I couldn't put this book down. I usually don't care for the back and forth between past and present or different characters but the transitions were smooth and kept me wanting to keep reading. I loved the characters, I'm torn between my feelings on how it ended and I hope the author keeps the story going with a follow-up for the characters left behind.

AMAZING!! 5 brilliant stars. This is by far my favorite book this year. The plot is so unusual and not one that has been done a hundred times, so that's a bonus right there. This is the story of Maverick, who she loves, who she chooses and where her choices lead her. Let me say that I am not a fan of love triangles. This story struck such an emotional chord for me while reading it. Who I wanted for her at the beginning, is not who I wanted for her at the end of the story. I loved everything about it. I loved the messy, the confused, the love, the loss...all of it!! FANTASTIC!!

I don't think I've ever read a book that has made my head spin or made my heart hurt as much as this one. Black Swan Affair is a truly a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat every moment of reading it. It's a torturous book, but the payoff and getting to the end hurts so good. I will admit that a lot of reader may not like the ending, but I LOVED it. I had to let it simmer for a few days after reading, but I know that Maverick made the right choice. And she was a better person for it. It was surely hard to swallow at first. But logic, fate, and love made me see reason. Sometimes I still think back on this book and wish there was a way for everyone to win. But that's life. It's ugly and it hurts sometimes. And sometimes a love greater than the one who thought you knew and wanted demands to be seen and taken advantage of. I'll definitely be armed with a bottle of wine, chocolate and tissues the next time I dive into a KL Kreig novel. She was new to me going into Black Swan Affair and effectively ruined and made me whole all int he span of one day (that's how long it took me to devour this book). Hear this as a warning future self and other readers, Ms. Kreig delivers a hell of a book, but she likes to revel in the angst quite some time before she decides to take mercy on you. Happy Reading! *ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*

I could not put this book down or stop thinking about it for long after the last page! I laughed, I cried, I swooned, I yelled, I kept begging for more! This story seduced me from page one and held me captive with its raw and honest emotions. This book begins with Maverick DeSoto heartbroken before her wedding to her best friend, Kael Shepard, and not to his brother, Killian, who she has loved forever. It was such a confusing dilemma and so emotional that I had to know why that was happening! The Desotos and Shepards have been family friends forever. They played and grew up together. Maverick has always felt like an outsider despite coming from one of the towns most prominent familys. She is loving, thoughtful and caring which drew both Shepard boys to her from the start. When Mav is old enough, she and Killian secretly begin their love affair. When it looks like they can finally be together she is devastated when he marries her sister without explanation. Kael has always been her protector. He is selfless, kind, patient, and treasures her like no other. He asks her to marry him in the most romantic way that she can't say no. Just when Mav begins to let him go, Killian shows up confusing her with his cryptic words of love. Is he really the man she thinks he is or is there more to his actions than meets the eye? Should she give Kael the chance he deserves or is he hiding secrets as well. There are so many twists and turns and secrets that are slowly revealed it is hard to know who to trust. I fell in love with these characters and cheered for them all not wanting any of them to have their heart broken. Ms. Kreig expertly weaved a tale taking us between flashback and present day sequences that allowed us to understand the deep connections, profound love, friendships and actions that had me cheering and frustrated in equal measure. This is a beautifully written epic love story with deep heartfelt emotion, honest characters and hot, sexy love scenes. The ending took me by surprise and I absolutely loved it. It made me want to read it all over again immediately! This is a top read for me and I can't recommend this book highly enough.

THIS BOOK. Just WOW! It's been a while since I read a book almost straight through because of the need to know all of the answers, because of the inability to put it down because when I walked away, it just called to me. Black Swan Affair is a must read for everyone and a definite favorite of mine for 2016. Everything you need to know is in the blurb. I don't want to reveal anything to you as to really feel and experience everything I went through (and really all of the advanced reviewers if you have seen some reviews posted already), you should go in blindly and live through the moments; the moments that will steal your heart, the moments that will take your breath away, the moments that will make your emotions run wild. I felt it all and I promise that you will too. Black Swan Affair spoke to my heart and soul. Maybe it's because this is a story that has not been done before, maybe because the author poetically crafted a powerful story of what is true soulful love vs. young first love that is unforgettable. Both loves consumed me as a reader because I quite honestly felt for all of the characters...I loved them all. I didn't want anyone to walk away with a broken heart. I wanted everyone to have their happily ever after. I am on a total book high right now and my heart is SO very happy...K.L. Kreig is another new author to me that I had the privilege of reading and she mesmerized me with her magical way with words and storytelling. In a book world where so many books are similar, Kreig gives readers raw emotion, nail-biting angst and the ability to live these characters lives, to get to know them and love them so that you are rooting for everyone to have a happy ending. But really how can you when such a painful choice needs to be made? When you know that someone's heart will be broken and their life will be changed forever? I was completely enthralled...this book so hard to put down because I was obsessed with having to know the answers. Kreig seduced me in the best possible way and I am a huge HUGE fan. Readers looking for different, for something out of the box yet completely perfect and epic in EVERY SINGLE WAY need to read this book. This is a definite TOP PICK of 2016 and an emotional roller coaster of a ride reading experience that I will NEVER EVER FORGET. I do want to say that the author gave me a story that touched my heart and soul and I'm so happy she didn't take an easy way out with the decision in the end because this was truly such a wonderful reading experience...yes heart palpitations, angst and all - I would not trade those feelings and that high for anything else in the world. I LOVED IT!!!! Completely UNPUTDOWNABLE!

Going blind into this book is the best way to read this so I won't recount the plot, all you need to know is in the blurb. So this review will be a little bit different. KL Kreig has created a story with deeply flawed characters. It is told in a dual point of view and switches between past and present. This has the potential of becoming confusing and also a bit annoying but in this case it was masterly done. The story combines different tropes: there is the triangle trope, friends-to-lovers and a revenge aspect. Maverick is a radiant woman, proud, loyal and also a very caring friend. What she isn't is honest. She struggles with her feelings and I want to mention here that for the most part I admired the hell out of her for how strong and steadfast she stood. Kael is a swoon-worthy, dreamy, protective and magnetic character. He adores Maverick, his love is in every word. His mouth is also incredibly dirty. And he is one of those characters who see more than they admit. Killian is Kael's brother and for most of the book I didn't like him very much. He plays mind games and doesn't respect the boundaries Maverick sets. Sometimes, however, you see a bit of the vulnerable man underneath the veneer. The story line winds around lies and deception and as it is with all lies at some point they blow up in your face and let me tell you, I didn't see it coming. In the aftermath the heroine does something I have a moral dilemma with but she managed to get back in my good graces. One thing I'd like to mention, because it puzzled me in hindsight after all the revelations. The first chapter (and in between one or two more) didn't really make sense to me after I was done with the story. The way Maverick talked and lashed out didn't add up with the way things panned out in the end. Overall this was a highly enjoyable unusual ride and for the most part I loved the main characters. The story shows us that love comes in all flavors and shapes and isn't constant. It shifts and transforms as you grow and make room for change. If you love a story with a ton of steam and a twist that has you glued to the pages you should give this a try!

In my top reads of 2016!! You will not be able to put this book down. It is a page-turner! I read it all in one-sitting, well, as well as I could, since I was sitting on the edge of my seat, the entire time!! ;) The emotions that fly at you, with no warning... This book will definitely leave you with a book hangover. Remarkable story!! Sensational ending! Not enough stars. This book will stay with me for a very long time.
