BLOG TOUR + REVIEW + GIVEAWAY: Elicit by Rachel Van Dyken


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. 

Im 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


For the First time, I'm Speechless!
Rachel has out shined herself not only for what is another brilliant book in the Eagle Elite series, but also how much she has jam packed in to this incredible Book.

The emotional journey that is brought through Tex and Mo's story is crazy! At times the story was heart wrenching with raw emotion between their romance, lies and deceit that is kept from being revealed to others. The Twists and unexpected turns make you gasp "oh no she didn't". I love the unexpected twist that are thrown upon us making us second guess what is going to happen next. I guess with the rest of the gang, you don't expect anything less. lol.  

Its very hard to write this review to not to ruin or reveal what unfolds. When I love a book so much i want to scream out so much its so hard! I am a Nixon & Trace fan however Tex & Mo has certainly been added to the top of the next. 

With the bonus extra at the end of the book with Rachel providing us a Trace & Nixon Novella makes me want to re-read the whole series from the beginning. 

For those yet to experience the Eagle Elite Series, I would Highly recommend this series.

I had to believe that there was a light at the end of the tunnel and if there wasn’t, well I was screwed.

Whistling, I pulled open the door to the house and walked into the kitchen. Chase was standing there shirtless, sweat pouring down his chest as he devoured a cinnamon roll and cup of coffee. My stomach growled at the smell of fresh rolls.
ith your face on it.”
“How’d my face turn out?” I asked, genuinely curious.
“Wouldn’t know.” Chase shrugged. “I got tired of punching and eventually pulled out my gun. I’ll buy Nixon another punching bag tomorrow.”
“Hmm, got a little rage, Chase?”
“I don’t know Tex, care to sucker punch me again and find out?”
“Ladies.” Nixon stormed into the room. “Tuck those ovaries back into your pants and grow some balls—nobody’s punching anyone.”
“Says who?” I snorted bracing my hands on the counter top.
“Says the guy who’s going to put a bullet in your head if you as much as hint as disrespecting me in my own home.” Nixon yawned and reached for a cup, then offered me one. “Coffee?”
“Probably time to retire when threatening your friends over coffee seems normal, Nixon.” I took the cup. “Just saying.”

“Probably time to take Xanax if you’re punching your best friend in the face for breathing.” Chase lifted his cup mockingly into the air. “Just sayin’.
