Book Review and Giveaway for Lost in Between by KL Kreig


We all have one.

A price.

That magic number that will get us to agree to do anything, be anything.

Don’t sit on your gold-plated high horse and say you don’t because you do. Everyone does. Each of us has something we covet enough that we’d sell ourselves to have it.

What’s my tipping point, you ask? Apparently a cool quarter mil will do the trick.

What does one do for 250 large, you wonder? Anything the infamous, gorgeous playboy of Seattle wants. For the next four months I’ll be Shaw Mercer’s arm candy, his beck and call girl, his faux girlfriend. I’ll be his to command, mold, push and pull in any direction he sees fit.

I’ll fight falling into bed with him. I’ll fight falling in love with him even harder. I’ll fail at both. And when my past and present collide in the most unexpected of ways, I’ll learn that while one man’s love for me has never died, the only man’s love I really want will never be mine.

"He is temptation and I am a sinner."

Yes....yes, yes, YES!!! I have to say that I am SO glad I picked up Black Swan Affair by KL Kreig, because that led to my LOVE AFFAIR WITH HER WORDS. After reading that book, I knew I needed to read Lost In Between. Well, I have now read it and I couldn't be happier. And now anxious. I am addicted. Ready for more. Hook me up and let me veg.

I. Love. Her. Words.

HERE'S WHY I loved it: the chemistry between Willow and Shaw was insanely intense, off the charts HOT. From the beginning, I felt it. I loved that they had an immediate attraction to one another, and yet they fought it for obvious reasons. I mean, hello....he was a jerk at first!! But there's nothing like a player who realizes there really is "the one" out there and then having to fight for her. I love that!! Enemies to lovers is an amazing trope and KL did it some justice in this book. She has this ability to weave a story with great depth, you can't help but be sucked in. Each individual character adds a little more insight to her story - SO good.

So, Shaw was a dirrrrrty man!!! Dirty mouth. Dirty thinker. Sexy man. Tempting bad boy; this story was all about the irresistible Shaw. It really was. He had a super sexy sidekick in Noah and I really want to explore more of him, but Shaw definitely stole the show. I loved that Willow was the one that kept him on his toes, even though he thought he was going to have one over on her. But little did he know that she was the one to bring him to his knees. I honestly think the pull between them shocked them both. The very evident magnetism between these two characters added an angsty element and I was giddy at every turn. Shaw may own a small piece of my heart now. And, holy shite, this book was HOT!!! Whew!!

With Willow's background and her 'reasons' for doing everything she does, it leads us to a very touchy person, one that is quick to shut down and hide. It added a level of complexity to her that Shaw wanted to break down, but I don't think he realized the magnitude of everything going on. My head felt like it was spinning. Between their back story and the burgeoning love between these two, it was agonizing seeing them fight the inevitable at every turn. I wanted to shake them both and tell them there is NO other way. They truly are meant for each other.

When Shaw's world mixes with Willow's inadvertently, it is a twisted web, one that I cannot wait to see play out!!! What a situation to be in with her background, his family and their little secret. Another element was added when her past showed up, and I gasped!! I slack-jaw gasped and wanted more! Make sure to add the second book to your TBR: FOUND UNDERNEATH. Found Underneath will release on May 30th.

And now we wait....

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).
