Publisher's Summary

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.

Bad narration

The narration was absolutely awful! One of the worst I've heard. I'm not sure where the surfer accents came from but they were a fail. The story was good although unrealistic to the extreme.

Whiny main character - no real tension

This appears to be the first of two novels. Elect and it follow-on Elite. I have listened only to Elite. Based upon the first novel, I can already predict the best thing that could have been done was to write one novel by crushing them together and then edit aggressively. I blame this on the publisher. The conflict escalates so slowly that you almost miss it. As filler, the author has to throw in much whiny dialog. She introduces a sub character at the beginning leading you to believe that she will play a big role and then she vanishes except for the last five minute entry.

The narrator, Franco adds to the whiny tone.

I really have not much to say positive about this novel. With a few lines of editing, it would be better as a YA instead of romance of which there is not. I'd give it a read if you into YA but as a serious romance novel -- thumbs down.

Ooh, I struggled during the first 1/3 of the book, mainly due to the fact that half the college patrons were just horrible, truly bitchy and nasty with it. Once I got into the story and understood the do's and the don'ts, the how's and the why's, etc etc, I felt a little more tolerance to The Elect (not to their blind followers though). Coming from a cow farm in a Wyoming, Tracey lived a sheltered life with her grandparents, she is naive when it comes to the running of and hierarchy of Eagle Elite. Not one to back down though, she does quite a good job of standing up for herself. Unfortunately she makes a number of enemies along the way. It soon becomes apparent she is not who she seems, Tracey though is unaware of her family background and for most of the book remains oblivious to the things going on around her. I loved the story and the writing and in the whole Chase or Nixon debate, I stand firmly in Nixon's court. Let's see if the next book will alter my opinion. Loved the narration. Spot on.
