In La Dolce Vita Mynx delivers on her promise that this will be the transition book that will set the series on the fast track to it's conclusion. It seems as though everyone and everything is coming undone. Giovanni and Mirabella face their pasts, struggle to find a way to accept their contentious problems that plague their lives, all while trying to plan for a future that keeps their entire family safe and intact. Lorenzo and Marietta are scrambling to keep their shared secret from seeing the light of day. Marietta is trying to manipulate everyone, including her own sister in order to protect Lorenzo. Lorenzo's guilt and determination to make things right is causing him to act with increasing desperation and recklessness. Domi and Catalina come to a crossroads in their relationship that may have no way back. Carlo is facing his own weakness that he didn't realize he had before his trip to America and the fall out with Shae. Carlo is also forced to make a difficult choice when it comes to where his loyalties lie. There are no wasted characters in the Battaglia series. Mynx uses all of her secondary characters really well and they all play into the bigger picture.
There is so much that needs to be resolved in the upcoming books and I am very much looking forward to experiencing the final loops on this roller coaster of a series. Things ended dramatically in La Dolce Vita which left me ready for the next installment. There's a promise made at the end that I am going to glory in seeing fulfilled. So if I enjoyed this so much, why not a five star rating? There are enough grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure problems that they are noticeable and were sometimes disruptive to the flow of reading.
