Chris, Chris, Chris..... What can be said about Chris that’ll help you get the full picture. I’ll start with this... He’s a Guzzi boy through and through. This means even if you think you know what to expect, be prepared for this book to exceed those expectations. After all, It’s not every day that you come across a kind hearted Assassin. We originally met Val back in Andino’s book. She was friends and roommates with Haven. We learned back then that she was running from someone pretty scary with her daughter. Well in this book we learn that that someone is her ruthless, unpredictable, abusive husband. Chris is sent in to scope out the place and find out if Val is being held against her will. He’s almost instantly smitten by her and they both take us readers on a action packed ride trying to get her and her daughter free. This book is action packed from page one. I was instantly captivated. Be prepared for the anxiety that comes along with watching Chris and Val fall in love while trying not to get caught. There’s a few close calls that will have your heart ready to jump out of your chest. I absolutely loved this book. Chris is holding the crown as my favorite Guzzi boy right now. It never ceases to amaze me how the author can write so many characters from the same world, and each one be so uniquely different.

I love, love, love this series. The impressive Cosa Nostra Guzzi men are heart-throbbingly swoon worthy with their fierceness and ability to love their women with respect and sexiness. Papa Gian taught his sons well! After Corrado's fabulous duet I was looking forward to his twin's story. That duet featured Chris quite a bit and I really had a good appreciation of who he is and his differences from his twin. His story is a stand alone but without reading Corrado's stories you will miss out on some of his wonderful qualities. I hate to say it but this story left me wanting more of the trademark mafia brutality and violence. I thought we would at least get a few brutal glimpses of what really happened between Valeria and her husband or Chris having to pull out his deadly League talents. This story focused on the romance between Chris and Valeria without very much suspense or the enormously intense situations that are usually found in this author's mafia stories. Oh, don't get me wrong there were some tense moments where I thought Chris was in major peril along with the long suffering but resilient and lovely Valeria. The evil Jorge was ever present as a threat to their safety and I so loved his comeuppance. Chris was fabulous in his treatment of Valeria and her adorable daughter, Maria. I loved that little girl! I thought at first that our lovers were moving a little fast but as the story developed their connection was evident and their chemistry hot. Chris showed Valeria what real, sexy love was in that special Guzzi way. Jorge's sister was a terrific character. I hope we see her in future stories. The ending was spectacular and I loved that Corrado and Les were involved when things got real. And of course it's always good to see the Marcellos and their interesting relationship with the Guzzi men. The epilogue was wonderful and wrapped up the story in a satisfying way. As always the writing is outstanding and the characters are what I've come to expect from one of my favorite author. I can't wait for the next Guzzi Legacy installment! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC.

I'm completely smitten with the many sides of Chris. He is such a lovely and pure man. On the other side, he's fierce and loyal to a fault. He's totally vicious when you mess with those he loves. He's out for blood. I loved his conviction for everything he does. He believes in himself and in what he does. Valeria is a surprisingly strong woman. She has always done what she needs to do to survive. Now with her daughter, she does everything for her daughter, Maria, even if it means staying with a cruel and ruthless boss of the Mexican cartel, Jorge, who happens to be her husband. I don't want to go more into the actual storyline. This book was one of my favorites by Bethany-Kris and that's saying something since I pretty much always love her books. There was something about this insta-love story. Perhaps it was seeing Chris fall for both Val and Maria. My heart was all in once I knew he loved them both. I just have no resistance for a man brought to his knees by a woman and child that he loves. However, Chris was about more than love and romance. I was lost in the suspense and the NON-STOP action, it's a complete page turner... I found myself captivated by the action and fear of possibly outcomes. Don't get me wrong I loved the intense and serious chemistry between Chris and Val but the action... it just made this book unputdownable!

After sitting out the first two books of this spin-off series, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on book 3, Chris. If you need a quick, obvious reason why, just take a gander at that gorgeous, intriguing cover. My fellow mafia romance book loving friends, he was well worth the wait. This alpha but sweet side to him leading mafia man was the perfect match up to beautiful, resilient Valeria, the damsel in distress heroine. Still tied unwillingly to a Cartel mob abusive husband, she’s lived day to day doing whatever it takes to keep her daughter safe from her own daddy. Having run away and forcibly hauled back only made her life with this monster even worse. Chris quickly gave new meaning to the term hero. My, oh my, did he ever. Cool, calm, calculating, yet lethal with an eye and heart set on vengeance and justice, he becomes a force to be reckoned with. What started out as a job becomes so much more. Goodness, I loved the Marcellos cameos and their tie to this stand-alone, as well. Make no mistake, the Marcellos know how to make things happen. To find out for yourself what I mean, backtrack and read the absolutely fabulously Filthy Marcellos series. I also highly enjoyed the revelation about Chris’ sibling, who ultimately played a pivotal role, too. Well, that’s enough, folks, because I definitely don’t want to give anything away. Just know I highly enjoyed this book and look forward to more books in this series!
