People dream of a love that runs deep. So deep it feels like it's always been with you, just waiting for the person who'll own your heart and soul forever. So few ever find it, but for Rhyson Gray and Kai Pearson, happily ever after was only the beginning...
One of the biggest rock stars in the world and one of the brightest rising stars make a life together. Sometimes it's glamour-filled days and blissed out nights, but it's mostly staying true in the too-bright glare of the spotlight. It's long stretches where the road is lonely and the work is hard. It's living in a love that's the safest place you know even while danger lurks at your door.
Book 3 of The Soul series is an emotionally-charged epic conclusion that had to be told and should not be missed for fans of this series and this couple!
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Just when you thought you understood the deep love between Rhyson and Kai, the author gifts us with this. Her words, these characters, their love? They are a testament to love and how love truly bears all things.
“You keep making me fall in love with you over and over and over. When does it stop?”
“It won’t stop.”
Rhyson and Kai have been through so much to get to where they are now. Their love has been challenged, they’ve faced adversity and heartbreak. Through it all, their love has never wavered. Never faltered. Their love simply existed. At all times. In Refrain, they are nothing short of dedicated and committed to each other. But as they grow in love, life has more in store for them. It’s a challenge that their love has no problem facing head on.
“It overwhelms, the privilege of his love.”
Rhyson and Kai’s love and life story is just beginning. And this was a perfect way to truly see just how much these two complete each other. Their love is overwhelming. Powerful. Palpable. And you feel it with every word of their story. Rhyson wants nothing more than to protect Kai. His love is unyielding. He loves with his entire heart. His entire being. His love knows no bounds. He loves fiercely. Loudly. And Kai’s love for Rhyson testifies to the fact that love always wins. The emotions felt in this book echo the most beautiful love song. It is truly a privilege to read a love story like theirs.
“….this love resounds.”
“It’s so loud; so deafingly loud that all I hear is her. And all she hears is me. We are our own refrain.”
The writing in Refrain left me breathless. With it’s lyrical and poetic prose, I felt my heart beat with every word and declaration of love between Rhyson and Kai. The author has this amazing talent to place her readers within the heart and soul of her characters. Her gift of storytelling continues to blow me away. The pacing was genius. Just when I thought I couldn’t fall in love with her writing, once again she proves why she continues to rank as a top author of mine. This book is not one of those where the author simply adds more drama. This story serves a deeply important purpose. It is a beautiful addition to Rhyson and Kai’s story. You know the author put her all into this one from the moment you start reading. Her words take on such meaning. There is power in her words. And that? That is how you write romance.
“Perfect love casts out fear.”
I read Refrain in one sitting. I never wanted to part with with this story. I was simply mesmerized and enthralled by the words and characters of this story. I didn’t think the author could add any more to their story, but she did. Effortlessly. The angst and romance had a perfect balance. The execution of this story demonstrates the unparalleled talent of this author. Refrain was a brilliant and touching final installment to this masterpiece of a book series. I don't think any review can do this book justice. There are no words to describe just how deeply this story and the rest of this series truly moved me. Beautiful and poignant, this is what every love story should be.
“That’s because I save the best parts of myself for you.”
I just can't write about myself in third person for one more bio! I'm a wife, a mom, a writer, an advocate for families living with autism. That's me in a nutshell. Crack the nut, and you'll find a Southern girl gone Southern California who loves pizza and Diet Coke, and wishes she got to watch a lot more television. You can usually catch me up too late, on social media too much, or FINALLY putting a dent in my ever-growing TBR. I love to hear from readers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
