They came from two different worlds.

She’s the princess of mafia royalty.
He’s the dirt of New York’s slums.

They didn’t fit … until they did.

What would it take to change a life—an entire perspective? All the things you thought you knew and wanted? For them, it took thirty-six days. And the privilege of meeting each other.

But a simple meeting between Renzo Zulla and Lucia Marcello was just the start—follow them from New York to Vegas, and even San Francisco as they fight to keep what they want the most …


Note: Renzo + Lucia: The Complete Trilogy is a forbidden mafia romance featuring the full-length novels, Privilege, Harbor, Contempt, and the companion novellas, Forever and Cusp.

I know that I’ve been a little late to the party but GAAAHHH, rereading this trilogy had been the highlight of my hectic work life. Bethany-Kris’ main leads are some of the most fleshed-out characters that I have seen in the romance realm.

There’s no doubt that Renzo and Lucia are one of those. Since this is a trilogy, you’ll have to spend your time reading the books for quite a while. BUT, I’m telling you that it is all worth it. It’s one of those stories that you cannot put down until you read the last page. And how satisfying it was to it all.

It’s so action-packed with so many twists and turns that I’m certain that calling their story as a star-crossed romance is totally underrated. Their love story is more than their origins. I loved how the characters have matured over time.

And I must say that rereading this all in one go made me appreciate Bethany-Kris’ pacing with her writing. It made me see their character development a bit more, I was rooting for their love story like true fan rooting for their OTP!

Plus, the two action-packed novellas here were just icing on the cake. I’ve been following the stories of BK’s world for a long time but still, I can’t wait to devour more! Diego’s Cusp got me so excited for more stories in BK’s colorful world of organized crime.
