After a JMD book, I usually need a few days to myself to come back from that fangirl place my feels take me because this woman can do no wrong. She combines genres so beautifully and so effortlessly that her books give me major book hangovers!
Last year I got By Any Other Name on my inbox out of the blue and I went in knowing my feels will die - and they did. This year Sweetest Sorrow was a surprise release I didn't even know about and I happily went back into that world because it's JMD!
“The only good Barsanti is a dead Barsanti.”
Genna and Matt, the star-crossed forbidden lovers that are the modern version of Romeo & Juliet but the Mafia version are back! Technically this book is about Dante, Genna's brother but we got a lot of POVs in this one so I'll say it's a double-sided book, we get Dante and his life after Genna and Matt ran away and Genna's life with Matt on the run. Dante is in the hospital - not shocked considering the BAON ending, kind of relieved he's not dead. His POV has a little more Mafia related stuff than Genna's but also an unexpected love interest with a nurse he meets while at the hospital. I don't want to spoil anything, especially if you haven't read the first book but let's just say everything is possible in the mafia world and this book had the sweetest ending of all - I can only hope we get another book.
If I had to compare POVs I'd have to say I was almost skipping Dante's to get to Genna and Matt's because honestly, from the first book they just grabbed me and they are at a point in the story that you don't want to loose a single word from their story let alone pause it to skip to someone else's story and then get back to them but Dante's life was just as interesting - bad timing and placement for it to unravel.
The best part aside from Genna and Matt? CORRADO FREAKING MORETTI! He makes an appearance here in the most amazing way and it made me cry a little because the more you get to know him and the tougher he tries to appear the more I fall in love with this character! Do yourselves a favor and read the Sempre series ♥
The book is kind of slow and while I liked the book, I still think the Made series is a lot better; so is the Monster in His Eye series, both of which were so good I would read them again. The characters in these two series were more memorable than the ones in this book. This book continues the Romeo and Juliet theme so it's not very original but it's well written with well developed characters. I also liked it because it was realistic, even though the children of the feuding families keep falling in love, it doesn't make the other family members change their minds about being sworn enemies and keeping the feud going.
I liked Gavin's character a lot, he kept trying to bridge the gap between the two families and there are some veiled references to characters from the Made series (Corrado, my favorite mobster of all time!!). I look forward to hopefully reading Gavin's book next.
Ok so off of all that....I loved the storyline. So much. So much going on. It was just great. Intriguing. Interesting. Kept me flipping pages and trying not to scan ahead to figure out what was going on or going to happen. I loved Gavin. Loved him. The Amaro and the Brazzi family were awesome too. Gosh. So different than Matty and Dante's family. My heart still hurts for them having such awful fathers. The ending was good. So glad I decided to read these books.
I'm definitely looking forward to more of J M Darhower books. I hope Gavin Amaro gets his own book. Will he have his HEA? I'm sad that these characters are over. What a great read!!
