***Review - Elicit by Rachel Van Dyken - Eagle Elite #4 - 5 Stars***


Elicit by Rachel Van Dyken
Eagle Elite #4
5 Twisting, Turning Brilliant Stars
Blurb - Cursed, numb, rejected, scorned, wicked, sinister, dark, 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 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. 

I’m 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.

Elicit by Rachel Van Dyken is book #4 in The Eagle Elite series.

I've had this book on my kindle since it was released but I just couldn't convince myself to start it. These books stress me out and when I read the teaser about Tex at the end of book #3 I was so worried that Tex would become the devil that I've been terrified to read Elicit.

I've got to say it Rachel Van Dyken your books stress me out. To say that I'm going to have a book hangover in the morning is a massive understatement.

It's 2.45am and I've just finished reading, there was no way I could put this book down. I'm so tense and wound up because literally right up to the last minute I genuinely had no idea how it would all turn out.

Is it odd that I really hate Sergio, why didn't Tex at least shoot him once just to get the message across???

Now I know the majority of people will have already read this book but regardless I'm going to try and not give away any spoilers.

This story twists and turns more than a good roller coaster and to be honest if you don't pay attention it could be really easy to become completely confused.

It feels like everyone is double crossing and lying to someone else, who is then lying to someone else. 

I think what I forgot about these character is 'blood in, no out' but sometimes blood isn't just the stuff you were born with.

I can't believe he's back!!!! I kind of love him now, he's so broken, so much more than before and you just know that she is going to be the one that saves him!!

I loved this book, it had me on the edge of my seat and so stressed my back hurts from being tense as a board for the last couple of hours but God this series is brilliant.

I've never read anything that is anywhere near as outrageously complicated or amazingly dramatic Elicit gets 5 stars from me.
