After consuming the first book I couldn't wait for the release of this to feed my #oneclick addiction..
And like the first this was inhaled!! God my heart feels like it's been put through the wringer, from start to finish, I never wanted this journey to end. I loved these two!!
This ticked all my boxes, it's exactly what I seek with my mafia reads, from the grit to the dark and everything in between.

THERE ARE NOT WORDS. My heart is still beating out of my chest, tears still streaming down my cheeks. This story is EVERYTHING. A completely consuming, emotional vornado, a devastatingly beautiful marvel, completely epic in every way. And the perfect finale for this unforgettable duo of star crossed lovers.

Of course, I won’t say much about this plot- it’s mired in secrecy, as it should be. This book isn’t meant to be read- it’s meant to be experienced. But what I can say is that the narrative a

'Our fathers are enemies. Our lives are predestined – doomed from the start.’
‘You don’t date the son of a crime boss for the Irish mob when you’re the daughter of a senator.’

Well, what can we say after reading Trilina Pucci’s St. Simeon Prep Duet in one hit? It’s a tale as old as time, a gritty, raw, and dark version of the star-crossed lovers, Romeo, and Juliet. Riddled with angst, suffering, and manipulation. Saturated in love, passion, and eroticism. Swathed in heartbreak
Great ending. But Yeesh.

So, I loved the first book. Our poor star-crossed couple had a Shakespearean ending in book 1. And that's really where this duet breaks away from the Romeo and Juliet retelling. This book is about giving these tortured souls an HEA.

HOWEVER, they spend the vast majority of this book apart. #wompwomp 😐

There's a torturous 3-year separation that we get to experience with them. There is little to no contact at all. By 50% I was PISSED. I skimmed through the mafia carnage and o

“This pussy is mine to do with as I please. I will fuck it until it cries for me, and then I’ll kiss it better. Because, baby, I was made to fucking worship you.”

You ever start a book and just KNOW in your gut within the first few chapters that's it's going to be something epic, mind blowing, heart shattering and unforgettable? This duet!!!!

Calder Wolfe is one of my favourite book boyfriends of ALL TIME!! I will never forget him and his protective alpha dirty-talking hotness!!!

In order for me to somewhat enjoy book two, I had a pretend the die-hard InstaLove in book one was real and genuine.
It made the crazy emotions of Calder and Sutton more believable.

The angst and drama is there.
It’s all there. Sad deaths. Good deaths.
Angst of being apart.
I mean, most the book, they were apart from eachother… FOR YEARS.
And ended up writing in journals.. and masterbating to memories of eachother. 🧐

A love that transcends time! Calder and Sutton meant forever but the devil had other plans!

My heart is racing as the tears spill down my cheeks! I am just completely enamored with this love story and was addicted from the start! I didn’t know where Trilina would go and I definitely didn’t anticipate half of this but I couldn’t picture it any other way! That’s all I’ll leave you with because I will NOT spoil this experience for anyone! Just know it’ll all be worth the pain!

Holy. Fuck. Holy. Fuck. Holy Fuck.

The angst. The choas. The revenge. The tragedy. The sacrifices. The love. The beauty. The pain. The ending.

Trilina Pucci you are a sadistic bitch and an angel all rolled into one. Sinning Like Hell wrecked the hell out of me, tore my heart to pieces, and then you so beautifully put it all back together.

I didn't think I could fall more in love with Calder and Sutton but Pucci proved me wrong. These two owned me. The love they ha

Trilina Pucci has delivered an edge of your seat, dark and delicious story that readers will LOVE! Calder Wolfe will own your heart and soul, and Sutton's fight and passion is 100% perfection. The conclusion to their story is one of epic love, which will take you on an emotional roller-coaster ride that is worth every page of heartache and pain.

This author pulls no punches with this storyline and the extremes to which these characters will go for not only each other, but for vengeance. Every sc

Blown away by the beginning, middle, and end! The author told a star-crossed-lovers tale like no other, drenched in passion and soul searing love.

Calder and Sutton were destined. True soul mates who would be tested in every way.

This one will tear you apart, but the love holds true and it endures. You’ll be swept up into mafia life and dragged through the trenches. Calder will need to find his monster to take his queen. Sutton will need to find her strength and her path to become the queen for he

Phew, she did it again! Ms. Pucci nailed the Romeo and Juliet theme with a twist of her own. Just Like Heaven left us on such a high cliffhanger, I wondered what was next. Sinning Like Hell (*chef’s kiss*) was the perfect continuation for Calder and Sutton!

