In a world of wealth and power, the rules of love and war
are nothing as they seem.
Nora Randolph never wanted a life of luxury. But when her
mother falls in love with the heir to the British throne, their small-town
lives are uprooted and every little girl’s fantasy becomes her reality. All too
quickly, she learns the dangers of running in circles with the world’s elite,
especially when she attracts the attention of Winston Academy’s resident golden
boy.
Asher Frederick has known nothing but favor and fortune.
The son of London’s most influential family, his future has been written in
stone since infancy. But a tragic childhood loss redirects his course, and
revenge has been boiling in his blood for years. When innocent and unaware Nora
lands in his path, it’s as if the universe hands him the ammunition to finally
drag his enemy through the mud.
But as his plan for vengeance gets more twisted, so do
his feelings for Nora. And as her immersion into the upper crust dives deeper,
she struggles to keep the secret she’s been guarding for eighteen years.
Heavy lies the crown, and when the ultimate betrayal
blindsides her, will either of them survive the consequences that come crashing
down on their heads?

Nora Randolph wasn’t looking for a life of privilege. When her mother gets engaged to a guy in line for the British throne, she’s thrown into a world where it’s sink or swim. Asher Frederick is from a very influential British family but a tragedy during his childhood has made him out for revenge. Will Nora be collateral damage when Asher finally ruins a man who destroyed his family?

“Simpler times are over, and this is our reality. It may be a privileged, beautiful one, but I know it will be complicated and flawed.”

This almost reminded me of that movie Cruel Intentions where teens from well to do families are manipulative spoiled brats. Nora, an American, has found herself attending a posh British school for her senior year where the students are basically elitist jerks. Asher seems to be the leader of this gang and for some reason ends up her frenemy. I did like the gradual thawing out of Nora and do think she grew as a person since she moved to London. I was truly pleased to see her come out of her shell. Asher was basically a broken young man and as much as Nora’s walls came down….I’d like to think Asher’s did as well. I just wanted to see that there was more to Asher’s friends than just being jaded and frivolously skating through their lives with no real substance.

If you like movies like Cruel Intention and young adult stories, you will really enjoy Privileged. It’s all of the angst and attraction and new found money rolled up into a great big ball of suspense…waiting for that shoe to drop.
