Publisher's Summary

The selection began with 35 girls. Now, with the group narrowed down to the Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon's love is fiercer than ever. The closer America gets to the crown, the more she struggles to figure out where her heart truly lies. Each moment she spends with Maxon is like a fairy tale, filled with breathless, glittering romance. But whenever she sees her first love, Aspen, standing guard, she's swept up in longing for the life they'd planned to share.
America is desperate for more time. But while she's torn between her two futures, the rest of the Elite know exactly what they want - and America's chance to choose is about to slip away.

This fan girl enjoyed triangles and all!

Just wow! Again, I can't believe how much I enjoyed this book. Like the Selection there were so many bad reviews that I almost didn't get this book. So glad I didn't listen to the haters. This book was amazing. There were so many twists and turns and I enjoyed learning more about the world that Kiera Cass has created.

I can sympathize with those who hated the love triangle. It's frustrating, but isn't that what a love triangle is suppose to do? Otherwise who cares about it?? This is suppose to be about a young girl who is confused and has a huge decision to make under a stressful situation. I really felt sympathy for her character. And I can totally understand how confused she must be over Maxon and Aspen.

I don't get the negative reviews, but everyone is entitled to their opinion. If you enjoyed the Selection then I'm sure you will enjoy this one too. Just don't expect everything to be wrapped up and given to you with a bow on top. This is a trilogy and there is still more to come. This 2nd installment definitely left me wanting more and anticipating the final installment.

I enjoyed the narrator and the cover art is simply breathtaking.

Can't wait for the next book.

America how could you?!

I cant. I CAN’T! If I never read another book with a love triangle it will be too soon. I loved the first book in this series. It was a fun lighthearted distopian which is not easy to do, and I really enjoyed it. This book... this book frustrated me more then any book has in a long, long time. Pretty much no story line but the ridiculous love triangle that goes nowhere by the way if anything it only gets more complicated.

America made every single bad decisoin she could think of and we endend this book exactly where we started.

Sure there are still some fun aspects of this book that made the first one so great, and yes, I will be reading/listening to the last one, but The Elite fell so short of my expectations I can hardly believe it.

If you can’t help but find out what happens next then listen to this one at your own risk. Maybe after this warning you will be able to enjoy it more. Good luck.
