Nope. Just nope. Didn't like the story, characters, everything.
The description of this book had me hook, line and sinker. I devoured this baby. Deliciously angsty. Tons of twists and crazy turns. Cain and Calla's love story spans a lot of years, tears and fears but in the end, true love and devotion won out.

I don't have any tattoos. I am neither brave enough or cool enough. But I know lots of people with tattoos. But none there. I mean talk about a big owie.
Calla and Cain are young and in love. And in true Romeo and Juliet fashion, their parents are against them. So using all brains a pair of 18 year old possess, they run off and get married. That has to work, right? Not so much.

Review by Jen Hagen
“I love you. Just remember that and everything will be fine.”
If you’re going to hear your husband speak his last words to you, at least it’s something heartwarming. Calla and Cain’s wedding day has to go down in the books as one of the worst wedding days ever. One minute you’re married, the next you’ve left your husband to break the news to his father, and
BAM! You are now an estranged couple.
Calla and Cain married young at 18 years and their parents were not thrille ...more
I probably would have rated this higher it there was so much unnecessary drama or a lot of repetitive speak/thoughts, I found my mind wandering. Especially in the first half of the book.
Near the second half is where I really got in to the story and then was invested in the characters.
Cain was a mystery but he put his heart on the line for Calla. He tried to be all tough be alpha you women but she totally put the kibosh on that haha. I love that she never took any grief f ...more
Cain and Calla are young and in love. Their wedding happens in a flash and they are happy until their families get in the way.
Cain must protect Calla and there is only one way for that; he needs to hurt her the night of their wedding.
Calla flees. She grows up and when she returns to Cain and his MC she only wants one thing: A divorce.
Secrets have thrown them apart but will the truth pull them back together?

Cain and Calla's story began full of innocence and hope but was quickly overrun and shattered by betrayal, heartbreak, loneliness, despair, and danger. The path to rebuild what they once had into something even stronger and solid enough to survive any storm was a rocky one.
Calla learned that nothing about her life was what she had always thought it was, and no one in it was who she knew them to be. While s ...more
The twists and turns of this book kept me interested and wanting more! The secrets, excitement and sex scenes were stimulating. This love story demonstrated not only how naive young love is, but how far people will go to sacrifice for those they truly love. I can't wait for the next book!
I tried, I really did. But this book was shit.
Here's a list of the things that made me hate it - Enjoy!
- Heroine was a dumb bitch, who fluctuated between crying, arguing, getting angry and being horny, on repeat. She cried at the drop of a hat, then acted like a hard-ass the next minute, only to then be distracted by her 'husbands' ass. I lost any respect I might've had for her the second she started lusting after the man who broke her heart. Her resolve to hate him las ...more

Title: The Wrath of Cain
Author: Kathy Coopmans
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Suspense, New Adult
Series or Standalone: Series (The Syndicate #1)
One of the first things I noticed about this book was that it isn’t your typical MC read. There are quite a few things about it that remind me of other books of that nature that I’ve read, but it stood out because of another element added to it.
The mob/mafia angle is brought into this quite early on and becomes an integral part, even goin ...more
“How can you feel a pull so strongly towards someone when in reality you never knew them at all? How can you love someone so much after being separated for as long as we have, and at the same time want to gouge their eyes out? It’s a riddle I will never be able to solve. A puzzle that will always be missing that last piece no matter how hard I try to find it.”
Wrath of Cain is my first book by Kathy Coopmans, and let me tell you, she has blown me away. This book is intens ...more
When I saw that Wrath Of Cain takes place in Detroit, I immediately signed up. Why? Well if you didn’t know already, I am from Detroit so I got to support the books about my city. The fact that it was an MC and Mafia book, well that was just the icing on the cake for this book whore.
I was immediately sucked in after only a couple of sentences. I wanted to beat the holy hell out of Cain, and I kind of wanted to slap Calla as well for not standing up for he ...more

Was pleasantly surprised once the story took off. While at one point it did seem the situation may be far fetched, I was so into the storyline that it honestly didnt bother me at all.
