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.
*NO CHEATING STANDALONE*
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).
This book…wow, what did I just read? I was in a mid book rut before this book. No books were pulling me in. I was taking days to really get into books. This book, ha, it doesn’t give you a chance! K.L. Kreig sure has a way with words. This is one incredible, spellbinding creation that will pull you into the story.
We all go into love triangle or possible cheating books knowing what we think and standing firm behind out morals, our values. But Kreig, she’s so good that you will soon be just as conflicted about your feelings as Maverick is. I’m totally in awe of Kreig’s writing style.
This is one of those books that you just have no idea who to root for. I was so up and down, left and right, that I just wasn’t sure what I wanted to happen in this book. I think that might be part of the reason I couldn’t put this book down, I mean, I HAD to know what was going to happen next! I wouldn’t be able to form my own opinions until I had MORE!!
You don’t think you’ll like Maverick but you do, with every work written you grow to understand and be just as confused as she was. This is nowhere near a typical love triangle, it’s nowhere near typical anything. This is a story about loving two men; very differently… one with an all consuming love of passion and the other, his brother, as a friend and really someone Maverick has counted on over the years.
Just do yourself a favor, read the book. I just can’t even review it good enough for anyone to understand how fantastical this book is!
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
