5 BELLO Stars
Well, I must say that I think Ms. Kris saved the best for last. Dante Marcello, the heir apparent/up and coming Don of the Marcello Cosa Nostra – his story was fantastic!
Both Lucian and Gio’s love lives were easy -not saying there weren’t issues – but rather they fell in love easily. Whereas Dante is not interested in love, “Love complicates shit”, he has nothing to offer a woman. He's already found his true love, La Cosa Nostra. But only one problem, to realize his rightful place as the Boss of the Marcellos, he needs to be married by age 30 to a fully Italian woman. Dante is 29 with no prospects in sight.
That’s where the arrangement comes into play. Catrina Danzi has a proposition for Dante that has them both getting what they want with no love or emotions in the way.
Catrina Danzi - “She was cartel born in a Cosa Nostra ruled world who taught herself how to be the Queen.”
“People like us, we’re not supposed to feel. We don’t get attached. It ruins us. Together, we’ll be the perfect pair.”
Of course, easier said than done. Without giving anything away, these two and the way their relationship develops and evolves was amazing, realistic and so riveting. Of course, there was a lot of this...
And of course, this!
I freakin’ loved Dante! Just as I thought, he was the hottest and most complex of the Marcello brothers.
And Cat is amazing! Cat is sinfully beautiful and also a force to be reckoned with.
“You might have been a queen before, but I gave you the keys to the kingdom today.”
“I might not need a man but I want one. You, specifically.”
This final book was very well written and the story was filled with tension, lies, secrets, steamy sex and of course...
And it wouldn’t be a memorable Mafioso story without…
While this is the third book in the series and I would suggest reading them all, if were to only pick one to read from the series, I’d highly recommend this one!
