Having never read a K.L. Kreig book before, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this. But after reading the blurb, I knew it will be an enthralling read. And let me tell you, it totally was. In some way, ‘Black Swan Affair’ was like nothing I’ve ever read so far. While the premise was nothing new, at least to me, the way the story unfolded (and not only) was something else entirely. This story of love, passion, secrets and betrayal was utterly addictive, intriguing from the beginning and blew me away with all the angst, drama and revelations. If you’re a fan of love triangles, then this one it’s the perfect book for you, if not, then you should definitely consider trying this one, since I guarantee it will be worthy it.
“There’s no pretending. There’s no forgetting. There’s only compartmentalizing. There’s then and now. Past and present. Killian versus Kael.”
‘Black Swan Affair’ tells the story of Maverick and two brothers, Kael and Killian Shepard, three people whose lives are intertwined in more ways than one. Maverick had always loved both brothers, but in different ways, both brothers loving her for years. When the brother Maverick loves passionately with every fiber of her being betrays her in the worst possible way, marrying her sister, she does the unthinkable – she marries his brother, her best friend, the man who always loved her and saved her in so many ways over the years.
“I am now Mrs. Shepard. Ironic. It’s the name I’ve always wanted. This just isn’t exactly how I pictured getting it.”
Maverick feels guilty for not loving the man who she considers her best friend like he wants her to, but the heart wants what it wants, so she can’t forget the man who is so far and deep in her, even if he lied and betrayed her without any explanation.
Will Maverick accept that she lost the man she had always loved? Will she forgive the betrayal or will she try to move on?
‘Black Swan Affair’ was captivating and so well written from start to finish. The plot was complex, the story line simply fascinating and the three main characters well written and engrossing. Maverick was a heroine I felt deeply for as the story unfolded. Her portrayal was fantastically done. If at the beginning you will judge her in the worst possible way, as the story progresses you will understand her and maybe even more, like her.
The hero here was really wonderful. In my opinion he was perfect in every way for our heroine and the perfect brother for her. He was sweet, caring, thoughtful and considerate and everything I love in a hero.
“I will always come back to her. I will always be drawn to her. My swan.”
The story is full of angst, drama and some very nice twists. It held me at the edge of my seat the entire time for many reason and I’m glad I gave it a try since I found it to be 100% unputdownable. Maverick’s story was sexy, passionate, but also heartfelt and emotional.
All in all, ‘Black Swan Affair’ was a wonderful, addicting read with a fascinating premise that made me feel and held me captive the entire time. I highly recommend this one if you are looking for something different.
