Elect by Rachel Van Dyken (Eagle Elite #2)

This book was provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
You can find my review of the first book HERE
What I thought of the Cover:
My thoughts on this cover pretty much stay the same. The models look nothing like the characters are portrayed in the book. Which is ok I suppose but it tends to frustrate me since when I read I often match faces to the models on the cover. I do like the dynamic the models have on this cover though. That deffinetley fits the mood of the book. It just makes me wonder who would fit it best.

    Would you die for the one you love?
Nixon Abandonato made his choice. And now he has to pay the price. Tracey is the love of his life, but being with him has made her a target of his family's enemies. The only way to keep Trace alive is convince the world she means nothing to him.

Trace Rooks has fallen irrevocably in love with the son of her family's sworn rival, and she knows in her bones nothing can tear them apart. Until Nix suddenly pushes her away and into the arms of his best friend... But Trace isn't ready to give up on a future with Nix--and if he won't fight for them, she will.

In the end, a sacrifice must be made. A life for a life. For what better way to cover a multitude of sins than with the blood of a sinner . . 

I am not sure if I liked this book better then the first or not. It is definitely a good book and I won't lie, i just about died from happiness when I got approved to review the book early because I had been dying to find out what happens next in the young mafia members life. This time the story was told from the point of views of the males, three to be precise, between Phoenix,who I had come to hate due to the first book, all the way to Chase in the love triangle he had been forced into for the most part. So I am going to take it piece by piece with my thoughts on characters.

Starting out with Phoenix, his point of view was usually a few pages, keeping it short and simple but it definitely got it directly to the point, yet it gives such an insight into his thoughts and brings up the quote that you never can judge a book by its cover. It is so easy to hate a character without really knowing what is really going on behind the scens in their head so I loved that it gave a peek into how his life had been, I actually started to feel bad for him towards the end of the book.

Chase, oh what can I say for my man Chase. I have been on team Chase from the beginning, I loved him being a smart ass, he was that comedic relief the book needed. This time around however I found myself sighing and rolling my eyes when it came to his points, he was just so sappy and love sick as he tried to figure out where he and Trace stood in the love life.

Nixon, he just stopped seeming like such a bad ass, he was so consumed with this girl it seemed to take away from him. I did like how smart he was when searching for the answers and finding proof that he wanted .

The plot twist in this book was seen a mile away, which did not bother me because I loved how they went about finding the proof to support the plot twist. It was not just thrown in there it was actually dug up and we got to go along as piece by piece of dirt was uncovered and lives where changed.

The only thing I hated about this book was how consumed everyone seemed to be with Trace, It was like she was the air that they breathed. Even in real life I can't stand when people are like that.

I loved the new girl Mil though, she makes me happy and I look forward to reading more of her story.  
5 out of 5 Stars!
