My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I expect that you already read Finding Kyler by now, if not, I suggest you read it first before diving into this one. This is the second book in The Kennedy Boys series. Finding Kyler left us a huge cliffhanger ending and Losing Kyler picked up exactly where Finding Kyler left off.
I don’t have any negative opinion about this book because I enjoyed it so much and it felt like I didn’t even waited for this sequel at all. As I’ve said, Losing Kyler immediately picked up where the first book ended and the emotional connection was instant. I remembered how I loved the first book! I couldn’t even choose which one I liked better because they were equally satisfying, both are equally addicting.
When Faye moved in with the Kennedys, she was quickly thrown into the family drama. The word “dysfunctional” is an understatement when it comes to this family. The Kennedy seems to be living in full, fat lies and after the revelations in this book, there’s no doubt that things will be more interesting in the next installment.
Faye is a strong girl and I liked her for being badass. She didn’t only fight her demons but she also do everything to protect the people she love. If only loving someone is easy. If only loving Kyler isn’t forbidden.
What I enjoyed mostly about this book is its ability to turn the story into something you didn’t expect. There were lots of twists and bombs along the way. There were plenty of complications, unforgivingly thrown, one after another. It was like the family is cursed and happily ever after isn’t a possibility. Just when you think you’d figured out something, you’ll be given another secret to unfold, another twist in the already twisted lives of the characters. The angst we loved in the first book is still there. The thrill of waiting and finding out whether your favorite characters will have a happy story or not was both exciting and agitating. There was no boring part for me and I think that was another reason why other readers loved this book too. It was sexy, angsty, twisted and sometimes overwhelming. There were a lot of things that happened in this one sequel alone and I bet there’s more coming in the next one.
Then there was Brad. Maybe seven good looking Kennedy brothers wasn’t enough so Siobhan added Brad into the limelight. I have to admit that giving Brad a lot of exposure made this book even more exciting to read. It was nice to have a decent guy thrown into the picture and knowing Brad will make you love his character. He’s a gentleman. The one that is easily taken for granted. You’ll love him.
Just like Finding Kyler, the ending of this book was another huge cliffhanger! I survived but Keeping Kyler couldn’t get here fast enough and I badly need the happily ever after!
If you loved The Royals and Fallen Crest and looking for another dose of family drama with hot dudes and badass female heroine, try this series and keep up with The Kennedys!
