GRIP COVER SALE

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.

Excerpt

“Neither of us has been in a serious relationship in years.”

“That doesn’t mean anything.” I stand and slide my feet into the Jimmy Choos. “You haven’t exactly been waiting around, have you?”

“Damn right I haven’t been waiting around.” He doesn’t get up, but his firm hold on my wrist stops me from walking away. “I’m not Rhyson.”

I look down at him, frowning my confusion.

“What do you mean?”

“Remember when Kai put Rhyson in the friend zone?”
Of course I do. For a long time, my sister-in-law Kai denied the attraction between her and Rhyson.

“Yeah, so?”

“When Kai wasn’t checking for Rhys, I assumed he had to be sleeping with other girls.” Grip shrugs. “I mean, he and Kai were just friends. But, nope. He said he only wanted Kai and didn’t sleep with anyone else.”

“Then you’re right.” I tug at my wrist, but he holds on tight. “You’re definitely not Rhyson.”

“It was months, Bristol. She shut him out for months. Not years.”

“I’m not shutting you out.” I release a tired breath. “I’m living my life, and you’re living yours.”

“Right.” He nods and turns his mouth down at the corners. “So, if you won’t be with me, then I’ll fuck whoever the hell I want. If you have a problem with that, you know what to do about it.”

For a moment, our eyes tangle in the dimness. His words sink into my flesh like briars. Every word out of his mouth only proves that I’m right to get out of here. That I’m right not to give in. If I ever gave him a chance and he fucked around on me . . . I’ve seen what that looks like. It looks like a woman as strong as my mother reduced to pathetic, teary drunkenness.

“It’s none of my business.” I shift my eyes away from him and to the glittering city skyline just beyond the rooftop.

“It’s none of your business until you say it is.”

I force myself to look back.

“Don’t hold your breath, Grip.” I say my next words with deliberation. “I mean, it’s not like I’m sitting around saving it, either.”

He pulls me forward, and I press my hand to the hardness of his chest so I don’t fall into him. My knee supports me, pressed against his on the couch.

“Are you poking me?” One strong hand wraps around the back of my thigh, anger marking his expression. “Do you want to know if it bothers me when you fuck other guys?”

I just stare at him unblinkingly. He presses my leg, urging me forward until I’m fully on the couch, fully on him, one knee on either side of his legs, facing him. Straddling him.

“It makes me want to set the world on fire.” His words come softly, but the truth roars in his eyes. “To think of you with them.”

Author: Kennedy Ryan

Cover Designer: Maripili Studio

I’ll be there.

Through thick and thin.

Ride or die.

You can count on me.

The promises people make. The vows we take.

Assumptions of the heart.

Emotion tells us how we feel, but life…life has a way of plunging us in boiling water, burning away our illusions, testing our faith, trying our convictions.

Love floating is a butterfly, but love tested is an anchor.

For Grip and Bristol,

Love started at the top of the world

On a Ferris wheel under the stars

But when that love is tested, will they fly or fall?

ABOUT THE BOOK

People dream of a love that runs deep. So deep it feels like it’s always been with you, just waiting for the person who’ll own your heart and soul forever. So few ever find it, but for Rhyson Gray and Kai Pearson, happily ever after was only the beginning…

One of the biggest rock stars in the world and one of the brightest rising stars make a life together. Sometimes it’s glamour-filled days and blissed out nights, but it’s mostly staying true in the too-bright glare of the spotlight. It’s long stretches where the road is lonely and the work is hard. It’s living in a love that’s the safest place you know even while danger lurks at your door.

Book 3 of The Soul series is an emotionally-charged epic conclusion that had to be told and should not be missed for fans of this series and this couple!

Kristys Review (2)5 Star ReviewThis is simply a wonderful conclusion to a beautiful and beautifully written love story.  I adore Rhyson and Kia, yet I was worried that this book wouldn’t live up. I am excited to say I was completely and utterly wrong. It more than lived up….it exceeded.  This couple is just compelling, endearing and so completely romantic. This is what I read romance books for….this kind of story right here.

