Kiss the Sky was such a fun book to read. It had a great story line and was one of the most entertaining stories I’ve read lately. Krista & Becca Ritchie have the perfect amount of humor, emotion, steam and wit in their books. This series is original, the romances are messy and perfect- I’m pretty sure this is turning into my new favorite NA series, because I seriously love everything about these books!

Rose Calloway is the perfect older sister of Lily and Daisy, but lately, things for her have not been so perfect. After the negative attention from her sister’s sex addiction, her clothing line has taken a hit. So has her father’s business, as well as the family’s reputation. Rose has found a way to fix all that, or at least she thinks it will. So she’s signed the gang up for a reality show. All six of them under one roof… what could go wrong?

Rose is the opposite of her sister Lily in many ways. One way in particular- she’s a virgin. She has been dating her intellectual counterpart for a year now. Connor Colbolt is a patient man. He’s smart, ambitious and confident to the extreme. These qualities make him different than the other guys, and they’re endearing to readers. Connor is nothing like I thought he would be and I mean that in the best way possible.

I never thought Connor would be so funny and sinful under his exterior and I never imagined Rose would actually be likable. It’s safe to say I was pleasantly surprised with these characters. Connor was fantastic and Rose was someone relatable. I loved this couple. They cared for each other deeply, put each other first and had incredible chemistry. And even though things in the show threaten their relationship, they stand strong and they stand together.
I had no one before Rose. No true friends. No family, not really.
Now I have her. I have people I care about. People that I want to protect.
Now I have everything.
The only thing about having everything is that you can lose it all.

I am crazy addicted to these books. Once I start one, I cannot stop listening. The writing is amazing and makes it so easy to fly through them. I feel like these characters are my friends, my family. It’s so easy to become attached to them all. I’ve listened to the first 4 on audio and the narration is wonderful. The voices that portray all these characters fit so well and show the perfect amount of emotion for the story.Connor and Rose’s story exceeded my expectations, and they were already high. I’m jumping into Hothouse Flower next and I can’t wait to get more of Daisy and Ryke’s story and more of my favorite couple- Lily and Lo <3

First of all, let me just tell you how COMPLETELY excited and relieved I am to have loved a book that most of my friends loved and 5-starred.

description

Such has not been the typical case of late.

Second of all, I am way late to the Calloway party and boy was I missing out. This is my first read of the series and it will definitely not be my last.

...I'm not sure I will dip my toe into the Addicted series though...

It sounds tres depressing. And I have enough of my own addictions to deal with as it is.

Just kidding, I don't suffer from all those addictions.

description

And I totally shouldn't make a joke of that because -

HELLO! -

Totally not funny.

description

Ahem, moving along...

I'm going to keep my thoughts on this brief. Because:

1) Like I said, I am WAY late in reading this series,
2) There are WAY better - and more eloquent - reviews out there than anything I could spew,
3) No one cares anyway.

At first I wasn't sure I was gonna like this.

Rose was quite the ice queen, who reminded me of...well...

...a certain someone...

But then?

I realized that, holy shite, I am absolutely this girl's NUMBER ONE FAN WHORE.


I mean, what's not to love?

description

HA!

Oh man, how could I NOT bow down to the brilliant, bitchy, sarcasm that was Rose?

description

Ahhhhh, warm and fuzzy, warmth and fuzz.

How you fill my soulless heart with your filter-less hostility and endless need to sanitize every surface.

And then you put her together with Connor? He of sexy the lap dance and the Prince of Calm Practicality?

description

Be still my unemotional, socially offensive heart.

In fact, fuck it - 5 STARS - you unreasonably businesslike duo - because I HEART you.

In fact, that's one of the things I think I dug the most about this book - aside from their constant bantering and push/pull - the fact that they were together - AS A COUPLE - for the entirety of the book.

The vast majority of our romance novels are about the main protagonists and their journey to GET together or get BACK together.

But here, we get to experience them being together for the whole book - which I just LOVED.

Because isn't that the whole point of romance? Reading about them together? In a relationship?

Well, it is for me.

