I didn’t know she was a detective, the only daughter of the Chief of Police.
I didn’t know he was a mafia Prince, heir to the Tyrell’s bloody empire.
It was only supposed to be one night.
God help me, I can’t stop thinking about that night.
So, when she walked into the interrogation room my heart almost stopped.
I can’t believe he might have tortured and killed someone.
I have to avoid her at all costs.
I will be his downfall.
So begins a deadly game of cat and mouse, of blood and lust, of love and duty, and of an attraction so fierce the consequences are inevitable…

Inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, this is a retelling for mature audiences. Don’t enter the Underworld if you’re scared of the dark.

How good was Love Sprung From Hate, you might ask? It was freaking fantastic! From the opening scenes I was pulled into this world as Julianna and Roman's story unravelled, and I could see that they had insane chemistry. It was packed with action, suspense, intensity and a few sizzling scenes that will hook the reader into wanting more.

Julianna was a detective, and Roman was the youngest son of the Tyrell Mafia Empire. I could feel how attracted Julianna and Roman were to one another, as they spent one unforgettable night together. I loved seeing how passionate they were, and the soul deep connection that they shared, and that they were reluctant to part ways. However, forces outside of their control brought them together again and they had to face each other from opposite sides, while trying to hide the connection that they have for one another.

I was quite impressed with Love Sprung From Hate, it left a lasting impression on me and it established the perfect base to the Dark Romeo series. I was able to see Julianna and Roman together, and also a glimpse into both of their worlds. I devoured the book quickly, and was swept away in Sienna Blake's fabulous story telling. I enjoyed her picturesque descriptions so it felt I was right there seeing what was going on. I enjoyed the how the story became intense and built up... to leave me craving the next book! Bring on July, I CANNOT wait!

*** Swoon Thursday was first bought to us by YA Bound. Since they are no longer with us, and with permission from Trisha Wolfe, I have decided that those of us that love to swoon need a central meet up point.  So here it is ladies! I have a link up for everyone at the bottom of the post you can add your swoons to, and I’ll set it up every week! So tell all other swooners out there to come on over, link up so we can visit each other! ***

Two swoons today, the feeling of a kiss, and some sexy flirting!!

I needed her. I knew she could feel what she was doing to me. Her mouth parted as she sucked in a breath. Those fucking lips, so plump and inviting, so pink and juicy. I needed those lips.
I closed my mouth on hers before I knew what I was doing. She was soft, so fucking soft, as I sucked on her bottom lip.

“At this rate, we won’t get to your hotel room,” I complained half-heartedly. I wasn’t kidding.
“Whose fault is that?” he said, his hands still roaming my body, threatening to tip me over into a full-blown distraction.
“Yours. Stop kissing me like that—”
“Stop being so kissable.”
“—and touching me like that.”
“Stop being so sexy.”
