I have lost everything.
My purpose.
My love.
My soul.
Death knocks on my door, I want to answer, but every time I reach for the handle--the promise I made her, brings me back.
So I breathe.
I live.
I hate.
And I allow the anger to boil beneath the surface of a perfectly indifferent facade.
I am broken, I dont want to be fixed.
One last trip to New York, one last chance to redeem a lost part of the mafia family. The Empire is crumbling and it's my job to fix it, my job to mend the pieces that were scattered over thirty years ago.
The only issue is, the only way to fix, is to do something I swore I'd never do again.
An arranged marriage.
Only this time.
I won't fall.
Or so help me God, I'll kill her myself.
My name is Sergio Abandanoto, you think you know my pain, my suffering, my anger, my hate--you have no idea.
I am the mafia.
I am the darkness.
Blood in. No out.

“Even those who have accepted the state of being lost… dream of being found.”

This is really H-A-R-D. No spoilers…

This is one of the EAGLE ELITE Series – so my expectations were high. I have always loved every book there is. And this one was no exception. I love the anticipation, the storyline, the danger that is looming, all the twists and turns that filled each pages that would make you gasp, and let’s not forget the love story that is growing that is total swoon-worthy.

The characters were amazing as well. Sergio is still grieving, and it was just beautiful how everything turned out for him. And our sweet Val, who’s one of my favorite female leads in the series right now. The both of them were pretty much amazing! You can’t help but just fall in love with them!

EMPIRE was a story of second chance – in love, and in life. It’s a story of letting go, finding love and hope even at the bleakest of times.

Rachel Van Dyken sure knows how to stop her reader’s time, and have him/her hooked with each page. I was unable to put this down, this gave me all the feels without breaking my heart too much. I can’t find the exact words to express how much I love this book! There were just too many emotions, surprises, and there’s that flicker of hope of happy-ever-after that would put you on the edge of your seat. I can’t wait for the next book in the series!
