BANG BANG

BANG BANG                                               RACHEL VAN DYKEN

He was my best friend.
Until he became my enemy.
All within the span of one night.
Bang, Bang, Bang, Bang.
The rapid fire of gunshots became the soundtrack to my life.
This is the Mafia. Lines are blurred. Choices are never black and white. And the life you thought you knew is... one giant lie.
He was dead.
And I didn't want his life to be in vain, so I tried to make something of myself. I tried and failed.
Now he's back. Alive. And he wants something...
Me.
Nobody ever said the mafia played fair.
Welcome to The Family.

MY REVIEW:
  This is the story of Amy De Lange and Axton Abandonto, part of the Eagle Elite Series.  They are from two opposing mafia families.  Yet, somehow they had managed to keep their friendship separate.  Her father is a cruel man who would beat her and her mother for his failings of wanting to be a Made Man in the organization.  To escape she would end up next door at Ax’s bedroom window.
     On this fated night she was sleeping over because her dad was on a tear.  They went through their routine of Ax saying she should move already so he could keep her safe.  Ames, says no how would that look to the mafia families?  Ax saying no father no matter what has a right to put hands on his daughter.  That even him a worthless mechanic knows better and she should be around better than him.  She tells him that No one who loves, protects, and cares for her the way that Ax did could be better.
     Then they changed for bed.  They were no sooner getting into their REM sleep when bullets start flying.  She hears Ax say in her ear to keep quiet, stay down, and don’t move yet.  She realizes that he is covering her with his body.  He reaches into his nightstand and pulls out something.  When it catches the outside light she sees it’s a gun.  She starts to speak he covers her mouth.  When his bedroom door flies open and it’s his brother Sergio.  Telling Ax “Our covers been blown.  They know we’ve been watching them.  Get ready we got to go!”
     Bullets still flying, he gets out of bed, starts getting dress tells her to do the same but stay low.  Sergio comes back in says, “We got to go now!”  Ax says, “She’s going with us.” Sergio says, “No!  She’s the enemy!”  Ax says, “She’s not he beats her.  If she doesn’t go then I stay too!”  When his door flies open again and Sergio grabs Ames from Ax with Ax yelling, “Take her protect her.”  Shots ring out he’s hit but he gets this person.  She and Sergio go out the window.  He tells her let’s go she says no we need to wait for Ax.  He says, “No he’s more than likely dead if not he will be.  You did this.  You killed him.”  Five years later…

     Nope not going there!  Started this to just see what it was about really because it’s an author I enjoy and it was free on Amazon.  Damn I couldn’t put it down especially since I found out it was an extension of a series I had read part of.  Which I loved.  This was a non-stop fast pace story.  About the new American Mafia but done with a bit of humor.  Along with the heartache.  I give this 4 stars.
