RB Banner
Title:  Bellissimo Fortuna  
Author:  Leigh Ann Lunsford
Date:  July 15th 2015 
Plot:  Fierce, good-looking, loyal, son of a crime boss, Bronson Agosto is what every girl dreams of. Devoted to one girl and willing to do everything in his power to ensure her safety. 

Beautiful, trusting, damaged, daughter of the underboss, Callie Locati has Bronson’s heart. She gave herself to him when they were kids and will sacrifice all she is to protect him. 

Divided by the greed of one of the most trusted members of the familia, a father’s sins, and secrets kept, they struggle to overcome the obstacles life has thrown their way. Is their bond strong enough to conquer the forces trying to keep them apart? Is a father’s betrayal more than their love can survive? Will the family secrets ruin them or will their devotion stand the test of time?

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC via Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ! ☆

Bellissimo Fortuna was all in all a good read, although, there was one incident that I did not particularly sit well with. It kind of just irked me with Bronson of how that particular person would know of that info about Callie and how it was used as a kicker against Callie as well.  Such a douche move, although luckily, it was just a minor inconsequential detail in the book.

That all said, I really loved the backdrop of the story. As a fangirl of mafia themed romances, Bronson and Callie’s love develops at an early age and blossoms into something more.

But as I said, this is a mafia read, their budding affections are put through the ultimate test and back burner--- as power, deceit, and dubious agendas play a big role in their unraveling— will both Bronson and Callie be able to stand testament against devious sets of plans and stances pitted so strongly in tearing them apart?

How will it pan out for these young lovers? Can they get they get their second chance at romance? For a HEA with one another?

Read and you will find out!

#After all, all's fair in love and war in the mafia world!


My Rating:

Despair and indecision linger around us, filling up the church. It’s weaving its way between each and every one of us; the loyalty that was once aligned with my family is now going to be called into question, the uncertainty of what will happen to the former soldiers and associates that worked for my father will be called into question and decisions will have to be made. The man responsible was never relieved of his duties as second in command and these men mourning my father’s demise aren’t in a position to question whatever orders they are given, not unless they want to meet the same detriment my father did. Frank Locati will seek to destroy everything my father built, he will challenge these men’s loyalties, harm the ones he doesn’t deem worthy.

As I watch the casket being lowered into the grave, surrounded by loved ones, enemies, and friends a decision is made. Today, I decide, retribution will be mine. The difference between my retribution and theirs is that the justice system will take care of mine. It may not come swiftly, or as brutally and messy as they deliver, but it will come.
