"Stop what you're doing and read Scandalous Prince by Rachel Van Dyken RIGHT NOW! It's action packed with plenty of secrets and full of smoldering romance! If you love mafia romance, you will LOVE this book!" - New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy

Scandalous Prince by Rachel Van Dyken is now live!

A mafia romance about secrets and soulmates by Rachel Van Dyken, the number one New York Times bestselling author of the Eagle Elite series.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep, but I have promises to keep and miles to go, before I sleep. --Robert Frost

I was born under fire and swore to protect her until my dying day, I just never knew that one day, I'd be the very monster I was protecting her from.

She didn't know it was me.

She didn't know that I had no choice and would do it again and again to save her.

I may as well have given her the mark on her finger.

The one that shows where her loyalty must lie.

Because we don't sin in silence.

And eventually, you have to pay up what you owe.

My need to protect her turned into a lie to save her.

And when she found out--I turned in to the very monster I was trying to protect her from.

Watching Violet Abandonato walk out of my life was like a knife to the chest, a wound that refused to heal.

The bosses sent me to protect her, to watch over her even though I was the demon she fled.

We both carry scars.

But if all I can have is her hate for as long as I breathe.

I'll take it.

Because at the end of the day, I should burn in Hell forever thinking Chase Abandonato's perfect angel would pick me--over her perfect life.

"I broke you," I confessed.

"The worst part... is that you liked it," she snapped right back.

Welcome to the second generation of the mafia, may the best man or woman, be left standing.

May God bless our tainted souls.


5* read.

The Queen of Mafia Romance is back and just as good as ever.

This is a really hard review to write without giving away some massive spoilers, so I will keep it quite short and sweet and not say anything about the story or the main characters. I literally could not put this book down and that was right from the beginning. There was so many twists and turns that when you think you may know where it's going bam another twist.  I spent most of the book going what the hell is happening right now, like wtf did I just read. It was a story I wasn't prepared for yet completly fell in love with. The dark mixed with the light, the dirty mixed with the sweet, just a rollercoaster of a read that had me all over the place with emotions.

Another addictive book by an amazing author. I was completly immersed in this book, thankyou for taking my mind off things for awhile. I cant wait for more from the Mafia Queen.

Addicted to Him by New York Times, USA Today and international bestselling author Monica Murphy is now live!

Eli Bennett.

Quarterback at our biggest rival high school.

My brother's worst enemy.

So why can't I stop thinking about him?

For one, he's totally gorgeous and boy, does he know it. He's an arrogant trash talker who brings drama wherever he goes.

And for some reason, he's set his sights on me.

The more I get to know him, the more I realize he's actually kind of...sweet. Deep down, he's broken. Hurting. He's dealing with a lot, but he also puts on a major front so no one can tell. I want to be there for him. I want to be with him. But because everyone in my life hates Eli, we have to keep our relationship a secret.

The problem with secrets is they never stay secret for long...

 Download today! 







“Your team is looking strong this season,” Eli says.

“That’s because we are strong.” It’s my turn to wear the cocky smile as I sit on a nearby

barstool. “Be prepared for us to kick your ass during our homecoming.”

He makes a dismissive noise. “Good luck with that. We’ve been working on taking your

team down for years. This is going to be the game where we finally make it happen.”

“You really believe that?” I raise a brow.

He rounds the kitchen island so he’s across from me, resting his elbows on the marble

countertop before he leans in. His face comes closer and closer to mine, until he’s right there.

Directly in front of me. “I believe in my team, just as strongly as you believe in yours.”

I realize our mouths are perfectly aligned. He’s definitely within kissing distance, and I

remember what it was like. Kissing Eli. Touching Eli. Feeling his hands on me. My breaths

become shorter and my heart thumps wildly. Maybe I should tell him to back off. Or maybe I

should back away myself. But I don’t move.

Neither does he.

“It’s weird having you here in my kitchen on a Friday night.” He reaches out, tugging

gently on the end of my ponytail. “Wearing your Badger gear.”

