Blog Tour -- The Song Remains the Same

Author: Kelli Jean
Series: NOLA's Own Series, Book #3
“Kenna stood strong, taking my grief into herself. In that moment, if the world had truly threatened to fall, I had no doubt my Baby Girl would hold it up.”

A pillar of strength, Kenna only grows stronger as time passes. I’ve known from the beginning that I was the weak link between us. Always, she’s risen above and beyond the darkness of the unknown that threatens to suck me down. This time…I’ll have to crawl out of that darkness on my own.

“What we have—the kind of love we share—comes at a price. The universe demands it. It’s not free, and it shouldn’t be.”

So many souls make up the fabric of the music. Thousands upon thousands of years, millions of eyes and ears, hands and hearts have seen, heard, created and felt it. There’s only one who sings to me, and in the face of the unknown, I watch him lose the language of the soul. The pain and loss for Phil is so great, I have no way to bring the symphony back into his being, as he has done for me so many times.

Within me for now, for always…The Song Remains the Same.

“What do you see in me?” she asked. “Everythin’,” I replied, even though she couldn’t hear me. Lying down so that we were face-to-face, I said, “I see strength and love…so much love. Baby Girl. A steady stream of it, flowin’ out of you and cleansin’ the ones who are lucky enough to step foot in it. I see hurt and struggle, acceptance…forgiveness. Oh, Baby…” Leaning forward, I pressed my lips to hers, drowning in her scent, her taste. “I see my future, our future,” I said, my lips moving over hers. “And it’s so f* huge, so amazing’. It’s all love and love and more love.”

I admit, I read this book directly after finishing No Quarter. Which I had read immediately after I read Over the Hills and Far Away.  Now, with reviewing, it only seems that fair to address the Series first and foremost. I have to say…it was like nothing I’ve experienced. And yes, I say experience because that’s exactly what it felt like. I didn’t just read these books, I lived them. I laughed and cried with these people, I felt their words, their emotions, their lives. I can’t remember how many times goosebumps covered my skin, water leaked from my eyes, or heat stirred low in my belly.

Kelli Jean does a fabulous job of seamlessly weaving one story into the next. Her words are polished and precise in each book (which I greatly appreciate) to play off her characters’ strengths. I felt a part of this misfit family she brought together under various circumstances, like they were my family, my friends. I felt like I experienced every trial, every triumph, every single meditated second.  And I loved it.

“As two halves of one soul must do.” With his free hand, he turned my face toward his. His lips were against my own, his breath filling me. “We’ll come full circle, you and me.”

So, I can’t give you a detailed review about just The Song Remains the Same because in my mind, all three books blend so well that I couldn’t pinpoint events…all I know is that each conflict presented throughout the series flows; it breaks you and puts you back together again, it makes you see a connection between a man a woman so strong—wait—not just Kenna and Phil, but each couple. Each family member, each friend. There is a connection. One that will straight up flip you out if you aren’t careful. It’s on a whole different plane…and it’s magical. The whole story is magical, and one that will forever live in my heart.

Born and raised in Miami, Kelli Jean traded the tropical heat for the arctic. Now she deals with twenty-four hour daylight in the summer, zero sunlight in the winter, and believes the Northern Lights make up for the mind-boggling amount of ice and snow she has to put up with for seven months out of the year. She’s surrounded by mountains and ocean and sheep, and claims her bizarre sense of humor is what keeps her sane. The insane don’t know they’re insane. Kelli uses her imagination to create worlds she can escape to from the mundane tasks of everyday life, such as washing the damn dishes and vacuuming up Legos off the floor—and don’t get her started on the mad amount of cat hair on the end of the couch. She gave up on that a long time ago. When the household goes to sleep at night, she writes down everything that happened in her head while doing such tedious chores. But she enjoys living in her own head, so that’s pretty cool. Technology terrifies her. She can barely turn on a computer, and was completely shocked when she’d actually written a book on one. To this day, she has no explanation for this baffling mystery. It took her three years to realize she can take screen shots of messages and pictures of bearded, tattooed men with her phone. Now that she’s mastered this task, her phone is slowly dying, and she’s nervous that she’s going to have to buy a new one and it will take her another three years to learn how to use it.
