I am SO EXCITED to be taking part in this blog tour. I LOVE the Addicted series and I LOVE Becca & Krista Ritchie. So the opportunity to take part in the tour AND to interview them was just something that I could not pass up!
Book Release: 31st October
(that’s just 2 more days!!!!!)
Two addicts. One epic love story.
Prepare for the worst.
That’s what Lily and Lo try to do when Jonathan Hale schedules an “important” meeting. The problem: after being swept into the public eye and battling their addictions, they’re not sure what the worst is anymore.
In a sea of many changes—including Ryke & Daisy living with them—Lily realizes that the best part of her fluctuating hormones might just be the worst.
Her sex drive is out of control.
Loren knows that she’s insatiable, but he’s not giving up on her. She’s too much a part of him. And as he carries more and more responsibility, some of the people that he loves doubt his resolve.
In the conclusion to their love story, Lily & Lo stand side-by-side to fight, one last time, for their happily ever after.
Due to the 2-year gap between Addicted for Now (Addicted #2) and Addicted After All (Addicted #3), you must read Thrive (Addicted #2.5) or the Calloway Sisters spin-off series before reading Addicted After All.
Krista & Becca Ritchie are identical twins. They write New Adult books that make you cringe, gasp, and go ooh-la-la. (If you do that sort of thing.) They are currently working on the spin-offs and final books in the Addicted series.
Favourite quote from Addicted After All?
Krista: I’m not sure I can share my favorite quote without there being spoilers involved. But I will say that I love many quotes from AAA. And most of my favs are between Lily & Lo.
Becca: Same! I wish I could share, but it’d be spoilery. I’ve been doing my best to keep secrets (even though it’s so tempting to spill some stuff). I think we’ve succeeded in staying quiet for this book, which I’m super happy about!
Hardest part of writing Addicted After All?
Krista: The hardest part of AAA was probably incorporating the multiple storylines and plots. There’s a lot packed into the book, even if the main focus throughout is Lily & Lo.
Becca: Agreed. We definitely had plot-points we needed to cover, but we always start off scenes with the mentality: “what do we want to see?” not necessarily “what plot needs to come next?” That way it’s more fun for us to write and more fun for you to read. So we had to constantly check ourselves and make sure to sprinkle things in everywhere.
Favourite book of the entire Addicted/Calloway Sister Series to write?
Krista: That’s so hard! My favorite book and my favorite one to write are probably different. Kiss the Sky is my favorite book because it’s fun and the most different book in the series. It also has a lot of themes I love, but it was the most difficult to write. Therefore, my favorite book to write is probably Addicted After All. Hands down. It was so enjoyable and satisfying. I loved writing it from beginning to end.
Becca: Kiss the Sky was the hardest to write! Gah. It was stressful at times, but it was a rewarding book. Same for Thrive. But like Krista, Addicted After All has been the most enjoyable book to write of the entire series. We’ve said that to each other multiple times since we’ve finished the novel. Maybe it’s because we’ve reached the end of the story, with lots of closure. AAA is almost my favorite 🙂
Lo, Ryke or Connor? If you could wish one of them to be a real life person then who would you pick?
Krista: Hands down, Connor. He’s unlike anyone else, so it be really interesting to see him in the real world.
Becca: I think there are probably a few Lo & Rykes already existing in the world. So I’d say Connor for the pure fact that I’d love to meet a Connor. Just to see him in the flesh and know that there’s someone like him out there. Not to date him, necessarily.
If you were a superhero what superpower would you have and what would you call yourself?
Krista: Definitely teleportation. I absolutely hate traveling, so this would be Ah-Mazing. And even though I’d be a teleporter and I should probably have a name like “Blink” I’d still want to be called “Kaboom.” Because I find it kind of badass but cute. And, you know, it starts with a K 😉
Becca: We always choose the same thing because it’s the most practical. Teleporation is the pinnacle of all superpowers. Mind reading, blah. I don’t want to listen to thoughts when I can blink and ta-da, I’m at Disney World! Flying is unnecessary and slightly terrifying. I’d want to be called “Magic.” So simple. And it subtly reminds me of Harry Potter.
