Summary

Raised to hate them. Trained to kill them.

Witches are evil. They’re everything that’s wrong with this world. My unit is tasked with finding and killing each and every one of them.

Until he comes along. Caleb Carlyle.

My next target.

Silver hair, small with a big-boy attitude, and an offer I can’t refuse. Trade my cursed, frozen heart for his broken one.

When we join forces, witches and hunters turn against us. Now we have to rely on each other for survival and I know this won’t end well.

Rule number one of witch-hunting? Never trust a witch.

Even when he comes in such a gorgeous package.

Yet his honesty surprises me every step of the way.

Is it all a lie? Or are there darker forces at play here? And if witches aren’t evil, who is?

Killer Heart is the first book in a gay urban fantasy romance series.
It’s filled to the brim with magic, heart-pumping action, and steamy times.

Book 1 contains enemies-to-lovers and bi-awakening and ends on a HFN minor cliffhanger.

Listen now and immerse yourself in the curse of a lifetime.

Does not live up to the title's subheading

Let's clear this up, the book is not 'breathtaking'. It's good if occasionally confused.

Urban fantasy with enemies to lovers. There's a lot going on but bear with it, it all makes sense by the end.

Also Wade is a totally unlikable character at the start of this book, but there are reason for a lot of his behaviour. He's no pussycat by the end but a lot of his behaviour is explained away by events. His constant denial of being gay or bisexual is jarring, though.

The narrator is new to me and did a reasonable job, although sometimes the voices got confused.

Book ends on a soft cliffhanger, with MCs together as a couple.

Amazing urban fantasy

Wade hunts witches, Caleb is a witch. So, at first glance, there is nothing these two men should have in common. Between the curse that has haunted Wade since he was a child and Caleb's empathic abilities, this story just got more interesting by the second. As there are outside forces at play, you will find yourself gasping and in shock as each curve is revealed.

Great worldbuilding!

Story: I was awed with the worldbuilding in this story! It's a rich and complex realm that we get to see and experience first hand, with plenty of descriptions and narrative that helps navigate and understand it. It's a great skill, especially with such variety and amount of details, to still make it about the story first and foremost.
Teh dual POV narration did a great job of showing both sides of the story and the plot twist kept it interesting.
Looking forward to learning, what's next!

Narration: The voice was interesting and differentiation for various characters was done really well. In some places though, I felt that the inflection did not correspond with emotions I expected from the story itself. Overall though, it was a good performance for sure.

Enjoyable start to a new series :)

Two men on opposing sides have to work together against a common enemy - not quite enemies-to-lovers, but fun all the same.
The world-building for the story is well done and I had no trouble following the story, (I have not read the prequel, Foxy Heart). The story has magic, suspense, some twists (I didn't see coming) and so much more going on. Wade and Caleb make a good couple and hope to see more of them and their growing relationship.
John York provides a multi-faceted performance - characters are distinct, emotions portrayed well, accents were well done. Definitely a great way to enjoy the book!
