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

Jul 07, 2017 rated it did not like it  ·  review of another edition
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.

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!

"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!

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

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.

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

OMG! OMG! OMG! That was basically all I could say while reading this book. This series just gets better and better with each book and these are not small books. Each book is 400+ pages, but it never feels long. There's always so much going on that when I get to the end I'm always left wanting more and more addicted than before.

This book focused on and was told from both Rose and Connor's POVs. But as we've become accustomed to and love so much, we can't leave out Lily & Lo and Daisy & R

I enjoyed this more the second time around, maybe because I knew what to expect. And the only qualms I had were personal preferences. It was nothing to do with the writing or the characters. I still loved both! I'm just not a fan of love triangles... and even though Rose was nowhere near interested Scott, I wish he hadn't been constantly hanging around. I'm also not a fan of reality television :/ So

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

Connor Cobalt is dedicated, ambitious, rude, calculating, manipulative, and sexy as hell.

Rose Calloway is beautiful, caring, loving, protective, driven, self motivated, and a virgin.

I have gotten to know these two pretty well over the last few days while I have been binge reading this series. But let me tell you if think you know Connor Cobalt you are wrong…

Let’s get this out real fucking quick: This book, this man, this story stole my heart. I know it’s been a lucrative year for me, good book wise, but that’s because I’ve surrounded myself with people who truly know me, my tastes, my obsessions, and, most importantly, my dislikes. And, while this has been on my TBR for probably a couple years, I never took the plunge. Why is that, you ask? All because of the reason I mentio

Rose Calloway makes a deal to have her life filmed to make a reality tv show, that would help bring back some of the reputation Calloway family business lost from the recent scandal and help her own struggling fashion line. However, there is a price to pay, to help her business and her father's company she has to sacrifice her and her five closest friend's privacy
