Series: Grip #0.5
Published by Self-Published on 2/25/17
In 8 years, Marlon James will be one of the brightest rising stars in the music industry.
Bristol Gray will be his tough, no-nonsense manager.
But when they first meet, she's a college student finding her way in the world, and he's an artist determined to make his way in it.
From completely different worlds, all the things that should separate them only draw them closer.
It's a beautiful beginning, but where will the story end?
FLOW is the prequel chronicling the week of magical days and nights that will haunt Grip & Bristol for years to come.
GRIP is the full-length conclusion of their story.
In Flow, Bristol flies to LA to connect with her estranged twin, but ends up connecting with the last person she’d expect, and in such a way that she’ll never forget.
Flow follows rap superstar Marlon James, and powerhouse Bristol Gray before they ruled their worlds. In this intimate prequel, Marlon is a poor wannabe with a host of talent, and a spark and passion so intense that Bristol is unable to stay away from him. In this electric and thought-provoking novella, Bristol is on a mission to put her family back together, but ends up finding out that some bonds are stronger than even blood; sometimes you meet people who dig so deep that you feel them in your marrow.
Flow, and the full story, Grip, are standalones featuring two characters that are present in Kennedy Ryan’s Soul Series. You don’t need to read those books before reading Flow as the story arcs don’t overlap. But, I imagine a new reader who reads this love story prequel might label it as “insta-love.” But, seeing as how the characters themselves are thrown by the quick intensity of their connection, then that might not necessarily be a negative. Sometimes sparks catch and an inferno builds rapidly, and there’s nothing we can do about it except watch it and feel the heat. With Flow, that burn is extreme, and by the end, you’ll be dying for Grip, unsure of whether you want a soothing relief, or, if you need the total combustion. Here’s a spoiler: you’ll get both.
