This book is gripping and real. Tumor's and Luz's journey triggers a gambit of emotions, a testament to the author's talent. Overall, this is a beautifully written, emotionally compelling and at times shocking tale of love and life with a gritty edge.
Can't wait to see more from Lea Bronsen!

Wonderful story about how a bad boy finds love and begins to heal. Tumor and Luz captured my heart and I was sad to say goodbye in the end. Lea Bronsen's story is moving and a definite winner. It's a must read.

Once in a great while a book comes your way that grabs you by the throat and won’t let go. The story of Tumor, a man of violence, unredeemable and unapologetic, and Luz. Luz is opposite of Tumor. She is compelled to save those lost souls which society looks down on. The interaction between these two is volcanic, and slowly you start to see that yes, even the most brutal of souls can be redeemed.
Gritty, violent and raw, this is a look at the underbelly of our society. The author pulls no punches

*The copy of this e-book was given to me in exchange for an honest review*

Reading a book such as this is generally a once in a life time experience. But what if you then go and read it three times in a course of a few weeks? To me, it was implausible to find such a book that would stay so strongly with me after the first reading and then not lose its intensity with the second one. Yet, rereading this one proved to be an enjoyable pastime.

Our story begins with a male protagonist Tomor, unique spe

I'm finding this to be a difficult review to write, because for me, the story was both beautiful and disturbing at the same time.

At the core is a beautiful love story between a rough and obnoxious gang leader, Tomor, and Luz, a self-conscious, naive girl from the other side of town. It was hard for me to understand their initial infatuation with each other, but it was there, and it began the torturous love story between the two.

I didn't really care for the character Luz and found myself wantin

"Wild Hearted" is a short, intense train ride of a novel that takes you effortlessly into it's story of a seemingly unredeemable inner-city crime lord and the woman he falls in love with. The pace is fast, and the characters colorful. More so than other romance fiction, "Wild Hearted" has a very dark, noir quality -- of gritty crime, tough inner-city neighborhoods, hurt people and broken does not soft-pedal this atmosphere to let the protagonists (Tomor and Luz) fall in love.

I don't remember what prompted me to get this book. I think the reviews were good... but I don't recommend it to any of my friends.

There's rape. There's blood and gore and violence. And there is no HEA. Like I said... I don't know why I thought I should read this. But I kind of kept going. I had to ask God to renew my mind after this one.

This wasn't for me.

This book was packed with lots of action and suspense. Tomor and Luz had a special connection. Larsen ended up being a trusted friend to both of them.

What a story. I'm just out of words... so strong story, so much violence, and love there between bad and ugly sides of life. I don't recommend this for everyone because this can be called dark. I love HEA:s but you don't always get what you want. Luckily, there's hope anyway. Lea, go on writing your breathtaking way, but please make more happines in your stories... then I could say it's just perfect. ;)

Olipa siinä kirja! Laittaa hiljaiseksi vähäksi aikaa, kun pohtii että mitä ihmettä juuri tuli

**First, I'd like to thank Ms. Leah for this copy**

I love the story! It's fresh and not boring. Definitely worth to read.

About the characters, I love them all!! I love Luz, she's feisty even though she was with Tomor (on the first part where she's with him and his gang). And Tomor! He's so intimidating. As I was reading the book, it feels like he's right beside me. The author really brought the characters to life and you can definitely feel t
