JARED

If I had a dollar for every time Banner Morales made my heart skip a beat…

The heart everyone assumes is frozen over.

Her anger is…arousing.

Every glare from those fire-spitting eyes, every time she grits her teeth,

gets me…well, you know.

If I had a dollar for every time she’s put me in my place, I’d be an even richer man.

I’m a successful sports agent because I assume “no” means you’ll think about it.

I’m sure what you meant to say is “Coming right up.”

They say even rich men don’t always get what they want,

but those men don’t know how to play the game. The trick is to keep them guessing.

Take Banner. She assumes she’s winning, but this game?

She doesn’t even know how to play.

BANNER

If I had a dollar for every time Jared Foster broke my heart, I’d have exactly one dollar.

One night. One epic fail. One dollar…and I’m out.

I’ve moved on.

I’ve found success in a field ruled by men.

Anything they can do, I have done better.

They can keep the field while I call the shots, blocking them when I have to.

And Jared has the nerve to think he gets a second chance?

Boy, please. Go sit down. Have several seats.

I’ll just be over here ignoring the man carved from my fantasies with a lust-tipped chisel.

Oh, I didn’t say the struggle wasn’t real.

But I’ve got that one dollar, and Jared won’t have me.

My Book Review

 

I am always a MAJOR fanatic of Kennedy Ryan’s books! Her words are so poetic and have strong meanings that I devour her books rather quickly. BLOCK SHOT was no stranger to these common characteristics, it definitely was on a lighter side compared to her previous book in this cast of characters which was a nice reprieve. The only thing that annoyed me is the promo materials showing Banner stick thin when reading the book I got the feeling she was a more curvy girl even after her weightloss. But seriously the book is fantastic and as I mentioned touches on body image and a great second chance romance!

Excerpt:

“Iris?” August’s frown, the concern on his face, in his voice, remind me where I am. “Baby, you okay?”

        I blink down at him dumbly, swallowing my tears, eating my memories whole and digesting a nightmare from long ago. I nod, my lips a cold, wobbly curve.

        “Kiss me,” he whispers, his eyes so tender, so intent.

I remember a magical night under the stars, under a streetlight on the eve of greatness. A night filled with laughter and confidences, pregnant with promise. And I see him so clearly, my prince, asking for a kiss.

And I do.

I kiss him like the world might end tonight because I’ll never take this for granted. Not his kindness, when I’ve known cruelty all too well. Not his tenderness, when I’ve been handled roughly in the past. Not his love, when I’ve been possessed and owned and mistreated.

He thaws me with his kiss, my prince, and I melt into him. We’re chest to chest, with August’s number crushed between us. I take his cock in my hand, aligning our bodies, and two become one in a carnal slide of flesh. I anchor myself by my elbows hooked around his neck, and we kiss until I’m dizzy and our breaths tangle in a cloud of bliss. Under the jersey, his palm spans my back, digging into the naked flesh as our hips lock and roll and grind. My body clenches around him, and we pray, we curse, we moan, we mate like our bodies were made for this moment.

Ours is a love that reimagines—that peels back the sky at high noon searching for the stars, collecting them like shells in a bucket. We bathe in stardust, drink from the Milky Way, and dance on the moon. We pierce the firmament, peer into infinity, and tread on time and space. There is no before. There is no after. Now gives birth to forever. This moment may die, but this love never will. Time is not a line. It’s a circle, and we, August and Iris, we stand at the center.

“A STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING AND READ THIS NOW kind of book. Don’t hold your breath, this story will steal it from you.”

My Book Review

 

LONG SHOT is everything ladies just EVERYTHING!!!! GO READ it ASAP!!!

That’s all bye 👋

 

I devoured LONG SHOT in one night. I could Not. Put. It. DOWN! I laughed, cried, got angry, and fell HARD for Iris & August’s story! You MUST READ Kennedy Ryan’s upcoming Basketball 🏀 Romance releasing on March 22nd! I was enamored with her last series FLOW, GRIP, & STILL and begged her for more when I met her last year at Authors in the OC and she told me about this book 🏀LONG SHOT 🏀 that she was writing. In Kennedy’s About the Book 📚 section she talks about her research for this book and I am so grateful that she brought this book to life. I cried myself to sleep last night and am tearing up now thinking of people struggling with what happens in this book. Thank you my book friend was also awake and reading this book too at 2AM with me to lend a virtual hug #Hopscotch.

