Series Sunday: Sempre Redemption

(Forever #2)

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author and series name.

"This boy—this stubborn, selfless, stupid boy—had given himself to the mafia. He handed control of his future over to the men they hated most in exchange for her life. For her safety." ~ pg.7

My Series Sunday pick is Sempre Redemption, the second book in the Forever series by J.M. Darhower. Young lovers Carmine and Haven are trying to keep their relationship in tact while tangled in the mafia ring. In order to save Haven, Carmine had to swear his loyalty to the mafia. Uh oh! Meanwhile, Haven discovers her worth.

Another 500+ page novel! I like big books and I cannot lie (♬ cue Sir Mix-a-Marie ♬). I so appreciate the author wrapping up the story in two books and not dragging it out in a trilogy, which is the latest literary trend. Sempre Redemption is the book that never ends and I'm not sure I wanted it to. Although it was not as good or intense as the first book in the series.

As a reminder, Darhower encourages us to become abolitionists against human trafficking. You have to love fiction with a cause! As a message to the author: keep slinging words and prove your writing is worth reading.
