I listen to music that has inspired me as I wrote that book. Usually there are lyrics that connected that song to the story, and it often puts me back in the space to write it. I also read poetry. Something about the cadence and lyricism of poetry shakes something in me and inspires me. Especially Pablo Neruda, Nikki Giovanni, Emily Dickinson.(less)

“Cam touched your hair and your face and I wanted to strangle him. You were his, but you felt like mine. Even then, you felt like mine.”
Kennedy Ryan, Loving You Always

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

“Healthy people can own their mistakes and, over time, move on.”
Kennedy Ryan, Loving You Always

“It sounds silly, I know. But for me, the power of music rests in its ability to reach inside and touch the places where the deepest cuts lie.
Like a benevolent god, a good song will never let you down.
And sometimes, when you're trying to find your way, one of those gods actually shows up and gives you directions.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star

“Everyone feels that void. Everyone who has the balls to look inside themselves, anyway. It's what life's all about.. A search.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo, God-Shaped Hole

“Is it simple that I can’t stop thinking about you? About the kiss in that hospital room?” He took one step, eating up the small space separating them until he knew she could hear his whisper. “About how you taste? How you feel? Is that simple, Kerris?”
Kennedy Ryan, When You Are Mine

“It was only an instant. The look that passed between them was like a flare in the pitch of night. Bright. Hot. Sudden and then gone. Her skin heated as if Walsh had kissed her. As if he had caressed her. As if he had possessed her. And maybe he had with one look. Kerris glanced around, searching each face, certain someone had witnessed the moment. So intimate out in the open. All the things she couldn’t say and shouldn’t feel rose up in her chest, suffocating her from the inside.”
Kennedy Ryan, When You Are Mine

“The pain of a lost brother, of the enmity that tangled like barbed wire between him and the best friend he’d ever had, sliced over the still-throbbing wound of his futile, thwarted love for Kerris. His heart was being ripped from his chest.”
Kennedy Ryan, When You Are Mine

Kennedy Ryan ***Is BE MINE FOREVER truly a standalone?****

You know, I wrote BMF so that you CAN jump in, even though it is the third book in the series, but I don't think you SHOULD. I'm not saying that just to get you to buy the first 2 books.

Though WHEN YOU ARE MINE is STILL on half off sale for some reason! LOL! (amzn.com/B00GWOFF5I)

I say this. The richest reading experience will definitely be if you have read the two previous books because Cam's story, of all of them, is the most redemptive. And if you don't see the scope of what he has done and experienced in the first 2 books, and have that history as a backdrop, you lose a layer of that redemption. Cam gets a lot of ire because of his actions in the first 2 books, and my favorite thing is to see the ‪#‎CamConverts‬. Folks who really disliked him before, learning to love him. If you never hated him, you miss out on that! LOL! I do love seeing people who are meeting for the first time in book 3 fall for him! I was just chatting with a few people who have read all 3 books, and they were just like - nooo!!! Tell people to read the other 2 books first. They HAVE to.

So I'm telling you...that I would if I were you. LOL!
