I gave Two of Hearts 3.5 Stars.

I’ve been a fan of Christina Lee’s new adult series therefore, I was intrigued to read something different in Two of Hearts, her adult contemporary romance.

Dakota has been left her father’s legacy following his death. Feeling pressure from all sides, Dakota has to find her inner strength and prove to everyone she is more than capable to follow in his footsteps.

Dakota will always be the one that got away to Shane. She didn’t ask him to stay and he didn’t offer. The result has been five long years of separation but when Shane returns home to support Dakota and her family, their chemistry is still alive and sizzling and Shane knows, this time there will be no walking away.

As with all Christina’s books, I love the extra element in the story, be it photography, art or raising awareness of important issues. In Two of Hearts it was all about the Native American culture, to some it might not be their thing but I found it interesting and it shed light on something I had no knowledge of before.

I was also pleasantly surprised by the mystery element to the story, although at times I felt it eclipsed the romance, I did enjoy piecing the events together along with Dakota and Shane.

Two of Hearts was a sweet second chance romance, for me, it took a while for the book to get off the starting block but by 45% my interest was piqued and I was eager for more of Shane and Dakota. It is an adult romance and that’s evident in the pacing and content of the story, go in with this in mind and you won’t be disappointed. ~Ava

: 3.75 stars--TWO OF HEARTS is a stand alone adult, contemporary romance storyline by Christina Lee. This is casino owner Dakota Nakos, and U.S. Marshal Shane Garrity’s storyline. Dakota and Shane were first introduced in Whisper to Me from Christina Lee’s new adult Between Breaths Series. TWO OF HEARTS is an adult storyline that advances the original premise five years. It is not a spin off but more of a look to the future.

Told from two first person points of view(Dakota and Shane) TWO OF HEARTS looks at a Native American community of casinos and resorts; the infighting, the competition, the threats from outside sources, and the feared disintegration of the Native communities. There are some generic references to the Native struggles to retain ownership of their lands and control of their casinos, and there is also a peek into the fears of an aboriginal peoples whose numbers are decimated by addiction and marrying outside of the community. TWO OF HEARTS is NOT a story about discrimination or bigotry against Native Americans but perhaps discrimination against those not born of Native blood. It is a fictional story about one particular Native community and their need to stand together and support one another when one of their tribal elders is murdered.

Dakota’s father was murdered leaving his wife and daughter in charge of the family owned Golden Arrow Casino. What ensues is a plot against both the casino and the Nakos family in the hopes of selling the business to another casino operator. Enter U.S. Marshal Shane Garrity-Dakota’s ex boyfriend and the man who stole her heart years before. Shane is on leave from the U.S.

HASH(0x95601438) out of 5 stars Nice jump to adult 7 May 2015
By Jenn Goetz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It's interesting to me that this is considered a standalone book when we've met these characters (and others) in another series of Lee's. I'm assuming it's because of the jump from New Adult to Adult? Anyway...

After the death of her father, Dakota Nakos finds herself running the casino he left behind. As if dealing with this loss wasn't enough, now it seems like the Native American community Dakota was raised in doesn't want her or her mother there anymore. Add that to her ex showing up, and Dakota is just thrown out of sorts. She feels like she's drowning and it's looking like the only way out is the boy from her past and she's not quite sure that's a road she wants to go down again.

When Shane finds out about Mr. Nakos death, he stops at nothing to get home. Not only was Mr. Nakos father to his best friend and the girl he loved, but Mr. Nakos was also like a father to Shane. Upon his arrival, he instantly notices that somethings not right. Tensions are high, but no one is talking. Shane decides he's sticking around to find out what's going on - and to finally figure out what's between him and Dakota.

I really like Lee's writing. She's an author that I warmed up to, having not been to impressed with the first book I read from her. In Two of Hearts, Lee ups the game by jumping into adult with these characters and also throws in a little mystery: who killed Mr. Nakos and why? The setting was also one I hadn't read before. Set on an Indian reservation in the Midwest, I enjoyed how this book placed emphasis on the importance of culture and family.

