Entangled Entangled by Bethany-Kris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

✼✼✼ 5 “I wanna be Mrs. Guzzi” Stars ✼✼✼

“His soul was entangled with a woman who no longer wanted him, even if he would still die for her. Gian had no one to blame for that but himself.”

Ain’t that the truth. Where we left off in Unraveled , Cara had found out the truth about Gian’s situation. She found out that they had no real future, not one that she would dream of. Bottom line: he lied to her, even if it was a lie of omission. Her reputation was smeared and her heart was broken. So was Gian’s. In Entangled , it was obvious that Gian couldn’t let go of Cara. His heart and soul were tied to her, but he knew that if they were to ever try again, she would have to come to him. It was also evident that Cara was still very much in love with him. So I couldn’t have been happier when they reconnected and rekindled their passionate affair.

“I have only ever loved you.” - Gian

Now, I’m not sure if those words, as believable as they are, would be enough for me to overlook a wife. Not my personal pleasure, however, I was all for it with this couple. There was no denying the love and passion and overall oneness shared between them. It virtually seeped from the pages. It left this poor reader a little envious, if I were being completely honest. Yeah, so what if Cara was a goomah? She really did get the best from her man. She may not carry his name, but she got his time, affection, loyalty and dedication. And his wife got what again? Not his heart. Not his soul. Cara was his everything.

“He loved her crazy, but she didn’t entirely know why. He loved her stupid, and she liked it too much. It was all kinds of bad. They were all kinds of wrong. Maybe that’s just how they were supposed to be.”

I’m not all too familiar with mob culture other than what I’ve seen in movies or from the Sopranos, but why was there so much hoopla about appearances? It felt so utterly old school. Who cares if he’s separated from his wife? Who cares that they don’t live together? The fact that Gian spent even one night in that mansion with that woman made me so angry. I was fuming Every. Single. Time!! Everyone… and I mean EVERYONE… seemed to know that he was with and in love with Cara. It was understood. It was more than apparent to the most oblivious person alive. Why then… WHY… was her existence given less importance when no one even knew his wife??? She was a freaking figurehead!! If anything aggravated my last nerve in this story, it was this.

Bethany-Kris gave us a story full of drama, suspense, betrayals, love and endless sexual desire. It was also full of mafia subtext that made it read like a serial or a movie. It would definitely be something that I would watch. If you’re looking for a book about a couple whose love is so strong that it withstands every obstacle thrown in its way and allows them to even cheat death, then I urge you to buy the Guzzi Duet today!!

“Live and love had entangled her heart and soul with Gian Guzzi. He was hers.” And she was most definitely his.
