Dropped smack-dab into the All-American dream, Faye should feel grateful. Except living with her wealthy uncle, his

While you will learn more about his brothers as the series progresses, they are secondary characters at this point as the main focus of the initial trilogy is Ky and Faye. Some of the boys feature more heavily than the others (like Keaton and Kalvin, for example.) Thanks for asking!(less)

A totally addictive read full with cat fights, teen anguish, lust and forbidden love.
“You asked me before to find myself. No to commit until I had. But, the thing is, I can’t find myself without you.”

Faye Donovan’s life has been turned upside-down. Having to move from Ireland to the other side of the world to her previously unknown uncle’s home in America with his seven intense and odd sons after her parent’s tragic c

This was my first book by author Siobhan Davis and I know it won't be the last! If you loved Paper Princess then you'll enjoy the first book in the Kennedy Boys series.

Finding Kyler has it all - family drama, twisted secrets, teenage angst, forbidden love, a takes no shit main character, and a beautiful boy with a tortured soul. The story sucks you up in a whirlwind, spits you out, and by the end you'll be gasping for air and raging war inside your head.

I'll start by saying that t
FINDING KYLER is proof that author Siobhan Davis has true grit behind her pen and is ready to share it with the world, no apologies, no holding back. Prepare to witness love, raw, desperate and like the Apple in the Garden of Eden, so very forbidden. Prepare to ride your own emotional Tilt-A-Whirl as your very heart and head are tested to their limits as two broken souls find comfort and a kindred spirit in the dysfunctional world they strive to survive in.

Faye has lost everything, her family, h

"Damn," I say fanning myself. "I think I got pregnant just watching."

Just like the first time I read this book I'm completely lost for words. With a forbidden love that is 10 times hotter than Cruel Intentions and a bunch of mean girls who put Kathryn Merteuil & Regina George to shame, this book has everything you need to quench your thirst for hot showdowns and bitchy meltdowns.

Faye's life has changed forever. While losing her parents isn't hard enough, a stranger is uprooting her and mov

I positively adore the Saven series. I really need to get to work on reading the True Calling books. I’m now finding myself in love with The Kennedy Boys, after just one book.

Upon finding out the final Saven book was delayed due to a contemporary read, my inner fangirl started to die a slow death. Could I wait so long to find out how the amazing series was to end? I didn’t know, but my heart was beating out the tune of how I’m rather impatient when it comes to awaiting promise filled books. Desp

A Paper Princess by Erin Watt rip-off, what the hell? It's exactly the same and I kept reading, thinking it would become original but it never did. You had the triplets that were exactly like the twins. Her getting close with Kalvin, their relationship exactly like Easton and Ella, then the douche Kyler that was a lame version of Reed. She even makes a friend named Rose that seems a lot like Val, even the dad behaves a lot like Callum. I know that sometimes ideas end up being similar but this is ...more

Scandal, scandal, scandal! I critiqued an early version of this for the author and really enjoyed it. Siobhan Davis is dipping her toes in the world of contemporary romance, mature YA/NA edition, and definitely set herself apart from the other literature out there.

Wow. This one took me out of my comfort zone. Tragedy rips Faye from the life she loves in Ireland and she ends up in America with family she did not know existed. Her seven male cousins are... intense. Almost instantly they get real sexually aggressive towards her. In front of their parents. Their father scolds them whenever they say or touch her inappropriately, but no one really has the reaction I would expect. Even Faye.

I was a bit surprised by how few characters in the book were actually r

When I heard Siobhan Davis was writing a contemporary romance I was immediately curious how she would pull off this genre. After finishing Finding Kyler I can only say she rocks this genre! Finding Kyler is an addictive read that I didn't want to put down once I started reading. It has the same character and relationship focus, drama, foreshadowing and cliffhanger endings that I am used to from her other books.

Wow. This was quite a book. I applaud the author for not only producing stories that suck you in and roil your insides, but for tackling difficult subjects. What am I saying "difficult"? Taboo, soul-sucking, forbidden, excruciating subjects. That's what I mean.