But anylong-winded, I just loved that aspect of the book.

I also liked, loved ADORED how all the characters in the book so fiercly protected each other.

ESPECIALLY Ryke and Daisy.

And if those two don't end up togther?

I will CUT a bitch.

you're telling me that Mr. Richard Connor Cobalt, an alleged asexual dude who was like a "sponge" and wouldn't "notice if you hit on him", is actually what Christian Grey thinks he is but could never be???

description

biggest plot twist of 2020. imma show you guys a little preview as to why i am shook:

"You may compliment my cock, you may beg, and you may politely ask for more. I don't want to hear anything else and if I do, I'll stuff your mouth with your panties so you can't speak."


BRO- chill. i already have 1984398+ book boyfriends i can't handle more ?✋?and let's not forget the fact that he also... likes to... cHoKe...

... *sigh* alexa play E-GIRLS ARE RUINING MY LIFE! by CORPSE

guys you don't know how shook i was i mean this dude had me blushing and giggling- BLUSHING AND GIGGLING PEOPLE. i never do that. ever. what have i become?



ok ok enough simping for today. even though i've read more than half of the addicted series, i still felt like Rose and Connor weren't a couple there?? if that makes sense? i don't know i guess they weren't affectionate and all that and Rose kinda seemed ehh towards Connor. all they did was argue, Rose would glare at him and Connor would have that you're so cute face.

plot
↳ so this book is about the Calloway sisters + Lo, Ryke and Connor being in a reality show to revive their image after Lily's sex addiction was leaked. just like other books from the Addicted series, this is mostly character-based rather than plot-driven. there's some drama with Daisy and her boyfriend Julian, this Scott dude (producer of the show), etc.


CHARACTERS
Connor Cobalt (H)
didn't i say i was done simping? yeah that's a lie. sorry. ok so there's two sides when it comes to this dude:

here's the ?✨??? side:
"You're not a pit stop. You're my finish line. There's no one after you. I want you for eternity not for a brief moment in time."

and then there's this ? ?????side:
"It's time for you to shut the fuck up and put my cock back in your mouth."


that scene? rent free guys- RENT FREE.

so he's kinda a mix of Kaz Brekker and Dorian Havillard. is it the black hair, pale skin, blue/brown eyes thing? maybe. but it's also the whole being genius, cultured, out of my league, bougee vibes that these characters have. they are all so out of my league it's not even funny.

Rose Calloway (h)
"She was a genius on paper. But not a team player. She was quick to loathe others. But not against loving. She was a complicated equation that didn't need to be solved"

she's the kind of character where i'm like i don't know if i should fear her or WANT to be her . she's also a genius, she's stylish and trendy af AND she created her own business when she was 12-15 (ahh sorry i can't remember the age)?? goals. ugh i love her



she's definitely the mom of the group and not gonna lie, her being the kinkiest out of all the sister didn't surprise me. why? because it's always the innocent ones i swear!!

ROMANCE
honestly if you're boyfriend doesn't play fuck, marry, kill with you, banter in french, quoting jane eyre, seduce you through Shakespeare, will get high with you, and give up his dream because he'd rather have you in his life than be a CEO of his family's company... is he really your boyfriend?

im pretty sure these two are twin flames because they're so similar it's uncanny. ok so it's known that Connor doesn't "love" anyone because he thinks love is relative whatever that means so even after they've been dating for a year, he hasn't said "i love you" to Rose but you know what? i'm okay with that (kinda?) because it was satisfying and sweet when he finally said it. i guess it was also satisfying when they FINALLY fucking did it because yes, they've been dating for a year but they were never intimate. i like how Rose explored what she likes in bed and is open with anything. ahhh i don't know i guess i just like the trust these two have for one another in any sense.

