Elicit by Rachel Van Dyken
Eagle Elite Series #4
Release Date: August 11, 2014
Cursed, numb, rejected, scorned, wicked, sinister, dark, twisted…my 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 that…is 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.

Whitney’s Five Star Review
BLOWN AWAY! That’s what I am after reading this book. The Eagle Elite series just gets better and better. Please note this series MUST be read in order or all of the reviews will contain spoilers.
This is going to be short because so much of the detail is in the surprises. And yes, this book is full of surprises! My jaw hit the floor a few times and I’d love to unread this book so I could experience it all again. Just know that Rachel has outdone herself with Tex and Mo’s story. We get a few different POV’s (not just Tex and Mo) and it really works well. No problems with transitioning or tying all of their chapters together.
One thing that has impressed me about this series is that each book has gotten more mature which is needed to keep the storyline fresh. Tex’s personality is different enough from the other guys where this is not the same plot over and over. Rachel doesn’t really do sex in her books but holy hotness, this is by far the steamiest book of Rachel’s I have read. And again, it works because each book needs a new feel and the characters are getting older. The sex isn’t super detailed but it’s definitely there.
Rachel’s usual witty style of writing is evident and the few small typos I found did not detract from the reading experience. The story flows nicely and even though there are many characters in this series, the author has done an outstanding job in developing their individual personalities.
Please, please read this book! Tex is amazing and I am even considering putting him up on Chase’s pedestal. The end does tie up nicely but leads you into the general idea of the next book in the series.
