To Chuito the apartment was a self-imposed prison for a lifetime of sins.
To Alaine, the girl next door, it was salvation from her overbearing, religious father.
He was a devil.
She was an angel.
Two people who should’ve never met, let alone become friends, but it’s not until they give into the dangerous passion that’s been simmering under the surface for five years that things go to hell.
On the outside, Chuito ‘The Slayer’ Garcia is on top of the world. He’s successful. He’s wealthy. He's a champion MMA fighter surrounded by friends who support him, but they don’t know what he was before he came to Garnet.
Now his past is churning up demons he can’t ignore. Chuito knows he needs to go back to Miami to end it, but there's something holding him back, a single temptation he can't resist before leaving.
She’s the one drug he can’t give up…even if it destroys them both.
“To me you’re coke. Fine. Smooth. Perfectly white. Very bad for me, but so fucking sexy I don’t give a shit. It’s worth going down for.” – Chuito Garcia
“I’m an addict. You know that. Getting off the drugs has never changed that. If I—”
He swallowed hard, and his voice was still full of pain. “I just can’t. I shouldn’t even touch you.”
“You drink,” she pointed out. “You’re not addicted to that.”
“Alcohol is not my drug of choice. It’s the exact opposite of it.”
“I’m not cocaine,” she reminded him.
“That’s what you think?” He glanced at her over his shoulder, his dark gaze running over her for one long, hot moment until it stopped to rest on the pink lace of her bra.
“To me you’re coke. Fine. Smooth. Perfectly white. Very bad for me, but so fucking sexy I don’t give a shit. It’s worth going down for.”
If you've ever read any of Kele Moon's books I know you were just as excited as me to read the Slayer!
The little glances we had of Chuito in the Viper (Marco-Chuito's cousin's story) had me anxiously awaiting Chuito and Alaine's story. I couldn't wait to see how Kele wove this story to make us swoon over the dangerous gang leader. Once again I learned to never underestimate Kele. Swoon is an understatement! Chu had me hook, line, and sinker from the first chapter!
Raised on the tough streets of Miami, gang life seemed to be the only option Chu thought he had. Watching the streets claim more than one of his loved ones and then land his cousin, Marco, in prison Chu knew he had to leave and get away from this life of crime.
When Chu is approached by Clay to become the first pro fighter for their gym in Garnet, Chu sees it as a way out. He meets Alaine the first day in Garnet when he is introduced to his new neighbor.
Alaine is the daughter of the town preacher. Having fallen out of her father's good graces she is taken under Jule's wing.
Jule's offers her a place to live, a job at her law office, and is helping her get through law school. When Alaine meets Chu she sees there is so much more to this wounded, tattooed, Puerto Rican who calls her Mami << (cue swoon)
This is the love story of Chu and Alaine. They have so many obstacles in their way but can love conquer all?
This can be read as a stand alone but you would lose a lot of back story about the other people in the book.
