Summary: When it comes to revenge, love is a dangerous complication.With a fierce rivalry raging between two warring families, falling in love is the deadliest thing Sophie could do. An epic debut set outside modern-day Chicago.
When five brothers move into the abandoned mansion in her neighbourhood, Sophie Gracewell’s life changes forever. Irresistibly drawn to bad boy Nicoli, Sophie finds herself falling into a criminal underworld governed by powerful families. As the boys’ dark secrets begin to come to light, Sophie is confronted with stinging truths about her own family, too. She must choose between two warring dynasties – the one she was born into, and the one she is falling in love with. When she does, blood will spill and hearts will break.
Well, I seriously enjoyed this book. In fact, I loved this book. Action-packed and yet mysterious at the same time. The cover and pages themselves are beautiful and the writing within is too. The whole idea is great and Nic sounds amazing (apart from the obvious problem which you would know if you’ve read the book). I seriously cannot wait to get my hands on the rest of this series…
After receiving it as a Goodreads giveaway, I was uncertain of how high I should set my standards. Each page was a new gateway into this book and I found myself finishing the book quickly. Additionally, my friends heard me raving about it and have already bagsied it next. Sam has it at the moment and hopes to read it soon.
Overall, a beautifully-written book by an author who by the rate that this book is getting popular, shall become the next big-thing and I have to say that I’m honoured to have read this book before it will. I see this becoming the next Twilight/Hunger Games, a big series which will probably be made into a big movie franchise. Can’t wait for the next book. It’s books like this that remind me why reading is so great.
