Thin Lies Cover

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

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
5 Calisto STARS

Holy Hell that went by way too fast!!! If you want a Mafia love story, Bethany-Kris is THE author to go to. Wow, I didn't know this was coming out so imagine my surprise!

This new series is about the Donati family, a smaller outfit in New York . Emma Sorrento is young, beautiful and the niece of a mob boss. We got a peek at the Sorrento's based out of Las Vagas in Kim and Gio's story, Giovanni. Emma has no life. She has no choice. And she certainly has no freedom. She's set to marry the head of the Donati family, Affonso Donati, a man 30 years her senior, in 30 days. Like a prisoner locked up, she has no way to escape or maybe she does?

Calisto Donati is Affonso's consigliere and nephew. Emma's not his. She's taken, off limits but despite the stupidity and recklessness of it all, these two can't stay away from each other.

This was one of the most angst-ridden books I've read by Bethany and damn, it was fucking spectacular!

I loved the build, the forbidden, the longing and lust and the danger. And I abso-fucking-lutely want Calisto Donati!

Calisto's dangerous, ruthless and sexy as all get out. I was seriously in lust and couldn't get enough of him. He's not a good man but even with that, he's got heart and what he does to Emma!

"I want to keep touching just to see if there's a single part of you that doesn't feel like silk underneath my hands. What the fuck did you do to me?"
Nothing, she wanted to say. What could she do to a man like him? She was just a woman. One that didn't belong to him.

The heat between Emma and Calisto is explosive! There's a part in the book that's all kinds of dark, dangerous and wrong but Calisto has to put a show on. Their lives depend on it. And damn, my panties were soaked!! What he does to Emma!!

This book ends on a cliffhanger. Not a shocker but it left me in a spot where I'd seriously do just about anything to get my hands on the next book.

And my gut's telling me that book 2 is going to have my anxiety skyrocketing with the danger, lust and angst!!
