Condemned to repeat the sins of the past…
Faye thought losing her parents was the most devastating thing to happen to her, but she was wrong. Her uncle’s scandalous revelation has sent her into a tailspin, leaving her questioning her entire existence.
Everything she believed is built on a lie.
And the one person she shares a passionate, soul-deep connection with can’t be there for her.
Faye and Ky can’t be together. It’s forbidden. Though they are determined to avoid replicating their parents’ mistakes, caving to their feelings is as tempting as the apple in the Garden of Eden.
Ky had sworn off girls until Faye bulldozed her way into his life. Now, she’s his whole world, and their forced separation is crushing him. Once his manipulative ex resurfaces—hellbent on ruining the Kennedys—he’ll do whatever it takes to protect his loved ones including turning his back on the one person he can’t live without.
Then tragedy strikes and all bets are off.
But is it too late?
When Faye needs him and he isn’t there for her, guilt and hurt threaten to obliterate their love. As they start to rebuild their fractured hearts, another sordid family secret is uncovered, and Faye worries Ky may be lost to her forever.
But can you truly lose someone if they don’t want to be found?

I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of Losing Kyler provided by Lola's Blog Tours and Author Siobhan Davis. Thank you so much for introducing me to the Kennedy Boys!
After that cliffhanger in the first book, I dived into the sequel on the same day it arrived on my kindle. The need to know how the story unfolds was so strong, I dropped everything I had planned for the day and cleared my schedule for a full night of reading - that's how captivating Siobhan Davis' works are.
She is the queen of sci-fi and cliffhangers but she conquered the world of contemporary romance by bringing something new to the table. The Kennedys come in a package of feck up family drama (that's an understatement, the plot twists fried my brain!), bad boy allure and a whole lot of loyalty and bromance. I haven't read anything as twisted since Paper Princess and I.Loved.Every.Second.Of.It.
I am impressed at how Siobhan could throw in a plot twist so effortlessly, just when the readers were occupied with the current events, she threw another curveball that caught all of us blindsided. The pent up frustration and anguish over Faye and Kyler's situation often left me breathless and fighting the urge to throw my kindle to the wall, and then there's the whole ordeal between James and Alex. The entire family was built on a foundation of deceit and lies, it's a wonder that the Kennedy's still remained loyal to each other at times of distress.
There were so many dramas happening at the same time, there never was a boring moment in the book! The chemistry between Faye and Kyler is electrifying and I am head over heels in love with Brad, his scenes were the ones I look forward to and can I just say, perfect boyfriend material? Siobhan is a genius when it comes to characterization and I am jumping up and down waiting for Kal and Lana's story (especially after what went down between them). Seems like I'm in a constant mode of NEEDING when it comes to this series.
Leave it to Siobhan for another cliffhanger ending, I should be used to it by now *ha! as if!*, so much for wishful thinking.
P.S. If you're a fan of Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma and The Royals series by Erin Watt, this is a must-read series that will captivate your heart.
