The sixth book in the internationally bestselling Eagle Elite Series.
*Interconnected Stand Alone*

Twenty-Four hours before we were to be married--I offered to shoot her.
Ten hours before our wedding--I made a mockery of her dying wish.
Five hours before we were going to say our vows--I promised I'd never love her.
One hour before I said I do--I vowed I'd never shed a tear over her death.
But the minute we were pronounced man and wife--I knew.
I'd only use my gun to protect her.
I'd give my life for hers.
I'd cry.
And I would, most definatly, lose myself, to a dying girl---a girl who by all accounts should have never been mine in the first place.
I always believed the mafia would be my end game--poisoning my heart, while it claimed my soul. I could have never imagined. It would be my redemption.
Or the beginning of something beautiful.
The beginning of her.
The end of us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Story! I told myself I wouldn’t cry. I lied. I told myself that it wouldn’t end like I thought it would. I lied. I told myself that I would forgive Rachel for breaking my heart. I lied. Ok, maybe I will forgive Rachel for Elude, some day, but that day is not today. Beautiful, poetic, heart wrenching, funny, sweet and tension filled. These are all words to describe Elude, yet none of these words really come close to expressing how I really felt reading this amazing story. I thought that this series couldn’t get any better. I knew it would be great, but epic is more like it for Sergio and Andi. Their story will make you laugh. It will reduce you to tears, big, fat, ugly, snot producing tears (poetic, I am not). Rachel has the ability to make you laugh out loud in one sentence and crying like a child in the next. This has to be the most beautiful story of the series. Just when I thought Phoenix’s redemption had stolen my heart, along came Sergio and Andi. Bravo, Rachel. Bravo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good you won't believe what you're reading! It's no secret I'm a huge fan of Rachel Van Dyken's Elite Series. Each book has gotten successively better and the action and twists have gotten bigger. I was looking really looking forward to enjoying Elude and seeing Sergio redeem himself as well as see what new antics the family was involved in now. This story is nothing like I was expecting and days later I'm still thinking about what I read. Andi and Sergio made a great couple. I loved seeing Andi tease Sergio. She was light to his dark. I loved her attitude. She has so much going on, yet she chose to always smile and enjoy the moment. Sergio on the other hand was wracked with guilt from past deeds and didn't feel like he deserved anything, let alone have a marriage he didn't want forced on him. I understood where both of them were coming from and it was a lot of fun seeing their different mindsets clash. I was surprised by how often I laughed while reading this book. This book was humorous no doubt, but also serious, and I appreciated the moments of levity. I wasn't surprised by the tears running unchecked down my face. I may have ugly cried. Okay, there is no "may", I did ugly cry. Even thinking about it now makes me want to cry. I think I experienced an entire range of emotions while reading this book. I loved seeing the "family" all together. In happiness and in need, the young heads of the crime families and their wives, many who've had their stories told in earlier book in the series, all came together and I loved seeing them happy. Along the way, new characters were introduced and some major plot twists happened that left me reeling. I know they left of people in the story shaken too. While I know I have more books to look forward to which will answer many of my unanswered questions, the story felt incomplete. While this is and isn't the type of story I've come to expect from this series, it does showcase Rachel's range in writing. I'm very eager to see how the Elite series continues from here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mad Love for Italy and Russia Rachel Van Dyken does it again! I wish that Amazon has a 10* rating because that's what this book deserves! Elude is a raw, emotional,gut wrenching, breathtakingly beautiful tale of love and life. In book six of The Eagle Elite we finally meet the mysterious Sergio and the Russian Beauty Andi who teach us the values of living each day to the fullest! Sergio and Andi's epic tale will stay will you long after you are done reading it! I'm a huge fan of Rachel's work and this is by far one of the best books I have ever read and cannot wait for more from the Eagle Elite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing read, but have the tissues on standby. This book was really good. I you will definitely want to have a box of tissues nearby. You will need them. I sobbed through about 20% of the book. To the point that I couldn't see the words on my kindle. This book really makes you think about death. It puts into perspective to love life to the fullest. Don't give up. Always do everything possible to make the best of what you have. Andi is a fun, take no crap, sarcastic, Russian beauty. She loved life and even though she knew she was dying she didn't let it bring her down. She wanted to make the best of her life. Sergio is the family ghost that we don't know a lot about. He is a brooding, angry man. He doesn't want anything to do with anyone who might make him feel. He wants to be left alone. But maybe what you want isn't always what you need. I loved the interaction between Sergio and Andi. The chemistry between them was palpable through the pages. You would think that they would kill each other with all the tension between them at first. Neither wanted to be thrown into their circumstances, but it ended up being what they both needed. Rachel has done it again. She has delivered another page turner that will leave you NEEDING more now. You won't want to put this book down, but when you get to the end you'll be gutted and wish you hadn't read it so fast so you had more to read.
