Thin Lines by Bethany-Kris

*5 Myth Nutella jars* 

It was doomed from the start and maybe that's why forbidden love is forbidden for a reason. Two heavy hearts vs family this couldn't be any more tragic this love couldn't be more wrong.

Book two kicks off with the now Emma Donati playing her designated role as the the Don's trophy. Emmy knew it was supposed to be a one time encounter but her heart didn't listen. Fast forward a few months & Emmy realises she more trapped then she could have possibly been, her eyes searched for him even though her heart gave in. Heartbreak after another Emma wasn't ready for the next tidal wave of savagery but she wasn't the only one with a confession , Cosa Nostra were run by men who drank sin for breakfast & Lies for dessert all that deceiving had to catch up one day but not in the way anyone eventuated. 

"They were playing such a dangerous game together. It was deadly. Mistakes were a death sentence."

Calisto Donati a sucker for pain should have walked away , he was good at that but now with his one night staring back at him he just couldn't leave. Distance that's what he thought would work but when his demons come out to play Cal had no where to run. Affonso being the bastard he was wanted something for Cal something that Cal had sworn to never give in, with Emmy always in the back of his mind Cal knew something was bound to happen but what he wasn't expecting was it to be painfully repeatative. Blow after blow Cal was in quick sand not just with Emmy but their was a war waging and the type that wasn't predicted.

"Trust was a beautiful myth in Cosa Nostra."

Affonso guilty , Emma guilty , Calisto guilty , Cosa Nostra guilty and innocent lives guilty. Everyone was drenched in secrets everything was based on lies. 

"We’re all just playing make believe.”

Should have bowed out but that's where the story might get a lot worse. One touch might turn into few in the world of villainous bosses another vice was nothing new.

" Her breath caught in her throat when she heard his knees hit the floor. The moment his mouth met her pussy, Emma let out a shout. She instantly tried to muffle the noise into the crook of her arm. Calisto stopped. Scream for me, Emmy. I need to hear how much you want this. Do you understand that?” Emma nodded, sucking in a quick breath. Rough, fast strokes of his tongue dove between her folds and straight into her clenching pussy. He was hungry.She had suddenly become his meal. "

My Final Thoughts:

I am lost for words. When you read this book obviously you'd be prepared for a huge spectacle or something big at least but nothing and I mean nothing will prepare you for the oncoming heartbreak in this book especially the ending. This book is where secrets get reveled not just Cal & Emmy but from Affonso to a new family that will also get their separate book. One moment you'd think right shit is going to hit the hypothetical ceiling now but you can't predict as to how it'll happen and even if you do somehow guess the way things might pan out its nothing compared to the actual events that take place. Emma as a character has evolved no longer is she the puppet but rather a storm that's ready to wipe everything in its way. Calisto is the swoony worthy alpha he's always proven to be, he's so many kinds of amazing that I'd need a separate review to describe the enigmatic Cal. Affonso *sigh* their isn't enough torture methods in the world to sedate my urge to end the bastard. Father Day first of the name couldn't be better and secondly that's what I call a father not someone whose gonna judge you but someone who puts your mind at ease whilst giving sane advice.

The one main thing I adored is the way book one's ending seamlessly flowed through book 2, at times what I have noticed in some other reads is that the ending of a pervious book & the beginning of the second book of said series are world's apart, but with this everything was exceptionally written and what I appreciate more is that everything was flowing through from the story, Characters and even the numbing ending including finer details were made to bring this heart racing series toward it's impending climax. It's just the starting and once again Bethany has proven she is the reigning Queen when it comes to organised crime in books , I know bold statement but the women does not stop in creating addictive world's with mafia Men galore. She legit has written about more then 9 families and continues to introduce more. This is the book has the sweetness of romance but that doesn't come with out the poisoning corruption of the mafia world, loads of wicked moments with the right amount of hurt this is a series you don't want to miss out on.

Thin Lines

by Bethany-Kris
Donati Bloodlines #2
Publication Date: July 5, 2016
Genres: Adult, Organized Crime, Erotic Romance


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.
