Well, here we are again. The second part to Amore. The first part left us in a pretty big cliffhanger so I was certainly dying to get my hands on this one so I knew what was going to happen. I don’t want to give any spoilers from Part 1 so this review might just be a little vague.
When we first meet this couple, Julietta happens to run into Rafael at his club. While she knows the club that she is at is owned by an Italian Mafia Boss, she has no idea that the man she meets and can’t take her eyes off of is actually the BOSS. Their relationship after that is a whirlwind. It is easy to tell that the two of them love each other but Rafael’s most important rule is for Julietta to never fall in love with him. She does and things spiral. Then we get hit with a major cliffy.
OK, now that I recapped that slightly, Part 2 picks up about 9 months after Julietta tells Rafael that she loves him. They have not been together and Julietta’s life has turned into pure chaos. She now has a new reason for living and her priorities have shifted. Unfortunately someone is ready to double cross Rafael and is using Julietta as a pawn in order to get what they want. I don’t want to say much more beyond that. There are certainly some twists that you won’t see coming and a great surprise from some characters of another series that Bella writes about that has me itching now to go back and read all about them again.
I just love Julietta. She’s so strong. Especially in this book. She really shows just how strong she is and how much her love and protection will actually go. Even when she is facing the toughest situations, she remains strong and never lets the fight go out of her.
Rafael. Oh Rafael. In this book we get to see just how much he actually cares for Julietta. We still get a bit of the demanding alpha that he’s always been but you can tell that Julietta has gotten under his skin and tore down the walls built around his heart. The struggle he has throughout this book is tough and heartbreaking but it’s great to see how much love he can actually have.
“You’re the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen, Julietta. You could be a hundred pounds heavier than you were when you left me and I’d still think that.”
I also enjoyed how much of a role that Celia, Julietta’s best friend, and Vincent, Rafael’s brother played in it. You can tell that there is something between the two of them and I loved Celia’s fight that she had in him. I hope we get their story!
Overall, I really enjoyed Rafael and Julietta’s story. If you looking for a different side on a Mafia romance that is full of twists and turns, then this is the series for you.
