She doesn't wear my ring. We never stood before a preacher. The only vows exchanged were between our bodies; between our souls. But she was mine and I was hers until I ruined it. I have to believe that every day, every step, every breath brings me closer to making things right. To making her mine again.
I've seen promises broken. I know love makes no guarantees. But things were different for Rhys and me, until he lied, and I walked away. Only there's a chain between our hearts that I can't break. Even if I forgive him, a shadow from my past hangs over us; over this love that reaches all the way down to my soul.
“No matter what happens, my heart and my soul, I give them to you. They’re yours to keep.”
Down To My Soul is one of those stories that is just difficult to review. Simply because I don’t think there are enough words to properly convey my feelings for this book. Simply put, I freaking “LIVE“ Rhys and Kai.
No book should give you butterflies or keep a smile on your face while you’re reading it. No book should pull you in so effortlessly that you can’t wait to devour it but you still want to savor every minute of it because you just do not want it to end. Certainly, no book should be so palpable with emotions, so romantic, sexy, and yet frustratingly real that you can’t help but fall in love with the characters and the writing.
“Our love— an ultrasonic boom, out of frequency for everyone but the two of us.”
Kennedy Ryan nailed this story. With how things ended in My Soul To Keep, I knew there were quite a few issues that Rhys and Kai had to work on within themselves and with each other. Rhyson was the same strong, stubborn, and yet loving person he always was but his character grew in so many ways during this story. I admired Kai’s resilience, her independence, and even though her stubbornness frustrated me at times, she allowed herself to show more vulnerablity with Rhys. I honestly loved how their characters developed. They changed, not necessarily for each other, but to be able to love each other completely, flaws and all.
Their romance was a give and take, tense moments, and arguments, but it was pure love and intensity. I adored their friendship and banter too. I was completely invested in the journey of it all. Kennedy wrote this story with such passion and grace. This was the kind of love story that easily had me falling back in love with these characters. I loved that the angst and drama did not hinder the story but only propelled forward. Take note: this is how you write new adult.
I think this series ended perfectly but I admit I am a greedy reader. I want to be able to see what’s in their future, I just want more of them. I definitely recommend this series. This was a such an amazing book and I’m excited to read more from Kennedy Ryan.

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.
