Release Blitz with Review: Contempt by A. Zavarelli

April 25, 2023

From USA Today Bestselling Author A. Zavarelli comes an angsty forbidden romance about second chances, forgiveness, and a love that conquers all. 

Contempt by A. Zavarelli is now live! 

Before the world knew me as a rock god, I was just the angry boy who stole her heart.
She was a good girl.
The forbidden fruit I wasn't meant to taste.
Our stars were crossed, and fate had doomed us from the start. 
She was promised to someone else.
I had her secret smiles.
Moments stolen in dark corners.
But I couldn't have her future.
Destiny tore us apart, and all that remained was the ghost of her memory. 
When she died, I did too.
But when I catch a glimpse of her five years later, alive and well, that love turns to hate as the bitter truth emerges.
She left me.
She lied.
And now, I'm going to make her pay.

A. Zavarelli is one of my favorite authors, and this book is a perfect example of why. Contempt was nothing that I expected and everything I didn't know I needed! It grabbed me from the beginning and held on tight until the end. 

If you want the best reading experience possible, do yourself a favor, and go into this one blind. The smallest of details can spoil the whole thing, and a lot of what made this book for me was not knowing what was going to happen next. This isn't a cookie cutter romance. There's a lot going on here, but it all works together perfectly to bring you an entertaining, intriguing, angsty, emotional romance. 

The love this story centers around is complex, complicated, painful, and beautiful. Get ready for the backstories of these characters to have you raging, clutching your heart, and shedding tears. If you're anything like me, you won't be able to stop reading once you start, so make sure you don't begin right before bed unless you're willing to forgo your sleep for the night. 

Overall, Contempt is an intense, forbidden, second chance romance that you don't want to miss. It's full of drama, tragedy, frustration, and mystery. Trying to figure out what's going on and what happened in the past is all part of the fun, so like I said before, don't read reviews, just open the book, and enjoy the ride. 

Forbidden and second chance romance fans, this one's for you!
