    Flow - 5 Chocolate Charm Stars When I read the Souls series I was very much intrigued by Grip and Bristol's relationship and wondered what was their story. Because they certainly had chemistry in spades. Their simmering lust and attraction also hinted at a much more deeper connection.

Because they certainly had chemistry in spades. Their simmering lust and attraction also hinted at a much more deeper connection. With Flow, a short prequel, I got not just a hint but a pretty damn good look into how they first met and how deep their relationship goes. Especially on a personal level. Their interactions were phenomenal and I loved how comfortable they were around each other. They reveled in each other's company and their conversations flowed effortlessly, layered with so much intensity. I couldn't remove my eyes from the intoxicating prose and words of Kennedy Ryan. Grip and Bristol were amazing and turned out to be very complex and multi layered characters. I loved the range and depth of their conversations which were a great mixture of race and culture. Also their own views and opinions of today's and the 90's society played a huge part of this story and I appreciate that Ryan chose to go that route with Grip and Bristol. My impression and love for both of them only expanded and I got so much more excited as the story progressed. I can easily tell that Kennedy Ryan is a huge fan and admirer of poetry. Her prose feels just like that. Poetry. Her words flows with ease, gently pulls my along like a wave and I'm immersed. I'm in another world, the world of Kennedy Ryan and that's definitely the place to be. Grip - 5 Poetry Stars I was definitely wooed by Grip and his delicious chocolate charm. Marlon aka Grip isn't all about being a famous hip hop star. No, he has so much story hidden behind those good looks of his. A voice to be heard because he has plenty to say. Not just through his lyrics but also in general. A very strong opinion and a talent beyond words. He's also a good man who's been raised right by his mother in a tough environment in Compton. When he finally gains success he never forgets where he's from or the people that matter the most to him. Bristol is my kind of woman and I have to be honest that I wasn't a fan of hers when I met her in the Souls series. But already while reading Flow I had to admit that I was wrong. She won me over and after reading Grip I want her as my best friend cause she kicked ass. I also saw a more vulnerable side to her that immediately captured me. That vulnerability goes back to her strained relationship with her parents and her brother Rhyson. It will also play a huge role in her relationship with Grip. Grip and Bristol's relationship is extraordinary and so intense that I got chills every time they were around one another. There's so much history between them since their friendship goes back years. That only strengthened my connection and my need to know more. What I love about them is how at ease and comfortable they were with each other. They connected on deeper level. Through conversations about race, society and music. Only open to each other's opinions and never narrow minded. One thing they both wanted explore further was their mutual attraction which was out of this world. Simply magical. Their love and how far they will go for it and one another knows no bounds. I was drunk on their love. One of many things Kennedy Ryan succeeds with in Grip and also Flow are her choice of topics and how she weaves them into Grip and Bristol's story. Especially music and race plays a huge and important role. It gives the story an edge but most importantly it also gives more depth to the characters. Not just to Grip and Bristol but also to the secondary characters. Grip is an extraordinary story with a powerful message which has to be experienced. Still - 5+ Pretty Bird Stars I've followed Grip and Bristol since they were introduced in Soul, the two books about Rhyson and Kai where they were secondary characters. What a journey Grip and Bristol have been on and it concludes in this phenomenal book STILL. I was one of those who was left wanting more of Gripstol when I finished Grip, so I was pretty darn happy when Kennedy Ryan announced STILL. I'm not going to dive too much into the storyline cause I don't want to give anything away. If you're a true Gripstol fan STILL is a delicious dessert that'll explore this beautiful couple further, give us fans what we can expect from Kennedy Ryan and a closure that left me satisfied and satiated. My expectations for STILL is fulfilled by a 100%. I was only a couple of pages into STILL and I was back in that warm cocoon exactly when I read the Soul series, Flow and Grip. I didn't want to leave. I just wanted to be in this cocoon with Gripstol. Grip and Bristol's friendship is what drew me to them in the first place. They build such a strong foundation in Flow and Grip that only continues to grow in STILL. As lovers there's so many intense emotions that still comes into play. They are both fiercely possessive and protective and I enjoyed to see that side of them especially Bristol. They're both honest and eloquent when it comes to what they want and need from one another in their relationship. They've matured so much and it shows in their actions. Their love surpass anything and there aren't anything they won't do for one another. They both bravely dive into new challenges. Bristol wants and tries wholeheartedly to understand Grip and his culture. To be a part of his world. Grip uses his fame to educate himself so he can help others who are in need. They both kept surprising me and I fell more in love and in awe of them. Their friendship and love is unparalleled and in STILL both are being put to the test. Grip and Bristol both fight tooth and nails to protect and save one another. No matter the cost. They are each other's constants and confidents. While I read STILL I felt how impervious their love was. It showed in their words and actions. No matter how broken or vulnerable they both were they persevered because of their unconditional love and theirs was truly epic. Kennedy Ryan penetrated my soul with STILL. Her flawless and poetic prose kept me spellbound. Her narrative is strong, powerful and with STILL Ryan captures and explores clearly what's current in the world today, questions it and brings awareness to it with authenticity. How she intertwined those topics into Grip and Bristol's story was executed effortlessly. STILL left me content and very satisfied. I had my own hopes and dreams for Grip and Bristol and Kennedy Ryan delivered. I'm saying goodbye to them with my heart and soul filled with love and joy. What a journey since Soul. They will definitely not be forgotten. All In - 5 stars This short novella just shows how far Grip and Bristol have come. Their lives are busier than ever and after all they’ve been through they know they need to prioritize each other and their marriage. Their love is stronger than ever. Splendid Happiness - 5 Stars If this short novella is the last I hear from Grip and Bristol I’ll be very content with how it ends. This was so good. Plenty of cameos from the characters that have appeared in the series and are important to the couple. Splendid Happiness was icing on the cake. And that surprise from #GripStolπŸ₯°

