REVIEW: Elite by Rachel Van Dyken

Elite (Eagle Elite #1)Elite by Rachel Van Dyken
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

OK... so when I started the book out, I felt:


To say that I was NOT HAPPY with various behaviors would be an understatment!

How I felt about The Elect *said with sarcastic finger quotes*:


How I felt about Trace?

BUCK THE FUCK UP, GIRL! GET A FUCKING BACKBONE!!! *stomps off in feminine dissatisfaction*

However!! - (there's usually always a however), my opinion is changing... but I'm now so:


So... that's where I am at right now. Lets see what happens next. I have about 45% or so left to go.

~*~*~*~ UPDATE: Finished ~*~*~*~

OK... WOW. (0.0)

Have you ever read a book and you KNOW you're supposed to be all:

But all you can really muster up, since you figured that it was going to be either this or one other scenario, is this:

You know that there are scenes that are expected to be read like:

You, however, read them with all the excitement of:


Tracey: (Lead Female)

Nixon: (Lead Male)

Everyone Else:


Overall Thoughts?

This story had a lot of potential that I don't think it lived up to. Prime example, without going into spoilers, there comes a time/scene when Tracey should have been all:

Instead, she went all:

I mean.. c'mon! Give what her family history ended up being?? - Grow some 'nads, chica! Jesus!

And then there's a situation between her and the lead male, Nixon. When she SHOULD have been all:


But instead went all:


How I felt about it all as a whole:

Overall, lots of a potential lack of living up to it. It's not an awful read by any means, but it could be so much more, I feel!
