    Over the Hills and Far Away spans six years and while that may seem long or daunting, it was the opposite. Kenna first lays eyes on Phil on her eighteenth birthday at a music festival. She is obviously attracted to him, but is mostly drawn to his incredible musical abilities. She loves the way his music makes her feel. As time goes on Phil and Kenna’s path continually cross, but they never connect. I am not really sure that’s the best way to ...

    Oh WOW! I'm in a state of shock over this emotionally fueled read. Going into this book I had no idea that I would be completely blown away... that this wouldn't just be another good book, but something MORE . Over the Hills and Far Away is an original story that will grab you from the beginning and make it almost impossible for you to do anything other than read its pages. I devoured this story. I fell in love with all of the characters. I hat...

    IT'S LIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00T22H3IE/r...Where to start... have you ever been really excited about an ARC and then thought about it and thought- shite maybe I should've passed. Anyone who knows me knows that I seldom read M/F. There's something about het books that don't really do it for me anymore so I kind of got myself in a bit of funk mode when I started this book. But you know what- in the end I was all so glad I read i...

    Rocker romances are hardly something new but every so often one pops up that grabs you by the lady bits and doesn't let go. This story pulses with electrifying and emotional vibrations.Immaculately written with style and visceral attention to detail, it’s a head-bangingly guilty pleasure and a romance to treasure, both for its endearing characters and memorable journey to love. It is powerful and unabashedly sensual, and finds the perfect balan...

    4 - 4.5 ★'s WOW...what a story! Phil and Kenna have such an intense connection that I couldn't read this book fast enough and finished in one day. I just couldn't put it down. Phil is a lead singer in a rock metal band called NOLA's Junk and Kenna is their biggest fan. They finally see each other, talk for a bit and even kiss before Phil gets pulled away telling Kenna to not go anywhere. Unfortunately, the bouncer didn't get that message and ki...

    Ok, so I start with stating that this not a standalone! So major cliffy is in the house should you choose to proceed! With that out of the way I can get to the heart of it all. This is one of those reads that will be out of the park phenomenal for some and yet others may not even finish. Why you ask? Well this is quite an enigma. It is insta-lust, and “soul-connecting” love at first touch yet it is also over 5 years in the making to that firs...

    First time: 1/31/15Re-read: 1/27/17___________________________________+++ 6 "FUCK ME RUNNING" STARS!!! +++ How I feel about this book is indescribable. It’s been a while since a book has pulled me in so deep that it drowns me completely. But the crazy part is that I let it. I let it because I don’t want to ever let go. This story was a true gem. So original and beautifully written that I was left breathless at times. There were moments I had ...

    3.5 starsi really liked this one. it's a bit unlike any other rockstar book i have read. kenna and phil were two quite unique characters and their love story is a roller coaster of emotional ups and downs.straight up though, this won't be for everyone. it's a book if you give a chance to immerse yourself into, you'll probably be happy you did but it's also a book some just won't like and that's okay too.i saw kenna as a very different type of her...

    4.5 Hippie Lovin' Stars! WOW, what a ride! Where do I even start?Kelli Jean takes you on an emotional roller coaster ride full of music, lust, loss, dreams, and doobies (yes, that's right...doobies!) I absolutely loved this story!!!The constant theme throughout this whole story is music, and the author's love of music flows heavily through her characters. Music is more than just sound, it penetrates our soul. It excites us, calms us, gives us ins...

    Holly freakin hell!! what an amazing freaking book this was. I love it, hated it, love it, hated it but in the end loved it so much. The intensity of the love that Phil feels and has for Kenna is unbelievable and you can feel it when reading this book. Six fucking years these 2 people go through waiting for each other or holding off until they finally have the chance of a beautiful and deeply emotional love and I love every moment they shared. Ke...

    This book was unique and beautifully done...I'm still having a difficult time believing this is Kelli's debut novel...it's extremely well written and thought out ...it flows well..the characters are well rounded and NOT the least bit flat...She goes DEEP....She took something that..written by another could've went horribly wrong and made it SO SO SO right! It sucked me right into the story and took me on a wonderful journey of growth and discover...

    This has been a really good read. I loved it!So you might ask... why not 5 stars? Because given the length of the novel and story line I did not see the huge cliffhanger coming my way. I was taken completely by surprise. Personally I don't think a second installment for this novel's h and H were necessary. I was ready for the HEA at about 70%, kept reading patiently and then Bam!!... it ends with a cliffhanger. Not cool. At all.

    To be fair, I don't want readers to make snap judgments about this book. I am not quite sure how I feel about it yet. And that's actually a good thing. This book is making me think, it is making me think about the characters and the circumstances in which this book left off and a lot of other stuff I normally don't when I finish a book. The sequel is should be out in June 2015 and damn if I am already impatiently awaiting it arrival. (it is a con...

    Ahhhh.. I wish I had realized this wasn't a complete story.. It doesn't end on a cliffhanger per se.. But it's DEFINITELY drama and leaves you hanging a bit.. I actually really enjoyed this book.. The whole theme kind of threw me for a bit in the beginning.. But I found myself really enjoying the read, and wanting to keep going.. I really loved all of the characters and the writing.. The first half of this book is told over a 6 year time period, ...

    Wow, it's kinda hard for me to write a review for this book. I loved the story, seriously loved it, but at times, I felt like it could've been edited down some. I don't know where exactly, I'm not an editor, but it was sooooo long, and at times certain parts made me think had they been cut down more I would've liked the book more. I see though that it's getting amazing reviews, and I'm super happy about that. It seems I'm totally in the minority ...
