⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! Still, book 2 of 2. The beyond epic, lyrically told, conclusion to Grip & Bris’s spell-binding love saga!

“Still?” she asks with a watery smile.
“Yeah.” Always. Evermore. Even after. “Still.”

Books in the Grip duet should be read in order:

I want a love with no walls.

I have one word to describe Still: PERFECTION. There was nothing I didn’t love about this book. In fact, it’s the best book I’ve read so far in 2017. It consumed me. I laid down to read it and read for 5 straight hours, cover to cover. It’s one of the most emotional books I’ve read and gave me ALL THE FEELS!

Grip and Bristol are a couple that defy all the odds being together. They’re a couple that most people on the outside don’t understand

Loved this more than Grip (the first book) and it’s the first time I’ve ever found the second book in a duet to be better than the first.

While the first book was about them finally getting together (that’s an oversimplification- the book tackles a lot of issues about racial inequality) the second was about the journey that they have ahead of them. What happens after the “ever after”.

It was emotionally exhausting but worth it.

I don't even know what to say or how to say it in order to

My review thoughts for STILL:

I have read many, many romance novels over the years and there are few that take my breath away and my emotions to such an intense level that the story stays with me, the characters become so real that they don’t leave me. STILL is one of those stories. I met Grip and Bristol in FLOW, the prequel, and fell in complete and utter love with them in GRIP. I experienced the issues of race
Jessica ❥Chatterbooks Book Blog❥
The Grip series by Kennedy Ryan is one of the most unique, thought provoking, poignant, and compelling romance series I have ever read. Flow began my love affair with these characters, Grip pulled me in deep, and Still consumed me completely! This book was not what I thought it was going to be. I assumed based on the previous installments that what was to come would be similar to what I had read thus far. While that was true, it also took a turn that I never would have expected.

I've followed Grip and Bristol since they were introduced in Soul, the two books about Rhyson and Kai where they were secondary characters. What a journey Grip and Bristol have been on and it concludes in this phenomenal book STILL. I was one of those who was left wanting more of Gripstol when I finished Grip, so I was pretty darn happy when Kennedy Ryan announced STILL.

I'm not going to dive too much into the storyline cause I don't want to give anything away. If you're a true Gripstol fan STILL

Review & Excerpt at Of Pens and Pages.

My heart speeds up every time I think of Bristol and Grip, the poems, their love, and of STILL. This book made me shed so much tears—joy, pain, sadness, you name it. But it also made me smile so much. I don’t think words will ever be enough to convey my love for this series.

STILL shows us what life is like for Grip and Bristol after GRIP. Despite their busy schedules—with Grip going on tour and venturing in new projects in music and

I can't even with this, so I'll just bullet-point it for you:
* I swooned harder than I've ever swooned.
* I laughed so hard I dropped my iPad.
* I cried so hard I couldn't breathe or see in a fashion I've never done in a book before.
* I giggled like a school girl.
* I fanned my face like I was on the face of the Sun.
* I felt my heart crack into a hundred thousand pieces ...
* And then felt it heal with the strength that only true love can manage.

Best of 2017! This book!!! Absolutely amazing. There’s not enough stars, no words to describe it.😩😩😩😩. I'm legit sitting here at my laptop trying to figure out just how I can write a review worthy of such a read. I don't believe I've ever highlighted so much, felt so much, hurt so much, thought so much. This book did it.

"When we are alone, you and I, through years, through pain, my heart will answer again and again, still."

When I found out Grip and Bristol would have a part
"Anything that ended would never be enough for a love like ours. A love like ours is only satisfied by forever.”


I'm not going to speak on the storyline with this review. I don't want to give anything away, especially since I've been recommending this series to everyone and threatening bodily harm if they don't read it. :)


But like I said in my review for book 1, Grip, I want to bow at Kennedy's feet. This woman was born to write.

4.5 stars!

If Grip was angsty and intense, Still is emotional and heartbreaking.

I should have known going into this book based on the person who recommended it to me *ahem* CHRISTY *ahem* how utterly tender and heartbreaking this book would be. Christy is the Queen of the ugly cry books and I don't know why I didn't remember that.

Anyways, this book was beautiful. I thought Bristol and Grip's story had wrapped up pretty well in the book before, but this one was a look into the happily ever aft

Easy 5 stars. No brainer.
Love really does conquer all.

my 180th book of the year!! i couldnt have felt more blessed to have closed the decade with one of the most beautiful love stories in fiction.

