Down to My Soul
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 th ...more
“I don’t need a ceremony or a ring or a license.” He turns back around, eyes lit with emotion. “You know there’s already a vow between us that goes beyond all of that, and for you to be with anyone else would be adultery of the soul.”
The love between Rhyson and Kai is so stunningly beautiful, it brought me to tears. I love this couple so much. They love hard, they forgive, they are a perfectly imperfect pair.
Rhys and Kai have had a bumpy road. At the start of this book, th ...more
"I was raised with the capacity to believe in something that I can’t see and always have questions about, but have no doubt is absolutely real.”
She tips up on her toes and hovers over my lips.
I’m so invested in this characters. They’re so brave, they love so hard, they make stupid decisions, they’re fun, and they’re so real. I loved watching them grow in this book and start to work on their problems. I loved watching them open up more and fight for each other. I l ...more
DOWN TO MY SOUL is the STUNNING second novel of the Soul Series, one of my VERY TOP reads of 2015! Soul #2 is everything I needed it to be and more, pure perfection! I laughed, I cried, I had a couple of OMG moments, a moment where I had butterflies in my tummy... and I felt the exquisite emotion of the beautiful writing delivered by Kennedy Ryan. It’s a story about forgiveness, understanding, secrets, embracing ones destiny, and most importantly, it's about LOVE. The ...more
He is mine and I am his. Our darkest secrets, shared. Our deepest places, reached. We are completely known. Completely loved down to our very souls.
The author has a way with putting a story together. She is able to draw her readers in and not let go until the end and even then leaves us begging for more. The author once again delivered a heartwarming, fun, sexy read that I didn’t want to put down and her great talent most definitely shines through in Down to My ...more

5+++ "I didn't know there was love like this." Stars
To have the absolute privilege and great fortune of getting beautifully lost in worlds created by Kennedy Ryan is something I greatly cherish. Down to My Soul comes as the much anticipated sequel to the highly rated first book My Soul to Keep and must be read in succession after book one. Book one, having been one of my favorites in 2015, really raised the ba ...more
This is the beautiful conclusion to My Soul to Keep. Kai and Rhyson ended badly in book one. This story is a testament to heart and soul, to learning forgiveness and to growing your spirit with a love that knows no bounds. Rhy is a famous rock star and Kai is an up and coming star whose career is flourishing. But what is missing is Rhy. Kai must navigate her feelings and decide if she can forgive Rhy. The baggage of their pasts is the key to the door opening their fut ...more
Down To My Soul picks up right where My Soul To Keep ended and it does with one hell of a bang. I was drawn back in instantly.
I didn't think it was pos ...more

A whole experience! So back to that a- ha moment...I was thinking to" imagine how is writing stories like this"...so I was thinking about you and draining proc ...more
Just read it..
That is all Xoxo
“Sometimes our best intentions come with our worst decisions.”
I adored the first book in this series and was a little reticent to read this one at first as I had extremely high expectations. My Soul to Keep was my first Kennedy Ryan read and she totally captivated me with her lyrical writing, intense character connection and Kai and Rhyson’s all-consuming story. Well, I needn’t have worried because Kennedy Ryan delivered once again, ...more
This is a book I've been eagerly anticipating and you know how that goes - when it pops on your Kindle, you have a niggle of worry that it won't meet your expectations. Well, my friends, it did. It surpassed them, as a matter of fact.
The characters are so developed, the plot so realistic, the words painted so beautifully that you feel like you are a part of thi ...more
"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 b...more
#2 Down To My Soul: 4.5 stars.
#3 Refrain: tbd
Not an ocean, not forever
Nothing wide or deep
Will ever end this love between us
My Soul is yours to keep
Note to self: If the series is already completed then read all the books successively so you have all the details fresh in mind!
I live Kai Anne Pearson and Rhyson Grey so so much. It's a beautiful story and no one writes like Kennedy Ryan. No one! Rhyson is the definition of being whipped for his girl ...more
“Growing up, Mama always reminded me that love keeps no record of wrongs. I didn’t know until now that true love, pure love, the right love, doesn’t keep that record because it can’t. I can’t.”
“Who needs words when we have this? This living, panting thing that ignites every second we’re together. Lust and love rub against each other vigorously like two sticks making sparks fly, the first sign of fire.”
“I claim him with the pads of my fingers, with the palms of my hands. ...more
I can't even find the right words to fully express the fabulous journey I'm on with Rhyson and Kai.
How to describe how deep it touched me? How to describe the depth that is #Kaison?
“Your love goes past the heart,”
To say it was beautiful doesn't begin to describe it.
This book gave me ALL the feels even those I didn't know existed.
I am really truly beyond happy ❤

“No matter what happens, my heart and my soul, I give them to you. They’re yours to keep.”There is nothing better than reading a story where the connection between the characters literally penetrates your soul. The words that drive this story are amazingly poetic, emotionally raw, and beautifully awakening. The sparks that ignite the characters are deep and palpable. Well done Kennedy Ryan.
I fell in love with Kai & Rhyson in My Soul to Keep. I was their behind the scenes cheerleader, a groupie at their concerts, a voyeur in their bedroom (and on the pool table). I got so caught up in their relationship and the media drama that I was surprised when the bottom dropped out and she walked away. So let me tell you, I could not wait to get my hands on Down to My Soul, I needed to be put out of my misery. I needed my faith in soul deep lov ...more
After the break-up from Rhys, Kai throws herself into training and perfecting her performance for her upcoming tour. But never goes a day without thinking about Rhys and re-reading his text, asking for her forgiveness.
If there is one trait Rhys possessed that I adore, it’s his patience. He waited two months, for Kai to forgive him for what he did behind her back, finally paid off because Kai answered his text and forgives him. I can just imagine the happiness of Rhys when he got a reply from th ...more
Rhys had it all. He had Kai and all he had to do was love her and take care of her and be honest with her. But everyone has a past and Rhys is no different. He has secrets and told lies and it tore Kai and him apart. After Kai walked away Rhys life changed for the w ...more
