It's interesting the pride you receive for being the son of a mafia leader. Corrado never fit in or had many friends, but he found his fit into the mafia. Corrado proved his worth to his father.
Interesting how Corrado thought he was good enough to take orders from the boss, but not good enough to date the boss's daughter.
Celia is amazing. She is a breath of fresh air. I love her attitude and her comment to not follow the rules or fall within the standards of life. Celia decides for herself what she wants and does not let people like her father control her. How very different these scenarios are. Corrado is in a position where he follows the orders given by the boss and Celia who is the daughter of the boss gets to choose to deny his rules.
I like these tough Italian mafia women. They know how to handle their men.
JM Darhower uses powerful words to evoke so much passion and emotion. I'm hooked and consumed. Corrado and Celia are two amazing characters. Corrado is a man who believes himself to be a monster. Celia is a woman who sees Corrado as a charming man. For Celia growing up in the life of the mafia has been a rewarding and powerful experience, but not for Corrado. Corrado's life in the mafia has been violent and full of anger and depression.
The detachment that Corrado has for his job in the mafia is stunning. This same man can show love, honor, and trust to Celia and then turn around and stab a man with no emotion.
JM Darhower wrote this story with such the perfect calculations of events. Every event was done for a reason. This is the most time I have spent on a story and I love it. I get so lost in the story and enthralled that I become one with the story. Not one scenario is boring. It's so carefully written that I have no idea what direction she is going to take the story. It's like nothing I've ever read before. Who knew I could be so entranced by a story that was not erotic or abusive. Its beautifully executed.
I'm sad it's over. I could have continued reading. Very entertaining.
I loved how Corrado and Celia meet as kids and the instant connection they share. Then years later, their paths cross again and the attraction is still there. Their romance is not without some major challenges. Celia is the boss' daughter for heaven's sake! Celia is a strong willed character though and will not stand for her father's objections to her dating Corrado. Thankfully, things turn out well for the most part. I loved everything about Corrado. He is dedicated heart and soul to Celia and he is equally dedicated to his role/work in La Cosa Nostra. It's a delicate balance. When he performs the ugly tasks he's given by the boss he keeps his emotions turned off completely. Celia is the only person that he is completely open and honest with and without her love, I don't know how Corrado would survive.
The groudwork for how the future will play out in the Sempre books in enlightening. How Celia's brother Vincent meets the love of his life Maura. How Haven becomes a mission impossible for the couple and how it ultimately results in Maura's demise.
There were some issues that I wished I got a clear answer to though - why do Celia and Corrado remain childless throughout their marriage? I never felt that this was completely explained, but in the end it didn't matter to me. I was so wrapped up in the DeMarco/Morretti family history that it wasn't important. It seemed that Corrado felt that he was not the fatherly type, but you find as time goes along, that he is a devoted uncle.
Now you could read this as a stand alone, but it's so much better if you read the Sempre books first. J.M Darhower has become one of my top 5 author's to watch. Highly recommended!!!!
