5 Stars


Unravelled is a fabulous introduction to the Guzzi Duet. I was pulled into the story right from the start. 

Gian is the grandson of the mafia boss. He is a made man, his dream come true. He has the looks, the personality and the sexy accents. Hard to resist! 

Cara is a student. She is from a mafia family, but has left her home to avoid getting mixed up with that way of life. After losing someone close to her, she is more determined to have a normal life. 

Cara has shut herself from the world after her loss. She is having a hard time coming to terms with this terrible ordeal. She needs a push! This push comes along in the form of a friend who convinces her to go on a night out. She reluctantly agrees, maybe it will help to get her out of this rut. Gian, the owner of the club spots her and makes a beeline for her. It's his duty to know his club's patrons! 

He is confident in his approach and before long, they are chatting to each other. Followed by a dance. Then sex. Nothing serious! A casual affair. Before they know it, they start craving each other. The casual approach is not working and they are now addicted. Not just physically, emotionally too. It's the last thing that Cara wants to happen, but she can't resist. Neither can he! 

At the same time, there is a lot going on in the organisation and Gian can no longer ignore the discord between the older and younger generation. He has been manipulated into the situation and intends to change that sooner than later. He soon learns that not everyone is who they appear to be and the betrayal stings! He does what he has to do, but Cara's life can be threatened. He takes the right steps to stop her from being a target and a bargaining tool. Although Cara is not happy, she understands only too well and complies to Gian's demand. Hopefully, everything will return to normal soon!

Cara makes a shocking discovery and it tears her apart. Gian has some explaining to do, but will Cara listen to him? Her pain is so raw and tangible that I felt it right along with her, and this is where this instalment ends. 

It's a well paced. It's full of suspense, betrayal, lies and violence. It's intense and passionate. I am so glad that I don't have to wait to see how and if the situation between Gian and Cara can be resolved. I am going to dive straight into the next instalment. 


Unraveled, the first installment of this duet ended with a painful revelation. This second installment takes us to the conclusion of this journey that is entangled in a web of lies, deceits and so much more. 

Gian is now the Don of his outfit. Something that he has been groomed do be from a young age, and it's what he wants. He is a good boss and he works hard, but he isn't happy. 

Cara is doing well in her studies and doing well in a placement, counselling abused girls and women. She loves helping and is hoping for permanent employment once she graduates. If anything, she works long hours to keep her occupied. It stops her from hurting, if only temporarily. 

Three months later, Gian and Cara have a chance encounter for the first time since that awful revelation. It's a short meeting but their feelings are still very strong. This prompts Cara to pull herself together and move on. It doesn't turn out as she expects! Gian just happens to be in the same place. Their initial unpleasant conversation brings back memories and their hearts win out. Their love is too strong! 

Gian's position expects him to keep up appearances, which means a relationship with Cara is not acceptable. Nevertheless, they try to find a happy medium that will satisfy everyone. It's not so easy, given his past problems! He has more than one enemy, but one in particular is devious, calculated, remorseless and manipulative. There are threats, bloodsheds and more bloodsheds. Gian's is in a predicament, where whatever he does is bound to go against him. The unravelling of the extent of the lies and deceits make him realise that he can't trust anyone! Will he be able to resolve these problems and have as normal a life as possible?

This installment is fast paced, full of suspense and passion. I found my heart melting and then breaking again. It's a brilliantly executed plot with a worthy outcome. I was completely invested in this duet and hope that there are more stories to come with the next generation. 

I was kindly issued with an eARC from the author and the views expressed are my personal opinion.
