There’s two sides to every story…
And ours? Isn’t pretty…
Then again, what’s pretty about the mafia?
Trace Rooks, that’s what.
But she only wants one of us, and I’ll kill him before I let him have her.
The only problem?
And she may just be our long lost enemy.
Whoever said college was hard, clearly didn’t attend Eagle Elite University.
Welcome to hell also known as the Mafia where blood is thicker than life, and to keep yours?

From Nixon’s POV
Doors slammed down the hall, blanketing us once again in silence. Damn it, Mo was smarter than I gave her credit for. When I’d asked her to put Trace on her floor, I hadn’t meant in her room, in my sister’s room.
Shit. She was going to pay for that.
Trace’s lower lip trembled as her eyes closed. She shook as multiple doors slammed down the hall, and with each tremble of her body — I wanted. With each twitch of her lips — I was tempted.
Finally, the slamming stopped. I walked behind Trace and closed the door. She didn’t budge. I couldn’t take it any longer. I had to be closer. My sanity was at stake. I swallowed and walked up behind her, my lips grazing the velvety softness of her ear. “You don’t like rules, do you, New Girl?”
She shivered in response to my voice.
I almost touched her then.
Almost threw the entire act way.
Almost threw it all away.
But it would have been selfish of me to satisfy my own damn curiosity and needs, when she had no idea what was at stake, what she was risking by being at Elite.
WHITNEY’S FOUR STAR REVIEW
I have been reading the Eagle Elite series from book one, anxiously awaiting each book as it comes out. And though Enforce takes place during the Elite (book one) storyline, I’ve been excited because well… more Nixon and Chase! Elite was told solely from Trace’s POV while Enforce has POV’s from Nixon, Chase, Tex and Phoenix.
This is not simply a re-telling of Elite either. Those mafia boys were up to a lot that we didn’t know about and throwing Tex and Phoenix into the story really helped make it unique. My heart just breaks for Phoenix and this book really sheds some light on all of the characters and why they act the way they do. It sort of brings you back to the beginning and lets us know what they were all thinking.
The series definitely needs to be read in order (see the next section for info if you haven’t started the series yet) and I recommend reading Enforce after Elicit or Bang Bang.
If there were things you didn’t like about Elite, you may find the same problems here. The characters are a bit immature but as the series progressed, they all grew up and acted more their age so it was easy to ignore in Enforce.
There is some sexual tension but no sex. For a mafia book, this is pretty clean. No cussing. There is some violence but it’s not very graphic although it is much more so than in Elite. These characters are not perfect. They all have flaws and yet none of them have asked for the lives they were dealt so watching them struggle is tough. Even the ‘bad guy’ will tug at your heart.
I highly recommend anyone who is a fan of the series to pick this up and give it a read. If you are brand new to the series, you need to start at the beginning with Elite!
EAGLE ELITE SERIES INFORMATION
Reading order is Elite, Elect, Entice, Elicit, Bang Bang (a stand alone novella) and then Enforce. Enforce takes place during the Elite storyline but is from the POV of all four main male characters. I recommend reading it after Elicit as you will have a better appreciation for the characters and their storylines. Enforce adds a lot of detail that Elite did not have.
