Review! Elite By Rachel Van Dyken

For 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.

I read Elite a few years back and decided to do a reread. Nothing else was holding my attention and there is something about this series that I can’t get enough of.  When I realized I never actually reviewed it I found this the perfect time to do so.  I think it is because I love the asshole hero character and the sassy heroine who stands up to him and has him on his knees.  Add in a certain element that I personally love and this book whore is in heaven. And while this book has been out for a while I won’t ruin what that additional element is, you have to find out for yourself if you haven’t already read Elite. You don’t talk to the Elect, you don’t touch the Elect, and you sure as hell don’t ever fuck with the Elect.

Trace and Nixon these two circle each other’s atmospheres.  The chemistry between them is undeniable, even when Nixon is making Trace’s life hell he can’t help but protect her at the same time.  Confusing?  Maybe just a tad bit but the more you get into the storyline the more you learn and the more your eyes open to what is going on and what secrets are revealed.  More than once did I want to beat Nixon, Chase, Tex and Phoenix with a bat for how they treated Trace, especially Phoenix, and I think you will want to do the same when you read it.  Mo, Nixon’s sister was the perfect balance to Nixon’s asshole tendencies. 

If you are looking for a college romance that is so much more than just that, one filled with secrets, lies, truths, and oaths, characters that you find yourself loving even when you should hate them and a book that will  have you hooked almost immediately, well then Elite is the one for you. I think an entire series reread is in order.