Fast Five Friday – Military Romances

 

 

 

Tomorrow is Veteran’s Day in America, where we celebrate and honor the individuals who have pledged their life to defend our country and freedoms. Honestly, I think that they deserve more than ONE fucking day, but a day is what they have and its much deserved. I have several family and friends who were or are still serving for our military forces. I have seen friends return from war ravaged areas and how it has changed them, not for the better, but eventually they find themselves again. Well today I want to share some of my favorite military romances that I have read in case you are feeling patriotic and wanting to read a book in this subgenere.

 

 

Happy Veteran’s Day to our Military Spouses as well! Our soldiers would not be able to do what they do without having someone to believe in them and have their back.

STILL BANNER BT.jpg

“Grip is my ultimate…If I was forced, gun-to-the head, to make one book boyfriend real to be mine, it would be him. No questions asked.”

— Adriana Locke, USA Today Bestselling Author

I’ll be there.

Through thick and thin.

Ride or die.

You can count on me.

The promises people make. The vows we take.

Assumptions of the heart.

Emotion tells us how we feel, but life…life has a way of plunging us in boiling water, burning away our illusions, testing our faith, trying our convictions.

Love floating is a butterfly, but love tested is an anchor.

For Grip and Bristol,

Love started at the top of the world

On a Ferris wheel under the stars

But when that love is tested, will they fly or fall?

Excerpt:

“Mmmmm, that looks good.”

    The comment grabs my attention, and I find myself smiling for the first time since I left Bristol. As she walks toward me, the approaching sunset paints the roof in shadows, but I see her clearly. Dark hair, burnished in places, falls around her shoulders. She has already discarded the dress she wore at lunch today in favor of a T-shirt and nothing else; it’s the one I just tossed into the hamper.

    She tugs at my HABITUAL LINE STEPPER T-shirt, the hem landing at the top of her thighs. Where the T-shirt stops, my eyes keep going, past the lean muscles of her legs and the cut of her calves, the delicate bones of her ankles and to her bare feet. I love this girl, head to toe. Beyond this gorgeous packaging, it’s everything beneath that makes me beyond grateful she’s mine. The loyalty, the bottomless pit that is her heart, her sense of humor. The toughest girl I know is also the most tender, and I’m so honored I get to see both sides, all her sides.

    “You out of clean clothes?” I nod to my T-shirt. “You gotta wear my dirty stuff now?”

    An impish smile tugs at her bare lips. She’s washed away her makeup, and with it, all the sophistication she wraps around herself for her job. Up on this roof in my T-shirt, she’s just my girl. I love her in every iteration, but this is the one only I get to see, so it’s probably my favorite.

    “I have clean clothes.” She steps close enough for me to smell her scent and mine mingling in the fabric. “I like the way this shirt smells.”

    I drop a look over her, my eyes resting on the curves of her breasts in the soft cotton, where her nipples have gone taut under my stare.

    “How does the shirt smell?” I ask, my voice as smoky as the steaks I should be paying attention to.

    “Like you.” She leans forward until her breasts press into my chest. “It smells like you.”

    My hands are twitching to touch her, and I finally surrender, slipping under the shirt to grasp her waist, pulling her up the few inches until our lips meet. I’ve been thinking about these steaks all day, and before Bristol arrived, I thought I was starving—but this, what I feel having her in my arms after hours apart, this is starving. It starts in my balls and tunnels up through my chest, infiltrates my heart, and presses its way to my mouth, which is open and devouring in a lips-searching, tongues-dueling kiss. I grip her by the ass, grinding our bodies together until the texture of her skin and mine, the scents of her skin and mine meld into this one panting, voracious thing that never seems to get enough.

    “You better not burn my steak,” Bristol pants in between kisses.

    I angle my head to send my tongue deeper into her mouth, holding her still, teasing her until she’s straining up, open and begging when I pull back.

    “Grip.” My name is a whimpering complaint. She cups my neck and tugs my head back down.

    “Oh, no.” I resist, laugh, and turn to the grill. “You were so concerned about me burning these steaks, Ms. Medium Rare.”

    “I am.” She slides her arms around me from behind and I feel a sweet sting, her teeth gently biting my shoulder through my T-shirt. I love it when she bites me, but I’m not giving her that satisfaction yet. “But that doesn’t mean you get to stop kissing me. You have to multitask.”

    One slim hand slides over my abs and past my belt to cup me through my jeans.

    Damn. Not sure how long I can keep up this charade that I don’t want to screw her into the wall on the roof where anyone with half a telescope could see.

    “Wow,” I say, keeping my tone unaffected, though she’s gotta feel me getting longer and harder in her hand. “Somebody’s horny as hell.”

