5 stunning stars!
Oh this book… it’s been days since I read it and the story is still with me! And of course it is impossible to review this without being cryptic and giving away spoilers!
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.
Leighton Moore and Devon Andre have a history. The forbidden love theme is there from the start and the readers will be a little shocked at first with what happens between them.
“Do you know how long I’ve wanted to do something like this to a Moore?” A humorless laugh escapes his full lips. “And now I have the princess herself,” he continues, turning the knife over in his hand. “What do you think I should do to you?”
Again, not ordinary.
“Her beauty doesn’t change her blood.”
Just when you think you have those two figured out, you don’t. Their love story kind of reminds me of Romeo and Juliet – I mean it is called Vendetta so that is kind of a giveaway – in a more twisted dark version but definitely not predictable!
That’s the thing with story, up to a point you have no freaking of what’s happening and I was plotting in my mind about what could possible lead the both of them to their situation and how can still love one another. But as the story goes on and there is clearly so much love that they both tried to bury that I couldn’t help but wonder how things will end for the both of them. There is a constant fear of one of them getting killed – mostly Leighton – and as the story progresses, there is a lot of background to back it up and it is slowly unfolding.
“Princess,” I say. “Apparently you ran off. Again.”
Her eyes water because she knows what it means, just like I knew. Nobody knows where she is.
Let me tell you this, the title does the book justice and till the end I was left wondering how will it be possible for those two to come out of this tangled situation alive. So worth the waiting and by far an amazing read!