    I reread this on Kindle as a complete box set with all the books and some extras short stories that can be seen as extended epilogues. I recommend it you will get some extra goodness for Bristol & Grip!! It is not a secret how much I love Kennedy's writing. There is a certain poetry element she brings to her storytelling ways that make her books filled with magic. In terms of contemporary romance, she is IT for me! There is a realistic element in her plotlines & characters however she adds that I reread this on Kindle as a complete box set with all the books and some extras short stories that can be seen as extended epilogues.

There is a realistic element in her plotlines & characters however she adds that fantastic romance part that makes it a swoon-worthy. She is thought-provoking and intentional without hitting you on the head with her point!! Especially in this series where social justice, racism, and police brutality are a huge part of the story. The romance part of this book is amazing too!! I love the longing and pining from the hero side. On the other hand, I get heroine hesitancy and issues with opening up and being vulnerable. This series will put you through an emotional roller coaster but IT IS WORTH IT!! I underlined so many parts of this series... If by chance you haven't read it I recommend you pick it up also if you want more from the couple this box set has extra scenes that are worth it!! As our hero is a rapper and the heroine is a music manager there is a lot of music talk besides some fantastic lyrics. Here is the link to the author's Spotify playlist Flow/Grip Still

    This series was a Best of 2017 and even now in 2020, it is still A BEST SERIES EVER!! Flow- There is nothing better than reading a story where the connection between the characters literally penetrates your soul. The words that drive the story are amazingly poetic, emotionally raw and beautifully awakening. The sparks that ignite the characters are deep and palpable. Flow is the prequel to GRIP, and gives us the start of how Grip and Bristol meet and what transpires between the two when Bristol c This series was a Best of 2017 and even now in 2020, it is still A BEST SERIES EVER!! Flow- There is nothing better than reading a story where the connection between the characters literally penetrates your soul. The words that drive the story are amazingly poetic, emotionally raw and beautifully awakening. The sparks that ignite the characters are deep and palpable. Flow is the prequel to GRIP, and gives us the start of how Grip and Bristol meet and what transpires between the two when Bristol comes to reconnect with her brother, Rhyson. Grip- WOW WOW WOW......this story blew me away. Besides being a love story, it was a story that crossed race and social issues that are alive and well in this country. It was emotional, it was heartbreaking, it was thought provoking, it was loving and it was HEALING. Stories of interracial couples have stereotypes and stigmas but this author traverses the issues and displays them in a real, raw, captivating way. While the story is not all about racial difference, the love story of Grip and Bristol is full of meaningful feelings from past and present that all intertwine into a magnificent book. Still- I k now I sound like a broken record but what I really loved about the book, this series, is the connection that these two characters feel for one another. Being an interracial couple comes with stigmas but Grip and Bristol don't buy into them. There are those against them, those for them, and those that placate them because they believe they won't last. The issues that they face are real, ugly, and hurtful at times but because of their deep commitment towards one another, they are able to rise above it all. It's not easy at times but they forever Feel, Trust, and Believe. I felt it, I believed it, and Grip and Bristol totally demonstrated...... Always Evermore Ever After STILL

