He was the Golden Boy until she tarnished him…
I woke up to my roommate and best friend missing. In her place was a note on my bedside table that read: You can only find me with your eyes closed.
No one thinks a note like that is meant for them.
I knew it was meant for me, a clue, a way to seek Justice.
Whoever left me that note was hoping I didn’t let my parent’s legacy die when they did. They wanted to see what kind of warfare I was capable of.
Justice before starting a war with the man who wrote the rule book…
I woke up every day to the same nonsensical bullshit that was my life.
They say only bad things only happen after dark but I was the exception to every rule. I was bad and I happened whenever I wanted.
I wanted someone to challenge me, put me in my place, force me to be better than war strategies and hold the audacity to traipse across enemy lines.
A pink haired receptionist wasn’t my first choice for shaking my resolve.
I can still smell her but I wanted to know if she’d taste like Victory.
Death before dishonor meant not losing to her…

Answering the phone, I held onto my breath, when I heard an older woman’s voice come through. “So, you’re the guy responsible for her bad attitude.”
A nervous laugh erupted from me. I had never dated anyone long enough to give them the idea that I would want to speak to anyone important to them.
Besides her.
“I’m so glad you called me back…” The Clave mask slipped back into place, polishing all my stained edges in the hopes of impressing her.
“Didn’t give me much of a choice, since you’ve been calling me every day. Is there something I can help you with?” Her voice showed her age, but her mouth was a family heirloom passed down to Justice.
“I love Justice very much. I wanted to express this to you and prove that I deserve her hand in marriage.”
Laughter poured in from the other end of the phone. “You don’t take no for an answer, do you? If she wanted to marry you, I don’t think she would have evacuated LA like a natural disaster was headed her way.”
“Respectfully, no. I don’t lose gracefully.”
“Go on. I’m gonna need to hear you express those feelings,” she said, but not with an iron fist. Her voice sounded tired and worried for Justice.
“Okay… I’m not a great person, but I’m a better person because of her. I want to be good enough to deserve her.”
“Oh, honey, she wasn’t always a good person either and don’t you let her forget it. Wicked girls like her can’t forget to be humble…”
The Test (The 4 Horsemen #2)The Test by Elena Monroe
Tanya Rae’s rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Test is the second book in The 4 Horsemen Series. This time it is Victory “Vic” Rockefeller’s turn. Justice “Jus” was in book one and she is Abigail’s (book one) best friend and was her roommate.

Jus lives up to her name and she lives by her own rules. She is out for Justice. I didn’t like Vic so much in The Initiation. He was very much an @**h0le. Thank goodness I felt like he redeemed himself in The Test!

I love books that you feel you can’t put down and The Test was one of those books! I am looking forward to reading more in the 4 Horseman series. So far we have dealt with Death and this book is War. We still have to cover Chaos and Famine. Khaos story is next in The Sacrifice.

Bettina A’s Review: 3.5 Stars

Victory a.k.a Vic has to win at everything. With a father who constantly reminds him that he’s a failure Vic doesn’t know how to lose. Justice a.k. Jus lost her parents at a young age and vowed to herself that she would be the justice that her parents were seeking. Jus does not fit in at Clave with her pink hair, over the top outfits and converse but that’s how she likes it. Purposely giving the Clave the proverbial middle finger. When Jus’ best friend goes missing she takes it upon herself to find out what happened to her and that means confronting the men who run Clave. Vic is a horseman with many masks to fit whatever role he has to play. After deciding that he will not lose to Jus little by little his masks all start to crack. Jus does not give up and Vic does not lose, and this makes each one an ultimate opponent. Will Vic finally learn what it is like to lose or will Jus learn that everyone doesn’t receive justice for their actions?

This book was a little better. It look me less time to read than the first book. I was able to understand the characters a little better. I enjoyed the banter between Vic and Jus. There was still a lot of repeating in the beginning but that stopped. I did enjoy the unexpected twists in the book. It kept things more interesting. This booked lived up to its quote, “Everything seems real until you shake the truth from it”. So many truths were shaken from the Horseman and the Clave. I would recommend this book to others. Honestly, I really want Bo’s story because his seems a lot darker and twisted than the rest.

Elena Monroe grew up in Florida scribbling down stories from a very young age. These stories were really just wavy lines filling the paper, but she knew each word, each emotion, each character’s name, and there was no tricking her into forgetting what each line signified. Just like her unconventional way of writing as a toddler Elena is setting her own rules and just telling stories. 
Much like her debut novel, The Best Years, life certainly imitated art. Transplanting from the South to the East Coast, Elena currently lives in Connecticut with husband, reformed bad boy.
