Review: Privilege (Renzo + Lucia Book 1) by Bethany-Kris

Review of Privilege (Renzo + Lucia Book 1) by Bethany-Kris

"That was the privilege of Lucia Marcello.
Simply because she had been born."

"That was the misfortune of Renzo Zulla.
Simply because he had been born."

So when this mafia principessa meets Renzo, one of the family's gofers, the instant connection they forged should never have been allowed to flourish. And yet it did. And another epic mafia love was born because Lucia Marcello was the youngest progeny of the Marcello family. THE Marcello family. "...her family might as well be royalty in the world of organized crime. Her father and uncles held three of the highest seats in the family. Even her brother was mixed up in it all."

Of course her family was against them, but, her father underestimated Lucia's will, her determination to live her life the way she wanted, WITH whom she wanted. Thank God she had her mother, Jordyn, because Jordyn insisted Lucian let her go be with Renzo, to "...make her own choices, and if those mean mistakes, then that's what it means. They are hers to make, not yours or ours."

So Lucia goes. Goes with Renzo, determined that they'll live their life as they see fit. But there's a huge complication in the form of one of his family members. Will the two get past it? If so, can they forge a new life together?

"'You go, I go... That's how it's going to be.' Until the day one of them died."

"Him and her. Until the end ... Ride or fuckin' die."

Of course this is only the beginning of their trilogy, so now I'm stuck waiting impatiently for the next part, Harbor, and I'm dying here! Lucia and Renzo may be young, but they're just as interesting and intense as her cousin Andino and his Haven (from Duty and Vow). Seriously, Bethany-Kris, I hope you're writing like a fiend, because I can hardly wait!

Even at thirty seven, with a challenging but rewarding career as a paramedic, Bella Gomez is treated as the baby of the family. It’s made her allergic to anyone meddling, so she chooses to keep mostly to herself. Unfortunately that doesn’t stop her family from inserting themselves in her life. Nor does it deter the one man she knows she shouldn’t get close to from showing up on her doorstep. Jasper Greene, an FBI agent with the La Plata County field office, doesn’t even know the meaning of family. His team is his family, which is why—when his boss asks him to keep an eye on his baby sister—Jasper readily complies. Even when the sister in question is a spectacularly developed princess with plenty of attitude. With a shooter on the loose and corruption running rampant, Bella is a magnet for trouble, and Jasper finds hims…

Review: Winter Interlude: An American Revolutionary Novelette (American Revolutionary Tales 2) by Regina Kammer

Review of Winter Interlude: An American Revolutionary Novelette by Regina Kammer

Captain Samuel Taylor and Lieutenant Patrick Hamilton recall their first steamy encounter, which was a MFM threesome in a brothel. It morphed into more and now the two are contemplating their futures with the women they love, and their futures with each other. If you think times are hard for the LGBT community now, think of how hard they were during the American Revolution.

Winter Interlude is well developed, which is surprising given its short length. I am so interested in knowing what is to become of Samuel and Patrick's forbidden relationship. Do they stay together? Or do they go their separate ways, and live out their lives with their women? Now that they've admitted their love for each other, how impossible would it be for them to be without each other? I have to know, now!

If you like MM fiction and/or historical fiction, I highly recommend you give Winter Interlude a read. It's steamy, s…
