“There’s this rule in chess.
If a pawn gets to the other side of the board, he can be anything he wants…once it hits other other side, it can be any piece.
A knight. A rook. A bishop. Anything…
All I wanted was to save one pawn.
To get him to the other side so he could be something different…”
Well fucking A, I’ll be your pawn, Kele Moon.
This book was so much different from what I expected it to be.
It took me places I wasn’t expecting to go.
Because it took us through places I didn’t expect Tino to have been taken.
And I’ve got to be honest, a part of me did NOT love those places.
Because those places didn’t fit the mold of the Valentino I had in my head.
But by the end?
My pawn ass was doing this^^^ shit right the fuck across the chessboard.
This books starts up pretty much right where The Slayer left us.
And then it takes you back to the origins of the Moretti brothers.
What happened to Romeo.
What happened to Nova.
What happened to Tino.
And what they did to protect each other.
If you liked loved The Slayer, you will love this one even more.
Yes, it’s book one in a two book Tino series.
Yes, it ends leaving you on a cliffhanger.
But fear not homies, it’s not the slit your wrists kind of cliffhanger.
So excited to start book one of Tino’s two book story!
I’m so fucking excited I might actually vomit.
