Enrage by Rachel Van Dyken
Release Date: July 31st
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Enrage is the next standalone in the international best selling mafia series, Eagle Elite.
Part of a world I loathe.
Part of a family who hates me more than I hate myself.
Living with a girl who reminds me of my darkness.
I’m. In. Hell.
Also known as the Cosa Nostra.
My life was over the minute I stepped off that plane.
Son to a murdered mob boss.
Heir to a throne of murder and lies.
My name is Dante Nicolasi.
And there will be blood.
Dante slammed his hand into the tree, his jaw popped as he gritted his teeth together and then calm washed over him as he whispered near my ear, “Want me to kill him?”
A few people walked by and stared at us, it looked like he was kissing my neck, like we were normal college students sharing a moment.
Nope. Wrong story, kiddos.
He just offered to kill someone for offending me, run along, nothing to see here.
“After,” I said. “Kill him after he stops being useful to you, to the bosses.” I couldn’t believe what was coming out of my mouth, what I was agreeing to. “Yes.”
Dante pulled back, his face broke out into a smile. “How messed up is it that I’m actually looking forward to that moment?”
I gulped. “It’s in your blood.”
“I wish it wasn’t,” he said gruffly. “I wish I didn’t crave it — dream about it — almost as much as I wish I didn’t feel guilt every day because of it.”
I sighed and put my hands on his chest, then ran them up around his neck, he didn’t move, or flinch, so maybe we were having a moment as our mouths almost touched. “The only shame in life, is not being who you were truly born to be. If that means you kill the bad guys — kill the bad, guys Dante. Just don’t lose your soul in the process.”
“And if it’s already gone?” He croaked his eyes darkening as he slowly leaned in until his forehead touched mine.
Days ago I would have been terrified that his body was this close.
Days ago, I would have shoved him away and run.
Days ago, I would have shuddered that his bloodstained hands were running up and down my skin.
Today was different.
Today I closed my eyes and drank in the wicked scent of Dante Nicolasi, the cologne mixed with soap. I inhaled.
And opened my eyes again.
Yesterday I was angry. I was afraid.
Today. Against the tree.
Pinned by Dante’s arms.
I was safe.
“I’ll help you find it,” I whispered.
“Just don’t damn yourself in the process, El.” He cupped my face with his right hand, his eyes fell to my mouth, his half-lidded seductive look could stop a girl dead in her tracks.
The wives always talked about how attractive his father was, even at an older age.
Almost like he’d aged backward.
Dante was no different.
If it was possible for a human to get more attractive by the day — he’d be the one to prove you right.
“Are you going to kiss me again?” I asked hopefully.
“No.” He pulled away.
My heart sank into my stomach.
“Because I don’t want to start something I have no intention of stopping.”
My head jerked, our eyes locked, and I saw it. The honesty.
“Told you I’d never lie to you, El.” His voice had a warning edge to it, like I shouldn’t push him, push whatever invisible boundaries he’d mentally set up between us. His eyes never left mine.
And I knew, this was what he looked like when he was telling the truth.
His eyes pierced through my defenses in an unapologetic search for my heart, my soul.
And I let them.
“We should get to class.” I finally found my voice and started walking, he fell into step beside me.
And I spent the rest of the day thinking about the non-kiss.
And the promise that came with it.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been over four years since the first book in the Eagle Elite series by Rachel Van Dyken was published. I have been addicted to this series and anxiously look forward to the next book. At this point in the series one would think it would be winding down because the new generation of the five families has taken over their rightful places in The Family hierarchy .
Dante Nicolasi is the only member who hasn’t taken his rightful place. He’s in training and struggling to find his place within the family structure. He’s attending the Eagle Elite Academy. Like the family structure, The Eagle Elite Academy is also changing and a new generation has taken over the reigns and it is not the Italians. It is up to Dante to find out who’s in charge, what they are up to, and how to regain control. He has to prove his loyalty to the family. All hell is breaking loose and Dante is in the middle of this explosive inferno.
El Petrov’s life was saved by the Italian Mafia. She’s under their protection but their protection can only extend so far unless she becomes a part of the family. Trading the abusive Russian captivity for a new kind of controlled environment leaves her unsure of her place in her new world. She is clearly not part of the Italian dynasty but is also not a part of the Russian dynasty. The Russians want her dead. The only way the Italians can keep her alive is to marry her off in the family. The only eligible candidate is Dante Nicolasi. Dante is just a threatening as her Russian captors but in a different way. He stirs something within her soul. Dante doesn’t want a wife but he does want an ally or friend in the same new world she was thrust in.
Dante and El find a cooperative, friendly relationship in their new lives at The Eagle Elite academy. Their tentative partnership is the key to finding all the answers. The answers are anything but easy and could destroy the Family.
What happens next is shocking, devastating, and left me reeling with disbelief. Rachel Van Dyken took an explosive series and detonated it! She blew their world apart and breathed new life in this thrilling series. I can’t wait to see what comes next!
