Her life, after nannying for the five families for the summer, is set
Somebody should have told Vic Colezan that.

Good thing Vic has a firm hand.

Yes!! We’ve got a new novella from one of my favorite mafia series, Eagle Elite series. Envy follows Vic Colezan Abandonato, Nixon’s cousin. As the silent assassin, he swore an oath to protect his family and he never disobeyed it. Renee Cassini is his temptation. She’s a college student and the mafia families’ nanny for the summer. She has a crush on Vic but his lifestyle is completely different from hers. Normal and free from violence.
Vic and Renee’s undeniable attraction was forbidden. Vic is her bodyguard and Renee is betrothed to another powerful mafia family. Lines are blurring and nothing can stop these two from loving each other. I enjoyed this novella. It’s lighthearted and sweet. After these changes I wish Renee continues her studies. She’s young, smart and industrious. She has a bright future ahead.
Sidenote: I miss the entire mafia family. They’re protective with each other and their family dinners are hilarious! I miss Chase’s dark humor and of course my favorite, Sergio. I’m excited for the upcoming books in this series and I bet it’s Andrei Petrov’s turn.
