Review: Kiss the Sky by Krista & Becca Ritchie
Kiss the Sky
(Calloway Sisters #1, Addicted #2.1)
Author: Krista Ritchie, Becca Ritchie
Publisher: K.B. Ritchie
Publication: February 20, 2014
Genre: New Adult, Romance, Contemporary
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.
This New Adult Romance can be described as Friends meets The Real World. Expect fist fights, drugs, sex of varying degrees, crude humor and competitive alpha males. Definitely for mature readers audiences only.
“Kiss the sky with me, and don’t ever come down.”

This beautiful continuation of the Addicted series couldn’t get any better! I just love it! In this book, we see more of the genius lovers Rose Calloway and Connor Cobalt. And like the first books in the series, their team-up and chemistry were just totally good!
What I loved about Kiss the Sky is that it’s totally refreshing. I haven’t read a book that basically shows the characters’ strengths and flaws through a reality TV show. Reading this book made me feel like I’m basically watching Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Only this book features Princesses of Philly which is the name of the Calloway sisters’ reality TV show. Like, seriously how amazing is that? 🙂
The romance in this book was so much better! There were times when I can’t help but grin from ear to ear because of the characters’ swoony and entertaining dialogues and interactions– especially the sexy banters! And there were times when I try not to burst out laughing because of the funny scenes.
There were also a lot of dramas that happened in this book. But unlike the previous books, they were just light. And oh, the smexy scenes… who can’t resist them when they focus on the virgin perfectionist and the smartass hero?
The writing, as always, was brilliant and real. Krista and Becca Ritchie totally nailed a New Adult novel that has it all. Literally. Hands down to these amazing authors! I will definitely read the next books in this series. 🙂
