SYNOPSIS

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 …

Note: Marcus is a standalone romance within The Guzzi Legacy series.

EXCLUSIVE REVEAL EXCERPT

Sometimes, her designs came from things she wanted to see, because that’s what the client preferred. Knowing what little she did about Cara Guzzi, she thought perhaps the woman might prefer her spaces to be designed more to her personal tastes.

But that would be hard to do when apparently, this was meant to be a surprise. It wasn’t as though Cella could go have dinner with the woman, sit down and chat about what she wanted to see in her penthouse. Or hell, even bring the woman here to do it.

That made the job more interesting.

And tough.

Cella liked a good challenge, though.

It was only as she was coming out of the main bathroom that she realized how quiet Tiffany had become during her mother’s walk-through of the place. Not that she was concerned her daughter found trouble because that was the last thing her child seemed to do.

Soon enough, she found Tiffany.

In the living room.

With a man.

His back stayed turned to Cella as the unknown man kneeled in his sharp, black three-piece suit that seemed tailored-to-fit on his tall, lean form. Broad shoulders covered by expensive fabric led down a back made up by hard, firm lines that had Cella stopping in the entryway to the space instead of walking forward.

Well, that, and his laugh.

It was a lovely sound.

Deep.

Full of bass.

Every part of her heard it and felt it, she was sure.

It was then that Tiffany finally noticed her mother.

“Ma!”

The man stood and turned to find Cella standing in the entryway. At first, his face took her by surprise. If only because it felt like she was looking into a mirror of Gian Guzzi—only a younger version of the man, with just slight differences. Just enough, really.

A strong jawline. Squared chin. Dark, thick brows lifted when his smirking lips curved higher in a sensual smile. His brown eyes—flecked with gold—looked her over. His hair, a dark espresso color, had been cut into a style that allowed him a bit of length at the top but was trimmed short along the sides. Mostly, it just seemed as though he brushed the strands back to keep them from falling into those eyes of his.

Eyes that still hadn’t looked away from her.

“Cella,” he said. “Good to see you again.”

She swore it was like stepping back in time.

They’d met before.

At a very dark time.

Back then, Cella hadn’t taken the time to notice very much about Marcus.

“Marcus Guzzi.”

His smile deepened. “I hear you need me.”

Did she?

Cella dragged in a quick breath.

Her heart thumped hard.

What was that?

Review:

The last installment of the Guzzi twins is here, and it was all worth the wait. I first had a glimpse of Bene in his twin brother’s book. And I must admit, his broody and angsty attitude made me very intrigued about his story. All I can say is that it totally did not disappoint.

Bene and Vanna together are one hot combustible duo that will totally get you hooked until the very end. As per usual, Bethany-Kris wrote another great world-building novel that I can’t help but stay positively entranced.

I loved how she portrayed Bene’s identity crisis from setting himself apart from his twin brother’s identity. Bene’s search for unraveling his own identity and independence was so real and raw. I couldn’t help but root for him as he rose past his mistakes.

And I couldn’t get enough of Vanna either. Her story was one interwoven from a bitter feud of the past. That bitter family animosity has long been past to her. I was enthralled by the way she started to fall in love with Bene. Her motivations might have been based on lies and deceit but you can totally see that the love was real.

Vanna is the kind of complex character that you will just love and hate at the same time. Falling in love with the enemy has never been so bittersweet. And this book totally nailed it.

I cannot wait to read about the last book in the Guzzi legacy series. Marcus is up next!

BENI

AVAILABLE NOW!

SYNOPSIS

Chicago has never been more fun, or dangerous …

Sent away with his identical twin to get their wild ways under control, Beni Guzzi expects nothing to change. Same crap, new city, right? But if the boss of the Chicago mob can’t set the principes straight, then nothing will.

And then she rolls into town.

Stuck in a job that seems intent to keep her working behind a desk, August Rivera hopes a trip to the windy city for an assignment will make the magazine finally give her a spread. But getting to see her best friend, well, that’s just a bonus.

And then she sees him from across a club.

With a gang causing trouble for the Outfit, and a Capo’s crew in shambles, Beni has a million other things to focus on except the beautiful New Yorker who keeps finding her way into his bed. The thing is, when he’s with August, everything is better—easier.

Falling in love while handling family drama and mafia affairs is anything but simple … and in this business? It only takes a single mistake to lose it all.

That lesson can’t be taught, and it always comes too late.

Review:

The Guzzi men have taken my reading list by storm this year! The whole series by Bethany-Kris is just a gift that keeps on giving. And Beni is another masterpiece that I adored.

I loved the conflict between the twins and how they forged their own path in the life of organized crime. I loved how Beni was just the right kind of wild that will take you in a whirlwind romance and just sweep you off your feet. August is one extremely lucky girl and she’s as besotted as he was.

It was so fun to see how she kept him on his toes. I loved her strong and independent woman vibes. It’s something that I really look for in a heroine. And August totally fits the bill! She’s smart, driven, beautiful and she knows it. Most especially, she knows her worth. I especially loved the story about how she navigated through her career. It was something that made me love her character even more.

The twin’s dynamics (Beni and Bene) were explored in this book. I can’t wait to see how this story unfolds in the next one.
