Holy Sh*t! For a true lover of Mafia romance, it's pure bliss when you get a clash between the Cosa Nostra and Bratva!!! I'm speechless here. My mind can only wrap my head around one thought - when's book 2 coming out?!!!!

So here I go again. Bethany-Kris is THE Queen of Mafia Romances! I can’t get enough of her books. Without a doubt, if I need a mafia fix, Bethany is my go-to. I don’t need to read the blurb or think about it, simply one-click! And this woman has never done me

A whole lot of this…

And two very powerful criminal fathers…

This was a forbidden romance between two people of different worlds. It's fast paced,sweet and hot. I enjoyed the story line and the writing! Bethany Kris is the reason I love mafia romances she is a master on this genre!!

They start out being friends when they were kids and it was innocent.The people around them thought they will forget.. But now after years they meet again...and even if it's forbidden for them to be together, nothing can stop them... or so they think.

I loved this story,

Once you care, you are fucked.
And Kazimir Markovic was fucked.
The Bratva Prince has fallen for the Principessa della Mafia in a way that makes Romeo and Juliet look like amateurs.
This is the first book in the trilogy and I’m totally hooked.
Bethany-Kris delivered an even balance of Bratva violence, Cosa Nostra violence and forbidden love between two rival Families.

And yes it’s a five from me.

This book is fabulous and I’m so glad all three are out. This is a modern Romeo and Juliet. Violet Gallucci is a Mafia princess. Kazimir Markovic a Bratva prince. They were introduced once as children but were never supposed to meet again. But life had other plans and once they meet again nothing can keep them apart.

I loved everything about this (hence the 5*). It’s straight onto book 2 now...

When a meeting of two nemezises, Russian bratva and Italian famiglia were the ultimate enemies, different poles to the same rule, to the same crime, to the same code of a lifestyle – mafia, brought in conntact two little souls yet unaware of the mortal animosity of mafia life, nobody suspected the outcome unfavorable for them both. They were just cover up pawns in a supressing game of rivalry. And were never supossed to meet again.

Amazing!! So glad I waited till all three books were out else I would have committed Kindleicide for sure.

This could have so easily turned into a push 'n pull fest and it didn't, given the circumstances of them being together. Instead I got two fabulous characters who talked to each other and listened to what the other was saying with no contrived and ridiculous drama for drama's sake. Loved it!

Kazimir Markovic, the younger son of the Russian Bratva boss, didn't have much of a good relationship with his father, but he did his job well and know where his responsibility lies.

Say wut? Star-crossed lovers? Mob romance?

Ooh, this new series by Bethany-Kris and London, I dig it! London’s a new-to-me author, but not Bethany-Kris. As much as I keep telling myself no more series for me, I keep getting sucked in. Here’s one good example of that.

It’s like Romeo and Juliet set in New York with the mob backdrop; she of the Italian Cosa Nostra and he of the Russian Bratva. Meeting once as children, these 2 moved on with their merry lives until

A modern Romeo and Juliet story- The Russian Bratva and The Cosa Nostra do not mix and when Kazimir Markovic and Violet Gallucci collide, it is fireworks instead of dynamite that occurs.

There is a past that these two share but it’s not one that they understand. But when they reconnect as young adults, there is a connection and a passion that no one can deny. They shouldn’t act on that lust they feel but sometimes when the connection is real, they have to overlook the warning a

This book was sooo good. The way Kaz and Violet's love story began was too sweet and adorable for words. Their relationship and growth with one another was very genuine. But of course, they were forbidden to even see each other, so you know s**t is going to hit the fan at some point. Kaz was great. He's all about his bratva, but isn't a blind follower. He's so sweet, honest, and protective with Violet. Violet had to learn some harsh tr

I said before London Miller is one of my favorite authors and this is a fact, for her I entered a totally different literary world. The Mafia.

When I knew I would be writing with Kris Bethany I am beyond excited although I had never read anything of Bethany Kris. I wanted to see what they could give us. Two authors who write about Mafia. But knowing the writing from London and had high expectations about it.

The streets of modern New York are carefully divided between two families - The Russians and The Italians. They know the rules, they know the boundaries, they know better.

Bethany-Kris is well known for her Italian mafia and London Miller for her Russian mafia books. What happens when these two talented authors co-write a book? You get a forbidden love story between Violet, an Italian principessa della mafia and Kaz, a Russian Bratva heir.

After half a decade of fighting between the Markovic Bratva and the Gallucci Cosa Nostra, a street war that killed nearly thirty men between their respective organizations, there
I like when crime worlds collide. In this case Italian mafia princess Violet Gallucci and Russian mafia heir apparent Kazimir Markovic met as children during a clandestine talk that never happened. It was fleeting but set so many things in motion.

This is new adult, but most of the couple's conflict is external, saving us from the over dramatics that plague New Adult sometimes. I love me a good Russian hero, and Kaz delivers. Violet is a likable too.

This was a good read. Violet Gallucci and Kazimir " Kaz" Markovic have grown up in the same city, but on opposite sides of the game they call life Violet, an Italian principessa della mafia, and Kaz, a Russian Bratva heir. Lines have been drawn, and they know not to cross them. Kaz a capo in his father Vasily's Russian Bratva. Violet the love of his life they met a kids.

“You should have kept those curtains closed, Kazimir.”

This is the story of two kids who met in a graveyard while their fathers shook on a treaty that would change the mafia world for the better, a deal between the Italian and Russian mob, a deal that would stop the war but would draw firm lines in the land. These two innocent kids were pawns, but together, for that brief moment in time they found

Firstly, can we just admire the beautiful cover? It's so simple and yet so beautiful at the same time. All the contrast and layers, from the portrait of a women who blends in so well with the black background to the pop of color and cool font. All eye-catching! It makes you want to know her story. Is she hiding something? Only one way to find out!

First thoughts: Considering adding a shelf 'still breathing'!!!


Bethany-Kris has become an author who, when she announces she has a book releasing soon, I pay attention. What impresses me to no end, is when she co-authors a book the result is a flawless combination of talent. Each author Bethany-Kris works with has been impressive, including London Miller!

Children weren’t like adults. They didn’t understand the boundaries between cultures, and surely not ones as difficult as Cosa Nos
