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**
Just a bit of randomness from me, but is it just my deluded mind or does the cover model actually look like Emma Watson?

Character Interview

1) How did the two of you meet? And your first impressions of each other?
Lo: At a play date. Not in a sandbox, unfortunately. We skipped that cliché and met at a country club salad bar.

Lily: We were six.

Lo: Yeah, but I didn’t really notice you until a school play of Wizard of Oz. You were a fantastic tree. You really made those twigs look real.

Lily: Those were my actual arms.

Lo: *grinning* I know.

Lily: First impression of Lo? He didn’t run away from me like I had cooties, so that was nice.

Lo: Ditto.
2) Were there times when you felt helpless to your addictions?
Lo: Nope.

Lily: *cringes* We don’t like to talk about it.
3) Were there times when you were terrified of each other's addictions and how they bound themselves to the other?
Lo: *slouches in chair* Well you certainly can’t drink and have sex at the same time, so one of us is going to lose, aren’t we? *turns to Lily with a bitter smile* You got this one, love.

Lily: Uh…I think you could probably figure out how to drink and screw at the same time. *tilts her head in thought* Yeah, that’s doable, right?

Lo: Should we consult Kama Sutra or should we invent our own—call it the Whisky Tango.

Lily: That sounds ridiculous, and I think we’ve properly avoided this question.
4) Most hilarious moment together?
Lo: I have one. *straightens up and turns to Lily* The time you slept with Chewbacca at Comic-Con.

Lily: Says the guy who got roofied by Captain America.

Lo: *laughs* Good times.
5) Where do you imagine your lives would be without each other?
Lo: *wraps his arm around the back of Lily’s chair* It’s impossible to see a future without a person that you’ve been with all your life.

Lily: I can’t imagine where we’d be…who I’d be at all.

Lo: *clears his throat* Well, thanks for the interview. It’s been enlightening.

Lily: Be nice.

Lo: *grins at her* Aren’t I always, love? *kisses her cheek*

Lily: *pushes him off and flushes bright red* Thanks, we gotta go. *rushes out of the room, tugging Lo’s shirt and dragging him behind her*
I don't know about you, but to me that was absolutely adorable. It's probably one of the many charms of a cute couple . . .
