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?
I generously received this ARC from Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review…
Holy moly! I still cannot believe that Privileged is only my second Carrie Aarons read because wow this author has managed to wiggle her way right into my heart with her captivating writing style. Right from that opening scene when Nora and Asher first met I was sucked in and ended up devouring the first 42% of the story before my eyes grew too tired and I had to rest for a couple hours before continuing. Literally five minutes after opening my eyes I was loading my kindle back up and finishing this one because I needed to know what happened next. Let me just say that I was extremely shocked and amazed by everything that took place during this story and I absolutely loved every single moment of it.
So what made me decide to read this story?! I must admit being the COVER WH*RE that I am it was the cover that initially drew me in, but the second that I read that little chapter sneak peek that Carrie Aarons posted I needed to read this one as soon as possible. The author did such an extraordinary job with this story and I thought that she did an amazing job transitioning an American teenager into her new life in England. Well it is a struggle to fit in at first, she eventually manages to find her place, but things aren’t always as they seem. Never get too comfortable because things do change quickly in the world of royalty!
Privileged by Carrie Aarons is hands down one of those stories that I believe is a one click worthy read! So make sure to pick up your copy of this book today!
