Blog Tour and Giveaway: Addicted After All by Krista and Becca Ritchie

Hiiii, loves! It's been a long time no see, hasn't it? It feels really good to be somewhat back with this particular post and while I may still not blog regularly until Christmas, I'm willing to try and sneak in a little blogging in my schedule if it allows so. I hope you've all been up to no good ;) though really, I hope you're all doing great! I've missed you guys a ton! *hugs you all tightly*

Anyhooow, today's post is one that I've been anticipating since summer and it was super fun to create. Basically, I drew some pictures for the Addicted cast to guess. Nevermind the quality of those drawings; you know how it is with pictionary, so they're going to be "realistic", for the sake of not finding a better word lol. I hope you can play along as well by guessing these pictures as you follow the post, and have a fun time in general when reading this crazy thing :) Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit all the other lovely blogs on the tour and enter the giveaway below! x

Siiri: Hey guys! It’s been so long since we last saw each other. I hope you’ve all been good!
Loren: *plops on a couch next to Lily* seeing as how Lil and I are the only two here right now *flashes dry smile*
Lily: *gapes and punches his arm lightly* Don’t be mean.
Loren: Love, that was a fact. *looks towards staircase* RAISIN!! Get your wrinkled asses down here! *looks back to Lily* That was mean.
Ryke: *yells from upstairs* Give us a fucking second!
Lily: *whispers to Lo* Connor and Rose are late. *eyes widen with a smile* This is a first, isn’t it?
Loren: *thinks about it* Jesus Christ. You’re right. *scans the room* Where are they?
Rose: *enters the living room, wearing a Calloway Couture black dress* We’re here.
Connor: *has his hand placed on the small of Rose’s back. They settle on the loveseat*
Lily: *squints at them* Where’d you go?
Rose: *flips her hair* It doesn’t matter. Let’s start this.
Loren: We’re missing—
Ryke: We’re fucking ready *now entering the room with Daisy; he carries two large travel backpacks and tosses them on the floor* Our flight is in four fucking hours, so we need to make this quick, or else we have to bail early.
Daisy: I think we can win this game before Costa Rica *wags her eyebrows at Ryke as she plops on the chair*
Ryke: We’ll see, Calloway *picks her up and places her on his lap as he sits down*
Siiri: Ok, so last time you were here, you got to play the Newlywed Game and today you get to put your competitive sides *eyes Rose and Connor* on the table and show us what you’ve got since we’re playing Pictionary. I hope you’re fast and came prepared *cracks knuckles* because I ain’t a casual artist. This is business, ladies and gents.
Rose: *straightens up next to Connor* I’m always prepared.
Loren: That’s exactly why you have a creature growing in your ice-cold womb.
Rose: *shoots him a piercing glare*
Siiri: Alright, let’s start. First one.

Lily: Line!
Connor: *tries hard to hold back a grin* It’s most likely more complicated than a geometric shape, Lily.
Lily: *blushes* Oh. Not a line!
Loren: *kisses her temple*

Rose: Hangman. Easy.
*sources say incorrect*
Rose: *glares* What?
Connor: We’re not playing Hangman, Rose. Clearly, this is pictionary.
Rose: I’m this close *pinches her fingers together* to slapping you, Richard.
Connor: *gaze trails her body* Do it, darling, you’ll be supine afterwards.
Rose: *inhales sharply, slightly aroused*
Connor: Remember we’re teammates here, not rivals.
Rose: Fine.
Ryke: a fucking tent.
*sources say incorrect*
Connor: maybe rephrase it to,“a tent that I’ve fucked in.“
Ryke: Shut the fuck up, Cobalt.
Connor: Impossible.
Daisy: How is this not a tent?
Ryke: Thats what I’m fucking saying *pulls her closer to his chest (she’s still on his lap)*
Lily: *squints hard and begins to perk up like she may know this answer. She taps Lo’s thigh repeatedly*
Lily: Deathly Hallows!
Loren: *smiles* Good job, love.
*sources say correct*
Rose: *frowns and scrutnizes the picture up close* No.
Loren: You lost, Queen Rose, deal with it.
Rose: *crosses her arms* this doesn’t mean we lost the game.
Ryke: Is no one going to explain what the fuck a deathly hallow is?
Lily: Harry Potter—
Ryke: Never mind. I don’t want to know.

