Publisher's Summary

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.

Contains mature themes.

Absolutely amazing❤️

How do you review a story that has affected your emotions so much. All you want is for Grip and Bristol to be together. Never did I think it would be such an emotion roller coaster. I mean really, what is keeping her. One can understand her reluctance but on the other hand you just want to shake her and tell her to just go for it.........

The moment Bristol realizes she’s actually going to loose him is the moment every thing changes for them. It is the moment when they both profess their love for each other. So well deserved they finally get it be together, just the way it was supposed to be. It happiness doesn’t come without heartache......

Follow their path to happiness. A path not without obstacles. The question is, will they get there.....!?!

Amazing. Brilliant. Outstanding. Just a few words to describe this story. I didn’t want it to end. A definite 5 star read for me.

Epic!!

Grip is more than a love story, it's a life story. The beautiful, stolen moments amidst the ugliness, unfairness and judgments of life. Grip is Epic.

Grip and Bristol's story has been long awaited. We've watched their dance while falling in love with Rhyson and Kai. We've seen their instant attraction, fears, and frustrations throughout the Soul Series. Now it's their turn.

Flow introduces young Bristol and Marlon "Grip". A simple week changes their future.

Grip brings real life struggles. Love chooses you. You don't choose love. Love is hearts and souls finding their other half regardless of race, religion, sex, income, education. It's not easy and it doesn't work without trust and respect.

Their dance spans several years and her avoidance is painful to them both. He's hurting. She's hurting. She's hurting him. Bristol makes a decision that could destroy them both and everything changes. This can't go on.

This is a HEA story but along the way are some of life's biggest obstacles, seemingly ripped from the news. Grip is as real as it gets. One week, years of hurt, many lifetimes of injustice, and a love so deep. Grip will make you think. It will make you feel the gamut of emotions. And it will give you hope.

Kennedy Ryan has written an Epic story in Grip. It is a story like no other.

This was an audio re-read and these narrators brought an already amazing story to life. Fantastic narrators. Jakobi Diem had me melting!! 🤗🤗

Loved the story and message!

This was a unique story that dealt a lot with current issues such as racial profiling and prejudice. The hero is such a sexy guy! The heroine just needs to learn to trust in his love, but has been damaged by a childhood where she was pretty invisible. There are moments of tension and suspense. While the sexy scenes are hot! The narration was well performed also.

How unfortunate

I found this book to be complex not in character development but in how it degraded black women. Every black woman was portrayed as being vulgar, bitter and unwavering. How typical! Readers have no other choice but to empathize with the plight of the main character a white woman despite that she is the only character that says the n word repeatedly despite all of the black characters in the book. She is described as being elegant while the black women are objectified for their body types and sexuality. How unfortunate! This proud black woman will be returning this horrible excuse for a riveting novel!

My heart broke loose on the wind....

Grip audio
I read this book and completely stole my heart. Having this in audio is such a treat for us bookworm.
Absolutely amazing. Jakobi nailed Grip his strong persona, the swagger, that velvet naughty sensual voice. Just DAAAAAAMN Maxine as Bristol is a perfect match also. All her strong will, commanding presence and fierce love is portrayed to perfection. You can't get enough of this book. You truly get to experience all the feelings. When a book is as powerful as Grip having the audio is the best way to transport yourself in the story. With this audiobook you will get SENCE OVERLOAD.

Grip

I know readers tend to say, 'I don't know what to say' about this book or that book, but Grip is very hard to articulate into words. You have to read it to know its beauty. I read Flow and I didn't connect with the characters, but Ryan did something in Grip that made me fall in love with Grip and Bristol. There were times when I wanted to cry and scream. Most of the time, I felt like I was on the edge of a cliff, and at any moment I was going to fall off.

Ryan tackles a tough topic in this book (racism), but the way she writes the story, you understand each characters' point of view. You may not like it or agree with it; however, she puts you into the heart of the characters so you can experience what they are struggling with. She plunges you deep into their pain, sorrow, and joy. I stopped listening a couple of times because I was afraid to experience what would happen next. Thank God I continued to the end.

The narration was on point. We know a good narration will enhance a story and the narrators allowed me to visualize everything that was going on in this story. I want - no, I need - this to be a movie. Even though I feel the movie version would try to be too politically correct, I would love to see this story come to life on screen. Oh, I forgot to say that my favorite scene in this book is when Grip performs Bruised. The words to that rap are soul-piercing.

If you have not read Flow or Grip, please read them. As a reader, these are the kind of books I live for. As I write these words, I want to cry because I feel like I'm leaving family and I feel there is more to be said about this couple. Kennedy Ryan, you are amazing!

Emotional, slow burn, maddening and epic

I've been putting off reading this book because of how emotional I have heard it was. Something compelled me to this series that I couldn't ignore.

If you love a slow burn romance, one that can be maddening at times, but results in fireworks that are out of this world, Grip is the book for you.

The narration completely immerses you in the world of Grip and Bristol. Truly terrific performances by both narrators.