Grip & Bristol = Crazy chemistry you'll be able to feel coming from the pages. Both these characters have such passion that it makes some choices hard to make. 1st book by this author and it won't be my last. aaarrrgggghhh!!!! On to book 2 sign me up to the Kennedy Ryan fan club! ~ GRIP ~ More stars needed!!!! I cannot, even if I tried, Love Marlon aka GRIP more than I do - My heart is completely full. He is absolute PERFECTION!!! In soo many different ways. I'm just "Whoa" #woo #swooned #LoveGrip4Life AND-- Although she exasperated me a little from time to time, I ended up IN LOVE with Bristol!!!! I totally understood her once "It" came to light. I was like "Omg...Yes, that makes sense. I get it" #girlpower #strongwoman #loyal Bristol and Grip are my absolute favorite couple. Phenomenal characters! This story has touched all my feelings and the deepest part of my heart and mind. The development of Marlon and Bristol's relationship was fascinating. I was not only enamored but was also given food for thought. The real life struggles they endured as a couple and also as individuals was empowering. I feel like a better person after reading this. We splinter into a thousand pieces..., becoming more together than we were apart. More than we were alone. With whispered promises and words of love, we exchange hearts. β€œDon’t you feel how connected we are?” I ask. β€œIf I break your heart, I break mine.” This entire story beginning with FLOW book #0.5 has been quite a page turner for me. I'm onto book 2 STILL ❀ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Prequel: Flow 11/9/18- Listened to the audio. Wow!! It's everything! ~ STILL ~ β˜†Awe-Inspiring and Unforgettableβ˜† "I've loved you so long, my heart doesn't remember life before you." This is one of the best books I've ever read. It's beyond beautiful. The characters are soo unbelievably amazing. This seriesΒ  has a power couple! I cannot think of another book that has that, not like Bristol and Grip. In my review of GRIP I said I couldn't possibly love Grip(Marlon) more.. I was proven wrong. My heart grew to make room for MORE love for Grip and Bristol. I love them both #relationshipgoals Ask me if I love you, and my heart will answer before my lips can part. This story was Real as real can be. With life challenges, decisions and choices. With a LOVE that is sublime, profound, unyielding and boundless. So many different topics that our society must deal with and unfortunately at times go undealt with left behind as if ignored they can go away. The author has done an amazing job presenting these topics and not once did I feel I was being told to feel a certain way. Both pov's regarding the issues were presented. It was not one sided. Many many words that reached my heart and will stay forever. I'm trying to explain how much this story has touched me and left me in awe but I feel I'm failing at that. Everyone should read this series. There are many characters I loved but I instantly loved Mrs. O'Malley! Mrs. James #mothergoals More STARS needed for this story!! I love this book (and this series) and I hope I translated that ❀❀❀❀❀ There were heavy moments but there were also Fun Happy Laugh-out-Loud moments RE-READ 11/15/18 - It's like it gets better the 2nd time around.

I'm already reading Grip the second part of this beautiful story.

