My rating: 5 of 5 stars
5 “At the end, Emmy.” STARS
The third and final book in the Donati Bloodlines Series was simply fantastic. From the very beginning, Bethany-Kris captured the intensity and raw emotion of a truly unforgettable forbidden love story.
"Did love justify suffering? Would it ever justify pain?"
Calisto Donati and Emma were a dirty and dangerous secret. Lives would be shattered, blood would be shed and some may even be killed if their secret was ever discovered.
“I keep hoping…”
“For something impossible.”
“Nothing is impossible, Emma.”
This book picks up from the heart-wrenching cliff hanger of book 2. I felt every ounce of Emmy’s fear, longing and despair as she tried to protect her unborn child, while hoping against everything that Cal would figure things out.
“Her life felt so thin – it only became thinner with every passing day.”
And for Calisto, his turmoil and frustration was real and raw. Seriously, my heart ached throughout a good two thirds of this book.
Emotions were high, danger was palpable and hope was only a glimmer as Emma and Calisto navigate the treacherous pathways of La Cosa Nostra.
“She loved the way he touched her, and how he never handled her like glass. She loved his roughness, his harsh breaths in her ear, and the heat that pulsed between them.”
This was all kinds of fantastic. I FLOVED the Epilogue and the freakin' bread crumbs for the future generation. Bethany, you're a tease. I want the Legacy Series NOW!! And I'm calling it from now, Cross Nazio Donati is mine! #Claimed!
