In the context of his statement, and the scene in which it takes place, our MC Chain Alexander is a man that I believe many men would like to be like. Powerful, rich, good looking, great taste in women...he would appear to have it all.
He is a confident man who knows what he wants. In book one he comes across a little bullish and possesses the kind of self belief that would make people shrink in his presence.
What was clear that this high flyer has fallen completely for our other MC, Violet, and it's a roller coaster ride as the book reaches its close.
I think the series has to been view in the context that book one is really part one, so I was more excited at the prospect of a second book in the series rather than think the ending of #1 left me hanging. It did - but in a good way. There is nothing wrong with that.
The revelations about Chain unravel in a paced and measured way, ensuring we are gripped until the very end of the tale.
I would suggest that author Miss Kahele knows what her fans want, and she delivers here in spades.
I still find Violet a likeable, enjoyable character. She doesn't play hapless waif to Chain - she is a strong character, a woman that also knows what she wants.
The mature scenes are exactly that - from the opening pages Hidden Truths is brutal but utterly realistic.
Let's see where book three takes us!
This is such an enjoyable series I fully recommend reading Book #1. And I am now waiting again to see what is going to happen in the Chain and Violet story in book#3.
Chain comes across as a clever, self- made but arrogant man who has a tendency to outbursts of violence to anyone who hurts (or threatens ) those around him, which to me, does not come across as very mature. He makes up for this by his love of Violet who is a very likable character as are her 2 friends who come across as much more grown up in their words and actions.
Chain has a secret past which may have made him the way he is. Violet has a secure family background and despite having been attacked, to me, is not too cautious soon afterwards where the rest of us I feel would be looking over our shoulders and locking everything in sight!
There is also a feeling of quick reactions. Violet is adamant that she doesn’t want to get engaged. Next minute she is. Then they split for what appears to be no apparent reasons. So quick that I thought I had inadvertently skipped pages.
This is well written in parts (some very much so) that I feel it needs a good editor as it has all the makings of a good novel. Such a shame that there is not the consistency and that there are almost “gaps”.
3* as there is a good plot and it gets better as the plot unfolds but does require work.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an open and honest review
Violet is left struggling to regain control of her life after the attack at the end of the first book and she is also feeling guilty for not fully being able to fulfill chains needs in their relationship. Chain realizes that he loves Violet more then life itself and spends a great deal of time trying to convince her of that fact. Once he convinces her, the ugly secret he has been hiding from her, really from everyone, rears its ugly head and sends Chain reeling out of control. Fortunately, David comes to the rescue (best friend) and makes Chain pull his head out of his butt and deal with the daemons of his past.
I think I would have liked to see more of Chain dealing with his past, maybe just a chapter synopsis. Maybe how he dealt with it and maybe more even of Lonnie trying to hurt Violet, I thought it was Harrison the whole time. If you liked the original Violet Chain, read this. If you haven’t started the series yet, you will want to read it, great series so far. I can’t wait for Blu, Violet Chain #3.

“He squealed with excitement as he pushed the tray of rings closer to me. I glanced across the array of rings, and one caught my attention. A pale pink oval-shaped stone glittered in the middle, and two large diamonds sat on each side of it. I didn’t know why, but I just knew this was the one.”
That’s right ladies, I present to you, Chain Alexander! Chain by the way is an untiring advocate of marriage. He has been trying to get Violet to commit in a more permanent way.
Chain’s past however is troublesome; will his past destroy their relationship? Go to Amazon and purchase a copy of Hidden Truths, and you’ll find out. The story does contain some very mature, erotic, and steamy scenes. Very well-written I must say! I’d provide an excerpt, but this is a PG rated review. Well done, J. Kahele.
Author J. Kahele has formulated an eclectic mix of characters; each with a specific set of circumstances, and each must overcome life’s challenges while dealing with the complexities of being in a relationship. I found the story to be extremely well-written and enjoyable. I most certainly recommend this book, but only for mature readers. An easy 5 stars! Book 1 and 3 here I come!
What a fantastic series! I hope we get more, like maybe Violet's brothers finding a woman of their own?! Hint. Hint. Nudge. Nudge.
Violet is left struggling to regain control of her life after the attack and she is left with the guilt of not being able to give Chain what he wants. She knows he’s hurting too but they rarely talk about it because Chain doesn’t want to remind her of the pain that was inflicted on her.
Chain knows that he loves Violet and he spends a great deal of time and energy trying to convince her to marry him. Just as he finally gets her to agree, an ugly secret from his past comes back to haunt him and puts Violet in danger. Rather than admit his past and eliminate the power of his past, he removes his future. He disappears from Violet’s life and bans her from his office, breaking her heart. Fortunately, friends don’t let friends destroy their lives. David figures out enough of the pieces to force Chain to face his past and go after Violet to reconcile the past and the future.
I would have like to see a little bit more of the struggle and reconciliation between Chain and his past. Would have liked more development about Lonnie and how Chain gets her out of their lives and more about what she was doing to Violet. But on the same token, Jen did a very good job of not having the story side track and all those things that I’d like to hear more about could easily have taken the story off track and caused the reader to lose the impact of the story. So although, I would have liked a little more, the author, editors and everyone else involved in getting this book in my hands probably made the right decision.
Now, how long do you suppose I have to wait for book 3 because the prologue at the end of book 2 did nothing to help my patience?
