{{BLOG TOUR & REVIEW}} EMBER By Rachel Van Dyken

RELEASE DATE: FEB 19
I am a Killer. A Rapist. A Monster.
I know only pain and survival.
That is until the Cappo's sister walked into my life.
And changed everything.
She's a light who makes my darkness darker, her smile makes my heart turn to ice, and I can't escape the fear her seductive looks instill--knowing it's only a matter of time before I fail--again, and take her for myself.
This is the story of my redemption.
But it's not pretty...I died, and now I'm alive, but not living, breathing but not surviving. I am Phoenix De Lange, son to a murdered mob boss, estranged brother, horrible friend, monster in the making, newest leader to one of the most powerful families in the Cosa Nostra.
And I will have my vengeance.
Or die trying.
I am Phoenix De Lange.
Death is all I know.
Until she offers me a piece of life--I can't resist taking.



Ember by Rachel Van Dyken
Wow, Phoenix is back and I think I might be in love with him!
This is the story of Phoenix De Lange - Rapist, murderer all round bad guy who we all hated for his treatment of the lovely Trace in book one and Bianka (Bee) Campisi. Two lost and broken souls who have to learn to trust all over again.
Phoenix is sent back to school to protect Bee the sister of the newly appointed Cappo, Bee who has never had a normal life.
Phoenix is supposed to keep her safe and not touch her but how will he cope when Bee pushes him to his limits all the time?
 Will he be able to resist even if touching her means certain death at the hands of her brother? 
Will Bee still want him when she finds out the extent of his crimes especially against women? And can he overcome his fears that he will end up hurting her?
These two are the complete antithesis of each other he is dark, brooding and dangerous and she is light, laughter and fun. You know you really shouldn’t be rooting for them to fall in love and have a happy ever after but you can’t help it.
Rachel Van Dyken is one of my automatic one click authors and this book is one of the reason’s why. It's a testament to Ms Van Dyken’s writing skills that she has made me fall in love with a villain who I absolutely loathed in all the other books and I really wanted him to get his comeuppance, who would have thought that by the end I’d be cheering him on and praying he found peace.
This book is proof that true love really can conquer all if you're brave enough to take a chance.

I wasn’t sure how to act. Wasn’t sure if I should apologize for attacking him or thank him for not laughing in my face. Embarrassed and irritated that he was most likely going to ignore whatever it was between us even if it killed him, I stared hard at the cement floor.
“How are you feeling, little girl?”
“I’m not little.”
“You want me to call you fat?”
“No.” I lifted my head. “Call me gorgeous like you did last night.”
“Well, shit.” Phoenix ran his hands over his face then grabbed my arm and dragged me down the hall into a darkened corner. “You remember?”
“You kissed me.”
“Prove it.”
“What’s wrong with you?” I pushed against his chest. “You like me! Admit it!”
Phoenix made a face. “You were drunk, launched yourself at me, and I caught you. Did we kiss?” His eyes went completely black. “Yeah, we did, but it meant nothing.”
“Really?”
“Really.” He hissed out a breath through his teeth.
“Prove it.”
“What?”
I pushed him against the wall. “Prove it meant nothing. Let me kiss you now, and if it meant nothing it will be like… what? Kissing your sister.”
“I’ve sworn off women.”
“So this should be an easy test then, right?”
“Bee…” Phoenix’s face was pained, as if I was holding a gun to his head rather than offering to kiss him. Was the idea so abhorrent? “Please…” His voice had a pleading tone I’d never heard before. “Don’t do this.”
“One. Little. Test.” I rose up on my tip toes and kissed him full on the mouth.
His lips refused to move against mine.
I wrapped my arms around his neck.
He stiffened even more.
Irritated, I bit his lower lip. He gasped, and I slid my tongue inside his mouth. He pushed me away with a curse then wiped his lips. “Done. Your little test is done. I didn’t respond. Happy now?”
His eyes were furious; the blue flashed like lightning against his skin. His fingertips shook as he made a fist.
“You like me.”
“Bee…” Phoenix pinched the bridge of his nose with his fingertips. “…find someone your own age, someone who’s interested in you in the way you deserve, alright?” His tone was gentle, and maybe that was what hurt the most.
It was like he was letting me down slowly, hoping I didn’t break.
But the joke was on him.
Because I was already broken.
I didn’t want boys my age — I wanted him.
“You’re a good liar.” My eyes narrowed. “And you’re lucky I’m patient.”
“Lucky?” He sputtered out a laugh. “That you like toying with me?”
“No, lucky that even though you constantly push me away…I keep coming back for more. But, Phoenix… everyone’s time eventually runs out.”
“Go to breakfast, Bee.”
“Go to hell, Phoenix.”
