Synopsis:

With a seven-year age difference, Ryke & Daisy have faced an uphill battle in the eyes of the world and their families. Known as the most adventurous, fast-paced couple — their next step has always been elusive to the rabid media.

Behind the scenes, heartbreaking troubles continue to test Ryke & Daisy’s resilience and shape their future together.

They promise:

To never slow down.
To never compromise who they are.
To never abandon their love for each other.

But preserving their happiness also means adding more risks. Ones that Connor Cobalt wouldn’t even take. As a professional free-solo climber, Ryke is no stranger to risk, but his next step with Daisy wagers more than just his health.

With their lives on the line, Ryke & Daisy head towards the vast, wild unknown in this epic final conclusion to the Addicted series.


With every book added to the Addicted/Calloway series, I find a new favorite. Long Way Down has definitely filled that spot. It was a very beautiful “conclusion” to Ryke and Daisy’s love story. (I say “conclusion” because it was supposed to be The End, but the authors gave us a really cool epilogue novel.)

I’ve loved Ryke’s character since the beginning of the series. His honest, blunt approach to life appealed to me. I also loved his swearing. (Hey, there was just something kind of sexy about it!) He felt more real to me than the other characters. Daisy hasn’t always been my favorite, but Long Way Down really endeared her to me. I felt like I actually got to know her in this book. Her raw connection with Ryke made more sense to me and I loved the playfulness they continued to share.

The story wasn’t all fun and games, though. There were some very intense moments that had me worried. The suspense was brutal at times. But those moments lead to really moving moments between the characters, so it was well worth it. Long Way Down was another amazing addition to this series.

I know I’ve said it with every review for this series, but I think New Adult lovers need to read this series. It’s simply amazing. I’ve grown so attached to the characters and I’m not looking forward to the series ending. So, go read it!
