“Because I was already falling for pieces of her. correction, I was becoming borderline obsessed with those sharp little pieces”
Here is one of those sequels I have been dying to read ever since I put down ELITE. Chase deserves his happy ending and I wanted to give him that right after what happened previously. Trace & Nixon is having theirs, his should be next. But happy ending seemed to lurk in dangerous grounds, and he needed to pass by it in order to get it.
It was one heck of a ride with this two! I knew it would really be a handful, knowing they had a past, and Mil is now the head of the De Lange clan. Mil, however, is not telling the whole truth. She might tell him some things, but she’s keeping the rest. It took one favor, and one yes to once again start a chase, a chase that might lead to their deaths.
Mil had been in love with Chase since she was fourteen years old, along the years, it turned into hate. Now, he had agreed to help her – but he was as dangerous to her heart as she can remember, and perhaps more. Chase had grown to be pretty much dangerous and irresistible – a fatal combination that might destroy her heart. He protects what is his, and he would do anything for his wife, even if it means catching a bullet to save her.
Chase can be dangerous, but he was Mil’s safe. He can be sweet when he wanted too and he was adorable when he follows his wife around like a, well, puppy (although it’s hard to imagine a mafia boss do that!) I was really happy when he finally realized that someone else was meant for him, and embraced the emotion rather than ran away with it.
Mil, on the other hand, didn’t know what it takes to be a Mafia boss, at first. She was young, she was a woman, and now she was the boss of one of the Mafia Clans. How can she do it? Perhaps, Chase would help? Perhaps it would Chase who would lead? Ah… Mil gave me the biggest surprise of my life when she put on her big girl panties and acted like she was born to be the head of the clan. I freakin love this girl!
“When I think of bravery, I think of you.”
The family secrets were small blasts that kept on detonating until the final blast in the end shed enough bloodshed I wonder if I can handle one more secret from these guys. This is what makes this novel so engaging to read – the surprises that keeps on popping up on each pages and the suspense that had me biting my nails the entire time.
Of course, the group was still complete. It was nice to see Nixon and Trace once again – Nixon finally being able to breathe freely once he was sure Trace was all his, and of course Mo and Tex whom I definitely come to adore – I wonder what the future holds for them… I’m sure their story would be an exciting one!
I fell in love with this series the first time I met this young mafia guys who are fiercely brave and loyal. They can be dangerous, but they protect what is theirs and they love their partners with everything that they have. Once you started reading this series, you will love the characters more and more as we dig deeper into their world and face all those risks that comes with their position. It’s a compelling read that will have your hearts beating out of your cage with its suspense and action, swoon with its romance and squirm with its steamy scenes.
Now it’s TEX & MO’s turn – I can feel the excitement had just risen to another level. Yay! Can’t wait!
