Corrado Moretti.

The world knows the notorious Kevlar Killer, but few have ever seen what lies beneath his armor. The abused child. The neglected teenager. The broken man. He always did whatever he had to do in order to survive.

It’s kill or be killed.

Throughout his life, he has been there in the shadows, a witness to everything from beginning to end. Bound by loyalty and honor, there’s only one thing he would sacrifice it all for: family.

Never get close. Never get attached. It’s a lesson that has been brutally pounded into him since childhood, but they’re words the DeMarcos make it difficult for him to follow. Through them he finds love and grieves loss, realizing the world isn’t quite as black and white as it’s made out to be.



Corrado Moretti, cold hearted notorious Mafia man that we met in Sempre and Sempre Redemption. This is the story of his life,
divided into 5 parts from his childhood to present day.

From page 1, I was captivated. We learn of his childhood and his relationship with his father Vito, a Made man who is out of Corrado’s life more than he is in it. And then there is his mother and twin sister, who are too awful for words and who eventually drive Corrado to Chicago. The only happy time in his childhood is when he spends a few months with the DeMarco family, where he meets carefree Celia and Vincenzo. When he is 17, he leaves home with Vito, where he first encounters The Boss, Antonio DeMarco.

He hasn’t seen her for 7 years, but when he meets Celia again he knows he would do anything to keep her happy – she is his light, in his dark world. Celia is a strong and headstrong woman and even the fact that her father is the Boss and is forbidding them to date isn’t going to stop her getting what she wants.

I don’t think I have swooned so much in a book, the words were just perfect and the love between these two was the most beautiful thing I have ever read. My highlighter was working overtime.

We journey through all their troubles, with Corrado fighting to become a Made man, his relationship between him and Vincent, the dark underworld and all of the elements that make him the man he is. We also get to live through the story of Vincent and Maura, which was a major factor in Sempre and Sempre Redemption.

This is without a doubt my most favourite read of 2014 and it fills my heart with joy just thinking about it. Bravo to J.M. Darhower for a fantastic series that will stay with me forever.
