Kiss the Sky: TikTok made me buy it! (Calloway Sisters Book 1) Kindle Edition
Rivals. Lovers. Soulmates?
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 egotistical 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 getting to the heart of this ruthless woman is going to be harder than Connor thinks – no matter how much he wants it.

YES!! Rose and Connor are hands down my favourite couple from this series. Wow, what a powerhouse they are. Probably some of the best banter I have ever read in a book. Kiss the Sky has the perfect balance of humour, emotion, steam and love throughout. It is unreal. Even if this book was 500 pages of Connor and Rose narrating paint drying on a wall I would still give it 5 stars. That's how much I love them. Also, I have to say, Krista and Becca Ritchies' writing style is top tier. Like so so good. Okay, I am going to stop writing now before I can't stop. Go read this. Bye.

I have to admit I was slightly sceptical about starting my Addicted series journey. A sex addict and a alcoholic are not normally something I'd add to my must read list. But Im a sucker for a series, and was in desperate need of new material on my Kindle. So I downloaded what's available in the series, including Kiss the Sky late one Thursday night. I started the books with Addicted to You on Friday morning, and they quite literally took over my life.. I read on the treadmill, while eating breakfast, on the train, during lunch, over dinner and almost non-stop for the next 48 hours. These girls can WRITE!
You can most definitely read Kiss the Sky without reading the other books in the Addicted series, but you're doing yourself an injustice by not starting at the very beginning of the Calloway journey. But if you shy away from the pretty heavy story line of Addicted to You, definitely read Kiss the Sky, it'll change your mind :)
I have to say in the Addicted novels I wasn't the biggest fan of Rose or Connor, but Kiss the Sky made me love them, immensely. So much so, that Ive re-read their story twice and have shelved it in my Must Re-Read collection on my Kindle.. very few books make it to this hallowed ground :)
What happens behind the scenes in a reality tv show? How much editing goes on behind the scenes? A lot, especially this one.
Rose and Connor are amazing together. Their chemistry is off the charts and the fact that Rose is still a virgin going into the show is one of the highlights. No spoilers about what happens there, it's worth reading just to find out.
They're also amazing individually, each with their own goals and careers and relationships with the other people on the show, Roses sisters Lilly and Daisy and Lilly's boyfriend Loren and his brother Ryke.
I loved all these characters, how they interacted and looked out for each other despite the conflicts.
This is my first book from these authors and I can't decide whether to read the rest of this series or to go back and start at the start!

The Calloway Sisters is the spin-off series from Krista & Becca Ritchie's Addicted series. Originally I thought Calloway Sisters came first however I was kindly told I was wrong. That being said I still think you should be able to read a spin-off series without having read the original series but I'm guessing I would have gotten on a lot better with this book had I started this in the right place.
I always felt like I was on the back foot. I didn't feel like I really understood these characters as much as I should because I was missing out on the beginning of their relationship. They had an unconventional relationship with Connor convinced he wasn't and wouldn't fall in love and Rose being ok with that. I felt they had really great arcs but I just felt like I was always missing out on really understanding their relationship and their connection.
I don't know if I would have felt different had I started with the right series but I never really fancied the Addicted series so I guess my journey with this series is over.
I refuse to say that this was a super bad book because it wasn’t. I just couldn’t get into it. I couldn’t connect with the characters. I found the heroine very selfish and I think the Hero was too accepting of her behaviour. I’m a strong believer in ‘if you’re not ready to be in a relationship, then don’t be in one’ and I strongly believe that she wasn’t ready to be in a relationship. Like I said I didn’t finish, I just about got to the halfway mark and didn’t have the patience for her selfishness. I also found it a bit stressful and hectic.
Second, this book is a slow burn romance, so if that’s something you enjoy then perhaps this is more your kind of book.
Thirdly, I did enjoy aspects of this book. Like the humour between the hero and the heroine as well as the general humour of the book. I found myself laughing quite a few times. I do like the writing style of the writer, she does know how to end a chapter with a BANG! so I couldn’t rate this lower than 3 stars. I feel like her books are meant for a different type of reader.
Both Conned & Rose are strong independent people , but they both have a lot of pressure on their shoulders .
Rose's business starts to go down when her sister Lily's sex addiction is all over the media. Rose decides to do a reality show , but she has sold herself to the devil, & his name is Scott.
The show has Rose, Conner, Lily, her fiance Loren, Rose's youngest sister Daisy, & Loren's half brother Ryke.
Scott puts himself in the show & always exits it to make him look good & the others bad.
So much happens in this story, it is none stop , there is never a dull moment .
Scott tries to break everyone but what he does only makes them stronger
Throughout this book, I kept posting how much I am in love and lust with Connor and by the end I just wanted to have his babies!!!!
***“I’ve wanted so many things in life,” he says softly, “but you’re the one that has meant the most to me.” Translation: I love you.***
I have been swept away by the Addicted series and Lo and Lily's journey through their recovery from their respective addictions but I have secretly been waiting to get my hands on Rose and Connor's story the most.
These books are so cleverly written and have the right balance of humour, hot sex, trauma and everyday life. I know some people get a bit obsessed with books which include a twenty something year old virgin in them but this story is so perfectly written that it works well.
This story is based around the three Calloway sisters, as well as Connor, Lo and Ryke, as they film a six month long reality show in the hope to address the ongoing fallout following the unfortunate way Lily and Lo’s addictions were exposed. As the family’s companies suffer as a result of the sex and alcohol scandal, Rose is determined to try to try to turn around the lives of all those involved.
Turning to ex-boyfriend Scott, Rose unwittingly enters the viper’s nest by signing a contract with him to produce their reality show. Scott becomes the catalyst to everything which goes wrong in their lives from this point forward and Rose and Connor in particular find themselves the target of his animosity.
As expected, the banter between Connor and Rose continues in this story but slowly Rose’s thorns retract and Connor captures her heart so thoroughly that the sparks literally fly off the pages and by the end of their European adventure, I was a complete and utter mess and declaring my undying love for Connor! In this book you get to see a completely different side of Connor which literally caused me to fall apart!
***He stares at me deeply, whispering, “Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.” One of my favorite quotes. I turn a fraction, just enough so that our lips don’t suddenly collide. “Shakespeare,” I breathe.***
Connor aside, I also love Lo’s and Ryke’s personalities and I can’t wait for more of Ryke and Daisy’s inevitable story.
Krista and Becca Ritchie really need to be praised for a superbly written set of stories which have totally consumed me.
