Review by: Gina

This was my first LH Cosway book and WILL NOT be my last!!! Actually, I think I need to binge read all her other books!!! First, let me say the cover is gorgeous. I absolutely love it and it's a great way to grab a readers attention! Second, the story line was perfection! It was unique and intriguing and kept me interested from beginning to end.

I really like Lee. Yeah, he was the bad guy but he did what he had to do for his family. And some of the activities he participated in were illegal he was doing it to not only help his family but those who couldn't help themselves. Like it was mentioned he sort of had the whole Robin Hood thing happening. Karla was one tough chick! I just loved her and I love that she played the cop role. I always like a badass heroine in a book.

Overall, Hearts of Blue was a fantastic book. It had everything, drama, suspense, smokin hot scenes, humor. I couldn't have asked for anything better. I thought the book was well written. It did take some time to get use to the British slang but the book does take place in London. At the end we got a hint on what's to come and I cannot wait!!!!

Excerpt
Lee didn’t answer, and instead he took a step forward, forcing me to back up if I didn’t want us to collide. The problem with this meant my back hit the wall a moment later. “You’re so pretty, Snap,” he said, voice low, as he dropped his face to my hair and breathed in. I wasn’t wearing a hat, and my hair was tied up in a bun. My entire body trembled when he wrapped his arms around my waist, inhaled deeply and pulled me into a hug. This was a distraction, I knew it, and yet, I let him distract me. I wanted to be distracted, and I was just glad that the blinds in his office had been pulled. Standing in his embrace for at least a minute with silence all around us, I was unable to move. I liked having Lee close, loved the feel of him and how he could make feel so…surrounded. Despite all the warning signs, my attraction to him only grew stronger. There was just something about him that called to me. “Lee.” His mouth moved against my hair. “What is it, Karla?” “Why are you hugging me?” “You looked like you needed to be held.” His response was low, and the affectionate undertone had me swallowing deeply. At long last I summoned the willpower to break the hug. His arms fell away from me easily, my stomach churning with confusion. What the hell was I doing? I stared at the floor when I spoke. “I have to go.” Heading for the door, I paused when he said gently, “Hey, I needed it, too.”
