Written for Beyond ReadingNB I didn't realize it was a hisher aspect series I got the first book though and it has sort of a bum endingFantastic Jonathan Bavaro spent years – twenty – watching and loving Melody Mccartneythough he didn't call it that from a distance The problem He was cursed to only ever love her from afar by his mafia family who wants her dead I don’t think I ever uite appreciated the romanticized violence I’d been reading as I did after I read The Exceptions Disillusioned yes but not at all ungrateful At first I was completely floored by some of the gruesome scenes – gruesomeness I had rarely encountered while reading romances For a while albeit a short while I was hesitant – worried as a blubber baby that it would be just too much for me I had an epiphany though I realized the books I usually read – the sugar coated stuff as I’ll now call them – was what I’d come to expect; though not nearly realistic I realized the heroes that would always fight nameless blatantly evil foes only until they cried ‘uncle’ and no further were fanciful Jonathan created a new sort of hero for me – one with tarnished armor One that was somehow in his imperfection all the perfect and human Jonathan was written beautifully – skillfully – and he captured my heart and just that easily influenced my emotions More than anything I think I appreciated Cristofano’s consistency I expected of course that Jonathan would – uite simply – turn his family in somewhere around the end then ride off into the sunset with Melody Of course being that this book does not strive to meet my expectations that does not happen Instead from the very beginning it is apparent how much Jonathan loves his family – that despite resenting their name he protects them with as much of his being as possible I am especially glad that Cristofano kept Jonathan treading the fine line between bad – loyalty – and good betrayal I felt Jonathan as easily and clearly as I hear my own thoughts – I felt his indecision I felt his connection to Melody and most importantly I felt his need for her to be free This need is what drew out that delicious tension – a tension I both hated and loved mind you – that gave the book its hard edge that made their relationship near impossible If I start on the second characters now I’d likely never end so I’ll just summarize them; brilliant All I can say is that despite 23 aggravating years before they truly find each otherand I mean downright frustrating despite the occasional gruesomeness I never thought I’d get close to reading –I don’t think I could ever uite capture the beauty of what David Cristofano wrote on those pages in this review I’ll leave that for the readers to discover I did cry like a baby not a sad baby though
