“As burns this saint, so burns my soul. I enter alive, and I will have to get out dead.”

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. 

The dark and dangerous world of Rachel Van Dyken's Elite series continues. Entice is the follow up story of Chase after the heart break. Trace made her decision in Elect, and readers were both happy and sad with the outcome. Chase is an amazing character, but he was just not able to replace the loving yet deadly Nixon. With all of the turn of events in the last book we were left with a few new characters, and even more emotions. This story picks up immediately following, and highlight the business relationship between Chase and Mil. With efforts to restore her family's name Mil must take desperate measures. These measures include a business marriage with Chase that will allow her the respect to correct all the wrongs of the past. Only no one counted on the deep and meaningful emotions that have been festering for these two characters since Mil was fourteen. Her entire life has been one tragic and dangerous turn after another, and this young woman will appeal to the dangerous thrill seeking readers. Even more than Trace I find Mil to be the resident bada**, and I love every minute of it. Chase character transform even more in this book, and while I was left with a slight feeling of betrayal after the desperate attempt for Trace in Elect, I found that Entice has restored my faith in his character. More importantly, I find myself falling in love with this devotion and protective nature in this book alone. This was an amazing addition to the Elite series, and I highly recommend this series to the suspense seeking readers. On a end note, I also wanted to express my unyielding desperation for the next book. With such a great experience here I am left with the anxiousness for the next book that shows so much promise with the story of Tex and Mo.