OMG…the first half of this book ripped my heart out. It was so down and depressing that it really affected my mood. I guess that is when you know it is well written. It sinks into your soul. This is the continuation of the story Just Like Heaven. So if you haven’t read that one, you must read it first.

Calder and Sutton continue their story. They live years apart. You discover how horrible life is for Sutton

Never did I see people so dramatic in my life. It was kinda justified cause Sutton went through hell and back, but the writer really did the most.

This book TORE OUT MY HEART, chewed it up, spit it out and then someone drove by in a military tank and ran it over to where I had to try and salvage the rest of the pieces as best as I could in order to put it back in my chest.

The race to see if Calder would get to Sutton in time, over and over, just wore me out. In the best way because when they FINALLY seen each other, FINALLY touched one another, FINALLY breathed the same air as the other, it fel

What an epic, sad, and tumultuous journey. A love story that is written in the stars between two lovers with a soul deep connection beyond explanation.

Of course I have to mention Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. This classic tale is most known for the tragic death of two star crossed lovers, but really it's the entire story leading up to how these two fated lovers came to that scene that truly matters to true romantics. Romeo and Juliet's love is beyond soul deep. It's that kind of love that defi

A love story that makes you want to die but you really don't mind because the angst passion emotions filled heaven is waiting for you.

A Stunning Smashing Conclusion to AN EPIC LOVE STORY 💕💕💕

I'm gonna try and keep this review short and sweet otherwise I'd blabber all of the good stuff because I need to vent and talk after reading this phenomenal ride.

That prologue itself sort of made me ready for the roller-coaster ride that was coming ahead and it sure was.

This book will put you in a turbulence, make you twist and hurt so good, you'd not be able to turn the pages fast enough and trying to hang onto this tumultuous ride.

FLAWLESS! BINGE-WORTHY! PURE PERFECTION! The St. Simeon Prep Duet is complete.

I am well and truly wrecked after finishing this book. All the stars for this EPIC love story! I don't have enough words to express how much I loved Calder and Sutton's love story. It is a true and pure love that stands the test of time, amongst other things. This gripping plot sucked me in from the start and never let go. I had no idea what was coming next. So many emotions warred within me while reading. I cried more

Epic is probably the only word I could use to describe this book….it is a love story as old as time which spans worlds….two star crossed lovers…..with this book and the writing Ms Pucci absolutely smashed it out of said worlds!!! Totally captivating, heartbreaking, crazy hot, edge of your seat, chest achingly brilliant.

Even having read the first book in the duet I went into this really unclear as to how that nail biting cliffhanger would pan out….would it be a love story all wrapped in a red bow

Calder and Sutton have lived a life of hell. These poor kids could not catch a break for the life of me and Trilina.....I commend you for writing one heck of a duet. I think this has been one of the greatest duets I've read in 2021!

My heart bled for these two. They had such a strong bond, their love was like no other. They were faithful to each other no matter what. They fought and fought until the ends of the earth. Nothing and I mean nothing was going to keep them apart. They did the impossibl

This is an intensely emotional conclusion to this beautifully written saga about ill fated lovers.
The prologue effectively pulled me in, it is so haunting and teases of the magnitude of what is to come.
I can’t say much without spoilers, I can say this duet is on my best of the year list.
The mood/vibe of this book is different from the first book in the duet(Just Like Heaven)
It is more melancholic, it is much grittier.

Sinning Like Hell is the much anticipated ending to Calder and Sutton's story, and although I was anxious to get my hands on this book, my heart just wasn't ready.

Torn apart by their families, Calder and Sutton's plans to run away are shattered, leaving nothing behind but heartbreak. How can you move on when half of your soul is missing?

This was a phenomenal, epic read!

"There is no me without him. No world I'd be forced to exist in without him in it. The thought is unbearable."

Sutton and Calder were EVERYTHING! They were strength. They were sacrifice. They were passion. They were devotion. They were LOVE!

I devoured every single word of this story. It was graphic, tense, heart-pounding, heart-wrenching and so thrillingly passionate! I was fully invested in the
