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 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 f*cking family.

This is a standalone book and doesn’t relate to any other books by K.L Kreig.

The day you marry should be the happiest day of your life. But how can you be happy when your heart belongs to somebody else? To a man that is ingrained in your very soul? This is the dilemma that faces Maverick DeSoto. Does she walk away from Kael Shepard, her best friend and protector? Or does she marry him knowing she is still in love with his brother Killian? The man she has loved for as long as she can remember, who also happens to be married to her sister and who shattered her heart into a million pieces?

So that is as far as I can go with a story overview as you really need to go in as blindly as I did. If you do you will finish the book with your heart having been ripped out, stomped on a few times and then put back together. So folks, avoid those pesky spoiler reviews, they really will ruin what is a brilliant journey.

So before any haters start, this isn’t a love triangle per se. Yes there are 3 characters involved in this love story, but no cheating goes on in the flesh. This is more about how you mourn a love, whilst trying to build a love with someone else. How you mend a broken heart to fall in love with someone else. Poor Maverick really has had her heart broken by Killian. Could she really build a love with his brother Kael? Someone that has always stood by her side and loved her more than she will ever know?

This journey is an emotional one. You will want to slap a few heads and you will will her to choose the right brother. But the twists and turns will come unexpectedly and it isn’t until the end when you find out what choice she makes. The author notes at the end that readers will be very much placed in 2 camps and I wholeheartedly agree with her. My camp won (btw), but the person who ultimately won in this book was Maverick.

This is my first K.L Kreig book, and admittedly it has sat on my kindle for a good few weeks. But aren’t they always the best books? They sit there, and you keep eyeing it up, but then a favourite author drops a book and your eyes are swayed. DO NOT MAKE THAT MISTAKE. This book is EPIC and deserves to be read ASAP.

It should be everything I hate as I am not a great fan of shifting time lines, but I have to say the author got it spot on with this story. It layered the story beautifully, and because of differing POV’s it had me all twisted up inside. Seriously… this book puts the capital A in angst.


An original story that is written beautifully and will keep you guessing right until the end. An absolute MUST READ!
