Flow (Grip 0.5) by Kennedy Ryan

It feels fresh like a beginning, but it also feels like we’ve known each other for years.

For those who LOVE Krista & Becca Ritchie as much as I do, you need to check out this book! They recommended it after all, and I can see why. If you are looking for some strong characters and emotive writing like KB Ritchie, look no further.

This was a beautiful story of a girl taking a leap to mend a broken bridge with her twin brother, Rhyson. They haven’t seen and rarely spoken in five years. But things are shaky. It’s hard to put the past behind you when it molds your present.

Rhyson, hesitant and nervous to let her into his life, asks his best friend to pick her up from the airport and watch over her while he works late. Avoidance – maybe. Good work ethic – maybe that, too.

But sometimes you have to go with the flow. Best friend, Marlon – AKA Grip, picks up Bristol from the airport, and from that moment on, it’s . . .

Complex and effortless.

I was enamored by how these two communicated. Even over controversial issues of race. It was beautiful to read about their open-mindedness, and also, their intrigue and desire for more with each other.

I could not stop grinning when Bristol and Grip were together. And that chocolate charm!


This story was enthralling.


We both gave each other space to be misunderstood, because we really wanted to understand.

The main reason I’m giving it less than a 5 star rating is because of some grammar errors I found. Otherwise, this will definitely be one of my top fave NA/Contemporary/Romance books! And I’m excited to see if the next book – Grip – will be just as intense and captivating.

Also, this book does end in a bit of a cliffhanger. Be warned. It’s a doozy!

Rating: 4.5 stars!!


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.
