Product Description

Cara Rossi’s life has been a mess ever since her identical twin was killed. She blames the mafia, its ways, and the people within the caustic culture for a painful reality that turned her world on its side. In an attempt to momentarily pause her misery, a night out puts her on a path with a man she shouldn’t get involved with simply because of his last name—Gian Guzzi.

He’s the kind of man that makes it hard to say no.

Gian Guzzi’s problems are piling up fast. A murdered grandfather, an unpredictable mafia, and a new boss that threatens both his family’s legacy and his life. As a Cosa Nostra underboss, Gian has a duty. First to la famiglia, and only then to himself. In the midst of the violent uncertainty that has become unrelenting in his days, Cara Rossi should only be a distraction for him to enjoy.

She’s a happiness that he was never allowed to choose before.

His lies.
This life.
Their love.

It all unravels eventually.

Just amazing!

I loved the fact that i was taken off guard during this book ...secrets and comments made within the (mafia circle) all came unhidden towards the end which i did not see coming. I had 100 thoughts yet i did not see this ending!!!! and i can't wait for the second novel to be released!

Bloody brilliant read always Bethany Kris hits all 5 stars!!!

Gian Guzzi the mobster (Boss) meets Cara Rossi ( Sister of Tommy - Chicago war series). Cara is going through a very difficult time in her life after the death of her identical twin sister. Gian helps her feel again for the first time in a long time only sometimes freedom doesn't last forever!

Unraveled (Guzzi Duet #1) by Bethany-Kris
4 stars!!!

“He touched. He demanded. Her body reacted.”

Bethany-Kris is one of my favourite Mafia authors and once again she has delivered with Unraveled. Unraveled is the first book of a duet and to say that I am itching for the next one would be a severe understatement. It seems Bethany-Kris certainly knows how to end a book and keep the reader well and truly on the hook. We should only have a couple of months to wait, but still, I desperately need the next one. For me this was a quick read, the pages turned at the rate of knots, loved the action both in and out of the sheets, the character connection was on point and the chemistry between these two characters was seriously hot!! This one ticked all my mafia boxes.

Gian Guzzi is a made man, the underboss, a man being groomed for the position by his grandfather. When the time comes though for Gian to take the reins it seems the older generation of the Canadian famiglia of the Cosa Nostra have other ideas. This is where all the Mafia action takes, a battle of wills, a battle of minds, a battle of tactics and a battle of loyalty. Everything that makes Mafia books the crack they are.

“What matters the most is that someone started a war, and I plan on finishing it.”

Gian was everything a made man should be, he was an enigma, he was professional, but in his personal life he was totally different. Gian was a closet romantic, a filthy talker, bilingual with that perfect blend of Italian and French, a sharp dresser, inherently handsome and dominant and quite frankly Cara Rossi never stood a chance.

“Some people do say the Guzzi blood is made of nothing but gold, luck, and dirt.”

Cara Rossi was a Chicago mafia princess that had stayed away from the city and the family life. Cara and her twin had settled in Canada, far, far away from everything that Cara hates. Cara is drowning in grief and has been a recluse for months until one of her friends holds an intervention. Cara and Gian’s paths cross and herein begins one seriously hot, intense and all-consuming romance. What started out as a one night stand soon morphs into more but Gian is everything that Cara doesn’t want…until she does.

“Be where, or with whom, or do whatever you need to do to be happy. Take that risk—it’s worth it. Because this life is fleeting, and tomorrow might be the last time you smile, so it’s better to spend today happy.”

With any Mafia romance, you always know that these men play their cards extremely close to their chests and Gian is no different. Gian knows that Cara is extremely skittish and while he knows that she knows who he is, he doesn’t want to entrench her into his “life” until she is ready. Cara is kept on the periphery at her own choice, but the longer their relationship continues the more she is tempted to take the next step. Gian is so protective of her, incredibly infatuated and hopelessly in love which to be honest is probably some of the reasons for certain omissions. A relationship built on secrets is never healthy and it is here that Bethany-Kris certainly ramps up this story.

“Don’t you think it’s a little sad that you love someone who is just waiting for the other shoe to drop?”
“I think it’s sad that the woman I love feels like she has to wait on that at all.”

Yes, I will admit tears were shed, quite a few in fact and I cannot wait to see how Bethany-Kris gets Gian out of this particular sticky situation. Unraveled though was the perfect balance of Mafia plot and an all-consuming, where both parts were just as addictive as the other. The chemistry and the between the sheets scenes were seriously off the charts and Bethany-Kris certainly brought these characters to life. I think August should be when book two is released, I know that I for one will be eagerly anticipating that one. I seriously need it now!!

