About the Book
Born with a silver spoon?
Try a diamond.
The blood that runs in his veins has marked him for greatness.
He’s the type of man who doesn’t fold under the heaviest of pressures but rather he thrives in it.
It’s how he’s become the youngest, most influential person in the business world.
He doesn’t look too shabby either.
At the age of 24, he’s been dubbed as the hottest bachelor in the country.
Yet, he’s as elusive as the rarest pearl that he gifted me with when we were younger.
Oh yes, I forgot to mention one important detail–
His name is Matteo Andrei Tanner.
Before he became king of his empire, he was simply Matty to me.
This is the first standalone in the Next Generation: Love Unexpected series

NICUnurse’s Review of Black Hearts Red by Anne Leigh
Black Hearts Red is the first book in the Next Generation: Love Unexpected series. And you guys have no idea how excited I am that this author is continuing this series into the next generation! This book is Alissa and Matteo’s story. Alissa is Zander & Sedona’s daughter from Love Unexpected (the first book from this author and the one that made me fall in love with her words!). Matteo is Milo & Ava’s son from Fight or Fall. These two grew up together, along with all the other kids, but there’s always been a stronger bond between them. Life took them in some very different directions, though. When Alissa needs Matteo to make her dreams a reality, will he help her or walk away for good?
If you’ve followed my reviews any, you know there is a short list of authors I’ll read anything they write. Anne Leigh is most definitely one of them. Her characters are always strong people who challenge the norms and succeed despite obstacles life brings them. And she writes stories that are truly outside the box of your normal romance books. She likes to challenge the reader to ask, “What if?” What if a football player fell in love with a nurse? Or a rocket scientist fell for a football player? And what would happen if two people grew up together, but had such different paths as young adults fell in love? Could they make it work? How would they make it work? And Black Hearts Red doesn’t fall short of that. (And there are plenty of sexy times, too!)
While it’s still not my favorite in the series (sorry, Anne…you know K is my man!), it was definitely an enjoyable read. The Love Unexpected series is most assuredly a favorite of mine, and I happily devoured this first book about their kids. And loved seeing where my favorite couples have ended up. If the status quo in romance books has you looking for something out of the ordinary, I challenge you to take on Anne Leigh’s books. I love that she loves to be different…and loves for her books to be different. And given the chance, I think you will too.
NICUnurse’s Rating: I give Black Hearts Red a hearty 4 propellers! Now…who will we read about next?!

About the Author
“I write because I love it and for no other reason. The minute I stop enjoying it will be the exact moment I will stop writing.”
Anne Leigh is a 30-something-year-old who refuses to let the calendar dictate her age. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and a Master’s degree in Nursing. She likes to write about strong women and equally strong guys who grapple with their emotions when faced with something as intangible as love.
She lives in Los Angeles with her husband. With her crazy schedule, she gets frustrated at L.A. traffic and needs an escape to keep her sanity, which her characters provide.
She did not think of publishing her stories and when she finally did, she’s truly appreciative of every, single person who found the time to let her characters become parts of their world.
She appreciates all the readers who leave kind comments/reviews on where they purchased the book because, without them, all her stories would remain locked up in her computer.
