Review: Enrage by Rachel Van Dyken


The Cover: I think Enrage‘s cover is very dark and foreboding, which is perfect for a crime, mafia romance book. The cover model is staring down the viewer which is perfect because he reminds me of Dante, the main book boyfriend of Enrage. A+

Basics: Enrage was released on July 31st 2017, published by EverAfter Romance and is 450 pages long. Genre wise Enrage belongs to: crime, mafia, dark romance, contemporary romance and standalone. It is the eighth book of the Eagle Elite series but again can be read as a standalone.

Description:  The next book in the international bestselling Eagle Elite Series. Complete Stand Alone.

I’m. In. Hell. Also known as the Cosa Nostra.
I wish I would have known–that my life was over the minute I stepped off the plane.

Son to a murdered mob boss. Heir to a throne of murder and lies.
My name is Dante Nicolasi.
And there will be blood.

Overall thoughts: Enrage was my first read of the Eagle Elite series but I figured since it was a standalone I would be able to follow the story and characters pretty well. But that really wasn’t the case because I did have a bit of a hard time piecing together what was going on. Clearly with a crime/mafia romance it’s going to be a bit darker than the usual contemporary romance books I’ve read before, which is fine because I’ve read darker contemporary romances before and enjoyed them. A lot. But Enrage was hard for me to follow and honestly…El and Dante drove me up the wall. I usually LOVE the angsty type of couples, you know the typical will they or won’t they couples. But these two drove me bananas for some reason. I loved their chemistry and both of their stories and how they finally came together but there was just something missing me for. I liked Enrage but didn’t love it like I usually do with all of Rachel Van Dyken’s other books. But it is definitely a must read for any Rachel Van Dyken fan so check it out!
