Vendetta Review...

Title: Vendetta
Authors: Autumn Karr and Sienna Lane
Genre: Contemporary Romance (Forbidden)
Release Date: December 15, 2013
Tour Organized by: As the Pages Turn

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.


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.



I give this book 3 stars.

This book was a good read.  It was star crossed lovers meet mafia.  Leighton and Devon are from different mob families.  All Devon wants is revenge and Leighton is his way of getting it.  I liked this book but I have to admit at times I was really confused. I kept trying to guess what was happening and I couldn't.  The characters were well written but I wish we would have seen them interact more in the book or learn more about their past, like how they formed the relationship they had. The ending was good but felt very rushed.  The whole book was this big build up and your dying to see what happens and then BAM it's over.  I loved other characters mentioned in the book and hope that the authors write their stories.  I would recommend this book this book to friends.


Sienna Lane and Autumn Karr are two friends with a joint love of reading, writing, candy, and Disney heroes (and Disney songs, of course.)

When they aren’t scheming against fictional characters, or talking about their favourite books, you can find them ogling tattooed models and trying to figure out how to get them to do a cover shoot for their next book.

Together they wrote VENDETTA, releasing this December, and hopefully many more books to come.They love to hear from readers, so don't hesitate to contact them through their Facebook page (
