Title: The Slayer (Untamed Hearts, #2)
Author: Kele Moon
Genre: Erotic | Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 31, 2015
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
The Slayer completely exceeded my expectations! I’ll be honest, I had my doubts because I wasn’t the biggest fan of The Viper, but already then I was very intrigued by Chuito and Alaine. I was hooked from the first page and I cannot recommend The Slayer to you enough!
Alaine is a heroine that I would die to be friends with. She’s smart, empowered, independent, beautiful, loving and a little bit bossy – everything I aspire to be. I could understand all her emotions and I was rooting for her right from the beginning. Her chemistry with Chuito was undeniable. Chuito is a troubled soul, a little too stubborn. I definitely felt a strong connection to him and I thought that their journey together was beautiful and exciting.
But the relationships that absolutely stood out for me where the bromances. I LOVED IT SO MUCH. I genuinely laughed out loud during Tino’s and Chuito’s conversation. I don’t want to throw a shade at Alaine, but I truly believe that Tino is Chuito’s soulmate. Their relationship alone is a good enough reason to read this book, it’s been so long since I came across such a strong bonding between friends. Nova – Tino’s brother is also hilarious and his bossy one liners made me crack up several times. GO BUY THIS BOOK AND READ IMMEDIATELY.
This book had a perfect balance of suspense, action and romance. I couldn’t stop reading. I found myself breathless while following the adventures (or problems, accoring to Chuito) of Miami gangs and Italian mafia. I was so intrigued, maybe I found my inner gangster? 😉 I was a bit disappointed that not everything got resolved, now I need to wait for another 2 books. I have no idea how will I survive!
This was such a gem and I hope that more people will find this book and read it. The Slayer is definitely one of my favourites of 2015, so thank you Ms Moon! Read it and don’t forget to drop a comment!

“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.
