Elect (Eagle Elite, #2) by Rachel Van Dyken, Book Review
Would you die for the one you love?
Nixon Abandonato made his choice. And now he has to pay the price. Tracey is the love of his life, but being with him has made her a target of his family's enemies. The only way to keep Trace alive is convince the world she means nothing to him.
Trace Rooks has fallen irrevocably in love with the son of her family's sworn rival, and she knows in her bones nothing can tear them apart. Until Nix suddenly pushes her away and into the arms of his best friend... But Trace isn't ready to give up on a future with Nix--and if he won't fight for them, she will.
In the end, a sacrifice must be made. A life for a life. For what better way to cover a multitude of sins than with the blood of a sinner . . .
It is no secret that I LOVED Elite by Rachel Van Dyken! Heck, I stand by my word that it is the best book I have read this year! However, Elect gives Elite a run for its money! All of my favorite and not so favorite characters are back! More mafia action, more romance issues, more Chase, Trace and Nixon!!!! Van Dyken takes the series to a new level of suspense as I was on the edge of my proverbial seat for the majority of the book! I was shocked, seriously SHOCKED people, at all of the secrets that unfolded during the book! Heck, I had to re-read certain parts to make sure I was following correctly because it is CRAZY!!! Remember to stay calm because this is the mafia we are dealing with! I have no words for the roller coaster ride of danger and emotional upheaval that I went through! Tissues, you may need tissues! All that I can say is you will really feel for Chase, Nixon and Trace. If you haven't read Elite, then go buy it and buy Elect while you are at it, because these books are my favorite books period! Van Dyken has an amazing ability to write a story that feels so true to real life. You will literally feel the emotions from the characters as they jump through the book at you! If you miss out on this series then you are missing out on an incredible journey! I am now anxiously awaiting book three! Hurry!!!
You can pick up your own copy of Elect via Amazon.
I received an ARC of this book via Netgalley.
