Synopsis: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.

People hope to touch the sky. I dream of kissing it.
I Forever want to Kiss the Sky with Rose and Connor! I read Addicted to You by Krista & Becca Ritchie last year and instantly became a fan of their work. When I heard of KISS THE SKY I knew I had to read it. Who wouldn't want to read a book with a setting of a reality t.v. show and with all the characters in the addicted series? All I have to say right now is that I am experiencing a book hangover right now.
I want to clarify that you don't' have to read the Addicted Series, because this is a spin-off from the series.
She gives all of herself to the people she cares.
Finally a strong heroine that is sarcastic, intelligent, strong-minded, fashionable, and has the attitude to smash any guy down. Rose is one of my favorite heroine's I've read this year. I loved her cold bitchy attitude, because this is just her way to passionately defend her beliefs and the people she loves. As you all know Rose is a virgin, and if you didn't' know now you do. But she's not your typical weak, make-dumb-decisions virgin that we always read about in the New Adult genre. Krista & Becca Ritchie made Rose a strong and smart virgin that makes her stand out from the rest. Rose has a few problems in her life, but she is strong enough to get through them. Rose's character feels so real and this is something that I love about Krista & Becca Ritchie, they make their characters feel real. There is not one single thing that I didn't love about Rose.
He wears confidence like his most expensive suit, with style and dignity and so much charm.
Connor has become one of my all-time favorite book boyfriends. Who knew his outrageous intelligence would make him attractive and hot to me :D! Most of the time I'm attracted to the guys because of their physic, and then their actions in the story. Why? Because this is how most authors introduce them to us readers. Connor has a problem letting others see his true emotions, because he likes to be seen as a guy who is in control of everything. When he walks in a chaotic room everyone notices his presence and he gives and calms down. He is just the guy who knows how to play everyone's games and he knows how to get what he wants in life. I was instantly attracted and swooning over Connor's smart ass attitude, confidence, dominance, strong presence, French dialogue, and his skilled Magic Mike dancing.
I'm the king to Rose's queen.
Connor and Rose are one of my favorite couples of 2014! I loved that both their presence were strong in the story, and when they are together it is just right in your face-in a good way. Connor and Rose take being smart to a whole different level. They make being smart into sexy and hot! Connor and Rose are very competitive and don't like to loss, which is why their relationship is never boring. I loved, loved, loved their French dialogue in the story. Now, the sex scenes were just HOT!!! I don't know how many times I had to stop and fan myself. Thank you Krista & Becca Ritchie for making Connor and Rose stand on an equal grounds relationship.
6 people + 6 months + 3 cameramen + 1 reality show = infinite drama.
Even thought this is Rose and Connor's story, the rest of the character's from the Addicted to You series are part of the story. I loved the idea that the characters are being filmed for a reality t.v. show. When I was reading Kiss the Sky I actually felt that I was watching, yes, watching a reality t.v. show being filmed. That's how real Krista & Becca Ritchie made the story and the characters. I don't know how many times I laughed my ass off, because there are so many funny things happening in the story with all the guys and girls. I think now is a good time to mention that I HATED, LOATHED, wanted to strangle Scott Van Wright. I have never hated a character this much before. He is like a pestering fly that you just want to smash. Rant over. I just thought this was something unique and original in the new adult genre.
"Kiss the sky with me, and don't ever come down."
Kiss the Sky by Krista & Becca Ritchie will leave you wanting to read more! When I reached the end, I didn't want to believe it. I kept scrolling and wishing more words would magically appear, because I didn't want it to end. I seriously wanted to highlight the whole entire book- that's how much I loved every page, every sentence, and every word in this story. Can we please get a Rose and Connor novella? I kissed the sky and I never want to come down from this blissful high.
Final Verdict: 5 Stars
About the Authors
Krista Ritchie has a clone...or someone who looks exactly like her. If she's not writing books with her twin sister, she's pouring over entertainment news and ingesting copious amounts of pop culture. She likes tennis, that thing called the TV, and beating Becca (her clone) on Sega Genesis. She created YA Book Exchange to combat her book buying addiction and started Nawanda Files, a YA Book Blog that features books into movies news, to share her love for all things bookish. Oh, and she does something called science. Whatever that is. Krista & Becca Ritchie write New Adult books that make you cringe, gasp, and go ooh-la-la. (If you do that sort of thing.) They are currently working on the spin-offs and final books in the Addicted series.
