Elite by Rachel Van Dyken

18170509For Tracey Rooks, life with her grandparents on a Wyoming farm has always been simple. But after her grandmother's death, Tracey is all her grandfather has. So when Eagle Elite University announces its annual scholarship lottery, Tracey jumps at the opportunity to secure their future and enters. She isn't expecting much-but then she wins. And life as she knows it will never be same . . .

The students at Eagle Elite are unlike any she's ever met . . . and they refuse to make things easy for her. There's Nixon, gorgeous, irresistible, and leader of a group that everyone fears: The Elect. Their rules are simple. 1. Do not touch The Elect. 2. Do not look at The Elect. 3. Do not speak to The Elect. No matter how hard she tries to stay away, The Elect are always around her and it isn't long until she finds out the reason why they keep their friends close and their enemies even closer. She just didn't realize she was the enemy -- until it was too late. 

My Thoughts on the Book

This book was great but not at all what I expected. As a reader you are completely in the dark for the first third of the book, you may start to get a picture of what is going on but it is still very unclear and captivating at the same time. This book is fast paced, the boys are dangerous, protective, sometimes mean and completely irresistible. I loved the story and it is a very different sub genre then I usually read but this book is hard to put down. My only minor complaint is that I wish the book was longer so that the story could have been built up and developed a bit more, it is such a great story I just wanted more of it.
