Kiss the Sky by Krista and Becca Ritchie (10 Stars)
Virgin. Sex addict. Daredevil. Alcoholic. Smartass … Jackass. Her five friends are about to be filmed. Reality TV, be prepared.
Rose Calloway thought she had everything under control. At twenty-three, she’s a Princeton graduate, an Academic Bowl champion, a fashion designer and the daughter of a Fortune 500 mogul. But with a sex addict as a sister and roommate, nothing comes easy.
After accepting help from a producer, Rose agrees to have her life filmed for a reality television show. The Hollywood exec is her last chance to revive her struggling fashion line, and boundaries begin to blur as she’s forced to make nice with a man who always has his way.
Twenty-four-year-old Connor Cobalt is a guy who bulldozes weak men. He’s confident, smart-as-hell and lives with his equally ambitious girlfriend, Rose Calloway. Connor has to find a way to protect Rose without ruining the show. Or else the producer will get what Connor has always wanted—Rose’s virginity.
I think I just met the most cutest and my newest favourite couple ever. And I think they are the epitome of a perfect couple (at least in their case) and the story itself and its character were amazing.
Ever since I read Addicted to You I was immediately drawn to Connor (Aimee, if you’re reading this, you know me so well. :D), he was the kind of character that would be hard to miss, and when I knew that he had his own story with Rose, I immediately wanted to read it.
And Connor and Rose did not disappoint.
Have you ever watched Kaichou Wa Maid Sama. If you did, you would know that Usui and Misaki are always challenging each other, and that they would always taunt one another try to beat each other (tho Usui always win tho). Its kind of the same dynamic as this one. They are both really really talented smart people. Especially Connor. They excel in the things that they pursue on and they always challenge each other. But in a way, instead of it being childish or immature, its kinda endearing and charming to watch. Especially since Connor really doesn’t care if he loses, he just wants to see Rose try her hardest. They made their relationship dynamic. They are close best friends and yet, they are also each other’s rival. It was a fun thing to see their relationship evolve to a more intimate matter.
Rose was a very determined character. I love her protectiveness towards her sisters. It was sweet of her to be that motherly towards them, and yet have the cold attitude of an ice queen towards others. I admire Rose for being herself and for being independent in her dreams and responsibilities. But really I’m more enamoured by Connor. Connor provides more of the humor in this book, alongside Loren, who has the kind of sarcastic humor. But the best thing I have to say about him is that he brings out the best Rose ( I have to stop now because I have a lot of things I could list out about how much I love Connor, and I will in my next BookBoyfriend post :D)
Another thing you should know about these two is their dedication in making those close to them, safe and protected. I saw just how they worked together to make Lily, Lo, Ryke and Daisy feel safe, even if they were in survelance of so many cameras. The camaraderie that they all formed with each other was just so “aaawwww” inducing that I can’t help but love everything about them all.
WHY DO I RECOMMEND IT?
It’s the kind of book that makes you love all of the character (except of course of the antagonist). The relationship between the characters are just funny, sarcastic and sweet. Tho this is NA (just for you young readers out there ;D) I still enjoyed the story of all these adults in the story. Even if it has a reality show setting in it. Its not dramatic, instead it was a whole lot of fun, and it made a mark in my reading life.
