Masquerade Room Changes From: I should not even have to send out this email. No one in the company, and I mean no one, will accommodate any room changes. They are set for a reason. New seasons mean new changes.
You know this. In an effort to reduce costs, we had to reduce artist housing from two floors in the Masquerade to one floor. As a result, there are 4 occupants per room instead of 2. This huge bonus should not be overlooked. Any further complaints about room assignments will not be tolerated.
A few days ago, I learned my new room assignment and sent Marc a short but pointed email. Something like: His whole life. Nearly all of mine. Can you please change my assignment? Sent from phone It was an emotional response.
One that I regretted the moment I pressed send. And with an extended family that fills one-third of all Aerial Ethereal shows, being the worst or best Kotova takes actual effort.
Circus is family. For most of us, we mean it literally. My email to Marc probably sealed my least favorite title. Look, I understand the whole corporate hierarchy better than anyone.
Obviously for horrific reasons. Emailing him directly is like whining to God. What can I say? My name is Luka Kotova. Thanks for your time. Now let me be. Numbers tick higher and higher, and then the elevator glides to a stop. The doors open to mayhem. Overflowing boxes, clear plastic tubs, lamps, rugs, and other household belongings fill the hotel hallway. Voices emanate from ajar doors. People rush in and out. Carrying as much shit in their arms as they can since no luggage cart can fit through this disaster.
I step over a drum set and what looks like an empty aquarium. Ducking beneath a coat rack, I spot my suite towards the end of the hallway. Cardboard boxes are stacked outside the door, the name Timo scribbled on the flaps.
Reality hits me all of a sudden. We have to move. Aerial Ethereal has always given artists the 42nd and 43rd floors of the Masquerade. Taking away an entire floor is another swift kick in the gut and the ass.
AE has so much control over our lives. At last notice, they can change anything.
All we have are our contracts, but even those usually only last one year. Our lives are in constant flux, and as much as I love the circus—this one aspect never stops eating at me. With a heavy breath, I slip through the cracked door. After being here for three years, the living room had real character. I turn left and right. Mixed emotions bearing on me.
My jaw and lip twitches, and my throat bobs as I swallow hard. I have. Plenty of times growing up. But for a while there, I felt rooted to something. One floor. With everything. Faster, I pass the kitchenette, sponged-clean, and head to my bedroom.
When I push inside, I immediately spot my sixteen-year-old sister. Katya peers beneath the wooden frame of my stripped bed. I shut the door, and her head pops up. Long, straight brown hair sticks to her overdone pink-glossed lips.
I frown at my little sister. When did she start wearing makeup on regular weekdays? Her saucer eyes widen even bigger on me. I sigh. Amour Amour Infini. 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.
Lily comes at a close second. 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. Addicted 1 Genre: Chemically, they're headed for an overdose. You don't need to take it.
I can give it to you. That right there is what grabbed me. Lo and Loren are true addicts in every sense of the word. The authors really managed to capture what an addict goes through and the struggles they deal with on an everyday basis and form it into a gripping story of what could be defined as a bad romance.
But it's not It's hot as sin and meant to be. They just need to climb Mount Everest to get there. Normally I could care less, but the more I read the more I couldn't wait for them to grace the pages. Trust me- You'll feel the same way! Ryke, Connor, Rose They all have a way of working themselves into the story slowly to where I wanted more of them.
Especially Connor and Rose. I want that book NOW!! There is one thing that Lily loves to do to help remedy her craving that I didn't care to read so much of. It was a little overdone in my eyes. I get it, but I didn't like it. I guess maybe because I don't see how it could help, but then again I've never dealt with this kind of addiction before. Either way, this book was fantastic. I couldn't get enough of it! Krista and Becca Ritchie are the new voices of the Indie world- People need to watch out!
Their words ring true as does their emotional story. It's edgy, new and should not be missed! The plot, character development I honestly loved it.
I haven't been this excited for a series in a long time. To say I'm dying for the next book to be released in an understatement! I'm going into full on stalker mode so I don't miss a beat from them. Both of those songs mixed is this book.
View all 20 comments. Nov 18, Rose rated it it was amazing. I really dragged ass on this series. I don't normally like to read multi-book series about the same MCs. But with that being said, I am really glad I finally gave this one a go. It was a bit too angsty for my liking. But I've been assured that there is less angst in the remainging books in the series. Thank goodness because Adicted to You is the story of two childhood friends.
Two people who found solace in each other. Two people with addictions that used each other to hide 4. Two people with addictions that used each other to hide them.
I liked the high, the rush, and how it seemed to fill an emptiness that kept growing inside of me. That doesn't mean it isn't real. There were times she literally could not function until she fulfilled that need Loren Lo: The alcoholic. The functioning alcoholic. Lo spends his days drinking. Sometimes blacking out. His days are a haze of whiskey, bourbon, rum. Honestly, these two Neither of us is willing to give up what we love for each other.
