Review: Waste of Worth

Waste of Worth Waste of Worth by Bethany-Kris
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ever since meeting Dino in Deathless & Divided, I wanted to know his story and I was excited to hear that Bethany-Kris had created a duet for him.

Dino DeLuca came across as cold, detached, and unapproachable. But it was evident from the beginning of this book that Dino was a broken man. He had a huge heart filled with compassion and understanding, however, due to his past (and present), he believed himself unworthy of any good or happiness. That all started to change when Karen Martin got him to smile. The evolution of their relationship was beautiful!

If you've read Deathless & Divided, then you know that Dino, Theo and Lily's parents were murdered because their father turned snitch. Their killer: Ben DeLuca, their uncle. Ben then took guardianship over them and made their lives a living hell by the way that he brutalized them. Dino, as the eldest, took the brunt and it broke my heart. I've been wanting Ben to die a slow and painfully miserable death. Just sayin'. Nothing much has changed except that now Dino is a man and has practically shut off his emotions. Ben can't hurt him physically but loves to find ways to torture the younger DeLuca generation, especially Dino. I'm terrified of what will happen if Dino's newfound love and happiness is discovered.

In the end, Dino and Karen's world comes crumbling down and if the glimpse I got into book two is anything to go by, shite's about to go down. This story has plenty of dirty deeds, manipulation, power plays, and suspense, as any good mafia book should. It also has a lot of love and a lot of heart and I loved seeing Dino LIVE!! He and Karen have to make so many hard decisions and sacrifices and I hope it is all worth it in the end. I better get a freaking fantastic epilogue for the pain I'm going through right now!! I can't wait to see how things turn out. I'm staying tuned for Worth of Waste!!
