Review: The Elite by Kiera Cass

Title: The Elite
Author: Kiera Cass
Publisher: HarperCollins
Rating: 5/5 stars


In America Singer’s world, a bride is chosen for the prince through an elaborate televised competition. In the second book of the Selection series, America is one of only six girls left in the running. But is it Prince Maxon—and life as the queen—she wants? Or is it Aspen, her first love?

(From Goodreads)

My thoughts:

I received an e-copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Oh my gosh, guys. This book. THIS BOOK!!  
Where so I start?
First of all, if you haven't read The Selection, go read it now, or you won't know what the hell I'm talking about. If you have - good!! 
As I absolutely adored The Selection by Kiera Cass, I couldn't WAIT to read this book. When I received it - I won't lie - I squealed inside.
I needed more Prince Maxon. NEEDED!!
So the story follows on from The Selection. America - the main character - is confused and is finding it hard who to pick. Aspen or Maxon? Aspen or Maxon? This is pretty much happening throughout the book.
On one side, there's Aspen: truly caring, and would do anything for America. Then we have Prince Maxon: absolutely breath-taking and amazing in more ways than one.
So remain six girls. There aren't many left to pick from, but America is slowly feeling like she wants to be the one.  
I feel so sorry for America. She is torn between two guys, and is finding it very hard who to pick. She's also deciding if she chose Maxon, could she deal with the princess duties? I love America so much. She cares more for people around her than herself. She really does have a heart of gold, and you can totally understand what Maxon and Aspen see in her.
The romance in this book is so gushy and amazing. 
Maxon starts to act weird and flirt with the other girls. He is also spending more time with them. So I was really confused to that. What are you doing, Maxon - seriously?
The writing style is fantastic and drew me in. I honestly wanted to know more and read on. I'm not going to lie, I was hooked!
I love the cover. It's a girl - who we all can assume is America - in a red dress.
The beginning has me interested. I just wanted more and more. 
The ending ... how could you do that to me, Kiera Cass? I want to read the next book!
Overall, I gave this book five stars because I loved all of it. The romance, the storyline, the characters - all of it - was good.
I definitely recommend to anyone.
