She upholds the law. He breaks it.

Two blue hearts, both alike in bravery
In not-so-fair London, where we lay our scene
From gun crime to petty theft
Where family is blood and survival makes hands unclean
In this place, we find two hearts who should be foes
And yet, amidst the turmoil their love still grows
Misadventure abounds and the divide will bring them strife
But with luck, death doesn’t always mean an end to life.

Hearts of Blue is a standalone contemporary romance that tells the story of star-crossed lovers Karla Sheehan and Lee Cross, a police constable and the thief who steals her heart.

Sasha’s Book Review

5 One of the best reads of 2015 stars!

”The thin blue line will always lie between us, with me on the side of order and him on the side of chaos.”

Hearts of Blue was absolutely stunning, a perfect addition to the Hearts series. L.H. Cosway has a way with words, they pull you in, consume you, break you and put you back together. I felt so many beautiful things, it was a mesmerizing experience… but that actually happens every time you read L.H. Cosway books.

Lee and Karla right now top my favorite couple from the Hearts series. OMGOMG they were PERFECT for each other no matter the circumstances. They had like real life chemistry, i just couldn’t get enough. One of the things i loved most about them and their story is that somehow neither of them were wrong. They struggle for the right reasons. Lee’s life pushed him hard to make the decisions he had to make or otherwise it was going to be even harder for him and his brothers to survive. They were just kids alone in the world. So somehow Lee’s pov of life was understandable but also Karla’s because honestly she was simply a woman of the law, honorable and professional. The battle between trying to do the right thing and their attraction, the need for each other was very strong. My heart just ache for them.

”If I wasn’t me and you weren’t you, i’d go home with you in a heartbeat. You know that right?” I told him quietly.
For a second he glanced away, then bent his head to reply, his voice husky, ”It’s because you’re you and i’m me that we want each other, Karla. And i wouldn’t have it any other way.”

I can’t say is Cosway best work because ALL her books are a masterpiece. This is how you write romance. The Hearts series is breathtaking, each book is unforgettable. Cosway is my one of my favorite people on the planet. She writes and she delivers so much more than just a book.

NOW, BE STILL MY HEART! There is more Hearts series to come. Lee’s brothers Stu and Trevor will get their story in 2016!! And honestly Reya and Trevor needed a story, i mean i just could see their story forming in the air. I’M SO EXCITED.

Drop whatever you’re doing now and grab this book. It can be read as a standalone but if i don’t recommend the whole series i would be doing nothing. So go grab Six of Hearts and once you’re in you won’t be able to look back.

”The world isn’t blue, isn’t lonely anymore, and though i was supposed to be the thief, she was the one who stole my heart.”

Carolin’s Book Review: 5+ stars

“Hearts of Blue” is a forbidden love-story, a star-crossed lovers kinda romance. Karla is a police officer and Lee is a thief and gangster. When they meet, sparks fly instantly and they cross paths over and over again. Not always willingly… Can a love that ensues between two people, who live on the opposite side of the moral-pond as well as the law really survive?

How I love this series! Even though all the people are somehow interwoven, there is always something new in L. H. Cosway’s novels. It’s like opening a box of your favorite chocolates – you don’t really know what you get, but you’ll love it no matter what… I love Cosway’s writing and she didn’t disappoint this time, either! She has the rare ability to make me feel EVERYTHING, from butterflies in my belly over laugh-out-loud moments, heartbreak up to clench-my-thighs arousal.

The forbidden aspect of “Hearts of Blue” was always palpable throughout the book. I literally had to hold my breath and try to read in lightning-speed in order to find out what will happen next. And oh boy, there were quite a few ‘what the hell?’ moments.

It wasn’t just the love-story between Lee and Karla that touched me deeply, it was also the friendship and familial bond between the Cross-brothers that amazed me so much. Cosway even managed to somehow let me have a soft spot for the ‘bad guys’ of the story. Yeah, sure – it was just pity, but still…

Everything in this book was perfect: The characters, the pace of the story, the mystery, the pleasure of the forbidden aspect, the balance of humor and angst, the sex-scenes… Oh my, the sex was soooo hot!!!

The writing was like aforementioned amazing, but I often had to chuckle about the British slang. It wasn’t always easy to understand the words, since I’m more used to the American English. But don’t let that bother you, I got almost every word out of the context and loved to learn something new.

All in all, I rate “Hearts of Blue” with 5+ stars and can recommend it to everyone! In fact, I can recommend all books by L. H. Cosway, especially this particular series.

Now, I’m looking forward to reading about Stu Cross (“Thief of Hearts”)  – but most of all, about Trevor Cross (“Hearts on Air”), that guy is amazeballs! 🙂 Can’t wait for those two books in 2016 <3
