*I didn't know that night would become my worst nightmare. *
It was my junior year in high school. After two years of being bullied, I was now finally accepted by my peers. I had finally blossomed into a lady and now everyone wanted to become my friend. But... the thing happened.
I will never forget what happened to me that night.
I will never forget that I wasn't given the justice I deserved.
I want revenge. I want them dead...
So do my three lovers. The Underbosses of the Blood Disciples.
I knew Xavier was in love with Joy the moment he met her. However, it didn't stop me or Cristos from falling in love with her too.
"I doubt an empire will come crushing down because we love the same girl," I said. De Luca looked at me, shocked.
"Do you guys steal money from other people?" I asked, completely shocked at his revelation. I knew Cristos was good with computers and encryption, I just didn't know how far it went.
"Sometimes. Sometimes we manipulate, troll, steal incriminating evidence. The usual."
"Our fake ID's...did you make them?" I asked. I was impressed because they looked so real. "Judging from the monitors, it looks like a call center. How could you have the capital? The security to work without even being scared of law enforcement?"
"Sebastian, Xavier and I were born into this kind of life. Since we were little, we were trained to work as a unit just like our fathers. Mama Rose isn't just a simple housewife. She is also part of the organization and sits as a third high ranking official," Cristos explained. "Sebastian, Xavier and I are underbosses of the Blood Disciples, the ruling party of the West Coast Mafia. Our fathers are the bosses while our mothers and sisters are consiglieres. We are in training to become the bosses once our fathers retire. Sebastian is in charge of merchandise, ports, and businesses while Xavier handles the trash. I, on the other hand, am in charge of the virtual world. Anything digital goes through me."
After leaving her small town, Joy Taylor gets a second chance at life and love when she crosses paths with three handsome young men in college.
Now, she's happy, prosperous, and in love with three beautiful men who think the world of her. It seems there's nothing else she could ask for. Her life felt complete.
However, she could never let go of the pain of her past. Especially when she discovers the four boys, who raped her during their junior year in high school, have done it again. This time, the young girl wasn't so lucky. Her body was found floating in a lake near town.
Now, Joy is back in New Salem, seeking her revenge.
Ten years may have gone by, but revenge has no expiry date.
Unfortunately for Joy, things are not always what they seem.
TW: The story contains graphic references to sexual assault and violence.
(The prologue was written by the third POV; the following chapters by the first POV.)

    #bingeread This story is so well written. Her new family gave her a great name. This town won’t know what’s coming until it hits. Those boys are going to find out they messed with the wrong TAYLOR.

    Not my usual type of reading but gave it a try and am highly enjoying it! The characters, details, plot, twists (think the revenge will be too) are great! It is heartbreaking what V has gone through but she's a survivor, strong determined woman! Not wanting this to end yet but how many more chs do you think?

    I am awaiting each update, hanging on as Joy gets closer and closer to her ultimate goal of extracting vengeance. I can feel Joy's anger simmering as I read. Excellent work!

    1m3n alright! this seems quite interesting. yeah, besides the fact that men are usually the issue in society 🤦🏻‍♀️ I like revenge, a strong female character and men enough sure of themselves and their relationship to not be jealous and to prioritise her needs (including revenge)

    1m3n - Wow, some men or boys are just cruel. To rape an inocent soul it is unimaginable. They distroyed her entire life. Hope she finds/gets revenge on those who ruined her. Hope Noah is not one of those who raped her.
