Rosa's rating: 5 of 5 iScream Cones

"I had no heart or soul to give her—I'd already sworn it to the families. Besides, what use did I have for fairytales?"

What a brilliant idea the 1001 Dark Nights is. I really appreciate the opportunity to dip my toe in the water to see if I will like a series by trying it out with one of these shorter stories that can be read as a standalone and an introduction to a series. And I must say, I more than liked it.

Renee is working as a nanny for the summer for the families. She just biding her time, waiting to go to college in the fall. Being around the mafia men is stressful for her. They frighten her with their fierceness and she knows not to cross them. And then there's Vic. She feels his eyes on her... all the time.

Vic knows she's off-limits, but he can't help himself. His favorite thing to do on and off duty is to watch the nanny. Sometimes, he's ordered to keep an eye on her, and other times he's unable to take his eyes off the nanny. "It hurt like hell knowing that a woman like that would never look twice at a man like me."

Renee would be graduating from college this year. And then her future would begin. She's been anxious to get away from the tight control of the families, ready to stretch her wings. But she can't deny that she's drawn to him. She should be focused on the rest of her life, but instead, she's focused on him. She knows what he does. But she still wants him, darkness and all. "Though if any sin was worth committing—it would be him."

Yup, you guessed it. It was H-O-T. The forbidden, hopeless, uncontainable lust they had for each other was seeping out of their pores. Vic felt helpless with envy as he protected her, knowing that she was promised to someone else. The author managed to pack a punch in this story and now she has my appetite whetted for more in the Eagle Elite series. I really want to get to know some of the characters I met better, especially Andrei. The line forms here...
