In a world of wealth and power, the rules of love and war are nothing as they seem.

Nora Randolph never wanted a life of luxury. But when her mother falls in love with the heir to the British throne, their small-town lives are uprooted and every little girl’s fantasy becomes her reality. All too quickly, she learns the dangers of running in circles with the world’s elite, especially when she attracts the attention of Winston Academy’s resident golden boy.

Asher Frederick has known nothing but favor and fortune. The son of London’s most influential family, his future has been written in stone since infancy. But a tragic childhood loss redirects his course, and revenge has been boiling in his blood for years. When innocent and unaware Nora lands in his path, it’s as if the universe hands him the ammunition to finally drag his enemy through the mud.

But as his plan for vengeance gets more twisted, so do his feelings for Nora. And as her immersion into the upper crust dives deeper, she struggles to keep the secret she’s been guarding for eighteen years.

Heavy lies the crown, and when the ultimate betrayal blindsides her, will either of them survive the consequences that come crashing down on their heads?

4 Stars for Privileged!

I love Carrie Aaron’s writing but her books are always so different so I didn’t know what to expect with this one. I’ll just say that I wasn’t disappointed. 

Nora is completely new to this new life she’s living. When her mother gets’s married, she is forced into a new world of rich teenagers and private schools and a new country. Nora has always wanted to just get by life flying under the radar but at her new school, that isn’t going to happen. Not if Asher can help it. 

Asher is a rich privileged teen. At the start of the book he has a plan to use Nora to get revenge for his family but as he carries on he realises he actually might have feelings for her. However, it might not be enough for them to overcome what’s yet to come.  Asher is a jerk, but he’s also complicated and I loved being inside his head and reading what he was thinking. Sometimes I was so frustrated but then there were moments where I really felt for him. Nora, on the other hand, was relatable, I liked being in her head because I could relate to the things she was going through. Nora and Asher had great chemistry that really added to this story and made them both perfect for each other. There were so many emotional moments and moments of vulnerability during the story that made the characters seem more real and more like the teenagers they are. 

I would recommend, even if you don’t like reading books based on high school kids. Carrie Aarons is really talented and I think you’re really missing out if you don’t give her a chance.
