SYNOPSIS

Gian Guzzi’s problems are piling up faster than he knows how to handle them. A murdered grandfather, an unpredictable mafia, and a new boss that threatens both his family’s legacy and his life. He has a duty to the oath he swore. First to la famiglia, and only then to himself.

Duty. Legacy. Love.
Always in that order.

Or that’s how it should be.

With the violent uncertainty that has become constant in his days, Cara Rossi should have been only a distraction for him to enjoy. Until she becomes so much more.

The lies?
Their life?
All this love?

It doesn’t matter how much it entangles together; it’ll still unravel eventually.

And when it does … may God save them all.

Review:

I had an absolute blast reliving Cara and Gian’s love story again! Bethany-Kris has always been my go-to gal when it comes to mafia romance. Cara and Gian’s story proves to be no exception to her excellent roster of the interconnected world of organized crime.

I read their story a few years back already but I still got all the feels to this book. It was really refreshing to read about an organized crime family whose home base is outside the US. I was even fascinated by the French dialogue. Partly because I don’t know a single word of it but mainly because it added a bit of flair to the story. And that’s the sort of nuanced detail that you can expect from a BK romance.

Reading this duet made me even more thrilled to read about Cara and Gian’s children! The Guzzi boys will definitely be another serial that I’ll be raving about it in the coming months!

Dirty Pool by Bethany-Kris Blog Tour and ARC Review

DIRTY POOL

by Bethany-Kris
Publication Date: May 6, 2019
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance, Standalone

AVAILABLE NOW!

SYNOPSIS

To get what he wants, he’ll have to play a game of dirty pool.

Michel Marcello never wanted to be a mafioso like every other man in his family—he wanted to be more. That doesn’t mean he’s unfamiliar with the life, or that he can’t hold his own against other made men.

They forgot where he came from …

His chance encounter with the fiery and beautiful daughter of Detroit’s most notorious Irish mob boss stokes flames beyond the ones that ignite between Michel and Gabbie Casey. Rivals shouldn’t mix, but these opposites have never been more attracted, either.

The lines between family loyalty, their duties, and responsibility begin to blur.

Love ruins all.

But these two aren’t the only ones playing this game, and it just became far more dangerous to get out alive.

*

Dirty Pool is a standalone romantic suspense.

Review:

Michel Marcello is probably the most low-key out of the entire clan. Him not being part of the organized crime business of his family might make you brush off his character, BUT wait until you read his story.

Michel may be used to flying under the radar in the organized crime world but that doesn’t mean that his life isn’t interesting. In fact, this has got to be one of the best standalone books that I’ve read this year.

I really loved Michel’s character. I loved how emotionally adjusted he is especially when he found out that he was adopted. I loved how he took the news. He didn’t have any existential crisis. And most of all, he understood. He didn’t even doubt for a second regarding how much Catrina and Dante love him. He firmly believed that the people who raised him are his parents.

But most of all I love his drive to become a doctor and be something more than his family name. This is something that Michel and Gabbie have in common. Their will to succeed in their respective fields and pursue their dream is really awe-inspiring.

Gabbie is a feisty redhead who knows what she wants in life. When she decided that she wanted Michel Marcello, she goes for it. Despite being the daughter of the Irish mob boss, it didn’t stop her to go against the rules to be with him.

Michel and Gabbie together? Well, that’s a fiery little combination that’s full of passion and chemistry. As always, Bethany-Kris delivered such a wonderful tale between these two characters and so much more. I enjoyed reading their love story because it’s a modern version of the star-crossed romance tale that I always love to read. It reminded me of the classic love story between Romeo and Juliet, Tristan and Isolde, and Abelarde and Heloise.

Contempt by Bethany-Kris Blog Tour and ARC Review

CONTEMPT

by Bethany-Kris
Renzo + Lucia, #3
Publication Date: March 4, 2019
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance

AVAILABLE NOW! (Free with Kindle Unlimited)

SYNOPSIS

How much is too much?

Five years—that was the deal. Renzo Zulla gave up five years of his life to repay a debt to an organization that only wanted to break him before they could make him. Their way, their rules. He doesn’t move without their okay, even if his latest job puts him right in front of her. But the five years are almost up, and he knows exactly where he’s going first.

Love doesn’t follow rules …

Heartbroken and alone—that’s how she survives. Lucia Marcello is alive, but a part of her still feels dead without him. She’s spent far too much time running away from her past and the pain she constantly holds tight because it’s easier than hating the people who caused it. But life has a way of bringing you back when your heart never will.

Love doesn’t fade …

But time means nothing, and forever might be only an illusion for them. Because where fate doesn’t step in, reality does. If hate is a game you play with your heart, and contempt is the game you play with your mind … where does that leave love?

Vendettas don’t care about love.

It’s in God’s hands now.

Note: CONTEMPT is the final book in a three-book

Trilogy following the same couple.

Review:

The stunning conclusion to Bethany-Kris’ star-crossed romance is finally here. The last book in Renzo + Lucia’s trilogy was something that I have been waiting for quite some time now. And as with any BK romance, it far exceeded my expectations once again.

Romance readers like me have a knack of shipping characters so hard that you read the books over again just to relive the story all over again. And in this case, I did that three times. For all three books! That’s how much I love Rezo + Lucia.

The story jumps five years after Renzo and Lucia were separated. Seeing how much they’ve changed yet still clings on to their long-lost love was one of the most heart-wrenching things that I have read. There was a deep void in Lucia’s privileged life that even living far from home couldn’t dissuade the resentment on the things that happened in her life. As for Ren, all he has ever done was to live long enough to survive the harsh world of The League.

But then fate intervened (or was it someone else?) and they met again. The intense connection was still there even after all these years. Both of them have matured in the half-decade that they’ve been apart. The passion, the love, and the heartache all came back when they saw each other again. Their tormented love left Lucia barely surviving but meeting Ren again was like a ray of sunshine after five years of solitude.

I loved how these two have come to terms with the circumstances that tore them apart. But at the same time, they also learned how to love each other all over again. And can I just add that the epic plot twists of this book were off the charts!

I loved how Bethany-Kris’ world comes back in full circle. Giving subtle nods on characters that we’ve grown to love in her other books and also hinting about the stories of characters that we’d love to read about in the future. I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to read more about the characters from Bethany-Kris’ organized crime world!