You really need to read the first two books for this one to work for you. Go ahead, do it….they are spectacular.  But this book just adds so much to their story.  Now that they are together, getting to experience them figuring out exactly what that means and how that works is a gorgeous ride.  They have issues, all couples do and their issues are handle so realistically and so beautifully. I literally couldn’t get enough. This will forever be one of my very favorite series and Rhyson Gray is one of my very favorite BBFs. He’s not perfect, he’s real and romantic and spectacular.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00002]

E X C E R P T

She slides onto me, a scalding clasp of flesh. That first thrust steals our breath at the same time, pounds our hearts together, twines our souls into one accord. Rising, falling, she milks me with tight, shallow pumps, her movements barely perceptible, but rippling through me. She captivates me with the tiniest undulation of her hips and takes me so deep I’m sure I’ll come out on the other side of her.

Her nails claw into my scalp, stirring a sharp pain into the bliss. She digs her fingers into my shoulders, gripping to hold on as I thrust into this tight, slick fantasy. I piston up and into her with enough force to break her, but she clutches me. Clings to me.

I don’t want to come. I want to fuck her infinitely. If I could seal us in this moment, preserve it in amber, I would. I’m not just inside her body. We inhabit each other’s souls. And this thing watering her eyes, clogging my throat, clamping my chest, it’s more than emotion, more than a feeling that could fail or flee. It’s the most precious thing I’ve ever had. If this is light, it’s blinding until she is all I see. If this is sound, it’s music. We are the verse, we are the chorus. And as we come together, her cries harmonizing with mine, this love resounds. It’s loud; so deafeningly loud that all I hear is her. And all she hears is me. We are our own refrain.

 Check out our 5star review of My Soul to Keep here

 Kristys Review (2)5 1_2 Star ReviewThis book was just everything I hoped and prayed and wanted and needed it to be, and then it was even better than that.  God, it was just so beautiful in both spirit and prose.  I seriously want every person I know to read these two books.  It’s hard for me to explain what makes this series so wonderful to me and the only thing I can come up with is these books have the most beautiful SOUL.  The story is honest, believable, fluid.  The ups and downs are heart affirming and heart wrenching and the characters are real, beautiful, flawed and perfect all at the same time. 
Rhyson is one of my favorite male characters of all time.  He is gorgeous both inside and out, talented, smart, funny and completely head over heals for Kia. He is also flawed, damaged and desperate to hold on to the love of his life.  Watching him come to terms with his actions and their consequences and seeing him work for forgiveness and redemption is simply a breathtaking journey. Kia is an amazing female lead.  Her strength and determination is inspiring, her heartbreak and  insecurities are humanizing and her love for Rhys is a thing of beauty, but watching her figure out how to not lose herself in the Rhyson’s shadow is what makes her character so much more captivating than I’m used to reading.These two characters are so multi-faceted, so complete, so extraordinary and yet so completely down to earth, that you can’t help but feel every emotion they feel.
Kennedy Ryan is simply an amazing writer.  She understand intrinsically how people interact, love, fight, play and connect.  Every emotion, every reaction and every consequence was real and believable.  There were times I wanted to scream at these characters, times I wanted to comfort them, times my heart broke for them and times I rejoiced for them. Every emotion was present and accounted for and Kennedy pulled them out of me even when I didn’t want her to.  I always feel some kind of emotion when I finish a series, sometimes happiness, sometimes sorrow because it’s over, sometimes frustration because I did like the way something was handled.  When I finished this series I felt like rejoicing, like my heart was full, sated, and joyous right down to my soul.

What people are saying about this unique music romance.

