Top critical review
Very Romeo and Juliet, but with a different ending.
7 May 2019
I love the Eagle Elite series. I feel like it's one I could just keep going with. This book fits the mould for the rest well; super hot anti-hero type with funny banter falls in love in with the wrong girl and is ready to die for their love. Very Romeo and Juliet this one.
The characters? Well. I liked Alice. She had a tough streak which I found more pronounced than the other wives at first (except for Mo) Because of her background she's developed a sense of vengeance and claims it.
Andrei, I saw glimpses of him in Vic and Renee's book, and so I wasn't surprised he was so damaged. It wasn't too much. I liked how his development into his certain behaviour traits had been built up, and that was given to the reader.
As for this book being the end? It didn't feel like it. I think we'll see all of these characters in the future, because there isn't a proper goodbye in there, and we readers need that goodbye. So, I'll be moving on to the new spin-off series with high hopes and good intentions.
Three stars because it was an easy read which I enjoyed. But, there was no complexity to it.
I do love a good mafia book though, and RVD manages to balance love, fear, violence, and humour effortlessly.