DISLIKES??
OKAY ok hold your horses. this is more of a me thing than anything else.

not gonna lie, i wasnt 100% into the book until like 41% aka the scene where they all find out Connor doesn't love Rose - or is incapable of feeling love. now THAT is when i started getting hooked and i know this because i was procrastinating. y’all know how i determine when i'm hooked with a book? when i procrastinate. first 40 ish%? i was studying. after that, i was straight up procrastinating because it FINALLY started to get interesting.

also, i just wish they weren't a couple and this book starts off with them being enemies and THEN they become a couple because enemies to friends to mutual pining to lovers duh and i love reading good developments. like, i wanted to see the first time Rose said "i love you" and Connor was like uhhh i don't, their first date, their first kiss, their first everything. so yeah that's why i was kind of bored in the beginning.

AND its weird reading this in order even though the books are probably published differently but there's some inconsistencies that bug me like they're doing a drinking game in front of Lo and they NEVER do that before because duh recovering alcoholic and then apparently now Lo and Lily are having sex all the time when the book before this (Addicted for Now), they barely had sex in 1 week. but now they cant seem to stop touching each other?? wut?? and Rose hated her mother and even screamed at her and the mom even slapped Rose but suddenly she loves and respects her mother now?? wut?

OTHER THOUGHTS
— Connor and Ryke hating each other? yesss love it when my boyfriends fight.
— love the drama between Daisy, Ryke and Julian. now its Ryke's turn to be jealous karmas a bitch ?
— they did it more than 3x her first time? girl, is her... you know... okay?
— when Connor thinks of everyone as his family AWWWWW.
— Rose reminds me of my mother oh god.


* * *

now, the question you've all been waiting for... can you read this without reading Addicted?? ehhh to be honest if you're like me and wanna know everything then i suggest reading the order it's suggested on the website, but if you're lazy (also like me) i guess you can just read this series??

man, i don't know. i guess if you're half lazy half fomo, just skim the Addicted series to the RoseConnor and DaisyRyke scenes.

anyways, i went into this series wanting to read about Connor but NOW my most anticipated read is DaisyRyke's book. im reading it right now and... well.. im currently procrastinating so i guess im more hooked with their book than this one.

*** FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED - SPOILER FREE ***

"You're not a pit stop. You're my finish line. There's no one after you… I want you for eternity, not for a brief moment in time."

WOW. WOW. W-O-W.

This is one of the most addictive series I have EVER read!! And it just keeps on getting better and better. Krista & Becca Ritchie have outdone themselves. Every single word was brilliant. The Addicted series is without a doubt one of THE best New Adult romance series out there. It has everything in spades -- fantastic writing, an original plot line, and characters you can't help but fall in love with.

READ THESE BOOKS, GUYS!!!!!!

 

I'll be honest. It took me a long time to be able to process my thoughts on this book into actual words. For the first several hours after reading, the only thing running through my mind was along the lines of...

ZOMGTHESEBOOKSAREFUCKINGAMAZING
YOUALLHAVETOREADTHEMNOWWWWWW!!!

... but clearly, I needed to come up with something better than that so here goes:

 

Virgin. Sex addict. Daredevil. Alcoholic. Smartass. Jackass. 

In the first three books of this series, we were introduced to Lily & Lo as the main couple, but also got to know Ryke & Daisy, and Connor & Rose as side characters, and in Kiss The Sky, the spotlight was turned onto Connor and Rose. I'd been looking forward to their story ever since I first met them. Kiss The Sky was easily one of my most highly anticipated book releases and it blew me away!!! 

In the aftermath of the scandal that went public at the end of last book, Rose needed to find a way to paint her family in a better light or risk losing her business, Calloway Couture, and everything that she'd worked for. So she decided to sign her and her five friends up to star in a reality TV show. This meant that Lily, Lo, Daisy, Ryke, and her and Connor would be living together and filmed for 6 months by three cameramen who followed them around day and night.

"6 people + 6 months + 3 cameramen + 1 reality show = infinite drama. I've done the math."

While all six friends featured heavily in this story, the main focus of this book was on Rose and Connor. We saw everything through their eyes. We saw what happened in their past that shaped them into the people they were now, we saw what drove them, and what scared them, and what they wanted most.

Honestly, it was absolutely fascinating to see the world through their perspective, especially the way they saw each other. Connor understood Rose in a way that no one else did. He saw through her walls and right into her heart.

