Bethany-Kris: Thin Lines (Donati Bloodlines #2)




Megjelenés éve: 2016.

Magánkiadás

Sorozat: Donati Bloodlines

Fülszöveg: 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.





(Goodreads)

Nem. Te gonosz nő, ezt nem teheted meg velem. Istenem, nem látok a könnyeimtől. Az egész testemet zokogás rázza. Nem. Ez nem lehet. Nem akarom elfogadni, nem! Nem tudom, mikor tett engem tönkre könyv ilyen szinten. Szerintem a válasz az, hogy soha. Bethany-Kris szégyentelenül játszik az elmémmel. Én pedig hagyom neki, mert feledhetetlen élményeket ad ezáltal nekem. Tudtam, hogy fájni fog. De az, hogy ennyire…Gondolni sem mertem rá. Ha most itt ülnétek mellettem, láthatnátok, hogy zsebkendők ezrei borítják a padlót, és még most sem bírom abbahagyni a sírást. És egy ideig nem is fogom.
Bocsánat, de annyira nehéz.

Ez Bethany-Kris legjobb könyve. Már régóta tudom, hogy imádja kicsinálni az olvasóit, de ezzel a könyvvel mindent
űberelt. Pedig már tényleg elértem egy olyan pontot, mikor azt mondtam, már annyira profi vagyok a munkásságában, hogy nem tud meglepni. Ilyen nagyot még életemben nem tévedtem. De igazán szeretem az ilyesfajta meglepetéseket. Mindig meg tud újulni. Ez nagyon dicséretes. Egy-két kivétellel minden könyvét olvastam – még a Russian Guns-ból hiányzik az utolsó pár kötet -, és a mai napig képes úgy elkápráztatni, ahogy senki más. Mert valljuk be, ebben a témában azért illik mindig újat húzni. Hát, Bethany-Kris ehhez nagyon ért. (Jah, és Gio!!)

Még most sem kapok levegőt. Pedig kimentem, szívtam egy kis friss levegőt, hogy valamennyire kitisztuljon a buksim. De egyszerűen még mindig nem bírom felfogni, mi történt velem. Hihetetlen, mert tisztára olyan volt, mintha Emma-val és Calisto-val karöltve szenvedtem volna végig minden pillanatot. Ez a történet érzelmileg teljesen kifacsar, mégis megdobogtatja a legfagyosabb szívet is. Ők nem egymásnak teremtettek. Lehetetlenek voltak. Annyira rosszak, mégis…annyira jók.

Emma-ért annyira fájt a szívem és a lelkem, hogy azt leírni sem tudom. De ugyanez igaz Calisto-ra is. Nagyon remélem, hogy ezek ketten minél hamarabb megkapják a boldog befejezésüket, mert annyira járna már nekik a boldogság, hisz két igen különleges lélekr
ől beszélhetünk személyükben.

Nem jöhet elég hamar a folytatás!

Idézetek
*****
Pain was a reminder of life.
It couldn’t be felt after death.


As long as he kept a distance, Calisto wouldn’t find himself failing again.
Surely, that was enough.


Her attention and kindness was a different matter altogether. They didn’t belong to him now that Emma was married.
They hadn’t belonged to him before.
She was just making it clear.


“You didn’t have to play.”
Calisto’s hand dropped down from the keys. Being side by side like they were, no one could see his fingers dance over hers on top of her lap. It was sweet enough to make her breath catch. Calisto’s gaze never left hers.
“I did,” he said. “Because you asked me to, Emmy.”


This wasn’t a fairy tale that would end happily. 
They weren’t star-crossed. They were impossible.


They were playing such a dangerous game together.
It was deadly.
Mistakes were a death sentence.
Emma couldn’t stop.

Calisto was a drug—a needle to her vein.

Synopsis: 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.
