Susi Reviews Made by J.M. Darhower

Made Cover JM Darhower


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.


This book is a prequel to Sempre. Sempre does not have to be read first, but this book contains spoilers from Sempre.


My Review 

Some books just capture the reader and remain with them forever. The Forever Series:  Sempre, Sempre Redemption and now Made have done just that. They have a special place in my heart and my bookshelf.  This series is at the top of my favorites.

Made, the story of Corrado Moretti is an outstanding and exceptional read.  I was so excited when I first learned that J.M. Darhower had written it.  Needless to say, I devoured the ARC when I received it.  You see, Corrado was a character who I didn’t particularly like in Sempre but learned to love in Sempre Redemption.  He was dark and clearly misunderstood. Knowing why he acted the way he did changed my perception of him completely.

Yes, it is true that we grow up and it is our early years, the events we experience, the people around us and our parents who clearly shape who we turn into.  Made chronicles Corrado’s life from his early years with his family, Katrina his sister, his mother,  and especially the role his father played in the man he became.  Throughout the book, readers of Sempre and Sempre Redemption will understand events that were mentioned as J.M. Darhower cleverly depicts them as Corrado lived them.

One of my favorite parts of this book has to be when Corrado and Celia first meet.  True love knows no age.  This love that Corrado and Celia have is strong and is a love like no other. After reading Made, I totally understand this couple.  Their love is unique and they are clearly meant for each other.  Celia is his perfect soul mate.

Learning about the DeMarco family and how Corrado got involved with this Mafia family was enlightening.  Corrado is more that just a member of La Cosa Nostra. He proves to be loyal and so much more to this family and especially to his father in law.

Corrado has a nickname, The Kevlar Killer.  Readers will discover how he got this name.  Throughout this book, characters mentioned in Sempre and Sempre Redemption will come to life.  I especially loved reading about them.

Yes, Carmine and Dominic DeMarco are in this book too.  These two boys are special and having learned about their early years made them even more special to me. I can’t forget to mention Vincent DeMarco.  I had many questions about him and his early years.  Made clearly answers them as well.

I admit, I felt many emotions while reading this book because at times, parts of this story made me relive Sempre and Sempre Redemption.  Books that stir my emotions are the best.  J.M. Darhower has mastered this talent and that’s why I love her books so much.

Thank you J. M. Darhower for writing this book.  Made completed this amazing series.

Just like Corrado fell hard for Celia, I too fell hard for this book.  I totally enjoyed learning about this mysterious and intriguing man.  Corrado did what he did for his family and those he loved .  Corrado is a hero in my eyes.

Made can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend reading it after Sempre and Sempre Redemption because of the plot spoilers.

An ARC was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I gave this book 5 amazing stars!!
