Now I get it! Grip by Kennedy Ryan. Review

Yesterday I told you how I did not like Flow. Now I get the hype!


***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’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.

Make sure you grab FLOW, the FREE prequel first! FLOW is chronicling the week of magical days and nights that will haunt Grip & Bristol for years to come. GRIP is the full-length conclusion of their story.



Warning: this won’t be a coherent review but a debauchery of feelings.

First 54 to 60% of the book I HATED it!
Because I can’t stand the trope “I love you but I’m afraid you’ll hurt me. So I keep rejecting you. I push you in other girl’s arms but then I hurt so much that I become a real b@tch.”
Sorry but I don’t do good with an overflow of angts. In a thriller or mystery yes. But angst about feeling and a war of love. A I push and pull. I can’t make up my mind?
NO! It drives me nuts!
I wanted to climb the walls.
I wanted to slap Bristol.
I was a raging beast (that’s no surprise everyone flew the home).
If you are an angst junkie this will be your own brand of drug I swear.
Kennedy Ryan trades is angst like Kelloggs sells cereals.

I also hated that Grip was fooling around.
I knew logically that Bristol pushing him away he was entitled to have some “fun”. But my heart did not get the message.
That stupid heart foolishly wants its men to be loyal. To pin for the female character and be monks as long as they don’t have her.
Silly I know but the heart wants what the hearts want.

So I would give 2 “too angsty” stars for my personal taste to the first 60%


Then Bristol finally saw the light! Alleluhja! We are getting somewhere.

I could not put it down. I gobbled up the last 40%.
I gave it a five stars for the second part.

Now I get it. But it took me some time to go there my friends!

So 60% with 2 stars and 40% with 5 stars we should be around 3,5 stars but I rounded the rating because Kennedy Ryan CAN writes! Even if she enrages me. On the other hand that’s also a sign or a good writer right?

Will I read Still?

You bet!

Have you read it? Loved it? Am I back in your good grace? 😉

Thanks for reading!
