Review for Code of Honor by Missy Johnson - 5 bees knees!
SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS.COM -
Pietro Gustovi is loyal, polished, and hard as stone, the kind of guy women want and men respect. At twenty-three, he’s survived tragedies that would break men twice his age. And he owes it all to his father’s closest friend, Giovanni Spontagio, who took him in as an orphaned teenager. Pietro would give his life for Giovanni . . . but his heart belongs to Giovanni’s daughter. Raised in Chicago under the spotlight of power and privilege, Lucy Spontiago feels most alive on stage. Determined to become a prima ballerina, she escapes her father’s protective gaze long enough to audition for the ballet in New York City. Soon, however, Lucy realizes that she is not alone. Pietro is watching her back. And though he’s like a brother to her, Lucy cannot deny the thrill she feels knowing his eyes are on her. Pietro could never betray his mentor by sleeping with his only child. But Lucy follows her passions, no matter how forbidden. Soon their nights are consumed by explosive, red-hot temptation—a dance that will expose shocking secrets and burn everything else to the ground.
MY REVIEW -
Contains Slight Spoilers!!!!!
Loved it! I want the next book now! Too bad the next book says its not coming out till December 2016! Jeez, that's way too long. Anyway, this book was right up my alley, I loved Pietro and Lucy! Their story is super sweet, and I love how they are sort of childhood sweethearts; their love is a deep bond between them. Pietro's love for Lucy is so sweet, and he a wonderful guy; I like that he doesn't sleep around, him being in love with Lucy is important to him, and even if he thinks he can't be with her, he doesn't need to go sleep with other women just because he's a guy and can't help himself; it's refreshing for a guy to have some control over himself. I don't really like the mafia angle, and I hope Pietro stays out of that life because that just isn't a life to live. I like that Lucy is into ballet, and I like that she stands up for herself, but I don't like that she took her father's offer, and I don't like that Pietro tries to push Lucy away for her safety; that's never a good idea. This book ends in a cliffhanger, so I'm so not liking that! I am really, really hoping that Pietro and Lucy find a way to work through their problems, and I hope there won't be any other people that try to sway them away from each other because that would be torturous! Hopefully their love holds strong, and they stay true to each other, and they both realize what is truly important in life; each other. I need the next book now!
