Book Review: Finding Kyler (#1 The Kennedy Boys)

Title: Finding Kyler (#1 The Kennedy Boys)

Author: Siobhan Davis

Genre: New Adult Romance

Release Date: January 2, 2017


Two fractured hearts and a forbidden love they can’t deny.

You shouldn’t want what you can’t have…

Faye Donovan has lost everything. After her parent’s tragic death, she’s whisked away from her home in Ireland when an unknown uncle surfaces as her new guardian.

Dropped smack-dab into the All-American dream, Faye should feel grateful. Except living with her wealthy uncle, his fashion-empire-owning wife, and their seven screwed-up sons is quickly turning into a nightmare—especially when certain inappropriate feelings arise.

Kyler Kennedy makes her head hurt and her heart race, but he’s her cousin.

He’s off limits.

And he’s not exactly welcoming—Kyler is ignorant, moody, and downright cruel at times—but Faye sees behind the mask he wears, recognizing a kindred spirit.

Kyler has sworn off girls, yet Faye gets under his skin. The more he pushes her away, the more he’s drawn to her, but acting on those feelings risks a crap-ton of prejudice, and any whiff of scandal could damage the precious Kennedy brand.

Concealing their feelings seems like the only choice.

But when everyone has something to hide, a secret is a very dangerous thing.


Full of scandal, dysfunctional families, teen soap-opera-style angst and drama, secrets and lies, mean girls and catfights, lust and love, book one in the unputdownable Kennedy Boys series will have you flipping the pages’ way beyond bedtime!

Only recommended to readers aged 17+ due to mature content and language.


My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book... Just wow.

When I was approached to read and review this book, I barely skimmed the blurb, so I think that's why the whole "cousins getting it on" took me by surprise. To be honest, I'm glad I went into this book with a totally unbiased and open mind because Siobhan Davis pulled me in so quickly. The book felt a bit slow but towards the 30% mark, it picked up and I couldn't put it down until I finished the whole thing.

Faye loses her parents due to a drunk driver and basically overnight she discovers that she has an uncle who lives in America with his eight teenage sons... That would make my head spin as well. When she moves to America to live with her only living relative, she learns how different America is to Ireland. And the move leads Faye to fall for her cousin, Kyler.

This books was so enjoyable for me! I'm waiting for an ARC copy of the next book. I loved the writing style and the glimpse into so many characters' storylines. I am so glad I got the chance to review this book. I know you will not be disappointed! I'm rating this book 4 STARS out of 5 STARS. Go get it now!

I voluntarily reviewed an advance, complimentary copy of this book as supplied by the author’s assistant. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
