Publisher's Summary

I'm supposed to return her to Tristan to finish the deal. But now I'm dreading the day when I have to drop her off. Can I really do it?

I'm not supposed to care about this woman. I'm not supposed to care about anyone, actually. But I care about Bellissimo.

Good continuation, but series too long

Too drawn out, and now I have to buy a sixth book. I see the next series (Scotch King) is in 3 parts. Probably won’t continue to support authors who do this, especially when it’s just “good”. Not great.
Male narrator does a horrible female voice. Also, in almost every book someone gets a migraine from being hit on the head. That’s not a migraine; it’s a headache. The author needs an editor.

Completely absorbed

This series is everything!!

From start to finish, I didn’t breathe, I didn’t eat, I didn’t smile, I didn’t do anything... ok, maybe I’m lying. But it felt like it.

For days, I was in a trance. My earbuds glued to my ears as I made my way through this epic, dark, twisty and angsty journey. I got little sleep because I just couldn’t put it down. I can’t even review separately because I couldn’t stop long enough between books to review.

And that is no joke.

Michael and Samantha couldn’t have been more perfect. They portrayed all characters so distinctly that I knew exactly who was speaking at all times and that couldn’t have been easy. They are truly talented.

Cane & Adelina; Crow & Pearl

*****Spoiler Alert*****

Audible review. Four POV (Cane, Pearl, Adelina, & Crow). Book 5 in the Buttons series. CLIFFHANGER. The majority of the narration is  in an average American accent even though the two male leads are Italian; Michael briefly adopts a British accent, an Italian accent, & a French accent; Samantha adopts a terrible Southern accent for all of Adelina's POV. Trigger warnings: rape; human trafficking; and murders.

Cane & Adelina (aka Bellissima) return to Italy after visiting her parents. 2 weeks remain of Cane & Tristan's deal that allowed Cane to borrow Adelina. Crow still feels betrayed by Pearl (aka Button) visiting Tristan so he tells Cane to talk to Pearl to find out exactly what went on. Cane visits Pearl. Constantine kills Bones' remaining men, takes over his business, threatens Cane, and now Crow wants to give up their arms business. Cane offers Tristan $10 million, $20 million, and even unlimited weapons for a lifetime to keep Adelina but he turned Cane down only willing to accept Pearl as a trade for Adelina and hung up. Cane returns Adelina to Tristan as promised, he gave her the cyanide pills so she could end her own suffering on her own terms, he finds the note she left him, goes to see Crow because he's going to get her back, he tells Crow he loves her, and Crow decides to help. 1 week after Adelina was returned to Tristan Pearl realizes she's pregnant, Crow sends Pearl away with Lars to a safe place, Crow & Cane both get tracker implants, they then attack Tristan's compound, kill his men and save Adelina but Tristan gets away. Crow is still concerned about Tristan so he doesn't have Pearl return yet. Constantine dropped by Cane's arms compound, Cane gives him a client, and the two men threaten each other.  Cane tells Adelina he loves her but she doesn't reciprocate his sentiment. Tristan attacks Crow's home and takes him. JP

Wow!

I have loved all the books in this series and I'm sure the last book will be the same. Chapter 9 absolutely broke my heart. Michael made me cry with his performance. I love hearing about all four characters. On to listen to the last book.

Wash, rinse, repeat!

I had a difficult time getting through the first 3 books of this series. I’ll never listen to them again. I tried continuing with the series but book 4 is a duplicate of book 1 in so many ways. It was very frustrating as I enjoy a good series. Can’t finish!!!

So far this is my second favorite❤ to the 1st book

Absolutely so sweet. I love how the author had individual POV for all the characters not just two like normal. I also was so happy when Crow finally went ahead with helping his brother because it just seemed wrong for him not to be there for his brother when Pearl was safe regardless of the (?). Sorry I won't spoil that for those of you who have not listened to this one in full yet ☺
Great Job Ms. Sky it was incrediblly easy to listen to all of your books in this series in a matter of a few days listening back to back non stop. It took me a long time to finally decide to give you a chance but it definitely was well worth it 😻🤩❤

Fantastic Story & Narration

It’s been a while since I read this series but I quickly remembered the who, what, where, when and how. Cane is stuck in an impossible position, give up the woman he is falling in love with or risk the lives of Crow and Pearl. This book, like the others in the series, ends with a cliffhanger that will leave you wanting more.
