eArc received for honest review


From #1 New York Times Bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken comes the third book in the bestselling Eagle Elite Series... 

“As burns this saint, so burns my soul. I enter alive, and I will have to get out dead.” 

Chase Winter let the love of his life slip through his fingers and into the hands of his best friend and mafia boss of the Abandanato family. Now that he's been given a second chance to right a wrong--he refuses to let his own selfishness stand in the way. The only problem? He's not fully in possession of his heart, so when Mil De Lange, the girl who's innocence he stole, and heir to the worst of the worst mafia families in the US, asks him for a favor. He actually says yes, not realizing that that one yes has the power to destroy them all. 

Mil's been in love with Chase as long as she can remember, but as the years went by, the love turned to hate, and now that he's agreed to help her, she's wondering if she made a fatal error. Because Chase isn't a teenager anymore. He's a hot blooded male, bent on owning every part of her body and soul, and willing to kill anyone in his path who dares stand in the way. 

It's time for secrets to finally be revealed...but make no mistake, it's going to take a lot of bloodshed for those truths to be discovered. 

You've never read a New Adult Mafia story like this before...loyalties will be tested, lovers reunited, and friendships obliterated. Welcome to the Family. Blood in--No out.

By the time I got back to the room, Chase was in the bathroom. The shower was running, and I could have sworn I heard him singing some sort of Frank Sinatra song, but it’s entirely possible I made it up. Trace hadn’t been the only one drinking wine. 

With a flourish I fell across the bed and let out a huge sigh — the type of sigh a girl lets out when she’s trying to let the person next to her know that something’s not right. 

Lucky me. All I had was a wall. 

Right, so I was sighing at a damn wall. 

I sighed again. 

Well, no time like the present. I wasn’t sure which side of Chase I was going to get tonight. The hot-as-hell arrogant asshole, who made me want to slap him almost as much as I wanted to kiss him? Or the funny, easy-going, hormonal teenager, who had left earlier this evening after staring at my boobs like he was twelve? 

I smirked at the thought. Me and my sigh would take either one. The water turned off in the bathroom. The door swung open. I glanced and almost fell off the bed. 

Chase naked. 

Chase. Was. Naked. 

Clearly he wasn’t aware that I was in the room. He didn’t turn, just ran the fluffy white towel around his dripping body. Licking my lips, I felt my pulse jump as he wiped a few droplets that streamed down his face. Damn, I wanted to run my tongue along the trails the water created. My breathing picked up — and I swore under my breath as that same towel ran down his ridiculously tight abs. I was completely wrecked, my body strung so tight I was afraid to keep breathing — afraid that it was too loud — and I didn’t want the show to end.

“How were the girls?” Chase asked without turning around. 

Aw, crap. Embarrassed, I cleared my throat and scolded my eyes for continuing to remain on his muscled body. Just one more look, I promised myself, and then I’d be fine. 

“Good.” I continued my bold stare. His ass was fine. Seriously. Fine. 

“You get some wine and food?” he asked, wrapping the towel around his waist. Bummer. 

“Yup,” I squeaked, my voice sounding all kinds of immature. 

“So,” he padded over to the bed and sat, “dinner and a show, huh?” 

“I, uh—” Laughing, I scooted away from him toward the pillows. “I was going to say something, but—” 

“Cut the shit, Mil.” Chase smirked. “You were ogling.” 

“Girls don’t ogle.” 

“Oh?” That gorgeously perfect idiotic face mocked me with every ounce of hotness. Damn Chase Winter. Damn beautiful man. God should have at least taken pity on the female race and made him short or fat or anything but what I was staring at. A muscled god with dark skin, bright green eyes, and a smile that made a girl immediately want to do anything she could to trap him into marriage. 

“What’cha thinking about?” He smirked again. 


Absolutely Spectacular!!!!

The first book I have ever read by Rachel Van Dyken was Elite, which is book one in the Eagle Elite Series. I knew from the moment that I opened that book that I was going to be a huge fan of hers! I have devoured every book in the Eagle Elite Series and in her Ruin Series. I wish we could work two days out of seven instead of five, so I could have time to read all the other books that she has written ... lol!

I have been a big fan of Chase since book one and I was extremely happy to see him get his own book. Mil also captivated me with her confidence and determination. These two are made for each other! Their chemistry is blazing hot! You can really feel Chase's love for Mil. He would die for her. He lives and breathes for her. Mil has always been in love with Chase. He was her first love and the one she can't forget. She comes back into Chase's life when he has hit rock bottom. His heart is broken and a future with the woman he loves has slipped away. When Mil becomes the boss of the De Lange clan, she  asks Chase for his help. They have a love/hate relationship that soon turns into an unforgettable love story. When her secrets are revealed, Mil and Chase unite with their friends to bring down the one person who could end it all. 

Oh, my squeeeeee!!! This book was absolutely PHENOMENAL!!!! A fantastic third installment that kept me awake way past my bedtime! Mil, Chase, Trace, Nixon, Mo and Tex have made this reading escape a memorable one! I love all of these characters! I fell in love with each and every one of them and I wish this series would never end! I loved the multiple POV's. It's amazing to read a book from different perspectives. My heart was beating fast, I was laughing, I was screaming, I was trying to solve the mystery that was hiding between the families.  I was shocked when the secrets slowly started to get revealed. Everything from the past books was beginning to make sense and it was well intertwined into this story. They are not joking when they say Blood in-No out :/

This journey was action-packed, intense and electrifying! Secrets, mystery, suspense, betrayals, lies, passion, romance ... God! This book had it all! When I finished reading Entice I was left at the edge of my seat with the sneak peek that we got from Elicit. It left me like this...

Eeeeeeep!!!! Elicit is going to be AMAZING!!!! 


I give, Entice, by Rachel Van Dyken 5 all-consuming, intriguing, passionate, intense, unputtable-down stars! If you have yet to discover this series or Rachel Van Dyken's amazing talent ... What in the world are you waiting for??? Her books are brilliant!
