Refrain is the amazing conclusion to Rhyson and Kai’s love story. I loved it! This book was like a super long epilogue. It has everything I want in the final chapter of a love story. It was beautiful and romantic, and there was some drama. The only thing I missed, was a really far look in their future, especially after what happened near the end. Maybe I’ll read more about their future in Grip and Bristol’s (secondary characters) books. I’ll definitely read those, because I want to read about th ...more

When I learned that Kennedy Ryan will write a novella for one of my favorite couple, Rhyson & Kai, I couldn’t be happier. Just can’t let go of this couple. But she did more, she wrote a full novel, you are very kind to your readers who clamor for more Rhyson & Kai. Thank you!

Rhyson continuously shows how much Kai means to her, how much he value her opinion, her thoughts, she’s his everything. Kai learned her lesson not to keep anything from Rhyson. And their drama-free relationship, base
When I started reading Refrain the first thought that came to me was how much I'd missed Kai and Rhyson. It was so easy to get back into the story of them. It was almost as if they were a part of me. Every emotion I had and went through while ready My Soul To Keep and Down To My Soul came back in a flash and I was enveloped in a bubble of love. Love for these two fabulous characters and the love for Kennedy Ryan's writing.

A beautiful end to a beautiful series.

I was beyond happy to catch up with this lovable couple, and seeing how their relationship had progressed. Rhysons POV was my favourite part, how possessive he is over Kai, he loves that woman something fierce. Their relationship is put to the ultimate test in part 3, with a lot of things trying to get in their way of a HEA.

First things first, I am the original Mrs. Rhyson Grey. I have loved him since I beta read the first Soul book 13 months ago. Now that is clear with everyone, you can also thank me for this book as I badgered Kennedy for more Rhyson.

You might have thought that Rhyson and Kai's story was told but there is more to tell. This is by far the SEXIEST book Kennedy has written. In addition to the sexy times, there is fear, sadness, utter joy, and character development for Rhyson and Bristol.

I loved this

Kennedy Ryan has done it yet again. I continue to be amazed by what this woman can create.

It's no secret I love this series,RHYSON and Kai are truly one of the best book couples I've been lucky enough to experience. When I finished book 2, I just knew this story could not be over, and if I'm speaking truthfully I never want it to end. Refrain seals it all together, all the pieces you knew you needed to truly say goodbye to these two have been done and said. The love these two bring to life is b

“...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.”

Well I'll be damned. I don't think I'll ever get enough doses of Rhyson Gray. Ever. I'm honestly over the moon that Kennedy Ryan decided to give us one more book of Rhyson Gray and Kai Pearson, and a full-length one at that. It'll never get old. They just keep getting better and better. They make me fall deeper in love each time. And I think this one's by far my favor

“Perfect love casts out fear.”

This is one of those series that I have adored from the very beginning. There was something about Rhyson and Kai from the very beginning that captured my full attention. They were an adorable couple who had mountains to climb and seemingly had the world against them, yet they survived, team #Kaison.

Pure perfection!! I read the last page of Down to My Soul and did two things: yelled "NOOOOO" because I didn't want it to be over. Then I politely asked (okay, begged) Kennedy Ryan to please, for the love of God, give us more Rhys & Kai. Apparently I wasn't the only reader who fell so deep in love with this couple and their story, because Kennedy gave us Refrain - her thank you to all of the fans of the Soul series.

Refrain is a beautifully written, hot and intense conclusion to what has become one of my favorite series.

Rhys and Kai are still crazy in love, but not out of the woods quite yet. Everything about them is more intense, their connection, their insane chemistry, and the tension around them. I spent most of this book on the edge of my seat with my heart in my throat. Kennedy Ryan takes us on a wild and very unexpected ride filled with scorching hot scenes and jaw dropping suspense.

3.5 stars

After basking in the goodness of DOWN TO MY SOUL, I wasn't sure about needing more from Kai and Rhyson; I liked where it was left. However, I quickly enjoyed being in the happy zone with these two.

As the book moved on, I went back and forth in how I felt about the book, some great story, some hit-you-in-the-gut lines but also some unnecessary angst. I did struggle with Rhyson in this book due to his over-alpha control and Kai's capitulation to this at times. This was my last favourite

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 heart

“I see you, baby. I live you.”

This is a third and final book of Rhyson & Kai's EPIC love story! Cries…

In the previous two books, Rhyson and Kai went through a very tumultuous journey but they prevailed and finally found their way to each other. Refrain brought back these beautiful characters and their journey to HEA. I did not realize how much I missed them until I started reading Refrain. I just fell in love with these two love birds all over again.

I'm so ridiculously happy that we got more from Kai and Rhyson! The passion is obviously still there, but as fans, we finally find out what came next for these two beloved characters. And what's more, the hardships and unexpected set-backs that lurk around the corner.

Refrain was packed with ups and downs, joy and heartache, and twists and turns...everything to get your blood pumping! I loved every page in this book, and the anticipation and longing for a HEA for these two was a nail-biter. I don

What a perfect way to end this series! How Kennedy Ryan was able to pack so much into these 19 chapters is beyond me. Refrain is book 3 in the Soul Series and should only be read after reading books 1 and 2.

Refrain was like one big amazing epilogue. It picks up pretty much where book 2 left off and gives us all the #Kaison goodness. There is some drama and a twist thrown in for good measure, but everything we love about this couple is there and then some. We also get more of Grip and Bristol, mo

I've loved this couple so much from the start of book one, My Soul To Keep. Usually in a series, things start to get mundane, which is definitely not the case here! Kai and Rhys have my freaking heart. By far my favorite book of the series. Then there's that special moment where the title makes perfect sense. My heart was so full. I SWOONED so hard! So so hard! I can't even take it!! I felt like I died twice while reading. There was so much love, just so much love, then came the tears. I literal ...more
What a journey these two have been one. When you think it's going on way, life throws you curveballs. I have to admire Rhys here, despite his growly, demanding, alpha ways. I actually can appreciate his growth of character and how deep his devotion runs. Both of them. It's definitely not boring and now their story comes full circle. A meaningful one for them. But I'm happy that Grip and Bristol will have them in it hopefully.

"We always say we want honesty until the truth slips in like a dagger between our ribs."

Refrain was the perfect finale to an incredible series. Rhyson & Kai's love is soul deep, but sometimes love isn't enough. Sometimes life throws hell in the path of your heaven and you have to choose between yourself and the one you love. Kai followed her dreams to be a star, but when she met him her dreams paled in comparison. He became her dream. He pushed his way into her heart. He saw her. Would h

OK so anyone and I mean any ONE of the people who have read my reviews knows my *throat clearing* sometimes abrasive and dismissive opinions on romances spread across a trio of books. I HATE THEM like grim death.
