Overview

A virgin "ice queen" heiress & The arrogant god-like man who wants to melt her

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.

When Rose's fashion line is in peril, she plans an unconventional solution to save it. Making matters more intense, she agreed to be in a real relationship with her "godly" college rival.

And now they're living together.
​For the first time.

At twenty-four, Connor Cobalt bulldozes weak men. Confident and smart-as-hell, Connor vows to help Rose outside of the bedroom and inside. But melting this ice queen is a challenge no one has been able to win.

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

----

Kiss the Sky is the first book in the Calloway Sisters series and can be read and enjoyed without reading any of Krista & Becca's other novels.

I did not like this book. It was about 3 poor, little rich girls and guys that have nothing better to do but drink, do drugs and have sex . Really? And we are supposed to feel sorry for them. It was too long and really did not have a story line. It was very immature and the story was not believable. I just could not get into it. Boring....

I am definitely not a prude but over three hundred pages where the F word is constantly mentioned is much too much. These authors need to expand their vocabulary. I really struggled to finish this book because of language.

I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!! I swear it keeps getting better and better!!! I have to admit, I liked Rose and Connor from the first books but i didn't love them. Now i LOVE Rose and Connor!!!!! I saw a whole new side to them, especially Connor. It was amazing. This book kept me interested from beginning to end. There were no slow parts at all. I've never liked every book in a series before but I think this one may be it. A definite must read :)

I love Rose. Her take no prisoners, ball buster confidence is inspiring. To truly get to know Rose in Kiss the Sky is even better as we find out that she isn't always confident. Connor is the perfect match for her and seems to be the only person truly tuned in to what she hides. Connor is that arrogant, confident man but he's loyalty and honesty are refreshing which makes him endearing. Rose and Connor seem to come from a life of privilege but when we dig deeper we find out what truly shaped them as children and fueled their drive for perfection. These two don't have an easy road to a relationship but their competitive nature and fierce loyalty create the right foundation. I must admit that I was shocked when they agreed to being a reality TV show … what were they thinking? But experiencing Rose, Connor living with Lily, Lo, Ryke and Daisy was fun and filled with all the drama I expected. This family that they create with the 6 of them is just what the doctor ordered for everyone. I love this series and am truly invested in what happens to everyone in this group, hoping that they all find their true happy ending.

Excellent!!! Loved it!!! Great writing, unique plot, sintillating sexy characters, and steamy sex scenes! This story has all the draw with duel POV's, HEA epilogue, and intriguing secondary characters for future series. Well put together book. I highly recommend KISS THE SKY. S.A.K.

So you already know the story of the sex addict and the alcoholic. Now how about a reality show not only featuring them but the virgin, the smartass, the jackass, and a daredevil….did I mention everyone is living under one roof. With that being said Kiss the Sky was destined to be nothing less the f-ing awesome ( in my Ryke’s voice).  After the revelation of her younger sister’s addict Rose is on a mission to save her brand, soon after the cameras are rolling questions arise asking if she is making the right choice. I absolutely love Rose. Everything about her she’s focused, driven, intelligent, refuses to back down without a fight, and most of all she’s flawed and vulnerable.  Thankfully enough she has Connor be her side. Even if she’s kicking and screaming. I have to admit when Connor came on the scene I thought he was a “richard” that was looking for any and every connection he could to get ahead in his world. Most of his moves were so calculated and without any hint of emotion. Ahhh so refreshing to know that’s not the case.  If Kiss the Sky was a true reality show I would be sooo Addicted to every aspect of it. It would definitely be my drug of choice. To be honest my real life was actually getting in the way of me wanting and needing to lose myself in this in one sitting.   While the story was not about Lilly I could not get over how weak and in a more gentle terms “not very bright”. I felt bad for her, but I know with time she’s only going to get better.  I do have one question to ask why couldn’t the two douche bags ( i.e. Scott & Daisy’s little friend) get junk punched when they so clearing had it coming. Multiple times. While I am mostly nonviolent that would have made the world right...in my mind .  While Kiss the Sky is a standalone I strongly urge you to read the entire Addicted series to get a better understanding of where everyone is coming from and not to mention that everything the Ritchie sisters touch is f-ing awesome. I would love to thank the Ritchie sisters for granting me access to an arc copy in exchange for my honest opinion. I’m so Addicted to this family of friends. I can’t not get enough of them. Counting down the days for more

