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.
Note from the author:
In MY SOUL TO KEEP, Rhys and Kai’s journey is a slow, sweet, hot build. I really wanted the reader to see their friendship unfold as the foundation for a love that builds then burns. And I want readers to meet them that way. Bit by bit. So I’m releasing a few chapters ahead of the November 16 release. Find CHAPTER ONE here, and read on for CHAPTER TWO!
Get a sneak peek at Kennedy Ryan's My Soul to Keep (available November 16, 2015) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.
“You’d be late for your own funeral, Kai.”
The words in my head, as clear as if Mama is rushing off the L.A. Metro bus behind me, pounding alongside me on the sidewalk, jar my thoughts. Even as my heart pinches in my chest, my mouth pulls into my mama’s smile. The one her little bits of wit and wisdom always squeezed out of me growing up. The ones that still do.
“I know, Mama.” I adjust my backpack and quicken my steps. “I’m working on it.”
