Star Crossed (Battered Hearts #2) by Kele Moon

Heavyweight MMA 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 MMA, 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.

5/5 stars

As soon as I finished this book I immediately went to Kele Moon's website to find out when the next book was coming out cause damnit, I need it now! I loved this book even more then the first of the series, Defying the Odds. I mean first of all, it's pretty damn sexy. Every scene that Jules and Romeo are in together is just scorching with sexual tension. They definitely make a great couple. They had me laughing, fanning myself and near the end I had to read through some tears. I love the back and forth that Jules and Wyatt had together; you could tell they were brother and sister. Some of they're conversations had me laughing out loud. I even had a little crush on both of Romeo's brothers and hope they get a chance to have a book. Lord knows they deserve a little love and happiness.

I loved this book, well really both books in the series and really hope more people will read them. I know that I'm going to be rereading them in the future and telling everybody I can to check them out. Kele Moon has a great story telling ability that more people need to be aware of. She is definitely on my list as one author to make sure I read.
