SYNOPSIS

They didn’t come from the same world … 
 
Born rich to a family of mafia royalty, Lucia Marcello was already destined to succeed. She wanted for absolutely nothing, until she met him. 
 
Born poor to parents who never cared, Renzo Zulla was already destined to fail. He has struggled for absolutely everything, but she’ll prove to be his biggest fight yet. 
 
She’s high society from the upscale suburbs. 
He’s a drug dealer from New York’s slums. 
 
They just weren’t meant to be … until they were. 
 
What would it take to change a life—an entire perspective? All the things you thought you knew and wanted? 
 
For them, it took thirty-six days. 
And the privilege of meeting each other. 
 
They shouldn’t be. 
They don’t fit. 
Love doesn’t care. 
 
Note: Privilege is book one in a three-book trilogy following the same couple.
 
 
 
 
Let's start off by saying I am really loving this series and the more books I read from this author the more I fall in love with her works.
 
Wow ! We love  romance reads like this one.The forbidden romance theme where everyone connected to you tries to keep you apart we have a mafia princess and a boy from the hood who is a dealer who works the streets pedaling drugs just to keep food on the table.How more apart could there worlds be?
 
For both Lucia and Renzo is was instant attraction from their onset of meeting one another.Common sense played havoc with Renzo's emotions to stay far and wide away from Lucia but, his heart says something different entirely.For this couple it is all about what the heart wants what it wants is Lucia and vice versa but,there are going to be tons of obstacles going forward and a major one of those is who her family is.
 
In this story I saw from the onset of the story exactly why Lucia was drawn to Renzo and she saw beneath his circumstances and got to know the man within and in her mind he was no different than the men of her family other than geography and wealth .
 
I will say as much as I loved this story Lucia did piss me off a little bit as I thought she should have been a little more understanding when it came to her families concern for her considering her life did a total 180 after taking up with Renzo.
 
I got a little bit sick and tired of her constantly throwing out that she was 18 now and an adult she could do what she wants but, acted at first anything but.
 
For me I think that throughout this entire story Lucia forgot who exactly who she really was (meaning a mafia princess) and what that truly meant and that she would never be a commoner not matter how she might want have wished it. Her entire  family members were a extremely dangerous bunch a crime family to boot but,and that enemies come with that kind of prestige in the underworld that her family ruled.Lucia never once considered those tiny little details going forward or about her own safety.Never once did her father or brother forget and there laid one of the biggest obstacles and problems going forward with Lucia's new found freedom. She had a family who loved her and gave her every advantage yet time and time again acted selfishly yet , she was also giving and kind and truly felt the pain and sadness for the plight of others that were less fortunate then herself.
 
Renzo we found to be sexy,caring,loving,determined, some really big brass balls, bad*ss in his own right,creative,intelligent, a planner,down right dangerous if crossed,sneaky and sly,possessive,protective of all those he loved but, what we loved about him most of all of the self sacrifices he made on a daily basis for his family while all the time doing a job he hated but, did it to provide for his family.
 
I have to say that this was a story that kept you glued to the pages the entire time because Renzo kept surprising us at every turn at how far and the lengths he was willing to go to keep Lucia in his life and his family safe .
 
"Cheeky little devil!"
 
We loved the drama and the plot as well as getting to know a new cast of amazing  character's for us to love as well as fall in love with.Lucian was another favorite of mine..... 
 
 
Renzo was my favorite character hands down ."I loved him from the onset of the story!"  and I have to say that I was a little bit in love with him myself.We loved everything about him the good and the bad and the ugly.
 
We loved Renzo's relationship with his brother and sister as also Lucia and how protective he was of them possessive of them and loved them well.Because of all of these things this is just some of a few reasons that made Lucia fall in love with him and fall hard.
 
We can't wait for the next installment to come out and we highly recommend checking out this author mafia books because everything I have read so far we have absolutely loved and they have been awesome reads.
 
We are loving these mafia romance books more and more.

SYNOPSIS


Lucia Marcello is the good girl—or she used to be. The youngest mafia principessa of her family, she's not the one who falls for the man from the wrong side of the tracks, and she certainly shouldn't have run across the country with him.
 
She'll leave everything behind for him …
 
Renzo Zulla is the bad guy—society and life labeled him that way. The only person left to take care of his siblings, he couldn't afford the distraction of falling in love with a rich girl far beyond his league, and he definitely shouldn't have her riding shotgun as he runs for his life.
 
He doesn't want her anywhere else …
 
Love keeps them together. 
Fear keeps them running. 
Chaos follows them everywhere they go.
 
How long can they keep moving before someone finally catches up?
 
The cost of love is always high. 
Never harbor it blindly.
 
Note: Harbor is book two in a three-book trilogy following the same couple.

Let's start off by saying I am really loving this series and the more books I read from this author the more I fall in love with her works.
 
This story was a continuation of Renzo and Lucia's story from book one.Talk about how opposites attract and this couple would be the perfect example as they are so different from each other in every way other than the ability to love whole heartedly.
 
I have to say that this was a story that kept you glued to the pages the entire time as things were constantly changing and the danger kept getting even more real but, this time around even more was on the line .
 
Renzo was my favorite character hands down ."I loved him from the onset of the story!"  and I have to say that I was a little bit in love with him myself.We loved everything about him the good and the bad.
 