    She makes a sound that’s half outraged laughter, half indignant grunt before stepping around to stand in front of me by the grill.

    “I will not be slut-shamed by my own boyfriend.” Amusement lights her eyes, turning them to quicksilver.

    “Shamed?” I put down the grilling fork I’m using for the steaks and reach for her again. “No shame in being horny for me, baby. I wanna give you a gold star.”

    Her eyes slide down to the erection poking her in the stomach. “Is that what we’re calling it now? Should we name it?”

    “Guys who have to name their dicks probably aren’t using ’em right.”

    “So I ask again . . . should we name it?”

    I cock a brow and press our hips together.

“Are you implying that I don’t know how to use mine? Because that’s not the impression I got this morning when you came so hard you were singing like a bird.”

    She tilts her head, her eyes wide and considering. “Did you say like a bird?” A small smile plays around her lips. “What made you say that?”

    “I don’t know.” I give a careless shrug. “Why?”

    “It’s silly,” she says, rolling her eyes in self-derision. “I was thinking today when I laughed it sounded like . . .”

    Bristol blushes about once every Halley’s Comet, so the color washing across her cheeks makes me wonder.

    “What?” I probe. “Your laugh sounded like what?”

    “Like a happy bird,” she mumbles, peering up at me like I’m going to laugh in her face.

    Which I do.

    “Stop laughing at me.” She narrows her eyes in mock warning.

    “Right.” I dip my head to catch her eyes and tease her. “Because when you tell me you laugh like a happy bird I’m just supposed let you get away with that.”

    “I’m not telling you things anymore.” She narrows her eyes and folds her arms over her chest.

    “Yeah, right. I’m your best friend.” I pull her back into me. “You’ll tell me everything like you always do.”

    “You are, you know.” Her voice softens. “My best friend, I mean.”

When she looks at me like this, her eyes stripped of every defense, no guard in sight, completely honest and open and vulnerable, I feel slightly invincible. It’s a trick of the heart, I know, but I can’t help but think that as long as she looks at me like this, there isn’t anything I couldn’t survive, that our love is the stuff of legends, rolled in Teflon, disaster-proof. I’m as fanciful as Bristol, my laughing bird.

“You’re mine, too,” I echo her sentiment. “My best friend.”

“I won’t tell Rhyson,” she promises with a grin.

“I’m pretty sure he spits the same line to Kai.” I keep a straight face. “We have to say that shit to get laid.”

“I hate you.”

“Orrrrrrrrr do you love me and want to blow me after dinner?” I shrug and lift my hands, my palms up. “Just saying. Listen to your heart, Bristol. Listen to your heart.”

“I’m listening to my belly right now, smartass, and it’s growling. Feed me.”

“Like my mama used to say, ain’t no freeloaders in this house. What’ll you give me for feeding you?”

“Um . . .”

“I do have a suggestion, if you’re searching.”

“Let me guess—you have a ‘Will fuck for food’ sign up here somewhere?”

“I used bubble letters.” I laugh and give her ass a light smack. “You can barter that booty.”

It’s so damn easy with Bristol—our banter, the chemistry, the perfect rhythm of our conversation. It was one of the first things I noticed when we met all those years ago. We didn’t read each other’s minds or finish each other’s sentences. It wasn’t cosmic, but it was a connection that seized me by the brain and grabbed me by the balls. She was as smart as she was sexy, as curious as she was forthcoming. There were years in between when we made things complicated, when things were strained, but now with our hearts settled on each other for good, it’s simple.

This.

Her.

 My Book Review

Kennedy Ryan has created a Masterpiece and is a Genius! This is in my TOP READS, the whole series is for that matter!

description

Usually when you get to the part in a story and the couple has begun their Happily Ever After together it gets cheesy and redundant. Still is way out of its league – I could not get enough of Grip and Bristol’s Happily Ever After relationship. So many swoon worthy, laugh out loud, sexy moments throughout the story that just captivate your heart!

description

I will warn you that the second half of the book you need to have tissues with you. I tear up just thinking about this part of the book that made me seriously ugly cry. It was hard to keep reading as the words were blurry from my tears. This part of the book shocked me as to the direction that Kennedy Ryan took the plot! Luckily Grip & Bristol have each other and are so solid as a couple that their strengths outshine how to overcome this bump in their lives.

description

I cannot thank Kennedy Ryan enough for creating these characters and bringing to light so many important and less openly discussed societal issues to light. I am forever changed by this series for the better and thank you for my ugly cry! Thank you Queen Kennedy Ryan!

I’ll be there.

Through thick and thin.

Ride or die.

You can count on me.

