When falling is easy, people often forget about the crash.

The time has finally come for Marcus Guzzi to step into his birthright. He’s the firstborn—the next boss to take over his family’s mafia and he’s never been more ready. With an MC encroaching on Guzzi territory, family expectations following him, and more responsibility on his shoulders than ever, what’s one more thing added to his ever-growing list of duties when his father asks for a favor? He just didn’t expect that favor to bring with it a woman he can’t ignore.

Cella Marcello is a lot of things. Single mother. Daughter of a former New York Underboss. A highly sought-after interior designer. Widow. The one thing she’s learned about life after all that’s happened in hers? It keeps moving on, and so does she. When a contract for a penthouse design takes her to Toronto, she isn’t ready for the gorgeously dangerous man waiting there to make sure she has everything she needs. Even if the thing she needs is him.

Marcus is everything she never wanted before now. He wasn’t even looking for someone like her. When the traumas of the past take center stage, these two will need to decide if the chance at forever is worth the risk.


The final Guzzi Legacy novel …

Marcus was one great finale of the Guzzi Legacy series for 2019. I have been curious about his own story from the moment he appeared in his parent’s book. And I’m so glad that his story is finally here! Let me tell you as a big fan of the Guzzi series, this is everything I could ever hope for and more. There are so many things that I loved regarding these characters and their stories.

First off, Cella’s portrayal of a single mom was spot on. As a widow, she wanted to take the reins in raising her child and be as independent as she can be. However, she unwittingly ended up further away from her family. It was her grief and heartbreak that made her so real and lovable to me. But it was Tiffany that stole my heart.

Tiffany and Cella’s bond is everything that you could wish for a mother-daughter relationship to be. And having Marcus worm his way into the little girl’s heart (and her Mom) was so sweet and special.

As for Marcus, the heir apparent to the Guzzi kingdom, his role as the future leader of the pack was seen from the very first Guzzi book. The singleton of the Guzzi brood, he was made to take over his father’s footsteps. To see him flourish and overcome his adversities was one of the best plotlines of these series.

Cella and Marcus were the inevitable pair that everybody has been waiting for. The poignant story of loss was so real in this book that you can’t help but cheer for Cella and Tiffany’s happily ever after. And in the end, they did find it in Marcus.

Rating: 5/5
