Book Review: Ricochet by Krista and Becca Ritchie

Ricochet (Addicted #1.5)
By Krista and Becca Ritchie
Release Date: May 22, 2014

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.

I fell in love with Lily and Lo in the first book of this series and the way things ended in Addicted to You, I HAD to know what would happen next to them. Would they stay together? Would they beat their addictions?? I DIDN'T KNOW AND IT WAS KILLING ME. 

While Lo is off at rehab trying to overcome his addiction to alcohol, Lily is left to try and ignore her cravings for sex and pleasure. Without her rock, though, Lily finds it harder and harder to resist. Lily finds herself surrounded by people who are determined to help her through her addiction, but can she stay faithful to the only guy she's ever loved, or ruin it all because of her addiction? 

I wasn't sure how I would feel about an entire book without Lo (while he's in rehab) but I still freaking loved this book. We may not have gotten the present Lo, but there were plenty of flashbacks to Lo and Lily's previous relationship where we got to see them when they were falling for each other and at the very beginning of their addictions. It was so sad how responsible they both felt for feeding one another's addiction and I hated watching them deal with the repercussions of those addictions because I cared about them so much. Krista and Becca really make me see Lily in a nonjudgmental way and really understand what she was going through as a sex addict. 

While I loved Lo and Lily's relationship in this book, I also loved the relationship Lily had with the side characters and the relationship those characters had with one another. Rose is the best and I absolutely adore her interesting and sweet relationship with Conner. I am BEYOND excited to finally get to Rose's books in this series, but I've got to figure out what happens to Lo and Lily next before I get there! I also loved Ryke's character and his strange relationship with Daisy. I JUST WANT MORE OF ALL OF THE CHARACTERS. NOW. 

If you can't tell, I am head over heels in love with this series. While this is book 1.5, it is still a glorious 260 pages that is necessary in understanding Lo and Lily's relationship and journey together. If you haven't started this series yet, you absolutely have to! And if you haven't read anything by Krista and Becca Ritchie, that is an absolute crime. Pick up any one of their books and you are guaranteed to fall in love with their damaged, but utterly lovable characters.


  1. This is an amazing series. You have to read all ten of them. Krista and Becca are such sweethearts and they have a lot of extras for these novels that are just *muah*.

  2. This pleases me oh so much. I am taking full credit for introducing you to this series/ladies :')
