Grip by Kennedy Ryan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It took me a lot longer to read this story and I realized it was because I was really taking in all the words and the emotions that this story evoked. I didn't want it to end. I am so beyond in love with Grip. I didn't think that it could get better than Rhys, and while he still has my heart, he definitely has competition with Grip.
I was originally pulled in by Grip's intelligence. I love the conversations between him and Bristol. Everyone one of them had meaning behind them. I also saw his passion and his talent and his heart. He wore it out there Bristol and it was beautiful.
I have noticed that Bristol has not always been everyone's favorite character, however, I love her. I love her tendency to say what is on her mind. I love her ambition and while sometimes frustrated with her, I even love her feistiness.
These two together are combustible. I loved their chemistry. I rooted for them even as secondary characters. Underneath all of this is such a strong message. It's a message of understanding and compassion. It's a message of acceptance. It was a message that definitely spoke to me and left me reeling, even after finishing the story.
I am always blown away by Kennedy's writing and the way her words make me feel when reading her books, but I am especially in awe of this book. I think this definitely has to be one of my favorites and definitely a top read of the year. I absolutely loved everything about this story. I will never tire of reading any of these characters. I would love to read more.
This was a stunning story that will definitely go on my shelf for rereading in the future.
