Haven Antonelli and Carmine DeMarco had vastly different childhoods. Haven, a second-generation slave, grew up isolated in the middle of the desert, her days full of hard work and terrifying abuse. Carmine, born into a wealthy Mafia family, lived a life of privilege, never having to answer for anything he did.
Both now seventeen, a twist of fate causes their worlds to collide, making them question everything they ever believed. Entangled in a web of secrets and lies, they learn that while different on the surface, they have more in common than anyone would think.
5 out of 5 Stars
Sempre is one of those books that are hard for me to review, I could go on and on but I would ruin so much of what makes reading the story so enjoyable. The best way I can describe Sempre is The Godfather meet Romeo and Juliet YET BETTER. Obviously, I have put reading this one off for a while, I just didn't know if it would be something i could enjoy, so when I saw it on Netgalley I jumped at the chance to give it ago. It was intense, sweet, funny, and scary all at once it was everything I could have ever asked for and more. Carmine and Haven are the last people we would ever expect to be together yet they seemed to fit perfectly, but their road isn't an easy one, and it just gets rougher as the days go by. Now I read a review copy so I any issues I had most likely aren't in the final copy that is for pre sale, and my only issue isn;t even that big of a deal just got confused a few times when POVs changed but nothing that really took away from the story. I am SOOOO happy to have finally enjoyed Sempre and I am 100% on board with all the buzz I have seen about it and CAN NOT wait for the next book!