The beginning of Grip and Bristol This book was a surprise for me it was the first book I read from Kennedy but I know her work. I'm already reading Grip the second part of this beautiful story. In flow, we can see the beginning of the story of Grip and Bristol.. their dreams and hopes ... the journey of their friendship and love. you can see and understand the chemistry between them. Bristol just got to California. trying to catch up with her brother Rhyson as they haven't seen each other for a while. Rhyson thinks she has come to mess up with his life, in some way or another .. he has alienated himself from her and his family for some past issues.. but Bristol doesn't count that this trip will change her life forever, The last thing she expected was for Grip to turn her world upside down. "I look at her, cataloging her features one by one and realizing the most fascinating thing about this girl isn’t visible to the naked eye." Grip, is a good friend of Bristols brother, Rhyson. he happens to be the one to meet her up at the airport, a meeting that will change the life of them forever.. he didn't expect to see her, he didn't expect to have feelings for her, not the little sister of his best friend. Grip has dreams, he is an aspiring rapper artist. He likes to recite poetry, poetry that will keep Bristol and all of us swooning. "If I could undo your kisses If I could un-feel your touch If I could unhook this heart from yours I would. But I’m trapped in the memory of what we were Stuck with the reality of what we are Tempted with the promise of a future Afraid of possibility I don’t know how our story ends, but thisβ€”this is where it started." The love and the chemistry between Grip and Bristol will flow since the being .. there will be chemistry and understanding .. It only took a few glances for Grip to fall for Bristol. but he cannot deny the attraction and his feelings. Will Bristol and Grip give their love a chance? it is an intense ride a very emotional but very worth it!! you are going to love these two!! Grip> Wow, it took me so much time to get around Grip because I knew it was going to be a very emotional ride and I needed to have a few strong hairs in me hahah not to cry that much but wow this book is just breathtaking.. so many emotions through the whole story... The way Kennedy take us in this ride full of love, and raw emotions, is just beautiful... Grip is the continuation of Bristol and Grip story .. it is a very emotional book.. not only because Bristol and Grip have so many ups and downs, as well as so many challenges that life and people throw at them because they're an interracial couple .. they're constantly fighting so many obstacles including their families, who are against their relationship.. so many things are at stake for Bristol's mom and a few other people who are determined to separate them... Grip is the typical boy who comes from the wrong side of the neighborhood but his mamma kept him away from the wrong side... Grips is a fighter he is trying to make something of himself.. he has a very deep soul, he is persistent, a very talented hip hop artist trying to make his way in the music industry Bristol works as his Manager making their relationship a lot of harder... Bristol is a very strong heroine, beautiful, sassy and comes from a very rich family.... she is also vulnerable and sensible, she keeps herself from Grip thinking she is doing the right thing.. and also remembering old words from her past that keep coming back to hunt her and making her feel that men and love are not to be trusted ... but no matter how much she tries Grip has the power to make her fall to her knees (well sometimes lol) because she is stubborn as hell. You're going to cry, laugh, and sometimes want to slap a few characters .. Prepare yourself for a great story full of love and emotions that will leave you with a book hangover for days. love Kennedys words. Still> It's been a few days since I've finished Still, it was hard to write a review of such an amazing book.. I'm not sure I can put all my feelings here without giving too much away or giving any spoilers but I'm going to try... The story of Grip and Bristol continues and this time we get to see so much more about their struggles and beautiful moments. Grip has been working hard to work on a mission that's very close to his heart.. he has an opportunity now to make this dream come true, to spread the word and help others. The opportunity to get closer and make his project real is finally here, he is ready to move to another city to accomplish all this.. now is just a matter of time to see what's about to unfold. β€œI aspire to be many things,” she finally says, β€œbut there is nothing I will ever do that will make me prouder than being your wife.” Bristols career is going great, with so many new artist and contracts under her wing, she decides to follow Grip on his moving plans.. life is about to change for both of them.. so many new challenges and new things to fight for.. but their love is stronger than ever and nothing can break them apart. "When things are out of control, he’s always my peace, always my sigh of relief. He’s the reminder that comes what may, there’s us, and we aren’t going anywhereβ€”ever." Grip has become one of my favorite heroes of all times.. I've never read a character or even met a man like him.. he is so in love with Bristol.. in a way that you can even feel it.. and that's the beauty of Kennedy's words. When you read her words you actually feel so much of what Grips is going through, or what Bristol is felling. I could feel the powerful connection between them.. the angst, the worry. Everything they went through was very well felt through Kennedys writing.. Grip love, is humble, and pure, he didn't have any problem to say sorry, to be the first one to apologize, he was just a true gentleman.. always putting Bristol first no matter what. For Grip their love was first.. and I believe that is the key or that was the key for them.. their love was more important than anything, than any career or thing.. and their love is what binds them and makes them survive any harshness life throws at them. "When I was at my lowest and thought all was lost, he found me in hell and brought me home." In Still, Grip and Bristol go through so many sensitive but powerful experiences that will leave you, with many things to think about and reflect.. but the most important message I got from Still was..... "I want a love with no walls. This world uses whatever it canβ€”race, politics, religionβ€”to divide us. We can have differences, but promise me they won’t be walls that divide us.” Love conquers ALL in every single aspect of our lives and Grip and Bristol show us that no matter what, love is the key to every adversity and locked up heart. β€œIf I only get one life with you,” I mutter into his neck, β€œthen, yes, I’m holding on to every moment and every word you say.” No matter if everything was collapsing all around, no matter if they felt like the world had no room for their relationship.. love kept them together, love was their safe place ... love was the only language they understood.. No matter what life threw at them, with their love, they will be always ready to fight. Their love was put to a test for years but Still love kept bring them closer together.. "Great love must be tested." "the only thing I can promise you is that I will love you for the rest of my life, and I truly believe we can survive anything together. Do you believe that?” There are so many great secondary characters in Still, we get to see Rhyson and Kai, Qwest, Jade, Marlon's Mom. Mrs. O’Malley that I Luv!! I need that recipe for her collards!! lol and so many others that we met on Grip. "thank you for raising such a magnificent man. He is the man of my dreams. When I thought of my husband, I didn’t dream in color, I dreamt in character." I really recommend Still, it is an amazing book with a huge message and tons of love to give and spread around... in love with Kennedy's writing.. looking forward to reading more of her books.

