He licked his lips and repeated what he always did when we had to perform, when we had to do our jobs. “I won’t be gentle with you.”
Our foreheads touched, my chest heaved with exertion like it was hard to breathe when he was so near, but really it was the promise that killed me, a promise that he wouldn’t enjoy touching me ever again, that I was more curse than cure, and yet, I knew it was all we would ever get, these fleeting moments where we did our job too well. “Then make it hurt, baby.” My voice cracked. “Make it hurt.”
His lips parted in a groan as he spun me into his arms and crushed his mouth to mine. It was part pain, part pleasure as he pulled my hair then slid a hand up my shirt like nobody was watching when everyone was.
We broke apart, mouths swollen, my lower lip was bleeding.
A reminder for both of us—this was no cease-fire, this wasn’t real, it was all a carefully constructed show.
“Mmmmm…” I smirked. “Looks like Junior’s not playing around tonight, ladies.”
Screams went up as Junior grabbed my ass and squeezed so hard, I knew I would bruise later. He roughly pulled me against his chest and nipped at my neck.
I told my body it didn’t feel good.
I told my heart we were safe.
And I forced myself to believe the lie every single time we touched.
Because to do otherwise—would destroy me.

|Let me first say that I have not read the original Elite series.|
The characters, the storyline and the emotion I felt while reading the prequel, Royal Bully captured my attention and my heart, but this book captured my everything down to me soul.
I was rooting for Serena and Junior from the little I knew of them while reading the prequel but that barely touched the surface of the chemistry and devotion, they had for each other. The love/hate banter between them made me swoon one page only to have my heart shredded the next.
The writing was phenomenal, I was so quickly pulled into the spell of RVD’s words I felt like I was right there with them my reality fell away, I was wrapped up in a world that was ran by the mob and I didn’t want to leave.
These kids who had always known what their adult lives would entail or thought they did but throughout this book the bond between the cousins strengthened and as that happened, they grew stronger as a family that were determined to leave their own mark on the world and make their own rules. I’m so happy I get to read along from the beginning as this series will certainly be an epic journey.
