Recent Comments "Giovanni"
5+ STAR CROSSED LOVE STARSGiovanni's book completely surprised me, I mean it was angsty, I had some really good feels while reading it but I also had some pretty sad feels too!Giovanni, is the youngest Marcello son. Unlike his two older brothers Lucian and Dante he didn't follow the plans that were set out for him by their father. He dropped out of college and the one thing he does that affects his family the most is that he uses. He's either drinking or doing drugs, probably both. Chasing the u [...]
4.5 Tesoro STARS“I swear my breath, blood, and being to Cosa Nostra, la famiglia – our thing.”The second book in the Filthy Marcellos series is Giovanni Marcello’s story. He’s the youngest Mafia Prince; the troubled one, the black sheep. He is lawless and reckless. It’s his way or no way.Gio is searching for something, chasing something that has him using all the vices available to someone with no boundaries and a limitless supply of cash.

4.5 stars Another Mafia book I enjoyed, SHOCKER I know!! I came to the conclusion that I'm a Mafia addict!Anyways the second book focuses on Giovanni ,the youngest brother in the Marcello family and Kimberlynn Abella. Who is not only the daughter of Nunz Abella an enemy of the father Anthony Marcello, but who is also engaged! I really enjoy reading a forbidden love story, and that is what their story is!Gio knows he is not suppose to want or go after Kim, but does the heart listen to the brain, [...]
I've put this on my "what a surprise that was" shelf because I'm not a fan of reading about drugs/substance abuse so went into Gio's book dragging my heels. If it wasn't for my-read-every-book-in-the-series-in-order OCD I probably would have skipped this, and I'm so glad for my OCD because I ended up loving Gio and Kim. Gio was so very much more than I expected him to be, in a good way.
In previous books, Gio was described as reckless, careless, fun-loving, irresponsible, etc. He was the one the entire family worried over. In this book, we learn how similar he really is to the other men of the Marcello family. Antony did good. Gio has his own way of doing things and showing the strength of his character. I found that he held honour, respect, integrity, truth, and loyalty in high regard. He just didn't take his life that seriously until he found something (or someone) to be seri [...]
4 "from lust to love" starsBR with my gals, Irish, Shanny and SuzDone with the second brother, ready for the third and the last one of the Filthy Marchellos :)Review to come and here it is on April 11thThis was a lustfull story, a forbidden pull and a passionate take on love…when you at least want it, when you don’t even search for it and it hits you right between the eyes…The second of the Marcellos is “Giovanni David Marcello!” Gio was a good capo. One of the highest earners in their [...]
Adore este libro y me la pase muy bien leyéndolo.Después de leer el libro de Lucían, termine muy interesada en Gio, y la verdad es que en su libro no defrauda. Con su personalidad relajada y divertida, termino enamorándome mucho más.Obviamente me gusto todo el drama de las reglas entre Made man, y ver la Mafia de las Vegas, PERO…Así es, aunque ame el libro, igual tengo un pero, casi no vimos interacciones entre los Marcellos. Que es una de las cosas que mas disfrute de el primer libro, v [...]
So disappointing. While there were a couple elements about book one I found subpar, I enjoyed it, especially the characters and the romance. I still have no problem recommending book one as a standalone. This one, however, is just not to my taste in any way. 1. Romance Does Not WorkThey have ONS. She knows who he is, but he doesn't know who she is And yes, he asks. The FMC knew that just being who she was that there'd be deathly consequences to him and her if anyone found out they screwed. She d [...]
3 Stars! I liked it but it was just wasn't as good as I was hoping it would be.I was looking forward to Gio's story. I really liked him in the previous book and thought his book would be a fun ride. Not so much. Giovanni is the baby of the Marcello's family and has a lot of lean way when it comes to all of his mess ups. He runs drugs and owns a few clubs and does very well for himself. He also likes to dabble in drugs and is certain he has control over his using and it isn't a problem. His famil [...]

**Giovanni generously provided as part of the Filthy Marcellos: Complete Collection in exchange for an honest review.**4 "I'm going to give you us." StarsBook two of the Filthy Marcellos tackles the youngest brother of the crew and the woman whom catches his eye. Giovanni and Kim have a whirlwind romance I definitely enjoyed reading. The forbidden aspects of it played right into what I love about those types of romances and the passion here was just as great as in Antony and Lucian's stories. Th [...]
If there was no Dante, Giovanni aka Gio would be my favorite Marcello. As the youngest of the clan, the family always worried about his safety because he never played by the rules. Gio's wild, no hold bars tongue, and fuck you attitude sold me from the beginning. This Capo's honesty and guarded heart will make you fall in love with him at least for me it did. Gio is a Marcello through and through and lives up to the family name so rest a sure he might be the youngest, but in his young years of r [...]
