Ryke Meadows, meet Daisy Calloway ... she’s all grown up.Twenty-five-year-old Ryke Meadows knows he’s hard to love. With a billion-dollar inheritance, a track-star resume, and an alpha-male personality—he redefines the term likable asshole. But he’s not living to make friends. Or enemies. He just wants to free climb three of the toughest mountains in Yosemite without drama or interruption. And then he receives a distressed call from a girl in Paris—a girl that he has never been allowed to have. Daisy Calloway is eighteen. Finally. With her newfound independence, she can say goodbye to her overbearing mother and continue her modeling career. Next stop, Paris. Fashion Week begins with a bang, and Daisy uncovers the ugly reality of the industry. She wants to prove to her family that she can live on her own, but when everything spirals out of control, she turns to Ryke to keep her secrets. As Daisy struggles to make sense of this new world and her freedom, she pushes the limits and fearlessly rides the edge. Ryke knows there’s deep hurt beneath every impulsive action. He must keep up with Daisy, and if he lets her go, her favorite motto—“live as if you’ll die today”—may just come true.
***Authors' Note*** Hothouse Flower is a spin-off of the Addicted series. Kiss the Sky is required before reading, and we strongly recommend reading the Addicted series before this spin-off.

When I stumbled upon this series a few months back, I never would have thought it would have become one of my all time favorites. In the beginning of this book the authors state exactly why it is well at least to me, it is because it is more than just about romance, it is about family, struggles, relationships and surviving. Hothouse flower was my most anticipated read, I knew Ryke and Daisys story was going to be a doosey. And Krista & Becky did not disappoint. They gave us everything we loved in the first few books plus so much more. We get to feel the connection between Ryke and Daisy as they both struggle with their emotions and feelings for one another. Truth be told I didn't even expect it when Ryke finally gave him. I was like OMG YES YES YES! Only to moments later be in complete shock and fear. That is what this whole series has been like for me, a never ending emotional roller coaster. Nothing happens as you expect it to happen. Los relapses would never happen in any other series, but in real life?> You betcha they would be a real possibility. Addicted Series follows this family you each struggle with completely different problems , which we get to see bits and pieces of all of them in Hothouse flower. I love seeing Connor and Rose as well as Lo & Lily.I hope this pattern continues with the next two books, though I have no doubt they will be equally fantastic!

About the AuthorsKrista Ritchie has a clone...or someone who looks exactly like her. If she's not writing books with her twin sister, she's pouring over entertainment news and ingesting copious amounts of pop culture. She likes tennis, that thing called the TV, and beating Becca (her clone) on Sega Genesis. She created YA Book Exchange to combat her book buying addiction and started Nawanda Files, a YA Book Blog that features books into movies news, to share her love for all things bookish. Oh, and she does something called science. Whatever that is. Krista & Becca Ritchie write New Adult books that make you cringe, gasp, and go ooh-la-la. (If you do that sort of thing.) They are currently working on the spin-offs and final books in the Addicted series.
