**STILL is the conclusion of Grip & Bristol's emotional journey. You must read FLOW, the prequel, and GRIP, book 1 before beginning STILL**

I'll be there. Through thick and thin. Ride or die. You can count on me.

The promises people make. The vows we take. Assumptions of the heart. Emotion tells us how we feel, but life...life has a way of plunging us in boiling water, burning away our illusions, testing our faith, trying our convictions. Love floating is a butterfly, but love tested is an anchor.

For Grip and Bristol, Love started at the top of the world On a Ferris wheel under the stars But when that love is tested, will they fly or fall?.

What is this I’m feeling? That would be all the feels. All. The. Feels. Still is the dynamic conclusion to Grip and Bristol’s love story, and to say it consumed me would be an inadequate tribute to Kennedy Ryan’s writing. I’m still in recovery mode.

Just when I thought I could not love Grip and Bristol more, this book takes their relationship to a whole new level. Opposites who attracted eight years ago, their unshakable bond is tested and proven time and time again. They are by no means perfect, but as a couple they come pretty darn close.

“Our love is the stuff of legends, rolled in Teflon, disaster-proof.”

This book has a little bit of something for every fan of the series. The infectious tenderness, humor, strife, and sultriness are a heady combination. Although it may seem incongruous for a romance novel to deal with controversial social issues, the integration of the hot button topic of racism is timely and fascinating. It continues to inflame Grip’s passion as an activist and impacts his relationship with Bristol in a way that makes their love far from trite.

I’m not at all surprised by Kennedy Ryan’s impeccable writing. I highlighted the hell out of this book! Grip is a poet and musician, so it’s only fitting that page after page is filled with lyrical poetry. In particular, the poem “Still” spoke to my heart and continues to resonate with me.

“Through years, through pain,
My heart will answer again and again, still.
Ask me in a million seconds, ask me in a billion years,
Do you love me?
And I will say still.”

There is not a single moment wasted in this riveting, haunting story. Still and the entire Grip series challenged my opinions, touched my soul, and completely enraptured me.

Always, evermore, even after. Still.

Recommended for fans of:
True love
Poetry
