Review of book 1, Lost in Between

It began as a ruse.

Take a girlfriend. Divert the press from the fucked up mess that’s my family until my father is re-elected. Stage a public breakup. Move on.

Only that brilliant plan went straight south the moment I set eyes on Willow Blackwell.

I found her.

My center. My future. A soul mate with the will of a mule and the mouth of a harpy.

I now want things I never wanted before. Permanent kinds of things.

Only Fate—and her ex—have other plans for us.

In some sort of cosmic impossibility, our lives unknowingly intersected years before when tragedy befell both our families. Once the devastating truth is finally revealed, the future I’d found in her will come crashing down around us and for the first time in my life I’m completely helpless.

I may very well lose the only woman I've ever loved to a past neither of us saw coming.

*warning: 18+ only. Contains foul language, explicit sex and a hot alpha (or two, or three). NOTE: This is NOT a standalone. It’s the conclusion to LOST IN BETWEEN, which MUST be read first.

MY REVIEW

4.5 "Hold My Hand" Stars!!

The conclusion to the Finding Me duet was absolutely stunning! And no, I'm not biased by my love of all things KL Kreig, although there seems to be no limit to her literary magic. This story and its predecessor had all of the makings for an epic duet. As is typical with this author, the writing was beautiful, fluid, eloquent, poignant and evocative. The plot and its characters were not only moving, but realistic. I also have trouble voicing and trusting my feelings and often get stuck in my own head so I found it quite easy to relate to Willow's character. These are just some of the reasons that earned this book its 5 stars. Read it for yourself to find the other reasons why.

"Everything before her is blank, empty. Everything after her is life."

Once again I was immediately captivated by the connection shared between Shaw and Willow. Their resistance to commitment was all but obliterated in the face of their deep and abiding love for one another. However, old habits die hard. Not only do they have to find a way to open up and truly make themselves vulnerable to each other, but past hurts suddenly become present torment, rocking the very foundation of the shaky relationship that Shaw and Willow are building.

"You are different because I'm in love with every last piece of you. The scared, the scarred, and the sacred."

The road to hell is paved with good intentions. What will the path to forgiveness even look like, if it even exists? Will these two beloved characters be holding onto each other in the coming storm? READ THE BOOK!! See for yourself how each character has grown and how their feelings have only further blossomed and witness their hard-fought journey to a possible happy ending.

I'll repeat my warning from Lost in Between: this story is not only heartwarming and profound, it is a freaking scorcher. No two ways about it, Shaw will melt your heart and your panties. KL Kreig is a master at writing truly beautiful erotic scenes between her lovers. This tale was sweetly romantic with a heavy contemporary feel and it was easy to fall in love with it and its characters. Although it was hard to say goodbye (you better believe I savored this read right to the end), I'm more than satisfied with where the author left things.

I highlighted pretty much the entire book but obviously can't include it in my review. However, I'd love to leave you with this final quote:
"There's no one here but you." I grab her hand and place her palm flat, right over my heart. It's racing. Beating for her. "No one else has ever been in here before. No one will be again." I didn't understand that crushing loneliness took up that space, but it's noticeably absent now, replaced with the only woman I'm convinced can breathe the very life into me."

That's just one example, out of many, that showcase how utterly swoon-worthy Shaw was!
