Blog Tour: Elicit by Rachel Van Dyken- Review, Teasers and Giveaway!

Posted August 17, 2014 by Holly in Blog Tour / 0 Comments

Rachel Van Dyken’s, Elicit, blog tour stops by today with my review, a few teasers and a giveaway for you.  This is book #4 in Rachel’s best selling Eagle Elite series and a definite must read <3


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
Welcome to the Dark
Side of the Family

My Review

As soon as I opened Elicit I KNEW it was going to be excellent. On page one Rachel already had my heart hurting something fierce for Tex. By chapter two, I needed ice cream to soothe my hurting heart for he AND Mo. The two of them just ripped me apart! I loved that I could feel their hurt and the love that they still had for each other. I think Elicit had me a lot more anxious than the previous books. The action and angst was ramped up to about a def-con level 10 here and with Tex and Mo’s history, my heart got a workout. The suspense of not knowing what Tex would decide in regards to his birthright had me wanting to speed read but at the same time I found myself savoring every tender moment between he and Mo. I also didn’t want to miss any secrets, you know those Mafia folk are full of them. And believe me, some of them were shockers. I think Elicit is my favorite so far in the series, but I’m already chomping at the bit for the next book. I love the Mafia action of Rachel’s Eagle Elite series along with the jaw dropping secrets she manages to weave into each story. I love the the realness of her characters, she’s turned them into real people who’s lives I’ve become 100% invested in.
