Forsaking Gray (The Calloway Brothers #1)
Book 2 in the The Colloway Brothers series. Each book can be read as a standalone.
When does our past stop picking at our scars and start letting them heal?
Can we see beyond our wounds to the possibilities the future holds?
How do we let ourselves become vulnerable enough to trust the love that’s right in front of us?
Fate. She’s a fickle, wily bitch that slaps us in the face every opportunity she gets. Sometimes it’s a taunt, but sometimes it’s a goddamn wake-up call to pay attention. Take what’s rightfully yours without shame or apology. So when destiny put me straight in Alyse Kingsley’s path once again, I knew this was one slap I wasn’t ignoring. I’d let her get away once. I wouldn’t again. She was mine and I was takin’ her, kicking and screaming if need be.
Alyse ~ Deceit and betrayal. Every single person who was supposed to love me committed one of these.
Incapable of letting people see the real me, I hold them at arm’s length. But Asher Colloway is relentless and it doesn’t take long before I cave to his pursuits. The big question is: can I let him in where it counts most? Before ghosts from my past come back to haunt me in ways I can’t possibly fathom? Before it’s too late?
Asher ~ Trust. Forgiveness. Impossible concepts, having been fucked over by a woman I’d loved before. But those aren’t my only personality flaws.
I have a secret kink.
I want Alyse. All of her. She shows people the shiny, untainted surface. I want the murky, damaged depth. The shadows. I want in all the way. Just when I think I’ve made it, fate cruelly bitch-slaps me again. And this time I don’t see it coming. The question now is: what am I willing to do to keep the woman I love by my side? And can Alyse accept me the way I am, faults and all?
I’m feeling a little bit of awe and a whole lot of love right now. Asher is PERFECTION. Let the alpha male wash over you, ladies. His growly demands will leave you weak in the knees and even his sad attempts to rein in his jealousy left me swooning. However what will have you pushing your thighs together to try to alleviate your sudden need is Asher’s instant vulnerability and heartstopping devotion.
Oh hi, I’m in love with Asher Calloway.
Alsye is also in the book. In fact, she’s a huge part of the book. And I really really liked her a lot. She’s funny and smart, but she can’t help but feel that everyone is leaving her. I mean, she went through an awful tragedy when she was eighteen – one that would shape the rest of her life – and that one moment tore open every wound of abandonment that she ever picked at.
Years later, Alyse has managed to create a fantastic life for herself. She has her own company and she’s determined to make it – on her own. But when Asher steps back into her personal bubble she’s not sure if she can even speak. He washes away every thought in her head and lights her body on fire. But Asher has always been a manwhore – and Alyse is not interested in being a notch on his bedpost.
Alyse and Asher together will get you so drunk on lust you’ll need to join AA. Those scenes are out of control hot and insatiably delicious. KL Kreig can write fucking. She can also fucking write. I adored this book from start to finish and devoured each word like it was going to be the last.
AND THEN THAT TWIST. holyfuckingshit. I mean, holy Jesus fuck. I mean. ugh. ok. I don’t have a phrase to describe it that doesn’t end in a string of expletives. As far as twists and turns, this one will hold you to the burner while you watch Alyse’s life simultaneously explode in joy and implode in fear. That smart and sassy girl just has to hold on to her secrets until she’s risking everything she’s so desperate to protect.
Erotic, sensual, romantic, sweet, AND OH SO DIRTY. Undeniably Asher is undeniably fantastic. 5 stars!
