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 Standalone 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  readersaudiences only.




"I want you for eternity, not for a brief finish line.
        There's no one after you."

 Wow this book was amazing! I couldn't put it down! This book reminds me the show "Keeping up with the Kardashians" And I really love that show, I'm a big fan, so now you can understand how much I love this book! :)) While I was reading this I felt like I was there with them! This is one of those book you will want to read over and over again!
Rose is willing to do anything to make her business successful again... the question is what will she have to do?

  A reality show starring herself,her boyfriend Conner, her sister Lily, Lily’s boyfriend Lo, her sister Daisy and Ryke. Rose convinces her family and friends to participate in this reality show to help her restore her dream.

But did she truly know what she was her family and friends into?

 Once filming begins we can see the not so perfect side of the perfect couple that is Rose and Connor. Connor, is smartass but he isn't perfect, he had a not so perfect childhood. And Rose, she is not so selfish. She cares for her sisters and she will do anything to protect them! In this book Rose and Connor try to take care of everybody and they must decide what they are willing to give up in order to stay sane.

I fell in love with Connor and Rose...

Connor....mmmm He had me swooning all the time! He is a smartass, sexy, hot, competitive, possessive,successful! He insists that love has no place in his life and while he cares for Rose, love is not in the cards for him. Rose accepts this because she knows he has let her into his life more than anyone before!Rose is competitive too but also she is an independent, confident virgin! She has her weaknesses and she is just like any other person.And the scenes between them are so hot!!!!!
"I'm going to spread you so wide,Rose.Your whole body will ache for my hard c@ck."
"You'll come before I fill every inch of you."
 You also will fall in love with Ryke and Daisy! I really can't wait for their book <333
Kiss the Sky was sexy,hilarious and emotional! The story moves at a good pace and there were twists and turns that totally took me off guard! The characters in this book were so well developed!!
I recommend it to everyone!!!If you like humor, angst and some hot and steamy sex this is what you need!

Alcoholic.Sex addict.Virgin.Smartass.Daredevil.Jackass


★★★★★ 4.5 stars!

"You're not a pit stop. You're my finish line."

Ever since meeting Rose Colloway and Connor Cobalt in the Addicted-series, I've been fascinated by this perfectly matched yet constantly arguing couple. To say that I was looking forward to reading this book would be an understatement. Kiss the Sky was one of my most highly anticipated releases of 2014 and I can honestly say it fully lived up to my expectations!

Virgin. Smartass. Sex addict. Alcoholic. Daredevil. Jackass.

"6 people + 6 months + 3 cameramen + 1 reality show = infinite drama. I've done the math." - Rose

Ever since Lily's sex addiction became public knowledge, things have been going downhill for Colloway Couture. So, Rose has come up with a plan to polish up the image of the Colloway sisters and raise their popularity to new heights: their own reality show.

Now Rose, Connor, Lily, Lo, Daisy and Ryke are all living together for the next six months while being filmed by three cameramen under the direction of the obnoxious producer named Scott. And of course all of them living so closely together provides for a LOT of drama…. but I enjoyed every second of it!

Rose Colloway is an independent, strong, confident woman who doesn't need a man to complete her life. But, ever since she started dating Connor she's started to realize having him with her brings all the more stability and peace in her life. He's one of the few people who can handle her and who even seems to know her better than she knows herself.

But Rose also has a problem with intimacy. She's still a virgin, something she's never made a secret or been ashamed of. And she fears once Connor "wins" her virginity, he'll break up and move on to the next challenge. So, even though she's starting to love him more and more every day, she's still afraid to let him get too close to winning her over.

"People hope to touch the sky. I dream of kissing it." - Connor

Connor Cobalt is ambitious, wickedly smart, arrogant, but also a little "undetached". He doesn't believe in love and he's convinced that true love only makes you do stupid things. And if there's one thing this smartass refuses to be labeled as, it's being stupid. So, even though he cares tremendously about Rose, he doesn't easily admit his true feelings. It was fun to see them constantly going back and forth and I loved their competitive banter and bickering and even their weird texting habits ;)

"Why am I with you? You're so conceited, arrogant-"

"Narcissistic," I add, "attractive, lovable, brilliant."

"That wasn't an invitation for you to compliment yourself."

"No? My bad, I thought we were listing my best qualities."

Connor did manage to surprise me a few times though. Who knew "cool" and composed Connor was (view spoiler) But in a way, it also made perfect sense for the story to take that turn and it made reading how the dynamic between him and Rose evolved all the more fun to read! Within the group, Connor was always the one who stayed calm and had the ability to take charge when the arguments inside the house were threatening to escalate.

Towards the ending, everything might have been handled a little too smoothly and fairytale sweet, but honestly, that did not ruin the story as a whole for me.
Overall, I really enjoyed Rose and Connor's drama filled, romantic, sexy and funny story. Although Lily and Lo are still my favorite couple, these two come in a close second. Krista & Becca Ritchie are easily becoming my new favorite authors of the New Adult genre and I'm already looking forward to find out what they have next in store for us!

Although Kiss the Sky is a spin-off story that can be read as a standalone, I would advise reading the Addicted series first in order to fully enjoy your reading experience:
