This is hands down my favorite series. I am so deeply connected and attached to these characters!!!!!
I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this book. I knew Thrive would cover the material from Kiss the Sky and Hothouse Flower, but from Lily and Lo's point of view. Is this going to be repetitive? Is this going to be boring? I was very excited to read it (because I just can't get enough of the characters and I miss them) but I was afraid it would not be quite as exciting as the next installment of brand new material.
But I was wrong.
This book had TONS of new material in it. There were a few scenes that I remember from the other perspectives given in KTS and HHF, but the majority of this book was brand new. Krista and Becca Ritchie are so talented. I love their writing and I love how they put a different spin on things we have already read about. Props, ladies!!!
Let me just say that Lily cracks me UP!!!
""What do you want for your birthday?" C0ck." ***choke, splutter, laugh!**
"Shut up vagina." LMAO.
Lily is funny, she is sweet, she is painfully shy and she is ashamed of her addiction. And I love every bit of her.
But most of all, I love Lily and Lo together.
"He hugs me close. There is nowhere safer than in Loren Hale's arms."
Loren's POV really, really pulled on my heartstrings. He is an unapologetic @sshole, but he does care what everyone else thinks. He wants approval from Lily, from Ryke, from his father. He wants to make Lily happy. He wants to be worthy of her.
"I'm going to love Lily how I want to love her. Overwhelmingly, umcompromisingly."
"Our love is rare. It's one I can't abandon, even if I tried. .... When she loves, I truly, truly fly."
Lo loves Lily so completely. He makes me melt. But reading about his rough patch was so hard for me. Even though I already knew from HHF that he was going to struggle with his addiction, reading about it from his perspective was so emotional.
My favorite part is seeing how Lily, Lo, Rose, Connor, Daisy and Ryke all interact with each other. These 6 characters have such a bond. They stick together through good times and bad times. They fight, they bicker, they love, they support, they are family. They are flawed and real and I love them all the more for it.
I wish I could jump into the book and become a part of their family.
I know I'm not doing this story justice with my review.
Suffice it to say that I HIGHLY recommend this series. And this book. Even if you have read KTS and HHF you need to read this book. I don't want to miss one moment of the series.
Thank you so much, Krista and Becca for such a wonderful series!!!
I love the narrators for Lily & Lo - they are PERFECT!!! Highly recommend the audiobook!!

seemed to be largely a regurgitation of kiss the sky and hothouse flower... it was somewhat nice to get Lilly and Lo's POVs on some situations in the spin-offs, but there wasn't a big enough move of the needle...
