"When it comes to revenge, love is a dangerous complication"
“This life is so complex that we rarely get to be the people we are truly meant to be. Instead, we wear masks and put up walls to keep from dealing with the fear of rejection, the feeling of regret, the very idea that someone may not love us for who we are deep in our core, that they might not understand the things that drive us.”
Romance, family, obligation, Mafia, forbidden-love... is this a Romeo and Juliet retell.. well kind off!
When it comes to revenge, love is a dangerous complication.With a fierce rivalry raging between two warring families, falling in love is the deadliest thing Sophie could do. An epic debut set outside modern-day Chicago.

"Vendetta wasn’t at all a typical contemporary romance novel, but a Mafia Romeo and Juliet laced with danger and enigma. It was thrilling to read and as I found the story unlike anything I’ve read before (the mafia part mostly), I’d definitely recommend it. I can’t wait for the second book!" Hazel
