Are you in?

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.

OMG. I don't even know where to begin with this one. I had a total love/hate relationship with this book. At moments I wanted to keep reading and snuggling with it. At other moments, I wanted to throw my e-reader against the wall and scream 'WTF?!' So many feelings. They're all over the place.

Trace wins a scholarship to a school that will help her with her future. On the first day she is pretty much bullied by the Elite in the school and is attracted to their leader. Like 'hello lady boner' type of attraction. Nixon is attracted to her too but he has a funny way of showing it. He goes hot and cold. One moment he is affectionate with her and the next—when they're around the Elite—he pushes her away and says things that make her cry.

The only light in Trace's world is Nixon's sister and Chase. Chase is introduced as the other point in the love triangle. At least for a hot minute but we all know who Trace really wants.

Then there's something about the mafia which I'm still a bit confused about. Like seriously confused.

In the end, I enjoyed the screwed up relationship between Trace and Nixon which probably says something about me. I look forward to book 2 of this series. Hopefully it will offer answers that I seek pertaining to Trace and Nixon's relationship. I feel like their story isn't resolved yet. It's like Gossip Girl meets The Sopranos with a side of WTF.
