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.
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.
Jen and Roxie’s Review
Warning: This review will have shouting and lots of OMGs because just WOW!!!
It’s no shock that we love ANGST. The more the better. That feeling of your heart racing, palms sweating and feeling like you might puke. YES!! It’s that magical BOOKGASM that you search for and when you find it–it’s like BAM!! You want to savor it and you struggle to move on to the other books on your TBR!
We read a book by an author we had never read before. The synopsis called our names and we were lucky enough to get a review copy.
Black Swan Affair is the perfect blend of angst and heartbreak.
“I’m anything but innocent. My soul is lost. My heart cold. I’m a devil in angel’s skin trapping a man for life who could have any woman he wants but for some reason wants me.”
We meet Maverick, and learn her tale of heartache the end of her fairytale. Her loss, her pain, it will make your heart ache.
She had loved Killian Shepard most of her life and he basically stuck a metaphorical knife straight through her heart by marrying HER SISTER!!! Gasp!!
“You gave me up. You walked away from everything we had. No answers. No explanations. No second thoughts. No nothing.”
How does this badass chick get revenge?! She married HIS BROTHER!!! OHMYGAWD.
Kael loves so deep, with his whole heart and would do anything for Maverick.
“He’s the one who has always walked beside me. Selflessly. Silently. Steadfastly. Without exception. Without expectations.”
We learn all about the who, where, how and why and JESUS, it was by far one of the best storylines we’ve devoured this year.
Needless to say we were hooked and you need to one click this sucker ASAP!!! YES we we ate it up!! GOD we love when this happens!
“I like to think we all end up in the place we’re supposed to be eventually… The sum total of our choices carries us to our destiny.”
So if you’re in the mood for a book that will have you glued to your kindle and breathing into a paper bag, one click NOW!! K.L., we will be stalking you on a regular basis reading whatever you write!!
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).
