Better and better and BETTER!! I loved the first part of this volume; seeing Silvio so hurt and vulnerable and needing Battisto; I think I kinda hate B with his 19 year old thing and the Dorien Grey painting; and Silvio saying to Stefano that "you're not his type" in previous book .Poor Silvio, it definitely all broke my heart a little bit.
But then we see him coming to the rescue; with Stefano knowing things would have been different had Silvio been running the show. That whole bit at the end was too beautiful. The walls came down. Damn! This is a good series.
