Goodreads Summary:
Blood Will Spill, Hearts Will Break: With a fierce rivalry raging between two warring families, falling in love is the deadliest thing Sophie could do. An epic debut set outside modern-day Chicago.

For Sophie, it feels like another slow, hot summer in Cedar Hill, waitressing at her family’s diner and hanging out with her best friend Millie. But then someone moves into the long-abandoned mansion up the block--a family of five Italian brothers, each one hotter than the last. Unable to resist caramel-eyed Nicoli, Sophie finds herself falling for him -- and willfully ignoring the warning signs. Why are Nic's knuckles cut and bruised? Why does he carry an engraved switchblade? And why does his arrogant and infuriating older brother, Luca, refuse to let her see him? As the boys' dark secrets begin to come to light, Sophie is confronted with stinging truths about her own family, too. Suddenly, she's torn between two warring dynasties: the one she’s related to and the one she's now in love with. She'll have to choose between loyalty and passione. When she does, blood will spill, hearts will break. Because in this twisted underworld, dishonor can be the difference between life and death.
  
This sounds like a great rivalry love story! I love the layout of the cover - the vintage look of the pictures and the way the heart is set in the middle with cracks in the background.

What are you guys waiting on this week?

  2. That girl is on a lot of covers (When by Victoria Laurie and Torn Away by Jennifer Brown off the top of my head). I do like the cover though. The book sounds really good, too. I'm waiting for approval from Edelweiss for it, too. Release date is getting close though. I've never been turned down by them beforr, so we'll see. Great pick!

  8. Great choice! I've totally been wanting to read more books that have an organized crime/mafia plot. This one sounds amazing and I love that it's a Romeo and Juliet retelling. I'm hoping to check it out as part of my retellings month in February.
