Down to the bone
Refrain (Soul Series Book 3) - Kennedy Ryan

This is the 3rd book in the Soul series.  This book is NOT intended to be read alone.  It is written in a trilogy of the Soul series.  Please read this amazing set of books in order, and if you hurry you can get all of them at 99 cents!

 

Kai and Rhys story comes to conclusion with this gripping book just full of surprises.  I was excited to turn each page and eagerly wanted to finish the book!  Theirs is a true love story about a bond felt so deep.....

 

Rhys and Kai have already been through so much.  Can they stand much more?  I liked the flow of the story.  I felt like I was right there.  It is a really great love story where the emotions are right on the surface to be felt.

 

This was such a great read.  The book was very hard to put down.  I loved the characters and hope to see them in future stories.  I give this book a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

ABOUT THE BOOK:

 

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!

Refrain - Kennedy Ryan
ARC Review: Refrain (Soul) by Kennedy Ryan

Kai and Rhys' connection is so powerful it borders on obsession. Their relationship is all consuming to the point that neither sees themselves existing without the other. Although a sweet concept, it can also prove toxic when little by little a person loses themselves along the way. Refrain is tragic, haunting and emotionally climatic as the high and lows of this couples journey comes to a head. Kennedy Ryan knows how to grab a reader and hang on tight. She shows both the beauty and the tragedy that is LOVE. A stunning conclusion to a breathtaking series.

E X C E R P T:

 

She slides onto me, a scalding clasp of flesh. That first thrust steals our breath at the same time, pounds our hearts together, twines our souls into one accord. Rising, falling, she milks me with tight, shallow pumps, her movements barely perceptible, but rippling through me. She captivates me with the tiniest undulation of her hips and takes me so deep I’m sure I’ll come out on the other side of her. Her nails claw into my scalp, stirring a sharp pain into the bliss. She digs her fingers into my shoulders, gripping to hold on as I thrust into this tight, slick fantasy. I piston up and into her with enough force to break her, but she clutches me. Clings to me. I don’t want to come. I want to fuck her infinitely. If I could seal us in this moment, preserve it in amber, I would. I’m not just inside her body. We inhabit each other’s souls. And this thing watering her eyes, clogging my throat, clamping my chest, it’s more than emotion, more than a feeling that could fail or flee. It’s the most precious thing I’ve ever had. If this is light, it’s blinding until she is all I see. If this is sound, it’s music. We are the verse, we are the chorus. And as we come together, her cries harmonizing with mine, this love resounds. It’s loud; so deafeningly loud that all I hear is her. And all she hears is me. We are our own refrain.

Reading in Progress: Greek and Roman Ghost Stories, and also, (sigh), My Startling Problem
Greek and Roman Ghost Stories - Lacy Collison-Morley

So here's the deep, dark, not-really-secret - I startle ridiculously easily. The problem is mostly that when I'm really into reading something I'm focused on it entirely, and not really paying any attention to things around me. This means I can easily miss things like someone trying to catch my attention, the train station where I meant to exit, that the sun has suddenly set - you get the idea. But it also means that if I'm sitting and reading, and you walk up to me from the side I'm going to hop. As in, up, out of my chair, possibly landing back in my chair or on my feet. (If I'm standing I've been known to clear over a foot or two off the ground.) Now, I realize that this is indeed hysterical. (I can feel the expression on my face, and I'm certain it's also funny.) I kinda wish I could stop doing it. ...But I'm also not really going to work much at trying because yeah, not sure how. I like falling into a book like that.

 

That's all lead up to the fact that I did this today while waiting to get my hair cut. I quickly said "oh, oops! I was reading ghost stories!" Because I also had kinda made a gasping noise. (Dammit.) The really annoying thing?! They are not at all scary ghost stories.

 

More background: When I'm in my own fully decorated apartment, you'll see scattered around the place tons of Halloweenish decor such as skulls, bats, skeletons, etc. I have bookshelves full of anthologies of ghost stories, not to mention fiction and nonfictional books on death, vampire, film monsters - you get the idea. None of these things startle me, and in fact feel quite homey.

 

So you might wonder at this point, what exactly was I reading about that I was so absorbed by? It's not like I'd suggest rushing to read this book - Greek and Roman Ghost Stories, which is here on Gutenberg - because no, not scary, and it's not really a re-telling of stories. It's more of a series of essays citing random classical authors that mention ghosts. (More on that in the actual review. Eventually.)

 

Here's a couple of quotes I was pondering at the eek-startle moment. The first is longer so you can get an idea of the writing style - the book was published in 1912.
