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 readers audiences only.
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.

KISS THE SKY is the whole reason I started reading this series. I was playing ‘guess that book’ game with some friends and Bella wrote:
♦She’s a 23 year old virgin. She is super smart, comes from a wealthy family and has her own fashion line.
♦He’s 24, smart, cocky, alpha, wealthy arrogant. Dominant. He doesn’t believe in love. His first name and last name begin with the same letter.
When I looked the book up and saw it was about a reality TV show: “6 people + 6 months + 3 cameramen + 1 reality show = infinite drama.” I knew this book was for me. The only thing standing in my way was that I needed to read the other three books in the series before I could read this one. I’m so glad I took that journey because this book was so worth it.
I’ve been a Connor & Rose fan from the beginning. I love their intellectual banter that fuels their relationship. My favorite quote comes from Rose when she is thinking about her time spent on the reality tv show. (view spoiler) Rose’s life is so dramatic that her use of that metaphor seemed very fitting.
Addicted series is interconnected with two spin-offs. The authors have written the books in 3 “phases”. Each phase is a complete story line with a satisfying enough conclusion.
