SYNOPSIS

A vendetta can change everything …

Bene Guzzi is walking a fine line. In his family, the mafia, and even with his own twin. Being a Guzzi principe means he doesn’t have time to be a screw up, so he needs to fix it and fast.

Vanna Falco is nothing that she seems. Her angel’s face hides a past filled with pain and her secrets might be enough to finally take the Guzzi family down for good. That is, if no one finds out the truth.

But everything gets trickier when people who shouldn’t be together, start to fall hard. And no one is more dangerous than a Guzzi in love.

The lies between them, though?
Well, they might ruin it all.

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

by Bethany-Kris
Guzzi Legacy, #4
Publication Date: October 7, 2019
Genres: Adult, STANDALONE, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance

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.

EXCLUSIVE RELEASE EXCERPT

Spinning around while taking a sip of the hot coffee, August came face to face with a smirking Beni. Damn, he looked good today. Gone were the dark wash jeans, leather jacket, and the Converse shoes. Oh, sure, she liked him in that, too, but today he had settled on something a bit more … classic, and fancy.

Black slacks, and a white button down that was rolled up to the elbows. A blazer hung over his arm, forgotten, likely because of the current summer heat sweeping through Chicago. No tie, she noticed, but that was okay because he’d left the top two buttons of his shirt undone, giving her a peek at the golden skin of his throat, a couple days’ worth of facial hair covering his jawline, and the way his Adam’s apple bobbed when he looked her over, and swallowed.

So good looking.

Did he know how he looked?

Because Jesus

At least, August didn’t feel underdressed standing in front of him, considering she had thrown on a black dress with elbow-length sleeves, a scoop neck, and a pencil skirt that fell to her knees. Black pumps matched the dress, and she went for a simple, rose gold necklace and matching earrings to draw attention to her little makeup, and the braids she had piled high on her head in a spiraling bun.

She did have a meeting today—one that involved talks about a possible job. She had to look professional, didn’t she?

“No work today?” she asked.

Beni flashed her another one of his sinful smiles. “Nah, I had better things to do.”

Was she one of those things?

He was here.

So … yep.

August liked that.

Too much.

There was something about a man that made a woman his priority that did it for her. Beyond sex, a man that cared enough to put in effort … it was all about the fucking effort with a woman like her.

She appreciated it.

“And you didn’t answer me,” he said. “Is this the second date?”

She gave him a look. “We didn’t really have a first.”

“Well—”

“That was not a first date.”

Beni chuckled, shoving his hands into his pockets as he looked her over from head to toe. There was something about his slow perusal that had her heating up from the inside out, butterflies beating hard in her stomach all the while.

What was he doing to her?

“So, we consider this a first date, then?”

August nodded. “And depending on how it goes, well, we’ll see about another one.”

His dark, husky laughter coated her in something sinful and wicked as he stepped alongside her to wrap a strong arm around her waist. He pulled her into his side for a one-armed hug, his mouth coming down to press a quick kiss to her soft line of baby hair along her forehead.

“Never stop doing that,” he told her.

August tipped her head back so that she could stare up at him. “Do what?”

That—keeping me on my toes. Nobody ever does that anymore, and I like it.”

Noted.
