Title: Elite
A Privileged Novel
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: February 18, 2018 


A PRIVILEGED standalone, get ready for secret societies, international romance, and college debauchery…
If you’re in, you’ll never have to ask. If you ask, you’ll never be in.

Eloise Mason knows what it’s like to live among the privileged. Seeking a change from the upper crust society of Europe, she flies halfway across the world for a semester abroad in the one place guaranteed to toss responsibility out the window and provide some good, old-fashioned fun; college in The United States.

Except nothing at the picturesque, Ivy-covered university in Vermont appears as it seems. And after a mysterious invitation arrives on her doorstep, curiosity wins over the need to turn her back on games meant for the rich and ruthless.

Secret societies, risky tasks, and an inner circle to rival the royals. But it may just be one American boy who threatens to be the most dangerous endeavor of all.

Colton Reiter defines the word idolized at Jade Mountain University. In fact, he practically rules the roost from the three point line of the basketball court. The college’s star point guard, he is a god and treated as such; professional scouts at every game, teachers looking the other way when it comes to grades, and girls falling into his lap at the snap of a finger. He wants for nothing, or at least that’s what he wants everyone to believe.

But when he meets the sassy girl with the British accent who could care less about his status, her very existence threatens to unveil the skeletons buried deep in the back of his closet.

With stakes this high, and hearts on the line, can they turn their backs on power and popularity before the ivory tower comes crashing down on their heads?

What a great freaking read!!!! I loved this book. The tension passion and angst had me completely captivated. The characters although college age were super mature and not petty. This made me love the book so much more.

There is some serious stuff going on in this book and I couldn’t wait to get to the end to see how it all played out. The pages were flipping like crazy for me today.

Great read! I can’t wait to see what happens with the next Carrie read for sure.

The blurb and cover sucked me right in with this one. A secret society and the whole if you’re in then you’re part of the most Elite group on campus and if you’re not? Well, you’ll soon find out what happens when you dive into the story.

“If you’re in, you’ll never have to ask. If you ask, you’ll never be in.”

Eloise knows what it like to be at the top of the privileged circle and to be the girl everyone wants to be around. Power, privilege and a ton of money. But she also knows what it’s like to not to have all those things. Needing to find herself and take a break from Europe’s top culinary school Eloise decides to take a year and head to study in America. She lands herself at Jade Mountain University in Vermont. All she was looking for was a normal year, but when a mysterious invite appears in her dorm room, that normal year she had planned? Yeah, well that flies right out the window.

“I’m not prepared for the gorgeous wall of man meat standing in front of me. Taller than London Bridge and built like a Michelangelo statue on steroids. If I was considering strapping suitors, this one would make the cut.”

Colton Reiter is the “it” guy at Jade Mountain, the basketball god that every female on campus wants. But when he sets his sights on the spunky, smart mouthed and beautiful Eloise he isn’t letting her go. He loves that Eloise doesn’t care who he is and she loves that he can just be real with her. But is he? What happens when the person you trust the most has the biggest secret to hide? This book is filled with mystery, secret societies, love and whole boatload of drama.

“I’m not looking for anything, and yet, it seems Eloise Mason was sent here specifically to change my mind on that.”

This is my first read by this author and I had no idea going in that this was the second book in the series. It says it can be read as a stand alone and it read that way to me. So there were a lot of things I really liked about this book and honestly some things I just didn’t. I loved the relationship between Eloise and Colton, they were both great characters. I loved the whole idea of this book but there was just so much going on, at times it was just way too much and I feel like the development in some parts was lacking. Overall though I loved the main characters and it was a good read. I do look forward to reading more from this author.
