“[Christina Lee is] a very polished writer whose makes it easy to get into the character’s POV. I found the writing to be very eloquent and easy to read, making this book an easy one to devour.” ~ Under the Covers
Christina Lee has been on my radar for a very long time but I haven’t had the chance to read one of her books until now. TWO OF HEARTS is unique because it deals with modern Native American struggles that don’t get often showcased in romances too often. I liked the author’s take on the books and felt that they added something unique and interesting.
However the one thing that immediately stood out in Dakota and Shane’s story is Lee’s writing. She’s a very polished writer whose makes it easy to get into the character’s POV. I found the writing to be very eloquent and easy to read, making this book an easy one to devour.
Though this is more Contemporary than New Adult, Lee does make a lot of references to her NA series, Between Breaths. The story also bounces back between the hero and heroine’s first person POV but I think it fits wonderfully, especially with the amount of tension and history these two have with one another.
Shane is a very intense character. His time as a U.S. Marshal has hardened him, but there’s always this soft spot he had held for Dakota that doesn’t diminish when he comes to see her after her father dies. As struggles arise for Dakota, the last thing she needs is a dangerous distraction in Shane. So Shane must convince Dakota about giving them another shot, but this seems a lot harder than it really is, amping up the angst in a way that makes me think of young love. If you’re a fan of second chance romances, then this one is definitely one you need to check out. After reading and enjoying this first book by Christina Lee, then you be sure I’ll be checking out more of her work!

What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
