Scandalous Prince by Rachel Van Dyken

I don't often cry when reading books. It is a far slight chance of it happening with most reads. Unless it is a RVD read. SOMEHOW this woman ALWAYS has SOMETHING that brings me to the edge. This book? You are not prepared.
The funny high is, is that its never the part of the book you expect it to be that brings you to your knees. That is a talent Rachel has, she can topple you in a single line of text and you never see it coming. This book was fire from start to end. Breaker and Violet? You KNEW with the end of book one in this new series, that this novel was going to run you rampant, and it absolutely did. Go in blind, you wont regret it at all. Breaker delivers a story that simultaneously breaks your heart and empowers you at the same time. Don't ask me how, again, it is a RVD read.

A mafia romance about secrets and soulmates by Rachel Van Dyken, the number one New York Times bestselling author of the Eagle Elite series. The Woods are Lovely, dark, and deep, but I have promises to keep and miles to go, before I sleep —Robert Frost I was born under fire and swore to protect her until my dying day, I just never knew that one day, I'd be the very monster I was protecting her from. She didn't know it was me. She didn't know that I had no choice and would do it again and again to save her. I may as well have given her the mark on her finger. The one that shows where her loyalty must lie. Because we don't sin in silence. And eventually, you have to pay up what you owe. My need to protect her turned into a lie to save her. And when she found out—I turned in to the very monster I was trying to protect her from. Watching Violet Abandonato walk out of my life was like a knife to the chest, a wound that refused to heal. The bosses sent me to protect her, to watch over her even though I was the demon she fled. We both carry scars. But if all I can have is her hate for as long as I breathe. I'll take it. Because at the end of the day, I should burn in Hell forever thinking Chase Abandonato's perfect angel would pick me—over her perfect life. "I broke you," I confessed. "The worst part… is that you liked it," she snapped right back. Welcome to the second generation of the mafia, may the best man or woman, be left standing. May God bless our tainted souls.
