SYNOPSIS:
Please note: this is not dark romance.
I am not a good man.
I have lied and cheated and stolen. I've decided between life or death, like it was
my due. None of it matters, not anymore. These are not my sins.
I see her raise her hands, the dark metal she's clutching reflecting the moonlight.
Her finger trembles as she cocks the gun pointed at me. Her eyes are cold,
determined, but I know.
I know her.
My name is Devon Andre and I confess my sin. I am not a good man because this is
the woman I love.
She pulls the trigger.
* Standalone contemporary romance.
* Mature reader advised due to sexual content and strong language.

Review of Vendetta:
VendettaVendetta by Autumn Karr
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.75-4 stars. ARC kindly provided in exchange for a fair and honest review. Spoiler-free review.

I enjoyed this modern day Romeo and Juliet inspired mafia story. After being kidnapped and held hostage at Devon’s family compound – Leighton and Devon fall for each other.  Can they get past deep rooted hatred that their families have for one another? Can these star crossed lovers find a way to make it work?  Vendetta had some great twists and turns that kept me interested.  Overall, I liked this captive/love story….but I didn’t feel the connection between the Devon/Leighton as much as I would have liked. Pretty good first book from the writing team of Autumn Karr.

Excerpt:
I shake my head, muttering another curse. I should have just left her there.
It's not like I have an overwhelming urge to play her knight in shining armor.
God knows she's not a damsel in distress. The woman is poison, like all the
Moores are. Unfortunately, despite what people think about me, I can't stand
men hitting women, and I'm sure as fuck George wouldn't have minded
taking another swing at her. We may be criminals, but we're not complete
assholes.
She moans again as I put her in the backseat of my black SUV and buckle her
in. I round the back, and open up the trunk, looking for something to bind her
with. I shake off the fleeting thought that maybe she
wouldn't fight me. It's
Leighton Moore, for fuck's sake, of course she would.
Fishing out the cable ties, I go back and secure her wrists, then her ankles. It
doesn't seem like enough. I don't want to see her eyes when she wakes up,
which could be any second now, so I remind myself to hurry the fuck up. I
take off the scarf from around her neck, feeling the silk under my fingers for
just a second. Then I pull out my pocketknife, and slice it in half. I blindfold
her, and then gag her with the other half.
At this point I know it’s probably overkill, but I've never kidnapped a woman
before, so who knows? Plus, it's Leighton. She's not just any woman.
Of course I know Leighton Moore. I only wish I didn't.
I knew who she was the first time I laid my eyes on her. It didn’t make any
fucking difference in the grand scheme of things. I was doomed to keep
seeing her and not being able to do anything about it.
Shaking off that thought, I finally get in the car and start it, backing out and
getting the hell away from this place.
When I'm far enough away, I pull over into a secluded woodland area on the
side of the road and just sit there, my car idling. What the fuck do I do with
her? I could take her to my place, I guess, but I'm barely ever there. Most of the time I’m either at my uncle’s house or I’m out, working. I take out my
phone and stare at it, contemplating. I glance back at her, and realize I have
no choice. I have to call my uncle.