I've already gushed about my love for the Addicted series by Krista and Becca Ritchie, so it shouldn't be too surprising that I loved Kiss the Sky, too! Kiss the Sky isn't directly part of the series though, it's actually a spin-off, and it focuses on Lily's sister, Rose, and her boyfriend, Connor Cobalt...you just have to use his full name sometimes, it just sounds too good to not say fully! :P Plus, Connor totally demands that respect. ;D While Kiss the Sky does take place chronologically after Addicted for Now, Rose and Connor create a very different narrative than Lily and Lo do...but that's not a bad thing at all, just different. I love Lily and Lo, but I did really enjoy getting to know Rose and Connor better. It was also interesting to see things from a perspective outside of Lily and Lo. It kind of helped show how addiction can affect those who aren't addicted themselves, and that while we may have thought we knew Rose and Connor through Lily and Lo's narrative...there are definitely things we had no clue about...I really wasn't expecting some of them, but I must admit that it was pretty interesting and exciting to read about. People definitely aren't always what you expect them to be. ;) As far as the plot and story goes, I loved it! The reality show was fantastic, and I loved that I was so absorbed in the story that I genuinely got annoyed about the way the show was being run just like Rose and Connor did. :P The character development was awesome, especially seeing Rose and Connor's relationship evolve...it was definitely intense! I also love that the narrative stands out so much compared to the Addicted series. It genuinely feels like each character is fully defined and is there own person. You would never confuse one character's narrative with another's, and I think that requires a lot of skill as an author. Becca and Krista Ritchie do an amazing job with their characters whether they're the main ones or secondary, they all feel fully rounded...even the butthead, Scott. :P Overall, I absolutely LOVED Kiss the Sky! While it was quite a bit different from Lily and Lo's narratives in the Addicted series, it still maintained the same funny, and dynamic feel as the previous books, which made it the perfect spin-off! I'd recommend Kiss the Sky to both Addicted series lovers and newbies to the series! It works as a standalone, but I think you would enjoy it a bit more having read the previous books because then you'll love Lily and Lo already, too. ;) This is the perfect book for people who like smart characters (who know they're ridiculously smart and totally flaunt it :P), and enjoy relationships where you can feel the sexual tension as the characters have intense, intellectual debates. ;D * I purchased an ebook of Kiss the Sky for my Kindle from Amazon, and chose to write a review. All opinions are my own * This review can also be found on my blog, and on other social media sites.

My love affair, or some might even say obsession, with Krista & Becca Ritchie's books began about midway through Addicted to You. It was real, believable and challenged my way of thinking about addiction. The fact that the story was told with real, complex characters, while not always necessarily likable, were ones I wanted to see succeed, made it all the better. As much as I grew to love Lily and Lo, I was always found myself intrigued by Lily's older sister, Rose, and her boyfriend Connor. In Kiss the Sky, I had the opportunity to get to know both of them. Very well. "People hope to touch the sky. I dream of kissing it." "He is power and perfection in so many ways that I will never admit aloud. His head would be humongous by the fact." Both Connor and Rose are incredibly ambitious. Connor is an MBA student who will eventually be the CEO of Cobalt, Inc. and Rose is a designer with her own line. After her sister's sex addiction is revealed to the world, judgement is strong and her family is suffering. In an attempt to gain some positive publicity, Rose hesitantly agrees to a reality TV show starring those closest to her: her boyfriend Connor, her sister Lily and her fiancé Lo, her younger sister Daisy and Lo's brother Ryke. Or, as show promos like to call them: Virgin. Sex addict. Daredevil. Alcoholic. Smartass … Jackass. Reality TV meets real-life drama, love and sex in this story. Things go awry the minute the show's producer Richard decides to move into the house and is a constant source of trouble. He's a real dick. He's chasing Rose, making offensive remarks about her youngest sister Daisy and trying to push Lily and Lo back towards their addictions. The man had not one single redeeming quality. But it was through all his flaws and devious behavior that we got to see the best of Connor and Rose. And the other characters too. And that's all I'm telling you about the plot. :) You want to know more? Read it for yourself. Seriously. You just have to experience this one. "In nearly ten years of knowing Connor, we always seem to return to each other – even when we were thousands of miles apart, on two separate planes of existence – even when it seems like our futures had strayed. He may not believe in fate, but I do. And I know I'm fated to be with him." What I will do is gush endlessly over the characters. Three books with these characters and I can say unequivocally that I love each and every single one of these characters. Are they flawed? Yes. Do they know it? Yes. Do I care? No. I love them more because of their flaws. Connor is controlling and dominant and sexy as all hell. He's also fiercely loyal, protective, passionate and a romantic at heart. Rose is strong, determined, more than a little uptight, unwilling to let go... and a virgin. Until Connor begins pushing her outside her comfort zone and gives her what she truly wants and/or desires – sexually and otherwise. They are a powerhouse couple with a dynamic I can't even begin to explain or compare to any characters in any other book. Together they were sheer perfection. While Lily and Lo aren't the focus of this book, they certainly play a huge role, so their fans will love the continuation of their story. They're so flawed, but trying so hard to fix themselves and keep each other, no matter what they're up against. Their love is apparent, as is their dedication to each other and their determination to beat their addictions. Rose's younger sister Daisy is an intriguing character. I can't wait to learn more about her in the next book, Hothouse Flower. I'll also be happy to admit I'm more than a little in love with Lo's brother Ryke. If it's wrong to ship a Daisy/Ryke pairing, then I don't want to be right. "I've wanted so many things in life," he says softly, "but you're the one that has meant the most to me." Seriously, y'all. I could fangirl over this book all day long. Everything I've read by Krista and Becca Richie has been phenomenal, but this is downright brilliant. The control and loss of control, the power plays, the drama, the characters and their relationships... it just blew me away. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this book. It's engrossing and unpredictable. It took me through the full gamut of emotions. I laughed, I swooned, I cried. I just can't ask for anything else in a book. Except, maybe, MORE of Connor and Rose. I have a huge book hangover after this one and I'm not entirely sure I will ever be able to get enough of these characters. "Kiss the sky with me," Connor whispers, a beautiful smile pulling his lips, "and don't ever come down." I'd give this one ten stars if I could. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. All quotes come from the review copy and may differ from the final version.

