I so wanted this to be a five star read but it didn't quite make it for me. It doesn't really hold a candle to the Sins/Dirty books. It was far too tame for me. The first 40% or so I considered it quite slow in terms of storyline. I get that you have the introductions, meetings, getting to know one another but it didn't have that explosive aura I expected. I thought that perhaps Vincente Bernal would have that same "edge" that his father, Javi has, right from the get go. He's a different man sure, but I was disappointed that it wasn't there. Not initially anyway, that side to him didn't come into play until quite far into the book, even then it wasn't as brutal as it maybe could have been.
I wasn't absolutely swept away with Karina's writing from the start. It felt quite tentative, with a lot of inner dialogue repetitive. I didn't "feel" it until I got to that first intimate scene. Then it was "okay....here we go." Because if Karina Halle can write something really well then it's her intimacy. The descriptive writing there kind of knocked me off my feet. It was utterly immersive. That seemed to be a turning point for me - the writing was far better, like she got her stride back and boy she went at it full swing from there.Read more ›
Firstly, I have to mention the cover. Those eyes, that nonchalant look about him, the way he holds his cigarette between his lips. I’d write a review about the cover if that were ever possible! And then I met him. Whatever I happened to be doing, I couldn’t seem to shake off his image or persona since Vicente Bernal literally got under my skin. I wasn’t able to read the book in one sitting; nevertheless, it wasn’t for the want of trying. The author’s descriptive skills are quite incredible. This story is a tad darker than what she’s published thus far, and even though the intimate scenes are more sexually charged than usual, believe me. . . my observation is graphically understated, discovering how the two protagonists tick was so much more stimulating! The mere fact that their cultures are completely different made me wonder whether they’d be hindered by internal influences.
Violet McQueen is a good girl. Loving parents, she’s never wanted for anything. I was smitten with her curiosity which gets the better of her when she comes across something that wasn’t for her eyes. Her discovery doesn’t make sense but without realising it, she opens up a can of worms. Up until now, life’s been kind to her, even a tad boring for her liking. From here on in, her story speeds up at an unimaginable velocity. I don’t believe in coincidences and thankfully there weren’t any in this story. However, unbeknown to her, her family are in the eye of the ever-intriguing Vicente for reasons only he can explain. Who his victim will be is for you to find out too; and surprise, surprise. . . it wasn’t who I thought it would be! And why he’s on a path of vengeance has its own twists that just might bite him back.Read more ›
I was counting down the days to release day- and I was worried that maybe for me it wouldn't live up to the hype I'd created within myself- but I was so very wrong.
Karina has pulled it out of the bag with this one- it was fast paced, with superb characters and well written situations.
With dual point of view- it was great being in the head of both these interesting characters and seeing how their parents actions in the past affected the fates of their children.
But that being said- don't be scared to pick this up if you haven't read sins or dirty angels- you really don't need to know the back stories- but once you read Black hearts you really will want to know more!
I couldn't wait to read this book and it was just as fantastic as I'd hoped it would be. The cover is gorgeous and one of the best I've seen. Vicente and Violet live in separate worlds but ones which are, unbeknown to them, entwined and linked by secrets and lies. Vicente has only known truths but when he comes across some information from his father's past it sets in motion a chain of events which have consequences even he could not have anticipated. Vicente is an arrogant man, a dangerous man. Violet is sensitive and intuitive but not afraid of him and his growing feelings for her have him in turmoil. Should he press forward with his original plans, will the secrets of the past allow them to be together?
Nothing is quite what it seems.
I can hardly wait for the conclusion. There is more darkness and treachery to come, I just know it!
I have to add that it is not necessary to have read Ms Halle's previous books in order to enjoy this one. This duet story is a standalone and you can uncover the truths of the past along with the characters without having done so.
