***** 4 Stars *****

Cannot be read as a standalone

The story about Lexi and Lucca continues! After the dangers and issues at home, the couple go to Tuscany for safety. Lexi and her mother struggle with their traumatizing past, but Lucca helps them out of the darkness. Lucca is the perfect man, and he knows how to melt your heart.

There were some areas where I felt like the story could have been condensed. But overall, I enjoyed the story. I can't wait for the next book.

I was given an ARC of this in exchange for an honest review and I gave it five MASSIVE stars for being so bloody epic!!!

Lucca and Lexi are back in Luminoso: book four of the Luminara series and what a read! It has been an absolute pleasure following their journey together from the dark into the light. Luminoso was my highly anticipated release of 2015 and i had high expectations and S.J Molloy did not disappoint in this bomb shell of a book!

Received this book as an ARC and this is an honest review.

SJs maturity in writing has exponentially expanded and this has become one of my favourite reads this year. It's the 4th book in the series about Lexi and Lucca who both have had troubled experiences in their pasts. They become a couple and bring each other into the light! It's a love story that highlights what can happen when you truly meet your soul mate even though there is darkness in your past which is attempting to bring you down a

Holy freakin fantastic hell! What a ride this one is! First, read the series in order, the first 3 are available in a box set and it is well worth it. Luminosa - takes us back into the story a bit and then brings us full circle with Lexi and Lucca growing closer, Lexi dealing with her unplanned pregnancy and trying to deal with life hiding from her obsessed step-brother trying to find her and affecting her entire support system of family and friends.

This book was received from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Luminoso is Book 4 in The Luminara Series, and a continuation of Lexi Robertson and Lucca Caruso’s story. Luminoso is not a standalone, so I highly recommend reading the series in order for continuity, story flow and development.

Boy, was this story a heart wrencher! There were incredible highs and unthinkable lows. We learn so much more about Lexi’s childhood and the unbearable hell she and her mother and brother endured, wh

This is the continuation of Lexi and Lucca’s journey, and what a rollercoaster of a journey it is! Everything has been going so well for them both, and now everything is turned back upside down. Lucca will go to any lengths to protect his family and keep them safe. Lexi is hiding from an obsessed Michael.
This story is emotional, heartbreaking, with happiness, and revenge. This author has once again done a remarkable job in writing this story, and I was enthralled and intrigued throughout. It is

This fourth instalment of Lucca and Lexi's story is just as wonderful to read as the the last three. It does contain references to physical and sexual abuse. But is done in away that's for the continuation of the story and to explain reactions to situations. It's not describe in great detail but enough and in flashes that help the story. Don't be put of by this in the main it's a beautiful messed up live story. Of two people destined to find each other. It's a meaty read, by that I mean if you w ...more

Book 4 Luminoso by SJ Molloy of The Luminaria Series is due to be released on 27 October 2015, the next instalment of the Lexi and Lucca story. This is a definite recommended read for 2015, if you are not familiar with their story to date the first three books are on offer as a box set at a cost of £0.99 on Amazon, well worth the read.

Book 1 – Lussaria
Book 2 – L’amore
Book 3 – Lucca’s Lust

I have to say that I was blown away by the latest book in this series

Shelves: yum-o
Alright so here's the deal-o ya'll this is the 4th book that again describes the all consuming love affair between the scrumptious hero Lucca and his light o love Lexi. Fantastic amorous escapades, and humorous dialog, I adore the way the author portrays the family and friends coming together as a whole and their undying support for each other.

That being said I am really very very bored of reading about the same old couple and the every day life they live. About 30% of this story is nothing but

Lexi and Luccas story is one of the greatest love stories ever written. It's about dark pasts and a bright future. No matter what obstacles they may face their light, and their love conquers all. It's definitely an emotional story that will keep you on the edge of your seat. SJ Molloy did an amazing job bringing certain details into the light. Luminoso left me utterly speechless. By far my favorite book series ever. Can not wait for the conclusi

An emotional read

Book 4 had everything in it. Romance, passion, anger, danger. This was a rollercoaster of a story, very emotional. From Lucca doing everything in his power to keep his family safe and out of harms way, for most of the storyline. To Lexi, who I think grew as a stronger character.
There were also some very interesting stories happening in the background, I look forward to seeing the direction these characters go. I look forward to the next in the series.

