DEFIANCE OF THE HEART (SINS OF THE HEART BOOK 2)
For as long as I can remember, London Sinclair was the boy who was forbidden. It didn’t matter that he made my heart skip a beat. Our surnames fated us to be sworn enemies. But when the truth was finally revealed, my life changed forever.
Lies have shaped our past, leaving London and me to pick up the pieces. But through the chaos, one thing is certain—I love London, and he loves me, and we won’t allow anyone to tear us apart again.
However, life has a funny way of proving us wrong.
As we attempt to make amends for the past ten years, we soon discover that the ghosts of our past will do anything to drive us apart. We are once again surrounded by deceit and betrayal, testing us in ways we never imagined.
When I’m faced with a proposition to end this heartache once and for all, I blindly agree. That decision changes everything, and I soon learn that those who act in haste create their own destruction.
Does love really triumph all? Or will London and I succumb to what was always written in the stars?
That was me reading this. You know there's going to be some angst in a duet that's loosely based on Romeo & Juliet, yet somehow, I was still shocked by how much Ms. James made her characters suffer.
I suffered. I cried. But, then I was happy.
I loved the ending, ....and I am keeping this review short as it's too easy to post a spoiler.
But, I can tell you, read this book. Well, read the first one...then read this one.
You won't regret it.
