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.


Thoughts:
Bang Bang is no less then what I have come to expect from the awesomeness that is Rachel Van Dyken! 

Amy is a member of the De Lange family. A family detested in it's own mafia cirque.  And her father is one of the worst. Always looking for a quick buck and not afraid to take his anger out on his daughter or his wife if he can't find it. Amy's only asylum is in the arms of her best friend and neighbor, Axton. But that all changes one bullet riddled night when she learns that the young man she thought she knew better then anyone turns out to be a member of a revered mafia family...her family's enemy. And he died trying to protect her. Now, five years later, Amy is desperate and abashed at what her future holds when a ghost from the past arrives like a blackened knight. He only wants one thing. Her. But there are others that want something only she has and they're all too willing to risk her life to get it. 

Action, suspense, humor and amour - Bang Bang delivers it all in a fast-paced novella that shouldn't be missed. Fans of the Eagle Elite series, Axton and Amy's story is a must-read. New readers, Bang Bang makes a wonderful novella to dip your toes into Rachel Van Dyken's incredibly compelling mafia world with. Welcome to the family!  All the characters that I have come to love in this series make an appearance and the dialogue between some of these boys had me rolling. I was left wanting more from this dynamic group of characters and I cannot wait for the next installment in the series. Well written but not as steamy as what I have come to expect from these sexy mafia members. All in all though; a terrific novella with new characters that I loved and look forward to seeing more of and a great introduction to the Family for new readers.
