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.
Ricochet by Krista Ritchie and Becca Ritchie is the second book in their very popular Addicted series. This series really should be read in order to get the full force of the story.
Ricochet follows Lily and Loren (Lo) after Lo has finally made the decision to go to rehab for his alcohol addiction. That leaves Lily struggling with her sex addiction on her own. Lily worries that she won’t be able to stop herself from cheating on Lo while he’s gone. Lily also works to get to know her family better which is difficult as only her sister Rose knows about her addiction. She spends some more time with her younger sister Daisy and gets to know her better.
Lily still struggles with her sex addiction and worries that Lo won’t want her after he gets out of rehab. The beginning of his rehab is the hardest as he’s not allowed a cell phone and she has absolutely no contact with him. Will Lily be able to keep her promise to Lo while he’s in rehab? Will Lo still want Lily when he gets out?
The first book, Addicted was so emotional and angsty, that I expected more of the same from Richochet. However, I found this book to be so much more hopeful and I loved that Lily is finally getting help and interacting with her family.
I did miss Lo in this book. He’s in rehab for the entire book, so we didn’t get to see his point of view, but I’m hoping to get his POV in the next book. Ricochet is Lily’s story and it’s all about her, and that was fine with me as it was nice to see her on her own without depending on Lo to hide her addiction. We get to see more of her family, especially Daisy, the fifteen-year-old model sister, and her other sister, Rose, who is probably my favorite character in the series.
I am loving this series and can’t wait to get to the next book.
The narration was excellent. Erin Mallon was impressive with the voices, and her tone and pace made listening a joy.
Ricochet counts towards my 2022 Audiobook Challenge.
