In the UNTAMED HEARTS series we meet the younger characters from Battered Hearts, Chuito, Tino and Nova.
Untamed Hearts is a wilder, darker, more violent series.
All three of the heroes are criminals in one way or another .
The Slayer should not be read as a Standalone. To garner the most out of this series we recommend reading them in order and also recommend reading Star Crossed and Crossing the Line – Books 2 and 3 from the BATTERED HEARTS series as characters and stories overlap.

“To me you’re coke. Fine. Smooth. Perfectly white. Very bad for me, but so fucking sexy I don’t give a shit. It’s worth going down for.”
This was quite the grand impressive read, so much happened and we spent time with all the characters from the Battered Hearts series, which we loved, as well as getting excited about what’s to come from hereon in with our Italian contingent.
“He’s my love story.”
First though we have to say we absolutely loved Alaine and Chu’s love story, because ultimately that is what this was. Set in violence, revenge and family loyalty. This is pure classic Kele Moon, the Author we fell in love with many years ago. We cried an abundance of tears – laughed till our cheeks hurt and got completely caught up in the intense passion. To be honest, by the time we’d finished it felt as if we too had gone through a few rounds in the cage with Chu.
“I was born un diablo, and I’m gonna die one. Devils don’t change; just like angels don’t change. You shouldn’t be in my bed, Mami.”
We loved Alaine, the sweet no nonsense and fierce beauty who has such a huge heart and loves with her very being. No wonder Chu was hesitant to act on his love for her in any other way but friendship, after all, he believes himself to be the Devil and bringing her into his gangster life would taint her pure heart and place her in a position of danger he doesn’t want for her.
‘Gangster tears weren’t ordinary tears. The cut had to be deeper than bone, a hurt that made motherfuckers unrepentant murderers. It ripped open souls and bled out humanity.’
We absolutely loved Chuito; the tattooed bad arsed MMA fighter with a horrific and tragic past still playing into the now. Besides the hard fighting persona of Chuito he had such a beautiful heart and when he does romance it’s the kind that melts you into a puddle on the floor. All we’ll say here is the dancing scenes!!
“Just listen to the music. Close your eyes. Listen to the drums. Feel it. Feel it like a heartbeat. Like life. You want it to be a love song, hear the sex in it. Hold me like I hold you. Like you need me.”
We can’t fault how Kele Moon brought this love story to light. The depth and attention to every detail and emotion was flawless. A perfect balance of harrowing emotion, laughter, pure romance and heat inducing freezer time. When we say Kele brought it all we mean, she brought it ALL!!!
‘She felt like his salvation, like the angel he always thought of her as, but he fucked her like a devil anyway.’
We cannot recommend her Battered Heart series highly enough which is the best place to start to get to personally meet all the characters; then move onto The Untamed Hearts series. You’ll be in for an epic journey of magnificent emotional magnitude. We can’t wait for more to come with Tino and … sigh…. Nova!!! These two mafia hard-men brought an electric passion yes at the same time as having us in fits of laughter. Perfect combo if you ask us!
“Join our sinners’ party. Come sit.”
