Publisher's Summary

He's addicted to booze. She's addicted to sex... staying sober is only half the battle. No. More. Sex. Those are the three words Lily Calloway fears the most. But Loren Hale is determined to be with Lily without enabling her dangerous compulsions. With their new living situation - sleeping in the same bed, for real, together - Lily has new battles. Like not jumping Lo's bones every night. Not being consumed by sex and his body. Loren plans to stay sober, to right all of his wrongs. So when someone threatens to expose Lily's secret to her family and the public, he promises that he'll do anything to protect her. But with old enemies surfacing, Lo has more at stake than his sobriety. They will torment Lily until Lo breaks. And his worst fear isn't relapsing. He hears the end. He sees it. The one thing that could change everything. Just three words. No. More. Us.

LOVED IT!! LiLo forever

What made the experience of listening to Addicted for Now the most enjoyable?

RE-READ via audio (2/26/2015)! Putting voices to Lily and Lo brought a whole new experience to this book. Even though I've already read this book I never expected hearing it would make me LOVE IT even more.

Gah, the voices were spot on and made me feel like I know the characters even better. I gained an appreciation for Jonathan Hale while listening to Lo talk about him. The first time I read it I'm not sure if I fully grasped how much Jonathan loves his son. But this time around my heart squeezed as I listened to Jonathan's love for Lo, even though it was pretty corrupt.

Listening to Lily share her feelings made me tear up. The emotion in her voice pulled at my heartstrings. Listening to Lo's determination to be the guy Lily needs had me swooning for him.If you've read this book then consider taking it to the next level and listen to it. And if haven't read it yet enhance your reading experience by listening to it. ADDICTED FOR NOW audio was EXCELLENT!

***5 Addicted Stars***

"Whatever happens,we're in this together. You and me. Lily and Lo."
She is my past, my present, my future.

All six characters are back and they are battling a big roadblock that revolves around Lily & Lo. Lily and Lo are reunited and are forced to face life without being addicted.

But a wrench is thrown into their plan when a person decides to out Lily's addiction to the world. The mystery around who this person is and the motivation for wanting to destroy this couple was very intriguing. I guessed all the way to the end who it might be and why they wanted to hurt this couple.

ADDICTED FOR NOW offers a dual pov. Being inside of Lo's head was fascinating because we got to hear his private conversations between him and his father AND we got to learn what was on the Lily's blacklist.

Addicted series is interconnected with two spin-offs. The authors have written the books in 4 “phases”. Each phase is a complete story line with a satisfying enough conclusion.

Recommended reading order:PHASE 1 (Lily & Lo): {#1} [book:Addicted to You} | {#1.5} [book:Ricochet] | {#2} [book:Addicted for Now]

PHASE 2 (Rose and Connor) | (Daisy & Ryke):{spin-off} [book:Kiss the Sky] | {spin-off} [book:Hothouse Flower]

PHASE 3 (Lily & Lo):{#2.5} [book:Thrive] | {#3} [book:Addicted After All]

PHASE 4 (Rose and Connor) | (Daisy & Ryke):{spin-off} [book:Fuel the Fire] | {spin-off} [book:Long Way Down]

Emotional and Addicting

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

YES. The Addicted series is by far my favorite new adult series but Addicted For Now was the first book in the series that pulled me in completely. The story is unique and captivating. The characters are amazing and easily stole my heart. Actually listening to these charactesr come to life had me drowning in feels.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lily Calloway. Her POV chapters are always my favorite. She's adorably awkward and can be so amusing when she doesn't mean to be. She's the kind of character you want to mama bear and protect from the world.

What about Charles Carr and Erin Mallon ’s performance did you like?

The emotion. Erin Mallon and Charles Carr did an excellent job in bringing my favorite characters to life. Even how they read for secondary characters was wonderful.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. It's also one I would listen to again (and again).

Any additional comments?

Listening to the banter between characters was by far my favorite part. I had to work really hard not to laugh out loud and grin like an idiot since I mostly listened to it on my way to class and during my study breaks. I failed a good number of times.