“a love like ours is only satisfied by forever.”

nothing couldve prepared me for what happened in this book. since this was supposedly an extension of the epilogue we got in GRIP, i was expecting it'd all be sunshines and rainbows. i was WRONG. this book hit me like a TORNADO.

5, "Don't waste time when you know it's real," stars!

Sometimes with fiction you want to escape, and sometimes you want to feel. Still, and the two books you need to read before it Flow & Grip, are books that without a doubt demand that you feel when you're reading them. If there really is such a thing as "meant to be," Kennedy Ryan captured it with Grip and Bristol. An interracial couple who love each other for what's inside and not out. Because of Grip's fame and Bristol's proximity to it, they

This story was poignant… passionate… emotionally consuming… perfect. I wasn’t sure how Kennedy Ryan could improve on the perfection that was Grip. I was already enamored and thoroughly satisfied with the way Bristol and Grip’s story concluded. But after reading Still, I’m now even more in love and enchanted by this couple.

This book. Wow. I don't think that I can fully explain how I feel about Still, these characters, and this story.

I thought that Grip and Bristol's relationship couldn't get any better, but I was very, very wrong. Everything you loved about Flow and Grip is magnified and amplified in Still. I feel like those books told the story of Bristol and Grip's emotional journey to find each other, while Still is the story of growing and nurturing that love in the face of life's most challenging situat

I have reached my quota of reading emotional books. It was a bad idea reading this in a public transportation (in spite of the heads up given to me). I was an EMOTIONAL MESS. Grip and Bristol may be officially together but this finale is just the beginning of their journey as they met trials and inevitable situations that test them as a couple and as individuals.

It's no question Bristol Gray and Marlon "Grip" James love each other. They are the endgame and I'm proud how strong and mature they'v

I’m speechless after finishing this book, it’s absolutely brilliant! I’m one of those readers who clamor for more Bristol and Grip. Overjoyed when Kennedy decided to write Still and it became one of my anticipated releases this year and she didn’t disappoint. Kennedy didn’t write just for the sake of writing a sequel but she wrote this book with finesse; her words are heartwarming that will touch you to the core. It’s beautifully written through and through.

One of the most realist, flawlessly, educating books I have ever read. How does one function after reading this story? How does one touch life and love after reading this story?

I'm not sure.

It's truly unbelievably hard to be able to put into words that even make sense how unreal this story was for me. I have followed these characters from the start. And I mean from the start. I didn't know if Bristol was a character that could keep a man like Grip, and I didn't know if Grip was a character that

I loved this! The relationship and attraction between Grip and Bristol is so intense, that you feel yourself being completely consumed by them and their story! I laughed, cried, had my heart broken, and put back together! There is a part in the book that's so damn sweet, awesome and just perfect that you couldn't wipe the smile off my face!

I was hooked pretty early on with the easy flow of writing and the fun banter between the characters. I truly enjoyed every part of this book as it unfolded.

This book will forever be the standard that I compare all love stories from now on. It is not often that I fall more in love with two characters, or am surprised by the direction of their story, and by the passion and emotion it will draw from me. Grip and Bristols epic love story did exactly that and more for me. They had already charmed me and captured my heart from their struggle to be together in Grip.

Gah amazing just amazing, I honestly don’t know where to start with this review but this is the perfect ending for Grip and Bristol.

I’m going to keep this short and sweet as there’s no other way with this kind of read. Buttt this book is an epilogue if sorts, they are together throughout this read and you just FEEL their love and unity throughout. This is truly a book where their love is tested at times, but where they are a team together. Through thick and thin..

I usually don't have a difficult time writing a review for a book that I've read.....but other books weren't this one. Kennedy Ryan truly created a work of art with Still. You can tell that every ounce of her heart & soul went into making sure that Grip & Bristol's story was done in a way that truly honored the characters and how we have come to know them.

“And when the years have passed,
and we have watched a thousand sunsets,
and we are bent,
our bodies crooked with age
ask me again.
In the twilight,
in the shadow of the life we have shared,
ask me if I love you,
and my heart will answer before my lips can part.
My love, my life,
my heart never left your hands.
Always, evermore, even after.
“Ask me when your belly is full like the moon,
and our love has stretched your body with my child,
leaving your skin, once flawless,
now silvered, traced, scarred,
I will worship you.
My eyes will never stray.
My heart will never wander,
gladly leashed to you all my days.
I am fixed on you.”
