Book Review: Ember (Eagle Elite #5) by Rachel Van Dyken


I am a Killer. A Rapist. A Monster.
I know only pain and survival.
That is until the Cappo’s sister walked into my life.
And changed everything.

She’s a light who makes my darkness darker, her smile makes my heart turn to ice, and I can’t escape the fear her seductive looks instill–knowing it’s only a matter of time before I fail–again, and take her for myself.
This is the story of my redemption.
But it’s not pretty…I died, and now I’m alive, but not living, breathing but not surviving. I am Phoenix De Lange, son to a murdered mob boss, estranged brother, horrible friend, monster in the making, newest leader to one of the most powerful families in the Cosa Nostra.
And I will have my vengeance.
Or die trying.
I am Phoenix De Lange.
Death is all I know.
Until she offers me a piece of life–I can’t resist taking. 


5 STARS!!!!


WHAT?! ME?! NO WAY!!! (sneakily wipes tears away) 

I hated Phoenix. I really did. He was evil and I wanted him to die; but not anymore. I started feeling sorry for him in previous books, but now I just straight up love him. He did a lot of twisted things, but it wasn’t his choice. He lost himself along the way. 

Phoenix is now the new boss of the Nicolasis, he has a nice fancy car, and he’s been given a second chance; but he’s still miserable because the guilt is consuming him. 

Bee is finally free, but she has no idea what to do with her freedom. She has one friend that doesn’t even like her most of the time. Phoenix. But he does like her. He just can’t. 

I loved how Bee helped Phoenix with everything. She was so supportive of him and she truly believed in him. Phoenix needed someone to believe in him. Everyone always assumed the worst of him, which I cannot really blame them for, but not Bee. She only saw the good in Phoenix, and he saw that she really did believe in him. That’s when he started to heal.

I enjoyed every single page of this book. I never wanted it to end. I always get lost in Rachel Van Dyken books. 

Sergio’s book. I cannot wait for his story OMG that sneak peak was CRUEL. I just want him to be happy. Please let him be happy.
