Book Review – Kiss the Sky by Krista and Becca Ritchie


Kiss the Sky is undeniably a sexy read, but it was a bit too much for me. The cursing didn’t sit well on me either but the romance was really something, plus I love the combination of Rose and Connor. It was a dual POV too, and that’s a winner in my book. If you enjoy sexy contemporary romance, then this story might work best for you.

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.

Review

I’m not really that fond of celebrity stories how much more reality shows! For this one, I almost bailed out when I found out about these set of rich kids starring in a reality show, plus the producer is a BIG prick. But oh well, I guess I’m just really curious to find out what’s the reason why Krista chose to subject herself into such a messy situation.

Kiss the Sky didn’t start in a good side for me because of the idea of a reality show plus I hated the prick producer! My! Authors shouldn’t start their stories introducing hateful characters! But oh well, atleast in the next few chapters, I am noticing some good aspect in this story. I don’t watch reality shows so I don’t have anything to compare this story with, but I guess this whole reality show wasn’t that bad at all. In this story, we we’re introduced into some sets of characters that I’m sure some of us could relate to. Aside from that, I also like that it added an issue about addiction which makes this story really relatable.

The romance part wasn’t that bad either. I know the idea of a guy who doesn’t believe in love sounds old already but the thing I find interesting about this couple is that they’re so alike. Opposites always attracts right? But for them it’s the other way around. Krista is an overachiever as well as Connor and they spent their school life competing against each other. Aside from that, I love the part that they’re true to themselves and they accepted everything about each other. They’re definitely not your typical couple, their idea of flirting is chopping each other’s head off (well, I guess it was on Krista’s part). Krista is definitely a b*tch and Connor is the kind of guy you wouldn’t want to cross with. So yeah, I guess they really are a perfect combination. Ofcourse their relationship wasn’t just all good but they also has some bad moments, but I guess the thing I like about it is that there’s no unnecessary drama. There may be a lot of drama in the show but between their relationship? Nah, all’s good!

I don’t think I ever hated a character before as much as I hated this prick producer. He’s an evil incarnate and I can’t count how many times I want to castrate him while reading this story. It would have been fine with me if in the end of this story he got what he deserves but instead he got himself a million! Plenty of them! Can you believe that?! So yep, I guess the big part of my reason why I am giving Kiss the Sky a 3-stars rating was because of that. Aside from that, there were so many cursing in this story that sometimes I find disturbing (and that’s really something since I don’t normally mind them), plus a guy hitting a girl! What the! Who in the right mind would do that?! The sexy scenes we’re pretty intense too so I skipped most of them.

This was my first time from the authors, although it wasn’t that great first experience, I’m still interested on reading something from them especially the other books in this series.
