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.
After finishing "Elect (Eagle Elicit #2)", I couldn't wait to get stuck into this book. With the way book two of the series ended, I knew that this one was going to be mainly focused on Chase and Mil and knowing this couple, I was going to get one hell of an interesting read and I was not disappointed. Rachel has once again delivered a story that was full of nail biting suspense, edge of the seat drama, and a whole lot of violence. There was even time for some swoonworthy romance. The mafia world is never a dull one!
I'd refused to go down without a fight. I was going to finish what
the De Langes started, and they were all going to die.
The story began with yet another heart stopping prologue that almost made me tear through the pages until I knew just what it had all meant! I was then transported back to the present day. Chase had been propositioned by Mil and just as I expected, he had agreed to the proposition. Despite his feelings for Trace, it was time for Chase to move on and accepting Mil's proposal gave him the encouragement to do just that. I was keen to find out the reasons behind Mil and Chase's arrangement and I was sure that I would most probably discover even more secrets along the way.
Chase was anything but safe. In fact, he was damn hazardous to my health.
But he was also loyal. And I needed loyal more than anything.
Mil had always come across as such a feisty, hot headed girl. The type of girl that you wouldn't want to pick a fight with. however I soon discovered the truth behind this tough girls attitude and I was surprised by what I was reading. Mil was frightened and scared for what her future held. She was also a girl who had had her heartbroken with no hope of it ever being repaired. I felt truly sorry for her and I had a new found admiration for how she was living her life with so many demons surrounding her. I was so pleased that Mil now had Chase by her side. I knew that he would never fail her.
"Whatever is is, Mil. Just let it go. You can trust me-I'll protect you until I die.
If you remember one thing from these lips, it's this. I'll die before letting you go."
I had fallen in love with Chase in the previous books of the series. I'm sure that most readers did. Chase was a strong, loyal guy with a heart of gold. He was a good man, no wonder that Mil had chosen him to be the guy to help her in her time of need. Chase was more than capable to save the day, the only thing I was concerned about was how he was recovering from what had previously gone on with Trace and if that was going to affect his relationship with Mil. Having now read the story, I realise that I had nothing to worry about. Chase took his new role very seriously. He was committed to Mil, body and soul and it wasn't long before his heart played apart in their new relationship, too. Maybe accepting Mil's proposition was the best thing Chase had ever done.
I could kiss her tears away. I could offer her my money, my body,
all earthly possessions, and in the end, I would still be wanting more.
Because I was already falling for pieces of her.
As usual, with this series, the story wasn't just about Mil and Chase. The author had given a lot of the characters their own chapters, written from their own POV. So not only did I get the chance to catch up with Trace and Nixon but I also had the opportunity to discover what was going on in some of the other characters heads and the parts that they were playing in the story. I found that this really helped me understand what was going on and it also helped me connect with the characters. One of the characters that took me by surprise was Tex. Tex had always appeared to be a bit of joker and a playboy. Never taking life too seriously, despite the dangerous lifestyle that he was a part of. Now I have an extremely different view of Tex. His story was one that pulled at my heart strings. The next book in the series is all about Tex, so I am looking forward to uncovering more about his secretive life.
"Entice" was another brilliant instalment to the series and gets ❤️❤️❤️❤️ from me!
