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

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,

I'm officially obsessed with all things Bethany-Kris (and anyone she co-authors with). She writes mafia stories likes she's lived it. Her bad boys with hidden goodness and heroines that break the mold keep me coming back for more. Where the Sun Hides is a Romeo and Juliet style love story set against a mob background where two families have been at odds for generations and yet two lovers find their way to each other against all odds. But their paths are not easy and definitely

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

Once upon a time, Russians and Italians decided to make a peace between them, for the sake of no more blood. And to show their good intentions, they brought their children with them; Kazimir and Violet.
They had never thought the two make friends in such a short notice but the kids were kids. They were pure, innocent then. They thought the kids would forget and one forgot, the other didn't.



Years later, the Russian Bratva and Italian princessa came face to face again i

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

Amazing!! Thank god I waited till all three books were out else I would have committed Kindle-icide for sure!

What I really REALLY liked is that 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 adults who talked to each other and listened to what the other was saying with no contrived and ridiculous drama for drama's sake.

Straight on to book two.

A mob principessa and a mob prince.
A match made in a heaven?
Hell not! The worst scenario ever happened...




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. But sometimes the pull is not possible to resist. The tension is not possible to overcome. And the love is not possible to ignore. And then the sun hides and the worst thi

“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 friends

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

Wow!


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!

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 duo totally knows how to create an epic tale and goes on blow my mind.

Wow, Romeo & Juliet meets The Godfather. I love it!

Violet Gallucci has always been told how to speak, dress, even who to socialise with! So when a forbidden Russian mobster from her past comes along and threatens to bring a little spice into her life, she grabs the chance with both hands. She just doesn't expect to fall in love with him...