My Review for STILL: I’m speechless after finishing this book, it’s absolutely brilliant! I’m one of those readers who clamor for more Bristol and Grip. Overjoyed when Kennedy decided to write Still and it became one of my anticipated releases this year and she didn’t disappoint. Kennedy didn’t write just for the sake of writing a sequel but she wrote this book with finesse; her words are heartwarming that will touch you to the core. It’s beautifully written through and through. In Still, Bristol and Grip continue with their life together, some people still doubt their love for each other. What I like about this couple is their open communication with each other they may have some arguments just like any other couple but at the end of the day, they were able to resolve it. There’s a particular scene that totally wrecked me that, I need to stop reading for a while because my vision went blurred with tears. It’s one of the most heart-wrenching decisions Bristol and Grip has to make. Will they make the right choice? How will this decision affect their relationship? Still is an endearing love story of two people, who know what unconditional love is. That no matter what life throws at them they'll face it together. This is one of the best series I've read this year. Kennedy Ryan just blows me away with this book. A real page-turner and those sexy times, sizzling! Grip can be such a dirty talker. *fans self* I greatly recommend this series, because the time I spent reading this series, was time well-spent!

    Flow is prequel perfection. I absolutely loved getting to see how it all started for Bristol and Grip.

Seeing Bristol in such a different light from what we know of her from the Soul series was such a revelation! And Grip, Grip is some kind of special. Grip is magnificent. It's an emotional and profound journey of two extraordinary people who've shared a soul deep connection since the moment they met. Grip will grab your heart, reach into your soul, and it will not let go. Grip is engrossing, it's relevant, it's a powerful and passionate love story. But it's much more than that. It's a thought-provoking look at society and the issues still faced, sadly and shamefully, by a large segment of the population of this country. Bristol and Grip are EVERYTHING . The love they share is jealousy inducing. It's real and beautiful and heart stopping. Through the years it has never diminished. Ms. Ryan paints such a magical picture of two headstrong and stubborn people- if there was ever a couple meant to be together it was these two. Still, while still continuing to delve further into racial issues and issues of inequality that were in the forefront of Grip, is truly a love story. It's a love story between a man and a woman who know no bounds when it comes to their love. The love Bristol and Grip share is real, it's astounding, it's a once-in-a-lifetime kind of love. And in Still, Ms. Ryan will have you feeling and reeling and reveling in their love. These are two people who "love without walls." Always. Evermore. Even after.

    FLOW - 5 STARS Flow is the captivating prequel to Grip. This novella gave us the story of how Bristol and Grip met, but it was so much more. This novella was both intense and deep. We were given lots of background information on these characters and this helps us to understand the complexity of them both. The chemistry between Bristol and Grip was just off the charts amazing. They had an instant connection and Kennedy Ryan did a fantastic job of making the reader feel the emotions along with them FLOW - 5 STARS Flow is the captivating prequel to Grip. This novella gave us the story of how Bristol and Grip met, but it was so much more. This novella was both intense and deep. We were given lots of background information on these characters and this helps us to understand the complexity of them both. The chemistry between Bristol and Grip was just off the charts amazing. They had an instant connection and Kennedy Ryan did a fantastic job of making the reader feel the emotions along with them especially with that cliff-hanger ending. OMG....This was an excellent read. GRIP - 5 STARS Gripping, Emotional, Compelling are some of the words I would use to describe this novel. Grip was a riveting page-turner that kept me hooked until the very end. I've been excited to read this novel, however Bristol and Marlon's story was so much more than I could have ever expected. Yes it is a story about Love regardless of one's skin color, yet it is also a story about the harsh realities of Life. There are so many important lessons to be learnt in this novel and the author must be given high praise for writing and successfully portraying these hot-topic social issues. With complex characters and a thought-provoking story-line, this book was a roller-coaster of emotions and you feel every one of those emotions most especially the intensity of the chemistry between Bristol and Grip. Kennedy Ryan's ability to craft a tale and have the reader so invested in the characters is amazing. In addition to her incredible writing I loved the poetry in this novel. I would give this novel a 6 star rating because of how much I loved it. It was an excellent read. STILL - 5 STARS STILL was an emotional master-piece that had me hooked until the very end. There are not enough words to accurately describe how much this book touched my heart. Kennedy Ryan has such a way with words that she can make everything sound so profound. I read this book and I was in awe. Yes this page-turner was a romance or better yet an epic love story but it was so much more. Prejudice, racism, dealing with loss, depression are just some of what you will find in this novel. Bristol and Grip's story continue from the previous books (Flow and Grip). Here we get the natural progression of their relationship moving from one stage to the next. The intense chemistry they have together was felt from page one and right through the pages of this novel, but more than that was the love they shared. The way Kennedy Ryan was able to express that love made me an emotional mess one minute and then had me swooning in the next minute. Life and Love is not easy, you have to work at it and that is also what was portrayed in this novel. Along with the bad you also have the good. Grip and Bristol's love was epic, but the away he expresses that love and the way Bristol supports him shows why they are both perfect for each other. This book was a roller-coaster of emotions but you would not want it any other way. I laughed, I cried, I bawled my eyes out, I was disgusted and appalled, I was angry, I was in awe. The twists and turns had me on the edge of my seat. I finally understand what readers mean when they say a book broke them apart and then put them back together because that is exactly what this story did to me, it ripped me apart and put me back together again. Kennedy Ryan you are an amazing writer. Never in a million years would I have guessed I could love the third book in this series even more that the previous two. This brilliant, thought-provoking, heart-wrenching, unexpected page-turner will stay with you for day and definitely leave you with a massive book hangover. This was a phenomenal read and deserves way more that 5 stars. I absolutely loved it.

