Book Review: Black Swan Affair by KL Kreig


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.


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.

"I'm anything but innocent. My soul is lost. My heart is cold."

HOLY COW. YES!! I love this....I have read two very angsty, emotionally challenging books in a row and I am LOVING this high!!! Loving it.

This was my first book by KL Kreig, and I will say it won't be my last. I was immediately sucked in by the synopsis, because, let's be real: a triangle. But, as I began to read, I realized and felt the strength and conviction in her words. Her flow was easy to follow and the storyline made me crave more. I couldn't get enough of this powerful love story that defied all odds. I have picked up another book of hers, and I plan on moving that up the TBR list. Reading angst the way she writes it is my favorite thing...when I breathe funny because I am getting antsy and the story is pulling me in; winner.

Fate. This book was literally a step by step acceptance and understanding of fate and I felt this book deep within. This story will wrap you up. It will seriously hold your heart and your breath hostage while you go through everything with Maverick. I'm going to say.....there were spots that had me squirming. I can tell you that KL knows how to write a hot man that knows how to woo his woman. These brothers are swoony beyond swoony. Seriously, HOT AF.!!!  <--- Sorry, had to.

"I'm going to worship your body, love your heart, own your soul, and make sure you remember this night for the rest of your life."

This book is the kind of book that you freak out over, tell others about and make them read it....but what can you say other than READ THIS? I was consumed....the book moved me. It made me set aside my feelings and feel right along with Maverick and Kael and Killian. I had to see it from her POV and follow along as she tried to find her way, and boy did I feel for her. What a decision and a choice. But it was the right one. There was no other way. My gosh, the amount of feels you get while reading this book cannot be measured. Desire and need were very prevalent in this book, but the growth in this book was undeniable. I could probably talk about this book all day long. The actions and reactions, the emotions and the pain. It was written SO well.

This book had a present to past writing style, which I am generally not a fan of but Kreig pulled it off brilliantly. I found myself trying to put the pieces together as I read, but I realized I needed to let the story unfold as I went. Very easy to read after I got into it even though I found myself trying to figure things out. I ~loved~ that I was kept guessing until.the.very.end. Perfect!! Brand new fan!!!!

"I like to think we end up in the place we're supposed to be eventually. The sum total of our choices carries us to our destiny."


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).
