I wanna read book 2 right away so I’ll come back and update this review when I don’t feel like I’ve got better things to do.

I do have to say tho, I wanna give Alessio a hug! If I had to choose, yeah I’d go with Les. Corrado seems a bit too focused on himself and I need a little selflessness to go with sex on a stick.

I really wanna see Ginevra have some one on one time with Les, so yeah.. onto book 2

"Pick the person you want."

Corrado is the first book in The Guzzi Legacy. With action, raw passion, and deadly romance, Bethany-Kris has created another dark and twisted mafia romance that will keep you on the edge of your seat the entire read! Corrado Guzzi has always known he was different from his Mafia family members. But growing up in a traditional Italian home doesn't stop him from achieving greatness. While training to become a great assassin, Corrado meets the love of his life. Aless
I'm so mad at what I've just read I'm struggling to gather my thoughts together to write a review that will kind of make sense. My brain and heart is hurting right now.

I've ALWAYS said that this author's heroes love like no other ...... till now. Corrado is the exception and I'm sad to say I've found a BK hero that I absolutely despise. He's selfish and cruel, OMG so very cruel. My heart hurts for Alessio.

"Alessio had a bad habit of letting Corrado have what he wanted. Even if it hurt him"

Be still my heart.......Corrado Guzzi and Alessio “Les” Sorrento are my newest addiction. These two men who we meet at the age of 17, ingrain themselves into your soul and Do Not Let Go. They are moody, cocky and similar as they are different. Each not really fitting in, The League is where they meet and their lives connect and make sense.

Corrado and Les are MM but appreciate a woman when one peaks their interest. But their relationship is complicated. Corrado is from

Corrado is the first book in the Guzzi Legacy Series. It blew my mind. I seriously don’t know if I could find the words to clearly explain how I felt reading it and even after I finished.

Corrado is so different from her other hero’s in the Commission World but not. His personality fit his character perfectly. Then there is Alessio. He is so alluring. I was enraptured with their relationship. You can’t help but be drawn to their feelings for each other as Love knows no bounds and I was enamoured

Les and Corrado. Corrado and Les. Corrado, Les, and Ginevra. Oh, these three killed me. Their emotions, their stories, the tangled, tangled webs that Corrado wove. I loved it all.
In the beginning, I enjoyed learning more about the League, what the training process was like. Then thrown into all that was Les. This man that Corrado couldn't quite figure out, but knew he wanted like nothing else. Their relationship, what they each gave and took was so interesting to read. Interesting, and hot. They
OMG....Well, this was a unexpected read..... Although it was a MMF mafia book I gave it a shot !!
It's Bethany Kris book after all right???
Certainly a roller coaster ride all way through but It was so so fucking good!!!! And I really love it !!!
The story was captivating you instantly, it was emotional, sexy, passionate and above all I loved Corrado, Alessio and Ginevra!!

Corrado is an incredibly emotional and compelling story that left me with a serious need for more. Bethany-Kris delivers a powerhouse of a story that is delicious and edgy and sexy. The blend of angst and turmoil and romance made this a captivating story that I did not want to put down.

”Something about Alessio Sorrento drew Corrado in and made every single one of his nerves turn on in a good and bad way. He wanted to run away as much as he wanted to stay right there and do it all over again.“

This author is one that always has me on the edge of my seat. Her stories are sublime and her characters are in a league all their own. She manages to portray a lifestyle that, even though completely foreign to me, seems like home. I can always count on her stories to evoke a maelstrom of emotions. Every new book she writes becomes my favorite. EVERY. TIME. That was most assuredly the case with this story.

2.5 ⭐️ for the spoiled ending!

I liked this book from the beginning until the introduction of Ginny. Now I am confused. It kinda seems like it was the author’s intention to confuse the plot, but I just don’t get why. Corrado and Les’s relationship was not perfect but it was working, and quite steamy at that. Corrado just needed to work on his issues and then they would have lived happily ever after, or so I thought. I don’t understand why Ginny had to come in to the picture and frankly I find her

Okay so if I had to rate this book on how I feel right now then I'm going with 1 to 1.5 at best but if I rate on how well it's written, BKs storytelling and mad skills as an author then I've got to be honest and go with a 5 cos as we all know BK tells one hell of a story and I’m never gonna deny that.

