Synopsis

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.

This New Adult Standalone Romance can be described as Friends meets The Real World. Expect fist fights, drugs, sex of varying degrees, crude humor and competitive alpha males. Definitely for mature audiences only.

 LEX’S REVIEW of KISS THE SKY

I’m riding that high. You know, the one caused when that perfect book reaches into you with angst and lust and soul and pulls you so deep into the drama that you never want to come out? Yeah, that one. I seem to always get that buzz when I read books in the Addicted series by Krista and Becca Ritchie.

Although KISS THE SKY works great as a stand-alone novel, it’s number four in the Addicted series and features Rose Calloway and her boyfriend Connor Cobalt.

If you’ve read the others, you know that Rose is the glue that binds the family together. She’s the one who backed up her sister Lily and Lily’s boyfriend Lo when they were dealing with their addictions in the first three books. We’ve come to know Rose as this tough-as-nails girl who doesn’t take shit from anyone. So watching her kowtow to Scott, the sleazy producer of a reality TV show so she can use the publicity to save her failing fashion line, is nothing short of painful. And that discomfort only grows as the show begins to tape and she sees how Scott is editing the footage for maximum humiliation.

But Rose’s future isn’t the only one on the line. Connor is vying to take the helm of his mother’s multi-billion dollar company while he’s in an MBA program. Yeah, he’s wicked smart and hot as hell. Lily and Lo join the cast as they hope to prove to the public that they’re overcoming their addictions in a real relationship, not something contrived to remake their reputations. But the stress of a reality show is not exactly the ideal environment for two recovering addicts. Ryke, Lo’s half-brother, and Daisy, Rose’s little sister, also live in the house, which is decked out with cameras. And while Ryke and Daisy are just friends because Daisy is only 17 and Ryke is 23, their attraction is always simmering on the surface. So the situation, from any angle, is combustible.

Here’s the problem with Rose and Connor’s relationship—she’s a virgin, despite the fact that she and Connor have been dating for a year and he sleeps in her bed when the show starts to tape. But Connor always gets what he wants, so he sets his sights on the girl who is his mental equivalent. People may call Rose a bitch, but he loves her feistiness. And the two of them together are off-the-charts hot as they push each other to the limit.

If you’ve been reading the series, this book was a slightly different experience. Lily and Lo’s books were raw and dark and desperate as they tried to claw out of their addictions. KISS THE SKY, while still awesomely intense, had a lighter feel. I found myself laughing out loud several times.

I probably read 150 books in the last year, but I can count the ones that stood out like the Addicted series on one hand. Becca and Krista Ritchie’s novels just keep getting better, so be sure to grab KISS THE SKY when it goes on sale on January 24 and keep your eyes peeled for HOTHOUSE FLOWER, Ryke and Daisy’s book, in March.

(I received an ARC for an honest review.)

About the Authors

150219_201945006672435_704378981_nKrista Ritchie has a clone…or someone who looks exactly like her. If she’s not writing books with her twin sister, she’s pouring over entertainment news and ingesting copious amounts of pop culture. She likes tennis, that thing called the TV, and beating Becca (her clone) on Sega Genesis. She created YA Book Exchange to combat her book buying addiction and started Nawanda Files, a YA Book Blog that features books into movies news, to share her love for all things bookish. Oh, and she does something called science. Whatever that is.

Krista & Becca Ritchie write New Adult books that make you cringe, gasp, and go ooh-la-la. (If you do that sort of thing.) They are currently working on the spin-offs and final books in the Addicted series.
