This Story Is Seductive

Publisher's Summary

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 façade.

I am broken, and I don't 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. It's my job to mend the pieces that were scattered over 30 years ago. But the only way to fix it is to do something I swore I'd never do again: an arranged marriage. This time I won't fall. Or so help me God, I'll kill her myself.

My name is Sergio Abandonato. 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.

Blood in. No out.

***SPOILER ALERT: THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS IF HAVE NOT READ ELUDE***
What an amazing conclusion to Sergio's story! Elude brought us Sergio story. He had been forced to marry Andi and then had fallen so hard for her. ** spoiler alert** He was heartbroken and devastated when she passed away from leukemia.

Sergio now finds himself in the same situation but this time he is full of anger, rage and pain. Val was raised in New York. Young and innocent, she had no idea about her Mafia heritage. She is suddenly thrust into an arranged marriage with Sergio.

Empire brings us so much. Families coming together. Redemption. Mending. Pain. Passion. Mystery. More death.

Once again Rachel Van Dyken weaves an elaborate story filled with action, betrayal, love, and so much more!

Sergio is so complex that he needed two books to completely tell his story! And let's not forget that there are so many hot hot Hot times!

The family moves on as Sergio and Val move forward. This has been such a unique and fantastic way to catch up on the Eagle Elite Series. I am enjoying the audibles very much. Tom Taylorson, Keith Szarabajka and Erin Spencer do a phenomenal job in narration.

Now on to Enrage which I am so excited to listen to because I have already read the book! It was one of my favorite in the series!

Blood in. No out!

Too Fast

This love story for me happened too fast. I couldn't enjoy it. I usually wanna get to the end to see what's happened but with this one I really care. Two months and he's already over Andy. That for me is why I can't really get into this book. I give the story line 2.5 stars.

In other notes this series is amazing. Also the narrations are fantastic.

Rachel has done it again!!!

I loved it! Sergio and Val what a great story. And what an excellent job on the narration. Some books can be ruined by the reader, but this book was so enjoyable. Rachel did it again! Can't wait for Dante's story.

I can't get enough of these hot mob bosses

Who knew Sergio would end up being my favourite? I sure didn't see that one coming when I started this series. In this heartbreakingly beautiful story following Sergio as he is yet again forced into marriage for the 'good' of the family. Only a matter months following the death of his wife he is introduced to Val, who even though her family are mafia, has no clue about the lifestyle. Sergio is sworn to protect her, but tells her she will never have his heart. My heart broke for both Sergio, Val, and even Andi. With threats made against Val and her twin brother Dante, Sergio has his work cut out, protecting his heart and his wife. Fantastic writing, brilliant story, with a wonderful twist at the end, just perfect. The narration is yet again brilliant, I have not come across a series with so many narrators, who are so perfect for the part until Eagle Elite. Spot on. Loved it.
