The sixth book in the internationally bestselling Eagle Elite Series.*Interconnected Stand Alone*
Twenty-Four hours before we were to be married--I offered to shoot her.Ten hours before our wedding--I made a mockery of her dying wish.Five hours before we were going to say our vows--I promised I'd never love her.One hour before I said I do--I vowed I'd never shed a tear over her death.But the minute we were pronounced man and wife--I knew.I'd only use my gun to protect her.I'd give my life for hers.I'd cry.And I would, most definatly, lose myself, to a dying girl---a girl who by all accounts should have never been mine in the first place.I always believed the mafia would be my end game--poisoning my heart, while it claimed my soul. I could have never imagined. It would be my redemption.Or the beginning of something beautiful.The beginning of her.The end of us.

First off, I must state that I am a HUGE Rachel Van Dyken fan.┬á IÔÇÖve read all of her other books, and was thus chomping at the bit to read the latest installment of the Eagle Elite series.┬á I am beyond happy to say she served up another helping of awesome.┬á This book is about Sergio.┬á WeÔÇÖve met him a few times in previous books.┬á HeÔÇÖs NixonÔÇÖs cousin and was once a ghost.┬á HeÔÇÖs now out of hiding and we get to understand what that fully means. Sergio was always a background character and came across as too suave, too confident, tooÔǪdead inside.┬á This book is about his awakening.┬á He still loves all things expensive, but now we get to understand what lies beneath the 1,000 count threads.┬á You know what youÔÇÖll find?┬á Depth.┬á Romance. A beautiful smile.

The story continues on from the last book (PhoenixÔÇÖs) where Sergio was posing as a professor at Eagle Elite, and Andi was his student.┬á Andi is quite the pistol.┬á SheÔÇÖs everything Sergio has never wanted, and yet, he wants her.┬á SheÔÇÖs Russian, a trained assassin, and smart as a whip.┬á Oh, and sheÔÇÖs super easy on the eyes.┬á The best part of her, though, is her personality.┬á She has been handed a boat load of lemons in her life.┬á This girl not only makes lemonade every day, but she adds in some Vodka (Stoli, because itÔÇÖs a Russian drink of choice) and cheers to the crap trying to bring her down.┬á SheÔÇÖs one of those bright lights that has a finite time to shine, and thus will burn brightly.

Rachel has a knack for endearing the characters to you, regardless of how you may have previously felt (PRIME EXAMPLE: Phoenix).┬á This book took a bit of a different turn that the others, and I loved the path she took us down.┬á It actually wrung a few tears from me.┬á Though I still canÔÇÖt decide which I like best – NixonÔÇÖs alpha personality, TexÔÇÖs larger than life persona, ChaseÔÇÖs sense of humor or PhoenixÔÇÖs humility ÔÇô I have to add SergioÔÇÖs heart into the mix.

If you havenÔÇÖt picked up the other books in the series, do yourself a favor.┬á By them all.┬á Lock yourself in your room with some sustenance and have at it.┬á You can read this book as a standalone, but the story and characters will have so much more depth if you read all of the books in order.

5 Plus shining stars!  You hit it out the ballpark, Rachel!
