All is lost.
All.
I don't recognize myself in the mirror anymore.
My thoughts are filled with hatred and dripping with rage.
I've lost my soul.
She took it to the depths of Hell with her and haunts me with images of what could have been.
Sixty lives are mine to take.
Sixty lives stand in the way of my vengeance.
Sixty lives plus one more.
Mine.
When the last drop of blood falls — mine will be spilled.
Only one person stands in the way.
She doesn't realize I'll kill her too.
I don't own a heart.
And even if I did — I wouldn't fall prey to its lies again.
I am Chase Abandonato.
Heir to a legacy of betrayal.
And I will kill them all.
Even if it means pointing the gun at myself.
A life for a life.
A soul for a soul.
Now I lay me down to sleep… I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
Blood in. No out.

The next stand alone in the internationally bestselling Eagle Elite Series.

 

 

Excerpt:

BLOOD. BLOOD. BLOOD.

It covered my hands.

It surged through my heart.

It dripped from my fingertips onto the concrete floor.

Trapped.

Broken.

Finished.

Hungry.

Insanity scratched its way into my psyche as I eyed the door and waited. One heartbeat, two heartbeats, three…

It opened.

I fired two rounds, and acrid smoke filled the air.

I thought I knew what love was. I was a fucking idiot. Every single bone in my body shuddered with rage, with the need to rip something apart, someone, anyone —all of them. My friends. My brothers. I brought the war to our house, and they would finish me because of it.

I’d thought I loved her.

Our love had been a lie.

Her betrayal my only truth.

And now?

Now, I finally knew what love was. I’d seen it, smelled it, tasted it.

And lost it.

I’d fucking lost it.

They would pay. They would all pay.

For taking her.

For turning her against me.

For making me believe that blood was everything, only after mine was spilled.

 

Review~

This is one of the best books if not thee best book I’ve ever read.

I don’t say that lightly either, I’ve read a shit load of books. This book tore me up, it broke my heart, and then I wanted to curl up in a corner and lose my shit while I cried the rest of the day. I am pretty sure Chase with be the death of me. I love all the guys in the series. I have my favorites for a variety of reasons and Chase was always one of them. While a lot of people have issues with him after the first two books, I always pulled for him and saw the reasons behind what he did to Nixon. I was #teamchase from the start.

I don’t think I will ever get some of these scenes out of my head. I can’t really say why or what for because I am NOT giving any of this away. I started it last night after “just looking at it for a minute” then ended up with only 3hrs of sleep. Yeah..I couldn’t put it down and didn’t realize when I looked up it was 3am and I had to get my kids up in 3hrs for school. So.damn.good.

I cried
I laughed
I sobbed my eyes out
My heart broke
Then it broke some more
I smiled and had tears on my face
I didn’t exhale till the epilogue

If you are not reading this series I don’t know what you are waiting for. Just do it. Start right now and I’ll hold your hand when you need it. I’ll be here when you get to this book with tissues and a hug.

Blood In No Out

 

Reading Order (From Rachel’s website):

  1. Elite
  2. Elect
  3. Entice
  4. Elicit
  5. Bang Bang
  6. Enchant (Series prequel you can technically read after you’ve read the first two, it’s only a few chapters but it really helps shed some light on things that happen in Elicit)
  7. Enforce * this book is Elite from the guys FOUR POV’s, I always suggest readers attack it when they are waiting for the next book to release, but I don’t suggest you dive in until you’ve finished Elicit.
  8. Ember
  9. Elude
  10. Enrapture * this is a novella that can be found in the Hurt anthology
  11. Empire
  12. A Very Mafia Christmas * this is a bonus novella you can get if you join Rachel’s Rockin’ Readers
  13. Enrage

**Enamor is a bonus novella in the back of Elicit that deals with Nixon/Trace

**Evoke is a 3 chapter bonus novella on WATTPAD for free that you can read in between Elite/Elect

My addition:

RIP is a spin off of the Eagle Elite series about Nikolai, the Russian doctor that pops up from time to time. This is a MUST read before you start Eulogy.
