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.

This book was not at all what I expected it to be!! I have to admit before I go into my review of this book that I put off reading it, there was something in the synopsis that really drew me to sign up for this book but once I had got it I just couldn’t bring myself to start it! I wish I had of jumped into it as soon as I got it though.
K.L is a new author to me but I’m glad this is the one I popped my cherry with lol!! This book had me sucked in straight from the very beginning. I had no idea what I was expecting but it totally bypassed anything I could have hoped for.
Maverick has been in love with Killian from she was young, he ends up getting married to her sister two years ago. Kale has been Maverick’s best friend most of their lives and has been in love with Maverick for nearly as long so they also decide to get married. Sounds like a receipt for disaster right???
I honestly thought I was going to hate Maverick in this book, in the beginning I was so against her character but the more I read the easier it became to end up liking her.
I have struggled with my review for ages since I don’t want to give any spoilers away but let me tell you the amount of twists and turns this book has keeps you hanging on the edge of your seat the whole way through. I was always trying to predict what was coming next but never once guessed what it was.
There was plenty of secrets and deceit throughout this book and a whole host of drama to keep you hanging on. It has been one of my favourite reads of the past while and if you’ve seen my read list thats quite the feat!!
K.L Kreig’s writing was elaborate, entertaining and completely addicting. Her characters were all really well developed and the story flowed effortlessly. This will definitely be a hard book to top.
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).
