No one does mafia romance like JM Darhower. No one. This series is the perfect blend of forbidden romance, revenge, edge-of-your-seat suspense, organized crime, familial strife and unpredictability. The way Darhower illustrates this world, her unparalleled storytelling, her way of creating these thoroughly fleshed out captivating characters, the magnificent way she juxtaposes sweet romance with brutal violence... it's unlike any other. It's addictive and pulse-pounding and I just can't get enough.
I went into Sweetest Sorrow assuming this would be a continuation of Matty and Genna's story, but as dual interconnected storylines unfolded, this book became less about Matty and Genna and more about Dante's quest for revenge. As one forbidden romance found some semblance of a happily ever after, albeit a bittersweet one, a second one is born. Despite Dante Galante's questionable health condition, he jumps head first into the organized crime war that he believes claimed the lives of his siblings and that left him near death. The only person he can trust, the only one that gives him an ounce of hope amid all that violence and death and tragedy is Gabriella Russo, the nurse that cared for him in the hospital... a nurse who may not be as removed from la cosa nostra as Dante thinks.
Dante is just delicious. It took me a while to warm up to him, but OH. MY. GOODNESS. once I did, he owned me. He's angry, rightfully so. He's hurting. He's a bit lost. But he's charming, and sexy, and funny, and even though he's a man of few words, the words he chooses are perfectly swoony and so damn effective. I loved Gabriella right from the start. She's a straight shooter, she's a protector, she's fierce but still vulnerable and feminine. I loved everything about her and I loved their dynamic, I loved who they were together. And above all else, I loved this storyline that JM Darhower so perfectly wove together for them. The push and pull, the terrifying yet sensual forbidden nature of their relationship, their unrelenting attraction, the smart banter between them, the secrets and lies of omission that sit quietly waiting to destroy them... I. JUST. LOVED. IT.
This book is everything a decadent, dangerous mafia romance was ever meant to be. Suspenseful. Sexy. Maddening. Romantic. Tragic. Sweet. Sorrowful. It's such a heavy, powerful storyline but it's peppered with unexpected moments of humor and tenderness. All these things swathed together by JM Darhower's lush writing style and captivating, gritty storytelling puts Sweetest Sorrow up there with Sempre and Made as a favorite from this author. I didn't want this book to end and I can only hope the author brings us back into this horrifyingly beautiful world again.
I'm so glad I did because holeesheet.... I LOVE DANTE AND GABRIELLA! Of course I still love Matty and Genna, but come on.... Dante. Such a pig-headed, one-way, bulldog and yet Gabby was able to soften him. She worked her way under his skin and I flipping LOVED their relationship. They are the perfect fit for each other, and I love that their relationship grew from a respect for each other.
We get flashes of Matty and Genna's story as well, and their banter is just as hilarious as always. I love their little adventure and just seeing them outside of New York. You kind of get a "what if" they were normal perspective on their life, and I really enjoyed it.
Gavin. Gavin. Gavin. I am obsessed with Gavin. Is he in her other books, like does he have his own story??!? If so someone please tell me because I need to have read it by now, because I love him. If he doesn't have a story he needs one. He is the glue that holds everyone together, and I could kiss him for it.
This was a nice wrap up to the first story. The war between the families is taken care of, we spend more time with the Jersey family, and there are some hot loves scenes. The writing is flawless, the banter between the characters is witty, and funny. The love stories are so sweet, and the blood and violence is just enough to make it interesting. A great read as per usual!
I'm glad everyone got some closure to this story, but I'm sad that our time spent in this world with these characters is over. Or is it?
