"Flow is the intro to an epic love song. It's that first beat that has you stopping in your tacks and turning up the volume. 
The perfect cadence to a must-read prelude. 5 on top of the world stars!" -Mandi Beck, Bestselling Author of the Caged Love series and Stoned.
 Available on WATTPAD:
"Ryan continues her streak of amazingly accessible and authentic romantic fiction. Grip is a bold and unapologetic look at interracial romance and does not shy away from any of the ideals and prejudices that most of us are too polite to acknowledge - head on- amidst one of the sexiest, and provocative true love romances Ryan has penned to date. Break out the fans folks, Grip is aptly titled and sure to make you need a grip! -- Sheena, Smexy Books
In 8 years, Marlon James will be one of the brightest rising stars in the music industry. Bristol Gray will be his tough, no-nonsense manager. But when they first meet, she’s a college student finding her way in the world, and he’s an artist determined to make his way in it. From completely different worlds, all the things that should separate them only draw them closer. It’s a beautiful beginning, but where will the story end?
FLOW is the prequel chronicling the week of magical days and nights
that will haunt Grip & Bristol for years to come.
GRIP is the full-length conclusion of their story available March 2 here:

When I read the Souls series I was very much intrigued by Grip and Bristol's relationship and wondered what their story was. 
Because they certainly had chemistry in spades. Their simmering lust and attraction also hinted at a much more deeper connection.

With Flow, a short prequel, I got not just a hint but a pretty damn good look into how they first met and how deep their relationship goes. 
Especially on a personal level. 
Their interactions were phenomenal and I loved how comfortable they were around each other. They reveled in each other's company and their conversations flowed effortlessly, 
layered with so much intensity. 
I couldn't remove my eyes from the intoxicating prose and words of Kennedy Ryan. 
Grip and Bristol were amazing and turned out to be very complex and multi layered characters. 
I loved the range and depth of their conversations which were a great mixture of race and culture. Also their own views and opinions of today's and the 90's society played a huge part of this story and I appreciate that Ryan chose to go that route with Grip and Bristol. 
My impression and love for both of them only expanded and I got so much more excited as the story progressed.

I can easily tell that Kennedy Ryan is a huge fan and admirer of poetry. 
Her prose feels just like that. 
Her words flows with ease, gently pulls my along like a wave and I'm immersed.
 I'm in another world, the world of Kennedy Ryan and that's definitely the place to be.

Don't miss out on preordering GRIP - only 99c until release day when it goes up to $3.99!
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.

I was definitely wooed by Grip 
and his delicious chocolate charm. 
Marlon aka Grip isn't all about 
being a famous hip hop star. 
No, he has so much story hidden behind 
those good looks of his.
 A voice to be heard because he has plenty to say. Not just through his lyrics but also in general. 
A very strong opinion and a talent beyond words. He's also a good man who's been raised right by his mother in a tough environment in Compton. When he finally gains success 
he never forgets where he's from 
or the people that matter the most to him.
Bristol is my kind of woman and I have to be honest that I wasn't a fan of hers when I met her in the Souls series. 
But already while reading Flow
 I had to admit that I was wrong. 
She won me over and after reading Grip 
I want her as my best friend cause she kicked ass. I also saw a more vulnerable side to her that immediately captured me. 
That vulnerability goes back to her strained relationship with her parents 
and her brother Rhyson. 
It will also played a huge role in 
her relationship with Grip.

Grip and Bristol's relationship is extraordinary and so intense that I got chills every time they were around one another. 
There's so much history between them since their friendship goes back years. 
That only strengthened my connection and my need to know more. 
What I love about them is how at ease and comfortable they were with each other. 
They connected on deeper level. 
Through conversations about race, music and society. Only open to each other's opinions and never narrow minded. 
One thing they both wanted explore further was their mutual attraction which was 
out of this world!!!
 Simply magical. 
Their love and how far they will go for it and one another knows no bounds. 
I was drunk on their love.

One of many things Kennedy Ryan succeeds with in Grip and also Flow are her choice of topics and how she weaves them into Grip and Bristol's story. Music and race especially  
play a huge and important role. 
It gives the story an edge but most importantly it also gives more depth to the characters. 
Not just to Grip and Bristol but also to the secondary characters. 
Grip is an extraordinary story with a powerful message which has to be experienced.