“The characters are so developed, the plot so realistic, the words painted so beautifully that you feel like you are a part of this story. I read the last few chapters so, so slowly because I didn’t want it to end.” — Adriana Lock, USA Today Bestselling Author

With this sequel, Ryan once again proves her strong presence in the romance writing world as she knows how to hook, captivate, and satisfy her loyal readers. — TeriLynReviews

“I’m speechless by the richness of this story. It will leave you breathless. The beauty, the love and the struggles are truly intoxicating and addicting.” — Shamika, Sticky Reads

“This story is an ode to what a real relationship should be like between two people, acceptance, brutal honesty at times, respect, forgiveness, but above all, love that surpasses all the mistakes we make along the way.” — Janett, The Pleasure of Reading

SYNOPSIS

RHYSON

She doesn’t wear my ring. We never stood before a preacher. The only vows exchanged were between our bodies; between our souls. But she was mine and I was hers until I ruined it. I have to believe that every day, every step, every breath brings me closer to making things right. To making her mine again.

KAI

I’ve seen promises broken. I know love makes no guarantees. But things were different for Rhys and me, until he lied, and I walked away. Only there’s a chain between our hearts that I can’t break. Even if I forgive him, a shadow from my past hangs over us; over this love that reaches all the way down to my soul.

5 Star ReviewSynopsis

It seems the things worth keeping are often the hardest to hold…

KAI

I had two things in life that mattered. My mother and my music.
Mama was taken from me too soon, and now music is all I have left. It’s the thing that’s pushed me right out of backwoods Georgia into Los Angeles, where the line between fantasy and reality shimmers and blurs. I’m finally making my way, making my mark. I can’t afford to fall for one of music’s brightest stars. Not now. Music is all I have left, and I’m holding on tight with both hands. I won’t let go, not even for Rhyson Gray.

RHYSON

I had one thing in my life that mattered – music. The only constant, it’s taken me to heights most people only dream about; a gift dropped in my lap at birth. I thought it was enough. I thought it was everything until I met Kai. Now she’s all I think about, like a song I can’t get out of my head. If I have to chase her, if I have to give up everything – I will. And once she’s mine, I won’t let go.

Kristys Review (2)

5 Star ReviewI loved this book.

I LOVED it !!!

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK !!!

I am an absolute sucker for a rockstar book and of course, that’s what put this book on my radar.  But this book ended up being like the anti-rockstar  rockstar book and I think that made me love it even more.  It was unlike any rocker book I’ve read which made it soar so far above the majority of books I come across.  I adored this entire book…..EXCEPT the fact that it’s a serial and while it ended with a resolution of sorts (not a total cliffy) there is so much more to this story and I NEED MORE.   The wait is going to be excruciating, painful even. Uggg….

But here’s what made it SPECTACULAR

The Characters

I absolutely adored the characters in this book.  Rhyson was everything you could possibly want him to be….and then he was 3 times better than that.  He was just absolute perfection, and just when I thought he might screw that up….he chose not to.  OMG I loved (love) him.  Kai is one of my favorite female leads in a VERY long time.  She is one strong, independent, amazing woman.  She works her butt off and is determined to make it on her own, without being dependent on anyone.  She’s not perfect, she makes mistakes, but she is so inspiring.  And then there are all of the other characters…San, Grady, Bris….all well rounded, engaging, and perfectly placed in the story.  Even the characters you need to hate are spectacular in their dis-likability.

The Story

I love LOVE LOVED this story, this romance, this journey for both Rhys and Kai.  It is everything you want a great romance to be…and then it’s better than that.  It feels TRUE, it feels believable, it feels authentic.  Nothing is forced or artificial, every step of the journey for these two characters will draw you in, make you feel, make you want and need and ache for them.  Even sitting here writing this review two days later I can still FEEL this book….did I mention I loved this book.  And the other thing I loved…this story just doesn’t conform.  It doesn’t take you through the usual hoops you’ve come to expect, predict even.  Instead it takes you on a completely new ride. YAY

The Writing

The writing is absolutely gorgeous.  Having never read a Kennedy Ryan book before I had no idea what to expect, but this woman was born to write.  I read a ton of books, I read a lot of good books, I even read quite a few great books.  BUT eloquence is hard to find and I crave it.  This book was beautifully eloquent like the very best song lyrics, you could tell every word was thoughtfully crafted.  This book actually took me longer to read because I kept going back to re-read paragraphs, not because I didn’t understand, but because I wanted to savor the words on the page.  This is the kind of writing that makes you go search out everything this author has ever written….yep it was that good.+

The Problem

March is too freaking far away….I need more now.

