Elicit (Eagle Elite #4) by Rachel Van Dyken, Book Review
Cursed, numb, rejected, scorned, wicked, sinister, dark, twisted...my name is Tex Campisi and this is my legacy. I killed my father in cold blood and lost my soul right along with him.
I crave war more than peace, and I'm about to take my place in history as the youngest Capo dei Capi in the Cosa Nostra...that is until someone stops me, saves me from myself.
But the only person able to do that...is my best friends sister, Mo Abandanato, and she just ripped my heart out and asked me to hold it in my hands while she put bullets through it.
Im cursed so I did it.
I'm numb so I held it.
I'm wicked so I liked it.
I used the pain Mo caused as a catalyst to turn into my biggest nightmare--the five families greatest enemy. It's my turn to take a stand, knowing full well I'm going to lose my mind to the madness that is the American Mafia. I've always been told Blood is thicker than life. I wish I would have listened. Because regardless of who you love? You will betray. You will kill.
Blood Always Wins.
The only way out is death...yours.
Welcome to the Dark Side of the Family.
True to Van Dyken form, I couldn't put this book down until I was finished! I have loved this series from book one and I am still loving it at the end of book four! I cannot reveal much about the book because it will spoil it, just know that there are plenty of twists and turns to make it interesting! I found myself trying to figure out what was really going on; Van Dyken has a way of making the reader guess and second guess at what is really happening, and I enjoyed the mystery. There is plenty of action, emotional turmoil and romance! This series is a mafia must read!!! As usual, I am looking forward to the next book!
Rating: Cussing, sexual innuendos and for this reader who likes her romances clean, there were about three scenes that I had to skip altogether
You can pick up your own copy of Elicit via Amazon.
