Cover Reveal: The Weight of Life by Whitney Barbetti


“Don’t let go.” Those were my first words to him, as I hung over the side of a London bridge. The words I would soon say again, in a moment that didn’t involve bridges, but something much more fragile: my heart.

He held onto me for three weeks, in a time when I needed to be held. Needed to connect to someone who understood how loss tunneled unrepentantly through the fabric of your soul.

Although he said he'd stay, we both knew he wouldn't. I had already survived one loss—I didn't know if I'd survive another. 


She spun into my life like a tornado of smiles and chatter and everything else I'd long avoided, with a persistence that I admired, albeit begrudgingly. She broke down each neat wall I’d constructed without even trying. Her presence alone caused me to remember what it felt like to smile, to look forward to what the day would bring.

But it was only supposed to last three weeks.

“Don’t let go,” she’d pleaded.

I’d promised her I wouldn’t—but I would. I didn't have a choice.

Release Blitz/Review: Found Underneath by K.L. Kreig

"KL Kreig nailed it! The perfect heart-stopping ending to a fantastic duet, Found Underneath is everything you hope it will be and so much more!" ~ KL Grayson, USA Today Bestselling Author
BK2 Found Underneath E-Book Cover.jpg
It began as a ruse.

Take a girlfriend. Divert the press from the fucked up mess that’s my family until my father is re-elected. Stage a public breakup. Move on.

Only that brilliant plan went straight south the moment I set eyes on Willow Blackwell.

I found her.

My center. My future. A soulmate with the will of a mule and the mouth of a harpy.

I now want things I never wanted before. Permanent kinds of things.

Only Fate—and her ex—have other plans for us.

In some sort of cosmic impossibility, our lives unknowingly intersected years before when tragedy befell both our families. Once the devastating truth is finally revealed, the future I’d found in her will come crashing down around us and for the first time in my life I’m completely helpless.

I may very well lose the only woman I've ever loved to a past neither of us saw coming.

*warning: 18+ only. Contains foul language, explicit sex and a hot alpha (or two, or three). NOTE: This is NOT a standalone. It’s the conclusion to LOST IN BETWEEN, which MUST be read first.

4/5 Stars 

WOW! Just wow!!  The conclusion for the Finding Me duet was absolutely perfect!  Found Underneath was a captivating read from start to finish.  I could not put this book down once I started it.  It was edgy and sexy as sin.  It took me on an unforgettable journey full of romance, mystery, suspense and secrets.  This book was flat out HOT!  K.L. Kreig knows how to write those steamy scenes with lovers.  She makes it where you feel so many emotions, because her writing is magic and it completely pulls you in for the ride. 

Character development was spot on!  Each character grew and changed in someway throughout this book/duet.  And that is what I loved most about this book.  The characters.  I fell in love with every single one of them.  Even the supporting characters took a piece of my heart.  What they went through was so realistic that my heartstrings were constantly pulled.  Everything felt so real and raw.  I was able to connect and relate with these characters in so many different ways. 

Willow is a strong and vulnerable woman.  After what happened to her father and sister, and her mother's sickness, she has closed herself off.  Put a steel wall around her heart.  She wants desperately to let Shaw in, but she constantly questions the trust between them.  They did get together in an unorthodox way so that is constantly sitting in the back of her head.  What happens once the contract ends? I felt her pain and struggles.  She is a beautiful person inside and out.  Very compassionate.  She is always there when someone needs her even though it is tough for her.  I loved how she was there for Annabelle when Annabelle needed her. 

Shaw is a force to be reckoned with.  Geesh!  This guy is so dominating and sexy as sin.  Powerful.  Shaw has changed so much!  He never did relationships and never thought the love he has for Willow existed.   He didn't know what he was looking for until Willow came into his life.  Now his heart is full of love and compassion for a woman he never seen coming.  But, now he lives in fear.  Fear of losing the one person that lights up his heart.  If his sister did have something to do with Charles Blackwell's death, then he could possibly lose Willow and Annabelle all at the same time.  I loved seeing his protective and nurturing side.  Even his jealousy came out several times!

Annabelle really grew on me throughout this book.  She has changed so much!  And with the second chance that she has been given, she decided to take her life into her own hands and get help.  I am really hoping to see more of her!  Noah has become one of my favorite characters!!!  I love this man so much!!  I definitely want to see more of him!!!  Really hoping he gets his story!  Deep down, I think he wants what Shaw and Willow has.  I love the connection that he and Sierra have.  Their times together are absolutely hilarious!  Reid was a character that I had mixed feelings for.  I felt so sorry for him, but he did some things he really shouldn't have.  But, I understand why he did it.  He was fighting for the one he loved. 

I loved Willow and Shaw's relationship.  It was as if they were made for each other.   Willow always had something snarky to say back to him, and he loved it. These two brought out the best in each other.  But, they both had something to fear.  Even though Shaw has never been in love like this before, he realizes his fear is nothing compared to Willow's. That she is her own worst enemy.  That he has to fight her for her heart.  Even though something was always there threatening to demolish their relationship, they both fought hard to keep a hold of each other's hand.

Found Underneath was beautifully written story that definitely left me wanting more.  Even though this is a duet, I am hoping that K.L. Kreig will bring back some of these characters and create a story of their own.  I fell in love with these characters in Lost in Between, but fell even harder for them in Found Underneath. I want more!!  This book had a lot of angst and suspense.  So many twists and secrets.  I was on the edge of my seat the entire time.  I loved how everything came together though.  And that ending! Wow!  Didn't suspect that with Randi!  I highly recommend this book/duet!!  It is a definite reread for me!!

Lost in Between

As a USA Today Bestselling author, I write stories that are deeply emotional with flawed characters, because humans ARE flawed and if we read about perfect characters living in their perfect world, first of all, snoozer, but secondly, we never experience the gratification of redemption.

Outside of writing, I’m just a regular ol’ Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It’s a vicous cycle. I love carbs, but there’s love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell…who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I’m a huge creature of habit, but I’ll tell you I’m flexible. I read every single day and if I don’t get a chance…watch the hell out. My iPad and me: BFFs. I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).
