People interested in things that are mafia related and suspenseful, not to mention impossible romance.
I simply DEVOURED this book. The whole premise was new to me, I've never even watched the Sopranos, so going into this crime family drama I had no idea what to expect. Luckily it was broken to me gently which actually caused me to feel as shocked as Sophie did when certain facts came to light.
The Romeo and Juliet aspect didn't make sense to me till about half way through the book but by that point I was already smitten with Nic. I felt Sophie's heartbreak right along with her. I'm hoping for a happily ever after for them but I'm not sure it will happen. I'm also kind of hoping Sophie gets accepted into the life of the mafia and becomes bad ass....does that make me bad??
I know there are still twists to come and facts that have yet to be revealed but that just adds to the anticipation for the next book. I'm really hoping it keeps me guessing like Vendetta did, it makes reading it so much more fun when I can't guess what is going to happen.
