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

4.5 "Hold My Hand" Stars!!

The conclusion to the Finding Me duet was absolutely stunning! And no, I'm not biased by my love of all things KL Kreig, although there seems to be no limit to her literary magic. This story and its predecessor had all of the makings for an epic duet. As is typical with this author, the writing was beautiful, fluid, eloquent, poignant and evocative. The plot and its characters were not only moving, but realistic. I also have trouble voicing and trusting my feelings

descriptionAt the end of book one I was a bit on the fence on whether I would bother going on to read this one or not. I enjoyed book one, but it didn't WOW as much as I expected it to. That said when this landed on my tablet I found myself curious to see how all these twists and turns and secrets would turn out and I am happy to report that I enjoyed this one IMMENSEL

Everything in this book aligned in the most perfect way, resulting in 5 breathtakingly beautiful stars! I was completely captivated and mesmerized by the exquisite writing and the way the characters bled their passion and emotion into every nook and cranny of the story. I couldn't have asked for anything more from this book. It was a perfect storm swirling with electric heat, agonizing heartbreak and an unrelenting, all-consuming love that left me breathless.

Cannot be read as a standalone.

A great conclusion! With all the steamy and passionate scenes, I couldn't put this down.

The story also had some good twists that got me riled up.

I thought some of the moments went a bit too slow (kind of like the previous book), but I honestly enjoyed these books.

“Lost in Between” is the first part of the duet “Finding Me” and it ends in a cliffhanger. “Found Underneath” is the conclusion to the duet.

“Finding Me” is the story of Shaw and Willow, whose relationship begins on a contract and then, goes far beyond their plans and imagination.

See the review of the first part of the duet "Lost in Between" here:

This second book starts where the first book ends and the story slowly unfolds until all secrets are revealed.

"And he's eyeing me as if I'm the queen he needs to secure his kingship, his rightful place on the throne. As if I'm his next and only breath."

WOW! Ok, so we all know how LOST IN BETWEEN ended and the emotional position Shaw and Willow were put in with their pasts colliding. This book immediately picked up where that one left off. Their turbulent love affair was compounded by their pasts, and their pasts have come back to haunt them in a crazy twist of events only the devil

I'm never quiet about what I like in a book. It basically all comes down to two major things. 1. Feels. 2. Angst. I such an angst whore, it's ridiculous. I want to feel like my heart is being ripped out of my chest and stomped on. I love seeing how the author brings it back together from that level. And then throw in the feels. Romantic, swoony, tender, innocent, all of it. Add them together and I'm a happy, happy camper, so you can imagine that I was ecstatic to be reading Found Underneath.

#MostAnticipatedRead #ShawIsMine #ExcerptAndGiveaway

Shaw never lets go of my hand as he stands, but once he’s on his feet, he drops it to my side and takes my face in his stronghold. Uncaring that someone’s waiting for us, he lowers his mouth to mine and gives me the sweetest kiss I’ve ever had in my life. It brims with reverent purpose and burgeoning love.

I could not wait for KL Kreig to write this second installment in the Finding Me duet. I swear, I devoured the first book, Found in Between, in a day. Shaw Mercer was simply perfection for me as a lead MC. A wealthy, successful businessman, devoted family man, dominate dirty talker who's brought to his manwhore knees when he least expects it. That's this duet in a nutshell. Add a lot of depth of plot, deception and secrets and we've got a great story.

Lost in Between ended with so many questions and emotions I don't know where to start. My feelings were on the precipice of either falling over and being frustrated, I am torn between Reid Mergen and Shaw Mercer and I'm not sure I approved of Willow Blackwell's decision.

You must read Lost in Between in order to read (fall in love with) Found Underneath.

Well, I wasn't expecting to be a puddle of tears as I read this one, but goodness did it make me emotional! K.L. Kreig warns readers that it's going to be one heck of a ride, but I wasn't prepared for the amount of emotions I'd feel as I read Found Underneath. The final book in the Finding Me duet made me cry, laugh, steam with anger, and fall head over heels in love

“…bad memories take up too much space and you need that space for good memories.”

It did take us a while to get back into the swing of things with these characters; we felt it moved quite slow and felt quite repetitive nookie wise. However, that’s not saying we didn’t enjoy this book, as we sure did. We loved Willow and our hearts still broke for her, yet we celebrated her feistiness, her strength and her compassion. We understood her reluctance to open up and her actions of self-p
Moral of the story: sharing is caring. I love these two (and Noah) but there would have been a lot less angst if everyone just shared information in a timely manner.

