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.
❤️ My Review
Swoon! Renzo + Lucia 4ever! This might be my favorite Marcello story so far. Bethany-Kris, this story rocks! Lucian’s youngest is all grown up and when the calendar hits her eighteenth birthday the shit hits the fan. Lucia just like her father…stubborn. You would think she would be a delicate spoiled Mafia princess but no. She’s tough and fierce and fights for what she thinks is right in her world of privilege. Lucia is a small, beautiful package with lots of love and emotion. Her love is directed at Renzo and I’m right there with her. I love, love, love him! He’s such a protector and a sexy badass and definitely on my list of book boyfriends. There was not a second in this story that I did not love him and care about his life. The author did a terrific job of building a heart-throbbing connection between these lovers. I didn’t even mind the sort of cliffhanger ending because I get more of these two fabulous characters and their love story. I haven’t even touch on the Mafia aspect of the story with all the usual brutality surrounding the Marcellos. Just fantastic! A mainstay for this series are the terrific characters, both good and bad, and you get them in full force in this story. I can’t wait for the continuation.
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.
