I loved the Battaglia Saga, love the characters and love Sienna's writing style.
She did say that Giovanni and Mirabella are her destiny couple and you can clearly see it in all the Battaglia books! The way that Mira is his rock, his salvation, his anchor, without her love, he is a hell of alot more dangerous, without question. She does keep him more grounded however I do like that with his hard edge-ness, his vulnerbility, he does go a little bit insane at times, you just cant help being more attracted to his character. I love his relationship with his daughter Eve. I can imagine you will see his softer side still further following the birth of his twin boys.
I just wish that if he has given Mira the role as Donna, let her be Donna!, let her know whats going on, trust her to make the right decisions! They can both be very very powerful and unstoppable!
Marietta, Lorenzo and Carlo's relationship is dangerous, whoa, the girl is torn!!! From her whirlwind romance to marriage, her attraction to Carlo and then her getting to grips with her new found family. Its going to be explosive!
I like that her relationship with Mira is starting to develop in this book, I want to see it develop still further in Sienna's next book and Im sure she will not dissapoint!
I think again because Giovanni has been so focused on his love and his family, along with his Don responsibilities, he has left Catalina's character to evolved in the book. She seems to know what she wants now, however its starting to interfere with her relationship with Dominic. It gonna be interesting.
I like Dominic's role as consigliere, I like his backstory and how Dominic came to this family. It definately explains his loyalty to Giovanni. Im interested to see him develop still further and how it falls in line with his relationship with Catalina.....If it does!!
All the other characters, the Mancini's, Carmella, Gemma, Rosetta, Rocco (one to seriously look out for!), Zia, Renaldo, Cecelia, keep em coming...Oh and where is Kei??
I cant get enough of of the saga! I need Sienna to carry on writing about them. It would be excellent if these books were transferred into audiobooks, can you imagine people?!!! now that would be soooo wicked! Sienna? how about it?!! Fantastic work! x

What can I say...Another winner by Queen Sienna Mynx. I so love alpha Giovanni and his Queen B Mira. I read it in 2 days. I just could not put it down. My eyes were red and bloodshot from lack of sleep...LOL. But it was worth it.
Can't wait for book 5. That Lorenzo,,tsk tsk...what is Gio gonna do when he finds out all the things Lor as done. I feel sorry for Carlo.. I kinda like him.

This is Don Giovanni Battaglia and Donna Mira's Story! In their team is Mariatta/Lorenzo Battaglia and Dominic/Catalina Battaglia. This is team Battaglia for me and anyone who tries to get in-between any of their relationships (Carlo, Rosetta) are the enemy as far as I am concerned. This series just keeps getting better and better. I loved this Chapter in the Series, it included, love, hate, murder, betrayal, madness, intrigue, sadness and sickness. All the elements of an emotional roller coaster, which this one is! I could not race through the story it actually took me 3 days and some very sore eyes to read it to the end. It was a gripping and riveting ride! I loved it. I would highly recommend this book and whole series to anyone who enjoys a good story!

I cannot tell you how much I love this book or this series. The only disappointment for me was that it ended!! I was ready to read ten more chapters. I recently saw a Q&A Vlog by the author and some readers asked her why her books were so long, are they crazy?
Its so good to buy a e-book and actually get a full rounded story instead of all these 'shorts' that are not short on price.
I'm so looking forward to the next instalment of this great epic tale of love and mystery, looking forward for dark secrets to be revealed and the tension of being La Famiglia

I love the series, but I'm really not sure I can cope with the rollercoaster of emotions that the Battaglia 'famiglia' put me through!! But, it appears the saga continues…well done Ms Mynx for producing another excellent instalment, but I have to say, my reading was disturbed by some inexcusable spelling errors, particularly towards the end - hence only 4*