Lily & Loren: 1, Connor & Rose: 0, Ryke & Daisy: 0
Complete picture of the Deathly Hallows at the end of the post.

Siiri: Good job! That was the most excellent, really *smiles wickedly* Ok, so next one. *starts drawing*
Daisy: a rainbow unicorn!
Ryke: All I see is fucking grass.
Connor: And to no one’s surprise those are both incorrect.
*sources say incorrect*
Connor: And I’m always right.
Ryke: *glowers* This is why I need a week long vacation.
Connor: You’re going to Costa Rica because of me? I’m flattered.
Rose: *interjects, her voice oddly tight* Let’s just continue.
Loren: jail.
*everyone is tensely quiet*
Loren: And yes, I’ve been there. Jesus Christ. This is a game, be happy. *pinches Lily’s cheeks*
Lily: I’m just concentrating. *squints at the picture really hard and tugs the flaps of her Wampa cap over her ears*
Rose: *suddenly springs from the couch* We’re pausing the game. Do not play without me *points a threatening finger at Loren and Lily*
Loren: Are you going to go file your claws?
Rose: *darts out of the living room*
Connor: *his grin vanishing, stands and leaves after her*
Daisy: I heard her puking this morning.
Loren: *cringes* that’s too much information.
Lily: If I had morning sickness would you—
Loren: no, love *hugs her closer* I just don’t like imaginging Malificent upchucking. It’s like... *grimaces* her horns being cut off or something.
Daisy: *smiles* that’s kind of sweet, you know?
Loren: *glares and mockingly tilts his head at his brother* Ryke, tell your girlfriend to stop complimenting me. I don’t like it.
Ryke: *flips Lo off*
Loren: I love you too, bro.
*ten minutes pass before Connor & Rose return to the living room*
Rose: a bird cage.
*sources say incorrect*
Rose: *lets out a small growl in frustration*
Connor: Be patient, the answer will come. *wraps an arm around her shoulders*
Rose: It might be easier if my teammate pulled his own weight.
Connor: I won’t guess things that I know are wrong.
Rose: *shoots a peircing glare at him* You’re ego is making me ill.
Connor: If that was the truth, you’d be sick every single day, darling.
Rose: *raises chin and focuses on the picture*
Lily: a bird house!
*sources say incorrect*
Loren: Nice try, Lil.
Ryke: What the fuck am I looking at?
Loren: Rose vomitting out of a tower and loving it.
Rose: *gives him a murderous glare.
Loren: What? You’re in a princess tower. You’re royalty.
Daisy: *gasps* Flynn Ryder! *smiles brightly* Am I right?
*sources say correct*

Lily & Loren: 1, Connor & Rose: 0, Ryke & Daisy: 1

Siiri: Ok, wow, that was a tough one! I’m surprised you got it, but then again *grins at Daisy* not really! *laughs* Ok, ok. Next.
Rose: we’re losing, Richard.
Connor: I’m well aware of the score. *fingers to his jaw as he scrutnizes the shape*
Lily: a worm!
Loren: or an amoeba. Hey, it’s Connor Cobalt.
Connor: *tries to restrain a grin*
*sources say incorrect to all guesses so far*
Connor: an atom
*sources say correct*
Connor: *turns to Rose* And what exactly were you saying about pulling my weight? *smiles at her, but she’s pale again. His smile fades quickly*
Rose: excuse me *stands quickly and leaves*
Connor: *rises and exits with her*

Lily & Loren: 1, Connor & Rose: 1, Ryke & Daisy: 1 
Complete picture of an Atom at the end of the post.

