Original Post and Giveaway on 09/18/17 at: https://www.tangledintext.com/single-... There might not have been a Happily Ever After, but there was an OH S#!T moment at the end. This was such a great read! It fueled my adrenaline to immediately NEED to start the next in the series. It reminded me a bit of the Big Brother atmosphere where these strangers are trapped 24/7 together with not much else to do, but get to know each other, so it's a bit of an accelerated process with the relationships that form. Grip and Bristol might have had significant lust at first sight, but I respect and appreciate how their bond formed. There was no giggling and butterflies, but long talks about deeper issues that made an instant connection that would last. There was a comfort with each other that had them feeling like they had known each other for much longer than just her Spring Break getaway. The background issues were extremely intriguing and just a hint of what you will get in the next book in the series. I will say I am bulldozing Grip , the second in the series. It is mesmerizing. This series holds an outstanding plot as I'm almost done with the second book and it reminds me of the TV series Empire. If I didn't need sleep I would have gotten through both last night, but ending up passing out around 2 AM, knowing I needed to wake up in three hours for work. There is a great balance of family, love, lust, and music with bonds both forming and breaking. I highlighted so many quotes and punchlines then read them aloud to my husband not caring if he listened or not, but just to get my excitement out about how clever certain aspects in this story were. Such an easy, fun read with outstanding development of the characters. It might not have had a Happily Ever After, but you will not be left hanging in the sense that the story was cut short. I'm glad it ended the way it did. The author didn't care about the public opinion to have a pretty, clean finish and to have every aspect completely wrapped up.

4.5 stars — I can’t believe how much I felt for these characters in such a short period of time. The way Ms. Ryan conveys her character’s emotions is so very effective…it sucker punched me right in the feels. And what’s more interesting is that I would feel for Bristol, and then she would have a conversation with Grip and I was seeing other sides of the coin while still wanting to wallow in it with Bristol. I loved the nature of the conversations in this story. The author really didn’t pull any punches, but went right for the jugular…but did so in such a way as to make me really think without feeling too preachy. I was worried about how I would feel about Grip. He’s a very stereotypical guy in parts of this novella…the things he would think or say. But I kind of loved how he conveyed a more authentic voice of a black man from LA, while at the same time showcasing how much more is going on…to not judge a book by its cover. I loved the way he challenged Bristol’s preconceived notions and pushed back against her unintentional judgements. Bristol was a fantastic combination of sweet and sassy, broken and strong. And I appreciated that when Grip pushed back against her, she took the time to listen and learn, but also challenge him right back. My heart hurt for her broken relationship with her twin, and I couldn’t help but want Rhys to understand that he wasn’t the only one that was hurt. We got to see her understand better what happened to him when they were young, but I kind of wanted the reciprocation. The chemistry between Bris and Grip was fantastic. I really did feel the ease of their relationship, and how they just “flowed” with one another. As they were enjoying the conversations with each other, I was enjoying reading them. I loved that we got to see the different types of attraction — they were instantly physically attracted, but we got to see them become attracted to all the other aspects of their personalities. I really appreciated the secondary characters we got to meet — from Rhys (though he frustrated me) to Jimmi (who surprised the heck out of me). They added a little something, and I’m curious to see what their roles will be in the next 2 books. I had a feeling that this novella wasn’t going to end with an HEA, so it wasn’t a surprise for me. I was okay with the way the book ended, b/c I know I’m going to get to see what happens in the future. Hopefully Ms. Ryan doesn’t break my heart too much along the way.

I'm so glad I re-read this because I really enjoyed it even more this time. I'm surprised that I forgot so much of what happened in this novella, even about 6 months later! I originally started Flow with the intentions of immediately starting Grip and clearly that didn't happen the first go around. But this time I'm ready to read Grip and I'm so excited!

Before starting Flow, I had heard amazing things about the conclusion of this story, Grip, so I decided to see read Flow first to see what I thought before committing to a full length novel. I am SO glad I did, because Flow exceeded every expectation I had when starting the book. The conversations between Grip and Bristol touch on very intense political issues that are plaguing our country right now, but a lot of us are afraid to discuss. I can't wait to see what happens next for Grip and Bristol.