    GRIP 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 How do I start this review and do justice to this incredible book. This was my first book from Kennedy Ryan and definitely wont be my last. It's a real romance with actual and still present issues. It presents the struggles of interracial couples, the divide by the color of skin and social class. The writing is literally "POETRY" and I hope it will evoke in you all the amount of incredible feelings that took and twisted my heart. Grip has all that you as a contemporary romance reader GRIP 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 How do I start this review and do justice to this incredible book. This was my first book from Kennedy Ryan and definitely wont be my last. It's a real romance with actual and still present issues. It presents the struggles of interracial couples, the divide by the color of skin and social class. The writing is literally "POETRY" and I hope it will evoke in you all the amount of incredible feelings that took and twisted my heart. Grip has all that you as a contemporary romance reader would love in a book. You will not want to put this book down and it will takes you months to get over the hangover. Life lessons will be impart and stay with you to help you be a better person. It would make your heart pound in crescendo, your hands sweat, your nails may be non-existent, your undies will definitely get soaked and even your kindle may suffer from a trow to the wall jajajaj. Now lets talk a bit about Grip " Sigh" and Bristol. This couple it's so unique and not because of the differences of their skin color but because of that deep deep connection they found with each other. It is a once in a lifetime kind of love. The journey this two will endure it's crucial for their emocional growth. They will learn from each other, they will love and hurt, push and pull. Grip is an incredible, gorgeous, intelligent, talented, loving, sexy, cocky man from the hood. Bristol is a feisty, resilient, strong, intelligent, loving, gorgeous, sassy, sexy "rich girl". They will learn as we will too that LOVE doesn't judge by color, age, the money you make or even where you live. Love makes you strong, give you hope, wings and make you LIVE. Ignorance and prejudice is what destroy and divide. Don't let me keep telling you about it and GO grab your copy of GRIP and I garantee you that you will love it as much as I do and will be in a MAYOR BOOK HANGOVER when you finish. STILL 10 STARS I knew reading this book was gonna reck me completely and writing this review was going to be the biggest challenge for me because how can I explain to all of you how amazing and fulfilling this story has become when I can’t even find the right words to do so. I LOVE it so much MY HEART can't take it. How can I do justice to Kennedy's brilliant mind. No matter what I write it will be too simple, too plain compare to my UNDENIABLE LOVE for Still. They are a few books that stay in your hearts and mind for as long as you live. This books will make you appreciate your life, make you thankful for every breath you take, for every morning you get to wakeup beside the love of your life, to be able to hold your daughter in your arms, for the family that's there every step of your simple but magnificent life. Makes you enjoy the good and let the bad make you stronger. This books will open your eyes and help you see beyond prejudice, color of skin, social status, and gender. STILL is for sure one of those book for ME. I will never forget Grip and Bristol story. If I was captivated before with their beginning in Grip; seen the completion of their journey on Still it surpassed my biggest dreams for this couple. I knew how good Kennedy's writing is but to write a sequel that surpasses Grip to the STRATOSPHERIC MAGNITUDE of GREATNESS that it did is goes beyond my wildest dreams with this story. We all know how Grip and Bristol struggled in Grip to accept and fight for their love. In Still this love will keep been tested in so many levels because what you told me Kennedy is true "LOVE TESTED IS STRONGER" and their love is the stronger of them all. We all dream of someday finding a love like this. A love WITHOUT WALL. Where nothing is band, judge, sensor, discouraged. Where you get your heart and soul naked to another and is receive as the most valuable thing in the world. Were your happiness and safety means everything. Were your heart is so intertwined that ones doesn't beat without the other. That's the kind of love Grip and Bristol share. This book is POETRY, is ART, is LIFE. Is has everything a great story needs to make it THE BEST OF 2017. I will bring you to your knees and squeeze your heart but also will let you rise and grant you Joy like never before. I don't like to write reviews that give you details of the story I just want you all to know how my heart feels about it. So I hope this is enough for you to grab this book because It's a once in a lifetime story. "My love, My life, My heart Never left your hands Always evermore Even after STILL"

