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.

***Authors' Note***
It's possible to only read the Calloway Sisters spin-off series without reading the Addicted series, but you MUST read Fuel the Fire (Calloway Sisters #3) before reading Long Way Down (Calloway Sisters #4).

5 Ryke Fucking Meadows Stars ***Spoiler Free***

So this bad boy gets all the stars.

And I’m gonna hug it close.

Like this:

Because it was good.

But mainly because it actually made this cold-hearted little shrew shed a tear *gasp.*

It’s an almost-Christmas miracle anomaly, I tell you.

Seriously though, I think the rugged and dry terrain that is my cheek might experience a mudslide as a result of this never before seen influx of sudden moisture.

But I digress.

My favorite foul mouthed fucking character in this book?

Ryke, Ryke, Ryke.

Cause I mean, really, how do I love thee?

Let me counts the ways…

Oh man. Le fucking swoon.

Muscles…danger…

But most of all?

LOYALTY

Loyalty is something that I personally value above pretty much all else.

And that’s what I think I love most about this entire series.

The six main characters – Connor, Rose, Ryke, Daisy, Lo and Lily – they are all LOYAL to each other.

ALWAYS.

“‘Let’s make a pact. If anyone hassles our sisters tonight, we confront them and handle it with necessary means…’

She has a knife strapped to her thigh.

‘What, you planning on shanking someone tonight?’

‘I plan on being resourceful and cautious…I also have a taser.'”

Even when they are insulting each other and constantly throwing the middle finger – they have each others’ backs.

As couples, as friends, as brothers, as sisters, as FAMILY.

And I just LOVE it.

Especially Ryke.

His loyalty to Daisy.

“Wherever you go, I’ll go.”

description

His loyalty to Lo and Lo’s loyalty to him.

“I miss my brother and if you won’t fight for the thing that makes you happy, then I’m going to fight for you.”

And to Connor.

description

And to ALL of them.

All.

The.

Fucking.

Time.

“The relationships that take the most effort and time become the mightiest in the end.”

And boy are they ever mighty.

These characters and this series have a very special place in my heart now. And even though I am SO sad the series is over…they will always live on my kindle.

And I will re-read the fuck out of them forever.
