Book Description

Genre: Erotic Contemporary
Series: Battered Hearts; Previous Book: Defying the Odds

Heavyweight UFC fighter, Romeo Wellings comes from the hard streets of New York where his family ties to the mafia cause him nothing but pain. His life takes a surprising detour when he crosses paths with the twin sister of his long-time enemy. After a steamy, one-night stand, he faces the fight of his life, but it’s not in the cage. The secret relationship that blooms between Romeo and his real life Juliet has him battling his family and a dark past rather than let her go.

The only lawyer in her hometown of Garnet, Jules Conner is also a volunteer Sheriff’s deputy and co-owner of a successful MMA training center. Strong and dependable, Jules is always there for those who need her. Until one forbidden night in Las Vegas with Romeo leaves her feeling so alive she can’t stop reaching out to the sexy, bad boy of the UFC, even knowing the forbidden love affair could jeopardize everything.

As the tide rises against them and the people they love work at keeping them apart, Romeo and Jules hold onto a dream for a better life together and vow to go down fighting rather than accept a tragic ending.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: violence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Star Crossed by Kele Moon July 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I have been a HUGE fan of Kele Moon ever since reading Defying The Odds, book #1 in the Battered Hearts series. That book is one of my favorites and I have reread it many times. I had been anxiously awaiting the release of Star Crossed, so when I was contacted by Kele to read and review an ARC copy, I could not have been more excited!! Thanks again Kele, it was my pleasure to read Star Crossed and I can't wait for Wyatt's book!!

I have been fortunate lately to read some outstanding books by some outstanding authors and it was to my great pleasure that this continued with Kele Moon and Star Crossed!! I loved everything about this book and it is exactly why my reading addiction continues to grow!! Star Crossed grabbed my attention from the beginning and held me captive until the end with an incredible heartwarming and touching story.

Romeo had me under his spell from practically his first words and I loved him and Jules together. And really, Romeo and Juliet how can you not love that!!! Romeo's brothers, Casanova and Valentino, added so much to the story and had such loving, tender, heart-wrenching, funny moments with Romeo that I was immediately drawn to them and I am hoping that they each get a book also. (hint, hint, Kele) Of course it was great to catch up with Clay and Melody and also Wyatt. Wyatt and Jules have such a great relationship--I love how their always fighting and griping at each other but because they are twins that special bond they share keeps them together. I just love Wyatt and his tortured soul, I just want to hug him!! He and Jules also have some great touching moments.

Now I can't write my review without saying something about the sex scenes. WOW...

I really enjoyed Defying the Odds and was eagerly awaiting the release of the second book in the Battered Hearts, Star Crossed.

The wait was worth it because this book was every bit enjoyable as Defying the Odds, but it had something more for me and the sequel was even better.

I've been itching to get time to read this all week and once I got the chance to do that I was gone, immersed in the story and spending time with Juliet, Romeo, Jules and the gang in Garnet.

The relationship between Jules and her brother Wyatt is just wonderful and I really do love the feeling I get when reading about them. Some of the dialogue between them really does make me chuckle, but they share such a deep bond that you actually feel through the pages.

Romeo and Juliet had chemistry in spades and these two really were made for each other. They fit together perfectly...physically and emotionally. I adored them.

Kele Moon can definitely write a good sex scene that's for sure and this book lived up to expectations. These two positively sizzled between the sheets....and everywhere else, including webcam ;)

I felt so connected to Juliet this it felt like I was sat down with her in Garnet just shooting the breeze. The dialect was so well written, that for me (even being Australian) I could here their voices and accents in my head, such is Kele's talent for taking you away and immersing you in the book and characters.

This was such an enjoyable read for me and I loved every minute.

I can't wait for Wyatt's book so I can once again take a trip to Garnet.

I would absolutely have no hesitation in recommending this book

What an awesome hero! If a hero touches me and really makes me care about his happiness; if he makes me care about whether he gets what he wants, if he gets his deepest desire, then I know I'm lucky to be reading one of those heroes and romances I won't soon forget. I loved Romeo, everything about him: the big city attitude, the NYC accent, his Italian-American family, his big, hunky 6'6 fighter's body, but most of all, that wounded soul of his. For all his anger, his rough edges and his ability to lay you flat with a punch, there is such a sweetness to his character.

Yes, Romeo is that growly, bruiser alpha male I love to read, but the author wrote his character with some nice depth and with a lot of tenderness. Romeo's a bad boy, but a good bad boy. When you're reading this story, you feel the vulnerability of his character. Along with all that manly strength, there is a sweet part to Romeo that is looking for someone special, looking for and needing love: "Say it. I need to hear it," he whispered as they lay there shaking together. "Tell me you love me, Juliet." There's so many times this hero said things like that, really heartfelt things that made me love him and even tear up for him. And the times when he tells Juliet that he 'f-ing' loves her, you get that grit of who he is mixed in with the man he wants to be.

I couldn't resist Romeo. He had me wrapped right around his finger. And just as much as I loved Romeo, I loved Juliet. It's rare for me to fall for a heroine. I usually like them a little or a lot, sometimes I dislike them or think them TSTL, but with Juliet, I loved her and wanted her with Romeo. I loved that she's tough and independent, hard-working and caring. She's kick-azz, too. Gotta love a woman who packs heat and isn't afraid to use it.

More About the Author

A freckle-faced redhead born and raised in Hawaii, Kele Moon has always been a bit of a sore thumb and has come to enjoy the novelty of it. She thrives on pushing the envelope and finding ways to make the impossible work in her story telling. With a mad passion for romance, she adores the art of falling in love. The only rules she believes in is that, in love, there are no rules and true love knows no bounds.

So obsessed is she with the beauty of romance and the novelty of creating it, she's lost in her own wonder world most of the time. Thankfully she married her own dark, handsome, brooding hero who has infinite patience for her airy ways and attempts to keep her grounded. When she leaves her keys in the refrigerator or her cell phone in the oven, he's usually there to save her from herself. The two of them now reside in Florida with their three beautiful children, who make their lives both fun and challenging in equal parts--they wouldn't have it any other way.
