3.5 StarsThis was a pretty solid mafia read that I really wish I had read two years ago."Two years ago" AKAwhen the damned book actually came out. Yeah, yeahwhat can I say? I'm a little slow on the uptake sometimes. Wait, wait, hold onVIEWBREAKSorry. I'm watching my boyfriend Chris Hemsworth in that Huntsman sequel/prequel thing and a sex scene moment pivotal to the understanding of the plot just came on. Hmmmmmm, all done. Yep, that's right, I took one for the team.For science. But anyhotaustra [...]
4.5 FILTHY MARCELLO STARSI just feel like going "Uuuuurgh!!! At last!" I mean come on it feels like it's been ages since I've read a book that I devoured overnight let alone compelled me to write a review. Mafia romances are pretty popular at the moment and as much as I appreciate that, I don't enjoy every single one I read. And lets be honest the plot is basically the same, so the author has to use her writing ability, basically give an old plot fresh life by writing it well. What I loved about [...]
4 FILTHY La Cosa Nostra STARSThis was a BR with Snow, Sasha and Shanny! It was my first Bethany-Kris read and it was loads of fun! I love getting down and dirty with the mob! And Lucian Marcello was all that and more!“Being an Italian born Cosa Nostra family was everything when it came to living life as a Marcello. Family. Honor. God. La famiglia. Onore. Dio. Greed. Money. The business. It all needed to be handled just.”The Marcellos from Antony, the Boss, to his three sons, Lucian, Dante an [...]
*5 mafia Nutella jars*Who ever says that I'm obsessed with mafia books is so very wrong. Obsession doesn't even begin to describe my relationship with the mafioso men heck I'm not gonna even deny the the fact that I'd share my Nutella with them. And that's where our story starts from though denial and negligence are a few things our main hero knows about but that doesn't mean he doesn't get what he deserves.Lucian Marcello an all alpha Mafioso. Being Capo means coming from privileged and a power [...]
Barley 3 Fast-Forward StarsNow Before you all pull out your guns and start shooting me in the ass for rating a mafia novel a 3 starHold that thought for a second lovelies,Give me a chance to explainI'm just saying thatFirst,Let me point out the fact that this book wasn't bad,not at allIt just wasn't good enoughSomething important was missing,Something that makes or breaks an excellent mafia novel.And honestly I can't seem to figure out what "that" isMy thoughts on the plot : Maybe I expected mor [...]
Honestly, not as good as I expected 3.5*I have mixed feelings about this book, I loved 'Antony' and couldn't wait to start 'Lucian' and it started really well but along the way it became apparent that (for me anyway) something was missing. While I liked both Lucian and Jordyn (despite one incredibly stupid moment) I just didn't feel their chemistry, there was sex but I didn't feel the heat or the passion.And while I loved his parents and brothers and the feeling of family I felt the story should [...]
6 "MY-KIND-OF-MAFIOSO" starsreview to come.I'm going inLOL April 8thThis was a buddy-read with my guuurls Irish, Shanny (although I call her Shhh) and Suz and it was a total hit for meI don't know how to put it mildly, so I'll go straight to the head! Dear God, I got shot through the heart and he's to blame – Lucian Marcello (the name itself gives me goose bumps) – Capo, the killer and yet the most gentle and attentive alpha male I have ever met , well had a chance to read about, that is – [...]
Reread 22.-23.02.2016.4,25 STARS!!!"Family. Honor. God. La famiglia. Onore. Dio. Greed. Money. The business."After reading Antony, I made another great decision by rereading this book. Ah Lucian!Lucian is adopted son of Antony, who is mafia boss. Lucian's real father was Antony's best friend John Grovatti. He was killed by previous mafia boss Vinnie Catrolli under false accusation that he was beating his wife Kate, who is also Vinnie's daughter and sister of Cecelia, Antony's wife. Kate isn't Lu [...]
2.5 starsThe mafia aspect of the book was well done, however, I guessed the instigator of (view spoiler)[the hit attempt (hide spoiler)] early on. It was so obvious to me. *sigh*There were a couple of moments in the book where I felt that the writing was exceptional (close to 5 star worthy)-more so than the rest of the book. But overall, it was just okay for me. I tried really, really hard but unfortunately, I didn't love it. If you were considering reading it, don't let this dissuade you becaus [...]
**Lucien generously provided as part of the Complete Collection in exchange for an honest review.**5 "Love can make a bad man a monster."StarsI love this writing style of Bethany-Kris. The story here continues much later in time than Antony but there's still so much symmetry and continuity from that novella to the story of Lucien. As the reader you're privy to a vast, complicated history that resurfaces itself in big ways. The themes of the importance and faith in family and strength are prevale [...]
4 starsAnother great mafia read!
Cazzo merda !!!Meet JordynI really like Jordyn. Despite having a snowball's chance of surviving hell, she's strong and intelligent. She's a survivor, but not a badass. She's open to the less than legal and cutthroat side of the criminal world, but isn't an unscrupulous bitch. It ends up being a good mixture of character traits for me."The only thing Will couldn't take from Jordyn was her mind, her spirit, and her strength. Those were all hers. He couldn't ruin them if she didn't let him." I love [...]
It was okay. I just didn't love it!!
