Serena Abandonato and Junior Nicolasi were best friends for life until …. they weren’t. Now they are struggling to find their way back to some sort of peace so they can lead their generation of the Elite. Will they be able to work together or will their group need a new leader?
I was so excited that this author continued the Elite series because OMG I used to love it when I was first getting into reading ebooks and romance novels. Those books have such a very special place in my heart and to read about their kids made me feel happy, but it made me just a little bit old…. Haha!
The dark and dangerous world continues in this new generation of badass men and women struggling to find their life in college and in the gang they have been born into. I was so happy that the characters are college age because it allowed them to be a little more mature and their hard lives were just a little bit more realistic. These baby gangsters were just so bloodthirsty and fierce on the outside, but so vulnerable and squishy on the inside. I just LOVED IT! They were just so fierce when it concerned each other and it was honestly so heartwarming.
UGH this storyline broke my heart and would reattach it again. It made me laugh and it made me cry. IT WAS JUST SO COOL Y’ALL! These poor babies have such twisted and hard lives that it just hurts my soul. I also thought that their parents just set them up for a harder life with their stupid rules, but it definitely helped with the drama of the plot. UGHHH it took forbidden romance to a whole new level and twisted my soul just a little bit.
These characters were just so loveable and I either wanted to hug them or make out with them. Soo Serena is a badass and for sure on my list of girlfriends. She was such a strong and loveable character that any girl would love to look up to, I mean minus the part where she is willing to murder people…. Murder is wrong guys! I also was just fascinated with her thought process and her point of view. I really wish we had been able to see her as a younger girl because I’m curious if she was always this way or if she grew into this fierce queen.
I also was SOOOOOO obsessed with Junior. Omg he was delicious and obsessive and possessive and girlllllll I need some of that in my life. I absolutely loved reading his point of view because the way he thought about Serena was just a flood to my basement in the best way. He has been added to my ever growing and lonnnnnnng list of book boyfriends. He of course is on the top end of the list because DAMN this boy was finnnnnnne and superrrrrrrrr bad boy!
Serena and Junior had such a steamy, angry, thrilling, and tragic love story that kept my eyes super glued to those pages, cats and kittens! Ugh this book was so badass and thrilling and I can’t wait for more of the series!!!!