Lily: She never said we couldn’t start without her this time.
Daisy: *smiles deviously* I like the way you think, sis.
Loren: Until someone gets ripped to shreds by your older sister’s talons.
Ryke: *brows rise* Are you really suggesting we fucking wait?
Loren: No way. She shouldn’t even be playing right now. You know when we were younger Rose got Daisy, Lily, and me chicken pox because she had to go to Poppy’s birthday party, infected.
Lily: *nods repeatedly* she can’t miss anything important.
Daisy: *frowns* That’s how I got chicken pox?
Loren: Yeah, you were four. Blame Queen Rose. She’s a death-carrier. She’ll spread contagions if it means conversing with her subjects. She would’ve killed an entire kingdom if she ruled during the Bubonic Plague
Lily: Rose wouldn’t want to live back then. Everyone smelled bad. *crinkles her nose*
Siiri: *glances at where Rose and Connor left* Uh. I hate to do this, but we’re on a tight schedule here so we should probably do as Lily suggested and continue. Um. Ok, so we’re tied. Obviously. So we need a tie breaker and I have a good one! *grins huge* *starts drawing*
Lily: birth control! *eyes widen, turns bright-red* I, uh... I didn’t say that!
Loren: *surprise kisses Lily right on the lips and hugs her close*
Daisy: *smiles mescheviously* a condom.
Lily: *breaks from the kiss with way less embarassment*
Ryke: *brows furrow* that actually could be a fucking condom.
*sources say incorrect*
Ryke: that’s a urinal
Loren: Oh shit. He’s right.
*sources say incorrect*
Ryke & Loren: what? *both of them lean in closer to look at the picture*
Daisy: *whispers to Lily* brotherly love *makes a heart symbol with her hands*
Loren: that’s a normal toilet.
*sources say incorrect*
Ryke: what the fuck?
Lily: I feel like we’re staring at an optical illusion *turns her head to the side*
Daisy: Oooh, do we need to do a handstand? *mock gasps* it’s upside down!
Ryke: *messes her hair, a smile pulling his lips*
Loren: Okay, if we can’t win this without Rose and Connor here, this is going to be pathetic.
Ryke: all I see is a toilet, man.
Daisy: a portal to Narnia.
*sources say incorrect*
Lily: *scrunches her brows* a gold fish’s home?
*sources say incorrect*
Loren: *smiles* you mean BJ’s home after he died?
Ryke: *gives them both a weird look* you had a goldfish named BJ?
Lily: he was cool. Don’t judge him because of his name.
Loren: And don’t judge the owner who gave him his name either, bro.
Ryke: *raising his hands in defense* I didn’t fucking say a thing.

Loren: it’s all blue? A blue toilet room?
Lily: *smacks his leg repeatedly like the answer is hitting her*
*heels click along the floorboards*
Rose: *enters, holding hands with Connor. He carries a water bottle for Rose. She stops midway, eyes narrowed at the pictionary board*
Lily: The Blue Room!
*sources say correct*
Rose: *huffs* You cheated.
Lily: *her shoulders fall*
Loren: Do you even know what The Blue Room is?
Rose: *purses her lips*
Loren: that’s what I thought. It’s a bar downtown.
Lily: *growing smile* everything is blue.
Ryke: I fucking hate that place. It gives me a fucking migraine.
Loren: And their alochol selection is shit.
Ryke: *shoots him a glare* You better—
Loren: pre-sobriety me. Don’t get your panties twisted.
Ryke: Fucking hilarious *checks his watch* Daisy and I have to head to the airport soon. *nods to Lily* Congrats, Calloway. I didn’t even think of that.
Lily: *smiles* Thanks, Ryke.
Siiri: Ok, and that’s a wrap! Your publicist said you’re in a hurry, so not going to hold you here any longer. I’m so glad you guys could make it today! *smiles* I hope you had fun and can’t wait to see you again sometime! *waves*
Connor: thanks for having us, Siiri *winks* I’m ordering lunch from downtown. Who wants what?

