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.
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.
“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.” – Chuito Garcia
I have been waiting for more stories from Garnet for a while…and oh boy was this one a doozie!
Chuito and Alaine have been neighbors for five years, and completely in love with one another. The problem is that Chu thinks he is the darkness to Alaine’s light and doesn’t want to taint her. He wants her to be happy with a normal man, not a former gangbanger from Miami. One hot night leads to a crazy journey for both of them. The question isn’t if their love can survive, but if they can.
I have been waiting for a long time for this story, and it went much deeper than I expected it to go. I am not complaining! It was a roller coaster ride in the best way possible. I knew there was a big story here, but the scope was really big. This was so much more than Chu and Alaine’s story; it was a ginormous buildup to the stories of Tino and Nova. And oh man I cannot wait for those!!!!
Chu was not disappointing. He’s a quiet character in the other stories in this series, and seeing inside his head was awesome. He was fierce and sweet and soft and so badass, the perfect alpha male. I thought that Kele really transitioned the different POV’s in this book seamlessly. The story really flowed and this was definitely a book that I had a hard time putting down. My only complaint is that I now have to wait for Tino and Nova’s books. I feel I really must channel Veruca Salt from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory here and say “But I want it NOW!” Please Kele, if you have any love for your readers at all, don’t make up wait too long. 5 stars.
He swallowed hard, and his voice was still full of pain. “I just can’t. I shouldn’t even touch you.”
“You drink,” she pointed out. “You’re not addicted to that.”
“Alcohol is not my drug of choice. It’s the exact opposite of it.”
“I’m not cocaine,” she reminded him.
“That’s what you think?” He glanced at her over his shoulder, his dark gaze running over her for one long, hot moment until it stopped to rest on the pink lace of her bra.
“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.”
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 off 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 had 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.
