Bellissimo Lotta - Leigh Ann Lunsford
April's 5 Star Review
The idea of forever terrifies Bianca Agosto. Abhorring love; she is surrounded by it on a daily basis. The Mob Princess is doted on, adored by all, and loved by one. Struggling with her feelings against love, she falls. Hard.
Dakota Hyatt, the boy who was untainted by the life in which Bianca grew up, and her brother’s best friend. His own tragedy in life makes him hold on to the things that matter. He may not understand what the life means for Bianca, but he makes sure to be her safe haven, her soft landing, the one place she can truly be herself.
Succumbing to love isn’t easy but proves to be worth every hurdle; but one lie, one mistake, one indiscretion destroys it all. The boy who seemed so untouched by the life might not be as removed as they all once believed.
This is Dakota and Bianca's story. Be prepared for a roller coaster ride of emotions in this story. Both characters are a mess at times. They really do love each other though. But at some points, it's almost toxic.
You can feel how much and how strong Dakota and Bianca love is for each other. Just like any other couple they have some major bumps in the road. There are times that you are wanting them to be together but then there are times I yelled at them to just get away from each other. You have been warned if you are looking for a happily ever after we only get it for one couple in this book.
I couldn’t put this book down. This book was written nicely. The flow of the story was awesome. It kept you wanting more. There is a steady pace throughout the book and there is a mix of both sad, happy and anticipation. I love how she brought back Bronson and Callie and how she introduced us to a new character. Can’t wait to see what happens next.
Make sure you read the first book Bellissimo Fortuna before reading this one.
