My Soul To Keep by Kennedy Ryan
Series: Soul, book # 1
Genre: contemporary romance
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.
Kennedy is such a talent, I loved her Bennett’s series and I went into this like I do with every author that starts a new series thinking, ‘please don’t suck’. I can fist pump and say ‘it’s a winner!’
As per usual, Kennedy’s writing grabbed hold of me and sucked me in. I even had to step back for a second to adjust my presumptions. I wasn’t expecting the hit between the eyes with the first chapter.
The flow of this story is spot on. The characters are engaging and this author is so freaking talented to make a complex storyline. The one thing that is a turn off for me, the clichés. Eg: ‘Angry fire lights Kai’s eyes’, (I don’t want to be a cliché here and roll my eyes) They were dotted throughout the story and I felt they undermined the talent that Kennedy is. She doesn’t need these clichés. Her writing is strong enough without them.
I’m not going to say too much about the actual storyline as I want the reader to enjoy it. The push and the pull, the emotion, the journey that these characters take you on.
Another mighty fine effort.
I was given a copy of this book for my honest opinion.
