Calisto Donati 
Calisto had never been a fan of pain, but he found it provided a certain relief. It was a high that couldn’t compete with anything else he experienced. That was why he fought bare-knuckled, why he drove fast, despite knowing he might crash, and why he still enjoyed looking at Emma Donati—no matter her current status. Pain felt good. He might have been a fool for doing so, but as long as he got what he wanted from it, he didn’t really care. When he fought, he was given release. When he drove, he was given freedom. When he looked at Emma, he was given memories. All of them brought a certain level of pain. All three might kill him someday. Calisto glanced at Emma, taking her in again when she didn’t know he was looking. He realized then that only one might actually be worth dying for. 

Emma Donati 
Emma kept her gaze on the book in her lap, pretending like there wasn’t an argument going on across the room. She had become terribly good at acting like she didn’t hear. Calisto watched her out of the corner of his eye while he argued on with Affonso. She was too focused on Calisto to care about their fight. His anger. The tightness of his jaw. Searing soul-black eyes. The two men were not the same. They might have shared blood, but their hearts were entirely different. One man never let her out of his sight when he was nearby. The other acted like she didn’t exist. This was what it was like, she realized, to be in love with someone she couldn’t have. Calisto Donati would never be hers. This wasn’t a fairy tale that would end happily. They weren’t star-crossed. They were impossible. 

WARNING: The first two books in the Donati Bloodlines Trilogy end on a cliffhanger, the third is a HEA.



My Review 

OMG. Bethany-Kris, what are you doing to me?! This second book in the Donati Bloodlines trilogy was as heartbreaking as it was heart-pounding. Then with that ending, I have no idea how the HEA is going to happen but I cannot wait until the final book. 

Calisto and Emily are impossible and everything that happens to them further proves that. As their pre-ordained lives continue to unfold, any relationship they thought they had unravels. Yet they can't just leave and that only complicates things. Both have paths that the other can't follow, but their love shines through even in the most tragic circumstances. And there was tragic circumstance after tragic circumstance. Just when I thought it couldn't get worse, it did. 

I felt so many emotions while reading this. Rage being one of the biggest. Heartbreak being another. But also a feeling of hope tried to pull me from the abyss. The ending was hard to read. Still, I am choosing to hold onto that sliver of hope I felt that everything will be okay.

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, the third is a HEA.
