BLOG TOUR: Privilege by Bethany-Kris


Renzo + Lucia , #1
Publication Date: January 7, 2019
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime, Erotic Romance



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.


Bethany-Kris has yet to ever disappoint me! Seriously every time I read a book with her name on the cover I am incredibly pleased and just plain tickled that Mrs. Kris continues to give us these amazing stories with characters that you ache for! These two main characters, Renzo and Lucia could not be any more different. Yet, no girl could walk away from Renzo’s sweet soul, his heart… he just stole my heart from every other Kris man. Yes, I’m telling you all that Renzo has stole my heart from all the other men Bethany-Kris has written about and that is hard when Cross is in that category… but I just can’t get over the heart Renzo has. Not only does he move heaven and earth for his woman but he loves his family and just works so hard for them. I just can’t stand up against that, my heart has no control when I see a man love his family. 

Anyway, Privilege starts off with a bang! I’m just thrilled that this is the start of another trilogy. I do love how Mrs. Kris switches up what we normally get… in Privilege we have a mafia princess who has never had to work for a thing and a man who’s starting at the bottom and (financially) has nothing. I was really thankful that Lucia wasn’t some spoiled entitled brat but she was really caring and a loving person. Mrs. Kris outdid herself here… I can normally guess how the story is going to go but I didn’t see how this one was going, however, we are at the start of three books. The drama was intense! Really it can’t be anything but when you have a lowly foot soldier and a mafia princess falling for each other. They were so passionate.

I always recommend Bethany-Kris books when someone is looking for organized crime stories. You can’t go wrong when you’re looking for illegal activities that skirt that rules, passion that ignites your reader and characters that you’ll either love or love to hate! Mrs. Kris’s writing is purely perfection. She’s creative and descriptive. These are always compulsive reads. I can tell you that I felt quite confused when seeing the way Lucian forbade her to be with Renzo. I had always loved Lucian in the previous books. However, Kris gives us well-rounded people… even bosses are fathers! I seriously can’t wait for more of this drama and love!

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.
