4 FILTHY La Cosa Nostra Stars
It was my first Bethany-Kris read and it was loads of fun! I love getting down and dirty with the mob! And Lucian Marcello was all that and more!
“Being an Italian born Cosa Nostra family was everything when it came to living life as a Marcello. Family. Honor.
God. La famiglia. Onore. Dio.
The Marcellos from Antony, the Boss, to his three sons, Lucian, Dante and Giovanni – “They didn’t need to spill a drop of blood to make a point. Magnetic. Intelligent. Bold.” Lucian Marcello is the eldest of the three and also adopted. The son of the Don's deceased best friend.
Lucian is cold and ruthless but also has a tenderness that we only see when he's with Jordyn Reese. Jordyn's born to a young, loose woman whose ambition in life is to have a good time. Jordyn's mother ODs when she's thirteen and she's taken in by the MC, the Sons of Hell.
When Lucian and Jordyn cross paths, it's combustible. These two don't understand it but can't deny it either. So their story begins as they navigate the threats and danger within both their lives while trying to explore and discover their attraction and affection for each other. While Lucian gives Jordyn safety, his protection and love. Jordyn helps Lucian wrestle with his childhood demons and also find peace and love.
“The kiss is to love what lightning is to thunder…that kind of love is the colpo di fulmine – the thunderbolt.”
“Again,” he demanded, grinding harder into her sex, his fingers grabbing tightly to her hips. “My name in your mouth just like that, sweetheart. Like you adore and love me, only me. Like I’m all you need and want.”
Jordyn whimpered low, “You are.”
This was a fast read filled with action, murder, hot sex and a really sweet and refreshing love story. While Jordyn had her moments (okay, only 2) where I seriously questioned her thinking, she and Lucian were mature and their relationship development was real with no over the top drama.
