{Review} Sempre (Forever #1)

sempre cover

Sempre (Forever 1) by J.M. Darhower

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I’ve been sitting here most of the day wondering what to writing for this review. My head is still lost in it. There is so much happening in Sempre, yet it all flows perfectly from start to finish. There was nothing I didn’t like about it.

Sempre follows the growing relationship between Haven and Carmine, while dealing with the pressures that life is throwing at them. Nothing is ever easy for them and being in the middle of the Mafia war doesn’t make it any easier either.

Every “I hate you” that echoed from her chest was followed by an “I love you” from his lips. Every time she begged him to let go, he told her he would be there forever

Haven is one strong female lead. How she managers to deal with everything that has happened to her is beyond me. Most people would have given up. But Haven believes that there is still hope out there and the future could be better. No has to be better than the hand she was dealt with at birth.

On the other hand, Carmine has the world at his feet yet chooses to throw it all away for nothing. He just seems to be floating through life from day to day. Enjoying the good things, but never really taking anything for granted. Carmine doesn’t start to live until he has something to fight for, something worth losing. Haven is his heaven.

“Colpo di fulmine. The thunderbolt, as Italians call it. When love strikes someone like lightning, so powerful and intense it can’t be denied. It’s beautiful and messy, cracking a chest open and spilling their soul out for the world to see. It turns a person inside out, and there’s no going back from it. Once the thunderbolt hits, your life is irrevocably changed.”

Together they make each other more than just an empty shell. However not everyone is happy with their relationship and soon the danger begins. Everyone wants something from Haven and Carmine. Can they survive it all and still love each other just as deeply. Read more to read out.

It must be noted that this is not a book for everyone. There are some dark and disturbing themes involved in the story. However I feel that the story might fall a little flat without them.
