#AudioReview – Elite (Eagle Elite #1) 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 purchased this audio book.

As far as narration goes it was OK I like to hear a male reading a male roll and female reading a female role. The narrator did a good job but there is just something about a female tying to sound masculine especially when there are so many different males.

Tracey is a farm girl who was raised by her grandparents after her parents died. She won a scholarship to Eagle Elite Collage. Tracey wants to make her grandparents proud. However, she learns very quickly things at Eagle Elite are not all fun and games. Well unless you call mind games a game. She literally runs into the Elect. You see they run the school you do as they say; you do not touch, look or speak to them EVER!!! Well Tracey broke all those rules on her first day. Her saving grace is her roommate Mo who happens to be the sister of the Elect’s leader.

Nixon is the controller of all that Eagle Elite. I honestly did not like him or the others for that matter. My heart ached for Tracey the way The Elect flipped that on and off switch so easily. Talk about a seesaw ride catching highs and drop to the lows. I have to say when secrets stated to be revealed I was like holy crap its hitting the fan now.

This was something new for me. I have not read many mafia books but this one stood out. The plot was great I felt as lost as Tracey did. I loved being in the dark like Trace was I was trying to figure out why is this happening to her why are they nice, then mean then nice again. I’m saying the roller coaster was insane. This one had me pulled in now I need more. OK going to down load Elect.
