ I plan to continue on because I need to make sure these two turn out okay.