    Flow The snippets of Bristol and Grip we got during the Soul series weren't nearly enough. In Flow, we get to see how that magic between them first began. I loved their connection in this novella... They're so deep, feeling all the things in so little time, that you just know something magical is coming. Grip I loved how this author broke down the different dynamics of Bristol and Grip's past and formed it into something worth waiting for. It was built up into something so monumental. The struggles Flow The snippets of Bristol and Grip we got during the Soul series weren't nearly enough. In Flow, we get to see how that magic between them first began. I loved their connection in this novella... They're so deep, feeling all the things in so little time, that you just know something magical is coming. Grip I loved how this author broke down the different dynamics of Bristol and Grip's past and formed it into something worth waiting for. It was built up into something so monumental. The struggles that they have as colleagues, friends, then lovers is something that we don't see much in romance books. How this author interweaves points on racism and class wars into such a beautiful love story is brilliant. Bristol and Grip's connection is why I love reading romance novels. Their game of cat and mouse that they play keeps the story fun. Their sexiness is through the roof. Their willingness to defy all odds and be together is so dreamy, so impactful, because in doing that they're each sacrificing a bit of themselves. Still This book gutted me! I love Grip and Bristol so much. This continuation of their story was equal parts sexy and heart wrenching. What we get in this book is often what I crave... It's a good look into their HEA that we got at the end of Grip. In Still, their happily ever after is remarkable. There is happiness in abundance: eye-opening, jaw-dropping, panty-melting happiness. Their chemistry has only intensified and it makes for some thigh-clenching reading. What we also get is a look at their struggle. We know that Bristol is a powerhouse, and she is a boss babe extraordinaire in this book. Grip is finding his voice and his passion and begins to dig deeper into how he wants to impact the world. The pain that they experience in this book will pierce your heart, but the way this author weaves beauty into tragedy is breathtaking. The poetry, oh, the poetry. Try reading these words and tell me that Grip isn't the book boyfriend to beat all book boyfriends. All together in one box set?! This is hands down an absolute must-read-right-now book for anybody who lives to read romance.

    This is honestly my favorite series by this author. It kinda stuck with being that ive been in the main female characters shoes. She brings to light the side you don't always see in a interracial relationship. And i loved it cause i actually understood a book characters journey more than anything in these books. I loved these two so much. So many emotions but so worth everything. This is honestly my favorite series by this author. It kinda stuck with being that ive been in the main female characters shoes.

    Flow: What a preview of things to come! I was HOOKED from the very first words and am now, like so many others completely in love with Grip!! I loved his easy-going manner, the way he is well-read and full of passion for his life. Rhyson picked the right man to be his bestie and Bristol never knew what hit her. The musical references, the fiery chemistry between Bris and Grip, the tension between Rhyson and Bris...all components I can't wait to get more of with Grip.

I loved his easy-going manner, the way he is well-read and full of passion for his life. Rhyson picked the right man to be his bestie and Bristol never knew what hit her. The musical references, the fiery chemistry between Bris and Grip, the tension between Rhyson and Bris...all components I can't wait to get more of with Grip. Grip: Grip is so much more than just a love story. Kennedy Ryan managed to not only write about the years long lust Grip and Bristol have for each other but combine it with the timely subject matter that is racism. These two have danced around each other for years, with Grip never wavering in his love for Bristol. And with time, that love only has grown stronger. For Bristol, she is determined to keep Grip at a distance, her years as the 'reject' of her successful family taking it's toll on her self-esteem. Fate has other ideas, though, and only time will tell whether or not Bristol will finally listen to her heart and ignore what her mind continues to tell her. To say I was blown away by this book is an understatement. I adored Bristol and her drive. Trying to be all things to everyone, loving Grip when she didn't want to and successfully managing a record company and varied artists with her brother, she is the kind of heroine I crave to read more often. Her vulnerability in wanting to stay away from Grip, when she knew he had her heart, was almost painful to read at times. I understood her resistance but so loved that she saw him. All of him. Not just his fame, or his ability to create music so effortlessly. And certainly not his color. This is a woman who loved those she cared about, almost too much. She would do anything for just an ounce of that all-consuming love back and when she found it in Grip, oh my, nothing was more exquisite. Still: Still is gloriously poignant. It's powerful. It filled me with a myriad of emotions, at times I didn't think I would be able to handle each one properly. I became so entrenched in this continuation of Grip and Bristol's story, that I honestly didn't know where the book started and my own thoughts ended. It is that exceptional. What Kennedy Ryan has created is an honest look at love. With Part I being the aftermath of Grip and Bristol finally finding their way to each other for good this time, they still have to deal with the world's warped view of their interracial relationship. Finding it within themselves to absorb the blatant disrespect for their love by those they both admire and adore, in the form Iz and Jade. Yet Grip and Bristol somehow manage to form an even tighter bond and rely on one another to help each other realize what to address and what to ignore. I couldn't have respected them more. They are a true team and I was blown away at their pure devotion. And then when the author gives us Part II, I felt as unprepared for what life would bring Grip and Bristol as they were. Kennedy Ryan never holds back. She wasn't afraid to write about a time when the world suddenly stops for a moment. When you might be living an existence you wish you could change and how you have to dig deep to find the light in the dark. Talk about extraordinary story-telling. What Grip and Bristol endure is as gut-wrenching as it is delicate. They prove once again that in the end, it's the love in it's most purest form that is truly the most potent of saviors. That even through the toughest of times, having that soulmate by your side can slay the toughest of demons. A must read trilogy that deserves all the stars and more!