Painful to watch Lily give herself so freely to anyone, everyone. For Lo to drink his life away. To care more about his next drink, then his own well-being, more than Lily at times. But it's all a facade. An act. A part in a play. They pretend to be what they need to be, to keep their secrets hidden.
Depending on each other, needing each other. His vice is a bottle of whiskey. Mine is his body. And Lo's just waiting for Lily to ask him for she needs.
What he wants to give her. They've only ever had each other. No friends. They keep their family at a distance to protect their secrets. A family trip forces Lo and Lily's relationship to change.
They are both finally honest with how they feel about each other. Maybe not having to pretend will make things easier. If he can't satisfy her needs, she would have to find someone else who can. Lo and Lily actually make some friends. But letting friends in, means the possibility of letting their secrets out.
While Lily's addiction is easier to hide, Lo's isn't. Deep down Lily wants nothing more than for Lo to not need the booze. For her to be enough to make Lo quit.
At times too much for them both to bear. But there's no way out. How do you save someone that doesn't want to be saved? For Lo and Lily, they may not have a choice No distance or time apart will change that, Lily. View all 37 comments. An intense, powerful, emotional, original and captivating read that had me hooked from the first page! I absolutely loved the main characters as well as the supporting cast.
Lo and Lily both had their issues, they weren't perfect, but that's what made them all the more appealing and interesting to read about. This was the first time I'd read a book about someone with a sex addiction and it was fascinating to experience life through the eyes of someone like Lily.
It's not a topic that you come across often and the authors did a fantastic job at creating a realistic story that both makes you sad and gives you hope for the future.
A highly recommended read! Pardon my language but this book left my mind whirling. Both are heading down a destructive path and neither one can stop the other from the destruction that is sure to come. Eventually what was just for show becomes the real deal. Lily and Lo make it official and things become a bigger tangled mess with them both feeding each others addictions. And it was scary. Alright bare with me I'm severely behind on reviews but I want to say a few things about this book.
Here is the deal I liked it. I did not exactly love it. First, I struggled on whether or not to give it 4 stars but in the end I did, mainly because of the story's impact and the undeniable writing that sucks you in. You have these two people struggling to hide their addictions from friends and family but.. Wait pause, correction they do not have friends, their addictions prevent that. Now back to what I was saying, even though neither addiction managed to out shine the other for some reason I struggled with Lily's sex addiction.
I don't think I truly grasped how out of control she was until the fashion show scene.
Crazy, I know, especially with all her sexcapades. But ummm…that whole scene after the show was so…. To be honest it was hard to read about their constant denial, co dependency and the insufferable way they enabled one another. It was quite sad but I think that was what drove the point of addiction home. Nothing about it is fun, easy or to be taken lightly. Bravo to Krista and Becca Ritchie for that! Thank goodness for Ryke. Ryke saw through the BS facades Lily ad Lo had going on.
The one thing I really enjoyed was the fact that this book had some great comedic scenes and lines that pretty much had me burst in to laughter. Her on her laptop in class.. I laughed hysterically. My Sour- The way that addiction ruled their lives. Very hard to read, yet so true to life. No denying that the story pulls you right in which is a nod to good writing. Well done to Krista and Becca Ritchie!
And I plan to continue the series! My Recommendation: Now go forth and read. Then come tell us about it on Goodreads! For more reviews got to: Like us on Facebook: Siiri Little Pieces of Imagination. I am not a stubborn person. But also I know when to admit that I was wrong. I admit it - I. Can we move on, please? Okay, where was I? Loren Hale and Lily Calloway. That twin sisters who started off as bloggers and turned into brilliant authors. My new adult addiction. Siiri from Little Pieces of Imagination made me read this.
Check out her review , too. But seriously, I cannot believe I am not a stubborn person.
But seriously, I cannot believe that Tanja read Addicted to You before me - she is not new adult fan. And she read it before me. It took only a little bit over a year for our Estonian friend Siiri to finally persuade me to read Addicted series. Main reason for my reluctance was all the hype and the the fact that I had really bad experiences in the past with new adult recommendations.
Only thing that I can say is that I am glad that I have waited until now because I can binge-read and not go crazy while waiting for a new sequel. Glass has officially turned into one of those shippers or OTP fangirls.
Original idea. The most usual stereotype of NA novels is a good, overly naive, girl who is usually a virgin , and I am not fan of those. So imagine my surprise when I realized that main female character is a sex addict. Yes, I know - addiction is a bad thing, but lets focus here on the part where female sexuality is something that Addicted to You is mostly about. Not the million times seen "I have no luck when it comes to sex, but this one special, alpha male makes me act like a porn star" scenario.
