From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken comes a new story in her Mafia Royals series…
One of the first rules they give you when you’re undercover—never fall for the enemy. I didn’t just fall for the enemy. I became what I was supposed to hate. What’s worse: I fell in love with one. I live a double life, and both sides know it’s only a matter of time before I’m forced to choose. Rebirth through mafia blood. Or death at the hands of the very government I swore to protect. I have one more job before my time’s up. I just wish it was anything but babysitting a mafia princess who’s half my size but knows how to pack such a brutal punch I worry about my ability to have children. Tin’s small but terrifying. And I’m her new bodyguard while we all go on a much-needed vacation. I just have to stick to the plan. And remember rule number one. And stop kissing her.
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

NICUnurse’s Review of Mafia King by Rachel Van Dyken
I’m a long-time fan of Rachel Van Dyken. I found her in 2013 with her book, Ruin, and I haven’t looked back. Not long after that, I was sucked into her Eagle Elite series, and it’s been one of my most favorite series ever since then. (Seriously…pretty sure I border on obsession!) I’ve read every book in the series and the spin-off series, Mafia Royals, and I will continue to read every mafia book she writes until she writes them no more! The 1001 Dark Nights books are all written as an introduction to each author’s writing. And for those of us that are fans (or, in my case, die-hard fans), it’s a little bonus read. So Mafia King can absolutely be read as a standalone title. Fair warning, though: You’re likely to become obsessed like the rest of us!
This book was fabulous. I’ve loved Tank since we first were introduced to him, and I’ve been dying to know who he was and how he was connected to the five families. And now, I know! I didn’t expect Kartini’s story to be so heartbreaking, though. I knew she was a daddy’s girl (how could Sergio and Val’s daughter be anything but?!), and that something had changed for her––fundamentally changed her. However, as all of the girls have done, she didn’t let it keep her down. And when danger came calling yet again, she didn’t shrink from it. She confronted it head-on, not needing a knight in shining armor, but it was nice that he was there. While this is an enemies-to-lovers story, I’d argue that it’s also a friends-to-lovers story because that’s where they started. So a friends-to-enemies-to-lovers tale, I guess. Needless to say, these two had a lot to work through, a lot to fight through, to get to their HEA. Along the way, the rest of the gang provided the laugh-out-loud moments needed to keep this story from being all too heavy. And it’s written with all of the emotion we expect in an RVD mafia story tempered with the sarcastic wit that, again, keeps it from feeling overwhelmingly dark. And let’s not forget the steam!
It’s hard to go wrong with any Rachel Van Dyken book. If you’ve never read any of her work, this is a great place to start!
I give Mafia King by Rachel Van Dyken 5 out of 5 propellers!
