Cara & Gian (The Complete Guzzi Duet) Bethany-Kris - Blog Tour

Cara & Gian: The Complete Guzzi Duet

by Bethany-Kris
Publication Date: June 3, 2019
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance



Gian Guzzis problems are piling up faster than he knows how to handle them. A murdered grandfather, an unpredictable mafia, and a new boss that threatens both his family's legacy and his life. He has a duty to the oath he swore. First to la famiglia, and only then to himself.

Duty. Legacy. Love.
Always in that order.
Or that's how it should be.

With the violent uncertainty that has become constant in his days, Cara Rossi should have been only a distraction for him to enjoy. Until she becomes so much more.

The lies?
Their life?
All this love?

It doesn't matter how much it entangles together; unitil still unravel eventually.

And when it does  may God save them all.


Gian & Cara: The Complete Guzzi Duet features the full-length novels, Unraveled and Entangled.


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.

Dirty Pool by Bethany-Kris - Blog Tour


by Bethany-Kris
Publication Date: May 6, 2019
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance, Standalone



To get what he wants, he'll have to play a game of dirty pool.

Michel Marcello never wanted to be a mafioso like every other man in his family, he wanted to be more. That doesn't mean he's unfamiliar with the life, or that he can't hold his own against other made men.

They forgot where he came from. 

His chance encounter with the fiery and beautiful daughter of Detroits most notorious Irish mob boss stokes flames beyond the ones that ignite between Michel and Gabbie Casey. Rivals shouldn't mix, but these opposites have never been more attracted, either.

The lines between family loyalty, their duties, and responsibility begin to blur.

Love ruins all.

But these two aren't the only ones playing this game, and it just became far more dangerous to get out alive.


Dirty Pool is a standalone romantic suspense.


5 stars

I for one am very pleased that BK decided to give us Dirty Pool. I have always been curious about Michel and his journey is spectacular!

Michel is Dante's son. The one who decides to persue a career instead of following in his family's footsteps. That is not to say that he is far removed from being a Marcello!

Gabbie is the daughter of the Detroit's Irish mafia boss. She is a daddy's girl who is somewhat overprotected by her father and tends to go along with what he thinks is best for her.

Whilst keeping himself occupied on his college break, Michel bumps into Gabbie at a nightclub. There is an instant attraction between them, but they come from backgrounds where they shouldn't have a relationship. Being involved could mean no end of trouble. Can they ignore the family traditions and listen to their hearts?

I like Michel's persistence. He has to go through many hoops to get what he wants and I like the way he "speeds" thing up. A totally Marcello move! Something that was overlooked by those who use him for their own end game. Gabbie knows what she wants and goes after it even though she stands to lose something precious to her. This is why she gets on so well with Michel. They make a perfect couple. Their journey isn't an easy one, but full of hurdles. I absolutely love their journey and the end is spectacular. Another great addition to the Marcello saga.

“Yeah. Yep.” His voice sounded gravelly.

When she opened the door, she saw a flash of white, as he flipped the covers back and swung his legs off the bed. He snatched his boxers off the floor, jamming his legs into them and yanking them up. Scrubbing his face, he stalked towards her. “You all right? What’s going on?”

“I believe you.”

“Sorry?” He looked so adorable, this big mountain of a man, wearing nothing but bright red boxers with a green grinch printed all over them. His broad, hairy chest, so toned, so fit, those bulging biceps, and rock-hard thighs—my God.

This man had loved her.

“I believe you.” This time she smiled because those were the three most powerful words she’d ever said.

“Still not getting it.”

“I’ve been working through it subconsciously. I started with total dismissal. No way did Gray Bowie have feelings for me. Then I moved to, okay, yeah, you don’t spend all that time with a pity project. You put on latex gloves and serve her a nice dinner once a year. You don’t lie on her bed, feet against the wall, and talk about her dreams of being a fashion designer.”

He watched her, like the glitter was settling and the image inside the snow globe was becoming delightfully clear.

“But then, the truth started to sink in. You had a busy life. Not just your competitions, but your brothers, your dad, and uncle. And then—bam—it rose right up out of my subconscious and smacked me across the face.” She came closer to him. “Gray, you chose me over time with your brothers. Well, over a lot of things. And I didn’t see it because of them. Of what bullies like Cady and Melissa trained me to believe. That I was trash. I thought flipping them the bird made me rise above it. I thought my little revenge plots made me invincible. But I didn’t see how my impressions about myself and the world came from them. Gray, the idea that you loved me? It just didn’t compute. A guy like you?”

