I have lost everything.
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.
And I allow the anger to oil beneath the surface of a perfectly indifferent facade. I am broken, I don’t want to be fixed.
But 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.
A trip to New York, only one chance to redeem a lost part of our mafia family.
The only issue is, the only way to fix it, 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 will kill her myself.
My name is Sergio Abandonoto, 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.
Ahh where to start with this one? First, Empire was absolutely AMAZING!!!! This entire series is amazing. Each characters personality literally shines through the pages as you read and you can’t help but fall in love with each and every one of them.
It was nice seeing more Sergio and the rest of the gang. I was so curious how he was doing after what happened in Elude. Sergio is sexy, caring, compassionate but broken. Broken heart, broken trust in life. He is so very angry and sad. But, he still handles business like a boss! His next assignment is to essentially save Valentina.
Little does anyone know the ties Val has to parts of Sergio’s life (I will leave that for your own discovery when you read but its amazzzzing!). She is so in the dark about her entire life, who she really is, what her family actually does. When she learns the truth will it break her or make her stronger? Once she’s with Sergio can she break down his walls and make him feel again or will he completely shut her down because he can’t let go of his heartbreak?
Rachel Van Dyken has done an impeccable job with this entire series. You laugh, you cry, you get angry, sometimes downright pissed but she has a knack for tying it all up in a pretty bow. The Eagle Elite Series continues to just blow me away with every book I read.
I thought Elude topped the charts, well Empire just took the top spot for me. I am ready for the next one, bring it on!
