4.5 FILTHY MARCELLO STARS

This was an amazing beginning/end to this series!!! Thank you Bethany Kris for giving us Antony's story. I read Filthy Marcellos: Lucian, Filthy Marcellos: Giovanni and Filthy Marcellos: Dante first and then this one. I think reading this book first or last works however, for me, finishing with this book was really sweet because it had me reliving some fantastic and tender moments from each of the Principes' stories.

This is Antony Marcello's story and how he comes into La Cosa Nostra, "this thing of ours" and eventually becomes the Don.

This is also very much Cecelia's story. She is Antony's better half, his one and only. I loved Cecelia in her sons' stories but adored her in this book! I knew she was formidable but seeing her strength, stubbornness and an unwavering love was fantastic!

Antony honours and is governed by la famiglia, driven to get his button and become a made man. His aspirations for the mafioso go no further although he does aspire to be all powerful in New York.



When Antony first meets Cecelia, it's sweet and funny and exciting because you know their relationship is going to be a helluva of a love story.

Antony and Cecelia together are hot, sexy and filthy!!



Watching their relationship grow and navigate the demands of La Cosa Nostra is endearing, trying and precious. Cecelia is a remarkable woman! It makes the stark contrast between Cecelia and her younger sister, Kate (the viper) all the more apparent. And for me, it made we want to give Kate what she so deserved.



Throughout this story, we also see the power, violence and the smarts of Antony Marcello. He's a man of few words but when he speaks, you know he means business.

This was a wonderful read. If the Mafia is your thing and you're into powerful men with strong, sexy women at their sides, you should read this series!


BR with My Sexy Maflut Sisters: Sasha, Shanny and Snow!!
