Please note: this is not dark romance. I am not a good man. I have lied and cheated and stolen. I’ve decided between life or death, like it was my due. None of it matters, not anymore. These are not my sins. I see her raise her hands, the dark metal she’s clutching reflecting the moonlight. Her finger trembles as she cocks the gun pointed at me. Her eyes are cold, determined, but I know. I know her. My name is Devon Andre and I confess my sin. I am not a good man because this is the woman I love. She pulls the trigger. * Standalone contemporary romance. * Mature reader advised due to sexual content and strong language.
Don’t shy away from this story because it is a mob related book. I really liked the story of Devon and Leighton, who come from two opposing mob families. Although they claim to hate each other, they have an obvious attraction and find themselves now in a situation where they are together. This story is incredibly suspenseful, and once I started, I could not put it down.
I did not see the rather huge plot twist that comes about half-way through the book and recommend that you not do read any spoilers because it is best that you don’t know what’s coming. There is plenty of sex to go along with this very suspenseful story, and the characters are very well-written. Vendetta is getting some mixed reviews, but it is a great read for fans of crime stories with some lust and sex thrown in. The authors are very talented story-tellers and I look forward to reading more from them!

I stiffen the moment he walks through the door, his eyes pinning me as soon as he locks it shut. He’s carrying a bag of food in his hands, and places it on the table along with his car keys as he makes his way over to where I’m sitting on the chair. He smells faintly of cigar, mixed with his spicy cologne. Even with all the mixed emotions I’m feeling right now, the anger and the pain, I still want him. I’ll always want him.
“I brought something you will definitely like this time,” he says in greeting, flashing me a grin. His mood seems lighter than before he left, which makes me even madder because there he is, grinning playfully while I’m hours away from being taken away.
He pulls out his phone, then quickly checks the screen and shuts it off, putting it back in his pocket. I’ve never seen him bring a phone in here before. A plan starts to form in my head. If only I could get my hands on that phone, everything would be so much easier. I could call someone to let them know where I am, to come and get me while I’m still here.
“I’ll eat later.” I stand up from the bed and take a step closer to him. I place both of my hands flat on his hard chest, and give him a sultry look. “I have something else I want right now,” I say, looking pointedly down his body.
His green eyes narrow to slits, turning heavy-lidded. “Is that right?” he asks, already pulling his shirt off with both hands, sliding it over his head and revealing his sculpted abs and toned chest. Fuck, one glance at his body is all it takes.
My eyes linger on the indentation of his hips, that sexy V I love to run my tongue across. I lick my bottom lip, anticipation and lust taking over my senses. He undoes the button on his jeans, but then stops there. I lift my head up, giving him a curious look.
“I want to see you,” is all he says, his eyes never leaving mine. Sinking my teeth into my bottom lip, I lift off my sweater, pulling it gently so it doesn’t tangle in my hair. I pull off my jeans slowly, sitting back on the bed to pull them off my ankles. I stand up before him in my bra and panties, letting him look his fill. I don’t feel an ounce of shyness—instead, his blatant perusal makes me feel powerful. His lustful gaze and the tightness of his jeans let me know he likes what he sees, and spurs me to reach back and undo my bra. I throw it onto the floor, and grin at Devon’s hungry gaze zooming in on my bare breasts.
