Series Review | Grip by Kennedy Ryan

Last month I picked up my first Kennedy Ryan book, and by the end of the month I had read four books from her and now consider her a favorite author. If you’re looking for a romance author who perfectly balances emotional and difficult topics, including the difficulties of interracial dating, and soul-crushing chemistry and devotion, look no further.

This was a perfect introduction to Grip and Bristol. This novella is set 8 years prior to the first full length novel. We get to see their first interactions and see how they fit into each other’s world, with Grip being Bristol’s twin brother’s best friend. They immediately have a connection and chemistry that I can wait to see explored. I enjoyed this snapshot of their relationship before we see the development in the first book.

Grip and Bristol have taken over my life.

I haven’t been able to read anything else for the past two days and I’m planning on picking up Still as soon as I finish writing my review. Their chemistry is so genuine and electric. I love seeing how their relationship has developed and the deep care, respect, and love they have for each other. After putting in the work for years, Grip has now made it as one of the biggest names in Rap, and Bristol is now him manager. The two work closely and gradually develop feelings. I loved seeing how incredibly fleshed out the world and characters are – they are so well realized with so much dimesion.

Kennedy Ryan is quickly becoming a favorite author because I’ve loved everything I’ve read from her so far and I couldn’t be happier because my life is infinitely better having read Grip and Bristol’s story.

Still by Kennedy Ryan

Still (Grip, #2)

Rating: ★★★★★

This series wrecked me in the absolute best way. Grip and Bristol are one of my new favorite couples and Kennedy Ryan is an auto-read author now. We saw Grip and Bristol really build a strong foundation for their relationship and their devotion is both tested and fortified in this story. I was crying my eyes out for the last part of the book but I couldn’t put it down. Grip and Bristol’s journey was so wonderful and their relationship development was superb. I cannot recommend this series enough.
