Blog Tour: Black Swan Affair - K.L. Krieg


Black Swan Affair by KL Kreig is LIVE!

"This book owned me as I turned page after page, wanting to both savor every beautifully written word and race to the end. Black Swan Affair is easily one of my top reads of the year.” – USA Today Bestselling Author, Meghan March








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 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.




I have to admit to being nervous about starting Black Swan Affair.  While the blurb drew me in, it also scared me.  I don’t mind love triangles, just not a fan of them when marriage is involved.  But I put aside my misgivings because I knew if this was written well, it would be an amazing story.  And it was.  This was my first K.L. Krieg book and I have to say I definitely want to pick up her other books because this was exquisitely written.  I was riveted from the very beginning and was so enthralled I threw stuff at my husband when he tried to talk to me.

The characters within this story are flawed, raw and complex.  Maverick is torn between two brothers—Killian who she has loved since she was young and Kael who she married.  She’s at times vulnerable, at times spunky, and at times independent.  You really get to take a journey with her through painful self-discovery.  Reflection is rarely easy and it isn’t easy for her.  I got to accompany her on the rollercoaster of emotions:  love, hatred, regret, heartache, happiness…and so much more.  Parallel to Maverick’s love of Killian has been Kael’s love for Maverick.  He’s been waiting on the sidelines, cheering her on and supporting her while quietly waiting for his chance to make her see him.  To make her see his love.  Man, that every woman had a Kael standing at her back.  His steadfast love for her was breathtaking.  But Killian loved her too and had made sacrifices to protect her. 

This isn’t an easy book, it’s difficult and real and raw.  It’s about whether or not you can let go of love, choose to love someone else and move on.  It’s about the many different types of love there are, the slow burn, the furious flame, etc.  I am so glad I didn’t let my misgivings keep me from this book.  It was breathtaking.  In the midst of all this personal turmoil, there’s also some mystery and suspense going on.  A few twists that were unexpected.

Definitely a book to one-click today, don’t let the blurb scare you off.  I promise you, it’s worth it.  -Peace and Love, Buxom J

About the Author:

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).
