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.

As soon as I read the synopsis for this one I HAD to know. Who was Devon Andre, who was this woman he loved, and most importantly WHY did she pull the trigger? I waited on pins and needles for this ARC to get here and had a hard time putting it down once I had it open and reading.

Devon Andre is a good man born into a family where crime and violence is a way of life. Loyalty and family honor above all else. So imagine what a train wreck of heartbreak awaits him when he gets involved with the rival families only daughter, Leighton Moore.

Leighton Moore has loved Devon from afar for years and knew they could never be together. Then she sticks her nose somewhere she can’t and leaves herself at the mercy of one of her father’s traitors or the enemy Andre family.

Devon kidnaps Leighton.

From here secrets are revealed. A love blossoms. Betrayal, heartache, and loyalties are tested.

What would you do to protect your family?

Could you kill the one person that was put on this planet for you?

Vendetta was a great read. It moved right along at a fast pace and kept me guessing what was going on and who was doing what. Then there was the chemistry between Devon and Leighton. I loved these two together and the strength they had to endure what they must. My only complaint about this book was I wish it had been just a few pages longer, but that’s just me being stingy. I wasn’t ready for it to be over just yet..

Vendetta gets 5 GREAT BIG STARS from me!!!

His mouth slides down my throat, his warm breath tickling the sensitive skin of my neck, and a shiver runs through my body. That’s all it takes from him; he has such an effect on me, always has. Holding me tight against his body, he talks into my ear.
“I couldn't get you out of my fucking mind. Every living thought I had was stained by you, out there in the darkness, my hands all over your body, your fingers running through my hair, your moans and sighs. I fucking hate you for being my weakness.”
His mouth finds mine, and he bites on my lip, punishing me. “I needed to get you out of my head, out of my heart, out of my soul. You owned me, and I wanted myself back.” His hand tangles in my hair, and he pulls it back harshly, exposing my neck. “I just want myself back,” he ends on a whisper, and then his teeth skim my neck, making my breath hitch.
He trails his mouth up over my throat, his hand making its own way down my stomach, where he finds the button of my jeans and pops it open. He kisses along my jaw as he slides the zipper down, and reaches his hand into my panties. I gasp as his fingers slowly inch down and he slides first one, then two, and starts to explore, thrusting them in and out in a delicious rhythm. He pulls my head back gently and kisses my lips. His hand travels down the side of my face, over my collarbone, between my breasts and down to my stomach, finding its way under my shirt, cupping my breast. I moan as he rubs my clit with his thumb, making me quiver with his probing fingers, and his tongue delves into my mouth, stopping only to bite on my lips. I can feel his arousal pressing into my side, and it turns me on even more knowing that I have this effect on him. I hide my face in his neck, biting gently as the first wave of pleasure hits me. My thighs start shaking and Devon wraps his arm around my back to hold me up. I tear my mouth away from his neck and arch my back into the wall behind me, cursing as the pleasure starts to take over my body.
“Leighton,” Devon growls. I open my eyes and look into his as I ride the climax, his heavy-lidded, burning gaze making me lose myself even more.