‘Sometimes getting lost is how we find ourselves.’

This is the fantastic conclusion to Shaw and Willow’s story and it was perfect! At the end of Lost in Between these two seem to have moved from a short term paid arrangement to them falling for each other. However, there is a lot more at stake now.

Shaw’s father is busy campaigning for the election and is counting on Shaw to stay out of the papers, keeping their family name in a good favour. Willow is overwhelmed with what she is feeling for S

Found Underneath is the second part of Shaw Mercer and Willow Blackwell’s story. Shaw is born into privilege and is one of Seattle’s most eligible bachelors. As the son of Seattle’s mayor, conformity is of the utmost importance to help his father get reelected for a second term. Willow is an escort and accepts to play the part of his girlfriend for a few months, against a substantial sum. As it happens, their business arrangement has turned out to be far more than they initial

There is a shortlist of authors that will have me coming back to their writing with every single release. KL Krieg is most definitely on that list, even more so after I finished reading Found Underneath. There is something to be said about a style of writing that hooks its claws into your soul, making you forget all other happenings in your life.
Gripping. Heartfelt. Flawless. These are the adjectives that pop into my mind when I think of this duet.
The characters are down to earth and real, so

What a sweet ending! I loved this conclusion. All the characters are well fleshed out. There's no excessive bantering or descriptions. No over the top ex woman. Just a really beautiful love story.

The best part... SHAW!

He's in my top 3 book heroes! OMG! Hot dude who is sans dark past, deep rooted issues. Just a man driven to succeed and love his family. I have rarely read a hero POV where there is so much devotion and love for a heroine. From the moment he truly realizes he's in love he's goes ha

What a conclusion...

I'm emotionally drained after reading this. What a book!

Shaw and Willow took me on a ride of emotional highs and lows,
Their love for each other didn't waver, their commitment was UNBREAKABLE,
their STRENGTH and LOVE tested. Their FIGHT was til the end. This story was written phenomenally and was told brilliantly.

This book was EVERYTHING I'd hoped and more. Willow is balls to the wall with her sassy mouth. I loved her character so much. She's

This is the conclusion to the Finding Me series. If you have not read Lost in Between then you need to turn away now. This review will be spoilery for that book. I will do what I can to not ruin this one though.

I felt so strongly while reading this. I laughed and cried and loved. I wanted more of Shaw and more of Willow. I also wanted more of Annabelle, more Noah. Hell, I even want more Reid. I want it all!!!

KL Kreig doesn’t just write words she writes words that will leave you desperate, needing more words, more stories, more perfection. She is a DJ with words and a mastermind of storytelling. I love to read and I will usually devour the words, but this author, she is something special. It's not about devouring her words its about letting them sink in and take hold. It takes a lot for me to fan girl over an author, but I would seriously hide in the bushes just to watch Ms. Kreig eat a peanut butter

Found Underneath is everything I needed from the conclusion of K.L. Kreig's Finding Me duet. It is suspenseful, sexy, and provides that HEA I've been dying for since the end of book one.

Shaw is still that irresistible hero, desperately trying to hold onto all the people he loves while protecting them from harm. In this book in particular, he flays his heart open for Willow and eases her doubt at every turn. Even when making bad choices, rea

Please note, you must read Lost in Between (Finding Me #1) Before reading this one.

Picking up right where we left off in Lost in Between, this story was all that I thought it would be/deserved to be.

For most of my life, I’ve wondered if it’s better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

Shaw is a woman’s dream man! I have thought of him since finishing the first book. He didn’t sell me short in this book either. Could it be

I think I need therapy after reading Found Underneath....or maybe a stiff drink (or 5). I LOVE books that hook me emotionally. Books that dig their claws into me and don't let go. Those are the ones that I will never forget. Those characters will never be far from me.
I was rooting for Shaw and Willow from the beginning. Shaw discovering love for the first time was a beautiful thing. Holding onto all the people he loves and protecting them at the same time is a tough job but he's going to try.

That was a great sequel to this duet. I loved how this story evolved. I was expecting this to be a drama-packed read and it was. There were some very emotional and ugly cry moments that were very intense. Some of the events were pretty much predictable with the way the 1st book ended, but there were still things that surprised me and there were some nice twists that wrapped up the story nicely.

Shaw was his typical cocky, very alpha, overpossessive and overprotective man. He was acting almost lik