From Our Blog: Allison's Review: The sex addict. The alcoholic. The daredevil. The jackass. The smartass. The virgin. They are the glorious cast of characters in Kiss the Sky. The Ritchie sisters are two of my favorite new authors. They have brought these characters to life, shared their pain and have made me feel strongly for each one. Their writing/dialogue is just fantastic! I cried and laughed out loud. I have a feeling they have a great career ahead of them. This story focuses on Rose Calloway, the virgin, and Connor Cobalt, the smartass. They are both very privileged, brilliant, Ivy League educated, driven individuals. They have been dating for over a year but Rose is still a virgin. Both are very closed off, afraid of loving someone else and letting themselves be loved. Rose decides they should all be part of a reality series documenting their everyday lives as a means of repairing damage done by the scandal regarding Lily and Loren and their addictions. These are well meaning intentions but honestly, ask yourself what good ever really comes from reality TV?? Over the course of the six month show we get to see Rose and Connor change and evolve and we learn even more about what's important to them, sacrifices they make etc. They are truly two of my favorite characters to date. I love their game of "f**, kill, marry" and their back and forth game of "guess whose quote this is". I can't recommend this book and this whole series enough. I'm on pins and needles waiting for the next installment - Hothouse Flower - Ryke and Daisy's story. I also can't wait to learn what more is in store for Loren and Lily in Thrive and Addicted After All.

This is a standalone spinoff of the Addicted series. You can see my reviews for those books by checking out my book list (on my blog, KDH Reviews). While it is possible to read this book without reading the others, I highly recommend you don't. Read the other books first! They are amazing and you'll (likely) enjoy this book even more. With all that out of the way, on to the review! WOW! This book was awesome. Krista and Becca Ritchie are, by far, my favorite New Adult authors. Their books just keep getting better. I need more. Now, please. I've been anticipating this book since I read about it on Goodreads. I'm digging what the authors are doing here. Which is this... The first three books (Addicted To You, Ricochet, Addicted For Now) are the first story arc for Lily and Lo; then we're given two standalone spinoff novels (Kiss the Sky & Hothouse Flower); and finally we'll get the last of Lily and Lo's story (Thrive & Addicted After All). I, once again, highly recommend reading the books in order! I loved everything about this book and hated absolutely nothing. That's so incredibly rare for me to say. In fact, I've been so surprised about how much I love this series. While I enjoy reading New Adult stuff (it's easily my favorite genre currently), I find it hard to find anything of real quality. This isn't a problem whatsoever here. The writing is fantastic. The characters are very well done (Every single one of them. Not a flat, boring character to be seen anywhere). The story is intriguing and I just keep wanting more. It's undeniable that I highly recommend this series. I cannot wait for the next book, Hothouse Flower, and anything else the authors throw at me!

I just can't get enough of this series! I'll admit, at first I was a little bummed that the story was taking a break from Lilly and Lo's and focusing on Rose and Connor...but oh my I was not disapointed at all. I loved the juicy drama between the characters since they were living together for the show. And of course there were some very, very steamy scenes that will not dissapoint. I'm trying to decide if I enjoyed Lo or Connor more...or maybe I'll have to wait until Match to see if Ryke will top them all :) Can't wait for the rest of the books to come out!!
