It sucked me straight in from the off and is jam packed full of everything needed to fully enjoy Grip. I loved their banter and really felt the pull between them and their chemistry! Wow!
Kennedy Ryan is amazing at the slow burn!
That ending! I need to jump into Grip right now. I know it's going to be amazing. I really can't recommend this highly enough.
Plot wise, you know what you're going to get from Kennedy. She has the ability to deliver an intricately woven storyline that is developed flawlessly and has intrigue by the bucket load. However, what she's done with this story is nothing short of incredible. She had me hanging on every word, and each of them burrowed itself in my being. There were moments where there was some ugly girl crying going on, others where I had this overwhelming need to shake both Marlon and Bristol to their senses and then there were those where I felt my insides light up so hot and bright that I melted into a great big puddle of swoony goo. Although there is a lot of drama from social factors surrounding their romance it is never too much. The drama doesn't interrupt the flow of the the story and it doesn't make it feel OTT. What I will say is that it adds this very raw and gritty push and pull to the plot. The way in which Ms. Ryan has played her cards is rather cunning and ingenious. I have to give it to her— her storytelling skill is out of this world.
When it came to the characters there were times when I got a little frustrated with them. Bristol is career motivated, strong and focused. There were times where I just wanted her to put her career aside and go with her heart, however this is where this story is grounded in reality. Lets be honest, in real life would we put something as big and important as a career aside to follow the heart's whims and wants? Personally, I'm a little like Bristol and I'd find it hard to let go of it, not because of the material side of things, but because of independence and stubbornness. I loved this. It was in so many ways empowering to have a leading lady that wasn't just a romantic, but is also pragmatic and driven. Aside from that she's been somewhat broken and it's made her closed-off, at times stand-offish however, it's also made her fierce and grounded. Basically, she gave me reader wood. She's the leading lady of a reader's dream. She really is and deserves the tittle of heroine. I love her so much. I could not get enough of her...
Which brings me to Marlon 'Grip' James. Although Marlon is the star in the story, for me he isn't the star of the story. no, that falls completely to Bristol. However, he helps to make her shine and to put her there. He really helps open her up with his patient and captivating sweetness. He unravels her with his charm and candidness, and he shows her that despite everything working against them that they have something worth fighting for. He has a loyalty and honesty that strong-arms you on to his side. Not that there are sides, but you can't help but cheer him on. He is someone that hasn't had the easiest life, he hasn't always doe the right thing BUT he is remorseful and he's a fighter. There aren't any chips on his shoulder, his attitude isn't whiney and sorry for himself. I really loved him as a leading man.
I really could not get enough of this story. It reminded me of how monumental the right story written by a phenomenal author can be. It made me feel, think and love. But more so, it gave me hope in humanity, forgiveness and love. Kennedy Ryan has created a masterpiece that is unputdownable, unforgettable and truly epic.
Bristol and Marlon, aka Grip, meet in their early twenties when Bristol spends part of her Spring Break in LA, trying to reconnect with her estranged brother Rhyson. Even though they are from completely different backgrounds, the two hit it off immediately and find a connection with one another that is easygoing and real…something neither of them has felt before.
FLOW sets up the story so perfectly on what’s to come in GRIP. We have a dual POV from Grip and Bristol, which is great. I love hearing what each love interest is thinking as they try to navigate through this new relationship and what it means to each of them. Spring break ends on a sour note and Bristol heads back to New York. Do the two keep in touch after she leaves and what is to become of their romance?!
This is a must read before diving into GRIP. It’s #FREE, there is no reason not to one click!
A lot of things made me love this novella, first of all it was lengthier than most prequels out there and that made me happy. I hate when novellas are too short, I get that they are called novellas because they are shorter than a normal book, but you can still have a novella that is too short! I loved both characters as individuals, and I of course also loved Rhyson. I couldn't not even though I was a little frustrated with him sometimes for what he would sometimes say to Bristol (poor gal) but I mean, with the parents they had and what he went through I get why he would be that away but I also couldn't help felling really bad for Bristol, she just wanted her brother's love.
Yes, I loved them all as individuals, they were all great people in their own away but I LOVED Grip and Bristol's connection, their chemistry and interactions, it was all so genuine and very entertaining and just lovely to read. They way they talked about everything and the way they bickered ugh, I LOVED IT ALL. I could not get enough of these two!!
Their conversations were so fun and real too. I love their reaction to each other and the conversations they had. They talked about real issues and that is also something I loved, am loving in this series. That alone makes me want to shout to the world to read this series, for that it is not just powerful for the love story it tells but for the history, the truth of our world.. all the injustices and atrocities Black people have gone through and still go through every day.
I recommend this series 100%. For every romance lover, every new adult lover, every Kennedy Ryan lover, or just for anyone who is breathing right now... go read this.
