Review: Elude by Rachel Van Dyken
The sixth book in the internationally bestselling Eagle Elite Series.
*Interconnected Stand Alone*
Twenty-Four hours before we were to be married–I offered to shoot her.
Ten hours before our wedding–I made a mockery of her dying wish.
Five hours before we were going to say our vows–I promised I’d never love her.
One hour before I said I do–I vowed I’d never shed a tear over her death.
But the minute we were pronounced man and wife–I knew.
I’d only use my gun to protect her.
I’d give my life for hers.
And I would, most definitely, lose my heart, to a dying girl—a girl who by all accounts should have never been mine in the first place.
I always believed the mafia would be my end game–where I’d lose my heart, while it claimed my soul. I could have never imagined. It would be my redemption.
Or the beginning of something beautiful.
The beginning of her.
The end of us.
*Book Received in Exchange for Honest Opinion/Review*
This book gutted me, that is the simplest way to describe it. It was everything and so much more, I loved it! So, we all know how Elude picks up, with Sergio being forced to marry Andi as punishment for double crossing the family. Then at 15% I am giggling because Tex is being an *ss and its hilarious. At 28% I am laughing so hard at the banter between everyone, strong-minded and opinionated Sicilians! But the best is saved for last because from about 84% and on I struggled to read because I couldn’t stop crying. I was doing everything in my power not to cry and the tears were flowing uncontrollably.
This is where Rachel Van Dyken excels as an author, she makes you fall in love with characters, you become invested and emotionally involved. Then she shreds your heart to pieces because its necessary, it might not be what we want but its necessary. And then you patiently wait for the next books because you want that same rush of feelings all over again. I am addicted, enchanted, and captivated by the mafia.
