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… - Good Reads

My Soul to Keep picks up a month after My Soul to Save left off and Kaylee has just been let off her grounding sentence. Kaylee and Nash decide to spend their first night out together in a month by going to a party where everything begins to go wrong. One of Nash's jock friends crashes his car into Kaylee's car, but it wasn't a drunk driving accident - it was a demon breath induced accident. Demon breath is a deadly substance to humans and can cause permanent mental damage or death and Kaylee is determined to get to the bottom of who's dealing it and save the day. 

I can definitely say I felt My Soul to Keep was better than it's predecessor My Soul To Save. I liked the story a little better, but it took some really surprising turns and now I'm not sure what to think! 

Kaylee is just as willing to stand up for what she believes for the most part throughout the book and she struggles with Nash, because he's starting to want to go farther than she feels comfortable with. I also like the fact that she's not completely irrational about Nash. She's got a good head on her shoulders for the most part. And she's not exactly foaming at the mouth in love with him, she hopes they'll stay together, but she's not exactly counting her chickens before they're hatched.... Good thing too....

Because Nash's attitude can be summed up in three simple Michael Bolton Songs, first he was all, "Said I Loved You, But I Lied" and then he was all, "Can I Touch You.... There" and then at end, "How Am I Supposed To Live Without You". That boy was just all over the place. 

I found out I actually had a soft spot for Tod, because it seemed like he was absent half the book and I kept wanting him to pop up and when he did I was happy. I'm almost positive the next book is going to have Tod and Kaylee like... THIS. Let's just hope Tod doesn't grow out his hair and get a bad perm... 

Overall, I still like the series. I'm really interested to read the next book. Which better include Kaylee and Tod hooking up. I love to torture myself with picking the third person in a triangle that will never win


  1. Hmmmm this Nash character sounds like a bit of a tool. It's a good thing Kaylee seems wise to him otherwise it would have put me off the series. Great review Liza.

  2. LOL! Love the Nash-as-Michael Bolton; that is EXACTLY it. I wanted to smack him silly.

    I struggled with this book, largely because I had initially loved Nash, and this story made me feel like I'd had been tricked. Didn't like that, at all.

  3. @Lan Yes, I think he's a bigger tool in the fourth book though! D:

    @BJ Ahahaha! Glad you enjoyed my Michael Bolton reference! Yes, I definitely was disappointed in Nash in this book. In #4 I was really disappointed with him as well, maybe even more so, but at least I learned from this book that he's a dipshit and you obviously can't expect him to be reliable and counted on. In #4 he was acting a fool! I love Tod though, so I'm hoping this pushes Kaylee towards him... Even though I don't even know how their relationship would work - if it's allowed or anything...
