Publisher's Summary

A Love in Laguna Novel
Jim Carney has a full time job - running from himself. Since he walked out on his wealthy family at 16 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?

Good Story

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this BUT I just felt the ending was rushed and not really satisfied with the loose ends with Jims family but I was glad to know what became of his high school friend. I also became more frustrated with Jim through the middle to end of the book, I wanted to strangle him myself! I do want to read Billy's story and can't wait. With the narration I LOVED the narrators voice for Ken Tanaka, so sexy!!!

Good story

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator. It was difficult to differentiate the characters, they sound the same and the female voice was not very femenin.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

It was understandable

Could you see Knave of Broken Hearts being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No.

Family is a blessing and your achilles heel

Jim left home at 16 knowing he couldn't fulfil his father's dream in more ways than one.
Ken is a cardiologist, from a traditional Japanese family. His mother has accepted that he is gay but does this not stop the matchmaking; but can she find the one for him.
KC Kelly really brings these characters alive as the sparks grow larger and larger but they have to battle Jim trying to work out his sexuality and Ken wondering if he can be a one guy man. This is against the a backdrop of family members who think they what is best for them and are trying to live their dreams through Ken and Jim. Caught up in the maelstrom is Jim's younger brother, Constance, a women Jim likes but cannot love and her overbearing and for Ken a suitable suitor who may not be all that he seems.

Tara Lain has written a tale that ensnared and KC Kelly has us rooting for Jim and Ken.
