Tour Stop: ADDICTED TO YOU by Krista and Becca Ritchie – Excerpt and Giveaway!

I designed Krista and Becca Ritchie’s blog, Nawanda Files, sometime last year. When the twins-extraordinaire approached me to design the cover for their New Adult debut, I couldn’t resist! And today, IceyBooks is a stop in the tour – with a swoon-worthy excerpt and giveaway. Read on!

Addicted to You (Addicted, #1) 

No one would suspect shy, Lily Calloway’s biggest secret. While everyone is dancing at college bars, Lily stays in the bathroom. To get laid. Her compulsion leads her to one-night stands, steamy hookups and events she shamefully regrets. The only person who knows her secret happens to have one of his own.

Loren Hale’s best friend is his bottle of bourbon. Lily comes at a close second. For three years, they’ve pretended to be in a real relationship, hiding their addictions from their families. They’ve mastered the art of concealing flasks and random guys that filter in and out of their apartment.

But when they go on a family boat trip, surrounded by open seas and limited male bodies in sight, Lily’s confronted with a big fear. Only one guy onboard can fill her addiction, and she’s sworn off going there with Loren Hale ever again.

Now the only person who can truly help her, can barely help himself.

Lo swoops in behind me, his arms flying around my waist. He sets his chin on my shoulder, hunching over a little to counter my short height with his tall. “He better have been worth it,” Lo whispers, his hot breath tickling my neck.

“Worth what?” My heart lodges in my throat; his closeness confuses and tempts me. I never know where Lo’s true intentions lie.

He guides me forward as we walk, my back still pressed against his chest. I can barely lift up a foot, let alone think straight. “Your first walk of shame in a frat house. How’d that feel?”


He plants a light kiss on my head and disentangles from me, walking ahead. “Pick it up, Calloway. I left my drink in the car.”

Becca Ritchie is a carnivore of pop culture, television, film and of course YA and NA books. While in college, she worked at The CW television network and put her vampiric knowledge to good use, blogging about hit series and swooning over actors’ abs. When she’s not blogging, she writes novels and has teamed up with her twin sister for their New Adult novel ADDICTED TO YOU. Available July of 2013.

Krista Ritchie is the mind behind popular trading website YA Book Exchange and the creator of Nawanda Files, a book blog that also features books into movies news. When not pouring over entertainment news and the newest releases, she spends her time conducting research in a genetics lab. She’s happy to join forces with her sister, harnessing their twin powers to produce the first in a New Adult series.

    I'm really into that synopsis. The biggest reason is because I've yet to read about a NA novel that has to do with an actual sex addiction, as opposed to two people just wanting to have sex all the time. I'm not sure if that made any sense, haha.

    Either way, this seems like it will be a fantastic book! And I also really love the cover!

    Ah, I wish my biochemistry exam was over already. Only one more. ONE! Then I'm good to go and read my arc that I'm so desperately craving for. These teasers are perfect and yours was my favorite so far. Thanks for sharing, Hafsah!

    This looks awesome! I'm really into the NA genre right now and an alcoholic and a sex addict are sure to make an interesting story. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

    This books sounds seriously awesome! Even though I don't like my characters to be flawed sooo much, I'm still curious to know how they because what they are and how will things resolve for them.
