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.

WOW!!! It’s hard to find words right now, I don’t think the wordLOVE even makes justice or can even describes how much I adored this novel. Karla handcuffed my senses and Lee stole my heart. Every character and every word in this novel was superb, everything simply worked perfectly to make a truly wonderful story.
Hearts of Blue is a very unique novel about how opposites attract; both main characters struggled with what’s right and moral and what needs to be done in order to survive the harsh world. Will love be the magical answer?
We first meet Karla and Lee in the book King Of Hearts. Karla is Alexis’ best friend and roommate, and from that first interaction between Lee and Karla at the grocery store, I remember loving them together so much and hoping they got their own book. Imagine my bliss when I found out about Hearts Of Blue.
It was hard to imagine how the romance between a cop and a thief was going to work. But leave it to L.H Cosway to create a masterpiece where a love is so strong that it can right every wrong and make the crooked want to go straight.
Karla loves helping people and that is the main reason why she became a Police woman. She struggled from the beginning with Lee’s advances because it didn’t make sense to give into her desires. In her mind there’s no way that they can ever be together. Especially since she’s worked so hard to earn the respect of her colleagues in a career that is primarily dominated by men. Problem is, that Lee is very smart and charming and he really wants Karla. So he goes against his brothers, or any argument anybody could have about how they shouldn’t be together and catches Karla so they can fall, together in love…
When Lee is with Karla she makes him want to be a better man and even believe there is a brighter future for someone like him. Someone who’s had to fight his whole life to survive and provide for his family.
It’s not easy, but when they finally decide to give their relationship a real try, they are forced to be together in the dark and away from all the judging eyes. Lee is showing Karla a whole new world she never knew about, where people have to make hard choices in order to survive and those with power always come on top, stepping over the least privileged.
They come from two different worlds and it will be a constant struggle for them to be together. Karla hates what Lee does for a living and even though she’s now more understanding of him, she can’t simply ignore how wrong what he and his brothers do is, no matter how noble.
Unfortunately soon she will find herself in the worst situation possible, one where she must choose between her career and her love.
Like always, in love, people hurt each other and this will also be the case for this couple. Will they be able to forgive their mistakes and trust that their love will be enough?