*****5 Stars for Jordyn and Lucian***3 I-stayed-confused-half-the-time stars for the Mafia storylineLucian is adopted son of the local crime boss. Jordyn is just trying to stay afloat unseen in the local MC, The Sons of Hell.Lucian meets Jordyn accidentally in a church confessional of all places (I still believe his mother had something to do with that). They meet again at the strip club the MC owns. This brings unwanted and painful attention to Jordyn. Lucian sweeps in and whisks her away.I abs [...]
CONTAINS SPOILERS! !Enjoyable read. Lucian and Jordyn were great togther:) he is such a sweet ,loving man to her. She was awesome. I love that she didn't take his shit or anyone else's :) I'm not really into mafia stories but I liked this one. aside from the Violence and illegal things they are are good ,loving family to each other lol if that makes sense:) safety : H never loved, had lots of women before but never brought anyone around. no other women drama. no mention of he sex life .h had onl [...]
4.5 starsI was actually debating if it’s a step up or a step down but I’ve decided, it’s a step up for Lucian.I like how at the start, the backstory of Lucian was presented and the family he grew into. No mysteries and all, and I feel I know him already. From the little boy that he was to the man that he has become.“Being an Italian, Cosa Nostra born family was everything when it came to living life as a Marcello.Family. Honor. God.La famiglia. Onore. Dio.Greed. Money. The business.”An [...]
whomp whompppp.DNF at 60%This could have worked for me.ybeEspecially if I hadn't read Sempre by JM Darhower first. WAY TOO many similarities between this book and Sempre for me to enjoy it:1. The nicknames like Tesoro2. The mentioning of the "colpo di fulmine /the thunderbolt.”3. The girl on the run getting involved with the "bad" mafia principesso 5. The 'adoptive brother' story line 4. The next book's story line is also too similar to JM's By Any Other Name (rival family son / daughter falli [...]
I really, really like how Bethany-Kris writes her heroes. Who woulda thought that a Mafioso would land up on my perfect hero shelf? Lucian looks really good on there. I absolutely love how into Jordyn he was from the get-go, he was all IN. I wanted more from the suspense plots which is why this is not 5 stars
This is absolutely one of the best books i have read this year. I would rate it A++++++, if i could. The hero and heroine make the prefect couple. The way he hero acts towards the heroine is so sweet. I wanted to cry when he was sweet. Every page was amazing. LOVE LOVE LOVE
**** WARNING: THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS!! ****4 Mafioso Meets MC Stars!!This Mafia Romance book was written how I prefer my mafia books. It’s not full of hardcore violence however; it is a Mafia book so there is some violence.Lucian lives with his adoptive parents who have loved and nurtured him since he was eight years old. His father Anthony is Dom of their organized crime syndicate. Lucian became part of their family when Anthony found Lucian living on the streets after the death of his [...]
4 Stars!I really do enjoy a good mafia book. Although this one wasn't nearly as gritty as I like them I still enjoyed it. Lucian Marcellos had a difficult childhood that he has grown from but still sometimes keeps him up at night with bad dreams. He's known to roam the halls and is the quietest of the brothers. He was taken into this family and adopted at the young age of 8. He has never felt like he wasn't a part of the family though. The family being a strong Italian mafia one. He has two youn [...]
When I started this series with Antony, I knew that each book would be interesting. This author's writing style and her male characters are absolutely brilliant!!I loved Lucian. I think it all started when Antony found out about his existence. It blossomed when he was found and adopted into the Marcello family. And it flourished as he grew into a well-adjusted and much loved man.I liked how his personality and mannerisms were traced back to both of his fathers, John and Antony. The whole nature [...]
I enjoyed Lucian, and felt like it was an intriguing mix of MC gang and Italian Mafia. The mafia world is described well and I can tell a lot of research was put into it.Our heroine, Jordyn, is a 'possession' of an MC club and they treat her pretty horribly. There's definitely a dark side to the first part of the story where there are some graphic descriptions of physical abuse to the heroine.Lucian is the son of the boss of NYC, and when he sees Jordyn for the first time he's immediately drawn [...]
3.5-3.7 ⭐️⭐️⭐️. This book wasn't bad, but there is just something about it, that wasn't very good either.This is a series dealing with 3 brothers who help their father run one of the largest Cosa Nostra crime families. This particular story is about the oldest son Lucian.The synopsis of the book was intriguing and all in all it stuck with it so there is no need for me to reiterate that in my review. I'm just going to give you my issues I had with the story. Ok, so Lucian sees Jordyn [...]
It was good and i enjoyed it but being italian i didn't like some of the errors the author made when using italian,maybe i'm too finicky but some things i can't get over.I also think that a member of the mafia would never divulge who he is and what he does to a woman he just met,especially an outsider.And Lucian was too weepy at times.

Marking as thinking about. Will read when I get in the right frame of mind to not get bothered by the fact that these are not good hearted MCs. These are killers. Hero sounds like he treats the heroine right, though. :)
DNF at 31%This is so sad though because I was really enjoying the actual storybut the insta-love was simply too much to overlook. I can't stand insta-love, so this was unfortunately a dnf for me.
DNF at 18%. h is not for me. I don't like it when women just accept the cards that life has delt them without fighting to make life better for themselves. Hate when they feel they need someone else to save them. (view spoiler)[Seriously?! The h is going to just sit on her couch waiting for the bad guys to come. She thinks that fighting and/or running away won't work, so why bother. It's better to sit back and take it. Ugh! And, this is the same woman who gets a name of a man tattooed on her body [...]
