***Amazon Top 100 Bestseller***


What people are saying…

“Find time to read this book. Don’t put it on the TBR and get to it later…make time for it NOW. It was amazing… something important and special. When romance is relevant that is when it shines the brightest. I haven’t read anything this compelling and unput-downable in a long time.” — Jay Crownover, New York Times Bestselling Author
Kennedy Ryan took some of the most complex issues of our time and made them poetic, insightful, and deliciously sexy!…I can’t stop thinking about this book! The story reads like a movie…5 massive, gripping stars from me! One of my favorite reads this year. Maybe ever.” — Adriana Locke, USA Today Bestselling Author
“Aside from being one of the most engaging and well-written romances I have read in 2017, GRIP is also an important book we should all read. It’s like nothing you’ve read before. It touches the issues no one talks about in our community. And it’s a MUST-READ.” — LJ Shen, Top 10 Amazon Bestselling Author



Resisting an irresistible force wears you down and turns you out.
I know.
I’ve been doing it for years.
I may not have a musical gift of my own, but I’ve got a nose for talent and an eye for the extraordinary.
And Marlon James – Grip to his fans – is nothing short of extraordinary.
Years ago, we strung together a few magical nights, but I keep those memories in a locked drawer and I’ve thrown away the key.
All that’s left is friendship and work.
He’s on the verge of unimaginable fame, all his dreams poised to come true.
I manage his career, but I can’t seem to manage my heart.
It’s wild, reckless, disobedient.
And it remembers all the things I want to forget.
