I am a Killer. A Rapist. A Monster.
I know only pain and survival.
That is until the Cappo's sister walked into my life.
And changed everything.
She's a light who makes my darkness darker, her smile makes my heart turn to ice, and I can't escape the fear her seductive looks instill--knowing it's only a matter of time before I fail--again, and take her for myself.
This is the story of my redemption.
But it's not pretty...I died, and now I'm alive, but not living, breathing but not surviving. I am Phoenix De Lange, son to a murdered mob boss, estranged brother, horrible friend, monster in the making, newest leader to one of the most powerful families in the Cosa Nostra.
And I will have my vengeance.
Or die trying.
I am Phoenix De Lange.
Death is all I know.
Until she offers me a piece of life--I can't resist taking.
Ember by Rachel Van Dyken is a dark in your face taboo story. Why is it that the forbidden fruit always taste the best? We always want what we can't have or what is not good for us and that is human nature. Good girls vs. Bad boys. Ember is a little different.
This is not just forbidden fruit, this could absolutely fruit that would get him or both of them killed. Bee wasn't just any girl either, she is like a sister to him. Well she is Cappo's sister and that makes her off limits. He is assigned to protect her while she is at college. The looks she gives him are not the looks of a little girl, they are seductive and they make him long with want, that is something he can't afford with his past. Bee has awoke something in him that has been dead but he isn't sure he can take the risk- for her sake.
Bee needs someone to love her and take care of her. She needs to feel wanted and desired. She has never had true love in her life, not even from her family. Growing up in a mob family of men that do not know how to show affection would be hard for anyone. There is something about Phoenix that draws her to him. He can be caring and sometimes he can even seem sweet. He is very protective, but wont open up to her.
This book had me turning my pages just as fast as I could to see what would happen next, very drama filled! I haven't read the rest of the series so I didn't know what had been going on with the rest of the characters. These two seemed to be well developed but most of the other not. I don't want to mention too much because I know there are some major spoilers. If you have kept up with this series, I'm sure this is a must read, it is action packed. If you haven't started the series yet, I encourage you to give it a try, I'm going back and starting at the beginning. I give this 4 stars.
She keeps her home in Idaho with her Husband and their snoring Boxer, Sir Winston Churchill. She loves to hear from readers! You can follow her writing journey at www.rachelvandykenauthor.com
