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.
New Adult Romance recommended for readers 18+ for mature content

I’ve listened to the audio book because Erin Mallon’s narration is just perfect for Lily’s character. Since this is told in dual perspective, Charles Carr narrated Loren’s POV. I didn’t like it as much as I wanted to but I tried getting used to it. (Which isn’t bad after all. I find his voice just a bit old for Lo’s character. just my opinion)
Loren Hale returns from rehab for his alcohol addiction and Lily Calloway is true to her words on abstaining sex. These two helped each other to become better and make up for their mistakes. The sexual tension between them is off the charts and Lo sets limits for Lil so she will be able to control her libido. Especially when she’s stressed out.
Then, a new issue comes out as an unknown person threatens to expose Lily’s secret to public. It makes Lily vulnerable and Lo will do everything to protect her from harm. With the help of other characters, they will try to find out who is responsible for this.
MY DAMN FEELS FOR THIS BOOK. The drama is better than the first book and some of it made me emotional. Swoon-worthy romance and banters that will make you laugh out loud, I may look like an idiot but it’s so worth it. The revelation surprised me. Seriously, I totally didn’t expect that one. My jaw just literally dropped. That person was like the least one I expected.
Overall, it’s HANDS DOWN AMAZEBALLS.
