Elite (Elite Eagle #1) by Rachel Van Dyken ~ Book #Review

Title: Elite (Elite Eagle #1)
Publish Date: July 9, 2013


When I won the annual Eagle Elite College Scholarship lottery, I was thrilled. After all, my grandma had just died and I wanted to take care of my aging grandpa -- he couldn't be a farmer in Wyoming forever. And graduating from Eagle Elite meant opportunity.
But I wasn't counting on meeting Nixon.

Nor was I counting on the rules of the Elect.

1. Do not touch The Elect.

2. Do not look at The Elect.

3. Do not speak to The Elect.

And worst of all? Don't discover the secret they hide, because in the end, you may just realize... it's about you.

My Thoughts

Where do I start? I have to start by saying it is a good thing that the sequel to this book comes out this year and it is already the end of August. I loved this book from start to finish.

I started reading this without knowing what is was about at all and was completely thrown about halfway through when Trace's relationships with the kids from school started to take a turn. Trace had a very emotional time starting her Freshman year at the Elite college. For her being a farm girl and her being thrown into a school full of rich snotty kids I think she did better than I expected.

I was hoping for maybe a relationship between Trace and Chase but I will never tell if that is where things ended in this book, all I will say is that I had a real problem putting this book down during the day and a half that it took me to read it.

This is a new author for me and I look forward to reading more books by Rachel Van Dyken.

*This is a New Adult Book, blood, violence, cursing, sexual references, and drug use. Not recommended for those under 17.*
