I like my books like my coffee : Hot and Dark.

My reviews might contain heavy spoilers! Read at your very own risk.


ARC was kindly gifted by the author in exchange for an honest review !

Calisto Donati

She was just a woman. That’s what Calisto wanted to tell himself; that’s what he wanted to believe. Emma was nothing more than a woman. There were other women for him to want. To obsess over.
It couldn’t be Emma Sorrento.
Not for Calisto.
She was taken.
She was claimed.
She was not his.
In a few days, Calisto would hand her off, and that would be that. He wondered why it wouldn’t be that easy to let her go. 
What good had saving her done?
He had simply taken her from one monster to give her to another.

Emma Sorrento

Emma slid on her mask. All someone would need to do was look close enough to see what was really beneath the sheer falseness of her smile.
At the other end of the table, Emma found her lies staring her right in the face.
He smirked.
And winked.
Calisto Donati was her worst mistake, her greatest shame, and the one thing she still wanted more than anything. Emma could still feel him all over her, long after his touch and kiss was gone. In thirty days, her entire world had changed—he had changed her.
Emma had a feeling that if she played another game with Calisto, she would surely lose.
She had already lost once.
Wasn’t it enough?

WARNING: The first two books in the Donati Bloodlines Trilogy end on a cliffhanger, and are not considered safe romance.

I'm trying to post this review as close to the release date as possible to avoid eventual spoilers, but damn! It's so hard to keep it for myself! Brand new and amazing mafia series by Bethany-Kris starts with this first book. Thin Lies

Emma is forced to marry Affonso Donati , the head of the Donati family. A man much older than Emma. Until the marriage takes place she is followed everywhere by Calisto, Affonso's nephew . Trapped and disappointed , Emma's only shot to a normal life is to escape from Calisto.
And she does succeed , only now she ends up in an even more obscure world, and in serious danger,
Calisto's time is nearly up, only few days to find Emma and bring her back.

"I left a trail of dead bodies all over Vegas between yesterday and today."

But then duty grows into compassion, attraction and understanding for Emma's needs. One time won't hurt anyone. It was so wrong. She was not his, she was off limits. The passion was stronger than their moral compass.

"Calisto Donati was her worst mistake, her greatest shame, and one thing she still wanted more than anything."

But at the end of the day she was his uncle's fiancee and their love was forbidden.

"He had simple taken her from one monster to give her to another."

"I managed to break every rule I ever followed,[...] my oath to my famiglia, and betrayed my uncle. My actions would defile the church , the vows that I believe in, and my faith."
