New Release & Review: Refrain by Kennedy Ryan

This is the third book in the series, and not a stand alone, but having read all 3 books now, I would definitely recommend the entire series.  My review will be at the end of this post.

SYNOPSIS:
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!

 4 Electrified Guitars for Refrain

Refrain is the third book in Kennedy Ryan’s The Soul Series, and as such, it is not a standalone title.  You need to have read both of  Book 1, My Soul to Keep and Book 2, Down to My Soul, prior to starting on Refrain.  As it had been a few weeks since I had read the first two books, I almost felt like I should have done a quick review to refresh my memory as I opened Refrain, but I quickly realized that was not necessary as I remembered enough.

Our hero, Rhyson Gray, is the established rockstar (from his days a child prodigy to his late 20s, it is literally all he has ever known)who lands them in this blog, and our heroine is his girlfriend, Kai Pearson, who has gone from working in a small cafe as a waitress to rising celebrity in a pretty short period of time from the first book, to this, the third.  I am sure it can all be measured in months, and I feel safe in saying it has been less than six of those.  They met as she was taking vocal lessons from his uncle.  She has already danced in one (presumably rap) video showcasing her many years of dance lessons, and she has some dreams of becoming actress as well.  Just wanted to fill in a little background without spoilers for the first two books, and I will also mention that these Hollywood types can do drama, if nothing else.

It is a bit difficult to review a third book in a series without spoilers, so I will say this wraps up Rhyson and Kai’s story nicely, but not without delivering more drama than the first two stories combined.  Between the highly emotional scenes, the drama filled scenes, and the scenes showcasing wealth and insecurities, it does remember to bring the comedy relief that made the first two books really stand out from the crowd.  The chemistry between the hero and heroine is palpable throughout, without a doubt.  Most of the supporting characters from the previous tomes are back in some form or another, even if it is not much more than a fleeting mention.  There is also a note that Grip and Bristol’s story will be coming next.  The only thing keeping this book from being a full five stars has to do with truly connecting to the characters.  Again, the chemistry between the two is fantastic (and the fans who read rockstar romances largely for the erotic scenes will not be disappointed – the author excels at these, making it for adult audiences only), I just had trouble really investing in either of them.
