Blog Tour: Because of Kian by Sibylla Matilde

I know I’m twisted. Growing up in a perfectly well-adjusted home, I don’t really have an excuse. But no matter… I realize how messed up I am. And therapy can only do so much.

I pushed my boyfriend to violence, a violence he couldn't control. Sickly, I almost liked it. So I pushed him more. Before long, the pain outweighed the pleasure and the loss I sustained shattered me. So I ran. I’m now a bit shell-shocked harboring a lot of guilt. My boyfriend is now my ex and wants revenge. He wants me to pay for turning him into the monster he’s become. And I still have a deviant yearning that I don’t understand. My own monster inside… my own demon to battle.

I can’t get close to anyone. I can’t give in and scratch that itch. I can’t wreck someone else.

And now there is Kian… my rescuer on a dark, painful night. He sees through my pretense. He tries to pull me from my frightened isolation, to keep me from becoming a victim. He forces me to face my warped desires and shows me that pain doesn’t really have to truly hurt.

He wants to show me a way to serenity. But I am afraid… Will I ruin a good man?

Brynn left her boyfriend six months ago after a volatile and violent relationship with him.  One night she is leaving the local bar and her ex attacks her in the alleyway, almost knocking her out.  A man intervenes and helps her get away.  His name is Kian.


Kian has been watching Brynn for a few weeks now, ever since the night she walked passed him at the bar smelling  so good and looking all kinds of sexy. 


'I was beguiled by her soft voice and sweet, sad smile.  By the flicker of spirit in her sea green eyes.  I was fucked.' - Kian


He was drawn to her and has this overwhelming need to watch over her and keep her safe.  His intuition was right after he found her being attacked by her ex boyfriend.


These two develop a friendship after Kian offers to teach her some self defence skills at the gym he instructs at.  It isn’t long until these two develop more intimate feelings for each other and they can't resist their growing attraction


Kian introduces Brynn to a way of experiencing pleasure and pain, showing her how much he desires her.  Brynn always has the nagging feeling that it is all too good to be true and once he realises just how crazy she is he will leave her.


'I wasn't good for him.  For anyone.' - Brynn


This is a story about overcoming fear and realising your self worth.  There is a lot of crazy too but it is a sweet love story.


I give this 4 'hyper' stars

Sibylla Matilde grew up in the mountain valleys of Southwest Montana exploring the dusty Old West gold country on the back of a horse. She attended a two-room schoolhouse beginning in 1st grade & had the same teacher until she changed schools after 7th. Beginning at about age 12, Sibylla discovered historical romance, feeding off of work of Jude Deveraux & Lisa Kleypas. She loves a book that can make the reader run the gamut of emotions, from the sweet glow of new love to gut-wrenching heartache. She is a true romantic & always has stories floating around in her head, living in a fantasyland until she writes them down to free them.
Music is her emotional trigger. Growing up with a Wagnarian-loving mother, Sibylla was raised to treasure music that digs deep into the psyche, drawing out elation, sorrow, grief, desire. The soundtrack to her life includes many genres spanning centuries. She looooooooves Thirty Seconds to Mars (rather obsessively, actually... but, really, how can you NOT be crazy about this guy!? Jared Leto. Shhh. ) & pimps them out to all her friends through Spotify. She also delights in Met Opera HD broadcasts at her local movie theater & hopes (listening Met?) to someday see Diana Damrau reprise her role as Mozart’s Queen of the Night in Die Zauberflöte.
Sibylla lives with her husband and hero who saved her from her own calamitous, young-adult self. He makes her laugh daily, even when things are tough. He's proved to her that love really can heal a shattered soul. In 18 years, they have never had a fight, although argue regularly with their two teenage kids who have, unfortunately, inherited their father’s quick wit (unfortunate as it is a quick wit that Sibylla, herself, definitely does not possess – there is a reason she is a writer & not a stand-up comedian). They live a quiet life with their two weird little rescued Chiweenies. Wait… teenagers & little yap-dogs? OK, maybe not so quiet.
