Sempre: Redemption by J.M. Darhower Audiobook Review


A sexy book about two seventeen-year-olds—one a victim of human trafficking; the other the son of the man who enslaved her—who fall in love and question everything they ever believed…

Haven Antonelli and Carmine DeMarco grew up under vastly different circumstances. Haven, a second-generation slave, was 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 and excess.

Now, a twist of fate causes their worlds to collide. 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.

In a world full of chaos, where money and power rule, Haven and Carmine yearn to break free, but a string of events that began before either of them were born threatens to destroy them instead. Murder and betrayal are a way of life, and nothing comes without a price—especially not freedom. But how much will they have to sacrifice? Can they escape their pasts? And, most of all, what does it mean to be free?

Uh... yeah. I was left just breathless and stunned by this book. I simply had to step back and take a minute before I could write this review.

There is so much pain and suffering and hard life that Haven has to deal with, but Carmine's life is so different and he doesn't treat her the way everyone else in her life has.

Normally I don't particularly care for new adult titles as, sadly, I'm well out of that age range myself. However, this story was just so great it really didn't matter. I wanted to slap Carmine on the back of the head for his impulsiveness, but he was so sweet it was hard to hold a grudge.

The way this story twists together to come back around and reveal secrets you didn't even realize were coming was great.

I have to note that the narrator was FANTASTIC, she really, really, really added to this story and brought an element of intrigue to the story so much so that I don't think reading it would've been nearly as good as listening to her reading it to me!
