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?

Privileged is a fast-paced page turner of a book. I finished it in a day. The story of Nora and Asher was intriguing. Nora learns how to navigate her new life. No one is what they seem and her new “allies” give new meaning to frienimies. Both Asher and Nora learn to let their guard down, learn to trust and love, and have to figure out what (and who) is important. This book definitely could not work if the characters were much older (both are 18). And it definitely has a great message of finding who you are and your priorities. Privileged was a great book and I look forward to reading more of Carrie Aaron’s work.
- London was turning me into a masochist. Maybe it was something in the water.
- And it hits me – I’ve never felt this way about any girl. About anyone. She could destroy me, already has, and doesn’t even know it.
