REVIEW: Luke’s Absolution by KL Kreig

Lukes Absolution Banner

LOVE a man that shows how he FEELS

There comes a time as a reader when you find an author that ticks every single box of what you are looking for. For me, KL Kreig is that author. From the very first pages of this book, KL Kreig drews me into a mindfield of sexual tension, longing and raw need. Her words are expertly woven to draw you in and invest you in the story in under 5 pages.

I have to admit that I have been eagerly awaiting Luke’s book since I met him in book 1. I was intrigued by the blend of ultimate bad boy with a heart of gold who is not afraid to go after the girl he wants while being willing to wear his heart on his sleeve. And man was I ever delighted by him in this book. The way that he was able to switch from being dirty and delicious to sweet and delicious had me wanting to grab him and keep him all for myself. What I loved most about his character is his firm belief that he was always doing the right thing by his family but ended up on a path that took him through the depths of darkness before finding himself and the light.

Addy’s fight against her attraction to Luke is a product of circumstances. Too many times she has been second best, not good enough and coming out as the loser in love. She knows in her head that Luke will destroy her but she is just not able to get her body and heart on board with the plan. I loved her own personal journey throughout this book, parallel to Luke’s. She had to overcome some major hardships to be able to trust in herself and love again. That she was able to find peace through the strength gained through love is a testament to the awesome relationship between this pair.

What I love most about KL’s alphas, and is demonstrated beautifully with Luke in this book, is that while there might be a bit of trepidation in the beginning, her men play for keeps. Throughout this story, once he accepted that Addy was his, Luke was not shy in demonstrating nor coming to terms with the fact that for him Addy was his forever girl. It is for this very reason that I swooned at the actions of Luke throughout this book. If you want an alpha that can’t see past his girl from the moment he lays eyes on her, then you want to read this book.

There is no denying the spark between this pair. Even when they are dancing around each other, the innuendo and sinful promises are enough to turn you inside out with desire. I have to say that some of the scenes where so hot that I almost needed a cold shower. And let me tell you that I will forever more look at ice pops a different way.

And let me tell you, I am typically one to cry about what is happening in a book. But there was one moment with Luke that had tears escaping my eyes. I felt every bit of emotion of what was happening in that scene and there was no denying that it was all because of KL’s innate ability with words.

Once again, KL wove a spellbinding web around me with her words. Her ability to capture and invest me in her story and characters mesmerizes me each time and especially with this book. I find that her words flow into one another so effortlessly that I didn’t even realise I was turning the pages so quickly. I cannot wait to see the last Colloway brother fall. I think it will be possibly be the hardest crash yet. But I do know that KL has cemented her place as one of my fave authors. Readers who love alpha’s with hard exteriors and soft centres all mixed with dirty talk and even dirtier moves will love this and all the books in this series. Not to be missed.

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).
