A mafia romance about family, loyalty, and love, Dissolution is the powerful conclusion to #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken's Eagle Elite series.
"There is always a beginning—I will be their end."
For ten years the Cosa Nostra has ruled with an iron fist in Chicago—their reign is about to end, and I'll be the one to bring them down.
One more job for the Italian Americans, and I'm done.Except this "one job" involves saving the boss's brother and sister.When things go horribly wrong, and a price is put on all of our heads from my Family back home—I'm forced to stay in Chicago, offer not just my gun but my protective services to the young girl I saved while also making sure nobody touches her.Myself included.
My own Family has splintered.Half want me dead, half want me alive, and the only people willing to protect me are the very ones I hate—her included.
I'm the Grim Reaper of the Sicilian mafia, and I bow to no one, not even her, so when she asks me to teach her to fight, when she tells me she wants to be made, I give in just so I can piss off the bosses.Only I made one mistake.
I protect her from the world.But who protects me from her?
One more battle remains between the families in Italy and in the States.One more battle where I'm torn between both sides.And I'm left protecting the one girl who has the potential to wreck us all.
It all started a decade ago at Eagle Elite University—the beginning.It will end on the streets of Chicago—with me as the end.
I, Santino Sinacore, am their end.
**This may be the end of the OG Eagle Elite, but it is NOT the end of the Eagle Elite World!**

Dissolution is the final book in the original Eagle Elite series. If you haven’t read this series, you are missing out. When I first discovered them years ago, I went on a major binge and have devoured each book that has released since. While Dissolution is the final in the original series, it isn’t the end of Eagle Elite, and that makes me happy.

This book did not always make me happy. There are some super sad parts that had me in tears. Not as bad as some other books in the series, but still emotional. Katya and Santino have a beautiful love story. And the piece de resistance is seeing all the original couples. This book is a swan song of sorts; a way to send off the original crew. The original crew is great at adding levity to the story with their crazy antics and it made this book feel like a comforting place.

While this is goodbye to the original crew, it isn’t the end of Eagle Elite, and for that I am so grateful. I have always loved these books. Santino and Katya were a perfect final story and I am just thrilled with it.