Lily is like any other human being - male or female - with sexual and other primal urges we all share.
Yes, she has a problem, but her sexual identity is not determined trough her relationship status. Oh, sweet, sweet Aphrodite, this was torture to read sometimes. Am I the only one who noticed how we usually hate female characters, but love all the guys in NA novels? Just perfect. Lily, Lo, Ryke, Connor, Rose With every new chapter, I change my answer to the question: Who is your favorite character? This is one of those rare books where I love them all. Final judgement?
Darker read, but still pretty tame considering a topic. Perfect for fans of new adult who want something a little bit different. Definitely only for those over Yes, it has drama and modern fairy tale feel, but that is something that works perfectly when it comes to Addicted to You.

That all changes when Lily and Lo finally go after the one thing that they pray to want more than their vices, each other…BUT will it be enough??? I need him more than he needs me. Addicted To You was an amazing story about the power of addiction, the people enabling their addictions and watching the one you love hurt themselves for a few moments of peace.
It goes to show that some addictions are born from circumstance and others are just in us, how could you live knowing that there is a monster you have to feed constantly, not being in control of your thoughts, actions or your body.
It was a beautifully-sad story that I absolutely loved. Lily and Lo, were so selfish in their own love for each other, resulting in another kind of addiction to add to the one they already had. I spent the first part of the book, literally pulling my hair out with the tension between the two, their addiction making them to be blind to each others attraction. If you haven't read this, you NEED to! I waited 4 fraking months. I honestly can't think of a single thing I disliked.
From the characters to the plot, it was all incredible and I'm beyond happy to see that there are several more books to come. Sex addict. That's pretty much the only thing Lily sees when she looks at herself, but she is so much more. Addiction is a terrible thing to have and a terrible thing to watch, but never once did she deny it.
Unfortunately she was just helpless as to how to stop it. I've protected him. But when rock bottom hits, she knows everything is going to change and even though she's scared she tries very hard to be there for Lo. I am proud. Somewhere, deep down, I know I'm proud. It becomes hard to look at yourself and not see that fatal flaw, it becomes hard to be around loved ones because you think that's all they see.
Lily was selfish at times, she pushed her family away, she became dependent on Lo and his ability to keep her secret, and she did reckless things that could have gotten her into serious trouble. She's most definitely flawed, but she was real. I'm not missing the opportunity to hook up in a blue bathroom. Hopefully with blue toilet seats. He could be mean and thoughtless. But it was never just for the purpose of hurting Lily, in fact that was the last thing he ever wanted to do. At first I really had no idea how he felt, so it easy to understand how Lily would be confused.
But once he admits how feels he never holds back again. He knows who Lily is and even though it killed him to see her with all those other guys, he understood, and he loved her anyways. He gave as much of himself as he could And when he couldn't, when he realized how much his addiction affected her, he decided to get help. Supporting Characters They were just as incredible.
I spent half the novel trying to figure Rose and Lo's dad out, they were very interesting and complex characters. I couldn't decide whether they really loved Lily and Lo, but it was just a matter of the way they knew how to show it.
It was so nice and refreshing not to see any wooden characters, each person had depth and I can't wait to get inside Rose's head and see her relationship with Connor another secondary that I loved!! Addiction, of any kind, is tough and here we had TWO addictions plus countless other hardships and yet, the book never felt too heavy and I loved that.
I loved that I didn't feel weighed down after reading it, all I wanted was more! It never dragged, even "dull" scenes made me want to keep reading because that's how good the characters and the writing are.
This is a must-must-must read. It's safe to say, I'm addicted Lo has too. They've also heard each other: BUT if you were ever gonna step outside the box, it should be this one!! Because their addictions play a HUGE part in these decisions. Completely devoted. This is not your traditional "lovey dovey" romance book. This story is about a couple who battle with addiction in their daily lives.
It is dark,raw,unsettling,ugly; but most importantly it is honest and very realistic. Addiction is not pretty, nor is it fun. Lily and Loren have grown up together, and from a very young age they have learned to enable one another and share each others secrets.
This is their story, and it is unlike anything I have ever read before. I applaud the author for writing This is not your traditional "lovey dovey" romance book. I applaud the author for writing a story that is unconventional and could be looked upon as controversial. Having had addiction touch my own life through my family, I can honestly say that this is a very accurate description of what living with addiction is like.
Also, it doesn't just affect the person who is addicted; but the family as a whole. I found this story to be extremely powerful, and it broke my heart to watch as Lily and Lo isolated themselves from their loved ones just so they could continue on in their sickness.
You see, that is what addiction really is; a sickness. Lily and Lo have been going to college and living together for three years. Their families are under the assumption that they have been in a love relationship for that amount of time as well.
