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 car accident isn’t an easy adjustm

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

"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 movin

3.5 stars

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.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of Finding Kyler from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

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'

I was sent this ARC in regards to an honest review, and honest I am going to be. I know most others have rated this 4/5 stars, but I just cannot. I was really excited to read this, as it was mentioned if you were a fan of Elle Kennedy (Erin Watt) you would love it. Well, this is way to similar to Paper Princess and I just could not enjoy it. I could not even finish it as the more similarities I noted, the more I was just getting mad.

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

Holy Effing Taboo! Like seriously.

When I first started this book, I'm not going to lie, the similarities to Paper Princess were so extreme I was pretty shocked. By the end of the book I wasn't thinking about the Royals at all for comparison.

I wasn't sure I was okay with the taboo of a blood related relationship (even more so at the end) but turns out I'm either a seriously twisted kinky bitch or something about the story is just very intriguing and you sure as hell don't see many authors attack
2.5 stars

Why do I read shit like this? The better question is why did I finish it? I should have hated it. There were enough reasons to. It was like a soap opera; I just wanted to know what would happen next all the while knowing it would be ridiculous and far-fetched.

Most of the book was filled with obnoxious teenage drama. All of the girls hated Faye on sight, and all of the boys were into her. Everyone was scheming and plotting for one reason or another. The type and level of drama was remin
Five perfect & amazing stars for Faye and Kyler ❤❤❤!!!


When I got this book, I really didn't know what to expect. Because I didn't even read the blurb when I signed up for review.

All I knew was that this was dark bully high school romance trope with which I've got obsessed this year and it was written by Siobhan Davis.

And this was the reason why I was so shocked when I found out this book is about the forbidden love between two cousins.

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

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.

Mindy Lou's Book Review
This was just ok for me. I can admit that it is well written and I will definitely try a different series from this author but I just couldn't really find myself rooting for these people.

I think there are two factors to my less enthusiastic response. One, this is my third high school angst read and I keep hoping it will be as good as the first series I tackled. Two, the drama is way over the top, which I can normally deal with but I didn't like Kyler until almost the very end. For me, the Hero i
I had to think about my rating for this one. There were so many things that I normally despise in books inside this one. But I still really liked it and it kept me turning the pages. I kinda stopped looking at it as a romance and read it for the OTT angsty drama fest that it was. I mean Addison is more cartoon villain than mean girl in some ways. I’m hoping the romance gets better in the next two books which I’ll definitely be reading. Definitely not safe for those that care.

I'm baffled, but definitely not at a loss for words

I'd like to preface this review by saying that I have pretty liberal ideals, I'd like to think I'm open to a lot of different things, but this is not ok. I'm also well aware that an author doesn't need to support things to write about them, but this is just... on a whole other level.

Incest is gross!!!! No matter how you spin it! I'm fine with taboo subjects, in fact, I like reading about them, they always make for interesting stories. But incest

I loved Faye and Ky's story! I literally gonna jump into book 2 after this review. I love how Siobahn wrote this story. Many find cousins being in love very taboo and wrong. The heart loves who the heart loves! Faye is strong and independent. I loved her attitude throughout she is a very likeable character.

**ARC graciously provided by the author in exchanged for an honest review**

Unbelievably captivating tale of a story. Finding Kyler will take you on a war path of colossal amounts of emotions of highs and lows like you’ve never known before. Siobhan Davis is a genius to begin an intricate series weaved with suspension, romance and thick plots behind every corner.

Faye Donovan’s life has just dropped from under her when her parents are taken from her by a cruel accident. Now, months away from her
4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars! Forbidden. Omg I really liked this one, it has some ridiculous chemistry with the main characters. Taboo and well written.

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

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

This is 85% Erin Watt fan fiction and 15% original storyline.

"You should leave, before they ruin you too.” I mean I know the word ruin is pretty common, but COME ON.

Kyler Kennedy = Reed Royal
Kalvin = Easton

I'm with Brad (Wade). I can't get into the blood relatives hooking up thing. So even though that was original... it was too taboo for me.
