Note: I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

HOT, HOT, HOT!

This novel had everything - family, drama, romance, danger, politics of crime, action, thrills, everything you'd ever want in a crime family romance novel.

Goddamn, the characters meshed so well together, I rooted so hard for them. The family was just as wonderful, the writing oh my god loved it, the danger, action, drama was to die for.

I loveeeed this novel so so so much. Fantastic one it was.

I hope I get to read more by this

Absolutely Loved Reading this Book, Frances Paul makes excellent use of words in her books.
She is able to capture chemistry , suspense... etc which keeps you so intrigued in the unfolding story.

She beautifully captured the undeniable chemistry between Kennedy and Tristan and the suspense carried through out the story of the Morretti Family.

This book is a must read and all her other books which I have had to opportunity to read .

Wow, what a mammoth book! Two books originally but now that it’s one means you don’t have to wait for the second part to be released. It is a long book and at times I felt the pace slowed right down because there were quite a few unnecessary bits and some repetitions. I enjoyed the story overall but found my interest flagged a bit because of this.

The lead characters, Tristan and Kennedy, did have good chemistry and were red hot passion wise, however, I did like Kennedy more than Tristan, perhaps

My first time reading this author and it won't be the last. This book was a drama filled, action packed and romance rolled into one. It was sexy and hot!! Tristan and Kennedy had amazing chemistry and heat. The pilot was well developed and it had great character development. I'm looking forward to reading more from Frances Paul.

I am really ashamed to confess that it took me so long to discover Frances Paul's books. Because let me tell you, she is a brilliant author and all her works are amazingly written. Especially this one, "Kennedy & Tristan: Moretti Crime Family Novel".
This book draws you in right from the beginning and till the very end. The pull you feel it has towards you is so powerful and addictive that you will be unable to put this book down until after you've finished it.

Loved the book it was great, the story was well written and the characters were intriguing. Wow loved it. I was on the edge of my seat the suspense in turning page. Kennedy is a student in Italy and she passes Tristan who is the head of the Moretti family. The chemistry between them was hot and steamy.

Kennedy and Kiara aka Kiki were daughters of Marina and Robert Phillips. Marina was of German Descent and Robert was an African American. They moved to Panama City as Robert received a job as a Civil engineer. The Phillips moved from Boston in the 80's and at the time they were only dating. Their two girls were only a year apart and they loved each other dearly. They were raised as strict Catholics. Kennedy has not yet accepted a college yet because she had not received the college acceptance sh ...more

I was not sure what to expect with this book based on the description but I am so glad that I chose to read it. If there was a higher score than 5, this book would be an 11. Ever since the first book I read by this author, I have been hooked and she keeps elevating the bar with each of her stories.
“The universe is full of wonderful opportunities, and you should never limit yourself to mediocrity.” This quote from the beginning chapter sets the stage for the powerful storyline that follows. Kenn

HOLY EXCITING HELL!  Kennedy & Tristan was one hell of a crazy ride that had me exhausted after I finally devoured it all.  There's so much going on with this suspenseful story that I'm not actually going to give any more detail than you can get from the blurb because honestly?!  You shouldn't be wasting time with reviews when you can actually be experiencing all of this goodness that will have you all kinds of jacked up.  Man, there are twists upon turns & turns out of control twisted up, makin ...more

Kennedy is a civil engineering student who travels to Italy to complete her studies. Tristan is the head of the Moretti Family, and from the moment these two meet the chemistry is explosive and undeniable. Will Kennedy be dragged into the underworld? No spoilers: this is a definite must read you will not be disappointed. This is a well written story which had me on tenterhooks, and is raw, gritty, action packed, and filled with drama, suspense, and love, which all had me intrigued and hooked thr ...more

This is my first time in reading this author, most definately wont be the last. You had me hooked from the very beginning!
This is Kennedy and Tristan story. I really liked these two. The dynamics between these two characters is great.
This book is well written and isn't your normal run of the mill mafia story. It portrays and delivers so much more!
So if you're into mafia-style romance I recommend this one.

Excellent

Wow This book will pull you in from the first words don't expect a sugar coated Mafia story because that's not what you'll get be prepared to be swept along with Tristan Moretti as he takes over the Family business when he meets Kennedy in his club although he wants her he's not prepared to fully commit to her the way she needs him to and this is the only the start of how things roll out This is a very good story at times you will think how do this couple work through their issues

Kennedy and Tristan isn't your normal mafia story. It's darker and twisted. Their journey goes deep into the underworld of betrayal, lies and danger.


Even though Tristan and Kennedy have an explosive chemistry obstacles are thrown in their path testing their relationship.


Kennedy and Tristan will suck you in with unexpected turn of jaw dropping events that will have you craving more in this action packed drama.


I recommend any of this author's works!

This is the 3rd book I've read written by Frances Paul; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the characters.

What a wonderful story. I finished my ARC of Kennedy and Tristan by Frances Paul. Be fore warned this is a long book but it will hold your interest. This book was an exciting adventure of two people in love. There were so many ups and downs that you couldn’t stop reading it. Tristan met Kennedy in Italy while she was going to college and he was a mafia boss. Needless to say, things get very, very interesting. His business is grueling and it pushes Kennedy away from him. But even after he refuses ...more

NOT YOUR TYPICAL MAFIA ROMANCE - Very close to 5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟+

This book hooked me from the very start, and I found it extremely addictive. I don't feel the need to describe this exciting story, as the blurb is quite sufficient and I wouldn't want to give anything away with spoilers.

Yes, this is in the mafia/underworld/mob genre, but this one does not romanticize the lifestyle as many other mafia romance novels do. Although there is romance, love, and plenty of heat between Kennedy and Tristan in t

Overall: 2.2/5
Great story, but inconsistent style and too many errors. I'm aware this is an ARC, but still. I believe a book so close to publishing date should be way more polished than this.

Cover: 4/5
This cover was what first drew me to want to read this, as any good cover should. To the point that seeing the page count did not deter me. I'm not giving it five stars because though it was that interesting, it didn't quite drop my jaw, so to speak.

I have to admit this book was quite different than what I normally read. I had a difficult time in real spots at the desire to continue on, but then a page or so would have me deciding to stick with it. I understand that the story revolves around a mob family in Italy and the consequences of double crossing another family. Trust in and Kennedy come from polar opposite families and their relationship is far on typical. Regard,less of a couple rough spots for me, I am glad I stuck with it to the e ...more

I'm going to be totally honest I went back and forth with this review and how I was going to word it just like I went back and forth with the book. I wanted to love it I did because its mafia and I absolutely love the mafia world and getting sucked into that life and not coming up for air however, I didn't love it. At times I found myself just scanning the book not really reading it and other times I just didn't click well with me. Like I said I wanted to love it but I just couldn't get into it. ...more

This book really didn't do it for me. I read all these gushing reviews but somehow I never could get into it. The pacing was uneven; it was a long book that seemed to drag in spots and then seemed to be racing. The romance seemed superficial and Tristan came across as remote and detached. Kennedy just wasn't real to me. The mafia aspect of the story was about what I expected but the ending certainly wasn't. Not a bad effort but I think it needs a good bit of additional editing.

This book was a slow burn and I couldnt decide if i loved it or if i wanted it to end. There is just so much to talk about, I dont know where to start. I dont usually read books that have infidelity and the fact that Tristen was hot one min and cold the other and then Kennedy was always frustrated with her lack of knowledge into the family business, I could feel her frustration but also felt like she should be a proper mob wife and not question everything. Overall I enjoyed this book but its pre ...more
