Publisher: Rachel Van Dyken
Synopsis: 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. 

What I Thought:

Chase is a hottie!  Boy am I glad Nixon didn't have to kill Chase after all.  It would've hurt everyone involved and Mil too.  I was very excited to read Entice and I started it immediately after I finished Elect. Rachel Van Dyken doesn't disappoint.  This book was fantastic!

As is prerequisite in an Eagle Elite series book, there is loads of drama, secrets being revealed, lots of hot guys with quick trigger fingers, and some strong women.  You add that to a strong story line and you've got a book that you won't be able to stop reading even when events might make you cringe.

The only thing about this book I didn't really enjoy so much was Chase's abrupt switch of love from Trace to Mil.  Granted he sort of had to since Trace didn't love him the way he wanted her to and she got married to Nixon, but he also lied to her and played her in an attempt to keep her.  The next thing I know, he's married to Mil, which I get was a business decision, but he's declaring he's in love with her soon after.  Beyond that, I loved Mil.  She's no nonsense and the now head of a mafia family with a lot to prove.  I like how she was a go-getter and didn't put up with crap from anyone.

As I said earlier, this is a great book and fan's of Rachel Van Dyken, those who enjoy darker style books with their romance, and new adult readers will enjoy this book.  It can be read as a stand alone, but does refer to events that occurred in Elect, so if you're new to the series, I'd suggest starting with Elite.
