In this story we meet Nora Randolph, who has been thrust into a completely new world, a new life and totally new experiences overnight. She is starting a new prestigious private school in London, having moved over with her Mum and her new partner, where all the rich, famous and privileged children go.
Immediately she is the outcast, and she can tell life is not going to be easy for her. Asher Frederick and his stuck up, elitist friends don't exactly give the warmest of welcomes. Asher also has another ulterior motive for his hatred towards Nora, but also a reason as to why he starts to befriend her.
As we got to learn more about the characters including the secondary ones in their circle of friends, they all grew on me more and more. I really liked Asher by the end of the book as he showed his reasons for his behaviour, his vulnerability and his fears. I loved how their feelings developed and how those feelings had the potential to ruin all of Asher's plans.
This story of full of Drama and angst. There is plenty of suspense and intrigue, to keep the pages turning and wondering what on earth was going to happen and how everything would pan out - because quite frankly it didn't look like it was going to end well!!
Over all the story flowed really well. I love Carrie Aarons writing style. My only thought is that the English dialect, and speech was almost a bit OTT! It was almost like she was trying too hard to sound English with the way they all spoke to one another!!
A really enjoyable read!
Privileged is about a two teenagers in their senior year of high school. A very high society high school in London where money and power are more important than friendship, family, and love. This was not where Nora thought she would ever be but fate stepped in and turned her world upside down. And the moment Asher saw her, he knew his would be too.
Nora is the new girl. The American. The daughter of a gold digger according to the press. Asher was waiting for her to show up at his school. She was exactly who he needed to get his revenge. What he didn't expect was for it to be so hard. She wasn't like the other girls. She was sassy, intelligent, and not materialistic like the girls he hung out with. He knew if he wasn't such a cold-hearted a- he might even like her. But he is who is he and has to do what needs to be done.
Nora knew it was going to be hard fitting into this world. The rich and privileged. She didn't want to be one of them but if she was going to survive the school year she had to try to understand them. And on her first day, she met Asher. An arrogant, hot, and most likely the biggest player in the game. She knew she should have stayed away but he is one charming brit. He seemed different when he was around her. She wanted to trust him. She wanted him to back down her walls. Will he be everything she wants or everything she despises?
This book surprised me. It really did. I do love a good teen drama. This one has the perfect amount. The characters are more mature. Nora and Asher both had to grow up faster than usual under different circumstances. Nora might be a little naive when it comes to her new world but she isn't stupid. Asher's life is different from the inside than to the outside world. It was great seeing them grow throughout the book.
Overall...it's a book full of life changes, heat, heartbreak, and suspense. I throughly enjoyed every minute of it!
Stay here, beautiful, and let us corrupt you.
There is something so magnetizing about Asher; he has that perfect mix of English gentleman and British bad boy.
“I’m not God, princess. But I can make you feel better than him.”
When I first started reading this book, I was struggling. Mainly because I felt Asher was a prat. A manipulative prat, and it was off putting. Then I started to get a better feel for who he was, and what he was protecting. I also had to understand the house he grew up in, and where the manipulation came from. Then my feelings towards him grew and I wanted to hug him and hit him at the same time.
Nora was very naive and even with her gift, it didn't give her streets smarts, but she learnt quickly in her new environment. Not everyone was happy with the circumstances that bought her to London but I liked her a lot. She was extremely smart, a little sassy but mostly the innocence made her quite endearing. When these two were together, I had this conflicting feeling of wanting them to be a couple but also knowing what he really thought. It had me transfixed and wishing for their HEA.
On the whole, after I sorted out my feelings for Asher, I enjoyed the story. I know I am reading a book of fiction, and not all things are true, but some things didn't feel factual. I can't say too much without giving away spoilers, but a few little things felt out of place. This didn't interfere with how the story played out and I was pleased with the outcome.

** Reviewed for JoandIsaLoveBooksBlog.
Nora is the new girl and she quickly catches the eye of Asher the top dog in a school full of the off spring of the rich and famous. When we first meet Asher I thought he was an entitled prick, I couldn't find one redeeming feature about him. As the story progressed we find out more about his home life and I finally got him. Nora is very clever girl but she's also naive and kind hearted unfortunately someone like that is ripe for manipulation and Asher is a master manipulator.
This was a good coming of age romance with a mystery bubbling under the surface. My only gripe is at times I felt Asher's dialogue was out of place for someone his age.
