Addicted To You
Authors: Krista & Becca Ritchie
Release Date: June 13, 2013
No one would suspect shy Lily Calloway’s biggest secret. While everyone is dancing at college bars, Lily stays in the bathroom. To get laid. Her compulsion leads her to one-night stands, steamy hookups and events she shamefully regrets. The only person who knows her secret happens to have one of his own.
Loren Hale’s best friend is his bottle of bourbon. Lily comes at a close second. For three years, they’ve pretended to be in a real relationship, hiding their addictions from their families. They’ve mastered the art of concealing flasks and random guys that filter in and out of their apartment.
But when they go on a family boat trip, surrounded by open seas and limited male bodies in sight, Lily’s confronted with a big fear. Only one guy onboard can fill her addiction, and she’s sworn off going there with Loren Hale ever again.
Now the only person who can truly help her can barely help himself.
**This is a New Adult book recommended for readers 18 and up**
Dream Cast: Tim Borrmann
I'm going to cheat with Lo and only Lo. We can't pick an actor that perfectly resembles the main male character. Though, if we were held at gunpoint and had to choose, we would end up picking Bill Skarsgard. He's the Swedish actor who starred in Netflix's Hemlock Grove and younger brother to Alexander Skarsgard (Erik from True Blood). But he doesn't look exactly like Lo in photographs, he's just a very good actor.
So we're cheating and picking a model, Tim Bormann. He's got the right cheek bones and the hair and generally looks like Loren Hale. Don't know if he can act or not, but…when you're dreaming it, obviously it doesn't matter ;)
Dream Cast: Imogen Poots
The actress is normally sporting blonde hair, but she went darker for her role in Greetings from Tim Buckley. Honestly, she looked exactly how we pictured Lily. Very skinny with shorter brown hair. Imogen Poots is also a fantastic actress with a killer name. We loved her in Fright Night, so she'd top our dream cast for Lily!
Dream Cast: Daniel Sharman
We're big television buffs, and Teen Wolf happens to be our summer guilty pleasure. It's scripted and acted so well that I wouldn't even necessarily call it guilty at all. Daniel Sharman plays one of the wolves, and he's brilliant. He looks like Connor: tall with wavy hair. And he seems like he'd be able to play a pretentious honor student well.
Dream Cast: Astrid Bergès-Frisbey
Rose is Lily's older sister, and she's the fiercest female in the book. She's also very confident in her own skin and with her beliefs and ideals. So when looking for an actress to cast, you really have to find someone that has this strong femininity. And Astrid Bergès-Frisbey exudes it. It also doesn't hurt that Rose has yellow-green cat-colored eyes, and Astrid really has the closest eye color. No contacts needed in this make-believe movie!
Dream Cast: Christian Cooke
Ryke is a more mysterious character in the book. He's described as having a lean runner's build with a kind of scruffy unshaven face. We noticed Christian Cooke first when we started watching Echo Beach, a short-lived British show. Since then he's starred in one of my favorite movies—Cemetery Junction. He's an amazing actor that can pull off the mystery and rough exterior well. Plus, he looks like Ryke.
