Ruthless Princess: A Mafia Royals Romance about best friends turned enemies, by Rachel Van Dyken, the number-one New York Times bestselling author of the Eagle Elite series is LIVE.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend…
I never thought my father would ask this of me, to become the second generation at Eagle Elite University, to rule with an iron fist, and to take care of anyone who gets in our way.
But ever since the incident.
Ever since Him.
There’s been a war in our little clique.
After all, a house divided cannot stand.
He’s the problem, not me.
He used to kiss me like I was his oxygen.
Now he looks at me like I’m his poison.
But we both drank it, again and again, never believing there would be a day when our love would start a war.
And our friendship would shatter into a million pieces.
Then again, the worst thing you could do in the mafia is hang on to hope that your life will be normal.
The second worst thing?
Fall in love with your best friend.
And heir to the Nicolasi throne.

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.
NICUnurse’s Review of Ruthless Princess by Rachel Van Dyken
Mafia romance fans, Rachel Van Dyken is back with an all-new mafia series! Ruthless Princess is a standalone—let me repeat: STANDALONE book!! While it does have some appearances from beloved Eagle Elite characters, there is nothing in this book that means you have to read the entire EE series before reading this book. Now, if you WANT to tackle that series first, I say go for it. It’s my favorite series to date by one of my top fave authors of all time.
Now that we have made that perfectly clear, on with the review!
Ummm…this book literally left me speechless. In a good way, though, I promise! Soooo much happens in this book and telling you even just a little bit borders on spoiler territory. Let me see if I can sum it up. How many times can Rachel Van Dyken break your heart and stitch it almost all the way back up before she shatters it all over again? Yeah…I lost count. I think Junior is my new beloved anti-hero, although Ash is right up there with him. And Serena is wise beyond her years by the middle of this book. There was a part that made me want to stand up and cheer for all the new-gen mafia but it was something like 2 am and hubs would have totally growled at me if I had done that. So, in my head I was jumping up and down, clapping and cheering them on all while wiping away even more tears.
NICUnurse’s Rating: If you don’t like angsty, sexy books, this book will NOT be for you. It is chocked full of angst and sexy times. And language. And violence. But hey…it’s mafia so if that’s surprising to you, mafia romance is probably not your thing. Rachel totally hits it out of the park with Ruthless Princess. The emotional roller coaster was so wild, it was probably about a week before I felt like I’d finally gotten off the ride! This is NOT a feel-good romance but there are feel-good moments in it. It’s emotional. It’s gritty. Totally angsty. Sexy. And all that Rachel’s mafia romance junkies have come to expect from her and then some! But if you’re looking for soft and sweet, it’s not on these pages. As a long-time RVD fan, this one still had me amazed. I know she’s super proud of this book, and I’m here to tell you that she has every right to be.
I give Ruthless Princess by Rachel Van Dyken 5 out of 5 propellers!
