SYNOPSIS


How much is too much?


Five years—that was the deal. Renzo Zulla gave up five years of his life to repay a debt to an organization that only wanted to break him before they could make him.

Their way, their rules. He doesn’t move without their okay, even if his latest job puts him right in front of her. But the five years are almost up, and he knows exactly where he’s going first.


Love doesn’t follow rules …


Heartbroken and alone—that’s how she survives. Lucia Marcello is alive, but a part of her still feels dead without him. She’s spent far too much time running away from her past and the pain she constantly holds tight because it’s easier than hating the people who caused it. But life has a way of bringing you back when your heart never will.


Love doesn’t fade …


But time means nothing, and forever might be only an illusion for them. Because where fate doesn’t step in, reality does. If hate is a game you play with your heart, and contempt is the game you play with your mind … where does that leave love?
Vendettas don’t care about love.


It’s in God’s hands now.


Note: CONTEMPT is the final book in a three-book Trilogy following the same couple.

EXCERPT #2

 

“Scores,” came the voice again through the speakers to drag Renzo from his thoughts once more. “Ten out of ten—hand to hand combat; excellent. Seven out of ten—hacking; moderate. Ten out of ten—weapons, in both practical and applied; excellent.”


The distorted voice continued on describing skills that had been, for the most part, either beaten into Renzo during his first year at The League, or ones he already had that were picked up on and honed. Everything from his understanding of vehicles, to his ability to survive.


The scores went on for at least ten minutes before the man moved onto something else. They’d already described the tattoos on his body that the people behind the mirrored glass might not be able to see fully—he’d been told once not to mark up his skin when he was first allowed a bit of freedom from The League. He went ahead and did it anyway.


Suffered for it, too.


It was worth it.


Renzo kept going until he had one whole fucking sleeve of tattoos. Memories he didn’t want to forget because it seemed like with every passing day that he spent here, he forgot something else. Like the way his little brother sounded first thing in the morning when he got his favorite breakfast. He started to forget the color of his sister’s hair, too. Or how Lucia’s eyes glinted with her slyness when she knew something he didn’t.
He was so controlled—constantly. No phones, no access to the outside without someone else right there. A chip implanted into his arm to keep track of him nonstop. Which lead him to believe, yes, they knew every single time he went in for more ink, and while they could have stopped him, they didn’t.


They never stepped in.


They punished him after.


Worth it.


He was here.


This was his life for the next … well, four years now.


That was the fucking deal.


Right?


He wasn’t gonna forget while he was here.


Simple as that.


“Excelled specialty for The League—explosives,” the distorted voice drawled on, bringing Renzo back to the present. “Bidding will begin at one-point-three million.”


Instantly, those red lights over the windows started flickering.
Renzo blinked.


Bids, he realized.


It had begun.


His life was now up for sale.

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

 

HARBOR
by Bethany-Kris
Renzo + Lucia, #2
Publication Date: February 4, 2019
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance


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.

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.

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.

PLAYLIST FOR THE DEAD by Michelle Falkoff
Playlist for the Dead - Michelle Falkoff
Not a book to be read quickly.  This must be savored.  A 16-year old commits suicide and leaves his friend a playlist to discover why he committed suicide.  Listen to the song at the beginning of each chapter and see how it fits.  Listen more than once.  Make sure you know what is being sung.  I only knew one of the songs but found a lot of them I enjoyed.  Listening caused me to read slower but I wanted to be able to put the clues together to figure it out as Sam (the friend) was figuring it out.
 
I liked Sam.  Started out hating some of the characters while loving others I met throughout the story.  The ending changed my feelings towards some of the characters but not all.  Some are just jerks and you can't change that.  Some seemed cool but had feet of clay.  Others were hurt just as much by the popular kids but managed not to lose their integrity. 
 
Read this book for the experience.
