Elect by Rachel Van Dyken  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 . . .


     Once again Rachel has knocked it out the park.  I have to tell you I am not the mob person in my family, it is my husband, he love the genre.  I have to say though I love this storyline a lot.  I know I told my husband about this story and he has enjoyed me telling him about it.

     All of the characters just grab ahold of you with a vice grip and won’t let you go.  The thing is you don’t want them to because you just can’t get enough.

     Nixon and Chase are cousins, SEXY & YOUNG, who basically run Eagle Elite since Nixon’s family owns it.  With Nixon in charge of course.  Tex is a friend, in line after Chase, also an enforcer of all school/family rules.  Monroe (Mo), is Nixon’s twin sister, who attends the academy too.  You see their father was the head of the Abandonato Mob Family until he went to prison and Nixon took over.

     Now enter Tracy (Alfero) who wins a spot at Elite and it turns out her Grandpa is connected too, but to another crime family, The Alfero’s which he is the head of.  In fact it is her parents death years ago that everyone is up in arms about.  She like everyone else has an assumed last name.  This book goes into finding out who killed her parents before it destroys Nixon’s family because they all believe it is his dad who did it.  Not that his not a bad and evil man but did he do this?

     Tracy holds the key but doesn’t know it and many different enemies are coming for all these cast of characters to get the answers.  Or it’s a life for a life and they would start with someone Nixon loves which would mean…Tracy.

     How does Chase and Tracy feel about all this?  Nixon has been throwing them together as a couple to keep her safe since he had already had Chase guarding her it seemed natural.  Now feelings are starting to grow between them right?  With looks that are given and hand brushes.  Will this be as cut and dry as it was supposed to be? 

     This book is just so exciting I could not put it down.  I didn’t want to go to sleep that night in order to finish but could not keep my eyes open.  The twist and turns were fun and kept you guessing.  I loved it.  Great job can’t wait for the next installment.  Provided by netgalley.
