I loved how this story is about forgiveness, and I am all about second chances, depending on the situation. I already went into this story not liking Lana. Kal, on the other hand, I really liked. So, I was like how will this play out after what they had been through?

What kept me from giving this a 5 was Lana! Kal did pretty much all the work in the beginning, even trying to locate her at her school. She should have been the one trying to win Kal back for what she had did. Because if I was Kal,

Happy Book Birthday!!

Two young people whose backgrounds are quite different but having grown up together and been a constant in each other’s lives has bonded them forever in way they’ve yet to fully understand and only with love, understanding and forgiveness will they be able to get a shot at happy ever after.

It was difficult to see past her beaten and broken heart. The lie about what had happened between her and Kalvin Kenney had slipped out easily before the consequences of it could sink

Well, Siobhan Davis is full of shocking surprises as she leads her readers down into the depths of her mind, imagination and the sensitive issues she writes about with such great care to detail. LOVING KALVIN goes above and beyond in the telling of one young couple’s twisted tale of love, loss and second chances. Get ready for the emotional upheaval, the gut-clenching revelations and the proof that just maybe dreams can come true, but it will certainly take more than the flick of a magic wand.

Loving Kalvin in the fourth book in the Kennedy Boys series, but it is the first book in the series to work as a standalone novel. Although you do not need to read the Kyler books (the first three books in the Kennedy Boys series), it will help you somewhat if you have read those books. The Kyler books will give you a lot more background into the characters and some of the details brought up in this story. However, the Kyler books contain a taboo romance that will not be for everyone. Should the ...more

Having previously read the other Kennedy Boys books, I couldn't wait to get started on Loving Kalvin. For fans of the series, you'll know about the history of Lana and Kalvin and like me, you're probably dying to know how all that turns out!

The book is written in dual POV, which I kind of love. I've read several books this way lately and I like getting two (or even three sometimes) points of view to see what multiple characters are thinking. I enjoy getting into their heads, so to speak. So, thi

“If you love someone, really love someone, you stand by them, even when they’ve screwed up. Especially then. You forgive them for their mistakes”
― Siobhan Davis, Loving Kalvin

This is such a beautiful romance. Yes there is drama and there is angst, but in my opinion that just made the romance that much more romantic. And lordy, can Siobhan Davis write some beautiful romance!! She also wrote some great hot and heavy scenes too!

Kalvin and Lana are soulmates.

In Loving Kalvin, we are transported to the Sunshine State where Kal and Lana are going to college. Even though there isn’t much of the Kennedy clan in this book, we get to meet new characters that quickly steal your heart, and I promise there is still plenty of drama, secrets, and lies that will make your jaw drop and keep your eyes glued to the pages.

We already have witnessed Kal’s growth as a character during the trial, but in Loving Kalvin, you get to see how often Kal’s newfound maturity i

Loving Kalvin is the 4th book in Siobhan's The Kennedy Boys series. It is a standalone, however, if you want to understand the true meaning behind Kalvin and Lana's history, I would highly recommend reading the previous three books, which you do need to read in order.

Quick background:

Kalvin and Lana have known each other since they were two. But they were never on the same level in society's eyes. He was the rich boy and she was the daughter of the help. As they got older, Kalvin denied whatever

Kalvin Kennedy has only had one girl in his heart; Lana Taylor. When they bump into each other at the University of Florida, Kal knows he has to win her back. Lana still remembers the bittersweet moment when she wrote the letter to Kal asking him to leave her alone. When she seems him in Florida, she doesn't know what to do. Staying away doesn't feel like an option...

I've waited for AGES for Kalvin's story to be written since I've read about them in Finding Kyler.



And when it landed onto my Kindle. My first reaction was:



Of course, I dived into it right away.



And ended up:



It wasn't pretty. It was full fledged sobfest and ugly cry but I loved every second of it.

I have always favored Kalvin over the other Kennedy boys, despite his reputation as a playboy, it's his boyish charms and thoughtfulness that reeled me in. Like Lana, I was irrevoc

I was really lucky to read a beta copy of this book. This review, like all of mine, is spoiler free.

I was really excited for this book, because Kalvin is one of my favorite of the Kennedy boys. He's tied with Keaton, actually as my favorite Kennedy boy. I like how he always supported Faye and Ky, and that really endeared me to him, even if he was a lil bit of a playboy.

While I was never a big Lana fan, I was definitely open to the idea of them ending up together, mainly because I could tell fr

Wow this book was really good! It has a sweet and beautiful love story, but also deals with some tough topics. We met Lana and Kalvin in the first three books in this series and I always have been curious about their story. They just seemed so good together, but then things happened and I wasn't sure how they would get back from that. I loved that they get their second chance in this book and I am pretty sure it's my favorite book

5/5 Forgiveness Stars

The author gifted me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is my favorite Kennedy book of the series. I am quite shocked that it is considering how things were left between Kal and Lana in the Kyler books. I don't want to get all spoilery so I will just say this: What Lana did to Kal in a prior book was an absolute deal breaker for me. If I were Kal, I might be able to forgive her to give myself some peace, but I would never want anything to do with her a

I received an eARC of this book from the author. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of this review.

