Review: Thrive by Krista & Becca Ritchie

Addicted, #2.5
Authors: Krista & Becca Ritchie
Publication Date: July 17, 2014
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆


Two years will change them forever.

When rumors spread like wildfire—like having three-ways with her boyfriend’s rock climbing brother—Lily Calloway spirals into a dark place. Her bedroom. Loren Hale is more confident and determined to keep their sex life private, even from their friends, and he helps Lily in the only way he knows how. But how much love is too much?

Their lives are filmed, watched, and criticized. And through it all, Lily and Loren have to face enemies they never thought they’d see, demons they don’t know if they should bury, and setbacks they didn’t think they’d meet. Not this soon.

And one rumor could be too much for them to handle. It will test their greatest limitations, and if they don’t hold onto each other, someone is going to drown.

A full-length New Adult Romance that bridges the gap between the second and third books. Thrive must be read before Addicted After All if you have not read the Calloway Sisters spin-off series.

Thrive is probably my least favorite book in this series so far. Not because I didn’t like it, but because it overlapped the same time period in Kiss the Sky and Hothouse Flower. It felt a little redundant. I do have to give the authors credit, though. They didn’t just rewrite the other two books from Lily and Lo’s point of view, but added in new events and situations. There was so much more going on in their heads than I would have ever expected while reading the other two books. It was fun to see what they were up to behind the scenes. While Thrive wasn’t completely necessary to read (since it overlaps the first two Calloway Sisters books), it was a fun addition to the series and I do think readers will enjoy it.
