The genius and the prodigy ...

Nazio “Naz” Donati is brilliant, sinful, and criminal. A genius from the moment he was born, and a man who's still trying to learn how to navigate and balance this thing called life. He certainly wasn't expecting love to practically fall right into his hands, never mind for love to take the form of his best friend's little sister.

Is there anything this author can't write? Nope? Didn't think so. THIS is how you write an incredible novella! It's YA/NA with all the feels and none if the fabricated YA/NA hoopla that's served up with books in this genre.

I loved very single word. Another total winner by one of my all time favourite authors (and even has her very own GR shelf to prove it) 😁

Throughout this entire read my face was in a constant state of bliss. Naz and Roz are children of past Characters written by Bethany Kris. I absolutely loved everything about this novella except that it was way to short. #SorryNotSorry - I wanted more and I could have read lots more chapters about Rosalynn Putta and Nazio Donati.

I absolutely LOVED Nazio and Rosalynn’s story. Reading it makes you feel all giddy inside. They are adorable and young but at the same time they have this maturity that doesn’t exactly make it seem like you are reading a teen romance. I applaud Bethany on that because her writing is always amazing and she knows exactly how to write characters together to make you fall in love with every part of the book and its characters. Definitely a must read and perfect ending to Cross and Catherine’s series ...more

Cute but this was the epitome of insta-love, literally love at first sight. They fell into a relatively drama free love while barely getting to know each other. The one obstacle they had was that staying together meant a long distance relationship, which isn't something I care for in a romance.

This was all love at first sight and a story of two people getting to know each other, while both chasing what they want out of life.
Naz, with his glasses and filthy mouth, won me over from the very beginning. Just the right amount of gentleman and freak. I loved him. Plus I got a kick out of him being the boss' son, but still having to run around like nobody's business in pursuit of what he wanted. His genius mind never stopped trying to learn how everything worked, until he came face to face w

O último livro da série Cross e Catherine vem contar a história de Naz , o filho prodígio mais novo deles e de naz ,uma jovem pianista e filha de Zeke, o melhor amigo do Cross . Aqui temos um caso de amor instantâneo, pois mesmo se conhecendo a vida toda , foi só quando Roz tinha 17 anos que Naz reparou densa e se paixonites instantaneamente, o que geralmente não curto muito.

O livro é fofinho , um caso de primeiro amor e que me lembrou um,pouco a história dos pais de Cross ( sem o dra

I absolutely love BK's mafia men and the Donati's have a special place in my heart. First we had Calisto #swoon then came Cross #doubleswoon and now Naz and I just loved him ❤ He most defiantly lived up to my Donati expectations.

This little novella packed a big punch and I loved every second of it. Even tho Naz and Roz are young there wasn't any foolish manufactured drama, it's full of sweet first love romance and they were really cute together 😊

I LOVE Cross and Catherine and I have to say I LOVE Naz and Roz. I don’t want it to end! Great story. Great couple. So sad I could cry because I love stepping into their world.

Quick read but nothing new, nothing that makes you want to stay awake all night reading. Very simple story, felt incomplete and missing things, a bit rushed. It has the hype from the other books but was a bit disappointing.

Another 5 star read!

I really enjoyed Naz and Roz's story. It always amazes me how easily it is to become invested in every single character written by Bethany Kris, but that is due to her ability to create a world full of diverse and original characters and plots. Naz and Roz are young and just beginning their adventures and it is so great to get to see how they have been influenced by their families too. You realise how much you loved Cross and Catherine and it doesn't come as a surprise when y

This is an Insta love story.
Though the couple have grown up within the same circle the heroine was too young so the Hero 'sees her ' for the first time at the start of this story.
Naz is totally devoted to Roz.
Both are highly intelligent in different ways and their minds consume them but being together calms both their minds. But its working out how.

What a disappointment. The promising baby in the leather jacket who everyone says is "his father's twin" ... is in fact NOTHING at all like Cross Donati. It's as if every other generation of Donati men are uninspiring because Nazio is more like Calisto.

I had no expectations from Roz because I thought Nazio's personality would be sufficient and the Puzza's were on my list as long as it took to save Katya from her fiance but as an individual, Roz is interesting. If only we got to know her better.

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

Not the quintessential mafia story, but just as good. Two prodigy’s in their own right fall in love at first sight. Of course there are obstacles and families all mixed up in the midst but that is the beauty of these stories about these very special families. How they deal with their version of normal life. It’s a great read. B.K never disappoints. I personally love every layer that she adds to these families generation after generation. I hope she never stops writing about the Marcellus Donatis ...more

Naz and Roz are the epitome of first love. They both fell pretty hard and quickly. Naz is a grown man now gone is the little boy who smeared peanut butter in his dad's office lol. Roz was such a sweet heart. It was nice getting glimpses of previous characters especially Cross and Catherine. My little Cece got married to her first love Juan. This was the last book for the Donati's and I'm sad to see them go. I'll definitely read any and everything Bethany Kris writes in the future!!!!

Ugh, I love Naz & Roz so much. I honestly never wanted to put the book down. Naz is so much like Cross that it truly makes me tear up. Lol. Now Cross is starting to know how Calisto felt.

WE NEED MORE. I want to see how their relationship evolves as they get older. Roz evolving into a her musical career. Naz evolving and moving up ranks within the Cosa Nostra. I honestly hope we get a few books on them.

I really LIKED this book, when I usually love all of Bethany Kris books. Maybe I've become used to those relationships that rip your heart into, then slowly mend by the end of the book. Roz and Naz have it easy, compared to the rest of their clan.

This book is a simple love story. No flash bangs, no jeopardy, just boy and girl fall in love...The End. I was disappointed cause, hey, this is a Bethany Kris book.

Is it really over?

Brought on a few years reading the scene between Cece and Nazio. So pure and just beautiful. I fell in love with Cross and Catherine and nothing has changed. Though Max is a terrible little shit, I loved this book. And I really love Roz; she felt so realistic and relatable. Just a young girl in love. I can't get enough of this family.

Can this really be over?

Love them!

Just when you thought your heart was full of Cross and Catherine, we get their son, Naz, to add to the fullness. And it is a good, warm feeling. It's a story of first love and what that craziness is like in the beginning. It is almost...ALMOST parallel to his parents young love but slight differences. You can't help but smile when you get to the end. Wonderful job and I never want the stories to end for this family.

Like father, like son...... Naz and Roz is a sweet, short, steamy read.

Naz is just like his father in every way, the apple definitely doesn't fall far from the tree. A gentleman and deeply in love at first sight.

Roz has been in love with Naz for awhile, but was never seen as anything else other than his best friends little sister. One night changes that for her.

It was also nice to see both sets of parents make brief appearances. Give this book a read, but make sure to read Cross and

Can't get enough of the Marcello's and now the Donati's. Naz was so much like Cross and I LOVE Cross!!!! Wasn't long enough for me but then again I could read another 5000 pages in this world and not complain. I could literally read about them doing the most mundane things and have the biggest smile on my face.

No!!! I didn’t want it to end!

Another great book by Ms Bethany-Kris! This author has become one that I need to give myself a day for because once I pick up a new book of her’s I just can not put it down. I absolutely loved Naz & Roz!! My only complaint was that I didn’t want it to end even though it ended perfectly. I just wanted more!

Thank you Bethany for another wonderful tale from the Donati clan. I read every word of their lives and have missed them. I love that Nazi is so much like Cross and therefore like Cal. Great work
