Love that the story is presented with a duel point of view so we as readers got to experience both perspectives. Only a grammar error or two, so nothing to distracting from the story. Loved the tender passion between Devon and Leighton! A few good bedroom scenes, that fit well into the story adding to it and not cheapening the content or story.
I give Vendetta 5 stars even though its a classic plot line I loved reading it!

I didn't fall in love with Devon or Leighton so much, because it felt as if the story wasn't written to rally towards their happy ending. But you like them and want to see where their story goes, there wasn't an abundant of sex in the story but the few scenes that are in the story are hot.
I really enjoyed this story, it is the kind of book that now that you understand exactly what's going on you want to pick it up and read it again! I hope to read more from Autumn and Sienna!!
I like the "forbidden lovers" trope; but I really didn't feel any great connection between Devon and Leighton.
SPOILER: When the story opened they already had a history with each other and deep feelings had developed. I get the "lust at first sight" and adolescent crush concept; but how that had supposedly turned into love when they'd barely spoken 2 words to each other was a little befuddling. END SPOILER.
I did like both lead characters. Leighton was a fairly strong heroine who made a respectable effort to save herself instead of sitting around waiting for the cavalry to come and Devon was a decent guy (for a drug running Mafioso).
The twists and turns, and the who's stabbing who in the back in the organized crime world was more prevalent towards the second half of the book and was fairly interesting.
So all in all, for me: entertaining but nothing to write home about.
Devon Andre and Leighton Moore both come from Mob families, but rival families. This is the only life they have known, survive or perish. When Leighton is caught snooping on a deal she is kidnapped by Devon. Devon’s family puts him in charge of her, and ending her. But that isn’t the end of their story.
This had a great deal of drama and suspense, but this was a slow start for me, most of the first half of the book is based on Leighton being captive in one room. However, just a little past the halfway mark this really began to build and then there is a twist. The twist isn’t what I expected and while it was a good one, I was left confused, I had to go back a page or two to make sure I hadn’t missed something. Had that piece been presented earlier in the book, I feel like I would have been more in tune to what was going on. From that point on I was really pulled to the story.
Here is what really got me hooked, the drama and suspense, and crime of the story really worked for me once it started to build and some super hot scenes. I really appreciated the standalone aspect, in that there wasn’t a brutal cliffhanger, I couldn’t have taken that. The ending could end there, or there could be another spin on the story if desired.
Finally, here is what didn’t work for me. I wish there was more of an emotional background with the main characters; I could have connected with them more if I had that. Like I said prior, I really appreciated the twist in the story, but the way it was thrown in there was a bit confusing.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a semi dark romance story, with some drama, and crime, but this is recommended for 18 and over only. It was a good story and I enjoyed the read, I just wished the layout of the timeline was altered slightly. I see a lot of promise coming from both authors, and I am curious to read more of their work.
I loved this book. I loved the conflicted characters. I loved their journey. Leighton find herself in a bad shot. She is kidnapped by Devon who is from a rival family. This is where their story begins. It's a beautiful journey. The love and passion it's palpable on every page. I didn't want this book to end.
