REVIEW: Black Swan Affair by KL Kreig

Genre: Romantic Erotica

Heat Level: Explicit

There is no denying that KL Kreig has done it once again with this novel. A love triangle that will have your heart aching, blood pounding and your stomach twisted in knots. From the first words to the last fullstop, I was captured.

If there is one thing that KL Kreig does flawlessly, it’s the way that she takes me through the full gamet of my emotions EVERY time and makes me really FEEL them right alongside the charaters. The tight chest of indecision, the heat from being turned on, the protectivness of being loved, the sorrow, stress and heartbreak – I felt every damn one. And that readers, is why Black Swan Affair deserves a place on your reading list. It’s turmoil, happiness and the epitome of LOVE that shines.

There are so many twists and turns in this book that I believe it is best read without the preconceived notion of how the love triangle in this book plays out or too much in depth background stories of the characters, that I am going to be a bit vague from here on out in this review. Because half of the thrill of this book is experiencing it.

Whether it’s Kael or Killian that Maverick ultimately chooses, it is about the journey of discovering what it means to love. It is the thrill of falling in love but also the devastation of falling in love. It is a love story told in such a unique way that only KL Kreig can deliver it.

I love KL’s uber alphas. And this book is no different. She gives readers men that are so enamoured with their woman that it makes your heart flutter. It is the pure love that radiates when they are talking, loving and being flayed open because they can’t let go. They are selfish and selfless, and yes I know that is an oxymoron, but works so perfectly. And yes I know that I am being vague but really that’s all you need to know – names are irrelevant before you read this book.

Maverick was quite the conundrum for me throughout this book. There were times were I seriously wanted to slap some sense into her. Because while I felt things were obvious, it was not all what it seems. In the end, she really grew on me. So even when I thought that I would never be able to connect with her, I found myself being empathetic to her situation through KL’s words and character development.

This book was HOT…the tension between the characters sizzled. And there was one particular scene in the book, while it was told through sexual acts, really built the foundation for this story. And, although this book is explosively hot, it is the way that the sex compliments the complexity of the characters and the storyline that makes it so toe curlingly good.

To say that I was glued to this book is an understatement. Black Swan Affair consumed me. I could not put it down, desperate to know how it ended for everyone involved. It is when books take you on that journey that you realise as a reader that you have come across a truly talented author. And while this is no surprise to me, as I have been a fan of KL for quite a while now, it is always an awesome feeling to have experienced. So, if you want a book that has it all – great storyline, emotion and enticing writing – Black Swan Affair and KL Kreig is what you need to check out. A true page turner, I can’t wait for more from this exciting and enticing author.

5 hearts




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.

About KL Kreig

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 vicious 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).
