Finding Kyler was a book which surprised me due to its depth of the story and Faye's new life living with her Uncle and 7 cousins after the death of her parents. Furthermore, being uprooted from Ireland was something Faye never expected to do and went through great lengths to get used to her new life. I admired Faye's tenacity in staying true to herself and finding love in such a precarious situation.
Will definitely be reading Book 2!
Faye Donovan’s life has been turned upside-down. Having to move from Ireland to the other side of the world to her previously unknown uncle’s home in America with his seven intense and odd sons after her parent’s tragic car accident isn’t an easy adjustment. Especially not when one of her cousins frustrates her as much as he gives her heart palpitations, and there’s more to him than the rude and sullen façade he shows to the world which makes him even more irresistible to crack especially when he keeps everyone at arm’s length.
After his best friend and girlfriend’s betrayal, Kyler Kennedy has very little interest in getting into a relationship and is more focused on his motorcycle racing but when his off-limits cousin takes residence at this parent’s mansion and his mind and under his skin it’s hard to keep her at bay no matter how much he tries. And although a relationship with his cousin isn’t against the law, it’d still be frowned upon so keeping it under wraps seems the way to go. Can they find a way to be together or will family secrets keep them apart?
Oh boy, where to begin? There’s a reason I don’t read much YA, mainly because I’m not into all the teen angst and drama, but when I read that Siobhan Davis was writing a series in this genre similar to Rachel Van Dyken and Abbi Glines, I just couldn’t resist and I glad I didn’t. This story is executed with skill and an allure that kept me biting my nails and flipping pages well past my bedtime.
“When Ky decides to let someone in, she’s going to be the luckiest girl in the world, because this boy has a huge heart, and he’s capable of enormous feats when it comes to the ones he loves.
Even though I had a trouble with the cousin issue throughout the book, I do believe these aren’t just beautiful words randomly strung together. There’s a method to every accomplished writer’s madness that will take the reader in an addicting and unputdownable journey. I trust Siobhan’s cleverness to do just that. So having said that, I think Finding Kyler is a wonderful read, the pacing is perfect, the characters are well developed and the plot is moving.
Not only are Faye and Kyler complex and well layered all of the supporting characters are appealingly flawed and fascinating in their own unique way, even the bad “guys” who cause heartache and commotion. I loved reading all about all the Kennedy brothers whose names all start with K and I would’ve have confused if not for the chart the author provided at the beginning of the book. Siobhan gave every single one an interesting back story I can’t wait to read about in the coming books.
But the brothers aren’t the only characters that help build the story, there’s the Kennedy heads of family which have their own subplot, the cook’s daughter who is in love with one of the Kennedy boys but of course she can’t act on it because they’re not of the same social class, Kyler’s ex-best friend Brad and of course the mean girls.
Even though there are a good number of secondary characters and subplots, the hero and heroine are always at the forefront. Faye is a strong young woman who knows herself and isn’t afraid to express herself and just trying to find her place in her new life. Kyler, well… he’s somewhat lost his way, hence the book’s title. He was wishy-washy when it came to Faye being at times mean and then sweet, nice and thoughtful to her, but I couldn’t blame him, it was pretty much par for the course. Besides the fact that he’s part of a pretty dysfunctional family and has been hurt by love before, she’s off-limits! So they have their ups and downs, but as like knows like, they recognize a kindred spirit in each other which helps them connect on a deeper level.
Finding Kyler is book 1 in young adult The Kennedy Boys Series by Siobhan Davis. It’s written from the heroine’s points of view with an “I never saw that coming” shocking cliffhanger. I recommend it for readers that like emotional roller coaster teen drama and angst.