“Right.” I release a shuddery breath, hoping he doesn’t realize how much he’s affecting

me. “Like I told you earlier, I need to change.”

“You can change in my room,” he offers, raising his brows.

“I’m not going to your room tonight Eli,” I tell him sternly. I have to have some sort of

boundaries, or I won’t respect myself in the morning.

And neither will he.

“Want to go for a swim?” he asks, still not changing his position.

Still directly in my face.

“I didn’t bring a swimsuit,” I answer, my voice soft.

“That’s okay. We don’t need swimsuits.” His eyes are dancing, looking more than a little

pleased with himself.

“I’m not skinny dipping with you.”

“That’s a damn shame. I was hoping I could catch a glimpse of naked Ava.”

Ha. He wishes. “In your dreams.”

“You are so right,” he says with a sigh. “You don’t even know.”

I don’t want to know.

Well, I sort of do. Not that I’d tell him that.

“I can wear my sports bra and briefs,” I tell him, and when he frowns, I continue, “To

swim in.”

His frown disappears, replaced by a hopeful expression. “You’ll really swim with me?”

“Yeah. Sure. But you can’t get too handsy.” Now I lean in even closer, our mouths only

inches apart. “I’m not that kind of girl.”

He chuckles, and the sound is warm, wrapping all around me. “You give as good as you

get, don’t you?”

“Even better, if you’re lucky,” I say, breathing deeply as I slowly pull away from him. I

don’t even know where I’m coming up with this stuff. Swear he brings it out of me. “But I don’t

think you’re ever going to get lucky with me, Bennett.”

“You can’t challenge me like that. Game fucking on.” He holds his hand out for a bro

shake and I take it, ready for him to do some elaborate handshake ritual, but he tricks me at the

last minute.

Instead, he brings my hand to his mouth, his gaze never leaving mine, as he oh so slowly

kisses my knuckles. “I’m going to make you mine someday, Ava. Watch me.”

Oh God.

I am in so much trouble.

SICKO by Amo Jones Release Date: September 1st   Add to Goodreads: 


AVAILABLE NOW!! FREE in Kindle Unlimited! Amazon US: Amazon UK: Amazon CA: Amazon AU: 


Blurb: He was my foster brother. He swore to protect me. He failed. They all failed. I’m an open box of passé photographs, snapped in chaste daylight, but filtered in sepia. I’m the past that he tried to forget, and he was the future I needed. When he left six years ago, I screamed for him every night. But then it all stopped. My screams were suddenly muffled by cruelty, and further coaxed by pain. But he has come back. He’s not the cute big brother I had a furtive crush on, or the bad boy, rich brat that I hated to love. He’s the ruthless vice president of Wolf Pack MC, and he doesn’t answer to Royce Kane anymore. He answers to Sicko.   



5 massive star read.

Firstly if you don't like dark reads don't read this book. Amo is the Queen of darkness so her name alone should be enough of a warning, which if you've read her books before you'll know this. But in this book she also has a trigger warning at the beginning, which basically told me that this one was going to be even darker then normal.

I honestly get so excited when I know a new book is due, and with everything going on in the world at the minute I've been desperate for a book that I can totally immerse myself in. I literally read this none stop, I couldn't put it down yet I didn't want to finish it. Pact full of twists and turns and mind blowing suspense it really was an addicted read. The main characters Jade and Royce were addictive in themselves. I just had to keep reading their story and see what f***ed up thing happened next. Its really hard to give much more of a review without giving away massive spoilers, but you don't need to know anything else but what the blurb tells you.

Deliciously dark this book played right into my dark side. I can't wait for the next book from this amazingly talented author and I really hope in the future we get a book for Wicked.

About the Author: Amo Jones is a USA Today & Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, totally winging this author thing (she's probably doing it all wrong). She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic (Slytherin). She's a profound work-a-holic, but when she's not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & Husband at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand. New Zealand is not a state of Australia and rugby is the best sport ever played.
