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.
I’d been careless with her heart, and careless with her love and trust. I loved that woman. I would die for her. I breathed for her, lived every day to make sure she was happy and safe.
I was going to give the book a 5 star rating, but I didn't like the chapter before the epilogue. No matter how much I begged Rachel Van Dyken she wouldn't say a word about what is going to happen next in the next book. I need to know who the father is. Like yesterday! Tex and Mo are endgame and I don't like the turn the events took. I ended up feeling depressed instead of happiness as I should have been.
Nixon and Traceys relationship gets to another level. I love them. Mil and Chase were lovely. But there was a problem. I was equally focused on their relationship, Mo and Tex, Nixon and Tracey and I am not sure if that added or took from their story because in the end I was worked up about Tex and Mo. I liked seeing Chase and Mill fall in love with each other. Nixon might be my favorite, but Chase just as loved. Chase needed a girl who would love him with all her heart. I love the mafia family, they have. The girls in the series can kick ass. Is the book coming? I want to know what is going to happen next.
