Pretty things always tell lies …
Cory Rossi isn’t what you would expect the youngest son of the Chicago mob’s underboss to be. Despite what everyone thinks, he can actually do what he’s told. He just does it his own way. The problem with that is every tattooed- and leather-covered inch of him screams one thing to Della Costello—total heartbreak. It’s all men like him do, right? One hook-up, when he didn’t even know her name, was all she could afford.
Their one-time encounter should have stopped there. But an ex that causes problems for her business—and the mob’s—and Cory becomes her new shadow until the bullets quiet in the streets. It gets harder and harder to stay out of his bed.
They’ll walk a fine line. And there is no mercy in this tragedy.
For love and lost blood, once more, Chicago will rage.
Pretty Lies is a standalone romantic suspense within Bethany-Kris’s Commission World.


Another fantastic read from Bethany-Kris. I was instantly drawn to this book after reading the blurb and I'm happy I got the opportunity to read it. Emotion, Drama, action, this book had it all and kept me glued to the pages. I loved the interactions between Corry and Della. The protagonists are not only likable but believable, there’s plenty of steam and a chemistry that can be felt throughout the book, it’s gritty with twists and turns, betrayal and angst. As a woman in the mob Della was different from what I thought she would be, she's fierce and strong-headed and knows to stand her ground. I loved that about her. And Corry was so determined to protect her at all costs, it was very heartwarming. An enduring dark mafia romance. A well-scripted and easy to follow story with engaging and interesting characters. I highly recommend this book!
