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 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.
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.
My Review :
Thank you so much IndieSage PR for sending me a copy of Thin Lies!! I’m very honored and extremely grateful!! 🙂
5 Thrilling and Forbidden Stars!!
The cover alone is something so beautiful but what’s on the inside is even better. Gosh, i didn’t expect so many twists and turns that left me speechless. I didn’t expect to fall for two of the characters as easily as i did either. Being thrust into a world of crime, lies, secrets, lust, and the mafia was nothing short of a thrill ride. When a book brings out anger and hate in me i highly enjoy it because that means it’s getting to me and that in turn means i’m fully understanding the story. Ms.Kris is an amazing writer and her words made me feel as if i was the heroine and i could feel every single emotion coming through the pages. She not only impressed me with this book she left me wanting more and i cannot wait for the next book. The waiting is worth it in the end of course and after that ending i’m sure the next one will be just as incredible as this one!!
Emma Sorrento was a character who had everything in her life decided for her with no questions asked. In her world La famiglia meant everything and even though some people in hers were only doing what they so selfishly wanted to do with her life she still loved them especially her mother. She was kind to others who showed kindness to her but she was not one to go down without a fight. Being spoiled for so many years didn’t lessen her true feelings nor intentions in life. I felt sorry for her so many times throughout the story and i couldn’t help but want to take her out of the situation that she was in. Emma hid a fire beneath her eyes and the determination when she unleashed it was all too powerful. I thought she was a fantastic heroine and the growth of her as a character was something that was so awesome to see.
Calisto Donati was a character who had been thoroughly lied to throughout his life mainly by his conniving uncle. He was strong and held a strong air about him no matter who was in his presence. He was more than meets the eye and his tough exterior did nothing to lessen my adoration for him as a character. I was so stinking happy that he got his own point of view and i could read every single emotion that he went through. Even though he showed arrogance towards others like Emma he was actually using that only to his advantage as to not let others see what was going on in that mind of his. Calisto was everything that is sinful and sexy in this world. He wasn’t the usual type of charming he was dangerous and that made him even more of an exciting character.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a read that will leave your head spinning and your heart racing until the very last page! It was all sorts of sexy and mysterious! You will be sucked into a world that isn’t always bright and can be dark as well as gritty but it’s worth the leap into it. If you haven’t already picked up this book and it sounds like it’s right up your alley, What are you waiting for? One-click it today and get lost in the darkness of an engaging story! You won’t regret it!! 5 Stars all around!! 🙂 PS: that music playlist below ROCKS!!