About the book

Title: Addicted After All (Addicted #3)
Authors: Krista & Becca Ritchie
Published: October 31st, 2014
Add it: Goodreads
Amazon: Purchase links not available until October 31st

Two addicts. One epic love story.

Prepare for the worst.

That’s what Lily and Lo try to do when Jonathan Hale schedules an “important” meeting. The problem: after being swept into the public eye and battling their addictions, they’re not sure what the worst is anymore.

In a sea of many changes—including Ryke & Daisy living with them—Lily realizes that the best part of her fluctuating hormones might just be the worst.

Her sex drive is out of control.

Loren knows that she’s insatiable, but he’s not giving up on her. She’s too much a part of him. And as he carries more and more responsibility, some of the people that he loves doubt his resolve.

In the conclusion to their love story, Lily & Lo stand side-by-side to fight, one last time, for their happily ever after.


Due to the 2-year gap between Addicted for Now (Addicted #2) and Addicted After All (Addicted #3), you must read Thrive (Addicted #2.5) or the Calloway Sisters spin-off series before reading Addicted After All.

  1. Hahaha! I <3 this post! I won't say that you should quit your day job and become a full-time artist, Siiri, but this was one of the best tour stops I've seen in a looong while. Well done! And, is that blue thing a toilet?? Ryke sure does have a potty mouth on him, doesn't he? ;) Welcome back to the blogopshere, and thanks for sharing this, you totally made my day!

  2. LOL!! Wow, that was fun! Gosh, how I miss the banter with these 6! "or an amoeba. Hey, it’s Connor Cobalt" LMAO! OMG Siiri!!!!!!! Connor winked at you! He winked! I would have died!!!

  3. Aw, this is such a cute and fun post, Sirii! You have made me want to get back to this awesomesauce series. I remember I'm the cheerleader for this series along with you of course. And yes, we're all waiting for your and Connor's wedding invitation. I adore this post and really enjoyed reading it! You've doen a fantastic job with it. Fabulous stuff!

    Sarika @ The Readdicts


    I'll admit though, I did not even THINK of Flynn for the other picture. But I maintain that's because you obviously cheated and drew an obscure picture just to confuse me. Just you wait, woman. I SHALL HAVE MY REVEEEEENNNGEEE

  5. This was totally one of my favourite posts out of the tour. Krista and becca are brilliant and funny as always and your artistic skills are a force to be reckoned with Siiri. :P Connor and Ryke interaction was one of my fav not to mention all the couples were so adorable that I really need AAA like right now. Thank you for this!

  6. ASDFGHJKOIHGF THIS POST!!!!!!! I am dead. The awesomeness of this game was too much to handle. I was laughing so hard. Omg. LILY <333 From the very first line (heh see what I did there ;) ) to the last!! Poor Rose, I hope her morning sickness settles down some. But dude, Connor totally winked at you! Thanks for sharing, Siiri !!! I was able to guess the first two (Connor was too quick with the last one haha). But the last drawing was my favorite, hands down. "All I see is a toliet, man" BAHAHAHAHA *dies again*


  8. This was such a great idea Siiri! Loved reading their interactions!

  9. "Ryke: What the fuck am I looking at?"

    *dies* I had much the same reaction to some of those pictures!!! As artistically inclined as I am, I fail miserably at Pictionary. Never be my partner Siiri, I can't get it together enough to draw anything recognizable when I'm being timed!!! This was such a fun post, I needed the smile today, so thank you!

  10. This is so awesome and creative, i loved it. :)

  11. These authors always make the best blog posts! You know what else I love - it's so clear how well they know and LOVE these characters they've created. They're also tremendous to their fans. It makes me desperately want to meet and care for these 6 too. I'm basically only holding off right now because I want to be able to devote myself to them, but I'm not sure a "perfect" time will ever come, so I'm just going to have to go for it. Thanks for taking the time to put this up in your busy life, dear!

