RELEASE BLITZ & 4 1/2 STAR REVIEW: Elite by Carrie Aarons

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?

My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.

I really liked Eloise in Privileged, so I was super happy that she was getting her own book. In this book, we find Eloise in Vermont where she is spending the semester. She was desperate for a change and was determined to find it there. And while she was looking for a change, she definitely wasn't look for a boyfriend. But that is what she gets when she meets Colton. Colton is the golden boy on campus. He is THE star on the school's basketball team and is used to get getting what he wants. 

He meets Eloise one night and immediately taken with her. She is different than the rest of the girls on campus and like just Eloise, he is ready for a change. I loved Eloise made Colton work a little. She was wary about starting something, but she could not resist his charms. And I don't really blame her. He was the absolute sweetest. They both had some preconceived notions about the other person, but it didn't take long for those to be shattered and realize their lives were about to change. 

I really enjoyed this book. There are a couple secondary story lines that are important to the whole picture, but for me, this book is about Eloise and Colton. Once I started reading, I could not stop. They were perfect for each other and I found myself wanting more of them. 

And a little added bonus: We get some Nora and Asher in this book, which I absolutely loved.