I liked this book a lot but something was missing from the story and I'm not sure what it was. There was drama, action, suspense, the Bethany-Kris stamp on mafia living, and the steamy scenes were hella hot. I didn't care much for Kim and her angsty ways and it took me a while to warm up to Gio, but maybe my reading this series out of order wasn't the best decision. I favored Dante out of the entire Marcello clan and Gio was just okay, though I loved his character growth throughout the story. Ca [...]
“He’s perfect, huh?”“He is.”IM CRYING, Its over! That was such an intense read. I literally couldn't put this one down. Omg i cannot begin to describe my love for the characters. Bethany-Kris did a really good job with the plot. It was amazing! Full of suspense, action and romance. ;) Anyways need to hit the sack, lovely read!
Amo a la Familia Marcello, pero Gio definitivamente el mejor.Reseña en breve
The baby of the family. And as the baby, you get lots of attention no matter your age. Gio is 25 and the one that turns his parent’s hair gray. He's smart and street savvy. He plays hard and he's an impressive Capo. If he could only get his life in order and stop the partying, his family wouldn't have to worry about him. Gio has a one night stand with a beautiful young woman he meets at his brother’s wedding. He knows he should find out who she is but she is too much for him to resist. Their [...]
DNF 40%(view spoiler)[ It's hard for me to continue, once she'd confess to being a thief (for being caught counting cards) and forced into marriage to Francor a few hundred thousand?? She's the daughter of a boss! Like Gio said, there could've been a million ways to resolve this and she agree to become the pathetic wife of a man who couldn't even wait till after they're married to abuse her?!! To a man that gets his cock suck in front of herwell, she's gonna fuck Gio every chance she gets, so ta [...]
I'll just start off by saying I'm so glad you know who got his hands and tongue sliced. ughhh. I liked this book as much as the first. Although i was really anxious while reading most of it, trying to figure out how Gio and Kim would get out of their situaion. It was nice to see Antony and Dante open up a little more in this book too.
4.5 stars*Read thru Kindle Unlimited*
Actual rating: 3.5 starsI suspect this book is one of those "it's not you, it's me" situations. After loving book 1 of this series, I had REALLY high hopes for this one, so maybe that had something to do with my feelings. I know this book has a few tropes that are like catnip for a lot of romance readers, but I didn't really feel like they worked for me. Exhibit A: Giovanni, our hero, is pretty fucked up when the novel starts. Drinking, drugs, everything, to the point where Giovanni's father, An [...]
I wasn't really into Gio during the whole course of the first book, so starting the second book with him as the MC was a little bit tricky for me to get into. However, his character as the misunderstood and lost son of a very accomplished Don really steals away the reader's sympathy. And more than his plight, I fell in love with how strong his character is. You have to be very stupid not to fall in love with the bravery he has shown in this book. Gio <3And Kim. I wasn't really hooked by Kim a [...]
Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I'm in love. I can't stand it. These books have invaded my brain and I want all the mafioso words. All of them. If I could happy dance in front of the author I would. She's a freaking genius ( thank you, Vic for turning my attention to the filthy Marcellos! ) I am stingy with my 5 stars to the point of I will look for faults so I don't have to give five stars. For Antony alone I would award 100 stars. Can he be my dad but also my older sugar daddy boyfriend, is that weird? [...]
“See, we’re Marcellos, Kim. We are not dirty, we are downright filthy.”Giovanni is the youngest Marcello boy. He too is a Mafia prince, becoming a mad man at just seventeen. The rules of La Cosa Nostra are the only rules in life he will follow and that fact has always brought a sense of relief to his father. At twenty six, Gio is an incredible Capo, but his family is worried. Gio enjoys getting high, in fact he prefers it. His father is at his wits end and wants to get him clean, threateni [...]
So good, love these series!
Gio's book follows the same 'struck by lightning' insta-lust trope from the first two books in the series basically the same thing that happened to Michael Corleone in The Godfather.This was more like a filler sex scene novel than the stories in books 0.5 and 1. I found myself skimming a lot something that didn't happen in the first 2 books. Not that there's anything wrong with sex scenes, but those books had a better balance of erotica to story line, imho. And, this stuff wasn't anything I have [...]
Five stars! All the skip stars!! Oh this Mafia Prince. Where has he been all my life! I thought Lucian was good. Giovanni was amazing. Everything I want from a book, and possibly more. When a book leaves you thinking about it the next day. THAT. When a heroine doesn't make you want to punch her in the face. THAT. And when a hero is just deep down GOOD (in his bad world) that he makes your eyes sweat and your heart pound out of your chest with every page turn. Double THAT. I can't say enough grea [...]
Lucian was good, but I liked this one more, if it's even comparable. Different stories, but continues on with the lack of drama between the main characters. I love this author for writing a drama-free series.