"Rose Calloway was different. She was fashionable. But not a sorority girl. She was a genius on paper. But not a team player. She was quick to loathe others. But not against loving them. She was a complicated equation that didn't need to be solved."

Rose saw the real him too but...could only see as much of him as he chose to show to the world. Despite caring deeply for her, he found it hard to express his true feelings in so many words. But he and Rose somehow just worked perfectly together. It was so fun to see them verbally spar back and forth. They were competitive, but in the best way.

"He wears confidence like his most expensive suit, with style and dignity and so much charm. I immediately want to combat him, to match him smile for smile, grin for grin, word for word."

They were such a unique pair. Connor was the only guy who'd ever been able to truly handle Rose without either getting overruled or turned away. He was neither stronger nor weaker than her. He was her perfect match.

"I'm not the hero.
I'm the king to Rose's queen."

But here was the twist to their relationship -- they were equals on every level, except sex. Rose was a genius, a strong, confident woman in charge of her world, but she was also a virgin in completely over her head because in this one respect, Connor had a definite upper hand. Luckily though, being the amazing person that he was, he never once pushed her beyond her comfort zone.  I loved the way he waited for her and was endlessly patient. It made me melt. He knew all along what she wanted but was willing to wait for her to realize it herself.

"You're safe with me, you know that, Rose?… I won't ever hurt you."

And ho-ly HOTNESS, guys!! I have to say that while I didn't see it coming in the previous books, there was a kinky twist to Connor that just fit his personality so perfectly and had me fanning myself for pages on end.

"I think we both know there's only one dominant here."

Oh yeahhh!!! :D

But if anything can best describe Connor, I think it's this one quote:

"My power is in my confidence.
It's that simple.
Their belief that it's something more - that it's something greater - is what makes the effect so strong. They need me to be their sturdy unbending fortress.
So I am here."

In this book, they had so much to deal with -- their relationship, Lily & Lo's relationship (and the aftermath of the events of the first books), how her business was doing, etc -- all of this on it's own would have been a lot of it's own but add in a reality show to the mix -- where every single moment of their lives was caught on film and broadcasted to the world by a producer whose apparent life's mission was just to fuck with them -- and you have a situation brimming with tension, angst and heightened emotion.

Overall, this series truly has one of THE best ensemble casts I've ever read. The character dymanics are just GOLD and the dialogue is fantastic. Every little interaction between the cast just shone.

The WRITING was fantastic. I adore these authors' style. It's smart, snappy and just draws you IN. There is not a single wasted word and I absolutely loved it. I swear, half my book is highlighted.

"As she rests on my lap, something strong grips my heart. I've never been so possessed by another person before. She consumes my body and mind in ways that I can't articulate."

The whole story was built on this complex network of all the entwined relationships -- some were new, some were built over years, some were bonded by blood, and others were bonded by love. Everything was so multi-layered, and there were so many stories happening at once that were all connected, all linked. It was fascinating. Exciting. Addicting. Compelling. It was romantic. Steamy. Emotional. Beautiful.

But, just as with the first books in the series, I have to applaud the authors because never once did I feel like anything went overboard. Every single event, every piece of drama made perfect sense for the story. It fit. No eye-rolling or Kindle-throwing. The entire story was well paced and meticulously planned out.

I love getting lost in these characters' world and I absolutely love each one of these main characters. I love their insecurities, flaws, and strengths. I love how despite having their misunderstanding and disagreements within each other, they are always united against an outside threat. They support each other, have each others' back. They protect each other.

"These five people mean more to me than words can express. I've never once felt like I had a real family.
But with them - I know I do."

Some lines were so hit me so strongly that out of nowhere, I'd just find tears running down my face...

"We'd be the walls that shield these terrible events from them. We can endure the pain for however long they need to heal."


Without a doubt, this is one of the most addictive series I have ever read. I loved every single word and read this book as slowly as I could trying to make the story last as long as possible. I didn't want it to end. Some books are worth losing sleep over. This is one of those.