Excerpt

I shouldn’t have come. All the things I felt and fought, the things I suspected he felt too, he just spewed all over me. And as much as I want to be, I’m not sure I’m ready. I’ll never forget seeing my Mama in bed for days after Daddy left. And even though she got up, I suspect a part of her never left that bed, but just stayed there, waiting. We had to leave the house where she grew up and where I spent my first years, because Daddy left us with nowhere to go. Mama learned to stand on her two feet, and I’ve done the same. I just didn’t count on Rhyson sweeping me off of them.

“We’re obviously on different pages about this.” I pull my hands free and turn to leave, but he steps in front of me, blocking my grand exit. “Let’s talk later.”

“Enough talking.”

The heat of his body grabs me before his hands do. He traps my chin between two fingers, taking my mouth in a paradox of rough and tender. I want to move. To slide away from his body pressing me into the pool table. But I can’t. Not with his hand caressing my back. Not with his tongue in my mouth. Not with his erection pressing into my stomach. I can’t. I won’t. I have been denying myself this, and I’m so damn hungry. My mouth opens under his, ravenous and wet and hot. His groan vibrates against my lips.

“Yes. Good God, yes, Pep.” His words slip down my throat.

I strain up on tiptoes, clawing my fingers into his dark hair, forcing him closer. He lifts me onto the pool table, planting himself between my knees. His fingers skim my bare thigh, working up my leg until he reaches a damp patch of silk. He pushes my panties aside, rubbing his hand into the wet flesh there before sliding one long finger and then another inside of me. I rock into these fingers which have awed millions with their skill. They own me. I’m the instrument in his hands. He’s playing me. Plucking at me. Strumming me.

He tugs at the wide neck of my sweater until it falls away from my shoulder, slipping his hand in and cupping my naked breast. He brushes his fingers over my nipple, and I lose my mind and every inhibition. My head flops back and I stretch my legs wider, offering him anything he wants.

“Are you kidding me?” His question burns the vulnerable curve of my neck as he drags his lips to my shoulder. “You come here wearing no bra and think I won’t…”

He abandons the words, his dark, untidy head disappearing under my sweater, and before I have time to regain even millimeters of sanity, my nipple is in his mouth and he’s suckling me. Not gentle. Not soft. My breasts are so small, he almost eats me whole. Every draw, every suck, every bite sends a power surge to my core until my knees hold his hips in a desperate grip, and my nails rake across the flat surface of the pool table behind me.

His mouth at my breast. His fingers inside me. His clean scent surrounding me. I have nowhere to hide anymore. I am exposed. I want to spread myself wide open for him. That voice that has been telling me I can’t rely on him. I can’t trust him. I can’t need him—that voice is stunned into silence by his thorough possession of my body, by the inferno between my legs, blazing a hole right through my soul and scorching my heart.

I can’t afford to fall for one of music’s brightest stars. Not now. Music is all I have left, and I’m holding on tight with both hands. I won’t let go, not even for Rhyson Gray.

RHYSON

I had one thing in my life that mattered – music. The only constant, it’s taken me to heights most people only dream about; a gift dropped in my lap at birth. I thought it was enough. I thought it was everything until I met Kai. Now she’s all I think about, like a song I can’t get out of my head. If I have to chase her, if I have to give up everything – I will. And once she’s mine, I won’t let go.

About Kennedy Ryan

 

I just can’t write about myself in third person for one more bio! I’m a wife, a mom, a writer, an advocate for families living with autism. That’s me in a nutshell. Crack the nut, and you’ll find a Southern girl gone Southern California who loves pizza and Diet Coke, and wishes she got to watch a lot more television. You can usually catch me up too late, on social media too much, or FINALLY putting a dent in my ever-growing To Be Read list!
