it was amazing

Sempre was fantastic. It is a real reader's book. Knowing this book was self published explains a lot. It is a raw story, straight from the author's imagination and heart. It shows. Sempre was a treat for me, after I had completed the day's tasks, I'd get to read until my eyes gave up. Carmine and Haven became alive. You want everything good for them. There is action, romance, and a great plot. There's also a much bigger purpose for the book. It shines an unflinching spotlight on modern day slavery.

Darhower does one of my very favorite things--blurring the lines between the good guys and the shining white knights. She does it so effortlessly, I actually smiled when I realized I was heartbroken because a murderer was injured. That takes some serious talent.

I hope you decide to treat yourself to this book. Please remember that it's not chick lit. This isn't bubblegum, gigglepants stuff, though you will laugh at times. It's novel with a journey that feels very important to take. Load it up on your eReader, you will not be disappointed.

Quotes Debra Liked

J.M. Darhower
“Colpo di fulmine. The thunderbolt, as Italians call it. When love strikes someone like lightning, so powerful and intense it can’t be denied. It’s beautiful and messy,
cracking a chest open and spilling their soul out for the world to see. It turns a person inside out, and there’s no going back from it. Once the thunderbolt hits, your life is
irrevocably changed.”
J.M. Darhower, Sempre
