Alessio by Bethany-Kris Blog Tour and ARC Review


by Bethany-Kris
Guzzi Legacy Duet, #2
Publication Date: August 5, 2019
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance, MMF



The son of a prominent Cosa Nostra Don, Corrado Guzzi’s life should have been all mapped out. He would be what every other Guzzi man was, too—made, mafia. It’s their way. But when given another choice, the chance to be something more, he takes it. Even if it comes with strings.

It’s there that he might find where he belongs, and Alessio Sorrento. The man who could change his whole life.

This love thing? It should have been easy, but they made it hard. Nothing about a relationship like theirs is simple. Dictated by rules, weighed down with things left unsaid, and already hanging by a frayed thread.

This is what love looks like before, and after.
Before she came along.
And after she was there.

It takes one woman to change everything.

Ginevra Calabrese wasn’t ready for this—for them.

So, what happens now?


NOTE: Corrado (book one) and Alessio (book two) are a duet within The Guzzi Legacy series, and should be read in order. All other titles in the series are standalone. This is NOT a love triangle.





Bethany-Kris is a Canadian author, lover of much, and mother to four young sons, one cat, and two dogs. A small town in Eastern Canada where she was born and raised is where she has always called home. With her boys under her feet, snuggling cat, barking dogs, and a hubby calling over his shoulder, she is nearly always writing something … when she can find the time.

The much-awaited conclusion to Corrado, Ginevra, and Alessio’s story is here! These are three people that met under unusual circumstances and they find themselves staying for each other. I am not normally someone who will gush over an MMF romance, but can I just say that this author gets it? Bethany-Kris really did a good job in fleshing out these characters by making the readers understand their complexities.

I mean, for some, this might not be your cup of tea. I know some people may dive into this with preconceived biases about how common societal norms portray your usual romance. But what I loved about Alessio is that at the end of the day, you’ll just realize that this is a story about three souls who simply love each other. Love is love right?

Corrado, Ginny, and Alessio simply complete each other. Their dynamics might be unconventional to some and others might even insist that a “third party” should not be included in the mix. There’s no love triangle in their story because that’s just not how the way their love works. These three fill up each other’s needs and desires in ways that are not the same as other romance novels that you normally read from Bethany-Kris or other authors.

And that is exactly what I loved about this book. It shows her dynamic range as an author that she gives us something exciting to read about every time. I loved how the book showed the prejudices held by the organized crime world about these kinds of relationship and how these characters found a way to carve out their own world amidst those obstacles.

What can I say? Bethany-Kris has really woven an intricate world of organized crime that gets you so engrossed in the character’s lives and you’ll find yourself subtly nodding and smiling whenever other characters from her other books make a cameo appearance. I am in too deep in the world that she created and I am loving every minute of it! I cannot wait for the stories of the rest of the Guzzi boys. I am anxiously awaiting each month’s new release until the end of the year!

Rating: 5/5
