Blurb


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?

Carrie Aarons is one of my favorite contemporary romance authors. Eloise and Colton were a fun couple. They are living in a world of the wealthy and, for the lack of a better word, elite. I’ll tell you it’s a bit hard and suffocating to hear how wonderful they all are the entire book. However, Eloise and Colton made this book!!! The heiress meets college basketball star! While Eloise takes a break from her high life, she ends up right in the same lifestyle at the college. But being Eloise and Colton work together to fix their problems. They are a lovely couple and I just loved how they really work together to overcome their problems. 

Normally, Carrie is a 5 Star author for me. This one was so close and really it could be there. There was a bit of suspense added to Elite. I loved it. I think Carrie could have done something really special with this book. It would have made this book more of a romantic suspense instead of a new adult or contemporary romance. I didn’t feel like this suspense area was closed successfully. After reading this, I’m really hoping that Carrie gives us a real romantic suspenseful book.

Carries writing was fantastic as usual. Her characters are interesting and unique. Not all of them are likable, but really, not all people are likable!! I really enjoyed Colton and Eloise together. I’ll continue to watch for Carrie Aarons books as well as the next installment of the Privileged series!!


I received an ARC of this book with the hop that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that… my opinions.
