Romance Book Review: Rachel Van Dyken's Bang Bang

Author: Rachel Van Dyken
Series Connection: Eagle Elite
Series Connection: Contemporary Romance, Mafia Romance

Purchase Link: Amazon

Whenever she needed him Ax was there for her. She knew him throughout her childhood and he had always taken care of her. Kept her safe from her family and his. Until one night she was forced to run away with him dying on the ground from gun shot wounds and in all likelihood dead. Or at least that was what she was led to believe.

Years later when she has hit rock bottom, out of money with very little choices left, Ax once again comes to Amy's rescue. Finding out he isn't dead brings mixed emotions to Amy because him being back in her life may mean her life is over.

This novella is middle book in the Eagle Elite mafia series. All of the books are made a stand alone reads, however it is a series that connects the characters together so readers may want to read the series from the beginning.

The story is set in first person from both Amy and Ax's point of view. There is a lot covered in this one short story and gives enough of Amy and Ax's story, plus the others in the series to generate an interest and move forward or backward in the series.

Although well written and a good storyline, this is not a warm and fuzzy sweet romance. There is some violence, although I suspect not as much as the earlier and later novels. Ax's character is totally alpha but more sensitive than one would expect for a Mafia hit man and Amy isn't as hardcore as the women usually portrayed in Mafia style romance. Both characters are easy to like and work well together. Definitely a good read for a lazy afternoon, if you like the real bad boys.

He was my best friend. Until he became my enemy. All within the span of one night.

Bang, Bang, Bang, Bang.

The rapid fire of gunshots became the soundtrack to my life.

This is the Mafia. Lines are blurred. Choices are never black and white. And the life you thought you knew is... one giant lie. He was dead.

And I didn't want his life to be in vain, so I tried to make something of myself. I tried and failed.

Now he's back. Alive. And he wants something... Me.

Nobody ever said the mafia played fair.

Welcome to The Family.
