Publisher's Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Rachel Van Dyken comes a new story in her Eagle Elite series....

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.

Incredible!!!

This story has all the elements I want in a love story – heart, passion, emotion, and humor. A protective and brooding hero combined with a sweet and strong heroine. Vic and Renee have sizzling chemistry and I love their witty banter. Try as they may to resist the attraction they are powerless to stop the fall. I just love when the alpha male is brought to his knees. This storyline is very well-written. The twists and turns along the way kept things interesting and it is a rollercoaster ride of emotions. I adored the family scenes – the closeness, the razzing, the protectiveness were so much fun to read. I just can’t get enough of this mafia family!! Another must read from this talented author. Scarlet Chase and David Brenin brought these characters and story to life.

Scarlet Chase is miscast here...

I'm a fan of Eagle Elite and I enjoyed this novella. However, I'm disappointed that Scarlet Chase was cast AGAIN. I love her as a narrator (Blacktop Cowboys series is phenomenal), but she definitely has a "mature" voice which doesn't fit with the 19-24yo characters she keeps narrating. Additionally, one of the things that I've loved about this series is that each character has his/her own voice throughout the series because the narrators changed depending on the POV. However, Scarlet Chase has been the female lead for Enrage, Eulogy, & Envy and David Benin has been the lead in Eulogy & Envy as well as narrating a DIFFERENT character in Enrage.

I'll keep pre-ordering the e-books, but I'm losing faith in the audiobooks.

This storyline was cute but not something that could be attributed to the Mafia. It ended abruptly and the secrecy surrounding the heroine was really not a secret! The narrators were both good though.

Wonderful writing, perfect story

How have I overlooked Viv and Renee in previous books? Were they not mentioned? Or was I too involved with other characters to notice? I loved Vic, who vowed an oath to protect the family and remain celibate! An impossible situation with the temptation of the family nanny Renee. Perfect writing, as usual, a wonderful story, forbidden romance at its best. Of course there’s a secret, I was completely blown away when it all came out. 50% predicted, 50% blindsided. I did not see that coming. With wonderful characters, I just can’t get enough of the Elite guys, they are hilarious, I mean they have me laughing out loud when they’re in a room together. Love them, and can’t wait for more. David Brenin narrated perfectly.

Awesome!

Another great addition to the Eagle Elite series. Vic was a tortured dark soul who found love in the stare of Renee. Beautiful story - RVD has done it again!
