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 th

Edited to add THIS disclaimer:


I'm not racist.

So don't get it twisted. So if you are one of those people who can't take harmless jokes that perhaps touch on race, this is not the review for you.

And perhaps I'm not the friend for you; because, while not racist, I have no filter. And I take pretty much nothing seriously, especially myself. So you shouldn't either.

Take me seriously, that is.

Just thought I'd throw that out there before I get anymore nastygrams.

His destiny always found him no matter how much he ran from it. As sure as Chuito knew the next breath would have to enter his lungs whether he wanted it to or not, he knew that Alaine couldn't be his forever.

Take a look at my shelves and you'll see that I simply don't hand out 5 stars to books I read. It really has to be incredibly written, grip me by the heart and keep me glued to the pages type of read to get me to 5 star something

I totally blame Kele Moon for sending me through the depths of book funk hell with The Slayer. This book was raw, gritty, violent and brimming with passion and sensuality.

I simply loved it.

Without a doubt, this book (and series) should be up there with the best. It was INTENSE and I feel like these characters are now a part of me. To put it simply, Kele Moon can write a sexy alpha male like no other and Chuito Garcia was fucking fantastic! I loved him soooo much <3

I am going to be blatantly forthcoming. I have developed a huge girl crush for Kele Moon. In all of the books I have read by her, she has given, she has laid out her heart and soul with no fear. I am in awe of how she has put together an epic group of characters and remained true to the way she intended without any false steps. It is a thing of beauty.

She has created an homage to different cultures... providing an understanding of all the re

It's no small secret I love me some Kele Moon...HARD! Especially her MM! But I've read most of her MF too! The Battered Hearts series.

Untamed Hearts....just as good! Why Kele is making us wait for-freaking-ever for Nova's book no one knows. So I had to settle for Chuito this go round. It was quite the hardship.

I have taken a few days to think about what I want to say in my review of The Slayer but even now I am still struggling to put into words just how frigging good this book is.

I can honestly say that I was not expecting to like Chu's book as much as I did...what a wonderful surprise!

The Slayer skips between past and present so past unanswered questions about Chu are filled in, and it made for some interesting reading.

Chu is an MMA world champion and former gangster. He has tried to leave that world behind, but it's never really been behind him, and no

4.5 Stars

Fabulous book! Besides being just slightly longer than I'd prefer, I adored the story. The over-arching plot was managed well ... however I felt like this book diverted from the primary couple and started focusing too strongly on the other characters.
The next book has been set up nicely & I look forward to seeing more of the Italian Enforcer in action ;)

Needless to say, I loved this one so much.
I dont even know where to start.

Lets start with Chu, he is so swoony..

Okay thats a big, fat lie, I want to lick more than his abs...

Moving on to Nova and Tino..

The bromace and banter..

The action..

I hope there will be more than just 2 more books in this series because..

Bottom line:

Thank you Kele Moon for giving us Chuito, and Tino.. and Nova

Chuito...that's all. Just Chuito.
Well, almost all. Holy bajeez, I'm so glad I read this book. I NEEDED it. Desperately. I needed a tough guy with a good heart who could badass with the badassest. And let me tell you, you have to wait for it, but Chu is an effing badass son of a bitch!! Don't let the guilt and the five year celibacy fool you. Revenge is his. I am a sucker for vengeance. It was HAD in this book!!

5 'MMA + gangbanger + mafia' stars

The Slayer is truly one of Kele Moon's best work to date. Not only it has romance, we also have the bromance, family, friendship and some mafiya action. With 495 pages, there isn't a dull moment. Chuito's story covered the 5 years he spent in Garnett up to his current predicament back in Miami, a clusterfuck that also involves the Moretti's family.

We first meet him in Star Crossed and ever since then he is one of the supporting character that can't be ignore. H

Positives first:

I love the bromance between Chu and Tino. They were hilarious together.

Sex was hot.

There were more emotions felt in this one and it was brutal!

First, it really kills me to give this less than 5 stars. I begged for months for an arc and I kinda feel like I'm letting the author down, but I have to go with my gut and I have to be honest. I'm super picky and what I didn't like about this book will prob go over just fine with everyone else. I'll spoiler tag the s

WOW!! I had heard this book was amazing but I wasn't prepared for how good it was going to be. I laughed, I cried, I didn't want it to end.

Since the previous series, I've been intrigued by Chu. He has a dark past that has him laying low in a small town far away from his hometown of Miami. While hanging out in this town training and MMA fighting he friends his neighbor, Alaine. She's the good girl.

A gangster and a minister's daughter. Of course! the irony isn't lost upon me.

I first met Chuito in Viper, he was such a conundrum, the missing piece to the entire puzzle. Finally, I got my hands on The Slayer and I was blown away by the intensity and sheer ferociousness of Chuito's character. He is a dynamic lead character. I can simply say his story is the perfect meaning of Hamartia (yes yes, I learnt a new word from a recently read book). Pure unad

“I’d rather be in hell with you than anywhere else without you.”

Kele Moon is by far one of my favorite authors. Her strong characters, descriptive writing, and well developed story lines keep me engaged from the very first page to the very last. The Slayer did not disappoint! Although it can be read as a stand a lone, I highly recommend reading Crossing the Line and The Viper before reading The Slayer.

We first meet Chuito and Alaine in The Viper (which I fucking LOVED). Chuito was an asshole and I couldn't wait to read his story and watch him get taken down by a woman. This book starts in the present but flip flops through past and present to give us a real insight of Chuito and Aliaine's relationship.

Ay Dios mio ~ Chuito was just so guilt ridden and haunted by his past he couldn't see himself nor allow anyone else to see him as anything other than tainted and no good!! when really he was just so loyal and protective of those he loved and respected he always took matters into his own hands and handled things the only way he knew how... with brutal violence!

“Alaine frowned at him for a moment. "Are you asking me if I need feminine products?"

"I'm telling you to plan ahead," Nova said with a deliberate look at her. "Anything you think you're gonna need, I'll pick up."

"Wow"-Alaine pulled back in surprise- "I'm sort of impressed right now. You ARE a progressive gangster."
