RULES of BENNETT
Here kitty, kitty, kitty….
You can run, but you can’t hide.
Before you were born, your father traded your life to secure his.
He thought hiding you in another state under a new alias would save you from your awaiting fate, but I always get what’s mine.
And it’s time to cash in.
While your father paid in blood, you’ll pay with your life; and now you belong to me.
My rules are simple.
You will bow.
You will break.
You will obey.
Follow them, and you’ll survive.
And if you don’t?
I will break you in ways that’ll make you wish you were dead.
I am Bennett Moreno, devil in the flesh.
Welcome to Hell.
Rules of Bennett is the prequel to the Rules of Bennett trilogy.
After years of hiding, I though I’d escaped him; but you can’t hide when you belong to the Devil.
Taking away everything that I loved, he thought I’d be his perfect, broken little doll.
Little does he know, I’m not one to bend so easily.
Following his three rules is the key to my salvation, but all rules are meant to be broken—even if breaking them would lead to my death.
When a business meeting takes a tragically unexpected turn, Bennett’s armor finally cracks, revealing his weakness.
He may think he’s the devil, but the devil can be destroyed too.
With vengeance in my heart, I’ll make him pay for what he’s done.
In the end only one of us will bow.
And I bow to no man.
The ultimate sins must be paid for in blood and it’s time to paint the town red.
When betrayals are unearthed and tragedy strikes my solid foundation, secrets are brought to light and one fact becomes clear—Wilson Moreno must die.
But taking down the man who made me won’t be easy.
For years I sat undetected, doing his dirty work while quickly becoming the perfect threat to take him down.
And now it’s time to take back what’s always been mine.
There’s only room in Hell for one devil and I have no plans of giving up my throne.
And I’m prepared to break any soul that thinks they can take it.
He made me bow.
He made me break.
Now we’ve reached the final showdown.
The gates of Hell are crumbling as two monsters fight for the throne. Their prize?
My soul—or so they think.
I’ve played Bennett’s game for too long and in exchange for what I want, he requires me to follow the third rule.
And what I want is Wilson Moreno dead by my hand.
Bennett says you can’t win playing games against the devil, but he’s made me into a bigger monster than he is. When I win against him, I’ll have some rules of my own.
He will bow.
He will break.
He will be destroyed.
It was supposed to be the start of a new beginning.
With our enemies slain, I was prepared to look to future ahead of us.
Building La Fedeltá to be one of the most powerful families on the West coast.
Planning a wedding.
Being a family man and growing my family with my wife.
But with all things, no one prepared me for the growing pains that came with building a mafia family from scratch.
The hard work required to maintain a happy marriage or balance parenthood.
I definitely wasn't prepared when my past mistakes came back to try to destroy everything and everyone I held dear.
With the Korolevstvo bratva threatening the survival of both my organization and my family, I had to unleash the very being I promised Aurora I'd bury—Moreno the devil himself.
I'd experienced too much loss, and I refused to have Alec and his men rip away the last piece of my heart.
I'd give him the war he wanted, and I wouldn't let up until every single one of them paid the price in the only currency the devil accepts.
