FGMAMTC Blog #TopReads2015 The Slayer Author & Character Interview  Excerpt from upcoming release The Enforcer 
I am completely in love with this book. Honestly, I was not expecting to get into it as deeply as I have. Marc was so charismatic that I just thought Chu's story would probably fall a little flat. I could not have been more wrong.

The Slayer skips between the present and the past; thus, many of the parts that happened during the other books involving Chu are filled in. Also, all of the characters who have grown to have a spot in our hearts are there. A bonus is that we learn more about lesser known characters who are sure to show up in future books, and of course they're awesome as well."Welcome to the wasteland for washed-up gangsters."
Chu is an MMA world champion who used to be a gangster. He tried to leave that world behind, but it crept back in. Now he's even found himself in bed with the Mafia.

I super enjoyed the bromance between Tino and Chu. They kept me smiling. Tino is really boisterous which is very complimentary to Chu's stoic nature. When Tino, Chu and Alaine had scenes, the dialogue left me truly rolling.

Chu has been in love with Alaine for five years but pushes her away because of how green she is. She's a small town girl with no experience with the way the big bad world works. But little Miss Alaine is not being left out by Chu no matter what.

This story is Chu's fighting, the sexy dealings with Alaine and Chu plus the friends involved or previously involved in organized crime. It has everything! I laughed and was emotional with tears, and I got so enwrapped that I felt like part of the cast/family. Some parts do head in a bit of a dark direction, but it definitely add to the storyline. Things don't work out perfectly for the characters some of the times which intensifies the quality for the reader.

I enjoyed this book so much that I definitely plan to do a reread, something for which I rarely allow time. It does contain some drug use, crime and murder (and a sexy Boricuan who loves to eat the P). The ending absolutely leaves you wanting the next book.

This was a 5 star read for me, and I will certainly read the next in the series.

Kele Moon has another hit! I’ve been dying for Chuito and Alaine’s story for years, and finally the perfect story has been delivered! I knew that Chuito and Alaine deserved one another, and boy, did Kele deliver! Let’s take a moment to admire that lovely, heartbreakingly beautiful cover…..and now for the review!
Chuito and Alaine have lived next door to one another for years. As the story opens, we see Chuito at a crossroads and finally succombing to Alaine’s advances. Quickly though, the story goes back several years and rehashes the entire relationship of Chuito and Alaine as we have never seen it before.
Chuito and Alaine are as different as can be. He has lived a rough life, alone for much of it, living with his issues and making a living fighting. Alaine is a preacher's daughter studying to be a lawyer. Yet each one finds the missing piece within the other. Alaine makes Chuito softer and Chuito gives Alaine the strength and bravery to stand up to life.
As with all Kele Moon books, she has given us lovely secondary characters. The Italians are on the move and things are building for an ultimate showdown. Romeo’s brothers will be getting their own books and I for one can’t wait. Fans of Kele’s books will be thrilled to finally read this exceptional story of Chuito and Alaine’s love, which definitely lives up to the buildup from the previous books. Brand new readers will have no problem picking this one up and jumping right in. One of the best authors out there, Kele Moon has another hit on her hands with Chuito’s story, The Slayer. Bravo!! ( )
