The prequel to the much anticipated Mafia Royals series....
Something dark this way comes. He's gorgeous, mean, and mine. He catches me dreaming about him, and then just like my dream, he decides to make me his. I should have said no when he asked me to swear fealty to him. The knife clued me in first. The blood second. And third, it was the blessing of the most famous mafia bosses in the known world as they sat around the dinner table and told me that I had no choice but to join. Because they knew my secrets. And running meant I was nothing more than target practice. I said yes because of my bully. And he told me he'd keep me safe. But who keeps me safe from him?
“What kind of psycho world do you guys come from?”
“Oh, that’s easy.” He set me on my feet and then flicked my chin with his thumb and winked.
“The only world that matters—ours.”
I am die hard fan of the Eagle Elite books by RVD. I’m #teamchase for life. When I heard she was doing a spin off of EE I was thrilled. This is a completely new series set in the EE world. You don’t have to read those books to dive into this series. I would never tell you not to read them, because I love and think you should, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to.
What could be hotter than a book with mafia, Chase, and Chase being a politician?
God I love him.
This novella is about Chase’s son Asher and a new girl named Claire. The books starts out with a bang from the get go. We’re dropped right into the middle of the story and get to see how the kids (children of the couples from EE series) learn they have to take their place at Eagle Elite University.
While I do love this book, and can’t wait for the series, I feel that this one is only going to draw in the fans of the series already. It’s great don’t get me wrong, but I think it could have been a bit better if it was a smidge on the longer side. This way it could have had a bit more to drawn in the newer fans. I feel that this one might overwhelm them a bit. I really hope it doesn’t, because I would love for someone to discover a new series they can’t get enough of.
Besides all of that, there’s nothing I love more than being dropped back into the mafia romance genre. It’s edge of your seat, can’t put down, fan yourself good. RVD is an incrediable writer, and this book just shows how much she nails mafia romance stories. It’s going to be a wild ride with these books, and I can’t wait for more.