** spoiler alert **

There is great chemistry between Cara and Gian. Her twin died recently and she is a mess and he helps pull her out of the black hole she was in. I was not expecting the twist at the end about his secret. He is married! Cara tells him off and leaves him. Sounds like he was lied to and played into getting married. I hate a cliffhanger though and the next book isn't until August I think so that stinks. I should have waited to read this until the other book was almost out. This author writes great stories about the mafia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read, all I expected and more! 5 June 2017
By Lily - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Unraveled by Bethany-Kris is the story of how Gian Guzzi, the smooth talking and well attired mobster meets Cara Rossi, the strong-willed redhead who wants nothing to do with ‘this life of theirs’!

They share one night, too many connections and unforgettable passion. Cara is on to Gian’s charming ways and does her best to maintain a healthy distance. He’s a patient man and sees her barriers as the building blocks for a lot more than one night.

Maintaining indifference to defining whatever it is they are building becomes increasingly difficult as family matters play out around them. Gian’s natural charm works its magic on Cara. Having spent the last months grieving the loss of a loved one, Gian presents an opportunity to momentarily escape and forget, if only for a night.

Gian is a character who has the ability to knock all your other anti-heroes off their pedestals. What would be considered OTT traits in other men, were Gian’s attributes. The man speaks French, Italian, and English (thankfully for Cara and me as the reader!), he’s wealthy, dangerous and his talents are endless.

Gian’s cockiness is far from obnoxious. Normally I would have scrunched up my face from the smell of desperation but his style is of confidence, acceptance and genuine acknowledgement of who he is and how he operates. I for one considered myself charmed! Yes, short of providing stats, this man is perfection personified, except for a few niggly details.

The power he commands among his men, and the way this was conveyed through the dialog throughout the story, exemplified the talented storytelling of Bethany-Kris. His imperfections were nullified by his clarity of the big picture. He has a knack of making the impossible, possible. His charm and confidence bridging the gap of doubt hovering between the situation and solution.

There is one stand out secondary character I am compelled to acknowledge, Chris. This man has my nomination for employee of the month award. He defines loyalty, respect, redefining patience at the same time. I enjoyed catching up with familiar characters from Bethany-Kris previous series that are strategically placed in this story. If you haven’t read their books, it won’t impact the enjoyment of this duet. Reading the Filthy Marcello collection first though, will avoid encountering spoilers relating to the Rossi family.

This is a story of upholding a legacy by putting the family above personal desires and the heartbreak it can cause. It deals with loss, love and detachment with all the intensity you would expect in a mafia romance.

Unraveled it the first part of the Guzzi Duet and naturally, the story doesn’t end with Unraveled. Needless to say, I can’t wait to read Entangled and see what’s next in store for Gian and Cara!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing beginning to new series 5 June 2017
By Lin-( Nerdy Bookworm) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
>>>>I voluntarily received an Advanced Review Copy of this book<<<<
This is definitely a start to an exciting new series combine with an impressive amount of deception, action, gripping suspense and a roller coaster ride of emotional turmoil. It was highly excruciating, captivating, nail biting and explosive.

The book kept me hooked from start to finish while I'm anxiously waiting for the next one. The connection Cara and Gian had was similar to a stick of TNT ready to explode and when it finally happened BOOM!

Cara Rossi is still grieving her twin sister death with the withdrawal symptoms of non-existence. Her life was totally turned upside down on its axis because of her sister death. Lea and Cara Rossi was identical twins but also princesses of the Outfit based in Chicago. She was persuaded to go out by one of Lea's friend (Bambi Emma) to a new nightclub "Danza". Danza owner is Gian Guzzi, underboss to Corrado Guzzi and the attraction was instantaneously on point. Can Cara overcome her grief? Will she find out the secrets from the grave? Who is the true Gian Guzzi?

Gian Guzzi is very handsome, seductive and well trained by his grandfather (Corrado Guzzi) in the daily activities within the Cosa Nostra businesses. He was a made man, the underboss, born, given special privileges because of his name along. His love for his grandfather was the sacrifice of his other siblings to be omitted from the business. Gian arrived at his new club with the intention to make his rounds then leave but someone caught his attention. The beautiful curly red headed young lady sitting in the VIP section now he is a goner. Will Gian reveal his secrets? Can he see Cara without losing his heart? Who can Gian trust within the family business?

This twisted story is a tale that was written with many questions and secrets to be revealed about the mysterious Canadian mafia family with this being the first one in the series. Ms. Kris has a devious mastermind, with her magnificent writing style that I am truly addicted to.