What I love most about Siobhan's work is the impossible situations in which she puts her characters. The binds she puts them in--there's no way out except for extreme pain or authors' tricks. I do hope she goes the pain way because tricks

For me being a fan of the royals series and the fallen crest series this book had everything I love in a good book. Drama, mystery, betrayal, love, friendship and the bond of family. The main character Faye, moves from Ireland to the USA after the death of her parents to live with her uncle, aunt and their seven sons. Who she didn't even no

Wow, I'm not even sure where to begin. I guess I could start by saying that I have read many of Siobhan Davis' books. I first came across her books starting with the Saven series and read all of those as well as her Tru calling series. I'm a sucker for YA science fiction! In those series the Author did a tremendous job creating what I like to call a whole new world/ universe. Even though those books took place on e

I revived this book in exchange for an honest review.

This was a fairly quick read and a pretty good one. I'm looking forward reading the sequels. My one and only complaint was that I couldn't keep track of all of the Kennedy brothers besides Kyler. The triplets were interchangeable to me and the older brothers weren't around much to leave any impression.

I really liked Faye, she was a breath of fresh air from the normal damsel in distress heroine that are in New/Young Adult books as of late. She
We received an ARC of this book from the author's assistant in exchange for an honest review.*

So I was told since I loved The Royals I would love this. I did not love this book. It was an extremely entertaining read. I was pulled in by the messy characters, and the story kept me guessing. But I did not love it, the reason being, it was a little too much like the Royals. I felt like I was reading it all over again. Finding Kyler had some extreme differences, but there were so many similarities in

Siobhan Davis is a new author to me. And I am not sure why I am just now hearing about her. Her assistant contacted me asking if I’d review an early copy of her next release, Finding Kyler, in a new series she was debuting. I was immediately interested after reading the blurb and was truly excited to read a new author (new to me).

I can’t sing enough high praises about Finding Kyler. Yes, some people will find the plot line to be taboo, but that’s what drew me in. I love the taboo and shocking st

It is chalked full of everything ... forbidden love, family secrets, school dynamics and so many twist and turns, you don't have a clue what's going to happen next.

Kyler is 1 of the 7 Kennedy brothers and he has been betrayed by his girlfriend and best friend. The only thing he feels for now is dirt bike racing, that is until a cousin (fr

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

Siobhan had me hooked from the very beginning and read nearly half of this book sitting at work during my shift. I was completely addicted to the writing and this angst driven story. This was roller coaster ride I never wanted to end, scared at every turn, and reeling when it was all over. There were so many twist and turns I'm still having a hard time dealing. I loved every minute reading this book and I need time to recuperate from that ending.

I have always loved Siobhan Davis' books, and this new series is truly addictive! The story of an Irish girl suddenly orphaned by a drunk driver, who then finds out that she has to go to America and live with her uncle and his family- who she never knew existed! The ultra rich Kennedys are a strange bunch of misfits, each with an underlying story of why they are the way they are. Also, she starts to have feelings for one of her cousins and then finds out secrets about her mother, her uncle

Where to start?

Should I start with a warning?
--Finding Kyler deals with a romance between family members.

Maybe I should mention that it ends on a cliffhanger?
--It ends on a whopper of a cliffhanger.

Should I warn you that you’ll find yourself invested in not one Kennedy brother, but desperate to know what’s going on with every Kennedy brother?
--Beware, you’re going to want to know what’s going on with every Kennedy brother.

Finding Kyler was absolutely amazing from beginning to end. Siobhan Davis blows you away with an intense, forbidden romance; which is raw, passionate yet consuming.

Faye's life changes overnight when her parents die. She moves to the US to live with her uncle and her seven cousins. Her jaw drops when she sees her cousins; she's actually ogling them lol. She's drawn to one in particular, Kyler:

What in the world????

Love a good Y/A book with drama. This has that plus more.

Faye leaving the only life she ever knew, to live with a family she never knew she had!! She entered a whole new life, but it was kind of like her old life in Ireland.

There was mystery, drama, a few good laughs, a few sad tears as well. All the good makings of a good book.

Faye lost family, but gained family as well. The more she uncovered from her cousins the more she learned she really didn't know her mom at all. Tha

In terms of romance novels, there are surely worse novels. Except now that I think about it, this is one of them. As a warning, this review DOES contain spoilers.

"Finding Kyler" starts by introducing us to Faye Donovan (although she doesn't use her last name until approximately 65% through the novel, so that's real helpful!), a girl who lives in Ireland and yet does not act like any Irish teenager I'
