Grip (Grip, #1)

***This is not a cliffhanger***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'...

    5 STARS!!!!! “My heart broke loose on the wind.” Poetic, inspiring, brilliant, and SO ROMANTIC, it’s no wonder Grip will be sitting on my favorites list of 2017. I absolutely loved this book! Bristol and Grip met eight years ago and connected right away. Everything came together in the one week they spent together (read the prequel, Flow and you’ll see), then it all fell apart. Their entire relationship changed. It’s been complicated ...
  • Danielle ❤️ Pretty Mess Reading ❤️
    **2 STARS**I should have never read this damn book.'s the thing book lovers. . . I don't know how most people will receive my review and I'm sick of being reported for my thoughts and opinions. Because of this, I will not post my review here because the whole thing is pretty messy . Instead, I'm going to leave the link to my review on my blog if you want to read it.

    #5+++ STARS #IAmGripped *IT'S LIVE*A signed PAPERBACK GIVEAWAY here--> is a STANDALONE love story with a prequel called FLOW.... It's a bravely written, intelligent story that has completely grabbed my heart, made me feel and attacked my sensibilities in the best possible way. This is the Kennedy Ryan affect.

    4.25 stars(My insomnia hates me. I've been up for 36 of the past 39 hours. Sorry the review is so short, but my brain is barely functional. Lol )What can I say about this story to let you know how amazing it really is? I am finding myself at a loss for words and if you know me, you know that doesn’t happen often. Grip is so much more than a love story. It is a love story, yes, but it focuses on so many other topics that make it even more comple...

    5 "A Best of 2017" Stars 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...
  • Rachel Reads Ravenously
    5 stars! “I fell for her before the beat dropped.” First things first, before you read Grip you need to read the book Flow, which is FREE. So go and download that first. I’ll wait……….. You’re done now? Okay keep reading then.This is the story of Bristol and Grip, two people who met and fell for each other years ago. Now Grip is one of the top rising musicians in the world and Bristol is his manager, but they aren’t together. Gr...

    5 million stars!!!Review at Of Pens and Pages.Review for Flow.Flow and Grip completely blew me away. It’s been days since I finished this beautiful, beautiful story, and I haven’t been able to pick up a book and enjoy it. I’m still reeling in my seat at how beautifully written was this book! This lyrical prose is brutally honest, and everything was painted so vividly and real; it was inevitable I fell in love with it. Definitely a top read ...

    Genre: Contemporary RomanceType: Book 1 of 2 from Grip SeriesPOV: First Person - DualRating: In eight years since they first met, a lot had happened that changed both Marlon (Grip) James and Bristol Gray's lives. He's a rapper on the verge or superstardom and she's the manager that would propel his fame. But behind their professional facade, there were still hurt and longing from the past that they needed to face for any hope of a future togethe...

    “If I break your heart, I break mine.” I’m apologizing right now for the amount of gushing coming your way and the amount of quotes I’m about to share. But I can’t help it. It’s very rare for me to pick up a book or series with the hype I have seen for this one and for me to actually understand what all the fuss is about. But WOW. Kennedy knocked me off my feet. The romance, the steam, the humor, the issues regarding race she delves ...
  • Karla
    5 stars! If I thought “Flow” the prequel to “Grip” was a good start this it had nothing one this one. We start 8 yrs after the what happened in “flow” with Bristol/Grip now in their new relationship not just as friends but working together. This series is turning up to be so addictive I was so caught up with the complex relationship between these characters. But even loving it I have to say a good part of this book I found myself frus...
  • RentasticReads
    OH MY GOD, THIS BOOK!!! There's not enough stars in the galaxy of this world to give Grip and Bristol any justice. I'm drowning in feels. I'm an ugly mess of emotions. This will most definitely be one of my top favorite books and couples of all time. I am shook. I can't even form the perfect words to describe how this book truly made me feel. I just knew I never wanted it to end. *sniffles*Full review to come! (A review worthy enough for GripStol...

    5 “The chemistry” Stars “ We only had a week together, but the conversation, the connection—I never had it with anyone else before or since. It is real, and real is so rare, you can’t ignore it when you find it. You don’t give up on it.” After keep hearing from this series in Steph’s Youtube Channel (If you love romance, seriously check her out, you will find about books you had never hear from before💕) I had to read and verify...

    6++++ Gripping beautiful Stars Can I just say Contemporary Romance has got to be one of my favourite genres, the storytelling I love love love everything about it. Add that with Kennedy Ryan's mind this one ticked all my boxes and gave me the flutters in my stomach I thrive on feeling when I'm reading an epic read. In the best possible way I'm not going to tell you what it's about in a matter of speaking cause frankly you as readers need to HOLD ...

    "Don’t you feel how connected we are?” I ask. “If I break your heart, I break mine.” A sweet smile spreads over her lips and she nods. ❤ OMFG 😍😍😍 I'm literally on the pink clouds right now... MARLON *sigh* 😋 I loved everything, I mean every freaking thing about him. ❤
  • Olga therebelreader
    Grip was just incredible. God, this story.... I'm steel reeling. I just finished it a mere hours ago and I'm still not over it. I don't think I will be for days. The writing was so, so good. Some moments were really intense. The characters where strong, emotions were present, and they behaved like normal people! And I felt like I could feel everything Grip and Bristol were going through. I fell in love with Grip, the lead male character. I loved ...

    After finishing the prequal to this book, I just had to jump into this one right away. I really think you should read "Flow" before you start this one ;)Grip and Bristol made quite and impression on me in "Flow" and I wanted to know what the author had in store for them next.It has been 8 years since Grip and Bristol spend a week together. Grip is up and coming famous rapper now and Bristol has done, what she always wanted to do. She has starte...

    Excellent!!! I listened to this during a road trip! One of my favorites this year.

    3.5 StarsOverall Opinion: The prequel had sucked me right in, and I was eager to find out what happened with these two. I liked the push/pull dynamics...for a bit — but then they got old. I wanted to shake the h! The H was awesome, and he obviously cared so much about her! I connected enough to get emotional, and I was happy when they finally got together. They were pretty hot together too! I guess I was being greedy again and wanted more of th...

    Grip is like poetry in motion. Every word flows articulately beautiful from start to finish. No wonder I’m experiencing some book hangover. I just love how the story of Grip and Bristol was written. Bristol Gray the independent, strong willed heroine who will do everything to protect the one she loves. She has a successful career in managing up and coming artist and has everything money can buy, but she doesn’t want that, Bristol wants someon...

    The story reads like a movie . . powerful and intoxicating ... and sinfully sexy. GRIP has everything—dynamic characters, soulful plot, and a lesson at the end that will change the way you look at life. One of my favorite reads this year. Maybe ever. 5 massive, gripping stars from me!

    "Find time to read this book. Don't put it on the TBR and get to it later...make time for it NOW. It was amazing... something important and special. When romance is relevant that is when it shines the brightest. I haven't read anything this compelling and unput-downable in a long time." –- Jay Crownover, New York Times Bestselling AuthorGRIP, A STANDALONE love story, is LIVE!!Amazon US: Universal:
  • Malene_D *BadAndDirtyBooks*
    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 g...
