#NewRelease #Reviews ELITE by Carrie Aarons @GiveMeBooksBlog @AuthorCarrieA

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


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?

Lie with dogs and you get fleas.
Made your bed, now sleep in it.

There a tons of ways to say that what goes around comes back around. The sassy Brit chick has plenty to say to the ridiculously gorgeous piece of man meat in front of her, if only she could reel her tongue in long enough to do so. If you loved that Nora had a decent friend in Privileged, you will love knowing that this is Eloise's time to shine. (Though we see Nora..and perhaps her adorable, reformed bad boy too.)

Looking for a diversion, Eloise flees the pressure of the Sorbonne for an American college experience. Though I don't recall a Slurpee
 scene at Wawa's, Eloise lives it up in the small college town. Even so much as to snare the attention of the local athletic "god", Colton.

These two are bound to happen. They are fighting a losing battle and when they break boy is that hot!!!

Elite is just as much backstabbing drama as Privileged but with a Skulls vibe to it. (Apparently, 90s movies make better books, though Joshua Jackson and Paul Walker made me love that movie.)It's fun, feisty, and even a bit freaky....;) Elite is everything most people want to be. Isn't it?

If you loved Nora’s sidekick in the previous book you will be so happy because yes it’s Eloise’s turn and she doesn’t disappoint. 

I wanted a mean girls vibe with some hot college jocks thrown in and boy oh boy did the author deliver. 

Eloise wants an escape and decides to do the American college thing. I loved how she decided to go all in, the food, the men, the sorority. She is such a sassy chick I loved all the British sayings and her witty humour. 

Colton the campus hotshot has it all, good-looking, basketball god but don’t be fooled by the exterior because he has secrets and once those layers are pulled back we see a tender thoughtful young man.

Together the two of them are combustible but the relationship develops into something much deeper. The drama comes from outside influences which gave the mean girls vibe. 

I loved this story so much, this is fast turning out to be one of my favourite series.
