PLEASE DO NOT GO FORWARD WITHOUT READING THE PRIOR EPISODES
This episode was one major drama scene after the other. It was very easy to get caught up in what was going on that the reader may lose sight of what this series is supposed to be about. I believe that there was too much action and twists to keep the reader stabilized on the premise of the story.
I was entertained but had so many questions about how scenes played out. Enough said about that…..and I know that Marita noticed what was going on with the series, so much so, that she contacted a few of us and asked our opinion and help with getting the series back on track.
Now, it’s my turn to get up on the soap box and start my rant. I have had the pleasure of working with Marita on this blog tour and have chatted with her while she writes each episode as a buddy group and I honestly have to say that I have NEVER met any author who takes criticism as well as Marita.
She read a review on GR that I even cringed when reading and prayed she didn’t see it or get upset about it. You know what she did? She got on our Group and said – “it was time to get the story back on track” How many authors do you know who can take that, learn from it and strive to do better? I know in my past with GR, authors can get nasty, flag and complain to GR, but it takes a strong minded author to “chew the meat and spit out the bones”.
As I step down off my soap box, I want to let all reviewers know that the majority of the authors do take what we write seriously and use that to enhance their future writings.
She is just all over the place in this episode. Rita is still held captive with Jagger at “The House of Whores” while the banter and sexual tension escalates between the two of them. Jagger wants to help Rita escape but she doesn’t want to leave without getting Jagger to safety.
They have a run in with Matteo and Rita starts spewing out a twist on who she is to get Matteo confused and this gives Jagger and her the chance to finally escape. Just when Rita thinks she has everything under control with her mission for the FBI, she once again hits a road block. Not only that…..but something so extreme seems to jog the memories of her past.
We leave Rita locked in a cell at the D’Angelo house.
Frano gets his memories back after Thierry runs to him for help after the beating Bianca took from Alberto. He confronts his brother and banishes him from the family. Frano is ready for revenge against the Donatelli’s and he goes gung ho to get his cousin and Rita out of their clutches.
At the end of the episode, Frano is met with the greatest confliction in his life.
Jagger is starting to heal from the torture at the hands of The Padre and continually believes that Rita is really his long lost love.
He is met again with Alberto in this episode and we start to learn how unhealthy Alberto’s obsession with Jagger really is. With everything Jagger has gone through, the only thought in his mind is his own death and how appealing it seems at the present time.
Alberto finally gets caught by Frano and is made to confess his sins against his family. Alberto easily comes up with more lies twisted around the truth trying to keep his allegiance with the Donatelli’s in order to have his obsession, Jagger.
Has Alberto gone too far this time? What do you think is going to happen once Alberto finally meets back up with Jagger?
These questions and more are answered during this episode!
Padre Michael Donatelli
Must still be at the Vatican during this episode.
Not dead…..hmmm? I wonder what the future holds for her after this?
Matteo’s one true obsession, Alberto still wants nothing to do with him and the little green horns are showing towards Jagger. Matteo wants Jagger dead so Alberto will reciprocate his own feelings. There is a confrontation between Matteo, Jagger and Rita that will have your jaw dropping to the floor.
Thierry tries everything to get Frano to wake up from the drugs and remember everything that has happened. We do learn though in this episode that Thierry has very strong feelings for Frano and has been carrying a “torch” for him.
Well, everything came to a head in this book and opens up a new direction for the next set of episodes. It only makes me wonder how Marita is going to continue after the MAJOR CLIFFHANGER she left us with this episode!