The chemistry between Dakota and Shane was clearly visible. The two share a past - his best friend is her older brother, not too mention the almost relationship they had. Their past actually lends itself to moving the plot forward instead of getting us stuck there. It's because Shane knew Dakota so well that he was able to anticipate her reactions and also investigate the murder of her father more indepthly. However, despite their obvious chemistry, there was a giant game of push and pull happening. Shane knew what he wanted and was going after it. Dakota had no clue what she wanted and even after she figured it out, still pulled away. She was very up and down with Shane, but it was believable given what her family was going through and the stress of owning a casino. I enjoyed both the drama and the romance of this book.

In my mind, this will always be grouped in with the Between Breaths series. I can't help it. My mind just associates it with that set. That's not a bad thing, though, as I thoroughly enjoyed that series.

HASH(0x9560148c) out of 5 stars Stole My Heart..... 5 May 2015
By Laurie Oh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have had May 5, 2015 circled on my calendar for several months. Not because of the obvious – Cinco de Mayo or Henry Cavill’s 32nd birthday, but for Christina Lee’s new release, Two of Hearts. What has me so excited is that this book is Christina’s first dip in the contemporary romance pool and it features Shane Garrity and Dakota Nakos, two supporting characters from her NA Between Breaths series. Set five years in the future, it opens at a very emotional event with Shane and Dakota in their most raw and vulnerable forms.

I knew that I would love this book, because of not only Christina’s writing, but it is a second chance romance – which happens to be one of my favorite tropes. But also, this is an amazing story about the strength of family, the power of community and the need to understand and respect cultures. Toss in a bit of suspense and mystery and you have a hands-down brilliant book.

I think that Dakota was a perfect portrait of a woman who was battered by loss and stood strong. Having Shane return and take an active role in her life didn’t weaken her in the least, he was the shoulder she could lean in to, the ears that would listen and an incredible place to land so that she was able to close her eyes and sleep.

I have loved each of the male characters in the Between Breaths series – they were swoony, broody boys. But Shane Garrity? Oh, he is all grown-up – all man. I loved that he was bossy, dominant and completely in love with his angel. I lost count of the number of times he stole my heart. Let alone made me reach for a cold beverage. Damn. Just damn.

Shane and Dakota’s chemistry was nothing short of molten. While I loved the “will they or won’t they” element of the story, I was dying for the “will they” and Christina Lee did not disappoint. Their love scenes will require potholders for your reading device. You’ve been warned.

But more important to me, was that this couple shared a love and respect for the Indian culture into which Dakota was born and Shane was steeped. We as the reader get a warts and all understanding of life in and around the “res”, as well as how the casino industry impacts their daily lives. It’s all done without pasteurizing all of those traditions that have been passed down through the generations. The skill and sensitivity in which Christina Lee navigates the difficult issues is once again a testament to her amazing heart.

Two of Hearts is another one of those books that I will go back and read again and again chapters because I simply want to hold on to the magic of this story for just a little bit longer. I want more of this world, more of the characters. I hope you will love this book as much as I did.

Laurie’s Rating: A night’s sky full of stars.

REVIEW:
Great second chance love story! Two of Hearts is a standalone book. Shane and Dakota were secondary characters in Between Breaths Series, but you don't have to read the series to enjoy this book. Two of Hearts is a well written love story that held my attention from start to finish. I loved the characters and fell in love with Shane, the sexy U.S. Marshall. There is some mystery and smoking hot romance. Go grab a copy and get lost in a great book. Christina Lee is an author that never disappoints.

HASH(0x95601c90) out of 5 stars A shocking death, a casino in turmoil, can two old flames find their way back to each other? 7 Oct. 2015
By Dark Faerie Tales - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: A shocking death, a casino in turmoil, can two old flames find their way back to each other?

Opening Sentence: “I inhaled a shaky breath as his coffin lowered into the solid ground.”

The Review:

Dakota is reeling from her father’s murder when she sees Shane at the funeral. She instantly remembers all of her feelings for him and tries to remain aloof. Two of Hearts is a romance but also a mystery. The mystery is Linden’s death and the turmoil that seems to spring up right away in the casino. Linden left the casino to his white wife Johanna and named his daughter Dakota as the operations manager. Shane and Dakota had a relationship five years in the past when they were in college, when faced with future choices Dakota choose to take a break and Shane just went along with it.

