Review: Forsaking Gray (The Colloway Brothers) by K.L. Kreig

Publication date: August 24 2015
Series and book number: 1
Rating: 5 stars

Official blurb:

When does hiding the truth to protect someone you love turn into deception?
When does your unwavering trust turn into the ultimate betrayal?
When is the truth more than it appears to be on the surface?
Within less than twenty-four hours of proposing to the love of his life, she disappeared. No note. No trace. No explanation. Nothing. Now, five years later, she’s resurfaced and Gray will stop at nothing to make Livia his again. But is love enough to forgive an unforgivable wrong?
Livia ~ I had less than sixty seconds to make a decision that would forever change my life and those of the ones I loved.
I sacrificed.
I suffered.
I survived.
And no one must ever discover my shameful secret, especially him.
Gray ~ I had dreams of a future with the woman who breathed the very life into my soul.
I was betrayed.
I was abandoned.
I was lost.
Now that she’s back, can I find it within myself to leave the past in the past and forgive so we can move forward and have the life I’d imagined?

When I starting reading this book, I was surprised at how addicting and interesting it was. And that was just from reading the prologue. I had no clue what was going on, what would happen, and I found myself reading faster just to get some idea of what was going on. Going into chapter one, I found myself thinking, WOW, this is a really great read. It held my attention, kept me guessing, and when I finally read more and more, I didn’t want it to end.

Livia has had a rough life. I instantly wanted to take her out of the book world and pat her on the back at surviving all she did. She came out of it stronger and at times I wanted to shake her because she felt some things that I didn’t want her to. She did what she had to do, and for that, I thought she was very selfless. She didn’t do it for anything other than to protect her family.

Now Gray, I felt horrible for him as well. He went through just as much pain and suffering as Livia did, just in a different way. Gray is a total alpha male and he stops at nothing to get what he wants. But, when these two are together, holy hotness!! Even though they both went through a horrible time and things happened for a long time with both of them, they never ever stopped loving each other. They completed each other and I wanted them to get over their past and move forward.

This is where I wanted to shake Gray. I couldn’t believe how mad I got at him for not understanding, and being there for Livia when she needed him the most. Granted I know he had some problems to deal with on his own, but at the same time, I was like COME ON GRAY! I remember shaking my head, and one time I had to walk away for a moment. This is what made this book amazing. When an author can bring out all kinds of emotions from you, you know it was a great read. I loved this book. I want to re-read it already it was so great! I really wish this author would publish another, just so I can read more! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and I highly recommend reading this!
