“And in another life, your father wouldn’t kill me for loving you. I would have seen you pregnant with my children; I would have my ring on your finger. I would have your blood etched on my fucking soul, and I would give you my name.” Tears dripped off my chin as I nodded my head. “Serena Nicolasi.” I gasped and then changed my mind. “No. Serena De Lange-Nicolasi. Because if I get to marry the king , I want him all. The bad parts, the good. I want the forbidden. I want the Phoenix.”
Being able to escape back into the Eagle Elite world has been a treat I didn’t know I needed. In a world where “Blood in. No out.” is a way of life, I should have known this book was going to leave a mark on heart.
I can not stress enough that you do not have to read EE to dive into this spin off series. That being said, I couldn’t not not recommend you to read those. The last few are, with out a doubt, some of thee best books I’ve ever read. Nothing has effected me as much as Eulogy did, but man, this one gave it a run for its money.
This is insane, wonderful, twisted, but man there’s nothing better than it. Top 5 book of the year, no doubt about it. Rachel has kicked of this series with a book so powerful that she’s cemented herself as the gold standard for Mafia Romance for me.
That being said….I’m still gonna need more Chase as his politician self…..kthnxbai
Seriously……😂😘 I neeedddsss it bad.
“I’ve never been able to sleep when you’re in my arms, Serena.”
“So, what did you do the whole time?”
He hesitated and then, “Wait for you to fall asleep and wish that I wasn’t in love with my best friend…”
