Five++ grandi bellissime stelle!!

I was two percent into this book and I was immediately hooked. From that point on, it just kept getting better and better. After reading this book, I just wanted to flip back to the first page and just re-read it. This was a brilliantly told story. It was story about two very damaged individuals, finding comfort and happiness with each other. Despite their very different upbringings, all the sufferings, all the sacrifices, the involvement of the Mafioso & despite all the violence, Carmine & Haven's story outshined it all.

Colpo di fulmine. The thunderbolt, as Italians call it. When love strikes someone like lightning, so powerful and intense it can't be denied. It's beautiful and messy, cracking a chest open and spilling their soul out for the world to see. It turns a person inside out, and there's no going back from it. Once the thunderbolt hits, your life is irrevocably changed.

Yep. That's exactly what this story did for me. It's intense. It's tragic. It's beautiful. I LOVE it. Per sempre.

Not at all, Rhonda. I needed another person to tell me to get my butt in gear. I do have a tendency to freak out at a story's climax. lol. I need my HEAs darn it! LOL.


Rhonda Tessamari, I totally loved this book. One of my very favorites. I can't wait for more.

Maria Yayyyyyyyyyyyy!!! So happy you loved it, see keepin your panties on was definitely a good idea huh?! We knew you would be gloriously happy with the ending. Would it not make an Amazing Movie?

OMG! It would make a great movie or better yet, an HBO series. lol. I did like the ending, but I wish there was an epilogue or something. Like I wanted to know what happens to Carmine's Uncle Corrado, or even his dad. There were a few holes, but I loved it anyway.

I felt the same way, but I had read that interview before I read the book, so I felt like she left loose ends for that reason.

Maria I loved Vincent!!

Ditto! He's completely honorable and the love he has for Maura is beautiful. However, did you girls figure out who was his booty call? It was right before he went to the gravesite. I found it kinda strange. :-/
