Would you die for the one you love?
Nixon Abandonato made his choice. And now he has to pay the price. Tracey is the love of his life, but being with him has made her a target of his family's enemies. The only way to keep Trace alive is convince the world she means nothing to him.
Trace Rooks has fallen irrevocably in love with the son of her family's sworn rival, and she knows in her bones nothing can tear them apart. Until Nix suddenly pushes her away and into the arms of his best friend... But Trace isn't ready to give up on a future with Nix--and if he won't fight for them, she will.
In the end, a sacrifice must be made. A life for a life. For what better way to cover a multitude of sins than with the blood of a sinner . . .
Eagle Elite, a Mafia-owned private college in Chicago, is the unique setting for this overly complicated contemporary new adult romantic thriller. A recently arrived Sicilian family, the Nicolosis, challenges local don Nixon Abandonato, a senior at Eagle Elite, for dominance of his turf. Luca Nicolosi left Sicily to settle a score with the head of an Abandonato ally; his quest for vengeance poses a direct threat to the love of Nixon's life, Tracey Rooks, the granddaughter of a rival don. In order to keep her safe, Nixon assigns his cousin Chase to pose as her boyfriend while actually being her bodyguard. The only problem with that arrangement is that Chase is also crazy about Trace. Whenever Nixon sees any kind of physical contact between the two he's filled with rage, even though he knows it is supposed to be all an act to fool Luca into overlooking the connection between Trace and Nixon. The fairly straightforward retribution story line is pulled down by the weight of multiple additional subplots, but Van Dyken's characterizations and humor pull an otherwise overwrought, overpopulated story out of the dumps.
A love triangle.....❤️
Loved this book. even though I caught myself rooting for both Nixon and Chase and I was on the fence as to who should end up with Trace. I loved how it ended because if u read the next book u find out everything works out the way it should. Loved it.
You will fall in love with this series!!!
I read between 4-6 books a week all romance genres and I have to say, I'm absolutely hooked on the Eagle Elite series and any novella associated to it! The characters are wonderfully complicated. The suspense, violence and surprises keep you on your toes. And my favorite, the sexual chemistry and dialogue will give you butterflies, make you laugh, break your heart and leave you wanting more. This series is the leader of a handful on my watch list and one I purchase the second it's available. It's not your typical billionaire romance, which I love by the way, it's different and better. I highly recommend all of the books in the Eagle Elite series. They can't come out fast enough in my opinion!
