Natalie ✩★ The Biblioholic ★✩
The Guzzis have always lived good and as the babies of the family, Beni and Bene got away with a lot. However, when they push their father a bit too far, he decides that the best thing to do is send them away to Chicago so that they can learn some hard lessons and maybe come back with some appreciation and maturity. Things ain't so bad with The Outfit. It's not like they're not among family. And the twins always have each other, so what could really go wrong? Well, when August enters the picture ...more

This series has tanked for me a little, though there's been an improvement with this book. I struggled with the Corrado and Alessio duet, Chris was an improvement and now Beni is getting back to what I love about all things BK.

I loved Beni, loved him! His character is why I inhale this author's books and only rarely do I not get along with both hero and heroine though as much as I adored Beni, August .... not so much. I struggled to connect with her and it was only towards the end of the book t

PSX_20191007_125050 Title: Beni (The Guzzi Legacy #4)
Author: Bethany-Kris

When it comes to organised crimes/mafia romance books I always turn to just a handful of authors and Bethany-Kris is one of them.
You can be assured that when you read her books, you will never be disappointed.


Bethany-Kris always manages to write books that feels dangerous, a little sweet and a whole lot of sexy. Beni was just that and I couldn't put it down.


Beni and August are DIVINE!

The Guzzi Men keep taking my heart. Beni and Bene are identical twins and the babies of the family. They are wild but they are just 21 years olds. Their last stunt has them shipped off to Chicago for a year. They will work for their Uncle Tommas of the Chicago Outfit where they must learn to shape up or else.

Beni meets August and is immediately taken. She is beautiful, driven, smart and keeps Beni on his toes. As it’s always been Beni and Bene, meeting A

OMG!!! YOU GUYS! Beni is legit the perfect example why I adore Bethany Kris' mafia stories. This story was absolutely incredible and outstanding. It was so sexy, raw, intense and full of butterfly inducing swoony moments. Beni and August were just captivating and addicting. I fell in love with them, their connection and their love and never wanted their story to end!

When I read a novel by this author I am always taken aback by how real the characters seem. They are compelling and gripping and th

Wow! Beni is the most like Gian and I loved it. I can't get enough of Bethany's writing. I'm going to read her catalog all over again. Her stories are absorbing, character driven tales. Another interesting component too is Beni's relationship with his twin, his mirror image, Bene. These two were struggling a bit, not being in each other's back pocket. My fav of this series, so far. I'll read it again for sure.

Happy Reading!!

The Guzzi Legacy is one of my most favourite series by Bethany-Kris. Honestly it comes second after The Russians. Each book of this series is a masterpiece and I love it to pieces. Reading each book is like getting a Christmas present.
I so loved Beni and his book. It was so worth reading. All those actions, angst and all other things just made this book so yummy. And his twin brother Bene and their connection. It'so freaky but at the same time so cool.
Loved it and recoomend everyone to read it!

Reading Bethany-Kris is like watching an action movie. It's raw, intense, and captivating.

The mafia world she created is higly addictive and makes every single book unputdownable.

I had so much fun so far. The Guzzi Legacy is probably my favorite series of hers.

Bethany-Kris brings us Beni Guzzi in this standalone book in the Guzzi Legacy Series. Beni and Bene are the youngest twins of Cara and Gian Guzzi. I love this book so hard.

BK never fails to have me so captivated that I can’t help but devour her books in one sitting. I was hooked from the very beginning. The chemistry between August and Beni was off the charts! He is probably my fave Guzzi brother so far. There is something about his character that will have you swooning.

Sweet read with not too much drama. Looks like the next book is going to be the one with the drama. Beni is all alpha sexy as hell and just plan hot! August was a good match for him.

As always will read the next!

A beautiful blend of love and heat…

The buildup between Beni and August was perfect as friends of friends struck sparks from their first meeting. Things escalated quickly with real life problems and challenges hit right away. But, that either works for or against a relationship and nothing was going to stand in their way…

Beni knew when to push and pull and to be romantic at just the right moment. August was a great character too. Strong, smart and full of sass, her love of family matched his whil

Ahhhh these two. They were so perfect for each other. August a planner, while Beni was wild. Her focusing on her career, while Beni was just settling down in what he needed to be doing. Both far from home, staying in Chicago and finding each other across a club. Their chemistry was sizzling from the moment they locked eyes. They both had a lot going on, decisions to be made, and yet all they wanted to do was spend time with each other, to get just a little more of one another.
The action was good

I will admit to an addiction to Bethany's Mafia stories. Beni is another great story that was so easy to read.

Beni like other mafia men is a contradiction. To those he loves you will have his unflinchingly loyalty and protection, to his enemies he is ruthless. August and Beni have intense chemistry they were explosive together. I enjoyed watching Beni's character growth how he has to learn who he is without his twin. Family dramas trouble with rivals and love this book had it all.

