Black Swan Affair by KL Kreig is LIVE!
"This book owned me as I turned page after page, wanting to both savor every beautifully written word and race to the end. Black Swan Affair is easily one of my top reads of the year.” – USA Today Bestselling Author, Meghan March
Killian, Kael and Maverick. They all grew up together, their lives crossing often due to the business interests of their parents.
I’ve loved him as long as I can remember.
The gangly boy with big brown eyes and unruly hair who grew up into an intoxicating man. He wears scruff like he invented it and ambles with a swagger that makes panties drop. Killian Shepard. Shep. We grew up together. We played Ghost in the Graveyard. Had our own rock band. It didn’t matter that he was five years older than me. It didn’t matter that he looked at me as a kid sister even as I grew into a woman. It didn’t even matter when he left me behind to go to college and start his adult life. He’d be back. He was always meant to be mine. He came back, all right. But instead of smelling of promises, he stunk of betrayal. And he destroyed me—us—the day he married my sister instead of me. So I did the only thing a girl like me in my position could do. I got my revenge. I married his brother, Kael. Now we’re one big happy fucking family.
One, the unrequited crush that could be more, one lovers kept apart by circumstances beyond their control.
This book, well, it wrecked me. In the best possible way. I don't know how to review this one without spoilers and without letting my own feelings about the ending color what I am saying. And I don't want to accidentally spoil it for anyone. So, I am going to tell you how this book made me feel.
This pulled me in so many directions. It twisted around who I felt for, who I was cheering for, who I believed until I was not even positive any longer. I secong and third guessed myself, the actions of the characters, their motivations...until I was no longer sure who was right for Maverick, or who I wanted to end up together.
And, once I finally figured it out, the revelation hit me. And it didn;t let go. And everything I thought I knew turned on itself again. And the actions of characters made sense. And then they made me angry. And then sad. And then it broke my heart.
By the end of the book, I was a wreck. I am still a wreck. Maverick finds her happiness. She picks. And, I am still torn over her choice, although I think she made the right one. my heart hurts for the brother she didn't pick. It hurts for her that she had to choose. It hurts for both brothers and what they lost.
The writing was so engaging, I felt I knew each of the characters, that I understood them. The pacing was perfect, the balance of the story also perfect and I was able to believe Maverick's choice at the end...which is impressive, as my heart is breaking for the one she didn't choose.
Have I mentioned I am a complete wreck? But in the best possible way.
I recommend this book. It's quite a ride, you won't want to put it down, you will think about it when it's over.

About the Author:I’m just a regular ol’ Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It’s a vicous cycle. I love carbs, but there’s love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell…who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I’m a huge creature of habit, but I’ll tell you I’m flexible. I read every single day and if I don’t get a chance…watch the hell out, I’m a raving bitch. My iPad and me: BFFs. I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).
