It seems the things worth keeping are often the hardest to hold...


I had two things in life that mattered. My mother and my music.
Mama was taken from me too soon, and now music is all I have left. It’s the thing that’s pushed me right out of backwoods Georgia into Los Angeles, where the line between fantasy and reality shimmers and blurs. I’m finally making my way, making my mark. I can’t afford to fall for one of music's brightest stars. Not now. Music is all I have left, and I’m holding on tight with both hands. I won’t let go, not even for Rhyson Gray.


I had one thing in my life that mattered – music. The only constant, it’s taken me to heights most people only dream about; a gift dropped in my lap at birth. I thought it was enough. I thought it was everything until I met Kai. Now she’s all I think about, like a song I can't get out of my head. If I have to chase her, if I have to give up everything - I will. And once she's mine, I won't let go.

Back in November, I picked up my first Kennedy Ryan book. It was My Soul To Keep and I pretty much adored it. I fell in love with Rhyson, especially. I just finished the follow up, Down to My Soul and my love for this boy just grew.

Here is my quickie review of My Soul To Keep, scroll further down for who I see as the characters. The ebook is on sale now for only $0.99.  Also, below you’ll find a giveaway for an ARC of book two, Down to My Soul!

My Soul to Keep was my first venture into a Kennedy Ryan book, but I’ll definitely be digging into her other titles. Shit, if all her guys are even remotely like Rhyson…she’ll become a favorite for sure.  He’s not without flaws. BIG flaws.  But his adorable quirkiness made me put up with his flaws. Well, mostly. Anyway, Ryan wrote characters I could care about and a story I could become invested in and wrapped it all up with some great lines. Like these:

“I’m afraid if I have him completely, he’ll take all of me”

“Watching you guys trying to be friends is like watching porn with no penetration. Really hot, but no climax.”

“I want to make her laugh my ring tone.”

“The man I didn’t want to need feels like the breath in my lungs.”

I mean, come on.  Great lines! If you’re a fan of the friends to lovers thing and you don’t mind a bit of a cliffhanger, check this book out. Strong 4 Stars

Rhyson  – I picked Deigo Barrueco. He’s freckly, which Rhyson isn’t . But I can’t seem to care. It’s the look on his face all the time that sold me. He’s broody, which I think fits Rhyson well. His messy hair helped a lot too. 


Kai – I chose Pom Klementieff.  She, like Kai, was born to an Asian mother and there is just something about her eyes that draws you in. I think she’s nearly perfect.

About Kennedy Ryan

Kennedy Ryan grew up in North Carolina, but loves living in Atlanta with her husband (tall – check, dark – check – handsome – check), and her handful of a son. Though she knew, like writers often do, that she was supposed to tell stories, the road to fulfillment has been paved with “some of everything” jobs that kept her family eating and living indoors. With her degree in Journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Go Tar Heels!), she has focused on writing for non-profit organizations and even doing some non-fiction ghost writing. Only in the last few years did she start telling stories again.

In addition to being a devoted wife and mom, she’s also passionate about serving families living with Autism. Her son was diagnosed with Autism at the age of two, and she has made it her mission to help as many families as possible find the resources and services they need.

I am just as passionate about the REAL LIFE stories I tell as I am about the worlds I build in fiction. Some of these use my given TINA DULA and some are written under my pseudonym KENNEDY RYAN.
