So, Sergio is about to marry a 19-year-old girl by force. Yes! He has to have another arranged marriage. Sergio is absolutely not going to fall in love. He has left his heart with a girl that is buried in the ground.
Val is just 19 years old and she lives with her uncles and twin brother. She loves reading and she believes in true love. She also has no idea who she really is and when it comes to the mafia, the only info she has is what she has learned from TV or books. She is completely innocent in all things.
Their first encounter is not elegant for the young girl but Sergio who is still stuck on his first wife doesn’t really notice. However, Sergio and Frank are at a party because Val has just got engaged to another guy who Val can’t stand. But, at the party he tries to kiss her, she says no, but he tries again and it’s Sergio that comes to her rescue. That is when she finds out she is to marry him.
She finds him gorgeous and sexy as hell, but his heart is not in it and he tells Val at the start that he will never lover her, share his bed but, he will protect her with his life and she will always be safe with him.
I can’t really say much more because if I do I will be giving away spoilers. What I will say is that this may not have as much action in it as the other Eagle Elite stories but, this is about Sergio’s heart being healed and Val being the one to do it. There is action in it, this is the Mafia. There are shocks in this book and I will say that not only do I love this book, I read it in one day and when I was finished I went back to beginning and started re-reading it all over again. I have read it about 4 times so far.Read more ›
It's not often that I find a book that I never want to end, but this was just such a story. From the heartbreak of Elude we experience the hope of Empire as Sergio’s true destiny is revealed.
With so many characters to love and cherish, this series continues to go from strength to strength. Sergio’s story has to be my favourite though. With his broken heart and vulnerability, you can’t help but cry with him as his faces the cruel fate bestowed upon him. We knew his destiny had been written for him by Luca but until you witness it, you wouldn’t believe that his past could have a positive influence on his future.
This really is a rollercoaster of a story which is captured in two parts. It’s definitely worthwhile re-reading Elude before starting Empire in order to remember Sergio's tragic story to date.
As expected, the rest of the families play a large part in this story with the usual fun and antics courtesy of Nixon et al. The comedic side to this series is what makes it magical in my eyes and despite the dark undercurrent, the series continues to entertain with light hearted banter interspersed with touches of sadness.
There was another delightful addition to the key players in this series in the form of twins: Valentina and Dante. With Dante’s story up next, it’s going to be a very long wait until summer 2017. Valentina turned out to be a breath of fresh air in this story. Her innocence is beguiling, especially in the way she relates to Sergio.
If I could give this story 10 Stars I would. It captivated me from start to finish and despite the tears that I shed, the story left me yet again wanting more from this truly amazing series and the key players who live their lives through the pages of each book.
This is the seventh instalment in the Eagle Elite series and this story centres on Sergio. His story started in Elude and you really need to read that first to understand the full story and understand Sergio. It really doesn't work otherwise. Having said that this story is so well written you probably still love it going in blind but my advice is definitely read Elude first.
Sergio is less than happy but resigned to the fact that he needs to make an advantageous marriage for the sake of strengthening the family. He's lost and broken and is struggling. His emotions are like a festering open wound and he's unable to see any way out of it.
Valentina (Val) was completely different from how I was expecting, not that I really knew what to expect lol. She was sweet and innocent and different from the other girls in this series. She had practically no knowledge of her heritage and is thrust in to a situation that she doesn't really understand or ask for.
This story has lots of twists and turns, some completely unexpected, was action packed with some humour but also very emotional. I wasn't sure how to call this before I read it as I really couldn't see how this could end in a way that would truly satisfy the reader. The plot is intricately woven in a very clever way and, like I said took completely unexpected turns. That's unusual for me as I normally see things coming a mile off lol.
I loved every second of this. I really enjoyed being inside Frank's head at times too as he's a cool, complex character and it was great to have a little peak into his thoughts.Read more ›
