Review: Envy by Rachel Van Dyken


Every family has rules, the mafia just has more....
Do not speak to the bosses unless spoken to. 
Do not make eye contact unless you want to die. 
And above all else, do not fall in love. 
Renee Cassani's future is set.
Her betrothal is set. 
Her life, after nannying for the five families for the summer, is set
Somebody should have told Vic Colezan that. 
He's a man who doesn't take no for an answer. 
And he only wants one thing. 
Her. 
Somebody should have told Renee that her bodyguard needed as much discipline as the kids she was nannying. 
Good thing Vic has a firm hand.

Review:  4.25 of 5 Stars

I have loved every Eagle Elite book, however, the last one was lacking something for me.  Maybe it was because I was so upset for the character.  I am not 100% sure, but I almost did not want to read this one for fear it would make me not want to keep going.  I am so happy to say that this book reminded me so much of some previous EE books that I am excited to read the next one!

Vic is Nixon's cousin and swore an oath to protect the 5 families.  The oath included celibacy and that he would never have a family.  No big deal at the time, and he has become the best bodyguard for the EE families. Until the Nanny comes into the picture.  He is so screwed.

Renee Cassani knows her dad is part of the mafia and can't wait to escape this life when she finishes her final year of college.  All she has to do is make it through her summer job, being a nanny to the scariest mobsters around.  Shouldn't be hard, right?

I really enjoyed the character development of Vic and Renee.  Their story is fun and somewhat light hearted compared the the previous book and that made me happy.  But it also lays the groundwork for the next book in the EE series.  While I enjoyed this story and am looking forward to the next one, I am unsure how many more books will continue to work for this series.  I love it and part of me doesn't' want it to end, while the other wants it to end before more characters I love die.
