I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
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 soulmate 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.
Immediately after I finished Lost in Between this winter, Found Underneath became one of my most anticipated 2017 Spring time reads. Once again KL Kreig did not disappoint.
The story line picks up right where LiB left off. We find Shaw and Willow deeper into their “fake” now real relationship. Willow is faced with fending off her creepy ex Reid and coming to terms with how her relationship with Shaw started. This part of their story is very much about honesty and trust, and wondering if it’s possible based on how they started. And the mystery of a hinted past connection between them takes center stage.
Kreig’ writing is exquisite. She creates a connection between Shaw and Willow that is beyond sexy, showcasing the developing intimacy. Willow begins to accept what Shaw means to her but she remains too trusting of Reid. She also excuses her roommate Sierra’s Shaw bashing (grrrr) as “Sierra looking out for her” but I found myself doubting her intentions, and again found myself talking wishing I could talk to Willow. Shaw remains unflinchingly dedicated to Willow and to building a future with her.
Kreig does a commendable job plotting the story out and wrapping up all the loose ends. I am extremely satisfied with how the story progressed and how the characters developed throughout the story line. I highly recommend this sexy 5 Star duet.
~Review by Cyndi
As a USA Today Bestselling author, I write stories that are deeply emotional with flawed characters, because humans ARE flawed and if we read about perfect characters living in their perfect world, first of all, snoozer, but secondly, we never experience the gratification of redemption.Outside of writing, 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. 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).
