The mafia family's have created their own soldiers to take over their dynasty. The offspring have come into their own and they are ready to rule. Sexy, calculating and driven. This group is ready for a new beginning. Forget the sins of their fathers, that is no longer their cross to bear. They want to rule their own way.
Serena was born and raised to be a mafia princess. As Nixon's oldest, she could be nothing less than ruthless. She gets the job done without emotion. She knows her future is set. She'll lead the next generation of Eagle Elite wearing stilettos.
Junior is weighed down by the sins of his father. Being the son of Phoenix is a heavy burden to carry. Junior will have to prove himself and make his own path, to gain respect and move the new generation forward.
The kids have one major rule. No dating within their family's. Break the rule and you die a painful death.
Serena and Junior crossed that line years ago. It was never just physical for them. They shared a soul searing love. But they knew it would mean the end. So their love turned to hate, to protect them from their fathers.
The line between love and hate is obliterated when one of their own faces a tragic loss. Serena and Junior are no longer willing to hide their love. Loving one another will mean losing everything.
I was so happy to hear that RVD was going to give us more of our favorite mafia family's. She delivers the sizzle that we have come to expect, along with characters you will quickly come to love. Both the OG and the new will leave you coming back for more. The story is not short on drama, heartache or bloodshed. Revisiting my old favorites and meeting my new ones was better than expected. Once again, the author has created a family that will keep me coming back for more.
This book was freaking EVERYTHING to me. Hands down, one of my TOP 3 reads of this year!! Rachel Van Dyken is brilliant and amazing and knows how to suck you into this amazing mafia world!!
I am a HUGE FAN of Eagle Elite! Like HUGE! And this book continues the legacy they left behind. Holy cow! These kids are making a name for themselves and won’t take any crap from anyone!! The blood in - no out continues and is stronger than ever.
I think I would shout at the rooftops about this book if possible. It’s theme is dark, mafia and absolutely steamy. It is not for the faint of heart, but these men and women will grow on you and become part of you. They are ruthless, loving, and know what the true meaning of FAMILY is!! You DON’T want to miss the start of this series, or the continuation of the Eagle Elite generation.
Junior and Serena have been doomed since birth. They are the best of friends, but they have very hard boundaries. There are rules. There are guns. There are threats. It’s the mafia y’all!! Their world is full of secrets and deception. Responsibility means everything to them and they have to step up to take over. With this responsibility comes rules, lies, fighting, killing and tragedy. This story is so hard, so real and raw you won’t be able to put it down.
Enjoy seeing the characters from her Eagle Elite series and be prepared to laugh your butt off, listen to crazy, funny banter, and see the darkness that is involved in this amazing world of The Mafia Royals.
GO AND BUY THIS BOOK NOW! Seriously!!
But when I saw this cover (God, just look at how stunning that is! 😍) and all the rave reviews I got really excited and decided to give this book a try. What if the old Rachel was back???
But, unfortunately, she’s still pretty much the same. But to be fair, this book can be a good read for teens, her writing certainly matches their maturity. As for me I can say this book cements my decision about not reading any of her books anymore, no matter how stunning the cover is or how many 5 stars is out there... Rachel Van Dyken is no longer for me!!

Mafia Royals Romance series
@# Rachel Van Dyken
Serena & Junior
There's no need to read the Eagle Elite series. This is a new standalone Mafia series. There's a who's who intro if you're new to Rachel Van Dyken. But for the EE nerds who have been there from the start, you could call it a recap or the next generation.
Blood In.No Out.
Let's get Ruthless....
Serena Abandonato is her Fathers (Nixon Abandonato) pride and joy. She's heir to the Abandonato throne. She's got an older adopted brother (he'll step up if he has to) and a younger sister. She's as good as any man. A Ruthless Princess. She can't help feeling what she does for Junior.
Junior Nicolasi, the only child, Son of Phoenix Nicolasi (formerly De Lange) heir to the Nicolasi crime family. Made man at a young age. Same age as Serena. She's always on his mind.
The bosses number one rule for the kids is no dating. It complicates things. They should know. But they're willing to risk it, even though there's a blood oath in place.
They're part of the top five mafia families in the Cosa Nostra. Mafia Royalty. No pressure.
Best friends, who were sleeping together since they were 16.
Recipe for disaster.
Until something breaks them apart.
It's nonstop hate, fighting while they're broken inside.
They're both badass where it counts.
Now they're of age, targets themselves earlier than planned.
They've got to find out who's responsible.