His eyes softened, and he cracked a shy grin. Oh, Gray Bowie all vulnerable like that? That was hotter than anything she’d ever seen.

“I don’t know how it would’ve changed my life if I’d seen the truth,” she said. “But I can tell you it changes me now.”

He didn’t say anything, and awareness broke over her like a cracked egg. Don’t forget that he walked away, stayed away for seven years. He’d had no intention of ever seeing you again.

Oh, God. He was talking about a childhood crush, and she was standing here gushing at him. “I mean, I know you don’t love me anymore. Of course. Obviously. I’m just saying that you’ve given me a whole new perspective on my childhood, and it’s pretty damn amazing. We’re good, though. We can work together without you thinking that I’m, like…that I expect…you know, that I think you’re still in love with me.” She laughed, but it sounded as phony as it felt. “Anyhow. I just wanted to say I believe you. That’s a big moment for me, not you, so I obviously shouldn’t have woken you up to tell you. I could’ve kept that one to myself. So, anyhow. I’m a weirdo. Goodnight.” She gave him a smile she was pretty sure could only be found in a Fun House hall of mirrors and turned to go.

But his years of training served him well, because his arm shot out, wrapped around her waist, and jerked her against his hot, hard chest. “Never keep anything to yourself.” He leaned in until she could smell the toothpaste on his breath and the clean-linen scent on his skin. “I love every damn thing that comes out of your mouth.”

And then he pressed those beautiful lips to hers, and her heart exploded. Desire, sharp and fierce, burst in her core, the current so strong it flooded every fiber and tissue in her body. Immediately, she lost herself in the feel of his smooth, warm skin and the command of his tongue as it took possession of hers.

Gray’s kiss started with supreme confidence, making it feel like he was in charge, that she was along for the ride—a thrilling but controlled ride. One you knew couldn’t go off the rails.

And then it faltered. He let out a sign that sounded utterly desperate. The power of his touch gave way to a tremble in his arms, and his body heated up to blistering.

His control snapped, and he turned reckless, wild. She’d never been kissed like this—like he needed to gobble her up but couldn’t get all of her in at once. Like he needed to consume her, get his fill before she was snatched away. Everything about Gray—his scent, the way his strong hands roamed her back as though he couldn’t believe he got to touch her—the passion in his embrace—lit her up, flipped on all the lights—and she wanted it. She wanted this torrent of yearning and desire and need.

Until those strong hands slid down and cupped her ass and gave her a lusty squeeze. The press of his arousal against her stomach sent up warning flares—sex—and, God, sex with Gray Bowie?

Panic had her hands pushing him away. “I…” Her fingertips brushed across her sensitive lips.

Those blue eyes worked hard to read her, his chest pumping, arms still out so that if she took one step forward her bottom would fit snugly back in his hands.

And it struck her—like really hit her hard—how much she wanted that.

“I’m sorry. I…goodnight.”


The Careless Boyfriend is just as absorbing as the first two "Bad Boyfriend". This best friend's friend and friends to lovers story brings a completely different dimension to this genre.

Gray is an adrenaline junkie who flips from one extreme sport to another. 

Knox has been best friend to Gray from an early age. Whereas Gray comes from wealth, Knox comes from the opposite side. 

Robert is the other one who forms this trio of friendship as well as being Knox's boyfriend.

When things takes a turn for the worse on prom night, Gray who has been in love with Knox forever comes to his senses and cuts the cords. Robert goes for treatment and Knox leaves town to realise her dream of becoming a designer. A fluke accident which ruins Knox's first bridal show reunites Gray and Knox. Gray does his best to put things right and in the process finds that his feelings for Knox never changed. Together they do their best to get Knox's dream back on track and at the same time their friendship turns into more. Just when everything seems to be going the way they want, Robert makes an appearance. He makes an offer to get Knox's show back on track and although Gray is very patient and understanding, he finds that they are settling back into their old routine. He begins to feel like a third wheel again and Robert's behaviour doesn't help. Will the situation be resolved or will things go back to what they were?

