❤❤ BLACK SWAN AFFAIR by KL Kreig Blog Tour + 5 star review ❤❤

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







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.

I don't really know what to say right now. I can honestly tell you this didn't end how I expected it to. I am floored with this twist that KL put on a love triangle ...ish.. square maybe? no..triangle. Triangle of the heart. 

But it's not okay... we, I mean she, has to choose!

I'm not usually a fan of time-hops-back-in-time storylines . I can't usually connect with them, I have trouble keeping up. I didn't struggle with this one. On the contrary, I was captivated by it. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. Any time some interrupted me, they didn't just get the evil eye, they got the "I'll melt you with the evil pouring from my eyes right now" look. 

When reading this book I wasn't sure how our Swan was going to make her decision. I mean, I couldn't make a decision. It was back and forth. I wanted to hate Killian, but I really liked him. Then with everything Kael (and Killian) did, I wanted to hate him. But with how he treated Maverick, there's no way you can hate someone who loves that hard. Who treats her that good. Who screws her into next tuesday, let's be honest about that. The man could lay down some D and it was hot as freaking hell! 

I found myself stuck between these two men, I almost didn't want to keep reading. I knew someone's heart would break and I didn't want to know who's it would be. 
I am absolutely in love with this book and how KL wrote it. The time hops, flashback, the flow, the love, and yes...the sexiness. This book was one of the best I've read in 2016. I am sitting here amazed at how well this was written, how it turned out, and just how captivated KL had me by this story.

"OMG what did I just read? This book... WOW!! It's been years since I read a book straight through. Yes, seven hours I was glued to the pages of this book. A yo-yo of emotions that left me breathless with every scene. Black Swan Affair is a must read!!" - NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author Nashoda Rose 
 "Black Swan Affair is intense, mesmerizing, a gripping page-turner that had me guessing until the very end! A top 2016 read!" - Anne Mercier, Bestselling Author
"Simply Amazing. KL had me from page one and I had to pry my fingers off my Kindle when it was over." - Winter Travers, Amazon Bestselling Author of The Devil's Knights Series and The Skid Row Kings Series blackswanaffair-teaser1smaller
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).
