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.

I love this intertwining Addicted /Calloway Sisters thing! The Ritchie sisters were super smart to set their books up this way. All of the Addicted books have been very intense so far and adding the Calloway Sisters into the mix brings a little (and I do mean just a little) relief from the tension of Lo and Lily’s story. We still get to see them, but through Rose and Conner’s eyes. It showed a bit of a different side to the couple that I loved. But I need to get back to the main focus of Kiss the Sky: Connor and Rose.

Kiss the Sky begins where Addicted for Now left off. Thanks to Lily’s secret being divulged by the media, both the Hale and Calloway companies are experiencing some major losses. Rose has a plan to restore faith in the two families and their companies. She, her sisters and their friends will star in a reality T.V. show to prove to the public that they’re not who they’ve been made out to be. Staring in a reality T.V. show should be easy, but the gang soon learns producer Scott isn’t above creating fake drama to up ratings.

I have loved Connor and Rose since they came on the scene in Addicted to You, but it was fun to get to know them better. They’re both super smart, outspoken, and loyal. That’s where their similarities end, though. Connor is confident and calm, where Rose is a little OCD. The way he broke down Rose’s barriers when it came to sex and love was so much fun to read. I have to admit I wasn’t 100% down with Connor and Rose’s sex life, though. Rose’s willingness to jump right into Connor’s desires surprised me since she was normally so in control. I got that she wanted to let him lead in this aspect of their lives, but I just found her acceptance a tad off since she was a virgin.

As for the reality T.V. show aspect of this book, I loved and hated it. I loved that it gave this book a different feel and all of the characters a new and exciting experience. I didn’t like Scott. I hated him. He was the perfect villain. So I guess I’m not really complaining about him. Haha. Scott just put me on edge waiting for the next horrible surprise.

I love this Addicted /Calloway Sisters series so much! I’ve been obsessed with reading every book. I can’t put them down and find myself spending all of my free time reading them. I would highly recommend Kiss the Sky to New Adult readers, but you MUST start off at the beginning of the series to get the full enjoyment of this book.
