A stolen glance across a darkened restaurant. A kiss under the Italian moon. A proposition I never would have made in my former life. Our story began just like all fairy tales do…
Once upon a time.
Once upon a time, a mysterious, passionate man opened my eyes to things I’d been blind to, my heart to feelings I never thought imaginable, my mind to endless possibilities.
Once upon a time, I experienced something I didn’t think existed in real life.
Once upon a time, I learned how to fly.
Little did I know it was with broken wings. Ones that were irreparable after a lifetime of being caged.
How can I love a man who would lie to me so recklessly?
How can I give him my heart when experience tells me to keep it guarded?
How can we have a future when he’s still tormented by his past?
The Bible teaches us that “Love is patient. Love is kind.”
Now I know that love is a farce, a sham, the two of us merely players in its cruel pantomime. For ours isn’t a love story with a happy ending. Ours is a tragic love. The kind of love that leaves a permanent scar on your heart. The kind of love you never get over.
The kind of love that defies all logic.
Recommended for mature readers due to strong language and explicit sexual situations.

"Inferno" part 2 begins where part 1 left off and once I flipped the first page, I could not put this one down. Ellie needs answers and there is only one person that can give them to her. Dante needs Ellie and if that means he has to open up about certain things, then so be it. If you decide to read this series, and you really should, be sure to read part one first so that you know what is going on. Be forewarned this one is a tearjerker in parts, as we get to know more about Dante and Ellie. This book is loaded with passion, intrigue, mystery, truth, and lies, but at least at the ending of this one I felt hope. Five hopeful stars for this one!!
Just finished this book and Gah!!! It was AMAZING!!! We get some of the background story on Dante, and what has happened to make him the man he is today. I absolutely loved Eleanor throughout the book. She was sweet, sexy, and was there for Dante when he needed her most. Dante’s back story had me in tears, and there are a few secondary characters that I can’t wait to see the demise of!!! This story is sexy, heartfelt, and picked up right where part one left off. I would definitely recommend grabbing this if you’ve read book 1!
T K Leigh has a way of writing that keeps you glued to every word from the first to the last. Inferno Part 1 was good but OMG Part 2 will leave you craving so much more. Dante is a dream. You wish you can have him. He has gone through a lot and you feel or him. Even though he only has been with Eleanor for a week he is so in love with her. Afterall, fate has brought them together. Eleanor must make a choice, to leave or to stay. How can they be together forever after only knowing each other for a week. Dante's explanation fate does not have a timetable. If it is going to be it will be. They have such a dynamic relationship. Eleanor finally knows that love is for real. Dante has shown her what love is. He was brought up by his mother and her family and was loved. Eleanor was not so lucky. The only reason why she was even born was because it helped her father's political career. She never knew what love was. Even though she only knows Dante a week, she has felt and received more love in that one week than she has in her entire life. That even includes her relationship with Brock. Their relationship too was to build his political career. Is Dante correct when he says that fate has brought them together and they will be together forever or will she go back to the states and never forget the love she felt for Dante and learn to stand on her own?
Dante and Eleanor are sizzling together! After reading Inferno: Part 1 and dealing with that major cliffhanger, I couldn't wait to get my hands on book 2. I am the type of person who spends countless hours trying to guess what is going to happen in the next installment when we're left hanging like that. T.K. doesn't disappoint, taking the reader on a journey from the streets of Rome to the beautiful Italian countryside. This installment focused on Dante and Eleanor together. T.K. just knows how to write and build a foundation between two people. The feelings they have for one another, the thoughts and emotions that run through them as they think about each other, the physical connections they create. She just does such an amazing job that I tend to forget these people are just characters in a book and are not real people who live and breathe. Fate and Karma play a huge roll in Dante and Eleanor's story. Was it fate that brought them together? How big of a part will fate play in whether these two have a future together? We get a lot of background on Dante's life in this book. What he has been through, things that are going on behind the scenes of his life. We learn more about the kind of childhood Eleanor had, what she's been forced to endure with parents who seemingly only had her so they could portray the perfect family picture. And we find out that Dante and Eleanor's lives are intertwined in a way that no one would have ever expected. Did fate have a hand in that too? Inferno: Part 2 is part of a series so you absolutely need to read book 1 prior to picking up this one up. And if you've already read part 1, you will remember that Eleanor only set out to stay in Italy for a few weeks, just to get away from all the crap and turmoil her life was in before she hopped on that plane. That little detail, the fact that she is heading back home soon, was something I dreaded happening, as did Dante and Eleanor. It was so obvious to me that these two were meant to be together!! It was so obvious the feelings they have for each other, even though it has only been a short time. And Dante was not shy about telling Eleanor how he felt about her. "I need you, too. Like lungs need oxygen. Like the desert needs the rain. Like a sparrow needs wings." Sigh... such beautiful words. But then, he IS Italian, and I could just hear him say those things to Eleanor in his sexy Italian accent. Eleanor really tugged at my heartstrings in this book. Well, both of them did, actually, but she did because of things she finds out and decisions she needs to make because of it. I know what I want her to do, but it's easy for me to sit back and offer advice when it isn't my life. She has things she needs to do, accomplish, finish before she feels she can have a clear future with Dante. But does she really need to do the things she's determined to do? Everyone who weighs in on this topic has a different answer for her, particularly Dante. Once again, we are left with a cliffhanger, and we'll need to wait until the third book is released. Will Fate play a hand in deciding what direction Eleanor's future leads her? And will Karma step in and right some of the wrongs that she and Dante have suffered through? We have to wait and see!
