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???

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!

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.


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

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.

I mean— wtf kind of chemicals were put in this book. Krista & Becca Ritchie.. explain yourselves. This entire book was PHENOMENAL. Rose & Connor are the most interesting, sophisticated and intelligent people I have ever read about.. and the SPICY SCENES?? kill me, I wasn’t FULLY READY for the man that is Connor MFFFF Cobalt. A true match, a full on power couple. And the dynamic of having a reality show for the core six? genius. The ending destroyed me in the BEST MOST AMAZING way possible, and t ...more

It resurrected the series for me especially cause I wasn’t a huge fan of the first 3 books.

Rose and Connor are AMAZING. The confidence, the arrogance, the banter, the chemistry HOLY CRAP every page was A1 from the start.

The ending KILLED MEEEEE I was so happy 😭😭😭

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!

No, no, no and no.
I've started this serie because everyone told me that the book about Rose was fantastic.
Instead it was one of the worst NA that I ever read(and for those who know what I've read this is a big statement).
So, Rose and Connor, my most liked characters of this serie, what could possible go wrong?
This book seemed to take all my most hated tropes, mixed them together and adding a little something to make me hate it even more.
Let's start with the easy, shall we?

She glances at me once, and her eyes immediately flit away. "We have towels, Richard." She points a manicured nail to the rack. "Terrycloth. Soft. Inviting. You might want to try one out."
The corners of my lips rise. "It's just a cock, Rose," I say. "You'd enjoy it inside of you."

"You're not a pit stop. You're my finish line."

Ever since meeting Rose Colloway and Connor Cobalt in the Addicted-series, I've been fascinated by this perfectly matched yet constantly arguing couple. To say that I was looking forward to reading this book would be an understatement. Kiss the Sky was one of my most highly anticipated releases of 2014 and I can honestly say it fully lived up to my expectations!

This book was on my top 10 highly anticipated reads of 2014, and it’s not entirely because of how much I adored Lil and Lo. I was genuinely invested

kbr put fucking crack in this book because i could not put it down!!! i read this book in a day. IN A DAY. with all my tabbing, annotations and highlighting. OBSESSED would be putting it lightly. i love rose&connor with my whole heart. the “rivals to lovers” trope will never get old, especially when they never lose their banter!!! and just connor being so obsessed with rose and wanting to do anything for her to make her happy <3333

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

This book will never not be a 5 star read for me. Sometimes you come across a book that will stay with you forever and the Calloway Sisters series is that for me.

Rose and Connor are THE power couple and I will always compare every other power couple to them. Rose is the an ice queen to everyone outside her family but she has like the biggest heart. She's one of the most empowering female characters I've read about and I love and admire her so much.

“You have to help me,” she says between kisses.
Help. She’s asking for help. A girl who struggled to take my college blazer to hide a stain is willingly opening her arms to me—to us. “All I’ve ever wanted to do was be on your team, Rose.”

💎 they're both ICONIC. so unique, so unlike any other book couple. rounding up for that 🤍

💎 i low-key thought Connor was going to be insufferable in his POV, but i actually liked him a lot. there's just something about men who talk about their women

Here's more of what's to come in Kiss the Sky.

Opening of Kiss the Sky (Rose's POV):

"You know the stories where the strong, brawny man struts into a room with his head high, his chest puffed, and his stocky shoulders pulled back—he’s the king of the jungle, the big man on campus, the one who quivers girls’ knees. He carries an air of unwarranted superiority for the pure fact that he has a dick, and he knows it. He expects the girl to go tongue-tied and agree to his every demand.

Since addicted to you, I was already in love with both of them because they catch my interest and wanted to read their book so bad. And now that I finally read theirs, I won’t shut up about this freaking book. Like how can you not fall in love with these two?! The spicy scenes in this book !! It really took me by surprise especially from Connor Cobalt like hello??

Rose Callaway has been offered a chance to save her dream; Calloway Couture, one that she has worked so hard for. As quick as the success came, it was all taken away just because of the bad press her family received when news came out that her younger sister, Lily, is a sex addict, not that she ever would even think to blame her. So when the opportunity arose, she took the chance to get their fa

“People hope to touch the sky. I dream of kissing it.” - Connor Cobalt

Logical and intelligent, Connor Cobalt looks at world in a very practical way. Controlled in obsessively compulsive way, Rose Calloway is embodiment of independent and ambitious woman. However, still a virgin, Rose is afraid to give herself to any man, even to her long-term boyfriend Connor. Two people who don't know defeat, who always want to win at everything.
