Star Crossed by Kele Moon
Kele Moon has done it again with the second installment in the Battered Hearts Series, Star Crossed. This series has got to be one for the history books! The hero and heroine, with all their twist and turns, plots and sub plots, plus the characters from the fist book, give this title everything it needs. I love that the second book has all the characters from the series we have grown to love and introduces need characters to the mix. The trials and tribulations that the characters face have an interesting twist that will leave you wanting more. I can not wait for the next installment; it will definitely be on preorder!
Heavyweight MMA fighter, Romeo Wellings comes from the hard streets of New York where his family ties to the mafia cause him nothing but pain. His life takes a surprising detour when he crosses paths with the twin sister of his long time enemy. After a steamy one-night stand, he faces the fight of his life, but it’s not in the cage. The secret relationship that blooms between Romeo and his real life Juliet has him battling his family and a dark past rather than let her go.
The only lawyer in her hometown of Garnet, Jules Conner is also a volunteer Sheriff’s deputy and co-owner of a successful MMA training center. Strong and dependable, Jules is always there for those who need her. Until one forbidden night in Las Vegas with Romeo leaves her feeling so alive she can’t stop reaching out to the sexy, bad boy of MMA, even knowing the forbidden love affair could jeopardize everything.
As the tide rises against them and the people they love work at keeping them apart, Romeo and Jules hold onto a dream for a better life together and vow to go down fighting rather than accept a tragic ending.
