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?

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

In Elite, Europe meets the US and what a meeting it is! Though we first meet Eloise in Privileged, this can truly be read as a standalone. Though I also recommend Privileged!

Eloise Mason is ready for a change of pace and believes heading abroad for a semester is just what she needs. She wants to have fun and leave the world she knows behind for a while.  But she learns quickly that though she may be miles away from home, things may not be that different after all.  Eloise was such a strong, fiery and independent woman and I loved that about her.

Colton Reiter rules Jade Mountain University. He is the king of the court both on and off the field. His future is all but set, but he also has secrets that could destroy everything. I loved Colton. He was strong, sexy and cocky but there is another side to him as well. One look at Eloise and he is hooked.

Eloise is so excited to be at Jade Mountain University and be away from the stress of life that is the high society she is from in Europe. Then she encounters Colton and all bets are off. Their chemistry is immediate and strong. I loved how good Eloise and Colton were together. They really lean on each other.

I enjoyed Elite very much. I found it to be a fun read with lots of chemistry and suspense thrown in. This story flowed so well and really kept me drawn in. Eloise and Colton had a great relationship with each other and I loved them as characters!
