Heavy is the head that wears the crown …
Andino Marcello’s world is turned upside down when overnight he goes from capo to boss-in-waiting for the Marcello empire. Here, duty waits on no one and with it comes expectations he isn’t sure he can fulfill. At least, not in a way the mafia expects.
Every choice in this life has consequences.
Even if that choice is love.
The one thing Andino won’t budge on is having Haven Murphy at his side. No matter the cost, she will be his. Whether that means starting a war, hurting the person he loves the most, or changing the very foundation upon which the Marcello legacy was built.
For her, he will do it.
It’s the only vow he might be able to keep.
Andino + Haven: The Complete Duet  features the full-length novels Duty  and Vow  as well as the companion novella, One Last Time.

Let's start off by saying that Bethany Kris is one of our all-time favorite authors as her characters are intriguing, broken, deadly, love-able, and she creates tons of drama, suspense, romance and awesome bad guys that always keeps us glued to the pages the entire time and Andino's Duet was all these things and more.

The character's in this current tale  were totally awesome. I will have to admit that we have had a little bit of a love\hate relationship with Andino up to this point but, In this story we really saw Andino in a whole different light, and we loved what we saw.Andino was all about family first meaning the mafia, but this time around Andino went to the extreme to see that his families safety and welfare of his mafia family and that of his families legacy. His family members were too protected at all cost and the threat to them gone once and for all.

We loved that Andino was smart ,conniving, cunning, a master manipulator in this tale but, what we loved most is that Andino was bitten by the love bug like so many others in his family and it's the perfect time as his life is currently messy and hard and has tons of obstacles in his way but,  he is working hard to obtain what he desires the most and it will be all the more rewarding if things play out the way he hopes they will. One thing that we always loved the most about Andino is his devotion to John whether it is watching his back or having it and also never treating him differently because of his struggling issues with mental illness.

Haven was a breath of fresh air, and we loved her sassiness, winning personality, loyalty and her sexy good looks and her devotion to her family and friends and the lengths she goes to seeing them happy and healthy. We loved the little firecracker with her tell it like it is attitude and her attitude is just the right thing to shake things up in Andino's regimented world. We loved seeing a whole other side of Andino just by loving Haven and spending every free moment he had to spend with her as she calmed all the cogs that were always moving in his brain and with Haven he could turn it all off and just be Andino the man and not Andino the Don.

Andino with his dog Snaps priceless !

This tale took us on one heck of a ride with a very messy love story and a story that looked bleak and unattainable to having tons of drama, suspense, intrigue and a great cast of characters as those Marcello's are the bomb and that is including their women. This story was filled with a lot of moving parts and twists and turns keeping us constantly engrossed in the pages.Andino is playing one of the biggest chess games of his life to see if his play and his biggest gamble will play out the way he wants it to, and then he would  be rewarded  with the only women he has ever loved and his desire to spend a lifetime with the women who stole his heart that is his everything and is his equal in every way.

"A beautiful written story, and we absolutely loved it !"
