From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken comes a new story in her Eagle Elite series…
Every family has rules, the mafia just has more….
Do not speak to the bosses unless spoken to.
Do not make eye contact unless you want to die.
And above all else, do not fall in love.
Renee Cassani’s future is set.
Her betrothal is set.
Her life, after nannying for the five families for the summer, is set
Somebody should have told Vic Colezan that.
He’s a man who doesn’t take no for an answer.
And he only wants one thing.
Somebody should have told Renee that her bodyguard needed as much discipline as the kids she was nannying.
Good thing Vic has a firm hand.
OK, I’ll be the first to say that I have not read this whole series … yet! They’ve been on my TBR for a while and I have actually read a few within the series, I know, it’s a horrible habit, but it is what it is. One of the reasons why I love the 1.001 Dark Nights novellas is because they’re great introduction for people who may not have read from these series before. However, it has just added to my ever growing TBR list, you know, the one that’s nearly impossible to get through especially if you’re like me and adding books every single day! With all of that being said, ENVY is a standalone, but it’ll definitely enhance your reading experience since a lot of previous characters in the series are in this one.
Oh my, what a read this one turned out to be. ENVY was packing heat in more ways than one! Renee and Vic have insane chemistry and it’s just so intense. From the books that I have read in this series, I have absolutely loved the heroines, they’re able to bring out the softer side of these mafia men even if it can be a rare sight in public, but it’s there. Plus, it’s not easy being a part of a mafia family, you’re constantly trying to make it to the next day. And these men will go at all lengths to protect their own. This is a mafia series after all expect blood and death even in the most casual setting.
I loved Vic, he’s a bit of a mystery, never really saying much and ALWAYS watching. I was so thankful for the dual POV because the peek into is mind was essentialy for this book. We see his struggle of trying to find a balance of keeping his oath and protecting the families and not trying to give into Renee. But that’s easier said than done, the tension just builds and builds between these two and it’s absolutely scorching. There’s no stopping from keeping these two from what they want even if it could bring more blood onto both of their hands.
If you didn’t, I’ve already been a RVD fan and Envy has been added to my #RSFave list for this year! Absolutely love this read that’ll keep you hooked from beginning to end. I was quite surprised to see myself tearing up a little bit towards in the end, like of course Rachel would find a way to pull at our hearts in this dark mafia world!
