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.

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book. In fact I read this book in seven hours!! It grabbed my attention right from the prologue and held it all the way until the end. There were always questions going through my head like when, where, how, how come, why, and I just had to keep reading until I found my answers. This book would answer one question at one point but leave the others until later one. Revealing just a little at a time.

I love Trace. She was a love struck girl. I remember my first love struck stupid self. I acted probably a lot like Trace. I believe we all act stupid the first time we fall in love. Thinking it is everything and without that boy we are nothing.

Nixon is a classic tough guy with a tender private side. Everyone seems to be attracted to that bad boy image. It seems it’s almost natural.

Final Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book. I will definitely recommend this book to my friends. I can’t wait to read the second one!
