Elect (Eagle Elite, #2)Elect by Rachel Van Dyken
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 Stars!!!

This is a really enjoyable series which combines the innocence of school life alongside the darkness of the brutal and controlling spectre of the mafia.

Nixon loves Trace unconditionally. Brought up together they were destined to spend their lives intertwined that was until Trace's parents were killed and she was hidden for her own safety by her grandparents. Now back together, with Trace aware of her past, they must separate again in order to protect Trace from her parent's killer or killers.

Thrust into Chase's arms, Trace knows her heart is torn. She loves Chase but her soul belongs to Nixon. Forced to live a lie though, she must convince those around her who could cause her harm that she is in a relationship with Chase and that twists the knife further all of their hearts.

As Nixon continues to seek out the threats against his leadership, he uncovers some family secrets and an unlikely ally in Phoenix. Liaising with another powerful mafia family from Sicily, Nixon slowly gets the answers he's been searching for his whole life.

The group continue to be supported by Tex and Nixon's sister, Mo. A new addition joins the group of friends in the form of Phoenix's sister, Mil. A feisty and determined girl, she is prepared to do anything to help her brother and to reveal the secrets which have been buried for years.

This story was shocking and disturbing but at the same time fascinating. I must admit I did find the whole family tree a bit confusing and it took me a little while to get my head around the new family dynamics as unknown parents were revealed.

This is a really well written and thought out story line. It is full of twists and turns and I can't wait to read where the story heads next, especially with Mil.
