EXCERPT:

 

Satisfied with my results, I settled on the bed, all snug and dry in my robe. Pressing a stack of clean washcloths to my mouth to muffle the laughter, I heard the water turn off. After a few seconds’ hesitation, he called from inside the bathroom.

 

“Hey. Where are all the towels?”

 

I didn’t answer, just laughed some more and smothered my giggles.

 

The slap of his wet feet on the bare floor sounded as he crossed the bathroom toward the door. He poked his dripping head out of the doorway. “What did you do?” His dark eyebrow arched, hair soaked and plastered to his forehead. A puddle quickly formed around his feet.

 

I held up one of the tiny washcloths. “You want this, don’t you? The hate is swelling in you now.”

 

His mouth quirked. “Something’s swelling, but it isn’t hate.” He pushed the hair away from his forehead and cleared the water that had dripped into his eyes. “Somehow I thought getting away with that was too easy.”

 

I smirked. “You should know me better by now. As for drying off…you could always use your dirty underpants.”

 

“Underpants? What am I, five?” He clenched his jaw and then grinned. “Don’t underestimate the power of the dark side, young Jedi.”

 

I rolled my eyes. “So you’re going to try to one-up me? So predictable. I’m shaking in my boots.”

 

His dark eyes gleamed as he came closer. Rivulets of water had collected on his tasty abs. It was fascinating to behold.

 

“And you should know me better, too.” He grinned evilly. “I don’t one-up. I one-hundred-up.” Then he shook his head inches from my face. Droplets of water sprayed everywhere. I let out a screech and pulled back. “You are looking too dry over there, little girl. Let me help you with that.”

 

And he promptly pinned me, dripping wet, to the bed and started rubbing his drenched face in mine. “You’re gonna soak the bed!” I screeched.

 

“Collateral damage,” he replied. He reached down and pulled the belt on my robe, opening it. Then he shifted, sandwiching me between his wet body and the bed.

I squirmed and wiggled, and he only seemed to like it more. He shook his head again.

 

My hand smacked his hard chest. “You’re such a boy.”

 

He grinned. “I’m all boy,” he said, pressing his erection against me.

 

“I won’t take this lying down,” I muttered.

 

“You don’t have to take it lying down.” He laughed. “There’s always up against the door or the shower wall. Or you can take it bent over the back of the couch or a dozen other different ways. Whatever way you take it…you are taking it.”

"Ryan continues her streak of amazingly accessible and authentic romantic fiction. Grip is a bold and unapologetic look at interracial romance and does not shy away from any of the ideals and prejudices that most of us are too polite to acknowledge - head on- amidst one of the sexiest, and provocative true love romances Ryan has penned to date. Break out the fans folks, Grip is aptly titled and sure to make you need a grip! -- Sheena, Smexy Books

 

 

 

FLOW, The GRIP PrequelFLOW, The GRIP Prequel by Kennedy Ryan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Marlon AKA Grip, meeting Bristol is full of laughter and tears. Right out of the gate, this prequel for the upcoming story in Grip is moving. Bristol comes to visit her brother, and Grip's best friend in California while she is on spring break.

Bristol wants to repair things with her brother. Since his best friend is interesting and makes her think, they get to know one another. The chemistry between these two - it's off the charts!

I really loved these characters in the previous Soul series books. I am thrilled to see their story come alive. I enjoyed reading it and eagerly devoured each page. This book is the prequel and I am really excited to read the next book!

Blurb:

 

In 8 years, Marlon James will be one of the brightest rising stars in the music industry. Bristol Gray will be his tough, no-nonsense manager. But when they first meet, she’s a college student finding her way in the world, and he’s an artist determined to make his way in it. From completely different worlds, all the things that should separate them only draw them closer. It’s a beautiful beginning, but where will the story end?

 

FLOW is the prequel chronicling the week of magical days and nights

that will haunt Grip & Bristol for years to come.

 

GRIP is the full-length conclusion of their story available March 2 here: http://kennedyryanwrites.com/grip/

Blurb:

 

Resisting an irresistible force wears you down and turns you out. I know. I’ve been doing it for years. I may not have a musical gift of my own, but I’ve got a nose for talent and an eye for the extraordinary. And Marlon James – Grip to his fans – is nothing short of extraordinary. Years ago, we strung together a few magical nights, but I keep those memories in a locked drawer and I’ve thrown away the key. All that’s left is friendship and work. He’s on the verge of unimaginable fame, all his dreams poised to come true. I manage his career, but I can’t seem to manage my heart. It’s wild, reckless, disobedient. And it remembers all the things I want to forget.

⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

A beautiful story that's so much more than a romance…a story about all the different kinds of love and loyalty.  I don't know why I waited so long to read this book.  I ended up adding narration to this for a discounted price and I don't regret it one bit.  Rob Shapiro was amazing as a narrator.  He is a new fav for me. 

Yes, it made me cry, but most of it was the good kind of crying.  Everything about this book was amazing…as my ratings breakdown says.  I wholeheartedly recommend this book.

⇝Sex Factor⇜ No, there isn't any, really.
