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

Book Review:  

No. More. Us. AFTER THIS SENTENCE i had to get my hands on this. FAST! Lo and Lilly now have become my own addiction. If the first book was all about us knowing their vices and seeing them falling to it now it's all about getting them better and understanding that they're stronger together than with their addictions. It's perfection in 488 pages. 

Finally a lot of secrets are going to come out. A lot of family bonds will be made and many more will be broken. This is a rollercoaster of emotions!!! There is something happening at all times and every chapter is more exciting than the previous one. It's a vicious circle once you start reading this because then you can't stop!!! 
He’s a lifeline I cannot quantify or articulate. I depend on him more than any girl should depend on a boy, but he’s been the backbone of my life. 
Without him, I will fall.

As you know, someone will threaten to expose Lilly's secret... And i can tell you right now that not even in a million years you'll guess who it is. I both loved and hated this. I loved it because it added so much tension and anger to the story. But Hated it because it made Lilly relapse and Lo almost ruining his life. 

Lilly is the sex addict. Well, not anymore. After seeing Lo making a change in his life she decided to try to get better as well. But if Lo can take a pill to keep him from drinking, there's nothing that can keep Lilly from the male species... This is the big Problem. The Trust. Lilly doesn't trust herself to stop and Lo doesn't trust her as well. Slowly she will be denied what she craves and sex can only happen with a few limitations that her therapist wrote on a paper. Which will keep Lilly freaking out more and more. But, when her secrets gets on the tabloids the real problem begins... And then there will be relapses and a lot of crying and begging. And we also will finally understand where this addiction came from.  This book may be tough on Lilly but it's also the one where we see her more happy and actually enjoying life without the sex and constant worry, she also starts to form a real bond with her sisters and family. 

Lo is the alcohol addict. He's finally going to take his life and do something good with it. Like, helping Lilly and working in their relationship. I loved seeing him here than in the previous book. He's just so much more relaxed ever since he started not drinking but he definitely has many more battles ahead. This book is also not going to be easy on him. His relationship with his father was something i was really interested in seeing more of, and in here it developed and we actually saw his dad making an effort for his kids. His problems with his mother, which she will appear and we will get to meet the her (MAJOR BITCH). And last but not least, the development of his relationship with Ryke which will get so darn cute!!! LO is so much more approachable. Well, he still has something to say or to insult every second but in comparison with the first book he's actually trying now.... 
We are not each other’s first wants and needs. I am second to her. And she is second to me. I want that to change.
I think the six of us—we’re all strong. We’re each just a different kind of strong. But we all have a different kind of weak too. And I’m figuring out how to bottle my weakness to help them all.   
I’m not going to be the villain of my own story. That shit is done.

Connor and Rose getting a book of themselves? So in my to read NOW list. But in here their relationship could have been mentioned a bit more and i would loved so have seen more of them in general. Connor is still the same guy ever but we can see much more of himself and even Rose showed us a bit more of her personality.They are so cute together and the fights just make it all better ( even if it is over chess) !!! I guess i have to read their book...
If I marry Lily, I am easily going to be the worst son-in-law. 
And then I pale at the idea of Connor and Rose. 
Connor Cobalt cannot marry Lily’s sister. He’ll set unattainable standards that I will never be able to meet.
Ryke is the wall to support everyone and even with his wits and bad humor he just can't help but helping Lilly. I didn't liked him at all in the first book, but look at that!!! I kind of like him now! This book did a miracle. But he did an awesome job overall in here. I think i only started liking him more because of his relationship with Lo and the depths he would go to protect him...

All of this is a damn difficult rocky road with millions of little bumps... It's THAT Messy. But Krista and Becca did a wonderful job delivering us another brilliant book in this amazing series that spice up our rainy days. I seriously can´t get enough of Lilly, Lo, Rose, Ryke, Connor and the rest of the crew.
