Summary

They say the devil goes by many names, and I know four of them: Ciro, Hale, Zaid, and Lucas. My father was once a powerful player in the Chicago underground, but six years ago, he left that life behind.

We changed our names. Our identities. Our lives.

The ghosts of the past never forgot him though. They never forgot me.

Dad promised me we were safe, but I should’ve known that was just another one of his lies.

The past always finds you, and mine finds me on my wedding day when four brutal, dangerous men drag me from the altar in a hail of gunfire.

Four men who used to be four boys. Four boys I cared about. Four boys I left behind.

They’re not the same boys I knew though, and whatever we may have once been to each other, it doesn’t matter anymore.

Because they’re only one thing to me now: My captors.

Vicious Kings is book one of The Dark Elite series. This is a reverse harem new adult dark romance series that includes high steam, violence, and foul language.

The attraction makes no sense.

First of the narration is great, however the attraction between them is not explained and really makes no sense. The female MC just lost her father at her wedding and she has no idea if her fiance is even alive or who to blame for it. It could very possibly be her captors who are responsible... Still a mere touch from her captors/old childhood friends and she is horny and willing to let them do whatever to her... Sorry, but this is very uncreative writing...

Great Story

I really liked this book. story was really strong with plenty of angst, plot twists, betrayal and steamy chemistry. characters all have their own seperate flaws and demons which makes the book so much more enjoyable. real gritty action. the narration on this book was good especially the female character. loved this gave it 5 stars for all. will be getting the next book in the series definitely

Where's part 2?????

I like the way the book is written and narrated.

The story is good but leaves you hanging. Now the wait begins for part 2.

She gets kidnapped by the four men she knew from her past and they hold her hostage. They tie her up to the bed for days. Wow! That sucks. My arms began hurting too!

We don't really know what's going on until near the end and then... where's part 2??

It is a good story but you will have to wait for the ending.

Awesome start to another amazin series I cabt wait

I have both read and listened to this book and loved it both ways. Eva is an amazing author and has grabbed my attention from the very first book I've read of hers. Now I just at every book she writes because I know it will be so worth reading. This was definitely another great start to what I'm sure is going to be an amazing series.
When the past comes back for you will you be ready. That's what happens in this start of a new series when Grace is about to marry the man of her dreams her past shows up. But she quickly sees that her once 4 best friends are not the same people they were. Grace don't know who to trust and there are so many secrets and much darkness to this story. It definitely kept me turning pages wanting to know what happens next. I absolutely love Eva's way of capturing you in her stories there hasn't been any I haven't completely loved. This one is no different and I can't wait to read the next book in this series. If you like darm sexy mafia stories you don't want to miss this one it's amazing.

SexyMafiaMen ReverseHarem BullyRomance

This first book was full of all the yummies we crave;
Reverse Harem
Bully
Mafiosi Bad Boys
Smexy times
And the sinister as of yet unknown bad pulling the strings. Interesting turn or twist in plot at end, not totally unpredictable but worked none the less.
I enjoyed this book and am purchasing second now, as this first book left me wanting more in a good way❤️😘❌⭕️🔥🔥🔥🔥

Loved it!

I did not expect to like this book as much as I did. It is a little short so things happen fast, sometimes seeming unbelievable at times. With the sexy times they are HOT. A little quick but definitely steamy!