It was almost hard labor to read this book. After 4 books, I really can't stand Lexi. I sympathize with all she has been through but I really can't find much to like about her other than her caring for the elderly neighbor. Lucca on the other hand is handsome, charming and really deserves a medal for putting up with Lexi. It's just amazing that he hasn't walked away. It's se*, then psychological trauma.. repeat, repeat repeat. Tiresome.

Over the series, SJ Molloy’s writing has grown and so has the haracters. Lucca more protective towards Lexi. Their love has grown as well and they are even more passionate and intimate.

the story flows as it follows the familes, how lexi and lucca grow both as a couple and individually. Lexi becomes stronger and fights more for what she loves.

Make no mistake this book is even more of a emotional rollar coaster than the others. For you go through their dark history and especially Lexi and her fami

She did it again another fantastic book in the Luminara series.

Following on the story of Lucca and Lexi who have had troubled pasts seeing there love expand and helping each other from the dark to the light has been brilliant.

A truly unique love story written with passion and such emotional sensitivity. SJ Molloy is such an exceptional author.

The story tells of the past and the present of Lucca's and Lexi's lives how they have amazing families who show so much support. How

OMG!!!!! I laughed, I cried (well balled like a baby) and really wanted to hurt someone, aka Michael Parks…
Lucca and Lexi have a strong bond, but all the tension between them knowing that Michael Parks is still free and out to get Lexi is definitely taking its toll on everyone.
This entire series has been a complete rollercoaster of emotions, but this book definitely had the biggest impact. You could feel what was going on, especially towards the end (but you will have to read it to find that ou

Beyond Amazing are the only words I can find to properly describe what this book is. Luminoso is the 4th installment in the Luminara series. In this book we follow along as Lexi and Lucca adjust to life with all kinds of new events going around them. Even though we would wish for life to finally settle down and have them live a happy and calm life, that is not the case. The past has come back to haunt them. In this book we learn more in depth of

This is a Tragic Love Story. Full of Heart and Soul. Lucca and Lexi will show you just how far they will go for the Love of each other.

This is the 4th instalment is The Luminara Series and is one hell of a emotional roller coaster!! In this book alot of the gaps are filled in regarding the past and the great escape. It provides a excellent bridge from the previous 3 books to where the story can go next. I don't want to say too much and ruin it for any future readers. I am usually a quick reader but with this book I had to take my time to take it everything that I was reading and the emotions that came with it. I l

For me thus has been the best book out of the four, so far. Without giving anything away, this story just goes from strength to strength. Lucca and Lexi have hurdle after hurdle to jump but with the love of one another they somehow always seem to amaze me.

This book is full of emotion. Yes, it also had a few bits that had me laughing. Mr. Carlin, Hazel and Doris just keep the humour alive.

I have been on an emotional rollercoaster reading this book, but now I can't wait to get my hands on book 5

Luminoso is book 4 in the Luminara series. Lexi and Lucca's journey continues. Can they pull each other out of the dark and into the light? Things seem to be going too well for a couple of months then Lexi's world is turned upside down. Will Michael get caught or will he continue to live in the shadows. I absolutely love this series.

Gambit of emotions

SJ Molloy really knows how to take us through the gambit of emotions with her books. I went from anger to sadness to joy to every other emotion you can come up with. I felt like I was there with Lexi and Lucca, going through each drama, each celebration, each fight, each everything. I've always thought SJ was an amazing author and she just proves it again with this book. I can't wait for book 5, the conclusion of Lexi and Lucca's story.
Feb 07, 2016 Janka rated it really liked it
Another fantastic continuation of Lucca and Lexi's story. This one is all about Lexi's pregnancy. The love between them is so real and almost touchable. Even though sometimes Lucca is very over protective and overbearing and I want to slap him back to reality. We go through their up and downs and of course plenty of drama. Tragedy struck and I was kept on my toes till I got through it and got to the end. Now I want to know how this series ends !!