Renzo we found to be sexy,caring,loving,determined, some really big brass balls, bad*ss in his own right,creative,intelligent, a planner,down right dangerous if crossed,sneaky and sly,possessive,protective of all those he loved but, what we loved about him most of all of the self sacrifices he made on a daily basis for his family while all the time doing a job he hated but, did it to provide for his family.
 
We loved Renzo's relationship with his brother and sister as also Lucia and how protective he was of them possessive of them and loved them well.Because of all of these things this is just some of a few reasons that made Lucia fall in love with him and fall hard.
 
Lucia was so much more than just her upbringing.I have to say that she surprised more and more as the story progressed and we saw this protective tigress just blossom and the lengths she went to also protect those she had come to love was astounding and so out of character for her. Lucia was the poster girl of a fierce warrior women. LOL We say that because she surprised us at every turn with her deeds alone and even though its no secret who her family is and how dangerous they are I think she proved this time around that she is more like her family members she could ever imagine.
 
For us the story rocked! The story had tons of romance and some really hot erotica love scenes,had constant drama, a ton of surprises as well as tons of twists and turns along the way and the story that was a little bit intense.I loved the lengths this couple was willing to go to be together and the sacrifices both of them were making to forge and life together.We also loved the character's in this series and we are so looking forward to going back and starting with Lucian's story and how it all began.
 
 
We can't wait for the next installment to come out and we highly recommend checking out this author mafia books because everything I have read so far we have absolutely loved and they have been awesome reads.
 
We are loving these mafia romance books more and more.

EXCERPT #3

 

“Are you almost done?” she asked.


“Almost. Diego just about finished?”


Lucia gave the boy a look, and found he was still working on his cheeseburger and had half of his fries left. “Almost, but not really.”


Renzo chuckled as he stood up, and came around the back of their SUV. He moved to the side of Lucia where he could bend down to the ground, put the license plate on, and still keep out of view with her mostly blocking what he was doing. Diego moved to the edge of the hatch, and watched his older brother with a curious eye.


“What are you doing, Ren?” Diego asked.


“Making us harder to find again, that’s all.”


“Oh, okay. Like Hide and Seek?”


Renzo glanced up, and smiled at his brother. “Sure, just like that.”


Seemingly satisfied with his brother’s answer, Diego scooted back inside the hatch and bit into his burger again while scribbling on the notepad with a red pencil crayon. He wasn’t paying Lucia and Renzo any attention, now. Renzo quickly finished up his work of switching the license plates on the vehicles—well, he didn’t put their original stolen plates on the white car. Instead, he tossed it inside the SUV to keep it before coming to stand next to Lucia. That left the white car with no plate but it was unlikely the owner would even notice that until they got off their shift later in the day.


“You sure you don’t want some food?” he asked.


She shook her head. “Not really.”


“We’re not going to stop for a while.”


“I’ll be fine.”


“If you’re—”


“Why did you switch the license plates again?” she asked. “No, sorry … took the license plate from that car and also kept ours.”


“I told Diego why.”


Turning her back to the hatch, Renzo did the same. Lucia lowered her voice as she replied, “Yeah, but maybe I don’t believe that’s why.”


Renzo snuck an arm around her waist, pulled her in close, and pressed a kiss to the top of her head. Murmuring, he admitted, “You’re right. I was thinking it’d be better to switch the plates back to the old one after we cross over into Nebraska.”


“But why—”


“We need more money.”


Lucia stilled. “We have money, Ren.”


“Not enough. Not enough for Vegas.” His hand tightened on her waist, squeezing just hard enough to take her breath away but ground her all over again. Without a word, he tugged her around the SUV where Diego couldn’t see them. Renzo backed Lucia against the SUV, and came close enough that his nose brushed against hers. All she could see was him clouding her vision, and for a moment, the rest of the world just disappeared. She sucked in a quick breath a second before his lips grazed hers. “Vegas is the most expensive place to live—and we have to stay underground, so that’s going to make it worse. We’re gonna need shit, Lucia.”


“I know.”


“Fake IDs. A place to stay. That’s going to eat up a lot of cash all at once right there.”


Would it?


Lucia didn’t know.


“We need to eat, to sleep, to get dressed every day … more. Okay? So let me take care of it. Let me handle getting cash to do something with. You just keep Diego in the car, and keep him down out of sight until I get out of here. Then, we’re on the road again. No looking back, baby, right?”


“No looking back.”


He let her go then only to pull the gun he’d kept tucked in his waistband out of his jeans. Pulling out the mag, he checked the gun, and then quickly tucked it away once more. Passing the fast food restaurant a look, his attention came back to her in a blink. “I’ll hit somewhere as we head out of Nebraska.”


She knew, then.


He was going to rob a place.

Black Privilege: Opportunity Comes to Those Who Create It - Charlamagne Tha God,Charlamagne Tha God,Simon & Schuster Audio

 

I Picked Up This Book Because: It was a gift


Charlamagne is a radio personality I know of but I wouldn’t say I’m a fan. I’ve listened to many donkey of the day clips and a few other interviews with the Breakfast Club but morning radio isn’t really my thing. I spend much more time listening to audiobooks which is how I read this.

Charlamagne gives tons of great advice in this book. He also backs it up with examples from his own life. I found chapters 6 and 10 to be particularly inspiring.
