BLOG TOUR: Vendetta – Autumn Karr & Sienna Lane + Review, giveaway, teasers + excerpt!

Released: December 15th, 2013

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.

"There are no innocents in our world. We are born tainted."

Intriguing yet intense. With Devon's sweet charms and broken life and Leighton's strength and snarkiness, this book was definitely an enjoyable read for me. The plot itself I thought could've been developed better but the ending? Flawless. The plot twist in the end just blew my mind. This isn't your dark romance like Tears of Tess but it's well-written and brings alive the idea of two families at war, blood for blood, and two lovers trapped right in the middle of it.

Holy crap. I was so excited when I first read the blurb for Vendetta. I've never heard of the authors before so I thought, "Hey! Fresh, new writing!" I really was so excited to read this that I ended up with such high expectations. And we all know how high expectations usually end up.

It started out pretty well, pretty intense. But, in the middle, I kind of got lost of the purpose of the whole thing. It really was such a great read especially with the captivating characters. However, I adored the beginning and the end, not so much the middle.

Devon's character was complicated. He was in love with a woman whom his people wanted to murder. If it wasn't for Devon, Leighton would be dead in the hands of the Andres. Although his mood swings were quite extreme, I really liked him.
"I'm not a good man, Leighton, I'm not a hero. I brought you here. Me."
God knows I love a man who can admit his faults.

Then Leighton. Holy crap.

She is one tough, badass chick. When Devon first put her in her room, she found a fucking mirror and made a weapon out of it. Even Devon didn't suspect that.

Up top, girl! 

Anyway, the book really was a great read. It wasn't that disappointing. I loved the storyline and the ending and the characters, it's just the content that made me a bit disheartened. Otherwise, a great read, most definitely recommended!




Vendetta ♕
The teaser graphics for Vendetta are fucking gorgeous! Take a look below:
"Don't think, Devon," I say, standing up and pulling it over my head, dropping it aside. I walk backwards to my bed and undo the clasp of my bra, letting it dangle on my finger and then fall to the ground. I take my sweatpants off, leaving me in nothing but my panties. When he doesn't say anything, doesn't tell me to stop, I sit down on the bed and watch him.

The heat in Devon’s gaze, the intensity in his expression makes me feel like I’m the sexiest girl in the world. He stands up slowly, and walks over to me, his eyes still connected with mine. He gets down on his knees, so his face is almost level with mine. I watch as he takes his fill of me, a soft curse escaping his lips as his gaze touches my breasts.

“I don’t want you,” he says hoarsely, but there’s no fight left in his voice. My breathing hitches as I wait for him to finally touch me. 

I don’t dare speak. Putting my palm on his cheek, I decide to make the first move since he won’t. Bringing his face closer to my body, I gasp when his tongue finally peeps out and slowly traces over one nipple, and I know that he’s decided to give in. He pulls my nipple into his mouth, sucking gently, and then running his teeth over it. I squirm under his touch, wanting more.

His mouth releases its torturous hold on my breast and trails wet kisses up my chest, my shoulder and my neck. By the time he reaches my mouth, I can feel how damp my panties are, and my thighs are trembling. He swipes his tongue across my lips, begging entrance. He kisses me hungrily, delving into my mouth, tasting me. He pushes me back onto the bed with the force of his body, grinding his hips into mine. I feel his erection pressing into me, and it gets me even more excited. Grasping my wrists in his hand, Devon lifts my hands above my head and presses them into the mattress. His other hand traces from my temple, over my cheek and jawline, and finally rests on my neck. Pulling his mouth away, he rests his forehead against mine, his breathing as heavy as my own.

“I don’t fucking want you,” he says desperately.

“Devon,” I gasp out when he starts slowly moving against me, our clothes the only barrier between us. He instantly jumps away from me, his expression closing off. He throws a disgusted glance my way as he stands up and takes two steps back, leaving me bare and vulnerable.

Then he turns his back on me and leaves.