I absolutely love Gray's honesty, his kindness and his unconditional love. Knox is determined and focused. Robert, well is Robert! Although there is a lot of angst and friction towards the end, the author turns everything around beautifully to give the desired HEA. Brodie is the only one of the Bowie brothers who hasn't been struck by Cupid's arrow and it will be interesting to see what's in store for him.

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

Cipher (#8 Demonica Underworld) Larissa Ione - Blog Tour

In the war between good and evil, sometimes the biggest battles take place inside the soul…and the heart.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Larissa Ione, comes CIPHER, a passionate and spellbinding novella from the Demonica Underworld Series, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Be sure you grab your copy today!


From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Larissa Ione comes a new story in her Demonica Underworld series…

It’s been seven months since Cipher, an Unfallen angel who straddled a razor thin line between good and evil, woke up in hell with a new set of wings, a wicked pair of fangs, and a handler who’s as beautiful as she is dangerous. As a laid-back cyber-specialist who once assisted guardian angels, he’d been in a prime position to earn back his halo. But now, as a True Fallen forced to use his talents for malevolence, he must fight not only his captors and his sexy handler, but the growing corruption inside him…before the friends searching for him become his enemies and he becomes his own worst nightmare.

Lyre is a fallen angel with a heart full of hate. When she’s assigned to ensure that Cipher carries out their boss’s orders, she sees an opportunity to take revenge on those who wronged her. All she has to do is appeal to Cipher’s burgeoning dark side. But the devastatingly handsome fellow True Fallen has other ideas — sexy ideas that threaten to derail all Lyre’s plans and put them in the path of an approaching hell storm.

Danger and desire explode, even as Cipher and Lyre unravel a sinister plot that will fracture the underworld and send shockwaves into Heaven itself…

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do. **

“Ione has made a major name for herself with her amazing Demonica series.”

~ Romantic Times Book Reviews ~

5 ⭐🌟⭐🌟⭐

This is a marvellous addition to the Demonica Underworld series. It's very well portrayed and the characters are interesting and lovable. Mostly! 

Taking another exciting journey in the Underworld where some of my favourites characters feature, took me down memory lane. It's been a few years since I started reading this series and the storylines never cease to amaze me. 

There is a rebellion coming and when the extent of what's being planned is revealed, Cipher and Lyre find themselves caught in the middle. This story had me completely mesmerised and I can't get enough as this happens to be one of my favourite paranormal series.

Cipher and Lyre are great main characters. There is Hatred. Revenge. Cruelty and romance. The suspense sure kept me on the edge of my seat! Absolutely loved it.

Catherine + Cross (The Saga) (Naz +Roz) Bethany-Kris - Blog Tour

Cross + Catherine

 The Saga

by Bethany-Kris
Cross + Catherine, #1-3, 3.5, 4)
Publication Date: April 8, 2019
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance

AVAILABLE NOW! (Free with Kindle Unlimited!)


Once upon a time, a wild boy fell in love with a sly girl

From high school sweethearts to a criminal King and Queen, Cross Donati and Catherine Marcellos love became a forceeven destructive, it was unstoppable.

They were meant to be.
Even when everything stood in the way.

Fall in love with the saga of Cross + Catherine, and their story of a love revered, and a life lived so unruly.

The Saga: Cross + Catherine is a boxset of the full Cross + Catherine series featuring the full-length novels Always, Revere, and Unruly as well as the series novellas, Cross + Catherine: The Companion and Naz & Roz.


5 ⭐🌟⭐🌟⭐


Cross and Catherine were introduced in the bonus episode of the Filthy Marcellos complete set, and I have been curious every since. Their love story is extraordinary!

Cross is Calisto Donati's son. He has a no nonsense approach and speaks his mind. If anything, he is comfortable with what some some consider to be arrogance.

Catherine is Dante Marcello's daughter. She is a good girl for most of the time, but she has a tendency of being sneaky. Depending on the company.

Cross is nearly fifteen when he meets thirteen year old Catherine. What starts with an innocent relationship leads to so much more in their late teens. He doesn't change much, since he already knows what he wants in life. She doesn't quite know what she really wants. On the one hand, she wants to be good for daddy and on the other hand, she is fascinated by her mother's activities. This becomes the root of their problems but, he is always there to catch her when she falls. 

