***This is not a cliffhanger***
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.
Kennedy Ryan starts us off 8 years after the prequel “Flow” and I am still in love with Grip. His career is taking off with Bristol as his manager. Bristol has become this force to be reckoned with in the music world and has a heart of ice. Bristol is still holding on to her hurt from years ago and add in what she knows of her father’s betrayal which has made her be nicknamed “Ice queen”. She becomes this ice queen that I can’t get behind until the end because Grip is there to melt that wall with his powerful feelings. So to put it lightly I didn’t like her character too much until towards the end. With Grip I loved him because he is a straight shooter without all the pretense. All the characteristics of a man I love which are he is a fighter, honest, faithful, and passionate. He didn’t give up even when Bristol wanted him to and I wanted him to LOL. Grip made the book for me and outweighed my dislike for Bristol. They are living in this diverse world to which Bristol knows nothing about his world because she stays stuck in a world of glamour and lights. I love the way Grip fights for her and makes her see things from different perspectives where she is not judging with learning. Their story is a long journey of fighting, betrayal, misunderstandings, and love. It was a great story with messages we all need to read about. Loved it.
