When it comes to revenge, love is a dangerous complication.With a fierce rivalry raging between two warring families, falling in love is the deadliest thing Sophie could do. An epic debut set outside modern-day Chicago.I can’t believe that it took me a year to finally read this. It’s been just staying in my shelf for a long time. I let my mate borrow my copy though I still have not read it, and when she returned it to me and told me it’s really good and if I have the second book, I got interested and it’s like the book is calling out to me READ ME READ ME READ ME I HAVE BOYS TO FANGIRL AND A PROTAGONIST THAT YOU WILL NEVER GET ANNOYED. Yes, FIVE BOYS AND A NON-ANNOYING PROTAGONIST.
When five brothers move into the abandoned mansion in her neighbourhood, Sophie Gracewell's life changes forever. Irresistibly drawn to bad boy Nicoli, Sophie finds herself falling into a criminal underworld governed by powerful families. As the boys' dark secrets begin to come to light, Sophie is confronted with stinging truths about her own family, too. She must choose between two warring dynasties - the one she was born into, and the one she is falling in love with. When she does, blood will spill and hearts will break.
Vendetta constitutes to full extent suspense, a bit of romance, AND SWOON WORTHY BOYS. I am also really in love with how this book was written. I was never expecting to read such young adult. It was really, really, really good. I know that I’m a fantasy fan but this? This series made me realize that I love kick-ass young adult even more. I love the twists and turns and the realizations… EVERYTHING! I love it.
I did not expect to meet such characters. Sophie, the main protagonist, was never annoying. I was expecting her to be devoid of good sense or judgment or just like any other characters on other books that cause you irritation. Though she doesn’t think right sometimes, she is so brave and amiable. I was looking forward to Nic and Sophie’s relationship but I think Nic was “something”, there’s this feeling you won’t understand on him but he’s good at Sophie though and he cares for her but… And, Luca, Nic’s older brother. Gosh, Luca, I can’t get him out of my mind. His character may want Sophie to throw rock at him but I know something is up on his sleeve. And he’s irresistible!
I recommend EVERYONE to read Vendetta! It deserves more praises than it already has.
Trust me; you won’t forget every single scene.

Romeo and Juliet meets The Godfather in the second installment of Catherine Doyle's Blood for Blood series.
Sophie's life has been turned upside-down, and she's determined to set things right. But Nic, the Falcone brother who represents everything she's trying to forget, won't give up on their love - and it's Luca's knife she clutches for comfort. Soon another mafia clan spoils the fragile peace - and with her heart drawn in one direction and her blood in another, Sophie's in deeper than ever.
I have not stopped myself from buying a copy of the second book. I want to know what happens next to Sophie and the Falcones, especially my Luca. I read it in the midst of a school-hellish-works and so here it is.
If Vendetta was really, really, really good, then INFERNO TOPS VENDETTA. Yes, you have read that right. It is moooooooore intense and thrilling, and has moooooooooore twists and LIES AND TRUTHS. Oh, I love the truths though it hurts. The secrets that have been unraveled of Sophie’s identity were frustrating and led to upside downs and deaths.
Blood for blood.
Oh, I wish that I could share the whole book to you (I hate to spoil) but all I can say is that Inferno is astounding and breathtaking. I am out of words of how a great read it is.
If you have not read this series, pick it as your next read. And, while we wait for the third book, let’s fangirl together and get excited!
