Vic is the bodyguard for five families and is sworn to protect them with everything he is, no distractions, but he can't keep his eyes of the nanny, Renee, when Renee's life is in danger and he has to keep an eye on her and protect her as well, things get interesting, especially when there are secrets surrounding her. Nixon warns Vic away from her and to just protect her, and won't let Vic tell her the secrets surrounding her, or her father, but it kills him to keep things from her. Needless to say things heat up between Renee and Vic and I loved the back and forth between them and how tortured Vic was with his choice between Renee and his duty between family. He knew what he needed to do, but he didn't want to have to make the choices he had to make.
The way this book played out, and the secrets surrounding Renee were definitely interesting and opened up a lot of new doors for this series, and I can't wait to see how this book and new characters tie in to upcoming books in the series. I am a huge fan of this series and have loved it from the very beginning and this was a perfect addition to add new characters, and hopefully new readers. Rachel Van Dyken has definitely done it again, and if you're a lover of the series, or wanting to see what this is all about, definitely grab your copy of Envy today!
This story is about Vic, the body guard, and Renee, the nanny for the toddlers of two of the bosses of the five families. It's well worth the read.
My suggestion would be to read the Eagle Elite series in order starting from the beginning with Elite. This series is one of the best and although each book can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend for your reading pleasure that you start from the beginning. The first couple of books may seem upper YA, but they grow in maturity, sexual encounters, and violence over the series. Reading the Eagle Elite series has been an unforgettable, emotional roller coaster ride that I'm glad I've ridden. Catch it from the start!
Envy is filled with action, drama, sexy times and it's fair share of darkness. The chemistry between Vic and Renee flies off the page at you and it's hard to believe that these two have been able to keep their hands to themselves at all! You completely understand the circumstances that Vic is fighting against, but you also feel for both of them as you can just see the pull between them. It's almost like they are magnets and they just *need* to be with one another.
This was once of those books that I didn't want to put down and I never knew what was going to happen next, which just added to the edge of my seat feelings I had while moving through this book. RVD never fails to deliver and this was no exception. I can't wait for the next book in this awesome series!
Vic Colezan took an oath. He took an oath to put the families safety before his own. Vic has been able to easily keep that oath. It helps with his focus, it helps with the darkness within him, and it keeps the people he cares about safe. Until that very oath brings him the one thing he can’t have. Vic, oh my dear Vic, he was something special. Rachel created a character that I feel in love with from the very start. He’s loyal, brooding, violent, and just a little scary. She cements that all for us but then she will give us moments that show us his humor, his softer side, and how fiercely he loves. It’s hard to have a series this long and create characters that do no bleed into each other, but Rachel does it. She has managed to create another male lead that is all his own. He has his own flaws, his own fears, and his own personality. The only thing they all have in common is their loyalty to the Mafia and the love they have for their women.
Renee is the nanny. She was taught to keep her head down and watch the Mob Boss’s children until she could escape this life and move on. Renee never saw what was coming for her and she definitely didn’t see Vic coming either. Renee was an iffy character for me in the beginning, but she grew on me. She seemed a little naïve, but I guess a few of the girls in this series start out that way. I know its normal to be repulsed and afraid of Made men but because I’m not normal hearing her disapproval, dislike, and fear of Vic and the other members bothered me. But like I said Renee grew on me, she won’t go up on my favorite female leads list, but I didn’t hate her. I had to keep reminding myself that while she grew up in this life she never wanted it. Once she gave in and really started to get to know Vic and see passed his darkness I accepted her into the Eagle Elite world. Then the end chapter really solidified it for me.
I have to admit I fell away from the Eagle Elite series for a while. This was my first new EE book and I can’t believe I ever put them down. Rachel Van Dyken creates books that first rip your soul out and then stitch it back together again. I really didn’t think I would find another EE book that would hurt my soul so good like Tex’s book, but I think I may have found it. Rachel creates such unique characters. We are now 9.5 books in and each character is different. Each one comes with their own story. How does one person come up with so many different characters and create such an interact story. Let me repeat that we are 9.5 books in and the EE world is still going. The story is still unfolding, the characters are still growing, and the family only gets bigger. I haven’t been bored yet and I keep getting surprised. Rachel Van Dyken grabs you by the face and doesn’t let go until you are begging for me.
Be ready. If you start this series, it’s Blood In. No Out.

Eagle Elite is up there as being one of my all time favorite series and I have to say this was another great installment and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
This is a Mafia book so as you can imagine it's packed full of secrets and lies and the intrigue of it all had me flying through the pages to see how everything was going to unfold. There were a few moments where I really didn't know where RVD was going to take us and to say my heart was in my mouth while reading would be an understatement.
The sexual chemistry between Vic and Renee was off the charts and I love how RVD is getting a little bit more risque with these stories. I really liked this couple but for me I would have loved to see a little bit more build up between them earlier on (albeit this is a long novella so I get the word constraints).
Action packed, dramatic, sexy, witty, dark, dangerous are just some of the adjectives that come to mind - RVD delivers once again with this book and I can't wait for the next one.
I was provided with a copy of the book from the Publisher; there was no inducement or obligation and I opted to leave a review.
I love this mafia family, they are seriously insane, how they haven't accidentally killed each other by now I'm really not sure. Would love to be a fly on the wall at their family dinners. They tell each other off and make them contribute to the money jar for swearing, as they want to tone it down for the kids, yet they wave guns and knifes around without a care!!
Renee is the nanny for families kids, they have strategically moved her into Nixon's house without really saying why. She is afraid of the bosses even though she has been around the Mafia life her whole life. Vic, the enforcer, both intrigues and scares her. He always has this intimidating aura around him, he is dark and brooding and he awakens confidence and a need in Renee. She just has to make him forget his oath and break down his walls. Once she does oh how my kindle was burning hot!!
After the last book and now this one, I am completely intrigued by Andrei, he is so sad and drowning in the darkness. I know I should hate him but there is something about him that calls to me.
I couldn’t put it down this author is truly gifted in the way she captures you you fall In love with every one of her characters
Renee the elite children’s nanny and Vic the self mademan are not meant to be together he is meant to keep her safe but you can’t help your feelings
Go read the full series you will not be disappointed if I could give it more than 5 stars I would
The Made Man and the Nanny
Loving the Eagle Elite series from Rachel Van Dyken. This is an insight, taster standalone from Rachel together with 1001 Dark Nights.
Renee knows the rules of the mafia. She's grown up in the life. All she wants is to get through the summer nannying for the biggest mafia families before going back to school.
But Vic, cousin, bodyguard, made man, assassin to Nixon is a scary distraction. Complication, he's taken an unbreakable oath to protect the families. He really needs to stay away from Renee.
Until she finds out the truth about why she's really under Nixons roof.
Feeling betrayed by them, she runs and gets into a bit of trouble.
Can Vic get to her in time?
