BLOG TOUR: Knave of Broken Hearts by Tara Lain

Thanks to Enchantress Design and Promo for hosting this blog tour. I'm sharing my review of Tara Lain's Knave of Broken Hearts today. Happy reading!



Jim Carney has a full time job—running from himself. Since he walked out on his wealthy family at sixteen because he’d wrecked his best friend’s life over some yaoi graphic novels, Jim has lived a macho, blue-collar existence of too much booze and too little responsibility. Then Billy Ballew, the man Jim most admires, gives Jim a chance to come through as his construction supervisor. For once, Jim is determined to make someone proud. Then Jim goes in for a physical for his new job and his yaoi dream comes to life in the form of cardiologist Ken Tanaka. Jim discovers he has two heart problems—a wonky mitral valve and a serious attraction to his doctor. But Ken is a major player, and Jim might be just a notch on the doc’s stethoscope. To Ken, Jim is unforgettable—but the living embodiment of his traditional family’s worst nightmares.

How come the minute Jim decides to be responsible, he finds himself taking care of his kid brother, getting a proposal from a wealthy woman, making a deal with the devil, and winding up in the hospital—when all he really wants is the Knave of Broken Hearts?

Holy sweetness Batman! Jim is such a teddy bear. Ken is sort of depicted as a player, but I didn’t feel that was so true. I found them both to be incredibly sweet and strangely occasionally naïve.

Parts of the plot were predictable, but it didn’t change the effect of the events. They were riveting and they most certainly tugged at the heart strings.

The supporting characters were superb as always. Constance and Ian were among my favorites, and I loved Billy’s role. I would have liked to see more of him and Shaz, but I understand why things had to play out the way they did.

I just really can’t wait to see more in this series, especially since the next book goes back to Shaz’s world.

Bottom Line:

Knave of Broken Hearts is a heartwarming sequel in an intoxicating series. Go grab this awesomely sweet and satisfying read!
