Cover Thoughts: It’s fun, not my favorite but I’m grateful that all three books look the same and don’t have any cover changes THANKFULLY!
A blood war rages on the streets of Chicago.
Protected by an infamous mafia family, Sophie is living a dangerous lie, pretending to lead a normal life. But the deceit can’t last for ever. Her heart belongs to a killer and Sophie’s the prime target of a rival clan. She’s determined to seek revenge on her mother’s murderers, but can she pay the price – can she be a mafiosa?
The third and final instalment in the explosive YA Blood for Blood series which started with Vendetta and Inferno.
Its getting to a point that unless the book is phenomenal I usually will put the book off to the side till the series it completely out and then eventually get back and read them all. However this is a trilogy I’ve loved since the beginning and have read every book the moment I could get my hands on it. I’ve ordered the first and last book off of BookDepository.com because it wasn’t on Amazon yet so I had to wait a little long to get this 3rd book and it was well worth the wait.
If you haven’t read book one or two well now you can just plow right through all three and trust me, you’ll love every book! AH!
This series is one of the FEW contemporary books I REALLY enjoyed, usually I’ll stick to fantasy or paranormal or dystopian but this somehow caught my attention and I’ve wanted it since I heard about it. BOOM! I know I’m rambling but this is me telling you how good it is.
I love the world building and the families and the history behind it all, I loved the twists and turns of the story even though the ending was and was not surprising. However I’m still very pleased with the ending and how it’s all played out.
The character development was fantastic! You’ve got innocent Sophie who’s life has been turned upside down and she’s lost, angry, confused, hurt, sad and so it’s been so fun to watch her change and grow slowly which I so appreciate. Same with Luca….well he mostly stayed the same which I appreciate because guys just don’t change overnight…trust me, I’m married haha Nic you see him as one way in book one and watch him change and your opinion change through out the trilogy same with Valentino and other side characters.
There is still plenty of humor and romance to go around that lightens this dark tale of revenge and mafia history between families…is it really like that? yikes!
Overall: This was a GREAT ending to the trilogy, I don’t think I really have any complaints! I can’t wait to see what more this author has up her sleeve!
