"This wasn’t a fairy tale that would end happily. They weren’t star-crossed. They were impossible."
Why, Bethany Kris, why end it like this? Never in my days had a book rock me to the core the way Thin Lies did to me. I mean, I would have wanted this to impact me the way Thin Lies did but I never expected Thin Lines to really shatter my heart to smithereens. I never expected Thin Lines to really give the biggest book hangover on earth. I am still thinking about it after finishing reading it. Bethany Kris truly wrote a story that truly touched my soul. Yes it is a mafia book but what is so unique is that it showed more emotion which was heart pumping had me on the edge of my seat.
Thin Lines is the second book in the Bloodlines Trilogy which focuses on Calisto and Emma's relationship together. You must read Thin Lies first because it is the continuation to where we left. Emma is now married to Affonso and both Calisto and Emma have decided to forget what happened in Vegas. But sometimes you just do not forget things like that easily. They become friends but soon they faced with questioning their attraction for each other. Do they act on it again? Do their attraction turn into love? This book kind of reminded me of Romeo and Juliet with lovers doomed because of their love but with more action and more emotion that truly hurt my heart. The emotion was truly pouring out from the pages and this made the book so captivating to me. In Thin Lies, it started more of an introduction to Calisto and Emma's relationship but in Thin Lines, you delve deeper to their emotions and also get a glimpse to their vulnerabilities. I loved Thin Lines more because of that.
The writing in Thin Lines was so impeccable. Bethany Kris just brings out the best in her writing. Her writing just draws you. In this case, her writing brought out so many emotions, actions and drama that really made the book stand out. Personally, her writing just brought that magic that made this book so absolutely fantastic. I might be fangirling just a little bit.
"She wasn’t just Affonso Donati’s pretty, young wife with no opinion to share and her fake smiles plastered on. She had fire. She had passion."
I hated what became of Emma. I know it was because of Affonso. I personally hate Affonso and I really want him to die so bad. He is pure evil. Affonso was making her into a doll. Pretty and lifeless. It made me sick but she did regain her passion and fire. It always made me love her more. She does go through things that truly had me emotional and I loved the way she came up strong.
"When he fought, he was given release. When he drove, he was given freedom. When he looked at Emma, he was given memories."
I love Calisto. I felt for him from his duties to Affonso to having a forbidden attraction to Emma. All I want is to hug him. His feelings touched me to the core and I loved I got to see his vulnerable side more in this book. I was able to see more of his caring side which I love more of. He truly deserves to be in one of my list as book boyfriend. I totally love him.
Thin Lines was a fantastic book to read. It had forbidden love, action, drama, heart stopping emotion and characters that proved to impact the story. I need the next book so badly. I cannot wait to read it and to get my questions answered.
