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.

A Mafia Romance love triangle with no cheating.
I could easily become addicted to this series, I was hooked from the very beginning right up to the end.
A mafia series based within an Elite school that contains Mafia kids, there are so many like this recently but Rachel Van Dyken released this series beginning in 2013 so you could say it's one of the first of it's kind, I am so glad I finally got around to reading this.
Nixon is a young Mafia boss carrying the weight of his family on his shoulders while also in college, the plot contains other members of his family, his sister that goes to the same school and also his Mafia soldiers. Then there's Tracey who joins the school and hasn't a clue that she is crossing paths with the Mafia.
Tracey has lived with her Grandfather for years following the sudden death of her parents, she was taken to a secluded farm, Tracey's Grandfather is also a Mafia boss but Tracey has been sheltered, doesn't even know who her Grandfather really is and is therefore clueless of the Mafia ways and the people she is going to be mixing with and even up-to the point were she becomes in danger while out with Nixon she is still innocent and oblivious to the people and what is going on around her.
Nixon is immediately drawn to Tracey and her innocence when he first see's her but so is Chase his cousin who is a foot soldier of Nixon and as the plot progresses Chase is also assigned to protect Trace pushing them closer together but Trace only has eyes for the Mafia boss.
Two Mafia families that should be enemies, Trace and Nixon become the romeo ad Juliette in the middle of Mafia family wars.
With action, twists & turns, angst and a love triangle of the hearts in the mix of this Mafia read, I found it really addictive and a really good YA Mafia romance and I am looking forward to reading more.
ELITE doesn't really finish with a full hea, although it's not a cliffhanger it does leave you wanting more.
