Please note: this is not dark romance.

I am not a good man.

I have lied and cheated and stolen. I've decided between life or death, like it was my due. None of it matters, not anymore. These are not my sins.

No gifs or pics or collages or whatever. Just words to convey how serious I really am.

I cried while writing this review. Not because the book’s events made me sob my heart out, but because how painful it was to write since this book was one of my most highly anticipated releases. It’s the hardest one I’ve had to type, especially when I’ve been struggling between being completely honest and just sugarcoating my feelings. I’ve jumped back and forth between ratings, prodded my

First things first....HOT COVER!



Secondly....catchy blurb. You had me at..."I'm not a good man"

However, I kind of struggled with this one though. My biggest problem was I didn't get the connection between Devon and Leighton.

Vendetta is another take on the whole kidnapping scenario....mafia style. The Andre's (Devon) and the Moore's (Leighton) are both mafia families....rivals.

The first 50% I was honestly asking myself over and over again where the connection was between Devon and Leighton.

I will be short but I was a beta reader for this book. I made many suggestions for improvements that were either ignored or overlooked, and these issues wound up being problems other people had with the book as well. I think this story had potential but needed some changes to improve it.

I had high hopes for Vendetta and I really, really wanted to love this story. The lure of a dangerous romance was too tempting to pass up! Ultimately I ended up liking the overall story, but I had a lot of mixed feelings, as well.

Leighton and Devon are related to rival mob families where the hatred runs long and deep. When Leighton stumbles on a clandestine deal going down she’s kidnapped and held by Devon at his family’s compound. Leighton knows that Devon hates her family and she has no love

Edit: Hi all! As we all know, not every book is going to rock our world. But, if you are interested in this book, I suggest previewing it. Who knows... you might end up really liking it. And my opinion will be just that - my opinion. That's the beauty of books, not all of them are the same and not everyone is going to like them. Happy reading! :)

Review:


"I wish you were someone else," she whispers and I hear the tears in her voice. My eyes open and I kiss her wrist hovering over my mouth, wiping away the single tear streaking her cheek with my thumb.

"Me, too," I say, and I've never meant anything more than I do those two words.

Vendetta is a story about two starcrossed lovers and their fight to be with one another. This is not a retelling of Romeo and Juliet. Though, I definitely got a "Montague/Capulet you can't be together" vibe from

"There are no innocents in our world. We are born tainted."

Vendetta wasn’t really what I was expecting. While I did have some issues with it, I found it easy to read and I was interested in how things were going to play out.

The Andre’s and the Moore’s are rival mob families, so the hate and distain runs deep. There is apparently new evidence that Leighton’s family had something to do with the murders of Devon’s mother, father, and little brother years earlier. It starts out with Leighton Moor

I have to say that the synopsis for this book is quite possibly one of the best and most enticing I have ever read. It completely WOWED me and the cover is just gorgeous and I knew I had to get an ARC into my hot little hands.

This book really has a got a bit of a Romeo and Juliet vibe going on. Devon and Leighton are children of opposing crime families and their union would be frowned upon to say the very least. We begin with Leighton spying on Devon and getting caught, knocked unconscious by on

I have deliberated for days on what to say about Vendetta, I have written and re-written this review so many times now, and if I am being completely honest, I am still a little stuck.

When I read the synopsis and saw the cover I was immediately smitten, pulled in hook, line and sinker. I mean who wouldn’t be interested after reading this –

First of all thanks to the author for providing me with an advance copy for a honest review.

This review is hard to write. In this case I think if I would have written it earlier maybe I would have given it a higher rating. The longer I thought about it the more things bothered me.

I'm not going to spoil it but try to name the things that bothered me.

1) I never loved the male main character.
2) Hated Haley. Mega bitch and just poof vanished.
3) Amber. hated everything about their interactions.

I started reading this book with great hopes and now i'm a little disappointed.....actually really disappointed.



I really wanted to REALLY like this this book.I just couldn't.Things happened so fast and i was just left wondering :

What's going on here ??



I just wish this wouldn't happen :(

I'm not saying this was bad and others are not going to like it.
No....this just wasn't the book for me !! :/

The summary is sooo cool and the cover is SUPER COOL

3,5 stars It had the bones of a really good story, times where I didn't feel that connection between the characters and times when it became confusing as all hell..The cover is hot, the blurb sounds out of this world and my kind of story but about half way it just didn't have that pull on me to keep going, I wasn't lost in the story, absorbed in it like I thought I would've been..

I loved this book HARD. Vendetta is the story of Devon and Leighton. Coming from different mafia families, Devon and Leighton are fated to be enemies.
Our story starts with Leighton getting caught spying on Devon meeting with a man who is betraying her family. Once caught, Devon takes her prisoner and brings her back to his house.


Leighton is locked in a room, trying to figure out the dynamic between her and Devon, and trying to figure out how to stay alive. Neither one can keep their hands off of

Vendetta

Vendetta by Autumn Karr and Sienna Lane reminded me a modern day version of Romeo and Juliet. In this case, Devon Andre and Leighton Moore are children from two mob families. who have bad blood and history. Devon Andre was left an orphan at the age of 13 when his family went missing and found murdered. He was soon taken in and raised by his uncle Frank. Under his care, Devon wanted to solve and get to the bottom who kill

I'm going to be honest here and say that I am disappointed with this book. I liked it, yeah, and Vendetta could have had so much potential to be a great read but there were just enough issues I was not happy about. First, it was a mob/mafia story so I wish it was longer. I felt like I was reading the shorter version of the real book. Because of that, it led me to my issue number two which is I didn't completely connect with the characters. And half of the story deals with the heroine being kidna ...more

What if you fell in love with the one person you could never have, a love that would kill you both? This is the dilemma Devon has and from the first page of this book I felt my soul being torn for him.

 photo Vendetta_zps6b054a54.jpg


These guys are the Romeo and Juliet of the mob world. Not only should they hate each other there is no way they can both live with the amount of blood between them. And honestly if we didn’t see inside of Devon’s head I would have held her hand when she pulled the trigger.

ARC was kindly provided by the authors in exchange for an honest review. Only posted here till the Vendetta blog tour.

First of all, this is not an ordinary story. It has a complicated start and it doesn't clear the air between the two characters immediately and I loved that. It's kind of boring when a story starts with too may details and suddenly you know everything about the characters. This was definitely not the case.

So not the case.

I was so excited to read this. Great blurb. It just grabbed me. The woman you love is going to shot you and you don't really react? I'm a bad guy? All the makings of a great read.

Leighton is the daughter of a the head of a "Family". You know the kind. The kind with a capital F. She is kidnapped by the son of the rival Family. Kidnapped you say? Well kidnapped in that she is taken to his family's house and locked in a room. But she can watch TV, draw, chat with Family f
