(Addicted to You by Krista and Becca Ritchie)
Hello readers! My name is Jenn and I am an addict. I run the Addicted Series Fan Page blog and my story revolves around my ultimate crush, Loren Hale, from the Addicted series (Addicted to You, Ricochet, and Addicted for Now) by Krista & Becca Ritchie.
In case you haven't read any of these books and are interested in what the series is about, here are the links to Goodreads:

Addicted After All (Coming Fall 2014)
If you haven't met Loren Hale yet, you are definitely missing out on some vicious hotness! Loren (or Lo, as he prefers to be called) is the epitome of a book boyfriend. He's affectionate, funny (who doesn't love a man who can make her laugh?), caring, lovable, loyal, and gorgeous (think Calvin Klein underwear model gorgeous!).
"On an attractiveness scale, he ranges right between a lead singer from a rock band you'd like to fuck and a runway model for Burberry and Calvin Klein."
"I sweep his features. Light brown hair, short on either side, full on top. Decently toned body hidden beneath a pair of faded Dockers and a black crew-neck tee. Cheekbones that cut like ice and eyes like liquid scotch. Loren Hale is an alcoholic beverage and he doesn't even know it. All six-foot-two of him fills the doorway."And wow, do I ever want to get drunk off of him! He's completely dedicated to the people he loves and he's got the patience of a monk! He waited six long years for the love of his life, never once taking advantage of her and her sex addiction, all the while perfecting his skills so that he can please her and fulfill her every need. Oh, and did I mention he loves his woman unconditionally? Yep. His undying love is what has me so captivated and enthralled!
"I love all of you"
"I'll always be yours. No distance or time apart will change that, Lily. You need to believe that."
"I'd rather be there than here. I'd rather be holding her in my arms, even if I have to tell her no by the end of it. She's the only good thing in my life."
"If the whole world says living without each other is what we should do, then this will be the last wrong I make."
"Lily turns to face me, and I am lost for a minute in her eyes. I suddenly realize that I'm scared of everything. Of losing the only girl I've ever loved."*sigh*
"I glance at Lo. The way he watches me with rapt attention sets my whole body aflame. I just want him on me. In me. Dear God. 'More,' I tell him."
"His closeness still makes my heart flutter like I've never been touched by him before."
"He's filling my every single need. He's taking care of me. Only Lo can satisfy every part of my all-consuming soul. He is truly my everything."
"'Just so you know,' he whispers, 'I'd love nothing more than to fill you again. I'd do it a million times a day if I could.'"
"And then he thrusts and holds inside of me. I buck and cry and claw at his back. My whole body pulsing, my heart thrumming--I am his."
"He pumps, and his amber eyes stay on mine, driving in and out. In and out. Deeper and deeper. I am lost to his scotch-colored irises. To the way he stares into me. No one has ever looked at me like this.Christ almighty! Is it hot in here or is it just me? *fans self* If he's enough to fully satisfy a sex addict...goodness me! Only one thought comes to mind...
I'm flying into the most blissfull feeling in the world.
I never want to come down."
*ahem* another round of Loren Hale, please? It's on me.
Oh, Lo, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. A 20 year old college student at University of Pennsylvania, heir to massive fortune, deep and emotional. Bad boy in a sense that he's been living a lie, pretending to be in a relationship for 3 years with his childhood best friend, and hiding his alcohol addiction from his family. But he's also quite possibly the hottest geek you've ever met!
Good Lord, have mercy!"I cannot stop staring. His abs are ripped. Six-pack definition. He was muscular before, but they were not sharp like that. His lean muscles curve and even have that sexy dip by his waist, as though leading my way to his cock."
He loves comics, goes to Comic Con and even dresses up as his favorite X-Men mutant, Hellion. He’s not so perfect that he seems fake. He is as real as they get! He's such a deeply flawed character who will go to the ends of the earth for his girl. He even makes the most difficult decision to better himself for the woman he loves.
"I love you, but I want to love you enough that I never choose alcohol over you. Not even for a moment. I want to be someone you deserve. Who helps you rather than enables you, and I can't begin to do that until I get help for myself."
His striking good looks is sure to catch your eye, and when you meet him, you will think he's the biggest asshole you've ever met. He's sarcastic and his mouth tends to get him in trouble. But get to know him better and he will surely steal your heart!!
"Our I love yous encompass years of heartache, of hurt, of laughter and pain. And every time we say the words, I feel the rush of our childhood. I couldn't imagine ever losing that."

What makes #TeamDane worth your vote?
With a dirty mouth like Dane, check out his sweet whispers:
“Last chance, Disney. Once I get a taste, I’m coming after you with everything I’ve got.”
“I will never kiss another man’s girl…but you’re not his, Laney. You’re not mine…yet. But you’re not his, either. So the way I see it, you’re kissable.”
“I won’t share you, Laney. Not your lips, not your thoughts, not your body, and especially not your heart. You don’t have to give it all to me just yet, but give me nothing if any of it belongs to him. Do you understand?”
“Baby,” I say as I drop a kiss her forehead, “you can plan our dates, tell me what to wear, run the radio,” I wink, “you can even name our kids one day…after Disney characters even. But in the bedroom, the hot tub, against the wall or basically anywhere I have you naked and wet…let me lead.”
Not only is this my plea for Dane, this was everyone’s plea for Dane. There are so many people that would drop everything for #TeamDane, and the support that Dane has is unbelievable. Who wouldn’t want to vote for a pretty face, along with great talents, a kind heart and a man that makes your panties melt?
Check out this super hot video made of ALL #Dane- trust me hold on to your chair!
