BOOK REVIEW: EMBER (Eagle Elite #5)

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.


5++ "Rise From The Ashes" Reading Owls

First of all, I am a huge Rachel Van Dyken fan and I love her books, period.
So girls hold your breath because this is Phoenix's story. 

I wanna curse myself, oh why in the hell did I ignore this book for 1 year, can you believe it? 1 whole year. I used to come across this title almost every day but I just ignored. why?, because it was Phoenix's story. I always thought that reading Phoenix's book is a complete time-waste but the author proved me wrong and now Ember is my favorite from the entire eagle elite series. Rachel Van Dyken made me fall in love with Phoenix and I just can't believe it. I hated Phoenix in all the previous eagle elite books but now I completely adore him. I want more Phoenix, can you hear me dearest author, please give me more Phoenix and Bee.


This is Bee's and Phoenix's story. Bee, as we all know, is Tex's sister and Phoenix has orders to protect her which means he is her bodyguard for the time being. Phoenix is very uncomfortable and uneasy around girls because of his past. He is not what he seems and he is definitely not ready for relationships and stuff. He is damaged beyond repair.


Bee, on the other hand, has a huge huge crush on Phoenix from the very first time they met and she has all the intentions to get under his skin and make him love her. Bee wants to love and be loved in return. She was never loved as a child, all the mercy of her as#hole of a father and now she wants to start afresh. So yeah, you can say that she has some major daddy issues. In spite of her issues, she is very cheerful and her energy is very infectious. She is the light of Phoenix's darkness. She is everything that Phoenix needs. 

Bee is so cute and her childish attitude added the much-needed humor in the story. She treats Phoenix as a normal person and not as a killer or a rapist. 



"I believe in you," she blurted, tears in her eyes. 
"I just... I want you to know that despite everything... I believe in you.” 

Phoenix was really mean to her, in the beginning, to keep her safe from himself and his dark soul but Bee cracks his walls and Phoenix realizes that this girl is not gonna leave him alone so he has to come on terms with himself.

Now talk about the sexual tension, oh boy was it strong. It was like the electric current jolt. They were intensely attracted to each other. I was like "get your shit together Phoenix and just kiss her dammit!!"*ugh, it was frustrating*.

“Warm fuzzies?"

"I don't do warm fuzzies."

Well, we can't win 'em all.
"I do scorching blazes," he muttered under his breath. 
"That sear you alive.”


The story has so many ups and downs and we come to know about Phoenix's past which is really really heartbreaking. This book is all about Phoenix's regrets and redemption and how a girl who herself is broken fixes him and ultimately fixes herself. Expect some action, it is Mafia guys, the story is incomplete without the gunshots and kidnapping*lol*. There is a family drama, oh common Bee is Tex's sister guys, and Tex is gonna turn his big brother mode on *yikes*. Also, there's a huge twist and you are going to love it, believe me.


Now leave everything you are doing and go grab this book and start reading. I am completely serious, read it. This is the kind of story that remains in your hearts forever.

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY VENGEANCE(born in blood mafia chronicles #5 ) BY CORA REILLY

Growl
He’d never had something to himself, never even dared to dream about owning something so precious. He was the unwanted bastard son who’d always had to content himself with the leftovers of others. And now they’d given him what only a few weeks ago had been out of his reach, someone he wasn’t even allowed to admire from afar, one of their most prized possessions. Thrown at his feet because he was who he was because they were certain he would break her. He was her punishment, a fate worse than death, a way to deliver the ultimate punishment to her father who had displeased them so greatly.

Cara
She had always been the good girl. It didn’t protect her.
She didn’t know his real name. People called him Growl to his face and the Bastard behind his back. Both were names he couldn’t possibly have chosen for himself. His eyes were empty, a mirror to throw back her own fear at her. He was a brutal hand of the Las Vegas Camorra.
And now she was at his mercy.

BOOK REVIEW: CROWN OF LIES (crown of lies duet 1) BY PEPPER WINTERS

Noelle Charlston lives a fairy-tale life: a doting father, a powerful job, and a future blessed with financial security. 
However, two meetings with two men changes her happy existence forever. First, she meets the man who makes her heart sing. Three years later, she meets the man who makes her blood quiver. 
Broken-hearted from a teenage romance, Noelle’s freedom is no longer hers. It belongs to the stranger her father believes is her perfect match. The stranger who pulls his lies over everyone he touches.  Including her. 
Seduced and manipulated, Noelle gives into the mysterious Penn Everett. The lies he spins, the truth he hides, the mystery he weaves—it’s all enough to slowly erode the woman she is and turn her into something else. 
Until her past collides with her present.  And it’s her turn to lie. 
To everyone…including herself.
