A mafia romance about secrets and soulmates by Rachel Van Dyken, the number one New York Times bestselling author of the Eagle Elite series.

The Woods are Lovely, dark, and deep, but I have promises to keep and miles to go, before I sleep —Robert Frost

I was born under fire and swore to protect her until my dying day, I just never knew that one day, I'd be the very monster I was protecting her from.

She didn't know it was me.

She didn't know that I had no choice and would do it again and again to save her.

I may as well have given her the mark on her finger.

The one that shows where her loyalty must lie.

Because we don't sin in silence.

And eventually, you have to pay up what you owe.

My need to protect her turned into a lie to save her.

And when she found out—I turned in to the very monster I was trying to protect her from.

Watching Violet Abandonato walk out of my life was like a knife to the chest, a wound that refused to heal.

The bosses sent me to protect her, to watch over her even though I was the demon she fled.

We both carry scars.

But if all I can have is her hate for as long as I breathe.

I'll take it.

Because at the end of the day, I should burn in Hell forever thinking Chase Abandonato's perfect angel would pick me—over her perfect life.

"I broke you," I confessed.

"The worst part… is that you liked it," she snapped right back.

Welcome to the second generation of the mafia, may the best man or woman, be left standing.

May God bless our tainted souls.

My Review 💋

Hell, I was her demon. And now I was wiping her tears and holding her close. I was no saint. I was the darkness that chased her. I was what haunted her dreams, I was her nightmare, and yet she held me like I was the knight that had ridden in on my white horse—she was right about one thing— the horse was white, but the knight was no servant to the king —he was fallen , and she’d singlehandedly resurrected him, not realizing something was very wrong.

Holy shit.

Wrecked. I am totally wrecked.

It seems like after reading this book , the only two books in my vocabulary are 'Holy shit' and 'oh my god' . None of you are prepared for Breaker and Violet. I thought this would be a regular mafia story , but it was so much more! Those twists and turns had me at the edge of my seat and that major plot twist!!! It seems like no matter how much I praise this author for that , it would be less.

Breaker is the adopted son of Tex and Mo. He has always been in love with Violet , who is the eldest child of senator Chase and Luc. Violet has a role to play. Being the senator's daughter is not an easy task. Every move by her has to be calculated and she can't loose her control. Well that would have been easier , if her chosen bodyguard hadn't been the most beautiful and infuriating boy ever.

Forgive me—” I whispered into the cool night air “— for showing you the knight, when the whole time, I was the wolf. Forgive me, God. Forgive me. Amen.”

Breaker campisi is a god among Campus. Paired with his angel like features , he has every girl falling at his feet. But his heart has always been with the girl whom he is tasked to protect with his life. The ice queen. The girl who would never be his. That didn't stop him from taking a little taste and now he was addicted. That is until fate messed it all up and he was forced to break the only girl he ever loved. She thinks he is her knight. How was he supposed to tell her that he had always been the wolf?

Children.” Andrei yawned. “Put the knives away. Please.” Violet jerked away. I flipped her off. And the universe naturally restored itself to rights. With Violet ready to impale me. And my body wishing it could impale her. Fantastic.

I was truly not prepared for this story! I am not even kidding here! No matter how many times , I read a certain scene, I can't get over that plot twist!!!! Rachel is the true queen of mafia Romance , and everytime I think she has outdone herself through her books , she brings another one and I am again awestruck!

Then there were those little teases of Ash and Annie's story. I want their book now!!! I can't wait anymore. She has absolutely driven me crazy with this book and I can't wait for you guys to read this book! One of my definite top reads of this year. Rvd has truly slayed us all in this book!
