Finally we got dual povs! I love the sisterhood between Aria and Gianna. The interactions between two couples are adorable, I like this vibe so much!

Oh my god it was amazing!
Mateo is my favourite hero of the books so far and I really love Gianna
I loved how to find her freedom all she had to do was listen to heart *swoons*

Recuerdo haber leido la serie hasta este libro hace años y sinceramente no recordaba mucho, lo que no espere fue decepcionarme.

En primer lugar, la mafia. Sí entiendo que es un libro de mafia y que las tradiciones y blah blah blah. Pero es muy incómodo como siempre se recalca el papel x de la mujer en la mafia y como debe obedecer en todo. Si bien “asi es en la mafia”, sigue siendo ficción por lo que por una vez una mujer supere las expectativas, no estaria mal.

Por otro lado, Gianna. Entiendo su afán por no querer quedarse en el mundo de la mafia, probar un poco de libertad, la entiendo. También que siempre este en contra del papel que toman las mujeres en la mafia. Pero al crecer en ese entorno deberia de saber que con palabrería y peleas nada consigue. Supongo que viendo que no iba a detener nada con ello, huyo. Creo que si en lugar de ser tan terca, hubiera entendido mejor sus emociones y sentimientos, podríamos habernos ahorrado el libro. Sinceramente, su personaje fue muy molesto para mi.

Ahora hablando de Mateo, se enamoró cuando la vio por su carácter y asi. Su papel en todo el libro lo senti plano(? Si, se queria casar con ella y es hermano de Luca. Ya. Asi lo lei. Lo que termino por hacer que me guste fue que al final comprendio que Gianna debia ir a él. Bravo.

Finalmente, lo que me ha gustado y siendo que por ello es el puntaje que le estoy dando al libro, es la escena del accidente. Hasta me saco algunas lagrimas de tristeza pero también de cólera (no lo negaré) por la indecisión de Gianna y su terquedad. Vamos que persona mas terca que ella, imposible. Siempre es bueno saber cuando ceder y eso lo tengo muy presente (será que por eso me molesto Gianna).

⭐️⭐️1/2

This book got me out of a reading slump. I was so addicted, I couldn’t get enough of it. Cora just writes the best mafia!

Their story was so different from what I expected. In the first book it came across that they hated each other so much but that isn’t the truth. 

I’m so obsessed with Matteo. His possessiveness was everything. He is the definition of the ‘touch her and I’ll kill you’ trope! I also loved Gianna. I was a little worried that I wouldn’t really like her character because I found her to be a bit annoying in the previous books, but I liked her so much in this! I really enjoyed their relationship and the push and pull between them. They are just perfect for each other!

This was my most anticipated read! I’m so glad I finally read it!
-
I’ve always wanted to read Matteo and Gianna’s story ever since I saw a recommendation abt it on TikTok I think.

Gianna (I imagine her as Angelina Michelle)



She’s a very badass woman (as OW says)
Doesn’t let anyone step on her and would do anything that’s best for her.
She did get somewhat annoying but I’ll let it slide…

Matteo (I imagine his as Nick Bateman)



A very cocky person I do have to say.
The way he would do anything for Gianna and get her to be his wife is just heart-warming but he has a weird way to do it.
Like Luca, he did have a rough childhood and is where he is now.
-
I wouldn’t say it’s an enemy to lovers bc it's only one-sided that didn’t like the other.
I still don’t like Luca he’s not my favorite capo. The way he talked so bad about Gianna was very disgusting. I know he wants what’s best for Matteo but he shouldn’t have said those things about Gianna.
I will give some points to Aria but she’s still annoying and not my favorite as well.
I hated the way the family turned cold towards Gianna for doing what was best for her.
Overall, 4/5 stars still love Gianna and Matteo!
