GUEST POST & GIVEAWAY: Hothouse Flower by Krista and Becca Ritchie

Follow the Hothouse Flower Promo Tour  Blog Schedule
Title: Hothouse Flower
Authors: Krista and Becca Ritchie
Series: Calloway Sisters #2 (Spin-off of the Addicted series)
Publication Date: March 28, 2014

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. 
New Adult Romance: recommended for readers 18+ for mature content
*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.

  4. Chocolaaatttteeee!!! Daisy is totally my kind of girl though I never say no to salmon or pizza so Connor (le sigh) and Lily can always hang out with me. Unfortunately for me, or Rose depending on how you see things, I am not a fan of sushi. X-MEN FIRST CLASS *high five, Lil!* Bhahaha I find it hilarious that Ryke picked Rocky. Of course Connor and Rose would say not just blue but a certain shade of blue :D THE IRON FEY :') Hehehe. Such a fun guest post, thanks so much for sharing, girls:)
