BLOG TOUR REVIEW ~Black Swan Affair by KL Kreig~

Title: Black Swan Affair
Author: K.L. Kreig
Release Date: October 17, 2016

My Rating: 5 Stars!
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.

EARLY PRAISE FOR BLACK SWAN AFFAIR"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
I don't think I've ever read a book that has made my head spin or made my heart hurt as much as this one. Black Swan Affair is a truly a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat every moment of reading it. It's a torturous book, but the payoff and getting to the end hurts so good. I will admit that a lot of reader may not like the ending, but I LOVED it. I had to let it simmer for a few days after reading, but I know that Maverick made the right choice. And she was a better person for it. It was surely hard to swallow at first. But logic, fate, and love made me see reason.

Sometimes I still think back on this book and wish there was a way for everyone to win. But that's life. It's ugly and it hurts sometimes. And sometimes a love greater than the one who thought you knew and wanted demands to be seen and taken advantage of.

I'll definitely be armed with a bottle of wine, chocolate and tissues the next time I dive into a KL Kreig novel. She was new to me going into Black Swan Affair and effectively ruined and made me whole all int he span of one day (that's how long it took me to devour this book). Hear this as a warning future self and other readers, Ms. Kreig delivers a hell of a book, but she likes to revel in the angst quite some time before she decides to take mercy on you.

Happy Reading!

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 vicious 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).
