I Liked It!
Vendetta is the second book in The DeLuca Family Series and is Frankie and Enzo’s book. We met both of them in Omerta, and we really got to know them in Vendetta.
Frankie and Enzo definitely have a history, if you’ve read Omerta you can tell there is something going on with them, but to what extent, you really don’t know, until Enzo lays it all on the line in this book. With a stalker creeping Frankie out, and the readers being the only ones who know who that person is, and Enzo and Frankie at each others throats for a portion of this book, it makes for some very good reading!
It took me a while to warm up to Frankie in this book. She had started to grow on me in Omerta, but then it was back to square one in Vendetta. The way she treated Enzo and how she refused to hear him out just grated on my nerves at times, but then when we got to see the past and what went down with these two, it finally clicked. I understood why she had walls up against him, and why she behaved the way she did around him. I was glad that these two were forced to work through things and finally communicate because they truly do belong together, I just wish that the circumstances were a lot different, because what brought them together was completely horrible.
Enzo on the other hand, I loved him throughout this entire book. He has always wanted Frankie, and always tried to do what was right. Even when he made promises to others, he tried to keep them while breaking his heart in return. When things got tough, he always had her on his mind, and I loved how he never really gave up on her. He may be a mobster and not the best of guys, but he really does love her and would do anything to keep her safe and have her in his life.
This story isn’t as bloody and gory as Mia and Carlo’s book, but the story is just as intense. I loved how the readers knew who was tormenting Frankie, but no one had a clue who it was, and as the reader you knew this was going to come to a head and it wasn’t going to be pretty. I also really enjoyed seeing Mia and Carlo and watching their relationship continue to progress and watching the family continue to grow. Vendetta was a great addition to this series, and I am really enjoyed this book! I can’t wait to see who’s book is next and what happens next in this crazy mafia world!