    Love STILL This book is a powerful redition of true, unabashed love of two people who could weather any storm, as long as they were together facing the rain. Grip and Bristol have been in love with each other for so many years. It was a privilege to watch their love grow together in this book. If one thing gets me to my soul is reading/watching a man be in love with a woman (because he's always loved her). This book does that and my heart is so full. Grip loves Bristol so much, and You feel like t Love STILL This book is a powerful redition of true, unabashed love of two people who could weather any storm, as long as they were together facing the rain. Grip and Bristol have been in love with each other for so many years. It was a privilege to watch their love grow together in this book. If one thing gets me to my soul is reading/watching a man be in love with a woman (because he's always loved her). This book does that and my heart is so full. Grip loves Bristol so much, and You feel like they are right there in front of you, and you are witnessing their story first hand. "And when the years have passed, and we have watched a thousand sunsets, and we are bent, our bodies crooked with ageΒ  ask me again. In the twilight, in the shadow of the life we have shared, ask me if I love you, and my heart will answer before my lips can part. My love, my life,Β  my heart never left your hands. Always, evermore, even after. Still." This book, like the last one, expels the nature of what can happen when racism is part of your every day life. Not just from strangers or bigots, but from family too. It is hard to understand sometimes because I don't feel that way, but you know it's there. Everywhere. I wish there were more people like Grip in the world who would vocalize the plight of the system that could and do affect those of different races. "Too many of our American systems are built on bias. The irony is that these biases are often inextricably, if unconsciously, connected to our own sense of superiority. The very biases that make those in power feel stronger, better, actually weaken them. Our biases are our blind spots, and we need others to guide us in the darkness of our own ignorance." The above quote is mentioned a few times throughout the book, but it's funny (not funny as in ha ha funny though) regarding the person who says this, and the effect it has on those in the book. The flawless words written in this story moved me to the end. I cannot express to you the emotional rollercoaster I was on while reading this remarkable book. It solidifies everything that means anything in relationships, and It binds you to the characters in such a way that you are needing to reread the book immediately just to get more of them. I'm a hard and fast one-click reader for this author. Anything she writes I will read... It's just that simple. If you read about Rhys and Kai's story in My Soul To Keep or Down To My Soul or Refrain you already know Grip and Bristol. Now don't get me wrong, you don't have to read about Rhys and Kai to understand Grip and Bristol. You truly don't. You don't HAVE to read FLOW and/or GRIP to read STILL, but the plot makes more sense, because You understand some of their idiosyncrasies and get their true love story. It's just perfect. I voluntarily reviewed this fabulous book gifted to me by the author. Five stars ***** is not enough. I wish I could give more. I implore you to read this book. "Always, evermore, even after. Still"

If I thought I couldn't love Grip & Bristol more,I was dead wrong by the time I finished. I am in awe. I have no words to describe it. I've been hooked with this series but never in a million years expected what these books brought. I laughed and I cried my eyes out. I've been torn into a million pieces and put it back together. It's intense,it's heartbreaking,it's REAL. The issues that addresses are REAL. Grip & Bristol are the definition for TRUE LOVE and we see them solidifying their relationship even though life keeps throwing low punches non stop. But their love is so strong that nothing can bring them down. This story left me with a high so big that I never wanna come down. I've never felt so much love about both main characters. I wish I coul give it more stars because it deserves each and every single one. This series were my first from Kennedy Ryan but they've become one of my favorites series EVER.
