Excerpt: 

He licked his lips and repeated what he always did when we had to perform, when we had to do our jobs. “I won’t be gentle with you.”

Our foreheads touched, my chest heaved with exertion like it was hard to breathe when he was so near, but really it was the promise that killed me, a promise that he wouldn’t enjoy touching me ever again, that I was more curse than cure, and yet, I knew it was all we would ever get, these fleeting moments where we did our job too well. “Then make it hurt, baby.” My voice cracked. “Make it hurt.”

His lips parted in a groan as he spun me into his arms and crushed his mouth to mine. It was part pain, part pleasure as he pulled my hair then slid a hand up my shirt like nobody was watching when everyone was.

We broke apart, mouths swollen, my lower lip was bleeding.

A reminder for both of us—this was no cease-fire, this wasn’t real, it was all a carefully constructed show.

“Mmmmm…” I smirked. “Looks like Junior’s not playing around tonight, ladies.”

Screams went up as Junior grabbed my ass and squeezed so hard, I knew I would bruise later. He roughly pulled me against his chest and nipped at my neck.

I told my body it didn’t feel good.

I told my heart we were safe.

And I forced myself to believe the lie every single time we touched.

Because to do otherwise—would destroy me.

I love RVD's books and I love her original Eagle Elite books, but this new series - I don't know if it's for me. It was written well and the storyline was there but maybe the Covid virus had me in a mood. I really thought the characters were characters of themselves. Where was the Chase and Phoenix we'd come to love? Instead we'd have Phoenix, who beat his kid when he was a child to teach him a mafia lesson? It just didn't track for me. Then, there was the "don't acknowledge we're mafia, but tell everyone around that we're mafia!!" I know a little something of the mafia and here's what I know - don't acknowledge it, don't speak about it and for the love of Pete, don't flash it around like a diamond. This book is great fiction which is why I kept reading because it's fiction and I don't expect it to be "The Great American Novel." All-in-all, this was an almost 4-star read. As an author their worldbuilding is incredibly complicated and this book though more violent than any of the others...in my heart, I don't think she made it that way for just the giggles of it. I think she did it because it's a new series and that's where the world is going.