The Addicted series truly stands out in the New Adult romance world. Krista and Becca Ritchie keep raising the bar. This is one of those series that started out strong, and just keeps getting stronger. It's truly one-of a kind. There is nothing else even remotely close to this out out there. THIS is a series to watch for.

Rating: 5 stars!!!


*** TIMELINE EXPLANATION & READING ORDER ***

Now, regarding the reason why I think these book should be read in order.... A huge part of why I am so in love with and so addicted to this series is because I know these characters. I've been through their ups and downs, I've seen their struggles and triumphs, and so each new development in their story has a lot of meaning to me. Everything carries more weight because I know what these guys have been through to get where they are. In my opinion, these characters deserve to have their story appreciated to the max, and that will come with reading the books in order.

That being said, you can start with this book. It's written in such a way that allows that and, at the end of the day, it's really up to you.

 

If it helps to know...

The Addicted series has a core ensemble cast of 3 guys and 3 girls: Lily & Lo, Rose & Connor, and Ryke & Daisy (though their relationship is not yet official).

✦ The first three books (Addicted To You, Ricochet, Addicted For Now) complete one story arc (Lily & Lo's) so they have their own, happy & resolved ending after Addicted For Now.

✦ Then this book (Kiss The Sky) continues that storyline but from a different perspective (Rose & Connors) and while it focuses on their story, it also continues the journey of all the main characters that we've been introduced to. It has it's own HEA.

✦ The next book (Hothouse Flower) will be the same deal but it'll focus on a different couple (Ryke & Daisy).

✦ Then the last two books (Thrive & Addicted After All) will go back to focusing on Lily & Lo and will have the big series finale ending.

It is perfectly safe to jump in and start reading this series now. You will not be left hanging! I promise. Cross my heart. No cliffhangers where the story is at now! And - please please please start reading these books, guys. They are just wonderful!!! :D

This book was 300 pages too long.

Ivy league educated characters who all need some native intelligence. Rose and Connor supposedly are tough when, in reality, they're simply TSTL. With the sum total of the characters' net worth, they could have bought their own production company which begs the question of why they allowed- creepy- Scott to have any sort of leverage over them.

Je suis desole, ce livre est ridicule.

"Kiss the sky with me, and don't ever come down."

(I've read this together with sis Beatrice. Click her name to see her lovely review. :))

description

This beautiful continuation of the Addicted series couldn't get any better! I just love it! In this book, we see more of the genius lovers Rose Calloway and Connor Cobalt. And like the first books in the series, their team-up and chemistry were just totally good!

description

What I loved about Kiss the Sky is that it's totally refreshing. I haven't read a book that basically shows the characters' strengths and flaws through a reality TV show. Reading this book made me feel like I'm basically watching Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Only this book features Princesses of Philly which is the name of the Calloway sisters' reality TV show. Like, seriously how amazing is that? :)

The romance in this book was so much better! There were times when I can't help but grin from ear to ear because of the characters' swoony and entertaining dialogues and interactions-- especially the sexy banters! And there were times when I try not to burst out laughing because of the funny scenes.

There were also a lot of dramas that happened in this book. But unlike the previous books, they were just light. And oh, the smexy scenes... who can't resist them when they focus on the virgin perfectionist and the smartass hero?

description

The writing, as always, was brilliant and real. Krista and Becca Ritchie totally nailed a New Adult novel that has it all. Literally. Hands down to these amazing authors! I will definitely read the next books in this series. :)

Note: Don't read this if you haven't read these books yet: Addicted to You, Ricochet, and Addicted for Now.

FIRST TIME FREEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! http://amzn.to/1WleYuX

6 OH MY GOD, I LOVE ROSE AND CONNOR STARS!!!!

You’re not a pit stop. You’re my finish line. There’s no one after you.


Kiss the Sky is a spin off from the Addicted series. You do not need to read the Addicted series to understand Kiss the Sky, HOWEVER, many things will be revealed from the Addicted series, so I strongly suggest, you read Addicted to You, Ricochet and Addicted for Now

Kiss the Sky was NOTHING WHAT I EXPECTED… Kiss the Sky is SO MUCH MORE. I loved it, start to finish, and when I was done reading… I wanted to reread it again.

