Lost in Between
That magic number that will get us to agree to do anything, be anything.
Don’t sit on your gold-plated high horse and say you don’t because you do. Everyone does. Each of us has something we covet enough that we’d sell ourselves to have it.
What’s my tipping point, you ask? Apparently a cool quarter mil will do the trick.
What does one do for 250 la ...more
I fell in love with K.L. Kreig's writing when I read Black Swan Affair. The writing was smooth, beautiful, eloquent, poignant and evocative and part of me felt that that 5-star read was some sort of fluke. Well, that theory was quickly quashed when I got lost in th ...more
Since I've read and enjoyed my first book by this author, 'Black Swan Affair', I was eagerly looking forward to start this series. 'Lost in Between' is thrilling, tastefully erotically done and fantastically written. This first installment in the series is sexy, scorching hot at times, sweet, emotional and even funny. Needless to say, I enjoyed it very much. If you love intriguing stories with sexy as sin alpha males, you don’t want to miss this one.

Some offer an escape.
Others give you friendships.
Bring you a family you never knew you wanted.
But then there are the ones that ruin your life!
Okay maybe those are harsh words...I said maybe. Maybe I thought (foolishly I admit), that this would be the sweetest most uncomplicated book in the world. Nobody would think that, this is KL Kreig, drama and twist are her middle name. I'm positive.
Ok you aren't reading this to find out that I contemplate stalking KL further t ...more
When I read the blurb for Lost In Between, I was sold! Let’s be honest, just the mention of a dirty talking, dominant alpha was enough for me! Then, I saw that the author was K. L. Kreig, and you have to have been living under a rock not to have been subjected to the hype surrounding her previous book, Black Swan, so at that point there was no question that I was going to read this book! Needless to say, I went into this one with excitement and high expectations, and while it didn’t ...more
Surprised me it did...in such a good good way!!

After finding out that everyone and their Mama has read “ Black Swan Affair”, I knew I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to read this book because let’s be real: an escort that has secrets of her own that’s being offered a quarter of a million dollars to be a fake girlfriend to one of the hottest bachelor’s? I practically needed a baby bib with the amount of drool I was sporting but after reading this, I was left feeling unsatisfied with a huge case of it’s not you, it’ ...more
Shaw Mercer needs a girlfriend. A fake one. One to be at his beck and call for the next 4 months.
Willow Blackwell needs money. A lot of money. Her mother is sick and the bills are starting to pile up.
When Shaw offers Willow a cool quarter million for four months of her time, the offer is too good for Willow to pass up. But this is just business and business is what it will stay. That is until lines start to blur and feelings Willow swore she wouldn't develop start to creep in.
Now the waters a ...more
The duet is about Shaw and Willow, whose relationship begins on a contract and then, goes far beyond their plans and imagination.
Shaw is a man who doesn’t do relationships. It is not because of a cliché traumatic past, he just thinks he doesn't need one. He has casual sex with numerous women and he shares some of them with his best friend Noah! (yeap, ...more
This is the second book I’ve read by this author. Black Swan being the first which I absolutely loved and couldn’t wait to get my grabby little hands on this to see what kind of journey she was going to take us on.
LOST IN BETWEEN: This is spoken in 'Dual Perspectives'
A day that goes from bad to worse, from a flatmate meltdown, to a mother that’s suffering from Alzheimer’s, things needing to be fixed in the family home to being rear ended by a hot arrogant bastard whilst st ...more
Overall Opinion: Hmmm.... I'm a bit disappointed to be honest. I think after Black Swan Affair this author had a tough act to follow. I felt like it was mostly inner dialogue (which I usually hate) and not much really happened. To be frank, I think we could've done with a lot of it edited out and the duet been made a solo. It felt repetitive at times, and like it was just being stretched out. While they had great sexual chemistry and scenes, I never connected to either of the mc's chara ...more
Last year’s Black Swan Affair by this author made my Best of the Year list, and I loved it so much. Because of this I want to read everything else by this author (and I still do). Lost in Between is a book I know others will love, but it missed the mark a bit for me.
Willow works as an audio book narrator by day, and an escort at night. After getting into a fender bender accident with an extremely handsome (if not arrogant) man named Shaw, Willow finds herself pondering about this goo ...more
We all have one.
Having read Black Swan Affair that really messed up with my sanity because of the issues delivered, I was so eager to read Lost In Between. Well, you cannot blame me. BSA is my first book of the author and it left lasting impression, so needless to say, I was having high expectations in this book. The blurb alone and that cover caught my interest stat and I'll be honest it took me until almost the end to realize that it was a duet. That's saying something rig ...more
K.L. Kreig is an author that has been on my radar for quite some time now after I absolutely devoured Black Swan Affair. So when I found out that she was going to be releasing a new book, I knew that I had to get my hands on Lost In Between especially after reading the synopsis.
We all have one. A price. That magic number that will get us to agree to do anything, be anything. Don’t sit on your gold-plated high horse and say you don ...more

‘…if loving someone – anyone – eventually leads to heartbreak, loss, and mourning, why do we do it? Why do we continue to let people into our lives, our hearts? Steal our very soul out from under us before we realize a vital piece of us is forever missing?’
Clear a space on the top shelf of book boyfriends….there’s a new man claiming a top spot and his name is Shaw Mercer. Bloody Nora, this man had us coming….over…..all unnecessary! We had a feeling we’d love Lost in Between but w ...more
Well hot dayum, is it May 2017 yet? Because I cannot wait for the next installment in this duet. Lost in Between had me hooked from literally the first chapter. Let me say first and foremost that Shaw Mercer is mine, ladies and gents. Holy smokes that man has everything I look for in a book boyfriend. He's tall, dark, muscled, just enough scruff, and rocks a suit the likes of Christian Grey. In fact, this book had a very Fifty feel to it for me. And again, Shaw is mine!

“This is part of the dance, Goldilocks.”
“Stop calling me that.” My reprimand comes out breathy instead of irate as I’d wanted.
“Every couple has pet names for each other. We’re a couple now.”

Hot breaths wash over the column of my neck when his mouth travels to my ear. “It’s more than just paper, sweetheart. My hands will be on you. Touching you, stroking you, holding you. My lips will graze your ear, your neck, your shoulder, your mou ...more
I tried, really tried to like this book, but I just couldn't get into it. The only reason I didn't give up on this book is because it was an ARC.
I'm honestly not sure why this book has so many 5 stars. Did I miss something?
The story was too long and it dragged. I don't get why it even ends with a cliffy. o.O Lots of parts could have been removed and if it would have been at a faster pace, I might have given this book a higher rating. I practically skimmed through the las ...more
5 AMAZINGLY AWESOME and PHENOMENAL CROWNS
This is my first KL Kreig book, and I am now a fan, a HUGE FAN. This book is everything! There is chemistry so electric, so combustible I can feel it in my own limbs, there are plot bombs and intrigue, and that ending, GOD that ending killed me! Is it May? Can it be May?
One of the reasons I adore this book is because of the hero. Shaw is life! Holy hell! This man is everything I want from an alpha hero. He is unbelievable ...more
“He looks like sex and candy. And sex. Forget the candy. He looks exactly like sex.”
This book has got me all excited because hot damn, it's one of the most beautiful and sexy cover I've seen. And let's be honest, I am a self-confessed #bookwhore as its everything for me. And this is by K.L. Kreig so, there's that. And no, I don't know what I'm getting into until I've started reading.

Yes....yes, yes, YES!!! I have to say that I am SO glad I picked up Black Swan Affair by KL Kreig, because that led to my LOVE AFFAIR WITH HER WORDS.