Something bad happens to her at the age of sixteen and instead of opening up, she finds other ways to cope. Destructive ways! 

They are so good together when they are "on", but even when they are "off" as a couple, she can always rely on him. He would do anything for her. She goes on a self destructing bender and as hard as it is, he finds himself with the only option which might just help her. She lives in a dark place and has to be willing to see the light. 

They are the perfect couple, yet not perfect individuals. Not that anyone is perfect, but there is a limit to everything. It's superbly portrayed and the poignancy of the emotions tore my heart apart. Quite the love story! I can't wait to see what transpires in Revere. 


Revere is an amazing story about two adolescents who are now adults. It encompasses three generations of the same family and takes us down memory lane.

Cross is settled in his role with the mafia. He has grown up and his principles remain the same. There is one piece missing in his life. 

Catherine has learnt to stand on her own two feet, but some old habits die hard. Pleasing others isn't always that easy.

It's been seven years since Cross and Catherine saw each other. So much has changed, but some things stay the same. Inadvertently, they have to cross paths and the past doesn't appear to be so far away. There have been misunderstandings which could now be a barrier. When the lies and deceits come to the surface, they only cause more hurt and anger. True love never dies, though!

Seeing the three generations of the Marcellos and how they have evolved is quite something. Cal's past is not easy to forget under the current circumstances and Cross maturity shines. In his own arrogant way! Can't help but love him. There are some strong messages within this story. It's soulful with potent emotions. Cross and Catherine face some strong oppositions as well as dangerous situations. Good intentions can sometimes be more damaging. I have loved each and everyone of the stories in this series, but this one is something special. It hits all the right spots and this incredible love story will not be easy to forget. And.... there is more. The preview of the next instalment has piqued my interest and I look forward to see what transpires next.


Embarking on this journey with Cross and Catherine has been sheer delight. Watching them grow from children, to adolescents and then into adulthood is quite an experience. A phenomenal couple!

Cross is the the Donati boss and he hasn't changed much. He is still loyal, responsible, loving and beautifully arrogant.

Catherine is making good progress in her business, but still has a lot to learn.

Five years later and their love goes from strength to strength despite everything that's thrown at them. Juggling their time between their personal life and their business life is not easy. Whenever they think that they might have a reprieve something else crops up.

Cross is suddenly faced with a situation which puts the whole family in danger. He does the honourable thing and stands by his men. Respect! Things get out of hands, but he is no quitter. He will find a solution. 

Catherine is going over her own stumbling blocks. She finds herself having to address some difficult issues with no real back up. She is no quitter either! As hard as it might be, she will resolve these problems. 

With their additional personal responsibilities, they crave a work life balance. Things get harder before they get better, but they make the most of the time they have together. Will they be able to relax eventually and enjoy what they have? 

It's refreshing to see that Cross and Dante have come such a long way, after everything that's gone before. There are a lot of changes. Danger is aplenty. One thing doesn't change though. The depth of Cross and Catherine's love. Remarkable! Cece is a handful, but fun with it. I have enjoyed every single part of this trilogy, and sad in a way that it has come to an end. The epilogue is magnificent. This is a love story to remember. Fa-bu-lous darlings!

Naz +Roz 

An amazing finish to the Cross + Catherine series. It's a well rounded novella about finding "the one" and coming to terms with new feelings!

Naz, son of darling Cross Donati is a chip off the old block with very little to separate them. Naz is a born genius.

Ros is a pianist prodigy, daughter to Cross' best friend Zeke, and sister to Luca, Naz's best friend.

Although Naz and Ros have known each other from an early age, lightning doesn't strike until they are teenagers. It's instant love when they meet at a family event. They form an incredible bond whilst struggling with their new found feelings. They don't have much time to explore as Naz's work takes him all over the place and Ros is under pressure with her life long ambition of becoming a recognised pianist. Can they find a balance to meet their commitments and keep their beautiful relationship?

This short story is very well portrayed with a solid and intense plot. Despite their young age, Naz and Ros show common sense and are sensible about their decisions. Best of all is Naz's understanding and support. An adorable love story which ends beautifully.

Saying goodbye to Cross and Catherine is rather emotional, but hopefully there will be more of the Donatis' next generation with maybe a glimpse of Cross and Catherine thrown in!
