Finding KylerFinding Kyler (The Kennedy Boys #1)
by Siobhan Davis
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age category: Upper Young Adult
Release Date: January 9, 2017

Blurb:
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—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.

4.5 out of 5 stars

Finding Kyler is the first book in the Kennedy Boys series. It is also Siobhan Davis’ debut novel and it was impressive. With the amount of characters involved I thought I would get confused especially with all of the brothers’ names starting with the letter K. But surprisingly, with the family tree in the beginning of the book it really helped. This isn’t just Kyler and Faye’s story, this family is one for the books…

Faye only had her parents growing up and now they are gone. She was only a few months away from being an adult so she set her plan but that all changed when she found out that she has an uncle that her mother kept secret. She was now leaving her home of Ireland to Boston, Massachusetts to live with the family she never knew. This includes not only her uncle but his wife and their seven teenage boys. She was nervous but she knew she would adjust. Then she gets hit with the fact that they are The Kennedys. Of Kennedy Apparel. A multi-billion dollar fashion line. So she wasn’t only being thrown into a new world but it was going to be a wealthy one. One that she knows absolutely nothing about. She was told by her Uncle James that his family was excited about meeting their cousin but when she shows up, it’s not exactly with open arms especially when it comes to Her cousin Kyler. And when he warns her that she doesn’t belong with this fucked up family, she is shocked by his statement. He doesn’t want her there but from that moment, she felt something. Something she shouldn’t feel towards her cousin. Attraction.

Faye has been around drama but this is craziness. The family has their own issues. Each of the boys have their own personalities but they have one thing in common: they don’t respect their parents. They have their reasons. She doesn’t get it. Her uncle and aunt seem nice enough and their children don’t look like they are lacking for anything. She figures with having a successful empire and having seven children, it can cause some stress. Kyler warned her the family was fucked up but with each passing day, she starts to see why. She also discovers that her mom wasn’t always truthful.

Now…for the attraction to Kyler. He is an asshole. He also has a sweet side. He is a complex seventeen year old that she shouldn’t want. But her mind and body are not on the same page. Kyler also feels the attraction between them so it’s not just a confusing emotion for her. But, it’s forbidden. It’s not illegal but it would cause scandal towards the family. And The Kennedys have enough. Because of this attraction it causes them both happiness and hurt. And Kyler also has an ex-girlfriend that he has to deal with. And as soon as she meets Faye, she wants to ruin her. She feels threatened by the new girl. The drama is thick with these three.

Ok…I wasn’t sure how I would feel about the “kissing cousins” vibe but it didn’t bother me. Maybe it’s because I love a forbidden romance. It also helped that it was detailed in certain aspects of the relationship. I also think it was because they didn’t grow up together. They didn’t even know about one another. They could have been in a club and hooked up and never would have known until she met his parents of course. I found myself actually wanting them together.

I thought the book was addictive. I am in my mid-thirties but I have and still do watch a good share of teen dramas. I think that was why I was sucked in. With seven wealthy and good looking teenagers I knew there would be some drama and damn. I wanted to know what was going to happen next. I think Siobhan did an amazing job at keeping it interesting. I also liked that the boys are all different. Kalvin “the player” cracked me up with his over the top flirty ways. Keaton is the joker of the group but also very protective. Those two stood out the most to me, well besides Kyler but the others were there too.

Overall…it’s a great debut. It’s full of drama, love, scandal, dysfunction, secrets and lies. I will definitely be reading the next book.

Quotes:

“Don’t flatter yourself. You’re the first specimen of prime American A-hole I’ve seen. I wanted to memorize the form so I know what to avoid the next time.”

A reminder of all that is forbidden.

“Relax, Mary Sue.” He holds both hands up in the air. “I’ll be a good boy now. But make this snappy so I can attend to business.”