  12. Great Series, love all the characters but Lily and Lo are my absolute favourite. They are swoon worthy!! Friday cant come soon enough

  13. Looks like my comment from earlier today disappeared hmm...
    Anyways, You have no idea how much I love this post Sirri! Kudos for you for thinking of this awesome idea of Pictionary! Also, can we all just take a moment to admire Lilo and Coballoway? They were at full force and I loved it so much!!!

  14. Hahahahahaha... This was so awesome!!
    I will have to read this series soon.

  15. That was hilarious, what fun. Yep, I so need to read this series. I need a time machine !

  16. OMG Siiri that was awesome hahahaha never laughed so hard LMAO so fun and hilarious. made me miss them more!! great job *two thumbs up - Lanie

  17. I didn't get out to their signing after all, Siiri! *sobs* I was dead on my feet when it rolled around and just couldn't get out there. I seriously need to pick this up. I plan on taking some time off soon so maybe I'll do a marathon read of the series then. Great post and thanks for the giveaway! :)

  18. Siiri, this has got to be the BEST tour stop I've read! Fun fact: last exam season, I read about...50/60% of Addicted To You (because it was the perfect stress reliever) and then I forgot to finish it...FORGOT. That's insane. But you and Lily both ADORE this series and I'm starting to think that maybe I should find some time to dive back in! I love the pictionary idea, had me stumped at the atom, which honestly should be the easiest but I think my mind just repels science xD

  19. *sobs*
    Bloglovin didn't show me your post yesterday, so I missed it!
    But anyways, this was SO freaking perfect, Siiri. I had an absolute blast laughing at the things these kids say. Lo & Lil are still as cute as ever and damn, Ryke! <3 <3 <3 I'm a little jealous of Daisy (OK not a little, I'm completely jealous!! I'd like to push her off a cliff and climb Ryke like a monkey - Please ignore that I just said that *_* Good thing I uses a pseudonym online!!)! Ha and I love how Rose and Connor were losing and they got all pissed off, especially Rose! Haha! :D
    Great post!! :)
    I can't believe AAA is coming out in a few days! I'm sad and really excited at the same time.

  20. Haha...this post had me in a fit of giggles. I so need to read this series. I so wished I continued them when I finished Addicted to You. I know I keep on saying I would, I really must have one week to read all of them and Ryke! Great post! Siiri as always, you have my convinced! :D

  21. Love this! Totally made me smile :) And of course Ryke and Daisy saw a memories ;-)

  22. Oh Siiri, I love it so much! So glad to see you back here and blogging at least for a special post here and there. This really showed their character personalities, definitely with how strong they all are. I loved how Rose and Connor slipped in all classy like hehe. Great feature Siiri!

  23. ROLF! Once again you've got me in stitches girl. This was all kinds of awesome. They're good though I mean I knew them but still yeah. Thank you so much for sharing this with us and you have no idea how happy I'm to see you back again. Great post, hon :)

  24. Siiri I love this post, I remember last time when you had these characters on the blog and they were such a riot! I also adore your drawings, I of course probably wouldn't have guessed any of them, but then maybe if I had a really great partner, I maybe really good! I bet you can't wait until Friday for the release of Addicted After All, these characters are too much fun to miss out on!

  25. Haha, that was such a fun post! I loved reading all the banter and interactions they had with each other. Their personalities really did shine (can I say I don't even know any of them as I haven't yet read the books but I'm loving Connor already? YIPPEE!).

    Faye at The Social Potato

  26. What a clever, fun post! Awesome job, Siiri!

  27. This post is ADORABLE. I haven't even met these characters and I'm all super smiley and happy. It's clear I need to read this series ASAP. I absolutely adore their dynamic, and all the cute couple-y moments. Thanks so much for sharing, Siiri!

  28. Hahahahaha this post is hilarious and quite clever XD I miss you, hon!! Welcome back to blogging :D
