Book Review: Finding Kyler (#1 The Kennedy Boys)

Title: Finding Kyler (#1 The Kennedy Boys)

Author: Siobhan Davis

Genre: New Adult Romance

Release Date: January 2, 2017


Two fractured hearts and a forbidden love they can’t deny.

You shouldn’t want what you can’t have…

Faye Donovan has lost everything. After her parent’s tragic death, she’s whisked away from her home in Ireland when an unknown uncle surfaces as her new guardian.

Dropped smack-dab into the All-American dream, Faye should feel grateful. Except living with her wealthy uncle, his fashion-empire-owning wife, and their seven screwed-up sons is quickly turning into a nightmare—especially when certain inappropriate feelings arise.

Kyler Kennedy makes her head hurt and her heart race, but he’s her cousin.

He’s off limits.

And he’s not exactly welcoming—Kyler is ignorant, moody, and downright cruel at times—but Faye sees behind the mask he wears, recognizing a kindred spirit.

Kyler has sworn off girls, yet Faye gets under his skin. The more he pushes her away, the more he’s drawn to her, but acting on those feelings risks a crap-ton of prejudice, and any whiff of scandal could damage the precious Kennedy brand.

Concealing their feelings seems like the only choice.

But when everyone has something to hide, a secret is a very dangerous thing.


Full of scandal, dysfunctional families, teen soap-opera-style angst and drama, secrets and lies, mean girls and catfights, lust and love, book one in the unputdownable Kennedy Boys series will have you flipping the pages’ way beyond bedtime!

Only recommended to readers aged 17+ due to mature content and language.

Book Review+Tour Goodies: Rebel (#1 Dead Man's Ink) by Callie Hart...GIVEAWAY!!

Title: Rebel (#1 Dead Man's Ink)

Author: Callie Hart

Genre: MC Romance

Release Date: February 9, 2015


Rebel and Sophia's story.

The first of a three part series. This novel contains a small snippet which has already been released in the Owned: An Alpha Anthology, however it is followed by a full story installment.


Sometimes, you don't mean to become another person. Sometimes the choice is made for you, and pretending is the only thing that keeps you going. When Alexis Romera is taken and her kidnappers find her fake ID in her purse, she must become Sophia in order to keep her family safe. Revealing her real identity to the man she's sold to would be easy enough, but can she trust him? Hell bent on revenging the murder of his uncle, Rebel doesn't seem all that interested in playing things safe.
In fact, nothing about the secretive, dark and brooding MC president seems safe at all.


What do you do when the man who raised you is murdered, and the only witness is kidnapped girl who's being sold as a sex slave? You buy her, of course. As president to the most powerful motorcycle club in America, Rebel isn't lacking in power. There are strings the man can pull, and entire criminal organizations and corporate businesses alike would fall to their knees. However, along with such power comes intense interest. The DEA have their eye fixed solely on the MC...and they're just waiting for Rebel to trip up.

Getting Sophia to testify is the only way to bring the Los Oscuros cartel down. The beautiful, dark haired, dark eyed woman is belligerent and uncooperative and unlikely to bend to his will, but Rebel has a few tricks up his sleeve to make her compliant--he'll charm her until she's bending over backwards to please him.

Of course, falling for her might cause a few hiccups along the way...

A guy next to her, whose hair was dirty blonde reached over and plucked the knife up. He grinned at her, “I should teach you how to throw these things, Rayna. That’d be hot. Hell yeah. That’s our next chapter. Rayna and Brady, warrior ninjas.”

She groaned, covering her head with her hands. “Don’t get any ideas.”

He perked up, inspecting the knife. “Oh yeah. I can see it. Viola would be our sensei. Your grandma would be all about that.”

A girl with blonde hair sat on his other side and she grunted. “I could totally see that. Rayna, heads up. You’re going to learn how to kick ass in your next book.”

Rayna just shook her head, then reached for her glass and downed it. She started sputtering immediately, coughing some of it out. “Oh man.” Her hand wiped at her eye. “That wasn’t water.”

Logan, who’d been watching them and alternating so he was watching the vampire people laughed to himself. He said to Samantha, “She’s a book nerd down there. I bet you anything.” He studied the guy beside her. “Virgin. He took it from her.” He patted himself on the shoulder. “I’m damn good at figuring these people out.”

“Okay! Everyone sit. Cake’s coming now.” The chef drew everyone’s attention once again. The vampire group migrated towards their seats and the chef nodded to the two male servers, who lifted their trays at the same time and started for the table. As they drew closer, they began placing small plates of cake in front of each person. They needed to take two more trips back to the counter before everyone had a piece of cake.

The chef wandered to the end of the table closest to her. She gazed over every one sitting. They were all waiting. No one reached for their cake and the chef smiled, a tear coming to the corner of her eye. She nodded to the other end of the table, and as one, everyone’s heads turned to see who she was looking at.

The guy wearing a suit, who Mason had said was Carter Reed, was holding his hand up. His glass in it and he waited until everyone picked up their glass. Then he raised his in the air. He drew attention without commanding it. He said, his voice had a quiet authority, “To the franchise. May we come together and continue growing.” He grinned back to the chef before he added, “We welcome any new members to our family.”

Then he stood as he finished.

Everyone rose around the table.

All of them turned, all standing and looking towards the chef, who had her hands clasped over her mouth.

“Salute.” That one word from Carter was the signal. They all lifted their glasses one last time and took a sip. After, they returned to their seats, but still didn’t eat. Everyone waited to see if anything more would be said.

Then a chair was scraped backwards and a cup dropped from someone’s hands. Everyone turned to a far corner, where a girl had her hands cupped over her mouth in disbelief. She almost stumbled back from everyone, her eyes glued to the hallway behind the chef. “Jace,” she whispered, tears coming to her eyes. “My god.”


I hope you enjoyed this :-)
