HOTHOUSE FLOWER by Krista and Becca Ritchie is simply delicious. It picks up the story of Ryke Meadows and Daisy Calloway, which began in the ADDICTED series. In HOTHOUSE, Daisy just turned 18 but she’s been in love with Ryke since she was 15. The problem? He’s 7 years older. We’ve watched these two deny themselves and their off-the-charts attraction forever. And reading about this relationship finally happening was nothing short of watching a metaphysical collision. (See the synopsis below.)

Hothouse Flower CoverWhile there are some readers who thought Ryke was unlikeable before this book, I was NEVER one of them. That boy always had my number. He’s gorgeous, rough around the edges, and a total asshole. But an asshole in only the best way. Because he cares. About his brother and their friends. About their families. And, of course, about Daisy.

And Daisy is the beautiful model you actually adore. She’s nothing like the stereotypical ditzy snob who struts down the catwalk. She’s down-to-earth and sincere. Wild and untethered. She’s the kind of girl you’d follow off on a crazy adventure. Which is why Ryke can’t deny his love for her any longer.

As for steam? Holy hell, this book was hot. Like, throw me in the freezer, I need to cool off ASAP. Let me just say that Ryke is one creative lover. Sigh…

The Ritchie sisters are masters of characterization. ADDICTED was written from Lo and Lily’s points of views, KISS THE SKY from Connor and Rose’s pov, and HOTHOUSE FLOWER from Daisy and Ryke’s. And the Ritchies become these characters inside and out, evidence that Krista and Becca are serious stars on the rise. After each one of their novels, I’m crazy-out-of-my-mind, dying to get my hands on the next one because their stories are nothing short of addictive.

Even though HOTHOUSE is part of a much bigger series, it’s only the second in the Calloway Sisters spin-off, so if this sounds like your kind of book, read KISS THE SKY first. Both will light your panties on fire. And make some room on that “favorite book boyfriends” shelf. I have a feeling you’re going to be adding a few new hotties.

SYNOPSIS:

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.

I don’t know if I’ve ever been this excited for a book before. And I read a lot. HOTHOUSE FLOWER is the second in the Calloway Sisters series, so be sure to check out KISS THE SKY (which will rock your socks!) before you dig into this juicy morsel. But Ryke Meadows literally sizzles on the page, so you’ll want to read KTS quickly!
