“I feel a little deflated after reading it, I set my sights too high and I was inevitably a bit disappointed” ~ Under the Covers

Chuito and Alaine have been neighbours and friends for years, and in love with each other for almost the same amount of time. But Chuito has a violent and dark past; a past that he can never escape. His time in Garnet, with Alaine, is just temporary pilgrimage from his real life in Miami. He refuses to drag Alaine, the preachers daughter, down with him, so no matter how he feels, he is determined that their relationship remain platonic; even if he has to live off cold showers. However, Alaine isn’t ready to give up the man she has loved for almost 5 years and she isn’t going to give him up without a fight.

This is the second book in the Untamed Hearts series, a spin off from Kele Moon’s Shattered Hearts series. It’s also the installment I have been looking forward to since I first saw Alaine and Chu together many books ago in the Shattered Hearts series. So as you can see, it has been a long time coming. Maybe that’s why I feel a little deflated after reading it, I set my sights too high and I was inevitably a bit disappointed.

That isn’t to say I didn’t enjoy reading The Slayer, I did but I found Alaine and Chu finally getting together a bit anticlimactic. Although, there were definitely some climaxes going round, Chu certainly knew his way around the bedroom! I just found myself losing interest in Alaine and Chu’s relationship fairly quickly, despite their history in the books of both the Hearts series; I just didn’t feel the connection with them I expected.

I found my attention was more diverted by Tino and Nova, Chu’s friends and part of the Italian Mafia, their intensity, big personalities and story line over shadowed the love story between Alaine and Chu. However, it has made me eager to read the next book to see where their story leads and meet the women who will be taking them on.

I did enjoy this book, despite the background of violence and drugs, the love story between Alaine and Chu is actually quite sweet. But what I liked more was seeing more Nova and Tino, especially with the way Kele Moon ended this book, it’s not quite a cliffhanger…barely.

About Kele Moon

A freckle-faced redhead born and raised in Hawaii, Kele Moon has always been a bit of a sore thumb and has come to enjoy the novelty of it. She thrives on pushing the envelope and finding ways to make the impossible work in her story telling. With a mad passion for romance, she adores the art of falling in love. The only rules she believes in is that, in love, there are no rules and true love knows no bounds.

So obsessed is she with the beauty of romance and the novelty of creating it, she’s lost in her own wonder world most of the time. Thankfully she married her own dark, handsome, brooding hero who has infinite patience for her airy ways and attempts to keep her grounded. When she leaves her keys in the refrigerator or her cell phone in the oven, he’s usually there to save her from herself. The two of them now reside in Florida with their three beautiful children, who make their lives both fun and challenging in equal parts—they wouldn’t have it any other way.

Thanks for the review, I want to try this series and I’ve tried to get my library to purchase but apparently Loose ID is not library friendly with their e-books.