On starting Loving Kalvin by Siobhan Davis, I knew I was in for some heart ache. Having read the first part of The Kennedy Boys series, I knew Lana and Kal’s history and my heart already hurt for this pair. Something inherent was broken and I really didn’t know if it could be fixed. So I was anxious to begin and once I started I couldn’t set it down. Told in dual POV (which

I had not read the previous book in this series and I really don't think it is necessary the author gives enough background information to you won't be lost.
What happens when the boy/man you have loved all your life doesn't appear to love you too? And then hooks up with the family enemy? Lana accuses Kalvin of the unthinkable and then takes it back and runs away.
Lana is tying to start over. Her heart is broken but she is determined to begin again and put the trial behind her.

Kalvin and Lana grew up together and were best friends. In high school their relationship changed and their feelings were much deeper however neither was mature enough to handle how they felt for each other. Kalvin hurt Lana more than once and when she reached her breaking point she hurt him in the worst way possible. She knows that he would never be able to forgive her and why should he so she tells him to never contact her again and she leaves town.

Siobhan has done it yet again! I swear she can't write anything bad even if she tried!

this book follows Kalvin and Lana. I don't want to cause any spoilers but know it is full of emotional turmoil but with such a feel good ending you can't help but smile the whole time.

while this is the 4th book of a series it can be read as a standalone. some characters will make more sense if you do read the first 3 books though.

**I voluntarily read a review copy of this book. All opinions stated are solely my own and no one else's*

Loving Kalvin was absolutely amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Kalvin made a lot of mistakes when it came to Lana. He hurt her repeatedly but when he lost her, his heart ached and he realised how much he loved her. Has he genuinely learnt from his mistakes?

Lana is determined to make a fresh start but when her past catches up with her present, she finds herself drowning with the guilt of h

Loving Kalvin by Siobhan Davis- Kalvin was accused of raping his girlfriend, Lana, and is scheduled for court. Eleven months later they are both attending the same college and run into each other by accident. Lana is hiding something from Kalvin and she's reluctant to tell him about it. The story contains graphic language and graphic sexual content and fits in the new adult genre. The characters are more vulgar and arrogant than in the Kyler Kennedy books. Lana was a contradiction of confidence ...more

Lana made plenty of mistakes but you still end up liking her as well. This book can be a stand alone, but there are other books by Siobahn Davis that touch on their shared history, as well as their friends. I am looking forward to seeing more books out of this series.

Prepare to have your mind changed. Forget your Lana hate. This is the best Kennedy Boys book yet! I will be honest, I was not a Lana fan. I mean, she's no Addison, but she never seemed to have much personality and then she went and hurt a Kennedy. And since I am confessing, Kalvin and Lana didn't hold any appeal to me as a couple either. Siobhan Davis proved her worth with this book. Not only did I change my mind about Lana, I actually became sympathetic and sided with her at times. And more tha ...more

Loving Kalvin is the fourth title in the Kennedy Boys series. Whilst this title can be read as a stand-alone, I would highly recommend reading the previous three titles in order to fully understand the backstory of Kalvin and Lana.

I had really come to adore Kalvin's character in the previous titles of this series, and was incredibly eager to read his story, and Ms Davis did not dissapoint.

Lana and Kalvin do not have an easy relationship and their story is full of drama and angst. This

First posted at Words Fueled by Love.

Being book 4 in the series, it's very hard to keep a review spoiler free. What I will say is that this book follows Kalvin, one of 7 of the Kennedy brothers. The order of their birth is Kaden, Keven, Kyler, Kalvin, Keanu, Kent and Keaton. Kalvin and Lana had a past that was vaguely elluded to in the first three books but what exactly that past entailed and how deep or real their relationship went actually is still a big mystery going in to book 4.

So far I've liked ever Kennedy boys book better than the last and this one was no different! This was by far my favorite book in the series. I tend to live a very drama free life (thank heavens!) so I like to get my dose of drama from books and keep it there! This book had just the right amount of it! Sometimes I think books can be over the top and ridiculously impossible.

Oh, how I do love those Kennedy boys! And despite Kyler Kennedy's permanent hold on my quivering, love-struck heart, I couldn’t have been more excited to finally get my hands on Kalvin and Lana’s story!!

While intrinsically different from the first 3 books in this series, author Siobhan Davis does not shy clear of the controversy that “Loving Kalvin” is likely to provoke. While I might take issue with certain aspects of this story, it has less to do with Lana’s false accusation and mor
