Synopsis: Calisto Donati

Calisto had never been a fan of pain, but he found it provided a certain relief.
It was a high that couldn’t compete with anything else he experienced. That was why he fought bare-knuckled, why he drove fast, despite knowing he might crash, and why he still enjoyed looking at Emma Donati—no matter her current status.
Pain felt good.
He might have been a fool for doing so, but as long as he got what he wanted from it, he didn’t really care.
When he fought, he was given release. When he drove, he was given freedom. When he looked at Emma, he was given memories.
All of them brought a certain level of pain. All three might kill him someday.
Calisto glanced at Emma, taking her in again when she didn’t know he was looking.
He realized then that only one might actually be worth dying for.

Emma Donati

Emma kept her gaze on the book in her lap, pretending like there wasn’t an argument going on across the room. She had become terribly good at acting like she didn’t hear.
Calisto watched her out of the corner of his eye while he argued on with Affonso.
She was too focused on Calisto to care about their fight.
His anger. The tightness of his jaw. Searing soul-black eyes.
The two men were not the same. They might have shared blood, but their hearts were entirely different. One man never let her out of his sight when he was nearby. The other acted like she didn’t exist.
This was what it was like, she realized, to be in love with someone she couldn’t have.
Calisto Donati would never be hers.
This wasn’t a fairy tale that would end happily.
They weren’t star-crossed. They were impossible.

WARNING: The first two books in the Donati Bloodlines Trilogy end on a cliffhanger, the third is a HEA.

REVIEWED BY THE TCOI:

Emmy’s married now. Calisto should forget her, he knows that. However, there are just too many feelings to ignore. Things come to a head, and oh what a thin line it is that they tiptoe around.  Maybe tiptoe isn’t the right word? Well, you’ll have to grab it to find out for yourself.

Even though you get a looming feeling that Emmy and Calisto may never get their happily-ever-after, I’m definitely looking forward to the next book. Between the sexual tension with Calisto and married life to Alfonso, things are getting complicated.  A bit about the past comes to the surface in this installment as well, which is much needed at this point.

All I can say is…Thank you Bethany-Kris for sharing her story with TCOI. The Donati Bloodlines is good series and I’m happy to recommend the read. TCOI received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Synopsis: 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, the third is a HEA.

Thin Lies Teaser 4

REVIEWED BY THE COLOR OF INK

It’s time to do Emmy’s part by marrying a man thirty years older to connect the mob families, at least that is what she is being forced to do. Oh, but it’s more than that. She feels the walls closing in on her. She’s marrying a man she doesn’t want to, and she soon realizes she is going to be watched and followed by whomever her soon-to-be husband wants from here on out.

Cal is the first of her appointed babysitters. He’s good looking and something about him just makes her want to know more. The fact that he doesn’t like his uncle already put a connection there they had not expected, and things pick up the pace from here.

The story flows quite well. The mob background plays a role, but it doesn’t overtake the story. This made the read a lot more enjoyable than others I have read. I really was a great beginning to this story, and I cannot wait to dive into the second book.