Now I loved the first 50% of the book when Corrado and Alessio meet and the whole “Koi no yokan” thing they had going on, I liked learning more about The League and how that worked. But after that n

"In their life, love was weakness. Love was a fucking target. It was something people could use to hurt you, and when you loved someone that much … you did everything you could to keep it, and safeguard it from whoever might try to take it from you. Even if that meant hurting the person you loved in the process, too. Because sometimes, one had to do what one had to do."

I have read a lot mafia books. Let’s say I am obsessed with the genre. Imagine a hot made man organizing crime and finding love
Wow! What another amazing read by Bethany Kris! I just love this author and everything she writes. The story drew me right in from the very first pages and once I started reading it I could not put it down. The story was gripping and suspenseful and had a great cast of characters that you could not help but love them. This author impresses me each and every time I start reading a book by her, she just draws you right in and grabs your attention right from the very first pages to the very end.

I loved it up until Ginevra was introduced. Les and Corrado had a good thing going and I don't see why she was needed. I have read numerous MMF before and loved them but I don't like how it felt like she was coming between them in this 1. I would've definitely liked it more if they both met her at the same time and I also won't read the 2nd book because it'll feel like Les is only accepting her because Corrado wants her. Without her this would've been 4 stars.

I’ve read every single book of this author. I was a fan before becoming a book blogger and getting ARCS.

Honestly, I’ve LOVE every character and every story. No one does mafia like BK. That’s facts.

I’m not into MMF, authors seem to focus more on the sexual part of the relationship and not the feelings and struggles. It is not as easy as being a relationship, to love someone and then suddenly meet another person and boom let’s have a threesome. The stories

Sizzle to spare…

Oh man, did Corrado and Alessio burn up the pages in this mafia-esque romance! This author knows how to write about the made life and this was a slightly different take on a genre she easily owns. One I can’t get enough of…

Corrado wasn’t sure if he wanted life in the family. He loved his family, very much, but he wanted something different. Little did he know what he would find when he dared to look outside the line… Alessio was wary of Corrado at first but even then the connecti

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 STARS

Corrado is the first book in The Guzzi Legacy and it is set as a duet. This story is spellbinding! Especially when reading how Corrado and Alessio initially meet, to how their relationship develops and grows. I was intrigued when I first read the synopsis and was fascinated with how Ginevra would tie into their relationship once I started reading further into the story. I’m eager to see Ginevra and Alessio’s future interactions, as they were limited to the one initial encounter
Jun 25, 2019 rated it it was amazing
Such an amazing book. You really get to see into the head of Corrado. How he felt when he saw Alessio for the first time and when he saw Ginevra. It's a roller-coaster of emotions though out the story. I also like that you get to see some of the other characters you fell in love with in the beginning. Seeing Corrado perspective on how the Guzzi family sees their mother is so touching.

Be prepared to be left begging for more at the end!

This is an MMF duet story meaning there will be 2 books total

I have never read a MMF book before but I was not disappointed. BK did an amazing job with not only two characters, but three!! No one is ever overshadowed and the before and after Ginerva take works perfectly. I love that we get to see Corrado and Les’s relationship before a Ginerva is introduced.

I will say as much as I love Guzzi boys, Les is one of my favorite characters.

5 Star all around because honestly when is a BK book not 5 stars?!
For me this book was one of the most anticipated books of this year. I was so looking forward to it that read it in one sitting. This book is fantastic like all Bethany's books. The plot, characters, angst made me feel and my heart beat. This is one of my favoutite MMF books. It's not a triangle, it\s love in itself. Can\t wait for book 2! Please, Bethany release it sooner.

Corrado is worth million stars and not just five!

I’m seriously obsessed with this book and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. I loved the plot, it was intense, emotional, passionate and angsty. The chemistry between the characters is undeniable. First between Corrado and Alessio, and later with Ginevra too. At the end of the book, though, I really wanted to hug Alessio. I felt so sad for him. The cliffhanger has me wanting to start the next book right now, I don’t think I can wait.

Corrado is delightfully cocky, a bit broody, and yet he feels everything so deeply. He was born in Cos Nostra. The 'made label' weights heavily on Corrado's shoulders—gotta be this, gotta be that…

Corrado's heart, his bones tell him something else, but Corrado knows the consequence of straying away from the Mafia norm. He doesn't want to disappoint his family.

This book is about being born and bred in the mafioso and what's expected of those men. The emotional effects of those who don't live up to those expectations can be painful and exhausting. Not to forget the prejudice that might surface.

Corrado is the son of a mafia boss. Instead of following in his father's footsteps, he chooses his own path. A path that brings about confusion, pain and fear of being discrimated against and affect his family.