Johanna and Dakota are under pressure from the Casino Association to sell their casino, and Johanna’s motives come under fire because of rumors. Meanwhile, Shane and his team are investigating what is going with the casino and who is behind Linden’s death. After several attempts to avoid him, Dakota begins to fall back into a relationship with Shane. As Dakota continues to fight for the casino and what her father wanted, Shane and Dakota fall deeper and deeper into something!

That’s all I can say about what happens in the book without going into spoilers! This was a good book, I had a couple issues which I will go over, but I don’t want to focus on them too much because I really did enjoy Two of Hearts. In fact, I will get down to it right away, first I didn’t always like the interactions with Shane and Dakota, I kind of felt like everything was falling on her too much, she wanted the break, etc, etc, it didn’t last which is why I am not going to keep complaining about it. But my only real thought (which the author did address) was if he loved her so much why didn’t he open his mouth and say something when she wanted to take a break. Lastly, this was really more of a romance than mystery novel, which is fine, the author herself states this a romance, so it almost felt like the mystery was thrown in and watered down. By that I mean, the romance was really the central part and the mystery was often in the background or kind of glossed over.

Those were my only bones to pick, if I say more than I just seem a little nit picky. Besides, I did love Shane’s and Dakota’s interactions once they got passed figuring who to blame for the break-up. He was a good guy who supported, and wanted to be an important part of her life. Dakota was a kick ass and take names kind of girl and together they were smoking hot! I loved loved loved the Native American aspects of the novel, from the viewpoints on the casinos and the realistic conflict over a white owner on reservation land. Kudos to Christina Lee for her research and really attempting to convey such a rich culture in a wonderful light. I was a little shocked but not completely surprised by who was behind the turmoil and the murder of her father, so if you really like thrillers and mysteries you might find this one falls short in that aspect! For the romance genre it definitely hits home!

Notable Scene:

“In the sound of the wind, the melody of the crickets, and the brilliance of the sunset.”

“In the past five years I had placed my feelings for him in a nice little box and thrown them overboard into the vast darkness of my heart.”

“The same pride that would continue eating me alive, leave me bereft and alone.”

FTC Advisory: Signet/Penguin provided me with a copy of Two of Hearts. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review.
HASH(0x95601d74) out of 5 stars Anticlimactic and predictable. Kai was the best part of the story. 6 Aug. 2015
By Melissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Whisper To Me was the first book I happened to pick up in the Between Breaths series and I fell hard for Kai. Knowing this was his sister's book, I was looking forward to diving in. Dakota and Shane's story is one of second chances and not being afraid to go after what you want, or I should say who. There is a strong sense of family, friendship and Indian customs throughout this story that really tie the characters together and add meaning to the story.

The circumstances aren't ideal, but the death of Kai and Dakota's father has brought Shane back home. It's a chance for him to take a much needed breather, be there to support his best friends and get his head back in the game. The endless travel as a U.S. Marshall has left him burnt-out, lonely and questioning his future.

Being back around Dakota doesn't make things any easier. Five years ago, in their senior year of college, their friendship turned into something much more. For some reason, neither of them fought to make things work. They simply parted ways, with differing career goals as an excuse.

That didn't mean their feelings for one another stopped though. Dakota is under a lot of pressure running the family casino and Shane is the only one that can provide any relief. He's grown into a strong, protective guy, that can be bossy at times. Which, I found sexy.

"I wanted you so damn bad, I had the taste of you, the smell of you, the feel of you on my skin for years. Only you. Nobody even came close."

I liked the history between Dakota and Shane. That they both took time to figure themselves out, let their ambitions lead them and still somehow found their way back to one another. Knowing that Dakota's father and Shane had a special relationship really cemented Shane and Dakota's connection even more in my eyes.

Without a doubt, my favorite part was getting to see more of Kai and Rachel and how far they've come. He will always have a special place in my heart.

What I didn't enjoy was the how the story concluded. There was a buildup throughout that I felt wrapped up too easily. It was pretty anticlimactic and predictable.
