Kendall lives off a dirt road near Atlanta, Georgia with three mischievous Demonlings, a dashing geek in cyber armor, and a long-haired miniature Dachshund that thinks she's a cat.

A story unlike any other with so much rich Hawaiian culture, complex characters, and an underlying supernatural feel. It WOWed me! Flawless writing with a kicka$$ heroine that rivals some of the best of the movie screen, I could not put this book down!

From the beginning, we understand that "'Ohana is everything". That is the connection all throughout the book and through the Alana 'Ohana (family-Keahilani, Kai, Bane, Mano) that has lived a rough life with their mother, Mahina on the island of Maui. But they are on their way to change things and make a better life for themselves. But there are things and people in place that are trying to prohibit them from going any further. From then on, we have mystery, suspense and twists and turns that are filled with sex, drugs, lies and mythical Hawaiian history. "The deeper you dig, the harder it is to crawl out."

Kendall Grey has woven a tale filled with such strength and beauty, yet complete firey darkness with characters that are so intertwined that you become invested in each one of them. Whether you love or hate them, you definitely feel SOMETHING for them. I'm completely intrigued with having such a strong "male-like" heroine that kicks a$$ and takes names and uses her obvious sex appeal to her advantage. She has no regrets because it's all for the 'Ohana.
"The fine line between vengeance and attraction was a tough one to straddle."

This is just the first book in the 'Ohana series, but doesn't end with a major cliffhanger. It's an ending that I am satisfied with and would still want questions answered, but it's smoking hot and I could literally hear some rockin music playing during the epilogue as the "credits begin to roll".

Even though I marinated on this story for days before writing this I'm still finding it hard to do it justice! This book was beyond amazing! The story was so crazy, twisty and turny, suspenseful, heartbreaking, and very poetic. Kendall has a way with words that just pull you in and don't let go!

She pulled so many emotions out of me and I'm still reeling and in shock a week later! There's a mythical and supernatural thing going on that is suspenseful and keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what on earth is going to happen! I had SO MANY WTF and NO WAY moments! I literally could NOT put this book down until I was done!

Everyone is so tied together it's crazy! Kendall Grey has an uncanny way of weaving an incredible tale of epic proportions! I was on the edge of my seat at every turn of the page and I will continue to be there until the next book comes out! And WOW what an ending! And I am so in love and invested in these character and cannot wait to see what's next! Bravo, Kendall, BRAVO!

After reading Kendall's Just Breathe Urban Fantasy series - which I loved...
After reading her Hard Rock Harlots series - which made me go "wow" (major warnings for this series) and still loved...
I was not sure what to expect with her NEW book HOT-BLOODED...
So here are my thoughts....

From the 1st chapter I was AFREAKINAMAZED...It is very different from her other 2 series. It is full of Emotion, Family, Love, Action, Guns, Drugs, and even a little magic...It is a very amazing book.

I like how Kendal put together this book. It takes place in Hawaii. I really enjoyed getting to know the female Lead, Keahilani Alana(Kea). She is a Twin, Surf Shop owner, a daughter, a sister, a lover and SHE will do whatever it takes to make sure her "Ohana", family is taken care of. Actually one of my favorite characters is one of her brothers Mano and I really hope he gets his own book. I Love those "bad boys" with heart...and I really think he has one in there. The other main lead is a male who goes by Blake. When He and Kea meet - it is explosive. And I will just leave it at that because so much happens between them and the story - I just don't want to give it away.

This is a book I am going to be able to share with Friends & Family, but yet it has enough "action, heart & suspense" to keep it right there on the "edgy" side.

I can't wait until it is released official on July 14th so I can get my personal copy.

Thank you Kendall for writing this story and I look forward to more.

Dark, gritty, immoral but all done in the name of Ohana “family”. With Hawaii and Hawaiian mythology as the backdrop along with a cast of criminals, killers and lovers this book does not adhere to conventional story telling.

This is a story of a native Hawaiian family whose foundation crumbled when their mother died. Keahilani Alana and her three brothers before their mother died were a loving but poor family raised by a woman they all loved and respected but once she is gone and they wonder how they will survive a secret hidden on an extinct volcano seems to be the answer they were looking for but it comes at the cost of staying on the right side of the law. Keahilani and her brothers have no problem doing what it takes to keep their family together and allow no one to mess with their ohana.

Along with the Alana family there is also a mobster and his assassin along with a few other quirky criminals. These characters are on a collision course through the book to both shocking and dire circumstances. Even though the mother dies at the beginning of the book we the reader through flashbacks of her whole life through the journals that Keahilani finds that tie in the Hawaiian mythology to the family along with showing that her life wasn’t what she presented to her children which showed where the violence started but also showed how far family would go to protect the ones they loved.

For those that need endings that come wrapped in pretty bows this is not that book. The saga of the Alana family will be continued in future books. Keahilani Alana and her alter ego Pele are reminiscent of Michael Corleone and pull you in just as powerfully. I’d like to crawl into the author’s mind to see where she is going with this story. I need answers now!