The promises people make. The vows we take.

Assumptions of the heart.

Emotion tells us how we feel, but life…life has a way of plunging us in boiling water, burning away our illusions, testing our faith, trying our convictions.

Love floating is a butterfly, but love tested is an anchor.

For Grip and Bristol,

Love started at the top of the world

On a Ferris wheel under the stars

But when that love is tested, will they fly or fall?

GRIP COVER SALE

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.

Excerpt

“Neither of us has been in a serious relationship in years.”

“That doesn’t mean anything.” I stand and slide my feet into the Jimmy Choos. “You haven’t exactly been waiting around, have you?”

“Damn right I haven’t been waiting around.” He doesn’t get up, but his firm hold on my wrist stops me from walking away. “I’m not Rhyson.”

I look down at him, frowning my confusion.

“What do you mean?”

“Remember when Kai put Rhyson in the friend zone?”
Of course I do. For a long time, my sister-in-law Kai denied the attraction between her and Rhyson.

“Yeah, so?”

“When Kai wasn’t checking for Rhys, I assumed he had to be sleeping with other girls.” Grip shrugs. “I mean, he and Kai were just friends. But, nope. He said he only wanted Kai and didn’t sleep with anyone else.”

“Then you’re right.” I tug at my wrist, but he holds on tight. “You’re definitely not Rhyson.”

“It was months, Bristol. She shut him out for months. Not years.”

“I’m not shutting you out.” I release a tired breath. “I’m living my life, and you’re living yours.”

“Right.” He nods and turns his mouth down at the corners. “So, if you won’t be with me, then I’ll fuck whoever the hell I want. If you have a problem with that, you know what to do about it.”

For a moment, our eyes tangle in the dimness. His words sink into my flesh like briars. Every word out of his mouth only proves that I’m right to get out of here. That I’m right not to give in. If I ever gave him a chance and he fucked around on me . . . I’ve seen what that looks like. It looks like a woman as strong as my mother reduced to pathetic, teary drunkenness.

“It’s none of my business.” I shift my eyes away from him and to the glittering city skyline just beyond the rooftop.

“It’s none of your business until you say it is.”

I force myself to look back.

“Don’t hold your breath, Grip.” I say my next words with deliberation. “I mean, it’s not like I’m sitting around saving it, either.”

He pulls me forward, and I press my hand to the hardness of his chest so I don’t fall into him. My knee supports me, pressed against his on the couch.

“Are you poking me?” One strong hand wraps around the back of my thigh, anger marking his expression. “Do you want to know if it bothers me when you fuck other guys?”

I just stare at him unblinkingly. He presses my leg, urging me forward until I’m fully on the couch, fully on him, one knee on either side of his legs, facing him. Straddling him.

“It makes me want to set the world on fire.” His words come softly, but the truth roars in his eyes. “To think of you with them.”

My Book Review

I am in love with Kennedy Ryan and Grip and Bristol!!! Ahh I just cannot get enough of these two – GripStol.

description

Kennedy Ryan touches on some important topics plaguing society throughout Grip, while also including the best banter and love story of the year! Grip is in my Top Reads and I really think everyone should read this series.

“My mom would flip if I brought a white girl home. If I brought you home. Maybe it is bigoted and ancient, but that’s just her. You know better than most that we don’t get to choose our family, but we still love them.” 

Kennedy Ryan just blows me away with the heavy topics, but then adding in poetic words that just capture your heart. Grip was very eye-opening for me, but also very relatable in trying to fit in with certain societal circles in my own life although not anywhere near Grip’s upbringing.

Grip – you just fall in love with him! I mean a guy that recites poetry, come on!!!

“I look forward to making you come with my words alone.” 

description

What I love the most about Grip is even though he is ‘Straight Out of Compton” he doesn’t have that ‘chip’ on his shoulder instead he is focusing on helping others, friends, and family while trying to get his message out there through his music. His enduring love for Bristol that she won’t replicate or is hiding for her own selfish reasons just drove me CRAZY!!!

Bristol – she seriously drove me nuts! I mean how can you not just drop to your knees and just accept Grip’s unwavering affection for her!?!?!?

I really wanted to throw my kindle from all the angst from her & Grip’s actions. BUT its completely worth it to give you the ending of this book that your heart desires.

[Grip] “It’s us. Don’t pretend it isn’t us.” 
[Bristol] “There is no us.” 

I had this book on my TBR for far too long and I just binge read the entire series. All I can say is that these books are my TOP READS this year! Emotional, Hilarious, Sexy and I so wish to be #GripzQueen!
