Elite by Rachel Van Dyken

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.

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

Tifferz Take~
This is the best written book I have read all year!!!! I am totally obsessing about this book. It would make an awesome movie. I found a connection with Trace instantly! She doesn't let people walk all over her. She speaks her mind and she is feisty but naive and I would not have her any other way. Trace has flaws like all of us and I think that made her more real to me. I will be honest I did not like Nixon, Chase, Tex or Phoenix right off the bat. It took awhile for them to grow on me. I loved Monroe!!! She is so good and nice just what Trace needed in a roommate! She takes Trace under her wing.

Trace really goes through a lot of crap. I was glad Nixon mad things right. He is not perfect and has flaws and a past to overcome. Some of my favorite scenes are the shopping trip and picnic! They were so thoughtful and they really made me smile. I won't lie I did like the car chase. It was thrilling.

I will tell you all I had no idea what I was getting into with this book and I LOVED IT and am OBSESSED with it! I can not get it out of my head. I don't want it out of my head. I think I will die waiting til book two comes out in November. If you read this story you need to make sure you will not have any interruptions. This story has romance, mystery, tragedy, heart wrenching events and so many funny moments. I had moments I was sitting on the edge of my chair and moments that had me cracking up! To be honest I have not felt so many emotions reading a book in so long. This story made me want to jump inside and be a part of it! Elite is original and THE BEST BOOK I HAVE READ THIS YEAR SO FAR!

Just FYI~ does not contain any sex but does have~ blood, violence, cursing, sexual references, and drug use. Not recommended for those under 17.

OH. MY. WORD. I should have known better than to pick up a Rachel Van Dyken book to read at night. I stayed up until 1:30 A.M. to finish! Because I literally could NOT STOP READING!!!! I kept thinking, just one more chapter...that didn't happen! This story was literally a roller coaster ride that I didn't want to end! In fact, I need the next book, like last night at 1:30, hint hint Rachel! The characters were amazing, I loved Trace from the beginning, she had spunk that I admired and Nixon I loved to hate...until I got to know him! Chase and Monroe, Tex and Phoenix, they were all different and fun as well. I felt like I was a part of the Elite world that Rachel Van Dyken created. This book seriously had me crying (I don't cry easily), laughing out loud and scared as heck. I loved the mystery and trying to put all of the pieces together. I am going to read this book again...tonight! I know, but it was that fabulous! I promise this book will exceed your expectations and leave you wanting more....a whole lot more! Hurry Rachel (PLEASE) because I am dying right now, and I need more Trace, Nixon, Monroe, Grandpa, Chase and Tex. I cannot get this world out of my head, it was so realistically created! The story keeps re-playing in my mind like a movie. BEST BOOK I HAVE READ THIS YEAR! Can I give a book ten stars? I want to, but five is the max so five bright shiny stars for an awesome read!!!

I was lucky and received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review. I would have gladly paid for this book!

Rating: Cussing, violence, sexual references.
