Blog Tour (REVIEW): Soul Love by Aja

Soul Love
Soulmates Book 3
by Aja
Genre: Contemporary African-American Romance
Zoe comes from a line of clairvoyant, empathic women. Each one, including Zoe, is deeply connected to the world around them. Zoe’s gifts are much more intense and hard to go unnoticed by those who get close to her so she often hides what she knows to avoid being seen as unstable. She’s always known who the love of her life was going to be, she just hadn’t met him yet. He could live halfway across the world for all she knew. But if she saw him… or if she met him … she would know she was meeting her soul mate. The man for her. Her man to love … Rashaad.
Rashaad only wants two things: to play his music and explore the world, and women, while he does it. So far, he’s been managing that very well, until he is pulled to the less than bustling, more like unassuming, city of Pittsburgh. He figures he can just get in and get out and move on, but getting in, is more about love, and getting out, would be about leaving it. He doesn’t know how to make that decision when it involves Zoe, his someone new. His once in a lifetime.
Soul Love is book three of the Soulmates series. ♥
I received Soul Love for an honest review. What follows is my opinion and mine alone. There was no compensation made for this review.
Given how crazy the world has been the past year and more, and the life struggles I am undergoing, I wanted something to boost my spirit. I needed a bit of quick fluff. I also wanted to support a POC author writing POC main characters. When Soul Love popped in my inbox, I grabbed it. How could I not? From the blurb, I knew I was going to have my fluff, the romance, the POC representation, and a bit of spiritual/paranormal too.
Zoe is our main female lead. She has some emotional struggles with her biological father and she is psychic. Unfortunately, I feel that there could be more of a psychic angle to everything. We get a bit in the beginning, but I don’t know how it works or how it might impact Zoe’s relationship with her father. It’s clear why their relationship is strained, but I wonder if her psychic abilities could have made it more interesting.
Rashaad, our male lead, also has a strained relationship with his father. Though it is strikingly different from Zoe’s. He is more of a father who is trying to push his son to settle and not wander. However, Rashaad has music in his soul and he needs to share it.
Ultimately, this book is about not keeping a person with you, to allow them to go and see the world. You hear that message from Zoe’s mother and again from Rashaad’s father. I’d tell you what happens, but I’d give away the ending. Which honestly, I was surprised about. I wasn’t expecting the ending to be like that. It was refreshing and what I needed.
Soul Love is easily a single sitting read that will bring a smile to your face. Would I have liked a bit more drama and meat? Maybe, but again, I feel I read this book at the right time for what I personally needed. I don’t need a lot of drama in my life right now and Soul Love kept that sentiment.
If you are looking for a generational series with a lot of love, family, and a smidge of spirituality, Aja is your author.

He kinda looked like Ross, he even smiled like him. My mind didn’t want him. It shouldn’t have. Not after Ross.
But he smelled good and he talked to me in a way that felt good, deep down in my soul.
He wasn’t Ross.
Zena Lewis believed in fairy tales as a little girl. She carried those fantasies of a knight in shining armor loving her until eternity, until her ugly separation and divorce from her ex. These days, a man would have to be lucky to get her to smile back at him, let alone give up her number.
Until Rafael Dupré.
Rafael was different.
