Eulogy by Rachel Van Dyken Blog Tour

All is lost.

I don't recognize myself in the mirror anymore.
My thoughts are filled with hatred and dripping with rage.
I've lost my soul.
She took it to the depths of Hell with her and haunts me with images of what could have been.
Sixty lives are mine to take.
Sixty lives stand in the way of my vengeance.
Sixty lives plus one more.
When the last drop of blood falls — mine will be spilled.
Only one person stands in the way.
She doesn't realize I'll kill her too.
I don't own a heart.
And even if I did — I wouldn't fall prey to its lies again.
I am Chase Abandonato.
Heir to a legacy of betrayal.
And I will kill them all.
Even if it means pointing the gun at myself.
A life for a life.
A soul for a soul.

Now I lay me down to sleep… I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
Blood in. No out.

Eulogy is a stand alone mafia romance with dark themes, alpha males, violence, and enough humor woven in to make it so you don't want to hunt the author down when you finish. It is linked to the Eagle Elite series, any book can be read out of order, but will contain spoilers if you choose to take that path.
Enjoy, blood in no out!

It covered my hands.

It surged through my heart.

It dripped from my fingertips onto the concrete floor.





Insanity scratched its way into my psyche as I eyed the door and waited. One heartbeat, two heartbeats, three…

It opened.

I fired two rounds, and acrid smoke filled the air.

I thought I knew what love was. I was a fucking idiot. Every single bone in my body shuddered with rage, with the need to rip something apart, someone, anyone —all of them. My friends. My brothers. I brought the war to our house, and they would finish me because of it.

I’d thought I loved her.

Our love had been a lie.

Her betrayal my only truth.

And now?

Now, I finally knew what love was. I’d seen it, smelled it, tasted it.

And lost it.

I’d fucking lost it.

They would pay. They would all pay.

For taking her.

For turning her against me.

For making me believe that blood was everything, only after mine was spilled.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I have no idea how Rachel Van Dyken does it, but I feel like every time I review one of her books I start it out the same way – this was my favorite book of the year, possibly of all time, it’s AH-mazing. I don’t know what I’m going to do when this series ends, I just need it to go on forever! This can be read as a standalone, but don’t do that – go back and read them all from the beginning, you’ll thank me later!

We’ve seen a lot of Chase in previous books as he battled with accepting that Mil wasn’t who he’d always thought she was. Now, she’s dead and Chase is an absolute wreck (I’m going to compare his reactions to the Salvatore brother in VD when their humanity switches are flipped). His friends have done everything they can, but they can’t get the Chase they know and love back – he’s gone and in his place is a killing machine. Luciana is a lawyer who is in over her head with a boss whom she is afraid to defy – especially when he tells her she’s hired as the new “family lawyer.” Luciana is sent to live with Chase, only no one has told Chase and he isn’t exactly receptive to her arrival.

I just can’t applaud Rachel Van Dyken enough on the emotional rollercoaster she sends you on with this book. I feel like I hit rock bottom with Chase and then rode with him when Luciana is there to pick up the pieces. I literally couldn’t put this book down – I called in sick to work just so I could stay home and read it all in one day… shh! I’m already highly anticipating the next book from Rachel Van Dyken.

I have not read the previous books in this series and will admit that I had a tougher time than I think I would have if I had read the previous books.

This was a powerful story about revenge, grief, family, love, and forgiveness. The writing style was somewhat strange to get used to, but once you get in to the rhythm of the writing, it doesn't seem so choppy.

We watch as a family is forced to decide how to handle the betrayal from within, as well as the outside forces wanting to take over too. You have so many different characters vying for their own families, all while trying to figure out how to save the family they are all loyal to.

I really liked this story. It was gritty, had a great love story wrapped in the mystery of more family secrets.

Rachel Van Dyken is the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today Bestselling author of regency and contemporary romances. When she's not writing you can find her drinking coffee at Starbucks and plotting her next book while watching The Bachelor.

She keeps her home in Idaho with her Husband, adorable son, and two snoring boxers! She loves to hear from readers!
