Chris (Guzzi Legacy 3)
Chris, Chris, Chris! Bethany-Kris has made me fall in love with another one of her book boys. Chris has a heart of gold and really reminds me of his dad Gian.
Valeria and Chris has great chemistry. I loved their characters and Maria was just the cherry on the sundae. She was so fricken cute. Chris has stolen a piece of my heart. Everything in this book unfolds perfectly. It wasn’t rushed and everything falls in to place and leaves BK’s readers feeling content and good.
I love Bethany-Kris’ writing. Her books are always in a world of their own. The importance of family in her World’s is what makes her one of my favourite authors. Throw in some action and love and it makes for such an enjoyable reading experience. I couldn’t put this book down. Those Guzzi Men are to die for!
“Take care of my niece,” Abril replied, “and stay away so he can’t hurt you anymore, Val.”
Or she would try.
It was all going to fall on a hope, a wish, and a damn prayer, though. She didn’t doubt for a second that once Jorge knew she had run away, he would come after her. He would never stop tracking her down.
She was his trophy.
He won her.
She belonged to him, and only he decided when to toss her away like trash on the sidewalk. But that was okay because Valeria would keep running. As long as it meant her baby was safe, and Jorge couldn’t hurt their child, then she would keep going.
To the ends of the fucking earth.
Abril checked the watch on her wrist, and said, “You only have three hours, now. Do you remember the spot where you’re supposed to meet Cruz? He has the fake papers you’ll need with him, and he can get you across the border, but only for a small window of time, Val.”
“Can I even trust him?”
“Papá killed his father—he’d do anything that went against my father or brothers. It’s only because he was my … it doesn’t matter,” Abril whispered, shaking her head. In a flash, the emotion she had showed speaking about her lost love, something she guarded even from Valeria unless she slipped up like now, to cold in a blink. “He will be at the meeting place, but he will not wait past the time we agreed. You need to go, so go.”
“Right,” Valeria said. “Now or never.”
Those words—good luck—echoed in Valeria’s mind long after she had taken Maple from the stables and headed out toward the cliffs to the east of the compound. Two hours later, when her back ached, her legs felt like pins and needles had settled into her bloodstream, and her stomach cramped, she still thought about those words.
Maple never slowed.
The darkness turned black.
Valeria thought about those words.
Luck hadn’t found her yet.
And while she could taste the promise of freedom with every gallop of Maple’s hooves against the ground, it still felt temporary.
How long could she run?
How long would it be before Jorge found her?

A made man versus the cartel …
The job was simple—a contract from a powerful crime family to retrieve Valeria Lòpez. A woman believed to have been forcibly taken by one of the major cartels in Mexico. Easy enough, right?
Christopher Guzzi thought so, but the details made it difficult. He didn’t expect to trick his way into the path of the cartel leader only to develop feelings for the woman he was meant to recover. That leader’s wife. Every step he takes is risky, and one wrong move could leave them both dead. Too bad that’s not enough to keep him away from Valeria as he tries to find a way to free her.
Hope is a dangerous thing.
Love is even worse.
Here, everybody plays dirty.
No one can be trusted.
So, how do they get out alive?
Note: Chris is book 3 in The Guzzi Legacy. It is a standalone novel.
