Blurb: 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.
I have to start with just saying that I’d be hard pressed to find a more relevant book for today’s issues in America. This book tackles the black and blue debate. And it tackles it in the best and most beautiful way.
The romance, or Bristol fighting the romance, is such a huge part of this story. And you will certainly want to knock some sense into her more than once. She can be downright aggravating! And the whole sleeping around while you’re in love with someone else will just never make sense to me, Grip. That’s just me. But, when they work things out, it’s chemistry at its finest. Holy Hotness!!! And some super sweet, swoon-worthy moments.
BUT, it was Ryan’s attention to the black and blue issue that just made this book for me. For that alone I wish everyone had to read this book! She forces you to see clearly things from every side of the issue. She will challenge you to search your heart and open your mind. Tears will be shed. And above all, she’ll encourage you to put down HATE and discrimination.4.5 Stars!!