There are many things I loved about this series, so let me list a few:

- Set in present tense, meaning Kiss the Sky picks up right where Addicted for Now left off. YES! The author (sisters) could have flashback and rewrote the first two books just in Connor and Rose’s POV, but the authors never did that. This is amaze balls.

- Connor, yup, one word. He stole the book, he stole the show. I can’t believe I wasn’t crushing on him in the previous books! Oh my god, to get into his head and read what he was thinking. He is soo… eloquent, refined and polished. He will seduce you with his words and it will make your heart swoon.

I want you for eternity, not for a brief finish line.
There's no one after you.


Connor = ALPHA = SEXY = SMART = Arrogant = YUMMY = FUN TIMES = YES = YES = YES!!!!

- You still get bits and glimpses of the gang, Daisy, Ryke, Lo and Lily. YAY!

- The plot! The whole gang is on a reality show (kind of like real world) and they all live together in one house, including, Rose’s ex-boyfriend!!! Oh what a juicy story does that make?!

- I love the cover!

I really loved the story line. I love it when a couple is together, but it’s not the couple against each other, it’s the couple against the world. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, that’s exactly the type of book I LOVE TO READ! Connor and Rose have a somewhat up and down relationship, they have broken up and gotten back together many times. Rose is still a virgin and she has been dating Connor for one year. Now, both Rose and Connor kind of get more aggressive towards each other.

I love the way he’s staring at me. It makes me feel more than just beautiful. I feel like I’m his. Like no one else could possibly compare to me. He doesn’t even have to say the words. I see it in his eyes. I can practically read it in his mind.


There’s plenty of stuff that goes on to create tension, Rose and Connor are still the responsible ones in the house, where they take care of everyone, especially Lily and Lo, but both Rose and Connor are pretty stressed out with their current commitments. Connor is going to grad school, managing his Mom’s company and is trying to help Rose become more comfortable sexually (oooOOo la la la). Rose is dealing with her crazy mom, her company and trying to open a bit more towards Connor. Oh and then there’s the ex!

I love it when the crazy ex is in the picture (only when the Heroine has no interest in him). Rose tries hard to push Scott (her ex) away, but Scott is pretty much around and in everyone’s business. He’s the perfect villain to love and hate in the book. You want Scott to stir up trouble just to read the juicy bits and there’s plenty to gobble up.

MY FAVORITE parts of the book are the intimate moments Connor and Rose share. Oh my gosh, sexual tension to the max! I love a good clit tease and there’s plenty of it. You can really read the emotions Connor and Rose feel for each other. Connor is so freaking dominate, that after you read one intimate scene, you will need to change your panties (just keeping it real ladies). This alone is a good reason why you need to read this book. I wouldn’t call this book too steamy, but when you get to those scenes, well let’s just say it’s about quality, not quantity.

People hope to touch the sky. I dream of kissing it.


Audio Questions:

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would 100% recommend this audiobook to a friend. Do you want me to put my hand on the bible and swear it? Because I will. I LOVED IT! It was enjoyable from the first words to the last. I couldn’t get enough. EVERYONE will be very happy happy when they listen.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Connor. Connor. Connor. Did I not mention CONNOR? The authors created such an incredibly Hero. He’s so desirable and I loved every bit of him in the book. I love his confidence, the way he speaks and his love for his girlfriend, Rose. I also loved reading his inner monologues and the issues he has with the pressures and stress he faces in the book. He is simply PERFECT.

Have you listened to any of Mark Boyett and Therese Plummer ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is my first Mark Boyett narration. I found his voice a little softer than Lo and most Heroes I listen to. But his voice did fit Connor. Mark’s voice is firm, yet strong. It’s not deep, but when he speaks in French, oh it will make your panties melt. I loved those parts. This is my first Therese Plummer narration as well. She conveyed Rose completely. I loved listening to her emotions. I loved it when she was trying to firm, anxious and even silly. I felt like I fell in love with Rose a little more because of the narration.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Connor and Rose, being witty has never been more sexy.
