Book Summary:

Kaylee has one addiction: her very hot, very popular boyfriend, Nash. A banshee like Kaylee, Nash understands her like no one else. Nothing can come between them.
Until something does.

Demon breath. No, not the toothpaste-challenged kind. The Netherworld kind. The kind that really can kill you. Somehow the super-addictive substance has made its way to the human world. But how? Kaylee and Nash have to cut off the source and protect their friends—one of whom is already hooked.

And so is someone else…

Wow did this book bring out the emotions in me. Seriously I was fuming mad when I got to the end of this book. This is what I wrote on goodreads as I finished the book:

Dear Nash,

You are lower than pond scum! Seriously – you suck! Some things should be unforgivable! I’m sure Kaylee will ultimately forgive you but I’m not sure how you can possibly redeem yourself in my eyes.

Make sure you have book #4 on hand so you can begin it as soon as you finish this one.  It was midnight when I finished but there was no way I was going to be able to sleep because I was so worked up by what was revealed at the end of this book.  I had to get 1/3 of the way into the next book before I finally fell asleep.  I think that is one of the things I like most about Rachel’s writing – the emotions her books ellicit in me, I’m connected to the characters, I care about the characters, they seem so real to me.

My Soul to Keep took on some dark & heavy subject matter. Addiction and everything that comes with it is not a warm and fuzzy topic. However My Soul to Keep was original, fast paced and very well written. I loved this addition to the Soul Screamer Series.

Rating: 5 Stars – I Loved It simply for the amount of emotion I felt while reading it.

Content: everything was a step up from the last book – more language, more wandering hands, more innuendo, etc.
