Review: Black Hearts by Karina Halle

Black Hearts is a BRAND NEW STANDALONE DUET – the second book and conclusion, Dirty Souls, releases March 17th.
For Vicente Bernal, truth is all he’s known. The son of an infamous drug lord, Vicente was born to help run the family business, which means he’s been raised on a throne of sordid pasts and dirty laundry, violence and pride. But when Vicente stumbles across someone he’s not supposed to know about – a woman from his father’s checkered past – he sets out to California to find her behind his father’s back.
What Vicente doesn’t expect to find in San Francisco is Violet McQueen, the woman’s twenty-year old daughter. Beautiful and edgy with a vulnerability he can’t resist, Violet tempts Vicente from afar and though he promised himself he’d stay away from her, curiosity and lust are powerful forces. Besides, Vicente has always gotten everything he wants – why shouldn’t he have Violet too?
Soon his wants turn into an obsession, one that sweeps Violet into his games as they fall madly, deeply in love with each other, the type of first love that can drive a person mad.
But it’s a love with tragic consequences.
Both the truth – and the lies – not only threaten to tear them apart, but threaten their very lives.
Someone has to pay for the sins of the fathers.
And they’ll be paying the price with their souls.
Black Hearts is a BRAND NEW STANDALONE DUET – the second book and conclusion, Dirty Souls, releases March 17th. 
You could say I’m a connoisseur of books that are edgy, gritty and with a touch of the dark side. After reading the blurb for Black Hearts, I just knew I had to read this one and plus…it Karina Halle…enough said. 

Let me start with this can be read as a stand-alone. Black Hearts is a spin-off from The Artists and Dirty Angels trilogies and you will have no issues jumping in since it revolves around the children of the two couples from these books.

Violet is your normal twenty-something girl, she lives with her parents while attending school but she’s really not sure what her future holds. Violet has always had this sixth sense that her parents were hiding something from her and what she finds in a mysterious envelope proves she was right.

 Vincente was not raised like most children since his father was the most powerful leader of a drug cartel and he is suppose to take over his father’s role. When he finds a hidden folder in his father’s office, Vincente sets out to find answer’s.

I loved everything about Black Hearts. It’s suspenseful, sexy, intriguing and one chapter flows into the next. Told in both POV’s you get to know both Violet and Vincente along with their struggles and I can’t wait for the next installment!
