Review : Empire by Rachel Van Dyken

*** ARC provided in exchange for an honest review ***

Wow ! Rachel Van Dyken does it again with Empire ! Empire is part of the Eagle Elite series and while you can read the books as standalones , it helps if you have read Elude before Empire as you have more of the story and understand Empire better .

Ms . Van Dyken knows how to write a beautiful story that can take you through all the emotions . There are ups and downs on this journey but it is so worth it !

After unfortunate events , I don't want to give too much away if you haven't read Elude or Empire , Sergio gets a second chance . Being part of a mob family , Sergio's choices are not always his own . He has to put his mob families' needs ahead of his own.  We see the struggle in Sergio as he faces many things and tries to deal with them .

Sergio's story is heartbreaking and beautiful all rolled in one . Ms . Van Dyken has excellent character and story development .  

This was a book I couldn't put down . I couldn't turn the pages fast enough . I was laughing and crying and needed my Kleenex at all times .  I would recommend this book and this series to anyone hands down ! Grab it today , you won't be sorry !
