To Chuito the apartment was a self-imposed prison for a lifetime of sins. To Alaine, the girl next door, it was salvation 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 into 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 is 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.


She’s the one drug he can’t give up…even if it destroys them both.



“It’s a new dance. I don’t know the steps.”

“No steps. You always need rules,” Chuito complained. “Just listen to the music. Close your eyes.”

“They’re closed. I’m listening.”

“Listen to the drums. That’s the part you listen to. Feel it.”

“I’m feeling it.”

“No. 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.” He jerked her tighter against him as he said it, forcing her breasts to crush

against his chest and her dress to ride higher up on her thighs. “Like you need me.”

Alaine sucked in a hard breath and ran her hand up from his shoulder to his neck. The lust made her languid against her will, and when he moved this time, she followed because she didn’t have a choice.

“You’re not supposed to think when you dance. Supposed to just feel. To move the way I tell you to move.” He ran his hand up her back, pushing at the center of it until she arched into him, allowing her head to fall back and forcing her hips tightly against his. “Yeah, like that.

Better. I step hard. You step—”

“Soft,” she finished for him.

“That’s right. Follow my hand. Hard, soft, together we fit.” He loosened his hold on her waist, and she stepped back to the beat and then allowed him to pull her into his arms again. They did it a few times, the push and pull, stepping away from the heat and moving back together like they needed each other to keep breathing. Then he pulled her to the right and stepped to the left at the same time. When he used his hold on her waist to force her back, she stepped so that her feet were between his. He fit the two of them back together like a puzzle piece again, with his leg pressed so intimately between her thighs it was making her ache. She arched her hips on instinct, and he hummed in approval. “Bueno, asi mismo. Move them like

God made you to move them. That’s good, mami.”

Before now, they’d been dancing salsa, not this hybrid, more sensual form of moving that felt like a guilty pleasure. The beat was the same, the steps were sometimes the same, but this was so much more intimate. A tease. A candy-coated sin that wasn’t a sin because it was labeled dancing instead.

Alaine loved it.

She let herself be completely soft in his arms, moving where he wanted her to move, because it felt so damn good to let go of everything else and just be with Chuito. All she had to do was feel the drums throbbing and listen to the erotic, lulling sound of a man singing in Spanish about dancing with his woman.

All night.

They danced until the sun came up.



I received an ARC of this book from As The Pages Turn in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

I loved The Viper. However, I was not prepared for how much I was going to love The Slayer. Marcos was a great hero who entertained me to no end. But Chuito? He was something else. Aside from him the Moretti brothers were amazing in this book.

I wasn’t really into Alaine at first. I mean, I didn’t think she had any business chasing after Chuito when she had no idea of even half the things that haunt him. I started liking her in the end. I also liked that Katie was also featured in this book.

This book was truly amazing. There’s the right mix of sex, action, and family. Chuito and Alaine’s scenes were hot. The scenes with Tino and Nova and everything that happened in that house in Miami were thrilling and action-packed. The scenes in Sofia’s house and when they went back to Garnett to say goodbye were touching.

The best thing that this book did for me was get me excited to read Tino’s book, which is the third book in the series. Tino was a great secondary character, and I can’t wait for him to find a woman of his own, preferably the dancer he loved and lost. I’m also excited for Nova’s book.

Untamed Hearts is really a series of untamed heroes whose lives of crime and passion are all hot and extreme. And when they fall for their women, you can just imagine how explosive their love stories are going to be. Kele Moon has given us a wonderful series to read and come back to any time we feel like reading wild, passionate heroes. I’m truly happy I got to read this book, and it definitely is something I’d recommend in a heartbeat.
