Chase Winter let the love of his life slip through his fingers and into the hands of his best friend and mafia boss of the Abandanato family. Now that he’s been given a second chance to right a wrong–he refuses to let his own selfishness stand in the way. The only problem? He’s not fully in possession of his heart, so when Mil De Lange, the girl who’s innocence he stole, and heir to the worst of the worst mafia families in the US, asks him for a favor. He actually says yes, not realizing that that one yes has the power to destroy them all.

Mil’s been in love with Chase as long as she can remember, but as the years went by, the love turned to hate, and now that he’s agreed to help her, she’s wondering if she made a fatal error. Because

Chase isn’t a teenager anymore. He’s a hot blooded male, bent on owning every part of her body and soul, and willing to kill anyone in his path who dares stand in the way.

It’s time for secrets to finally be revealed…but make no mistake, it’s going to take a lot of bloodshed for those truths to be discovered.

You’ve never read a New Adult Mafia story like this before…loyalties will be tested, lovers reunited, and friendships obliterated. Welcome to the Family. Blood in–No out.


Review: Chase and Mil are my second favorite couple in the Eagle Elite series. Entice tells their story and it is definitely not one from a fairy tale.

Unlike Nixon and Trace, Chase and Mil have a very long history together. They conquered some of their firsts with each other but eventually lost that connection. Entice brings their story to the spotlight and shows what happens when these two connect again. There is action, drama, and lots of bloodshed. Murder and mayhem follows them like a shadow. There is also a lot of humor even though the book is filled with violence. Chase is probably one of the most violent mafia men in the story but he is also the funniest. Literally, you will be laughing out loud.

Even though the events are not real, they definitely could be. The actions and events aren’t so farfetched that they could never happen. While I was reading Entice, it was very easy to picture the characters and the settings. Van Dyken also leaves a lot to the imagination. While writing, she is very careful not to give away too much about what is going to happen or what choice is going to be made. She keeps the reader interested and wanting more.

I would not recommend Entice for younger readers. It contains violence that is meant to be for adults.
