Review: The Slayer by Kele Moon
(Untamed Hearts #2)
To Chuito the apartment was a self-imposed prison for a lifetime of sins. To Alaine, the girl next door, it was salivation from her overbearing, religious father. He was a devil. She was an angel. Two people who should’ve never met, let alone become friends, but it’s not until they give in to the dangerous passion that’s been simmering under the surface for five years that things go to hell. On the outside, Chuito “The Slayer” Garcia in on top of the world. He’s successful. He’s wealthy. He’s a champion MMA fighter surrounded by friends who support him, but they don’t know what he was before he came to Garnet. A gangster. A thief. An addict. A murderer. Now his past is churning up demons he can’t ignore. Chuito knows he needs to go back to Miami to end it, but there’s something holding him back, a single temptation he can’t resist before leaving. Alaine. She’s the one drug he can’t give up…even if it destroys them both. “To me you’re coke. Fine. Smooth. Perfectly white. Very bad for me, but so sexy I don’t care. It’s worth going down for.” –Chuito Garcia
WOW!! I had heard this book was amazing but I wasn’t prepared for how good it was going to be. I laughed, I cried, I didn’t want it to end.
Since the previous series, I’ve been intrigued by Chu. He has a dark past that has him laying low in a small town far away from his hometown of Miami. While hanging out in this town training and MMA fighting he friends his neighbor, Alaine. She’s the good girl.
Their devil, angel storyline is hard to look away from. Their love story wasn’t meant to be but their chemistry can’t be denied.
I didn’t expect to get all mushy in this book. But my feelings for these two couldn’t be ignored. Such a powerful book. And how it ended… I MUST GO ON with this series. There’s so much more to come for all these characters.
THE SLAYER is the second book in Untamed Hearts series. This series is a spinoff series from the Battered Hearts series which is filled with UFC fighters. These are the younger guys we got to meet in that series. I’m looking forward to the next book because it’s Tino’s. He’s the Enforcer and seen as the fun-loving uncle and loyal brother. I can’t wait to see what his book has to offer.