Suffice it to say that Bethany-Kris is such a talented writer. The way in which she delivers Beni Guzzi's story is enthralling!!! I read this book in one sitting...just devoured it!

All the Guzzi Boys are absolutely swoon-worthy! They're in a class all their own! Beni is definitely one of my favourites, there is something about his humour and wild side that just calls to me. August is the perfect woman for him. They make an amazing couple with a striking chemistry that is off th

I liked this story and although isn't my favorite of the author I found myself hooked on it from the beginning. It's a story that mixes action, suspense, a great protagonist and romance. A surefire combination that I love to see in stories of this theme.

I really liked Beni, a very well written character who can be protective and faithful to those he loves, while being dangerous to those he should. I liked the relationship and conflict he had with his twin here, it seemed credible and v

I drew a deep breath the moment I read the names of the youngest Guzzi twins, Beni and Bene. How on earth was I going to separate them in my mind? One vowel difference between them was doing my head in right from the start. What a stroke of brilliance to illustrate that on paper they were just as easy to think of as one rather than as individuals.

Beni and Bene were out of control. Acting out, ready to throw their weight around at the slightest slur to the Guzzi family name. They were im

Beni and this identical twin have a reputation for stirring up trouble in low places—most of the time without even saying a word.

The Guzzi boys know better, but they do the opposite—because they can. Some say they are a bit spoiled or maybe they have high expectations and a low tolerance for other people's bullshit.

You don't walk over Beni Guzzi. People can run their mouths, but they better be quick about it...because if Beni doesn't punch them in the mouth, his twin certain will.

I have a thing for watching these made-men becoming fathers and growing up. Beni and Bene are the babies that push everyone's limits in the family but since they're the babies they find themselves not getting in as much trouble as other Guzzi children might have. Until they take it a bit too far. Beni and Bene are sent to Chicago to learn life lessons and to hopefully mature and go learn some respect and appreciation. Sometimes it just takes a good woman, THE woman, to change a man's life. Beni' ...more

This is the 4th book in this amazing series, and is Beni and Augusts’ story. Beni and Beni are identical twins, and when they cross a line their dad sends them to their uncle in Chicago hoping that when they learn some of life’s hard lessons, and they will mature and appreciate what they have. When August comes into Beni’s life, the dynamics between the twins changes, and I must admit my heart went out to Bene, and I just wanted to hug him.

Beni Guzzi and his twin brother (Bene) was considered the mischievous duet without a filter for exploring their horizon and repeated troublemakers for the Guzzi organization. They were in need of a wake-up/grow up call and sent away to be mentored by their uncle in the Chicago mafia organization. The true test began with the tight connection between the close knit infinite wild boys acceptance of their individuality and brotherhood.

The relationship that stuck out for me with this book wasn’t that of Beni and August - don’t get me wrong I did enjoy reading about them. The relationship that I enjoyed reading the most was that between Beni and his brother, I felt like their friendship and the events that happen within their brotherhood were very realistic and I was able to enjoy the development of that relationship (even though it is rather testing for them both).

The usual, BK nails it on the head.

From the wild boy Guzzi twin (Beni) to the heroine, August their magnetic chemistry is sweet and organically easy to fall in love with.

And well who doesn’t love a bestie duo- loving seeing Cam and Aug back together!

So beautifully written and I can’t wait to continue on with the rest of the Guzzi boys ❤️

Benito “Beni” Guzzi is just trying to find his place in the world. He’ll show us that at times it can be quite frustrating. August Rivera is ready for her life to change. I liked that the author built their stories separately first before putting them in each other’s space. And once they are the pages will light up from the heat that’s created.

August has a great friend named Camilla - Cam. She’s the one that asks the questions so that August will give us the answers. Beni is a little more compli

If you are looking for a v-e-r-y steamy, “graphic” smexy read with a side order of mafia served up featuring a set of identical minded twin brothers who suddenly find themselves at odds with one another, Beni may be a book you may want to check into. I must say when I was first introduced to Beni and his twin, Bene, they certainly came off as still having a lot of growing up to do. Immature and entitled came to mind. I was even a little embarrassed for them for being too much alike and their imp ...more

One of the main reasons that I fell in love with Mafia romance is because of this author. She creates characters and depicts a lifestyle that even though is foreign to me it still feels real. Even when she brings back characters from a previous series or book, even in just passing or merely mentioned, it makes me instantly nostalgic for those characters and their amazing stories. This was especially true in this book.

I seriously can't get enough the Guzzi Legacy, and honestly, I'm totally in love with the double your trouble sets of Guzzi twins. This story is about another set of twins, Beni & Bene, and while Bene plays a big part of course, it centers around Beni. See, these two can't help themselves but to always get in trouble together, so their father decided to send them down to Chicago, to work with that particular crime family.