Sins of the Fathers is upon them.
Can they right a wrong?
It's not their fault they were born into this life.
Can they rise above and come toe to toe with their Fathers, the most terrifying crime bosses in the Famiglia, and win to become their own Elect and earn their respect?
The banter between the kids and the Fathers is great.
The kids really do have each other's backs, for the family.
My heart went out to them all. They've all got pains of the heart.
'Two Twirls' - gets me everytime 😭
Rachel has torn my heart once again.I was one hell of a blubbering hot mess.
Rocky, gritty, angsty, suspence, love hate rollercoaster ride.
I had to stop, like most of Rachel's EE books, half a dozen times to wipe your tears, blow your nose and grab more alcohol to collect your thoughts, until she throws curveballs.
They give as good as each other. Considering who their parents are. The push and pull between them. They truly love each other. Even die for each other.
SCANDALOUS PRINCE is next. Which is Breakers book, the Capo, the GodFather of the family's Son coming 12th Jan 2021
This book was crazy good. It was nice to see the Elite back in action. It was also incredibly hot. Like, damn, Rachel didn't hold back. In fact, it's probably the steamiest book she's written.
I had waited to read the first book until Ruthless Princess was released. So I read them both today.
You could tell that Royal bully was written near the end of Ruthless Princess. As the stories didn't quite match at the beginning. (I also didn't get the title or where Bully came from) if anyone came across as a bully it was Junior and Selena.
I found a few typos in Royal bully, but there was a lot more in Ruthless princess.
I also found bits similar to previous books in what was said, the mantra of I hate you etc. It felt too familiar. In a way, it was nice to see the poetry of sorts passed down.
I wish I could have felt Ashers storyline the way others did. But I just wasn't feeling it. (And this could be a number of reasons) If you're not new to the Elite, then you know Rachel can tear your heart out with a character. However, you could feel his story was building up to more. I just wish I could have felt it the way others did so I could build on that foundation in time for his story. But that's not saying I won't when it's his turn to get another book. (Which I'm seriously looking forward to. If someone cloned Phoenix and Chase into one person, they would get Asher) (Ever saw the TikTok videos where it says: "When my mom met my dad and they had me" perfect example lol
I know it seems I'm nit picking. I'm not. Because what I think or what I felt, is completely different to what another will feel. She still is and will always be, one of the best authors I know. And not because she is one of the most kindest people I've ever known, but because has so much talent.
That said, I'm in love with the new characters. I already felt like I could put a face to a name. I love how she can bring her characters to life.
I loved how she still kept the parents and bosses in it all.
I'm also excited to see where the bigger plot that I'm hoping links all the books, will go.
She knows how to throw in twist and turns and keep the action going.
I for one, am excited to see where the rest will go. If its anywhere close to how Selena's and Juniors story went, we are in for a storm.
I love the Ruthless of this book from beginning to end and some. I have pictured every thing that has been going on like a film in my head.
Rachel has opened the world for the godfathers and fathers of mafias to extend their blood line. But tbh is that a good thing?? Within the mafia there is always going to be hurt, distrust, anger and DEATH. There will be enemies who come out of the woodwork to end the blood of the Family. But will they be able to defend the family and step up and do what they need to do and end all of the rats and rodents that need to killed before they ruin their lives as they know it.
Serena Abandonato is the Queen, she is stepping forth and being the Ruthless Person she is, won’t take shit from anyone - well unless your name is Junior. Then not only will he not bow down to her level or be on bended knee, he will take her on and more. Her father Nixion never took shit from anyone, she has learnt from the best.
Because the family took an oath, no dating is allowed amongst the mafia or you die. But that won’t stop for these two, they take danger on and more.
Junior Nicolasi is the king, he is stepping up to take on what the family need him to do, he will prove to everyone and anyone that de Lange’s blood runs through him but it won’t control him at all, he isn’t the monster that everyone is waiting for him to be. Plus it’s a name that must not be spoken. Phoenix is his dad, he was a de Lange and now he is a nicolasi, the bosses saved him. He now knows everything, before you even do. So he knows what is going on within the family, but he can’t say anything.
Together Serena and Junior Rule the Eagle Elite university just like their families before them did. They will rule the university and behead anyone who double crosses them together with their family behind or by their sides.
Blood In No Out!!
This book is a standalone new series however to fully know the history that is referred to I would recommend reading the Eagle Elite series first.
Rachel Van Dyken never disappoints in her writing! She is definitely a one click author for me.
