"I don't care what it costs." - Chain Alexander, Hidden Truths

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 story literally starts where #book 1 ended, it was such a huge cliff hanger that I remember literally bouncing up and down just dyeing to know what happened, and i'm so pleased that this book started exactly where the last one had ended. This book is like a roller coaster of emotions and love, Chain and Violets story is great, I think I actually connect with it, as it's very similar to my own life. This has everything the up's and downs of a relationship the insecurities, the porky pies because you're thinking on the hoof and trying to keep up an image and expectations. I think this is why I enjoy these books so much is they are so real, all those emotions and feelings. One of the best thing about the way J.Kahele writes is that it has you cracking up with laughter, it's so fun and witty with laughable quotes and banter.

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.

The second book in the Violet Chain series. I read the first book not that long ago and my first thoughts on reading this were “I need a bit of a recap” as the story begins assuming you know (and remember!!) certain things about the characters. The main characters, fair enough, but could I remember someone thing about a subsidiary character. No! Ok moan over.
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

This is not a stand-alone novel; you should read the first book in the series first. In fact, if you read the first book a while ago, you should re-read it and then start this one. The author does not give you a real back story to get you caught up or remind you where we left off in the first book.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent writing! 6 Oct. 2016
By Nesly Clerge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I started a bit late with this series; I jumped straight to book two. However, reading the first book before the second is not necessary. Hidden Truths starts out with a bang! Violet was brutally attacked, and although I want to give a better description of what happened, you’ll simply have to read it to find out. But I digressed, Violet must now face the emotional turmoil of the attack, and her romantic relationship to Chain has suffered because of it. Chain Alexander, by the way, is the quintessential male figure: he is sensitive, considerate, and heedful. Why? You asked! Well, see the passage below:

“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!
5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Series! 16 Jan. 2016
By GG - Published on Amazon.com

There were so many twists and turns in this book. Just when I thought I knew where things were going with Violet and Chain, I got blindsided with another element. All of the inner workings of the story are woven together with precision, making this book addictive. I appreciate the way that difficult situations were presented and the reactions were real. Without giving anything away from the first book, I will just say that Chain was so supportive and patient. Once again, we got his perspective and for me, it added so much depth. He is definitely swoon worthy, not only because he's sexy as sin, he's got a sensitive side, too.
What a fantastic series! I hope we get more, like maybe Violet's brothers finding a woman of their own?! Hint. Hint. Nudge. Nudge.
5.0 out of 5 stars So emotional! 15 Mar. 2016

This book is almost impossible to put down and it is highly emotional! I can't wait to read the sequel... I am starting to know Chain so well now that I knew what the deal was, but I still loved him anyway. He and Violet are perfect together. A fun, fast-paced, emotional read!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great work! 31 Jan. 2016

As a big fan of J. Kahele’s work, this story as expected did not disappoint. The story pulls at your heart strings. I found myself actually rooting for Violet and Chain of them to make it. J. Kahele’s style improves with each book. Her characters evolutions are realistic and believable. J. Kahele manages to maintain the character's core traits while seamlessly and naturally showing their growth from the trials and tribulations they’ve faced. Well written with a strong plot, the series keeps you interested and entertained, and I can’t wait for the next installation to answer the questions and show how Violet and Chain relationship plays out. Five​ stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars second book is as good at the first! 18 Dec. 2015
By Floating Cloud of Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
First things first, I love this series but you absolutely need to read book 1 before you pick up book 2. I had read book 1 when it was released and felt like I should have reread it (at least the end of it) to be up to speed when I picked this book up. Now I will say the confusion didn’t last long and I quickly jumped right back into this story.

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?
