Bethany-Kris – Effortless | ARC Review


Title: Effortless: A Legacy Novel
Author: Bethany-Kris
Genre: Romance, mafia
Publication Date: January 15, 2018

Camilla Donati doesn’t do relationships—it’s just not her thing. She wants a fun time, not a long time. She might be exactly what Tommaso Rossi needs to make his vacation from the responsibilities as a Capo, a break worth taking.

He didn’t expect to find a woman like her with a mind full of filth.

She didn’t expect a man who would shatter all of her rules with only a grin.

Chicago keeps calling Tommaso home, and further out of reach from the one thing he wants more than ever. Camilla’s restless heart keeps getting in the way even when it’s stuck between what is, and what could be.

This should have been easy.

It didn’t have to be messy.

Falling in love is effortless.

It’s people who make it hard.

AAHHH the Donati and Rossi family are back into my life. Have I mentioned that I absolutely adore these mafia families?

Effortless revolves around Camilla Donati aka My Book Boyfriend Cross Donati’s sister and Tommaso Rossi. We were introduced to this couple when we read Cross + Catherine, and now we have the story behind yet another epic love story.
FYI, Cross Donati makes a lot of appearance and might I say, he is awesome as ever! Can this man be more perfect?! I swear, you’ll understand what I mean when you read the book.. So go read the book. hahaha.

Now, where should I begin? Camilla is a free-spirit through and through. She is wild-hearted, fun, straightforward yet has the focus of a boxer. She is ambitious and works hard in fulfilling her dream of being an NICU nurse. I’m going to put it out there, She’s what we wish we were. She’s a vixen in a way, where she doesn’t even have to even try to be seductive, her alluring beauty comes so naturally… She’s effortlessly effortless. Plus, she is such a hoot! I love her wittiness.

Tom aka Tommaso, I’d like to think Tom was going through a very very very early mid-life crisis hahaha. He is bored and rather fed up of having a rather monotonous yet busy and ‘uneventful’ life (we are talking ‘uneventful’ in terms of the mafia world here). Enter Camilla Donati. A free bird… A breath of fresh air to his stale existance… A conquest and an adventure… Camilla is everything he never knew he needed; Quick-witted, unashamed, tempting, bold and dangerous.

I have come to the conclusion that the Donati bloodline has magic in their bloodstream. Why you ask? Cause there is no way in hell one can be that suave and that bloody cool and arrogant without us wanting to punch their faces. hahaha. I love the fact that Camilla knocked every instinct off  Tommaso Rossi, who’s genes were full of stubborn, arrogant men. I love the fact that Tom too came into Cam’s world like a tornado and shattered every rule she ever prided herself on.I loved Cam and Tom’s banter. She gives it right back to him… they may be poles apart yet they are equals in every way. I will say that their ‘relationship’ ignited every fast… but it was trilling and terrifying to read.

I think I fell more in love with Tom after he said these words,

” I think my father always told me to remember that anything a man can do, a woman can do it better, only a weak man would insult her for it. Because weak mean don’t know how to deal with woman who are not looking for a man’s approval or opinion”

A round of applause for Tom, ladies and gentlemen…a round of applause. Woh!

Note: As I mentioned, Cross makes a lot of cameos in this book.. I’m not complaining. He IS Cam’s best friend/brother after all. I will say this, I swear this man always amazes me. Truly amazes me. His awesomeness bounds wonders I tell you…

I highly recommend you to give this book a try!
