"You love a person for who they are, embracing what they've been and hoping for what they'll become."
Ember held a much different feel from the previous books in the series. While it did have a romantic aspect, it felt much more like a tale of redemption. Where the previous books had a lot of the family workings and the individual relationships within the larger group, Ember genuinely felt like Phoenix's book. While I loved each one, the other books could have been anyone's story but with different names. Ember stayed true to the character that we have come to know. It forced Phoenix to confront every single one of his demons and I thought it was done quite eloquently.
"Everyone loves a bit of darkness - until it consumes them."
I think it would be hard not to develop a soft spot for Phoenix after reading Ember. He really stepped up to the plate in all aspects and very much allowed himself to be painted in a new light. I admired that he wanted to redeem himself in the eyes of his friends, even if he didn't believe he could be. There was something so complex that came out about his persona in Ember. Every time Rachel writes a female in this series, I find myself telling me she is my favorite and Bee is no exception. She was vulnerable and insecure, but never stopped seeing the good in people, particularly Phoenix. When he pushed, she pushed harder. When he gave up, she believed enough for both of them. Her character became the perfect complement to Phoenix.
"It was getting harder and harder to ignore her warmth - when I lived in a constant state of near-death cold."
Overall, I really did enjoy this installment of the Eagle Elite series! There were a couple twists that kept you on the edge of your seat and definitely some romance to keep your heart swooning. I don't know that I will ever be ready for this series to end. It's one that keeps branching off, leading me to want everyone's story. However, I'm glad it won't be ending anytime soon and I'm super excited to get Sergio's story next!
Ever since Phoenix was left out the the Elect, I was anticipating his story very much and Rachel did justice to my imagination on how his story had played out. For me, Ember was a little lighter than the previous books. Bee was such a breath of fresh air. She is so innocent, alive, fun and carefree. Her character was very perfect being a freshman on the mafia world.
Bee's light had complemented Phoenix's dark. When I thought Phoenix's demons will be hard to infiltrate through, Bee made it look easy peasy. Though Phoenix resisted with all his might, he just couldn't withstand Bee's constant cuteness. Bee's trust had made my heart ached so much. It was her most precious characteristic that was perfect to crumble Phoenix's walls.
"I believe in you, she blurted, tears in her eyes. "I just... I want you to know that despite everything... I believe in you."
Love so hot. Despite everything that had went on the mafia family in this book, Bee and Phoenix chemistry withstand them all. Scorching, hot love between them was very present and Phoenix will surely make a run for Nixon, Chase and Tex's money.
"I don't do warm fuzzies."
Well, we can't win 'em all.
"I do scorching blazes," he muttered under his breath. "That sear you alive."
Rachel Van Dyken never fails to make her readers beg for another book, and another, and another. And with all the twists and turns, I think it's safe to say that no one can stop her in writing more amazing books for this story, can we?
This book continues where elicit and bang bang ended. It now focuses on Phoenix and Bee. Phoenix now is the head of the nicolasi family and all the secrets Luca knew are now passed on to him. Phoenix believes he isn’t worthy of anything and in bee’s eyes he’s worth everything. Bee is the sister the capo. She had a rough live and her father was horrible to her. Phoenix saved and protected her from her father. We don’t get to know much about her past, which is a shame, I would like to find out more. Anyhow, even though she had a rough childhood she is still a funny, energetic, smart, sassy person. I think she is one of my favorites in this series. She and Chase are seriously the funny ones. Bee’s relentless in her pursuit after phoenix, she pushes his buttons like no other, teases him, forces him to eat, tricks him and she sees the good in him when nobody does, but she’s also very insecure. Phoenix on the other hand is trying very hard to push her away, to keep her from his cursed self but even he has his limits.
What do I love about this book.
I Just love phoenix. I really feel for him and I really believe he is much more than he thinks he is. I’m happy to see he found love and forgiveness is in his life. I think that the person he was, was created out of the horrible circumstances he grew up in. I really loved there story and I hope to see more of them in Elude. I’m curious about Sergio and Andi’s story, because andi seems like an very interesting person. Oh Andi is from a Russian mob family, she worked for Luca.
This story changed, it’s really maturing. It still has the bad ass mafia business going on but you can tell that the characters aged and things are getting more serious.
Quotes from the book:
But want didn’t really belong in my vocabulary anymore – Phoenix

"Didn’t I tell you to make friends?" " Found a squirrel in the parking lot. Does that count?" "That depends. Did it talk to you? Offer you his nuts?" - Bee and Phoenix
"This is your Everest. We all have them. We all struggle.?But that doesn’t make you any less intelligent. It makes you different. Don’t let the thing that terrifies you overcome you so much that you can’t even take a bite. So we start slow. We start at the beginning. And eventually, you’ll be able to eat the whole plate, or in your case, finish every problem. You helped me with lasagna, I’ll help you with this". “because I fed you? “ No, Because you where the only one who even recognized I was hungry” - Bee and Phoenix
“Bee he growled. “if you aren’t here in five seconds I’m going to –“ “Spank me? Mud wrestle until I say uncle?” - Bee and Phoenix
"The prince doesn’t turn into a prince, and the beast doesn’t turn back human, Bee. That’s not how life really works". “I don’t mind frogs, beast are kind of scary… but can be tamed too” “Is that your way of saying you can tame me?” Aw you need a safe word. It can be bird you know, because of your name and all” - Bee and Phoenix
It broke my heart, absolutely shattered every part of me, that the only time I’d seen him truly at peace was in the moment when he was asking for his own death
"I believe in you. I just.. I want you to know that despite everything… I believe in you. That’s all" - Bee
“Taking advantage of you with my eyes .What does it look like I’m doing?” - Bee
