Blog Tour & Giveaway: Long Way Down by Krista & Becca Ritchie

Hey, my darlings! I'm so glad to say that I'm slowly finding my reading (and blogging) mojo again and of course I couldn't pass up the opportunity to participate in what are my favorite blog tours ever to do. Addicted series, as most of you know, is my favorite series ever and I can't believe that it's coming to an end soon what with the last book and epilogue book left to publish. It's so bittersweet, but I'm very excited to see what kind of pain the twins are going to put us thourgh ✨(っˆ‿ˆ) ♥

Today I have a super fun and adorable post for you and of course it was inspired by Coballoway (are any of you actually surprised? Hah) (✿◠‿◠)  I hope you enjoy where Krista and Becca have taken Ryke and Daisy today, and yay for the rest of our favorites appearing as well! PS. You can follow the rest of the tour here for more fun posts and to increase your chances of winning.

Corbin Nery, the Calloway’s publicist, has asked to have a meeting in the living room with Lily, Loren, Daisy, Ryke, Connor, and Rose—despite some of them having other publicists. He wants their attention to go over what he should and should not say in the press concerning friendships, BROTPs, relationships, etc.

Ryke & Daisy have been told to sit apart after Ryke tossed her over his shoulder. Now separated across the room (Daisy on the couch beside Rose, and Ryke over on a chair by the TV)—Daisy tosses a crumpled piece of paper to Ryke.

RYKE: *unfurls the paper* *silently reads Daisy’s handwriting* There are 9 crossword spaces. Fill them with a word that you think will fit! Rose says that she plays this with Connor. I’ve started the first one.

RYKE: *almost smiles and begins to fill in the second box*
CORBIN NERY: I’ve had multiple media outlets ask about Ryke & Daisy taking a hiatus, a break-up, whatever you want to call it—let me tell them you’re still together with proof. Post more couple photos—
RYKE: Don’t tell us what to fucking do, Corbin. *crinkles paper and tosses it back to Daisy*
DAISY: *catches paper and unfurls it*

DAISY: *smiles more and starts counting the boxes for word #3*
LOREN: *to publicist* Just leave Raisin alone. No one cares—
LILY: Hey! I care. #TeamRaisy is important.
CORBIN NERY: It’s better if we have the public believing they’re together, not apart.
RYKE: If they don’t know we’re fucking together by now, they’re never going to believe it at any point. Just let it go. *watches Daisy start scribbling and when she looks up at him, he raises his brows at her*
CONNOR: Is there a reason I’m here? Other than to watch Ryke and Daisy toss paper across the room like they’re passing notes in grade school.
DAISY: Jealous? *tosses note to Ryke*
CONNOR: not even remotely.
RYKE: *unfurls note*

CORBIN NERY: last we talked, Connor, you wanted to be a part of the loop. Most of what we need to discuss involves those four *gestures to Ryke, Daisy, Lily, Lo*
ROSE: *sits straighter and listens closely*
CORBIN NERY: the friendship between Ryke and Lily should be separated more. As well as the friendship of Daisy to Lo.
RYKE: *pauses* what the fuck are they saying about Daisy and Lo?
LOREN: Yeah?
CORBIN NERY: nothing yet, but it’s good to cover all bases.
RYKE: *shakes his head* you can keep fucking talking, but I’m not listening to this bullshit. *tosses paper back to Daisy*
CORBIN NERY: You’ve made that clear, thank you. *continues talking about the separation between Ryke & Lily to avoid rumors.*
DAISY: *unfurls crumpled paper*

DAISY: *mouths to Ryke* Hey, sexy
RYKE: *tilts his head at her and points at her paper*
DAISY: *writes quickly and tosses it back to him*
RYKE: *unfurls paper*

RYKE: *readjusts in his seat some and looks up at her*
DAISY: *mouths to Ryke* What are you going to do to me?
RYKE: *begins writing again*
LOREN: that’s completely fucked up. Go take your shitty plans and re-plan because I’m not ignoring my brother’s girlfriend, and Lily’s not ignoring my brother—who can’t stop grinning at a piece of paper right now.
RYKE: *flips him off and scowls*
CORBIN NERY: Daisy’s mother specifically asked ways in which to strengthen Ryke & Daisy as a couple in the eyes of the public. This is what our entire team came up with.
CONNOR: If an entire team actually came up with this painfully basic strategy, there’s a competence issue within your publicity firm. Which isn’t surprising considering you’re the leader, but what can you do? You’re not me.
LOREN: Connor just called someone basic. Life made.
RYKE: *tosses paper to Daisy*
DAISY: *unfurls*

DAISY: *looks up at Ryke*
RYKE: *mouths* waterfall. Remember that, Calloway?
ROSE: *peeks over Daisy’s shoulder while she writes* You couldn’t think of more complicated words?
DAISY: *whispers* bear hugs may not be a complex word, but displays a complex emotion.
ROSE: At least your spelling is correct.
DAISY: *tosses the paper to ryke again*
RYKE: *unfurls*

RYKE: *runs a hand through his hair and then starts writing again*
CORBIN NERY: if it sounds so basic, then why can’t you at least entertain the idea? I had four people ask me if Daisy had found a new man yet.
RYKE: *flips corbin nery off*
CORBIN NERY: mature.
CONNOR: telling your clients to solve a crisis by ignoring each other is a little more juvenile….and inane.
LILY: How much longer? I thought we were all going to watch Lord of the Rings tonight.
RYKE: *tosses Daisy the paper* How many times are we going to try to marathon those?
LOREN: until you sit through all of them without taking a piss break to never return.
DAISY: *unfurls the paper*

DAISY: *can’t stop smiling and she looks up at Ryke*
RYKE: *raises his brows at her again*
DAISY: *quickly finishes writing in the last row of boxes*
CORBIN NERY: I’ll make a print-out of everything we discussed today and email it to you.
CONNOR: that sounds like an incredible waste of your time.
CORBIN NERY: it’s important that Ryke and Daisy understand what’s going on.
RYKE: we fucking got it. *a paper lands on his lap (Daisy threw it) and he unfurls it slowly to see the last row*

RYKE: *smiles and stands up immediately. He reaches Daisy on the couch and lifts her up by the waist and then kisses her. He breaks apart, only to whisper in her ear* I fucking love you too, Calloway.
DAISY: *smiles uncontrollably and kisses him back*

The end.


About the book

Title: Long Way Down (Calloway Sisters #4)
Authors: Krista & Becca Ritchie
Released: November 20th, 2015
Add it: Goodreads
*Purchase links not available until November 20th*

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. 

PS. The Calloway Sisters series can be read as a separate series, but it's even more enjoyable as a part of the Additced series. The full recommended reading order of both series can be seen on the the twins' tumblr page here.
