Series: Blood For Blood #1
Author: Catherine Doyle
Publisher: Chicken House
Vendetta was so good, I couldn't put it down! From the start I was hooked. We have a young girl, Sophie who has one close friend left after the rest abandoned her because of something her father had done. Then we have five hot Italian brothers move into town and the story kicks off!!
There are so many great characters in Vendetta. Sophie the protagonist is such a strong character. She deals with so much in Vendetta but she doesn't take sh*t from no one, she see's beneath the surface of others and doesn't see the world in Black and white the way some characters do. Millie, Sophie's best friend, I loved she is so funny and girly and just the best friend a girl could have. She made me LOL several times. All I can say is the basketball scene, Girl Power! Then we have the five hot Italian Stallion brothers. Nic, is so swoon worthy he is a guy who isn't all he seems he's very loyal to his family, he's sweet, he sees everything in Black and white but you can't help loving him and feeling for him. Luca on the other hand is arrogant, scary, someone you want to punch in the face but I have to say he became my favourite out of all the brothers. I just want to hug him!! Valentino another brother is a character who really surprised me I don't want to say too much about him but I was shocked by him. Creepy Felice, the boys uncle, is creepy not much you can say about him than that! He gave me chills!
The storyline will have you gripped!! There are so many twists and turns and how everyone interlocks is done really well and there's this really dark, real aspect to the story. There's loyalty to the highest degree, revenge, tradition and a high respect for family. I don't want to give to much away but we have, a lot of revenge happening #bloodforblood
The Romance is swoon worthy, Sophie and Nic are the modern Romeo and Juliet torn apart by family. From two opposing families steeped in secrets and blood. You can't help cheering them on.
Overall Vendetta is a fantastic read, of family, revenge, romance and the dark side of humanity. I highly recommend this book to everyone, you won't be disappointed.
