Enrage by Rachel Van Dyken Review


5 Smooches

a5 a4 a3 a2 a1


Part of a world I loathe.
Part of a family who hates me more than I hate myself.
Living with a girl who reminds me of my darkness.
I’m. In. Hell.
Also known as the Cosa Nostra.
My life was over the minute I stepped off that 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.


What can I say about this amazing book? While this could be a standalone I do HIGHLY recommend reading the others first, each book just adds to the large and detailed mob-centric world Rachel has created. If you go into this as a standalone there will be spoilers of previous books. You’ve been warned.

I desperately want to talk about parts of the plot of this book  . . . but I can’t and it’s killing me. I want to rant, I want to rave, and mostly I want to come up with a million different conspiracy theories that would have you realizing just how crazy I am. But to do that I would have to give too much away so, sadly, I can’t. But let me tell you how this book made me feel. I was delighted by the connection I felt between Dante and El. Pain, I felt so much pain for the hell El has been through and the internal struggles Dante is constantly living with. Heat, wow were they how, enough said. Delight, when they finally realized what we all knew and stopped avoiding the unavoidable. Surprise, you’ll see. Anticipation and hope because Rachel has never let me down.

Now, I am fully aware that out of context none of that makes a damn bit of sense but just trust that Rachel Van Dyken is a phenomenal writer and she won’t let you down.
